Should I ignore the falling GlaxoSmithKline share price and pocket its 6% yield anyway?

Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Many people assume the pandemic would be positive for pharmaceutical stocks but the falling GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) share price tells a different story. It has now trading 25% lower than a year ago.While you should treat past performance with caution, this is both surprising and disappointing. It’s not a one-off fall either. The GlaxoSmithKline share price has gone precisely nowhere, measured over five years. Despite that, the FTSE 100 pharma giant remains one of the UK’s most popular stocks, lauded for its thumping dividend yield. Should I buy Glaxo for the income, or shun it after the share price slump?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…Right now, Glaxo yields 5.86%. That is a terrific level of income, especially today. You cannot directly compare a dividend yield to the interest rate on cash, as the latter is pretty much guaranteed. However, Glaxo’s yield looks tempting at a time when the average easy access account pays just 0.18%.I’m checking out the GlaxoSmithKline share priceYields are funny things, though. They are calculated by dividing a company’s dividend per share, against its share price. Right now, Glaxo’s dividend per share stands at 80p, while its share price is 1,365p. So 80/1,356 = 5.86.When a company’s share price is falling, as seen with GlaxoSmithKline, the yield rises (all things being equal). So a high yield is often the sign of a struggling company, rather than a thriving one.Glaxo certainly faces challenges right now, as Credit Suisse has just noted. It highlighted poor R&D productivity, and said management needs to invest more in the drugs pipeline. Another worry is that its shingles vaccine, Shingrix, cannot be taken alongside the Covid-19 vaccine. This will hit a key source of revenue growth, especially if populations need to be vaccinated year after year.Here’s another reason why the GlaxoSmithKline share price is under pressure. CEO Emma Walmsley is planning to spin off its consumer joint venture with Pfizer. Credit Suisse has warned this could threaten shareholder payouts, as Glaxo’s biopharma operation “would need to pay out 84% of earnings to maintain its 80p dividend”.The GlaxoSmithKline share price is not falling by accident. FTSE 100 rival AstraZeneca‘s share price has scarcely dipped over the last 12 months, and is up 80% measured over five years. Still a top FTSE 100 dividend stockThat said, many investors like buying companies that have suffered short-term setbacks, because they are often available at bargain prices. Currently, the GlaxoSmithKline share price trades at just 11 times earnings, which is one of the lowest valuations I can remember.Earnings growth has been slowing, though. In 2016, earnings grew 35% but this has since slowed to 9%, 7%, and 4% a year. The trajectory is clear.I would never buy the GlaxoSmithKline share price with a short-term view, or any stock for that matter. I look to hold it for at least five years, and ideally 10 or 20 years. Over that time scale, today’s worries will seem like a blip. But today’s buyers will continue to benefit from today’s low entry price.I find myself tempted by the falling GlaxoSmithKline share price. Even more so by its yield. Even if it cuts its dividend, I should still get a generous level of income.

Fair Oaks and Raymond) on Saturday, November 21, from 10 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.. It has been organized by the N. Fair Oaks Empowerment Initiative which is sponsored by the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance (IMA).“This community and the people who live here are the heart of Pasadena,” said City Councilman Tyron Hampton. “It’s not just ‘Northwest Pasadena.’ This is a hard working community.” Hampton sees the N. Fair Oaks Jobfest and Empowerment Initiative as an opportunity to bring about positive change.“North Fair Oaks is a place where people speed past on their way to somewhere else, not noticing how God is at work,” said Dr. Jill Shook, long-term community resident who helped to start the N. Fair Oaks Initiative and is helping coordinate the Northwest Jobfest. “Our team has worked diligently to plan this fair; and in the process we are learning about the many gifts and resources that defy the negative perception of this stretch of N. Fair Oaks.”“This is an opportunity to put into action something that will make a significant impact,” said Pastor John Bledsoe, President of IMA. The IMA has organized job fairs for the past five years, but this one is on a much larger scale and involves the whole community on N Fair Oaks from Howard to Woodbury.A mobile employment unit will provide support for writing resumes and immediate application to jobs via internet. There will be free dress shirts for first 10 job seekers provided by Tyron Hampton (District One City Councilmember) as well as health and housing services, tattoo removal, and opportunities for residents to share their talents and dreams for the community. There will also be a video game truck, bounce house, free hot dogs, free ice cream for kids, door prizes (TV and bike), community-building booths (face-painting, auditions to be on the stage, free haircuts, entertainment, folkloric dance and more). Local talent will offer music, dance and poetry.Pastors and community leaders will take part, including Mayor Tornek, City Manager Michael Beck and state assemblyman Chris Holden. City Councilmember Tyron Hampton said, “My office has made a commitment to this event because of the people of this great community. Their engagement and commitment to this initiative has been an inspiration to my team.”According to Dr. Shook, the goal of the N. Fair Oaks Empowerment Initiative is to help promote businesses, churches and non-profits between Howard and Woodbury on N. Fair Oaks as well as help improve this area. A hundred and fifty surveys were conducted from April to July asking the businesses, residents and churches about their concerns and dreams, and if they wanted to be part of planning this year’s fair. Survey results included slower traffic, cleaner streets and sidewalks, a safer and more walkable community, more parking, landscaping, and affordable housing, with a goal “to beautify and not gentrify.”“The N. Fair Oaks Empowerment Initiative is bringing people out of their closed doors,” said Pat Gause of the Bethlehem Church of Christ. “It has empowered even the committee to dream bigger, dare to think outside the box. We’ve gotten to know our neighbors on the corridor between Woodbury and Howard. They are basically hardworking people, trying to realize the American dream.”Pastor Joseph Martin, who has lived in Northwest Pasadena for 37 years doing “rescue work” with the “bruised and broken,” became involved with the N. Fair Oaks Empowerment Initiative because he feels it will “provide opportunities for those who don’t leave the neighborhood,” especially young people. “I’m interested in the long haul and in making long-term changes,” explained Pastor Martin. He and others on the Planning Team see the Jobfest as an important first step towards revitalizing this community.Sponsors include the City of Pasadena, the Northwest Commission, Alta Pasa Manor, Arnold Family Funeral Services, ARCO, Bethlehem Church of Christ, Blues Wireless Altadena, State Representative Chris Holden, CHAPcare, Cutting Up, El Caporal, Family Promise of San Gabriel Valley, Friends in Deed Pasadena, Grace Temple, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pasadena Mennonite Church, Metropolitan Baptist Church, Neighborhood Church, New Salem Missionary Baptist Church, New Hope Church, Options for Learning, Successful Opportunities, Rio Meat Market, Rio Fashion, The Big Yard Sale, and the Urban Village.

MEP says that action must follow ISL recognition

first_imgWhatsApp “This government has failed our nurses and midwives” says Limerick TD RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR NewsPoliticsMEP says that action must follow ISL recognitionBy Staff Reporter – December 15, 2017 1203 Liadh Ní RiadaSinn Féin MEP Liadh Ní Riada has given a guarded welcomed to the news that Irish Sign Language (ISL) is expected to be given full official language status in the coming days.The Ireland South MEP said it was a welcome development but warned that equality does not stop at recognition and that action must follow.“I’m delighted that the Dáil is to finally get around to debating the ISL Recognition Bill, albeit a year and a half after first being introduced to the Seanad,” she said.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “This is tremendous news for the 50,000 plus ISL users in Ireland and a long overdue step to acknowledging the deaf community as a full, integral part of the wonderful tapestry that makes up our nation.“This is as issue I have been campaigning for not just in Ireland but in Europe where I was able to use my position on the Culture and Education Committee to put forward a successful amendment that saw the inclusion of Sign Language translation in the EU 2018 budget.“Most recently I raised the issue of ISL recognition at our party’s Ard Fheis last month.“The ISL Recognition Bill is a victory not just for the deaf community but for all groups seeking equality. All members of society deserve the same access to services and opportunities.“Deaf people face unique challenges in participating fully in society in both the public and private spheres.“In particular, as I met with various groups representing deaf people, I was horrified at the disadvantage and danger they are put in by barriers to accessing legal and healthcare services, as well as occupation health and safety alerts in their workplaces.“The ISL Recognition Bill is fantastic news but it must be about more than just recognition; real efforts must be made to instigate tangible change; genuine equality does not stop at recognition, action must follow.“It is crucial that ISL users are able to access all public services and in particular the Government must work with members of the deaf community to create a mechanism that would allow them full and timely access to public services. Deaf people must no longer be disadvantaged in the work place either, and Government must act to vindicate their rights to dignity, safety and equality at work.“This is not just a communication issue; it is an equality issue, an issue of workers’ rights and a human rights issue,” she declared.See more political news here Facebook Minister Harris “missing in action again” as crisis in University Hospital Limerick is raised in Dáil says Limerick TD Print Previous article#BREAKING Man pinned under van after warning of black iceNext articleLimerick students win trip to Brussels hosted by MEP Kelly Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie TAGSDailDeaf CommunityEqualityIreland SouthISLISL Recognition BillLiadh Ni RiadaMEPSinn Fein center_img Email Advertisement Call for rent controls and a ban on economic evictions Limerick TD calls for more resources for mental health services Twitter Fianna Fáil secures changes to Jobpath says Limerick TD Linkedin Limerick TD advocates for The Sale of Tickets Billlast_img read more

Wreck found believed to be 95-year-old ship that vanished near Bermuda Triangle

first_imgLightguard/iStock(ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla.) — After nearly 95 years, explorers believe they have discovered the SS Cotopaxi, a ship that vanished near the area known as the Bermuda Triangle in 1925.The steam-powered bulk carrier set sail from Charleston, South Carolina, to Havana, Cuba, on Nov. 29, 1925 before disappearing on the way.Carrying 32 passengers, no bodies have been recovered, and what happened in the shipwreck, or the whereabouts of it, were unknown — until now.In the summer of 2019, Michael Barnette went on a dive and believed he came across the wreckage of the Cotopaxi off the coast of St. Augustine, Florida.Barnette said that while he didn’t go specifically looking for the ship, he regularly goes out to sea to help identify local wrecks.He spotted what is believed to be the Cotopaxi in an area known as the Bear Wreck.“I felt confident this was the Cotopaxi, given it was the only large steamship in the area,” Barnette said in a statement to ABC News.He enlisted the help of a historian and other research agencies to be sure.Barnette spoke with British historian Guy Walters, who subsequently combed through archival ship records and learned that the Cotopaxi had sent out wireless distress signals on Dec. 1, 1925 — two days after it left from Charleston. The signals were picked up in Jacksonville, Florida, around the area of a shipwreck that was found some 35 years ago.Barnette went diving around the wreck but did not come up with any evidence to prove it was the ship.But after working with the St. Augustine Lighthouse and Maritime Museum, a nonprofit organization dedicated to researching and preserving the maritime history of the region, two of the group’s leading maritime archaeologists went back to the wreckage with Barnette to look for more clues.Further research corroborated the wreck’s location to where the distress signals were sent out, according to Barnette, leading him to believe he had finally uncovered the Cotopaxi.He called the discovery “incredibly exciting.”“I’ve done a countless number of shipwreck dives,” he said, “but this one truly stood out.”The dives and the findings will be detailed on the new Science Channel series “Shipwreck Secrets,” which premieres Feb. 9.
