A dirt-cheap FTSE 100 share to buy today for passive income

first_img Image source: Getty Images. A dirt-cheap FTSE 100 share to buy today for passive income Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it! Where can I get a 9% dividend yield today? There aren’t many options I’d be comfortable considering. But one FTSE 100 share that ticks most of the right boxes for me is  Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB).As a big tobacco stock, Imperial obviously carries certain risks. The biggest worry is probably that global smoking rates will fall faster than expected. But a recent update from the company has convinced me the outlook for the foreseeable future is probably quite safe.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…Focus on what worksImperial’s new chief executive Stefan Bomhard has revamped the group’s strategy and says he’ll focus more closely on tobacco. Investment in newer products such as vapes and heated tobacco will be “more disciplined” and targeted to markets with proven demand.It might seem odd for Imperial to focus on selling cigarettes, given the proven health risks and the long-term decline in smoking rates in most countries. But this is still a big business. Imperial sold 239bn cigarettes last year, generating revenue of £32,562m and an operating profit of £2,731m.Excluding the cost of tobacco duty and other taxes, which the company passes directly to governments, net sales were £7,985m. This tells me Imperial’s business had an underlying operating profit margin of 34% last year. There aren’t many FTSE 100 firms that can match this.Bomhard expects to cut up to £150m of costs by 2023, while making selected investments in new products and marketing. He believes the company can deliver flat profits next year, with a return to modest profit growth between 2023 and 2025.What could go wrong?I have two main concerns about owning this FTSE 100 share. The first is that I think Imperial Brands will always be a mature business in slow decline. I might be wrong, but I think it’s sensible to take this view when trying to value the shares.My second concern is that the tobacco sector could become even more unpopular with investors. I think it’s fair to say some investors will be uncomfortable with the social and ethical implications of this business.I also think there’s a chance banks and other lenders could start to charge a premium for lending to businesses which don’t satisfy environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria. If I’m right, then tobacco firms including Imperial Brands could see their financing costs rise over the coming years. Higher borrowing costs could reduce the amount of spare cash available for shareholder returns.I’d buy this FTSE 100 shareImperial Brands faces some unusual risks for a FTSE 100 company, but I think the stock’s valuation reflects this. Despite a stable outlook, the stock currently trades on just six times 2021 forecast earnings and offers a 9.6% dividend yield.This dividend looks safe enough to me and I believe the stock’s low valuation provides a reasonable margin of safety.I already own some Imperial stock. Based on the latest guidance from the company, I’m happy to keep holding this stock and collecting my dividends. See all posts by Roland Head Roland Head owns shares of Imperial Brands.

Rugby Viadana score one of the quickest ever tries from a restart

first_imgThursday Jan 19, 2017 Rugby Viadana score one of the quickest ever tries from a restart A few weeks back this great try was scored in the Campionato Nazionale Eccellenza (Italian Premiership) by Rugby Viadana 1970’s Ignacio “Nacho” Brex against Rugby Mogliano. As you can see, the try came from a restart kick and it was scored within 8.60 (roughly) seconds!Unfortunately it wasn’t from the kickoff to the match, but actually after a penalty, so it isn’t considered one of the fastest tries ever scored. It must be right up there though when it comes to taking the ball from the restart. A few missed tackles helped, but it’s a great effort nonetheless.Thanks to coach Filippo for sending us the clip!ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries , See it to Believe it Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Adjusting Disease and Weed Solutions Following Stressful Spring

first_img By Andy Eubank – May 31, 2017 Home Indiana Agriculture News Adjusting Disease and Weed Solutions Following Stressful Spring Farmers adapting to tough springAdaptability is crucial for farmers. This year with its spring planting challenges is a good example why. There has already been a lot of adapting in the fields, including planting the crop a second and even third time. Bill McDonald is the new Director of Agronomic Services at Seed Consultants. He says this spring will dictate other adjustments in the original plan farmers made for post-planting.“I’m concerned with a lot of disease issues,” he said. “We’ve put the beans under a lot of stress this year and we’re going to have to be ready to address some of these problems with fungicides. I know a lot of people in a down market like we’ve got haven’t considered using fungicides at an early stage.”But he said it will need to be something to consider in order to improve yields and get a quality seed at the end of the cycle.In many cases, because of the rains, soybeans haven’t been planted when expected following pre-plant herbicide treatments. McDonald says dealing with the resulting weeds will be another necessary adjustment.“We’re going to be looking at giant ragweeds in particular, but other weeds are going to be breaking about the time of the emergence of the beans. We’re going to have to be careful with our selection of herbicides so that we don’t damage that cotyledon unifoliate soybean plant, and it’s going to have to be on a case by case basis. We’re going to have to really pay attention to what we’re doing this year,” he added, “because we may have to do more than one post application this year.”But McDonald remains positive about Indiana’s bean fields overall. There is still plenty of time left in the season.McDonald has served growers in the eastern Corn Belt for many years and is a past Ohio Certified Crop Advisor of the year. He started work for SCI Monday.“Bill brings an outstanding track record of providing excellent agronomic advice as well as impeccable customer service to Seed Consultants. He will be a great addition to lead our agronomic support staff” said Daniel Call, General Manager for Seed Consultants.Get to know Bill McDonald:Bill McDonald-DAS at SCI Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Adjusting Disease and Weed Solutions Following Stressful Spring Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for June 1, 2017Next articleMorning Outlook Andy Eubanklast_img read more

It will meet at Áras an Uachtaráin next Monday to decide whether to refer the legislation to the Supreme Court.If that happens it could take up to 60 days for 5 judges to mull over the bill and decide if the court can uphold it.Should the the legislation be passed, it can never be challenged on Constitutional grounds again by a citizen in the court and will automatically become law.Our Political Correspondent Paraic Gallagher explains the process.”They can pour over it in private – they don’t have to hold an open court sitting” he said.”They appoint somebody to challenge the legislation effectively and then the Attorney-General advises them on the Constitutionality of it – so they hear from both sides”.”Then they have up to 60 days to do that, and then they must deliver their verdict in open court and it must be a minimum of 5 Supreme Court judges who meet to discuss this” he added.
