Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves The National Grid (LSE: NG) share price is a staple of UK income-based investment portfolios. The company is one of the top dividend stocks in the FTSE 100, thanks to its stable cash flows and near-monopoly of the UK electricity network. And the company announced today it has struck a deal that should consolidate its formidable position in the UK electricity market. 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…National Grid share price outlookToday, the company announced that it has agreed to buy the holding business of Western Power Distribution, the UK’s largest electricity distribution business, from PPL WPD Limited, a subsidiary of PPL Corporation, for £7.8bn. According to the company, this deal will strengthen National Grid’s long-term growth outlook by “ensuring a significant scale position in electricity distribution.” As part of the deal, National Grid is selling the Narragansett Electric Company to PPL for $3.8bn. This business is part of the group’s US division. A sale of a stake in National Grid Gas plc, the national gas transmission system owner, is also in the works.These three deals will “strategically pivot” National Grid’s UK portfolio towards electricity. The group’s share of assets in electricity will increase from 60% to 70%. At the same time, the company’s international diversification will fall modestly.In recent years, the share of the group’s assets in the US has crept above 50%. Following the Rhode Island business sale, the percentage of US assets will fall to 40%. I think that still provides a high level of geographic diversification for the organisation. Management also believes that with increased exposure to the UK’s electricity sector, the group will accelerate the country’s transition towards net zero. Business growth Overall, this selection of deals has ignited my interest in the National Grid share price. The company’s growth has come under pressure recently as investment returns have been falling. This has led some analysts to express concern about the group’s long-term dividend plans.However, according to management, this deal will “underpin” National Grid’s 5-7% asset growth target. This should help the firm meet its dividend policy of increasing the payout in line with inflation over the long run. The stock currently offers a dividend yield of 5.8%.Of course, these are just targets at this stage, and they could be upset by any number of factors. The electric market is highly regulated. If regulators try to cap the amount of profit National Grid is allowed to make, it may have to re-think its dividend plans. The firm may also suffer if a natural disaster strikes its network, incurring significant repair costs. These are the company’s biggest risks. However, it may also be exposed to other unforeseen challenges, such as competition concerns. National Grid operates a near-monopoly and if that’s challenged, it may be forced to break itself apart. Still, despite these risks, I think today’s deal is broadly positive for the group. With that being the case, I would buy the stock for my portfolio today.

THE ECONOMIST: The wrong answer Facebook WhatsApp TAGSeconomyenergygasmarketsoilRay Perryman BusinessRay Perryman Pinterest By M. Ray Perryman – May 23, 2021 Ray Perryman is the head of The Perryman Group and serves as a distinguished professor at the International Institute for Advanced Studies. Texas recently opted out of federal unemployment compensation related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including the $300 weekly supplement. The reason often given is that there are as many job openings as there are Texans receiving benefits, with the implication being that people will now be more eager to enter the workforce.This talking point seems thoroughly ensconced in our political rhetoric, and is unlikely to be dislodged. Nonetheless, it simplifies and obfuscates a much more complex issue. There are certainly some people choosing not to work at least partially because of the added benefits, but the limited available evidence suggests that their numbers are relatively small.Many job openings are indeed going unfilled. Recall, however, that there were widespread shortages before the pandemic. In early 2020 (pre-COVID), there were far more job openings in Texas than unemployed workers, despite the fact that 1.1 million undocumented people went to jobs every day. This situation reflects demographic patterns which haven’t materially changed.One inescapable aspect of this phenomenon is the aging of the baby boomers. We will be confronting a labor shortage throughout the decade and beyond, and reducing unemployment benefits won’t alter this trend. There are also skills mismatches; the abilities of workers and the requirements of jobs are frequently not in sync.Additionally, some workers continue to have safety concerns. With mask guidance still somewhat unclear and a mix of vaccinated and unvaccinated people in most workplaces, it will take time for these concerns to abate. Evidence suggests that this issue is quite significant.Another factor is the changing dynamics of many families, including remote school. Moreover, childcare is difficult to obtain and expensive. Employment in childcare remains below pre-pandemic levels and needs have escalated, suggesting that Texas requires additional capacity.Beyond these constraints is the issue of affordability, which was a problem before the pandemic. A 2018 study found average costs in Texas of center-based care of $1,080 per month for infants and $690 for toddlers, while home-based childcare was $840 for providers meeting minimum requirements. Based on federal standards, childcare is considered affordable if it costs 7 percent or less of household income ($437 based on median income for Texas). Quality varies across programs, with smaller class sizes and well-compensated teachers costing twice the average. In such circumstances, it is not surprising that staying home is often a better financial option. Correspondingly, those not reentering the workforce are disproportionately female.The solutions will ultimately involve investments in education and training, more affordable and available childcare, sensible immigration reform, and other notable initiatives. Eliminating an essential source of relief for many individuals and families under unprecedented circumstances will pose additional challenges, while not dealing with the real problem. Stay safe!

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail33ft/iStockBy JULIA JACOBO, ABC News(BATON ROUGE, La.) — Three Baton Rouge police officers have been placed on administrative leave after a Louisiana State University football player alleged that they “violated” him at gunpoint.LSU wide receiver Koy Moore wrote on Twitter that on Saturday night he was approached by the officers, who Moore said assumed he “had a gun and drugs.”“I was violated numerous times even as going as far as trying to unzip my pants in search of a weapon that I repeatedly told them I did not have,” Moore wrote. Written by Beau Lund Just read this please we need a change!!! pic.twitter.com/EyiK0Rmx1r— Koy Moore الحمدلله (@asap_koy) November 8, 2020Moore said that as he tried to post a live video of the encounter to social media, they “snatched” his phone and insinuated that he may have been harmed had he not told the officers that he played football for the university.“I could’ve lost my life and I know for a fact that nothing would’ve happened to the guys who did it,” he wrote.After the Baton Rouge Police Department was made aware of the encounter, Police Chief Murphy Paul launched an internal investigation and the three officers involved were placed on administrative leave, according to a statement from the department.“We appreciate Mr. Moore bringing this incident to our attention,” Paul said in a statement. “As in every case, we will be collecting all available evidence and conducting interviews. Accountability and transparency are critical in building trust with the community. I pledge a thorough investigation in this complaint.”Moore concluded his post with a call to end racial discrimination, writing that “…as some celebrate the election of a new president understand the real problem [has] not changed.”LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron met with Moore and his mother on Monday to discuss the incident, ESPN reported.Orgeron wrote on Twitter that while he could not comment on the investigation, he believes “that we must work collectively to embrace our differences.”“We have to listen, learn and come together to combat social injustice and racism if we are to create a safer and more equitable society for all people,” Orgeron wrote.

IS IT TRUE that the State of Illinois blew the deadline of passing a budget by July 1, 2017 and is now moving into its third year without a budget?…having their debt downgraded to junk ratings is now imminent which will make infrastructure and maintenance improvements more expensive by raising the interest rates to banana republic levels?…Illinois still is not caught up on $16 Billion in routine expenses and another Billion in fees and penalties?…the financial meltdown of Illinois is run from Chicago and the rest of the state is locked into the bus hat Chicago drove off a cliff?…Chicago is also being assisted to fight street crime by the federal government because they can’t seem to keep murders and shootings down to video game levels?…it is a sad state of affairs across the Wabash River?IS IT TRUE last week the City of Evansville was grappling with a request to allocate $100,000 tax dollars for the purpose of helping poor people with repairs to their homes?…one writer even opined that $100,000 is like buying a cheeseburger to a city with a budget of over $300 Million and the writer is correct?…what the writer conveniently ignores is that $100,000 tossed into the sea of disrepair that makes up several areas of Evansville isn’t even enough to repair broken mailboxes much less a significant number of homes?…it is enough to show favoritism to a fraction of a percent of the people struggling with dilapidation and favoritism or downright cronyism is always at play when public money assists private problems?…from “who gets a “Front Door Pride” house to who gets to rent a $180,000 house at below market rate, to what contractors get approved to do the repairs at inflated prices, there is always the appearance of cronyism and corruption with such programs?IS IT TRUE that former DMD Director Tom Barnett gave the CCO a tour of some of the areas of worse dilapidation once?…Director Barnett’s statement to the CCO was that Evansville has 10,000 houses that need over $100,000 in repairs to be habitable?…that amounts to a billion dollar problem with dilapidated houses?…$100,000 is 0.01% of what was needed to address this problem 7 years ago?…what the magnitude of this problem should drive home is that there is no damn money for nonsensical things like penguin exhibits, ball fields, and welfare hotels but our elected leaders keep obsessing over fun and games which the roofs fall in?…tossing $100,000 at a crony driven housing assistance program makes about as much sense as putting a cup of boiling water into the Ohio River to warm it up in January?…it does however make more sense than spending millions on a penguin park?…saving the money for real collective benefit is even better?…we know the hungry sharks are circling the potential for $100,000 if graft,to be authorized, and it probably will be, but it just perpetuates irresponsible management to do so?Todays “READERS POLL” question is: Would you join a positive and non-violent protest in support of the City of Evansville Police and Firemen receiving an increase in salaries and healthcare benefits?We urge you to take time and click the section we have reserved for the daily recaps of the activities of our local Law Enforcement professionals.
