Looking for dividends? I’d buy this FTSE 100 income stock

first_img 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.

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Dividend cuts by UK companies have exceeded £30bn due to the coronavirus pandemic. This has deprived income investors of a key source of wealth. Nevertheless, there are still options for those looking for dividends. My personal favourite income stock is the insurance company Legal & General (LSE: LGEN).A consistent income stockThe main attraction of Legal & General is its dividend. It currently yields around 8%, and this has seen consistent growth over the past 10 years. But while such high yields can sometimes cause concern, this dividend seems very sustainable. Firstly, it has dividend cover of around 1.8. This means that only around half of the company’s profits are being used to pay shareholders. As a result, borrowing money to pay the dividend isn’t necessary, and profits can be reinvested in the company. This is a very positive sign for any income stock. 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…Furthermore, Legal & General seems very committed to its dividend. The insurer stuck with its final dividend despite regulatory pressure from the PRA (Prudential Regulation Authority). Its decision differs from other insurance companies like Aviva, which suspended its dividend due to the pandemic. This also indicates that it is in a strong position to pay its dividend. And it demonstrates the commitment to and focus on shareholders by management. A market leaderOf course, the dividend is nothing without a powerful business to back it up. Not only does Legal & General pay a large dividend, but it is also one of the largest asset managers in Europe. At the moment, assets under management total over £1trn, and this continues to grow. It is also the UK’s leader in bulk annuities, life insurance and other retirement products. Profits from these sectors have been driven by our ageing society, and this should continue to provide growth over the years ahead. The income stock also has a robust capital position with a Solvency II surplus of £6.9bn and a coverage ratio of 174%. This means that there should be no risk of insolvency.  Steady growthWhile the share price has basically moved sideways over the past few years, the income stock has seen significant growth recently. In fact, 2019 numbers were better than expected and operating profits rose by 12% to £2.1bn. Legal & General has also taken the shrewd move of issuing debt at current low interest rates. This should help the firm take advantage of new business opportunities, one of which includes further growth outside of Europe.All in all, I would buy this income stock. While the pandemic will have lessened its profits this year, it has also resulted in a 30% year-to-date share price fall. As a result, for a company that is both sticking to its strong and healthy dividend, and has future growth prospects, I believe LGEN’s low price is a good buying opportunity.

USA No 8 Cam Dolan

first_img Downtime with… USA No 8 Cam DolanWhat is it like on national tours? In August we were in Fiji, which was fantastic. The people were lovely and the food was delicious. Everything was fresh, which was awesome because you know we love our processed food in America!We went to one of the national rainforests and there were lots of waterfalls and pools you could swim in.You played for Northampton and Cardiff Blues. Where is home now? I’ve been in New Orleans since December. It’s the home of Mardi Gras and blues and jazz reign as king here. It’s known for music and primarily it’s Cajun food. The city is a bit rough round the edges but there’s so much good culture.What do you want to do after rugby?I want to get into commercial real estate. Not buying and selling but the agent side of it. It interests me because you’re talking to new people all the time, you’re not stuck in an office, and trying to get someone to buy or lease something almost has that competitiveness to it.When you lived in the UK, what did you miss about the US? I’m from south Florida where it’s warm most of the year – they call it the Sunshine State. Living in the East Midlands and Cardiff I missed the weather and Caribbean food. By that I mean Cuban, Dominican, Puerto Rican. You guys have Jamaican food but no Cuban sandwiches.Any pastimes you missed? Fishing and spearfishing are two of my favourite hobbies. It’s tough to do when you’re smack dab in the middle of the country. I like diving under the water and shooting fish like grouper or snapper. You can shoot lobster but I prefer diving for it. I did that down in Turks and Caicos.What was your worst-ever job? I was a busboy in a barbecue restaurant. Then I was a waiter in a diner. But working in McDonald’s for two weeks when I was 15 was probably my worst job. I got no tips and I had to be in there at 5.30am at the weekend.On the ball: Cam Dolan in action against Tonga during RWC 2019 (Getty Images)Do you have any superstitions? I have four or five songs I listen to in the same order, before I warm up. It includes Dreams and Nightmares by Meek Mill and Purple Lamborghini by Rick Ross. They are what you’d call ‘trappy’ songs.Any funny on-field moments? Thretton Palamo recently had his first game with the US in three years. He was trying to change his studs before the anthem. He finally got them in, runs out and forgets he’s still in his warm-up top. He’s halfway out and we’re saying, “Don’t you need a jersey?” He almost missed the anthem. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: USA Do you have any hidden talents?I’ve been told I’m a pretty damn good cook. I’ll cook whatever you want! I’m pretty good with breakfast, anything seafood related and I make good Mexican street tacos.What winds you up? Being woken up before I have to wake up. If my alarm is set for 8am and someone is making noises at 6am and wakes me up, that bothers me. Or a super-early phone call. I’m really into my sleep and if that gets broken it’s a struggle for me.Your three dream dinner guests… Tiger Woods, because he’s got this dry sense of humour and he’s one of the best ever to play golf. I’d then bring back Johnny Cash and Thomas Edison.Dinner guest: Tiger Woods tees off at an event in Japan (Getty Images)How many inventions did Edison come up with?He invented the light bulb! Where I was raised there’s a big museum for him and as a kid we always had field trips there.If you could be any team-mate, who would you be? I’d go with Ruben de Haas because he’s 20 years old and with the experience I have now but being 20, that would be quite valuable.What would you save in a house fire? A toss-up between my golf clubs and my PlayStation. The clubs as they are a bit more expensive and are worn in – I know what I’m getting out of them.Your guilty pleasure? Taco Bell, 100%.How would you like to be remembered? As a good team-mate who worked hard and brought out the best in everyone.center_img The Eagles back-rower talks about New Orleans, spearfishing and pre-match songs This article originally appeared in the November 2019 issue of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.last_img read more

Kevin the Tipster – England vs Scotland & Ireland vs Italy

first_imgFriday Sep 30, 2011 Kevin the Tipster – England vs Scotland & Ireland vs Italy We’ve just witnessed a massive game from Pool D and this weekend are another two huge matches, as England and Scotland meet in Pool B, while Italy take on Ireland in Pool C. Kevin The Tipster has had another go at predicting the results. Scotland lost control of a game they should have won against Argentina, but the South Americans kept their RWC hopes alive by sneaking a dramatic win after a brilliant late try. What’s that meant is that Scotland now need to beat England to avoid missing out on the quarter finals for the first time in their history.The odds on Scotland beating England by eight points or more, to deny them a bonus point, are 9/1. The stats say that Scotland have not beaten them by more than six points in the last 25 years though, and Paddy Power are offering just 6/5 that Scotland fail to score any tries in the game.Chris Ashton is 15/2 favourite to score the first try, and 25/1 to score a hat-trick, and with him being the top try scorer in New Zealand currently, he’s 10/3 favourite to remain top come the end of the tournament.The other game that the Tipster has gone for is the Ireland vs Italy match, a game that may have significant results for some of the other sides in the next round. Both teams must win in order to progress to the quarter finals, as you’d expect Australia to cruise through against Russia.So despite having beaten Australia, if Ireland slip up against Italy, they could be heading home.“Each game against them in the last four or five years has been getting harder and harder,” said Brian O’Driscoll. “We really had to pull it out of the bag to beat them in Rome. We always thought we could beat Australia but it hasn’t made the group any different.”It’s going to be another brilliant weekend of rugby.
