Dividends are a powerful force in investing, especially during bear markets.Investing for dividends, however, is not as easy as it sounds. When economic conditions deteriorate, companies sometimes cut their dividends, leaving their investors with no income stream. With that in mind, here’s a look at three FTSE companies that have been forced to cut their payouts recently. 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…ITVOnly a few weeks ago, broadcaster ITV (LSE: ITV) said it would be paying a full-year dividend of 8p per share for 2019. And it was planning to pay another dividend of 8p per share for 2020.Yesterday, however, the company said in order to conserve cash in the wake of the coronavirus disruption, it would no longer be paying its final 2019 dividend of 5.4p per share. And it withdrew its intention to pay that 8p full-year dividend for 2020. This dividend cut is disappointing for ITV shareholders, myself included, who held the stock for its big payout.In hindsight though, there were a number of warning signs here. For starters, the company cut its dividend in the Financial Crisis. Secondly, dividend growth had dried up recently. No growth is often a precursor to a cut.Overall, the main lesson here, in my view, is that cyclical shares aren’t ideal dividend stocks. Earnings fluctuations mean they can’t always afford to pay a dividend.Marks & SpencerAnother FTSE company that has announced a dividend cut in the last week is Marks & Spencer (LSE: MKS). On Friday, it warned that it would be “severely impacted” by the coronavirus and that in the current circumstances, the board did not anticipate making a final dividend payment for this financial year. Analysts had been expecting a final dividend of 6.9p per share.This is not the first time MKS has cut its dividend recently. In May, the group cut its final 2019 payout by 40%. And then in November, it cut its interim dividend by 40% too. These cuts came after the group held its dividend flat for two years.A key takeaway here is that it pays to be careful with companies that have recently cut their dividends. If a company has cut the payout once, it may have no hesitation in doing so again.InterContinental HotelsFinally, InterContinental Hotels (LSE: IHG) has also been forced to cut its dividend. It said on Friday that, in an effort to protect the long-term health of the business, it was withdrawing the recommendation of a final dividend of 85.9¢ per share announced in mid-February. And it will defer consideration of further dividends until visibility has improved. Management added that the group is “conservatively leveraged”. But it said the dividend cut was necessary to ensure that it comes out of the coronavirus crisis as strong as it possibly can.Of the three companies I’ve mentioned, this cut was the least predictable. Yes, the hotel industry is cyclical. But IHG has an asset-light business model (meaning more flexibility) and a strong balance sheet. It also has an excellent dividend growth track record and has had a high level of dividend coverage in recent years.Ultimately, this cut really is due to the ‘black swan’ nature of the coronavirus. The lesson for dividend investors? Portfolio diversification is always crucial.

The property industry lost 2.6% of its branches during 2020, latest analysis by a leading data firm has revealed, or 339 branches in total across the UK.TwentyCI says the largest number of closed branches were among SME estate agency businesses of between two and five branches, claiming that Covid has led many – like their retail neighbours – to re-assess what branch or store footprint they need and rationalise their business, despite the recent boom in sales.Small independent agencies, which make up the rump of firms within the property industry, was the only group to see its numbers grow albeit it by only 0.3%.There are currently some 5,044 of these independents, proving the robustness of the owner-operated approach that underpins many of them.Other kinds of agencies have fared less well – SME agents saw some 156 branches close or 5.1% of their total, along with large agencies (-4.2%) and corporates (-3.6%).HHybrids hits worstBut worst hit was the online/hybrid sector. TwentyCI says seven companies (rather than branches) disappeared last year out of 89 in total, a 7.9% decline.The research also reveals that the better known the name, the higher the average instruction price of an agency.For example, online/hybrids instruct at an average of £299,195 while independents instruct at £344,416, SMEs at £349,005, large agencies at £376,140 and corporates at £467,454.This is why it is independents who are the most vocal about hybrid estate agencies – quite often they are nipping at the bottom line in many areas of their market.twencyci online estate agency hybrid estate agency February 16, 2021Nigel LewisOne commentMurray Lee, Dreamview Estates Dreamview Estates 16th February 2021 at 8:39 amSee…. those Rightmove charges are having an effect…..Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

The Red Raiders had plenty of offensive opportunities, being awarded 13 corners on the afternoon but was unable to convert on most due to some stellar saves from the Kingsway goalkeeper.With under 10 minutes to play, Kingsway found the back of the net for the third time.

Reimagining the music of Phish is no easy feat, requiring to not only understand the band’s complex music but to reinterpret it within the realms of instrumental jazz. Through careful composition, Jazz Is PHSH takes this challenge head on. Naturally, only the finest musicians have performed with the band, honing their talents in some true jazz fusion.Jazz Is PHSH is set to begin their fall tour tomorrow night, November 26th, with back to back performances at The Cutting Room in New York, NY (more info here). With members of Dave Matthews Band, Rubblebucket, Snarky Puppy and more, these intimate shows are sure to capture the music of Phish in new and exciting ways. In preparation for the upcoming show, we sat down with saxophonist Chris Bullock to talk about what makes his time in Jazz is PHSH so special.L4LM: What attracted you to being a part of Jazz Is PHSH?CB: The prospect of the various musicians involved.L4LM: Were you a Phish fan before this project?CB: I didn’t really listen to their music very much. I had friends when I was younger that were way into them so heard the music indirectly. I did own their album “Hoist” on cassette tape in high school. That album was the extent of my direct listening to their music.L4LM: Has being a part of Jazz Is PHSH changed how you feel about Phish’s music?CB: I wouldn’t say it has changed any feelings I hold. It has allowed me to check out a lot more of it that I have never heard and find some new ways to reinterpret it.L4LM: What should potential fans know about how the music has been rearranged?CB: A good portion of the tunes have been put through our own individual musical filters. We have altered them to fit the instrumentation and styles of the musicians within the band.L4LM: What is your favorite Jazz Is PHSH arrangement? What makes it so good?CB: I enjoy playing the tune “Carini.” We’ve arranged the tune in a way to highlight closely-voiced horns with a driving groove throughout.L4LM: We read that you are featured on woodwinds on the new Phish album, “Big Boat”. What was it like working with Phish?CB: I performed clarinet, bass clarinet, flute, and alto flute on the last track on the album, “Petrichor.” It was a lot of fun and cool opportunity for me. I spent a day in the studio with Trey Anastasio checking out the woodwinds parts he had written and got to collaborate and add to his arrangement. The following day I returned and spent the day with him and the legendary engineer, Elliot Scheiner, to track all of the woodwinds.L4LM: What was the first Phish song you ever heard? Did you like it?CB: Hmm, I honestly can’t remember. It was probably a tune off of “Hoist.”L4LM: What else is on the horizon for Chris Bullock?CB: I’ve got a bit of a break from touring with Snarky Puppy at the moment. I’m focusing most of my free time to writing and have begun recording my first solo record that I plan to release in 2017. The music is a blend of woodwind chamber music paired with electronic beats and synths. I’m augmenting the electronic environment with analog instruments and live musicians as well.I’m also enjoying immersing myself into the NYC music scene after spending a majority of the past two years on tour and away from this vibrant city.L4LM: In case any fans want to buy you a drink at an upcoming show, what is your favorite cocktail?CB: I always enjoy a mezcal negroni.You can be sure to grab a drink for Chris Bullock tomorrow night, November 26th, when he performs with Jazz Is PHSH for back-to-back shows at The Cutting Room in New York.
