Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. As once daily expenses like coffee treats and travel restart, I see now as a good time to think about passive income investments. Rather than just getting back into old spending habits, I’m focussing on setting up new passive income streams.Here I explain why I use dividend shares for passive income investment. I also explain how I would consider investing £250 each month.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…Dividend shares as passive income investmentsNot all shares pay out dividends. That doesn’t mean they aren’t attractive. For example, a growth company may reinvest profits to grow faster. That could help its share price appreciate.But for passive income, I prefer to look for shares that pay out dividends. What’s that? A dividend is basically excess money a company pays out to its shareholders.Not all companies pay dividends, so I start by looking at a company’s dividend policy. Normally this is easy to find – it should be on its most recent annual report online. A dividend policy is just a statement of intent, however. Even if a company aims to pay dividends, events can intervene. For example, during last year’s challenging market, dividend payers like JD Wetherspoon, Greggs, and HSBC suspended their shareholder payouts. That is always a risk with dividend paying shares.Free cash flowNext I look at a company’s cash flows. Essentially this details money coming in such as revenue and investment gains, set against outgoings such as staff costs and rental payments. The greater a company’s free cash flow, the easier it will find it to pay dividends.A company doesn’t have to be free cash flow positive in a given year to pay dividends. But over time, if a company keeps bleeding money it typically would struggle to pay dividends.Why do I zoom in on free cash flow and not earnings, a figure which is sometimes easier to find? A company’s earnings are a useful indicator of its financial performance. But not all the items they include involve cash. For example, amortisation may reduce earnings. But an amortisation expense does not necessarily represent cash going out the door.Cash is what a company needs to sustain dividends over the course of years. So I find free cash flow the most useful metric when considering the potential of passive income investments.Drip feeding in passive income investmentsI find £250 a month is enough to start setting up a passive income stream. At £3,000 a year, it would allow me to diversify across different companies and sectors. That is an important way to manage my risk, in case one company’s performance turns sour. At first I would stick with a couple of blue chip names with attractive dividend payouts. Dividends are never guaranteed, though.With adjusted free cash flows of £7.3bn before dividends last year, British American Tobacco was able to raise its payout once more. Yielding 7.5%, each £250 I put into the company would prospectively offer roughly £18.75 of passive income each year. However, declining cigarette volumes in many markets are a risk to future revenues and profits.I’d also consider putting money into financial services provider M&G. Its dividend yield is even higher than BAT’s, at 7.7%. So with £250, I would be hoping for an annual payout of around £19.25. But risks include any economic contraction damaging demand for the company’s financial services products.last_img read more

Recap from Highlanders’ historic Super Rugby title victory over Hurricanes

first_imgMonday Jul 6, 2015 Recap from Highlanders’ historic Super Rugby title victory over Hurricanes The Highlanders have arrived back in Dunedin and the celebrations will no doubt continue throughout the week, as they take in what was a historic and well deserved 21-14 Super Rugby final win over the Hurricanes on Saturday. Co-captain Nasi Manu, who is heading to Edinburgh for next season, said “I still can’t really believe that we won it. It will be good just to enjoy it with our supporters and definitely do a couple of days (of partying).”The team were greeted in the arrivals hall by a sea of blue and gold flags, as fans performed a celebratory Haka, relishing the rare championship victory, their first Super Rugby title ever.Coach Jamie Joseph said that he was pleased to bring it home for the loyal fans.“Rugby touches a lot of people in the deep south so it’s just great to give something back.”Hurricanes halfback TJ Perenara said that he felt for his team, who were bidding farewell to long serving Jeremy Thrush (Gloucester), Ma’a Nonu (Toulon) and Conrad Smith (Pau).“It’s probably the boys who are staying who are most disappointed we couldn’t give them what they deserved. You have the most capped forward of all time and the two most capped Hurricanes of all time in that mix,” said 23-year-old All Black, Perenara. “The contribution they’ve given the club is immense and we wanted to send them off the right way. They deserved the win. We worked hard for each other every single day, we tried to better ourselves every single day and I saw these boys grind every day since November. We worked bloody hard.“We came up against a good Highlanders team and they took the opportunities that presented themselves… you take more opportunities than the other team in a big game and you probably come out on top and that’s what happened tonight.”As for that try, Elliot Dixon has since said that he was sure he got it down, despite his immediate reaction seeming otherwise. “It (the camera) just panned to me at a bad time.“As soon as they said TMO I was like ‘oh no’, then everyone saw me shaking my head and thought I didn’t get it down. But yeah, I got it down.”Highlights wrap from the brilliant game is below, and the trophy presentation on page twocredit: sky sport nz The Highlanders Super Rugby title trophy presentation and celebrationsADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Single-Family Rental Securitizations Get a Boost

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe Single-Family Rental Securitizations Get a Boost About Author: Xhevrije West The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago A drop in first-time homeownership in the U.S. due to the lack of affordable housing has given single-family rental (SFR) securitizations a boost.Moody’s Investors Service said in a report that housing affordability for first-time homebuyers has been decreasing since 2000. This phenomenon has, in turn, provided a higher demand for rentals in the market.Moody’s reported that the lack of affordability for first-time homeowners, due to a decrease in personal income and rising home prices, has hit the Generation Y cohort, especially hard as those in their 20s and 30s seek to form households and purchase homes.”A dearth of ‘for-sale’ inventory of mid-to-lower price homes, combined with ongoing tight credit conditions, forces many to remain in rentals,” Moody’s said. “In addition, many potential first-time home buyers are burdened with high student loans that further constrain their buying capabilities. As a consequence, demand for rentals is remaining very strong for the limited number of available rental properties.”The U.S. Census Bureau reported that the rental vacancy is now at 7 percent, down from 11 percent in 2009.Moody’s believes that the “drop in vacancy bodes well for the SFRs that we rate, especially regarding anticipated future enhanced rental revenue as Gen Y renters are a large component of SFR renters. This also portends higher liquidation proceeds on potential sales of SFR properties.”The report noted that rental rates will continue benefit SFR securitizations.  Moody’s said that the increasingly unattainable goal of homeownership for many and the low national rental vacancy rate will raise rental demand and rents, both of which bode well for SFR cash flows.”Stronger demand for rental properties will benefit SFR securitizations by enhancing borrower and transaction-specific revenue streams and net cash flows, while also potentially increasing recoveries on foreclosures of underlying properties, should the need arise,” the report said. “The continued financial strength of borrowers and compliance with transaction performance metrics are more likely in this healthy industry environment.” Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Previous: Can Banks Handle Another Financial Crisis?

The plea has been filed in the name of ‘Bhagwan SriKrishna Virjman’, through next friend Ranjana Agnihotri. The list of Petitioners also includes six devotees. The plea seeks “removal of encroachment and superstructure illegally raised by Committee of Management of alleged Trust Masjid Idgah with the consent of Sunni Central Board of Waqf …at Katra Keshav Dev city Mathura belonging to deity Shree Krishna Virajman.” Describing the first Petitioner, i.e. the deity himself, the plea states: “He is minor. He is a juristic person. He can sue and be sued through shebait and in his absence through next friend. It can own, acquire and possess the property. It has every right to protect its property and to recover its lost property through shebait and in absence of shebait through next friend by availing an appropriate remedy in Court of law.” The second plaintiff is ‘Shree Krishna Janmbhoomi’—the place of birth of Lord Shree Krishna, which as per the Plaintiffs has “special significance” in religious scriptures as well as under Hindu law. The other plaintiffs are the devotees. They seek to ensure that Dharshan, Pooja, rituals according to Vedic Sanatan Dharma, faith, belief, usages, traditions and customs guaranteed under Article 25 of the Constitution of India are performed at the actual birth place of the deity. “The Plaintiffs have right under Article 26 (Twenty Six) of the Constitution of India to regain, hold and manage the property belonging to, owned and possessed by deity Lord Shree Krishna Virajmaan,” they argued.It is alleged that in 1968, the Society Shree Krishna Janamasthan Seva Sangh entered into a compromise with the Committee of Management of Trust Masjid Idgah, conceding a considerable portion of property belonging to the deity to the latter. Disputing the legality of this compromise, the Plaintiffs have submitted: “That it is relevant to mention that Shree Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sangh has no proprietary or ownership right in the property of Katra Keshavdev which stood vested in the deity and the Trust.” It is further contended: “The original karagar i.e. the birth place of Lord Krishna lies beneath the construction raised by Committee of Management i.e. Trust Masjid Idgah. The true fact will come out before the Court after excavation.” The Sunni Central Board of Waqf has been arrayed as a Defendant since it is alleged that the Board granted approval to the Committee of Management Trust Masjid Idgah to enter into a compromise with Shree Krishna Janmasthan Seva Sangh, giving away some of the deity’s land for building the Mosque. Committee of Management of Trust Masjid Idgah has also been arrayed as a Defendant, “as it without any authority of law and in utter violation of decree of the Court with the help of some Muslims put super structure and encroached upon the land of Katra Keshav Dev belonging to Shree Krishna Janmasthan Trust and the deity.” Further, Shree Krishna Janmbhoomi Trust has been arrayed as an Opposite Party, as it is contended that the Trust has remained non-functional since 1958 and it has “failed to protect, manage and save the property of the deity.” The Petitioners have submitted, “Under Hindu Law prevalent in India from thousands of years it is well recognized that the property once vested in the deity shall continue to be the deities property and property vested in the deity is never destroyed or lost and it can be regained and re-established whenever it is freed, found or recovered from the clutches of invaders, ultras or hoodlums.”Click Here To Download Copy Of Plaint[Read Copy Of Plaint]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Until you are a part of one of these events, you just can’t understand what it means to these disabled hunters and to yourself.”Green said the hunters have overcome their disabilities and are looking for opportunities to participate in activities that others take for granted.last_img read more

Another cache of documents related to Ghislaine Maxwell expected to be released

first_imgPaul Zimmerman/WireImageBy JAMES HILL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Dozens of previously sealed court documents from a now-settled civil lawsuit against Ghislaine Maxwell are expected to be publicly released in the coming days, igniting a fresh round of speculation about what details the records might contain about Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged child sex-trafficking operation and about Maxwell’s alleged role in the conspiracy.Interest in the court records has only intensified in the aftermath of Maxwell’s indictment earlier this month on charges accusing her of enabling and, in some instances, participating in the sexual abuse of three minor girls in the mid-1990s. Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to the charges and is being held without bond while she awaits a trial next year.Maxwell’s lawyers are still fighting to halt the release of some documents, asking Senior U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska to reconsider her ruling or — alternatively — to delay the release of the documents pending an appeal.In a letter to the court on Wednesday, Maxwell’s attorneys contended that she was set up in a “perjury trap” by federal prosecutors and lawyers for an alleged victim of Epstein and Maxwell.The letter suggested — without direct evidence — that sealed portions from Maxwell’s depositions in the case were leaked to the government, who then charged her with two counts of perjury for alleged false statements in her testimony. Prosecutors declined to comment on the allegation.Preska denied Maxwell’s motion but agreed to a two-day reprieve for Maxwell to appeal the unsealing decision. As a result, some documents will be unsealed Thursday and others as soon as Monday, unless the appeals court acts before then.The court papers — potentially running into the thousands of pages — come from a defamation lawsuit filed in 2015 against Maxwell by Virginia Giuffre, who alleged that Maxwell recruited her as a 16-year-old into a life of sexual servitude to Epstein. She also accused Maxwell and Epstein of directing her, between 2000 to 2002, to have sex with a number of their prominent associates, most famously Britain’s Prince Andrew.Maxwell and all the men accused by Giuffre, including the prince, have denied the allegations.The sealed court filings contain the names of hundreds of people — some famous and some not — who socialized, traveled or worked with Epstein over the span of more than a decade. Epstein, a registered sex-offender, was found dead last August in an apparent suicide in his jail cell while awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges. The late financier has previously been linked to a host of high-profile business leaders, scientists, royals and politicians.Giuffre and Maxwell reached a confidential settlement just days before a scheduled trial in 2017, leaving behind a court docket littered with sealed and redacted records inaccessible to the public and the press. A substantial majority of the non-public court records were kept private by both sides of the dispute under a court-approved confidentiality order.The non-public records also include the identities of people who provided information in the case under an expectation of confidentiality, plus the names of alleged victims and individuals accused of enabling Epstein or participating in the abuse, according to public portions of the court record.A fight for transparencyIn April 2018, the Miami Herald intervened in the closed case, filing a motion to unseal the court records. Giuffre and her attorneys then joined the Herald in arguing for near-total disclosure, while Maxwell’s lawyers advocated for keeping the vast majority of the documents sealed.Last year, a federal appeals court in New York granted the Herald’s motion in part, releasing about 2,000 pages of previously-sealed documents, including limited excerpts from sworn testimony of Maxwell and Giuffre, who each sat for multiple depositions prior to the settlement. The appellate court then sent the case back to the trial court to decide what to do about the rest of the sealed documents.The sheer volume of the remaining sealed and redacted filings in the case, and the hundreds of individuals whose names appear in the court record, resulted in months of disputes over a protocol for reviewing the documents and notifying non-parties whose names would become public as documents are unsealed.Preska, who inherited the case following the death of the original trial court judge Robert Sweet, eventually settled on initiating the process to review the documents in stages.The unsealing of the first cache of documents comes with exceptions for medical records, personally identifying information such as addresses and social security numbers, and for the identities of alleged minor victims. That information will remain redacted.And, for the time being, records will be unsealed only as they relate to the first two of the hundreds of non-party “John Does” whose names appear in the records. (“John Doe” is the generic name given to all the non-parties. It does not mean that all the people are men.)Those two people, referred to as John Does 1 and 2 in the record, received notice in May that their names could become public. Neither responded. The unsealing of the remainder of the names won’t happen until each is notified and given an opportunity to object — a process that could take many more months.‘Extremely personal, confidential’ testimonyIncluded in the first batch of court documents reviewed by Preska are filings and exhibits associated with Maxwell’s first seven-hour deposition in April of 2016. Giuffre’s lawyers subsequently went to the judge in May 2016 seeking a court order to compel Maxwell to respond to questions she declined to answer.Maxwell’s attorneys have described these documents, which include multiple excerpts of her testimony, as containing “intrusive questions about her sex life,” and contended that Giuffre’s lawyers “extensively, selectively, and misleadingly” quote from Maxwell’s deposition.“The subject matter of these [documents] is extremely personal, confidential, and subject to considerable abuse by the media,” wrote Maxwell’s attorney, Jeffrey Pagliuca, in June.Giuffre’s lawyer, Sigrid McCawley, argued that public interest in the case “weighs in favor of unsealing Maxwell’s deposition, not against it.”“Maxwell’s objection is a blatant attempt to stall the unsealing process by creating unjustified obstacles and inducing this Court into a pattern of delay that will ensure the documents in this case, which are clearly subject to a presumption of public access, never see the light of day,” McCawley wrote.Other exhibits to these filings include summaries of flight logs kept by Epstein’s pilots, portions of police reports and other documents concerning the person identified as “John Doe 1.”Though Maxwell argued that release of these records would cause her undue embarrassment and annoyance, Preska ordered the documents partially unsealed, with names of non-parties other than John Does 1 and 2 remaining sealed, pending notification.“In her first deposition … Ms. Maxwell refused to testify as to any consensual adult behavior and generally disclaimed any knowledge of underage activity,” Preska said during a hearing on July 23. “In the context of this case, especially its allegations of sex trafficking of young girls, the Court finds that any minor embarrassment or annoyance resulting from disclosure of Ms. Maxwell’s mostly non-testimony about behavior that has been widely reported in the press is far outweighed by the presumption of public access.”Emails between Maxwell and Epstein in 2015Another group of documents set to be partially unsealed concern an effort by Giuffre’s lawyers to get court approval to take additional witness depositions and an extension of time in order to complete them.Maxwell sought to keep these records sealed, too. Her lawyers argued that Giuffre’s team had used this routine court filing to gratuitously attach as exhibits the entire transcript of a witness deposition and the full text of Maxwell’s 418-page testimony of April 2016.“These pleadings concern what should have been a straightforward request by [Giuffre] to exceed the presumptive 10 deposition limit set by the Court,” Maxwell’s lawyers argued. “It was not. Instead of simply asking to exceed the presumptive limit, [Giuffre] felt the urge to pack the record with deposition testimony subject to the protective order and references to multiple non-party Does.”But Preska was unpersuaded and ordered the filings unsealed, subject to the continued redactions of non-party names.The judge also ruled that an exhibit containing communications between Maxwell and Epstein from January 2015 would be unsealed. Based on previous court records in the case, Maxwell and Epstein exchanged at least seven emails in the weeks following a court filing by Giuffre containing the allegations that she had been directed to have sex with several of their prominent associates.
