The BT share price is down over 5% today. But I like its latest results

first_imgThe BT share price is down over 5% today. But I like its latest results Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: BT Enter Your Email Address Learn how you can grab this ‘Top Income Stock’ Report now 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Right now, BT is in something of a transitional phase in challenging times. But things are looking up for the former British Telecom. The latest Wholesale Fixed Telecoms Market Review has been completed, as has the recent 5G spectrum auction. Also, the government’s 130% tax super-deduction frees up more funds for BT to build the next generation of digital infrastructure. By end-2o26, it aims to have delivered full-fibre broadband connections to 25m UK homes (up 5m from the previous target of 20m). But the age-old problem of BT’s pension deficit (a whisker short of £8bn) still remains.Would I buy with the BT share price at 160p?Like all stocks, BT shares are a bet on a successful future for the firm. I like the news that the group is in talks to sell BT Sport, so as to focus on its core telecoms operations. Likewise, I welcome today’s news that it’s seeking external investors in a joint venture backing its highly profitable Openreach fibre division. At the current BT share price, the company is valued at around £16.5bn. If I had the vast personal wealth of Bill Gates, Warren Buffett or Elon Musk, would I buy the whole business? I think I would, which leads me to conclude that I would also buy BT shares at their current levels. But, with the shares hugely down from the £5 they hit in November 2015, I’m not expecting a smooth ride! The Motley Fool UK’s Top Income Stock… This morning, UK telecoms giant BT (LSE: BT.A) released its full-year results. The response from investors was negative, with the BT share price falling back on opening. Even so, there was good news for shareholders, because BT is reinstating its cash dividend.BT had a tough 2020/21Clearly, BT had a challenging 2020/21. In the year ending 31 March, revenue fell 7% to £21.3bn, largely due to the impact of Covid-19. But BT’s bottom line contracted even faster, hit by a special bonus for nearly 60,000 staff, higher servicing costs, and increased investment in fibre. Reported profit before tax crashed by almost a quarter (23%) to £1.8bn. Free cash flow also suffered, slumping 27% to £1.46bn. Given these weak figures, it’s understandable that the BT share price was down this morning.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…Dividend comebackAs for capital expenditure, this rose by 6% to £4.2bn, as BT invests in the migration from copper to full-fibre connections. Looking ahead to 2021/22, BT expects its revenues to be broadly flat year-on-year. It forecasts higher capital expenditure of £4.9bn (up £700m on 2020/21) and lower free cash flow of between £1.1bn and £1.3bn. However, the good news for BT shareholders is that the yearly dividend will resume at 7.7p per share. Based on the current BT share price, this works out at over 4.8% a year. That’s at least a third higher than the wider FTSE 100 index’s dividend yield.The BT share price divesOverall, I don’t see BT’s latest results as being too bad. Without the group’s ongoing cost-cutting programme, they could have been a whole lot worse. But the share price had slid to 160p by 9.40am, down 9.05p (5.4%). Then again, the UK market as a whole is on a slide this week, with the FTSE 100 down over 2% this morning. Thus, BT shares have been dragged harder in a weak market. We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

Ireland XV v Fiji: What did we learn?

first_imgIreland centre Luke Marshall scores a try during the International rugby union match between an Ireland XV and Fiji at Thomond Park in Limerick, Ireland on November 17, 2012. Ireland XV won the game 53-0. AFP PHOTO/ARTUR WIDAK (Photo credit should read ARTUR WIDAK/AFP/Getty Images) A look to the futureDeclan Kidney, for once, selected an experimental starting XV, without the fear of being accused of handing out ‘easy caps’.  The backline was particularly inexperienced with the inclusion of three uncapped Ulstermen; Craig Gilroy, Luke Marshall and Paddy Jackson.  They were joined by Darren Cave who contributed his 3 caps to the combined total of 32 amongst the backline.  In the pack, 20 year old Iain Henderson started at blindside having made a cameo appearance against the Boks last weekend.  To a man, the youngsters justified their selection.Tackling back: Craig Gilroy scored a hat-trickLuke Marshall showcased his impressive array of distribution skills in midfield.  His late try was just reward for an assured performance.  On this showing Marshall has a massive future in the game, and with D’Arcy and O’Driscoll both in the twilight of their careers the call to the top ranks may not be too far away. Likewise Henderson may benefit from injury concerns presently limiting Irelands’ back-row options. Physically Henderson already looks more than capable of holding his own on the international scene.Thomond Park seems to suit Craig GilroyThomond Park is becoming something of a home away from home for Ulster winger Craig Gilroy.  His hat-trick of tries on Saturday evening adding to the superb solo effort he scored in April’s Heineken cup quarter-final at the same venue.  Gilroy is a natural finisher, and his trademark pirouette for which he is well known on the Ravenhill terraces was as effective against the powerful Fijians.  There were one or two fumbles under Murray box kicks, but otherwise this was another successful night in Limerick for the young man. Tough times: Fiji’s Saula Radidi shackles Simon Zebo during the uncapped international at Thomond ParkBy David BlairUncapped and uncompetitiveAN EXPERIMENTAL Ireland XV convincingly swept aside Fiji 53-0 on a damp, and blustery Saturday evening in Limerick.  So far, so good, yet the game lacked Test match intensity. This was partly due to Irelands’ dominance in every facet of play, but also because of the misguided decision to downgrade this autumn fixture to an uncapped international.  In simple terms, the powers that be at the IRFU deemed Fiji unworthy of a full international, or perhaps they feared the consequences of defeat for the senior team.  This was a contentious decision, that in some quarters was deemed disrespectful to the visiting Islanders.So we awaited the Fijian response. They had a point to prove and plenty of motivation to challenge the Irish, except it never happened.  The Islanders may have executed their traditional ‘Cibi’ war dance in their own typically impassioned way but they failed to translate that into a performance of fire and brimstone.  The match was essentially a non-contest.Touchdown: Luke Marshall scores a tryA long way behind SamoaAfter watching Samoa overcome a physically beaten-up Wales on Friday evening, we may have been forgiven for thinking Fiji could continue a positive weekend for the Pacific nations with a decent showing in Limerick. Samoa, chasing a top 8 seeding for the 2015 World Cup, appeared to take their game to the next level with a devastating display featuring brutal counter rucking and an impressive physicality in attack.  And with many of their squad gaining regular exposure to top level rugby in Europe and elsewhere, they showed they merit a place amongst the top tier nations in the modern game.The Fijians, in contrast, are languishing down at 14th in the latest IRB world rankings behind Tonga and Canada.  It would help if Head Coach Inoke Male wasn’t spending too much of his time bartering with European clubs for the release of his top players.  Sireli Bobo and Jone Qovu both made their excuses and pulled out of the Fiji squad for the Test, while Josh Matavesi withdrew citing club commitments.  Whilst the clubs pay their wages it’s clear that the withdrawal of these players harms the global game at Test level.  It may be that the IRB needs to intervene for the good of the game. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Gilroy will now be thrust into contention for a senior cap, though perhaps there is too much riding on the Argentina test for Kidney to tinker too much with his selection. Two-try Fergus McFadden has a more realistic chance of a promotion to the starting XV. Nonetheless Gilroy looks destined for a senior cap in the future.Follow David Blair on Twitter @viscount_davelast_img read more

Stutzman Commends House Agriculture Committee for Adopting Reforms

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Stutzman Commends House Agriculture Committee for Adopting Reforms SHARE By Gary Truitt – Apr 18, 2012 SHARE Facebook Twitter Stutzman Commends House Agriculture Committee for Adopting Reforms Previous articleUSDA to Work with Education Department to Promote Ag CareersNext articleNew Coalition Petitions USDA over Herbicide Tolerant Crops Gary Truitt Wednesday, Congressman Marlin Stutzman (IN-03) commended the House Committee on Agriculture for making credible reforms to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as the food stamp program). Following the reconciliation instructions laid out in the House-passed budget, The Path to Prosperity, the Agriculture Committee passed legislation to achieve over $33 billion in savings from SNAP.  Stutzman first raised a number of the policy reforms considered by the House Agriculture Committee in his Rural Economic Farm and Ranch Sustainability and Hunger (REFRESH) Act, H.R. 3111.  Introduced on October 5, 2011, the bill provided an estimated $40 billion in savings over the next ten years. “As a conservative, I firmly believe that we can meet our fiscal obligations and act on our convictions to help those who are truly in need,” said Stutzman. “When you take a look at SNAP’s exploding costs, there appears to be a disconnect between the expansion of these programs and the ultimate goal of self-sustainability. I believe that the Agriculture Committee has taken responsible and important steps to close loopholes. These are common sense solutions I’ve worked on in the past and I’m glad to help the Committee move forward.”The nutrition title of the REFRESH Act is expected to save taxpayers nearly $14 billion over the next 10 years, accounting for roughly one-third of the REFRESH Act savings, but less than a 2 percent reduction in overall nutrition program spending. Over the past decade, SNAP has grown 300%. “By focusing on closing eligibility loopholes, eliminating overlap in programs, and improving the efficiency of SNAP, we can make a reasonable and important step toward cutting government costs,” said Stutzman.Specifically, the REFRESH Act proposed eliminating broad-based categorical eligibility for SNAP benefits, terminating one of the 47 duplicative federal government job-training programs, and removing the funding for “bonus” payments made to the states that demonstrate “high or most improved performance” in implementing the SNAP.“The REFRESH Act offered real solutions to this challenge – solutions that achieve actual budget savings while not demolishing the underlying programs – and I’m happy to see them included in the Committee’s package today,” said Stutzman.Congressman Stutzman, a freshman member of the House Committees on Budget and Agriculture, has advocated agriculture policy reform long before serving in the House of Representatives. A fourth-generation farmer from Howe, Indiana, Stutzman is co-owner of Stutzman Farms. Together, with his father, two brothers, and brother-in-law, the Stutzmans farm 4,500 acres in northern Indiana, growing soybeans, green beans, and seed corn. Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Use frequent intense study sessions over time versus long marathon sessions,” according to the website. Final exam week begins Monday, Dec. 14, and will continue through Friday, Dec. 18. + posts Settlement reached between TCU, former professor in discrimination lawsuit ReddIt Alex Gaffiganhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/alex-gaffigan/ Warmer weather starts gardening season early, with some negative impactslast_img read more

Chairman confirms likelihood of airport rental

first_img Previous articleMother despairs of getting her own homeNext articleGilmore criticised for ‘U turn’ on Shannon investigations admin Linkedin Print WhatsApp As reported in the Limerick Post last week, one option raised for the airport was to lease it to a private consortium for a period of up to 35 years.THE chairman of the board of Shannon Airport has confirmed that it has offered its views to the Minister for Transport on the possibility of privatising the airport.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up And in a letter to local media, chairman, Brian O’Connell, has warned that the airport cannot go on doing business as it has before.In the letter, Mt OConnell said that in June of this year, the Shannon Airport Authority board received a communication from the Minister for Transport, Leo Varadker, seeking their views in relation to a number of points.“Among these were the feasibility and desirability of restructuring Shannon as an independent airport, the privatisation or part privatisation of the airport with the government retaining a strategic shareholding and the role of the SAA board if separation is not a viable option,” he said.“Since receiving the Minister’s communication, we as a Board have held a number of meetings and discussions, addressing the real challenges that exist in the aviation industry both globally and nationally at this point in time.“It is clear that the ways in which we have organised and managed business in the past have to change to take into account the reality of present and future market challenges,” Mr O’Connell said.“It is no longer sustainable for any business to continue in a loss-making mode. Every business, including Shannon Airport must reconfigure itself and re-engineer its future in the light of the dramatically changed landscape”.The letter said that since being appointed, the Board has focused on supporting the management team to “prioritise, sustain and develop the business operations at Shannon Airport.“As a Board we are very mindful that Shannon Airport is, and should continue to be, a powerful driver of current and future economic vitality in the whole west of Ireland region if it is adequately capitalised and superbly managed.”As reported in the Limerick Post last week, one option raised for the airport was to lease it to a private consortium for a period of up to 35 years.This option caused concern that the priority of the airport would be fast profit for investors ahead of the needs of development and economic growth in the region as a whole.Mr O’Connell did not say in his letter whether the Board had given its recommendation to such an option.

first_imgPrint Email Twitter Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up LIMERICK’s prison officers, together with their colleagues in the 10 other closed facilities and the three open and semi-open centres around the country, have been praised and honoured for the work they do in helping to rehabilitate offenders while in custody after Minister for Justice, Ms Frances Fitzgerald outlined that prison allows criminals to “address the causes of their offending behaviour”.The Limerick Minister made her comments at the launch of new set of stamps to mark the work of the prison service in Ireland.With more than 3,400 staff working throughout the system in Ireland, several hundred varied professional personnel are attached to the 250 prisoners at the Mulgrave St facility.Launching the four-stamp collection, the Minister said that the collection is a worthy recognition of the work done by the staff of the prison service.On average, there are more than 4,000 prisoners in custody at any one time throughout the 14 institutions.“While prison is meant to be a punitive through the deprivation of liberty, more importantly it provides an opportunity for a person who may have been marginalised by society, missed out on education or caught in a spiral of addiction and criminal activity to address the causes of their offending behaviour. It is the responsibility of the Irish Prison Service, its staff, its partners, both statutory and non-statutory, to provide those opportunities through the provision of services such as education, work training, healthcare services and drug treatment among others,” added Minister Fitzgerald.Irish Prison Service director general Michael Donnellan said the stamp collection honours every member of staff of the service.“It highlights that the Irish Prison Service is not simply a collection of institutions made up of high walls and secure doors but is made up of the men and women of the service who work each day behind those walls and doors for the State,” he said.

Unison calls for action over pay at FE colleges

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. HR staff at universities and colleges across the UK face strike action after public sector union Unison called for a ballot of its 60,000 members.The union is protesting against a recent 3 per cent pay offer to staff which it believes is below the going rate and well below the recommendations of the Bett Report into higher education pay. Ged Murray, chairman of the Universities Personnel Association, said, “While we sympathise and understand the situation of many of the staff, this is all we can afford to pay. Even funding at this level has major implications for future staffing levels and some universities have already warned of redundancies which may result from this.” He added, “After Bett we were promised £600m but this hasn’t happened and we have to pay what we can afford from the existing budgets.”The union wants a 10 per cent rise, a minimum wage of £5 and a reduced working week. Unison head of higher education Elaine Harrison said, “After years of cuts, poor pay deals and an independent review, we are still no nearer to pay justice. “The Bett Report recommended raising pay levels and improving and harmonising conditions of service, and yet the employers have withdraw from national bargaining of the conditions of service.” Unison calls for action over pay at FE collegesOn 17 Oct 2000 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. last_img read more
