In the first half it generated £1.1bn, £460m of which was repatriated to the UK and £318m of which was paid out.Referring to a potential upgrading of the dividend, finance director Nic Nicandrou said: “It’s something where we’ll get a decision as we come to that point. We think being consistent is very important.” whatsapp Thursday 12 August 2010 8:27 pmlast_img read more

first_imgGold doesn’t pay interest! I’d buy these 2 FTSE 350 dividend stocks for a rising income Image source: Getty Images People are piling into gold right now, with BullionVault reporting that one UK investor used their smartphone to buy almost £1m of the precious metal in a single trade, via its mobile app. I would urge caution though.The gold price recently hit a seven-year high of $1,700 an ounce, but has fallen since then. The precious metal always shoots up in times of trouble, but can fall back just as quickly, once the immediate danger passes. If markets feel confident that the coronavirus has been contained, the gold price could swiftly fall even further.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…Personally, I wouldn’t hold more than 5% of my portfolio in gold, which pays zero interest or dividends, with price growth entirely dependent on investor sentiment.Balfour BeattyI would invest most of my money in a balanced portfolio of top UK companies, using the tax-efficient Stocks and Shares ISA allowance. Right now, I am tempted by the Balfour Beatty (LSE: BBY) share price, which is up a massive 16% today after it reported an 8% increase in group underlying profit from operations to £221m in its full-year results.The FTSE 250 construction group also reported a 52% increase in year-end net cash to £512m, a 13% increase in its order book to £14.3bn. It is still in recovery mode after issuing a series of profit warnings, and surviving a takeover bid by Carillion in 2014, which was a lucky escape.Management has been working on cutting costs and narrowing its focus on profitable, workable projects, mostly in the UK and US. Today, it rewarded loyal investors by hiking its dividend 33% to 6.4pGroup CEO Leo Quinn hailed its efforts in creating a scalable business with an increasing order book, that should drive “profitable managed growth and cash generation on a sustainable basis”. The group is paying down around £150m of borrowings in 2020. Balfour Beatty should also profit from HS2.The share price is stabilised but you can still buy it at just 9.1 times forward earnings, and get a forecast yield of 3.4%, nicely covered 3.2 times by earnings. These could be bumpy times for the economy and construction, depending on how the coronavirus pans out, but if you are brave and optimistic, Balfour Beatty could offer long-term capital growth along with a rising dividend income stream.Barratt DevelopmentsOr you might prefer to invest in the Barratt Developments (LSE: BDEV) share price instead. This was rising steadily until the recent market panic, but today’s move to slash interest rates could give it a lift by making mortgage borrowing cheaper, and easing the pressure on household finances, to keep the housing market buoyant.Last month, Britain’s biggest housebuilder reported the highest half-year home completions in 12 years, up 9.1% to 8,314 in total, while revenues rose 6.3% to £2.67bn, and profit before tax climbed 3.7% to £423m.The £6.9bn group trades at just 9.8 times forward earnings and offers a hugely generous forecast yield of 6.4%, covered 1.6 times by earnings. Despite a post-Brexit referendum dip, the Barratt share price has grown steadily for a decade, and falling interest rates should help it through today’s worries. I would buy it ahead of gold.

first_imgTry time: Sofiane Guitoune scores a try for France, but should it be worth six points? We want to know what you think about this. Do you think this will stop teams milking penalties or drop-goals and trying to claim more tries, or do you think this is a waste of time? Take the poll below and leave a comment too… Are you in favour of rugby adopting the six-point try? (Poll Closed) No  52.02%      Yes  47.98%      Create Your Own Poll   Are you in favour of rugby adopting the six-point try? At the moment the Welsh Premiership are trialling a new points system where a try is worth six points and all kicks – from drop-goals to penalties and conversions – are worth just two points.The experiment, which has been sanctioned by World Rugby, is being conducted throughout the 2015-16 Principality Premiership and the WRU U18 Wednesday League seasons in Wales. And at the start of September, Pontypridd’s Alex Webber scored the game’s first six-point try. The hope is that the trial will reveal whether an increase in the points-value for a try and a decrease in the points-value of penalties and drop-goals will encourage more running rugby. The current points system has only been in place since 1992, when a try moved from a value of four points to five and now the powers that be are considering the merits of upping the value of a try again.

Although an order for his deportation was issued on 11 May, he is still being held at a detention centre in Gaziantep, a city near the Syrian border.RSF has learned from his lawyer, Emine Şeker, that he began a hunger strike on 21 May.“The ordeal to which Mathias Depardon is being subjected is unacceptable and has lasted for too long,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “The Turkish authorities, who are responsible for his safety, must end this grotesque situation. We again urge the French government to intervene firmly to protect this photographer and obtain his release.”RSF, two other media freedom organizations and 19 media outlets sent a joint letter to Turkish interior minister Süleyman Soylu on 19 May calling for Depardon’s immediate release.Turkey is ranked 155th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.
