What’s going on with the Rolls-Royce share price?

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Over the past 12 months, the Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price has essentially moved sideways. The stock has returned -1.5% since this time last year. By comparison, the FTSE All-Share Index has returned 22%.This is a bit of an unfair comparison because the pandemic has severely impacted Rolls-Royce. It suffered one of the most substantial drops in revenue and profitability of any large UK company. 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…It makes more sense to compare the performance of the Rolls-Royce share price to that of other pandemic-hit businesses such as IAG, easyJet and Tui. But even compared to these stocks, Rolls has underperformed.The three firms outlined above have returned 11%, 24%, and 47%, respectively, over the past 12 months. Tui has achieved this performance even though it’s been bailed out three times by the German government during this period.  Looking at these figures, I’ve been wondering, what’s going on with the Rolls-Royce share price? Improving outlook Rolls’ largest division is its aerospace business. This involves the sale and maintenance of engines for the civil aviation industry. The company gets paid based on the number of flying hours its machines rack up. Therefore, when the aviation industry was effectively grounded this time last year, group revenues plunged. Since then, the industry has started to recover. Air traffic around the world is currently around two-thirds of 2019 levels. As the outlook for the sector has improved, it’s had a positive impact on Rolls’ outlook. The company expects to be cash flow break-even in the second half of the year. This should draw a line under its pandemic losses. Unfortunately, it seems as if the market is sceptical the company can hit this target. That appears to be the primary reason why the Rolls-Royce share price has underperformed. It wouldn’t be the first time the company has missed targets. In the past, the group has repeatedly overpromised and underperformed. Therefore, I think the market doesn’t believe in management’s outlook. Is the Rolls-Royce share price a buy? I reckon this could be an opportunity for risk-tolerant investors. Despite its improving outlook, the stock still looks cheap. Although there’s always going to be the risk that the company will miss management’s growth targets. With that being the case, I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today as a speculative recovery play. However, I’m well aware this isn’t a risk-free investment. I think there’s a very high chance the company will underperform this year. If it does, the stock could continue to languish. That’s why I’d only buy a small speculative position for my portfolio. While I think the Rolls-Royce share price has recovery potential, the global travel and aviation industry outlook is incredibly uncertain.

If so click here. Probably history’s most pre-eminent Gosforthians, however, are the brace who successively captained, coached and heroically inspired the club in its first remarkable flowering. They are 40-cap Irish prop legend Ray McLoughlin, Connachtman and Newcastle Uni scientist who, once injured on the tour, became Carwyn James’s right hand and muse with the 1971 Lions, and businessman – beanpole from down the coast at Hartlepool, Jack Rowell, who would leave his beloved North-East for the South-West to become not only a Bath legend but also England’s supremo.One-off Jack was, in turn, capricious, unpredictable and touched with genius. Ray was a deep thinker, a scholar of the game, and sternest of disciplinarians; rugby was a serious business and he didn’t even like his teams to smile for the club photos. They explained: Ray was making them so successful, they just couldn’t help smiling. Happy days, eh?This article appeared in the April 2011 issue of Rugby World Magazine Their reign was brief but has there ever been a more doughty cup king than Gosforth?WHEN THE great and the good of North-East rugby gathered at Hexham Abbey last month to celebrate the life of the late Gosforth club eminence Colin White, the moving occasion stirred fond recollections not only of one of the region’s noblest sporting chieftains but also for a vanished, evocative era before big bucks, big crowds and big transfer stories dominated the English club game.In this month in which the 40th national club final is staged at Twickenham, many olde-tyme rugby folk wistfully yearn for that ‘golden age’ and those less frantic days of amiable, confraternal amateurism when Gosforth, briefly, carried all before them as a mighty force in the land.Gosforth today might be no more than a matey little rugby club enjoying a quiet life in the tight-knit Durham-Northumberland league, so unconsidered that any rugby devotee not yet into middle age would find it impossible to believe that not long ago Gosforth was England’s champion club, vibrantly awash with international players – one of whom was the steadfast four-square prop and forestry worker Colin White who, in 1978, lost three fingers in a chainsaw accident. He set off for hospital, then realised he had forgotten the fingers, so calmly turned the car around to collect them. They were sewn back on again and five years later he won his first cap, at 36 in England’s still-fabled 15-9 Twickenham win over New Zealand in 1983.The RFU only allowed the first knockout club competition in 1972; four years later came an inaugural sponsor – John Player tobacco – and, lo and behold, Gosforth were successive winners in its first two seasons, beating Rosslyn Park 23-14 in 1976 and, a year later, Waterloo by 27-11 to mark Gosforth’s centenary. Then in the 1981 final Gosforth, captained by White, lost to Leicester 22-15 and that, nationally at any rate, was that.It had been a short but heady reign. Just consider the gold-leaf names on Gosforth’s honours board… two imperishable back-row Lions of those immortal tours respectively of 1971 and 1974, Oxford’s triple-Blue Yorkie Peter Dixon, and all-time great and future England coach Roger Uttley, a Lancashire lad who studied at Northumberland teachers’ college. At their heels all through Gosforth’s glorious run was fellow England cap and indefatigable Geordie mudlark No 9 Malcolm Young.Scotland’s Richard Breakey was a Gosforth luminary, so was his compatriot, happy hooker Duncan Madsen; so too, later, England lock Steve Bainbridge. More than a few others in those crack Gosforth XVs deserved Test caps – the tireless flanker Dave Robinson for one, rock-like prop Andy Cutter for another, or those different but dashing wingers, mercurial Steve Gustard and bellicose David Carr.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALSlast_img read more

Wasps thrash Gloucester at Kingsholm

first_imgThursday Oct 29, 2009 Wasps thrash Gloucester at Kingsholm Gloucesters poor run of form continued this weekend as they got convincingly beaten 35-6 by Wasps in front of their home crowd at Kingsholm.Scrumhalf Joe Simpson and flyhalf Dave Walder combined to give centre Dominic Waldouck an easy try in the first half as he glided through the hapless Gloucester defenders.Wasps managed to hold off any attempt at a comeback by the home side as they picked up their bonus point after scoring three tries in the second half. Mark Van Gisbergen scored twice, with captain Serge Betsen also scoring under the posts.Gloucesters injured World Cup winner, Mike Tindall, says it was an embarrassing result.I felt embarrassed. We made too many individual errors and too many mistakes, he said.“I feel sorry for Brushy (Gloucester coach Bryan Redpath) because we made too many individual errors and mistakes.“Whenever we did something good, we then went and did something stupid to undo it. After such a good start to the season with the win over Bath, things just aren’t going right.“It’s not a lack of work or commitment, but we need to own up when we aren’t doing things well.

Sevens legend Waisale Serevi answers your questions

first_imgThursday Aug 11, 2011 Sevens legend Waisale Serevi answers your questions A few weeks back you were given the chance to submit questions for legend of the game Waisale Serevi via the RD Facebook Page . Three questions were picked and posed to the great man, so today you can hear his responses. Serevi, arguably one of the greatest Sevens players of all time, now lives in the US, after leaving Fiji post retirement. He and his family have started a new life, and along with his company, Serevi , are looking to make a difference in rugby not only over there, but back in the pacific islands too. His Island Kings project features a range of T-Shirts for Fiji, Tonga, and Samoa, with partial proceeds from sales going towards the teams and players, helping them out when competing in international tournaments. He is also involved in setting up rugby camps, with a team of coaches helping youth players. The Serevi Rugby Academy is another thing he’s involved in, which sees him link up with legendary New Zealand Sevens coach Gordon Tietjens. In the following video, the great man answered three questions, as submitted by RD Facebook fans. They not only got their questions answered, but will receive signed Island Kings T-Shirts. One of the questions in particular can be applied to any one of you, so if it were up to you, who would you love to see playing Sevens?

Two leading independent weeklies suspended for six months

first_imgNews Organisation RwandaAfrica RwandaAfrica RSF_en BBC Africa’s “disproportionate and dangerous” dismissal of a journalist Reports Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Reporters Without Borders “firmly condemns” the High Media Council’s decision to suspend two independent Rwandan newspapers, Umuseso and Umuvugizi, for six months. Announced yesterday by the council’s executive secretary, Patrice Mulama, the suspension comes at a time of tension between the government and independent media and will prevent the two newspapers from covering the presidential election, now just five months away.“This decision clearly aims to gag Rwanda’s main sources of independent news in the run-up to the August 2010 presidential election,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It suppresses all critical journalism and deprives Rwandans of an alternative to the state newspapers. The High Media Council, which takes its orders from the highest level of government, is ensuring that the election campaign will be tightly controlled and monolithic.”The High Media Council has accused the two weeklies of “inciting insubordination in the army and police regarding orders from superiors,” publishing “information that endangers public order,” rumour mongering, defamation and invasion of privacy.A Kigali lawyer said the suspension of the two weeklies under article 83 of the media law was illegal because the council can only order a newspaper’s temporary or permanent closure if it has previously found it guilty of the same offence, which is not the case with either of the two publications. They have decided to appeal.Rwanda’s independent newspapers have been the target of direct criticism from government officials in the past few months, including President Paul Kagame, who recently told parliament that “newspapers that spread rumours will be closed.” The publisher, editor and one of the reporters of another newspaper were given jail sentences in February. See the previous release .Rwanda was ranked 157th out of 175 countries in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. This was the fourth lowest ranking in Africa – after Eritrea, Somalia and Equatorial Guinea. President Kagame has been on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Predators of Press Freedom” for several years.

Why the Broncos Deserve Su’a Cravens

first_img Brad James  Then-Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan put great trust in him, making him a starter. Then, one day, Kennison decided his heart wasn’t in the game. He retired, only to resurface with the bitter rival Kansas City Chiefs. He then played seven years in KC, amassing 5,230 receiving yards and 25 TD grabs.Yes, many Broncos fans were angry with him (I was among them) and for good reason. Thus, I can understand why Washington Redskins fans are angry with Cravens.Unlike the Kennison era, however, Cravens must absorb the Twitter vitriol he receives. Then again, NFL players are compensated handsomely for their troubles, so they might as well get a thick skin with their riches!I don’t understand why NFL players, or other athletes for that matter, give up on certain teams only to be “miraculously” galvanized when they are in a new environment.That’s just how the NFL works. I have covered sports for more than 20 years now and it’s how they go.If history is to repeat itself, you’ll have Cravens, who is a hybrid outside linebacker/strong safety ball out every week. The chip on the shoulder doesn’t have to be real, as long as it’s real to Cravens.The Broncos have the good fortune of having a player who will give them everything he has. In an offseason wherein GM John Elway has been lambasted by all, he procured a solid steal.A 5th rounder is more than worth it for Cravens if he displays what he did early in his career.The film is out there, you can see it yourselves but the Broncos got a winner and for a better price than the Dairy Queen 5 Buck Lunch.Incidentally, if I have one regret at Mid-Utah Radio, it’s that the two really good Dairy Queens, Beaver and Santaquin, require a special trip and you have to be in the area to make it worth your while.Nevertheless, like Cravens will prove to be for the Broncos, Dairy Queen is worth it! FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail*This is yet another Predominantly Orange offering, wherein I go back in Broncos history to explain why the Broncos “deserve” Su’a Cravens.I always succeed in taking a new spin on things and I’ll prove why the Broncos deserve strong safety Su’a Cravens.Almost 17 years ago to the date, April 5, 2001, the Broncos signed speedy wide receiver Eddie Kennison. The former Rams, Saints and Bears receiver/kick returner was valuable in many roles.

Landlords aim to beat tax rises

first_imgHome » News » Regulation & Law » Landlords aim to beat tax rises Landlords aim to beat tax rises16th March 20160595 Views A growing number of property investors are choosing to acquire buy-to-let homes through corporate vehicles to get around paying an extra 3 per cent above existing stamp duty rates on second homes, mortgage brokers report.There has been a surge in demand for buy-to-let properties in recent months from investor landlords keen to beat the 1st April deadline for the stamp duty surcharge. But to avoid the hit, it has been reported that a growing number of landlords are setting up company structures to manage their rental properties.Mortgages for Business report that it has seen the proportion of applications acquiring property within a corporate vehicle surge from 18 per cent to more than 50 per cent in the past six months.Forming company structures to manage their rental properties will also enable many landlords to continue to deduct mortgage interest from their tax bill as it will be viewed as a business expense. This will allow higher rate taxpayers to more than halve their tax bill because they will pay corporation tax, rather than income tax, which will be 19 per cent from 2017, and will fall to 18 per cent by 2020. Similarly, the ability to take income flexibly in the form of dividends will be more attractive to landlords who might otherwise lose their personal allowance.David Hollingworth, Director of mortgage broker London & Country, said, “Increasingly, owning a buy-to-let property through a limited company rather than in your own name will start to look like a more standard option to people.”Of course, incorporation of an existing property letting business may not be practicable in many cases, but it does highlight that there are potential loopholes that may appeal to some shrewd landlords.Although the stamp duty surcharge is widely expected to disrupt the buy-to-let market, at least in the short-term, the sector will recover, according to Nick Leeming (left), Chairman at Jackson-Stops & Staff.Attractive rental returns and house price growth means that capital returns are still strong and despite the introduction of the extra tax, Leeming believes that bricks and mortar will continue to be viewed as a safe investment, and that in the end, the losers will be the tenants who have to cover their landlord’s increased tax costs through their rent.He commented, “When you do the sums, and look at the direction of house prices, placing money in bricks and mortar is still by far the best investment vehicle. If property prices continue on their current trajectory, within a year or less of buying their investment property the vast majority of landlords would have earned back all the money given through stamp duty, even with the new 3 per cent surcharge, by doing nothing at all – just sitting back and watching the price of their home increase. Therefore the idea that the stamp duty tax will act as a deterrent is a fiction, as for most landlords it won’t amount to a significant figure.“In fact, the only losers will be tenants as landlords are likely to pass on any additional costs they might not want to shoulder to their tenants by increasing rents.”acquiring buy-to-let homes property investors beat tax rises stamp duty rates on second homes 2016-03-16The Negotiator Related articles Letting agent fined £11,500 over unlicenced rent-to-rent HMO3rd May 2021 BREAKING: Evictions paperwork must now include ‘breathing space’ scheme details30th April 2021 Lawyer leading RICS governance probe asks members to help with evidence30th April 2021What’s your opinion?
