ISA investors! 2 cheap stocks with BIG dividends I’m avoiding at all costs

first_img Marshall Motor Holdings (LSE:MMH) is a big-yielding share I feel that ISA investors should avoid at all costs. I don’t care about its low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 5.3 times. It’s mighty 8.5% dividend yield also doesn’t shake me. This is a share I won’t be buying for my own Stocks and Shares ISA.Car sales are tanking following the Covid-19 outbreak, and the threat of a painful and prolonged economic downturn — exacerbated by the prospect of a hard Brexit — paints a worrying picture for vehicle demand for this decade. Latest data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders showed sales of new autos sank to their lowest level since 1946 in April.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 AIM-quoted company saw like-for-like profits fall more than 4% in 2019 because of that aforementioned Brexit uncertainty. The shuttering of its showrooms more recently, and the threat posed by an upcoming recession, is particularly scary following a significant increase in the amount of debt on its books too. I plan to give this particular income share a wide berth.A FTSE 100 stockWould you be better off buying shares in FTSE 100 giant J Sainsbury (LSE: SBRY) for your ISA instead? It’s understandable that sales of big-ticket discretionary items are slumping right now and may keep doing so. But food is one of the essential purchases we cannot do without, whatever social, economic and political trouble is raging outside our windows.As one of the UK’s major online grocery retailers, Sainsbury’s is in great shape to ride this trend, right? Forecasts just released by GlobalData underline just how much this particular market is expected to grow by, with lockdown measures turbocharging orders from stranded shoppers and isolation hastening e-commerce adoption by new users.The research giant estimates that the online grocery retail market will grow by 25.5% in 2020, up from a prior estimate of 8.5%. According to GlobalData, steps by major UK supermarkets to expand their capacity for online orders will underpin this monumental surge. Sainsbury’s for one has opened up 50% more delivery slots than it had previously.More big riskThe coronavirus outbreak may have quickened the adoption of internet grocery shopping. However, it’s no reason to buy into Sainsbury’s today, I feel. Tough economic conditions may see consumers flock to low-cost physical retailers like Aldi and Lidl in huge numbers once lockdown measures are lifted, troubles that may stretch long into the 2020s.Besides, Sainsbury’s has long lagged its rivals like Tesco and Morrisons on the shop floor and in cyberspace. And signs are emerging that those German discounters are to take their first steps in the online grocery market too. The FTSE 100 share clearly has a lot more work to do to transform its sales performance before becoming a stock I’d consider buying.So forget its low forward P/E ratio of 10/1 times and bulky 5.6% dividend yield. You’d be better off shopping for other income shares for your ISA, in my opinion.

Now in its ninth year, the I Love my Librarian awards have honored only 80 librarians out of more than 15,000 nominations since 2008.“Anyone who knows Sherri is not surprised to learn she has received this very prestigious honor,” said Hillsides Chief Executive Officer Joseph M. Costa. “For the 10 years she has been the Hillsides librarian, she has turned the library into a safe haven for children in foster care and made it a hub of creative endeavors, from poetry writing to song writing to arts and crafts. Her dedication and talent working with an underserved but most deserving population of children is unparalleled.”Ginsberg serves as the librarian at Hillsides Education Center in Pasadena, California, an accredited therapeutic residential and day school offering individual education for students with social-emotional, learning, and/or behavioral challenges for children in kindergarten through 12th grade In addition, she offers library services for children who live in the Residential Treatment Services program located on the same campus, which serves children in the foster care system or who are unable to live at home for other reasons.

Ginsberg immediately expanded library services to Hillsides Education Center with a personalized curriculum for each class. Previously, many children had very little or no exposure to books due to their chaotic childhoods spent in foster care. She also started several enrichment programs for all the children, such as a Poets Program where local poets regular visit the library, and the MUSE-IQUE music series, where a local nonprofit exposes the children to different musical styles. In addition, Ginsberg has brought in hundreds of speakers and professional writers, such as Henry Winkler, Marlee Matlin, Kristi Yamaguchi, Laura Numeroff, and Catherine Linka, and Shannon Messenger.Ginsberg received her master’s degree in library science from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey and a Bachelor of Arts from Kean University in Union, New Jersey.

Flavonoid-rich foods and drinks may prevent erectile dysfunction

first_imgMen who consume just three or four weekly portions of foods and drinks containing flavonoids—which include berries, citrus fruits, and red wine—may reduce their risk of erectile dysfunction, according to a new study from researchers at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and the University of East Anglia. They also found that men who were physically active in addition to consuming high amounts of flavonoids had the lowest risk of erectile dysfunction.The study was published online January 13, 2016 in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.Making lifestyle choices to improve their erectile function may have the added benefit of improving men’s heart health, said senior author Eric Rimm, professor in the departments of epidemiology and nutrition at Harvard Chan. “Erectile dysfunction is often an early barometer of poor vascular function and offers a critical opportunity to intervene and prevent cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and even death,” he told The Telegraph in a January 13, 2016 article. “Men with erectile dysfunction are likely to be highly motivated to make healthier lifestyle choices, such as exercising more and eating the right foods—which would greatly benefit their long-term cardiovascular health as well.” Read Full Storylast_img read more
