The economic outlook remains fraught with danger as the Covid-19 crisis rumbles on. Still, here are two dividend-paying UK shares I’d happily buy in hopes of making big returns in 2021 (and beyond).#1: A UK share already in my portfolioI already own shares of DS Smith (LSE: SMDS) in a Stocks and Shares ISA. One of the reasons why I bought this UK stock was because demand for its cardboard boxes and other packaging materials is soaring as e-commerce explodes across the globe.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…Latest data from Barclaycard illustrates how fast internet retailing is growing. It showed that online spending at the company’s card processing business soared 73.2% in January.The e-commerce boom is causing some near-term issues for DS Smith, though. As chief executive Miles Roberts recently told the BBC, the UK share faces a struggle to get boxes back into the recycling chain so it can keep making products. This could have a significant impact on its ability to meet demand and thus to keep growing revenues. The FTSE 100 stock also operates a full recycling and waste management service on top of making packaging products.DS Smith offers inflation-beating dividend yields for the next couple of years. Assuming they happen, these sit at 3.3% and 3.9% for the financial periods to April 2021 and 2022 respectively. Annual dividends here rose at a compound annual growth rate of around 20% in the nine years to 2020. And I’m expecting them to get strongly back on the front foot from 2021 onwards.#2: Safe as houses?I think that getting exposure to the private rented sector is a good idea too. I wouldn’t do it by investing directly in buy-to-let though. Big upfront costs, running costs and tax bills make this an unattractive strategy for me.Instead, I’d invest in UK stocks like The PRS REIT (LSE: PRSR). In its own words, this particular company focuses on “high-quality, new-build family homes for the private rental market.” I think investing in real estate investment trusts (or REITs) is an especially good idea as rules state that they must distribute at least 90% of yearly profits to shareholders through dividends.The supply of rental properties continues to lag supply. And this keeps on pushing tenant costs higher. According to Zoopla rents grew 2.3% in the final three months of 2020, up from 1.3% a year earlier. This of course bodes well for the likes of The PRS REIT. And it leads City brokers to predict further annual dividend growth at the UK share over the medium term. This means the company carries huge dividend yields of 5% and 5.3% for the fiscal years to June 2021 and 2022 respectively.There are risks to The PRS REIT in 2021, however. An improving outlook for the UK economy could boost homebuyer appetite and consequently reduce renter numbers. The return of low-deposit mortgages later down the line could have the same effect.

The company has rapidly expanded throughout the world and is currently in 329 cities in 59 countries.The centre of excellence will cater for countries and cities outside the US.Welcoming the Uber investment as a massive boost for Limerick and the IT sector in Ireland, Finance Minister Michael Noonan said: “We are particularly delighted to welcome a world leading company, operating at the cutting-edge of innovative technology, to Limerick city centre. Uber will become a major part of the Limerick economy.“Ireland is proving to be a hugely attractive country for foreign investment, especially Limerick which has a history of attracting innovative technology companies due to our well-educated university graduates”.Kieran Harte, general manager for Uber Ireland said there could be no better place to launch such a centre than in Ireland.“We are so thrilled to be here and setting up our operations in this city, which has a tradition of welcoming innovative technology companies. Not only are we investing in the city, we’re also proud to be bringing employment at all levels to the region.”Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan said the announcement was another good day on the jobs front for Limerick.“The fact that Uber chose Limerick for its first major investment outside the US is a testament to what Limerick has to offer both in terms of a skilled workforce and a dynamic, attractive city in which to locate. I am particularly pleased that the main Uber location will be in the city centre. This will support the major improvements we are seeing in the centre of Limerick City.“This is a really positive boost to our local economy and small businesses in Limerick as 300 wage packets are spent on local services”, she added.Limerick Fine Gael TD Kieran O’Donnell said it was another strong vote of confidence in the city and the quality of the workforce there.“One of the significant features of this announcement is its location in Thomas Street which will have a positive spin-off for the entire economic development of the city centre”.Limerick City and County Council also welcomed the news.Cllr Ger Mitchell, Deputy Mayor of the City and County of Limerick said Uber’s planned investment was “a clear indication of Limerick’s growing status as an attractive location for investment”.Limerick Metropolitan District Mayor Cllr Jerry O’Dea said the “positive, collaborative working relationship” that has been established between Limerick City and County Council and regional development agencies such as Enterprise Ireland and the IDA to promote Limerick and the wider region as a location for investment is delivering “real and tangible results” for Limerick and the wider region.“This is fantastic news for Limerick considering it follows so soon after Dell announced the creation of 100 new highly skilled engineer jobs in Raheen, Viagogo.com confirmed it is to open a purpose-built international operations centre in Limerick, and Vistakon announced it was investing €100 million in its manufacturing operations in Limerick”.

Supporters make way for sleepers at Thomond Park

first_imgNewsCommunityPhotosSupporters make way for sleepers at Thomond ParkBy Staff Reporter – October 24, 2018 1714 Pictured at Sleep Out Night 2018 at Thomond Park, Limerick – Participants at the Sleep Out Night 2018 possing before spend the night at Thomond Park supporting Mid West Simon Community Fundraising Sleepout. Picture: Álex Ricöller/limerickpostSLEEPERS replaced supporters at Thomond Park after Munster Rugby’s Heineken Cup clash with Gloucester last Saturday as volunteers descended on the Ennis Road stadium for Mid West Simon’s annual sleep out.The event kicked off Simon’s Christmas fundraising campaign, which aims to raise the €42,000 shortfall faced to run the family hub and housing first service. The core principle behind these two services is to offer long-term solutions to homelessness.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Since opening its doors last October, the family hub has re-homed 14 families into secure accommodation, with a 100 per cent success rate for tenancy retention. Each family is provided with a resettlement worker to support them into permanent accommodation.The family hub also offers a range of supports to the children and adults housed, to empower them to live independently but also to try and minimise the traumatic impact of being homeless. Classes provided include healthy cooking, budgeting, art, sports and CV workshops.Mid West Simon are also thrilled to be the recipient of a sensory wall which was funded by the national lottery through the HSE. This will be a huge benefit to children in the hub on the autistic spectrum.Housing First works with people who have been in long-term homelessness and offers intensive supports to clients. The team encompasses considerable expertise in the areas of mental health and substance misuse. The service also offers intensive supports to clients engaging in back to education. There is a volunteer programme whereby clients are given opportunities to volunteer with MWS with the prospect of progressing into paid employment.Sleep-out participants joined the Mid West Simon team in the press room in Thomond Park for a talk on homeless services, followed by a kicking competition on the pitch and walk-through of the museum. The group then spent the night in the tunnel in solidarity with those who are homeless in the Mid West region.Mid West Simon Fundraising Co-ordinator Jade Quinn said they were extremely grateful to all the participants and the volunteers who made the night a success.“We also appreciated the generosity of the stadium team at Thomond Park for allowing us to use the facilities. Homelessness reflects a form of social injustice and the efforts of this group will go some way to supporting vulnerable families and individuals in the Mid West,” she concluded.by Tom [email protected] Previous articleMinister’s airport strategy flies in the face of regional developmentNext articleCapturing the spirit around Lough Gur Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!

The Court had also directed the UP Government to issue administrative orders to extend the tenure of the Special Judge of CBI Court, Lucknow, who is holding the trial, till the delivery of judgment. The judge was otherwise due to retire on September 30, 2019.On May 6, the trial judge, Sri Yadav, wrote to the SC seeking extension of time stating that even recording of evidence has not been completed.The top court observed that the trial judge should use video conferencing facilities to complete the proceedings.”We may indicate that video conferencing facilities are available and should be used by Shri Yadav in order to complete all evidence as well as applications that may be filed in that behalf. It is up to Shri Yadav to control the proceedings in accordance with law so that inordinate delay that is beyond the time frame that we now give, is no longer breached”, stated the order. BJP veterans L K Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi, Kalyan Singh, Uma Bharati and 13 others are facing trial on charges of criminal conspiracy behind the demolition of Babri Masjid in December, 1992.On April 19, 2017, the Supreme Court bench of Justices P C Ghose and R F Nariman had restored the conspiracy charges against the accused by allowing an appeal filed by the CBI against the discharge given by the Allahabad High Court to the accused.Invoking its extraordinary constitutional powers under Article 142 of the Constitution, the bench also transferred the pending separate trial in a Rae Bareilly Magistrate court and clubbed it with criminal proceedings in the Lucknow CBI Court. The top court had further ordered day-to-day trial to be concluded in two years in the case.The civil case pertaining to Ayodhya-Babri Masjid disptue had attained finality on November 8, 2019, when a 5-judge bench directed that the entire disputed land of 2.77 acres in Ayodhya must be handed over for the construction of Ram Mandir. The Court had held that an alternate plot of 5 acres must be allotted to the Sunni Waqf Board for construction of mosque. This direction was passed invoking powers under Article 142 of the Constitution. The Court observed that the destruction of Babri mosque in 1992 was a violation of law. The act of placing idols beneath the central dome of the mosque in 1949 was an act of “desecration”, observed the bench comprising the then CJI Ranjan Gogoi, Justices S A Bobde, D Y Chandrachud, Ashok Bhushan and Abdul Nazeer.Click here to download orderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

This week’s case round up

first_imgNonconsensual terminationCole vLondon Borough of Hackney IDS Brief 674 EATCole’s jobceased to exist following a reorganisation. Her options were either to take upa new position if a comparable job was available (which there was not) or toapply for other vacant posts. She could also opt for a severance package. Cole wastold she was not likely to be successful at interview for a vacant post but thecouncil omitted to inform her that she had priority rights in that regard.Believing any application for a vacant position would be unsuccessful, Coleasked to take voluntary redundancy and the council agreed. Cole thencomplained to the tribunal that she had been unfairly selected for redundancyand unfairly dismissed. The tribunal held there was no dismissal but rather amutual termination of the contract. If however, there had been a dismissal,Cole’s application for voluntary severance constituted a dismissal for “someother substantial reason” and the council had not acted unfairly.Colesuccessfully appealed to the EAT which held that but for the council’s decisionto reorganise Cole would not have applied for the severance payment. There wasno consensual termination, rather this was a dismissal by reason of redundancy. This week’s case round upOn 12 Dec 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.

She sought a review of the decision but wasunsuccessful.On appeal,the EAT found that the chairman was aware of Osborne’s reason for withdrawingthe breach of contract claim, namely the transfer of the claim to another courtclaim but failed to properly consider the implications when making the orderfor “dismissal”.
