Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! I first heard the phrase ‘passive income’ a few years ago, though unknowingly I had been partaking in it for many years before that. As the name suggests, it is any way that can earn you money with little or no active effort on your part.Though the phrase traditionally refers to investments like bonds, I believe one of the best ways to earn passive income is through investing in shares.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…Dividends pleaseInvesting in stocks derives income from dividends – a share of profits made by a company and paid to its shareholders (the money earned through buying and selling the shares at different prices is capital gains, not income).Not all stocks pay dividends, and unlike a bond where the return is fixed at the time of investment (hence the title, fixed income), a dividend is actually paid in pence per share – meaning the percentage return on your investment – the dividend yield – is highly dependent on the share price.The same share, paying the same exact dividend, could yield you 6% annual returns if you invest in a bad month (for the company’s share price), and 3% in a good month for the stock (this change would actually represent a doubling of the share price between the bad and good month).Your investment can go down as well as upThe major hurdle for many when it comes to using shares as a means of passive income is the risk to the initial capital. This is a fair point, and if you want zero risk with your investment, then shares are not for you. It is, however, possible to manage and even minimise the risk associated with buying shares, through a number of precautions.The first and most obvious for any investor looking for minimal risk is stick to investing in the big blue chip companies. While there is no guarantee even with large firms, well-established, strong companies with large market capital and a good brand are generally less volatile in their price and less likely to go bust.Even with this though, one should look for investing advice when it comes to stock picking, as even a company that pays a massive dividend yield won’t give you good returns if its value halves after a year. A general rule of thumb for time frames when investing is to expect to hold a position for at least five years.Over this kind of period, short-term fluctuations based on headline news events tend to even out.The other major piece of advice I would give to minimise risk is to diversify your portfolio – that is to say, invest in shares across a number of industries. Spreading yourself thin like this is not a particularly good way to make capital gains, but if only considering income, one can easily find many companies offering you the kind of yield you are looking for.Again a good rule of thumb is to invest in at least six companies – at the very most 15 – with the ideal around the 10 figure. With some sensible decision-making and good advice, earning passive income through shares is not as scary as it may at first seem.

Enter Your Email Address See all posts by G A Chester “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” It hasn’t been a great year for dividend shares. Stacks of FTSE 100 companies have cancelled, cut or suspended their payouts. Not so British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) and Legal & General (LSE: LGEN). Both have recently announced their latest dividends.They currently trade at low earnings multiples and high yields. I see significant potential for strong share-price rises, as well as a generous income stream. As such, I’d be happy to buy both stocks for the long term in an ISA, shielded from tax on capital gains and dividends.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…Management confidenceIn its recent half-year results on 31 July, British American Tobacco said: “The business is performing well in difficult circumstances.” Management expects 1%-3% revenue growth for the full year, and a mid-single-digit increase in earnings per share (EPS).The company maintained its medium-term guidance of 3%-5% annual revenue growth and high-single-digit EPS growth. This suggests management is confident about the future. And I don’t think its confidence is misplaced.Volume headwinds continue in the traditional combustibles market, but non-combustible categories are growing strongly. Currently, 10% of group revenue comes from the latter, and the number of consumers is 11.6m. Management said it’s making “good progress” towards its target of 50m by 2030.One of the best dividend sharesBritish American Tobacco’s debt is currently at an elevated level, largely due its acquisition of Reynolds American in 2017. However, the company said its plans to deleverage the balance sheet “remain on track”. The board also said: “We are committed to our 65% dividend payout ratio.”It looks workable to me. As such, in my book, the 2,526p share price — giving a prospective yield of 8.5% and forward earnings multiple of 7.6 — is far too low.Resilient performerFinancial services group Legal & General is the UK’s largest provider of individual life insurance products and the biggest manager of corporate pension schemes.In its half-year results on 5 August, it said it delivered “resilient operating profits”. It’s looking for a similar performance in the second half of the year. The directors commented: “We remain confident in our strategy and our ability to deliver resilient, organic growth through periods of macro-volatility.”Another dividend hero whose shares look cheapL&G has a progressive dividend policy, but maintained its interim payout at the same level as last year. Management said this provides “flexibility as the economic effect of Covid-19 becomes clearer”.This seems sensible to me. Looking at the group’s dividend-paying capacity, which is underpinned by its strong balance, the decision appears to be one of caution rather than necessity.City analysts are forecasting a modest uplift in the full-year dividend. However, if we follow L&G’s caution and assume a flat dividend, the yield would still be an impressive 7.8% for buyers at the current share price of 226p.Meanwhile, the EPS forecast puts the stock on a multiple of 7.8. As with British American Tobacco, I think L&G’s share price is far too low. I can see both stocks re-rating higher and providing investors with a generous income stream in the long run.

The idea for this tiny studio of about 35 usable square meters was born out of its spectacular setting. The incredibly dense garden is home to everything from porcupines to guinea fowl and slopes down steeply to the dry ravine beyond. The clients’ insistence that no single tree may be cut required an unconventional approach. The only buildable space available was a 3 x 3m storeroom between the garage and the living room of the existing house.Save this picture!© Christine SkowskiHow to fit in an office and consultation space for the client’s consulting business, which could also function as an independent apartment, and yet respect the visual connection between the existing house and the garden? The garage could have been moved towards the street by 5 meters, opening up enough space for the studio. However, that would have meant to spend much of the budget rebuilding an existing garage, rather than on the actual studio. In addition building on the ground level would have limited the studios view into the garden.Save this picture!SketchSave this picture!SectionA double storey structure was proposed, transforming the 3 x 3m footprint of the former storeroom into a kitchenette and bathroom. The new first floor accommodates the actual studio, cantilevering over the existing veranda and thus exposing the entire north and east façades to the surrounding treetops. Fully protected from the harsh sunlight, both facades are fully glazed to maximize the feeling of a “tree house” – one of the client’s childhood fantasies. Yet for the balcony the client had wanted there was not enough space. Large sliding-folding windows now create an open corner, transforming the entire first floor into a “balcony” when needed.Save this picture!© Christine SkowskiThe entrance is via a timber deck one meter above the ground floor level. Upon entering, one can take 3 steps down into the kitchen, or continue upwards towards the studio through a double volume. The limited space of the kitchen required the staircase to the first floor to become a piece of furniture, accommodating the kitchenette with fridge and sink below. Other built-in furniture is designed to maximize usable space and create useful storage areas. All built-in furniture is made of solid, local Prosopis hardwood, beautifully finished – either charred or natural – contrasting the more “cold” finishes of the walls, windows, ceilings and floors.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanA large single concrete column is the main support for the two concrete slabs above, and connects ground and first floor visually. Other supports have been designed as steel elements, as thin as possible, and set back from the facade by one meter to emphasise the cantilevering effect. The quality of the workmanship did not allow for all exposed concrete walls to remain in their rough state as originally planned. Thus some elements were painted in varying hues of green, blending in with the tones of the garden outside and blurring the transition between inside and out. Carefully placed openings on all four sides of the building allow for maximum cross ventilation and enhance the sense of spaciousness.Save this picture!© Christine SkowskiUltimately, the most satisfying recognition is that of the client herself. After enduring the frustrations typical of a building site in and around one’s house, she now has a workplace in the treetops: stimulating not only to herself but also to her clients that come to visit now and then.Project gallerySee allShow lessWhite Arkitekter Named Finalist in Nordic Built ChallengeArchitecture NewsLiving Under the Roof / Prisca PellerinSelected Projects Share “COPY” ArchDaily A Studio – A Tree House / Phillip Lühl + Nina Maritz Architects Projects CopyHouses•Windhoek, Namibia Save this picture!© Christine Skowski+ 20 Share “COPY” A Studio – A Tree House / Phillip Lühl + Nina Maritz ArchitectsSave this projectSaveA Studio – A Tree House / Phillip Lühl + Nina Maritz Architects Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/782721/a-studio-a-tree-house-phillip-luhl-plus-nina-maritz-architects Clipboard Namibia Year: CopyAbout this officePhillip LühlOfficeFollowNina Maritz ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWindhoekNamibiaPublished on March 05, 2016Cite: “A Studio – A Tree House / Phillip Lühl + Nina Maritz Architects” 05 Mar 2016.

There are plans for two Fundraising Camps in Wales too.The event, held at the National Trust’s Belmont Tower, offers a refreshing alternative style to traditional fundraising conferences. At Fundraising Camp there are no set speakers or topics: the delegates themselves choose the topics at the beginning of the day and speak and share their fundraising questions, challenges, ideas and experience.Heritage and environmental focusThe focus of this Fundraising Camp will be on fundraising by heritage and environmental organisations. Our first topic-specific Fundraising Camp was for arts and culture fundraisers in December last year.Can other fundraisers attend?Fundraising Camps are informal events and the emphasis is on sharing expertise and advice, which is why they are open to anyone within the fundraising, charity, or social enterprise sector – but also from any other sector. So fundraisers from organisations outside the heritage and environment sectors are welcome, but should not be surprised if the conversations and sessions focus on those two areas. Advertisement IOF NI sponsors three places at Fundraising Camp Belfast How to applyIf you are interested in taking up a sponsored place simply send an email to the Institute of Fundraising Northern Ireland and include your name, job title and organisation, IoF membership number and a short line why you would like to attend.The deadline for applications for one of the three places is 4 May 2015.Please be aware if you are awarded a place and do not subsequently attend the camp you will be asked to repay the admission fee.• Bookings are open for Fundraising Camp – Heritage and Environment.• Mobile fundraising specialists instaGiv, one of the sponsors of this event, are also currently offering one free place at the event in a competition.

BBC Children in Need has announced its final fundraising total for the 2016 Appeal: a record £60 million. The 2016 total grew to £60 million following BBC Children in Need’s 2016 Appeal show, which achieved an on-the-night total of £46.6million. The 2016 Appeal show included musical performances from stars including Little Mix, Busted and Craig David as well as a Fantastic Beasts special, and a children’s edition of Would I Lie To You.BBC Children in Need currently funds around 2,400 projects and in 2016 allocated £61 million in grants to projects working with disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. Projects currently receiving funding include Touchdown Dance in Sale, Manchester, with a three-year grant of £69,500 to provide therapeutic dance and arts activities for young people with sensory, physical and emotional disabilities, and Glasgow based DASH Club with a three-year grant of £141,900 to provide weekly drama, sports and recreational sessions to disabled children and young people in the area.Simon Antrobus, Chief Executive of BBC Children in Need, said:“The impact this incredible amount of money will have on some of the most disadvantaged children and young people is hard to put into words; it really will go on to change the lives of young people across the UK who need it most.”The 2016 total is the highest amount of money raised by the charity so far. In 2015 the charity raised £56.9 million, and has raised over £909 million in total to date.https://twitter.com/BBCCiN/status/883354942752161792 Listen to the announcement of the total raised on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2 (6 July 2017) Advertisement Tagged with: BBC Children in Need fundraising events 241 total views, 3 views today Record £60 million raised by 2016 BBC Children in Need Lloyds Bank and the Big SpotacularLloyds Bank, the exclusive schools fundraising partner to BBC Children in Need in 2015/16, raised almost £6m of the 2016 total with its Big Spotacular schools fundraising campaign, which saw children and teachers dress up in spots, sell spotty cakes, and take part in spotty themed challenges to raise money. In addition over 420 Lloyds Bank and Bank of Scotland colleagues supported local schools with their fundraising activities.Lloyds is now asking schools to register for 2017’s Big Spotacular with incentives for early entries. Schools that register online before 15th September will receive a free Spotacular Fundraising Kit, and could also win a prize. Nurseries could win a Pudsey Picnic Hamper, primary schools have the chance to win a visit from Pudsey Bear himself and ten secondary schools will win the chance to broadcast the latest fundraising news direct from their classrooms with a BBC Children in Need media workshop.Tanya Rabin, BBC Children in Need Partnership Lead at Lloyds Banking Group said:“Through our role as exclusive schools partner we are thrilled to be able to make a huge difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people. The partnership continues to form an important part of the Group’s Helping Britain Prosper Plan, with education being one of the key pillars in helping to address some of the big issues facing the people, businesses and communities of Britain today.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis21 242 total views, 4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis21 Melanie May | 10 July 2017 | News WATCH: The winner of the 2016 Terry Wogan Fundraiser of the Year is announcedhttps://twitter.com/BBCCiN/status/883037851113332736 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
