Got $5,000? These 2 Dividend Stocks Are Cheap Buys Today

After a rough September, during which the S&P 500 fell 4%, October seems like a great time for investors to scoop up some deals. And whether you’re looking to boost your returns or just love to watch money flow into your portfolio every quarter, dividend stocks can be attractive investments. 

Shares of Gilead Sciences (NASDAQ:GILD) and Kraft Heinz (NASDAQ:KHC) were both down more than 5% last month, making their dividend yields more attractive in the process. The stocks couldn’t be more different — Gilead is a biotech company with high hopes for its COVID-19 treatment and Kraft controls dozens of grocery store staple brands. Here’s a look at why both of these discount buys are worth adding to your portfolio this month.

  • Today Adam is a respected businessman who has developed companies such as Hanover Insolvency and Pride Planning.

‘Revenge is sweet’. Adam Deering , 39, bought the bank building that denied him credit to start as an entrepreneur, the financial institution alleged at that time that the entrepreneur “was very young and inexperienced.”

“So last week I bought the bank building where I was turned down for a loan at age 21!” The British businessman wrote on his Instagram account.

Nearly two decades ago Adam, a resident of the city of Urmston (England, UK), created a business plan and made an appointment with the bank manager to discuss how to open an account and obtain a business loan.

“Before entering the bank I prayed because I had no cash and had no idea how I would fulfill my dream without it,” explains Adam. However, after a

Align Capital buys Excergy as latest add-on for its E Source utility consulting platform

Align Capital Partners has acquired Excergy, a Denver-based provider of utility consulting and technology implementation services, as the latest add-on for its E Source platform.

Terms of the deal, the fifth tuck-in deal for E Source since its acquisition in June 2019, were not disclosed.

According to Align, Excergy “partners with water, electric and gas utilities, and municipalities, specifically helping its customers assess, design and deploy operational technologies, such as advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) solutions, through multiyear engagements.”

The ability to add new services makes it a prime fit for E Source, a provider of independent research, advisory and information services to utilities, major energy users and other players in the retail energy marketplace.

“E Source looks forward to welcoming Excergy into our recently formed Technology Planning and Implementation Consulting Division. The company’s team of industry veterans have been offering energy and water solutions for over 20 years,” said E

Howden buys fellow British insurance broker A-Plan

LONDON (Reuters) – Howden Broking Group said on Wednesday it had bought fellow British insurance broker A-Plan Group at a valuation which David Howden, the chief executive of Howden’s parent company, described as being in the “high 600 million pounds”.

Broker Howden focuses on specialty commercial risk and reinsurance, while A-Plan, which sells insurance through brands including Endsleigh, focuses on personal and commercial lines such as motor, home and business liability.

The combined business will have more than 4 billion pounds ($5.1 billion) in gross written premium, the firms said in a statement.

Insurance brokers small and large have been consolidating in recent years. Aon AON.N is in the process of buying Willis Towers Watson WLTW.O for $30 billion to form the world’s largest insurance broker.

Howden, CEO of Howden parent Hyperion Insurance Group, told Reuters that given “what our clients require in terms of servicing, data technology… there’s no

Cheap UK shares: These are my FTSE 100 best buys

If you’re looking for cheap UK shares to buy today, the FTSE 100 is full of bargains. Today, I’m going to take a look at two such stocks I think could be great additions to any diversified portfolio of blue-chips. 

Cheap UK shares

In my opinion, one of the most undervalued stocks in the FTSE 100 right now is ITV (LSE: ITV). Investor sentiment towards the largest free-to-air broadcaster in the UK plunged at the beginning of lockdown as its advertising revenue vanished. The group’s production business also reported a slump in activity. 

However, in recent weeks and months, production activity has resumed. Advertising revenue has also started to return. But despite this improving fundamental performance, shares in the company continue to trade at lockdown levels. This suggests the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels. 

The group may suffer a significant decline in income this year,
