I’d buy this 9% yield cheap FTSE 100 share to get rich Bitcoin is hot news right now but cryptocurrency isn’t for everyone. I’d say that for most UK investors, picking up cheap FTSE 100 shares is a much better way to get rich.Bitcoin remains a non-yield asset, like gold, for the most part. Holding it doesn’t create any compound growth. So instead I’ve picked out these super cheap FTSE 100 shares that offer a 9.2% dividend. 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…If I wanted compound wealth — and trust me I do — then I’d be looking to utilise high-yield dividend income spread over many years. I think that’s on offer here. Imperial powerThe Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB) share price has climbed 17% in the past month. That’s a tidy rise. But only because it hit a 16-year low on 6 November this year. My impression is that a turnaround for these cheap FTSE 100 shares is on the cards. Company accounts to 30 September 2020 showed Imperial Brands had actually improved revenues compared to 2019, up from £31.5bn to £32.5bn. Profits lifted too, from £1.69bn to £2.15bn. The company has also forecast more profit growth in 2021, driven by rising annual tobacco sales. In May, Imperial Brands cut its dividend for the first time in 24 years. Bosses slashed the interim payout by 33% to 41.7p a share to help cut its £14bn of debt. That now seems like a sensible move, given the pandemic. And IMB has retained its progressive dividend policy from this level. That means it will seek to pay an ever higher proportion of profits to shareholders each year. Directing the playI also like to see directors buying stock in their own companies. On 18 November, non-exec director Bob Kunze-Concewitz hoovered up 15,000 IMB shares for £227,623. That’s some expression of confidence and an indication he too believes these are cheap FTSE 100 shares. This kind of action is considered what they call ‘material’, so directors have to declare it to the market. With the torrid share price drops of 2020 seeming to be over for now, these may not be cheap FTSE 100 shares for very much longer, I’d wager.Cheap FTSE 100 shares winAt a P/E ratio of just 5.2, I believe there’s some pretty stunning long-term value on offer here. And there’s a particular reason I keep banging on about buying cheap FTSE 100 shares at attractive valuations. I believe this value investing principle can make me the best profits of my life. Not only can I reinvest the whopping 9.2% dividend yield to see long-term compound growth. I know the dividends will get progressively larger over time. I also make portfolio gains from cheap FTSE 100 shares when prices start to rise. Investing wizard John Neff made fortunes for Vanguard investors by sticking to this principle. His comments have stuck with me since I first read them: “Buy stocks that look bad to less careful investors and hang on until their real value is recognised.” Image source: Getty Images.

February 11, 2021 Find out more News BulgariaEurope – Central Asia Media independence Freedom of expression Reporters Without Borders (RSF) regards the removal of 90 political cartoons by the well-known Bulgarian cartoonist Chavdar Nikolov from the Nova TV website as an unacceptable act of censorship. Owned by Swedish media group MTG and run by a Frenchman, Didier Stoessel, Sofia-based Nova TV removed all the cartoons and an interview with Nikolov from its website on 14 April. Nova TV said they were removed because its contract with Nikolov had ended but it seems to be a case of political censorship, coming as it did just days after the latest cartoon mocked Prime Minister Boyko Borisov for publicly supporting a group of criminals who hunt down migrants in order to send them back to Turkey.“A media outlet’s management has a duty to maintain the editorial independence of the journalists who work for it,” RSF said. “Didier Stoessel’s claim that the cartoonist’s contract had simply ended is grotesque. The media must participate in the democratic debate, which includes this kind of cartoon. Media freedom is not a trite formula. It is incredible that media outlets must be reminded of their duty to respect it. All of Nikolov’s cartoons must be restored to the website.”Nova TV’s censorship has sparked an outcry in Bulgaria and was immediately denounced on social networks. A demonstration was held yesterday in Sofia.

The young footballers, aged from 10 to 14, visited Limerick and other parts of the country to play a series of matches against local underage clubs.The ‘Gaza Kids to Ireland’ project is a joint initiative of a number of groups including Gaza Action Ireland. It follows on from a visit to the Al Helal Club in 2013 by Gaza Action Ireland (GAI) members from Limerick and Nenagh and was launched by former manager of the Republic of Ireland, Brian Kerr, and ex Irish rugby international Trevor Hogan in 2014.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up According to Limerick-based organiser of the project Zoe Lawlor, it aims to give the kids some relief from the stress of living under blockade and military assault.“We couldn’t be more delighted to have these lovely children finally here to see us,” Gaza Action Ireland (GAI) coordinator Zoë Lawlor said.‘The situation for Palestinians in Gaza trying to play sports, living as they do under siege, is extremely difficult. The children are hampered by lack of facilities, equipment, places to play and restrictions on their movement.

According to the FHFA, these mortgages build equity faster than the traditional 30-year loans.Regionally, the report found 10 states that accounted for more than 70 percent of borrowers who remained eligible for HARP and had financial incentive to refinance their loans. They included Illinois, New Jersey, Ohio, Florida, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Alabama, Georgia, and New York.The report also indicated that borrowers who refinanced through this program had a lower delinquency rate compared with borrowers eligible for HARP who did not refinance through the program.Click here to get all the details of the FHFA’s quarterly Refinance Report.

Kuzma/iStock(NEW YORK) — A new lawsuit filed Wednesday by the attorney general of the Virgin Islands claims that Jeffrey Epstein trafficked girls to his estate on his private island as recently as 2018, as first reported by The New York Times.The lawsuit against the wealthy investor’s estate accuses him of sexually abusing young women and girls in the Caribbean, including some as young as 12 years old.Epstein died by suicide in a New York City jail last year. He was discovered unresponsive in his cell and with injuries to his neck in the early morning hours of July 23.Young women were “deceptively lured” and recruited to the Virgin Islands “with money and promises of employment, career opportunities and school assistance,” by Epstein and his associates, according to the lawsuit, which was filed by Attorney General Denise George in Superior Court of the Virgin Islands.“Epstein, through and in association with defendants, trafficked, raped, sexually assaulted and held captive underage girls and young women at his properties in the Virgin Islands,” the suit said. “Epstein created a network of companies and individuals who participated in and conspired with him in a pattern of criminal activity related to the sex trafficking, forced labor, sexual assault, child abuse and sexual servitude of these young women.”The lawsuit seeks forfeiture of Epstein’s USVI assets. However, the lawsuit insisted the goal was not to supplant the claims of numerous women who have also sued Epstein’s estate.“These claims are distinct from, and are not intended to supplant, the claims of victims who were unconscionably harmed by Jeffrey Epstein and his associates,” the lawsuit said.The lawsuit also took aim at the estate’s victim compensation fund, casting it as a move to avoid a public reckoning of Epstein’s alleged conduct.“Each of the participants continued to conspire to prevent detection of the breadth and scope of the Epstein Enterprise’s criminal wrongdoing and to prevent accountability,” the suit said.Subscribe to ABC News’ “Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein” podcast, which is available for free on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Pandora, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn and the ABC News app with new episodes posting Thursdays.
