Post Offices to get £1.3bn of new funding

first_imgWednesday 27 October 2010 8:02 pm Post Offices to get £1.3bn of new funding whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ The government yesterday unveiled a £1.3bn funding package for the UK’s post office network. The Department for Business, Innovation & Skills said the 11,500 post offices would receive more than £330m a year for four years to maintain and modernise the network.Business secretary Vince Cable said the cash would allow post offices to extend their opening hours, reduce queues and provide more government services in a bid to reverse falling use of the network. Cable said the network was not for sale and there would be no more closures, although over time it could be mutualised and ownership and operation handed to staff, sub-postmasters and local communities. The government is planning to privatise the letter and parcel delivery service Royal Mail, saying it would allow it to benefit from private capital.At least a tenth of the shares in the privatised business would go to staff, the government will take on the service’s pension deficit and collection and the requirement to collect and deliver post six days a week at affordable prices would be protected. center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesDiscovery23+ Sports Stadiums Around the World That Are Abandoned NowDiscoveryMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Herald KCS-content Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Fear this crash could get worse? Here are 3 stocks I think could hold their own!

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. See all posts by Paul Summers The fact that big share price falls are both common and quick to pass, compared to the length of bull markets, might not be much comfort right now. After all, there’s a chance things could get worse before they get better. Having said this, not every company’s share price will necessarily suffer as a result of the coronavirus outbreak or other global fears. Here are three that could prove resilient. 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…“Trending substantially ahead”Companies operating in the spread betting/Contracts for Difference space are worth watching. Today, one of the three listed on the London market — Plus 500 (LSE: PLUS) — issued a positive update. Yes, you read that right.As a result of the fear that’s spread throughout the investing world over the last few days, the FTSE 250 constituent stated that it had seen “a significant increase in levels of customer trading activity” before going on to say that its financial performance over Q1 is“trending substantially ahead” of the same period last year. You’re not seeing language like that from many companies at the moment! Of course, no one knows if this momentum will last. That said, Plus’s shares were trading on what appeared to be a very cheap forecast price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of a little under 9 before markets opened this morning and yielding 5.8%. It’s next scheduled to report to the market in April. Downturn playWith Bank of England Governor Mark Carney warning that disruption to supply chains could mean a hit to UK growth prospects, it’s understandable if many businesses are getting nervous. Should a prolonged downturn come to pass, one company that may benefit is insolvency specialist Begbies Traynor (LSE: BEG).Even if you’re confident that the coronavirus outbreak won’t bring the economy to its knees, there’s always the impact of troublesome Brexit negotiations to ponder. Back in January, the company released research showing that just under half a million UK businesses were already in ” significant distress” — a rise of 81% since the beginning of 2016 (the same year as the EU referendum).Despite this, shares in Begbies certainly haven’t been immune to the recent sell-off and have now fallen back to prices not seen since last spring. This leaves them trading at 13 times earnings. A potential 2.8p dividend in the current financial year has the stock yielding 4.2%.Stable demandCall up a chart of its share price performance over the last week and you’ll see why funeral services provider Dignity (LSE: DTY) is the final pick of today’s shares that could protect your portfolio from the current crisis. Its price is currently up 4% since Monday, supposedly on the belief that demand for its what it does will remain stable, even during tough economic times. As always, there’s no sure thing when it comes to investing and Dignity could become another victim of the sell-off in time. That said, the fact that it was already trading on a little less than 9 times forecast earnings could mean it suffers less severe selling pressure than other, more highly-rated stocks. Regardless of what happens next, it’s worth being aware that the company has faced increased competition over the last few years. The shed-load of debt on the balance sheet is another potential red flag. Last year, the latter came in at almost twice the value of the whole company!

Enter Your Email Address It’s been a tough year for dividend investors, with many big names cutting or suspending their payouts. But income investing is a long-term game. Buying the best dividend stocks you can find today could be a good way to build a passive income for the years ahead.Today I’m looking at two companies I rate highly as income plays. Both of them have released very encouraging dividend updates in the last few days.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…Dependable defence dividendsFTSE 100 defence group BAE Systems (LSE: BA) has a very distinguished dividend record. Until this year, the firm had not cut or missed a payout since 1993 – 27 years. That record was broken in April, when the company decided to “defer the decision” on its 2019 final dividend.That decision has now been made. The payout is going ahead after all. This week BAE declared an unchanged half-year dividend of 9.4p and said that last year’s final dividend of 13.8p will also be paid later this year.It’s good news for shareholders, and I believe BAE can afford the payment. The disruption to its business this year has been relatively minimal, compared to many other companies. Revenue rose by 6% to £9.2bn during the first half of the year and BAE’s order backlog climbed to £46.1bn, from £45.4bn at the end of 2019.Although operating profit for the half year fell by 10% to £808m due to Covid-19-related delays and other changes, performance during the second half of the year is expected to be better. BAE’s earnings are only expected to be down by about 5% this year, before returning to growth in 2021.One of the best dividend stocks in the FTSE 100?Shareholders won’t receive BAE’s delayed 2019 final dividend until September. But despite this delay, I’d argue that this payout will mean the group’s 27-year unbroken dividend record will be maintained.There aren’t many companies in the FTSE 100 with such a long track record. Given that BAE’s shares also offer an above-average 4.8% yield at current levels, I rate them as a buy for income.A possible 6% yieldAnother company that plans to make up for lost dividend is FTSE 100 insurer RSA Insurance Group (LSE: RSA). Like most of its rivals, RSA suspended its dividend earlier this year at the request of the UK financial regulator.However, in its half-year results on Thursday, RSA said that it intends to resume dividends “as soon as … prudent “and aimed “to catch up on missed dividend payments over time”.Is this affordable? RSA’s latest results suggest to me that it should be.The group’s underlying return on tangible equity was 16.7% during the first half, at the top of its 13% to 17% target range. Although pre-tax profit fell by 7% to £211m for the half year, the group’s underlying performance remained quite strong. So far, losses related to Covid-19 seem very manageable.It’s too soon to be sure how quickly RSA’s profits will recover. But broker forecasts for 2020 suggest a dividend payout of 27p per share. That would give a dividend yield of 6.2% at current levels.Shareholders might not receive this cash until next year, but with the shares down by 25% so far in 2020, I think this could be one of the best dividend stocks to buy today for a long-term passive income. Best UK dividend stocks? I’d buy and hold these for the next decade See all posts by Roland Headlast_img read more

First insights into the biodiversity and biogeography of the Southern Ocean deep sea

first_imgShallow marine benthic communities around Antarctica show high levels of endemism, gigantism, slow growth, longevity and late maturity, as well as adaptive radiations that have generated considerable biodiversity in some taxa. The deeper parts of the Southern Ocean exhibit some unique environmental features, including a very deep continental shelf and a weakly stratified water column, and are the source for much of the deep water in the world ocean. These features suggest that deep-sea faunas around the Antarctic may be related both to adjacent shelf communities and to those in other oceans. Unlike shallow-water Antarctic benthic communities, however, little is known about life in this vast deep-sea region. Here, we report new data from recent sampling expeditions in the deep Weddell Sea and adjacent areas (748–6,348 m water depth) that reveal high levels of new biodiversity; for example, 674 isopods species, of which 585 were new to science. Bathymetric and biogeographic trends varied between taxa. In groups such as the isopods and polychaetes, slope assemblages included species that have invaded from the shelf. In other taxa, the shelf and slope assemblages were more distinct. Abyssal faunas tended to have stronger links to other oceans, particularly the Atlantic, but mainly in taxa with good dispersal capabilities, such as the Foraminifera. The isopods, ostracods and nematodes, which are poor dispersers, include many species currently known only from the Southern Ocean. Our findings challenge suggestions that deep-sea diversity is depressed in the Southern Ocean and provide a basis for exploring the evolutionary significance of the varied biogeographic patterns observed in this remote environment.last_img read more
