The messaging is messy, but there may yet be a final dividend.
However, the company is set to review its dividend policy, and I expect a cut within a year.
The yield is the reason to hold this share, in anticipation of a cut I remove my buy recommendation.
U.K.-based Aviva (OTCPK: AVVIY, OTCPK: AIVAF) recently announced its half year results, and some analysts focused on its decision to reinstate its dividend. In fact, the dividend reinstatement was not as... more

Seeking AlphaDividend Quick Picks | Tech Apple Split Raises Dividend QuestionAug. 13, 2020 9:47 AM ET|| About: Apple Inc. (AAPL)by: Bill MaurerBill Maurer Long/short equity, long only, short only, GrowthSummaryPost-split dividend would equal 20.5 cents.
Rounding up to 21 cents would be most logical.
Investors hoping for major raise will likely be disappointed.
A couple of weeks ago, technology giant Apple (AAPL) surprised the Street when it announced a four for one stock split along with its earnings results. Some may say the split was done to make shares more accessible to individual investors, while it is also possible it was done to reduce the stock's weight in the Dow index. Regardless of the reason, one important question has been raised regarding the split, and that is how... more

Seeking AlphaDividend Ideas | Financials  | United KingdomSchroders: Secure 5.4% Dividend, Potential Mid-Teens Annualised UpsideAug. 13, 2020 8:00 AM ET|| About: Schroders plc (SHNWF), Includes: HRGLF, HRGLYby: Librarian CapitalLibrarian Capital Hedge fund analyst, long/short equitySummaryWe review Schroders after shares have returned 16.9% since our initial Buy rating in March 2019 and following H1 results last week.
With disruption from COVID-19, Schroders' ability to resume positive asset flows remains unproven, but revenue margin trends are stable.
Management disappointed in H1 by raising compensation cost margin 100 bps to 45%; we now believe EPS could fall by 10% or more in 2020.
At 2,100p, we have a mid-teens annualised return in an Upside Case; the Base Case carries... more

The Dividend Aristocrat has been coping with the crisis and charting the course towards recuperation.
The company had likely reached a sales nadir.
Ample liquidity instills confidence that the DPS will perhaps be increased in 2020. The prospects of the DPS cut are almost zero.
The previous time I covered Leggett & Platt (LEG), a high-yield Dividend Aristocrat, was a few weeks ago, when I concluded that its thorough cost-cutting efforts would likely protect FCF and... more

(LUV)by: Rocco PendolaRocco Pendola Portfolio strategy, retirement, dividends, growth at reasonable priceSummaryIf you have a mid- to long-term time horizon, buying airline stocks might make sense.
Southwest Airlines should be able to weather the storm better than most, if not all, other domestic airlines.
But there's a problem. The company recently had to suspend its dividend, and as a rule, I don't buy stocks that don't pay dividends.
Should I make an exception for Southwest Airlines in the time of COVID-19?
While I don't fret much over missing out on the massive upside in FAANG stocks or watching AT&T's... more
