Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. After rallying fairly substantially since its rights issue, the Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) share price has fallen almost 30% from early December. Although there are many reasons for the decline, here is why I think the Rolls-Royce share price fell and what I would do given the decline. Why I think the Rolls-Royce share price declinedRolls-Royce recently gave a downbeat cash flow guidance. In late January, management released a trading update projecting worse-than-expected free cash outflows of around £2bn for 2021 as the recovery in the long distance flight market remains weak. In particular, management expects this year’s flying hours for wide body aircraft to hover around 55% of pre-pandemic 2019 levels versus the previous assumption of a rebound to 70% of 2019 levels. If the total flying hours for wide body aircraft remain weak, I think some investors will assume that the company will have a difficult time in achieving its 2022 free cash flow target of at least £750m too. If Rolls-Royce doesn’t achieve that target, the company won’t be as attractive in terms of valuation. 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…Also, the Covid-19 variants have become more of a problem recently, and some of the variants, such as a strain in South Africa, are less susceptible to vaccines. Because those variants will spread, the pandemic could potentially last longer given the lower effectiveness of many vaccines. If the pandemic lasts longer than expected, the recovery in the long distance flight market could take longer than expected too. What I’d doGiven everything that’s happened to the Rolls-Royce share price, I’d hold off on buying the stock. Although the company undoubtedly faces headwinds in slow recovery and the Covid-19 variants, I think management did the share issuance last year precisely for events such as this where the rebound might take longer than expected. As a result of management’s fundraising last year, Rolls-Royce has a substantial amount of liquidity that gives it some breathing room for an eventual recovery. As of the end of 2020, the company had approximately £9bn in liquidity. Given the vaccines, I think the long distance market will recover eventually. With all the cost cuts management has done, I think the stock has upside as a result.I’d also hold the stock because I think the company will successfully go ‘green’. In addition to investing more in its power systems division, which is working on some green technologies, Rolls-Royce has potential to go green in terms of making electric plane engines. If Rolls-Royce leads in that sector and management does well, I think the company could not only grow its sales, but also potentially grow earnings as well. The electric plane market could be a huge growth market in the future as battery technology improves and nations do more to lower their emissions.According to Morgan Stanley, the electric air mobility market could amount to $1.5trn by 2040. In terms of electric engines, Rolls-Royce is among the current leaders. According to the company, in September of last year, Rolls-Royce completed the testing of a technology that could power the fastest all-electric plane in the world. center_img Jay Yao | Friday, 5th February, 2021 | More on: RR Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: BAE Systems Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!

Canon Carl Gerdau. It was an honor to work as his Assistant for Ministry in the Diocese of Chicago. I always knew where he stood and what he needed from me. He was a great encourager for those of us who were priested and serving in a diocese struggling with women’s ordination in the early years. I will miss his annual phone calls on New Year’s Day, which he used to catch up with those whom he had mentored over the years. An extraordinary man with a heart of gold. He will be sorely missed.

Carlson Gerdau, who served for a decade as canon to the presiding bishop under the Most Rev. Frank Griswold and the Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori, died May 27 at age 84.Gerdau’s work for Griswold dated to 1988, when Griswold as bishop of the Diocese of Chicago hired Gerdau as the diocese’s canon to the ordinary and director for ministry, deployment and communication. When Griswold was installed as presiding bishop in 1998, Gerdau joined him in New York.After Jefferts Schori took over as presiding bishop in 2006, she asked him to stay on for the transition. Gerdau retired a year later.The Rev. Carlson Gerdau is honored by the Executive Council in 2007 at his retirement. Photo: Episcopal News Service“You never know what’s to be ahead of you, but it’s been a wonderful journey,” Gerdau told the Episcopal Church’s Executive Council in 2007 on his retirement.Griswold will deliver the sermon May 31 at Gerdau’s funeral service (details below). “He cared deeply about the church and her institutions,” Griswold says in a copy of the sermon provided to the Episcopal News Service in advance.In the draft sermon, Griswold compares Gerdau to the biblical Elizabeth, who reassures and encourages Mary after Jesus’ mother is visited by the angel Gabriel.“I think of Carl as a similar minister of encouragement, who has helped countless men and women and young people, and certainly me as well, to be their best selves and sing their own songs,” Griswold says.Fond memories of Gerdau have been pouring in from across the Episcopal Church since news of his death was received over the weekend.“Carl was one of God’s enduring gifts, filled with surprises, and grounded on the Rock of Ages,” Jefferts Schori said in an email to the ENS. “His gruff manner shielded a heart of gold, and he was always thinking strategically about how better to love others. Like Jesus, he is reputed to have shown up more than once at a friend’s door, saying ‘I’m staying here tonight.’ And like Jesus, he remains in the hearts of all who knew him. Rest from your labors, dear friend.”The Rev. Shawn Schreiner, former rector of Grace Episcopal Church in Oak Park, Illinois, described him as a “gentle giant” who helped her get her first job in the Chicago area. Her tribute to him on Facebook also noted his sense of humor, as well as their differences in height.“I remember him telling me to call him once a month about (job openings). If I called more often I would be pestering him and if I called less frequently he would forget about me,” she wrote. “I also remember him reminding me that we would pass the peace by me standing on a pew or chair. That always made him smile.”The Executive Council passed a resolution at the time of his retirement honoring him for his “considerable influence, often gentle, on every aspect of the church’s governmental, legislative and diplomatic life.”The resolution further described him as a man “whose sometimes gruff exterior inadequately conceals a soul of extraordinary kindness, wisdom and humor, a soul deeply in love with the Church his entire life, and wide enough to embrace everyone from those in high places to those in need, unknown, unacknowledged and known only to him and them.”Gerdau was born Feb. 22, 1933, to the late Kathryn Schaefer Gerdau and Carl Gerdau of New York City. “He found his vocation in the church in 1949 by serving as a counselor to the Brantwood Camp in Peterborough, New Hampshire,” a family obituary says.He graduated from General Theological Seminary in 1959 and was ordained to the diaconate and the priesthood the same year. Gerdau served for 20 years as vicar and rector at several churches in Michigan until he was appointed archdeacon of the Diocese of Missouri in 1979.In 1986, Gerdau spent a year on sabbatical studying Spanish in Guatemala and theology at the University of Chicago. He then served from 1987 to 1988 as interim rector at St. Gregory’s Episcopal Church in Deerfield, Illinois, before joining Griswold’s staff at the Diocese of Chicago.The Rev. Carlson Gerdau.

He also served on the boards of the Episcopal Church Pension Fund, Bexley Hall Seminary, Bexley Seabury Seminary Foundation, Auburn Seminary, the Church Historical Society and Friends of Canterbury Cathedral in the United States.He is survived by four nieces and their children.A funeral is scheduled for 11 a.m. May 31 at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Manhattan, his family’s church.

Organized crime’s hand seen in border town radio station owner’s murder

first_img Reporter killed in ambush after police protection withdrawn February 7, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Organized crime’s hand seen in border town radio station owner’s murder Latin America’s community radio – a key service but vulnerable Brazilian journalist murdered at home in Paraguay Reporters Without Borders hopes for quick results from the police investigation into yesterday evening’s murder of local radio station owner and manager Marcelino Vázquez in Pedro Juan Caballero, the capital of Amambay, an eastern department that borders Brazil.A marijuana-growing region with a reputation for being dangerous, Amambay is also a leading hub in the trafficking of so-called hard drugs to the Southern Cone countries. Its journalists are constantly exposed to threats, as are their Brazilian colleagues on the other side of the border.Reporters Without Borders devoted a fact-finding visit and report to this subject in 2011.“Organized crime was probably behind this murder, especially as the method bears its hallmarks,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Quick results are needed from the investigation, which must look for a link to the victim’s work and must not yield to pressure or obstruction in region where the drug cartels unfortunately exercise a great deal of influence over the local authorities.“This murder recalls the 1991 murder of Radio Mburucuyá manager Santiago Leguizamón, which is still unpunished.”Vázquez was slain at around 7 p.m. yesterday as was leaving Sin Fronteras 98.5 FM, of which he was the owner, to go to a nearby discotheque that he also owned. He was intercepted by two men on a motorcycle, one of whom got down and shot him several times with a 38 mm revolver. One of his sons came out of the discotheque and saw the two killers as they left on the motorcycle.Sin Fronteras FM was mainly a music station but it also carried news and opinion programmes that were ready to broach any subject. Vázquez almost certainly paid the price for this audacity.President Fernando Lugo’s removal in a parliamentary “coup” last June has had a negative impact on freedom of information in Paraguay, which fell 11 places in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Why is the Gap for Risk Between First-Time and Repeat Homebuyers Widening?

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Tagged with: AEI’s International Center on Housing Risk Agency First-Time Buyer Risk Risk of Default Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago December 14, 2015 1,727 Views Why is the Gap for Risk Between First-Time and Repeat Homebuyers Widening? The gap between Agency indices measuring risk of default for first-time homebuyers compared to repeat buyers is widening, according to data released by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI)’s International Center on Housing Risk on Monday.The AEI’s Agency First-Time Buyer Mortgage Risk Index (FBMRI), which estimates the share of first-time buyer mortgages that would default if the U.S. economy experienced economic stress or a downturn similar to conditions in 2007 and 2008, found that the Agency FBMRI for first-time buyers is currently 6 percentage points higher than the risk index for repeat homebuyers and the gap has been growing.What is the reason for the widening gap? According to AEI, it is largely driven by risk layering. As of the end of November 2015, about 70 percent of first-time buyer mortgages had a combined loan-to-value ratio of higher than 95 percent. According to AEI, about 97 percent of those first-time buyers had a 30-year term mortgage.“Given the combination of little money down and slow amortization, these buyers will have very little home equity for a number of years unless their house appreciates substantially,” AEI stated in the report.In November 2015, the down payment for a median first-time homebuyer with an agency mortgage was only 3 percent, which calculates to about $7,200. That group also had a median FICO score of 706, which is 7 points lower than the national average of all individuals in the U.S. with a score, which was 713. For first-time buyers with FHA loans in November, the median FICO score was only 676—suggesting that mortgage credit access for first-time buyers may not be as tight as some news cycles have been suggesting.“The typical first-time buyer these days puts little money down and has a credit profile that is far from stellar,” said Stephen Oliner, codirector of AEI’s International Center on Housing Risk. “Those who assert that credit is tight are ignoring the facts.”According to AEI, About one-fifth of first-time buyers had a FICO score below 660 (the traditional definition of subprime mortgages), and more than one-quarter of them had total DTI ratios of higher than 43 percent, which is the limit set by the government’s qualified mortgage rule.

New boundary conditions for the West Antarctic ice sheet: subglacial topography beneath Pine Island Glacier

first_imgPredictions about future changes in the Amundsen Sea sector of the West Antarctic ice sheet (WAIS) have been hampered by poorly known subglacial topography. Extensive airborne survey has allowed us to derive improved subglacial topography for the Pine Island Glacier basin. The trunk of this glacier lies in a narrow, 250-km long, 500-m deep sub-glacial trough, suggesting a long-lived and constrained ice stream. Two tributaries lie in similar troughs, others lie in less defined, shallower troughs. The lower basin of the glacier is surrounded by bedrock, which, after deglaciation and isostatic rebound, could rise above sea level. This feature would impede ice-sheet collapse initiated near the grounding line of this glacier, and prevent its progress into the deepest portions of WAIS. The inland-slope of the bed beneath the trunk of the glacier, however, confirms potential instability of the lower basin, containing sufficient ice to raise global sea by ∼24 cm.last_img read more

Sports League’s Planning For Coronavirus

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailprimeimages/iStock(NEW YORK) – Novel coronavirus, officially known as COVID-19, is sweeping around the world with new cases popping up daily in the US and not even sports are immune with league’s across the country and world taking steps to stem the outbreak. While no player or coach in the US is known to have Coronavirus, the MLB, NBA and NHL have announced or have internal plans to mitigate the spread of the virus with the NHL going the farthest with options to postpone, cancel, or play games in empty arenas, deputy NHL commissioner Bill Daly told ESPN. No NHL players have attracted the virus, but they did feel the effects last month. Most players’ sticks are made in China and those factories closed, but Daly told ESPN that issue has now been solved. The NBA hasn’t announced any plans for games, but in a memo obtained by ESPN, the league said players should fist bump instead of high five fans and avoid taking pens to sign balls and jersey’s in the short term. The league is also planning on limiting the size or even possibly cancelling international scouting, pre-draft combines and individual workouts depending on how big the outbreak becomes. Should a player contract the virus, he would expect to miss at least two weeks, according to a team medical official who spoke with ESPN. Both of those leagues are nearing the end of their respective seasons, the MLB is in the opposite camp with Spring Training underway and Opening Day on the 26th. The league has no plans to cancel or postpone any Spring Training or regular season games as of now, according to a memo obtained by ESPN, but the league has set up a task force to deal with any complications that may arise. The league also recommends that players avoid taking balls and pens from fans and getting a flu shot, while having team’s speak with their local health authorities and consult with an infectious disease specialist to be a channel to those officials. Some teams have limited access to people who have traveled to coronavirus hotspots in Iran, Italy and South Korea. The league also recommends that team officials avoid travel to those countries along with China and Japan, based on Center for Disease Control travel advisories.
