Enter Your Email Address Shares in Tui Travel (LSE: TUI) have struggled to move higher over the past 24 months. However, after this turbulence, it looks as if the business is finally gaining traction.Tui has been floored by the grounding of Boeing’s 737 MAX plane. Towards the end of last year, the company warned the fallout from this could cost it up to €400m in 2020, if the plane doesn’t return to service by April.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…DiversificationIt’s impossible to tell if the plane will be allowed to fly again in the next few months. So, from an investment perspective, it might not be sensible to bet on this happening. Nevertheless, the rest of Tui’s business seems to be performing exceptionally well.The company has also benefited from the collapse of rival Thomas Cook. The world’s largest travel operator has been able to grab customers away from the failed business since its demise last year.Recent trading updates from Tui show just how much of an impact management efforts to try and stimulate growth have had.Its fiscal first-quarter results, published earlier this week, showed a 7% increase in turnover for the period. In addition, the company’s loss over the vital winter period declined by 6% and the loss per share improved by 8%.Travel companies tend to make a loss over the winter because clients tend to travel and pay for holidays in the summer. Tui has been trying to reduce the seasonality by growing out its cruise business.In fact, the cruise operation was the only profitable segment of operations in its first quarter, apart from the Holiday Experiences business.To this end, Tui recently announced the acquisition of Hapag-Lloyd Cruises for an enterprise value of €1.2bn. This should help the business further reduce seasonality and improve overall earnings growth.UndervaluedA further reduction in earnings volatility could drive the share price much higher. At the time of writing, the stock is dealing at a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 9.6 compared to the sector average of 18.2. That implies the shares offer a wide margin of safety at current levels.It’s also dealing at a price-to-sales ratio (P/S) of just 0.3, compared to the industry average of 1.5. These metrics imply that shares in the holiday business could be undervalued by as much as 400%. On top of this potential for capital gains, Tui also offers a dividend yield of 4%. The distribution is covered 2.6 times by earnings per share. That suggests Tui has plenty of headroom to increase the distribution further. There’s also plenty of scope to continue reinvesting profits back into the business.  As such, now could be a great time for investors to snap up shares in this travel business at its discount valuation. The company is driving with the brakes on at the moment as it deals with the costs from the 737 MAX grounding.When this issue is dealt with, earnings could take off. That could drive a substantial re-rating of the shares from current levels based on Tui’s current undervaluation. 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.last_img read more

More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” With the 2020 stock market crash in full flow, there are three major decisions I’m taking to protect my future wealth.Stockpile cashSitting on your hands is never easy as an investor. P/E ratios — a measure of fair value — are falling through the floor. Shares that were trading a 30 or 40 times last year’s earnings are now at 15 or 20. You see prices falling and think, “It’s a fire sale! Time to click the buy button!“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…But wait. I think this market has further to fall. To paraphrase crisis analyst Michele Wucker, the coronavirus is not a black swan event. It’s a grey rhino. Highly visible, coming straight at us and about to smash everything in its path.I’m not selling the high-yield FTSE 100 companies I’ve held for years. That would undo all the compound gains I’ve worked so hard to protect.I’m still drip-feeding spare cash into my Stocks and Shares ISA. But instead of piling into high-growth shares I’m watching and waiting.Yes, I might lose out on the slim possibility of gains from some risky bargains. But I’m more likely to make profits based on facts, not blind luck. I’m not trusting my family’s future to blind luck.Refine your watchlistWe’ve just seen Donald Trump ban most visitors from flying to the US from Europe.We’ve just seen Italy lockdown its entire 60 million population. Governments are closing schools, pubs, restaurants, and banning the public from sporting events and large gatherings. If some haven’t done it yet, they will do soon.Clearly travel companies, hospitality and tourism businesses, and airlines are going to be decimated. That means the likes of IAG, TUI, easyJet and cruise operators like Carnival will fall further.Sales and profits will be badly hurt. And as share prices plummet, dividend yields rise.Companies that are holding lots of debt that also pay out a large proportion of their earnings will have to cut their dividend. It’s inevitable. I’d steer clear of businesses with low dividend cover. That’s the number of times that dividend payments are covered by earnings.There are sectors that are more recession-proof than others. Healthcare is one of them. Drug development companies will become ever more important in the months and years ahead. FTSE 100 pharma companies like GlaxoSmithKline, with its strong economic moat and unimpeachable trademarks and patents would be one of my top picks.Think long termOne of the most sensible (if slightly terrifying) things I’ve read recently is that the market bottom — where stock prices start to turn around — will only come when investors lose all hope.But if you are truly investing for the long term, getting caught up in the panic does not help. Zoom out to look at the bigger picture and you are more likely to profit. So making the occasional buy on stock market down days will still yield positive long-term results.Some businesses could disappear in a puff of smoke. Be smart. Choose wisely. And watch closely.center_img Tom Rodgers | Thursday, 12th March, 2020 Tom Rodgers has no current position in the shares mentioned.

Tesla shares have fallen over 20%. Should I buy now?

first_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Jay Yao | Friday, 26th March, 2021 | More on: TSLA Image source: Tesla Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) shares are off more than 20% from their highs. While Tesla shares traded for around $880 near the beginning of the year, they closed at $640.39 per share on 25 March. Is the recent dip an opportunity? Given the decline, here’s what I would do.Tesla’s the market leader right nowTo me, there is no question that Tesla’s the market leader in electric vehicles (EV) right now.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…Given the company’s head start versus other major automakers, Tesla has substantial market share in the sector. According to some estimates, Tesla had around 80% market share in the US EV market in the first half of 2020. Tesla also has substantial EV market share in China and Europe too. With that market share, Tesla has more scale and can produce batteries that are cheaper than many competitors. With cheaper batteries, Tesla can sell EVs at more competitive prices and potentially gain even more scale.The EV sector itself is attractive given the expected growth in the industry thanks to government mandates and more competitive prices. According to some estimates, the market for electric vehicles could grow to $803bn by 2027 from $162bn in 2019.Tesla also has some other key advantages in electric vehicles. Tesla’s Elon Musk is a great CEO in my view given how he has been able to achieve so much despite all the challenges. With its higher market cap, Tesla can also potentially afford to hire more of Silicon Valley’s best and brightest to develop products. In the future, Elon Musk can potentially use Tesla’s market cap to buy companies with promising technologies that could help it grow faster as well.What I’d doWhile Tesla is the current leader and has a lot of advantages, Tesla will have a lot of competition in the future. Companies like Volkswagen and GM are taking EVs very seriously, with Volkswagen investing substantial capital to try to catch up and even surpass Tesla at some point. In autonomous driving, other companies that have more financial resources than Tesla such as Alphabet are also competitors.Tesla’s valuation is also still very high. Elon Musk himself said that the stock was ‘too high’ in May of last year when the stock traded for around $780 per share. This was before Tesla did a five-for-one split in August 2020, so Musk was referring to a price of around $156 per share based on the current share count.Whether Tesla shares offer value at the current prices depends on how well the company does in the future. Although I don’t think Tesla will have 80% market share in 10 years, I think the company will be among the leaders. Whether that’s enough to justify the present valuation or to increase it, I’m not really sure.All in all, I like Tesla’s attributes and I think it has great potential, but I feel Tesla shares are too richly valued given its current operations. While I might change my mind in the future if certain favorable developments were to occur, I have Tesla on my ‘watchlist’ instead.

Shelter switches its mobile services to Qubic Group plc

first_img Shelter, the housing and homelessness charity has switched its service for 500 mobile telephones and 50 Blackberry devices from Vodafone to an O2 service provided by Qubic Group plc, the specialist voice and data communications company. Shelter required a mobile solution that offered increased flexibility and greater value-for-money to help maximise resources available to its core services. The charity went through a rigorous tendering process and identified an O2 solution via Qubic Group plc.Qubic Group plc proposed a line-rental free SIM only solution for the voice handsets and supplied Blackberry devices as a mobile data solution. The key was flexibility for Shelter to be able to add, move, change, swap and remove devices to aid staff to undertake their roles effectively, together with improved value for money. A web based portal allows Shelter to self manage its entire mobile estate allocating devices to staff and staff to call centres whenever required.Chris Papa, Qubic Group plc commented “Mobile is becoming an increasingly important element of the converged communications strategies of organisations we deal with: Shelter is no exception. We are delighted to be able to assist Shelter with a robust and cost effective solution, in delivering its mobile services”.Andy Christophi, Head of Facilties at Shelter added, “The mobile solution delivered by Qubic Group plc, has not only saved Shelter a significant sum of money which we are able to direct to our core services, but we have also significantly benefitted from a bespoke account management platform, improved customer service and a more flexible approach and understanding of our requirements”.—Ends—Qubic Group plcConceived in 1994 a specialist voice and data integrator, Qubic designs, installs and supports converged communications networks this includes; IP telephone systems, wired and wireless Local Area Networks, telephone lines, mobile communications broadband and Enterprise grade IP Wide Area Networking.

The regime did not hesitate to increase salaries in order to divert any threat of social unrest. Determined to take whatever action necessary to monitor the population’s mood, it publicly took charge of the Internet surveillance system.Colonel Abdul Rahim bin Shafi, director of the Interior Ministry’s organised crime department, told Reuters in August 2011 that the police are keeping a close watch on social networks such as Twitter and Facebook: “All media are being monitored, including social media. People can express their opinion without violating (social) norms,” he said. He further added: “Twitter and Facebook were invented to make the world easier but if they were used adversely, the perpetrators will be punished by law.” The authorities’ target is clear: “whoever spreads false or malicious news or statements or spreading propaganda which could upset public security could spend between one month to three years in jail.” The senior official admitted that the large community of foreign workers who have already gone on strike to demand better working conditions is under particularly close scrutiny.Arbitrary arrests to indimidate potential dissidentsTo discourage potential dissidents from relaying calls for political reform, the regime arrested five netizens nicknamed the “UAE 5” in April 2011. They include the well-known blogger Ahmed Mansour, administrator of the pro-democracy discussion forum Al-Hewar (“the Dialogue”), blogger Farhad Salem Al-Shehh, co-administrator of this forum, Nasser bin Ghaith, a writer and professor at Abu Dhabi’s Université Paris-Sorbonne, and human rights activists Hassan Ali Al-Khamis and Ahmed Abdul Khaleq. All of them expressed their opinions freely online and had also signed a petition bearing a hundred or so signatures which urged the authorities to enact some reforms. Ahmed Mansour was arrested after he granted an interview to the Al Hurra TV channel.Bloggers and their families have been the focus of particularly violent death threats and smear campaigns orchestrated by the authorities in the media and on the Internet. Those who tried to defend them incurred, in turn, the regime’s wrath. Twitter user Rowda Hamed was threatened and summoned for supporting their views.These netizens’ trial was such a travesty of justice that they refused to appear in court. They went on a hunger strike to protest against the bad treatment and poor conditions of their detention. On 27 November 2011, they were finally given a two-year prison sentence for “insulting Emirate leaders” and “calling for anti-government demonstrations,” except for Ahmed Mansour, who received a three-year prison sentence. They were pardoned the very next day by the Head of State, Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al-Nahyan, and later released. A coalition of NGOs continues to demand that their convictions be expunged from their records and that their equipment and passports be returned to them.At the same time, the BlackBerry saga took a new turn. New restrictions were imposed in May 2011 on smartphones manufactured by Research in Motion (RIM). The authorities decided to limit access to the highly secure BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) to only a few companies which can account for over 20 users – a decision likely to irritate some CEOs because it discriminates against small companies. The entrepreneurs’ view of the country’s prospects has been tainted by the regime’s intensified control over society in reaction to Arab Spring. News to go further United Arab EmiratesMiddle East – North Africa The UAE government has taken advantage of the region’s tense political climate to tighten its control over information and communications in the country. Netizen members of the “UAE 5” group, incarcerated for several months, learned the hard way that the authorities’ priority is to maintain the regime’s stability, and, if necessary, is fully prepared to set a few harsh examples.

“It’s Never Too Late to Recognize Fallen Heroes”

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Earlier this year, Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) worked with Veteran’s groups to author AJR 33 – a resolution that urges the U.S. Department of Defense to include the names of the 74 fallen sailors of the Destroyer U.S.S. Frank E. Evans (21 of whom are from California) on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.Now the CA Department of Veterans Affairs (Cal Vet) Commission has voted to approve adding the names of the 21 fallen heroes from California to the California Vietnam Memorial Wall.“As the author of AJR 33, I wholeheartedly support the addition of the California sailors from the U.S.S. Frank Evans to be inscribed on the California Vietnam Veterans Memorial,” Assemblymember Holden wrote in a letter of support. “The outstanding services of these American sailors during the Vietnam War are without dispute; they died in service to their country. Combat zones were ill-defined during those turbulent times and should not be used to prevent memorializing these fallen heroes.”The men died when their ship collided with an Australian aircraft carrier some 110 miles from the Vietnam combat zone. The inclusion of the dead sailors’ names has been overlooked in the past because of the technicality that the destroyer was “not within the designated combat zone”. Holden’s AJR 33 urges the United States Department of Defense to recognize the fallen sailors and include their names on the Memorial in Washington, D.C.Pasadena resident, Tim Wendler, whose father was one of the sailors killed that day, was overjoyed with the California decision. “In the hearts and minds of the families, shipmates and survivors of the USS Evans, the application of the eligibility standard has not been fair. This action helps to honor their memory and bring closure to their families.. We are grateful to the Cal Vet Commission for their support and the recognition of the fallen sailors of the USS Frank Evans.” Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Your email address will not be published.

The City of Pasadena c0mmissioned the outside review of the shooting by the Office of Independent Review Group. The officers and their union filed suit trying to stop any release of its McDade shooting report; in November, Judge James C. Chalfant ordered release of a 20% redacted copy of the Report. The officers appealed the ruling.In mid-March, the Officers’ attorneys contradictorily quoted 1 ½ pages of verbatim excerpts from the very report that they were trying to suppress in a publicly-filed brief that was served on their opponents; nine days later, they got a sealing-clawback order from the Court which brought outraged objections from the national media and free-press activists. Last Friday, the Court vacated that order.On Monday, civil rights attorney Skip Hickambottom today filed a motion to dismiss the entire appeal for his clients – Kendrec McDade’s mother Anya Slaughter, the Pasadena NAACP, ACT, the Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance and ACLU activist Kris Ockershauser.Hickambottom’s brief argues that the disclosure a significant part of the Report waived any arguable privilege of the officers and mooted their appeal because now 100 per cent of the Report should be released. The officers’ attorneys assert their disclosure was “inadvertent.”  Hickambottom’s motion disputes their claim, calling it “preposterous.” Make a comment Community News Top of the News last_img read more
