At first glance, Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) shares look cheap from a price perspective. The stock is currently changing hands at 98p, significantly below its five-year high of 378p. As a value investor, this has attracted my attention. I like to buy shares in companies when they’re trading at low prices and, right now, it looks to me as if shares in the aerospace group are in that territory.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…Buying stocks at low levels doesn’t guarantee profits. In fact, it doesn’t guarantee anything. Still, it’s a strategy I’m perfectly comfortable following because I’m aware of the level of risk it entails. It may not be suitable for all investors. Rolls-Royce shares under pressureBefore I buy any company, I always try to understand why the stock is trading in the way it is. Rolls-Royce is under tremendous pressure. The pandemic has caused the group’s revenues to plunge, and cash is flying out the door faster than it’s arriving.  According to the company’s latest trading update, it expects a cash outflow of £2bn in 2021. This is only a rough guide.The vast majority of group sales come from aircraft engine maintenance contracts. These are based on the number of flying hours each unit records. So, the more time Rolls’ engines are in the sky, the higher its revenues. Alongside its latest trading update, the company warned there’s “significant uncertainty” surrounding the global aviation industry’s recovery. That means its £2bn cash outflow projection may be subject to significant revisions. To offset the uncertainty, management cut around 7,000 jobs in 2020. It’s planning 9,000 job losses in total by the end of 2022. Total cost-saving efforts so far have shaved £1bn off group expenses. Improving outlookAll of the above suggests a pretty terrible outlook for Rolls-Royce shares. But, over the next three to five years, the company’s fortunes could improve. Management believes a recovery in flying hours could see free cash flow hit £750m by 2022. If this target is realised, it could generate renewed investor interest towards the shares. Although there’s just as much uncertainty surrounding this target as the numbers outlined above, the final figures could end up being much better or worse than expected. Still, Rolls has plenty of money available to support its turnaround. After raising additional funds from investors last year, the company has £9bn of liquid cash. This should help the business keep the lights on for 2021, at least. That’s based on current management cash outflow projections, and could be subject to change. The group also has a strong defence business, which has helped bring in much-needed cash flow over the past 12 months. Also on the plus side, the company has a strong balance sheet and is expected to return to cash flow probability next year. On the negative side, these forecasts aren’t guaranteed, and every day that passes, Rolls-Royce is burning cash. As such, I’d like to wait and see what happens to the business before I buy Rolls-Royce shares. If the company can meet its target to produce a positive free cash flow by 2022, it could be cheap. However, with the company warning of that “significant uncertainty” surrounding its projections, recovery is by no means guaranteed.  Should I buy Rolls-Royce shares?

Reporters Without Borders condemns unfair trial of Du Daobin

first_img News RSF_en Help by sharing this information It was not the first time that Du Daobin had been deprived of a lawyer. One 3 November 2003, his counsel Li Qingqiang had his licence withdrawn by his own law firm, preventing him from defending his client. Du then chose Mo Shaoping, only to be in turn deprived of his services.Background :Du Daobin, 40, was arrested on his way home on 28 October 2003. Police seized computer equipment, hand-written letters, address books and foreign-published books. They also “strongly advised” his wife, Xia Chun-rong, and 12-year-old son to have no contact with foreign journalists. Police also told Xia that her husband had gone “too far”.Du posted a large number of pacifist articles on the Internet arguing for greater freedom of expression in China. He actively called for the release of student Liu Di, who was imprisoned for posting articles on online forums calling for democracy in China. She was released on 28 November 2003 after more than a year of imprisonment without trial.The prosecutor’s office in Xiaogan told police on 10 February 2003 that there was not enough evidence to charge Du with “incitement to subversion”. His file thus went back to the Public Security office. A week later, after nearly four months in custody, Du’s arrest was made official. He was then charged by Hubei province public security office with “incitement to subversion and to the overthrow of the Chinese socialist system”, in relation to around 30 online articles. Follow the news on China Reporters Without Borders described as “shocking” the opening on 18 May of the trial of Du Daobin for “incitement to subversion” before the intermediate peoples’ court in the city of Xiaogan, Hubei province, central China.Du’s lawyer Mo Shaoping who was only notified on 14 May found it impossible to reach the city in time and Du was therefore appointed a lawyer, Li Zongyi. This lawyer refused to enter a not guilty plea, despite the demands of the cyberdissident. The trial was held behind closed doors.The international press freedom organisation condemned the denial of his right to a fair trial. “The authorities forced Du to plead guilty, showing their willingness to employ any means to silence dissident voices,” it said.

The Minister totally misjudged the situation.Deputy Collins said that from day one, “I have called for a meal voucher scheme to be set up for farmers affected.“Teagasc has been advising farmers to prioritise the feeding of meal concentrates to plug the gap. As it’s a grain based product, there is no shortage of supply and it would reduce the demand for fodder.“However, the Minister’s short-sighted scheme completely ignored this, focusing solely on fodder transportation, therefore driving up the demand, and the price of hay and silage bales nationwide.“Minister Creed must step up to the mark and realise that farmers are genuinely struggling. This government’s anti-rural attitude cannot be allowed to persist”, Deputy Collins added.See more news here Email Advertisement Linkedinlast_img read more
