Hindsight makes the process of investing look easy. But it really isn’t. And that’s particularly true when taking a contrarian view and investing in stocks that have been falling. One example is the behaviour of the BT (LSE: BT.A) share price.The BT share price had been falling for a long timeThe best time to buy was last Autumn because the stock was near its lows. The problem at the time is, we didn’t know it. And it’s hard to buy a stock that’s been trending down for years even when the fundamentals make the business look cheap. BT shares began their slide at the end of 2015. So that downtrend was five years old. It takes a stout contrarian heart to fight natural emotions and buy a share like that.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…[fool_stock_chartticker=LSE:BT.A]But we don’t have to. There’s no shame in waiting for a trend to break before becoming interested in a stock. And the company handbrake-turned and shot higher in early November last year. BT released an upbeat half-year results report just days before the share price jumped up. And my guess is the positive Covid-19 vaccination news around the time also helped investors to reassess BT’s forward prospects.The update confirmed that turnaround strategies were beginning to bear fruit. BT reported a “strong” operational performance despite the pandemic. And the directors declared their intention to restart shareholder dividends in 2021 because of growth in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA).And rising earnings is something new. We’ve become used to a four-year table of red ink when it comes to growth in earnings per share. But City analysts have pencilled in a mid-single-digit percentage advance for the trading year to March 2022. And I think that could mark the green shoots of change and better operational times ahead for the business.There could be operational gains aheadAfter all, BT pointed out in its October report that the pandemic has underlined the crucial role played by communication technology and services in our lives. And from that philosophical point of view, BT occupies a decent niche in the market and it always has done. However, what’s been unclear over the past few years is whether or not the company had the ongoing ability to turn its privileged position into growing profits.And, in fairness, that point remains unproven even though there’s a modest earnings increase forecast ahead. But those are the risks we face when investing in turnaround situations. We must be contrarian. If we wait until we know for sure that growth is back on track, the best of the investment opportunity will have passed us by.So I’d consider running the calculator over BT shares right now. It looks cheap by some conventional valuation measures. For example, with the share price near 148p, the forward-looking earnings multiple for the trading year to March 2022 is just over seven. And the price-to-book rating runs around 1.2.However, BT isn’t a no-brainer. It runs a capital-intensive business and the debts are high. Constant reinvestment is required to keep the firm in the game. But my guess is the company has arrested its operational decline and can now build on its gains. I’d expect BT’s share price to reflect further progress as it arrives in the years ahead.

LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Taking it on the chin: Smith in action for Wales U20 Well, because I’m a prop the set-piece, the scrum and lineout, as well as hitting rucks are obviously a really big part of my game. But I like to get my hands on the ball, too.How did you start out with the Ospreys?Last year, with Ryan Bevington out, I got a shot off the bench against Munster. It was definitely different and since then I have been determined to take my chances.How are the youngsters treated at the Ospreys?There’s certainly a lot of us! We have to step up and deliver, and there are big boots to fill, but it’s nice that the coaches are giving some of us a go. It’s a big risk but they have faith and do let us express ourselves. When did you first play rugby?I started at U10 level with Waunarlwydd.Where do you play? I was actually a No 8 at the start, but as we got older I struggled with the height of the other, bigger players. So then I moved forward.Who do you model your game on now?I think the one player to look at for me as a loosehead prop is Gethin Jenkins because of his work-rate. If I can replicate that I will be doing alright. But I don’t put pressure on myself. I just keep playing.Do you cover as much ground as Jenkins? RW verdict: This prop, 20, has been trusted to start for the Ospreys and is thriving. He will go far.This hotshot was first published in the November 2014 edition of Rugby World.

The last non-concluded state defense contract in 2011 was signed on Nov 1 at the meeting headed by Russian vice premier Igor Sechin.No details of the contract were specified. Earlier on, representatives of USC and defense ministry said that the parties had failed to tie a delivery contract for two Borei– and one Yasen-class subs due to price discords. In particular, Russian defense ministry blamed the corporation for unreasonable overpricing. As for USC, defense ministry demanded considerable cost reduction for submarines making their production unprofitable.Deputy defense minister Alexander Sukhorukov said on Oct 11 that the reason of unsettled contract “is our deficient pricing system”. “Also, there are obviously some defects in cooperation ties within USC, and lack of qualified negotiators”, pointed out the official.Russian defense minister Anatoly Serdiukov said early in Oct that out of federal RUR 581 bln, only RUR 20 bln was not placed. Apart from submarines, that money was meant for procurement of Yak-130 operational training aircrafts and S-400 air defense systems. According to Sukhorukov, due to protracted negotiations, it was decided to postpone procurement of aircraft and SAM systems to 2012.[mappress]Source: rusnavy, November 03, 2011; November 3, 2011 View post tag: Russian Industry news View post tag: Submarines View post tag: Defense View post tag: Agree Share this article
OUSU have announced that a date has been set for the commencement of the construction of a monorail following the conclusion of a deal with the council planning office last week. Ground will be broken for the first phase of construction – which will extend between Magdalen Street and St Hugh’s – in June 2015. It is expected that the monorail, nicknamed OxRail, will begin to function by late Michaelmas 2016.Â OUSU initiated negotiations with Oxford City Council earlier in March, after an anonymous donation made by a St Hugh’s alumnus made the first phase of the project financially feasible. However, LMH students have been left downtrodden after it emerged that at present funding will only pay for construction as far as St Hugh’s.An OUSU spokesperson told Cherwell, “We can confirm that we have now obtained sufficient funding for the first phase of the OxRail project, which will be approximately one mile long, beginning at Magdalen Street, extending along St Giles and Woodstock Road, and will terminate at St Hugh’s College. Five stops will be built, and four vehicles purchased”.Â Cherwell understands that approximately 45% of the Â£9.8 million budget will come from the anonymous donation, with the remainder being met by government grants and advertising contracts.However, the news has not been positively received in all circles. Lady Margaret Hall JCR President Amber CecilÃ© told Cherwell, “More or less everyone at LMH feels that we’ve been steamrollered by OUSU. I guess this goes to show that we should take them seriously after all, or the next thing you know you could be minus a monorail”.Â But Louis Trup, who represented OUSU during negotiations with Oxford City Council ahead of his tenure as President, told Cherwell, “It’s awesome that we’ve struck deal for the first leg of the monorail. But obvs [sic] the monorail to St Hugh’s is only half the job – we promised it would go to LMH too, and now we’ve got to explore ways to make that happen”.Â A spokesperson for Wolfson College simply commented, “What about us?”Amongst town residents, an anti-monorail pressure group has announced its intention to appeal against the council’s decision. Speaking to Cherwell, Louise Relddem, Chair of the Jericho Residents’ Association, and President of the ‘Monorail: No Thank You’ campaign, said, “Personally speaking, my view of the historic frontage of St Anne’s College will be completely obscured by the planned monorail route”.She continued, “There is very real anger amongst the residents at this decision, and we intend to explore all available avenues to appeal further. Students need to understand that there is more to Oxford than the university, and consider the repercussions for the town”.Â Â A spokesperson for St Hugh’s College Development Office told Cherwell, “The alumnus/alumna who made the donation does not wish to be identified, but was motivated by their concern for the emotional wellbeing of Hughsies, being so far removed from the remainder of Oxford student society”.Next week, OUSU are expected to announce the commencement of round-table talks with college housekeeping offices to negotiate the phasing-in of double beds in student rooms. President-elect Louis Trup will also chair the upcoming talks between Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin, as part of his bid for world peace.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:BHP Group is moving ahead with plans to exit thermal coal, according to people familiar with the matter, the latest move by the world’s biggest miners to retreat from the dirtiest fuel.BHP is looking at options to divest the business that includes assets in Australia and Colombia, said the people, who asked not to be identified as the development has not been made public. There’s no guarantee the company will go ahead with a sale, the people said.The decision demonstrates how growing climate-change pressure from investors and regulators is reshaping the future of extractive industries. Rival Rio Tinto Group has already removed all exposure to thermal coal and other producers including Anglo American Plc have been cutting output amid growing pressure from investors. Even Glencore Plc, the biggest shipper, has said it will look to limit production.BHP had already signaled cooling interest in thermal coal. Earlier this year, Chief Financial Officer Peter Beaven said the company had no appetite for growth in the commodity.While thermal coal makes up a fraction of BHP’s profits, it’s led to some investors saying they can’t hold the stock. Norway’s $1 trillion sovereign wealth fund last month got the green light to dump more than $13 billion in stocks linked to fossil fuels, including companies that mine more than 20 million tons of thermal coal, pushing Anglo American and BHP out of reach. Climate Action 100+, which has the backing of more than 300 investors managing $32 trillion, has already forced reforms from extractive giants such as BP Plc and Glencore.For BHP, thermal coal has become increasingly hard to justify. The company’s profits are driven by iron ore, oil, copper and coking coal (used to make steel) and thermal coal is likely to contribute just 1% of profit this year, according to Liberum Capital Markets.More: BHP is latest giant miner to plan exit from thermal coal Sources say BHP considering exit from thermal coal market
