Other times, it’s the growth potential I see in the share price. Occasionally, both of these combine together. At the moment, I think this is the case for Polymetal International (LSE:POLY) shares. Thanks to a recent increase in the dividend payout, the commodity stock now appeals to me on both fronts.Income and growthFirst up is the case for income. Earlier this month, we got the full-year results from the business. When looking at the viability of a stock to pay out a sustainable dividend, I’m looking at cash flow and debt levels. Polymetal reduced net debt by 16% from 2019, to around $1.3bn. This ensured free cash flow increased substantially, enabling a payout of $480m in dividends.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…This sharp increase in the dividend payments increases the dividend per share, and thus the overall dividend yield. Even with Polymetal shares rallying on the results, the yield still increased to 6.32%. This is almost double the FTSE 100 average, and definitely looks attractive to me.In terms of growth, the results showed a very strong year thanks to rising commodity prices. Revenue jumped 28%, with total cash costs down 3%, leading to a very healthy overall profit. I do accept that you could credit the performance mostly to gold and other precious metal prices, instead of Polymetal specifically. At the same time, as long as I’m aware of this, I don’t see it as a risk.Personally, I think the gold price will rise above $2,000 per ounce by the end of the year due to low interest rates around the world. Low rates mean investors feel more comfortable allocating funds elsewhere, even in non-income paying assets like gold. So even if the company just keeps on performing with the factors in its control, Polymetal shares should rise.What’s the risks with Polymetal shares?A big risk is the currency fluctuations for Polymetal shares. The company is exposed mainly to the Russian rouble and Kazakhstani tenge. This worked in the company’s favour last year, with both currencies depreciating versus the US dollar. However, if they bounce back this year, it’ll hurt profits. Given the volatility of these emerging markets currencies, I’d be cautious. Although not explicitly stated, I’d hope the company is aware of this risk and has taken steps to hedge or protect itself in this regard.One other risk is Covid-19. Any mine or construction area could be shut down again by the government. Given that Polymetal has mines around the world, it’s more exposed to Covid-19 disruptions than domestic businesses. Not only the mines, but transportation as well. However, I personally think the worst of the pandemic is behind us. Therefore I’m not overly concerned in this area.Ultimately, I think Polymetal shares look very attractive and would look to buy in. The generous dividend increase helps my passive income, and the upside from the gold price could pull the share price higher too.

Rupert Hargreaves owns no share mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Lloyds Banking Group. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. I have been considering buying Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) shares for my portfolio for quite some time. I nearly came close to pulling the trigger in late 2019. Back then, it looked as if the bank had finally moved on from its financial crisis problems and was at the beginning of a growth spurt.However, the coronavirus crisis forced me to rethink my opinion of the business. As loan losses piled up, it looked as if the bank would suffer years of low profits and high costs as it tried to recover all of the outstanding and defaulted loans. 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…Luckily, the Bank of England and the government acted rapidly to try and stabilise the economy. This has helped minimise the financial fallout.At the beginning of the pandemic, some analysts speculated that the UK’s largest banks could come close to collapse under the sheer volume of defaulted loans. They never even came close. In fact, lenders like Lloyds have exited the crisis in a stronger financial position than they went in thanks, in part, to the dividend ban that was in place for much of last year. As such, I’m now once again considering adding Lloyds shares to my portfolio. Growth potentialI’m incredibly excited about the future of the UK economy. All economic indicators show it’s on track to recover from the coronavirus pandemic by the middle of next year.There are also some signs that the pandemic has helped push pay and productivity across the economy higher as companies have invested in new tech and hiked wages for valuable staff. On top of this, consumers have saved tens of billions of pounds over the past 12-24 months. Once again, there are signs this money is being spent around the UK. As one of the UK’s largest banks, Lloyds’ fortunes are tied to those of the country’s economy. And as the economy returns to growth, I think the demand for loans and other financial products will increase. This should help Lloyds’ bottom line. The bank will also benefit from the fact it’s flush with cash. Its capital ratio was 16.1% at the end of March, compared to around 14% at the end of 2020. The higher the capital ratio, the more money Lloyds has to lend to customers, or return to investors. Lloyds shares on offer The combination of Lloyds’ strong balance sheet and UK economic growth suggests to me that now could be an excellent time to buy the stock. That said, the group is still likely to face some challenges as we advance. Low interest rates are causing havoc across the banking sector. These are likely to remain in place for some time, which will weigh on group profitability. At the same time, the bank could come under pressure again if coronavirus restrictions are extended. Still, despite these challenges, I’d buy Lloyds shares for their growth potential over the long run. Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 12th June, 2021 | More on: LLOY

Photo: Milos Tosic/Anglican Journal[Anglican Journal – Vancouver, British Columbia] “Our children are crying.”That was how Primate Fred Hiltz — paraphrasing the observation of delegate Michael Chartrand — described the pain in the room following the failure of the 42nd General Synod to pass a resolution amending the marriage canon, which would have allowed for the solemnization of same-sex marriage.“Those words are going to haunt the Anglican Church for a long time,” says Sydney Brouillard-Coyle, a youth delegate from the Diocese of Huron who identifies as gender non-conforming, queer and asexual. Though members of General Synod had long been preparing for upheaval after the vote on July 12 no matter the outcome, when the results finally came, the anguish it caused for LGBTQ Anglican youth almost defies description.Read the full article here.

RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick on Covid watch list Protestors braving the downpour on the day. Photo: Cian ReinhardtAROUND 2,000 concerned citizens, including celebrities, politicians and well-known sports personalities braved torrential downpours to shout “NO” to plans by Irish Cement Ltd to burn up to 90,000 tonnes of “toxic” waste per annum, at its production plant in Limerick.Today’s protest was organised by Limerick Against Pollution (LAP), a group of concerned residents who live near the Mungret plant.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The group’s spokeswoman, Claire Keating, said they would appeal the EPA decision and, if necessary, they would take their protest to the European courts.Claire Keating, Limerick Against Pollution. Photo: Cian ReinhardtLocal celebrity Love Island winner, Greg O’Shea, joined billionaire philanthropist and horse racing tycoon JP McManus, and former Irish, Munster, and Lions rugby hero Paul O’Connell, in supporting the massive protest.Last month, despite receiving over 4,000 objections, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) upheld a decision by An Bord Pleanala, as well as Limerick City and County Council, to allow Irish Cement burn used tyres, animal waste, sludge, plastics and other waste at its plant in Castlemungret.“When I heard what was going on with the license being passed, I couldn’t believe it. I thought I misread the situation initially,” O’Shea offered.“Obviously, I don’t know how much of an impact I can have, but I’m showing my support anyway for my city. I’m proud to be from Limerick and we have just got to do our best,” he added.Mr McManus, who kept a watching brief at oral hearings held by An Bord Pleanala last year, said today he remained “concerned” over the plans.Rugby giant Paul O’Connell, traded the Munster roar for a silent protest, explaining that he was “speaking with my feet”.Fianna Fáil MEP Billy Kelleher, who attended the protest, said he would gladly help bring the protest to Europe, and “supporting the appeal to the EPA”.“Defintely, beyond that, anything we can do with a European dimension I would be supporting and advocating as well,” he added.Protestors wore masks to highlight their issue. Photo: Cian ReinhardtCathaoirleach of the Metropolitan District of Limerick, James Collins, who lives near the Cement plant, said he feared he and other local residents would be “living under a cloud of incinerated toxic waste” should the plans go ahead, subject to an appeals process.Protestors said they were concerned harmful toxins could be released into the environment, if the proposals are finalised.Irish Cement has consistently refuted any suggestion of a public health threat from its plans.It has stated previously that any waste used will be treated and disposed of safely.The EPA stated last month, its “proposed determination” on Irish Cement’s application “provides for the acceptance of non-hazardous waste materials”.It explained the company must adhere to “more than 100 individual conditions relating to the environmental management, operation, control and monitoring of the installation”.Protestors make their way toward O’Connell Street. Photo: Cian ReinhardtIt also stated it was “satisfied that the emissions from the installation, when operated in accordance with the conditions of the proposed licence, will meet all required environmental protection standards and will not endanger human health or harm the environment”.The deadline for appeals to the EPA decision is October 15.The public concern over Irish Cement’s plans is largely fueled after it was prosecuted in court for breaching the terms of its industrial emissions licence.Last December the company pleaded guilty at Limerick District Court arising out of a prosecution brought by the EPA, to breaching the terms of its industrial emissions licence at its Limerick plant.The company apologised and was fined €4,000.The court heard a thick “glue-like” dust leaked from its Limerick plant, causing damage to nearby homes, cars and gardens.The court heard Irish Cement Ltd had three previous convictions for similar breaches of its industrial licence, including two in July 2018, and one breech in 2007.
