Global economic growth is slowing. There was the recent US-Iran crisis that got many investors panicking also. Even though oil momentarily shot to about $71 a barrel, now it is almost back to where it was.Still, in spite of the projected further fall in the price of oil, you might want to consider getting yourself some Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB).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…A dividend kingShell is a dividend king. Presently, its yield is 6.3%, the highest of the oil companies. Only BP comes close, at just over 6%. Notably, though, there are concerns that the company might have to sacrifice its dividend payments if the price of oil does not hold up in the coming years.Also, there is the rising long-term debt profile stemming from the 2016 $53 billion acquisition of BG Group and other capital expenses. Nevertheless, a dividend cut is highly unlikely as the company is progressing towards the range of $28 billion to $33 billion organic free cash flow by the end of 2020.Shell is forging onNaturally, oil – the “fuel of the world” – is highly susceptible to regular swings in price. For instance, between late 2015 and early 2016 the price tanked, leading to disappointing performances for Shell, ExxonMobil and most of their peers.Add to that the persistent debates on oil use that have been garnering more support in recent years. Environmental and workplace safety concerns are at the top of the list of the highly scrutinising factors under which the oil industry is becoming increasingly assessed.As a result of these concerns, the world is making efforts towards deflecting to a lower-carbon economy. In fact, in 2019 in the United States, the rising use of natural gas pushed coal to its lowest demand in more than four decades.The good news, however, is that Shell is responding quite well to these industry developments. The oil giant is investing heavily in natural gas. In fact, since 2018, its integrated gas business has been the largest contributor to its net income, affirming the company’s dedication to a more renewable-based energy future.ConclusionRoyal Dutch Shell is properly responding to the changing landscape of its industry. Especially, the company is strongly positioning itself to benefit highly from future growth in renewables. Presently, focusing on solar, it is leading the way in clean energy investments.In fact, if there is a company that is well poised to benefit from the far-ranging potentials of oil today, it is Shell. And if there is a company that is less probable to suffer if the world completes its transition to a lower-carbon economy, it is also Shell. The partnership with Qatargas, its LNG Canada joint venture and its Prelude FLNG project in Australia, are all lofty attempts towards ensuring that.Therefore, Shell is as solid as ever. And at its current dividend yield of 6.3%, it makes a good buy if you are an income investor.

“This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Right now, I’d buy this high-quality FTSE 100 share paying a big dividend Image source: Getty Images.

See all posts by Kevin Godbold I think this high-quality FTSE 100 share is attractive. The recent falls in the stock market have thrown up some interesting opportunities. There are some big dividend yields available from stable and defensive companies. And some firms with fallen share prices won’t likely suffer as badly in any coronavirus-induced recession that may follow. Premium spiritsThe FTSE 100’s Diageo (LSE: DGE) supplies premium-branded alcoholic drinks around the world. It’s a great, cash-generating business. And, over the years, the shares have become prized by investors.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…On 26 February, the company released a trading update about the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak. In Greater China and the Asia Pacific region, the directors expect a hit to on-trade sales in bars, restaurants, coffee shops, clubs, hotels and other places. But they reckon revenue could gradually improve through the fourth quarter of 2020.Organic net sales will likely fall between £225m and £325m in the region and organic operating profit between £140m and £200m. To put that into perspective, sales from the region were around £5,356m last year. So the maximum estimated reduction to total sales from the region is about 7%.However, revenue from the Asia Pacific region, including China, is running at just 26% of overall revenue. At the time of the update, the directors hadn’t ruled out sales weakness from other trading geographies. But they didn’t mention sales destined for home consumption. I’m assuming the pandemic won’t much affect the turnover from retail sales reaching the end-customer via shops, supermarkets and other outlets. Restrictions on social gatherings could biteWe know now that the UK and other governments have either encouraged or enforced restrictions regarding people meeting in places served by the hospitality sector. So I’m estimating that further reductions in sales from hospitality premises will end up affecting more of its overall revenue outside the Asia Pacific.However, for me, the key takeaway from Diageo’s update is that the damage will be temporary. Maybe lasting for approximately the rest of 2020 and likely limited to on-sales only.The update contains a positive note about the outlook. The directors are “confident” in the growth opportunities for the business in Greater China and the Asia Pacific region. The firm will continue to invest in its brands to make sure it’s “strongly positioned” for the recovery in consumer demand the company expects. The valuation attracts me nowMeanwhile, with the share price near 2,519p, it’s still around 23% down from its position in mid-January, despite bouncing back a bit over the past couple of days. And, at this level, the forward-looking dividend yield for the trading year to June 2021 is around 3%. I think the valuation is attractive.You’re never going to see a quality business like this selling at a bargain-basement valuation. But Diageo has rock-solid defensive credentials and a long record of incremental growth in revenue, earnings, cash flow and shareholder dividends.I think the stock is a great candidate for a long-term hold. And it could become a decent compounding machine within a balanced and diversified portfolio of similar holdings. Kevin Godbold has no position in any share mentioned.

Linkedin Just 33.49 per cent of the electorate turned out to vote on Saturday November 10 last with the referendum passed on a 58 per cent to 41 per cent majority. It is claimed by the petitioners that the Government used public money to sway the campaign and therefore it had a material effect on the outcome.Ms Kennelly claims that in voting yes through the postal voting facility, her vote was swayed in light of the subsequent Supreme Court ruling that the Government referendum campaign material was not impartial and weighed towards the yes vote campaign.In an affidavit to the court, she said that her vote relied upon the information provided by the Government in influencing her to vote yes. Ms Kennelly later learned of the Supreme Court ruling but it was too late to change her vote and her affidavit claimed that she “trusted the Government to provide her with fair and impartial information.”Ms Kennelly voted two weeks before the public vote on November 10 and was “shocked and angered” at the outcome of the poll in light of the Supreme Court ruling prior to referendum day.Journalist and commentator John Waters is also supporting the petitioners and has submitted an affidavit to that effect.This week, the High Court ordered that the women were to receive a copy of the Supreme Court ruling and they are seeking leave to appeal that the onus should be on the State to prove that the breach had no material effect.

He had two sons Bali Ram and Sher Singh. Sher Singh died in the year 1953 issueless leaving his widow Jagno. After death of Sher Singh, his widow inherited share of her late husband, i.e., the half of the agricultural property owned by Badlu. Jagno’s brother’s sons filed a suit in 1991 claiming decree of declaration as owners in possession of the said agricultural land . They claimed that Jagno, who was sharer of the half share, had in a family settlement settled the land in their favour who were the brother’s sons. Later descendants of Jagno’s. Taking note of the written statement in which Jagno admitted this claim, the Trial Court passed a consent decree. Later, the descendants of brother of husband of Smt. Jagno filed a suit claiming that this consent decree is illegal. Before the Apex Court, the following were the issues: (1) Whether the decree dated 19.08.1991 passed in Civil Suit No.317 of 1991 requires registration under Section 17 of the Indian Registration Act, 1908?; and (2) Whether the defendant Nos.1 to 3 (Jagno’s brothers’ sons) were strangers to defendant No.4 (Jagno) so as to disable her to enter into any family arrangement with defendant Nos.1 to 3?According to the appellants, there was no existing right in the plaintiffs of Civil Suit No.317 of 1991, hence the decree dated 19.08.1991 required registration under Section 17(1)(b) since decree created right in favour of the plaintiffs. They referred to Bhoop Singh Vs. Ram Singh Major 1995 SCC (5) 709, in which it was held that decree or order including compromise decree granting new right, title or interest in praesenti in immovable property of value of Rs.100 or above is compulsorily registrable. On the other hand, respondents relief on Som Dev and Ors. Vs. Rati Ram (2006) 10 SCC 788, in which the decree was based on an admission recognising pre-existing rights under family arrangement and it was held that the the decree did not require registration under Section 17(1)(b).The bench noticed a subsequent judgment in K. Raghunandan and Ors. Vs. Ali Hussain Sabir and Ors., (2008) 13 SCC 102 in which it was held that if the consent terms create a right for the first time as contradistinguished from recognition of a right, registration thereof would be required, if the value of the property is Rs 100 and upwards. It also referred to a recent judgment in Mohammade Yusuf & Ors. Vs. Rajkumar & Ors., 2020(3) SCALE 146, and held:This Court held that since the decree which was sought to be exhibited was with regard to the property which was subject matter of suit, hence, was not covered by exclusionary clause of Section 17(2) (vi) and decree did not require registration. The issue in the present case is squarely covered by the above judgment. We, thus, conclude that in view of the fact that the consent decree dated 19.08.1991 relate to the subject matter of the suit, hence it was not required to be registered under Section 17(2) (vi) and was covered by exclusionary clause. Thus, we, answer question No.1 that the consent decree dated 19.08.1991 was not registrable and Courts below have rightly held that the decree did not require registration.Answering the other issue, the Court observed that ‘family settlement’ can be entered by a Hindu woman with her heirs on her parental side.

iStock/Thinkstock(WEST MEMPHIS, Ark.) — An Arkansas police officer is dead after a fluke incident in which he was struck by a stray bullet while in his home.Capt. Joe Baker, of the West Memphis, Arkansas, police said the officer from nearby Forrest City was struck by the bullet at about 3:30 p.m. Saturday afternoon. The officer, identified as Oliver Johnson, was off-duty at the time and not involved in law enforcement activities when he was killed.An altercation between two groups broke out and shots were fired outside of the officer’s residence, Baker said. Johnson was not the intended target.Johnson was the father of two young girls, according to Memphis ABC affiliate WATN.Baker also said a vehicle was involved, but was not able to confirm whether it was a drive-by shooting.A full investigation is underway.“Obviously it’s a tragic situation when anybody is killed,” Baker said at a press conference outside the victim’s home. “This hits everybody a little close to home in law enforcement, he was a police officer. Some of our officers did in fact know him. Our cities are pretty close, a lot of our officers had interactions [with him].”Johnson lived in West Memphis, Arkansas, just over the Mississippi River from Memphis, Tennessee, but was a police officer with the Forrest City Police Department. Forrest City is located about 40 miles west of West Memphis.Neighbors told WATN they heard as many as 40 shots outside Johnson’s home.“When I stepped outside one of his nephews yelled, ‘My uncle has been shot.’ So, when I went in the house, I found him shot and me and my husband tried to do CPR,” neighbor Portia Weatherspoon told WATN.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
