My first preference would be an FTSE 100 index tracker fund. My second preference would be to buy a high dividend-yielding blue-chip stock that could provide me with some certainty in uncertain times. 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…High dividend-yielding FTSE 100 stock There’s currently a whole range of high-yielding stocks in the FTSE 100. 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. 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.

How Generation Z will shape the future of payments

first_imgGen Z (those born between 1995 and 2015) is growing up, graduating from high school and college, and becoming increasingly influential in the payments space. They are bringing their comfortability with technology and change with them. From growing up using computers and the internet, they are uniquely aware of both the challenges and benefits of adopting new technology. Gen Z is currently exploring and pushing the boundaries of modern payment methods, and what they find and like will shape the payments landscape of tomorrow. Credit unions will have to stay on top of – and ahead of – these trends if they are going to compete for the attention of Gen Z, which is actively being targeted by new digital banks and other financial institutions.Embracing Change (We Need Options!) The world today is changing and growing at a faster rate than ever before, and payments are no exception. Gen Z may be the most diverse generation in the way that they make payments. From talking to friends, I discovered that we have a variety of different preferences. A majority still prefer the simplicity and budgeting of debit cards; they don’t want to worry about spending more than they have. They also know the most about debit cards, how to use them and the security risks associated with them. Some prefer the rewards and credit-building capability of credit cards, and they pride themselves on staying on top of their finances, so it is not difficult for them to manage monthly payments. Others are exploring the capabilities that digital wallets have to offer, learning that they no longer have to carry a physical wallet or cards that could be lost or damaged. It is also very likely that the way we will make payments in just a decade or two is impossible to even conceptualize right now. Who could have imagined a store like Amazon Go just 10 years ago? It is important that we are not married to one form of payment, and that we stay open to adopting new methods that prove to be more convenient and secure. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
