Rupert Hargreaves | Friday, 10th January, 2020 | More on: EVR The best Cash ISA on the market at the moment offers an interest rate of just 1.36%. This tiny payout does not even match inflation, which means that your money will lose purchasing power if you decide to take up this offer.Luckily, you can find numerous FTSE 100 companies that offer dividend yields significantly above this figure. The index provides an average dividend yield of 4.3%, but some of its constituents support yields of up to 10%.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…Here is one company that is currently experiencing challenging trading conditions, but offers investors a dividend yield of 9%.Tough timesRecent trading updates from steel producer Evraz (LSE: EVR) show a mixed picture.While the company reported increased steel output on a year-on-year basis in the third quarter of 2019, total consolidated steel output declined by 3.4% on a quarter-by-quarter basis. External sales of iron ore products and coking coal also fell on that basis.Further, the company is facing higher input costs. The average cost of producing steel increased by around 1.3% between the second and third quarters of 2019, while the average price of producing iron ore products increased by nearly 10% year-on-year.Unfortunately, Evraz has not been able to increase prices to offset these higher costs. The average selling price for steel products declined from $507 per tonne in the second quarter of 2019, to $480 per tonne in the third quarter. The average selling price was down around 11% year-on-year.Falling earningsLooking at these numbers, it is no surprise that City analysts are expecting the steel producer to report a 54% decline in earnings for its 2019 financial year. However, despite this decline, the company’s dividend yield appears safe.Forecasts hint that Evraz will distribute $0.64 per share in dividends this year, that’s around 49p. This implies a dividend yield of 12.5% for 2019 with dividend cover of 1.2. Next year, analysts are forecasting a per share distribution of 35p, giving a dividend yield of 9.1% on the current share price with a dividend cover of 1.5.Evraz’s bleak earnings outlook has sent investors running for the hills, but with the stock currently trading on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 6.6, now could be the right time to buy a slice of it.The current valuation suggests that it offers a wide margin of safety, and the market-beating dividend yield of 9.1% is well covered by earnings, signifying that it is here to stay.What’s more, if steel prices improve over the next 12 to 24 months, it is highly plausible that management will increase the distribution. For example, in its 2018 financial year, Evraz paid out a total dividend of 90p per share, which indicates a dividend yield of 23% on a current share price.While Evraz might not look attractive at first, considering its falling earnings, the company’s low valuation and history of returning cash to investors imply that this stock could produce attractive returns for investors in the long run.

Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown May 5, 2021 Find out more Listed as a “foreign agent”, Russia’s most popular independent website risks disappearing RussiaEurope – Central Asia Imprisoned News Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is concerned about Roman Sushchenko, the Ukrainian national news agency Ukrinform’s Paris correspondent, who is being held on a spying charge in Moscow.Sushchenko went missing on arriving in Moscow on 30 September and it was only by chance that ONK Moscow, an association of prison visitors, discovered him in an isolation cell during a routine visit of Moscow’s Lefortovo prison on 2 October.It was not until 3 october that the Russian authorities confirmed that they are holding him. The Ukrainian consulate had not been told until then, and Sushchenko had not been allowed to contact his family to tell them he had been arrested.Sushchenko is facing a possible sentence of 10 to 20 years in prison on a charge of spying under article 276 of the Russian criminal code. He is currently held under a two-month detention order effective from 1 October, the day after his arrest.He was initially given a court-appointed lawyer but his family have hired Mark Feygin, the lawyer who defended Nadiya Savchenko, a Ukrainian pilot who was held by the Russians for two years. Feygin has not yet been able to visit Sushchenko or see the prosecution file.“The way the Russian authorities have handled this case raises serious doubts about the grave charges brought against Roman Sushchenko,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “In violation of his rights, this journalist was placed in detention without being able to contact his consulate and has still not been able to meet his lawyer. If the authorities cannot produce credible evidence to support the charges, they must release him without delay.”Sushchenko has worked for Ukrinform since 2002 and has been its Paris correspondent since 2010, mainly covering international stories. According to Ukrinform, he went to Moscow to visit relatives but the Russian authorities say he went there with the sole aim of gathering classified information concerning national security.According to the Russian authorities, he works for the Ukrainian defence ministry with the rank of colonel – a claim that is categorically denied by Kiev. Prior to 2001, he was part of the peacekeeping force in Kosovo.Russia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

From left, Waves of Caring board members Dana Linthicum, Jim Smith, Debbie Buckley, Patricia Smith and Frank Donato stand behind some of the donated toys in 2017. By Maddy VitaleThe reward of belonging to a charity such as Waves of Caring is simple if you ask its members.This Christmas, like the 24 before, the organization will bring smiles to the faces of about 150 needy children in Ocean City.Waves of Caring is a city-sanctioned charity that collects and distributes toys and other gifts around the Christmas holiday for children of underprivileged Ocean City families.On Tuesday, Ocean City Fire Chief Jim Smith, who has been with Waves of Caring for all 25 years, flipped through some of the 60 applications filled out by parents or guardians of children in need. On the applications, next to the names, ages and gender of the children, are what types of toys they may want.“We give to kids from newborn up to high school,” Smith said. “Our goal is to help families in town. We are an affluent town, but there are families here who are struggling.”Fire Chief Jim Smith looks over applications for the Waves of Caring Toy Drive.In the past, children have received bikes, games, all sorts of toys and clothes. The older children get gift cards, so they may choose what they would like most for the holiday.That is where Waves of Caring comes in. In addition to the toy drive, it works with different organizations in town to extend a helping hand of donated food, clothing, holiday gifts and a one-time monetary gift through the Ocean City Ecumenical Council, a coalition of churches.Gifts for about 150 children will be handed out by Smith, other members of Waves of Caring and people from the Ecumenical Council from 10 a.m. to noon on Dec. 18 at the Kull Center, 550 Wesley Ave.Smith said last-minute applications can be handed in to the city’s Neighborhood and Social Services Office, 821 Central Ave., by Dec. 7.Waves of Caring board member Dana Linthicum said the toy drive is such an important event.“Often we forget that there are families in need right here in Ocean City, that there are children going to school with our own kids who won’t get a visit from Santa Claus,” Linthicum noted. “The Waves of Caring volunteers spend hours sifting through generously donated toys to create a personalized package for each family. We want to make sure that every child in our community experiences the magic of Christmas.”A bike was among the hundreds of donated toys and other gifts in 2017.There are many drop-off points in the community for anyone wishing to donate unwrapped toys to the drive.However, this year will be the first in the last decade in which there won’t be a toy drive dinner, which was traditionally held at the Port-O-Call Hotel in Ocean City.Smith said Port-O-Call was gracious in allowing Waves of Caring to hold the annual dinner and fundraiser there.“I was amazed and grateful we got to hold the dinner there for 10 years,” Smith said.Last year, Port-O-Call announced that it would no longer partner for the dinner event.Smith said it was beneficial to both the charity and the hotel. The dinner brought people to the hotel’s Adelene Restaurant for the special evening, and Waves of Caring received money and donations.Smith said without the hotel’s involvement this year, the drop-off locations throughout Ocean City are key to obtaining toys for the needy.“Port-O-Call gave us a chance to collect more toys, as well as financial donations and an opportunity to update the community on what Waves of Caring is all about and what we support,” Smith said.In addition to the toy drive, Waves of Caring, partners with other organizations. The group works with the Ocean City Tabernacle. It provides transportation for the Intermediate School students to attend an afterschool program called the Sun Club.The charity organization also assists with “Holiday Helpings” to provide groceries for people in need to make Christmas dinner. On Dec. 20, an estimated 40 families with 80 children will benefit from the food drive at St. Peter’s United Methodist Church, said Susie Stauffer, the “Holiday Helpings” director.Without the dinner at the Port-O-Call, Smith said, it is even more important for the public to know drop-off locations for toys.“We really relied on the dinner and we are now looking to other avenues for support,” Smith noted. “We will look to see if we can come up with a partner to rekindle our annual holiday party.”People may drop off unwrapped toys for the Waves of Caring Toy Drive in a box that is also for Toys for Tots. This one is located outside the Ocean City Aquatic Center.Donation Drop-Off Sites for Waves of Caring and Toys for Tots in Ocean City are as follows:Ocean City Fire Department Headquarters550 Asbury Ave.Ocean City Discounts1309 West Ave.Reich Asset Management110 Roosevelt Bvd.Ocean City Free Public Library1735 Simpson Ave.Inside entrance doorAquatic Center1735 Simpson Ave.At the check-in deskBank of America – Ocean City 34th St. and Simpson Ave., Ocean CitySturdy Savings Bank101 East 34th Street, Ocean CityFlanders Hotel719 East 11th St., Ocean CityPort-O-Call Hotel 1510 Boardwalk Ocean CityOcean City Home Bank10th and AsburyGleeson’s Audio-Video1048 Asbury Ave.OC Board of Realtors405 22nd StHoys 5 & 10732 Asbury AveHoys 5 & 1034th and WestAmerican Legion Post 52446th and West Ave.
