A 9% dividend stock I’d buy and a 14% dividend stock I’d avoid as the stock market crashes

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild | Friday, 20th March, 2020 | More on: HGM RTN These are obviously tough times for share investors. The stock market crash of recent weeks threatens to flare up again at any minute. For long-term investors though, this sharp selloff represents a chance to buy some shares which have been painfully oversold.Our job here at The Motley Fool is to help you separate the wheat from the chaff and avoid possible investment traps. Take The Restaurant Group (LSE: RTN) as an example. This is a share which, following recent heavy weakness, now trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 1.6 times for 2020. It carries a monster 14.7% dividend yield too.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…Forget City expectations of an 8% earnings rise this year though. The Restaurant Group is one of those big-yielding investor pitfalls. It’s long been plagued by intense competition in the mid-tier dining sector. But following the coronavirus outbreak, conditions have become even more perilous for the Frankie & Benny’s owner.On Wednesday, it advised like-for-like sales had tanked 12.5% in the preceding fortnight. It also warned corresponding full-year revenues could plummet 25% due to the outbreak. Things could be even worse should the UK government ramp up quarantine measures and force restaurants across the land to temporarily shut.In my opinion, The Restaurant Group is therefore a share to avoid at all costs.A better buy?Those seeking big dividend yields in the current climate would instead be better served by buying Highland Gold Mining (LSE: HGM).You might consider this a questionable selection right now. Safe-haven gold, after all, has sunk along riskier assets like shares. It’s my belief though the price picture remains quite bright for the shiny asset. And latest World Gold Council comments underline why.The body comments that while “the deceleration in economic growth will impact gold consumer demand and gold’s volatility may remain high,” it adds that “high risk levels combined with widespread negative real rates and quantitative easing will be supportive of gold investment demand as a safe haven.”9%+ dividend yieldsAs I said, gold’s been under pressure of late. It’s a result of intense trader-selling to meet margin calls. A stronger US dollar has also hit yellow metal demand in recent days. Like other commodities, gold is priced in the greenback. This makes purchases more expensive when the North American currency rises. Consequently, bullion values have slipped back under $1,500 per ounce.The price outlook for the medium-to-long-term remains compelling though, as macroeconomic uncertainty persists and global central banks keep cutting rates.The Bank of England added to concerns over rising inflation by cutting its benchmark rate to a fresh record low of 0.1% on Thursday. Once market jitters quieten down, I fully expect metal prices to march back towards recent multi-year highs.And Highland Gold Mining’s brilliant value makes it a great way to play this scenario. As well as sporting a rock-bottom forward P/E multiple of 5.2 times, it carries a gigantic 9.2% dividend yield for 2020 too.

The 2020 stock market crash has wiped billions from the value of leading companies in the FTSE 100. As a result of the widespread plunge in share prices, many stocks are trading below their average historic valuations and some look like bargains to me.British American TobaccoSpeaking of which, shares in British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) looks ridiculously cheap in my eyes. The industry titan confirmed at the end of last month that it was sticking to its dividend policy thanks to solid predicted earnings growth for 2020.5G 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…This year, management expects revenue growth to be between 3% and 5%. Additionally, I’m impressed by the group’s intentions to increase margins, convert 90% of operating profit into cash flow and pay out 65% of underlying earnings per share as a dividend.Considering the company currently boasts a yield of around 6.8% and has had a strong start to the year, it’s bewildering that the shares are still down by 8% since mid-February. In my view, the stock looks oversold. I think shares in British American Tobacco are great value, as evidenced by a P/E ratio of just 9.2. I expect investors could be rewarded with attractive returns in the long run, driven by the company’s significant exposure to lucrative opportunities in emerging markets and a consolidation of its dominant market position in the developed world. As such, I rate this insanely cheap UK stock a strong buy.Cheap UK telecoms shareLast week, telecoms giant BT (LSE: BT-A) decided to suspend its final dividend. This comes as no surprise given underlying full-year revenue fell by 3%. What’s more, the group has a list of projects of the horizon that will require considerable sums of cash: namely, investment opportunities in full fibre broadband and the roll-out of 5G in the UK. When the company resumes dividend payments next year, it will be at half the current rate. That’s bad news for investors who were chasing that 14% yield.Inevitably, there will be an impact to business arising from Covid-19. The company expects lower BT Sport revenues and roaming charges as a result of the pandemic. That said, I think the group’s other key drivers of revenue should hold up well. After all, those working from home rely on broadband and their phones.Good news came for investors on Friday when the group announced plans to sell its multibillion-pound stake in its Openreach infrastructure division. An article in The Financial Times detailed that the move would “bankroll a £12bn upgrade of Britain’s broadband network and boost the telecom group’s flagging share price”. After BT’s market capitalisation sank to its lowest level since 2009 on Thursday, investors witnessed the group’s share price rocketing in early Friday morning trading.  Ultimately, a P/E ratio of around 4.5 indicates there’s still significant value. Over the long term, the sale of the group’s Openreach stake could be a catalyst for a further rise in the company’s share price. Moreover, moving customers onto the new 5G and full fibre networks could provide an avenue for growth in the long run. Matthew Dumigan has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Presiding Bishop-elect meets Anglican Communion convention guests

first_img The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 June 30, 2015 at 1:36 pm Firstly we Episcopalians are so blessed with the election of Presiding Bishop elect Michael Curry! When I reviewed the introductory statements of the candidates Bishop Curry’s visionary response was impressive, and thus so grateful and elated on his election! Secondly, I am a little concerned now re his focus on “Evangelism”–this term is interpreted in a variety of ways, yet it is formally defined as “Christians who try to persuade other people to become Christians”; “Evangelical”–Protestant movement of Christian church whose members believe in the authority of the Bible and salvation through personal acceptance of Jesus Christ.” (World English Dictionary), e.g. Billy Graham, John Agee … Yes, PB-elect Curry focused on pubic service and public advocacy, and indeed our Baptismal Covenant invokes us to witness for all peoples for peace and justice … Yet we know and have seen how forms of evangelism have been used and abused all over the world, often to destructive, self-serving means and ends…I must add that I “wish” PB-elect Curry had used the term”ecumenical/ecumenism” concerning church unity relating to, involving or promoting unity of Christian churches around the world … “univeral ecumenical” involving all people or groups around the world aiming at unity between different denominations on basic issues.” (World English Dictionary)In our chaotic world we need to be actively inclusive with pro-active outreach to All peoples of All Faiths In the months to come the visionary leadership of PB-elect Michael Curry will be increasingly revealing and indeed we are hopeful and eager to follow and walk in the Way of Jesus, Palestinian Jew our Dear Lord, Saviour and Redeemer for All peoples of the world.

We can do this because we are all followers of Jesus.”The international Anglican Communion guests had welcomed Curry’s election as The Episcopal Church’s 27th presiding bishop. Along with the African archbishops, the presiding pishop-elect was greeted by the primates of Korea, Japan, the Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Central America and Scotland, and by the representative of the Archbishop of Hong Kong. Several ecumenical guests also were present.

Herald is being developed with the goal of providing more reliable Bluetooth Proximity Detection to improve digital exposure notification applications worldwide in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Herald is a VMware-originated open source project and represents part of VMware’s growing investment in and contributions to open source communities. Herald delivers a set of features which enhance exposure notification at the inter-device communications level. Important features include 100% detection of phones in the foreground and background across iOS and Android devices, more frequent distance estimations enabling more accurate data capture and risk measurement over time. Perhaps most importantly, by providing a common packet header Herald allows for international interoperability amongst all contact tracing applications, whether designed for centralised or decentralised contact matching and risk scoring. TraceSCAN, Facedrive Health’s innovative exposure notification and smart wearables solution, is powered by cutting-edge Bluetooth technology which enables the device to work as an independent wearable product or in conjunction with mobile-only solutions. Given Facedrive Health’s expertise in the development of wearable exposure notification devices, joining the Herald community and contributing to its development was a natural fit. Facedrive Health’s contributions will focus on the development of code to enable wearable exposure notification devices, such as Facedrive Health’s TraceSCAN, to communicate with all other devices that implement the Herald Protocol, thereby giving TraceSCAN a 100% device compatibility potential. Adoption of Herald will allow TraceSCAN wearables to operate across multiple exposure notification platforms globally, whilst accelerating our expansion in exposure notification internationally. The community development will also include defining a technical standard on international interoperability for Bluetooth based device communications related to contact tracing. Facedrive developed TraceSCAN wearables health tech to increase the reach of exposure notification into personal and workplace environments where use of smartphones is not possible or not allowed. TraceSCAN also addresses specific at-risk demographic segments such as senior citizens, children, and low-income individuals who may not have access to smartphones or not be familiar with their use. TraceSCAN is also well-suited for other unique workplace environments such as the travel industry (for example, cruise and airlines); construction sites; healthcare facilities and senior care homes; schools, colleges and universities; farms and gyms. Facedrive believes that Herald has the potential of greatly increasing the reach of exposure notification applications and improving their accuracy. “The Herald Protocol is an innovative and necessary foundational technology that can significantly improve the communications layer of the exposure notification application stack. Based on our experience in building TraceSCAN, we are pleased to be involved in the community development of Herald, alongside VMware and other partners,” said Sayan Navaratnam, Chairman and CEO of Facedrive. “Herald has the potential to significantly improve the range and accuracy of COVID-19 related applications and to enable universal interoperability across technology silos in Canada and internationally. This type of global connectivity is critical because the larger an exposure notification network becomes, the more effective it is at detecting and halting the spread of COVID-19 and other infectious diseases,” added Navaratnam.
