Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Peter Stephens | Monday, 25th January, 2021 While inflation is currently relatively low, the importance of obtaining a growing passive income could increase over the coming years. Monetary policy has been accommodative for many years, and may cause a faster-rising price level over the long run.As such, buying dividend shares with affordable shareholder payouts, the right strategies to deliver growth and that have the capacity to benefit from industry growth trends could be a sound move. It may produce a rising income to complement a high yield.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 low dividend payout ratioAlthough a low dividend payout ratio doesn’t guarantee a fast-paced rise in passive income, it suggests that a company may be able to afford a larger shareholder payout. It’s calculated by dividing dividends paid by net profit to give a percentage figure. Less than 100% shows the company paid a lower amount than its net profit as a dividend.Of course, a company may have a low payout ratio for reasons including a strategy of reinvesting for growth. This may mean its capacity to raise dividends may be limited. However, over the long run, a business with a very affordable dividend may have greater capacity to increase shareholder payouts without necessarily requiring a rapid rise in earnings to pay for it.A strategy aimed at growing a passive incomeThe decision to pay a larger dividend rests with company management and directors. Therefore, it could be a prudent move to analyse their strategy with regard to obtaining a growing passive income. For example, they may have a track record of increasing dividends at a fast pace that could suggest, but not guarantee, that a similar strategy may be used in future.Furthermore, a company with a sound growth strategy that can lead to rising profitability may be able to reward shareholders via a larger dividend. As such, it can make sense to analyse a company’s annual report and latest updates to gauge its overall strategy with regards to dividends, as well as its overall operations.Investing in industries with growth potentialClearly, companies that offer the prospect of a rising passive income are likely to require a growing bottom line to pay for it. As such, buying companies in industries with attractive growth opportunities could be a sound move. This doesn’t always mean companies operating within such sectors will deliver dividend growth. But it may provide a greater opportunity for them to do so versus industries with less upbeat prospects.Through buying stocks with attractive long-term futures, it may be possible to increase the chances of obtaining dividend growth. This may lead to a rise in spending power in the coming years. And that could become increasingly important should inflation increase in response to a loose monetary policy.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice S Vishwajith Shetty said “State will have to take a call. Even yesterday 488 cases were recorded. Everyday cases are rising and you are allowing rallies to be held, people are not wearing masks. You have to deal with heavy hands, numbers are increasing.” During the hearing of a petition filed by Letzkit foundation, the bench took exception to the memo filed by the State government in which it stated that a medical officer of the BBMP had imposed and collected a fine of Rs 10,000 from the organisers of the rally held on February 21 for violation of norms regarding social distancing and wearing of masks. The bench went through the amended provisions of the Karnataka Epidemic Diseases (Amendment) Act, 2020, which provides for punishment by way of fine instead of imprisonment for violation of COVID19 norms said “A medical officer of BBMP has no right to accept compounding fee. No authority is there to compound, so you must register FIR.” The court was of the view that a penalty can be imposed by an executive officer but when it comes to punishment it has to be by a court. In its order the court said: “The memo filed by the state govt talks about violation of provisions of the said Act of 2020 and payment of fine amount. The question is whether in this case offense under sub section 1 of section 4 was attracted which is punishable by section 3 (A) of section 5.If this is a case of violation covered by sub section 1 of section 5, criminal law will have to be set in motion. No doubt section 10, allows compounding of offence punishable under sub section 3 A of section 5. Either before or after initiating prosecution. The compounding can be made by such an officer authorized by the government on payment of such amount as may be notified by the government”. The bench then directed the state government to take a definite stand in this case, if offence under sub section (1) of section 5 is attracted and whether offence has been compounded in the manner provided under sub section (1) of section 10, of the said Act of 2020, as amended. The State govt will clarify this aspect by filing an affidavit. It orally observed “People break the law by moving without wearing a mask. Take action, call upon them to compound the offence. Some message has to go that people have to wear masks”. The bench also directed the respondent 5, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to in a week’s time, make a simple statement on oath in terms of directions issued to party workers/followers to follow norms while holding of functions/rallies, etc. The party has sought ten days time to make the same which the court denied. The court also directed the registry to issue notice to the secretary of political party Janata Dal (S) who is respondent 9 and directed him to appear before the court either through advocate or in person through video conferencing on the next date of hearing, March 24Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
