  • Dividends hit £15bn as FTSE ups payouts

    first_img Share UK dividends soared by an underlying 7.9 per cent to £15bn in the first quarter of 2011, according to a survey published today. The rise represents a £1.4bn lift compared with the same period last year and the largest quarterly growth for three years. The strong first quarter means dividend experts Capita Registrars, who carried out the research, has increased its full year forecast to £64.2bn.The biggest factor boosting the first quarter was a chunky special dividend from International Power – 92p net per share – which contributed over a tenth of the total payout.BP, despite the troubles it finds itself in with its protracted plans to expand in Russia, finally began to pay an income to its shareholders again following the Gulf of Mexico spill crisis. The oil giant, whose dividends represent a significant chunk of the total on the FTSE, paid out £900m. Companies on the FTSE 100 contributed 92 per cent of the first dividends, compared to six per cent from the FTSE 250. The first quarter growth came despite the strong base for 2010, when BP paid a full £1.8bn dividend, and a number of companies brought forward payouts to beat the 50p tax rate. A total of 156 companies paid a dividend in the first quarter. While 126 companies increased or reinstated dividends, only 40 cut or cancelled. Capita Registrars chief executive Charles Cryer said: “2011 has got off to a very strong start, and underlying dividend growth will accelerate from here. Income investors are set to enjoy the best year since 2008, with an extra £7.7bn flowing from UK companies into their pockets.” Share buybacks totalling at least £16.5bn will add another 25 per cent on top of the dividend total.

  • Former President Manuel Zelaya calls Honduras ‘ruled by USA’

    first_imgThis interview by Carlo Pereira of the German weekly Unsere Zeit (Our Time) was made during the International Seminar in Mexico City on March 12 and published in UZ on March 20. Translation and photo by John Catalinotto.Carlo Pereira: The 2009 coup in Honduras made big headlines around the world. How do you assess its consequences now after more than five years?Honduran President Mel Zelaya defends Venezuela.WW photo: John CatalinottoPresident Mel Zelaya: All indicators show that the situation in Honduras is deteriorating day by day. That means the social, economic, political and security conditions. Since the coup, poverty, debt, corruption and crime have all increased. The people demand real democracy and peace, but this is the last thing those who took power with the coup want to give the people.CP: How do you see the role of the U.S., the European Union and the individual European states in the preparation of the coup and after it took place?MZ: Following the coup, the U.S. virtually took over the leadership of the country. It runs the country; the [Honduran] president only manages things and follows the instructions of the U.S. State Department and the Southern Command. The European Union is no longer a defender of human rights. It represents the interests of entrepreneurs and banks; it promotes the free trade agreement. In this sense, the EU has lost much of its standing as role model for a Central American economic alliance that it once had with regard to democracy and human rights.CP: Do you see a parallel between the coup in Honduras and the current U.S. aggression against Venezuela?MZ: What these actions show about the U.S. is that it is an intolerant, anti-democratic empire, focused on interventions. The U.S. has no respect for our independence and sovereignty, no respect for the nation-state. The U.S. must correct its policy. In the Middle East, the U.S. has split up the peoples and set them against each other in civil war. Latin America calls out with one voice in defense of the sovereignty of all Latin American nations. The U.S. must stop looking at Latin America as its backyard and begin to respect the social processes that go on in Latin America.CP: How do you assess the situation and prospects of the progressive forces in Honduras?MZ: Throughout Latin America, there is a great effort being made. The historical reality moves with ups and downs and is sometimes cumbersome. Absolutely no one will be able to constantly keep humanity from fighting for equality, freedom and solidarity. No one can prevent the people from doing this. The movement can be delayed, but it is a mistake for the U.S. to try to stop the process of democratic socialism in Latin America.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

  • USDA Announces Agreement with South Korea to Help Protect U.S. Trade…

    first_img SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 16, 2018 Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Announces Agreement with South Korea to Help Protect U.S. Trade During… Previous articleHouse Lawmakers Introduce Bipartisan STRESS Act to Help FarmersNext articleHouse Farm Bill Markup Delayed Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter USDA Announces Agreement with South Korea to Help Protect U.S. Trade During HPAI Detections Facebook Twitter The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced an agreement with the government of South Korea that significantly reduces negative impacts on trade should another detection of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) occur in the United States. The agreement will allow for trade restrictions at the state level instead of the country level during any future HPAI detections.This action bolsters the already strong trade relationship between the United States and South Korea and will prevent a repeat of trade actions taken in 2015 when all U.S. poultry, poultry products and eggs were banned as a result of a detection of HPAI.“Limiting trade restrictions during future HPAI detections to only those states with positive detections will help keep trade flowing,” said Greg Ibach, USDA Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs. “The new science-based agreement will allow unaffected U.S. producers to keep poultry, poultry products and eggs going to South Korea. This helps us meet Secretary Perdue’s vision of doing right and feeding the world.”“Trade is critical for the health of American agriculture, and to support vibrant rural economies. Keeping markets open to exports of U.S. poultry is an important part of that story,” said USDA Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney. “This success with South Korea, a top ten market already for poultry products, means we will continue to grow exports to a critical market.”USDA plays a vital role in ensuring the free flow of agricultural trade by certifying that the millions of U.S. agricultural and food products shipped to markets abroad meet the importing countries’ entry requirements. USDA also keeps export markets open for American agricultural products by addressing concerns about plant and animal health raised by U.S. trading partners. Under the new agreement, if there is an HPAI detection in the United States, unaffected states would continue to trade with South Korea. SHARElast_img read more
