I’d buy British American shares to earn its 8% dividend yield in a Stocks and Shares ISA today

Posted on July 5, 2021Categories cryfsvynTags , , , , , , , , , , ,   Leave a comment on I’d buy British American shares to earn its 8% dividend yield in a Stocks and Shares ISA today

first_img Enter Your Email Address 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. Image source: Getty Images British American Tobacco (LSE: BAT) shares may have fallen by a third over two years, but this remains one of the best dividend stocks on the FTSE 100.The British American Tobacco share price rallied after the Covid crash in March, but has since resumed its downwards trajectory. It’s flat after today’s solid half-year report, which showed a 3.3% increase in profit from operations to £5.37bn. This was better than analysts expected. Revenues grew 1.1% to £12.27bn.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…Developed markets still deliver 75% of the company’s revenues, and were resilient during the pandemic. Management put this down to “stronger consumption trends, less negative impact of vaping on cigarettes, higher supply chain inventories and an extra selling day.”However, cigarette volumes continue to fall, down 6.5% in the first six months of 2020, to 310.5bn. British American Tobacco hopes vaping can fill the gap, and revenues jumped 40.8% to £265m. Non-combustibles now deliver 10% of the group’s total revenues.Meanwhile, the airline industry isn’t the only one hit by travel bans, grounding passengers also hit duty-free sales of cigarettes. British American Tobacco shares hold firmManagement still reckons revenues will grow between 1% and 3% this year, after previously lowering its target in June. It didn’t make any further changes to earnings guidance today, pleasing investors. This was a solid set of results, given current concerns. British American Tobacco shares are now trading at a bargain price, just 8.1 times forward earnings. Those earnings may have taken a slight knock during the pandemic, but nothing on the scale suffered by many FTSE 100 companies.Smoking is still in long-term decline. That could accelerate if we all decide to get healthier in the wake of the coronavirus. More than one million Britons have given up during the pandemic, according to charity Action on Smoking and Health. It will be interesting to see if that’s replicated elsewhere.This is a top FTSE 100 dividend stockBritish American Tobacco is fighting back by further boosting market share, which rose 50 basis points by volume, and 20bps by share. It boasts major brands including Kent, Dunhill, Lucky Strike, Pall Mall, Rothmans, Newport, and Camel.The £60bn FTSE 100 group still shifts a huge amount of units, and remains a highly cash-generative business. It’s able to run debts of around £44bn without spooking markets. Management calculates that adjusted net debt to adjusted EBITDA will be around 3x by the end of 2021. I’d like to see that come down, but it looks manageable.The real buzz here comes from the dividend. Management is committed to its 65% dividend payout ratio, which gives you a forecast yield of 8.1%. In today’s troubled dividend market, that’s stunning.British American Tobacco shares may not be going anywhere right now, but its dividends will take you a long way.

Foto de Carolyn Hockey[Episcopal News Service] Aproximadamente mil millones de personas ven el mundo de una manera diferente. Según estadísticas de las Naciones Unidas, el 17 por ciento de la población mundial, mayores de 15 años, cargan con el analfabetismo, y no  podrían leer este artículo [en ninguna lengua].Para los líderes y voluntarios de Reading Camp [Campamento de Lectura], un ministerio de la  Diócesis Episcopal de Lexington que se ha convertido en un empeño mundial, el analfabetismo – definido por la ONU como la incapacidad de leer y escribir un mensaje sencillo en cualquier idioma— no es una opción. Educar y capacitar a la próxima generación, inculcándole confianza en sí misma y creando nuevas oportunidades se encuentran entre los principales objetivos del programa.El Rdo. Joseph Ngijoe y su esposa Clemence, de la Iglesia Anglicana en Camerún, tenían el sueño de crear una alianza internacional para ayudar a los niños que luchan por leer y escribir en ese país de África Occidental, donde 1 de cada 4 personas, de una población de 20 millones, es analfabeta.Unas amistades que se forjaron en 2009 —mientras estudiaban en la Escuela de Teología Eclesiástica del Pacífico en Berkeley, California— allanaron el camino para que el sueño de los Ngijoe se convirtiera en realidad. El Campamento de Lectura Camerún [Reading Camp Cameroon] se fundó a mediados de junio de este año con un programa experimental de una semana en Tiko, y reunió a embajadores de la Iglesia Episcopal provenientes de Estados Unidos con un equipo de maestros cameruneses, todos voluntarios.Clemence Ngijoe describió el programa como una herramienta creativa y vital para romper el círculo de la pobreza y de la ignorancia.“Sabemos que la ignorancia constituye un bloqueo para el desarrollo social y que la lectura es la base del conocimiento. Una persona que no sabe leer es como una persona ciega y está limitada en todos los aspectos de la vida”, le dijo ella al Servicio de Prensa Episcopal (ENS). “La lectura propaga amor, cuidado y bendiciones en la familia, en la escuela, en la comunidad y en el mundo. Es un ministerio del amor de Dios, de la compasión y del autodescubrimiento”.Reading Camp, apuntó Ngijoe, también es parte integrante del cumplimiento del segundo de los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio de lograr la educación primaria universal.“Un niño bien educado contribuirá inmensamente con la sociedad”, dijo ella. “Reading Camp ayuda a los niños no sólo a aprender, sino también a desarrollar confianza en sí mismos”.Alrededor de 45 niños, de 8 a 11 años de edad, llegan para otra jornada en el Campamento de Lectura Camerún . Foto de Petero SabuneLos tres embajadores laicos, procedentes de las diócesis de Atlanta, Lexington y Ohio, se unieron a los Ngijoe y a más de 20 maestros locales para impartir el programa a unos 45 campistas en Camerún, la mayoría con edades entre los 8 y los 11 años.Joanne Ratliff, profesora titular en lengua y alfabetización de la Universidad de Georgia, la definió como una de las experiencias más espirituales de su vida.Ella dijo que los maestros y los niños que participaron en el campamento “fueron una bendición para mí a nivel profesional y personal… Los niños me alegraron el alma al demostrarme su deseo de aprender. Todos vinieron con un corazón abierto y una mente abierta”.En contraste con Estados Unidos, muchas escuelas camerunesas tienen “hasta el cuádruple de alumnos en aulas con bancos de madera, un pizarrón y tiza, y poco más”, explicó Ratliff. “El edificio de la escuela donde trabajamos lo definieron como una escuela buena, pero probablemente habría sido condenada en EE.UU.”.Veintiún maestros se presentaron todos los días sin paga durante sus vacaciones escolares, dijo Ratliff. “Trabajaban con los niños toda la mañana y luego venían y trabajaban conmigo durante otra hora. Nunca escuché una sola queja. De hecho, su gratitud resultaba abrumadora”.Beauty se aparecía todos los días con su libro bajo el brazo. Ella quería leer, pero era demasiado pequeña para incorporarse al programa de este año. Tal vez el año próximo. Foto de Petero SabuneCarolyn Hockey, de 19 años y procedente de Cleveland, en la Diócesis de Ohio, dijo que el Campamento de Lectura Camerún resultó tan exitoso que otros niños del barrió “intentaron colarse en el campamento, al ver lo mucho que todos se divertían y lo mucho que estaban aprendiendo”.Hockey pasó cinco años como voluntaria y consejera en campamentos en Lexington, y ayudó a inaugurar el primer Reading Camp en la Diócesis de Ohio, en su parroquia de la iglesia episcopal de San Pablo [St. Paul’s] en Cleveland Heights. Dijo, además, que se sentía “más conectada con Dios cuando estaba en el Campamento de Lectura.“No es sólo un programa de alfabetización. Se trata de desarrollar la confianza en sí mismos que los más jóvenes necesitan, en particular los que están esforzándose con la lectura. Adquirir confianza para intentarlo es la mitad del esfuerzo de leer para muchísimos niños”, dijo Hockey, que está pasando el verano en Camerún antes de comenzar a estudiar ciencias políticas y religión en el colegio universitario de Wooster [College of Wooster] en Ohio.“Otra cosa bella del Reading Camp es que enriquece las vidas de todos los que participan”, agregó.Allissa Ferguson, de 25 años se mostró de acuerdo. “Participar en el Campamento de Lectura me da esperanzas”, afirmó. “He visto la transformación que se opera en los niños y eso me recuerda que Dios sí se mueve en el mundo. Yo también he sentido la transformación en mi propia vida. Al principio no me daba cuenta de su importancia, pero ahora, después de varios años, veo que el Campamento de Lectura es como ‘una experiencia cumbre’, como esas que se mencionan en la Biblia”.Oriunda de Nashville, Tennessee, Ferguson comenzó a trabajar de voluntaria para Reading Camp cuando aún estudiaba en la Universidad de Kentucky, en la Diócesis de Lexington. Participó en el ministerio de campamento de la Universidad, y se unió a la Iglesia Episcopal siendo estudiante de primer año.Ferguson dijo que la experiencia “crea un espacio para el Espíritu Santo y me prepara para mantenerme optimista aunque me sienta frustrada. Los niños mismos son una enorme inspiración para mí. Su difícil labor me demuestra que lo que hacemos realmente funciona y que todo es posible”.Uno de los 45 niños, de 8 a 11 años de edad, que asistieron al Campamento de Lectura Camerún. Foto de Carolyn HockeyReading Camp, agregó Ferguson, representa también un nuevo comienzo. “No sólo enseñamos lectura; creamos un espacio seguro y amoroso para que [los niños] se desarrollen y luego les damos los instrumentos para hacerlo. Se trata de una transformación que pueden llevar con ellos por el resto de sus vidas”.Hockey describió a los maestros cameruneses y a los voluntarios del campamento como soñadores, resaltando que ya están hablando de expandir el campamento para incluir cinco diferentes semanas el año próximo.“Si alguien puede hacerlo son ellos. Están tan motivados”, subrayó Hockey.El Rdo. Petero Sabune, funcionario encargado de los compañerismos de la Iglesia Episcopal en África, visitó Camerún para ver el programa Reading Camp en acción.“Ver, oír y experimentar la alegría del equipo en Camerún fue pasmoso. Es casi un milagro”, afirmó. “Ver a los niños que vienen y a los adultos que los reciben para [enseñarles a] leer era lo que todos esperábamos diariamente. Leer y que le lean [a uno] es algo celestial. Me imagino que el cielo es donde uno tiene todos los libros y todo el tiempo”.El trayecto que condujo al Campamento de Lectura Camerún comenzó en 2002 cuando Stacy Sauls, el anterior obispo de Lexington y ahora jefe de operaciones de la Iglesia Episcopal, “concibió un programa que reuniera los recursos de la diócesis… para abordar algunos de los problemas más apremiantes de la región: analfabetismo, pobreza, [así como] el malestar y la desesperanza generales que los acompañan”, dijo a ENS Allison Duvall, directora ejecutiva de Reading Camp.Según un estudio federal publicado en 2009, se calcula que unos 32 millones de adultos —uno de cada siete— en Estados Unidos tienen tan pocas habilidades de lectoescritura que serían incapaces de entender las instrucciones de un frasco de pastillas.Fijar un nivel “básico inferior” de alfabetización en el tercer y cuarto grados puede ayudar a frenar o a revertir esas cifras.Duvall explicó que los voluntarios de Reading Camp se comunican con los sistemas escolares, les piden a los maestros que elijan a estudiantes conflictivos que estén por lo menos un grado por debajo de su nivel de lectura para que asistan al programa.Ella dijo que, durante el campamento, cada niño recibe más de 15 horas de instrucción de lectoescritura remedial personalizada en pequeños grupos o de uno en uno con maestros o voluntarios preparados.Además de reafirmar sus capacidades de lectura, los niños “disfrutan por las tardes de actividades que están estructuradas para crearles confianza, conciencia de sí mismos y para desarrollarles caracteres fuertes, mientras incorporan estrategias para la vida cotidiana y aprendizaje interdisciplinario”, añadió Duvall. “Los campistas aprenden a nadar, a montar a caballo, a descender por la pared de un risco —y estos éxitos transforman su enfoque de aprender a leer”.Para 2008, Reading Camp se había establecido en ocho sitios diferentes de la Diócesis de Lexington, así como en Iowa, Ohio, Virginia y Sudáfrica.El programa de Sudáfrica, que se inauguró en Grahamstown en 2007 se mantiene pujante cinco años más tarde y los líderes locales hablan de extender Reading Camp  a las otras diócesis de la Iglesia Anglicana en África del Sur.Uno de los problemas más apremiantes, dijo Duvall, ha sido crear un modelo de desarrollo sostenible, “que ayudaría a otros a iniciar sus propios campamentos de lectura sin menoscabo de la financiación o la calidad de los programas de la Diócesis de Lexington”.En respuesta se creó la Red del Campamento de Lectura [Reading Camp Network] para apoyar la expansión y desarrollo del ministerio a través de Estados Unidos y en el resto del mundo, abundó Duvall.Las iglesias y organizaciones que desean iniciar un programa de alfabetización basado en el modelo de Reading Camp pueden unirse ahora a la red y tener acceso a los materiales de capacitación.Ya tenga lugar en Lexington, Cleveland, Sudáfrica o Camerún, los voluntarios de Reading Camp describen la experiencia como transformadora para todos los participantes, niños y voluntarios por igual.Abbey Clough, una joven adulta voluntaria en el campamento de lectura de Pine Mountain que funcionó a fines de julio en Kentucky, dijo que había sido un vehículo para su propio “discernimiento vocacional”… derribó algunas barreras emocionales que yo había levantado”.Agregó que los niños habían abierto su corazón y que los voluntarios habían llegado a ser como hermanos y hermanas.Clough, de 19 años y miembro de la iglesia episcopal de San Pablo [St. Paul’s], en Cleveland Heights, se refirió a dos ex campistas que ahora son voluntarios de un campamento de lectura como consejeros juveniles. “No eran capaces de repetir el alfabeto o de escribir sus nombres hace cuatro años”, contó ella. “Ahora son consejeros juveniles que ya no viven con barreras emocionales. Eran tan herméticos cuando vinieron aquí por primera vez. Ahora cuidan a los otros niños. [Eso] es un ejemplo concreto… del efecto que el Reading Camp tiene en las personas… Esos dos han enternecido los corazones de los que hemos estado aquí durante los últimos cuatro años. Hemos puesto tanto empeño en ellos”.Clough es una de los muchos jóvenes adultos que brindan su tiempo como consejeros en un campamento de lectura cada año, con frecuencia costeando sus propios gastos para incorporarse a uno de los programas.El Rdo. Chris Arnold, rector de la iglesia de Santa María [St. Mary’s] en Middlesboro, Diócesis de Lexington, y en su primer año como voluntario en el campamento de lectura de Pine Mountain, dijo que una y otra vez, “la Escritura muestra a Dios abriéndole los ojos a la gente a mejores posibilidades, futuros más brillantes, la tierra prometida y el Reino. El campamento de lectura revela el método de Dios de ayudar a las personas a descubrir nuevas posibilidades y disfrutes inéditos”.Entre tanto, Clemence Ngijoe, de Camerún, se siente agradecida de que el campamento se haya desarrollado a partir de su éxito en Estados Unidos para ampliar el programa en todo el mundo. Ella dijo que valora profundamente las amistades que se han forjado “dentro de nuestras comunidades y lejos” a través del programa.“Ahora formamos una familia internacional muy grande”, agregó. “Esto nos ha enseñado una vez más acerca de la noción de Ubuntu (un concepto africano que significa ‘soy lo que soy debido a quienes somos todos’) y la unidad pese a nuestras diferencias culturales o geográficas”.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero del Servicio de Prensa Episcopal.

The FIRST modernist LEED Platinum residence in the Southeastern United States Save this picture!Courtesy of robert m. cainThe RainShine house is a two-story, 2800-square foot, three-bedroom, 31/2-bath home located in Decatur,Georgia on a 1/3-acre infill lot. Homes in the surrounding single-family neighborhood are of mixed vintage andstyle ranging from the late 1920’s to present, Tudor cottage to post war saltbox to ranch. Located 1 1/2 blocksfrom downtown Decatur, RainShine is in a very walkable neighborhood convenient to shopping, greatrestaurants, excellent transit options, many other community resources and a remarkable diversity of culturalopportunities.Save this picture!Courtesy of robert m. cainThe project site was specifically selected to allow the owners to pursue their preferred lifestyle of walking,biking and using mass transit in their day-to-day lives. For them, minimizing their dependency on personalautomobiles will result in fewer car trips and thus contribute to less pollution, congestion, less use of importedoil, and a healthier, more community-oriented lifestyle. RainShine, however, does occupy a challenging 1/3-acre site. Save this picture!Courtesy of robert m. cainAlthough the property is within sight of the subcontinental divide, buildable area is constrained by aman made flood plain (resulting from poor municipal culvert design and a huge nearby asphalt church parkinglot with inadequate runoff controls), stream buffer requirements and a sewer easement transversing the site aswell as the usual residential zoning setbacks. These factors result in a trapezoidal shaped 3,778 square foot areaavailable for building. The house, porches and decks are thus tightly defined within these limitations but takeadvantage by orienting to the open space afforded through the easement and buffer. Save this picture!Courtesy of robert m. cainRainShine is named for key design features. The living room, dining, kitchen and guest bedrooms are shelteredby a butterfly roof structured with steel beams spanned by exposed 1 1/2” tongue-and-groove wood decking. Theroof floats above continuous clerestories allowing light to flood into the interior. Light shelves around theclerestory sills bounce and diffuse natural light throughout the interior. The butterfly roof is designed to capturerainfall (Rain) for a rainharvest system located in the basement and is oriented to maximize southern exposurefor a roof mounted photovoltaic system (Shine). The butterfly design, with its inverted gable, simplifiesrainwater collection, eliminates extensive gutter and downspout systems and associated maintenance headaches. Save this picture!Courtesy of robert m. cainOccupying the front of the lot is the entrance foyer and a two-story living room overlooked by a study and twoguest bedrooms. Dining room and kitchen flow in an open manner to the living room. The single-level mastersuite extends to the more private rear of the lot and shares a large, covered south-facing deck with the livingarea. A screened porch cantilevers off the living room, engages the street and in conjunction with the livingroom serve to screen the private rear portion of the site. Since automotive accommodations are not a majorconsideration in the owner’s lives, no garage was required. Save this picture!Courtesy of robert m. cainSustainability goals were paramount and achieved through energy efficient systems such as natural ventilation,geothermal heat pumps, LED lighting and energy recovery ventilation. Additional features: passive solar designfeatures and devices, high efficiency appliances, extensive use of environmentally preferable/highdurability/salvaged/recycled/reclaimed materials, no VOC paints and sealants, no irrigation, drought tolerantnative species landscaping and (through incorporation of rain garden and rainharvest systems) post projectrunoff equivalent to a woodland state.Save this picture!Courtesy of robert m. cainProject gallerySee allShow lessStrategy and Tactics / a+tArticlesCTBUH Debuts their Skyscraper Resource SiteArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/211077/the-rainshine-house-robert-m-cain Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Decatur, United Statescenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/211077/the-rainshine-house-robert-m-cain Clipboard Projects The RainShine House / Robert M.
