Is the Carnival share price the biggest bargain on the FTSE 100 today?

first_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Enter Your Email Address The Carnival share price has been hit harder than almost any other by Covid-19. As the world’s biggest cruise ship operator, it was always going to struggle. In total, 1,500 passengers were infected with the virus across its fleet, including 700 on the Diamond Princess, of whom 13 died.The Carnival (LSE: CCL) share price is down in the dumps. It started 2019 trading at around 3,650p. Today, you can buy it for 970p, a drop of three quarters. Some may have expected it to fall even further. So has the panic been overdone?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…Last week, management at the FTSE 100 company, which also owns Cunard, P&O, and Costa cruise brands, announced pay cuts and job losses aimed at saving “hundreds of millions of dollars” over the next year or so. Cost savings are essential, given that the company has generated “no meaningful revenue” since the crisis struck.FTSE 100 stock in troubled watersSome have suggested the pandemic could shrink the cruise industry for good. Many of the industry’s critics would rather like that. Will it happen or can the Carnival share price recover?Longstanding cruise customers are showing signs of resilience. Carnival reports that 38% have asked for refunds following cancellations, with the majority choosing to sail at a later date. We will know more from August, when Carnival plans to get eight of its ships out there again, although only in North America.Demand might be stronger than you think. Operators are already reporting strong bookings for 2021. Many are attracted by big discounts. Others feel safe booking having been told they can reschedule, or cancel, without fear of penalties. The Carnival share price could benefit.The demand seems to be coming from regular cruise travellers who know and trust their operators. They’re calculating that cruise operators will be working harder than ever to uphold hygiene and social distancing. However, the company still faces tough questions on how the coronavirus spread on three of its ships.The Carnival share price is temptingly lowCarnival is the only stock listed both in the US and UK, but isn’t banking on a bailout from either government. It’s issued enough debt and equity to continue operating in the current environment until November. As Coronavirus pandemic shows signs of receding, it could just make it.You would still have to be supremely brave to buy the Carnival share price, even at today’s low valuation. I think the big threat is we get a second wave of the pandemic when autumn comes. That could shake sentiment.On the other hand, the cruise industry should be ready for it this time. If it avoids a major outbreak, the Carnival share price could prove surprisingly buoyant.However, it’s still too big a risk for me right now. I believe there are far more exciting stocks to buy today.

This FTSE small-cap UK stock has reinstated its dividends! Should you buy shares?

Professional recruitment specialists The Robert Walters Group (LSE:RWA) delighted investors this week by reinstating dividends at 4.5p. The FTSE small cap cut its dividend in April as the global pandemic took hold and the UK was in lockdown. With job losses mounting daily, recruitment is a tough industry to be in. And this is mirrored in the firm’s net fee income decline of 31% for the quarter ended 30 September. However, the group’s net cash increased by 70% year-on-year to almost £139m, which stemmed from cutting 500 jobs.Is a dividend justified as job losses mount?The Robert Walters share price rose nearly 8% on the news of the dividend comeback on Thursday. But, you may wonder, how can Robert Walters justify reinstating its dividend, if it’s still suffering and its future is uncertain? Well, the good news is, the company is confident in its recruitment efforts towards tech sectors, including e-commerce, cybersecurity and fintech. These are all areas in which it has seen strong signs of hiring resume. This is reassuring, but it was already struggling before the pandemic, with Brexit worries putting a pause on recruitment. Unfortunately this may well continue to hold the company back in the coming months.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…Is Robert Walters a good investment?Robert Walters is a well-established firm, with a global presence in over 30 countries. This means it requires the recruitment outlook to turn positive in many regions, not just the UK. The firm specialises in finding jobs for career professionals in engineering, finance, tech, and IT. Although some of these sectors look as if they’ll withstand the pandemic, there’s still uncertainty ahead.The UK stock was first publicly listed in July 2000, but the firm has been operating since 1985. If you’d invested £1,000 in Robert Walters stock back at its IPO price of £1.70 per share, your investment would be worth approximately £2,328 today. However, those unlucky investors that bought in at the start of 2020 will be down 28%.Lack of liquidity in a FTSE small capAs it’s a FTSE small-cap stock, it doesn’t have a lot of liquidity, meaning there are not thousands of buyers and sellers at any one time. This can be problematic if you want to get out of the stock quickly, as you may get a lower price for your shares than you would like. That’s one reason FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 stocks are preferable for beginners to investing.Robert Walters has a price-to-earnings ratio of 8 and earnings per share of 48p. As the outlook for jobs is negative just now, this is not a stock I want to buy. It’s reassuring that it sees signs of improvement, but I think growth is unlikely and progress will be slow until the job situation improves around the world. I’m sure things will look up for this firm once a vaccine is in widespread use, but until then I’ll avoid buying shares in Robert Walters. I think there are better shares to buy in the stock market.

Greek people refuse to forget after 46 years

first_imgTens of thousands of people marched in Athens, Thessaloníki and other Greek cities on Nov. 17 to commemorate a student uprising, strongly supported by workers, that had been brutally crushed by tanks 46 years ago. This is an annual event.Students had occupied the Athens Polytechnic on Nov. 14, 1973, to protest the fascist military government (also called “Regime of the Colonels”) that from 1967 to 1974 served “by fire and iron” the interests of the bourgeois class at the expense of the people — while implementing plans of U.S. and NATO imperialists.The students had set up an underground radio station that began agitating for people to come by. They asked soldiers to refuse orders to shoot the “brothers protesting,” raising a sharp challenge to the colonels in power.While the colonels might have started their coup on their own initiative, they received billions of dollars in military and economic aid from the United States — money given within the framework of the Cold War against the Soviet Union.This year’s march wound through the streets of Athens and ended at the U.S. Embassy, where European Union and U.S. flags were burned.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ag Secretaries Unite to Urge Ratification of USMCA

first_img Facebook Twitter Ag-secretaries-together-on-USMCASecretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue and former U.S. Secretaries of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, Dan Glickman, and John Block-USDA photo by Tom WithamAll of the living U.S. Secretaries of Agriculture agree. They want the U.S. Congress to ratify the U.S. Mexico Canada Trade Agreement, and they have all signed a letter to leaders in Congress expressing their support for USMCA.Three former secretaries were with current secretary Sonny Perdue at USDA Thursday to voice their support. Dan Glickman and John Block accompanied immediate past secretary in the Obama administration, Tom Vilsack, who asked two questions.“One is, is this enforceable, and I think there is a good faith effort being done by the Administration and Congress to make sure and reassure people that this is an enforceable agreement,” Vilsack said. “Secondly, is this a better deal than the current deal? I think under any evaluation, from the U.S. agriculture perspective it is clearly is a better deal. So, with that our hope is that it gets done, and gets done soon.”John Block served under Ronald Reagan and noted the bipartisan push.“The Secretaries of Agriculture, both parties, are standing shoulder to shoulder saying to the Congress, go ahead and pass this legislation, because that’s the first step,” he said. “Get that done, and then maybe we’ll have some momentum to move forward on this trade agreement with Japan. Maybe, I can hope and wish, maybe momentum to move ahead with China and start rapping out these deals.”Dan Glickman served in the Clinton White House. He said the absence of certain trade deals is fueling uncertainty in rural America.“That uncertainty would be much worse if we didn’t get a trade agreement with our partners, our neighbors, Mexico and Canada,” Glickman said. “Afterall, if we can’t work out with them then we can’t work out with anybody, and then farmers really face very serious problems and anxieties in terms of trying to sell their products to the world.”Secretary Block had a typical John Block final thought, straight to the point.“My final word is get it passed!” he said.Other secretaries signing the letter are Mike Espy (Clinton), Ann Veneman (W. Bush), Mike Johanns (W. Bush), and Ed Shafer (W. Bush), saying, “We need a strong and reliable trade deal with our top two customers for U.S. agriculture products. USMCA will provide certainty in the North American market for the U.S. farm sector and rural economy. We strongly support ratification of USMCA.” The full letter is here.Current Secretary Perdue added, “Support for USMCA crosses all political parties, specifically when it comes to the agriculture community, and I am proud to stand side by side with former agriculture secretaries who agree USMCA is good news for American farmers. I commend President Trump and Ambassador Lighthizer, for their perseverance, leadership, and hard work to get USMCA across the finish line.” By Andy Eubank – Sep 19, 2019 Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Secretaries Unite to Urge Ratification of USMCA Facebook Twitter SHARE Ag Secretaries Unite to Urge Ratification of USMCA SHARE Previous articleVolatile Crude Oil Market Impacting Ag Commodity Prices and Best Manure Pit Safety on the HAT Thursday Morning EditionNext articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Farm Forecast for September 20, 2019 Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Ситуация со свободой прессы, впрочем, как и с правами человека, остается по-прежнему пугающей. Спустя два с половиной года после нашего последнего визита журналисты продолжают работать в военных условиях и повсеместной коррупции, что делает их работу катастрофически тяжелой», – сообщила международная организация по защите свободы информации «Репортеры без границ».Сегодня «Репортеры без границ» представляют отчет о расследовании ситуации со СМИ в Республиках Чечня и Дагестан. Представители организации исследовали эти два региона с 9 по 13 сентября 2011 года, с целью пообщаться с журналистами, представителями местных властей и правoзащитниками. Они сообщили о своих первых выводах 14 сентября в ходе пресс-конференции, проведенной в Москве совместно с сотрудниками ПЦ «Мемориал» (Приз Сахарова в 2009 году) .Чечня и Дагестан представляют собой две крайности кавказского конфликта: первая была свидетелем его зарождения, вторая сегодня находится в самом сердце военных действий. После двух войн Чеченская республика во многом реконструирована, однако ее жители и журналисты заплатили высокую цену за эту «стабилизацию»: результатом стало тотальное отсутствие плюрализма, нарушение прав человека и массовая коррупция, развитие культа личности главы республики и навязывание пуританской версии Ислама. Самоцензура беспредельно властвует в редакциях, уже пострадавших за время двух военных конфликтов. Она укреплена повсеместной безнаказанностью, что делает все более сложным получение информации о происходящем за великолепным фасадом, который с успехом возводится властями.Соседняя республика Дагестан парадоксальна. Нападения и убийства все продолжаются в условиях безнаказанности. Тем не менее, относительный плюрализм, не отделимый от социального многообразия, еще сохраняется. Но сегодня поддерживать его стало как никогда сложно в связи с экономическими трудностями и попытками манипуляций во многих сферах. Конкретные действия со стороны локальных и федеральных властей с целью положить конец безнаказанности при нападении на журналистов могли бы стать первым необходимым шагом, чтобы ослабить тиски запугивания и самоцензуры в регионе. Власти должны перестать считать, что независимая прессa – криминальна и обязательно связанa с неофициальными вооруженными силами.«Будучи далеко от восхваляемой Москвой «нормализации», Северный Кавказ продолжает крутиться по неконтролируемой спирали, первоочередными жертвами которой являются гражданские лица» – делают вывод «Репортеры без границ». «СМИ играют ключевую роль в процессе выхода из этого порочного круга: они должны предоставить платформу многостороннего обсуждения мнений, ретранслировать беспокойства гражданского общества деятельностью властей, напоминать последним их прямую обязанность защищать население от насилия и коррупции… Настало время для властей наконец осознать, что свобода прессы является не частью проблемы, но его решением». (Фото: STR/AFP) Two Russian journalists persecuted for investigating police corruption News Читать доклад на русском“The world has just marked the fifth anniversary of Anna Politkovskaya’s murder, but the Russian Caucasus, which she specialized in covering, is nowadays a blind spot in the international media’s coverage,” said Reporters Without Borders, which today releases a report on the state of the media in Chechnya and Dagestan.“The media freedom situation in the Russian Caucasus, like that of human rights in general, is still very worrying,” the organization added. “Two and a half years after our last visit, journalists continue to be exposed to a climate of violence and corruption that makes their work very difficult.”Reporters Without Borders representatives visited Chechnya and Dagestan from 9 to 13 September, meeting with journalists, government officials and human rights activists. They presented their initial findings at a news conference in Moscow on 14 September, which was held jointly with the Russian human rights organization Memorial (winner of the 2009 Sakharov Prize).The situation in Chechnya and Dagestan could not be more dissimilar. The first saw the start of the Caucasian civil wars but now the focus of destabilization have moved to the second. After two civil wars, Chechnya is now largely rebuilt but its citizens and journalists are paying a high price for “stabilization” – a complete lack of pluralism, human rights violations, massive corruption, a personality cult and imposition of a puritan Islam. Self-censorship reigns within the traumatized and intimidated media, reinforced by a climate of complete impunity that makes it increasingly difficult to gather information about a hidden face that the authorities can easily deny.Neighbouring Dagestan offers a paradoxical picture. The current wave of violence does not spare its journalists, who are physically attacked and murdered with impunity. But it maintains a degree of pluralism that is an intrinsic part of the republic’s heterogeneity. Nonetheless, economic difficulties and attempts to manipulate the media have rendered this pluralism more fragile than ever.Concrete measures by the local and federal authorities to end impunity for those who attack and kill journalists would represent an important first step in loosening the vice of intimidation and self-censorship in the region. The independent media, where they exist, must stop being criminalized and identified with the armed insurrection.“Far from being ‘normalized,’ as Moscow claims, the Russian Caucasus continues its uncontrolled downward spiral in which civilians are the first victims,” Reporters Without Borders added. “The media have a key role to play by offering a platform for dialogue between all points of view, relaying civil society’s concerns to the authorities and reminding them of the urgent need to protect the population from violence and corruption. It is time the authorities realized that media freedom is part of the solution, not the problem.” News May 21, 2021 Find out more October 13, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “Terror, threats and corruption” – report of fact-finding visit to Russian Caucasuslast_img read more

Friday Football Preview: La Salle Heads to Arizona; Lancers Hope to Enter Bye Week on High Note

first_imgHome of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena 2 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it More Cool Stuff La Salle (3-1) at Notre Dame Prep (3-1) (Scottsale, Arizona)The Lancers continue to ride the back (and legs) of senior running back Amon Milliner.Milliner has over 500 yards and six TD’s in the last two weeks alone.La Salle is coming off an impressive and dominating win over Muir, 44-6, but the Lancers will be traveling to Scottsdale, Arizona, with little knowledge of what to expect.The Lancers players and staff will leave Burbank’s Bob Hope Airport Thursday afternoon and will land at Sky Harbor in Phoenix around 7 p.m.Friday night’s kickoff temperature in Scottsdale is expected to reach 97 degrees.Jake Caan will continue to manage the offense. The senior is averaging 140 yards per game, and has 7 TD passes as compared to two interceptions.Notre Dame Prep allows an average of 32 points per game, which could spell a big effort from Milliner and the offense.Harrison MacDonald is starting to come into his own at receiver and could be the x-factor in how far La Salle goes in the playoffs.The Lancers’ defense smothered Muir last week and will need to focus on Cole Fisher, who averages just under 140 yards per game.“We’re going out there to play a good team and we’re going to put a few more things into our game plan to make us more versatile,” La Salle coach Russell Gordon said. “We’ve been keeping the kids hydrated all week and are looking to go into our bye week as healthy as possible and just get better.

An earlier authorization, granted last July, expired on Dec. 31.“Due to the unprecedented surge in positive cases in Pasadena due to recent holiday travel and the Governing Board’s desire to keep students and staff as safe as possible, it is imperative to have the tools to ensure student learning continues if student education needs to be conducted from alternate locations or virtual learning environments,” the draft resolution reads.Once approved by the board, the resolution will authorize the superintendent, or his designee, to take “any and all actions necessary to ensure the continuation of public education and the health and safety of the students and staff at the district sites.”Such actions include relocating students and staff when necessary, continued daily student transportation, provision of alternative educational program options, directing staff to serve as disaster service workers, announcing a return to in-person instruction when conditions allow, and closing a school site to in-person instruction, or moving the district from in-person instruction to remote instruction as needed to respond to health conditions.The resolution will be in effect until one of three conditions are met: the governor decides to override any provision, the Los Angeles County Department of Health declares the coronavirus conditions no longer a public health threat, or the school year ends, which is on June 30.Officially, the Board of Education meeting begins at 12:30 p.m. but recesses into a closed session after roll call. The public meeting begins at 3 p.m. and will be via audio teleconferencing. It will be broadcast live on Charter Cable Channel 95, and on the internet at http://live.boardmeetings.info.Rebroadcasts are also aired several times during the week. For the schedule, call (800) 912-KLRN or visit www.KLRN.us.
