Rolls-Royce: here’s what I think will happen next after the rights issue

Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Rolls-Royce: here’s what I think will happen next after the rights issue In October, Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) shareholders overwhelmingly approved a rights issue that improved the company’s liquidity substantially. Although the rights issue added only £2bn directly, shareholder approval of the capital raise also unlocked additional debt options that increased liquidity by another £3bn. Some £2bn of that is from a bond issuance earlier in October and the rest from a two-year bank loan. 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…With the total £5bn in extra liquidity, many analysts now think Roll-Royce has enough money to make it through the pandemic. But now that the rights offering is approved, what comes next? Here’s what I think might happen. Less volatility?Due to the stock offering, I don’t believe Rolls-Royce will see the big lurches up or down that it has seen of late. Its upside potential is reduced, I feel, as there are simply a lot more shares after the rights issue.In the rights issue, RR shareholders were entitled to buy 10 new shares at 32p-per-share for every three they owned. If every investor took the company up on the offer, its stock float would have more than quadrupled. So if RR recovers to its pre-pandemic earnings level, its profits will be divided among more shares and earnings per share will likely be lower. That being said, I think the airplane engine maker’s prospects have improved overall. As a result of the rights issue, many analysts think RR has a higher probability of making it out of the pandemic. I also don’t think the worst case scenario is very likely given the recent Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine candidate news, and the Moderna news too.The interim vaccine data is better than many had expected. In the worst-case scenario, RR would take a lot longer to recover than expected, but a vaccine could transform its fortunes.Earnings recovery: still some way off?The shares have surged recently due to the vaccine news. But I think Rolls-Royce could take some time to recover fundamentally. Long-haul flights depend on what’s happening in multiple nations to recover. And many analysts think the category could bounce back later than other segments of air travel. Some analysts think it could be 2025 before the wide body engine market recovers.With that said, I still think there’s potential for a surprise in terms of the speed to normalisation. The fast rebound of travel in China also gives me hope that travel outside the country could come back faster than expected. That is, if an effective vaccine is distributed sooner rather than later. Given the economic destruction Covid-19 has caused, governments around the world have spent a lot of money fighting it. And once a vaccine is approved in the West, governments globally will be focused on distributing it as fast as they can. Effective distribution is key to any return to normality and also key to a Rolls-Royce recovery, I feel. Going forward, I would keep a close eye on RR. If there are meaningful dips, I would consider buying the stock and holding for the long term. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

Guatemalan elections: Social Democrats win, progressive parties grow

first_imgElections took place in Guatemala on June 16 with a few surprising results. The elections included the first round of presidential candidates as well as congressional and municipal candidates.The second round of presidential elections will take place in August when the top two candidates face off. Pending final results, the runoff will be between Sandra Torres (National Unity of Hope, UNE) with 25.74 percent of the vote and Alejandro Giammattei (Vamos) with 13.89 percent. Edmond Mulet of the Humanist party, a candidate linked to both traditional politics and the United Nations (which do not always align in Guatemala), was in third place with 11.14 percent.Thelma Cabrera (Movement for the Liberation of the Peoples, MLP) came in fourth place with 10.42 percent, significantly outperforming predictions. This result is a strong blow against the power of the oligarchy, which had denied that an Indigenous (Maya Mam) woman rooted in peasant struggles could present a serious political threat.Of the remaining 15 candidates, five received between 4 percent and 6 percent of the vote and the remaining 10 received a total of 14 percent among them.In a political system dominated by an entrenched oligarchy, there are very few possibilities of winning real change by electoral means. They are even less in a country with the high level of corruption that exists in Guatemala.However, analyzing electoral results can give important insight into the level of political consciousness among the masses. In this case, the most important conclusion is that, despite not advancing to the runoff, the peasant and Indigenous movement represented by Thelma Cabrera and the MLP has established itself as a political force that cannot be ignored.Congressional resultsUNE will have 61 seats in the new legislature, short of the 81 needed for a majority but well ahead of any other party. The second largest party, consistent with the presidential results, was Vamos with 19 seats.A coalition between UNE and various center-right and right-wing parties will likely be pursued in order to govern. This means that the already limited social-democratic policies promoted by UNE will probably be weakened.The various progressive and anti-corruption parties won a total of 19 seats, with the biggest single party the Seed Movement with 8 seats. This party was recently formed to represent relatively progressive sectors of urban professionals.In summary, the results mean traditional politicians continue to control the state institutions and the “Pact of the Corrupt” will remain in power, but now led by its social-democratic wing.Both UNE and Vamos have stated that they will not renew the CICIG (International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala) mandate, which means the U.N.-backed commission that had carried out anti-corruption investigations will cease operation this fall. The progressive struggle against corruption will have to be carried out in the streets and in opposition to state power.Fraud and abstentionismAround noon on June 17, Thelma Cabrera publicly stated that she did not recognize the results of the election due to fraud originating with the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE). She called for mass mobilizations and for a transparent vote count, whose records would be available for review.MLP’s statement claims: “On the national level, there is evidence of vote buying by the traditional parties, which was promptly reported to the TSE, which has not [been responded to] at this time.”In several municipalities there were busing of voters by the traditional parties, irregularities in the vote count and violent disturbances related to ballot transportation. In Panzós, Alta Verapaz department, Alejandro Coc Poou died from gunshot wounds when he and other members of the community were attacked by UNE members while waiting for the results of the vote count. (tinyurl.com/yxmadvrz) Most of these incidents have been linked to municipal elections.If the TSE does not comply with the demands made by the MLP, it will be difficult to ascertain the existence and extent of electoral fraud. But what is very clear is the drop in participation in the elections, which fell from 70 percent in 2015 to 60 percent this year.According to official figures released when 94 percent of the voting tables had been counted, 9 percent of the votes were blank, and another 4 percent were null. If the blank vote had been for a presidential candidate, it would have come in fifth.The clashes between civilians and police, the reported irregularities and the high levels of abstentionism are evidence of the flawed character of the electoral process.There are multiple reports of demonstrations and protesters blocking major roads in several departments and cities, including the capital, explicitly rejecting the results of the election. TSE maintains that no fraud occurred and is refusing to turn over the records.Conclusions about the popular struggleThe first thing to note is that support for the far right, which has governed the country in recent years, seems to have been deflated. FCN-Nacion, the current president’s party formed by ex-military and big business interests, did not win even 5 percent of the presidential vote. PAN-Podemos, the other far-right party, believed that it would make the runoff, but came in fifth and only won 2 seats in Congress.On the other hand, the center-right, mainly represented by Vamos and Unión del Cambio Nacionalista, UCN, which are now the second and third largest parties in Congress, made significant gains. This is despite the fact that UCN presidential candidate and leader Mario Estradawas was arrested in Miami on drug trafficking charges.Without even accounting for the possibility of electoral fraud by the oligarchal parties, the fact that a Maya Mam woman, and even more so one whose roots are in the peasant struggle, won three departments and came in second in seven others is possibly the most important result.This symbolic victory is the result of the growing strength of the peasant and Indigenous movement that refuses to make corrupt deals with traditional politicians and which responds to perceived fraud with mass mobilizations.MLP was not the only progressive party, just the one which received the most presidential votes. Combining the results achieved by the five parties that can be characterized as progressive — MLP, Winaq, URNG Maiz, Libre and Convergencia — gives 19.56 percent of the presidential vote to progressive candidates. That’s enough to come in second and advance to the runoff.Two important conclusions can be drawn. The first is that the progressive social movement is growing, and there is an opportunity to open a period of serious struggle. The second is that in order to win that struggle, these parties and the social movements they represent need to unite and present a single front against conservatism and neoliberalism.The oligarchy is trembling at the rise of Thelma Cabrera and the movement she leads, but the fight to root out corruption and dismantle the traditional political structures is only beginning. Transformation of Guatemalan society won’t come from Congress or the Presidency but from popular organization. These results prove this consolidation is a real threat to the powers that be.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Evan Hahn, Vice-President Credit-Agribusiness with Farm Credit Mid-America, says tracking your fixed costs is the key to profitability in 2017. “At Farm Credit,” he stated, “we encourage producers to keep an eye on their fixed costs to determine is those fixed costs are positively or negatively affecting their bottom line.”He told HAT good record keeping is the best way to track your fixed costs, “This provides a fuller picture of how your costs are impacting your production costs as well as the profitability of your entire operation.” Hahn identified the top two fixed costs that farmers need to track: equipment costs and land costs.  “This is an ideal time for growers to look at their equipment utilization, and ask themselves which equipment to I need to have vs. what I would like to have, and are there things that I am not fully utilizing,” Hahn said. On the land side, he said growers should begin with an honest assessment of the profitability of each acre, “The land that is not generating a positive margin can stress an operation.” He added, the better your information, the better prepared you will be to negotiate rental rates with landlords.Farm Credit Services has a variety of on-line resources that can be found at e-farmcredit.com/insights.

After the clinic, he invited her to watch him coach Gianna’s basketball team.On Wednesday, Pebley emphasized the legacy Bryant left as a father even over the one he left as a basketball player.“You really knew right away that he was completely present in his role as a dad and a coach,” Pebley said. “He loved what he was doing.”Bryant, the father of four girls, had loved and attacked his role as a girl dad.

While many keep their eyes on the men’s game alone, Kobe would often be seen at UConn Huskie games, WNCAA Final Fours and WNBA matchups.Recently, these appearances happened with Gianna, as she was hoping to play for UConn someday. Despite the grief and despair that fills every heart in America upon hearing about Kobe’s death, Pebley emphasized finally the tragedy was an opportunity to learn.“It was a great opportunity to revisit what Mamba Mentality means,” Pebley said about Bryant’s passing. “It’s to be very intentional with everything that you’re doing; completely where your feet are; and elite in your actions, decisions and your thoughts.”Regardless of your background, Bryant’s death was a tough pill to swallow. This was not just because of how good he was as a player, but how good of a man he was.His five rings, MVP trophy and 33,643 points leave him as one of the greatest NBA players ever, but it was the lessons that Bryant taught us that expanded his legacy outside of America and outside of basketball.He taught us to always work harder, to attack each and every part of our lives with the same amount of ferocity and to love the people and experiences in our life as much as we can while we have them.It’s been a week, and we still miss you, Kobe. Rest in peace Black Mamba. You are gone but never forgotten.

The Bench of Justice Alka Sarin made the above-said observation while dismissing a petition for grant of regular bail to the Petitioner under Sections 153-A, 295-A and 505 of the Indian Penal Code, 1860 and Section 3(1)(V) of the Scheduled Castes and the Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. Facts of the Case An FIR was lodged on the complaint made by one Savita Kajal and Kuldeep Bhukkal wherein it was alleged that Savita Kajal had uploaded a post of Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar on her Facebook ID and one Vijender Sarsawa (petitioner herein) made insulting and objectionable comments on the post to create disharmony in society. It was further alleged that the petitioner uses filthy language and makes objectionable comments against females belonging to Scheduled Castes. It was also alleged that insulting comments have been made by the petitioner against Muslim women. The counsel for the petitioner contended that the ingredients of Section 153-A, 295-A and 505 are not made out and he has been in custody since 24.09.2020. Earlier, the counsel for the petitioner had submitted before the Court that the complainant is a chronic litigant and is in the habit of filing false and frivolous complaints with ulterior motive to extort money from innocent persons. It was further submitted that even perusal of the messages, which the Petitioner allegedly texted on Facebook “were in fact messages received by him and forwarded without any motive much less to hurt the feeling of the complainant or the other citizens of the country.” Court’s Observation and order The Court, in its order, said, “A bare perusal of the screenshots of the said posts prima facie reveals that the posts are not only derogatory in nature but are made against particular communities.” Further, the Court noted that the petitioner, along with the petition appended as Annexure just one of the posts, “whereas a number of posts as made by the petitioner have been attached with the status report.” In view of the above, the Court did not find it fit to extend the benefit of regular bail to the Petitioner. The Petitioner’s bail application was hence, dismissed. Case title – Vijender Kumar v.

Jesus completes demolition of Cornmarket Shops

first_imgby Jesus College and approved by the city council form part of Jesus College’s master plan for 2017-2021 to expand the college, with the new block due to provide additional accommodation for students at the college as well as a new set of teaching spaces. The only property on Cornmarket which retains its original historical form is lot 26-68, also owned by Jesus College. The lot, which currently houses Pret A Manger, was constructed in 1386 but restored by the college in 1983. The clearance of the retail blockalso provides for the first time aclear line of sight from Cornmarket Street onto Jesus College’s Second Quad, although this will change once the project is completed in 2020. The lot originally housed a number of high street shops including Next, FatFace and River Island. The block, Northgate House, was originally constructed in the 1960s as part of an array of development works along Cornmarket Street which included Clarendon House, currently occupied by Wasabi. The land was leased to the shops by Jesus College, who own the properties and the leasehold. The project was partly funded by a gift of £15 million to the college by Hong Kong entrepreneur Dr Henry Cheng. Contractors employed to construct a new accommodation site for Jesus College have this week completed demolition of the row of shops which previously occupied the site of the new complex. Works began in September 2018, however the new development will begin to take form from now onwards. Proposals put forward Architecturally the building isdefined by vertical elements, tallwindows and narrow shop fronts intended to tie in with the historic visage of the street, which would originally have been made up of narrow plots intended for use by merchants’ houses. Plans have been generally well received. The lower level of the building will continue to provide space for retail units which front onto Cornmarket Street, preserving the retail heritage of the road. The units will also include space for 38 new cycle spaces. The architectural significance of the quad’s Dutch gables have been noted by architectural historian Pevsner as well as author Simon Jenkins, who compared the windows to Welsh dragons’ teeth.last_img read more
