Andy Ross | Wednesday, 22nd July, 2020 | More on: AZN GSK NG Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Various studies have shown that dividends, when reinvested, play a significant role in overall investment returns. For this reason I have a watchlist of income shares. Here are three I’d consider buying now to hold for the next decade.The steady share to power my portfolioNational Grid (LSE: NG) is a share I’ve held for a long time. I see little reason why I won’t continue to hold the shares for another decade. The dividend yield is 5.5%. I think, even in an unprecedented environment like the current one, the dividend is unlikely to be cut.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…A halving of returns from Ofgem is far from ideal for the shares and I suspect that’s why they’ve fallen recently. Long-term though, I think the growth in the unregulated ‘Ventures’ part of the group, alongside growth in the US, means National Grid should do well.A combination of a steady business, growth opportunities, a share price that isn’t volatile, and a dividend that should always be paid, combine to make me think National Grid is a great investment for the next decade.The Covid-19 factor AstraZeneca (LSE: AZN) is another share I hold. It’s also another share that should do well in all market conditions as there’ll always be demand for pharmaceuticals.This is why I fully expect it to always provide dividend income. As the share price has done very well in recent years, and especially in the last few months, it’s not the highest yielding of shares. However, that’s fine if you’re looking for dividend growth, which is arguably more important than yield.Involvement in finding a vaccine against Covid-19 has helped lift sentiment around AstraZeneca. This has boosted the share price, which was already rising due to a flurry of positive drug updates last year and this year. The shares are expensive, but I think they should do well over the next 10 years.Room for improvement and dividend growthGlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) is another pharmaceutical business I’d add to my list of shares to hold for the long term. It’s a bit behind AstraZeneca in some ways, but that gives it more room for improvement. It has a higher yield, but the downside is that the dividend has been held up for a few years as the group focuses on R&D.Assuming this R&D investment translates into potential big new treatments – as it has at AstraZeneca – then the next decade could be very good for the share price.Just this week, it was announced that GSK is making a £130m investment into German group CureVac, which is also involved in finding a vaccine for Covid-19. The investment could help GSK defend its strength in the vaccine market where it’s a major player.With that increased focus on R&D and more specifically, oncology, I think GSK could be on a path similar to AstraZeneca’s. It’s playing catch-up, but the share price could do well if the bets on drugs pay off. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Paschal-area residents opposed to new apartments

Outside of the classroom, he enjoys hanging out with his friends, keeping up with current events and enjoying TCU sporting events. printPaschal High School. Photo by Collin Gray.Residents of the Paschal neighborhood surrounding TCU are concerned about safety and overpopulation after new apartments were proposed to come to the area. CRG, a Chicago-based developer, is considering building a multifamily housing development to continue the growth of the community. The proposed 350-unit apartment complex would be bordered by West Cantey, West Lowden, Forest Park Boulevard and Wayside Avenue and would add more congestion to an already-cramped area, according to residents living near Paschal High School. J.D. Barnes, the president of the Paschal Neighborhood Association, said his main concerns are traffic and the safety of high school students. “It’s a nightmare now,” Barnes said. “It’s pretty crowded right now and adding 300 more cars isn’t gonna help.”Since the apartments would likely have TCU students living in them, Barnes said he’s a little worried about the close proximity they’ll have to high school students and the potential bad influence they would have on the young adults.Jay Case, a CRG developer, said he believes Fort Worth’s housing market is growing, and that’s why CRG wants to build in the area.“This land was for sale,” Case said. “We seek out these opportunities to capitalize on.” Linkedin Collin Gray Facebook Welcome TCU Class of 2025 TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history ReddIt Collin Grayhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/collin-gray/ Barnes said he believes everyone “needs to slow down and take a breath” on whether to finish the apartments.Mary Lou Dunaway, who has lived in the area for nearly 20 years, said CRG needs to consider the concerns of nearby homeowners before starting a project of this magnitude. “I want to be able to live in a house where you can walk a young child,” Dunaway said, “not across from college kids.”Even though she’s opposed to the idea, Dunaway said she thinks change will eventually come to the neighborhood. Barnes and Dunaway both felt that the community wasn’t properly notified of the zoning changes.Both Case and Barnes are optimistic that their arguments will prevail at the upcoming Fort Worth City Council meeting on March 3.

New Jersey governor calls for sheriff to resign over racist remarks on Sikh attorney general

first_imgBergen County Sheriffs Office(TRENTON, N.J.) — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy is calling for one of the state’s sheriffs to step down after the sheriff was purportedly recorded making racist comments about New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal, who is Sikh American.Bergen County Sheriff Michael Saudino allegedly made multiple controversial remarks in a Jan. 16 conversation that took place after Murphy was inaugurated as governor, the recordings of which were obtained by WNYC.In the recording, Saudino was discussing whether Murphy had made any appointments from Bergen County, according to WNYC. When an undersheriff in the room remarked that Grewal is from Bergen County, Saudino purportedly replied, “He didn’t do that because of Bergen County. He did that because of the turban.”Grewal wears the turban due to his religious beliefs.Saudino also purportedly said in the recordings that when the governor spoke about policing issues such as marijuana and better criminal justice reform, he was telling New Jersey residents that they could “do whatever the f— they want.”“Christ almighty. In other words, let the blacks come in, do whatever the f— they want, smoke their marijuana, do this, do that, and don’t worry about it,” Saudino said. “You know, we’ll tie the hands of cops.”In another recording, Saudino purports to question whether Lt. Gov. Sheila Oliver is gay, asking, “Is she gay? ‘Cause she’s never been married.”Grewal wrote on Twitter that he has developed a “thick skin” after being “called far worse.” But, he described Saudino’s apparent comments about the Black community as “wrong, racist and hurtful” and the comment on Oliver as “inappropriate and homophobic.”The source who provided the recordings to WNYC told the public radio station that they took place inside a county office building after he attended Murphy’s inauguration. Two undersheriffs were also in the room, according to WNYC.The governor said in a statement to ABC News that if it is Saudino speaking in the recording, he should resign.“Without question, the comments made on that recording are appalling, and anyone using racist, homophobic, and hateful language is unfit for public office,” Murphy said in the statement. “If indeed that is Sheriff Saudino’s voice on the recording, he must resign.”Grewal also tweeted that he surmised it was Saudino’s voice after listening to the recording.In a statement, Saudino apologized, saying the remarks “are not representative” of who he is and are “in no way consistent with the manner” in which he has conducted his life personally and professionally, according to NJ.com.“In an effort to repair the damage to the friendships that I have built with these communities I have reached out directly to several respected leaders in the communities I have offended and I have personally offered my apologizes and I have asked for their forgiveness and for their communities’ forgiveness,” he said.Saudino did not mention in the statement whether he is going to step down.A representative for the Bergen County Sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco echoed Murphy’s statement, saying that he was “shocked and disappointed to hear these comments” and that he has worked with the sheriff “for years.”“Bergen County’s diversity is our strength and his statements are clearly inconsistent with our values,” Tedesco said in a statement to ABC News. “In the best interest of the public, he should step down.”This isn’t the first time Grewal, the first Sikh in the country to hold office as attorney general, has dealt with racist comments made publicly.In July, he was referred to as “turban man” by two conservative talk radio hosts on “The Dennis & Judy Show” on New Jersey 101.5 radio.Grewal took to Twitter to respond to the radio hosts, saying he told his three daughters to turn off the radio the day they made the remarks.Saudino, an elected official, is serving his third term, according to his biography on the Bergen County Sheriff’s Office website. He became sheriff in 2011, has been working in law enforcement for 41 years, and has lived in Bergen County for 53 years, his biography states.Bergen County is New Jersey’s most populated county, and its sheriff’s office is the largest law enforcement agency in the state, with about 600 employees — all of whom are led by Saudino, according to WNYC. His responsibilities also includes assisting municipal police departments and running the Bergen County Jail, among others, WNYC reported.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Maria Sharapova on the worst advice she never took: ‘It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish’

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailJoe Faraoni / ESPN Images(NEW YORK) — Maria Sharapova always has a vision. Whether she’s on the tennis court, running her company, Sugarpova, or writing a bestselling book, the champion athlete has been successful by always staying focused on her end goal throughout every step of her journey.“I have a clear path of what I want to achieve in the end, and no matter where I am at, the beginning of it, the middle of it, I always go back to ‘What it was I thinking, what was my path? What was my thinking from the original starting point? And am I still on the same track?” Sharapova told ABC News’ Rebecca Jarvis on an episode of the “No Limits with Rebecca Jarvis” podcast.Her method has paid off. At 32-years-old, she has had more success than most people achieve over an entire lifetime. She became a professional tennis player at the age of 14, won Wimbledon only three years later, and has been ranked No. 1 in the world by the World Tennis Association five separate times. She is also a New York Times bestselling author and the founder and CEO of her premium candy line, Sugarpova.A common thread throughout these achievements is always her vision. Sharapova’s focus has been one of her biggest strengths since she started playing tennis as a child. She remembers at six years old being able to concentrate on hitting a tennis ball over and over again, in a way that stood out among the other children her age.Laying the foundation for her career from a young age was integral for her, and when she thinks about the worst advice she’s ever received, it was when people told her, “it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.” She disagreed. For Sharapova, a strong and clear beginning is essential for a positive outcome, whether in sports or business.“The beginning is one of the most important parts of a journey … And so in my career, before you make that first step, you have to do so much due diligence. You have to put in so much work and effort, put in the right team, the frame of mind, and the hours of repetition in order to have a great beginning and the better the beginning, the better the end.”Hear more from Maria Sharapova on episode #134 of the “No Limits with Rebecca Jarvis” podcast.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
