Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Views expressed 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. It never seems a bad idea to me to buy dividend stocks. If I pick the right UK shares, they can help me build an additional income stream with limited effort and for a long time. After last year’s dividend drought, they have come back thick and fast. There are now plenty of options for an investor to choose from. But not all dividend stocks are made equal, especially not for the long-term investor. So here are four points I consider before buying stocks to earn a passive 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…#1. Financial healthFirst, the company in question has to be financially healthy. If it is running up a loss, for instance, I would think twice before buying it for dividends. This is because such dividends will be unsustainable if the company does not earn an income. On the other hand, if it has consistently been profitable, I would think there is a higher chance of keeping dividends going. Note that I am happy with profits, and do not always consider profits growth, because the actual number can vary for a variety of one-off reasons, like Covid-19-related expenses this year. If it has a history of being consistently profitable, that is a good indicator for me to start looking deeper into the stock. #2. Long-term dividend prospectsIt is also essential for me to consider how the company will sustain itself over the long term. Tobacco and big oil, for instance, are established industries that now face an uncertain future. One is harmful to health and the other is harmful to the environment, which is leading to increased investor discontent related to these segments. This explains some of their share price weakness already. While both sectors offer good dividends for now, if I wanted to buy and hold dividend stocks for say, the next 20 years, I would research them more closely. #3. Past trendsPast trends can often be an indicator of a company’s future actions. So if it has had a consistent policy of paying dividends for a long time, that is unlikely to change in a hurry. Similarly, if a company has just started paying dividends, I have no real reason to believe that it will in the future as well, unless it says so explicitly. And even then, the dividends will depend on its performance and outlook. #4. Dividend yieldLast, but certainly not least, is the dividend yield. I think of yield as similar to the interest paid to me on my savings account. Just as I would put my money in a savings account with a higher interest rate, I would also like to buy stocks that offer me a higher yield. Of course, here I have to be careful that I am not looking at just the dividend yield but that the other three aspects also fall in place.

Fundraisers should embrace email as a way of reaching this age group with highly-tailored content that is relevant to them and will encourage them to interact with your organisation. Similarly, Silver-surfers are more inclined to want to be part of a wider community as they have more leisure time for this kind of interaction. Make sure that your organisation’s website can be a platform for like-minded individuals to come together and share their experiences as part of an online community. The personal touchIt is essential that donors receive information that is relevant and personal to them as an individual. Encourage your audience to register on the website so you can capture information about them and tailor your messages accordingly. People are most likely to register when they know that their personal information will be used appropriately so make it clear what the information will be used for, what the benefits of registration are and make the registration process as pain-free as possible.Keep it simpleIt’s easy to get seduced by a web designer but there is no sense in spending copious amounts of money employing one to create a fancy site without the right IT infrastructure in place to support it. Instead, look for a software provider who can provide a modular structure that can cater for different audience requirements and future expansion at a low-cost. A modular structure is a simple way of ensuring that your website is easy to use and donors can get to the information that matters to them. By ensuring that your website is simple to use, the older generation are much more likely to remain engaged rather than giving up because they can’t find the information they need. By creating a website that is easy to navigate, personalised for each donor’s preferences and where people can easily interact, fundraising organisations will be in a much stronger position to attract and retain today’s silver surfer generation.

To celebrate Silver Surfers’ Day today, Niroo Rad, managing director of ASI Europe, is calling on fundraisers to make their websites user-friendly for the older generation.As more silver surfers move online, it is vital that fundraisers ensure that they are considering the older generation to avoid missing out on regular donations, particularly given that pensioners traditionally give the most to charity, according to Mintel in February 2006.Here are three keys for silver-surfer success: Advertisement Tagged with: Digital About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

As formal budget negotiations got underway Wednesday – lawmakers pledged to work across party lines to fund federal agencies, avoid another government shutdown and adopt lasting changes to rein in the rising national debt. Democrats expressed a willingness to swap sequester cuts for permanent structural changes to federal health programs sought by Republicans. In fact – Senate Budget Committee Chair Patty Murray said she’s ready to make some tough concessions to get a deal. But she noted compromise goes both ways. According to Murray – Republicans need to work with Democrats to close some wasteful tax loopholes and special interest subsidies.

Ryan said the tax code is full of carve-outs and kickbacks that need to be eliminated. He said bipartisan talks over tax reform are the way to do it. Ryan said the budget talks should be limited to cutting spending in a smarter way. If the conference negotiations become an argument about taxes – he said conferees won’t get anywhere.
Home Indiana Agriculture News RFS Discussions Coast-to-Coast 1 of 2 By Andy Eubank – Feb 28, 2018 SHARE Facebook Twitter RFS Discussions Coast-to-Coast Facebook Twitter While the future of the Renewable Fuels Standard is discussed at length during Commodity Classic in California, the RFS is also in the middle of a very busy week at the White House. Iowa Republicans Charles Grassley and Joni Ernst joined Ted Cruz of Texas and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania presenting opposing points of view to Cabinet members. USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue confirmed in Anaheim that no deal was made.“There’s a lot of rumor about decisions being made. Senator Cruz and Senator Toomey made their case to the President about job degradation in the independent refiners. That’s something, obviously, the President has to listen to. If it bears out that higher RIN prices are contributing, we’re talking about independent, not the big oil guys. They’re doing fine because they’re generating the RINs.”RINs are renewable identification numbers. Perdue said the President has a responsibility to listen to both sides and continues to do so this week, having invited the National Corn Growers Association to a meeting Thursday.“He’s invited the biofuels community, primarily the corn growers. Senator Grassley and Senator Ernst could invite those to the White House tomorrow. That’s an unusual step to have the President of the United States say, ‘Come in. Let’s talk about this. Let’s figure out solutions to this issue. I’m strong for the farmers, I have committed to that. I’m not going to back up from that but as a President, I’ve got a responsibility to listen to all aspects of American economy.’ That’s what he’s doing.”Perdue says he remains committed to the RFS and growing the biofuels industry, and his support is unequivocal.“I will not support any policies that reduce the demand for ethanol and biofuels less than where we have it currently. My goal is to grow it by eliminating the waiver on RVP where we can build up a culture of 15 percent ethanol for the future.”Many conversations still to come on RFS, so stay tuned. SHARE USDA Sec.
