The firm has haemorrhaged funds since, with investors withdrawing £7.2bn in 2010. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. 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. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. We’re all aware of the pandemic roller coaster that Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) shares have been on through the last year. At just above 125p a year ago, they then peaked at just below 140p in June before dipping below 40p in October. The share price has certainly kept investors on their toes. However, is the worst behind it?Pandemic losses2020 left Rolls-Royce with a loss of almost £4bn. Rolls makes the majority of its money servicing aeroplane engines, an industry largely curtailed by Covid travel restrictions. In an effort to reduce its cost base, the firm slashed 7,000 jobs, in line with what boss Warren East described as “the largest restructuring in our recent history”.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…In October 2020, 6.4bn new shares were issued in an emergency move to raise new capital. Shareholders were able to purchase 10 new shares at 32p each for every three shares they owned. Though this raised £2bn, Rolls-Royce shares halved in value as a consequence, slumping to a 15-year low. This also drastically reduced the earnings per share, a key valuation metric for stock performance.Pre-pandemic problemsRolls-Royce shares were troubled even before the pandemic. In 2019, the company had to fork out £800m to remedy ongoing durability problems relating to the Trent 100 engines. This raised the total cost of Trent engine problems to £2.4bn for 2017-2023. Rolls therefore upped spending to get grounded aircraft back in the sky. This put excess strain on cash flow, which was magnified tenfold when the pandemic struck.Rolls-Royce shares’ future outlookBut while 2020 proved disastrous for Rolls-Royce shares, it’s not all bad news. The company is planning to construct 16 mini-nuclear power plants as part of its small modular reactor programme. It’s expected to receive £200m towards the project from the UK government. Projects like these are essential to the UK if it wants to reach its target of zero emissions by 2050.And with Covid restrictions easing daily around the world, the travel sector is poised for huge growth in coming years. This is good news for Rolls, as it expects hours flown by its engines to increase 80% by 2022. For example, TUI still has 2.8m holidays booked for this summer, which will be delivered by Boeing 787 Dreamliners. These planes are powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines.Civil aerospace accounts for a dominant slice of Rolls-Royce business. However, Rolls-Royce Defence actually saw growth of 8% throughout 2020, generating an underlying profit of £448m. Also, its Spanish subsidiary ITP Aero, which manufactures niche aero engine and gas turbine parts, made £68m profits. These ventures may help bolster Rolls-Royce shares’ future value.My VerdictThe aerospace sector was decimated by the pandemic. Though cost-cutting and restructuring did take place, the truth is the company’s balance sheet is still shaky at best.The pandemic still isn’t over and a sluggish restart of global travel could continue to dent the business, whose share price was declining even before 2020. While the current share price rise may look enticing, there’s still a lot that could go wrong. Therefore, I won’t be adding Rolls-Royce shares to my post-pandemic portfolio.center_img Rolls-Royce shares are nudging higher. Should I buy now? Image source: Getty Images.

The Undoing of the Obama Ag Agenda

first_imgHome Commentary The Undoing of the Obama Ag Agenda Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Apr 2, 2017 Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for April 3, 2017Next articlePurdue Ag Students use Ag Week to Touch the Non-Aggies Gary Truitt Thus, it is not surprising that since day one of his administration, President Trump has been aggressively and systematically dismantling many of the policy changes made by President Obama. One of his first actions was to do away with WOTUS . The latest is to do away with the core of the Obama climate change program: restriction on coal burning power plants.  Now the EPA has decided to continue allowing the use of the insecticide chlorpyrifos, stating that the science surrounding human health effects is too uncertain to justify its own proposed ban on food tolerances. This is a sign of the new philosophy at the agency. Even the rhetoric has changed. EPA head Scott Pruitt told cattlemen recently that he will “Return the rule of law to EPA.”  Things are changing at the Interior department where the land management and conservation efforts of farmers and ranchers are now being praised and seen as valued.  With this as a backdrop, one can only imagine what will happen once we finally get a new Secretary of Agriculture. The protracted confirmation process of former Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue has kept the USDA in a holding pattern. The Undoing of the Obama Ag Agenda Like the workout gurus say, “No pain no gain.” While we are likely to gain some much-needed reform, there is going to be some pain. We have already seen the likelihood of big budget cuts at many federal agencies. This is going to mean someone’s ox gets gored.  In addition, the Trump agenda on other issues like trade, immigration, and tax reform will have an impact on agriculture, with the exact direction and consequences still unknown. Over the next few months, the undoing will continue; but soon the new Congress and the new Administration will have to start doing or in some cases re-doing U.S. Agriculture and food policy and regulations. SHARE For the past 8 years, many in agriculture have felt the federal government was at war with the American farmer. During his first few days at the USDA, Secretary Vilsack ruffled feathers in mainline ag circles by saying rural development would be the top priority of his administration not commodity programs. Then, the EPA tried to ban atrazine, regulate dust and water in ditches, used drones to spy on livestock operations, released farmer data to activist groups, reduced ethanol blend levels, and enacted a host of restrictive and burdensome regulations aimed at changing how farmers farm. Then,  the Labor Department tried to keep kids from working on the farm. The White House itself got in on the act as the first lady took a personal hand in rewriting school lunch menus across the nation. Meanwhile, Democrats in Congress pushed through mandatory County of Origin legislation, a re-write of FDA food safety rules, and mandatory GMO labeling.  All of this played no small part in the rural revolt that put Donald Trump in the White House.

RSF urges Cameroonian court to acquit RFI correspondent

first_imgNews News Follow the news on Cameroon Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the acquittal of Radio France Internationale’s Hausa-language correspondent, Ahmed Abba, after the latest hearing in his case before a military court in Yaoundé on 5 October. April 23, 2021 Find out more October 7, 2016 RSF urges Cameroonian court to acquit RFI correspondent CameroonAfrica Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentImprisonedJihadism The trial is being followed closely because Abba, held since 30 July 2015, is facing a possible death sentence on terrorism charges. Representatives of the European Commission, the French embassy and the Cameroonian Federation of Press Publishers attended the hearing.Abba’s lawyers, Charles Tchoungang and Clément Nakong, raised many procedural objections at the hearing. They also objected to the belated inclusion of “computer expert” Ben Bidjocka as witness for the prosecution and to the fact their computer material seized at the time of Abba’s arrest was not placed under seal.The military court adjourned the trial until 19 October when it will rule on the defence’s objections. This will be decisive. If the objections are rejected, the court will begin to hear the substance of the case against Abba. Alternatively, the case against him will be dismissed for lack of evidence.“We are following this trial closely,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The next hearing will be crucial for Ahmed Abba’s acquittal. In the absence of any hard evidence, we call on the Cameroonian judicial authorities to drop all the charges against this journalist and release him without delay.”Charged in November 2015 with “complicity in terrorist acts” and “failure to report terrorist acts” in connection with the radical Islamist rebel group Boko Haram, Abba has always insisted on his innocence. He is facing the possibility of a death sentence under the 2014 terrorism law.Cameroon is ranked 126th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
