GE closes $4.6bn of deals to build up its business…

first_img General Electric (GE) yesterday made a pair of major acquisitions despite being spurned in a third attempt to buy a UK oil firm, as the largest US conglomerate builds up its energy and finance arms.GE reached a $3bn (£1.9bn) deal to buy Dresser, a maker of gas engines used by oil and gas production firms. “Dresser has a global franchise and brand with 60 per cent of sales outside of North America, which will be accelerated by GE’s global footprint,” said John Krenicki, a GE vice chairman of its energy infrastructure division.Its GE Capital finance arm, which had been its weakest point through the recession had bought $1.6bn of retail credit assets from Citigroup.GE has been an active acquirer over most of the past decade, and chief executive Jeff Immelt has said the company will focus on deals sized at $1bn to $3bn in areas that complement its core industrial and finance businesses. The company is in the process of selling its NBC Universal media business to the biggest US cable operator Comcast.The payoff of the company’s latest round of deals is yet to be seen, said senior portfolio manager Peter Klein at Fifth Third Asset Management.

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.

Buying stocks with high dividend yields may seem to be an obvious means of boosting your passive income in retirement.While this strategy may make a notable difference to your income in the short run, over the long term you may benefit to a greater extent from buying stocks with strong dividend growth potential.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…Over time, the income they produce could surpass the dividends received from higher-yielding shares. As such, now could be the right time to buy dividend growth shares – especially since many of them appear to offer good value following the recent pullback in the stock market.Growth versus yieldThe yields on offer from companies that have impressive dividend growth potential may not be among the highest that are available in the stock market at the present time. After all, their share prices may have been buoyed by strong investor sentiment due to their improving financial prospects.However, purchasing them today and holding them for the long run may lead to a higher overall income return than focusing your capital on higher-yielding stocks with slower dividend growth prospects. The impact of compounding could mean that a relatively modest dividend today becomes a highly attractive income return after several years of growth. Therefore, any income investor with a long time horizon may be better offer accepting slightly lower yields today in return for strong growth potential in the coming years.Identifying dividend growth stocksClearly, identifying the most attractive dividend growth stocks is not an exact science due to the future being filled with uncertainty. However, investors may be able to increase their chances of buying companies which have a greater opportunity to grow their shareholder payouts through considering the fundamentals of a wide range of stocks.For example, companies which have a modest dividend payout ratio may be able to increase their dividend payouts at a faster pace than their earnings growth. The dividend payout ratio is calculated by dividing dividends paid by net profit to determine the proportion of earnings that are distributed to shareholders.Likewise, assessing a company’s earnings growth potential by considering its outlook and trading conditions may provide insight into its capacity to raise shareholder payouts. In addition, considering its management’s attitude towards reinvesting profit or paying it to shareholders could help you to identify companies with strong dividend growth potential.Buying opportunityWith many companies that offer impressive long-term dividend growth prospects currently trading on low valuations, now could be the right time to buy a diverse range of stocks.Certainly, risks such as coronavirus may cause a slowdown in earnings growth across a range of sectors in the short run. But by focusing on your long-term passive income prospects, you may be able to capitalise on the cyclicality of the stock market and boost your dividend growth rate in the coming years.

The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Smithfield, NC July 9, 2013 at 10:38 am I agree with John Romjue, the decline is at least in part the result of casting aside foundational components of Biblical theology for the sake of appealing to the nonbeliever. The result is offering less than the full measure of the Christian Gospel and anything short of 100% dishonors God, the faith, and denies salvation. Anglican Communion, Youth Minister Lorton, VA July 9, 2013 at 10:40 am I agree sir. The EL is quickly becoming another abomination of the Christian faith and history as it continues to cast aside core doctrines. New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Bishop Susan Johnson addresses the delegates at the 14th Biennial National Convention in Ottawa. Photo: Simon Chambers[Anglican Journal] Lutheran delegates were shown a sobering portrait of their church’s present and future prospects during the first business session of the ELCIC’s National Convention.In her opening address, National Bishop Susan Johnson shared the results of a financial and demographic study of the denomination commissioned by the ELCIC’s Conference of Bishops.It shows that 54 congregations have closed since the ELCIC was established in 1986, and that individual membership has dropped from more than 262,000 to about 139,000 during the same time period. Future projections are equally grim. The study suggests a further 64 ELCIC congregations will close by 2020.An aging membership explains part of the drop in numbers. An especially sharp decline came following the ELCIC’s decision in 2011 to authorize congregations to offer same-sex marriages.The projected drop in membership would have financially catastrophic consequences for an already cash-strapped denomination, with annual revenues to the national church estimated to plunge by $400,000 by 2020.Johnson described the demographic and financial projections as “a worst-case scenario” that could result in major cuts to national staff, programming and global partnerships, and even curtailing the full communion relationship with the Anglican Church of Canada.At the same time, the national bishop struck a hopeful tone, suggesting the ELCIC’s membership and money crisis could also be a moment of opportunity for Canada’s Lutherans to “define what our core mission is and how we can best accomplish it.”“We need to be open to the creative power of the Holy Spirit,” Johnson told delegates. “God is calling us, and indeed all the churches in North America and much of Europe, to a new thing. What’s hard is that we don’t know what that new thing is going to be.”Nevertheless, Johnson offered some suggestions as to what that “new thing” might look like in the ELCIC. They include creating more flexible models of local ministry, deepening partnerships and reducing the size of some national church structures. Comments are closed.last_img read more

first_img Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI P.J. Cabbiness says: Time includes Katharine Jefferts Schori in series on women changing the world This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Roselind Wood says: [Episcopal News Service] Time magazine’s new multimedia project, Firsts: Women Who Are Changing the World, features the Rt. Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, 26th presiding bishop, as one of 46 profiled women.A trailer for the video interview with Jefferts Schori, along with the text, is here.Jefferts Schori was the bishop of Nevada when she was elected in June 2006. She was installed as presiding bishop in November of that year. Her term ended in November 2015 when current Presiding Bishop Michael Curry succeeded her.She is now serving as assisting bishop in the Diocese of San Diego while that diocese discerns who to call as its next bishop.The Time project, which debuted Sept. 7, uses the metaphor of the glass ceiling. “What a jagged image we use for women who achieve greatly, defining accomplishment in terms of the barrier rather than the triumph. There she is up where the air is thin, where men still outnumber women, but where the altitude is awesome,” the introduction says. “Our goal with Firsts is for every woman and girl to find someone whose presence in the highest reaches of success says to her that it is safe to climb, come on up, the view is spectacular.”The list of the other 45 women is here, and includes such women as Hillary Rodham Clinton, Serena Williams, Oprah Winfrey and Kellyanne Conway.Time plans to publish a book from the series Sept. 17.

Fighting imperialism, come hell and high water

first_imgCaleb T. MaupinWW photo: G. DunkelExcerpted from remarks by Caleb Maupin at the Workers World Party 2014 National Conference in New York City, Nov. 15-16.What’s the difference between a socialist and a communist? This question comes up as we spread the revolutionary message among our class. The writer Sherwood Anderson said, “The Communists are the ones who mean it.”We do mean it. We are serious about our vision of a classless society, without the profit system’s horrors of hunger, poverty and homelessness.  We intend to rip up this society and replace it with something completely different.Every so often, a historical moment arises where we are put to the test, and we have to prove that we are the ones who mean it. A moment like that came about 100 years ago. Then, as now, the world was ruled by a group of billionaire monopolists, who profitted from war and militarism.Imperialist war: A test for revolutionariesDuring World War I, when the billionaires waged war to determine how profits would be divided, many socialist parties and “Marxists,” labor union leaders, intellectuals and academics went along with it. They waved their flags and did not oppose the catastrophic imperialist war. Millions of workers were sent to their deaths.Eugene Debs in the United States, Rosa Luxemburg and Clara Zetkin in Germany, and V.I. Lenin and the Bolsheviks in Russia stood alone against the war. Afterwards, Lenin urged the Bolsheviks to stop calling themselves “socialists” and “social-democrats,” so they weren’t confused with the imperialist war supporters. Instead, Lenin urged the Bolsheviks to call themselves the “Communist Party” to show their distinct political trend.Workers World Party, like the Bolsheviks, is a Communist party. Like Lenin, we will never wave the flag and cheer as workers are sent to die. We will never team up with the war makers and billionaires when they  attack a country.Not only are we anti-war, but we are not neutral. We don’t just oppose U.S. imperialism and Israel’s Zionist settler regime, we defend the right of the Palestinians to fight against it, whatever their tactics. We support the Islamic Republic of Iran’s right to pursue peaceful nuclear energy and develop its economy. We support the right of people in East Ukraine to form self-defense militias and get support from whomever offers it. We support the right of socialist north Korea to develop nuclear weapons and  protect themselves.We support Ferguson’s oppressed youths’ right to do what they determine is necessary to stop police terror. We offer unconditional support to forces of resistance outside the U.S.’s illegal borders.Forging our own ‘deadly weapons’Marxism-Leninism isn’t a utopian doctrine, with dreams about the ideal society. It is the science of revolution, and it views the world as filled with contradictions. It involves taking sides in unfolding struggles and pushing forward the forces of social progress against the old order of reaction and oppression.The oppressive order today is imperialism. A small group of monopolists and bankers control the world economy and use violence and repression to keep their profits rolling in. To defend their profits and keep this system intact, the imperialists have drones, tanks, fighter jets and cruise missiles.The pro-imperialist press is their deadliest weapon. When imperialists funded a neo-Nazi army, which overthrew Ukraine’s elected government, the media convinced millions of people it was about  “Russian aggression.”In Hong Kong, a pro-imperialist, pro-Wall Street minority of rich students fantasize that China can become a Disneyland playground if only the Communist Party is overthrown. The majority of working-class Chinese people oppose them. Yet the U.S. has convinced many that this is a righteous struggle for democracy.To combat the billion-dollar imperialist megaphones, we have our own media: Workers World newspaper and Red Flag, the Fight Imperialism, Stand Together magazine.  Also, there is more media coming from oppressed countries, which present their views.Why doesn’t Workers World criticize certain countries? Because the press is a deadly weapon, we won’t add our voice to the imperialist chorus. We won’t echo the bosses’ case for war and destruction.We want to build a revolutionary movement. We want to build alliances with those fighting against Wall Street: Muslims, secular nationalists, Bolivarians, anarchists, all resistance forces.  We know who the real enemy is and what our job is in the center of the empire.Danger of a new world warImperialism does not bring development. It impoverishes people all over the world.Russia is now a capitalist country, and China has strayed far from its revolutionary past, but both of them became what they are today because of socialist development, which brought them out of poverty. It is only because of revolutions in 1917 and 1949 that Russia and China are rising as huge players on the global markets.The Wall Street imperialists, the London stock exchange criminals and the Western banking cartels are losing their grip on the world. Their only hope for getting it back is war.If the U.S. launches a new world war, millions of youth, who go to schools filled with cops and who face lives with short-term, low-wage jobs, will be sent to fight in Wall Street’s war.Our revolutionary dutyWhen that happens, what will we do?  It is our duty to tell the next generation that the Chinese people didn’t cripple us with student debt, Russians didn’t fill our schools with cops, and Iranians and Venezuelans didn’t destroy good-paying jobs. If World War III comes, U.S. workers must turn their guns around and make war against the war makers.With a strong revolutionary party, this country’s youth have the potential to be the generation that saved humanity from catastrophe and destruction. This will require fearlessness, boldness and a willingness to make sacrifices.The U.S. is a reactionary place, but this society still gave birth to great revolutionaries like Harriet Tubman, John Brown, Paul Robeson and Andy Stapp.The next chapter in the people’s struggle is waiting to be written. It is time to move forward, to bring our class a message of resistance and to keep raising the banner of revolution.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

At least 60 journalists were aboard flotilla, most still held

first_img Reporters Without Borders reiterates its urgent appeal to the Israeli authorities to release the journalists who were accompanying the Gaza-bound humanitarian flotilla that was intercepted on 31 May. According to the latest information available to the press freedom organisation, at least 60 journalists were aboard.“We point out that the journalists were there to do their job, which was to cover what happened,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They should not be confused with the activists. Three hundred of the flotilla’s passengers are about to be deported but journalists are still being held. We call on the Israeli authorities to free all the detained journalists and return their equipment, which was seized by the military.”Three hundred passengers are currently at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport, from where they are to be deported today. Some journalists are among them.Reporters Without Borders has also learned that the Al Jazeera crew that was aboard the flotilla, including correspondent Abbas Nasser and cameraman Isaam Zaatar, was expelled yesterday.Reporters Without Borders is aware of 16 journalists being held at Be’er Scheva detention centre.
