Robert Wiseman warns on profit as price war hits

first_img Tags: NULL Robert Wiseman warns on profit as price war hits KCS-content The company that procures, processes and delivers milk to customers across the UK forecast second-half operating profit falling by around £7m and by £16m in 2012.“Some of the assets that Dairy Farmers of Britain (DFOB) used to own are now coming back into operation. We are seeing more capacity and more dairy companies chasing volume,” a spokesman said. Along with an increase in the number of small and mid-sized local rivals after the demise of co-operative DFOB last year, aggressive supermarket pricing tactics are also affecting Robert Wiseman’s business. Asda began discounting milk and market leader Tesco followed. Robert Wiseman Dairies yesterday said it expected stiff competition to hurt its operating profits for the second half and next year, sending the shares down by nearly a third. whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Thursday 16 September 2010 8:26 pm Share Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family ProofCheese Crostini: Delicious Recipes Worth CookingFamily Prooflast_img read more

Tempted by the Carnival share price? Here’s what you need to know

first_img The world’s largest cruise ship operator Carnival (LSE: CCL) published its half-year results on Friday afternoon. Given that all sailings have been suspended since mid-March, you’d expect grim news, but the Carnival share price climbed soon after the figures were released.I’ve been taking a closer look. Although the numbers aren’t pretty, I can see some signs of hope. However, I think that anyone buying the shares today needs to understand the risks involved.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…Cruises restart in AugustThe headline news is that Carnival is going to start cruising again in August. But this isn’t a return to normal.Carnival will be testing the waters with three ships sailing from Germany under its AIDA brand. They will have reduced passenger capacity, strict safety and hygiene procedures and enhanced on-board medical facilities. Each trip will be three days and there will not be any port calls.Looking further ahead, Carnival says that it’s seeing steady bookings for 2021. Capacity remaining for sale next year is said to be within historical ranges, albeit with prices down by “low-to-mid single-digits” percentages.Customer loyaltySo far, only half the passengers whose cruises have been cancelled have asked for cash refunds. The rest have been happy to accept credits against future cruise bookings. This highlights a key attraction of this industry — cruise ship passengers are often repeat customers.Personally, I’m not too worried about future demand, as long as Carnival can restart cruising without a repeat of the on-board Covid-19 outbreaks we saw in the early part of this year.A health disaster would probably cause the Carnival share price to crash. But I think this is unlikely. As a shareholder, I’m far more worried about the financial risks in this situation.$650m per month to do nothingMonthly expenses have fallen from $1bn in the early stages of lockdown to around $650m today. But that’s still a lot of money when you can’t trade.The group’s half-year accounts suggest to me that the company may just be able to get back to business without running out of cash. Since March, Carnival has raised about $10bn in new debt and equity. The group’s current cash balance is about $6.9bn, which should cover outgoings for the rest of the year.Management has also managed to speed up several planned ship sales. Nine ships are expected to be sold in the next 90 days, in addition to four on which sales were agreed last year.However, losses of $2.9bn are recorded relating to ship valuations. This suggests to me that these sales may be at bargain prices. It’s probably not a good time to be a forced seller of cruise ships.Carnival share price: buy, sell or hold?I think Carnival will adapt and survive. But it’s not yet clear whether the group will be able to return to profitable operation without needing refinancing.If that happens, then I think the most likely outcome would be that some of the group’s $18bn debt mountain would be converted into new shares. Existing Carnival shareholders would probably face big losses in this scenario.I think the situation is finely balanced. I’m going to continue holding, but I would say that this is only a buy for investors with a fair level of risk-tolerance. Enter Your Email Address Roland Head owns shares of Carnival.

Forget NIO and Tesla. I’d rather buy and hold these cheap shares

first_img Enter Your Email Address Markets around the world are reeling from the coronavirus pandemic…And with so many great companies trading at what look to be ‘discount-bin’ prices, now could be the time for savvy investors to snap up some potential bargains.But whether you’re a newbie investor or a seasoned pro, deciding which stocks to add to your shopping list can be daunting prospect during such unprecedented times.Fortunately, The Motley Fool is here to help: our UK Chief Investment Officer and his analyst team have short-listed five companies that they believe STILL boast significant long-term growth prospects despite the global lock-down…You see, here at The Motley Fool we don’t believe “over-trading” is the right path to financial freedom in retirement; instead, we advocate buying and holding (for AT LEAST three to five years) 15 or more quality companies, with shareholder-focused management teams at the helm.That’s why we’re sharing the names of all five of these companies in a special investing report that you can download today for FREE.

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. NIO and Tesla are two shares benefiting from high profiles among private investors. However, they’re highly priced. To get rich from investing, I’d prefer to buy and hold the shares of profitable companies that are trading cheaply.Even as the stock market recovers from the worst of the pandemic there are still plenty of cheap shares in the FTSE 350. Here are two I like.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…A cheap share I’d buy and holdLet’s be clear, comparison group Moneysupermarket (LSE: MONY) faces some challenges. Hence the shares are cheap. The P/E is only 14. It faces problems in the form of lower demand for energy switching, and less travel. The pandemic has hit a few of its trading divisions simultaneously. That meant in the three months to 30 September, revenue fell 16% to £85.1m.However, I’m reasonably confident about the longer term. I believe awareness of the need to switch accounts in insurance, energy and banking must be growing: headline after headline makes it clear loyalty is penalised. Research from the Energy Switch Guarantee has revealed that nearly half (48%) of those surveyed said they had switched energy supplier in the last four years. I think though there’s further to go to get more consumers to change their behaviour and switch even more, which will be good news for MONY.Looking at the company financially, as you might expect of a business whose primary asset is a website, margins and free cash flow are high. That’s good news for investors, Especially when the group also has no debt. Profits go to shareholders rather than paying lenders.Overall, Moneysupermarket is a cheap share with growth and income potential. That makes it a share I’d buy and hold.Another pandemic-battered share priceShares in food-to-go group Greggs (LSE: GRG) are still well below where they started the year. Lockdowns inevitably reduced demand for its comfort food, especially among office workers.However, a Morgan Stanley survey has shown that the average number of days that office workers want to work from home has dipped to around two days a week from 2.3 previously. This shows predictions of a permanent work-from-home culture might not quite be on the mark. That’s good news for Greggs. It makes its money from people on the move, and a big part of that is people who are commuting to or from work, or grabbing a quick lunch. Other studies have shown our early lockdown habits have largely been replaced by more usual behaviour. I think plenty of consumers will be tucking into a vegan sausage roll once the pandemic subsides.From this point on, the battered Greggs share price could be a winner, I feel. I fully expect it to outperform NIO and Tesla over the next 12 months and I have even more faith it can do it over a longer timeframe, such as the next three years. To me, it looks like a cheap share with plenty of future recovery potential. center_img Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The BT share price is up 6%+ in a week. Could this be BT’s big comeback?

first_img Image source: BT Cliff D’Arcy | Tuesday, 4th May, 2021 | More on: BT-A 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. The BT share price is up 6%+ in a week. Could this be BT’s big comeback? Last week produced a rare ray of sunshine for BT Group (LSE: BT.A) shareholders. The BT share price rose steadily all week and continued rising on Tuesday. Over the past week, BT shares are the fifth-best performer in the FTSE 100 index. Could this be the start of a long-awaited comeback for the stock?BT shares surge since MarchIn late February, the BT share price was sagging. On 26 February, it closed at 123.55p. As I write, the shares trade at 168.35p. That’s an increase of 44.8p — more than a third (36.3%) — in just over two months. This was a much-needed shot in the arm for BT.A, which has pretty much been in free-fall since 2015.5G 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…Since Tuesday, 27 April, the BT share price has gained 9.75p (6.1%). Also, the stock is up over one month (+6.6%), three months (+27.9%), six months (+62.7%), and one year (+42.1%). However, as with many other FTSE 100 stocks, BT shares plunged in 2020 as Covid-19 spread.The BT share price has bombed since 2016The BT share price has soared since Halloween 2020, but has been a long-term dog for shareholders. Over two years, BT stock is down 28%; it has lost 33.9% over three years. Over five years, the loss is a gruesome 62%. Up until 2020, I’d need a gun to my head to get me to buy BT stock. But in 2020–21, I see long-awaited recovery potential for BT shares, so I’ve changed my mind.BT returns to its rootsThe BT share price hit its post-2000 peak above £5 in late 2015, but that’s long ago. Recently, BT’s corporate story has been one of managed decline. Its revenues and net income have been shrinking since 2017. But I’m genuinely optimistic that the telecoms giant might stage something of a comeback.One interesting development came last week: BT is considering selling its BT Sport arm to a rival media corporation. In these early-stage discussions, big names in the frame include The Walt Disney Company and Amazon. I’ve long been wary of BT’s foray into sports broadcasting, given the sheer financial firepower of rivals such as Sky. Ditching its sports division could free up well over £1bn a year to invest in BT’s core businesses. By returning to its roots in telephony and broadband, the company has a decent chance of boosting the future BT share price.Would I buy BT.A today?In common with many FTSE 100 firms, BT suspended its dividend in 2020. Even without Covid-19 to blame, this cash pay-out needed trimming. This cutback will free up valuable cash to support future growth (especially in Openreach, BT’s highly profitable infrastructure division). Also, higher cash flow could help tackle BT’s £17bn of net debt and strengthen its balance sheet.Would I buy today with the BT share price at just over 168p, for a market value of £16.4bn? I think so, although I would probably wait to see the full-year results due on 13 May. Also, given BT’s recent chequered history, I’d tread carefully. For BT stock to really captivate me, I’d like to see free cash flow of £1bn to £1.5bn. However, if yearly capital expenditure soars beyond £3bn as BT Openreach rolls out UK-wide full-fibre broadband, then I’d certainly think twice about holding BT shares!

She concludes that “if an organisation does not host its own online community, for whatever participants, it can expects its volunteers, clients and advocates – and sometimes, even its staff – to create their own or to participate in those hosted by others.”Ben Anderson looks at the impact of ICT in local action. He has found that although “most ICT initiatives support the development of social capital in the community, those already rich in it benefit most.” Not surprisingly he has also found that top-top, centrally managed ICT projects are often less sustainable than those developed at grassroots level.You can download ICT, Social Capital and Voluntary Action as a PDF, as well as view seminar presentations on this subject from both authors.
