In my opinion, a large number of these should be avoided. A high dividend yield can often be a sign a company’s payout is unsustainable. A sudden dividend cut can produce large capital losses, which may wipe out years of income in a single day. As such, my favourite high dividend-yielding FTSE 100 stock has to be Tesco (LSE: TSCO). This isn’t one of the most exciting businesses in the UK’s leading blue-chip index. Nevertheless, the group provides an essential service for UK consumers. No matter what the future holds for the UK and global economy, consumers will always need food and drink. This has been exceptionally apparent over the past 12 months. Many companies have been forced to close their brick-and-mortar stores in the coronavirus pandemic. Tesco has been one of the few exceptions. The firm has been classed as an essential retailer. Unlike many, this means sales this year have increased. Granted, the company does have some issues. The UK supermarket sector is highly competitive, and Tesco has struggled to stay ahead of the competition in recent years. Still, I think the FTSE 100 group’s size is its main competitive advantage. Its countrywide distribution network, as well as the firm’s Clubcard offering, means it has an unrivalled distribution network and database of customer purchases. This allows management to tailor offers to consumers and streamline stock levels. A long-term dividend championAs long as Tesco can maintain these competitive advantages, I think the company will remain a FTSE 100 dividend champion. And there’s no reason why the business cannot stay ahead of the competition. It already has an enormous lead. Continued investment in the group’s operations will help maintain this advantage. The mistake the business made in the past was to focus on profit over customers. It now seems to have corrected this error. Customer service is a priority for Tesco, and this clearly had a positive impact on the company’s bottom line. Profit margins have expanded rapidly since 2015, and this has helped facilitate dividend growth. Therefore, I reckon as long as Tesco continues to do what it has been doing for the past five years, the group will remain a FTSE 100 dividend champion. At current levels, the stock supports a dividend yield of 4.3%. That’s not the highest in the index but, in my opinion, Tesco’s sustainability it’s worth the trade-off. I’d rather have a 4.3% dividend yield for a decade than an 8% yield for a year.

Anthony Davis practices Wednesday, expects to play for Lakers-Clippers re-opener

first_imgLAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. >> At a Wednesday afternoon practice, there was no more welcome sight for the Lakers than Anthony Davis in uniform.A day before, the star forward had worn dark sunglasses in the ballroom of the Coronado Springs resort where the Lakers have held most of their practices. Since being poked in the eye by Michael Carter-Williams in Saturday’s scrimmage, Davis said he had been feeling light sensitivity, which kept him out of action in the Lakers’ last practice. A scratch splitting his famous unibrow was the only big sign of injury for Davis as he spoke to reporters Wednesday.“Today it’s way better,” he said. “But they told me it’ll only heal over time.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersDavis wore protective glasses during Wednesday’s practice, which he called “very different,” and there’s a chance he could wear them Thursday when the Lakers re-open their season against the Clippers. But a bespectacled Davis is better than no Davis at all — which the Lakers were worried might be the case.With one of the league’s best scorers, rebounders and shot-blockers now looking on track to play, the Lakers find themselves among the few teams that actually have most of their key pieces. While the Clippers will be without at least Montrezl Harrell and Lou Williams on Thursday night, the Lakers expect to be close to a regular rotation — minus Rajon Rondo who is out long-term with a thumb fracture.Even though the Clippers won’t be at full strength, they’re expecting to have Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, and they’ve beaten the Lakers twice in three meetings.“I think it’s going to be a great measuring stick for where we’re at,” Lakers coach Frank Vogel said. “Obviously we still have a long way to go until we’re playoff ready and this — you don’t sharpen yourself as well against teams that are a lesser opponent as you would a great team.”Davis said there were no other signs of a more serious head injury, like a concussion. He may not necessarily be required to wear the protective glasses on Thursday, but he wanted to give them a dry run in case he does. Vogel said the overnight evaluation will be critical to determine that Davis can play. The team isn’t expected to hold a mandatory shootaround on Thursday morning.

Several of them, including Green on Wednesday, have opened press conferences by calling for justice for slain Kentucky EMT Breonna Taylor. After playing just three quarters of basketball through the three scrimmages, Davis said he was eager to get back to the game.“It’ll feel good to get back on the floor,” he said. “Especially since I didn’t play much in this preseason but to be able to get back on the floor and compete again especially when it counts now.”Lakers plan pregame demonstrationWith social justice and race equity issues being one of the NBA bubble’s biggest talking points, it’s widely expected that players will demonstrate during the national anthem as the NBA is set to restart its season.With Jazz-Pelicans and Lakers-Clippers on the first night, the Lakers said they’re aware that they will help set a tone for how the causes they’ve spoken up for will be received in a display of protest on TV. The NBA has done part of that as a league by inscribing courts with “Black Lives Matter.” It’s unclear whether players will kneel, in the style of Colin Kaepernick, but they’re expected to do something together.Related Articleslast_img read more
