Property investors! Should you buy this FTSE 100 dividend stock and its 5% yield in an ISA?

first_img Enter Your Email Address The share price crash that clothing retailer N Brown endured on Thursday should serve as a warning to those thinking of investing in the embattled retail sector.Land Securities Group (LSE: LAND), like N Brown, posted strong share price gains in 2019. The shopping centre and retail park operator gained 23% in value over the course of the year. This strength came despite a series of worrying trading updates and leaves its shares in danger of a severe price collapse, in my view.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…Losses mountingThe FTSE 100 firm certainly spooked investors with its latest financials in November. Back then it recorded a pre-tax loss of £147m for the six months to September, swinging from a profit of £42m a year earlier. It said that “the retail market continues to be challenged as retailers adapt to structural change, rising costs and a more cautious consumer.”LAND said that there had been “a number of high-profile company voluntary arrangements (CVAs) and administrations during the period” and that limited demand for space and poor investor sentiment was weighing on rental and capital values.It would be wrong to suggest that Landsec’s woes are just a reflection of the tough economic conditions in the UK, though intense Brexit uncertainty has seriously damaged the retail sector of late.The property giant is also suffering from citizens’ steady migration from bricks and mortar to cyberspace. This trend away from shopping on foot is a problem that threatens to last much longer than the current political and economic stresses that are damaging Landsec and its peers. According to Springboard, retail footfall in December has fallen in the UK for nine out of the past ten years and dropped 2.5% last month.Too much riskLand Securities faces some significant structural challenges. It’s why City analysts expect the Footsie firm to record a rare 2% earnings fall in the fiscal year ending March 2020. And the number crunchers expect the bottom line to remain under pressure after the current period – they predict a 3% profits drop in fiscal 2021.The chances of these insipid estimates being downgraded in the months ahead remain high, too. The popularity of online shopping continues to grow as retailers invest more and more money in their digital operations. The threat of Brexit uncertainty enduring through 2020 also undermines hopes of an improvement in shopper confidence.This is why Landsec’s bulky 5% dividend yield has no appeal for me. The chances of prolonged earnings pain, and a subsequent reversal in the share price, are too high in my opinion. Besides, a forward price-to-earnings ratio of around 17 times doesn’t reflect the company’s high risk profile, in my eyes. I’ll avoid it like the plague. Image source: Getty Images.

Is Aviva’s 9% dividend yield safe?

first_img Roland Head | Saturday, 7th March, 2020 | More on: AV Roland Head owns shares of Aviva. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The Aviva (LSE: AV) share price now offers a dividend yield of 9%. This makes the insurance giant one of three highest yielding stocks in the FTSE 100, by my calculations.That 9% is a very high dividend yield. Normally, I think you’d be right to worry about the risk of a cut. But in this case I think the payout could be safe, as I’ll explain.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…Comfortably coveredThe most common way to test whether a dividend is affordable is to compare it to a company’s earnings per share. This is known as dividend cover.Aviva scores well here. Last week the insurer reported 2019 earnings of 63.8p per share. The total dividend for the year was 30.9p per share, so giving dividend cover of 2.1 times. That’s generally a very comfortable level of payout.Look at the cashHowever, ultimately dividends are paid from a company’s cash flow. Accounting profits (earnings) don’t always match the surplus cash generated by a company each year.So if you really want to see how safe a dividend is, I think the acid test is to see whether it’s covered by free cash flow. This is the surplus cash generated by a business each year, after capital expenditure, tax and interest payments.My sums show that the Aviva dividend costs about £1.2bn each year. This payout is supported by the surplus cash generated by the group’s operating companies, which totalled £2.6bn last year.These numbers suggest to me that as in previous years, Aviva’s payout looks comfortably supported by the group’s cash generation.In my opinion, Aviva’s dividend looks very safe.What’s the catch?If it looks too good to be true, it probably isn’t true. These are wise words to live by, in my experience. So if Aviva’s 9% dividend yield is safe, what’s the catch?Aviva’s shares have been cheap for years because the group has struggled to deliver much growth. This remains a concern. Sales of general insurance (such as motor and home) rose by just 2% last year.A related problem is that Aviva’s profit margins are pretty average, in my view. The group’s underlying return on equity was 8.1% last year, which is not spectacular. Chief executive Maurice Tulloch is targeting a figure of 12% by 2022, but even this is still fairly modest.My viewIn my view, Aviva’s strength and investment appeal lies in its large size and strong cash generation. Last week’s results looked pretty solid to me, but there’s a reason for the stock’s cheap rating — this business is unlikely to expand very much further.If you want to invest in a business that will grow ahead of the wider market, I think there are better options elsewhere.But if you’re looking for a generous and reliable income, I don’t think Aviva’s low growth rate is a problem. Indeed, I think this insurance firm is one of the best pure income buys in the FTSE 100 today.

I would invest in BP shares at the current price

Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! BP has opted to maintain its dividend, which will cheer investors. However, this decision will place strain on BP’s balance sheet. With oil prices currently below the cost of pulling it out of the ground, BP loses money on every barrel it sells.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…Planned divestments, intended to strengthen the balance sheet, won’t raise as much cash as anticipated as buyers will demand lower prices for businesses that produce oil that costs money to sell. BP is planning to cut oil and gas-related spending, which will free up some cash, but maintaining the dividend could cost the company dearly if debt continues to rise and the oil price remains low for longer than expected.BP’s boss has expressed concern that oil demand might have already peaked, which does not bode well for prices. That leaves a large part of BP’s oil reserves, estimated to last 12 to 14 years with “normal” demand, in danger of becoming stranded assets.Hindsight is 20/20When I bought BP, I did not foresee a pandemic crippling the global economy. At the time, I was aware of the outbreak in China but thought something like the SARS outbreak of the 2000s would be the likely outcome. I failed to account for the fact that the world has changed, and China, and everywhere else is much more connected domestically and internationally now then it was back then.If I could have foreseen the extent of the pandemic, I still would have bought BP, but I would have waited and bought it cheaper than I actually did. I did not buy BP because I believe fossils fuels have their best days ahead of them. I bought BP because I believe it can transition and be a force to be reckoned with in a greener future.Going greenBP wants to be carbon-neutral by 2050. It is investing in alternative and renewable energy, and energy efficiency projects to meet that goal. Recently, BP called on governments to press ahead with tackling climate change. Maybe it just wants regulations to stop its rivals carrying on with oil and gas wholesale and without penalty.I think BP is committed to going green and that 12 to 14 years of oil reserves should be enough to see it through the transition, without hunting for more. The question is how BP will pay for the change when the traditional business is in the doldrums. A dividend cut is warranted and may be announced later in the year. That may annoy traditional investors. However, if BP gets the message that it is changing, it will attract an entirely new shareholder base.Saudi Arabia’s sovereign wealth fund recently bought heavily into BP. They either see it as very cheap oil and gas company or something different from the very same business that underpins their economy. Sovereign wealth funds have long time horizons and a lot of patience, and I will also have to bide my time with BP.
