Why has the IAG share price climbed 85% in November? And what will I do now?

first_img Airline shares don’t usually come close to doubling in a month. But that’s what’s happened to International Consolidated Airlines (LSE: IAG). Since its lowest point on 30 October, the IAG share price is up a fraction over 85%.It’s all down to developments on the Covid-19 vaccine front. We now have three vaccines that have produced very impressive results in trials. And the most recent, the Oxford vaccine developed in partnership with AstraZeneca, is far cheaper and easier to transport and store than the others. That raises hopes of a faster rate of worldwide vaccination, which can only help the plight of the airlines.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…But before I get too excited about prospects for the IAG share price, I’m keeping three key things in mind. Firstly, we might see the first vaccinations happening even before the end of the year. But we could have to wait some time before vaccine reaches enough of the population to really benefit the airlines. I don’t expect passenger numbers to start to climb noticeably higher before next summer at the earliest.IAG share price in 2020Next up, the IAG share price itself. Sure, we’ve just seen a cracking month’s gain. But that just means the disaster of 2020 is now a tiny bit less of a disaster. We’re still looking at a 73% fall since the beginning of the year. So if I buy now, will I be buying into one of the best performing shares of the month, or one of the worst of the year. For me, it’s the longer-term trend that matters.But my biggest concern when I think about IAG is, which IAG? Not the IAG we had in January 2020. No, that IAG has gone. And before anyone contests that, let me explain what I mean. When a company’s market fundamentally changes, possibly permanently, and when its corporate and financial structure turn upside down, we should forget what it used to be like and evaluate it as a completely new company. And as yet, I have no idea what shape that new company will be. Or where the IAG share price will go.The shape of IAG to comeThis was brought home to me by a BBC News story talking about a big sell-off at British Airways. It’s not just a cash-generating asset disposal of the kind we often see at times like this. No, BA is selling off cutlery and crockery, including bone china from first class cabins. Some of it is Boeing 747 paraphernalia now those are out of service, and people love souvenirs. And it makes sense for IAG to generate as much cash as it can, especially after recording a £5.1bn loss for the first nine months of the year. Ouch. Remembering that figure makes me twitchy about the IAG share price.But the BBC made the point that BA is likely to be a significantly slimmer operation until the aviation business picks up. I don’t think that pick-up will happen for quite some time. And I think we might never again see flying regain its pre-pandemic levels.So until I see the shape of the industry, and the shape of the company, the IAG share price can do what it likes. I’m not buying. I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Grande House is an integral refurbishment of a 400m2 house located on an estate in Madrid where it is easy to find wild animals that share with the house the environment with autochthonous vegetation in which holm oaks and junipers define the landscape. The restoration of the old house has been carried out with the purpose of enjoying it with family and friends, that idea was the one transmitted by its owners as a fundamental goal. Working with them very involved, we have managed among all of it; the desire materializes in a sincere and relaxed house that integrates into the natural environment that surrounds it. Save this picture!© Carla CapdevilaSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Inés GaytánThe intervention has protected the original morphology of the house, in the project has been recovered the stone that was hidden by layers of mortar, enhancing its value both outdoors and indoors. The composition of the elevation has been respected, framing and dignifying the original gaps protecting them with 8mm steel inlets. The connection of the construction with the garden has been taken into account from the beginning of the project, also recovering existing elements of the outdoor space and incorporating totally indigenous vegetation merging it into the existing landscape. Save this picture!© Carla CapdevilaFor the interior distribution, the ground floor was marked as a meeting area totally linked to the outside and the first floor for rooms for family and friends us. On the ground floor, the circulation is fluid and diaphanous marked by the presence of the stone loading wall, that divides the plant longitudinally in two spaces and it separates, in a very permeable way, the kitchen and dining room from the living rooms of the house. Save this picture!© Carla CapdevilaSave this picture!Longitudinal Section 1Save this picture!© Carla CapdevilaOn the first floor, the rooms are distributed supported by the same wall that divides the lower floor, creating rooms with built-in bathrooms considering that the owners often share the house with friends.

RSF’s #WeeklyAddress on US press freedom: Week of May 29 – June 4

first_img RSF_en News News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists United StatesAmericas Below are the most notable stories regarding threats to press freedom in the U.S. during the week of May 29 – June 4: Follow the news on United States Below are the most notable stories regarding threats to press freedom in the U.S. during the week of May 29-June 4: 1. Tuesday, May 30, marked the first televised White House press briefing since May 18. This was one of three televised briefings this week. A fourth briefing took place, but the White House banned television cameras and the briefing lasted for less than 12 minutes. President Trump has been considering decreasing the frequency of on-camera White House press briefings. 2. During the May 30 press briefing, Brian Karem, a reporter for Maryland newspaper The Sentinel, asked Press Secretary Sean Spicer if the Trump administration will take a stand against violence against journalists. Spicer responded, “We’ll take a stance against violence against any individual.” When Karem followed up by asking if the administration would support legislation to protect journalists, Spicer said: “We have a Constitution, Brian, that supports the First Amendment.” While working for Texas television station KMOL-TV in 1990, Karem was arrested and sentenced to six months in jail for refusing to reveal the names of sources who helped him get interviews with a jailed murder suspect. He was released after two weeks, when his source released Karem from his promise of confidentiality. Karem is now an advocate for adopting a federal shield law. 3. RSF is tracking an incident that occurred at the office of a newspaper in London, Kentucky, last weekend. On the morning of Sunday, May 28, windows on the lower levels of the Lexington-Herald Leader’s building were shattered, and two windows on the upper level were damaged with what appear to be small-caliber bullets.Police have yet to identify a suspect, though they have noted that similar cases of vandalism have occurred in the last month at other locations near the newspaper’s building, including an elementary school. The Lexington Herald-Leader had not received any specific threat in relation to the vandalism.

The effects of freeze-thaw cycles and leaching on the loss of soluble carbohydrates from leaf material of two subantarctic plants

first_imgLeaves and litter of two phanerogams (Acaena magellanica (Lam.) Vahl and Poa flabellata (Lam.) Hook. f.) were collected in spring on the subantarctic island of South Georgia. Leaves immersed in water lost up to 80% of their total available soluble carbohydrates after 6–8 h. The loss of K+ and PO 4 3- followed a similar pattern to that shown by the carbohydrates. Up to 9 daily freeze/thaw cycles gave no increase in metabolite loss for senescent leaves. GLC analysis showed sucrose to be the principal leachate from Acaena. Sucrose, glucose and fructose were the main leachates from Poa. A significant proportion of the soluble carbohydrates in standing dead leaves was trehalose. The relationship of such leachates to microbial decomposition is discussed.last_img read more

‘Court system will fall apart if repossession reform is introduced as proposed’

first_imgThe Residential Landlords Association (RLA) has warned the new Justice Secretary Robert Buckland MP that if the government introduces its repossession reforms as they stand, the courts will go into meltdown.In a letter to Buckland (pictured, above), the RLA has warned against scrapping Section 21 ‘no explanation’ repossessions, highlighting how it already takes five months on average from a landlord applying to court for a property to be returned to them. The warning comes despite government promises to soften the blow by modifying the Section 8 notice process.The letter also includes details of the latest RLA landlord survey while reveals that 79 per cent of private landlords who have used the courts to repossess properties are dissatisfied with the way they work, and that 91% of support the establishment of a dedicated housing court.Scots problemsIn Scotland, when similar reforms were completed, the Government was forced to invest extra cash and provide more staff after it underestimated the increased pressures brought on the court system.It is not just landlords who find the system difficult to work with. According to previous research published by Citizens Advice, 54 per cent of tenants have said that the complexity of the process puts them off taking landlords to court where their landlord is failing to look after their property, while 45 per cent said that the time involved put them off taking action through the courts.With landlords and tenants able to take different types of cases to different courts, the RLA argues that simply tinkering with the existing system is not good enough. It is calling on the Government to establish a single, dedicated housing court that is properly funded and properly staffed.Two routesAt present, landlords can repossess properties using two routes. One, known as Section 21, enables a landlord to regain possession at the end of a tenancy and requires two months’ notice to be given but without providing a reason. Under the other avenue, known as Section 8, landlords can repossess a property under a number of set grounds including rent arrears and anti-social behaviour.David Smith, Policy Director for the Residential Landlords Association, says: “Ministers are proposing some of the most far reaching changes the private rented sector has ever seen. If the new Government decides it wants to proceed with these it is vital that significant and bold reforms are made to the court system.“With landlords and tenants failing to secure justice in a timely fashion when things do go wrong, anything other than wholesale changes with proper funding to support it will lead to chaos.”robert buckland Residential Landlords Association repossessions Citizens Advice David Smith August 1, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Bakery chains line up to bag Ainsleys shops

There has been an “encouraging show of interest” in Ainsleys of Leeds, after the business was forced to call in the adminis-trators earlier this month, with Greggs and Cooplands (Doncaster) among the interested parties.Joint administrator Joe McLean, a partner at Grant Thornton in Leeds, told British Baker the business was “running as normal”. He said it had been an encouraging week, and that staff in Ainsleys’ bakery and shops had taken the news with great resilience, despite hundreds of jobs being at risk. “We are in discussions with some parties… it’s still early, but we are hopeful we might find a buyer.”Greggs said it would be “very interested” in looking at a number of Ainsleys shops. “We could offer a future to somewhere in the region of one in three Ainsleys shops, if the administrators would consider those coming over to Greggs,” said chief executive Ken McMeikan. “Our sadness at the moment is to see other another baker in trouble. We want to see the bakery industry thriving.” Chris Peck, chairman of Cooplands, confirmed that the 75-strong bakery chain was also interested in Ainsleys, but said that it was “early days” in terms of a deal. “Ainsleys has a good name and, geographically, it is within our logistical capabilities, so it would be relatively painless to absorb the company.”The 29-shop firm went into administration on Friday 6 November, after earlier attempts to find a buyer failed. McLean said Ainsleys had been trading in difficult circumstances for some time, with declining retail sales and increased market competition.Ainsleys employs 263 full- and part-time staff, and around 30 temporary workers, across its shops and bakery in Sheepscar, Leeds, and in its van sales operation. General manager James Ainsley said that, along with the Ainsley family and company directors, he wished to acknowledge the hard work and loyalty of the staff, “particularly through the recent challenging times”. read more

News story: Statement from the UK Chief Medical Officers on extension of self-isolation period: 30 July 2020

first_imgIn symptomatic people COVID-19 is most infectious just before, and for the first few days after symptoms begin. It is very important people with symptoms self-isolate and get a test, which will allow contact tracing.Evidence, although still limited, has strengthened and shows that people with COVID-19 who are mildly ill and are recovering have a low but real possibility of infectiousness between 7 and 9 days after illness onset.We have considered how best to target interventions to reduce risk to the general population and consider that at this point in the epidemic, with widespread and rapid testing available and considering the relaxation of other measures, it is now the correct balance of risk to extend the self-isolation period from 7 to 10 days for those in the community who have symptoms or a positive test result.This will help provide additional protection to others in the community. This is particularly important to protect those who have been shielding and in advance of the autumn and winter when we may see increased community transmission.Chief Medical Officer for England, Professor Chris WhittyChief Medical Officer for Northern Ireland, Dr Michael McBrideChief Medical Officer for Scotland, Dr Gregor SmithChief Medical Officer for Wales, Dr Frank Athertonlast_img read more
