Image source: Getty Images. center_img See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves The FTSE 100 is full of stocks with the potential to create a considerable amount of wealth for shareholders. However, some of these companies are much more attractive than others. Here are two FTSE 100 dividend stocks that stand out as some of the index’s top defensive plays.Reckitt Benckiser GroupReckitt Benckiser (LSE: RB) has run into some problems over the past few years, and investors have been quick to turn their backs on the business. In 2016, the market was willing to pay a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 29 to own Reckitt’s shares. At the time of writing, the stock is trading at P/E of only 19.9.5G 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…Despite this performance, the outlook for the owner of consumer goods brands such as Durex, Mucinex, Scholl, Strepsils and Cillit Bang is bright.While the company’s stock might have come under pressure since 2016, earnings have remained relatively constant. Meanwhile, the top line has only increased. Therefore, fundamentally, the business is stronger today than it was three years ago, contrary to what the market would have you believe.At the same time, Reckitt’s dividend to investors has continued to increase. The stock currently supports a dividend yield of 2.6%. The payout is covered nearly twice by earnings per share, so there’s plenty of headroom for further growth as well. As such, now could be an excellent time to snap up shares in this consumer goods giant at a discount price.Over the long term, demand for Reckitt’s products should only grow in line with the world’s population, as the need for cleaning products and consumer healthcare products is only going to grow. This should enable the company to maintain its dividend growth track record for many years to come. Over the past six years, the company has increased its dividend at an average rate of 5% per annum.UnileverUnilever (LSE: ULVR) has many similar qualities. Like Reckitt, it owns some of the world’s largest consumer goods brands, the demand for which should only increase over the long run.The company’s brands are some of the most respected and recognised in the world, such as Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. That said, not all of the group’s brands are performing to expectations. As a result, management is planning to offload underperforming businesses, such as its tea division.The company is reportedly seeking a buyer for this business, and if its last disposal is anything to go by, management will use the proceeds to buy-back shares and fund additional acquisitions. This should only bolster Unilever’s growth case.The shares are a bit more expensive than Reckitt’s, but not by much. The stock is currently trading at P/E of 20. On top of this, shares in the consumer goods giant support a dividend yield of 3.2%.The payout has increased at an average rate of 8% per annum for the past decade. With more deals on the horizon, it would appear this trend can continue. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Image source: Getty Images. The William Hill (LSE: WMH) share price has risen by over 350% from the 29p low seen in March. Brave punters who piled in during March’s stock market crash have won big on this bookmaker.Despite this sharp rise, William Hill still looks cheap against historic levels. At a last-seen level of 134p, the shares are worth 50% less than they were two years ago.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…Is there still money to be made from this famous name? I think it’s possible.The good newsAfter a £2 stake limit on in-store gaming machines was introduced last year, William Hill closed 713 of its UK shops. That turned out to be a lucky move ahead of the coronavirus lockdown.The group’s continuing online expansion is also helping to cushion its performance. According to a recent update, UK online revenue online fell by 10% during the first six months of this year.I’d guess this performance would have been much stronger except for the cancellation of most sporting events. Fortunately, the acquisition of the Mr Green online casino last year provided an alternative outlet for punters keen to lay bets.There’s more good news overseas. International online revenue rose by 17% during the 23 weeks to 9 June, while US revenue was up by 30% before the coronavirus lockdown hit performance.William Hill appears to be doing all the right things.The not-so-good newsThe firm is keen to boast of its 24% share of the growing US sports betting market. But this remains small. William Hill’s US revenue totalled just £126m last year, generating an operating profit of just £1m.It could take some time for this to replace the lost profits from the UK high street business, where operating profit fell by 45% last year, from £150m to just £83m. The most profitable and stable part of the business is online, but even here, profits fell by 9% to £119m last year.New chief executive Ulrik Bengtsson has some work to do to return all parts of the group to growth. In the meantime, he’s been forced to suspend the dividend and raise £200m in a share placing to help cut the group’s debt.William Hill share price: What I’d do nowIn my opinion, anyone buying William Hill shares today is betting that online and US growth will outpace any further decline in the UK high street business. As you can probably guess, I’m not keen to own shares in a high street bookmaker. I see these stores as low-quality businesses that are likely to attract continued attention from regulators.Broker forecasts suggest William Hill will report a £31m loss this year, followed by an adjusted net profit of about £87m in 2021. This prices the stock on around 14 times earnings. I can see some opportunity for investors from here. But the group faces tough competition online and in the US.I don’t think William Hill’s share price is obviously cheap. For investors hoping to make a million from stocks, I’d look elsewhere.last_img read more

Performance issues at work cause sleepless nights for UK managers

first_img Staff shortages and performance levels are major threats to UK business, and are causing sleepless nights for many senior managers.A survey of 200 senior executives by consulting firm Cap-gemini showed that 69% of UK managers consider staff performance and shortages to be major threats to their business, with almost 43% being kept awake at night as a result.The Red Eye Report also shows that 63% of respondents lose sleep worrying about their own futures, with more than a third (35%) admitting the stress was so bad that, given the option to start again, they would choose a different career altogether. Respondents were also sceptical about government plans to pass legislation on family-friendly working. Only 19% thought it was a good thing while almost a third (32%) saw it as a bad thing.Ian Jordan, head of consulting services at Capgemini, said: “It’s harder than ever to manage and motivate the workforce. In recent years, employers faced with the vagaries of the economic downturn were caught in a cycle of cost cutting and saving. This had an impact on people’s stress levels, sense of job security and their perception of their employer.“In an upturn, the challenge is how to change that perception quickly, as employees become much more proactive in managing their own careers,” Jordan said.

Status and trends of albatrosses in the French Southern Territories, Western Indian Ocean

first_imgToday albatrosses are threatened worldwide, especially by fishing activities, and many populations are currently in decline. Albatrosses breeding at the French Southern Territories in the south-western Indian Ocean, on the Crozet, Kerguelen and Saint-Paul–Amsterdam island archipelagos, are monitored regularly. This monitoring has been based on a sample of species and sites, and there was a need for an assessment of the population trends for all species at each site. During the past 3 years most populations have been surveyed, allowing an assessment of the trends of albatrosses breeding at the archipelagos of the French Southern Territories over the past 40 years. Wandering Albatrosses show similar trends at all sites within the Crozet and Kerguelen archipelagos, with a recent recovery of colonies after strong declines in the 1970s. Amsterdam Albatrosses are increasing, albeit at lower rates during recent years. Indian Yellow-nosed Albatrosses show a global decline over the entire range. The trends among Black-browed and Grey-headed Albatrosses vary between colonies and archipelagos. Sooty Albatrosses have continuously decreased in numbers whereas Light-mantled Albatross numbers vary considerably between years, with an overall increase over the past 30 years. These results confirm that the French Southern Territories in the south-west Indian Ocean support a significant portion of the world populations of several albatross species. Several species appear to be steadily decreasing probably because of the impact of fisheries and disease outbreaks. The reasons for different trends among populations of the same species are not well understood and require further investigation.last_img read more
