It’s fallen 17% over the past three months and, over the past year, it’s lost a quarter of its value. All these figures exclude dividends.Following this performance, its shares are now dealing at their lowest level since mid-2016. In some respects, this is extremely surprising. Back in 2016, when the lender reported a loss of £5.2bn, RBS was still in the process of recovering from the mistakes made before the financial crisis.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…Rising profits However, during the past three years, the bank seems to have gone from strength to strength. For 2019, it reported a total net profit of £3.5bn. Management also reinstated the group dividend in 2018, the first RBS had paid out since the crisis. In its current financial year, analysts are forecasting a total distribution of 11.8p per share. That translates into a dividend yield of 6.4% on the current share price. Also, analysts expect the group to report a net profit of £2.7bn this year. On an earnings per share basis, the forecast is 22.6p. This suggests the stock is trading at a price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 8.1. Further, after recent declines, the price-to-book (P/B) value of the bank has dipped to 0.5. That suggests if the business were broken up and sold piece by piece, it would be worth 100% more than its current market value. What’s next? All of the above points to a highly profitable bank that’s returning cash to investors. Its valuation metrics also indicate the shares offer a wide margin of safety at current levels. As such, now might be an excellent time for investors to pick up a share of RBS. While it’s impossible to tell what the future holds in the near term for the bank’s share price, over the long run, the stock should track RBS’s fundamental performance. Therefore, if the bank continues to report earnings growth and healthy dividend distributions to investors, the share price should head higher over the long term.Indeed, it’s clear the business is in a much stronger position than it was in 2016. What’s more, the threat of bankruptcy, which has weighed on the stock price for much of the past decade, no longer exists.Balance sheet strengthRBS’s balance sheet is now strong enough to withstand even the most severe economic downturn, after 10 years of remedial action. In the Bank of England’s latest annual assessment of bank balance sheets, RBS passed a crisis scenario involving a 4.7% fall in UK GDP, a rise in unemployment to 9.2%, and a 33% drop in house prices.That’s a stark change. Four years ago, RBS failed the BoEs annual test and was told to improve its financial position by £2bn.  Overall, as the RBS share price continues to plunge, it might be best to focus on the bank’s long-term potential, and value on offer at current levels, rather than the falling price.

Stock market crash: 2 cheap UK shares I’d buy now in an ISA to make a million

The threat of another market meltdown as the Covid-19 crisis rumbles on means that dip buying of UK shares remains thin on the ground. Escalating tensions between the US and China are putting the dampener on stock picker appetite too.This is a colossal shame, in my opinion. Buying FTSE 100 or FTSE 250 stocks (or other UK shares) after a market crash gives us a chance to grab quality stocks at low prices. And then watch them boom in value as economic conditions improve.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…I plan to continue buying UK shares despite the threat of another stock market crash. The possibility of making a fortune by buying low and eventually selling for much higher is colossal.2 of the best UK shares for value chasersThere are too many top-quality companies trading at prices too cheap to miss. And it’s our job at The Motley Fool to tell you about them. Give me a few minutes to tell you about two of the stocks on my personal watchlist:Buying healthcare stocks is always a good choice for even the most nervous of investors. The dependable nature of medicines and demand for medical services means specialists in this area can effectively hurdle even the worst of economic downturns. This is why I think pharmaceuticals play Clinigen Group is a brilliant value buy right now. It trades on a low forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 11 times. And it has a bright future as rising global population levels and increasing healthcare spending in emerging markets balloons. Clinigen aims to grow organic gross profits by  5-10% each year over the medium term at least.Tribal Group isn’t as cheap as Clinigen, but a forward P/E multiple of around 13 times still looks mighty cheap in my book. This UK  share provides educational management software to colleges and universities and it has a packed pipeline of sales possibilities. The impact of Covid-19 is likely to have an big effect on university budgets in the near term. But Tribal still has much to look forward to as more and more educational establishments switch to the public cloud.Join the millionaires’ club!We all dream of making a million. But it doesn’t have to be just a far-fetched idea. Studies show us that long-term share investors make on average an annual return of 10%. This means someone who buys £500 worth of UK shares a month (and who reinvests their dividends) can make a magic £1.03m over the space of 30 years.Clinigen Group and Telit Communications are just two top stocks that could help you join the millionaires’ club. In truth, there’s an abundance of white-hot UK shares that could make you a fortune in the years ahead. And The Motley Fool’s vast collection of special reports can help you dig them out and get seriously rich.   Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Pound cost averaging is a simple strategy any investor can use to build wealth in the stock market. When combined with the benefits of a Stocks and Shares ISA, this approach could help investors like me make a million. Today, I’m going to explain how. 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…Stocks and Shares ISAUsing a Stocks and Shares ISA is one of the easiest ways to invest in the stock market. Most online stock brokers offer one of these products. They’re almost identical to traditional dealing accounts.The key differences are the fact we can only put away £20,000 a year, and any money held inside an ISA doesn’t attract any additional income or capital gains liabilities. We can also only invest in stocks that are traded on what the government calls a recognised exchange. This essentially means any developed market stock market, as well as AIM. As such, if we’re investing less than £20,000 a year in UK stocks, these wrappers can provide tremendous benefits. Most investors don’t have £20,000 just sitting around ready to invest in a Stocks and Shares ISA. That’s why a monthly investment plan is the best alternative, in my opinion. Many online stockbrokers offer a regular investment plan, starting from as little as £25 a month. These plans are relatively straightforward to set up. Once we’ve paid the deposit and chosen the investments, they run themselves. Investing in the stock marketChoosing the investments is the hard part. Buying a basket of high-quality blue-chip stocks may be the best option. Companies such as Unilever, Reckitt Benckiser and AstraZeneca, have proven themselves to be slow and steady investments over the past few decades.Their global diversification, robust profit margins and substantial competitive advantages have helped them stand out and produce a large return for investors. According to my calculations, a basket of these stocks would have produced an average annual return in the double digits for investors over the past decade. My calculations also show it would be possible to make a million with a regular investment plan in a Stocks and Shares ISA for just £200 a month. Specifically, my figures show that monthly investment of £200 could grow into a financial nest egg of £1m after 38 years of saving. That’s assuming an average annual rate of return at 10%. Of course, there’s nothing stopping investors putting more away. Investing £400 a month in a diversified basket of blue-chip stocks could yield a £1m pot within 31 years. By increasing the monthly deposit to £600, it would only take 27 years. The bottom lineThat’s the strategy I’d use to make £1m with a Stocks and Shares ISA. The method could work for any investor as buying a diversified basket of blue-chip stocks may be one of the safest and most straightforward ways to build wealth in the long run.As most online stockbrokers now offer these products, it’s also incredibly straightforward to set up a regular investment plan and leave it to work its magic.  I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Pigs and Pork, Making a Difference for People

first_imgThe shutdown of pork processing plants has left pork producers with a backlog of market-ready pigs. Meanwhile, food banks around the state are running short of pork.  Enter First Farmers Bank and Trust with the “Pigs, Pork, and People” program. “We feel it is our inherent responsibility to be in tune with what the needs of our communities are. This is an opportunity for us to demonstrate what community banking is all about. In our service areas, we are here to do the greater good.”  Pigs and Pork, Making a Difference for People By Gary Truitt – May 10, 2020 Facebook Twitter SHARE “These operations are really in the eye of a firestorm right now, and most are booked up until later this year or next. But, when we talked to some owners and explained we were willing to pay for processing to donate the product to their local community, a few had employees who were willing to work an extra shift and make this happen.” Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Pigs and Pork, Making a Difference for People SHARE Pigs and Pork, Making a Difference for People In the end, it is local people in need who are benefiting. “We are working with a great organization, Hoosiers Feeding the Hungry, and we are targeting food banks in rural areas that sometimes get overlooked,” said Rodibaugh.  “We had more than a few call back and say ‘I will just donate those pigs.’ They just wanted to make a difference in their local area.” In these times of crisis, Powell says it is time for local financial institutions to take the lead and make a difference. Previous articleCommentary: Americans Rediscover Cooking During Covid-19 QuarantineNext articleIndiana Dairy Farmers Develop New Month of May Mission Gary Truitt This is just one of several community programs in which the bank is involved. You may get more details at their web site,  https://www.ffbt.com/growinggood. Tade Powell, with First Farmers Bank, admits this is a relatively small program right now, but they hope it can grow. “We hope this will serve as a model for other areas,” said Powell. The bank will buy hogs from producers, pay for processing at local processors, and then donate the ground pork to food banks in rural communities in Indiana and Illinois. Jeff Rodibaugh, with First Farmers Bank, says the hard part was lining up the local processors. While pork producers are really struggling right now, Rodibaugh says here, too, a community-minded spirit has been evident.last_img read more

New grounds for concern after court refuses to protect TV station director

first_imgNews Chile: RSF calls for exemplary investigation into Chilean photographer’s murder Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” November 26, 2019 Find out more A court in Coyhaique, the capital of the Patagonian region of Aysén, yesterday unanimously rejected a petition by a senator and a human rights lawyer to protect Canal 40 TV Aysén director Samuel Chong Rivera (photo) from police attempts to get him to surrender video of recent protests in the Aysén region.The petition was filed on 29 March after members of the Criminal Investigation Police (PDI) went to Chong’s home and asked him to hand over the video he filmed during the protests.Chong had told his defenders that the PDI officers did not identify themselves or the department they worked for when they went to his home. But PDI representatives denied this in their testimony to the court, insisting that everything was explained to Chong in a registered letter sent to him for “contravening the State Security Law (LSE).”What was the PDI’s objective? To use Chong’s video as evidence against the Aysén region protesters? Even assuming that the police were acting in a “legal” manner, Reporters Without Borders regards the court’s ruling as both dangerous and inopportune for at least three reasons.- Firstly, the protection of all journalists’ material and sources has been undermined by this ruling. Also, it is hard to understand the court’s decision to turn a journalist into a police auxiliary when a provision to this effect was withdrawn from interior minister Rodrigo Hinzpeter’s controversial bill for the preservation of public order. – Secondly, the court cited the LSE as grounds for ruling that the PDI acted legally. But on the same day the petition was filed, the authorities decided not, after all, to press charges under the LSE against the 22 people who were arrested during the protests, including the cameraman Victor Hugo Gómez. In that case, why are the authorities going out of their way to obtain evidence that has apparently become pointless?- Finally, citing the LSE – a never-amended hangover from the 1973-1990 military dictatorship – in a legal wrangle involving the constitutionally-guaranteed right to freedom of information does not bode well for the possibility of dialogue between the government, police and media representatives after the latest violence against journalists. We nonetheless hope such dialogue will take place.Is the social tension in Chile going to subside? Reporters Without Borders is concerned for the safety of journalists and others who provide news and information. Yesterday, the supreme court finally gave the go-ahead for the HydroAysén Project, the construction of five hydro-electric dams in the Aysén region. This highly controversial project has already prompted major protests, especially in the nearby Araucania region, which have been violently dispersed. Against this backdrop, compounded by the death of a policeman on 2 April in Mapuche territory, we caution against any attempt to criminalize journalists and local community media.

first_imgNews CubaAmericas RSF and Fundamedios welcome US asylum ruling in favor of Cuban journalist Serafin Moran Santiago February 23, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two Havana-based foreign correspondents ordered to leave CubaAmericas RSF_en Follow the news on Cuba Cuba and its Decree Law 370: annihilating freedom of expression on the Internet Help by sharing this information Organisation Newscenter_img Reporters Without Borders today condemned Cuba’s decision yesterday not to renew the visas of Gary Marx, the US correspondent of the Chicago Tribune newspaper, and Cesar Gonzáles-Calero, the Spanish correspondent of the Mexico-City based El Universal newspaper. Their accreditation has been withdrawn and they have been told to leave the country. At the same time, BBC correspondent Stephen Gibbs was refused an entry visa yesterday.“When the Cuban authorities are not cracking down on Cuba’s independent journalists, they target foreign correspondents,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The reasons for these expulsions are clear. The Cuban regime is hard put to understand that the press is not a propaganda tool. It should realise the foreign media is not there to please any government, any more than Cuba’s own media should be.”Marx, who has been in Cuba since 2002, was told his reporting was “too negative.” The authorities said he had been in the country “long enough” and gave him 90 days to leave with his family. Marx said he had anyway been planning to leave Cuba in mid-June when his children, aged 8 and 10, finished the school year. He is one of the very few US journalists to be allowed to reside in Havana. The authorities have nonetheless indicated they would considered a request for accreditation from another Chicago Tribune reporter.Gonzáles-Calero, who has been in Cuba since April 2003, said: “Their explanation was that my coverage of the Cuban situation was not convenient for the Cuban government.” The authorities told him to stop reporting on 28 February. El Universal vice-president Roberto Rock said the newspaper would lodge an official complaint with the Cuban government.Seven foreign journalists were turned back on arrival in Cuba last year and an eighth was expelled. to go further October 12, 2018 Find out more News Receive email alerts New press freedom predators elected to UN Human Rights Council May 6, 2020 Find out more News October 15, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
