Speculation about a dividend cut from FTSE 100 telecoms provider BT (LSE: BT-A) was doing the rounds even before the stock market crashed. But almost a month into the crash’s official start, BT seems nowhere near announcing a dividend cut. And this is at a time when many other companies have either cut dividends or suspended them completely. Even before the FTSE 100 biggies went on a dividend cut drive, BT’s was attractive from a dividend yield standpoint. After the cuts, its allure has only increased. It’s now among the handful of FTSE 100 companies that offer double-digit dividend yields. But the question remains: will it maintain its dividends going forward as well? 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…BT’s confident in tough timesTo assess what it’s going to do next, let’s first consider its latest release from a few days ago. CEO, Philip Jansen, said: “Despite unprecedented demand for connectivity, our fixed broadband network and our mobile network are delivering for our customers when they need us most”. Demand increase is a positive for BT’s business. The release also said that no one will lose their jobs for at least the next three months. In fact, it has offered a 1.5% annual pay increase to its non-managerial staff. This, in conjunction with its statement on demand, says to me that BT’s doing all right, at least for now. If it was in dire straits, I doubt it would have been as confident in both its speech and actions. That said, its existing issues remain. Its financial performance can be better and it’s also a debt ridden company. BT has already said in the past that it could cut dividends to undertake more capital spending. It hasn’t happened so far. But now of all times, it may well take place. Long-term dividend historyAs an investor in BT, I’d take heart from the fact that it has a long history of dividend payouts. If its business continues to be robust, I see little reason that would change. Even in 2009, when the last global recession happened, BT cut dividends but continued them nevertheless. That in itself is a positive at a time when some FTSE 100 companies are suspending dividends altogether. Further, even with a dividend cut, BT may still continue to be a good investment to the extent that its yield stays above the FTSE 100 average. The FTSE 100 average yield is 5%. BT’s dividend yield is a whole 7.6 percentage points higher than this. Can its dividends drop so much that its yield falls below that of the FTSE 100? Going by how sharply it cut its dividend in the last recession, it’s possible. The upshotBut that’s only as long as its share price remains static at current levels. BT’s price has been tumbling since 2017 anyway and it continues to do so. I reckon that if it cuts dividends, its share price will fall further, making its dividend yield competitive again. Any way I look at it for now, the income investor could come out ahead by investing in the stock. Enter Your Email Address Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law Organisation April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News News Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit Reporters Without Borders hails journalist Ertugrul Mavioglu’s acquittal by an Istanbul court today on a charge of “propaganda in support of a terrorist organization” for interviewing Murat Karayilan of the Union of Kurdistan Communities (KCK), which the authorities regard as the urban wing of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK).The interview was published in three instalments in the newspaper Radikal in October 2010. Mavioglu had been facing the possibility of a seven-and-a-half-year jail sentence under article 7 (2) of Law 3713, the Anti-Terrorism Law. The newspaper’s editor, Hasan Kiliç, was also acquitted.Mavioglu said he was “appalled and pained as a Turkish citizen” by the impossibility of publishing an article with the least reference to a “terrorist” or “terrorist organization.”Turkey’s Anti-Terrorism Law poses a major danger for journalists who dare to cover the demands of Turkey’s Kurdish minority.——31.03.2013 – Courts continue to hound journalists who cover Kurdish minority issuesReporters Without Borders regrets that, despite the government’s denials, the demands of Turkey’s Kurdish minority continue to be off-limits for the country’s media. At least six people have been charged or convicted this month under Anti-Terrorist Law No. 3713 for writing about the subject.The Anti-Terrorist Law will be 20 years old on 12 April. It quickly became a weapon that could be used relentlessly against journalists who dare to broach the problem of minorities. This month’s trials have offered further examples of the appalling and insane way it is used to impose severe sentences on both writers and editors. Ibrahim Cesmecioglu, the editor of the newspaper Birgün, and Hakan Tahmaz, one of its columnists, were convicted of “reproducing a statement or communiqué by a terrorist organization” under article 6 of the Anti-Terrorist Law for an August 2008 article headlined “A unilateral ceasefire would increase the problem.” It quoted Murat Karayilan, a representative of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), who was interviewed in Qandil, in Iraqi Kurdistan.Citing article 10 of the European Convention of Human Rights, the prosecutor ended up urging their acquittal on the grounds that they had exercised their right to cover a newsworthy subject. But the Istanbul court’s presiding judge nonetheless sentenced Tahmaz to 10 months in prison for writing the article and Cesmecioglu to a fine of 16,600 Turkish lira (1,600 euros) for publishing it.The same court convicted Mehmet Güler, the author of a book entitled “The global state and the stateless Kurds” that was published in May 2010, and his publisher, Ragip Zarakolu, on 10 March on a charge of “PKK propaganda,” sentencing Güler to 18 months in prison and Zarakolu to a fine of 16,600 Turkish lira (1,600 euros).In this case again, the prosecutor had described a prison sentence as “disproportionate and contrary to the requirements of a democratic society.” Their conviction was an example of judicial persecution inasmuch as both men were already convicted on the same charge in connection with another book in June 2010. The journalist Ertugrul Mavioglu has meanwhile been charged with “PKK propaganda” for an interview with Karayilan published in three instalments in the newspaper Radikal from 28 to 30 October 2010. The case is due to be tried soon and its similarity with the Tahmaz and Cesmecioglu case suggests he will also be convicted. The charge carries a maximum sentence of seven years in prison.After expressing a readiness to make concessions to the Kurds in 2009, the authorities seem to be reverting to a hard line in the Kurdish issue. The modest political opening seems to have had no impact on the way the courts treat journalists.There was another example of indiscriminate repression at Newroz, the Kurdish New Year that is celebrated in the east of the country with demonstrations. On the night of 21 March, Necip Capraz of the local newspaper Yüksekova Haber was detained along with 10 other people in the southeastern city of Hakkari on suspicion of membership of the Turkish Assembly of the Union of Kurdistan Communities (KCK/TM), which is allegedly linked to the PKK.Capraz underwent heart surgery a year ago and is in poor health. He was arrested exactly three years earlier after being the victim of violence while covering a pro-Kurdish demonstration. A well-known journalist in Turkey’s Kurdish southeast, he was awarded the Press Solidarity Prize in 2005 by the Association of Contemporary Journalists (CGD).The authorities also went after foreign reporters. The German photo-journalist Benjamin Hiller was arrested while covering a demonstration by the Kurdish Democratic Party (BDP) in the southeastern city of Diyarbakir. Verbally assailed and accused of taking illegal photos, he was taken into police custody before finally being released an hour and a half later. The problem of Turkey’s minorities is such a sensitive topic that even mentioning it is often perceived as an attack on the country’s unity. Turkey’s Nobel literature laureate, Orhan Pamuk, was sentenced on appeal on 28 March to a fine of 6,000 Turkish lira (730 euros) for saying in an interview published in Switzerland in 2005 that “30,000 Kurds and a million Armenians have been killed in this country.” The sheer fact of his conviction is very significant.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its appeal to the judicial authorities to stop criminalizing the expression of views about issues of great interest to Turkish society.The press freedom organization plans to visit Turkey in early April for the 20th anniversary of the Anti-Terrorist Law and to investigate the persecution of journalists in recent weeks.
