5 high-yield UK REITs I’d buy in June

Tom Rodgers | Friday, 29th May, 2020 | More on: SHED See all posts by Tom Rodgers UK REITs make for a sensible investment, I feel. If you’re not convinced about the rampant optimism pushing the FTSE 100 north of 6,000 points, especially so.That’s because REITs — real estate investment trusts — have to pay out at least 90% of their income to shareholders in dividends. For you, this means a steady income stream through a variety of conditions. Markets flying? You get paid. Markets crashing? You get paid.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…Most UK REITs buy up and rent out commercial property. They get tenants on long leases, which gives them strong visibility on future earnings.And the dividend yields on offer can be pretty spectacular.But picking the right REIT is a matter of thinking clearly about the sectors that will benefit from wider market conditions. Retail REITs that own shopping centres are a big no-no at the moment, for example. No Newriver REIT, then.I’d look instead to the rapid growth of online shopping.Logistics REITsAlongside taking a slice of Amazon profits with the quality FTSE 100 fund Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust, I’d be looking at the back end. The order pickers. Those UK REITs that own and rent out giant logistics warehouses.Tritax Big Box REIT rents its mammoth warehouses to the US e-commerce giant, as well as consumer staples behemoths Unilever and Tesco. The 5.1% yield Warehouse REIT is another popular choice and its share price has rocketed back to pre-crash levels. But a price tag of 18 times earnings may be a little steep for some.I think you should be looking at Urban Logistics REIT (LSE:SHED) too.In 2019, SHED had reported a near-doubling of its profits from £9.8m to £18.7m. And 2020 year-end results on 29 May showed a 20% hike in rental income and a 21% jump in earnings. It added 8% to dividends per share to reach 7.6p. That’s a healthy 5.3% yield with much further to grow.It also has significant financial firepower. In April bosses snapped up seven distribution centres for £47m in centres including Aberdeen and Plymouth and added a £13m West Yorkshire NHS distribution centre to its portfolio.CEO Richard Moffitt pointed out that Covid-19 had highlighted the importance of ‘last-mile’ distribution of essential goods. “This company is the only listed business giving investors ‘pure play’ exposure to urban logistics assets,” he added.Navigate wiselyOne thing to watch closely with such companies is the premium or discount to Net Asset Value (NAV). Every financial quarter, managers will tot up the value of all the assets a REIT owns. NAV equals the market value of a REIT’s total assets (mostly property, plus any cash it has) minus the value of its liabilities, such as mortgage payments and the like.Care home investors like Impact Healthcare REIT present a long-term high-yield choice. This one pays out a 6.6% yield and will cost you just 9 times earnings, for example. An even stronger choice, for me, would be Target Healthcare REIT. It offers a healthy 6.3% dividend yield and is trading at an 8.2% discount to NAV. This is right up my street. Its share price in the last year has been at a 5.6% premium to NAV. Investors willing to pay more than the sum of its parts? That shows confidence is strong in its future.I honestly believe a portion of your portfolio should be invested in UK REITs.

Video: Presiding Bishop’s Easter Day sermon at Salisbury Cathedral

first_img Rector Knoxville, TN Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Tampa, FL Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY [Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori preached at Salisbury Cathedral in England during the Easter Day Eucharist service. She preached and led services at various times at Salisbury Cathedral during Holy Week 2015 at the invitation of the Very Rev. June Osborne, dean.The full text of her Easter Day sermon follows.Easter Day5 April 2015Salisbury Cathedral, 10:30 amThe Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal ChurchAlleuia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed. Alleluia!Jesus Christ is risen today – the beloved son, in whom God is indeed well pleased. Christ is risen among us. The grain of wheat has been threshed and exposed, then laid in the ground to die. In the winter of death that life giving seed went far below, into the fires of hell, to comb the ashes for other lives long laid in darkness. God’s life-giving power will not be denied. Jesus’ search of hell brings forth life, damps the heat for lively use, to raise this bread. Smell the sweet savor of yeasty risen life in this place, in this beloved community wedded together in God’s love, Jesus’ life given for the world.See life and hope in the faces of newest members of this body, and in the lined and white-haired seers who keep finding home here, year by year by year. Christ is risen again in this, his body, given to honor the poor, heal the hurting, and feed a hungry world. This body is a microcosm, but we cannot stay here; God’s larger creation calls us to keep rising and expanding, to share that new life with abandon near and far beyond this place.This risen body springs from the side of the crucified one – a river of new life, gushing forth to satisfy the world’s thirst. That fount of new life overflows into the members of this body, and it is meant to keep overflowing, a river running out into the desert, to the sere and dessicated, to hopeless hearts, to wash the dirt from clouded eyes and sooty souls, to soothe the pain and flood the violence around us with peace.This living water is meant to overwhelm death. When you go from this place today, don’t just look at that lovely water in the font. Stick your arm in – up to the elbow! Get wet enough to re-member yourself as part of the living body sent to give life to this world. We are born again today for life abundant. Share that water – that’s why there is such a ridiculously lavish well of water! Get wet – and get someone else wet, too. That river is flowing out into the world – carry it out in your hand and your heart – and pour it over the next cracked and bleeding soul you meet.This is not a day to “Keep Calm and Carry On.” It is a day to rejoice with wild abandon, for death is conquered, hell and darkness banished, light and life has come into the world. It’s a day to be a fool for Christ. The Orthodox insist that the Resurrection is God’s cosmic joke on the devil – so rejoice and carry on – with mirth and deep joy!Let the joy you meet here today mend the broken places within you – for those cracks and wounds are entrances for the risen one. Just as he goes below to recover the lost, he will enter if you unbar the gate. Then let the new life you receive this day help mend the broken places in the world around us. For as Jesus says, ‘I am the gate for the sheep,’[1] this living, risen body of Christ is meant to be the gate to new and risen life for all – this body is risen to open doors and unlock prisons, beginning with rejoicing here and carrying that risen, rising life into all the world’s places of death, despair, and destruction.We are the risen body Christ has wedded together in a loaf of life. We are to be living water for a parched and dusty world. We are branches of the true vine, yielding fruit for the wedding feast of God’s beloved family. We are to follow Jesus into the hells of this world to bring out forgotten inmates, despised immigrants, refused asylum seekers and refugees. We are to call all creatures beloved of God, and to know that of ourselves.We have come here today to be fed and watered, to be inspired and healed, to be revived, but not to stay or hold this body fast.When Mary Magdalene comes to the tomb in grief and despair, its emptiness compounds her own, and the loss of even his mortal frame adds to the cruelty. Yet the empty tomb becomes an echo chamber for good news: “why weep?” they ask. He is not here! Why weep, indeed? The gardener himself is risen, like wheat that springeth green.[2] What joy she feels! As she reaches out, he warns, “No, don’t cling to me. But go, go and tell my brothers I am ascending.” Let go the strings, dear Mary, find your voice and your feet, go and share the news of rising life. The bridegroom is leaving his earthly home to cling to the world for which he has given his body in troth.[3] And now, as his body has been broken, this loaf must also break and be sent out with good news of great joy.The Orthodox call Mary “apostle to the apostles,” the first one sent to teach the truth of new and risen life. She shared that truth, and the risen Lord appeared and shared it himself, until a small band of frightened human beings began to find their courage, and re-member who he had been among them, and what he had shown and taught. He continued to eat with them and encourage them until he returned to the Godhead, and sent the yeasty spirit to enliven us to the end of the ages. This body here cannot contain that living presence – we cannot cling here; we must go and share good news of rising joy.Rejoice, believers, he is risen! Be at peace, go in peace, and be his peace in the world. Be of good courage – remember you are beloved, and Christ will strengthen you. Hold fast to what is good, and die to what is not. Honor the body of God’s creation with your own body. Rejoice, give thanks, and make a feast, for God is with us. Death no more has dominion; light abounds in the heavens and on earth; we are raised with Christ, to be-love and befriend the world he cherishes for eternity.Alleluia! Christ is risen![1] John 10:9[2] “Now the green blade riseth” John MacLeod Campbell Crum (1872-1958). Cf. http://www.umcdiscipleship.org/resources/history-of-hymns-now-the-green-blade-riseth[3] Cf. Genesis 2:24 April 7, 2015 at 12:13 pm Beautifully said, Bishop Katharine! Alleluia!

Other students, like seniors Stephanie Shady and Courtney Cochran, who have had their lives affected by suicide of loved ones, also attended the run.“I think it’s really awesome that there a lot of TCU students are here because it shows that a lot of people are supporting talking about the problem, which I think is the first step to fixing it,” Cochran said.Shady and Cochran said that they were pleased with how many of their fellow students came to raise awareness.“I think you don’t think about when you walk around campus how many people mental health actually touches,” Shady said, “and it’s nice to see that there are other people on campus to kind of be a community for that.”Of the 298 students that participated in the run, 120 of them were members of TCU’s Delta Delta Delta chapter that rallied to support one of their sisters who lost her mother to suicide.“It’s a lot of Delta love coming together and its really lifting her up, which is what she needs right now,” Stephanie McNamara, a member of the sorority, said.At the end of the race, TCU was awarded for having the largest team participate.It is an accomplishment that Cortney Gumbleton, TCU’s Suicide Prevention Outreach Coordinator, said she is extremely proud of.“Mental health issues and suicide has affected our community, and I’m honored that 298 TCU members joined together to support those who are struggling and those who we have lost to suicide,” Gumbleton said.

A division bench of Chief Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Suraj Govindaraj in their order said “We have perused the report submitted by Soumendu Mukherjee IPS, head of Special Investigation Team (SIT), which is investigating into three crimes, three separate reports are submitted, pointing out steps taken in investigation. After having perused the said three reports we find that as of today it is not necessary to consider the prayer for transfer of investigation.” It added “List the petitions for further hearing on May 31, when further report shall be filed by head of SIT in sealed cover. Status report tendered today shall be re-sealed and kept on record.” The direction was given during the hearing of two petitions filed by Advocate Geetha Misra and Advocate S Umesh. A prayer is made in the petition filed by Umesh seeking to transfer the investigation in the case to the CBI. Both the petitions have claimed that police officials have leaked sensitive investigation details to media personnel with an ulterior motive and contrary to the dictum of the Apex Court. Issuing notice to the respondents on April 5, the court had directed the respondent (SIT) to place on record in sealed cover, report on investigation so far carried out. The petition filed by Misra seeks to quash the quashing the order passed by the 2nd Respondent Commissioner of Police dated 11/03/2021 forming a Special Investigation Team (SIT) comprising of Six(6) police officers to conduct investigation as the same is without application of mind and without quoting provisions of law and without there being an Government Order or Gazette Notification as the same is in gross abuse of law inasmuch as colossal waste of money from government exchequer. During the hearing, counsel B V Shankaranarayana Rao appearing for petitioner Umesh referred to the judgments passed by the Bombay High Court on January 18, on a clutch of PILs regarding ‘media trials’ in the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Referring to paragraphs 349 and 350 of the said judgement, he sought for regulation on content being aired by news channels. To which the bench said “Point out any instance of violation. You will have to make out a case that in the facts of this case something has happened that you will have to demonstrate before us. Show us the statutory powers vesting in the government under which they can take action against the media.” The matter will be next heard on May 31. Next Storylast_img read more

Man hit, killed by Southwest plane as it landed after security breach at Austin airport

first_imgBoarding1Now/iStockBy ALEX STONE, MINA KAJI and AMANDA MAILE, ABC News(AUSTIN, Texas) — A man was struck and killed by a Southwest Airlines plane as it was landing on the runway of Austin-Bergstrom International Airport late Thursday, according to airport officials.The man who died was not an employee at the airport and hopped the perimeter fence to gain access to the runway, Austin airport spokesperson Bryce Dubee confirmed to ABC News.“We are treating it as a security breach,” Dubee said. “This is the first time we’ve had a runway incursion like this. We have had the occasional security breach, but no one has ever gotten onto an active runway at the airport.”The Transportation Security Administration said in a statement on Friday that it “is conducting a check of the perimeter of the airport property with the airport’s security team.”The pilot of the Southwest flight from Dallas to Austin reported the man on the runway to air traffic control after it was cleared to land.“Where exactly do you see the man?” the controller asked.“They are behind us now,” the pilot said.Southwest Airlines said in a statement to ABC News that the aircraft “maneuvered to avoid an individual who became visible” shortly after the the Boeing 737 touched down.Austin Police Department’s airport unit later discovered “an obviously deceased adult male” on the runway, a spokesperson for the police department said.The scene was cleared overnight, according to an airport official, and the runway reopened early Friday morning.Southwest said none of the 59 people on board the flight were injured in the incident and that it is fully cooperating with local law enforcement and the Federal Aviation Administration.FAA investigators deployed to the scene last night. The agency has not confirmed whether or not the aircraft struck the victim.A spokesperson from the National Transportation Safety Board said it is still gathering information and has not launched an official investigation at this time.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
