Investors should stick with this stock

first_img whatsapp YOU could forgive Standard Life’s management for being more than a little disgruntled yesterday. The life insurer delivered a robust set of results, with embedded enterprise value (EEV) operating profit up 11 per cent to £364m, and International Financial Reporting Standards operating profit up 10 per cent to £182m. New business growth was reassuringly strong at 29 per cent and inflows at Standard Life investments were up 52 per cent, bringing third party assets under management to a record-breaking £63bn. Still, a bearish broker’s note from Panmure Gordon, which downgraded the shares from “buy” to “hold”, didn’t go down well with a febrile market: the stock closed off 3.6 per cent at 208.6p. Sure, investors were probably a little disgruntled that cash flow grew by six per cent to £160m, while the interim dividend was hiked by a less impressive 4.8 per cent. And it would be nice to know what the life insurer plans to do with its ever-growing £1.3bn cash pile. But there is no doubt about it: these are good shares, with an impressive yield of 5.66 per cent, better than rivals like L&G (4.27 per cent) and Prudential (3.41 per cent). And the long-term outlook is good for life insurers, as people in the UK put aside more for their retirement to cope with the ever-worsening pensions landscape. Sure, the stock – like its peers –?has had a good run of late, meaning some are going to take profits. But investors could make more if they stick by Standard Life.

Here’s why I think the Rolls-Royce share price can double

first_imgHere’s why I think the Rolls-Royce share price can double “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” The coronavirus crisis has severely impacted the Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price. The company makes most of its money on the service contacts it sells to airlines which purchase its engines. Under the terms of these contracts, Rolls get paid for every hour its engines are in the sky. As such, when governments started imposing travel restrictions to try and control the spread of the virus, and airlines were forced to ground their fleets, Rolls’ income plunged. 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…However, over the past few weeks, planes have started to fly again. That suggests the outlook for the Rolls-Royce share price is beginning to look up. Rolls-Royce share price is set to takeoffAccording to its management, the global coronavirus pandemic created a “historic shock in civil aviation.” Most analysts believe it will take several years for the sector to recover from this shock. With that being the case, the company is now predicting a worse-than-expected profit performance over the next few years. The group has pledged to generate £750m of free cash by 2022. That’s significantly below its previous target, but it’s still positive.Considering this forecast, it seems unlikely the  Rolls-Royce share price will recover to the level it started the year any time soon. However, the stock may still rise substantially from current levels. If the company meets its 2022 free cash flow target, that implies the Rolls-Royce share price is dealing at a price-to-free cash flow (P/FCF) ratio of 6.6.By comparison, the rest of the UK aerospace and defence industry is dealing at a P/FCF ratio of 14. This suggests shares in the UK engineering stalwart offer a wide margin of safety at current levels. What’s more, if the stock’s value moves back in line with the sector average, the shares could have the potential to double from current levels. Time for take-off? Clearly, the Rolls-Royce share price will continue to face some headwinds and uncertainty in the near future. The coronavirus crisis is far from over. It may take the airline industry longer than expected to recover from the recent slump. Nevertheless, the company is one of the few trusted suppliers of engines for widebody aircraft in the world. This is a substantial competitive advantage. It’s also highly cash generative. The service contracts sold with engines produce a steady cash flow for the group for decades after the sale. These factors should help the company meet its cash flow forecast in the years ahead. And if the business does hit management’s target, then it looks as if the Rolls-Royce share price has the potential to produce high total returns for shareholders in the years ahead. As such, it may be a good idea to snap up a share of this global engineering champion today as part of a well-diversified portfolio.  Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares 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.

Would a global rugby season endanger the Heineken Cup?

first_img Keen for a new challenge: Toulon are happy for a global club challenge match, would they want a new competition?By Alan DymockWITH PREMIERSHIP Rugby coming out in support of the International Rugby Players Association’s proposal for an integrated global rugby season, there could be a world of possibilities in front of those looking to find an alternative to the Heineken Cup.If the proposal was taken up it would mean that in season 2015/16 the Northern Hemisphere clubs would start playing in October and finish in June. This, in turn, would mean that by the time the summer internationals roll around, SANZAR’s Super Rugby season would be over and there would be a clear run to play without the fear of disrupting the southern franchises’ play-off hopes.Heading south: Would games with South African sides work?So far ,so rosy, it would seem. Big hitter Richie McCaw has come out in support, too, calling the potential move a “game-changer” for the sport, while Jonny Sexton appears to speak for several players at once by saying: “We see this initiative as beneficial for the global game.”However, with Premiership Rugby backing the plans it is worth noting that while they are still no closer to agreeing upon a more favourable format with the ERC shareholders from Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales for the future of the Heineken Cup, this move ensures more of an overlapping with Super Rugby and the Aviva Premiership and Top 14.If a “world challenge” format was agreed upon between English, French and possibly South African clubs, when would prospective matches be played?It has been mooted in the past that Toulon owner Mourad Boudjellal would like his Heineken-winning side to play a League-style club challenge match with the eventual winner of Super Rugby, and certainly a one-off game would be possible with a new schedule for competitions from 2015 onwards. Yet, South Africa still appears to be the only logical explanation for a new international club competition for the wantaway factions at Premiership Rugby and the Top 14 because of the favourable time difference. Australia and New Zealand would likely be too far away. Anyone responsible for taking minutes at meetings may want to get their rest in now; there is a lot of negotiating and discussing to be done on two huge issues in the near future.You can have your say by voting in our poll on the homepage: Should there be a global rugby season? LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS LONDON, ENGLAND – MAY 09: Mark McCafferty, the chief executive of Premiership Rugby talks to the audience during the Aviva Premiership Awards held at the Hilton Park Lane on May 9, 2013 in London, England. (Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images for Aviva) So when Premiership Rugby chief Mark McCafferty says: “We feel there should be some urgent discussions. This is a unique opportunity to get some alignment between the north and the south,” the potential of change is interesting.Hail to the Chief: PRL chief executive, Mark McCaffertyIn 2010, Mcafferty said of a club challenge match: “Our clubs, as well as those in Europe and the southern hemisphere, have had approaches from Monaco, Abu Dhabi and, most recently, from South Africa. If the stakeholders within rugby don’t create this, somebody else will and we’ll find an outsider coming in.”Back there were issues with settling on a timeframe. “The sticking points at the moment are the dates of the new domestic competitions in the southern hemisphere, but we’re still working on it,” McCafferty says. With interest coming in for realigning competitions, perhaps the interested parties outside of governing bodies will be sitting up and taking notice.Negotiations are, in theory, ongoing within ERC. It suits the RaboDirect Pro12 stakeholders for talks to continue without resolution, as the current rights of Pro12 clubs to compete as they currently are is protected. However, if the case for a more global season gathers pace there will be more pressure to get something in place.Sort out the Heineken Cup formatting and there could only be a one-off challenge match in prospect. Fail to come to compromise with all the ERC stakeholders and the calls for Premiership Rugby to court those in the south could increase, providing that everyone supports global schedule changes.last_img read more

This led us to design a concrete dwelling: spatially strong, with an aesthetic minimalism put through to the last detail. Strategically rainwater drains, piping and electrical wiring were eliminated from sight, resulting in an almost Spartan and graphical appearance.
