Cheap shares: This FTSE 100 stock has soared 24% in a month. What I’d do with it today

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! As a value investor, I’m constantly on the lookout for cheap shares. However, thanks to the coronavirus crisis, the UK stock market is littered with ‘fallen angels’. These are successful firms whose share prices have collapsed, sometimes knocking many billions from company valuations.Cheap shares: several banks fit the billEarlier today, I wrote about how Barclays shares jumped after it produced a much-improved set of quarterly results. Steeply reduced loan losses and higher revenues from its trading division saw the bank’s shares leap by almost a tenth from Wednesday’s close to Friday afternoon. Also, in what’s known as a ‘halo effect’, other UK bank shares rose on Friday in sympathy.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…I have repeatedly written in the past that I view the stock of Lloyds Banking Group and HSBC Holdings as being cheap shares. However, there’s one big UK bank that I have yet to comment on: NatWest Group (LSE: NWG).NatWest shares take a diveAs I write, just before Friday’s close, NatWest shares are trading at 122.65p, up 3.6p (3%) on a positive day for the FTSE 100. But NWG stock has crashed by almost half in the past 12 months, falling 47.5%. Even worse, at their 52-week high on 13 December last year, NatWest shares changed hands for 265p. Thus, the stock has plummeted 53.7% in just 10 months. That’s pretty unpleasant for the bank’s shareholders, to say the least.Back in the spring meltdown, NatWest’s stock dived to 101.75p on 3 April, pushing it onto my ‘cheap shares’ watchlist. Then the stock rose steadily, hitting 137.35p on 5 June, since when it has weakened persistently. At its recent low of 90.54p on 21 September, NatWest’s share price had dipped 11% below its April trough. Ouch.RBS is reborn as NatWestNatWest is the same age as me (52), as we were both born in 1968. NatWest arose from the merger of National Provincial Bank (established 1833) and Westminster Bank (est. 1836). In March 2000, Royal Bank of Scotland acquired NatWest in a hotly contested takeover. The collapse of RBS during the global financial crisis of 2007–09 led to the mega-bank receiving a taxpayer bailout of over £45bn, with its ‘cheap shares’ being almost wiped out.Ditching the now-disgraced RBS name, the group rebranded as NatWest in July. Today, the group operates under names including Royal Bank of Scotland, NatWest, Ulster Bank (in Northern Ireland) and various private banks including Coutts.Cheap shares or value trap?Right now, NatWest shares trade 35.5% above their September low. Yet the company has a market value of just £14.4bn, which is peanuts compared to the peak valuation of the group.NatWest’s Q3 results are due out in a week’s time at 7am next Friday. Like Barclays, I think the bank will report steeply reduced Q3 loan losses, plus improved revenues at its trading division. Alas, its shares cannot be valued on forecast earnings (uncertain) and cash dividends (cancelled). Then again, given that this stock trades at roughly a 60% discount to its net asset value (NAV) per share, I can see ‘cheapness’ in it.In summary, I’d buy and hold these cheap shares today for capital gains and a return to dividends. Also, buying them inside a tax-free ISA will protect future profits and cash payouts from the taxman!

Click here to get access to our presentation, and learn how to get the name of this ‘double agent’! This year’s been difficult for income investors. Many big dividends have been cut and interest rates on cash savings have also fallen. Fortunately, dividend forecasts for 2021 suggest many big payers will return to regular payouts next year.Today, I’m going to look at the dividend forecasts for three top FTSE 100 income stocks — Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY), BP (LSE: BP) and Tesco (LSE: TSCO).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…Lloyds battles regulator for dividend releaseAt the start of April, the UK’s banking regulator ruled that none of the big banks would be allowed to pay a dividend this year. So far, nothing’s changed.However, Lloyds’ third-quarter results suggested that bad debts haven’t risen as quickly as expected so far this year. Lloyds returned to profit during the quarter with a pre-tax profit of £1bn and a return on tangible equity of 7.4% — I see that as a respectable result in the circumstances.The bank’s regulatory CET1 ratio — which measures surplus capital — also looks strong to me, at 15.2%. That’s well above the 11% minimum specified by the regulator. To me, this suggests that unless losses worsen as we head into 2021, the bank should have enough spare capital to resume dividend payments.City analysts seem to agree. Their dividend forecasts suggest a payout of 1.54p per share in 2021, which would give the stock a yield of 5.5%.BP dividend forecast backed by managementSome speculation is involved in attempting to predict how much cash Lloyds will be able to pay out next year. With BP, the picture looks much more certain. Although the exact yield will be affected by the USD/GBP exchange rate, I’m confident the forecast yield of 9% is realistic.The reason for this is that new CEO Bernard Looney recently laid out a new fixed dividend policy, payable at 5.25 cents each quarter for the foreseeable future.Surplus cash over and above this amount will be used to fund share buybacks, not dividend growth. This policy makes sense given that Looney has also committed to cutting oil and gas production by 40% over the next 10 years.Although investment in low carbon energy is going to be ramped up, I think it’s fair to assume BP will become a smaller company. Buying back shares will help to offset BP’s shrinkage and support higher earnings per share.I can see some attractions in BP shares. This is a stock I’d consider owning for income.Every little helps: Tesco lifts payoutThe UK’s biggest supermarket has had a busy year. Sales surged during lockdown. Although Covid-related extra costs kept profits largely flat, I think there’s no doubt it’s been a good year overall for Tesco.New chief executive Ken Murphy seems to agree. One of his first acts after joining was to issue the firm’s interim results. These included news of a 20.8% increase to the interim dividend.This half-year payout will rise to 3.2p per share this year. Analysts expect a payout of 7.9p for the year ending 29 February 2021. This would give a dividend yield of 3.8%.Looking ahead to the firm’s 2021/22 financial year, dividend forecasts suggest the payout will rise by a further 15% to 8.9p. That would give Tesco stock a dividend yield of 4.3%.center_img There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!

Wales v Argentina: The Preview

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Running the show: can Rhys Priestland repay the faith shown by Wales’ coaches in selecting him at fly-half?By Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorWALES HAVE geared up for this autumn’s Dove Men Series with a week of gruelling training in Poland and are now hoping their tip-top conditioning programme will prove decisive in the Tests against Argentina, Samoa, New Zealand and Australia.First up are the Pumas, fresh from their Rugby Championship inauguration, and Wales interim coach Rob Howley knows they will be better for that experience.“The mantra under Warren Gatland is that you only get better by playing Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, and that’s exactly what Argentina have done,” says Howley. “They have world-class, quality players throughout the team. We’re aware of how good Argentina are and they will have benefited from playing those games in the Rugby Championship. They’re a very strong and physical side, but we’ve got to concentrate on what we’re good at.“It’s great to be back playing in the Millennium Stadium – the best stadium in world rugby, our stadium – and the players are looking forward to putting sides under pressure with our passing game.”So what will be the key battlegrounds on Saturday afternoon in Cardiff?Putting his hand up: new prop Aaron JarvisStrictly scrum dancingWith Adam Jones injured, Aaron Jarvis has been given the responsibility of locking the scrum. Will the Wales debutant be able to hold his own against the far more experienced Marcos Ayerza? If he can, he’ll be providing Wales with the necessary platform to launch an exciting back-line and bring their superior fitness to the fore. If not, Argentina will be able to get a foothold in the game and dictate the tempo through their forwards.Ruck and rollAs ever, the breakdown will be key. Many wanted to see a Wales back row featuring both their super sevens – Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric – but Howley has opted for Josh Turnbull over the Osprey.The physicality of the Pumas is sure to have played a part in this decision. With big units like Juan Fernandez Lobbe, who will win his 50th cap, and Juan Leguizamon in the opposition back row, Wales want to ensure they won’t be overpowered at the breakdown. Brute force rather than subtlety will be key to asserting pressure early on, preventing the Pumas from slowing the ball down – and then winning those vital turnovers. NOT FOR FEATURED Wing wizard: Puma Gonzalo CamachoCreative streakMuch has been made of the selection of Rhys Priestland over Dan Biggar at fly-half. Yes, Priestland has struggled with his goalkicking this season but when you have the unerring Leigh Halfpenny in your side your fly-half’s success rate from the tee is far less important.Wales believe Priestland is the one who can get the best out of the back-line so he has the ten shirt. It’s now a case of whether he vindicates the selection or falters under the pressure. The in-form back three of Halfpenny, Alex Cuthbert and George North will be looking to help him do the former.As for the Pumas, Gonzalo Camacho was one of the standout players of the Rugby Championship, constantly becoming involved and making darting runs. Still, Argentina managed only seven tries in their six games and, with a kicking success rate of less than 50% in the tournament, will need to up their attacking game to topple the Grand Slam champs.Prediction: If Aaron Jarvis can gain parity at scrum time, Wales look to have the back-line to overcome a powerful Pumas team. Wales to win by ten.WALES v ARGENTINA, Saturday 10 November, 2.30pm, Millennium Stadium, Live on BBC1WALES: Leigh Halfpenny; Alex Cuthbert, Scott Williams, Jamie Roberts, George North; Rhys Priestland, Tavis Knoyle; Gethin Jenkins, Matthew Rees, Aaron Jarvis, Alun Wyn Jones, Ian Evans, Josh Turnbull, Sam Warburton (captain), Toby Faletau.Replacements: Richard Hibbard, Ryan Bevington, Paul James, Rob McCusker, Justin Tipuric, Mike Phillips, James Hook, Liam Williams.ARGENTINA: Juan Martin Hernandez; Gonzalo Camacho, Gonzalo Tiesi, Felipe Contepomi, Juan Imhoff; Nicolas Sanchez, Martin Landajo; Marcos Ayerza, Eusebio Guinazu, Juan Figallo, Manuel Carizza, Juan Francisco Cabello, Leonardo Senatore, Juan Martin Leguizamon, Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe (captain).

At least 15 journalists arrested during DRC demonstrations

Some of the journalists were physically attacked. center_img Receive email alerts Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma The demonstrations were called by civic society groups to press the authorities to publish a calendar for elections, as envisaged in accords reached last December under which President Joseph Kabila is supposed to stand down. Demonstrations have been banned for the past year and the security forces dispersed yesterday’s with the help of a great deal of teargas and, according to some sources, live rounds. Most of the detained journalists were eventually released but their photos and videos were usually deleted first. “We firmly condemn this police crackdown, which did not spare journalists who were just doing their job, said Tshivis T. Tshivuadi, the secretary-general of Journalist in Danger (JED), an RSF partner organization. We call on the newly appointed police chiefs to respect, and to ensure that their personnel respect, the work of journalists during political demonstrations.” The BBC’s Lei Wera, Radio France Internationale’s Swahili correspondent, Daniel Chube Ngorombi, and Justin Kabunga of Congo Synthèse were arrested in Goma along with a photographer who was not identified and were held for two hours. The police temporarily confiscated Wera’s camera and sound recorder and deleted what she had recorded. In Bukavu, police used violence to arrest reporter Nino Esther and cameraman Christian Safari, who work for Canal Futur, a TV channel owned by opposition politician Vital Kamerhe. The police took them to an unidentified location and forced them delete all their video footage before releasing them. Seven journalists working for VoxCongo, Radio Okapi and the Xinhua and Anadolu news agencies were arrested in Kinshasa, were subjected to intimidation and were confined in a school yard until released after Kinshasa’s new police chief, Gen. Sylvano Kasongo Kitenge, intervened. RSF has just learned that two other journalists, Merveille Kakule of Radio Soleil and Georges Kisando of Graben university radio, were harassed and manhandled in the northeastern city of the Butembo and their equipment was confiscated. “The sole aim of these arrests was to prevent the journalists from doing their job and covering what were historic events for the DRC, said Clea Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. The crackdown was part of the government’s attempts to suppress all democratic discourse. These attempts must stop now.” Ever since January 2015, when the National Assembly passed an electoral law amendment allowing the authorities to postpone elections originally envisaged for November 2016, journalists have been the targets of violence and intimidation when trying to cover discontent with this decision. RSF and JED issued a joint release last week condemning the government’s decision to restrict the movements of foreign reporters. In June, RFI reported that the authorities had not renewed the accreditation of its Kinshasa-based correspondent, Sonia Rolley. The DRC has seen a constant declined in media freedom for the past ten years and is ranked 154th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.
