7%+ dividend yields! 3 cheap UK shares I’d buy for my ISA for 2021

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Royston Wild | Saturday, 9th January, 2021 | More on: BA Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. I don’t care about the uncertain earnings picture for many UK shares. It won’t stop me from investing in my ISA right now. The much-hoped-for economic recovery in 2021 might disappoint as the Covid-19 crisis rolls on. But there remain plenty of top stocks that should still deliver spectacular shareholder returns this year and beyond.Here are several I’d happily buy for my own Stocks and Shares ISA today. They trade on rock-bottom earnings multiples at current prices. But these UK shares also offer investors like me the chance to grab some mighty dividends in 2021.5G 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…One of my favourite foodiesDevro is a perfect UK stock for 2021, I feel. It’s not just that profits at food and food ingredients producers like these remain stable regardless of broader economic conditions. The sausage casings maker has significant exposure to China where meat consumption levels continue to steadily climb.All this is why City analysts reckon Devro’s annual earnings will rise 10% this year. It’s a reading that leaves the FTSE 250 firm trading on a low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 10 times. Combined with a chubby 6.2% dividend yield, these readings make the sausage skin star a top value buy today, I believe.Another safe UK shareI’m of the opinion that Direct Line Insurance Group’s another cut-price UK share worthy of serious attention. The car insurer trades on a P/E ratio of just 13 times for 2021. It sports a meaty 7.1% dividend yield as well.Insurance demand doesn’t tend to vary much during economic upturns and downturns. Those that provide car insurance — a specialism of this particular FTSE 250 stock — tend to be even more resilient. Getting your motor insured is, of course, a legal requirement. As a result, City analysts reckon Direct Line’s earnings will jump 11% year-on-year in 2021.A FTSE 100 giantI also feel confident that BAE Systems (LSE: BA) will continue to enjoy lively custom in 2021 and beyond. The FTSE 100 defence giant has it fingers in many pies and is a leader in a great many tech fields. This makes it a critical supplier to the US and UK militaries, as well as armed forces further afield.Some feared that the Covid-19 crisis could strike a blow to defence budgets in the short-to-medium term. The imminent passing of a $740bn arms spending plan by US lawmakers will put such fears firmly in the shade, however. BAE Systems has already been boosted by an agreement by the British government to spend £16.5bn on defence in November.City analysts are reckoning that BAE Systems’ annual earnings will increase 12% in 2021. This leaves the UK share trading on a forward P/E multiple of 11 times. It leads to predictions of another dividend hike too and consequently a meaty 5% dividend yield. Like Devro and Direct Line, I’d happily buy this UK stock for 2021 and hold it until the end of the decade.

Now they have been joined by a group of nuns using the Web to raise funds with their own online auction, which will run until 30 May.The Benedictine Sisters in Ridgely, Maryland, set out to run their own auction, rather than use an existing online auction service. Sister Jeannette said they saw it as “an opportunity to launch our own internet communications strategy, create better relationships with our supporters, tell people about the Benedictine Programs & Services and control the revenues from banner advertising”.  14 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Young worker on socialist education

first_imgI am a community college student and worker in northern Lower Michigan and I’m writing in response to the Workers World Party Midwest Fightback Conference which I attended on Saturday, March 25, in Detroit. There were many inspiring and effective speakers and workers there, all of them congregated to express the urgency of theory and action to develop a socialist society which will benefit the people.The conference was cosponsored by Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) at Wayne State University, but I noticed that the topic of socialist education wasn’t really explored.The current model for higher education excludes the majority of the population from the many opportunities attending a college or university presents. As a full-time student, I believe it’s our duty to fervently fight for socialist education for all individuals.One of the greatest changes we will see by switching to a tuition-free, socialist system of higher education is increased enrollment rates. A socialist society, where the public is welcomed into these institutions, instead of being charged money by them, is so unlike this society. Under capitalism, individuals who live in poverty, work full-time jobs and live with pre-existing debt fear the economic consequences of further education.I encourage us all to demand that local and federal policymakers treat universities as public institutions rather than corporations whose intentions are only to profit off education. Instead, we must fight for the right to free, quality education for all.Emory P.C.

Seed Companies Preparing for a Cold Wet Spring

first_imgWith freezing temperatures continuing into March, John Long with Mycogen Seeds says spring fieldwork will be put behind schedule, “With the depth of frost being deeper than normal, it is going to take some time to break that up.” He added that standing water may also be an issue. He worried that getting into the fields too early may lead to compaction. Facebook Twitter SHARE With winter maintaining its hold on the Hoosier State, growers will be facing a delay in fieldwork and the first day of planting.  At Commodity Classic, there was lots of talk about the long, cold winter and the expectations of a cold, wet spring. Chris Jeffries with Seed Consultants said this winter has certainly taken a toll on fields across Indiana and Ohio, “It has been a tough winter, and it came upon us very quickly. I have one grower who still has corn in the field because he did not get a chance to harvest it before the storms hit.” Facebook Twitter SHARE John LongHe urges producers to not rush into planting. He says planting in good conditions is better than planting too early, “The hybrids you chose this year will need to have good vigor and cold germination. Nitrogen management will also be issue with plenty of moisture in the soil.” He added, with colder soils, seed treatments may be more popular this year.center_img Seed Companies Preparing for a Cold Wet Spring Previous articleClassic Trade Show Offers A Look into the FutureNext articleVilsack Takes Stand for RFS Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News Seed Companies Preparing for a Cold Wet Spring Seed Companies Preparing for a Cold Wet Spring By Gary Truitt – Feb 28, 2014 last_img read more

Soybean Yield Contest Winners Hit Triple Digits

first_img Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Feb 2, 2016 Triple digit soybean yieldsWant to see some amazing soybean yields? Thirteen farmers in the Asgrow Yield Contest posted over 100 bushel per acre yields topping out with Maryland farmer John Rigdon and his 134.5 bushels total. Indiana’s Craig Small from Monroe City in Knox County registered 108.1 bushels with AG3832 Brand soybeans, and with that same variety George Corya of Commiskey in Jennings County hit 104 ½.Dipal Chaudhari, ‎Asgrow Brand Manager at Monsanto says the triple digit yields are important benchmarks especially where the varieties were new in 2015.“That sets the bar,” he explained. “We always talk about our latest products have the latest genetics which is setting the bar, raising the bar for yield expectations, and this is proof in the pudding that we’re continuing to do that. As we go into ’16 we’re really excited to see these products become our Rock Star products that are delivering that yield.”Chaudhari talked to farmers who achieved 100 + yields and there were some keys to making it happen.“They would say it’s early planting. They got out there in early April, and that’s not always possible so it’s the cards that we’re dealt with from Mother Nature that we have to work with. It’s specifically placing those varieties where they need to be in terms of the field conditions, in terms of what they’re facing, and they say they really work closely with their dealer and DSM to understand that product’s characteristics and how that fits the field. And then there’s managing it throughout the season, whether it’s fertility or fungicide, whatever the case may be, and they’re able to manage that throughout the season which really helps them setup for success.”His advice to farmers wanting better soybean yields is to give the bean crop the same management attention as corn.“In the Midwest we tend to focus a lot on corn and we don’t bat an eye to spend say an hour, two hours talking about corn and corn placement when we go to talk to farmers during selling season,” he told HAT. “Then we spend about 15-20 minutes talking about the soybean varieties. But the moment we can spend more time on soybeans and give it the same attention from a management standpoint, the quicker we’ll get to the 3 digits.”Yield contest winners will be honored at Commodity Classic in March in New Orleans with an awards banquet and private concert featuring country star Easton Corbin.
