Peter Stephens | Tuesday, 24th March, 2020 | More on: AZN NWG The FTSE 100’s 32% crash since the start of the year could continue in the coming weeks. The situation regarding coronavirus is impossible to accurately predict. That may lead to investors demanding even wider margins of safety from large-cap shares.However, valuations now suggest there could be opportunities for long-term investors. Many FTSE 100 stocks offer wide margins of safety and the potential for improving returns in the coming years.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…As such, now could be the right time to buy these two stocks as part of a diverse ISA portfolio, and hold them for the long run.AstraZenecaAstraZeneca’s (LSE: AZN) defensive characteristics have been evident in recent weeks. Its shares are down by 10% in 2020, which is less than a third of the FTSE 100’s decline.The company is less reliant on the world economy’s performance for its sales. But disruption to global supply chains and weak economic performance may have a negative impact on the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical giant’s performance in the near term.However, AstraZeneca’s recent updates have shown it’s making headway in delivering improving financial performance. For example, its new medicines recorded sales growth of 62% last year. Since they now make up 42% of its total product sales, they’re likely to have a significant impact on its future financial performance.The stock’s recent decline means that it appears to offer relatively good value for money. It’s forecast to post a rise in its bottom line of 27% next year. Trading on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 21. And having a defensive business model means that now could be the right time to buy a slice of AstraZeneca and hold those shares for the long run.RBSWhile AstraZeneca offers defensive characteristics, other FTSE 100 stocks, such as RBS (LSE: RBS), have fallen by a much greater amount than the index in recent weeks. The bank’s share price is down by 52% since the start of the year, as investors have reacted to a challenging outlook for the UK economy.Furthermore, the banking sector may find the task of generating improving returns more difficult in a low interest rate environment. With interest rates at historic lows and monetary policy likely to remain accommodative over the medium term, the financial prospects for the banking industry could prove to be challenging.However, RBS now trades on a P/E ratio of around 6. This suggests investors have priced in the potential difficulties it may face, and that it now offers a wide margin of safety.Certainly, it may experience further declines in the short run. But, with its recent results showing an improving operational performance from the bank, now could be a buying opportunity. That’s the case for long-term investors who can accept short-term volatility for high-potential rewards in the coming years.

Rolls-Royce shares: should I buy?

first_img Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Enter Your Email Address Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) shares have had a lot of attention lately, but the stock has been falling. So if it has taken a hit, is now a buying opportunity? I think so and I’d buy Rolls-Royce shares in my portfolio. Civil AerospaceI can’t deny that Roll-Royce’s main business, the Civil Aerospace division has been severely hit by the coronavirus pandemic. I think what makes it worse is that revenue from this business accounts for over 50% of the company’s total earnings.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…But what does the Civil Aerospace division do? In a nutshell, it manufactures and services engines for the airline industry. So it’s no surprise that it has been hit by the pandemic. Global restrictions have meant little travel travel, thereby having a knock-on effect on the need for Rolls-Royce’s services.Now that there’s a mass vaccination programme under way, I expect air travel to start recovering slowly. I reckon there’s pent-up demand for people to holiday abroad. This in turn should start having a positive impact on Rolls-Royce shares.In its December trading update, Rolls-Royce reported that the Civil Aerospace business is gradually recovering. The number of large engine flying hours at the time was 42% of 2019’s level.While no one can predict the shape and timing of the recovery in air traffic, Rolls-Royce expects travel to pick up in the second half of 2021. By this time, I’d expect vaccines to have been rolled out a significant portion of the UK and global populationLiquidityDuring the coronavirus crisis, Rolls-Royce improved its liquidity position. It raised money from a rights issue, and secured additional loans, as well as drawing on its existing cash reserves.Rolls-Royce took further measures by implementing cost-cutting measures and disposing of certain assets. To me, these steps have not only made the firm leaner but have also strengthened the balance sheet.According to its latest update, Rolls-Royce has access to £9bn in liquidity. It forecasts £2bn in cash outflow for 2021. For now, I reckon it can weather the storm and I’d buy the shares.RisksI think the biggest risk right now facing Rolls-Royce share is that no one knows how long this pandemic and restrictions will persist for. If this crisis drags on, this may place a strain on the business and liquidity reserves.Furthermore, if air travel doesn’t pick up in the second half of 2021 then Rolls-Royce may have to raise further capital. Another round of financing may not be well received by investors and could impact the share price.Defence businessClearly, I don’t think all is lost with Roll-Royce shares. I believe investors have become fixated on the company’s Civil Aerospace business and have forgotten that it has other divisions as well. In fact, I’d like to highlight its Defence business, which accounts for 20% of earnings.What I like about Rolls-Royce shares is that the defence business throughout the pandemic has been resilient. The company has defence contracts with the UK and US governments. It also has a strong order book and 2021 forecast sales are well covered.For now, I’m happy with the stable revenue visibility from this division.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

Rugby World Cup 2011: Australia’s Coach – Robbie Deans

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS More Super titles followed in 2002, 2005 and 2006, and between 2004 and 2007 they won a record 26 straight games at home. His reign ended on a high in 2008, after he’d got the Wallabies job, as his Crusaders beat the Waratahs in the final to make it seven titles.Deans’s talent was recognised by the NZRU in 2001 when he was appointed assistant to All Blacks coach John Mitchell. The two worked together until the end of the 2003 World Cup, winning 22 of 27 Tests. Many thought Deans should have been the boss, and his fans were even more stunned when he wasn’t given the top job after the All Blacks’ RWC 2007 exit.As New Zealand stuck with Graham Henry, Australia signed Deans on a four-year contract. Mark Hammett, his assistant at the Crusaders, said: “We were flabbergasted that he didn’t get the All Blacks job. The Wallabies are bloody lucky. He has a philosophy which he always lives by, which is you do whatever is best for the team. He questions how he can improve, intensely and often. He always asks whether it’s good for the team. If it is, do it. If it isn’t, don’t. It’s that simple.”Results were important in Deans’s first year in charge, but more critical was the need to blood new Wallabies in time for this year’s World Cup. Key players had retired and there was a rebuilding job to do.By the end of 2009, Deans had capped 16 new players, but the overhaul of the squad hasn’t been painless. They lost four consecutive games during the 2009 Tri-Nations and only managed two wins out of six in last year’s tournament, but Wallaby spirits have been raised by last autumn’s 26-24 victory over New Zealand and the 59-16 walloping of France.Now Deans faces the biggest challenge of all – leading Australia at a World Cup in his homeland. He’s one of the most admired and successful coaches in world rugby, so will his side be cracking open the bubbly on 23 October? Be in no doubt, the Aussies will delight in gloating over the NZRU if Deans brings the cup ‘home’ to Sydney.This article appeared in Part 1 of our Rugby World Cup Supplement.To get a copy of the supplement contact [email protected] CHRISTCHURCH, NEW ZEALAND – AUGUST 07: Coach of the Australian Wallabies Robbie Deans looks on during the 2010 Tri-Nations Bledisloe Cup match between the Australian Wallabies and the New Zealand All Blacks at AMI Stadium on August 7, 2010 in Christchurch, New Zealand. (Photo by Martin Hunter/Getty Images) Robert Maxwell DeansAge 51 (4 September 1959)Birthplace Cheviot, N CanterburyCoaching history Canterbury, Crusaders, New Zealand (asst)Record as Australia coach (June 2008-present)P43 W24 L18 D1Kiwi Robbie Deans is hoping to shatter his countrymen’s World Cup dreams by guiding a Wallaby side he’s packed with thrilling young talent to the trophyRobbie Deans is the first non-Australian to coach the Wallabies, but his impressive record made it fitting for the national union to go out on a limb for him.The New Zealander is the most successful coach in Super Rugby history, having won 74% of his 120 matches in charge of the Crusaders and lifted the Super Rugby title seven times. As former Crusaders captain-turned-coach Todd Blackadder, says: “He has a thirst for excellence, and that rubs off on everyone around him. He’s a winner by heart and has a proven record of winning after turning failure around, by learning from it.”That ability to learn from defeat was most apparent after the Crusaders finished tenth in the 2001 Super 12. He realised some of his players were burnt out, so he examined how other sports trained their athletes and then tailored programmes to fit each individual. In 2002 the Crusaders became the only side in Super Rugby history to win every match. Job done.Deans also likes to work with a good team of coaches. “You must have good people around you and you have to give them licence to bring what they have,” he says. “You give yourself a much better chance if you have an inclusive approach, if you ask more than you tell. If you’re just telling all the time, you’re driving people into decline or submission and you get less from them when it matters.”Rugby is truly in his blood as his great uncle Bob was one of the ‘original’ All Blacks who toured Britain in 1905. Robbie and his younger brother Bruce followed in his footsteps. A full-back or fly-half, Deans played 146 games in 12 seasons for Canterbury, making him the fourth most-capped player in the team’s history, and racked up 1,641 points – more than any other Canterbury player, including Andrew Mehrtens and Dan Carter.He won five New Zealand caps, his Test debut coming at full-back against Scotland in 1983. The family connection with the All Blacks is enhanced by wife Penny, whose brother is the former chairman of the New Zealand Rugby Union and21-time All Black, Jock Hobbs.Deans found even greater success as a coach. He guided Canterbury to the 1997 NPC title in his first season and became team manager for the Crusaders, who were coached by Wayne Smith. They won the Super 12 in 1998, 1999 and again in 2000, by which time Deans had taken over as coach.

New York City ‘Who’s the biggest slumlord?’

first_imgA multinational crowd of protesters united for a Sept. 21 noon rally against the New York City Housing Authority at its downtown Manhattan office. Public housing tenants demonstrated in solidarity alongside workers from District Council 37, the city’s largest municipal public employee union, with at least seven tenant groups present.Shared demands included no privatization of NYCHA, no luxury housing on public land, stop outsourcing housing jobs and hire 1,000 more NYCHA workers. An activist with the group Rise Up for Renter Power led chants demanding “Hands off public housing!”Speakers on the mike denounced the city’s neglect of housing projects, their dire underfunding, and the projected layoffs of city workers who do maintenance and keep up the building units. The Trump administration and congressional plans for drastic cuts to public housing were exposed.When those on the mike asked: “Who’s New York City’s greatest slumlord?” the crowd quickly shouted: “NYCHA!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Teachers and staff organize in New York City during Covid-19

Potential state cuts to CUNY funding and the possibility of a “dangerous, premature return to in-person instruction” were also raised.“The members of the PSC refuse to normalize cuts and layoffs at CUNY. And we will not allow the University administration to put the lives of our members and students at risk by returning to campus before it is safe,” said Barbara Bowen, president of the PSC. “That’s why we’re demonstrating in the communities where our students live.”The PSC is also projecting another, more militant event at the end of August shortly before the fall semester starts. The Professional Staff Congress, the American Federation of Teachers union  representing 30,000 faculty and staff at the City University of New York, held four simultaneous car and bike caravans July 18, plus a Zoom meeting with nearly 700 participants. The caravans took place in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens and Staten Island, directed at CUNY facilities in those boroughs.Teachers and staff caravanned for funding and health care throughout NYC boroughs, July 18.

Commentary – Active forces decide political struggles − battling #45

first_imgBulletin: After this article was written, on Nov. 23 pressure from business executives forced the administration to cooperate with the transition to Biden/Harris. #45, however, has yet to concede the election and continues filing suit to reverse vote counts.If the political struggle were determined simply by adding up potential forces, #45 would be meeting now with Joe Biden, and the two would be preparing the next capitalist administration of the U.S. government. Celebrations in Atlanta’s streets over Trump’s defeat, Nov. 7.Have no illusions. Both Republicans and Democrats share a common imperialist foreign policy. They both defend the interests of Wall Street. They both feed the Pentagon. For more than the past century, the two big political parties, despite bitter competition to get control of a two-trillion-dollar budget, have cooperated in the transition. This year Biden can’t even get his hands on government funds to prepare to take office.Judging by statements of CEOs and former government officials, the ruling class backs Biden. Each day another Republican politician or two goes on record of advising #45 to concede, to cooperate with the transition team. Each day, another European imperialist head of state calls Biden to congratulate him. If you believed that political struggles or class struggles — or for that matter, wars — were decided by counting the number of boots on each side, you might conclude that this battle is over. Yet as of Nov. 23, no such transition meetings are taking place. The grotesque Rudy Giuliani sues another state; #45 refuses to give in. It raises the following questions for the working class — considered in its broadest definition — employed, unemployed, gig and permanent, youth and retired, and including all nationalities, genders and people with special oppressions: Should the working class get involved in this struggle and how?The workers have a sideThe answer should be obvious. Allowing #45 to overthrow the elections would be a blow to democratic rights, a blow to the workers and a surrender to his attack on the voting rights of workers, especially of the Black community. Have no illusions. Big money, big media and decades of anti-socialist indoctrination determine U.S. elections. Neither major party represents the working class. But we can’t let the Trumpites throw votes from Black and other people of color in the trash can.The working class should intervene and has the opportunity to do so as an active force. It should make its own demands, not simply as an appendage to the Biden/Harris administration and its ruling class backers.Voters rejected #45 by a lead of nearly 7 million votes. Judging by the cheers on Nov. 7 when the media opted for Biden/Harris, millions of people felt great. More quotes from those celebrating reflected relief at rejecting Trump than elation at electing Biden. The voters said no to #45, despite the Republican effort to suppress Black and — except in Florida with a large number of right-wing Cubans and Venezuelans — Latinx voters. In the states Biden flipped — Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin — a high turnout in the big cities with large Black populations — Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Detroit and Milwaukee — made the difference. Thus, despite the distortion of the undemocratic Electoral College that weighs the vote toward rural areas and away from cities, the Democrats also won in that undemocratic arena, by 306 to 232. DetroitNow the desperate loser is trying to overturn votes by claiming — without evidence − electoral fraud in largely Black cities like Detroit and Philadelphia. He’s trying to reverse — that is, steal — the election, and suppressing Black voters — suppression that has a long history in the U.S. — is his tactic.So far, nearly all the court cases have gone against #45. His legal representative, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, keeps filing new lawsuits.Active forces countIf Wall Street, the establishment and the courts have decided for Biden, you might conclude that workers and progressive forces no longer need to act. But then you would be ignoring an important truth: In a crisis, it’s active forces, social forces in motion, that determine political struggles and class struggles. Even if #45 fails in his grotesque attempt to overturn the election, his stubborn repetition of his Big Lie has already mobilized his reactionary base. Tens of thousands of them took the streets of Washington, D.C., on Nov. 14. They will still be around after Jan. 20.There are other millions, however — consider those who cheered on Nov. 7 — who it’s possible to mobilize to come out again. This time they can actively counter #45 and his followers. They can show the reactionaries what they’re up against. And as they do this, the workers can make their own demands on Biden.It’s obvious such demands are needed. Already, it seems that the Democratic leaders are yielding to pressure from the Republican resistance in the Senate. A report in the Nov. 22 New York Times says, “Advisers to President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr. are pushing for Democratic leaders in Congress to reach a quick stimulus deal with Senate Republicans, even if it falls short of the larger package Democrats have been seeking.” That’s early notice of a rotten compromise with the Republicans. A massive mobilization can stop this.  Such a mobilization can stop the Democratic leadership from cutting down the left wing of their own party. The center-right leaders have already blamed the leftists for “down-ticket” losses, that is, where those running for lesser offices fared worse than Biden/Harris. That argument contradicts the success of the furthest left Democratic representatives, for example, the women in “the Squad,” who all won reelection, most by large majorities. These candidates raised issues the working class is concerned about, like health care and the climate crisis and fighting racism, and aroused enthusiastic support.It was one of the Squad, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, who with Rep. Debbie Dingell led the mobilization of people in her Michigan district against the Trumpites’ attempt to subvert the vote in that state. It’s a beginning of what can be done on a national level. Stop #45’s fight to stay in office. Don’t even let him leave with his head up.
