Should I buy Cineworld shares today?

first_img Rupert Hargreaves | Sunday, 31st January, 2021 | More on: CINE 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. Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Cineworld (LSE: CINE) shares have been tossed around over the past year. Rolling lockdowns around the world have caused the company some severe headaches. It does not look as if these issues will go away any time soon. However, assuming the pandemic is only a temporary challenge, the group could make a comeback. And if it can stage a recovery, I think the stock looks cheap at current levels, and it could be an exciting acquisition for my portfolio. 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…Are Cineworld shares cheap? Shares in the cinema company do look cheap at first glance. The stock is changing hands at around 80p today, compared to a price of nearly 190p a year ago. But this price action does not tell us much about the company’s fundamental performance. Indeed, for much of the past 12 months, most of the group’s cinemas around the world have been closed. That means Cineworld has not been able to generate any income. I think that justifies a significantly lower share price than this time last year. As such, I think the company’s future will be closely tied to the world’s success in fighting the pandemic. As long as its locations remain closed, the group will continue to lose money as costs will exceed revenues. At the same time, the company has a tremendous amount of debt. Net-debt-to-EBITDA stood at around two times towards the end of last year.Generally speaking, I think that if a company has such a ratio of more than two, it is a risky purchase. On that basis, Cineworld shares appear to me to be an incredibly risky proposition. It is certainly not one for the risk-averse. Recovery potentialYet while there are plenty of risks attached to Cineworld right now, I feel the company also has plenty of opportunities. For example, its market capitalisation is currently around £1bn. In 2019, the last full year of uninterrupted business for the organisation, Cineworld produced a net profit of £180m. If it can return to this profitability level, I estimate the corporation is trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 5.6. Historically, the stock has traded at a forward P/E of around 15. I think this shows the potential that Cineworld shares have in the long term. However, these figures are only estimates. There’s no guarantee the business will ever be able to return to 2019 levels of profitability. There’s also no guarantee the company’s cash resources will be enough to keep the lights on until the pandemic recedes. Therefore, I’m going to keep an eye on Cineworld shares with the target of adding them to my portfolio when there’s more clarity on when the business will be able to reopen. It’s clear to me that the stock could generate high returns when owned as part of a diversified portfolio, but it also comes with plenty of risks. I’m watching it closely.

This is the first step in a program to develop links between Anglican hospitals in different parts of the world. These links are designed to provide conduits for the supply of medical equipment, provision of clinical training, and development in hospital management systems.“The profile of Anglican hospitals is rising both within the church and amongst health policy makers,” said Lee Hogan, co-chair of the Anglican Health Network and organizer of this trip. “Strengthening links between these hospitals will support our common mission to bring improved health care to those communities that Anglicans serve.”Following a trip to Berega in May 2011, Lee recruited officers from St. Luke’s and Baylor who can provide key skills and experience to address priorities outlined by hospital director Isaac Mgego. At the top of the list is the development of maternal and newborn services. A high percentage of women in this rural district give birth at home without any medical supervision. Dr. Kjersti Aagaard, professor of fetal and maternal Health at Baylor College of Medicine has extensive experience throughout Africa and will give attention to this challenge.John and Mair Pugh run the associated nursing school. Cheryl Lindy, director of nurse education for St. Luke’s will share her experience in international nurse exchange programs and learn from them about the methods by which local nurses can be recruited and trained.Other visitors include Dr. John Joe, chief medical information officer at St. Luke’s who has experience in both family medicine and general surgery and has participated in previous medical missions in both South East Asia and Africa. Debbie Mahannah, vice president for human resources will be working on a variety of Anglican Health Network programs including the supply of surplus medical equipment from hospitals of the Episcopal Church. This trip will help her to establish relationships and systems within Tanzania to assist in getting the deliveries moving.The Anglican Health Network is encouraging Anglican hospitals throughout the communion to recognize the value of collaboration and mutual learning.

Responsibility for the gun attack on the Bacha Khan University in Charsadda remains unclear. One Pakistani Taliban spokesman claimed responsibility; but this was later denied by another Taliban leader, according to BBC News.This morning’s attack is just the latest in a string of attacks to hit the country in the past 12 months.In January 2015, 40 people were killed after a bomb went off at a Shia mosque in Shikarpur district, Sindh province. A month later at least 20 people were killed at another Shia mosque, this time in Peshawar, after it was stormed by militants with guns and grenades.In May a gun attack on a bus carrying Ismaili Shia Muslims in Karachi resulted in the deaths of 45 people. In September, an attack on an air force base in Peshawar left 29 people dead. Last month 24 people were killed at a clothes market in the Kurram tribal region.Just last week, 15 people – 14 of them security agents – were killed when a suicide bomber targeted a Polio clinic in the city of Quetta.Previously, a Taliban attack on a church in Peshawar in 2013 left 127 people dead and 250 injured; and in 2014, 141 people were murdered – 132 of them school children – when terrorists attacked a school in the city.“It is very, very sad and really difficult for us to be going through all these atrocities and problems and terrorism,” the Bishop of Peshawar, the Rt Revd Humphrey Peters said.In an interview with Aaron James for the UK’s Premier Christian Radio, Bishop Peters said that today’s attack in Charsadda – part of the diocese of Peshawar – had left him not knowing what to say “except to pray and ask people to pray for us.“We are under the terrible grip of terrorism. . . We are very disturbed about it.”The bishop, who was in Charsadda earlier this year for a New Year service on 1 January, said that the security forces in Pakistan have urged people to “be very careful [and] be very alert.”He revealed that schools in the region were closed earlier this week because of a security alert and that rumours about an attack were circulating yesterday. “And today this thing has happened.”He continued: “Things are not decreasing. Always we are under threat.”The bishop described the victims of today’s attack as innocent people who were preparing for a function at 11 am when the terrorists struck at around 9.30 am.“What we have said to everyone in the churches and everywhere is please start praying, especially for the bereaved families; and especially the people who have lost their lives and people who are injured.“People who get injured are really in a very bad condition. There are still people who were injured in the [2013] church attack; and people who were injured in the [2014] school attack – many of them are still on their beds.“So their lives become really . . . it is very difficult for them to survive and to live their lives properly.“So we have asked every congregation and everyone that they should start remembering and start praying for these families who have lost their beloved ones and who have got injured. . . And so, through you, it is our earnest request to everyone – all the Christians, and all faith-abiding people, that they should be remembering Pakistan, and especially our area, our region, in their prayers.” An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Tampa, FL Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Asia This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Submit a Job Listing Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Submit a Press Release Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Hopkinsville, KY Featured Events Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

The garage doors and the main door of the house are made out of cumarú wood and compound an element that wraps up the two main volumes.

This access hall that has a cubic proportion ( 8.5m x 8.5m x 8.5m ) is “sliced” diagonally by a triangular water mirror. The stairs that go up to the first floor fly over the water and reach out to a crying water wall that pours its water into the mirrorwhere Manuel Marin’s sculptoric group called “Allegoria de la Pintura, la Escultura y la Arquitectura” is found. Only a huge mirror and a large bench decorate this space.Save this picture!© Marcos GarciaPlater stucco painted in almond color covers the walls, except the crying water wall that is covered with chocolate travertine marble that comes in to the gallery from the house’s facade and some features in orange stucco and cumarú wood.Save this picture!© Marcos GarciaFor all the indoor public areas, the floor is made out of beige ivory marble in large format ( 2.2m x 1.8m ), cumarú wood decking in the exterior areas and porcelain tiles in the kitchen and service areas; all the private areas including the bedrooms, library and gym have hardwood cumaru flooring. Meanwhile in the houses facade, the access front plaza is covered in black volcanic stone ( piedra de recinto ) that links the house with the existing stone walls on the lot and the large volume in chocolate travertine marble.Save this picture!© Marcos GarciaThe rest of the outdoor facades are covered in stucco painted in almond color ( never white ), except for a slot that contains a window and a cantilever parasol to protect it, that are painted in terracota red, this color unifies the main facade with the color of Ayamonte’s walls.

Trans Liberation #NoJusticeNoPride

first_imgOn June 25, the Trans Liberation Collective led a coalition of accomplices to shut down the Chicago Pride Parade for fifteen minutes, demanding an end to the parade as it exists in its current form, and for a celebration to take its place to bring Pride back to its roots, honoring trans women of color and recognizing the police as an oppositional force to queer and trans liberation. TLC groups included the BTGNC (Black, Trans, Gender Nonconforming) Collective, Black Lives Matter Chicago, Jewish Voice for Peace, Assata’s Daughters, the Pilsen ­Alliance and others.Pilsen Alliance created puppets of Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera to march along with the group of protesters, visibly bringing them into the space and centering their legacy as the mothers of Pride. A statement from organizers declared: “Trans people are the vanguard of the queer liberation movement. We demand more resources, facilities, funding, and access for Black and Brown trans people in Chicago!” A full list of TLC demands, including solidarity with other freedom struggles, is at tinyurl.com/y6vscnqyFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Atlanta Pride says ‘Free Chelsea Manning!’

first_imgFor over three hours on Oct. 12, tens of thousands of Atlanta Pride marchers passed by stationary teams on both sides of Peachtree Street with banners and leaflets calling for freedom for Chelsea Manning, the anti-war whistleblower.Upon spotting the banners reading, “Free Chelsea Manning! Jail War Criminals,”countless participants reached for flyers, cheered, gave a thumbs-up or chanted “Free Chelsea.”The flyer promoted an Oct. 29  teach-in on Chelsea Manning’s heroic actions in the context of broader anti-imperialist and anti-repression struggles, particularly by queer and trans people.On Oct. 11, the same banners were carried in the annual trans march that saw  hundreds of people filling multiple blocks of midtown Atlanta streets.In 2010, the military intelligence analyst then known as Bradley Manning released some 750,000 documents to Wikileaks, revealing the lies and misinformation being told to the U.S. public about the war in Iraq.Manning was jailed, court-martialed in 2013 and sentenced to 35 years in prison. Manning announced her transition to Chelsea Manning while in federal custody. Her sentence was commuted to time served in 2017.She has steadfastly refused since early 2019 to testify before a secret grand jury seeking the extradition of Julian Assange, the publisher of those documents. Manning is currently being held in an Alexandria, Va., jail on contempt charges.For the many who were unaware of the current case of Chelsea Manning, the solidarity action by activists of Atlanta’s trans and anti-war organizations brought needed information.The Atlanta Pride festivities rank among the largest in the U.S. with LGBTQ2+ people coming from across the U.S. and other countries to celebrate the diversity and resilience of their community to overcome state and social discrimination and repression.Scores of major international corporations as well as local businesses had contingents of their LGBTQ2+ workers clad in company-themed Pride T-shirts, which dominated the march. There was only one, very visible union marching, the International Alliance of Theater Stage Employees. The Chelsea Manning unit represented progressive politics in a sea of corporatization.Additionally, students from area high schools and colleges, congregants from numerous churches, members of LGBTQ2+ service organizations, decorated floats from clubs and restaurants, several LGBTQ2+ bands and multiple politicians with their supporters marched in intermittent rain past tens of thousands of energetic and loud parade watchers. Workers World Party is proud to be a sponsoring organization of these efforts to raise awareness of  Chelsea Manning’s important role in exposing the war crimes of the U.S.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Man wanted for “mental application warrant” near Bluebonnet Circle taken into custody

first_imgFacebook Twitter + posts ReddIt printStreets leading to a house in the 3500 block of Park Ridge Drive were blocked off Wednesday while Fort Worth police and Tarrant County Sheriff’s offices took a man into custody on a “mental application warrant.”Police began searching for the man late Wednesday morning. At one point, at least 15 patrol cars were in the area because the man refused to come out of his house, said Terry Grishman, the media contact at the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office.Will Henderson, who lives a few doors down from the man’s house, saw the arrest.About 30 officers arrived and were pointing guns at the house before the man was brought outside at 1:45 p.m., he said.Henderson described the man as “docile” when he was handcuffed on the porch and escorted into a squad car. He also said he was wearing something that looked like an orange jumpsuit.“We have to take the greatest amount of precaution against anything happening,” Grishman said.Marcus Povero, the Public Information Officer for the Fort Worth police, said while the search was active students and staff at nearby McLean Middle School couldn’t enter or exit the campus.He added, the man had “nothing to do with school whatsoever.”“There is no reason for neighborhood to be alarmed,” Povero said.

It’s election day in Texas

first_img Twitter WhatsApp WhatsApp Local NewsGovernment Previous articleCHAPMAN: The irrelevant 2nd amendmentNext articleNew bond issue, re-zoning talks begin admin Pinterest It’s election day in Texas Vote logo It’s election day in Texas and voters in Odessa have state and county offices on the ballot with everything from who will represent this district in Washington down to county party chairs.Social media bickering has heated up particularly in some GOP races that will be decided today as there are no Democratic challengers.The race for county judge between Chris Fostel and Debi Hays and the race for county commissioner for Precinct 2 between incumbent Greg Simmons and challenger Brandon Tate have both seen a large social media push in the last few days.Tate’s and Simmons’ Facebook pages had supporters of each candidate continuing to argue the merits for their candidate – while many also attacked Tate or Simmons.The county judge race was a particularly commented upon race over the weekend.Fostel’s wife, Gabby Fostel, took to the Odessa American’s Facebook page to complain following the news Friday that her husband had missed a campaign finance report deadline.“As the spouse I can say I am ready for this to be over. It’s amazing how ugly things can get. How slanted a local paper can obviously be. I guess you never really know how dirty local politics can be until you enter that world. It’s no wonder honest, straightforward people can’t get elected in Odessa. There is so much money feeding the corruption,” the post stated.In total, 5,817 (both in-person voting and mail ballots) were cast during early voting.Ector County Elections Administrator Lisa Sertuche last week said overall early voting totals were still lower than she would like to see, but the turnout ended up being a little better than the primaries in 2014.
