2020 has so far been no ordinary year. Politicians, economists, almost everyone, including FTSE 100 investors, would accept that the Covid-19 pandemic has come with substantial health and economic costs. In May, the Bank of England warned the UK economy will likely head toward one of the worst recessions on record. Various lifelines have been offered to individuals and industries by the government. They are likely to make the potential economic damage less severe than it could otherwise have been. However, hardly any business or industry will be fully immune to a recession. But some may fare better than others. So today, I’d like to discuss three industries that may help you recession-proof your portfolio. Within the industries, I’ll bring to your attention companies that pay dividends.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…Health care is typically recession-proofThe current pandemic has reminded billions around the world of the importance of health. FTSE 100 investors have access to a wide range of healthcare stocks. AstraZeneca is now our largest company, followed by GlaxoSmithKline. Both have enviable drug pipelines. They have also been in the news with their current work on a potential vaccine against the coronavirus. At present their current dividend yields are 2.6% and 5.1% respectively. You may also want to research medical equipment manufacturer Smith & Nephew. It specialises in surgical devices and joint replacement systems. Its dividend yield is 1.9%. The other company to keep on your radar screen is London-based Hikma Pharmaceuticals. It manufactures non-branded generic and in-license medicines and offers a dividend yield of 1.6%.We all rely on utilitiesIncome investors typically love big utility companies for dividends. But in addition to the passive income, those FTSE 100 shares may also help your portfolio handle an upcoming recession. After all, we all need to use electricity, gas and water to continue our lives.Multinational electricity and gas utility company National Grid has operations both in the UK and the US. Severn Trent provides water and waste water treatment and operating services to utilities, municipalities and commercial customers. Exeter-based Pennon Group is another water utility and waste management firm. Warrington-based United Utilities is the country’s largest listed water company. With respective dividend yields of 5.5%, 4.2%, 4.1% and 4.9%, they all remain favourites among investors.FTSE 100 is home to sin stocksSin products typically include gambling, tobacco, and alcohol. Due to the addictive nature of these products, sin shares are usually considered recession-proof. These companies can typically manage their cash flow levels and expected returns in economic downturns better than many other businesses.Drinks giant Diageo owns some of the most widely-recognised brands. They include Johnnie Walker, Smirnoff, Captain Morgan, Baileys, Don Julio, and Guinness. Tobacco giant British American Tobacco is one of the largest is FTSE 100 constituents. Both companies have increasing overseas operations, especially in emerging countries. Their respective dividend yields stand at 2.5% and 7.3%.With its dividend yield of 1.9%, Flutter Entertainment is another stock to watch. It is one of the world’s largest gaming groups. Since March, sports fixtures have been cancelled worldwide. Yet as economies begin to open up, the company is likely to see revenue growth in the coming months.Foolish takeawayAs a potential recession approaches, investors may want to turn to stocks that offer revenue stability and earnings growth. I believe such FTSE 100 shares should be part of prudent investors’ portfolios. 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.

Enter Your Email Address Image source: Getty Images Royston Wild | Sunday, 18th October, 2020 £5k to invest? I think these property investment trusts could help UK share investors get rich Real estate investment trusts (REITs) are insanely popular with UK share investors. They allow individuals to get exposure to the property market without the hassle of having to buy, manage, or fund any bricks-and-mortar assets themselves. And the way they are regulated means that they can deliver stunning income flows to their investors.However, not all REITs are in strong shape to provide UK share investors with stunning returns today. Here I’m going to discuss three dividend-paying REITs and consider whether you should buy or avoid them.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…2 top property stocksI reckon Urban Logistics REIT has the tools to deliver stunning profits over the next decade. It provides large logistics facilities all over the UK, so it is well placed to ride the e-commerce phenomenon. But this is not all. The bulk of its 30-plus properties are located in and around the Midlands and the South East. These regions suffer particularly badly from the supply crunch besetting this specific segment of the property market. And this is allowing it to maximise rental income. Today the UK share carries a decent-if-unspectacular forward dividend yield of 2.7%. However, for those seeking strong dividend growth in the years ahead I reckon Urban Logistics could prove to be a winner.I wouldn’t consider investing in Secure Income REIT, though, even though it sports a 5.7% dividend yield for 2020. The company is exposed to a number of cyclical sectors, and this bodes badly as the economy sinks and Covid-19 restrictions are reimposed. The UK share’s had to defer rents from Merlin Entertainments, for instance, until next autumn. The theme park operator is Secure Income’s biggest client by rent. It’s also had to reduce rents from Travelodge, another major rent payer. Like all REITs the business has to pay 90% of profits to shareholders through dividends. But with earnings threatening to fall through the floor this income share is a risk too far, in my opinion.I’d much rather stash the cash in Civitas Social Housing today. This particular property investment trust invests in social housing for individuals with specific care needs. As a consequence this UK share has exceptional profits visibility through economic upturns and downturns. And this gives it the confidence to pay big dividends to its shareholders, hence the company’s 5.2% dividend yield for this fiscal year. As Civitas non-executive chair Richard Wrobel has commented, the specialist assisted living segment is “one of the fastest growing sub–sectors in healthcare real estate”. And this makes the business one of the hottest property plays out there.More top UK sharesI strongly believe Civitas and Urban Logistics could make investors a lot of money in the years ahead. But they’re not the only UK shares that could supercharge the returns you enjoy on your invested cash.

Howard Lake | 11 March 2009 | News Fundraising response forms adapting to recession, says Tick Box Report Tagged with: Individual giving recession Research / statistics AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Printed fundraising response materials are changing, according to the Tick Box Report 2009 from advertising and marketing consultant Andrew Papworth. The changes are likely to be reactions to the recession, he argues.The 120-page report analyses the design of 191 reply forms and coupons in loose inserts, mailshots and and newspaper and magazine adverts published in 2008-09 and designed to raise funds for 105 organisations.Papworth has found that the trend away from asking for one-off donations and towards asking for regular direct debit payments reversed during 2008/09. This could be because fundraisers assume that people are currently less willing to commit to regular giving when their own incomes could be in doubt.But Papworth suggests another reason. Whereas in the past fundraisers were happy to achieve lower response rates for regular giving appeals, given the lifetime value of such donors, now they are more keen simply to achieve a higher volume of response, so appeals for one-off gifts become more likely.The report also found that the range of asks for one-off gifts tends to be much larger than for regular direct debits. Although the typical asks are not very different – about £20 for one-off gifts and £2 or £3 per month for direct debits (equivalent to £24 to £36 per annum) – Papworth suggests it is not uncommon for the range of one-off asks to go up to over £1000, whereas the highest ask for direct debits was £24 per month (or £288 per year).“Whether £24 per month is a realistic limit for regular giving is open to testing,” said Papworth. “Clearly some people – even in these straitened times – could well afford £100 per month for a cause close to their hearts. It could be a case of if you don’t ask, you don’t get.”He points out that one charity, Centrepoint, has adopted a tactic which could be developed further. “They say that £12 per month will sponsor a room for a homeless person and £24 will sponsor two such rooms. There is an interesting idea here which could be adapted and extended by other fundraisers.”In the report Papworth questions the lack of choice typically given to donors. “Coupons and reply forms tend to force supporters down one channel – either into one-off gifts or regular giving,” he said. “This could be a big mistake. It’s hard work attracting attention and getting read. Once you’ve achieved the hard part, it makes sense to enable readers to express their support in one of a number of ways.”Papworth also suggests that some membership and sponsorship organisations could be missing a trick in not offering an opportunity to donate without, or as well as, joining or sponsoring. He counsels against newspaper and magazine adverts that rely purely on a phone number of website as a response channel. “Apart from the fact that some people prefer the post,” he said, “the addition of a coupon flags the fact that the ad is inviting a response.”Overall, the report indicates that fundraising print could be much more user-friendly. “You’d think that relationship marketing had never happened,” said Papworth. “Reply addresses are corporate and impersonal; there are very few ‘thank yous’; there’s not much promise of feedback on how donations will be spent; premium telephone numbers are used with no explanation of cost and too often a donor who cuts out and sends off a coupon is left with no means of contact.”The Tick Box Report 2009 is designed to offer a benchmark of current practice and to indicate possible improvements based on examples which depart from the norm. It includes 27 detailed data tables and 42 charts.It is available at £70 per copy from Andrew Papworth at [email protected] 66 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

To many the phrase “burning river” might seem like an oxymoron. Rivers are water, and water is used to extinguish fires. But June 22 marked the 50th anniversary of the famous Cuyahoga River fire. That day in 1969, when flammable pollutants floating in the river were ignited by a spark made by a passing train, is forever etched in Cleveland’s historical memory. The flames, reaching five stories high, subsequently brought down the railroad bridge. No photos are known to exist of this catastrophic event.That was the 13th time the Cuyahoga caught fire. The first time was in 1868. Five people were burned to death in 1912, and the 1952 fire caused $1.3 million worth of damage. As the city became a manufacturing center, executives at profit-hungry companies, such as U.S. Steel, Republic Steel, Jones & Laughlin Steel, Sherwin-Williams and John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil, thought nothing of dumping waste in the river. The river burned under the shadow of Republic Steel.After residents complained of foul-tasting drinking water, tests done as early as 1922 determined: “The polluted water of the Cuyahoga River reached the water works intakes, and this polluted water contained the material which caused the obnoxious taste.” (Smithsonian, June 19) Yet by 1969, no corporations had ever been held accountable for their environmental recklessness. One elected official who voiced concern about pollution was Mayor Carl B. Stokes, the first African-American elected mayor in a major U.S. city. In 1968, with his backing, voters overwhelmingly passed a $100 million bond initiative to fund efforts to clean up the Cuyahoga. Stokes held a press conference at the river’s edge the day after the fire.The fire drew attention to the crises of pollution threatening the country’s air, land and water — and it gave impetus to the environmental movement. This movement emerged in tandem with powerful struggles against racism, sexism, gay oppression (as LGBTQ2S+ was referred to then), imperialist war and other injustices. Cleveland has played an important role in the radical movement. The city hosted many anti-war conferences. The 1966 Hough Rebellion and 1968 Glenville Rebellion shook up the racist power structure. The city was also the site of the first Earth Day in April 1970, when 1,000 Cleveland State University students held a teach-in and marched from their campus to the river to protest pollution.Congressmember Louis Stokes, the mayor’s brother, helped push the creation of the Environmental Protection Agency in 1970. Under pressure from the mass ecology movement, Congress passed the Clean Water Act in 1972 and overrode President Richard Nixon’s veto of the bill.Another dirty legacy: racismThe name Cuyahoga was appropriated from an Iroquois language, spoken by the Indigenous peoples of the area before colonization. It may be a distortion of the Mohawk word Cuyagaga, which means “crooked,” or of Cuyohaga, the Seneca word meaning “place of the jawbone.” (Encyclopedia of Cleveland History) The river briefly defined the western border of the U.S. until — as with every other treaty between European and Indigenous peoples — white settlers broke the Treaty of Greenville and pushed westward. As settlements expanded on both sides of the Cuyahoga, the crooked, winding river divided the city into East and West sides. The river represents another ugly feature of Cleveland history: racist segregation. When African Americans came north seeking industrial jobs, they were largely concentrated on the East Side. Decades later, they still crossed the bridge with trepidation to enter the West Side, where the white population lived. with trepidation.Hough, originally a wealthy enclave, was later a place of refuge for Jewish immigrants after World War II. By the early 1960s, it had become an impoverished Black neighborhood. by the early 1960s. There, Civil Rights protesters were arrested in 1964 when they lay down in a ditch to protest construction of a segregated school, a project that froze Black workers out of building trades jobs. Rev. Bruce Klunder lay down behind a bulldozer. The operator backed up over the activist minister and killed him instantly.Conditions in segregated housing became a major subject of the 1966 U.S. Civil Rights Commission hearings. In April of that year, a public inquiry heard testimony about the terrible living conditions for Hough’s Black residents. Two months later, Hough exploded in a rebellion initially triggered by racist abuse of Black patrons at a white-owned bar. The Ohio National Guard crushed the rebellion on July 24, four days after it began, leaving four Black Clevelanders dead.The 1967 election of Mayor Stokes, who garnered support on both sides of the Cuyahoga, was a historic blow against racism. The whole city benefited from his work against pollution. 50 years after the fire“Riverfest,” held on this year’s anniversary of the fire, celebrated the Cuyahoga’s comeback. The river that was once declared dead, and unable to sustain life in any form, now teems with fish and attracts canoers, kayakers and even swimmers.However, there are serious environmental issues facing Cleveland and the whole Great Lakes region. Water levels reached record highs this spring in Lake Erie at the mouth of the Cuyahoga. This posed the danger of flooding, such as Lake Ontario has experienced in the past two years, as well as soil erosion.Like the century-long period when the Cuyahoga was a floating fire hazard, this new hazard to the environment is not the result of natural causes. Climate change has caused unnatural highs and lows in the water levels of the Great Lakes. A June 8 article in Scientific American explained: “As researchers specializing in hydrology and climate science, we believe rapid transitions between extreme high and low water levels in the Great Lakes represent the ‘new normal.’ Our view is based on interactions between global climate variability and the components of the regional hydrological cycle. Increasing precipitation, the threat of recurring periods of high evaporation and a combination of both routine and unusual climate events — such as extreme cold air outbursts — are putting the region in uncharted territory.”Climate change, like pollution, is the result of human activity, specifically production for profit. Historically and today, the fossil fuel industry barons, including the greedy Rockefellers, have demonstrated wanton disregard for the health of the planet.The cleaner air and water in Cleveland is in no small part due to deindustrialization. Most automobile, steel and machine tool factories have closed, and those still standing are automated. The largest employers are now primarily in government and health care sectors, based on the number of full-time employees.While the environment has benefited to a degree from some deindustrialization, to a degree, the drastic loss of manufacturing jobs has devastated Cuyahoga County economically. Child poverty in Cleveland is even higher than in Detroit. Hardest hit is the still-segregated — or as some studies say “hypersegregated” — East Side where African-Americans have the highest poverty rate. The impact of the foreclosure crisis is clearly visible. The high rate of lead poisoning among Black children is caused by lead paint used in old rental homes poorly maintained by landlords. This is environmental racism. The multiple crises facing this city, once defined by its crooked river, are all consequences of the crooked system of capitalist exploitation. What is happening in Cleveland is happening worldwide as corporate profiteers destroy nature and pauperize workers and oppressed people. Getting rid of capitalism is the only way to fix the problems it creates. The city of Cleveland has a proud history of fightback against this system — from the 1936-37 General Motors strikes to the Hough Rebellion — and it will be a fighting force in the class struggles ahead.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
