These measures are likely to be discussed in detail at the European Union summit on March 24-25.He said Portugal was doing what is needed to put its public finances in order and “does not need external help”. The government aims to cut the budget deficit this year to 4.6 per cent from gross domestic product after beating last year’s target of 7.3 per cent.The yield on the September 2013 bond soared to 5.993 per cent from 4.086 per cent in an auction last September, also surpassing the 5.396 yield in the sale of a longer-dated October 2014 paper in January.“With yields at these levels this outcome will do nothing to challenge expectations Portugal is heading for a bailout and in somewhat short order,” said Rabobank strategist Richard McGuire.Still, the yield at the auction came at the lower end of secondary market rates and the IGCP debt agency sold all €1bn (£861m) on offer, with demand outstripping supply by 1.6 times. whatsapp Wednesday 9 March 2011 2:32 pm alison.lock by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople TodayBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.comElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepedialast_img read more

In 2018-19, AGLC issued more than 14,000 raffle licences and from that, more than $170 million was raised in support of programs and services important to Albertans.”As well as making 50/50 raffle tickets available online, AGLC is reducing the limit for the allowable use of random number generators (RNGs). Previously, RNGs were permitted to be used only on draws where the total value of ticket sales exceeded CAD$1m.After consulting with stakeholders, the threshold for allowing the use of RNGs has been lowered to $100,000 in ticket sales.Read the full story on iGB North America.

That’s why I’ll buy these shares in May – because I want to stick to buying profitable, established companies in stable industries.Slow and steadyShares in insurer Admiral (LSE: ADM) are much like the advice they’d issue to their drivers, slow and steady. If you invest in shares for fun, then they’re not for you. If you invest in shares for long-term wealth generation then I think they could be just the ticket.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…Regardless of what happens in the economy, drivers are required by law to pay car insurance. It’s a great market to be in. Admiral is making so much money it’s happy to return £110m to customers who are now driving less – and therefore crashing less – because of the coronavirus.Why is that good for investors? On the face of it it’s not, but what it does show is the strength of the management’s confidence in the business. In an industry where customer loyalty is hard to get, this gesture may well have long-term benefits.Admiral has pulled its special dividend but is sticking with its final dividend of 56.3p. Good news for income-focused investors in the face of many dividend cuts elsewhere.I also like Admiral’s growth beyond the UK. The insurer now has operations Spain, Italy, France, the US, Mexico, and Turkey, and has over 6.5 million customers worldwide. It’s also more than a car insurer, moving into other forms of insurance and even comparison websites. For example, it owns confused.com. This is why I think the future looks very bright for the company.Roster of global brandsBeverages giant Diageo (LSE: DGE) also has defensive qualities which should allow it to keep paying out to shareholders, in the form of dividends, and grow the share price, regardless of the economic situation.Diageo is neither the cheapest nor the highest yielding of shares, but that’s fine if you believe, as I do, that it has the ability to grow earnings year-on-year. The price-to-earnings is around 21 and the dividend yield is 2.5%.What’s to like about the £65bn FTSE 100 company are its roster of market-leading brands, the global reach and its balance sheet strength. Growth into emerging markets is a particular area that excites me, with Diageo growing in both China and India. These are markets which offer huge growth and earnings potential.For this quality I’m happy to pay, especially in the current uncertain market. As the price shows, other investors are also willing to pay for this quality share. It’s not cheap but it is very good and is a share that many investors would happily hold for the long term.The yield may also not be high, but the dividend increases stretch back to the 1990s. Given the 2008–09 recession and the current market environment, that’s an enviable record. Chasing high yields rather than a sustainable, growing dividend seems folly right now when even Shell has cut its payout to investors. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. 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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” See all posts by Andy Rosslast_img read more

USDA’s First ’21 Farm Income Forecast Lower Than ’20 but Still…

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By USDA Communications – Feb 8, 2021 Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA’s First ’21 Farm Income Forecast Lower Than ’20 but Still Above… Previous articleCall for 2021 Purdue Women in Agriculture Award NominationsNext articleHAT Market Analysis for 2/8/21 with John Zanker of Risk Management Commodities USDA Communications When it comes to farm income in 2021 according to USDA’s first forecast, “We’re going to have another above average year,” even though farm income will be lower than it was last year. That according to USDA Chief Economist Seth Meyer.USDA is forecasting net cash farm income this year at $128.3 billion, down almost 6% from last year. Meyer says this will be an unusual year as commodity prices will be much higher, but overall farm income will still fall.“Because government payments are trailing off, assumed to trail off, from things like Coronavirus Food Assistance (CFAP) and Market Facilitation payments of the prior years,” says Meyer.Farmers are likely to get 45% less in government payments compared to last year.Meanwhile, farmers will sell more product at mostly higher prices.“Total cash receipts up $20.4 billion, up $11.8 billion for crops and up $8.6 billion for livestock.”That is primarily driven by the rising prices for hogs on the livestock side and corn and beans on the crop side.
