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? Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

Webber has this week undergone surgery for an injury to his arm and will miss the remainder of the season.John Hart also returns to the starting line-up at number 8 and captains the side, while Sam Jones, another England U20 star, plays at openside flanker – those two replacing Andy Powell and Serge Betsen who are both carrying knocks.

‘We stand with the Europe that is rebelling. Let’s throw out the Monti government.’Photo: RifondazioneRome — Some 150,000 people marched through the rainy streets of Rome on Oct. 27 for a national “No Monti Day” demonstration against Italian Premier Mario Monti and his right-wing, neoliberalist government. The marchers protested against social cuts, the cancellation of workers’ rights and the imposition of austerity sacrifices on the working class to implement European pro-big-business and banker diktats out of Brussels.A broad coalition of leftist organizations organized the demonstration. Among them were the Communist Refoundation Party, the Federation of the Left, several small trade unions further left than the larger CGIL union, unemployed/temporary workers’ and students’ collectives, delegations of workers from factories in crisis around the country, the leftist-occupied social centers, housing rights activists, environmental groups, the national No Debt Committee and smaller left-wing groups like the Communist Workers Party.Associations of people with disabilities opened the march in support of over 50 disabled activists who have been on a hunger strike for several days.The afternoon march was led by the united banner: “We stand with the Europe that is rebelling; Let’s throw out the Monti government.” After the march crossed the historic center of Rome to Piazza San Giovanni for a final rally, more than a thousand students and leftist youths continued to march to expressway ramps, where they blocked traffic into and around Rome. The youths opened a banner that read: “If they block our future, we’ll block the city.”The European Trade Union Confederation has called for a Europe-wide Day of Union Struggle on Nov. 14 against conservative anti-worker policies across Europe. So far, union federations have called general strikes that day in Portugal, Spain, Greece, Cyprus and Malta.In Italy, only the small leftist unions have called for joining the strike so far. The 6-million-member leftist union CGIL, Italy’s largest union, is at the moment trying to convince the two smaller centrist unions, CISL and UIL, to call a united strike for Nov. 14. The CGIL has itself called a 4-hour general strike for Nov. 14.Gilbert is secretary of the FLC-CGIL union at the University of Florence.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The cameraman had reportedly wanted to go on filming the clashes against the advice of some of his colleagues. Four other Iraqis were killed during the combat.Calling for an immediate US Army investigation into the circumstances of this very serious incident, Reporters Without Borders said that if it turned out the cameraman had been hit by an American bullet it would bring to seven the number of journalists killed by US forces in the last year.The organisation called on the US Army Chief of Staff to promptly send very clear orders to its troops about protection of civilians, particularly journalists, during clashes.Elsewhere, the US weekly Time Magazine has confirmed the death of one of its Iraqi interpreters, Omar Hashim Kamal, who died in Baghdad on 26 March after being shot in circumstances that are still unclear.
