UK output expands in August

first_img BRITISH manufacturing output surged in August continuing a four-month upward trend and breaking a 16-year record, official data showed yesterday, easing fears the economy is on the verge of a sharp downturn.The Office of National Statistics (ONS) said output increased 0.3 per cent in August taking the annual growth rate to six per cent, the strongest annual rate since the end of 1994. Ten out of the 13 manufacturing sectors reported growth. Industrial production, which includes mining and utilities, rose 0.3 per cent in August, taking the annual growth rate to 4.2 per cent – a rate of increase also not seen since 1994. The largest increases in output were in the machinery and equipment industries, where output rose by 16 per cent year-on-year and the food, drink and tobacco industries which saw a year-on-year increase in output of 7.7 per cent. The ONS data showed only electricity, gas and water output as declining slightly by 0.2 per cent.But economists were cautious about the significance of the figures for interpreting the strength of the economy.“These are good readings to be honest, but still it’s going to take a long time for output more generally in the UK to get back to its peak level,” said George Buckley, economist at Deutsche Bank.Peter Dixon, economist at Commerzbank added: “The figures are slightly ahead of the consensus view now because they are somewhat backward looking.”“How strong output activity will look in the future will depend on how well the global economy recovers. There’s a lot of concern it is losing momentum,” added Dixon.

Stock market crash: I’d buy and hold cheap UK dividend shares for a passive income

first_img See all posts by Peter Stephens The recent stock market crash has caused a number of UK shares to offer relatively high dividend yields. Certainly, there is a risk that they will follow the actions of other stocks and cut shareholder payouts in response to weak operating conditions. However, in many cases, FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks offer impressive income returns that appear to be relatively stable.As such, now could be the right time to buy a selection of bargain UK shares with high yields to generate a passive income. Through focusing your capital on solid businesses, you could obtain a significantly higher income return than that available from other mainstream assets.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…High dividend yields after a stock market crashThe stock market crash has caused the prices of a wide range of UK shares to decline heavily. Although in some cases they have rebounded strongly, a large number of FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks currently offer high dividend yields.Although there are risks facing investors, such as a weak economic outlook, that could cause dividend growth to decline, some companies have reported a modest financial impact from recent events. Through building a portfolio of such companies, you may be able to not only obtain a high income return, but develop a resilient passive income that has the potential to grow in the coming years.Furthermore, investors may wish to focus their capital on dividend shares that can withstand a second market crash. For example, buying UK shares with solid balance sheets, affordable dividends and defensive characteristics could lead to a more robust passive income in the coming years.Relative appealCertainly, a second stock market crash could cause paper losses for income investors. However, the yields on offer from a number of companies in the FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 suggest that this risk has been factored-in by investors.Therefore, the income returns that can be achieved from the stock market relative to other mainstream assets suggest that their risk/reward opportunity is more attractive. For example, cash savings accounts offer interest rates that are less than 1% in many cases, while investment-grade bonds also offer disappointing passive income opportunities.Managing riskThrough building a diverse portfolio of UK dividend shares after the market crash, you can reduce your overall risks. This will not insulate you from a potential downturn in the wider stock market, but it can help to improve the reliability of your passive income due to reducing your reliance on a small number of companies.Over time, those stocks could offer a growing dividend return, as well as a high initial yield, that boosts your passive income relative to other assets. As such, now could be the right time to start buying FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 shares that offer solid financial positions and impressive yields.
