Carlton & United is seen as Foster’s prize asset and generates around 85 per cent of the group’s earnings. It boasts a juicy profit margin of 38.5 per cent.Foster’s sparked talk of a bidding war in May when it said it would split off its beer operation from its troubled wine unit. The separation, expected in the first half of next year, would provide an opportunity for SABMiller to pounce.SABMiller chief executive Graham Mackay has made no secret of his desire to consolidate the brewing industry. When he moved the company’s main listing from Johannesburg to London in 1999, Mackay said: “There will be a lot of deals in this industry and we either have to take part or be a spectator.”Since then he has proven true to his word, transforming SABMiller into the world’s second-largest brewer by buying Pilsner Urquell, Peroni of Italy, Miller of the US, Colombia’s Bavaria and Holland’s Grolsch.Buying Carlton & United would give it control of Australia’s most popular beer, Victoria Bitter, as well as a platform from which to expand in south east Asia. SABMiller would be able to challenge Anheuser-Busch InBev for global pole position.SABMiller recently made Morgan Stanley joint house broker, although the move is not related to a deal. last_img read more

Global dividends could crash 30%+ in 2020! Why FTSE 100 investors need to be VERY careful

first_img Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Barclays, HSBC Holdings, and Lloyds Banking Group. 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. See all posts by Royston Wild Global dividends could crash 30%+ in 2020! Why FTSE 100 investors need to be VERY careful Income investing has become a minefield in recent weeks. Crashing corporate earnings and an uncertain outlook for the global economy in 2020 (and beyond) mean that dividends continue to fall across the FTSE 100 and elsewhere.The extent of the problem is reflected in a fresh Janus Henderson report released on Monday. In its latest Global Dividend Index, the asset manager predicts that total rewards could slump by as much as 35% (to $1.21trn) year-on-year in 2020. Even its rosiest estimates suggest that the worldwide total could drop 15% from 2019 levels, to $933bn.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…In better news, Janus Henderson says that it expects dividends “to recover some of the lost ground in 2021.” But of course, payments will be coming from the lower base created this year. The pandemic will clearly take a heavy toll on investors’ income flows in the near term and after.Bank dividends to bomb?Janus Henderson predicts that British companies will be some of the biggest dividend slashers on the planet too. It says that “the UK has a number of sectors whose dividend outlook is impacted by the pandemic.” It comments that “UK dividends are heavily reliant on a few very large companies, so the risk is very concentrated here”.Take the banks as an example. On the one hand Janus Henderson notes that “banks in most major economies are in a stronger position this time around, and regulatory oversight is more robust,” compared to the last banking crisis. And banking dividends should therefore recover more quickly than they did during the 2008/09 crisis.But recent Bank of England advice means that dividends from UK banks are on shaky ground. Janus Henderson notes that Threadneedle Street has requested that banks not pay dividends in 2020. It’s a development that will have huge ramifications for total dividends generated from these shores. FTSE 100 bank HSBC was the 10th best-paying share in the world in 2019, according to the asset manager. Lloyds and Barclays have also been generous dividend stocks in recent times, of course.More danger… and what I’d do nowInvestors don’t just need to fear falling bank dividends, however. Threadneedle Street has asked insurance companies to keep a lid on shareholder payouts too, Janus Henderson notes. It adds that mining companies are highly-tuned to a sharp slowdown in the global economy. Footsie-quoted Glencore has already cut the dividend.Janus Henderson also suggests that oil may finally reset payout policies in a landscape of lower energy prices. It notes that BP has held its payout, but that Royal Dutch Shell has scythed its own dividend down by almost two-thirds. According to its figures, Shell was the number one dividend payer on the planet in 2019.So should we all stop buying shares? Not at all! It’s clear that investors need to be more careful than usual when picking stocks to fund their income flows. It doesn’t mean, in my opinion, that they need to stop investing entirely. There are still plenty of stocks out there that could pay big dividends this year and beyond. And following bouts of fresh selling, there are many I would consider too cheap to miss right now.

Ireland 21-23 Wales

first_imgIn quotesWales coach Warren Gatland: “We’ve been a bit unlucky in the past, losing games in the last few minutes. Here we were reasonably lucky. We didn’t play as well as we can; I think we only showed 70% of what we’re capable of doing – when we get it right…”Ireland coach Declan Kidney: “It is extremely disappointing. We had a lead early in the second half but we did not build on it. When we do press ahead we have to go for the jugular. We are going to have to look at being more ruthless.” NOT FOR FEATURED North star: George celebratesStar man – George NorthWales’ young wing yet again proved what a talent he is. He may still be a teenager but his 6ft-plus physique makes him difficult to stop, as he demonstrated when scoring Wales’ third try by driving through two defenders. He also showed great skills with his feet and hands – a one-handed, back-handed offload setting up Jonathan Davies for his second try. Looking forward to seeing more of North for years to come – I could watch this guy all day.Room for improvementWales must look at their lineout – Ireland were able to steal four throws – and they might want to look at Leigh Halfpenny kicking for goal from the off after Rhys Priestland’s misses cost them seven points. Leave Priestland to concentrate on running the attack.Ireland desperately missed Brian O’Driscoll with Gordon D’Arcy and Fergus McFadden failing to make much impact in attack. This, in turn, meant Ireland’s back three didn’t get much quality ball. They must find a Plan B, too, for when their back row isn’t able to make its usual inroads.Both sides need to look at their discipline – giving away needless penalties as well as yellow cards – and must be more purposeful with their kicking game. A few kicks here were too easy for the opposition to deal with and the chases wasn’t up to scratch either. Tommy boy: Bowe scores in the cornerTop statsWales completed 201 passes compared to Ireland’s 153 and passed from rucks 90 times (Ireland did that 58 times) – showing their keenness to keep the ball in hand and build phases.Ireland made twice as many offloads out of the tackle as Wales – six to three – and made 127 tackles compared to Wales’ 94.Watch match highlightsIRELAND: Rob Kearney; Tommy Bowe, Fergus McFadden, Gordon D’Arcy, Andrew Trimble; Jonathan Sexton (Ronan O’Gara 77), Conor Murray (Eoin Reddan 77); Cian Healy (Tom Court 74), Rory Best, Mike Ross, Donncha O’Callaghan (Donnacha Ryan 63), Paul O’Connell (captain), Stephen Ferris, Sean O’Brien, Jamie Heaslip. Try: Best, Bowe. Con: Sexton. Pen: Sexton 3.

Try: J Davies 2, North. Con: Halfpenny. Pen: Halfpenny 2.Referee: Wayne Barnes (England) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Second’s up: Jonathan Davies crosses for his second try in Wales’ win over Ireland in DublinBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorIn a nutshellUndoubtedly the game of the Six Nations to date – though that doesn’t do this match justice after what Scotland and England offered up yesterday! A fiercely contested game with both Ireland and Wales showing huge intent to play rugby, keeping ball in hand and working the phases. The lead changed hands six times but it was Wales who demonstrated the classier attacking moves, Rhys Priestland bringing his back-line onto the ball at pace and mixing up the point of attack as his team ran in three tries. The two Irish tries came from patient phase play that stretched the Welsh defence and allowed Ireland to find space out wide. Bradley Davies was sin-binned for a dangerous tip tackle on Donnacha Ryan and is likely to be cited, but it was a similar offence by Stephen Ferris that gave Leigh Halfpenny the chance to kick the winning three points, which he duly did.Key momentIn the 80th minute, after both sides had scored tries with Bradley Davies in the sin-bin, Wales demonstrated patience as they worked the ball from their own 22 into Ireland’s half and referee Wayne Barnes awarded a hugely significant penalty as Stephen Ferris upended Ian Evans and was yellow-carded. Leigh Halfpenny, cool as the proverbial cucumber, stepped up to nail the kick and hand Wales victory.last_img read more

Payroll giving rises by 23% in two years

first_img A new survey by Charities Aid Foundation (CAF) reveals that the number of people giving to charity through Give As You Earn, CAF’s payroll giving scheme, has risen by 23% since April 2000. Give As You Earn, the UK’s largest scheme for tax-free payroll giving, also saw donations top £50 million for 2001/2002.The survey looked at the impact on Give As You Earn of radical changes made by Government to payroll giving in April 2000. These changes included removal of the £100 monthly ceiling and the addition of a 10% bonus from the Government to all payroll donations until April 2003. According to the survey, nearly half of the highest level donors through Give As You Earn have joined the scheme since these changes were introduced, boosting the average annual donation among this group by 71% to £2,396.

Nearly two thirds of these had switched from other forms of tax-effective giving, and almost a quarter of those previously donating up to the £100 monthly limit, haveincreased their contributions further still. These findings are useful ammunition for those hoping that the 10% top-up will be continued. CAF has added its name to those calling for the extension. Jenny Byers, CAF’s Executive Director Donor Services, said: “We’ve seen a steady rise in both the number of Give As You Earn donors and the value of their giving since its launch in 1987. But the dramatic growth brought about by the April 2000 changes can’t be ignored. CAF is already working alongside other, leading voluntary sector bodies, to ensure that we build on this success and finally begin to realise the incredible potentialof payroll giving.”CAF is working both independently, and alongside the Association of Payroll Giving Agencies to lobby for an extension of the 10% bonus.

Now, 17% of people in the UK say that they have included a gift in their will, up from 14% in 2013 (source: nfpSynergy 2014, Annual Benchmarking Survey, Remember A Charity).Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, said:“Remember A Charity’s awareness week has grown year-on-year and we hope 2015 sees our message continue to reach new audiences and, ultimately, lead to legacy growth. We are urging more charities to take part in the campaign this year and boost awareness amongst their supporters and beyond.“There remains a significant gap between the number of people that support charities regularly and those that remember a charity in their will. Working collectively to communicate the importance and opportunities of legacies is the key that will close that gap and make legacy giving a social norm. “ This year’s campaign will build on the success of the 2014 campaign with its theme of Living Legends. This featured a 94 year old Wing Walker, an Ironwoman Triathlete aged 72 and an 80 year old High Diver star, all inviting anyone to a living legend by including a charity they care about in their Will.Last year’s campaign was promoted by over 150 member charities, and received backing from The Co-operative, the Cabinet Office, Legal & General and the Law Society.During Remember A Charity Week 2014, the number of solicitors and will writers supporting the campaign increased by over 50%, with over 250 professional adviser firms signing up to promote legacy giving to their clients.

Those charities will be promoted via the campaign website’s homepage and receive promotional materials and a campaign toolkit, equipping them for promoting legacies effectively to their key stakeholders and supporters.Michael Clark, Legacy and In-memory Manager at the Cystic Fibrosis Trust, took part in the 2014 campaign week. He said:“Remember A Charity in your Will Week allowed us to focus on the importance of gifts in wills for the Trust’s ambitious future goals, and our campaign led to 212 new legacy enquiries. As we strive to beat Cystic Fibrosis for good, the Remember a Charity consortium is a vital part of our legacy strategy to ensure that our generous supporters understand the difference they can make.”Living Legends[youtube height=”HEIGHT” width=”WIDTH”][/youtube]  47 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2center_img Advertisement Living Legends return for Remember A Charity in your Will Week 2015 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Howard Lake | 20 July 2015 | Newslast_img read more

If you know you’re going to drink–whether with friends at a pub or attending a party — designate a sober driver ahead of time or call a taxi to make sure you get home safely,” said Chief Sanchez. “There’s never an excuse for driving after drinking.” According to NHTSA, in 2011, one person was killed on an average of every 53 minutes in a drunk-driving crash in the United States. Most of these crashes involved drunk drivers who had blood alcohol concentrations of .15 or higher, almost twice the legal limit of .08. To prevent these tragedies from occurring, Chief Sanchez recommends the following steps to have a safe and happy St. Patrick’s Day: Before the festivities begin, plan a way to safely get home at the end of the night. Before drinking, designate a sober driver and leave your car keys at home. If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation to get home safely. If available, use your community’s sober ride program. If you see a drunk driver on the road, Report Them! Call 9-1-1! You could save a life. And remember, if you know people who are about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely.• Before the festivities begin, plan a way to safely get home at the end of the night.• Before drinking, designate a sober driver and leave your car keys at home.• If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use publictransportation to get home safely.• If available, use your community’s sober ride program.• If you see a drunk driver on the road, Report Them!
