Learn how you can grab this ‘Top Income Stock’ Report now Image source: Getty Images I believe investing in stocks and shares is one of the best ways to earn a passive income. However, this strategy might not be suitable for all investors. If a corporation’s profits suddenly slump, management may have no choice but to cut the dividend. This, unfortunately, happened to many firms last year. 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…Still, I’m comfortable with the level of risk involved in buying stocks and shares for a passive income. And with that in mind, here are two income stocks I’d buy today. Stocks and sharesThe first company on my list is financial services enterprise CMC Markets (LSE: CMCX). The group’s profits have exploded over the past year as it’s benefited from an influx of customers. The number of clients trading CFDs on its platform rose 34% in its financial year ending 31st March. Meanwhile, the number of stockbroking clients increased by 28%. Overall profit increased 127% to £224m year-on-year. Off the back of these results, management hiked the company’s ordinary dividend for the year by 104% to 30.6p, from 15p last year. These numbers suggest the stock offers a yield of 6.3%, at current levels. Based on these numbers, I’d buy CMC for my passive income portfolio of stocks and shares. However, while the company benefited from an explosion in business last year, it may not last. Clients may spend less time on CMC’s platforms as the economy reopens and lockdowns are eased. This may lead to reduced trading activity and, as a result, profits. If profits do decline, CMC may reduce its dividend next year. Passive incomeAlongside CMC, I’d also buy the oil giant BP (LSE: BP) for my passive income portfolio of stocks and shares. Last year, the company announced one of the most considerable losses in British corporate history as falling oil and gas prices inflicted pain on its portfolio. That led to a 50% cut in the group’s dividend as management pulled out all the stops to conserve cash. BP’s fortunes have improved dramatically over the past six months. It reported underlying first quarter profit of $2.6bn, up from $791m a year ago. What’s more, strong underlying free cash flow and asset sales have cut $18.1bn off net debt in 12 months.In my opinion, these figures suggest management has stabilised the business, which should support the company’s dividend. At the time of writing, the stock supports a dividend yield of 6.2%. That’s why I’d buy the stock for my passive income portfolio. Unfortunately, the company faces some unique risks not applicable to other stocks and shares. The global transition away from oil and gas towards renewable energy threatens its existence. While BP is planning to spend more over the next few years on renewable projects, this might not be enough. As such, the stock may not be suitable for all income investors. We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

Andrew CareySign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up andrewAS thousands of pensioners protested outside Government buildings over last week’s budget cutbacks, Taoiseach Enda Kenny travelled to Limerick to issue a warning against “scare mongering”.Speaking at the University of Limerick, Mr Kenny said that up to 97 per cent of older people will keep their medical cards, despite claims for the opposition that the government is targeting older people in “witch hunt” of medical card holders.He also insisted that older people would not be left without vital home security links following the abolition of their monthly telephone allowance.When asked about fears of a “grey revolt” in the wake of budget changes to eligibility for medical cards for those over 70, Mr Kenny warned against any “scare mongering”.“There isn’t any room for scare mongering to the effect that everybody is going to lose medical cards. There is a system here that is income based. Since this was centralised a number of years ago, the assessment process is the same for everybody so those people who are under the income guidelines for medical cards need have no worries,” he said.“The change made in eligibility affects a very small number of higher earning people over 70 and when that change is completed, the proportion of people over 70 who either have medical cards or GP cards will still be around 97per cent,” he added.Mr Kenny insisted he values greatly the contribution that older people continue to make to society. However he confirmed that there would be no roll back on the axing of telephone allowances for pensioners.When asked about fears among some older people that they will lose their link to emergency services without their telephone service, Mr Kenny said he is in talks with the Ministers for the Environment and Social Protection to arrange how this can be facilitated through digital technology.The Taoiseach also confirmed that there would be no cabinet reshuffle this year.“I have already indicated it will be in the second half of the government that will not happen this year. It is a matter I will reflect on,” he concluded.Mr Kenny was in Limerick to announce details of a €52 million research project at UL that will enhance its reputation as a world class research campus providing services and real life solutions to industry.

iStock(SAN FRANCISCO) — Hundreds of thousands of Californians are left in the dark after their electricity was turned off in an effort to reduce the risk of wildfires.Why does cutting the power help? Are there better solutions? Here’s what you need to know:Weather and powerThe power was preemptively cut to a wide swath of Northern California Wednesday and Thursday as high winds, which contribute to blazes, moved into the Golden State.A Pacific Gas and Electric meteorologist said the weather forecast this week is the strongest wind event since the Oct. 2017 North Bay fires which were caused by “electric power and distribution lines, conductors and the failure of power poles,” reported San Francisco ABC station KGO-TV.PG&E was found responsible for dozens of wildfires, including last year’s Camp Fire — the deadliest fire in California’s history. The Nov. 2018 Camp Fire in Northern California, which killed dozens, was sparked by power lines owned and operated by PG&E, Cal Fire said in May.Overnight, wind gusts climbed to over 70 mph in parts of Northern California, and the Merill Fire broke out, forcing evacuations. And because of very dry conditions, the Briceburg fire in Mariposa County quickly doubled in size, prompting evacuations.Southern California started to see preemptive power shutdowns Thursday as the worst of the gusty, dry winds moved into the region.The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration issued a rare extreme fire danger for Los Angeles County and Ventura County for Thursday where wind gusts could reach 70 mph. Coupled with low humidity, that’s a prime environment for a rapid fire spread.PG&E said it turned off power “to protect public safety” as gusty winds and dry conditions bring “a heightened fire risk.”“Once the weather subsides and it is safe to do so, PG&E crews will begin patrolling power lines, repairing damaged equipment and restoring customers,” the company said. “Outages (weather event plus restoration time) could last longer than 48 hours.”PG&E filed for bankruptcy after losing billions from the Camp Fire.Since PG&E was determined to be the root cause, “the burden of those liability claims, coupled with the state legislature [which] determined [PG&E] could not raise rates to pay for those, they couldn’t use rate payer money to pay for those fire-related claims, they would have to use shareholder money,” said Catherine Wolfram, who is a professor at the University of California at Berkeley and an expert on energy policy with the campus’ Energy Institute.Without enough shareholder money to cover the cost, they had to file bankruptcy, Wolfram said.“PG&E right now is very gun-shy of taking any risks” and doesn’t “want to be liable if something goes wrong,” said Stephanie Pincetl, a professor at UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability and director of the California Center for Sustainable Communities. “They’re trying to manage their risk, and if I was in their shoes I would probably do the same thing, ’cause you don’t know.”One problem contributing to the fire risk is houses being developed in places where they shouldn’t, Pincetl said. When subdivisions are built in especially dry, windy and wooded areas of California, the homes need power, but they’re at higher risk for fires, Pincetl said.There’s also the massive area to patrol.“PG&E has a very, very, very extensive grid,” Pincetl said. “So it means that you have hundreds of thousands of miles really of transmission that you need to be very vigilant about in keeping upgraded, and that includes brush clearing.”The shutdown also “shows that PG&E, the public utilities commission and regulators have not really worked to figure out strategies to mitigate the potential of wildfire driven by our electricity infrastructure,” Pincetl said.“The utilities have known for a while now, I would say several years,” Pincetl said, “that change in climate and the accumulation of brush around the pathways of the grid-lines that there is an increased chance of wildfire being caused by a spark from the grid or some other incident.”“We probably have to stop building in places where we’re putting people at risk,” Pincetl said. “Whether it’s a grid-caused fire, or an ignition from a car engine, or your lawnmower or something else, those are not places where people should be living and expect all the tax payers of the state to bail them out.”She also suggests gradually investigating in local sources of energy like wind, geo-thermal and solar.Another way to stop preemptive shutoffs during high-wind events would be moving power lines underground, said Wolfram — “but that’s really, really expensive.”Another option is putting “sophisticated sensors on the lines” which can detect if a power line is falling and de-energize it before it hits the ground, said Wolfram.“There’s speculation that this [preemptive shutoff] is PG&E’s way of saying, it [underground power lines] might be expensive, but the alternative is to have these shutoffs,” said Wolfram.“There are definitely ongoing negotiations and discussions about what to do given the fire risk created by electricity,” Wolfram said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The ergonomics of the typical environments in which laptops are used – cars,trains, planes or the living-room sofa, for instance – are particularly poor.This can lead to discomfort and musculoskeletal conditions, particularly of theneck, back and arms as well as visual or stress-related problems. If the laptop is necessary for work and is used for extended periods thenthe Display Screen Equipment Regulations (1992) apply and there is a duty ofcare on the part of the employer. Companies may be exposing themselves to legalaction by not putting in place adequate and proper systems to comply with theregulations to ensure peripatetic staff are using laptops in a manner which isnot likely to lead to ill health. Dr McAtemney concluded by offering practical solutions to setting up laptopworkstations ergonomically. Related posts:No related photos.
