Investing advice from Rudyard Kipling? Yes – really

first_imgPersonally, I haven’t sold anything. On the other hand, I haven’t bought much, either: on a practical basis, it made more sense for me to wait until the start of the new tax year, and the opportunity to use up a fresh ISA allowance. No stranger to personal setbacks and tragedies, Kipling would even so have struggled to imagine the scale of what is going on right now. Back in 1910 – when the poem If… was written – even the global pneumonia pandemic of 1918, which killed millions, lay in the future.Nevertheless, it’s clear that a lot of investors are losing their heads.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…Sell! Sell! Sell!On a factual level, the evidence is incontrovertible. Malcolm Wheatley | Sunday, 29th March, 2020 | More on: ABF DGE NXT Second, there’s been a ‘dash for cash’. Clearly, with Bank Rate at a historic low of 0.1% (and believe me, I never thought that I’d ever write those words), cashed-up investors aren’t going to get much of a return. What causes share prices – and therefore stock indices – to go down is selling pressure. And with the FTSE 100 down 35% since 20 January as I write this on 25 March, there’s clearly been a lot of just that. 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. Apologies for Rudyard Kipling’s slightly archaic language, but rarely have his sentiments been more appropriate. Malcolm Wheatley holds none of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Associated British Foods and Diageo. 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. As Kipling observed, it’s all about keeping your head. No one knows when exactly that day will be, though. And the present stock market turmoil could continue for months. The logic seems to be twofold. But now? Maybe not. Ditto companies such as Diageo and Next – with the latter’s share price putting it on a P/E ratio of 8.5, on a historic basis, as I write these words. That said, cashing up when shares have fallen so far is likely to crystallise heavy losses. So there’ll be rather less wealth to preserve.Giants laid lowSo what should investors do, going forward? What should you do? See all posts by Malcolm Wheatley “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” “If you can keep your head, while all about you are losing theirs… you’ll be a man, my son.” And on a forward basis?

As I’ve written many times, the problem with selling is that one has to decide what to buy – and in today’s fast-moving world, that can be tricky. Primark, for instance, has closed all its stores in every country – who could have foreseen that just a few weeks ago? Its owner, Associated British Foods, is one of those quality businesses that to me have always tended to have too rich a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio and too low a yield every time that I’ve taken a look.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. The reputation of many top UK dividend stocks has been damaged in this year’s market crash. However, not all dividend stocks have been affected by cuts.Today, I want to look at three stocks which I think we can trust to provide a reliable 5%+ cash yield for the foreseeable future. When the top fixed-rate Cash ISA is about 1.25%, I think dividend stocks are worth considering as an alternative source of income.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…A safe 7% yield?My first pick is FTSE 100 motor and home insurer Direct Line Insurance Group (LSE: DLG). Although this well-known firm did cancel last year’s final dividend in April, the company has now committed to a full catch-up payment.Holders of this UK dividend stock will receive a 2020 interim dividend of 7.4p per share and a special dividend of 14.4p later this year. That’s a total payout of 21.8p per share, giving the stock a yield of about 7%.Direct Line’s performance has remained stable this year and sales of policies under group brands, such as Direct Line and Churchill, have continued to grow. I believe the firm’s mix of direct selling and price comparison sales will help to protect its market share and generate attractive shareholder returns.Looking ahead, I think shareholders should be able to generate a cash income of at least 7% per year by buying Direct Line shares at current levels.A UK dividend stock you might have missedMy next pick is a share you might not have heard of. Greencoat UK Wind (LSE: UKW) is an investment company which owns wind farms around the UK. By investing in Greencoat, you can effectively invest directly in wind farms which aren’t listed on the stock market.In recent years, Greencoat UK Wind has performed rather better than most traditional utility stocks. The firm’s dividend payments have kept pace with UK inflation, providing a reliable income for investors. This year’s forecast payout of 7p per share gives the shares a forecast yield of 5%. I see that as attractive for a renewable energy investment.Right now, I think the main risk is that lower power prices could put pressure on future earnings. This could limit dividend growth. Despite this, I think UK dividend stocks like Greencoat are an attractive way to invest in a sector that’s expected to keep growing. I’d keep buying.Specialist focus yields 6%+My third pick is a specialist firm with a long-term focus. FTSE 100 life insurer Phoenix Group (LSE: PHNX) doesn’t sell many policies directly to the public. Instead, it buys up ‘books’ of existing policies from other insurers and combines these into its large and focused operation.This enables Phoenix to generate cost savings and high levels of surplus cash. Much of this is returned to shareholders each year through the group’s generous dividends. To give you a taste, Phoenix generated surplus cash of £707m last year. About £465m was of this returned to shareholders through dividends.Phoenix’s dividends haven’t been interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. Broker forecasts suggest a payout of 47.5p per share this year. At a share price of around 700p, that would give a cash yield of 6.8%.I see this as a pure-play income pick for investors in UK dividend stocks. I wouldn’t expect too much capital growth but, as an income play, I rate Phoenix very highly.

Totaling 1,000 rental apartments, 10,000 sq ft of restaurants and 25,000 sq ft of retail, the mixed-use development is broken into three phases. The Florida-based developer, Asi Cymbal, expects the project to have a positive long-term economic benefit to the city and local community of Fort Lauderdale.Save this picture!Courtesy of BIG“Our intent here is to create a world class project that will serve as a model for architecture, creativity, and energy along the most prime stretch of waterfront in Downtown Fort Lauderdale,” says Asi Cymbal, owner of Cymbal Development.Save this picture!DiagramSave this picture!DiagramSave this picture!DiagramSituated in an industrial gap in Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk park, Marina Lofts stitches together the final arm of the currently fragmented public space along the New River. BIG’s design frames the space with a generous public promenade bounded towards south by a 3-phase series of residential towers, creating public life along the riverfront while maintaining the existing marine activities of Fort Lauderdale. The two initial housing towers are treated as one continuous building “breaking” at the center to form an opening which allows maximum pedestrian activity to flow between the buildings and extends the city life out to the waterfront. Save this picture!Courtesy of BIG “The project fills the gap in the waterfront of Downtown Fort Lauderdale stitching the existing fragments of promenade together into a new and revitalized river park adding density and life to the scenic setting. The two buildings are torn open to form a cave and a canyon –opening up for the neighborhood to reach the river . A design made through subtraction rather than addition. ” Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner, BIG.Save this picture!Courtesy of BIGAs both towers ascend, the crack between them allows for flexibility in apartment sizes by liberating the units from the structural grid and enabling living spaces to scale up or down as desired. The solid infill of the void maintains privacy between units by directing the windows in carefully-orchestrated locations. Save this picture!Floor PlanThe site of the third tower is currently home to a 250-boat garage which remains intact as the future tower straddles the entrance to the garage door allowing boats to easily pass back and forth beneath its legs. The existing water taxi station is augmented with shading structures and permanent pavilions to further activate the connection across the river. The waterfront will be a lushly landscaped park with ample setbacks from the water to provide more public space for the South Riverwalk. A café, retail and commercial spaces will occupy the lower levels of the building, bringing life and activity to the neighborhood. In a city where daily life shifts seamlessly between water and land, Marina Lofts augments both, contributing to the vibrant density and connected public space along the New River. Save this picture!Courtesy of BIGThe historical Rain Tree in the city, highly treasured by the local community is preserved and given a more prominent position by relocating and re-framing it as a centerpiece to a new Rain Tree park along the promenade.

See Ya Speed Bumps. T-Mobile Unleashes 5G with New Magenta MAX Plan

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) is un-leashing 5G like no one else. Introducing Magenta MAX, the first and only 5G smartphone plan built to show what a truly powerful 5G network can do for consumers. Magenta MAX delivers unlimited Premium Data — 4G and 5G — on your smartphone. That means you can’t be slowed down based on how much you use. Plus, Magenta MAX is made for video streaming with UHD (ultra-high definition) streaming up to 4K resolution and Netflix on Us on all MAX plans, now including single line customers. And Magenta MAX comes with the industry’s most generous smartphone mobile hotspot at 40GB of high-speed data included for consumers! Simply put, Magenta MAX sets a new bar in wireless, with the best benefits at a better price than other premium plans! Legacy smartphone plans are built for lower capacity 4G LTE networks, so Verizon, AT&T and even T-Mobile’s unlimited plans allow providers to lower your network priority if you’ve used a massive amount of data, which means that you might hit speed bumps if the network gets congested. Verizon and AT&T market this as “Premium Data” and give most customers 50GB. But, there’s nothing premium about paying more for fast 5G that’s only in “some parts of some cities.”* Now we’re in the 5G era, and T-Mobile has lit up the highest-capacity 5G network available — a network so powerful it can start unleashing the power of 5G to deliver unlimited Premium Data. Just to 5G flex, T-Mobile is also upgrading the core Magenta plan with double the Premium Data, from 50GB to 100GB, and nearly double the high-speed smartphone mobile hotspot data, from 3GB to 5GB. All for no additional cost. Existing Magenta and Magenta Plus customers can easily upgrade and keep current device or line promos, too! For the millions who just got a shiny new 5G smartphone … but are stuck on Carrier plans built for 4G, T-Mobile is launching a new Zero Cost to Switch deal. Bring that new 5G phone to T-Mobile, get up to $650 per line to pay it off and there are zero device switching costs. Keep your phone, switch without the switching costs AND unleash 5G on the nation’s largest and fastest 5G network. Win. Win. Win. “We just joined forces with Sprint, and we’re already America’s 5G coverage and speed leader. Magenta MAX is just a first taste of what our network capacity allows us to do!” said T-Mobile CEO Mike Sievert. “When you’re a heavy data user with a super-fast 5G smartphone, you don’t want to be hit with speed bumps. It’s like having a Ferrari and being forced to drive it in the school zone. Well, now it’s time to open ‘er up on the wide open magenta road! And we are just getting started. Buckle up!” “5G can deliver more data, faster, but consuming more, faster can quickly run afoul of rules found in plans built for 4G networks,” says Jason Leigh, Research Manager, 5G and Mobile Services Research at IDC. “Redesigning the traditional wireless service plan to take advantage of what 5G can do will create customer enthusiasm for a truly meaningful 5G experience.” Magenta MAX takes the place of Magenta Plus and launches February 24 for consumers and small businesses. Get unlimited talk, text and unlimited Premium Data — 4G and 5G — on your smartphone. So even if you use 200GB or more, you can’t be slowed down based on how much data you use. Plus, Magenta MAX is stacked with new and favorite Un-carrier extras:Netflix on Us – now for single lines and family plansunlimited UHD streaming at up to 4K UHD resolution40GB of high-speed smartphone mobile hotspot data (and unlimited 3G speeds after that) – the industry’s best for consumersfree thank you gifts and discounts on T-Mobile Tuesdaysunlimited Gogo in-flight texting and Wi-Fi all flight longfree texting and data in 210 countries and destinationsunlimited talk, text and data in Mexico and Canada with up to 5GB of high-speed datafree Scam Shield Premium protection, including free Scam Block and Caller ID All for the same price as Magenta Plus, just $57 per line per month for three lines with autopay and monthly taxes and fees included. But right now, get Magenta MAX for just $47 per line per month for three lines with autopay for a limited time. And Magenta MAX isn’t just the best plan at T-Mobile. It’s the best plan in wireless, loaded with features at a great price that saves hundreds compared to other premium plans. Right now, Verizon customers can save over $650 a year and AT&T customers can save over $475 a year — and even more because monthly taxes and fees aren’t included. Zero Cost to Switch Now it’s easier to say goodbye to Verizon and AT&T than ever before. T-Mobile’s new Zero Cost to Switch deal is designed for people who just upgraded to a super-fast 5G smartphone but are stuck on Carrier plans built for 4G and that limit their access to 5G. With Zero Cost to Switch, consumers and small businesses can … switch to the Un-carrier, AND keep their eligible phones and phone numbers, photos, contacts, favorite apps and more AND T-Mobile will pay it off (up to $650 per line on eligible phones via virtual prepaid card) AND T-Mobile will waive the costs associated with switching over their devices. But, if you don’t have a 5G smartphone yet and want to upgrade, you can get a new 5G phone on us via 24 monthly bill credits when you pick up your new phone on T-Mobile’s interest-free Equipment Installment Plan and trade in an eligible device. Largest & Fastest 5G Network T-Mobile is America’s 5G leader with the largest and fastest 5G network. T-Mobile’s Extended Range 5G covers 280 million people across 1.6 million square miles — that’s nearly 2.5x more coverage than AT&T and nearly 4x more than Verizon! With Sprint now part of T-Mobile, the Un-carrier is widening its lead, using dedicated spectrum to bring customers with capable devices download speeds of around 300 Mbps in many places and peak speeds up to 1 Gbps. T-Mobile’s Ultra Capacity 5G already reaches 2,400 cities and towns and covers over 50x more people than Verizon covers with Ultra Wideband. So, what do you do when you are the largest and fastest?

FL man placed camera inside woman’s home, spied on her family for a year: Police

first_imgHillsborough County Sheriff’s Office(TAMPA, Fla.) — Police arrested a 55-year-old man on Tuesday for allegedly placing a spy camera in a family’s home and watching them for at least a year, authorities said.Terry Sumner allegedly told deputies with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office in central Florida that he installed a camera into a wall outlet in the family’s living room that allowed him to spy on a friend and her family, according to the office. The case came to light on March 5 when a woman, who described Sumner as a family friend with access to her passwords, found the hidden camera and discovered that it was linked to her home’s Wi-Fi service. She eventually turned the device over to police, who linked it to Sumner.Sumner allegedly admitted to spying on the family through a hidden camera and a smartphone app, police said.Investigators executed a search warrant for Sumner’s home on Tuesday and found “numerous pictures of child pornography” in his mobile phone, the office said in a statement. The victims in the photos were under the age of 11 and they were known to Sumner, according to the statement.“He admitted to placing the spy camera in the victim’s home and to having the camera there for approximately one year,” the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. “Sumner explained that there was a smartphone application on his phone that he would use to watch, listen and record activity in the victim’s home through a live feed.”Sumner was arrested and charged with one count interception of wire, oral or electronic communications, 24 counts of possession child pornography, 24 counts of manufacturing child pornography, one count of lewd and lascivious molestation force or enticing, one count of lewd and lascivious exhibition and one count of capital sexual battery, court records show.He was being held on a $987,500 bond as of late Wednesday.

96 people charged in Texas marriage fraud scheme to get Green Cards

first_imgPattanaphong Khuankaew/iStock(HOUSTON) — Nearly 100 people in Texas have been indicted on federal marriage fraud charges, in a scheme allegedly aimed at securing U.S. Green Cards for Vietnamese nationals, according to officials.The alleged ringleader of the scheme, Houston resident Ashley Yen Nguyen, had associates operating throughout Texas and Vietnam, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said in a press release. The indictment, which names 96 people, was filed on April 30 in the Southern District of Texas, but it remains under seal.The suspected criminal organization allegedly created 150 sham marriages in the past six years, ABC Houston station KTRK-TV reported.“Marriage fraud is a serious crime,” USCIS Houston Director Tony Bryson said in the statement. “This indictment reveals how successful our working relationships are with our law enforcement and intelligence partners when it comes to investigating marriage fraud. USCIS remains steadfast in our commitment to ensuring national security, public safety and the integrity of the immigration system.”Each “beneficiary spouse” allegedly paid Nguyen between $50,000 to $70,000 to obtain full U.S. permanent resident status, according to the ICE statement. The agreements allegedly dictated that individuals would pay an additional amount for each benefit he or she received, such as admission into the U.S., conditional U.S. permanent resident status an, finally, full U.S. permanent resident status.The organizers allegedly went so far as to prepare fake wedding albums that included photographs, the statement said.The suspects also allegedly provided false tax, utility and employment information to USCIS, it said.Several individuals also allegedly acted as guides for those who traveled from Vietnam to petition for residency in the United States, according to ICE. The guides acted “under the guise” that they were meeting their fiances, but they were actually “beneficiary spouses paying the criminal organization to circumvent U.S. law,” the statement said.The couples involved in the fraudulent marriages did not live together and did not intend to do so, “contrary to the official documents and statements they submitted” to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service in Houston, the statement said.“The spouses only met briefly, usually immediately before they obtained their marriage license, or not at all,” the statement read.Attorney Trang Le Nguyen was also charged with preparing paperwork associated with at least one of the fraudulent marriages and allegedly instructed a witness who provided information to law enforcement to “go into hiding” and not travel by air, according to ICE. That attorney was charged with obstructing and impeding the due administration of justice and tampering with a witness. ABC News could not immediately reach an attorney for her.The indictment remains sealed for those who have been charged but are not yet in custody, according to ICE. It includes 47 counts of marriage fraud, 50 counts of mail fraud, 51 counts of immigration fraud and 51 counts of false statements under oath in a matter relating to the registry of undocumented immigrants, according to ICE’s statement.The charges — conspiracy to commit mail fraud, mail fraud and tampering with a witness, victim or informant — all carry possible 20-year federal prison sentences, the release said.On Monday, several family members of some of those indicted trickled in and out of court, according to KTRK-TV.Marc Carter, the attorney for the alleged ringleader, Nyugen, told KTRK-TV that his client was included in the indictment “because she’s helped people.”“The government in these detention hearings always try to make these salacious kind of statements and arguments,” Carter told KTRK. “They were also making a point to let the judge know she is a naturalized citizen that is somehow less than someone born here.”A federal judge ruled that Nyugen was a flight risk, and she is being held, as is her husband, according to KTRK-TV. Nyugen’s daughter was released after posting a bond, KTRK-TV reported.Carter did not immediately answer ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
