The arrival of September usually means a flurry of activity in the markets. It comes as traders return to their screens after the summer break. On the downside, it also tends to be one of the weakest months for share prices. With interim results due on the 24th, this doesn’t bode well for cinema group Cineworld (LSE: CINE). Cineworld shares are already pretty battered.Cineworld shares: a horror storyYou probably know that 2020 has been something of a horror show for the once-mighty company. It was priced around 220p a pop back in January. But Cineworld shares tumbled 95% to just 21p by March as the coronavirus ravaged the globe and lockdowns were enforced.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…Some believe the worst to be over. Broker Peel Hunt, for example, recently slapped a price target of 180p on the stock! But I’m less enthusiastic for now. True, many of the company’s sites have now reopened. However, there’s still a dearth of new releases. Likely blockbusters (Top Gun 2, James Bond) have had their release dates put back as studios seek to maximise their investment returns.News that movie-goers must wear masks when visiting is another setback. Why bother with a trip out when you can have a more comfortable experience via Netflix or Amazon Prime at home?Ominously, Cineworld shares also remain among the most shorted on the London stock market. The only company more hated is Hammerson — the shopping centre owner-manager. When you consider just how much debt the former has on its books, this isn’t surprising.Yes, any remotely positive comments from management on the company’s outlook next month could see Cineworld shares rally as shorters are ‘squeezed’ and forced to buy back in. With so much working against it right now, however, there are surely far easier ways of making money on the markets.A better bet…Cineworld shares aren’t the investment that’s given holders read more

Rolls-Royce share price: what I’d do given the upcoming full-year result

first_img Although shares are still down by around half over the last 12 months, Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) shares have rallied recently. As of 24 February, the Rolls-Royce share price is up over 9% over the last week and 14% over the last month.Given that the aerospace engine maker reports its 2020 full-year results on 11 March, the Rolls-Royce share price could have further moves ahead of it. If the results and guidance are better than expected, shares could go higher. If they don’t meet expectations, shares could decline. With the upcoming full-year result, here’s what I’d do.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…The upcoming full-year resultIn terms of Rolls-Royce’s upcoming full-year result, I’ll look for several things.First, I’d look to see if management updates widebody engine flying hours guidance. Civil aviation is a big part of the company’s business and weakness in the area is one reason why management forecasted a free cash flow outflow of around £2bn in 2021. That amount of expected free cash outflow didn’t meet many analyst estimates. If guidance for wide-body engine flying hours is stronger than expected during the full-year result, however, I reckon the Rolls-Royce share price could rise.Second, I’ll look to see if management updated cash flow guidance. Specifically, I want to see if management is more confident on their free cash flow target for next year. As of late January, management seemed to be hedging somewhat on their target, as they said their goal is “to deliver at least £750 million of free cash flow (excluding disposals) as early as 2022, contingent on the expected recovery in engine flying hours”. If management doesn’t say the contingent part in the full year result report, I’ll be more optimistic on the stock.I’ll also look for any hints of how the ITP Aero sale process is going. If management gets a higher than expected price for ITP Aero, I reckon there is a chance that the market could value Rolls-Royce’s other assets higher too. If that occurs, I think it could help the Rolls-Royce share price.Lastly, I’m been keen to see if management gives any updates on their green strategy. For various reasons whether deserved or not, the market is currently pretty optimistic on many green stocks. If that optimism continues and Rolls-Royce successfully sells itself as more of a green stock itself, I reckon there’s potential for higher stock prices.The Rolls-Royce share price: what I’d doI’d buy and hold shares given the current Rolls-Royce share price. Although it might take longer than expected due to the spread of Covid-19 variants, I nevertheless think a recovery in civil aviation will happen. Companies like GlaxoSmithKline are working on potential vaccine candidates for variants that might be ready as soon as next year and the number of existing new cases is falling in many areas of the world. Longer term, I think Rolls-Royce has potential to add a lot of value by servicing propulsion systems for the electric air taxi market.With this said, Rolls-Royce shares could decline if its full-year results don’t meet expectations. If the time to civil aviation recovery lasts longer than expected or if management makes bad capital allocation decisions, the stock might not do well.

2 FTSE 100 recovery stocks to buy

first_img2 FTSE 100 recovery stocks to buy As the global economic recovery continues, I’ve been looking for FTSE 100 recovery stocks to add to my portfolio. Here are two companies I’d buy today. FTSE 100 recovery The economic fallout from the pandemic has severely impacted real estate investment trust (REIT) Landsec (LSE: LAND). The landlord has struggled to collect rents from its retail and office tenants. As a result, the value of its portfolio has also declined.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…These twin headwinds have devastated the company’s balance sheet and profitability, and investors have rushed to sell the shares.Between the middle of February and the end of October last year, shares in the FTSE 100 company lost nearly 50% of their value.Today, shares in the REIT are still down around 26% from their year-end 2019 level. However, I think this could be an opportunity. As the economy reopens, customers are returning to stores and workers to offices.Landsec’s rent collection is also improving. The company collected 67% of rents by the 25 March payment date this year, which was up from last year’s figure of 60%. This wasn’t a vast improvement, but I think it shows the company is heading in the right direction. I’m expecting a further improvement in rent collection figures in the next few quarters. The biggest challenge the company now faces is collecting outstanding rents. Unfortunately, it’s also susceptible to another wave of coronavirus. Such a development could further impact its property portfolio, which may send the share price plunging (again). Despite this risk, I’d buy the FTSE 100 company for my portfolio of recovery stocks as the economy reopens. Turnaround in processThe other FTSE 100 recovery stock I’d buy for my portfolio right now is Pearson (LSE: PSON). Over the past five years or so, this company has been in the midst of a transition. The educational group has been trying to move its offering online, away from costly textbooks, where sales have been falling. The coronavirus pandemic has only accelerated this strategy. The company’s latest trading update tells the story. Its global online learning business reported sales growth of 25% for the first quarter of 2020, the best performance of all the group’s divisions. Total revenues across the enterprise rose by 5%. This performance is even more impressive considering the company has been grappling with school and university closures, as well as exam cancellations. As the world starts to move on from the pandemic, I think this trend can continue. Pearson’s online business should continue to grow, and a more normal programme of exams will help its other divisions. The company still faces some of the issues that have hampered growth over the past few years. These include competition in the educational materials market and the high cost of materials, which has pushed some students to reuse or share products. A lacklustre economic recovery may also push down demand for educational training. Still, I’d buy the FTSE 100 company as a recovery play for my portfolio, despite these risks and challenges.  Image source: Getty Images I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Cheeky Tongan try at the Hong Kong Sevens

first_imgSunday Mar 30, 2008 Cheeky Tongan try at the Hong Kong Sevens In a tight encounter between Tonga and Australia at this weekends Hong Kong leg of the IRB Sevens, Tongan flyer Teu Nafe showed that a bit of trickery can go a long way.Nafe got the ball a few meters out and all he had to do was dot it down, but realising the importance of getting the kick closer to the posts, very important in Sevens as all conversions are taken as dropkicks, he pulled of his bag of tricks.A little step, a huge dummy and he was away, leaving the hapless Aussie defender on the floor. Outrageous, possibly even unnecessary, but in a tight game, every point counts.Whichever way you look at it, pure entertainment factor is what makes Sevens great to watch, and this was just another example of that.

USDA Announces Additional Steps to Stop African Swine Fever from Entering…

first_img Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for March 6, 2019Next articleU.S. Ethanol Exports Reach Record High for 2018 USDA Communications Facebook Twitter SHARE The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) today announced additional steps to keep African swine fever (ASF) from entering the United States, even as the disease spreads internationally. These steps strengthen the protections announced last fall after the deadly swine disease reached China. The goal remains to protect our nation’s swine industry from this disease. ASF does not affect people, nor is it a food safety issue.In coordination with the pork industry, USDA’s Undersecretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs, Greg Ibach, has stated the following enhanced activities to intensify multi-agency efforts toward the prevention of ASF’s entry into the United States:Work with Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) to train and add 60 additional beagle teams for a total of 179 teams working at key U.S. commercial, sea, and air ports;Coordinate with CBP on the further expansion of arrival screenings at key U.S. commercial sea and air ports – including checking cargo for illegal pork/pork products and ensuring travelers who pose an ASF risk receive secondary agricultural inspection;Increase inspections and enforcement of garbage feeding facilities to ensure fed garbage is cooked properly to prevent potential disease spread;Heighten producer awareness and encourage self-evaluations of on-farm biosecurity procedures;Work to develop accurate and reliable testing procedures to screen for the virus in grains, feeds and additives, and swine oral fluid samples;Work closely with officials in Canada and Mexico on a North American coordinated approach to ASF defense, response, and trade maintenance;And continue high level coordination with the U.S. pork industry leadership to assure unified efforts to combat ASF introduction.“We understand the grave concerns about the ASF situation overseas,” said Ibach. “We are committed to working with the swine industry, our producers, other government agencies, and neighboring countries to take these additional steps.”At the same time, USDA is continuing to enhance our planning so that we’re prepared in case we ever have to combat ASF. Along with our wide range of partner groups, we are working through several different ASF planning and response exercises. These cover different aspects – from trade implications to policy discussions to the boots-on-the-ground realities of a response. These will help everyone involved ensure their response plans are ready and identify any preparedness gaps that must be addressed.ASF is a highly contagious and deadly viral disease affecting both domestic and feral (wild) pigs in all age groups. It is spread by contact with the body fluids of infected animals. It can also be spread by ticks that feed on infected animals. For more information, please visit the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service ASF webpage.

Are students ready to fall back one hour?

first_imgFacebook + posts TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history New coach, new arena, new attendance record (Photo courtesy of Creative Commons). print(Photo courtesy of Creative Commons).Students may be looking forward to an extra hour of sleep this weekend, but some counselors warn that the annual switch to daylight saving time can affect a person’s well-being. The change, which officially occurs at 2 a.m. Sunday, means the sunrise will be around 6:30 a.m. and sunset around 5:30 p.m.Michelle Pond, a senior athletic training major, said the shortened day can be hard, “especially if you work in an office.”“All you’ve done is gotten up in the morning, gone to work, sat inside all day, and then get off and it’s dark,” Pond said. A study completed at Aarhus University in Denmark found an 8 percent increase in the number of people diagnosed with depression after DST.The study of 185,419 people was completed by associate professor Søren D. Østergaard.“The transition to standard time is likely to be associated with a negative psychological effect as it very clearly marks the coming of a period of long, dark and cold days,” Østergaard told Science Daily.Dr. Amanda Swartz, a psychologist in TCU’s Counseling and Mental Health Center, sees a connection with the increase of diagnosed depression during this time of year.“So many things with depression, like getting outside and being in the light can be helpful,” she said. “So when there are less hours of light, it can negatively impact that.”Weston McFarlin, a junior film-television-digital media major, said he doesn’t like the early sunset. “I hate the winter. It gets darker,” he said. “As a college student, you usually stay up the same time so it just makes you feel like you’re isolating yourself.”Still, for most people the switch is a chance to catch up on sleep. “I have to work on Sunday so it’s going to be nice to get an extra hour of sleep,” said Austin Phillips, a senior economics major.Most cell phones, tablets and other electronic devices will automatically alter its clock settings, but analogs will have to be adjusted.Clocks will move forward one hour on March 12, 2017.

While Rams fans lick their wounds and mourn their loss, Americans everywhere re-heat their favorite Super Bowl leftovers with little recognition of their history and importance. Commercials, halftime shows, and referees may be important to Super Bowl Sunday but the importance of chicken wings is something rarely talked about but purchased by the billions, yes billions, to enjoy while we watch the game. According to the National Chicken Council, an estimated 1.38 billion chicken wings were expected to be consumed during Super Bowl LIII. These numbers have continued to rise with this year’s prediction increasing by 27 million wings. Let me help put this into perspective. 1.38 billion wings are enough to put 640 wings on every seat in all 31 NFL stadiums. Americans everywhere spent billions of dollars to enjoy wings of all different flavors while they watched the showdown between the Rams and Patriots. Like Tom Brady with Super Bowl rings, chicken wings and football are another compatible pair. The pair’s origin dates back to the 1980s when Americans started to prefer their chicken boneless and skinless. Wings, being an inexpensive byproduct for chicken producers became popular. Restaurants and bars grew fond of the idea to sell inexpensive protein covered in sauce. Bars found consumers purchasing wings and beer as a pair, and beer sales skyrocketed. At the same time, technology was advancing and that meant sports bars became a popular place to eat and watch sporting events, most commonly, football. Chicken wings have had long-standing importance in football. And while Tom Brady has become a familiar face to the Super Bowl and gains most of the media attention, the 1.38 billion chicken wings would argue their role in Super Bowls will continue be more important.

The amendment also requires updated reports from the service branches on their hazing prevention and response efforts. Rep. Chu released the following statement:“Hazing has no place in our military. It breeds fear and distrust of peers and leadership, and undermines unit cohesion,” Rep. Chu said. “I am glad to have the continued bipartisan support in my efforts to address hazing in our armed services.”Congresswoman Chu has led the effort to address hazing in our armed services ever since her nephew, Lance Corporal Harry Lew, was hazed to the point of committing suicide while serving in the Marines in Afghanistan.In the three years since his passing, Chu introduced the Harry Lew Military Hazing Accountability and Prevention Act, testified before Senate and House Armed Services hearings, and participated in numerous hearings and meetings where she questioned top military officials directly about their hazing policies.As a result of her efforts, the FY2013 NDAA required each military branch to report to Congress on hazing within their ranks.“Those reports were inconsistent and indicated substandard tracking results in unreliable data,” Chu continued. “My amendment is a direct result of the shortcomings made clear by our previous efforts. We must have unbiased, independent reporting on this issue to ensure that policies intended to address it are ultimately successful.” Your email address will not be published.
