A dirt-cheap 8.5%-yielding FTSE 100 dividend stock that I’d buy for 2021

first_imgA dirt-cheap 8.5%-yielding FTSE 100 dividend stock that I’d buy for 2021 There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Image source: Getty Images Following the Bank of England’s decision to slash interest rates earlier this year, rates on savings accounts have plunged. However, high-quality blue-chip dividend stocks could provide an alternative. With that in mind, today I’m going to take a look at a dirt-cheap FTSE 100 dividend stock that one may benefit from buying in 2021.FTSE 100 dividend stockWhen it comes to dividends, tobacco giant British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) stands in a league of its own. Ethical considerations aside, this business is a dividend champion. 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…The group has consistently paid and maintained a high level of payouts to investors. It doesn’t look as if this is going to change any time soon. In many ways, the organisation is designed to produce high cash returns for investors. The group’s large profit margins and competitive advantages mean it is highly cash generative. And unlike many other companies, which have to reinvest substantial sums back into the business to remain competitive, this FTSE 100 dividend stock has no need to do that. For example, last year, the group only reinvested £800m compared to the overall cash generated from operations of £9bn. The rest was available for distribution to investors. Dividend championWith so much cash available for distribution, it should come as no surprise that British American is a dividend champion. At the time of writing, the stock supports a dividend yield of 8.5%. That is more than double the FTSE 100 average.It’s also extremely attractive compared to the average interest rate on savings accounts. According to my research, the best interest rate available on flexible savings accounts right now is less than 1% on average.As well as the high level of dividend income the FTSE 100 dividend stock has the potential to provide, it also looks cheap. According to current analysts forecasts, shares in the blue-chip income stock are currently changing hands at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 7.4. The market average P/E is 13.6. That’s a big gap. As such, it appears to me that the shares could offer a wide margin of safety at current levels. This implies that one may see high total returns from the investment over the long term through a combination of income and capital growth. The bottom lineMany UK shares are currently facing an uncertain outlook. The combination of Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic have severely impacted investor sentiment towards these businesses. Nevertheless, as these headwinds recede over the next 12 months, I reckon sentiment towards UK shares like British American will improve. Therefore, I think the stock could be worth buying for 2021. If investor sentiment begins to improve, the stock price could rise, which would mean investors would have to pay more to own part of this FTSE 100 dividend stock. One may benefit in the long run from buying ahead of this situation and paying a lower price.  Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Why I think the Lloyds share price could double in 2021

first_imgWhy I think the Lloyds share price could double in 2021 Alan Oscroft owns shares of Lloyds Banking Group. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Lloyds Banking Group. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Wouldn’t we all love to see our shares double in value next year? As a long-suffering holder of Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) shares, that’s the one I’d most like to see it happen to. So what might it take for the Lloyds share price to double in 2021?Things are starting to look a bit better after November’s mini-recovery. Those who bought at the end of October are already up 30%. But it’s small comfort for long-term shareholders.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…Forecasts for 2021 coupled with the current Lloyds share price suggest a forward P/E of 11. That looks low compared to the FTSE 100‘s long-term average. But a doubling in the share price would push the Lloyds’ P/E to 22. And that’s a bit rich, even for a share on a forecast dividend yield of 5%.Analysts are predicting a 60% drop in earnings per share for 2020, and that is weighing heavily on the Lloyds share price. But with so much uncertainty, there must be a number of factors built in that might not be as bad as feared.Lloyds share price threatsOne is surely Brexit and the question of whether or not we’ll get an EU trade deal. If we don’t, I expect the outlook for Lloyds to darken. Though Lloyds is UK-focused these days, a no-deal departure would be sure to damage the UK’s economy. The extent is debatable, but any economic harm would surely feed through to the banking sector.But if we do get a deal, I’d expect to see Lloyds sentiment brightening. And whatever downside analysts have factored in to Lloyds forecasts will need to be lifted. In the short term, I’d expect the Lloyds share price to rise in the event of a deal, and fall if there isn’t one. But the slightly longer-term effect will be on the the bank’s 2021 prospects.Forecasts for 2021 suggest earnings per share growth of around 130%. That might sound impressive, but it wouldn’t quite get us back to 2018 levels. Yet a decent Brexit deal outcome should lead to a better economic performance in 2021. I’d expect that to feed through to the housing market. Lloyds’ mortgage business is actually still pretty healthy, and any property boost would surely help Lloyds shares.Multiple positive outcomes?I also don’t think the possible upside from the rollout of Covid-19 vaccinations has been fully incorporated into economic expectations for 2021. On the wider stage, I think such caution is very wise. But on the upside, we could see a considerably better 2021 than our gloomy winter outlook currently suggests.A confidence boost could result in Lloyds paying a bigger dividend than expected. The current 5% yield is from a predicted dividend of just 1.7p, still well below 2018’s 3.2p. Anything better than that, and we might see an uprating.Overall, we would need a succession of good news events to see the Lloyds share price doubling in 2021. So I have to admit it’s a bit of a stretch. I do think it’s possible, though. I’m bullish over Lloyds for 2021 either way. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Durham, N.C., Protests say ‘No!’ to new cop HQ

first_imgThose struggling to shut down the city’s plans to build a $81 million police headquarters here held their seventh weekly picket outside Durham City Hall on May 16. A coalition of groups known as “Durham Beyond Policing” opposes the new headquarters. Pickets are set to continue as the city debates its budget throughout June.Earlier, Durham Beyond Policing had given to the council May 16 as a deadline to respond to the call from the community to stop the plans to build the new headquarters. The coalition includes the Black Youth Project 100 (BYP100) Durham chapter; the Durham city workers union, Electrical Workers Local 150; the Say Her Name collective; Southerners on New Ground (SONG); and others.When the deadline came and passed with no response, city workers and community members marched into the council’s meeting that night and disrupted it with a mic check. The demonstrators reiterated the overwhelming opposition to the new headquarters from the broader Durham community.The May 16 action and the pickets at city hall are part of a struggle that has been building throughout the year. In 2015, the Durham City Council approved a budget of $62 million to build the new police headquarters in East Durham. There, the building would encroach on working-class communities of color and signify Durham’s rapid gentrification. The cost has since grown by $19 million.City workers and community members have demanded a “People’s Budget” that serves their needs instead of funding cops and jails. The People’s Budget includes demands for housing, health care, childcare, raises and improved conditions for city workers, and more. Durham Beyond Policing has also gathered more than 500 signatures from the community where the new headquarters is to be built, calling for the immediate end to the city’s plans and support for a People’s Budget.Pickets and other actions are planned to mobilize the widespread opposition to the new cop castle and fight for a People’s Budget.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Disturbance, colonization and development of Antarctic benthic communities

first_imgA decade has yielded much progress in understanding polar disturbance and community recovery—mainly through quantifying ice scour rates, other disturbance levels, larval abundance and diversity, colonization rates and response of benthos to predicted climate change. The continental shelf around Antarctica is clearly subject to massive disturbance, but remarkably across so many scales. In summer, millions of icebergs from sizes smaller than cars to larger than countries ground out and gouge the sea floor and crush the benthic communities there, while the highest wind speeds create the highest waves to pound the coast. In winter, the calm associated with the sea surface freezing creates the clearest marine water in the world. But in winter, an ice foot encases coastal life and anchor ice rips benthos from the sea floor. Over tens and hundreds of thousands of years, glaciations have done the same on continental scales—ice sheets have bulldozed the seabed and the zoobenthos to edge of shelves. We detail and rank modern disturbance levels (from most to least): ice; asteroid impacts; sediment instability; wind/wave action; pollution; UV irradiation; volcanism; trawling; non-indigenous species; freshwater inundation; and temperature stress. Benthic organisms have had to recolonize local scourings and continental shelves repeatedly, yet a decade of studies have demonstrated that they have (compared with lower latitudes) slow tempos of reproduction, colonization and growth. Despite massive disturbance levels and slow recolonization potential, the Antarctic shelf has a much richer fauna than would be expected for its area. Now, West Antarctica is among the fastest warming regions and its organisms face new rapid changes. In the next century, temperature stress and non-indigenous species will drastically rise to become dominant disturbances to the Antarctic life. Here, we describe the potential for benthic organisms to respond to disturbance, focusing particularly on what we know now that we did not a decade ago.last_img read more
