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. Unfortunately, there’s nothing the company can do about this uncertainty.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves Looking for new share ideas?Grab this FREE report now.Inside, you discover one FTSE company with a runaway snowball of profits.From 2015-2019…Revenues increased 38.6%.Its net income went up 19.7 times!Since 2012, revenues from regular users have almost DOUBLEDThe opportunity here really is astounding.In fact, one of its own board members recently snapped up 25,000 shares using their own money… So why sit on the side lines a minute longer?You could have the full details on this company right now.

Mayor’s Update: July 13

first_imgDear Friends,Tonight’s performance of “A Chorus Line” presented by the Ocean City Pops and Ocean City Theatre Company will be dedicated to the memory of Nancy Hughes. It’s fitting that the show will take place in the venue that bears her name: The Bill and Nancy Hughes Performing Arts Center. Nancy, who dedicated her life to the service of country and community, passed away earlier this year. But her memory and legacy will endure. I’m glad to see her recognized this way and hope that some of you can make it down to see the show.The 500 block of West Avenue will be closed to all traffic next week as crews work to elevate and pave the roadway in front of the Ocean City Primary School. Detours will be in effect. The work is part of the north end neighborhood drainage project, which continues to make good progress with separate crews working on Third Street, Fourth Street, Fifth Street and Sixth Street. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to complete this major project as quickly and efficiently as possible.City project managers and the contractor have spent the last couple evenings on the site of the Fourth Ward drainage project tracking the source of high-tide flooding along Haven Avenue. New check valves will be added to address the issue. The activation of pumping stations later this summer also will help.In a separate project, I have given permission to Cape May County to begin work at 6 a.m. Wednesday, July 18, at the intersection of 34th Street and Haven Avenue. Crews will be working on storm drain inlets, and the early start should allow the job to be complete by about 10 a.m.There are three more great shows on the Ocean City Music Pier this weekend. On Saturday, Imagination Movers perform a family-friendly, interactive rock concert. On Sunday, the Pier turns to a disco as the a tribute band joins the Ocean City Pops for “Classical Night Fever.” On Monday, the classic rock icons America play in the ongoing 2018 Summer Concert Series. Stop by the Music Pier Box Office or visit www.oceancityvacation.com/boxoffice to get tickets.Warm regards,Jay A. GillianMayor Mayor Jay Gillianlast_img read more

Artists advocate for reform

first_imgActivist-artists and avid supporters of immigration reform Julio Salgado and Steve Pavey contributed their work to La Fuerza’s “Education without Barriers” week April 9 at Saint Mary’s. The week explores the intersection of education and immigration reform. Both Salgado and Pavey use images to advance the cause of undocumented immigrants in the United States. 
”Art defines culture,” Salgado said. “We need to use art as a tool to fight the hate against us because this country is anti-immigrant. I want people to value education for everyone. My dream is to
 create a country that educates population doesn’t criminalize it.” As a self-identified undocumented immigrant, this issue touches Salgado personally, he said.  His work seeks to address the disenfranchisement felt by undocumented immigrants, Salgado said. Salgado said he initially was inspired by the civil disobedience displayed in Washington, D.C., when an undocumented student was arrested for refusing to leave the sit-in advocating passage of the Federal Dream Acts.   

”There are so many dreams of potentially fixing immigration reform, fixing it the right way, but there really is no right way,” Salgado said. “We must change the way we’re seen, change the way we exist. We never go deep into what it means to be an immigrant in this country. I use art to dignify myself because it’s hard to see images that are very negative about us.” One of his projects, “Undocumented Apparel,” is a social commentary on how people take advantage of Latin American immigrants, Salgado said. “We don’t have a say to form how we’re being portrayed in the media,” said Salgado.   The “artivist” and photographer Steve Pavey, also displayed his work as part of La Fuerza’s “Education, Not Deportation” art gallery in the Saint Mary’s Student Center Tuesday, April 9.

   Pavey said he hoped to empower youth to take ownership of the fight for immigration rights. “Undocumented youth need to be the leaders of this movement,” Pavey said. “I work for the undocumented youth, I let them lead.”

 Pavey, who has a PhD in applied cultural anthropology, said he admires Paolo Friere, a Brazilian educator who advocates participatory research.

 “[Friere] believes in the people themselves, the knowledge they own-if they can connect to that knowledge, they can become powerful,” Pavey said. “An immigrant worker in the field knows much more about themselves than I do.”

 Pavey has followed and chronicled stories of people like Marco Saavedra and Isabel Castillo, undocumented immigrants who protested against the injustice of their marginalization.

 “I am committed to using social scientific methods to facilitate social change and work for justice,” Pavey said. “The way to critique the structural evils in our political economy is to be with the least of us. I want to be a part of empowering their voices.”

I spend maybe about eight or 10 hours a week, something like that.“I’m reading all the time, trying to learn new things.
