I think this FTSE 100 stock is cheap, but it could be too risky

first_img Image source: Getty Images. The UK-based developer specialises in residential new builds across the country. It also has a commercial brand that builds offices as well as retail and leisure spaces. Barratt operates through six core regions and 27 operating divisions and directly employs over 6,000 people.When the Covid-19 pandemic upset the UK markets, Barratt’s share price saw a decrease of approximately 45%. Mid-March saw a three-year low of 364p per share. At the time writing, a mini fightback had occurred and the per share price now trades at over 500p. Covid-19 updateBarratt released a trading and Covid-19 update at the end of March. The outlook for year-end results (which is 30 June for Barratt) was unclear as it does not want to anticipate longer-term results. It did provide an update on several measures to stave off further troubles.The four main actions were that of suspending all land buying activity. This is a given as there is no indicator around timeframes of this lockdown or the condition of the market post-Covid-19. It also ties in with another measure, that of postponing all non-essential capital expenditure. Next, Barratt highlighted the need to manage cash flows carefully and ensure employees, suppliers, and sub-contractors were paid on time. Finally, it announced that all recruitment activity would be suspended until further notice.Furthermore, Barratt, like many other companies out there, announced that it would be cancelling an interim dividend. Due be paid out in May, this will save the company approximately £100m. This is a smart and unsurprising move, in my opinion, especially in the light of current market conditions.The business does have a healthy cash pile of £380m which will go a long way to seeing it through this sticky patch. With a price-to-earnings ratio of 7, I do not see a huge risk in the stock at this time. Burning questionsBarratt has been performing admirably over the last few years. Profits have been increasing year on year as well as dividend per share. These indicators are a good sign when analysing investment viability. My only concern is the current bear market and what happens when we emerge from this. What will the housing market look like post-Covid? Will people be able to afford new homes as if nothing happened? Will housebuilders resume similar levels of activity? I do not own a crystal ball but these lingering questions, among other, would deter me from investing in what looks like a cheap stock.  Enter Your Email Address I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Report: Red light camera crashes are up, and so is ticket…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter By William Patrick of Watchdog.org    Mama Mia January 24, 2017 at 8:25 am Reply You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here “Red light cameras don’t lead to better public safety,” Dunn told Watchdog.org. “We believe it’s a money grab. It’s taxation by citation,” she said.Gowan dodged questions from committee members about red light camera financial incentives, and admitted that the state doesn’t inquire, much less intervene, as to where local governments place the cameras — whether at the busiest intersections or at the most dangerous intersections.“We did a $90,000 survey of 300 intersections with the taxpayers’ money to find the most dangerous intersections in the city, but the cameras didn’t go to those intersections. They went where the traffic was,” said state Rep. Wengay Newton, Sr., a St. Petersburg Democrat.St. Petersburg’s red light camera program was discontinued, Newton added.Gowan also told the legislators he didn’t know if the reason 11 Florida jurisdictions dropped their red light camera programs was because of expensive contracts with private vendors.By law, local governments must procure the services of a red light camera vendor. The contract term generally ranges from three to five years, and local governments typically pay between $4,250 and $4,750 per camera, per month, according to the Office of Policy Analysis and Governmental Accountability.“I’m struck by the number of questions being asked here and the lack of information that the survey is yielding,” said state Rep. Kristin Diane Jacobs, D-Coconut Creek.Red light camera violations become uniform traffic citations, or tickets, 60 days after they’re issued to drivers. The cameras involve third-party private vendors, like American Traffic Solutions, that some courts have determined to perform unconstitutional policing duties.Last year’s 1.2 million red light camera violations were $158 each. Gowan explained the revenue break-down:$70 is remitted to the state general revenue fund.$75 is retained by the local jurisdiction that issued the violation.$10 is forwarded to the Department of Health emergency medical fund.$3 goes to a state brain and spinal cord trust fund.The department’s summary report noted that more drivers than ever are opting to contest their red light camera violations. A record 383,583 violations went unpaid last year.Still, Gowan said the state portion of red light camera revenue increased nearly 11 percent to $70.2 million.“We recommend that drivers fight red light camera tickets,” Dunn said. “It’s the only way to get things changed in the traffic court system.”“If the legislature doesn’t act, the issue will probably end up in the Florida Supreme Court,” she added.    TAGSRed Light Cameras Previous articleChristian organization forced to leave IndiaNext articleEverything you want to know about red light cameras… Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR January 23, 2017 at 12:01 pm Reply Red light camera operators issued a record number of violations to Florida drivers last year — which means more revenue for the state and local governments.But the number of crashes at red light camera intersections also increased.That was made clear this week when Larry Gowen, chief performance officer for the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, presented an overview of the state’s red light camera programs to a legislative transportation committee.According to Gowen, 59 counties and municipalities issued more than 1.2 million red light camera violations last year — a 27 percent increase from fiscal year 2014-15. Only 51,775 red light moving violations were issued by actual law enforcement officers.Since the department began keeping records in 2012, crashes at red light camera intersections have increased by 10 percent since before the cameras were installed at the same intersections.Angled crashes increased 6.7 percent, rear-end crashes were up 11.4 percent, and crashes involving “incapacitating injuries” jumped 26.8 percent.More than 5 million camera violations were issued during the period.Gowan said the crashes could be the result of more motorists driving more vehicle miles.State lawmakers authorized red light cameras in 2010 with the express intent of improving public safety. But that hasn’t happened according to Sheila Dunn, communications director for the National Motorists Association. Florida residents need to call and write their state Representatives, Senators, and the Governor to politely but clearly insist that House Bill 6007 and Senate Bill 178 to totally ban red light cameras become law. Let each official know you find the cameras are almost entirely about money, and that complete removal is the only acceptable solution.

Walker, Life Member – National Motorists Association How many of those crashes were caused by a driver slamming on brakes in fear of the red-light camera thus causing a driver behind to rear-end the driver in the front????? 3 COMMENTS Please enter your name here James C. Walker Quite a few, because the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) forbids setting the safest length yellow intervals at many camera intersections. WHY would FDOT forbid the safest length yellows? That is easy, because using properly long yellows sharply reduces the number of $83 commissions that go to the state from each $158 highway robbery ticket.James C.

Nurses strike over lack of Ebola preparedness

first_imgNurses at White House during national strike for health and safety.National Nurses United held a day of strikes and demonstrations in 16 states on Nov. 12 demanding effective personal protective equipment and “continuous, rigorous interactive training for RNs and other health workers who might ­encounter an Ebola patient,” said Rose Ann DeMoro, NNU executive director. “That includes practice putting on and taking off the hazmat suits where some of the greatest risk of infection can ­occur. The lack of concern for nurses and ­patients in a world where corporations have taken over our community health care has been magnified during this deadly Ebola crisis.”In the African countries of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, Ebola kills at least half the people who contract the disease, according to a World Health Organization fact sheet. In the United States, as of Nov. 16, eight out of 10 Ebola patients have recovered. Survivors received early diagnosis and supportive care: prevention of dehydration with intravenous fluids, replacement of blood components, oxygen, nutritional support, and treatment for hemorrhage, shock and co-existing bacterial infections.It is unknown whether blood plasma from survivors, which in theory contains antibodies to fight the virus, or the drug Zmapp, played a role in their recovery. These have not yet been tested in human beings to determine their safety or effectiveness.Thomas Eric Duncan is the only Ebola patient treated in the U.S. to have died. An uninsured Liberian man, he was turned away from a Dallas hospital on Sept. 26 after a CAT scan, despite having fever and a history of travel to an area with much Ebola. He did not receive any treatment until several days later, when he returned by ambulance, critically ill. Two nurses at the nonunion hospital were infected with Ebola while caring for Duncan without proper training. They have recovered.It appears that basic supportive care can greatly reduce the Ebola death toll. However, since the 1980s, the International Monetary Fund has enforced policies that led to a deterioration of health care infrastructure in countries now hit by the disease.According to Rick Rowden in the Oct. 30 issue of Foreign Policy magazine, IMF policies that prevent “developing countries from scaling up long-term public investment in public health systems … have led to dilapidated health infrastructure, inadequate numbers of health personnel and demoralizing working conditions that have added to the ‘push factors’ driving the migration of nurses from poor countries to rich ones. All this has undermined public health systems in developing countries, including the ones now trying to cope with Ebola.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ag Impacted by Ryan Budget Resolution

first_img SHARE Ag Impacted by Ryan Budget Resolution SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Impacted by Ryan Budget Resolution Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Apr 1, 2014 House Budget Committee Chair Paul Ryan has released a 15-year House budget resolution that would cut farm program spending by 23-billion dollars from 2015 to 2024 – according to The Hagstrom Report. The resolution would also turn SNAP into a block grant to the states and eliminate the provision allowing states to increase SNAP benefits if they use the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program. However – no SNAP changes would be made until 2019. The budget notes the 23-billion in savings could be achieved by continuing to reform assistance programs for agriculture. It also says farmers will benefit greatly from other provisions in the budget – including regulatory relief, fundamental tax reform and stronger economic growth. How farm programs will be cut is not specifically stated in the budget. House Ag Ranking Member Collin Peterson says he is committed to reducing the nation’s debt and working in a bipartisan, serious and thoughtful way to address those budget issues. Unfortunately – Peterson says the hatchet approach taken by the Ryan budget proposal is not serious or thoughtful. A mark-up of the resolution is scheduled for Wednesday, but the budget isn’t expected to be enacted as the Senate is unlikely to pass a budget resolution this year.National Farmers Union President Roger Johnson says Chairman Ryan’s budget proposal is partisan and impractical. Johnson says the farm bill passed two months ago with 23-billion dollars in savings from reductions to farm, conservation and nutrition programs – but now the House Republican leadership wants to cut those programs again and turn SNAP into a block grant program. He says that ship has sailed – and it’s time to move on to other important issues and stop this annual exercise in budget slashing.Source: NAFB News Service Previous articleAmerican Ethanol to Plant Trees and put Green in SpringNext articleBeef Prices Will Remain High Until Herd Numbers Increase Andy Eubanklast_img read more

Follow the news on Asia – Pacific News News Professor Sun Wenguang, 84, was arrested at his home in Jinan City, Shandong province, on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 in the middle of a live telephone interview with Voice of America (VOA) Mandarin. The news channel is popular with the Chinese community abroad. Even though it is censored in China, Voice of America’s YouTube account has nearly 700,000 subscribers, more than triple the subscribers of the English channel.Retired from Shandong University where he taught physics and economics until 1994, Professor Sun is known for his assertive public interventions against censorship and propaganda. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) demands his immediate release and stresses that freedom of speech and freedom of the press are explicitly written in the Constitution of the People’s Republic of China.A chilling message to Chinese overseas”This arrest is a chilling message from Beijing to its people and the Chinese community overseas that the regime is ready to do anything to silence independent voices,” says Cedric Alviani, the director of RSF’s East Asia bureau. “Pressure on journalists’ sources is a new strategy of the Chinese government to control its image abroad.”In its latest report released in February, the Foreign Correspondents’ Club of China (FCCC) denounced the escalating steadfastness of Xi Jinping’s regime to prevent the foreign press from doing its job by intimidating, attacking and imprisoning sources.Professor Sun was sent to an internment camp during the Cultural Revolution, and he served four years in prison between 1978 and 1982 for criticizing President Mao Zedong. He signed “Charter 08,” a petition that called for democratic reforms in China including freedom of the press, which was started by the Nobel Peace Prize and RSF award laureate Liu Xiaobo who died in detention last year.Ranked 176th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index, China is currently holding more than 50 journalists and bloggers in its prisons.

RSF yearly round-up: “historically low” number of journalists killed in 2019

first_img May 13, 2021 Find out more June 7, 2021 Find out more 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Organisation A total of 49 journalists were killed this year, 389 are currently in prison and 57 are being held hostage, according to the annual worldwide round-up of deadly violence and abusive treatment against journalists, released today by Reporters Without Borders (RSF). Journalism remains a dangerous profession but the number of journalists killed this year is at its lowest in 16 years. Compiled by RSF every year since 1995, the annual round-up of abusive treatment and deadly violence against journalists is based on precise data covering the period from 1 January to 1 December. We gather detailed information that allows us to affirm with certainty or a great deal of confidence that the death, detention, abduction or disappearance of each journalist was a direct result of their journalistic work. Unprecedented fall in the number of journalists killedREAD MOREHERE Increase in arbitrary detention News This unprecedented fall must not however eclipse the fact that the number of journalists killed in countries at peace continues to be as high as in previous years. In Mexico, for example, ten journalists were killed in 2019, the same number as last year.  With a combined total of 14 journalists killed, Latin America is now as deadly for journalists as the Middle East., with all of its wars.

Worldwide, a total of 389 journalists are currently in prison in connection with their work, 12% more than last year. Nearly half of these journalists are being held by three countries: China, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. Having intensified its crackdown on the Uyghur minority, China alone holds a third of the worldwide total of arbitrarily detained journalists. December 16, 2019 – Updated on December 17, 2019 RSF yearly round-up: “historically low” number of journalists killed in 2019 Reports Covering conflicts in Syria, Yemen and Afghanistan was two times less deadly for journalists in 2019 – with a combined total of 17 journalists killed in these three countries compared with 34 in 2018. As a result of these dual trends – less deadly war zones, but countries at peace as dangerous as ever – more journalists (59%) are now being killed in countries at peace than in war zones. At the same time, there has been a 2% increase in journalists being deliberately murdered or targeted. Receive email alerts WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists “The frontier between countries at war and countries at peace is in the process of disappearing for journalists,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We welcome the unprecedented fall in the number of journalists killed in war zones but, at the same time, more and more journalists are being deliberately murdered in connection with their work in democratic countries, which poses a real challenge for the democracies where these journalists live and work.” The number of journalists killed this year – 49 – is the lowest since 2003, and represents a spectacular 44% fall on last year’s figure. This year’s “historically low” figure, compared with an annual average of 80 journalists killed during the past two decades, is above all the result of a fall in the number of journalists killed in war zones.
