Do these crashing FTSE share prices mean we should buy?

first_imgSimply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Alan Oscroft | Tuesday, 14th April, 2020 | More on: CINE ENQ Alan Oscroft has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The stock market is looking fairly stable, perhaps surprisingly so. But some individual FTSE share prices are gyrating wildly.On Tuesday, we saw several share prices soaring by 30% and more. At the same time, there were double-digit drops too.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…Which should we go for, the ones that look like they’re recovering? Or the fallers, which might have bigger rebound potential?Volatile share pricesCineworld Group (LSE: CINE) has been one of the biggest victims of the coronavirus crash, losing almost 90% of its value at one point. It’s been erratic too, but it has bounced back to a slightly less painful loss of 64% during the crisis.The share price actually perked up when the markets opened on Tuesday, gaining an early 12%. But it turned down soon after, and stands 11% down as I write, putting it among the losing FTSE share prices of the day.Like many, Cineworld has suspended its dividend during the pandemic crisis. Some investors will see that as really bad news, but I reckon it’s exactly the right thing to do. Companies should be focusing firmly on their balance sheets and their long-term survival, not on pleasing the short-term City folks who want this year’s cash in their pockets.So, avoid or buy? At today’s price, Cineworld shares are on a trailing P/E of only around four. If the lockdown ends soon and Cineworld gets back to business, there could be a nice recovery profit here.But at year-end, Cineworld was sitting on $3.5bn in debt, for a debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 3.4. And that could bite. I see far less risky shares elsewhere in the FTSE.Oil & gas contrarian?The collapsing oil price has hurt the sector, and could lead some of the smaller and heavily indebted operators going bust.But, hit by a pandemic slump along with the rest of the FTSE oilies, Enquest (LSE: ENQ) has been bucking the downward trend in the past couple of weeks. It was among Tuesday’s losing share prices with a 12% drop, but it’s gained close to 50% since a low at the end of March.It should get a boost from the Opec agreement to cut global output and shore up prices. There hasn’t been much of an effect yet, mind, with a barrel still commanding only around $32. But the price could start to gain fairly soon, once the world’s surplus starts to reduce.Enquest has, in its favour, an operating cost that averaged only $21 per barrel last year. And that should give it a little breathing room while prices are down.FTSE gamble?But Enquest’s big problem, like so many smaller oil companies, is debt. It stood at $1.4bn at year-end, though that represents a modest debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 1.4.I think Enquest could turn out to be a profitable investment, if oil prices recover far enough before it starts to feel the financial pinch. If not, could we see the firm turning to the markets for a new equity issue?Enquest is a gamble for the brave, though I don’t invest in the hope of simply getting lucky myself.

Anti-imperialist youth meet in Ecuador

first_imgCaleb T. MaupinWW photo: Brenda RyanIn Ecuador, years of organizing, resisting and fighting back led to the election of President Rafael Correa in 2006. Correa is identified with the protest movement. His election was a referendum on neoliberalism, and he won overwhelmingly.After Correa was elected, the U.S. imperialists tried to overthrow him. They turned to the Ecuadorian police, who kidnapped him. But the people of Ecuador poured into the streets and fought back. They rescued their president and beat back the CIA.President Correa leads a coalition of anti-imperialist forces. Something similar is happening in Venezuela, Bolivia, Nicaragua and other countries in Latin America. These governments are anti-imperialist and strive for independence from the dominion of the capitalists in the U.S., Britain, France and elsewhere. Called the “Bolivarian Process,” this is greatly improving the lives of millions of working-class people.In Ecuador, we saw free dental care. Dentists were in tents. If you wanted some dental care, you just got in line and they took care of you for free.People with no health insurance can now go to free health care clinics run by Cuban doctors. Poor people in Ecuador who were blinded because of poverty now have their sight back, thanks to free surgery provided by the Cuban doctors.Ecuador is trading with other countries from the oppressed world and with Russia, China, Cuba, north Korea and Iran. This trade is mutually beneficial.While capitalism remains intact in Ecuador, something is happening. The working class is in motion, and the imperialists are being pushed back.All these movements take inspiration and guidance from Marxist-Leninist revolutionary leaders like Che Guevara and Fidel and Raul Castro.The World Festival of Youth and Students was revived in 1997, mainly by the Cubans. Every four years since then, young communists have met for a week to discuss the struggle to bring down capitalism and fight imperialism.We in the WWP delegation met with over 20 different communist youth organizations from around the world. The most inspiring meetings were with youth who live under socialism.Two members of Cuba’s Young Communist League worked with us throughout the week. In addition to formal meetings, we had many relaxed social dinners.We asked what conditions were like for homeless youth in Cuba. They responded that there are no homeless youth in Cuba. The government makes sure that all citizens have adequate housing and that especially the youth, the future of the revolution, are never homeless.The honesty of the Cubans was inspiring. We asked about the rights of women and of lesbian, gay, bi, and trans people in Cuba. They said Cuba is still struggling against patriarchy and the idea that men are the heads of families.In recent years, there has been a campaign to bring equality to LGBT people. Ads are on display promoting LGBT rights. Anti-LGBT violence is being cracked down on and has basically been eliminated.There are still problems. If youths come out as LGBT and their parents are hostile to them, the Young Communist League will intervene and work with the families, counseling them to be accepting of the youths.The Cubans had questions for us, asking about education in the United States. When we told them there are police in the schools, arresting students, they were horrified.Meetings with Korean and Vietnamese youthWe met with the Kim Il Sung Youth from People’s Korea. The delegates from the DPRK were really the stars of the festival. They sang beautiful music, not just Korean but Cuban revolutionary songs. They seem like the happiest people on earth.When reading statements or giving a presentation, they were very serious. But you could see the real love and affection they had for each other. They told us they hate what they called the “fascist imperialist government of the United States,”but they had no hatred for ordinary working people in the United States.We were invited to a special meeting by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union of Vietnam. A Vietnamese comrade from the Los Angeles branch of Workers World Party translated.The Vietnamese described how it will take more than 300 years to repair all the damage done to their country by decades of war. They said they are not yet a socialist country like Cuba or the DPRK, but are moving in that direction.The youths said capitalism still exists in Vietnam, but the party is in charge, controlling and regulating it. They said the party is using capitalism to build up a socialist economic infrastructure, much like what Lenin did in the Soviet Union during the New Economic Policy. They provide free health care to all young children and have gotten rid of illiteracy.We told them WWP demands that the U.S. government pay reparations to the people of Vietnam for its many crimes.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Limerick priest investigates Argentinian corruption claims

first_imgPrint Facebook Father Tom O’DonnellFather Tom O’DonnellA west Limerick priest has been tasked with getting to the bottom of the corruption scandal that has rocked the Argentinian political establishment to its core.Father Tom O’Donnell, from Templeglantine, is heading up the Catholic Church’s investigation into a case which involves claims that a former Argentinian government minister tried to stash US$9 million (€8.2 million) in a small convent near Buenos Aries.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The alleged incident occurred on June 14 when a man was spotted throwing black plastic sacks into the grounds of the Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima convent and then climbing over the fence after them.A witness contacted the police and they found former Minister for Public Works, José López, and three elderly nuns, standing around the bags he had thrown over the fence.Almost $9 million was found in the bags and a further search found an illegal firearm in Minister Lopez’s car. When questioned by police, López claimed to be a church official and is then alleged to have offered the police officers a bag containing almost $2 million.Discussing his role in the investigation, Fr O’Donnell said that his focus was on uncovering the nuns’ involvement in a story which has gripped the nation.“We will have to go through the evidence in a way that is honest and respectful of the laws of the church and the state. We will co-operate with the justice system to try and reach the truth and find out what really happened. Were the nuns being used or were they aware of what was happening?” the 64-year old Limerickman said.While keen to distance himself from the political element of the story, Fr O’Donnell, who has been working in Argentina since 1978, admitted to being aware that the “government at the time helped the bishop and his congregation to build part of the convent” and that there was “a relationship between the minister, his secretary and the founder of the congregation.”His main focus however remains on uncovering the involvement of the nuns, one of whom is 94-years old.“Did they commit a crime, these old nuns? It’s only a new congregation but they still have fundamental law, constitutions and statutes. The investigation is to find out if they comply with these promises of obedience, poverty. Our local archbishop has formed the commission and we’re just starting this coming week,” said Fr O’Donnell.

As reported by Money Control, today, in the first half of the meeting, the farm leaders raised the issue of NIA notices being issued to various union leaders. In response to this, the government sought the list of union leaders who have been served notice by the National Investigation Agency (NIA). As reported by PTI, the Agriculture Minister, Narendra Singh Tomar today told the farmer unions that Central Government is ready to give an affidavit in SC to dispel any doubts in the minds of farmer unions. Sources have also reported that the Central Government has proposed to put on hold the implementation of the laws for 1-1.5 years so that consultations could take place related to the issues surrounding the 3 Farm Laws so as to come with a solution. This development has come amid the submission made by Advocate Prashant Bhushan and Senior Advocate Dushyant Dave before the Supreme Court today that the farmers unions are ‘totally convinced’ that the farm laws need to be repelled and therefore they will not appear before the committee to discuss amendments. Bhushan and Dave are appearing for the eight farmers unions which were added as respondents by the Supreme Court in December last year in the cases seeking removal of farmers protesting against the contentious farm laws from Delhi borders. It may be noted that the bench headed by the CJI last week said that it will suspend until further orders, the implementation of the contentious farm laws-‘Farmers’ Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Act, 2020′, Farmers (Empowerment and Protection) Agreement of Price Assurance and Farm Services Act, 2020′ and Essential Commodities(Amendment) Act, 2020. During the hearing which took place last week, the Chief Justice of India had made sharp critical comments against the Central Government for passing the laws “without enough consultation” and for not having resolved the farmers protests, which had been going on since November 26 near Delhi borders. Breaking: Farm Laws Implementation Stayed, Committee Formed For Talks, MSP To Continue- Read Summary Of Supreme Court Directions The Supreme Court on Tuesday (12th January) constituted a 4 member committee for the purpose of holding talks between the Central Government and the farmers to resolve the protests over the three contentious farm laws. A notable feature of the composition of the committee was that all four members- BS Mann, Ashok Gulati, Dr Pramod Kumar Joshi and Anil Ghanwat- have expressed open views in support of implementation of farm laws. However, later on S. Bhupinder Singh Mann recused himself from the 4 member committee constituted by Supreme Court The protesting unions have repeatedly said that they will not appear before a Committee which has only members representing a one-side view. While speaking to Live Law, Amit Pandey, a freelance Journalist/Video Producer presently working with Gaon Connection, confirmed that the Central Government did put the proposal to delay the implementation of Farm Laws before the farmer leaders and requested them to meet the Supreme Court formed committee and put forth their grievances before it. Pandey, who has been covering the farmers’ agitation extensively, further told that the previous nine rounds of formal talks between the Centre and farmer unions couldn’t yield any concrete result as the farmer unions have stuck to their main demand of a complete repeal of the three acts. It may be noted that the Supreme Court has issued notice on an application seeking re-constitution of the Committee appointed by the Top Court for the purpose of holding talks between the Central Government and the farmers for a resolution of the protests due to the three contentious farm laws.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Who is Andy Warhol?

first_imgLatest Stories Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Skip By The Penny Hoarder For weeks now, billboards and a news media blitz have announced the coming of Andy Warhol to the Johnson Center for the Arts.And for, lo, those many weeks, people have been asking, “Who’s Andy Warhol?”Some have asked if he’s a rock star. Others have guessed he’s the spokesperson for Campbell’s Soup. And at least one has identified him as the man in Little Orphan Annie.

Andy Warhol is none of the above.He was an American artist and a central figure in the movement known as Pop Art.And, unknowing to most, he coined the phrase, “15 minutes of fame.” Sponsored Content Print Article The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson And that’s perhaps where Warhol fits best. In a nutshell.“He was a goofball,” Richard Metzger, executive director of the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center, said laughing. “He liked being notorious. He fabricated his own mystique. Andy Warhol created art that has stood the test of time because he, more than any other artist, understood how the distance between the working class and the glitzy crowd could be both enormous and insignificant.”Metzger said it was just a stroke of luck that placed Warhol in New York in the early 1960s but it was nothing short of genius that his work spoke to the people and to the times.“Warhol’s work was exhibited at the Stable Gallery in New York in 1962,” Metzger said. “The exhibit included art of Elvis and Campbell’s Soup cans and people didn’t know what to think. They didn’t know whether it was for real or a joke being pulled at their expense.”Metzger said, as one art connoisseur was leaving the gallery, he asked another what he thought.“It was awful,” was the reply.“And, Andy Warhol was on his way,” Metzger said, with a smile. “There were probably dozens of artists exhibiting their work in New York at that time whose work and names were never known.”Andy Warhol didn’t think that art should be only for a select few. It should be for everybody. Pop art is about liking things, he said.Commercialism was running rampant and Warhol ran right along with it. His art played on everyone’s fantasies of glamour and celebrity and, at the same time, his art demonstrated that these celebrities were available to everyone.His art still has that appeal because it does belong to everybody. The long haul truck driver can enjoy Warhol’s John Wayne just as much as an art gallery curator.Warhol has been quoted as saying what is great about America is that it started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest.“You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola and you know that the President drinks Coke, Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too. A Coke is a Coke and no amount of money can get you a better Coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the Cokes are the same and all the Cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it and you know it.”That’s the way the art of Andy Warhol is. The President views his Campbell’s Tomato Soup can in the same way that the hobo living under the bridge views it. And, when the President opens the can, it’s the same tomato soup inside that the hobo gets.Warhol’s art is about the sameness in the world. It’s about mass advertising. It’s about image overload in the media. It’s about the routine, the ordinary, the mundane. It’s about everyday life and the diversions from it.Metzger said it’s art that people from all walks of life and of all ages can relate to and understand and hopefully appreciate.At 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 14 the grand opening of the Holman and Ethel Johnson Center for the Arts will feature the Prints of Andy Warhol. The exhibition will run through Nov. 15 and it’s free and open to the public. “Oh, he did that? Well, now that’s something,” Joe Doe might say and suddenly Andy Warhol is “somebody.”And in reality he was and is.According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, after a successful career as a commercial illustrator, Warhol became famous worldwide for his work as a painter, an avant-garde filmmaker, a record producer, an author and a public figure known for his membership in wildly diverse social circles that included bohemian street people, distinguished intellectuals, Hollywood celebrities and wealthy aristocrats.That in a nutshell is Andy Warhol.
