Three FTSE 100 dividend shares for extra passive income in 2021

first_imgThree FTSE 100 dividend shares for extra passive income in 2021 After 35 years of investing in shares, I really appreciate the wisdom of Warren Buffett. The billionaire investor has inspired generations of investors with his superb sayings. Recently, one really hammered home the point of investing to me. Buffett remarked: “Rational people don’t risk what they have and need for what they don’t have and don’t need.” As an older investor, I know exactly what the Oracle of Omaha means. For me, this means don’t take excessive risks to generate decent returns. That’s why I’m always bargain-hunting in the FTSE 100 index for value shares paying decent dividends. Here are three Footsie stocks that I’m considering adding to my portfolio for extra passive income.FTSE 100 share #1: IMB (8.6%)My first FTSE 100 dividend darling is Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB). As the world’s fourth-largest tobacco company, this is not a stock for ethical investors. But this Bristol-based business is 120 years old, operates in 12o markets, and employs 27,500 people in 38 factories. Its popular cigarette brands include Davidoff, Gauloises, JPS, Kool, West, and Winston. ‘Imps’ sells 330bn cigarettes yearly in 160+ countries. This £15.2bn firm generates huge cash flows and pays fat cash dividends to shareholders. At Friday’s closing price of 1,608.5p, this stock trades on a lowly price-to-earnings ratio of 5.5 and an earnings yield of 18.2%. The dividend yield of 8.6% is among the highest on the London Stock Exchange. IMB’s net debt exceeded £10.3bn in 2020, which could be an issue. But I see it as manageable. I don’t own IMB today, but I’d like to.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Dividend stock #2: MNG (7.4%)On 30 September 2020, I argued that shares of investment manager M&G (LSE: MNG) were a real bargain. I said this FTSE 100 stock was incredibly cheap and surely mispriced at 159.5p. On Friday, the M&G share price closed at 245.6p, soaring more than half (+54%) in under nine months. Even after this surge, I still view M&G as a decent candidate for generating additional passive income. I said back in September that “M&G is a safe, solid, and even boring” share. Being a major asset manager in rising stock markets is highly profitable. That said, M&G faces stiff competition from bigger global players. Today, M&G shares trades on a price-to-earnings ratio of 5.6 and earnings yield of 17.9%. The dividend yield of 7.4% a year is double the FTSE 100’s prospective 2021 yield. I don’t own £6.4bn M&G, but it’s on my buy list.Income share #3: VOD (5.9%)My third income-generating champion is a household name: Vodafone Group (LSE: VOD). The £36.2bn telecoms group has 625m customers in 65 countries. On 10 May, this FTSE 100 share hit a 52-week high of 142.74p, but closed at 129.84p on Friday. Thanks to Covid-19, Vodafone’s 2020 results were disappointing, but it expects to bounce back in 2021/22. And while Vodafone’s profits recover, its huge cash flows continue to fund hefty cash dividends. At the current share price, this Footsie heavyweight offers a dividend yield of 5.9%. That’s over two percentage points higher than the FTSE 100’s dividend yield. Furthermore, in 2020, Vodafone paid out the fourth-largest total dividend among all UK-listed shares. Vodafone cut its dividend by two-fifths (40%) last year, which was a painful blow. But this previous deep cut makes the rebased dividend more sustainable, so it could rise over time. However, Vodafone’s free cash flow declined in 2020/21, while its capital expenditure climbed significantly. I don’t own VOD yet, but it’s on my buy list.

Kerevi and Tupou bully young Bulls winger with thumping tackles

first_imgWednesday Mar 14, 2018 Kerevi and Tupou bully young Bulls winger with thumping tackles The Reds came from behind to beat the Bulls 20-14 in round four of Super Rugby in Brisbane. Their physicality was an impressive aspect of the game, as you can see here with dominant tackles by centre Samu Kerevi and powerhouse prop, Taniela Tupou.Unfortunately for young Bulls winger Duncan Matthews, he was the recipient of two of the biggest hits, as both Kerevi and ‘Tongan Thor’ laid into him, with the later in particular throwing his sizeable frame about.Tupou, still just 21-years-old, recently extended his Reds contract until 2020.“Ballymore is my second home and the Reds are like my second family,” he said. “This is where I started my professional career and I really want to contribute to the team.”“We’re learning a lot from Brad (Thorn). He knows how to win. We’re a young team who are working hard for each other, it feels like we are heading in the right direction and I want to be a part of that.”MATCH HIGHLIGHTSSigned straight out of school, Tupou made his Super Rugby debut in 2016 and last year earned his first Wallabies cap, as well as having a run out for the Barbarians in Sydney.Known for his big carriers and deft footwork for a man weighing around 135kg’s, he has worked hard to be a complete rugby player, as coach Thorn can testify to. “He might still be known for his big runs, but he’s worked incredibly hard to develop the rest of his game and I’d like to think he’s known as a tighthead prop and a scrummager now too,” Thorn said.“Taniela is only 21 and he’s developed a lot since joining the Reds as an 18-year-old. We’re pleased he has committed to Ballymore and the team for another two years and it’s exciting to think how much more development he has in him if he continues to work hard.”His tackle on Matthews looked borderline illegal, as he simply ran into him before wrapping his arms. It demonstrated the size difference between the two, and the power of the young man.Wallabies teammate Kerevi was equally impressive, reading play well to smash Matthews and then also put a stop to the dangerous Bulls and Springbok centre, Jesse Kriel.The win places them in second on the Australia conference, behind the Melbourne Rebels.THE BIG HITScredit: sanzaar/rugby.com.auADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Fitzroy North House / MMAD Architecture

first_img Year:  Architects: MMAD Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Houses Projects Fitzroy North House / MMAD Architecture City:Fitzroy NorthCountry:AustraliaMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!© Jack LovelRecommended ProductsWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesWoodTechnowoodPergola SystemsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEADoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcText description provided by the architects. The initial design challenge was convincing council that the design would have very little impact on the streetscape in particular the inclusion of a roof deck directly behind the heritage parapet. Council was reluctant to allow any change to the roofline to the original front two rooms of the house. After some time preparing 3D models and negotiating with council they thankfully came on board with the idea and the proof is that people walking past are none the wiser to there being any change to the original house. Save this picture!© Jack LovelThe hero of the roof deck was always the retention and restoration of the original chimney. During construction a major challenge was how to stabilise a 100year old chimney now the roof was removed. The bar seating was introduced with the help of the structural engineer to support the chimney with steel beams fixed into the sides making sure it didn’t topple over. The design focuses on the centre of the house with the creation of a double volume flooding the space with natural light.Save this picture!© Jack LovelSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Jack LovelIt is here that the stairs are inserted perpendicular to the general axis of the house and split the house on the horizontal and vertical plane. At ground level they’re a feature, room divider, furniture and storage. On the upper levels they connect to a three quarter level oversized landing that serves as a study. Here the clients are able to feel separation and retreat for working whilst still having visual connection to the kitchen and living areas.Save this picture!© Jack LovelA short return run of stairs lands in the middle of the house that overlooks the void spaces to the ground floor. It’s function is to capture and filter light as well as allow for the connection to rooms at the front and the rear. It is here also that the laundry is hidden within a wall of joinery. The arrangement of the stair means rooms are able to utilise the full width of the site and maximises floor space even with the introduction of the void. Save this picture!© Jack LovelInternally, rather than separating spaces with solid walls, glazed walls are used to separate the void and the sitting room that connects to the roof deck. This allows for natural light to flood the ground floor level and depending on the season even reaching into the ground floor living room at the rear of the site. An added benefit is that the chimney can also be seen internally from the ground floor.Save this picture!SectionsA small gesture to the clients brief but something that draws you upstairs to explore further. The roof deck over the front of the house serves many uses. It provides an additional outdoor space and flexibility in use and is almost the same size as the rear courtyard. It’s designed to provide year round opportunities for entertaining and relaxing.Save this picture!© Jack LovelIn the summer the rear courtyard is a haven, sheltered from the scorching sun where as in winter, even on the cooler days, the roof deck is a great space to sit in the sun and overlook the trees and neighbouring rooftops. But most of all the roof deck is an opportunity to get up close and personal with the heritage features of the chimney and parapet. It allows the clients to immerse themselves in the detail at all times not just admiring from afar at the street level.Save this picture!© Jack LovelProject gallerySee allShow lessScientific Research Innovation Zone of Shandong Youth Political College / SAU+ ShanD…Selected ProjectsInternational Exchange Center / TJADSelected Projects Share Australia Lead Architect: “COPY” CopyHouses•Fitzroy North, Australia Photographs DIMPAT 2016 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924368/fitzroy-north-house-dimpat Clipboard Fitzroy North House / MMAD ArchitectureSave this projectSaveFitzroy North House / MMAD ArchitectureSave this picture!© Jack Lovel+ 37Curated by María Francisca González Share Area:  285 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ArchDaily Michael Montgomery ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/924368/fitzroy-north-house-dimpat Clipboard Builder: Photographs:  Jack Lovel “COPY” CopyAbout this officeMMAD ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesFitzroy NorthAustraliaPublished on September 06, 2019Cite: “Fitzroy North House / MMAD Architecture” 05 Sep 2019.

Missed shots, rebounds cost TCU against No. 2 Baylor

first_imgDean Strakahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dean-straka/ Equestrian upsets No. 1 Baylor, swept by Texas A&M at NCEA Championships Twitter Men’s tennis clinches consecutive Big 12 titles with win over No. 4 Baylor printThe Horned Frogs had no answers for No. 2 Baylor at home Sunday afternoon in, falling to the Bears 91-73 at the Schollmaier Arena, ending a three-game winning streak for TCU.AJ Alix recorded her third contest in a row with more than 20 points (21), while Jada Butts scored 14 points with eight rebounds for the Frogs. The performances from the two however were not enough from keeping the Bears from taking care of business and handing the Frogs a lopsided loss.The Frogs managed to keep the contest close in the early going, only trailing 16-10 at the end of the first quarter. An inability to sink three pointers would catch up to them however, as the Bears doubled their lead to 12 by halftime, 41-29.Though TCU only trailed by 11 three quarters through thanks to a 23-point effort in the third frame, Baylor would seal the deal with a 28-point fourth quarter, putting the game out of reach.The Frogs only shot 39.9 percent from the field in the loss opposed to 43.4 percent from the Bears. Three-point shooting was the kicker though, as the Frogs only managed to go 16.7 percent from downtown while the Bears sunk 42.9 percent of their looks from deep.Rebounding also plagued the Frogs, as Baylor finished with a 55-30 edge and scored 29 points off second chances. Only six of TCU’s 73 points came off rebounds.The loss came just 24 hours after the men’s team lost in near identical fashion to No. 6 Baylor – an 18 point defeat to end a three-game winning streak, albeit in Waco opposed to Fort Worth.The Frogs return to action on Wednesday night when they take on Oklahoma State in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Sustained crackdown on independent reporting in Morocco

first_img Help by sharing this information Media freedom has been in retreat in the past few months in Morocco, as the kingdom’s authorities have cracked down on journalists and three government bills that could improve the legislative environment for the media have stalled in parliament. Organisation April 15, 2021 Find out more Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance News News News Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Receive email alerts News RSF_en April 28, 2021 Find out more March 5, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Sustained crackdown on independent reporting in Morocco Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa Hunger strike is last resort for some imprisoned Moroccan journalists to go further Officials have above all been putting pressure on the press to ensure that “sensitive” subjects are not covered in a free and independent manner.One of the most spectacular examples of this crackdown was the deportation on 16 February of French journalists Jean-Louis Perez and Pierre Chautard, who were doing a report for France 3 on the economic and social situation in Morocco four years after the “Moroccan Spring.”Before seizing their video recordings and putting them on a flight to Paris, the authorities “arrested” them at the headquarters of Moroccan Association of Human Rights (AMDH), one of the country’s leading human rights NGOs, which the interior ministry has accused of “undermining the actions of the security forces.” This operation was carried by about 20 police officers and representatives of the Rabat wilaya (regional government), who injured an activist as they stormed into the AMDH’s headquarters.In a release following the raid, Reporters Without Borders condemned this disgraceful act of censorship and urged the authorities to return the confiscated video material.In January, a France 24 crew was prevented from filming a programme in the series “Hadith Al Awassim” (Debated in Capital Cities) in an auditorium it had rented in Rabat. Accompanied by police officers, an interior ministry official arrived and ordered the journalists to cut short the filming of the programme (entitled “Can we laugh about everything?”). He also confiscated the video footage they had recorded, returning it the next day after viewing it.Without giving any explanation, the authorities prevented an international conference on investigative journalism from being held in a Rabat hotel on 22 January on the initiative of Germany’s Friedrich Naumann Foundation. Journalists and experts from Morocco, France, Egypt, Tunisia, Algeria and other countries, as well as Moroccan communication minister Mustapha El Khalfi, were to have taken part but, on the eve of the conference, the interior ministry gave the hotel’s management verbal instructions to prevent it from taking place.As a result, the organizers had to change the venue and hold the conference at the AMDH’s headquarters without the minister.Sahrawi journalist Mahmod Al-Lhaissan was released provisionally on 25 February, eight months after his arrest in El Aaiún, the capital of Western Sahara (a territory controlled by Morocco since 1975) but is still facing trial on charges of participating in an “armed gathering,” obstructing a public thoroughfare, attacking officials while they were on duty, and damaging public property.Lhaissan is a reporter for a TV station operated by the Polisario Front, a Sahrawi pro-independence movement backed by Algeria. According to local NGOs, he was arrested because of his coverage of Sahrawi demonstrations after an Algeria-Germany World Cup match on 30 June that quickly took on a pro-independence character. His coverage drew attention to the force used by the Moroccan police to disperse demonstrators.Meanwhile, the three media reform bills – on “press and publishing,” the “status of professional journalists” and the “National Press Council” – that the communication ministry unveiled on 18 October have yet to be adopted by parliament.In its comments on the reform package in November, Reporters Without Borders noted that the abolition of prison sentences for most media offences (but not insulting the king or religion or “endangering” territorial integrity) was one of its most innovative aspects.But journalists fear that disproportionate and exorbitant fines will replace prison terms, and are calling for changes to the legislative package.“The provisions on the confidentiality of journalists’ sources and defamation proceedings are a big step forward but they need to be tightened and reinforced in order to constitute effective guarantees,” Reporters Without Borders said.
