Enter Your Email Address If the stock market recovery continues which shares will do best? Right now that’s the big question. I think one way to set oneself up for success if the market rallies from this point on, would be to invest in high-yielding shares like GlaxoSmithKline (LSE: GSK) and Vodafone (LSE: VOD).Pharma share a big winner in a stock market recovery?Despite Pfizer winning the race to announce the first effective vaccine for Covid-19, other pharma groups are still working on vaccines. This includes GlaxoSmithKline. GSK is involved with three potential solutions being developed by Sanofi, Medicago and Clover Pharmaceuticals.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…The Sanofi/GSK vaccine has pre-orders from governments including the UK’s. The Pfizer vaccine, even with its claimed 90% effectiveness, still leaves the door open for other jabs. I think there’s still an opportunity for GSK to play its part in rescuing the world from 2020’s nightmare.Looking longer term though, investors could benefit from the reorganisation of the business. By becoming more focused on pharmaceuticals and spinning out its consumer division, GSK should be able to put more resources into finding blockbuster drugs. This is what AstraZeneca has done well over the last five years or so. Its share price has performed far better than GSK’s as a result.Lastly, for investors like me who are prepared to wait for GSK to improve, there’s the dividend yield, which is a very juicy 5.5%. All in all, I think GlaxoSmithKline could be among the winners if there is a stock market recovery. The shares are cheap and high-yielding, which is what I think investors will be looking for as many growth shares have arguably become too expensive.The high-yielding share with recovery potential Yielding around 7%, I think Vodafone’s shares are another good option for investors. Especially those who want to create an income from dividends. The shares are well down on where they started the year so there’s potential for a major bounce-back if sentiment continues to improve.The dividend was cut last year, making it more sustainable now, and free cash flow cover also makes the dividend more secure. The group is targeting 2.5 to 3 times net debt-to-cash profits. This also means the dividend is less likely to be cut by management, I feel.Steps towards the sale of Vodafone’s European tower assets have continued. The telecoms group is targeting an early 2021 IPO for the newly formed Vantage Towers. This will provide cash for 5G which should bring opportunities for the group.If Vodafone can improve its performance in European markets, for example, through selling more data and better cross-selling of services to customers, then I’d be more confident buying the shares as a long term investment. At the moment though, growth is a little on the low side. This makes the dividend the main attraction of the shares. That said, I think the share price could be boosted in the short term by improved investor sentiment and investors looking for high yielding shares. This is making me look more closely at the share and the potential for it to bounce back.  I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

John Kirwan on upholding the tradition of the Baa-Baas

first_imgBarbarians v Australia, Twickenham, Sat 1 Nov, 2.30pm KOWant to know what else is in the mag this month? Then click here to find out. Tactical mind: John Kirwan plots the Wallabies downfall John Kirwan: “Coaching the Barbarians again is an honour and I see it as my responsibility to uphold our prestigious name and make sure it continues to be a viable option in the professional era.I need us to keep that tradition alive by playing incredibly well. What I’ve always liked about the Baa-Baas is their sense of fun and old-fashioned values. In a way, the Baa-Baas embody the ethos of rugby and that needs to be maintained. We need to compete, so we’ve put the best footie team forward to do that. Rugby is still the game I love and I think it’s really important we have occasions like this.Whenever you talk to the players, they really enjoy the week preceding a Baa-Baas Test. The last time I coached the Baa-Baas in London was in 2011, when my captain was World Cup winner John Smit. I spent a hugely enjoyable week with him. It’s usually Kiwis knocking ten bells out of South Africans and vice versa, but throw in a few Scottish and Argentinian guys, some South Sea Islanders and suddenly you have a really good mix and everyone gets on.Having fun: Nick Cummins is entering the Baa-Baas spiritWe’re desperate to give Australia a real game, especially at the start of their tour. I’ve been digging into my contacts book to pick the cream of the southern hemisphere talent. Big Frank Halai isa real excitement machine and it’s the same with Francis Saili – the wings are bigger than the locks. We’ve also got Nick Cummins operating in a roving role out wide. ‘The Badge’ can do what he wants! He’s a great guy.I will also pick a few exciting southern hemisphere players on the cusp of Test call-ups, so it will be a huge opportunity to showcase their talent on the big stage. They know a fair few of the Australians, which should really add some spice. Game-changer: Quade Cooper gives the Wallabies an extra attacking dimensionThe Wallabies gave us a cuffing (60-11) back in 2011 and we won’t want a repeat of that. They play a good style of footie so it should be a spectacle for fans. Under new coach Michael Cheika, they will be desperate to find a way to win. They’ve got some real balance, in the loose forwards especially. Take Michael Hooper – he’s a special player. A few years ago they may have said he’s too small for this level, but he’s rapid and a great breakdown operator. In the backs, someone like Quade Cooper can change a game and Israel Folau is Australia’s Sonny Bill Williams. He has incredible handling skills. Given an inch, he’ll punish you.I’m also looking forward to being back at Twickenham. You always get crowds. Last time I was there I snuck out into the car park and had a beer. That’s the sort of tradition you want kept on! You want to play at a sporting theatres like that.”center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS John Kirwan has yet again taken up the reins of the Barbarians to see if he can cause an upset against the Wallabies. Here he explains what the Baa-Baas mean to himlast_img read more

Royal British Legion uses social media thunderclap for online remembrance

first_imgThe Royal British Legion persuaded thousands of Twitter and Facebook users to send the same message about the Remembrance Day two minutes silence at exactly the same time yesterday morning.The campaign used the Thunderclap service used last month by Cancer Research UK and the Stand Up To Cancer campaign. It is designed to help a campaign message to stand out from other online content by co-ordinating its delivery timing.It enables Twitter users to show their support for a campaign by agreeing to let the service send a single message to their supporters at a set time on a particular day. In this way, all their followers will get to see the message at about the same time. Some will receive the same message from two or more contacts, generating, it is hoped, a wave of interest.

Funeral tribute card company encourages online in memoriam donations

first_img“A Giving Tribute has evolved over the past few years but the one thing that has remained is our desire to help charities,” said Mowatt.She explained: “We have been told from funeral directors that families can be reluctant to ask friends and relatives to spend money at a funeral and this even can include asking them to donate to charity. Adding details of the charity and the online giving URL is an opportunity for the bereaved family to really touch their friends with why the charity is important to them or to the deceased, and is far more powerful than simply being told “donations if desired to charity XYZ”.”The bereaved family send an email (that we send them) which invites friends and relatives to visit the site to learn of the funeral arrangements and to then create their complimentary tribute card in memory.”Online donations via a charity’s website will also boost Gift Aid income. Too many cash collections at funerals do not include a Gift Aid declaration on an envelope.The service is available to all charities and there is no charge. A Giving Tribute do not earn any commission of course on donations received via the charity’s giving page. Howard Lake | 24 July 2013 | News Funeral tribute card company encourages online in memoriam donations Funeral tribute card company A Giving Tribute is helping to promote online in memoriam giving to charities as part of its service.The company, established in 2009, lets family and friends create online tribute cards in memory of the deceased, together with a photo of them if they have one. These are then printed and delivered to the funeral director who displays them at the funeral on a cream or black ‘Tribleau’ display board. The aim is to add some more colour to funerals, 80% of which now request charitable donations instead of floral tributes, and provide a lasting and personal tribute to the deceased.Founder Liz Mowatt explains that, when the company adds funeral details to its website, it always tries to include information on any charity supported, with details of why it is important to the bereaved family. They also link to an online giving link on the charity’s website, where possible.
