Ashtead Group (LSE: AHT) has jumped more than 8% today as the FTSE 100 dividend stock continues its impressive recovery following the stock market crash. It’s just posted a solid set of fourth-quarter results, and defied the Covid-19 pandemic to maintain its shareholder payout. This gives investors good cause for celebration.But loyal investors have been celebrating for years. The Ashtead share price was the second-best FTSE 100 performer during the decade to December 2019, with a total return of more than 3,000%. I wrote then that it looked like a buy to me. Despite the pandemic, it looks like a buy today as well.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…Although Ashtead is listed on the FTSE 100, this dividend stock generates 90% of its earnings from the US, through its Sunbelt subsidiary. The group rents out general construction equipment, industrial tools, pumps, power generation, scaffolding, and restoration equipment. It’s benefited from the US boom, but punished by the Covid-19 bust.Well-equipped for growthThe Ashtead share price fell more than 40% in March, but has since recovered almost all of its losses. The FTSE 100 dividend stock is renowned for steadily increasing payouts year after year. That run of growth now extends for 15 years, surviving both the financial crisis and the current pandemic.Naturally, the lockdown hit demand for tool hiring. But today, management could still highlight a “resilient performance,” with full-year rental revenue up 8%, and operating profit up 0.9% to £1.2bn. Ashtead also posted record full-year free cash flow of £792m, more than doubling last year’s figure.Chief executive Brendan Horgan is looking forward to a year of “strong cash generation and strengthening our market position.” This persuaded the board to maintain its progressive dividend policy and to recommend a final dividend of 33.5p. It also confirms Ashtead’s position as a top FTSE 100 dividend stock. Sensibly, it will pause acquisitions and share buy-backs for now.I’d buy this FTSE 100 dividend stockThe Ashtead share price may get a further boost from reports that President Donald Trump is planning a $1trn US infrastructure plan, which will inevitably boost demand for its tools.I’m so impressed Ashtead has been able to get through the crisis without making anyone redundant or using Government-backed job retention schemes, either in the UK or Canada. Q4 pre-tax profit inevitably plunged, by 52% to £98m, the first drop since 2011. Just imagine how impressive full-year profits might have been otherwise.What Ashtead needs now is for the US economy to start flying again. That may happen as monetary and fiscal stimulus hits the market. So long as we don’t get a second wave of coronavirus.This top FTSE 100 dividend stock has shown it has the strength to withstand a recession, and the muscle to power ahead in a bull run. Ashtead looks like a stock for all market conditions. 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. 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.

Taylor: Feds ‘derelict’ on immigration laws

first_img “The Alabama Legislature didn’t create the law making it illegal to hire undocumented aliens,” Taylor said. “That has always been a federal law. The Alabama Legislature is simply requiring the enforcement of the existing law using electronic verification of work eligibility. That’s a fact that has been lost in all of this.”On Monday, U.S. District Judge Sharon L. Blackburn said she decided to block the law set to take effect Thursday until Sept. 29 to give her more time to consider the lawsuits filed against it. The law is opposed by the Obama administration, church leaders and immigrant-rights groups who claim it is unconstitutional.In her statement Monday, Blackburn said she plans to address the legality of the immigration law by the end of September. By The Penny Hoarder Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day In the wake of a federal judge’s temporary block on Alabama’s controversial immigration law, state Sen. Bryan Taylor the issue remains a difficult one.The federal government “has been derelict in its duty to regulate immigration in this country,” said Taylor, R-Prattville. Latest Stories “Where there is a significant number of these undocumented aliens, the schools could need additional funding for programs such as English as a second language,” he said.Taylor said there is nothing in Alabama’s immigration law that prohibits giving a ride to an illegal alien.“What it prohibits is human trafficking,” he said. “And, the harboring provision, basically, prevents the harboring of an illegal alien to hide him or her from the border patrol. The law does prevent renting to an illegal alien.”Hiring illegal immigrants who will work for lower wages is cost saving for employers.Given the state of the economy, more employers are looking for those who will work for less“Anything bought on the black market is cheaper but we can’t have it both ways,” Taylor said. “We are a country of immigrants. We all came from somewhere else in our ancestry. But, with the economy the way it is, we should ensure that all available jobs go to American workers and those who immigrated here legally. It the rule of law.”Taylor said that he has lived in Latin American countries and he has seen the horrendous living conditions in those countries and understands those who want to escape the poverty.“I have friends in Costa Rica and Honduras and one of them is standing in line in an effort to come to our country legally,” Taylor said. “It is not fair for those who come illegally to be rewarded for it.”A provision of the law that could affect many Pike County citizens states that any person who enters into a business transaction, including applying for or renewing a motor vehicle license plate, a driver’s license or non-driver identification card or business license will be required to demonstrate United State citizenship.Under the law, the Pike County Probate Judge’s Office would have to suspend the mail option renewal of vehicle tags.Pike County Probate Judge Wes Allen said now that the state’s immigration law has been temporarily blocked, his office will send out motor vehicle license plate renewal courtesy notices for September as usual.“We will be looking at the procedure to make sure that we are in compliance with the law,” Allen said. “We will fully comply with the law.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwell Print Article Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kitscenter_img Email the author Taylor said that he has not found anything in Alabama’s immigration law that outlaws Christian ministry or prohibits churches from exercising their freedom to minister to all people.Neither, he said, is the law is an attempt to identify undocumented immigrants or to keep children of undocumented aliens from attending school.“That provision has been blatantly mischaracterized,” he said. “The law prohibits schools from attaching any names to children who have not supplied documentation. A child without documentation may still be enrolled without penalty.”Taylor said the number of undocumented school children is reported to the state, making it possible to calculate the educational expenditures for these children.

Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma named Western Conference Rookie of the Month

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersHe also became the sixth non-lottery pick to win the award in the first month of the season.“It’s pretty cool for sure,” Kuzma said. “I wish I was Rookie of the Month and we had a winning record too. That would probably be even better. It’s definitely a great accomplishment, especially the first one of the season.”Through his first 20 games, Kuzma averaged 16.7 points and 6.1 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field. Ben Simmons, the first overall pick in the 2016 draft who missed all of last season with an injury, was the Eastern Conference honoree.Kuzma missed Wednesday’s loss to Golden State because of back spasms. He was expected to be limited in Friday’s practice but as the session wore on he felt good enough to keep going.“I kept saying I was fine, trying more things,” Kuzma said. “I really wanted to play.” After flying to Denver with the Lakers on Friday, Kuzma will be reassessed prior to Saturday’s game against the Nuggets. If his back stiffens, Walton said, the Lakers will rest him to prepare for Sunday’s home game against Houston.His official status for Saturday night is “questionable.”Kuzma has been a lightning bolt for the rebuilding Lakers, emerging as their most NBA-ready rookie while point guard Lonzo Ball, the No. 2 overall pick, has experienced more significant up and downs.Ball was among the players nominated for the November honor after averaging 9 points, 7 rebounds and 7.2 assists per game.While Kuzma, the 27th pick, said he did not plan on making too big of a deal about winning a league-wide award before Ball, his best friend on the team, he dropped in, “I probably will say it.” EL SEGUNDO — Kyle Kuzma found himself locked in a shooting competition on Friday with an unexpected challenger.Assistant coach Miles Simon, his usual counterpart in the regular competition alongside Lonzo Ball, was working on another basket with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. So Luke Walton stepped in to team with assistant coach Brian Shaw for a game of “around the world.”“We won,” Walton said. “I don’t know if that’s good or bad.”If there was a day Kuzma could withstand some light teasing, it was Friday. Following practice, he was informed that he had been named the Western Conference Rookie of the Month for his performance throughout November, just the second Lakers rookie to win the award since its inception in 1981-82.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Lingard apologises over Munich memorial tweet

first_imgManchester United Lingard apologises over ‘totally unacceptable’ tweet during Munich memorial service Jamie Smith 08:02 2/7/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments() Manchester United Premier League Following a post from his account during a service to honour the Munich air disaster victims, the Manchester United midfielder has issued an apology Jesse Lingard has apologised over a “totally unacceptable” tweet that was posted on his social media page during Tuesday’s memorial service to mark the 60th anniversary of the Munich air disaster.Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and Alex Ferguson were among the guests at Old Trafford for an event to remember the 23 people – including eight players – who lost their lives in the crash .Lingard – who was also present – was criticised after a tweet discussing video game FIFA was posted on his account moments after the service’s silence at 1504 GMT, the exact time of the accident in 1958.

Your support is amazing.”It’s clear how the Busby Babes legacy means so much to you all and for that you should be so very proud. It’s why this club is special.”last_img read more
