The BATS share price gives an 8% dividend yield. I’d buy now

first_img Roland Head | Tuesday, 8th June, 2021 | More on: BATS We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) share price edged higher this morning after the company said revenue growth this year is likely to be stronger than expected.BATS share price has fallen by 10% over the last year as the tobacco sector has fallen out of fashion. This has left British American shares with a dividend yield of 7.8%. That makes it one of the highest yielders in the FTSE 100. I reckon the payout looks pretty safe too.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…More people are smokingAlthough smoking rates are falling in most developed markets, the total number of smokers globally has been rising. This is due to population growth. A new study published in medical journal The Lancet has found that the number of smokers globally reached 1,140m in 2019, 150m more than in 1990.About two-thirds of these smokers are located in 10 countries, including China, Indonesia, India, and the US. BATS has exposure to all of the world’s top smoking markets, except China, where tobacco sales are state controlled.In today’s half-year update, the company said that, so far this year, it’s seeing “continued recovery in Emerging Markets” and “a robust US performance.” The company also said its share of the global cigarette market has risen by 0.1% so far this year.BATS’ revenue is now expected to rise by at least 5% in 2021, compared to previous forecasts of 3-5%.BATS share price: I think it’s cheapTobacco is a mature business, but I don’t see any signs that the big players are winding down. BATS’ profits have continued to rise slowly and its sales are stable. Cash generation is also strong — a key requirement for reliable dividends.In 2020, the group generated £7,295m of free cash flow. That’s cash which is surplus to requirements and can be returned to shareholders. This was enough to cover the dividend 1.5 times, giving a comfortable margin of safety.Despite this, BATS current share price values the stock at just nine times free cash flow. In my view that’s cheap, given the group’s track record of cash generation.Will the shares rise?If I’m right and the dividend’s safe, then perhaps BATS’ share price should rise? Even if the shares rose by 25% to 3,600p, this stock would still offer a 6% dividend yield.I can see the case for a higher share price, but I’m not sure how likely it is. There are two reasons why I’m cautious.Firstly, much of the company’s earnings growth comes from cost-cutting, share buybacks and price increases. The number of cigarettes being sold globally is falling — British American expects market volumes to decline by 3% this year.A second risk is that the company still has quite a lot of debt. Although net debt’s falling, this is happening quite slowly. The company still expect a leverage multiple of 3.0x EBITDA at the end of this year — above my normal comfort level.On balance, I think the BATS share price could climb another 10-20%, but probably not much more. I view this as a pure income stock. And with a well-supported forecast yield of 7.8%, it’s a share I’d be happy to buy. The BATS share price gives an 8% dividend yield.

River Infrastructure a Major Concern for Corn Farmers

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News River Infrastructure a Major Concern for Corn Farmers By Hoosier Ag Today – Oct 26, 2016 River Infrastructure a Major Concern for Corn Farmers SHARE Previous articleJudge Considering Merits of Beef Checkoff LawsuitNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for October 27, 2016 Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter The National Corn Growers Association says eroding river infrastructure is a major concern for corn farmers. An NCGA spokesperson says “upgrading the navigational efficiency of these waterways is a priority for corn farmers,” more so as most prospective customers of U.S. corn are now overseas. The comments come as new research by the Mid-America Freight Coalition finds the failure of the nation’s aging river locks and dams along the Mississippi River would cost billions of dollars in lost jobs and reduced economic activity. USDA research shows a disruption at Lock & Dam 25 on the Upper Mississippi River, a key location on the river system, would significantly hamper economic activity. The report concludes a Lock 25 closure could result in a loss of more than 7,000 jobs, $1.3 billion of labor income, and about $2.4 billion of economic activity annually.A total of 36 locks and dams, 28 on the Upper Mississippi River, are maintained at a nine-foot depth navigation channel for barge transportation.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter SHARElast_img read more

New Dairy Margin Coverage Signup Begins June 17

first_img$8.500.105N/A Facebook Twitter $4.00Nonenone Home Indiana Agriculture News New Dairy Margin Coverage Signup Begins June 17 By USDA Communications – Jun 13, 2019 SHARE U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue today announces that signup begins June 17 for the new Dairy Margin Coverage (DMC) program, the cornerstone program of the dairy safety net that helps dairy producers manage the volatility of milk and feed prices, operated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency (FSA).The 2018 Farm Bill allowed USDA to construct the new DMC, which replaces the Margin Protection Program for Dairy (MPP-Dairy). This new program offers protection to dairy producers when the difference between the all-milk price and the average feed cost (the margin) falls below a certain dollar amount selected by the producer.“In February I committed to opening signup of the new Dairy Margin Coverage program by June 17, I am proud to say that our FSA staff worked hard to meet that challenge as one of the Department’s top Farm Bill implementation priorities since President Trump signed it last December.” said Secretary Perdue. “With an environment of low milk prices, high economic stress, and a new safety net program with higher coverage levels and lower premiums, it is the right time for dairy producers to seriously consider enrolling when signup opens. For many smaller dairies, the choice is probably a no-brainer as the retroactive coverage through January has already assured them that the 2019 payments will exceed the required premiums.”The program provides coverage retroactive to January 1, 2019, with applicable payments following soon after enrollment. At the time of signup, dairy producers can choose between the $4.00 to $9.50 coverage levels. Facebook Twitter SHARE $5.000.0050.005 The Farm Bill also allows producers who participated in MPP-Dairy from 2014-2017 to receive a repayment or credit for part of the premiums paid into the program. FSA has been providing premium reimbursements to producers since last month and those that elect the 75 percent credit option will now have that credit applied toward 2019 DMC premiums.The Department has built in a 50 percent blend of premium and supreme alfalfa hay prices with the alfalfa hay price used under the prior dairy program to provide a total feed cost that more closely aligns with hay rations used by many producers. At a milk margin minus feed cost of $9.50 or less, payments are possible. With the 50 percent hay blend, FSA’s revised April 2019 income over feed cost margin is $8.82 per hundredweight (cwt). The revised margins for January, February and March are, respectively, $7.71, $7.91 and $8.66 – triggering DMC payments for each month.DMC payments will be reduced by 6.2 percent in 2019 because of a sequester order required by Congress and issued in accordance with the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985.DMC offers catastrophic coverage at no cost to the producer, other than an annual $100 administrative fee. Producers can opt for greater coverage levels for a premium in addition to the administrative fee. Operations owned by limited resource, beginning, socially disadvantaged or veteran farmers and ranchers may be eligible for a waiver on administrative fees. Producers have the choice to lock in coverage levels until 2023 and receive a 25-percent discount on their DMC premiums.To assist producers in making coverage elections, USDA partnered with the University of Wisconsin to develop a DMC decision support tool, which can be used to evaluate various scenarios using different coverage levels through DMC.More InformationAll dairy operations in the United States are eligible for the DMC program. An operation can be run either by a single producer or multiple producers who commercially produce and market cows’ milk.Eligible dairy operations must have a production history determined by FSA. For most operations, production history is based on the highest milk production in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Newer dairy operations have other options for determining production history. Producers may contact their local FSA office to get their verified production history.Dairy producers also are reminded that 2018 Farm Bill provisions allow for dairy operation to participate in both FSA’s DMC program and the Risk Management Agency’s Livestock Gross Margin (LGM-Dairy) program. There are also no restrictions from participating in DMC in conjunction with any other RMA insurance products.On December 20, 2018, President Trump signed into law the 2018 Farm Bill, which provides support, certainty and stability to our nation’s farmers, ranchers and land stewards by enhancing farm support programs, improving crop insurance, maintaining disaster programs and promoting and supporting voluntary conservation. FSA is committed to implementing these changes as quickly and effectively as possible, and today’s updates are part of meeting that goal.For more information, visit farmers.gov DMC webpage or contact your local USDA service center.

What’s Behind Racial Disparities in Homeownership?

first_img The homeownership gap between black and white homeowners has widened to its largest level in over 50 years, according to the Urban Institute. In a new research report from Urban’s Housing Finance Policy Center, Researchers Jung Hyun Choi, Alanna McCargo, Michael Neal, Laurie Goodman, Caitlin Young, analyze what has caused these disparities.According to the research, just 17% of the homeownership gap remains unexplained by observed variables and could be caused by differences in parental wealth, information networks or the vestiges of policies and structures that have made it difficult for black households to obtain and benefit from homeownership.At the national level, median household income for black households is substantially lower than for white households ($38,183 versus $61,363 in 2017).Urban also notes that Marital status has a strong association with homeownership rates. Income is one of the largest disparities in homeownership. The gap is large among low-income households but is less than 10% percentage points for households earning more than $150,000. The gap jumps to 27% for households earning less than $25,000 and 28% for households earning between $25,000 and $50,000. Low-income white households are more likely to be homeowners, and white households at the lowest income levels still have a higher overall homeownership rate than black households, at over 50%.Another key disparity is credit scores. According to the study, 50% of white households have a FICO credit score above 700, compared with only 20.6% of black households. Renting is one factor driving this difference.“The data show that black people are disproportionately more likely to have thin credit histories and no credit scores,” Urban states. “This is a key point because in the housing context, we know that most black households are renters and that rental payments are largely unreported to traditional credit bureaus.”Marital status is an important barometer for homeownership. Compared with white households, black households are less likely to get married. If black households were married at the same rate as white households, the black homeownership rate would increase 9 percentage points.Find the complete Urban Institute report here.

A Single Bench of Justice Arun Monga has issued notice to the State of Punjab and has asked the Additional Advocate General to seek instructions in the matter. The Court was hearing a plea against denial of default bail to a Petitioner on ground of extension of the investigation. The Petitioner’s counsel, Advocate Saurav Bhatia had submitted that the since the Petitioner had been implicated under the provisions of Unlawful Activities Prevention Act, 1967 and thus, the CJM was not competent to extend the period of investigation. It was contended that only Sessions Court is competent to grant any such extension. Further, he contended that even notice of the application seeking extension of investigation was not issued to the Petitioner, which is in violation of the Supreme Court’s verdict in Hitendra Vishnu Thakur v. State of Maharashtra, 1994 (4) SCC 602.Also Read: [UAPA] Accused Has Right To Oppose Police Plea For Extension Of Time For Completion Of Investigation Beyond 90 Days But Cannot Be Provided Copy Of The Application: Delhi HC It was also pointed out that extension of period of investigation had resulted in denial of default bail to the petitioner under Section 167(2) CrPC. In view of these preliminary submissions, the Bench issued notice to the Government, which was accepted by AAG PS Walia. The matter is now listed for hearing on November 23.Related NewsRecently, the Supreme Court held that all offences under the UAPA, whether investigated by the National Investigation Agency or by the investigating agencies of the State Government, are to be tried exclusively by Special Courts set up under the NIA Act.The three judge bench headed by Justice Rohinton Fali Nariman had also observed that the Special Court alone has jurisdiction to extend time to 180 days under the first proviso in Section 43-D(2)(b) of the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.All UAPA Offences Investigated By NIA Or State Police Are Exclusively Triable By ‘Special Courts’: SCIn the absence of any designated Court by notification issued by either the Central Government or the State Government, the fall back is upon the Court of Sessions alone, the Bench added.
