See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Kirsteen Mackay | Wednesday, 1st January, 2020 | More on: ABF ULVR The political backdrop of 2019 truly tested investors’ nerves and I think this is set to continue throughout 2020.Despite an air of calm (along with a share price rally) descending on the markets post-election, I think this will be short-lived. The Conservative win halted the market uncertainty that had been weighing it down, but as the reality of a ‘Boris Brexit’ becomes ever more real, I think the fallout for British business will be clear.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…Environmental, social and governance (ESG) and sustainability themes have been at the front of investors’ minds as increasing concerns around climate change moved up a gear or two in 2019. Raging Australian bushfires, Greta Thunberg meeting Sir David Attenborough and Mark Carney’s keynote speech warning big business to take responsibility before it’s too late, mean that we’ve ended the year with the climate emergency remaining headline news.The pressure is on for capitalism to help prevent an almighty climate disaster and for companies to govern in a responsible way, creating opportunities, while improving lives and the environment.Yet as investors, we shouldn’t forget that crisis brings opportunity. All of which causes me to consider some companies I think could go the distance in 2020 and prosper in a world more focused on ethical and sustainability issues.FTSE 100 favouriteUnilever (LSE:ULVR) is a FTSE 100 consumer goods specialist with many household brands under its banner include Dove soap, Surf detergent and Knorr.It’s considered a relatively safe stock to own, with its regular 3% dividend yield and plentiful supply of brands that consumers love to buy on repeat. It’s also a feel-good stock as it has championed alternatives to animal testing for over 30 years and in November it received the US Corporate Consciousness Award for industry-leading work to end animal testing.It’s committed to sustainability and the environment too. It unveiled reusable packaging innovations a year ago. Last month it announced that it has partnered with speciality chemicals company Evonik to create an environmentally friendly cleaning ingredient, Rhamnolipid.It has an £114bn market cap, price-to-earnings ratio of 17, earnings per share of £2.53 and its continued growth prospects look good too as it has considerable exposure to emerging markets such as Asia, Brazil and India. I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

A sweeter futureAssociated British Foods (LSE:ABF) aims to provide safe, nutritious food and affordable clothing through its recognisable brands such as Twinings, Dorset Cereals, Ryvita, and Silver Spoon sugar along with its high street favourite retailer Primark.The company has a £21bn market cap, trailing P/E of 23 and earnings per share are £1.11. Its dividend yield is 1.8%. Despite (or perhaps because of) its Primark operation having been criticised from ethical and sustainable viewpoints in the past, in its 2019 responsibility report, it outlines its ethical business practices. It’s working to reduce its carbon footprint, use natural resources efficiently and promote biodiversity.At its December AGM, it predicted another year of strong profit and margin growth in its grocery brands. Although its sugar division brought profits down in recent years when an oversupply problem caused prices to be suppressed, this seems to be taking a turn for the better and increasing demand is expected to increase prices in 2020.I like both these companies as potential 2020 buys as they’re long-standing businesses with a catalogue of well-known brands and FTSE 100 status. I also think they’ll stand strong in post-Brexit Britain.  Which stocks should I buy in 2020?last_img read more

Soy Growers Benefit from Meat and Poultry Export Growth

first_img By Andy Eubank – May 23, 2016 Home Indiana Agriculture News Soy Growers Benefit from Meat and Poultry Export Growth USB on HAT with Scott SinglestadThe importance of poultry and livestock to soybean farmers is well documented. What may not be as well-known are the benefits for soybean farmers when U.S. meat, milk and eggs are exported.According to a soy checkoff-funded study, 40 million tons of soybean meal, or the meal from 1.6 billion bushels of U.S. soybeans, were exported in the form of meat and poultry between the 2005 and 2015 marketing years. This was worth almost 14 billion dollars to the U.S. soybean industry.Soy checkoff farmer-leader Scott Singlestad from Minnesota explains why U.S. meat and poultry exports continue to grow.“Once a country or their people start eating better, they want a higher protein and more protein in their diet,” he says. “And there’s no better way adding protein to the diet than meats.”U.S. animal ag consumes 97 percent of the domestic supply of soybean meal, making it the most important end user of U.S. soy.For more information on the importance U.S. soybean farmers working together with animal producers, visit www.UnitedSoybean.org.

How Rent Dollars Funnel Back Locally

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / How Rent Dollars Funnel Back Locally A look into the value rent dollars have on the local community by RENTCafé has found that 90 cents of each dollar paid toward rent goes towards taxes, wages, maintenance and improvements, and mortgage payments, while just 10 cents of each dollar belongs to owners and investors.Creative Writer, Editor, and Researcher Florentina Sarac took a look at a Yardi-sponsored initiative, the “COVID-19 Rental Housing Initiative,” a new resource for renters and housing operators backed by four major apartment associations (IREM, NAA, NMHC, NARPM).The American Rescue Plan, signed by President Joe Biden on March 11, seeks to relieve renters and housing providers due to the pandemic, offering $21.55 billion in emergency rental assistance, in addition to the $25 billion in aid received in December, bringing the total to approximately $46 billion in assistance total. Renters nationwide are estimated to be approximately $60 billion behind in payments since the outset of the pandemic.“The largest part of every dollar of rent is used to keep rental housing operational, as 90 cents of it go towards state and local taxes, which support essential services in the community, employee wages, maintenance and improvements, and mortgage payments,” said Sarac. “Just 10 cents go to property owners and investors.”Rent checks are reinvested in the community in the form of taxes, worker salaries and maintenance for buildings. Mortgage payments comprise the largest percentage of rental dollars, at 38 cents. The majority of small owners depend on this money, according to data from the COVID-19 Rental Housing Initiative, as 59% of them carry a mortgage, and many operate on thin margins.“Although well-intended, the extended eviction moratoriums expiring at the end of March did nothing to address renters‘ underlying financial distress or the risk of housing insecurity,” said Sarac in the report. “Renters deeply shaken by the COVID-19 pandemic are incurring levels of debt that they may never be able to repay.”According to data by the Urban Institute and Moody’s Analytics, the average renter behind on their rent owes $6,000 cited the report. With approximately 10.25 million renters in debt as of January 2021, back rent totals have reached an estimated $57.3 billion.Click here for more of RENTCafé’s breakdown of rental dollars.
