CNCT increased their dividend this morning to yield nearly 11%. The shares have risen, though. Still nearly a 10% yield with further rises forecasted.
France's Vinci SA (DG.FR) said on Tuesday that its third-quarter revenue rose 7% from the year-earlier period, bolstered by the expansion of its airport business. Vinci's revenue in the third quarter rose to 10.67 billion euros ($12.56 billion), exceeding a consensus forecast of EUR10.39 billion provided by FactSet. Revenue from Vinci-operated airports rose 31% in the third quarter, while revenue from its toll roads was up 2.4%. The construction and infrastructure operator confirmed its guidance for 2017 as it expects revenue and net profit to keep growing, driven largely by recently-signed contracts to operate airports in Japan and Brazil. Despite a weak construction market in France, and government cutbacks on infrastructure spending, Vinci has managed to raise profitability over the past couple of years by expanding abroad in businesses such as airports and toll roads. The company will pay an interim dividend of EUR0.69 per share on Nov. 9. Write to Marc Navarro Gonzalez at (END) Dow Jones Newswires October 24, 2017 12:34 ET (16:34 GMT)

Dividend payouts this year are on track for a record £94bn 23 October 2017 From the section Business Share this with Facebook Share this with Twitter Share this with Messenger Share this with Email Share Image copyright Antofagasta Image caption Mining companies paid out millions extra in dividends Shareholders are on track to receive a record £94bn in dividend payouts from UK listed companies this year, according to a study. It comes after payouts leapt to £28.5bn in the three months to September, a record for a third quarter. The increase, which includes a rise in special dividends, was driven by bigger payouts from mining companies. The previous annual record, according to the report from Capita Asset Services, was £88.1bn, paid in 2014. Capita's Dividend Monitor assessed data from firms listed on the London stock exchange's main market, which has more than 1,500 companies, of which the biggest are on the FTSE 100. The third-quarter payout was 14% up on the period last year, with two-thirds of the jump due to bigger dividends from London-listed mining companies. Justin Cooper, chief executive of Shareholder Solutions - part of Capita Asset Services - said: "We had high hopes for 2017, but the dividend seam is proving even richer than we expected, as the mining sector finds its footing again." Image copyright Evraz Image caption Russian steel and mining firm Evraz was among those paying out dividends Mr Cooper said: "Investors have struck gold as this year's haul easily smashes the previous record set in 2014. Generous payouts have been topped up by big exchange rate gains between January and June and very large special dividends, setting 2017 up to be a sparkling year." FTSE 100 miner Anglo American restarted its dividend six months earlier than expected, distributing £518m to shareholders. Meanwhile, BHP Billiton tripled its payout, and Evraz paid its first dividend in three years. Stripping out special dividends - typically one-off payments when companies are flush with the cash - investor payments lifted 13% to a record £27bn during the third quarter. Special dividends also picked up by 40% to £1.5bn over the period. The Capita report said the bumper payouts from the mining sector had forced the firm to tweak its full-year forecasts by more than £3bn, with headline dividends now expected to rise by 11% to £94bn for the year. Pay rise Mr Cooper added: "Exchange rate gains will be gone in 2018, unless the pound takes another jolt downwards as the Brexit talks unfold, and most of the big companies who cancelled dividends in recent years have already restarted them, so that additional sparkle will have dulled. "Even so, the overall value distributed by UK plc is likely to remain at or near 2017's record levels," he said. Companies have been criticised for raising dividends - especially special dividends - while wage rises and investment remain sluggish. Stephan Stern, director of the High Pay Centre, said it is undeniable that people benefit from higher dividends through pensions and investments, but added that some of the money could be put to better use. "People need a pay rise," he said. "And companies need to invest for the future in skills and training, and to improve productivity." He was also suspicious about motives of companies that make their shares attractive by paying higher dividends. "Top executives have an incentive to keep shares up, because they will benefit from healthy bonuses," he said. Capita's dividend study excludes investment companies, such as investment trusts, whose dividends rely on income from equities and bonds. Also, the figures are before tax.
LONDON: A “generous̶1; dividend policy would help to align the interests of Saudi Aramco investors and the government, S&P said in a report. The rating agency noted that a reduction in income tax rates for the larger hydrocarbons producers earlier this year means that the government will be encouraged to push the national oil company to offer attractive dividends when it floats. A plan to list Saudi Aramco in 2018 is on track, the company’s CEO confirmed this week. The flotation of about 5 percent of Saudi Aramco is a centerpiece of Vision 2030, a wide-ranging reform plan to diversify the Saudi economy beyond oil. The Kingdom this year reduced the tax rate for the largest oil producers like Saudi Aramco to 50 percent from 85 percent. That is in addition to a 20 percent royalty payment the company makes to the government. “The government will now be incentivized to encourage Saudi Aramco to follow a generous dividend policy to compensate for the reduction in tax revenues,” said S&P in a report published over the weekend that affirmed the Kingdom’s ratings. “In this way, the interests of investors and the government will be more aligned,” it said. Because the ultimate use of the proceeds from the IPO has not yet been defined, S&P did not factor them into its projections for the non-oil economy which it expects to grow by about 1 percent this year and next. The Kingdom is expected to “consolidate its public finances to ensure liquid assets are maintained” close to total economic output over the next two years, S&P noted. The agency affirmed its foreign and local currency rating and said the country had a stable outlook. Saudi Arabia last year announced the National Transformation Program (NTP) — which offers structure and detail to Vision 2030, the country’s blueprint for economic and social transformation. Among the targets included in the plan is the creation of 450,000 private sector jobs by the end of the decade and an increase of the private sector’s share of the economy to 60 percent from 40 percent in 2014. It also aims to boost education and increase home ownership to 52 percent by 2020 from 47 percent. The total budgeted cost of the NTP is more than SR268 billion ($71.4 billion) — or about 12 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). S&P expects the NTP could result in “accelerated economic growth” and an overall rebalancing of the economy. But it noted that much depends on achieving challenging targets over a number of years. The construction sector in the Kingdom still faces payment pressures and the industry accounts for about 8 percent of total bank loans, S&P estimates. It expects non-performing loans to rise to between 2 percent to 3 percent over the next two years from about 1.4 percent at the end of last year — largely due to construction exposure S&P said it expected Saudi Arabia’s external and government balance sheet positions to remain strong over the next three years. The IMF last week estimated that the Kingdom may get a budget boost of more than $90 billion by 2020 from new taxes and changes to subsidies but cautioned that it should slow the pace of reforms.
DIVI seem almost apologetic for having PUT option insurance in place. I actually don't understand why so many trusts dont use Options for Insurance! Surprised the FSA hasn't insisted that all trusts have an auditable rolling PUT options systems in place to protect investors especially those trusts with high levels of structural gearing, bank debt and broker facilities. In hindsight after good years it looks like a waist of money just like insurance but one tiny little 1987, 9/11, 2007/8 LTCM moment and we could be very greatful.

Alan Oscroft | Wednesday, 2nd August, 2017 | More on: DTY DVO William Murphy. Licence: One of my favourite ever headlines from The Onion was World death rate unchanged at 100%, and as long as that remains true, the long-term customer base for Dignity (LSE: DTY) seems pretty much guaranteed. Earnings per share almost doubled at the UK’s’ largest funeral operator between 2012 and 2016, and investors piled in and created a typical growth spike, The share price soared, but from round the middle of 2015 it’s been pretty flat, and today stands at 2,552p. Early earnings growth looks set to cool, with analysts expecting just a 4% rise this year, but Wednesday’s interim results suggest…

2 overlooked FTSE 100 champions you could retire on Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 16th July, 2017 | More on: INF SDR Image: Public domain Even though the company is a member of the FTSE 100, Informa (LSE: INF) is overlooked by most investors. With a market capitalisation of £5.5bn, the company is one of the UK’s biggest businesses, but its day-to-day operations are hardly exciting. Informa runs international exhibitions, events and produces business/academic publications. Even though there is a high demand for these services, growth is slow and steady, which isn’t exciting. But it’s perfect for long-term investors who want to achieve capital growth and income with minimal risk. Steady growth Over the past four years, earnings per share have pushed steadily higher, rising from 35.2p for 2012 to 42.1p for 2016. City analysts are expecting the company to report earnings per share of 47p this year, up 12% year-on-year. At the same time, shares in the company support a dividend yield of 3% and the payout of 20.3p per share is covered 2.3 times by EPS. For 2018 analysts have pencilled in earnings per share growth of 7%. Considering the company’s historic growth and current level of dividend income, today’s valuation of 14.2 times forward earnings seems to be about right. If the group can continue to grow earnings at a rate of 5% to 10% per annum for the foreseeable future, and the valuation remains the same, investors should be able to pocket a double-digit annual return from both capital growth and income. Overall, the numbers seem to show that your portfolio might benefit from owning Informa. Long term growth The best stocks to retire on are those that have a long-term business model and asset managers, and pension providers are a great example. Schroders (LSE: SDR) has seen profits explode over the past five years as more customers flocked to the company’s offer. Since 2012 earnings per share have risen by around 100% (based on city estimates for 2017). This growth has translated into impressive returns for shareholders with shares in the firm up 150% over the past five years excluding dividends. City analysts are expecting the company’s steady growth to continue in the years ahead. Mid-single-digit earnings per share growth is predicted every year for the next three years, and I doubt that the growth will stop there. As one of the UK’s largest wealth managers, Schroders is well placed to capture more business as the country’s wealth rises. With further growth on the horizon, it looks as if shareholders will continue to reap the rewards for many years. At the time of writing, shares in the company trade at a forward P/E of 15.7, an undemanding multiple considering Schroders’ growth over the past five years and future potential. The shares also support a dividend yield of 3.2%. The payout is covered twice by EPS. These figures indicate that just like Informa, shares in Schroders could generate a return of 10% per annum or more for investors in the future. Once again, these returns indicate that Schroders could be a great investment to wake up your portfolio.
