ITV to restart dividend after 2-year hiatus

first_img Share ITV to restart dividend after 2-year hiatus whatsapp ITV will unveil plans to restart its dividend this week, thanks to a revival in the advertising market. Adam Crozier, the broadcaster’s chief executive, will on Wednesday say he expects to restart the payout, ending a two-year hiatus for the firm’s shareholders.Analysts expect the firm to have almost tripled its pre-tax profits to £300m, after advertising rebounded strongly in 2010 thanks to the World Cup.However, Crozier will caution against too much optimism at this stage, pointing out that advertising sales are still only back to the levels seen in 2006.And he will warn that the group is likely to come up against much tougher comparatives from the second quarter onwards, when last year’s World Cup boosted revenues. However, the Royal Wedding in April is likely to lead to a smaller fillip. Crozier will also underline the need for massive structural change at the broadcaster, which is still heavily dependent on advertising revenues from free-to-air channel ITV1. A source close to the firm said: “A return in cyclical advertising doesn’t undermine the need for structural change. If anything, it underlines it.”Lorna Tilbian, media analyst at Numis, says she expects the firm to expand into Pay TV in a bid to wean itself off ITV1’s advertising sales. She also forecasts the group will be debt free by the end of 2011.

You’ll need to bear that in mind, and how the dividend is split between instalments, to determine what you’ll get per purchase.Which to choose?The number of shares you get should really not be a big determining factor in your investment decisions. But it is interesting to see which stocks will get you the most. Naturally, it’s ones with a combination of high yield and low share price. As it happens, these 10 have all been hammered in the stock market crash. Five of them are out-of-favour financials, three banks.Is the forecast number of scrip dividend shares a useful indicator of underpriced stocks? Or does it show up dead dogs still on their way down? I’ll leave that one as an exercise for the reader. 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 A Motley Fool reader has asked us about reinvesting dividends. If you invest large sums and receive substantial dividend payments, it’s straightforward to buy shares with it. But it’s not cost-effective to pay brokers’ fees for buying small amounts. One way to overcome that is to opt for scrip dividends. Rather than paying you cash, the company issues you new shares instead.But what if your dividend payments amount to just a few pounds? If you invest £1,000 in Unilever, say, the forecast 3.2% dividend yield suggests you’ll earn £32 this year. With Unilever shares currently changing hands for a shade under £48, you can’t even buy a single share with that.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…Cash or sharesIt’s common for a company to pay you in cash if there isn’t enough for one share. Or if you’d get a fractional number of shares, they’ll round it down and pay you the extra as cash. But some companies are especially helpful and will do better than that. I have, for example, a scrip dividend note here from HSBC belonging to a friend of mine. They hold surplus cash and carry it over to the next quarter. So, for example, this time he had money brought forward from last time, which meant there was enough for some new shares. The remainder is carried forward to next time.How can you work out what you might get? It depends on the dividend cash and the share price. If you have, say, £1,000 in a stock and it pays a 5% dividend, you’ll receive £50. And if the share price is just a few pounds or less, you’ll then be able to reinvest almost all the cash in scrip dividends.FTSE 100 dividendsI’ve calculated it for the whole of the FTSE 100, using a snapshot of share prices from last week and using forecast dividend yields from various sources. I used forecasts for as far out as I could, so either 2021 or 2022 based on year-end. The idea is to try to look past the Covid-19 cuts to a lot of dividends this year. In terms of number of shares you’ll get, on £1,000 invested, these are the top 10 (with the number of scrip shares rounded down): Legal & General199p9.6%£9648 Vodafone111p8.0%£8072 Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! I think opening a Stocks and Shares ISA is one of the best ways to start saving for the future. Even with an initial investment of just £1,000, I believe it’s possible to build a large financial nest egg, which may even lead to early retirement.Stocks and Shares ISAStocks and Shares ISAs are operated just like traditional dealing accounts. Most online stock brokers now offer this service for no extra charge. However, there are a few key differences between these products and traditional dealing accounts.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…For a start, the maximum annual contribution limit for an ISA is just £20,000, although this isn’t much of a restriction. My calculations show that this allowance is more than enough to build a sizeable financial nest egg over an extended period. The second key difference between traditional accounts and Stocks and Shares ISAs is the fact the latter comes with significant tax advantages. Any income or capital gains earned on investments held within one of these wrappers doesn’t attract any further tax.This advantage could yield enormous benefits for investors in the long run, especially for higher-rate taxpayers. Investing for the futureThere are limits on the investments held inside a Stocks and Shares ISA. However, these are pretty broad. For example, the rules say investors can only have assets traded on a recognised stock exchange. This essentially means any developed stock exchange, which includes markets in North America and Europe. But while it’s possible to own a range of different investments in a Stocks and Shares ISA, that doesn’t mean it’s essential. I believe the best way to build wealth in the long term when starting with a relatively small sum such as £1,000 is to use an index tracker fund. The great thing about index tracker funds is that they manage themselves. All an investor needs to do is click ‘buy’ and relax.What’s more, as these funds only track the performance of a stock index, there’s no need for an investor  to worry about the performance of a particular investment manager. They will be spread across as many as 600 investments with minimal costs, thanks to the economies of scale offered by these large products. The tracker funds currently in my Stocks and Shares ISA portfolio follow the FTSE All-Share Index and S&P 500 in the United States. Another optionWhile investing in funds is my preferred option, I also hold individual stocks in my Stocks and Shares ISA. Some individual stocks can produce higher returns for investors than the broader index in the long term. This may mean they’re better options for those looking to retire early.On this front, my favourite company is insurance group Admiral. The stock has yielded an annual return for investors of around 15% during the past decade. At this rate, investors could double their money every four-and-a-half years.

Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Montgomery, Alabama] The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council gathered here Oct. 18 for a four-day fall meeting with racial reconciliation as a central theme, amplified by this city known for its prominent place in the histories of both the Civil War and the civil rights movement of the 1950s and 1960s.The business sessions have been scheduled around a full-day pilgrimage on Oct. 19 that will include visits to the Legacy Museum and the National Memorial for Peace and Justice, as well as a meeting with Bryan Stevenson, the death row attorney whose Equal Justice Initiative founded the two institutions in 2018 to tell the story of racial injustice and violence in the United States, from slavery to mass incarceration.“It is the history of America, and this is important for us to remember,” Presiding Bishop Michael Curry said in his opening remarks Oct. 18 in a meeting room at the Embassy Suites Montgomery Hotel and Conference Center. “It’s not just a Southern story, and it’s not just a regional story.”Diane Pollard gives the homily during Morning Prayer on Oct. 18 at Executive Council in Montgomery, Alabama. Photo: David Paulsen/Episcopal News ServiceThe day opened with Morning Prayer and a homily by Diane Pollard, a lay member of Executive Council from the Diocese of New York. Pollard described Montgomery as “a city that is as simple and yet as complex as the shaping of the American dream. If the streets and buildings could only speak to us, what would they say?”Montgomery is Alabama’s capital and a city of about 200,000 people. It was the first capital of the Confederate States of America in 1861, and Confederate President Jefferson Davis worshipped at St. John’s Episcopal Church here until the Confederate capital was moved to Richmond, Virginia.Montgomery also is the city where Rosa Parks was arrested on Dec. 1, 1955, for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white passenger. In 1961, the Freedom Riders were attacked by white mob at the Montgomery bus terminal. In 1965, Martin Luther King Jr., after leading the voting rights march from Selma, delivered his “How Long, Not Long” speech on the steps of the state capitol before 25,000 people. King got his start as pastor a decade earlier at the nearby Dexter Avenue Baptist Church.Touring the city’s historic sites will offer Executive Council members a lesson in the country’s terrible history of injustice, Pollard said. “These places will also provide us with a painful opportunity to ask ourselves why and how these events could happen,” she said, and they will reveal parallels to present-day injustices. “These issues haunt our existence as the land of the free.”Executive Council carries out the programs and policies adopted by the General Convention, according to Canon I.4 (1), and it typically meets three times a year. During this triennium, it has set a goal of meeting once in each of The Episcopal Church’s nine provinces.Twenty members of Executive Council – four bishops, four priests or deacons, and 12 laypeople – are elected by General Convention to six-year terms, with half of those members elected every three years. In addition, each of The Episcopal Church’s nine provinces elects an ordained member and a lay member for six years, and those elections also alternate every three years.Curry, as presiding bishop, serves as president of Executive Council. Vice president is the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, in her position as president of the House of Deputies. Jennings said in her opening remarks that she was eager to meet with and learn from Stevenson during an afternoon gathering Oct. 19 at Church of the Good Shepherd.“The deep injustices in our justice system are no recent invention,” Jennings said. “Stevenson’s work and witness teach us about the inextricable connection between the enslavement of Africans, the reign of terror known as Jim Crow and the modern-day systemic racism that leads to our country incarcerating more of its citizens than any other nation in the world.”Jennings also highlighted the work of St. John’s to unravel a racist myth within its own walls. The congregation had long maintained a plaque on a pew that identified it as the place where Jefferson Davis once sat for worship, but research into the pew’s history found that the connection to Davis was tenuous and its 1925 dedication steeped in racism. The congregation announced in February it had removed the plaque and pew.“The history that most of us learned in school is riddled with stories – you might call them myths – that render invisible the way that race, or what we think of as race, has created and sustained our economy and our social structures, including our churches,” Jennings said.Curry, in his opening remarks, read a passage from Maya Angelou’s poem “On the Pulse of the Morning.”“‘History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived but, if faced with courage, need not be lived again.’ That’s the spirit of being in Montgomery,” Curry said.The presiding bishop continued by highlighting the positive responses he and his staff have received to the Way of Love, which offers resources centered around seven steps to help Episcopalians bringing Jesus to the center of their daily lives. Curry suggested it shouldn’t be surprising that congregations are adopting the Way of Love, “because I think it reflects who we really are.”Curry also briefly eulogized Maryland Rep. Elijah Cummings, who died this week. Though Cummings was not an Episcopalian, Curry held him up as an example of “just a good human being, who really did try to live out the social teachings of Jesus of Nazareth.” Just as Cummings strived to work with lawmakers who disagreed with him, Curry said The Episcopal Church can be a force for seeking the good in each other, “not to change anybody’s vote but to change how we relate to each other as human beings.”And Curry, whose sermons frequently quote Martin Luther King Jr., described plans for staging one of The Episcopal Church’s ongoing series of revivals at a major venue in New York. Details of that event are still being worked out, but Curry said the church is embracing greater evangelism because it shares King’s vision that we must “learn to live together as brothers and sisters or perish as fools.”Executive Council’s work is divided among four committees, which will review and finalize resolutions for votes of the full council on Oct. 21. A large portion of those resolutions will come from the Finance Committee, which has begun the process of drafting a budget for the 2022-24 triennium.The Rev. Mally Lloyd of the Diocese of Massachusetts, the Finance Committee chair, provided an overview of the committee’s agenda, starting with a series of resolutions on gun safety and Israel-Palestine that were submitted by the Committee on Corporate Social Responsibility. Other resolutions will address travel reimbursement for volunteers, fundraising priorities, diocesan assessments and the creation of new meeting rooms at the Episcopal Church Center in New York.The Rev. Michael Barlowe, the General Convention secretary, announced future meeting locations for Executive Council through General Convention 2021. The next meeting will be Feb. 12-15 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and the other meetings will be held in Puerto Rico; Baltimore, Maryland; Providence, Rhode Island; and Cleveland, Ohio.The Executive Council also is voting to for a replacement for a member who resigned earlier this year. Four nominees were chosen out of 58 applications received for the position, Barlowe said. The council is in the process of voting on those four nominees.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Bellad House / Khosla Associates

first_imgPhotographs:  Bharath RamamruthamText description provided by the architects. The house, conceived for Hubli businessman ArvindBellad and his family is set amongst a one acre wooded property in north Karnataka. The first visual of the site was that of towering old Gulmohar trees with peacocks strutting around and we planned a house that would weave itself around this natural environment.Save this picture!planThe Bellad’s wanted a home with few programmatical requirements but with the ease of large rambling open spaces and the privacy of a central courtyard. There was also a requirement to adhere to the principles of Vastu, the ancient Indian science of energy flow and placement.Save this picture!© Bharath RamamruthamThe concept of a single level home seemed appropriate given that the site afforded us the luxury of space. So did the use of vernacular sloping tiled roofs ; a low structure with an expanse of terracotta clay tiles on the roofs would be in harmony with the natural surroundings. Our design centers around an unusually large 3000 sq. ft. open core, and proposes a dialogue between the built up areas and open space. The central open-to-sky courtyard has rooms and a generous wrap around tiled verandah flanking all three sides. The 12 ft deep verandah creates a gentle buffer between the indoor and outdoor environments. The verandah is treated as a fluid container that contours itself around the functions of the home creating permeable zones for reading, dining and contemplation. It traverses with ease between the public and private zones.Save this picture!© Bharath RamamruthamThe entrance driveway lazily winds from the northeast corner of the site and culminates at a freestanding tiled roof entrance portico. The portico faces an imposing red laterite wall alternating with horizontal ribs of local sadharhalli stone. Hidden from the entry points, stretching behind a laterite stone wall is the vast courtyard which was intended as an ode to the elements of life – verdant greenery, flowering plants, and water lily pools flank its periphery and provide an antidote to the otherwise dusty and hot city environment.Save this picture!© Bharath RamamruthamThe requirements of five bedrooms, a family room, a formal living and dining were easy to accommodate and revolved around the needs of this family of four. But the brief got interesting when it asked for a separation of public spaces that our clients’ father could use on his visits to meet with political associates in the city. Hence, the fourth leg of the verandah that sweeps along the north face gives access to two separate entrances. The more private one is at the west and the more public one is to the east.Save this picture!© Bharath RamamruthamWe consulted with TERI (The Energy and Resources Institute) to better understand how to enhance the insulation and ventilation of a building in a region that happens to have hot summers and a humid monsoon and used details to lower temperatures indoors by 4-5 degrees.Save this picture!© Bharath RamamruthamVents in bedrooms and closets let hot air escape through the roof and thick walls to the south and west keep the heat out. Pitched, doubly tiled roofs over the verandah are supported by angled wall braces that allow the rain to run off into harvesting pits. Dormer windows face north and bring soft daylight into the bedrooms that have high-sloped ceilings. Constructed in R.C.C. all the roof slabs are kept insulated by a layer of polystyrene and an expanse of clay tiles.The material palette comprises of local natural stone, wood and terracotta and is broken occasionally by the Neel blue walls within the central court.Save this picture!© Bharath RamamruthamThe landscape design on this 11,000 sft.home was crucial to establish a seamless connection between the built and natural environments. Balinese landscape designer DewaKusuma created the tropical landscaping in and around the house which is supportive of our architectural style. The dining pavilion is one such place where the boundaries between inside and outside space get blurred. It opens out to a landscape garden on its outer face and a secondary intimate court on its inner face.Save this picture!© Bharath RamamruthamThe south and west wings of the house comprise of the bedrooms that lead to bathrooms overlooking their respective landscaped courts. A water lily and fishpond with stepping-stones fits right between the two children’s rooms, and they can sit at their bay window seats and gaze at the fish, endlessly.Save this picture!© Bharath RamamruthamProject gallerySee allShow less”American City: St. Louis Architecture: Three Centuries of Classic Design” ExhibitionArticlesMuseum Nasional Indonesia / AbodayArticles Share Projects Save this picture!© Bharath Ramamrutham+ 10 Share India Bellad House / Khosla Associates Bellad House / Khosla AssociatesSave this projectSaveBellad House / Khosla Associates CopyAbout this officeKhosla AssociatesOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesHubliIndiaPublished on March 20, 2012Cite: “Bellad House / Khosla Associates” 20 Mar 2012.

New IDEM Rules Lack Clarity

first_img Previous articleSeed Consultants Market Watch 1:26 update with Gary Wilhelmi 12/17/2012Next articleFight for Farm Bill Still Bipartisan, But Geographical Divide Remains Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt – Dec 17, 2012 [audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/12/IDEMwrap.mp3|titles=New IDEM Rules Lack Clarity] Adding to the confusion is the fact that IDEM has not clarified many of the details and, in some cases, not revised the paperwork needed to comply.  According to Trenary, this is making it hard for livestock producers to know what they can and cannot do.  One issue that needs immediate attention is clarification on spreading manure on frozen ground, “There are some things we need clarification on, and we are hoping to see that very soon because this will impact a lot of producers.” Josh TremaryNew regulations from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management went into effect this year; but, 6 months later, there are still many unanswered questions. The new regulations dealt with manure management, storage, and transpiration.  The Indiana livestock industry helped write some of the new rules and generally approve of them, but Josh Tremary with Indiana Pork says there is still a lot of confusion, “In some cases these are not requirements, while in other cases they are old requirements that now apply to new groups of producers.” He told HAT that anybody looking to do something new in their operation had better look into the new regulations and have some of the new procedures explained to them. Trenary hopes that agency officials will work with producers to clarify some of these gray areas quickly, and he hopes that the transition to a new administration at IDEM will not slow down the process, “No matter who heads the agency, a lot of the staff that we have been working with will remain and we hope we can still continue to make some headway.” If you have questions, your best bet is to contact the agricultural liaison at IDEM, your livestock organization, or the livestock specialist at  Indiana Farm Bureau.
