Big yields can indicate the market has doubts about the sustainability of the payout. The three FTSE 100 shares I’m looking at today have yields of up to 8%. They’re on my ‘buy’ list, because I think the fact their earnings come from relatively predictable industries helps underpin their big dividends.High dividend stock #1National Grid (LSE: NG) has a unique position at the heart of the UK’s energy system. It owns the high-voltage electricity transmission network in England and Wales. It also owns and operates the high-pressure gas transmission system in Great Britain. In addition, it’s one of the biggest investor-owned energy companies in the US. It serves more than 20m customers throughout New York, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.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…The company’s current dividend policy aims to “increase dividend per share by at least RPI for the foreseeable future”. Such an increase implies a dividend close to 50p for its financial year ending 31 March. This represents a yield of 5.7% at its current share price of 876p.As a regulated business, National Grid operates under a regime that aims to strike a happy medium between a fair price for consumers and a fair balance of risk and return for shareholders. Nevertheless, there’s always the risk regulators could impose price controls that lead to less generous dividends than are currently being paid.High dividend stock #2GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) is a global business. As such, it has good geographical diversification. It’s also diversified across pharmaceutical, vaccine and consumer healthcare products. Nevertheless, it’s still exposed to a risk specific to drug companies. Namely, potential harm to patients. GSK has been obliged to settle a number of personal injury lawsuits in its history. However, due to its size and financial strength, these haven’t derailed the business or shareholders’ dividends.In its third-quarter results, issued in October, the company said it “currently intends to maintain the dividend for 2020 at the current level of 80p per share, subject to any material change in the external environment or performance expectations.”The company also said it intends to increase free cash flow cover of the dividend before returning it to growth. City analysts expect growth to resume in 2023. Meanwhile, the 80p payout gives a yield of 5.8% at the current share price of 1,380p.A FTSE 100 share with an 8% yieldIn the world of high dividend stocks, only a few offer yields of 8%+. British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) is one. Like GlaxoSmithKline, it’s a global giant. With addictive products, its earnings are relatively reliable, whatever’s happening in the economy.World consumption of traditional tobacco products is in a slow structural decline. This is due to increasing regulation and education. However, while volumes are shrinking, the company’s revenues are expanding. This is because growth of its new-category products — heated tobacco, vapour and modern oral — is more than offsetting the decline in its traditional combustible products.Based on City earnings forecasts, and the company’s 65% dividend payout ratio, I think we can expect a dividend of around 210p when the company releases its 2020 results on 17 February. This gives a yield of 7.7% at a current share price of 2,739p. This rises to 8% for 2021 on forecasts of a dividend increase to around 220p a share.

You learn an awful lot about life in a very short time.RW: And the worst room-mate?DD: Tim Visser is a nightmare. He watches some very strange TV, loves a long bath, and let’s just say he’s not shy.RW: Have you got any nicknames?DD: I’ve picked up a few nicknames while I’ve been at Edinburgh. A few of the guys started calling me Chewy, in honour of Chewbacca from Star Wars, after they heard me making a Wookiee-like noise. I also get called the Octopus because when I run I tend to be very loose, with limbs flying everywhere. There are plenty more but I’ll leave it at that I think!RW: Who’d play you in a film of your life?DD: Will Smith?RW: Who are the jokers in the Edinburgh squad?DD: James King and Netani Talei love a practical joke. One of the better ones was when the Scotland squad was on the summer tour and, after a 30-hour journey home, Tim Visser returned to find his car covered bumper to bumper in cling film.RW: Do you have any phobias?DD: I don’t have any big phobias but I steer clear of any large spiders, snakes or dodgy airlines as much as the next guy.RW: Who would you like to be stuck in a lift with?DD: A comedian, someone like Michael McIntyre or Jimmy Carr. On second thoughts, Miranda Kerr and her friends at Victoria’s Secret would be better. I’m sure they’re mildly comical… RW: If you could have one superpower, what would it be and why?DD: I’d like to be able to teleport so I can take away all the time I waste through travel and walking to the bathroom at 4am.RW: You must spend a lot of time up and about in the middle of the night! Do you have any superstitions?DD: I’ve never had any, but at the start of the season I noticed that, more often than not, I had my socks on the wrong foot – each pair has an ‘L’ or an ‘R’ on them. So I’ve recently started making sure they were the right way round, though it has yet to start paying dividends! RW: Who would be your three dream dinner-party guests?DD: Without a doubt my first choice is Jamie Oliver and needless to say he’d be cooking. Second would probably be Gerard Butler and lastly Jennifer Aniston.RW: What’s your guilty pleasure?DD: I watch a lot of reality TV, things like Jersey Shore, Geordie Shore and so on. RW: What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on the pitch?DD: I get a lot of stick from the boys about when I was playing for the Scotland Sevens side in George. From one of the kick-offs during the game against Wales, I managed to completely miss the ball and it bounced off my head 20 metres forward. Somehow – thankfully – the video hasn’t got around.RW: How would you like to be remembered?DD: As a player who is hard and aggressive and works as hard as he possibly can.———————————————————————————————————————————————– LONDON, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 02: David Denton of Scotland is tackled by Mike Brown of England during the RBS Six Nations match between England and Scotland at Twickenham Stadium on February 2, 2013 in London, England.

The Anatomy of Fear Focus on FloridaTeacher shortfall eclipses 5,000 in FloridaBy Erin Clark of Watchdog.org Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 As Florida legislators consider ways to get more high-achieving charter schools into the state, school districts have another concern: getting more teachers into the state.The national teacher shortage is hitting Florida hard. Hillsborough County alone could use another 500 teachers. Advocacy group Teachers of Tomorrow identifies Florida as one of the top five states struggling to find educators, with a 5,708 teacher shortfall.The Florida Department of Education’s 2016-17 report on what subjects are in greatest need of more instructors identified critical shortage areas in general sciences, physical science, education, mathematics, English for speakers of other languages, reading, and exceptional student education.In these subjects, there are significant teacher vacancies and a dearth of education program graduates entering the field. A substantial proportion of teachers filling these positions are certified in other subjects.In Liberty County, nearly one-third of all core classes were taught by teachers working outside of their field of expertise in the 2014-15 school year. Statewide, the average is closer to 6 percent.Duval County, which is looking to fill 100 teaching spots, currently has 20 percent of core classes being taught by teachers working out of field.Palm Beach Superintendent Robert Avossa said that nearby Florida Atlantic University sent 40 new teachers to the district last year.“I need 1,500,” he said.Jacqueline Twiggs, the lead state strategist for ACT Inc., told legislators at a recent Education Committee hearing in the Florida House of Representatives that the state’s teaching pipeline is shrinking faster than in other places around the country.“Education is continuing to be an area students are not interested in going into,” she said.When students take the ACT in high school, they are asked to identify their career fields of interest. Nationwide, only 5 percent of test takers are interested in education, which Twiggs said is part of a downward trend. Florida is tied for last place nationally, with only 3 percent expressing interest in education.Twiggs added that those Florida students who do express interest in education are underperforming on the test compared with Florida students interested in other fields, as well as compared with education-minded students nationwide. Only a quarter of Florida students interested in an education career are meeting the ACT math benchmark. For science, it’s slightly lower, at 22 percent.

Follow the news on Morocco / Western Sahara November 28, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders draws US attention to jailed journalists to go further Morocco / Western SaharaMiddle East – North Africa NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Reporters Without Borders called today on US secretary of state Colin Powell to persuade Morocco’s King Mohammed VI to free two imprisoned journalists (and three others threatened with jail) when he meets him during an official visit to the North African country on 2 December. Reporters Without Borders called today on US secretary of state Colin Powell to persuade Morocco’s King Mohammed VI to free two imprisoned journalists (and three others threatened with jail) when he meets him during an official visit to the North African country on 2 December.”The United States regularly stresses its attachment to press freedom, so we ask you to make full respect for it a priority in your talks with the king and to make US economic aid conditional on it,” said the press freedom organisation’s secretary-general, Robert Ménard.Two journalists are currently in prison – Ali Lmrabet (since 21 May) and Mohammed el-Hourd (since 13 June). Three others – Moustapha Kechnini, Abdelaziz Jallouli and Miloud Trigui – have been given prison sentences (of between 18 months and two years) but are still free pending appeals.President George Bush called on 7 November for the democratisation of governments in the Middle East and said Morocco had made significant progress in this. But press freedom is the key to democracy and Morocco, a strong US regional ally, gets much-needed economic aid from the US, which said on 28 October it would double its non-military aid to the country next year from the present $40 million or so.

Pic: Sean Curtin Photo.A COUNTY Limerick farmer is among those helping to improve the lives of 70 poverty-stricken families in Romania thanks to his donation of an in-calf heifer.Well-known Cappamore farmer Shane Blackwell was one of a group of farmers who delivered Holstein Friesian heifers to Roscrea Mart this week, before the cattle were airlifted from Shannon Airport by the charity Bóthar.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In all, 70 in-calf heifers were airlifted in the early hours of Sunday morning to Romania from Shannon, a consignment with an estimated value of over €100,000.Mr Blackwell said: “Donating a heifer to Bóthar doesn’t really affect us financially a huge amount but it gives tremendous benefit to someone else. There’s a great tradition in the farming community in Ireland of helping out your neighbour but in this instance, the neighbour we are helping is just that bit further away.”The farmers were met at Roscrea Mart by Bóthar CEO Deirdre M Ryan and Pierre Ferrari, CEO of US charity Heifer International, which counts Bill Clinton, Ellen de Generes and Meryl Streep among its supporters.Heifer International, which has been partnering with Bóthar since the Irish charity was founded 23 years ago, funded the cost of airlifting the animals.Mr Ferrari paid tribute to Irish farmers and the Irish people for their “incredible sense of giving” during the economic downturn.“In the middle of what I hope will be the worst times that this generation of Irish people today will know, you have remained one of the top nations in the world in terms of giving. Last year’s World Giving index placed Ireland first in Europe and fifth in the world.”Mr Ferrari said that the quality of the milk produced by the Irish Friesian Holstein heifers is “so fantastic that it’s a gift beyond the recipient family’s dreams”.Ms Ryan said: “This will change the lives of these Romanian families. It will lift these people from poverty and the best way I can describe it is that it would be the equivalent to us being handed over the keys to a successful business.” Advertisement Email Print
