With £2,000 to invest in FTSE 250 dividend shares, here’s what I’d buy

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. With £2,000 to invest in FTSE 250 dividend shares, here’s what I’d buy Image source: Getty Images. If I were forced to pick a handful of FTSE 250 stocks to hold for income over the next few years, beverage maker Britvic (LSE: BVIC) would likely make the cut. That’s not to say the Hemel Hempstead-based£2bn cap is immune to setbacks or devoid of risk. Today’s trading update is evidence of that. FTSE 250 dividend stockAs one might expect, coronavirus-related restrictions in the run-up to Christmas, coupled with the third UK lockdown soon after, heaped more pressure on the hospitality sector. Understandably, this has impacted Britvic — the owner of soft drink brands such as Robinsons, J20 and R Whites.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…Total revenue for Q1 of its financial year was a touch over £328m. On a reported basis, that’s a fall of 9.8%. In its GB market, total revenue fell 4.1% thanks to a huge 32% tumble in ‘out-of-home’ sales. Overseas revenue fell more than 19%, although sales in Brazil were a bright spot, rising almost 26%. Naturally, the outlook for this FTSE 250 member’s profits is as cloudy as it is for most businesses. Today, Britvic said that it expects restrictions to stay during Q2 and that performance would continue to be “significantly affected“.Not that CEO Simon Litherland seems too concerned. Commenting today, he said that Britvic is confident that it will “continue to successfully navigate the pandemic, emerge stronger, and be at the forefront of the recovery when it comes”. Time will tell. In the meantime, analysts have Britvic returning 26.3p per share to shareholders in FY21. Taking today’s 4% tumble in the share price into account, that equates to a forecast yield of 3.6%. For an established company in the resilient beverage sector, that really helps to mitigate the risk, in my opinion.What’s more, Britvic’s shares still look reasonably priced at 15 times earnings before markets opened. Although capital gains are not the point for me when I’m looking to generate income, I think we could see the stock fizz when pubs, bars and cafes are allowed to reopen. Chunky cash returnsAnother FTSE 250 stock offering a great source of dividends, in my opinion, is online trading platform IG Group (LSE: IGG).A little over one week ago, it released a set of record-breaking H1 numbers to the market. Thanks to existing and new clients being so active, net trading revenue increased 67% to almost £417m. Pre-tax profit jumped 129% to £231.3m. In addition to these figures, IG also announced its proposed acquisition of US site tastytrade. This will give the £3bn cap a route into the fast-growing market of exchange-traded options and futures. It will also further diversify the company’s earnings by geography.   Naturally, all investment involves risk and IG is no exception. While the shares have been riding a wave of positive momentum following the Covid-19 pandemic, there will come a time when clients become less active. The possibility of even more regulation of its industry can’t be dismissed either.Even so, the dividends alone give me a reason to stay invested.  Assuming there’s no change to its 43.2p per share payout in this financial year, IG yields 5.8% at its current share price. That’s a lot more than I’d get from even the best Cash ISA.Like Britvic, IG’s valuation is also inviting. A P/E of 12 looks cheap to me for a market leader generating high margins and returns on the money it invests.

Ireland sneak a win despite poor discipline

first_imgEoin Reddan celebrates scoring his first-half try IRELAND HUNG on to claim a victory at Murrayfield on Sunday despite Scotland’s attempted comeback in the last quarter of the match. Jamie Heaslip, Eoin Reddan and Man of the Match Ronan O’Gara all crossed for Ireland, but the visitors’ indiscipline cost them and gifted Scotland all of their points.The penaltiesScotland coach Andy Robinson was left incensed by the the disparity in the penalty count – Ireland conceded 12 penalties while his side conceded just four, yet it was Scottish loosehead Allan Jacobsen who was sent to the sin bin in the 45th minute.“I have two issues with the game,” said Robinson. “The high Irish penalty count and the fact that none of their players was sent to the sin bin, and the fact that they slowed down our ball illegally. The scrum just after half time when Jacobsen was sent to the sin bin was a major turning point in the game. To lose a player like that is very hard to come back from.“I’m trying to speak to the referee, but it’s probably best if I don’t at the moment,” continued Robinson. “I want to know why he made those calls.”Robinson’s counterpart, Declan Kidney, admitted that too many penalties had been conceded, and said he had been working with the referees to try and resolve this problem. Dan Parks brought a higher tempo to the game when he was brought on for Ruaridh Jackson in the 54th minute, and his penalty kick with 14 minutes to go took the scores to 15-21, and awoke the 63,000 crowd in their support. Despite a Parks drop goal taking them to within three of a draw, Robinson insists it was important for the side to concentrate on getting the win, not just the draw. Richie Gray (left) stole two lineouts from Ireland, and continues to impress in the second row.Meanwhile Ireland were once again pleased with their try count – they have scored three in each their last two games – and will be left scratching their heads as to why their win today was so laboured in the circumstances. Furthermore, Ronan O’Gara appears to be playing – and enjoying – some of his best rugby in a green jersey, and he and Jonathan Sexton are giving the coaches an enviable selection headache. “A few of the penalties were our own making and I’d like to look into some of the others,” said Kidney. “We’re not complaining today. We’ve been working with the referees, I’ve met them and they’re all good men who go out and give their best opinion. It’s a difficult job.“We need to work on what’s in our control. It’s a tough game but I’ve no doubt that all 45 men on the pitch put in a decent effort.”The positivesAside from the disciplinary issues that arose from the match, Andy Robinson was delighted with a much-improved performance on two weeks ago, when Scotland were thrashed 24-6 by Wales. The team showed great character right until the final whistle, and strong running by Max Evans in the last quarter brought them close to scoring a try for the first time in the game.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Bathyard home is an energetically rehabilitated, 130m2 residential apartment in a building dating from 1900 for a woman, her family and her plants. After several years of living in the suburbs with her sons, who have now grown up and are about to leave home, she decided to return to a central location in Madrid. She dreamed of having a spacious bathroom, the possibility of bringing with her some of the plants she had had in her former house, and a living room where she could share, among other things, long cinema and TV sessions together with her sons. Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)Before rehabilitation, the apartment was energy-inefficient and dark, almost completely facing north and west, with the exception of one window that gave onto an interior patio. The latter was the only one facing south, the most favorable orientation climatically, but it was wasted on a corridor and storage area.

Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)The original apartment was transformed by introducing a few changes in the partition walls while maintaining the original structure intact. With simple modifications, the project reoriented a large part of the house to the south. This was achieved by creating a new type of domestic interior: a bathyard, a space that generates a new “exterior” inside the apartment and lends passive thermal and light comfort to the entire home. The bathyard is a space whose character can be negotiated and altered by the users by sliding transparent partitions and opening out a folding bench. It is a place where different activities can overlap and be shared, such as trying on clothes, enjoying breakfast, or having a conversation while one is taking a bath and the other is sitting on the folding bench. And of course, it can also be the setting of a glorious solitary bath experience.Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)

Between the bathtub space and a more private room with shower and toilet, facing the south window, there is a small greenhouse, equipped with a drip irrigation system, which accommodates different types of ferns, rubber plants, philodendrons and marantas, among others. It is the only space in the flat where underfloor heating was not installed, in order to prevent drying out the atmosphere of the garden. Instead, the garden is heated by its contact with the other spaces in the apartment and by direct exposure to sunlight through the window.Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)

Its strategic location between two humid spaces – the shower and bathtub rooms – contributes to a more humid environment for the vegetation. The central position of this space within the flat facilitates cross-ventilation and the enjoyment of a new landscape facing south. The new bathyard distribution and the insulation of the facade walls, floor slabs and ceilings help to maintain the apartment at 18°C to 20°C in most winter days without switching on the newly installed underfloor heating system.

The wooden-framed, movable partitions have different degrees of transparency: some have semi-reflective screens, which are strategically positioned with surprising effects, for instance reflecting the sunlight towards the master bedroom in the morning. You can also see the reflected images of the bathtub among the plants at different angles from the living space through an oculus.

Save this picture!© Imagen Subliminal (Miguel de Guzmán + Rocío Romero)The construction of this oculus, making use of a preexisting hole in the load-bearing wall that once formed part of cabinet, connects the bathyard with the living and dining spaces visually and climatically. A curtain, and a screen on the circular window control airflow and light, help to adjust the atmosphere in the living room and adapt it to spending time watching films and TV, depending on the wishes of the mother and her sons, thus connecting or separating the different social spaces in the house.Save this picture!Floor planProject gallerySee allShow lessFinnish Nature Center Haltia / Lahdelma & MahlamäkiSelected ProjectsSchool with an Open Space / Beijing Institute of Architectural Design 6th DivisionSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Madrid, Madrid, SpainLocation to be used only as a reference.

Rally marks 42nd anniversary of police attack on MOVE

first_imgMike Africa Jr. addresses rally at location of the old Powelton Village MOVE headquarters as supporters hold portraits of MOVE 9 members.Hundreds rallied at the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Aug. 8 to mark the 42 years since the police riot at the MOVE house in Powelton Village. Demonstrators demanded the release of political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal. The attack on the MOVE organization ended in the destruction of the family’s house and the fraudulent arrest of nine MOVE members. Decades of protests and movement pressure have succeeded in making this the first anniversary of the attack since all MOVE 9 members have been released. However, Phil and Merle Africa were killed by the prison system. Michael Sr., Debbie, Janet, Janine, Eddie and Chuck were all released on parole after 40 years of incarceration. Delbert Africa, who was brutally beaten by police on Aug. 8, 1978, was released early in 2020 but died in June from health problems caused by his 41 years of incarceration.  — Report and photo by Ted Kelly FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Credit card belonging to American tourist killed in Mexico resurfaces in Oklahoma City

first_imgiStock/welcomia(OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.) — A credit card belonging to an American tourist killed six months ago while on vacation in Mexico was recently used in Oklahoma City, police said.Taylor Meyer, a 27-year-old from California, was found dead last November in Playa del Carmen, near where he was staying with several friends to celebrate one of their 30th birthdays.On Friday, the Oklahoma City Police Department posted images of the man who used the card to its Facebook page, and requested the public’s help in identifying him “to hopefully help investigators get one step closer to solving this tragic crime.”“Through the course of the investigation detectives working the case found out the victim’s credit card was used here in [Oklahoma City],” police wrote in a Facebook post. The man seen in the photos was driving a silver SUV and he was accompanied by a woman at the time, Oklahoma City police said. They are urging anyone who knows the identity of the man to contact Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300 or submit a tip online (case #19-0028862).In an interview with ABC Los Angeles Station KABC following his death, Meyer’s parents said they were told that his body was found in a park not far from the bar where he had been with friends, and that his wallet, watch, shoes and iPhone had been taken.Playa del Carmen sits along the Caribbean Sea in eastern Mexico.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
