ISTANBUL (AP) — A Russian-flagged cargo ship sank off Turkey's Black Sea coast on Sunday and emergency workers were out rescuing the crew, an official said.
The Turkish coast guard said the ship was called ARVIN and the ship's crew were on lifeboats, according to official Anadolu news agency.
The governor of Bartin province announced the shipwreck off Inkumu in northern Turkey and said rescue efforts had reached least three crewmembers out of the 15 who were on three lifeboats. Gov. Sinan Guner said there were no reports of deaths.
The area has been buffeted by heavy rains, snow and strong winds.
“The weather conditions are bad and the rescue teams are also having trouble getting out but they will," he told Anadolu.
Rescue workers from the coast guard and Turkey's emergency authority were at the site. The governor said they had also requested help from civilian ships.
7 Low-Priced Dividend Stocks Under $10
The recent trading activity surrounding low-priced stocks like GameStop (NYSE:GME) is a reminder to investors of the high-risk nature involved with these stocks. Often when a stock trades for under $10 (also termed a penny stock), it is trading that low for a reason. The company may not be profitable, or in the case of GameStop, it finds itself with a business model that no longer fits with consumer trends.
But that’s not always the case. It is possible to find low-priced stocks, even penny stocks, that offer great value. This is particularly true if the stock offers investors a dividend. Dividend-earning stocks are a diversification source for a consumer’s portfolio, particularly if the dividend gets reinvested. It’s literally like paying yourself for owning the stock.
And the stocks in this presentation look ready also to deliver some additional stock price growth that can increase your total return.
