Why these top FTSE 100 dividends could be slipping

first_imgWhy these top FTSE 100 dividends could be slipping On Tuesday, Severn Trent revealed a new dividend policy, telling us it intends to base it on something called CPIH. On Wednesday, it was the turn of United Utilities (LSE: UU), which said the same thing. They came amid talk of final determinations and the start of a new asset management period (AMP). But what does it all mean?It’s all about negotiations with water regulator Ofwat, and the resulting regular five-year plans. The latest talks started in 2018 when the water firms submitted their plans for the next cycle. After examination, Ofwat issued its final determinations, which it says “set out a five-year price and service package that will enable water companies to deliver more for people today, invest for future generations and at the same time operate more efficiently and reduce bills.“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…Five yearsEach five-year cycle is known as an AMP. AMP6 is the outgoing period covering 2015-2020, with AMP7 taking over for 2020-2025. The latter commits firms to investing £51bn over the next five years on improving the water business.The process seems to have gone smoothly for United Utilities, which has accepted Ofwat’s final determination for AMP7. United said: “Our plan for AMP7 was fast-tracked through the price review process recognising the high quality and ambition it demonstrated, setting a new standard for the sector.“On one hand, this like good news to me. It means less uncertainty, and another five years of relative clarity over capital expenditure and revenues. And that clarity is what sets aside the utilities sector and leads to robust share prices. Investors, especially the big institutions, really don’t like uncertainty, and they’ll often value dividend reliability over bigger yields.All well and good, but there’s one development here that disturbs me a little, and it’s that new buzzword, CPIH.ChangesPreviously, United Utilities based its dividend rises on Retail Price Index (RPI) inflation. But it now says it “will target growing its dividend per share by CPIH inflation each year from 2019/20 through to 2024/25.” CPIH is defined as the Consumer Prices Index including owner occupiers’ housing costs, but what’s the difference?The firm says: “The change from the current RPI growth to the lower CPIH growth for AMP7 is consistent with the change to CPIH as the basis for indexing allowed revenues.”So future dividend rises are going to be smaller. If the allowed indexing of revenues has been restricted to CPIH inflation, then it seems fair dividends should be similarly indexed. But it does seem to mean lower customer price rises being passed on to shareholders as lower dividend increases.Under pressureHow big is the difference? According to the Office for National Statistics, 12-month RPI inflation for December 2019 stood at 2.2%, but the CPIH inflation figure was lower at 1.4%. United Utilities expects to pay a dividend of 42.6p for the year to March 2020, so how might that progress over the next decade?Lifting it each year by the December RPI inflation figure of 2.2% would grow that 42.6p to 53p per share in 10 years. But at CPIH inflation of 1.4% it would only reach 49p. You need to bear that in mind if you’re investing in water companies.

Super Rugby Pick of the Week – Round 18

first_imgWednesday Jun 22, 2011 Super Rugby Pick of the Week – Round 18 For various reasons, we haven’t had a Super Rugby Pick of the Week clip on here for a few rounds. We’ll try and catch up with a dump of the missing ones soon, but for now here’s the best tries scored in the final round of pool play, round 18.We’re now into the knock out stages, as the top 6 have been decided. The first round of Qualifierswill take place this coming weekend, with the fourth placed Blues playing the fifth placed Waratahs, in Auckland.On Saturday the Crusaders, who finished in first place in the New Zealand conference, will host the Sharks, who sprung somewhat of an upset as they beat the Bulls in Pretoria this past weekend. The respective winners of those two matches will then progress to the Semi Finals.The Queensland Reds finished the tournament in top position overall, so they have a home semi, where they will meet the winner of the lowest placed qualifier. The Stormers, second on the overall table and South African conference winners, will also have a home semi, and host the highest placed qualifier. Those matches will take place in two weeks time.It can all be a little confusing, but at this stage, it’s actually quite straight forward. The final table has been included at the end of this video, and before that, some of the best tries of the weekend.

Prudential offers NeuroFlow platform to improve mental health of disability claimants

first_img Facebook Facebook By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 Pinterest Prudential offers NeuroFlow platform to improve mental health of disability claimants WhatsApp Twitter Twittercenter_img WhatsApp NEWARK, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– Behavioral health conditions impact 50 million Americans. 1 Despite the growing need for resources, insufficient access to care remains the greatest barrier to addressing issues including anxiety, depression, grief, and substance use disorder. 2 Prudential Group Insurance (Prudential), a business unit of Prudential Financial, Inc. ( NYSE: PRU ), is helping to improve access to care by offering NeuroFlow ®, a behavioral health and care management solution and tool, to its disability insurance claimants. Prudential believes this access will help improve disability outcomes for its claimants, including helping them return to work. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210209005895/en/ Kristin Tugman, Ph.D., CRC, LPC, Vice President of Health and Productivity Analytics and Consulting Practice, Prudential Group Insurance (Photo: Business Wire) NeuroFlow provides access to care coordination services and crisis intervention, as well as self-service tools for psychoeducation, relaxation, coping skills training and more. The platform leverages data analytics and artificial intelligence to inform measurement-based care such as identifying at-risk claimants and to recommend tools and content through the app intended to improve their disability experience and outcomes. Unlike other mental health applications, users will have access to a real-life care coordinator for additional support. As part of its commitment to managing its claims effectively and helping claimants return to work, Prudential’s work with NeuroFlow expands its prominent behavioral health resources, including manager sensitivity training and ongoing industry research to address the three barriers to mental health improvement: awareness, stigma and access to care. “Prudential has long advocated for addressing the psychological impact that accompanies injuries or illnesses that put someone out of work. That need has become much more urgent with the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Dr. Kristin Tugman, vice president of Health and Productivity Analytics and Consulting Practice for Prudential Group Insurance. “The drastic changes to how we live and work have only made our mental health crisis worse and more complex. Improving access to behavioral health resources was a natural next step in supporting our claimants and helping them return to work.” America’s mental health crisis is also impacting the workplace, resulting in 1.6 billion workdays lost per year. 3 According to Tugman, employers may feel they have a business imperative to add mental health resources to their suite of workplace benefits. “We believe it prioritizes the wellbeing of employees, but also helps improve productivity, faster return to work and reduces absence costs.” Prudential chose to work with NeuroFlow in part for its record of performance and proven outcomes. The platform’s engagement rates historically outperform industry benchmarks. NeuroFlow’s sustained user engagement, combined with improved access to care, has resulted in impacts in non-disability related areas, including reducing emergency department utilization. Based on NeuroFlow’s impact in these other areas, Prudential believes NeuroFlow’s work will also result in improved disability outcomes for Prudential’s claimants. Prudential plans to have NeuroFlow available to most disability claimants in 2Q 2021. About Prudential Group Insurance Prudential Group Insurance manufactures and distributes a full range of group life, long-term and short-term disability and corporate and trust-owned life insurance in the U.S. to institutional clients primarily for use within employee and membership benefit plans.
