I reckon FTSE 100 dividend stocks are the best shares to buy for passive income

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. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997”center_img Harvey Jones has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Barclays, GlaxoSmithKline, HSBC Holdings, Lloyds Banking Group, and Pennon 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. I’m hoping to generate a passive income from my portfolio in retirement, and I reckon FTSE 100 dividend stocks are the best shares to achieve that.I’m not relying on the State Pension to fund my retirement. That only pays £175.18 a week, which adds up to just £9,109 a year. I plan to supplement that by generating a passive income from a diversified portfolio of dividend-paying stocks, mostly from the FTSE 100.5G 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…The pandemic has been hard on dividend stocks, as two-thirds of UK companies cut or suspended payouts totalling £39.5bn last year, according to Link Group. Despite that, the best shares on the FTSE 100 will still provide generous income this year, as companies like Sainsbury’s and Ferguson restore their dividends. AJ Bell reckons the FTSE 100 will yield 3.8% this year. Of course, like all forecasts, this could change based on future developments and is not something to rely on. I’m buying FTSE 100 stocks for incomeBut I’m happy with that, given the pandemic. Especially when I compare it to the 0.25% I’m getting on cash. The best shares can yield 20 or 30 times that piffling sum.There are loads of top dividend stocks out there right now. Pharmaceutical companies AstraZeneca and GlaxoSmithKline yield 2.78% and 6.23% respectively. Mining Giants BHP Group and Rio Tinto yield 4.32% and 4.95%. Financial services companies Phoenix Group Holdings and Standard Life Aberdeen yield 6.68% and 6.83% respectively. Everywhere I look on the index, I see household name stocks rewarding shareholders with attractive dividends. Legal & General Group pays an income of 6.84% a year, while Vodafone Group yields 5.8%.I haven’t even mentioned utility stocks, which I think are some of the best shares to buy for reliable income, including National Grid (5.57%), Pennon Group (4.68%), and United Utilities Group (4.67%).Before Covid-19 struck, the banking, energy, and mining sector offered some of the best dividend shares of all. If vaccines liberate us from lockdown, they could do so again. Especially banks like Barclays, HSBC Holdings, and Lloyds Banking Group.Some of the best shares aroundIt is important to remember that, unlike cash, dividend income is not guaranteed. Companies can cut payouts at any time, as we saw last year. Naturally, my capital is at risk as well. If stock markets fall, so will the value of my portfolio.Before buying any of these stocks, I will check fundamentals, such as how well the dividend is covered by earnings.I will further reduce my risk by investing in a spread of stocks, and holding them for the long term. By which I mean, 20 or 30 years, at least. That should give the market time to recover from any correction.There is another reason why I reckon FTSE 100 stocks are the best shares to buy for long-term passive income. The index is still down more than 1,000 points after last year’s crash, and full of buying opportunities.The years ahead may be bumpy, as the full cost of the pandemic makes itself felt. Some FTSE 100 sectors may struggle to recover, such as travel and leisure. Despite this, I reckon FTSE 100 stocks are among the best shares to buy, for my retirement. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

This campaign will seek to help charities fill their vacancies, and to encourage younger people and those from minority communities to volunteer.An online marketing campaign and targeted print advertising will be used to communicate the value of becoming a trustee to young professionals. Employers will be encouraged to support staff who wish to volunteer as trustees. Careers advisers will also encourage job-hunters to consider trusteeship as a way of gaining skills and experience.

Kinesiology practical exam benefits TCU community

Linkedin TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Twitter Elizabeth Hinzhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-hinz/ Twitter Elizabeth Hinzhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-hinz/ Supreme Court allows Birdville prayer case to stand printTCU kinesiology students filled the main corridor of the University Recreation Center on the mornings of Oct. 18 and Oct. 20 to prepare for their practical exam.But this exam was different: Rather than completing a test in the classroom, the students held a free cardiovascular risk assessment event to evaluate the current health of other students, faculty and staff.Instructional laboratory coordinator Andy Kreutzer said the test is a full assessment of a person’s current health which then, based on the American College of Sports Medicine guidelines, classifies a person’s health risks. It also allows the kinesiology students to recommend whether the person should see a doctor if they want to start an exercise program, or if they should have an exercise test done.“It is their practical exam so we use it as an evaluation – if they’ve learned the techniques and they know how to do all of this,” Kreutzer said. “And also, it’s a nice service to provide to the TCU community because everyone can come by to get their health assessed for free, you know, get some information that you might not necessarily get that easily otherwise.”Forty-five students from the Exercise Assessment and Prescription classes participated in the assessment. The students took height and weight to calculate body mass index, measured skin folds to estimate the percent body fat, took waist and hip circumference to determine where the body is carrying the fat mass, measured blood pressure and did some risk assessment.Kim Taylor and Dylan Hoover prepare for their next assessment. Photo by Elizabeth Hinz.Junior movement science major Dylan Hoover said the event helped him apply what he learned in class to real life.“I really enjoy it more than being lectured to,” Hoover said. “We get people that come in, that don’t know anything about what we’re doing, so it helps to kind of explain and walk them through the process.”Senior movement science major Kim Taylor agreed that the assessment was a good experience.“It just gives us a greater chance to practice what we’ve been learning,” Taylor said. “Especially if you’re planning on doing some of this when you graduate, this is a good stepping stone.”Junior math major Laura Meng said being assessed has made her more aware of her health.“I think it’s important to know this stuff,” Meng said. “It’s about your health, so I mean it could be potentially dangerous if you don’t know it.” + posts ReddIt Elizabeth Hinzhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-hinz/ Elizabeth Hinzhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/elizabeth-hinz/ Previous articleChief inclusion officer shares ways to incorporate diversityNext articleRobotics at the Southwest Regional Library Elizabeth Hinz RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Study ranks TCU third for liquor-law violations per 10,000 students Cost of textbooks on the rise Elizabeth Hinz Facebook Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

House shift moves subpoena power to Democrats

first_img‘Unchartered territory’ as Trump impeachment trial begins in the Senate printDemocrats will takeover the House in January with sweeping subpoena authority put in place by Republicans when they thought Hillary Clinton was in line for the presidency.The 2015 rule change allows committee chairs to issue subpoenas without consulting the minority party about the purpose or scope.Prior to that change, House subpoenas required a majority vote from committee members and consultation with the most senior member of the committee.“At the time, they thought [Hillary] Clinton was going to win and they thought they could hamstring her with investigations,” said Dr. Matthew Eshbaugh-Soha, professor and department chair of the political science department at the University of North Texas. “Now the heat is going to ramp up a bit because there’s no incentive for the majority party, come January, to do anything but ask all the questions they want.”Democrats won the House in the midterm election; claiming an additional 32 seats as of Nov. 13. Democrats will head every House committee come 2019. Of the 21 standing committees in the House, 14 of the committees allow for their chairperson to issue subpoenas at their own discretion, according to the Congressional Research Service.Republicans on Govt Oversight CommitteeVenngage InfographicsDr. Grant Ferguson, a political science professor at TCU, said in addition to the subpoena power, the Democrats simple majority will give them leverage, and an inherent check while debating legislation.“Democratic and Republican priorities in the budget or continuing resolutions for appropriations are different,” Ferguson said. “In negotiating over them, House Democrats will provide a check on the President and Senate Republicans.”Democrats will have to avoid abusing this newfound power.
