While some are happy simply to invest in a growth story, many shareholders want to know that they will regularly receive a dividend. Any dividend is welcome to me, but I particularly like what I call dividend raisers – companies that increase their payouts to shareholders.However, just seeing a headline about a share raising its dividends doesn’t make it attractive to me without more information. It is helpful to understand the context of any dividend raise. Has the company made more money, which enables it to raise the dividend securely? Is the dividend likely to remain stable or increase again in future, or could a raise today be setting it up for a cut later?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…Below are a couple of dividend raisers I am avoiding for now.A small raise doesn’t make up for a big cutLooking at oil giant Shell recently, the dividend headlines have been upbeat. Its third-quarter profits beat expectations. Not only that but the energy major increased its quarterly dividend by 4%, not bad at a time when the oil sector has faced the worst headwinds in decades. The company’s chief executive also said, “We are starting a new era of dividend growth”. That could sound like music to the ears of dividend seeking investors. The company is a reputable name, with a huge business and a commitment to dividend growth.Yet I would still avoid Shell. In fact, I sold down my whole stake this year. The latest dividend increase is welcome and returns Shell to the list of dividend raisers. But it comes on top of a massive dividend cut of two-thirds earlier this year. The company hadn’t cut its dividend since the Second World War and management had made positive noises about maintaining the dividend despite difficult trading conditions. So to hit shareholders with such a large cut just a couple of months later felt disingenuous. While I like the company and believe it can sustain a healthy dividend, I don’t like what the previous move suggested about management’s approach to shareholders. It didn’t strike me as shareholder friendly, which I always regard as a red flag for an investment.Dividend raisers need improved business to keep raisingAnother company I like but do not to invest in right now is the supermarket group Morrison’s. I think the supermarket is a well run company and it has a strong offering. It has increased its dividend in the past several years. Last year it even rewarded shareholders with a special dividend payment of 4p.But I don’t like the competitive environment in which the company operates. Supermarket retailing in the UK is brutally competitive. The rise of Aldi and Lidl makes it harder every year for a company like Morrison’s. Add to that increased online competition and the end of a business rates holiday next year and I think the business pressures will continue to pile up.I like to know what to expect and find strong opportunities for the long term. While the company is one of the stock market’s dividend raisers at the moment, its long-term prospects are less clear. That is why I will avoid Morrison’s for now.

Being a triangular site on a corner, building setbacks left a buildable area at the center of the site. A steep slope of about 40% and finally, the orientation of sunlight and views of the valley.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldThe operation consists of separating the program into two overlapping volumes, placed parallel to the direction of the slope so that in section, the two bodies are related to the site.The lower volume is buried in the ground and adopts a materiality which enables it to be perceived as a base blended into the terrain and the stone cairns enclosing the plot. This volume contains the bedrooms with access to a garden which is located over the lower street level.Save this picture!© Aryeh KornfeldThe upper volume, as abstract as possible, aims to differentiate itself from the site and base. For this purpose, a very pure geometry is designed, and the volume is clad in a single material with an industrial look and a neutral color (slate gray). The break of this volume is to avoid the views of the quarry, the views are concentrated to the valley.This volume houses the most public spaces, and has access to a courtyard at the level of the upper street, through a single large void.Save this picture!Site Plan – First LevelProject gallerySee allShow lessÇanakkale Antenna Tower International CompetitionArchitecture NewsWhy Hollywood Needs to Change its Conception of “The Architect”Articles Share 2007 Save this picture!© Aryeh Kornfeld+ 27 Share “COPY” ArchDaily Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Binimelis-Barahona House / Polidura + TalhoukSave this projectSaveBinimelis-Barahona House / Polidura + Talhouk Houses CopyHouses•Colina, Chile ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officePolidura TalhoukOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesColinaChilePublished on October 26, 2013Cite: “Binimelis-Barahona House / Polidura + Talhouk” [Casa Binimelis-Barahona / Polidura Talhouk] 26 Oct 2013.

European Parliament calls for release of U Win Tin

first_img Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association welcomed the 28 April decision of the European Parliament to adopt the EU Report on Human Rights in the World 2004 that includes a call for the release of renowned Burmese journalist U Win Tin.The European assembly, in response to repeated appeals from Reporters Without Borders, linked the call for the release of the journalist to that of Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.Both organisations also urged European bodies to step up pressure on the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) for Burma to be denied the presidency of the organisation in 2006 unless all political prisoners are released and previous censorship abolished.Article 57 of the report specifies that the European Parliament “calls on the government of Burma, as a first step to establishing a state based on the will of the people, to stop suppressing legitimate and democratic political activities; urges the government to release immediately Aung San Suu Kyi, a former Sakharov Prize winner, and 75-year-old journalist Win Tin, adviser to Aung San Suu Kyi.”Burma’s best known journalist spent his 75th birthday on12 March 2005 in his cell at Rangoon’s notorious Insein Prison. Since his arrest, Win Tin has been deprived of his basic rights, including that of receiving appropriate medical treatment and being able to write.Despite recent pronouncements, the military junta has taken no steps towards freeing this respected intellectual, who was sentenced to 20 years in prison for making “anti-government propaganda”.

Ladies storm to ten-wicket victory

first_imgOxford dismiss Cambridge for an astonishing 56 runs to claim Varsity success VARSITY CRICKET Cambridge 56 Oxford 58 for no wicket It was a confident Oxford team that arrived at Lord’s for this year’s women’s Varsity match in early July. The side had enjoyed an excellent year’s cricket, leaving them certain favourites for the Nursery Ground encounter. However this had also been the case in the previous two Varsity matches, both of which had been narrowly won by the Light Blues. In a toss made all the more important by the threat of rain, Oxford skipper Kat Dickens called correctly and did not hesitate in asking Cambridge to bat first. The ever-reliable Annie Bowden and club president Felicity Allen opened the Oxford bowling. Both exploited the excellent conditions and the breakthrough came with just two runs on the board, when Olivia Sanderson was clean bowled by a vicious Bowden inswinger. The new batsman, Kent player Sarah Hill, hit two fours through the legside but, attempting a similar shot at the other end, was also bowled by Bowden. This brought Cambridge co-captain Georgie Latham to the crease to join their senior batsman Rachel Cowans with the score on 12-2. Cowans had made a slow start, but certainly has ability and her wicket was the most prized in the Cambridge side. Her downfall was a combination of a mix-up with her captain and an excellent piece of fielding by Lady Margaret Hall’s Helen Turner. Turner’s powerful throw from mid-wicket was enough to comfortably run out Cowans – and to bruise the hand of bowler Bowden. The Queen’s player was replaced with the ball by Turner herself, after a controlled display of swing bowling which gave her remarkable figures of 7-4-3-2. At the other end, Allen removed both Tab co-captains, trapping Ping Lo LBW first ball and bowling Latham for a single run, to put Cambridge on the rocks at an incredible 14-5. Kendra Butlin produced a gutsy 22 not out in nearly an hour and a half, but wickets continued to tumble. Allen finished her excellent tenover spell with figures of 3-16 and was replaced by captain-elect Helen Smith from Corpus Christi who bowled six tight overs. A direct hit from Susan Lowrey brought in the number eleven with only 42 runs on the board. Turner took the final wicket, to end with 3-21, and Cambridge had been dismissed for just 56. After this superb performance in the field, victory was a formality, but nevertheless to win by ten wickets required an excellent display by the openers. After a wayward first over conceding ten extras, Cambridge bowled tightly, but Heather Lang and Allen were more than equal to the task. Lang, like Allen, was playing in her final Varsity match, and finished it with a flourish. She hit three fours in the nineteenth over to finish on 29 not out and complete an impressive victory.ARCHIVE: 0th Week MT2003last_img read more
