15 FTSE 100 stocks that haven’t cut their dividends in 2020

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! 15 FTSE 100 stocks that haven’t cut their dividends in 2020 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. Dividend investing has become a whole lot harder in recent months. As a result of the economic uncertainty associated with the coronavirus, over 40 companies in the FTSE 100 index have cancelled or suspended their dividends. Many others, including income stalwart Royal Dutch Shell, have reduced their payouts significantly.There are, however, a number of companies that have maintained, or even increased, their dividends in 2020. With that in mind, here’s a look at 15 FTSE 100 companies that haven’t made cuts this year.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…Consumer Defensive stocksThe Consumer Defensive sector (which includes consumer goods companies, alcoholic beverage companies, tobacco companies, and supermarkets) is always a good place to start when it comes to reliable dividends. That’s because they tend to generate relatively steady earnings throughout the economic cycle.Some FTSE 100 companies in this area include consumer goods champions Unilever (trailing yield: 3.1%) and Reckitt Benckiser (2.4%), alcoholic beverage giant Diageo (2.4%), tobacco legend British American Tobacco (6.4%), and supermarket Tesco (4%).Healthcare stocksHealthcare stocks also tend to be pretty reliable dividend payers. That’s because demand for healthcare tends to remain relatively steady. People still need medication during a recession.The Healthcare sector hasn’t disappointed in the current crisis. As it stands, all the major healthcare stocks in the FTSE 100, including AstraZeneca (2.7%), GlaxoSmithKline (4.8%), Smith & Nephew (2%), and Hikma Pharmaceuticals (1.5%), have either maintained or increased their dividend payouts.Financial stocksFinancial stocks aren’t always the most reliable dividend payers. That’s because their earnings tend to fluctuate when stock markets fluctuate, or during periods of economic turbulence. This year, a number of well-known FTSE 100 financial stocks, including the likes of Lloyds Bank, Barclays, and Aviva have suspended or cancelled their dividends (the UK banks were actually forced to suspend their dividends by the Bank of England).However, there are a handful of FTSE 100 financial companies that have maintained their payouts in the current crisis. Companies in this area of the market that haven’t cut their payouts, so far, include insurers Legal & General Group (8%) and Prudential (3.3%), and online broker Hargreaves Lansdown (2%).Other FTSE 100 dividend payersFinally, there are a handful of stocks in other areas of the market that haven’t cut their dividends. For example, in the Utilities sector, there’s National Grid (5%). It recently lifted its dividend by 2.6%. In the Chemicals sector, Croda is still paying its dividend (1.7%). And in the Technology sector, Sage has maintained its dividend (2.4%).Picking the best dividend stocksLooking at this list of stocks, a couple of takeaways spring to mind. Firstly, some sectors appear to be better than others when it comes to reliable dividends. Consumer Defensive and Healthcare, in particular, stand out when it comes to dividends.Secondly, the majority of these dividend stocks have lower yields. Whereas many FTSE 100 companies that had yields of 6%+ have cut their dividends, many that have yields of between 2% to 4% have maintained their payouts.If you’re looking for reliable dividends, this kind of yield bracket could be your best bet.

The Persimmon share price slips: what’s the 2021 outlook like for this FTSE 100 firm?

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. House prices reached a record high in December, but this may be fleeting as many analysts have forecast a sector downturn in 2021. The lasting effects of pandemic restrictions and a job losses mean an ongoing rise is perhaps unsustainable. Some analysts are even predicting a housing market crash in 2021. This could be problematic for FTSE 100 property stocks such as housebuilder Persimmon (LSE:PSN).A positive trading statementThe Persimmon share price rose nearly 64% from 2020’s March market crash up to the year end. It fared much better than expected during the pandemic and ended the year on a high. Year-to-date the share price has fallen slightly, but its latest trading statement is encouraging. 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…Completion delays were an inevitable result of the Covid-19 restrictions, but the company coped well and adapted its procedures. It ended the year with group revenues of £3.33bn, down £0.32bn on 2019.The average selling price of a Persimmon house increased by 7%, which amounted to £15k year-on-year. This was a boost to the group, and a highlight in a difficult year. The ONS says the national average selling price for newly-built homes was around £300k (as of August 2020). This makes Persimmon’s average private selling price of £250.9k about 16% lower than the UK national average.Tough times ahead… or not?First-time buyers drive Persimmon’s sales and in 2020, around half its private home completions were to this target market. This may be a problem in the future if mortgage lending becomes stricter and young people struggle to get on the property ladder. While the furlough scheme kept many consumers’ finances ticking over in 2020, there’s concern job losses will mount in the coming months.In response to the pandemic, the government brought in a temporary halt to stamp duty on residential properties in the price bracket below £500k. This stamp duty holiday will end on March 31, so buyer demand is expected to drop back after that.Yet the government has encouraged construction to continue throughout the ongoing restrictions. And it’s likely to continue to support housebuilding as a national shortage of homes remains an underlying problem. Therefore, a counter-argument to a potential housing crash is that the government will encourage construction and housebuilding to get the economy moving again. Another theory is that with Brexit out of the way, international interest in property purchases will increase. Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Persimmon’s share price outlookPersimmon’s price-to-earnings ratio is below 10, which means it’s potentially still in bargain territory. Earnings per share are £2.66. At around 9%, its dividend yield is also impressive, but this is only covered once by earnings. While I find these financials tempting, I do have concerns that the share price may fall further in the coming months. Then again, its enticing dividend could make it a nice addition to my long-term portfolio. I’ll add it to my watch list and possibly consider it once the outlook is clearer.I could also consider a property fund as an alternative way to invest in this sector. But property funds often respond in a similar vein to the economy. Therefore, if the economy is thriving, the property funds enjoy a good performance too. Sadly, the UK economy is far from thriving and I’d be wary of investing in property funds at this time.  Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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.

No plans to expand student section this season

Carter Stadium has room for about 4,000 students, or about half the undergraduate population, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Christopher Del Conte said.But Del Conte said this season student attendance is averaging around 4,500-4,700, which leaves about 500-600 students without a seat.“You can see how they just cram themselves in there because you can see how bent my bleachers are,” Del Conte said. “They created an unbelievable home field advantage.”The standing room only zone behind the student section is meant to hold the overflow.“We’ve created a great standing room only environment,” Del Conte said. “If you’re not in the student section you can stand right here and go crazy as well because you’re standing anyways.”Still, Student Body President Maddie Reddick said some students are unhappy that the university isn’t opening more spaces for them. Reddick said she has received emails from students complaining about the size of the student section.Reddick and Chief of Staff Matt Miller have been meeting with officials in the athletics department about the student section. Miller said that there is no quick fix.“Overall athletics knows it’s an issue, but they also know there is really not a solution at this time because basically the entire stadium is sold out for the entire season,” Miller said. “The best solution, for now, is show up earlier.”Junior strategic communication major Danielle Deffebach said student seats should have been more of a priority before the stadium was sold out.“I don’t think it’s fair,” Deffebach said. “I get we have to make money at football games, that’s what football is for, but I think it would be better if they would open up the other sections.”Sophomore business major Lalita Sundarrajan said the student section should be larger.“For our student population, I feel like it’s a little bit small,” Sundarrajan said. “Our school is growing and there is more interest in football.”Sundarrajan said if ticket holders don’t show up those seats should be for students.“In that instance, there should be a caveat that students should be allowed to go fill up those empty seats because ultimately, we are students, we are paying to go here,” Sundarrajan said.Del Conte said there are no expansion plans.“I think I’ll address expansion when  we’ve got ourselves to the point where we are completely popping at the seams everywhere” Del Conte said. “I’d rather have it packed, loud, and energetic. Bigger is sometimes not always better.”The next chance to pack the student section is at 11 a.m. Saturday when the Horned Frogs take on the University of Texas Longhorns for homecoming.

TCU drops 5th straight after 71-54 loss to Texas

first_imgTwitter Texas center Prince Ibeh (44) drives to the basket over TCU defenders Devonta Abron (23) and Vladimir Brodziansky (10) during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game on Jan. 26 in Austin, Texas. Texas won 71-54.

When he made two in a row midway through the second half, Ibeh got a raucous standing ovation from a home crowd that was ready to wince every time he stepped up to the shot.“I don’t know how to describe that,” Ibeh said. “I’ve been shooting free throws well in practice. Tonight after seeing one go in, I settled down.”Texas (13-7, 5-3 Big 12) also got a career-high 22 points from freshman guard Kerwin Roach, Jr.Roach, whose superb athletic ability has yet to translate into big minutes or consistent scoring in Big 12 play, was 6 of 9 shooting and also grabbed five rebounds for the Longhorns.Malique Trent and Chris Washburn scored nine points apiece, and Devonta Abron added seven points and eight rebounds for TCU (9-11, 1-7), which dropped its fifth straight game.For Texas, the win comes in a stretch where every victory builds confidence as first-year Texas coach Shaka Smart readies his team for the second-half of a rugged Big 12 schedule.Getting more games like this one from Ibeh could be critical. Texas has been in search of dependable inside scoring ever since center Cam Ridley was sidelined by surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot shortly after Christmas.“Sometimes an opportunity comes a guy’s way and they make the most of it. His confidence is growing,” Smart said.TCU beat the Longhorns in their first matchup in Fort Worth on Jan. 9 but the Horned Frogs were barely in this one as they struggled with Texas’ pressure defense, poor shooting and an inability to stop Texas from scoring almost at will near the basket. Texas opened up a 10-point lead by halftime.“They cause a lot of problems with their perimeter players both offensively and defensively. We knew they were going to bring pressure,” TCU coach Trent Johnson said.Texas guards Isaiah Taylor and Javan Felix, the catalysts for Texas’ biggest wins this season, took a back seat early in a ragged game that saw 27 turnovers in the first half. Texas shrugged off its own tough shooting night — 0-7 on 3-pointers in the first half — and outscored TCU 36-20 in the paint.Texas found its touch from long range just in time to snuff out TCU’s only real hope for a rally. The Horned Frogs opened the second half with a 3-pointer by Brandon Parish before Felix answered at the other end.A few minutes later, TCU had a chance to pull within three, but misfired on three straight possessions before Felix made another 3-pointer and Texas quickly pushed the lead back up to 48-36.TIP-INSTCU: After their first meeting, TCU’s scouting report likely noted contesting Texas on 3-pointers and keeping Taylor in check. Ibeh turned into an unexpected matchup problem. Ibeh had just six points and five rebounds against TCU when the Horned Frogs won.Texas: Texas got sloppier than usual but it didn’t end up costing the Longhorns very much. Their 15 turnovers snapped a five-game streak of having less than 10.“I kind of had a feeling that was coming,” Smart said.TURNING POINTTexas is 4-1 since losing to TCU in the third game of the Big 12 schedule. That run has included big wins over league title contenders Iowa State and West Virginia. The only loss was on the road at Kansas.Ibeh called losing to TCU three weeks ago a turning point for the Longhorns.“Everyone had to look in the mirror and realize we were digging ourselves in a hole,” Ibeh said.WHAT’S NEXTTCU hosts Tennessee on SaturdayTexas hosts Vanderbilt on Saturday + posts TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks Facebook TCU baseball finds their biggest fan just by saying hellolast_img read more
