Rolls-Royce: what I’d do next after the AstraZeneca vaccine candidate data

first_img Around a month ago, I wrote about how three factors could affect Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) stock. In the article, I wrote how the potential efficacy of vaccines for Covid-19, the number of pre-made vaccines approved, and how quickly vaccines are actually administered when they’re available could affect the stock. 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…Slightly more than a month later, it turns out many of the factors have seemingly ‘rolled’ Rolls-Royce’s way. In November, both Pfizer and Moderna’s vaccine candidates turned out to be around 95% effective according to interim data. With the recent AstraZeneca vaccine candidate data, there are now potentially at least three Western vaccine candidates that are being pre-made that have a shot at approval. AstraZeneca’s interim data shows its vaccine candidate is up to 90% effective in preventing Covid-19, depending on dosage levels. And it also comes at a low price with easier storage. That could make the distribution of AstraZeneca’s vaccine candidate easier than Pfizer and Moderna’s. With easier distribution, uptake could be higher and more people could become immunised faster.Given all the events that have occurred, shares of Rolls-Royce have surged 29% over the past month when accounting for the share rights issue, according to Hargreaves Lansdown. With everything that’s happened, here’s what I’d do next. Rolls-Royce not a bargain anymore in the short termGiven the rally, I’m not as bullish on Rolls-Royce stock as I was before. I don’t really think RR is a bargain in terms of short-term fundamentals. The stock’s enterprise value, for example, is now close to what it was before the pandemic began. Meanwhile, it’s going to still take some time before RR’s fundamentals recover. Management has said in the past it expects to return to positive cash flow in the second half of 2021. I think demand for long-haul air travel could take longer than that to fully recover. In terms of what I’d do, if I owned it, I’d hold Rolls-Royce, despite it not being a short-term bargain anymore. I still like it for the long term due to the company’s competitive advantages and the secular growth in air travel. Stocks also don’t necessarily trade on fundamentals all the time. There are plenty of tech stocks that trade higher than their ‘intrinsic values’. Plenty of stocks arguably trade lower than what they should trade for as well. Data points I’d followIn terms of data points, I’d follow certain future events, such as Rolls-Royce’s next earnings report and what management’s outlook is for the future. If the outlook is better than expected, I think RR’s sentiment could improve. I’d follow how much management can get for divested assets too. I’d also follow other Covid-19 vaccine candidate data. In addition to what’s already been released, there are plenty more vaccine candidates that are in late stage trials that haven’t released their data yet.  Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Getty Images.

Johnny Sexton Omitted From Opta’s Team of the Tournament

first_img Top ten: Sexton won a Grand Slam but failed to make Opta’s team of the tournament (Getty Images) Some other notable exclusions are Alun Wyn Jones, and Keith Earls, with Cory Hill and Jonny May taking those positions. Both have caused considerable debate. Statistical Analysts OptaJonny have selected their team of the tournament, with some notable omissions. Do you agree with their team of the tournament? Who made it into your team?Don’t hesitate to let us know, and also don’t forget to follow Rugby World on Facebook and Twitter. Johnny Sexton Omitted From Opta’s Team of the TournamentWith the Six Nations finishing, the inevitable ‘teams of the tournament’ spring up everywhere and with Ireland winning the Grand Slam, most selections include Irish players like Conor Murray, Tadhg Furlong and Johnny Sexton.Well not according to Opta Jonny, who did indeed select Murray and Furlong, but no Sexton. He guided Ireland to their first Grand Slam since 2009, so his omission is perplexing – but Opta’s Index system claims Italian fly-half Tomasso Allan was the best ten in the tournament.Related: Six Nations Team of the Weekend Round Five LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS But there were some positions that cannot be argued with, like Murray, who was the best player in the tournament according to their stats.Jonny Gray made a ridiculous 100 tackles during the Six Nations, the first man ever to hit the triple-figure mark. He only missed three for the entire tournament.CJ Stander is a no-brainer too. He made an astounding, tournament-leading 96 carries in the tournament, which was eight off tying his own record for a single Six Nations Championship.In fact the XV has several other interesting aspects to it. Such as the inclusion of five Scottish players, Stuart McInally, Gray, Hamish Watson, Huw Jones and Stuart Hogg.That means Scotland had one third of the positions which was more than any other country. Ireland had four, and England, Wales and Italy all had two each. Sadly there are no Frenchman, with Mathieu Bastareaud, Guilhem Guirado and Remy Grosso probably the only players standing a chance of getting in.last_img read more

Usually, a project involves creating something out of nothing; but sometimes, as in this case, it is about strengthening something that was already there.

The Cruceiro Grande, where three religious processions become one, is out on the street, to the east. And an impressive Hórreo supported in stone beams under which one enters the garden, to the west.Save this picture!© Roi AlonsoSave this picture!Floor PlansSave this picture!© Roi AlonsoAnd then, in the center: the “eira”, the work yard, sheltered from the wind, the main focus of everything around it. This time the project is about prolonging the life of these elements in a world that is no longer their own. Hórreo and Cruceiro will remain as traces of the past. The patio will become the entrance to the home, the hub of human activity.The shed is no longer needed as a warehouse, and it transforms into a bedroom. For this purpose a linking piece is born: a bridge that links both bodies in a transparent continuum that snaps into the stone façade of the house, that covers two existing windows, and that continues until absorbing the new supporting facade with a wooden structure that marks off the shed.Save this picture!© Roi AlonsoA single gesture that brings transparency; and with its light, natural heating, and visual connection; while at the same time being integrated with the traditional building and filtering from the outside through fins that continue the Hórreo façade throughout the house and towards the balcony roof and the garage wall, unifying the work.Save this picture!© Roi AlonsoThe current staircase sitting in the courtyard is moved to the interior of the house, placed on the opposite face of the same wall, easing the transition between outside and inside, taking form with the gradual transformation of granite into Chestnut wood: from the cold exterior to the warm interior.Once inside, three large sliding panels work as a second privacy filter, closing a dining area and a kitchen that evoke the cellars and stables that originally occupied the lower levels of the house, by using rows of concrete vaults for the ceiling. Ceramic floor tiles are combined in gray tones with items made of wood in doors, windows, and pavements, enhancing the transition to the upper floor, where wood presence grows larger.Save this picture!© Roi AlonsoAbove it all, a large corridor in the inside replicates the one located outside, defined by the constant search for spatial continuity: Vertically a double height space is generated towards the office located in the attic, and a cascade of light is eased towards the ground floor with a transparent pavement. Horizontally the patio is inserted into the house thanks to the transparency of the walkway, giving birth to a light continuum that contrasts with the pre-existing small openings in the first floor.Save this picture!© Roi AlonsoProject gallerySee allShow less#donotsettle Visits MAD’s “Out-of-this-World” Harbin Opera HouseArticles10 (More) Beautiful Staircases, Part IIMisc Share Architects: LIQE arquitectura Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/878396/rehabilitation-of-a-traditional-housing-in-moscoso-liqe-arquitectura Clipboard Photographs Spain Year:  Rehabilitation of a Traditional Housing in Moscoso / LIQE arquitectura 2017 CopyAbout this officeLIQE arquitecturaOfficeFollowProductsWoodStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationMoscosoSpainPublished on August 25, 2017Cite: “Rehabilitation of a Traditional Housing in Moscoso / LIQE arquitectura” 25 Aug 2017.

China Expected to Import Record Amount of Soybeans

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE SHARE China will likely import a record amount of soybeans this year as crushers will turn to cheap overseas supplies to meet nearly all the demand for soymeal, according to Pro Farmers First Thing Today.  Climbing soymeal demand could prompt China to import as much as 85 million metric tons of soybeans for the 2015-16 marketing year, according to an analyst with China National Grain and Oils Information Centre, which would be an increase of 9 percent from the year prior.Feed mills are relying on soy product to replace other protein sources like rapeseed, distillers dried grains and cottonseed. Production of rapeseed and cotton are expected to fall sharply this year, and the country has launched an investigation into U.S. DDG’s imports that will slow its imports of the byproduct.

Newspaper editor gunned down in Mindanao, first Filipino journalist killed this year

first_imgNews Organisation News News Reporters Without Borders condemned the murder of Hernani Pastolero, the editor of the Lightning Courier weekly, who was gunned down on the southern island of Mindanao today while a UN delegation was in the country to investigate the wave of murders of journalists that began in 2001.“Pastolero is the first journalist to be killed this year in the Philippines, where several journalists are unfortunately murdered each year,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is time the government put an end to the impunity enjoyed by those responsible by trying to identify them and bring them to justice.”Pastolero, 64, was shot twice in the head while at home in the town of Sultan Kudarat, on Mindanao. Nothing is known about the murderer’s identity or probable motive. The police officer in charge of investigating the killing, Ismael Mama, said he would try to compile a list of Pastolero’s enemies. Pastolero’s family said he had not received any threats.A UN representative, Philip Alston, is currently in the city of Davao, on Mindanao island, to meet the families and colleagues of journalists killed in recent years. His visit was organised by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at the request of the victims’ families, who refused to cooperate with a government delegation.

Observations of a day-time mid-latitude ionospheric trough

first_imgA summer, dayside, mid-latitude trough detected by a digital ionosonde located at Halley (76°S, 27°W, L = 4.2) is described. The trough is found to be present in the F2-region only and its movements are found to conform to known trough dynamics. The F1-layer shows a greater degree of development within the trough; slant type sporadic E reflections are present underneath the trough minimum. Satellite data from the northern hemisphere show a conjugate trough, with rapid ion flow occurring within it. Possible formation processes for the trough are examined. It is unlikely that depleted nightside plasma could have contributed to the trough. The trough is formed by the effect of enhanced F2 recombination rates combined with a differing solar production term for the plasma associated with the trough minimum and equatorial edge.last_img read more
