I’d never turn down a dividend from a company I own. After all, this cash can then be reinvested in the market, allowing me to benefit even more from compound interest. With this in mind, here are what I consider to be two of the best dividend stocks from the FTSE 250.

Record trading

Online trading provider IG Group (LSE: IGG) has been throwing dividends at my own portfolio for years now. Today’s record full-year results suggest this income stream will continue (and then some). 

As one might expect, the hugely volatile markets over the last year have attracted more people to trade via IG’s platform. The number of new and active clients jumped 39% and 31% respectively. As a result, net trading revenue rose 31% to £853.4m over the 12 months to the end of March. Pre-tax profit also rocketed 52% to a little over £450m.

YouTube has just launched the beta of a feature called “Super Thanks.” It’s a new way for content creators to monetize their following by allowing viewers to “tip” them for content.

The Haps

YouTube wants to encourage creators to stop sending their fans to alternative services like Patreon by offering a similar service called Super Thanks.

Super Thanks enables fans to support their favorite channels, while giving creators access to a new source of revenue.

For creators, building a business isn’t a one-size-fit-all approach. Some may gravitate towards tools like channel memberships while others may double down on Super Chat. At YouTube, we’re always looking for fresh ways creators can diversify their revenue streams. That’s why I’m excited to unveil our fourth Paid Digital Good — Super Thanks. This new feature gives creators yet another way to earn money while also allowing them to strengthen relationships with viewers.

I am writing this blog the day after England beat Germany in the Euros. The stuff of dreams which will live on forever, according to Rio Ferdinand. As a Scotland fan living in England, married to an English woman, it leaves me is a strange situation. I can see how much excitement it generates, how the anticipation of the next game, the next round, maybe even a final and a win creates a buzz. From a head point of view, I can absolutely understand but my heart just isn’t in it. Sadly, I am an outsider.

This is a flippant example and there are numerous, more serious, examples of this in society, where being an outsider can be based on race, sexuality, gender or for many other reasons.

It is also true in marketing where brands, in general, want to classify their customers based on broad brush profiles and then … Read more

The KFC buckets celebrate ancestral art for the July anniversary of the annexation of the province of Guanacaste to Costa Rica nearly 200 years ago

Havas Costa Rica and fast-food company, KFC have created a special edition of its buckets that hopes to preserve an ancient art form and help the struggling community that has kept it alive. The agency has created a special collection of KFC buckets that celebrate ancestral art for the July anniversary of the annexation of the province of Guanacaste to Costa Rica nearly 200 years ago.

With that territory came a tradition that was 5000 years old, an art form from the pre-Columbian era that is still alive today thanks to artisans from the Guaitil community, in Guanacaste. Tourism is their only income and due to the pandemic, their cultural legacy is endangered.

“In Costa Rica tourism represents the income for many communities, that … Read more
