They may have experienced periods of uncertainty in recent years, but could produce improved performances.Imperial BrandsThe performances of tobacco companies such as Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB) have been highly disappointing over recent years. While they once offered consistent growth in earnings, regulatory changes and the introduction of next-generation products such as e-cigarettes have caused a significant amount of disruption.This has left investors feeling unsure about the outlook for the wider industry as cigarette volumes decline and the market for e-cigarettes is subject to regulatory risks. As such, Imperial Brands now trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 7.2, while its dividend yield is 10.6%. These figures suggest that investors have priced in a wide margin of safety, which may mean that the company’s risk/reward ratio is highly favourable.Looking ahead, a new CEO could make changes to Imperial Brands’ strategy in the coming months. Furthermore, an evolving backdrop for the wider industry may mean that the outlook for the tobacco sector changes. With the company focusing on growing its next-generation products and still having a strong position in the cigarette segment, it could produce a brighter financial performance than is currently being priced-in by investors. As such, now could be the right time to buy a slice of it for the long term.National GridAnother FTSE 100 share that offers a high dividend yield at the present time is utility company National Grid (LSE: NG). Its recent results highlighted the progress it is making with its strategy. The company is on track to deliver £50m in cost savings in the UK, as well as $30m in cost savings across its US operations, in the current financial year.It has also delivered solid profit growth, which could help to increase its dividend payments over the medium term. At the present time, National Grid has a dividend yield of 5.2%, which is relatively high compared to its historic average. That’s despite the company’s shares having gained a boost following the general election, with the threat of nationalisation now having gone.While utility stocks such as National Grid are unlikely to offer strong capital returns, their defensive characteristics could become increasingly popular among investors. The world economy faces numerous short-term risks, such as a trade war, and this may mean that investors seek lower-risk stocks in the coming months. As such, investing in the company and obtaining a relatively high yield could prove to be a sound move.

Archbishop of Canterbury faces ‘a challenge for the imagination’

It’s something we need to continue.“That challenge to the imagination is something that is constantly renewed and we need to be very reactive to it, and not allow ourselves to get bogged down in looking inward.”The archbishop’s comments are part of his interview in the second edition of Anglican World, a magazine that has been reporting on the life and mission of the Anglican Communion for several decades. Production was suspended in 2007, but it was relaunched in November 2012.Along with the feature on Archbishop Welby, the latest edition features articles on the 100th anniversary of the Anglican Diocese of Iran, a major youth conference in Central Africa, the commissioning of the Mothers’ Union’s new worldwide president, and the triennial ACC gathering of Anglicans from around the world, which was this time in Auckland, New Zealand.The full-color magazine is filled with pictures as well as links to videos of Anglican and Episcopal life from right around the globe.

US Ethanol Stocks hit Four-Week Low

first_img Facebook Twitter US ethanol stocks for the week ended May 16 shed 312,000 barrels to a four-week low of 16.99 million barrels despite a production rise of 3,000 b/d to 925,000 b/d, Energy Information Administration data showed Wednesday. The stocks draw was unexpected by most sources after production and imports were strong in the previous reporting week. One trader source credited the draw to firm blending demand. Imports retreated to 11,000 b/d after hitting an eight-month high of 43,000 b/d in the previous week. In immediate reaction to the data, US ethanol prices turned sharply bullish, with values adding 5-10 cents/gal in prompt markets, sources said.The four-week rolling average of gasoline demand rose 186,000 b/d to a seven-month high of 8.944 million b/d, and the four-week rolling average of the refiner and blender net ethanol input rose 9,000 b/d to 872,000 b/d. The weekly refiner and blender net ethanol input, however, nudged down 4,000 b/d to 886,000 b/d.US ethanol stocks fell in all but one region. East Coast ethanol stocks moved down 23,000 barrels to 6.354 million barrels, ending an eight-week rise after hitting a 10-month high the previous week.Gulf Coast stocks fell 181,000 barrels to 2.789 million barrels, and West Coast stocks declined 140,000 barrels to 1.81 million barrels. Rocky Mountain stocks were 14,000 barrels lower at 288,000 barrels. Midwest stocks, on the other hand, rose 46,000 barrels to 5.749 million barrels, rebounding from a five-month low.As the proportional decline in blending demand was outweighed by the rising gasoline demand, the four-week rolling average of the ethanol blending rate — calculated by dividing the four-week rolling averages of the net ethanol input and gasoline demand — fell 0.1 percentage point to a 9.75%, 0.25 percentage point shy of the 10% “blend wall.”The blend wall occurs when the maximum amount of the US gasoline pool has been blended to a level of 10% ethanol. Refiners then will be under pressure to run higher ethanol blends, buy renewable credits known as RINs or push for Congress to alter the Renewable Fuel Standard.

Indiana Corn and Soybean Checkoff Organizations Roll Out New Strategic Plan

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter The Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Corn Marketing Council have rolled out their new strategic plan for the next three years. The strategic focus areas for both organizations include market development, sustainability, value creation, and producer engagement.Putnam County farmer and ISA Director Mark Legan explains that supporting initiatives that increase livestock and meat exports will help move the soybean pile and create market development.“Livestock and poultry are the number one market for soybeans in the form of soybean meal. Pork exports alone add almost 10 percent to the value of a bushel of soybeans.”Dekalb County farmer and ICMC director Sarah Delbecq says while they want to expand market access for existing products, they also want to develop new value-added markets and products.Delbecq says some examples of that include, “High oleic soybeans that lots of growers have adopted and oils that are getting used in schools,  the PoreShield concrete sealer, there’s motor oil…both of those products use soybeans. Then there’s all of the things that have come out of the 26 years of the Purdue Soybean Innovation contest.“So, there’s new ideas coming constantly. It’s just a question of how you take that idea and scale it up and get it to the market.”Click the links for more on the Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Corn Marketing Council strategic plan.
