Can the TUI share price double in 2021?

TUI (LSE: TUI) gained during the November stock market jump, on the back of those early successful Covid-19 vaccine results. The bullishness didn’t last long, though. And from its November high, the TUI share price has now fallen back 25%.I expect investors began to realise that the completion of a vaccination programme is still a long way away. The latest guidance suggests it will take until around September. And those more likely to jet off on faraway holidays will be among the last to get the jab. Then we have the spectre of new virus strains. And that’s hammered the travel business again, at least in the short term.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 what does it all mean for TUI specifically? Could the TUI share price really double in 2021? Well, the shares jumped 80% to their peak in November. Over the same period, the FTSE 100 only gained 20%. That suggests to me that there’s pent-up demand for TUI, and for other travel shares. What we saw in late 2020 might have been a bit of a false start, but I can see less restraint when the travel business finally gets off the ground again.Could the TUI share price double?So yes, I really do think there’s a realistic chance the share price could double in 2021. But let me explain why I’m not buying. The reason I follow TUI is that I want to find solid recovery candidates for 2021. But I think any strong recovery this year would overvalue the shares, and it could be short-lived.A doubling of the share price would put it back close to where it was before the pandemic struck. So here’s the big question I ask myself: is TUI today worth as much as it was back in February 2020? I don’t think it is.It’s currently engaged in a big capital raise, attempting to place new shares to the value of €545m. I expect that will be successful, and it looks like it should be enough to keep the company going until we’re back to business as normal. I also think it’s a better plan than raising new debt. That might be hard to achieve now anyway and emerging from the crisis with a massive debt mountain could hamper the company for years to come. Oh, and TUI has actually taken on a fair bit of new debt already.The effect of dilutionBut a new share issue will dilute existing shareholders. In fact, it will almost double the number of shares in existence. What does that suggest to me about the TUI share price? Well, my instinctive feeling is that a fair valuation should be around half the early 2020 level (assuming the company gets back to the same level of business). And that’s very close to where it is already.My Motley Fool colleague Roland Head has calculated that a recent TUI share price of 395p would be equivalent to around 710p pre-placing. And we have to go back to early 2019 to see that kind of pricing. My search for 2021 recovery stocks must move on.

From AAAFlorida gas prices are drifting lower again. After rising 8 cents early last week, pump prices have declined 1-cent per day, the past three consecutive days.Prices at the pump have ping-ponged in recent weeks. The state average increased but then declined every other week for the past month; bouncing between $2.40 and $2.50 per gallon.“The state average could fall to $2.41 per gallon by the end of the week, based on recent declines in the price of wholesale gasoline,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Recent EIA data suggests that refineries are conducting seasonal maintenance, which has had a throttling effect on gas prices in recent weeks. Fortunately, crude prices remain low, as ongoing tension between the US and China continues to worry the market. Florida pump prices have declined at a rate of one cent per day since Friday.”Despite the recent increase, Florida gas prices remain 30 cents per gallon less than this time last year. Florida drivers are finding an average price of $2.47 per gallon, at the pump.

Jason Robinson torn hamstring vs the Springboks

first_imgSunday Sep 16, 2007 Jason Robinson torn hamstring vs the Springboks As if the 36-0 demise of a struggling English team wasn’t enough, the current World Champions were forced to give a premature farewell to one of England and the British Lions’ greatest heroes. Who will ever forget his little in-and-out jink in 2001 to split the greatest defence in the world on the Lions tour to Australia? Or his scintillating slide over the white wash in the 2003 Rugby World Cup final. On Friday night he was a standout for the English, one of the few players who looked to make a difference in a game where they were totally outplayed by the Springboks. With blood pouring down his cheek and constantly getting peppered with high balls, Robinson showed true guts and stood proud, possibly being the only Englishman who could threaten the Boks’ organised defence. So when he pulled up with what looks like a torn hamstring, it was a sad moment for all. My initial reaction was that of sympathy, considering that it in all likelyhood will be the last time we see him on the international stage. Thiry three year old Robinson however, thinks otherwise. He is determined to return and has not given up. The results of a MRI scan on monday will confirm his fate. And if it’s meant to be that it was his final appearance, then what better way than to leave with field with a standing ovation at the Stade de France. “To hear the biggest roar of the evening as I limped off and seeing everyone on their feet applauding was a humbling moment,” he said. “If that’s the way I am to go out of rugby, I will remember that as a very proud moment.”ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

It’s like a half space, half enclosed, half open. Neither in nor out – a new version of the good old Aussie verandah. Its like a giant multi-sensory organ, the sun, the sky, the breeze and the sound and smell of the sea – When you arrive here of an evening and stand here and see the stars, no matter how still it is, you smell the sea – suck it in, it transforms you, reminds you (of what matters), it’s a kind of tonic. Save this picture!We like the buildings that make you smile (not laugh).It makes people smile, a building with the smallest façade on the peninsula – the building begins as the letterbox and unfurls to become this healthy scaled verandah, to some it is an upturned boat, to others it a wave a cliff. We like it being many things – people stop and ask us, we just say it is what it is to you. We wanted to show respect – the peninsula needs it, and the scale here was modest beach suburban – we wanted to respect that scale – and yet as you walk along the deck the scale sneaks up on you – before you know it your immersed and surrounded by the scale of the house – a bit like life really. Save this picture!The peninsula is the place where you suspend formality and convention for a while – we wanted the building to do this and to remind you of that – it moves too far from architectural convention towards the other disciplines – that was the intention. It becomes ambiguous – What is it? Where is the front door? You don’t need a ‘front door’ in a holiday house – you just find your way in. Save this picture!Late on a sunny afternoon, when you are all salty, it is a great place to sit; the afternoon sun gives the wall a golden glow, which is echoed by the golden beer in your hand. You sit and watch the kids do what kids do – the things they forget to do when you are in the city. The inside of this golden wall is vivid red; the support structure and the support shelves which in time will become deposits of beach memories, the much leafed book, the photos, the bric-a-brac of beach holidays and markers of the quintessential Australian family life – when that happens maybe that will then become ‘my space’ also.Project gallerySee allShow lessAedas design Civic & Cultural Centre in SingaporeArticlesKoolhaas’ anti-blob: the Prada TransformerArticles Share Save this picture!+ 24 Share Letterbox house / McBride Charles RyanSave this projectSaveLetterbox house / McBride Charles Ryan CopyAbout this officeMcBride Charles RyanOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlass#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBlairgowrieWoodHousesAustraliaPublished on March 12, 2009Cite: “Letterbox house / McBride Charles Ryan” 12 Mar 2009.

Clean Energy Generation. Completed in 2018, the house is carefully positioned on a gently sloped site, offering optimal solar exposure for its solar panels and interior spaces. The house’s energy network generates 21,000 kilowatt hours annually through 56 photovoltaic solar roof panels manufactured by LG.

The battery system, monitored daily, can store surplus energy to be consumed in the evenings and during bleak weather. The house has a certified HERS rating of (–23), meaning it generates 23% more energy than it needs. This leaves plenty of energy on reserve and at lower cost to the owners. Furthermore, the batteries store excess energy to power the occupants’ Chevrolet Bolt EV electric car. Hence, the car is effectively powered by the sun.

Deep roof overhangs shield interior spaces from overexposure and overheating during the summer. Open-floor plans and high ceilings enable airflow throughout the house, providing natural ventilation. In winter, triple-glazed windows, insulated walls, and low-infiltration detailing optimize the solar-warmth in the house.

This helps eliminate the possibility of moisture buildup and water seepage. Architecturally, weathered gray cedar siding blends the house with its rocky and wooded context. The exterior deck, patio, steps, and landscape walls visually reinforce the house’s connection to nature. An Energy-Plus Prototype for Reduced Carbon Living.Save this picture!© Greg PremruThis house design goes beyond Net Zero goals, by generating more energy than it needs, so much so that its excess energy powers an electric car. The car and house are bonded in a new sustainability equation, where energy generated, energy stored, energy consumed for the home, and energy consumed for mobility are reconsidered and rebalanced in a manner that reduces our carbon footprint. When considered holistically, this new equation offers new opportunities for design and innovation that benefits users, society, and nature alike.

Questions about Pig Losses to PEDv Send Hog Futures Soaring

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Questions about Pig Losses to PEDv Send Hog Futures Soaring Uncertainty surrounding total swine herd losses to porcine epidemic diarrhea virus has sent lean hog futures for spring and summer contracts to record-high levels, but it’s possible the markets have overreacted, a Purdue Extension agricultural economist says.PEDv is a virus of swine that is fatal to nearly 100 percent of infected piglets that are less than 2 weeks old. There is no vaccination or treatment for the disease, which poses no threat to human health or food safety.While PEDv can be devastating to individual swine herds, Chris Hurt said it remains to be seen whether slaughter supplies will fall enough to warrant the  $10 to $14 per-hundredweight surge in spring and summer futures prices over the past two weeks.“So far this year the number of animals coming to market has been very close to the numbers indicated in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s December Hogs and Pigs report,” he wrote in a weekly outlook report. “When adjusted for the number of slaughter days compared to last year, the slaughter count so far is down 0.5 percent. However, market weights have been higher by about 2.5 percent, thus causing total pork production to be up by about 2 percent.”According to Hurt, the futures market suggests that lean hog prices could average about  $112 per hundredweight for the period of March through August. This compares with an average of $88 per hundredweight for the same time period last year.If fear of low slaughter supply is the cause of the price jump, Hurt said it means traders expect hog slaughter supplies could be down by as much as 7-10 percent.When compared with USDA’s December inventory count, those numbers indicate that slaughter supplies for the second quarter of 2014 will be down only 0.5 percent. Third-quarter supplies will come primarily from winter farrowings, which is where the most uncertainty comes into play.“Winter farrowing intentions were up 1.3 percent, but since PEDv kills baby pigs and is most prevalent in cold months, the number of pigs weaned per litter could be down sharply,” Hurt said. “This is where no one knows for sure.”The USDA will provide an updated inventory report on March 28, which will provide information on the number of pigs that survived the winter.If lean hog slaughter supplies end up dropping by only 3-4 percent instead of the larger losses markets might be expecting futures prices could come down.The bigger question, Hurt said, is how PEDv will affect the financial well-being of the pork industry as a whole this year.“The initial answer might be somewhat surprising,” he said. “PEDv will likely increase economic returns for the U.S. industry.”Demand for pork tends to hold fairly steady, and consumers are slow to reduce their pork use even in short supply situations. According to Hurt, hog prices tend to increase by at least 2 percent for every 1 percent that the quantity drops.“This means that total revenue in the industry will likely increase due to PEDv and more than offset the losses from the disease,” he said.The outcome for individual hog producers won’t necessarily mirror that of the overall industry. Producers with herds severely affected by PEDv with more piglet deaths than the national average, could end up with net financial losses, Hurt said. High hog prices could offset pig losses for producers with an average number of piglet deaths.“PEDv could actually be a financial windfall for producers who are able to avoid the disease,” he said. “At the farm level, current futures markets are suggesting a live price for 2014 at a record high of $76 per hundredweight compared with $64 last year. This will provide record-high industry revenues and the highest profit per head since 2005.”Source: Purdue Ag Communications Previous articleSeed Coatings Jumpstart to Spring PlantingNext articleTwo Hoosiers Earn NPPC Pork Industry Scholarship Andy Eubank Questions about Pig Losses to PEDv Send Hog Futures Soaring Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Mar 10, 2014 Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARElast_img read more

Three more Colombian journalists targeted by death threats

first_img News Reports October 11, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three more Colombian journalists targeted by death threats to go further News Reporters Without Borders today condemned the death threats which three journalists in the northeastern department of César have been receiving since the start of the month and called for a rapid response from the authorities. The latest targets are Enrique Alfonso Camargo Plata of Radio Guatapurí, Galo Bravo Picossa, the editor of the daily El Pilón, and Miguel Macea, the correspondent of Noticias Uno and Tele Caribe.“These latest cases of death threats follow nearly a score of others throughout Colombia registered by our organisation since the start of the year, which in some case have forced the journalists concerned to flee the region where they were living,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We support the initiative of local civil and military authorities to convene a ‘security council’ to analyse the situation of the recently threatened journalists and we urge them to act as soon as possible,” the organisation added.Camargo has been threatened twice, in a telephone call to his radio station on 1 October and in an SMS text message received the next day on his mobile phone that said: “Stop talking so much on the radio or I will put a bullet in you.”The producer of a current affairs programme called ‘La Tribuna del Cesar,’ Camargo thinks organised crime is behind the threats. He recently covered alleged irregularities in a privately-owned telephone company’s contract for the installation of new lines in the city of Valledupar. He has reported the threats to the Department for Security Administration (DAS), Colombia’s leading intelligence agency, which has given him a bodyguard.Bravo received several phone calls threatening all of his newspaper’s staff. “If you publish the file on the mayor of Aguachica, I will torch you,” the caller said on one occasion. Bravo recently ran a story about the mayor’s dismissal by the council of state. Aguachica is a town in the department of César.Macea received a phone message that was equally disturbing. It referred to the extreme right-wing paramilitaries of the United Self-Defence Groups of Colombia (AUC): “My friend, you cannot imagine how grateful I would be if you were to lower your voice on the subject of self-defence. You know that we are in the middle of a peace process and if it fails, you and your family will pay the consequences.”In a newly broadcast report about the rallying of local students and peasants in support of negotiations with the paramilitaries, Macea had referred to physical attacks against journalists in the region.
