Enter Your Email Address As well as providing a generous passive income, dividend shares could well deliver impressive capital growth in a stock market recovery.Their high yields could become increasingly appealing to income investors with limited options among other mainstream assets. Furthermore, the low valuations of many income shares could mean they offer good value for money and significant scope for gains over the long run.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…A large proportion of the stock market’s past total returns having been generated from the reinvestment of dividends. This means buying income shares could be a sound means of outperforming the index.The increasing popularity of dividend sharesWhile dividend shares have always been a means of obtaining a passive income, they could now prove to be the best option by some distance for many investors. That’s not only because many dividend stocks have high yields, but also because income returns available elsewhere are relatively low.Loose monetary policies have been pursued over the past 10+ years and interest rates have fallen across major economies following the 2020 market crash. This mean the returns on cash and bonds are extremely disappointing.For many people, they’re too low to even consider when it comes to obtaining an income from their capital. As such, they may be pushed towards dividend stocks in order to generate a worthwhile passive income.This situation may mean that demand for dividend shares increases over the coming years. Certainly, interest rates will rise at some point. However, that could be many months, or even many years, away. The result of this could be rising demand for income shares that pushes their prices higher.Total return potentialAs mentioned, many income shares appear to offer good value for money at the present time. Since the 2020 market crash, many investors have focused on growth stocks, rather than dividend shares. This could mean there is scope for large capital gains from a portfolio of income shares that enables them to outperform the wider stock market.The historic returns of indexes such as the FTSE 100 shows that a large proportion of total returns have been derived from the reinvestment of dividends. As such, investors who don’t need, or desire, an income in the short run could buy income stocks and reinvest the shareholder returns received. This may enable them to earn a relatively high return in the coming years.Clearly, it’s important to diversify across a wide range of dividend shares. Many of them are solid businesses with sound financial positions. But the uncertain outlook for the economy may hold back their performances in the short run. However, buying a range of them could produce higher returns, as well as lower risks, to benefit from a long-term stock market rally. See all posts by Peter Stephenslast_img read more

Philippine website accused of libel in seven-year-old article

first_img Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Philippines The National Bureau of Investigation dismissed the complaint in February 2018 because the law was not retroactive and because of a one-year prescription on filing complaints, but reversed its decision the following month. The justice department is reviving the case on the grounds that a principle of “continuous publication” can be applied to websites. Mass international solidarity campaign launched in support of Maria Ressa The Philippines is ranked 133rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. The charges, which carry a possible 12-year jail sentence, are based on the complaint that Keng brought five years later, in October 2017, under a cyber-crime law that was enacted several months after the article’s publication. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the latest absurd charges that the Philippine justice department is planning to bring against the news website Rappler – this time libel charges in connection with an article posted in 2012 – and calls for the case to be dismissed. Grotesque persecution The authorities have been systematically targeting Rappler for more than a year with the aim of intimidating its journalists. Four charges of tax evasion and failing to file income tax returns were brought against Rappler and Ressa in November. A fifth, completely spurious, charge was brought in December. In January 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that it was revoking Rappler’s licence on the grounds that it had violated a ban on foreign ownership of media outlets, spuriously claiming that, by issuing Philippine Depositary Receipts to raise funds, it had sold some of its stock to foreign investors.

We urge the court that handles this case to show independence and wisdom by dismissing it once and for all.” Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped The justice department announced today that Rappler, its editor and CEO, Maria Ressa, and one of its former reporters, Reynaldo Santos Jr., are to be charged over a 2012 article about alleged ties between businessmen Wilfredo Keng and the then president of the country’s supreme court.

EU and embassies urged to press for release of jailed human rights journalist

first_img UzbekistanEurope – Central Asia Uzbek blogger facing possible 10-year jail term News August 29, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 EU and embassies urged to press for release of jailed human rights journalist News Help by sharing this information More than six years in prison for Uzbek blogger who covered corruption Reporters Without Borders called today on the European Union (EU) and Western embassies to push for the release of jailed Uzbek journalist and human rights activist Ruslan Sharipov, who says he pleaded guilty to sex charges at his recent trial after being physically and psychologically ill-treated.It also called on the German, French, US, Swiss and EU embassies in the Uzbek capital, Tashkent, to ensure international standards of justice were observed in the case and to guarantee the safety of Sharipov’s family and his lawyer, human rights activist Surat Ikramov, who was beaten up by thugs in Tashkent on 28 August.Sharipov, former head of the Union of Independent Journalists of Uzbekistan (UIJU) and correspondent for the Russian news agency Prima, has been frequently harassed by the authorities in recent years to drop his human rights work and criticism of the government.Reporters Without Borders considers that this and disclosure of his forced confession indicates that his jailing on 13 August for five and a half years for alleged homosexuality and relations with minors was the result of a trumped-up prosecution simply to silence one of the country’s most strident dissidents. The attack on his lawyer, who had just been discussing his case with the judge in charge, and the fact that it took place the day before a planned demonstration in support of Sharipov showed a serious attempt to prevent Sharipov being defended, it said.Sharipov revealed that the confession was forced to a visitor who saw him on 27 August. He also asked his lawyer to lodge an appeal on his behalf. He said he had “confessed” on 8 August, asked President Islam Karimov to forgive him for everything he had written, refused to allow his mother (the only defence figure allowed) to attend his trial and dismissed Ikramov as his lawyer. The Mirzo Ulug-Beg district court in Tashkent then sentenced him under articles 120, 127-3 and 128-2 of the criminal code. Sharipov, who has never denied he is bisexual, told Vasilya Inoyatova, president of the Uzbekistan human rights group E’zguilik, who saw him on 27 May, that he did not know the alleged victims, who had been arrested on 26 May and held for several days. Sharipov’s lawyer said the youths were beaten and threatened by police to get them to give evidence in court. The case was postponed several times because of their absence in court.Ikramov was attacked on 28 August by four masked men in military uniforms who dragged him out of his car, put a bag over his head, tied him up, took him to a city park and beat him with sticks for an hour. He has was taken to a clinic with two broken ribs and badly bruised. He had been to see the judge in the case, Ganisher Makhmudov, to ask permission to visit Sharipov. The judge had advised him to drop the case “in his own interests.” Ikramov told journalists he had expected the attack and had recently had telephoned death threats. A demonstration on 29 August in support of Sharipov, to be attended by Ikramov and coinciding with the new session of parliament, was cancelled. On 22 August, Ikramov had attended a press conference and a demonstration in front of the interior ministry.

Cephalopods of the South Georgia slope

first_imgDuring January 2003 the bathymetric distribution of the cephalopod fauna of the South Georgia and Shag Rocks slope (100-900 m) was investigated using a commercial bottom trawl. Forty-four trawl stations caught 193 cephalopod specimens including six species of octopod and seven of squid. The benthic octopods Pareledone turqueti and Adelieledone polymorpha were abundant in shallow water at South Georgia, being replaced by Thaumeledone gunteri in greater depths. However, neither A. polymorpha nor T gunteri were caught on the adjacent Shag Rocks area. Two specimens of the deep-sea genus Graneledone were caught on the South Georgia slope. The most abundant squid species caught were Moroteuthis knipovitchi, Psychroteuthis glacialis and Slosarczykovia circumantarctica, which are primarily pelagic and may have been taken when their vertical migrations impinged on the slope.last_img read more
