Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. It’s great news that stock markets are bouncing off their recent lows. But investors need to be mindful that they could be swept lower again as the coronavirus continues its global spread.The infection rate here in the UK certainly continues to accelerate. Health minister Matt Hancock has just announced that the number of confirmed cases has spiked to 51 from 39 early on Monday. A report released by the OECD yesterday illustrates the threat that COVID-19 poses to the global economy. Bear in mind, though, that the pandemic is still in its early stages. Things could end up being much worse than is currently forecast.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…Great newsIt pays, then, to keep investing in safe-haven shares. In my opinion there’s plenty of scope for these to continue rising as worries over the coronavirus — as well as the macroeconomic issues spilling over from 2019 like Brexit and trade wars — continue to play on market nerves.One brilliant flight-to-safety asset I’d buy today is Greatland Gold (LSE: GGP). It’s not that the precious metals producer is a great play on the likelihood of strong bullion prices in 2020. This Australia-focused digger is a great buy because of strong news flow on the exploration front.Most recently Greatland released exciting news concerning its Havieron asset in Western Australia. It said that mining giant Newcrest Mining — which has a farm-in agreement to explore and develop Havieron — has raised the number of rigs working at the site to eight, up from six previously.Newcrest, which has the right to earn up to a 70% interest in a 12-block area within E45/4701 that covers Havieron (providing it spends $65m on the project), is looking to start an exploration decline by the end of the year, Greatland says.Top updatesThis is not the only news to have cheered investors of late. In early February it announced that it had intersected a high-grade gold mineralisation at its Derby North prospect at the Warrentinna project in Tasmania. The results of this maiden diamond drilling programme are now being evaluated to assess the asset’s potential.Greatland has also released positive data from its Firetower drilling programme in Tasmania, another asset in which it has been investing aggressively. Testing here either side of the New year has revealed that there is “growing potential for a robust, near-surface gold system.” Work has shown “additional broad widths of shallow gold mineralisation,” as well as zinc and silver mineralisation at Firetower East.150% up!Investing in any sort of commodities producer is a risky business. Exploration and production results can often disappoint and prompt huge share price downgrades.Greatland, however, really has the bit between its teeth right now. And the prospect of more gold price strength as the coronavirus tragedy — along with a series of other geopolitical and macroeconomic issues — persists makes the digger a top buy too, I think. It’s why the share price has leapt 150% since the start of 2020 alone. I’d happily buy this share to protect myself in the current climate.

How I’d earn monthly passive income from just 3 dividend shares

first_imgHow I’d earn monthly passive income from just 3 dividend shares “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Image source: Getty Images. Every month I receive passive income. That’s money I earn without having to work for it.My approach to this monthly passive income stream has been very simple. I don’t spend time setting up wacky or unproven income streams. Instead, I have set up a monthly passive income stream by investing in FTSE 100 shares.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…That involves shares in a variety of companies. But here’s how I could receive monthly passive income by investing in just three different shares.Dividend timingCompanies do not pay out dividends at the same time. Some pay none, some pay annually, and many pay twice a year, with an interim dividend followed later by a final one.However, some UK shares pay on a quarterly basis. By investing in three of those, I should be able to receive monthly passive income. It just requires a bit of research on my part.For example, tomorrow Imperial Brands will pay out a quarterly dividend. Its payouts are scheduled for March, June, September, and December. I’m looking forward to receiving passive income from Imperial tomorrow.Last month, I got income for no work from Imperial’s tobacco rival British American Tobacco. Its dividend calendar runs a month before Imperial’s. Next month I could receive a dividend from GlaxoSmithKline if I held its shares. The GSK dividend calendar foresees payouts in January, April, July, and October.With those three choices, I would hope to receive passive income on a monthly basis.Risk diversification for passive incomeTo be clear, I wouldn’t choose a share based on its payout date – I would assess a company’s business potential and likely ability to generate passive income.Dividends are never guaranteed. GSK has already said its dividend will likely be cut following a demerger of its business. For my own portfolio, I would want to spread my risk across more than three shares. Holding two-thirds in one sector, as in this example, heightens my risk. For example, the tobacco industry could be hit by declining numbers of smokers. That would reduce the companies’ ability to pay dividends.That’s why I have chosen to invest in a broader portfolio of companies and sectors.The point of my example is to highlight that the timing of dividend payments could have a significant impact on my passive income streams. If I only wanted to put money in shares and wait for long-term capital appreciation, that might not matter. But with an objective of earning passive income, a monthly stream could match more neatly to my regular outgoings. By contrast, investing in some shares could mean receiving  no passive income for months on end and then suddenly getting a pile of dividends all in one month.Into actionBased on this thinking, there are a couple of action steps I would take.First, I’d consider what my passive income goals are. Does it matter if money arrives unevenly or would I prefer to target a regular income goal?Secondly, I’ll continue to bear this in mind when constructing and adjusting my portfolio. I wouldn’t buy a share just because of its payout schedule. But instead of focusing just on how much passive I’d hope a share would produce, I’ll also look into when it might be paid.

RBS Six Nations: Wales 27-23 Scotland

Wales and Scotland played out an entertaining game in which the hosts emerged victors but only after a stern test from a pumped-up Scotland outfit. Gareth Davies got the scoring underway with an opportunist try, streaking in from 40 meters, but their lead was to last for a matter of minutes before Tommy Seymour was sent in by Finn Russell‘s cultured dink over the top of the Wales defence. Scotland were the better of the two teams in the first half, and after Laidlaw and Biggar swapped penalties, a final kick of the half gave Scotland the advantage going in at the break.In the second-half, Scotland again started the brighter, and Laidlaw again game them the lead until the 64th minute, where after concerted pressure, Jamie Roberts crashed over. Wales were to stretch their lead to 11 points with eight minutes left on the clock as George North, put months of frustration behind him, to find a sharp line to run in from 40 metres. Last word went to Duncan Taylor who was put through a gap by Duncan Weir to go over for a fine score.What’s hotFlair is backAfter a dour tournament to date, within 10 minutes, two tries had been scored to restore faith in enterprising play. First Dan Biggar‘s cute chip was flapped back – basketball style – by Jamie Roberts for Gareth Davies to streak in, and just minutes later Finn Russell’s dink over the Welsh defence was read by Tommy Seymour to dot down. With fine individual tries from North and Taylor in the second-half, it was a game to restore faith in a tournament that finally spluttered into life. Can they do it on a dank night in Cardiff in February? Yes they can.Finishing touch: Tommy Seymour opened Scotland’s account after a finely worked tryAerial battlesWe lost count of the amount of times the ball was sent skyward up into the lights of the Principality Stadium, but the finesse and bravery of the players collecting the balls was a delight to watch. Tommy Seymour, Stuart Hogg and Dan Biggar were all seen taking flight and regathering the ball, with little though of their safety. It’s become an arresting sight in games and despite the obvious risks, we hope it continues.Jamie Roberts rolling back the yearsWith his gifted rival at 12, Scott Williams expected back in April, Jamie Roberts is consolidating his No 12 shirt with some match defining displays. In many people’s eyes, Roberts was very unfortunate to not to pick up the Man of the Match award in Ireland after a hugely physical but there was no doubting his impact at the Principality Stadium. His try in the 64th minute was typical Roberts, powering over from short range for his 10th Wales try. Then on 76 minutes he showed his power, hitting Blair Cowan so hard that he had to leave the field. It’s turning into a vintage tournament for ‘the Doc’.Hammer time: Jamie Roberts celebrates after his score puts Wales in the leadWhat’s notWales’ width is a work in progressIn the first-half, George North and Tom James were virtual bystanders and the ball refused to make it to the wide channels. Much has been made of Wales’ intent to play a more expansive game but it’s clearly taking time to manufacture a new playing style. In the last quarter there were promising signs, as Scottish legs tired and Wales were able to fashion more openings in the wide channels.Scotland inability to finish the jobVern Cotter‘s men were good value for their lead until the 62nd minute. They had the better of the aerial exchanges and created more linebreaks. However, Wales’ were still able to win to conspire the Scots to a ninth consecutive Six Nations loss. The Welsh bench made a difference – bringing on a 121-cap prop and British & Irish Lion helps – and by the time North streaked over, Scotland were 11 points down. Their defence didn’t help only a 79% success rate. Until Cotter’s men can play the ’80 minute game’, they will continue to fill the role of plucky losers.Top Taylor: Duncan Taylor finished with a fina individual score for ScotlandOver zealous celebrating winning a scrum penaltyIt’s a modern trend that when a side wins a scrum penalty, the whole team trots over clapping their hands and slapping players on the backside in an elaborate manner. Both sides were at it at the Principality Stadium. Whether this serves to dishearten the opposition or rile them into action is a moot point.

The company also states that all records are IoF, Data Protection Act and Privacy & Electronic Communications Regulations (PECR) compliant, and adhere to the ICO guidelines and DMA Code.The data has been gathered from on- and offline surveys and questionnaires, where individuals have confirmed that they are charity donors and have provided their consent for their details to be shared with third parties for sales, marketing and fundraising purposes.The database is aimed at charities for health and medical, animal, cancer and environmental causes. To create it, DBS has extracted key characteristics from its pre-existing 2.5 million charity donor file and overlaid it with its LifeBase pool of 46 million consumer records. Charities can reach donors by mail, email and Facebook, based on the types of charities the person donates to, and the value and frequency of their donations.DBS Data managing director Adam Williams said:“We have taken the decision to place usage limits on the data to prevent households from being bombarded with donation requests which can lead to apathy. In doing so we hope that this will help charities to stand out in their marketing communications and increase donations.”center_img Melanie May | 21 December 2015 | News  40 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
