Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. This year, the Cineworld (LSE: CINE) share price has collapsed in value. The stock is now trading at its lowest level ever, having fallen more than 90% from its all-time high. Following this decline, some investors might be wondering if the stock can ever return to its previous highs. Unfortunately, this seems unlikely. While Cineworld remains one of the world’s largest cinema operators, it’s facing unprecedented pressures. 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…However, that doesn’t mean the stock doesn’t look cheap. If the company can make it through the current storm, the Cineworld share price could double from current levels.Cineworld share price outlookOver the past decade, Cineworld has been on a relentless growth drive. The company has expanded rapidly by opening new theatres and buying competitors around the world. Thanks to this aggressive strategy, sales quadrupled between 2014 and 2019. Much of the company’s growth was funded with debt. This made a lot of sense when the group could borrow at low rates, and creditors were happy to lend to the business as profits continued to expand. Now that many of the organisation’s theatres are shut, this strategy has fallen apart. The company is still solvent, but it’s gasping for air. Management’s decision to close all of its screens in the UK and US was, in my opinion, a desperate move to stop the firm running out of cash. From an investment perspective, the company’s problems already seem to be factored in to its current valuation. As the Cineworld share price has declined, the firm’s market value has fallen to such a depressed level, I think it would only take a modest improvement in profitability to produce a big jump in the share price. For example, in 2019, the business reported net income of £180m. Its current market capitalisation is only £340m. That said, there are other factors to consider. Cineworld’s debt stands at over $8bn, or £6.2bn. It’s also unlikely customers will return to the company’s theatres immediately after economies begin to open up again. It may be several years before consumer confidence returns. Potential recovery These are the reasons why I think it’s unlikely the Cineworld share price will ever recover to pre-crisis levels. But I’m not ruling out a recovery altogether. Even if net income recovers to just 30% of 2019 levels, which is around £54m, the stock is selling at a price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of 6.3. That looks cheap. Of course, there’s no guarantee earnings will return to this level. The company needs to sort out its balance sheet quickly or it could collapse under the enormous debt load management has taken on. That’s why I’m staying away. Still, I think the above illustrates the potential rewards for long-term risk-tolerant investors. Owning the Cineworld share price as part of a diversified basket of UK shares could produce large total returns when the global economic recovery gets underway.  There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!center_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Esken’s share price crashes as Stobart Air bites the dust

first_img Enter Your Email Address Fears over increasing Covid-19 cases have dragged the Esken Limited (LSE: ESKN) share price significantly lower in recent weeks. Concerns over what the emergence of the Delta variant could mean for the UK aviation sector has crushed investor appetite for this UK share.The Esken share price has plummeted on Monday too. Down 17% on the day, it’s now trading at 25.9p per share.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…Stobart Air falls to earthEsken announced on Monday its flying division is to be officially wound up. This follows news over the weekend that partner and IAG-owned Aer Lingus had to cancel flights from Belfast as Stobart Air ceased operating.In late April, Esken entered into an agreement to sell Stobart Air to Ettyl Limited. But the financing of the deal encountered subsequent problems. And Ettyl had been seeking alternative methods of stumping up the cash.However, Esken said today it’s “now clear that Ettyl is unable to conclude the transactions on the original terms or to obtain an alternative funding package” within the necessary timescale. The small-cap has therefore decided to end its agreement with Ettyl with immediate effect.Esken added that will not continue to finance Stobart Air in the absence of other buyers for the division. Consequently the company “has terminated its franchise agreement with Aer Lingus, will cease trading and is taking steps to appoint a liquidator”.Cash outflow forecasts upgradedFollowing the move Esken has “undertaken certain contingency planning measures”. And it will continue to fund lease obligations on eight ATR aircraft until they expire in April 2023 under existing arrangements. Esken also said it’ll take immediate steps to sublease these planes to other operators.Esken added it “also remains responsible for certain obligations” to Aer Lingus, under its franchise agreement.Finally, Esken said it expects to endure a cash outflow of £34m in this financial year (to February 2022) if it’s unable to sublease the planes. This compares with the £16m outflow that was predicted back in April. Outflows for fiscal 2023 and 2024 have also been upgraded to £22m and £26m respectively.Other big news from EskenIn other news, Esken is in the “final stages” of agreeing strategic funding for London Southend Airport. This would “release significant liquidity into the group while underpinning the funding requirement of the airport in the medium term.” The financial partner “has significant investment experience in the airport sector globally,” Esken said.Trading at Esken’s Aviation division continues to be troubled by travel restrictions as the pandemic rolls on. This has caused a “slower recovery” at London Southend Airport. But trading at its Global Logistics Operation has been more resilient.Elsewhere, Esken’s Energy unit is still operating at expected levels as the availability of waste wood from the construction sector has returned to pre-coronavirus levels.

What those charming photos or intelligent sections do not show; giant mosquitoes, heavy storms, sizzling sunshine, muddy grounds are there, as well. Designing a contemporary off-grid building in nature is not only about collecting rainwater or utilizing solar energy or locating the building according to the sun and wind; it is rather about a more direct, unequivocal way of relating with nature.Save this picture!Courtesy of SO?There are certain cases that this relationship has its ups and downs.

In a warm rainy afternoon, the polycarbonate window becomes a canopy to lay under and watch the sky over the plywood façade that becomes a terrace.

Growing restrictions on free flow of information

first_img Reporters Without Borders condemns a new wave of obstacles that Burma’s military government has imposed on Internet usage. It is getting steadily harder for Burmese to send emails or access websites while all means of communication were cut yesterday around opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s home. Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar MyanmarAsia – Pacific News Follow the news on Myanmar Help by sharing this information Organisation RSF_en Receive email alerts MyanmarAsia – Pacific In an email message to Reporters Without Borders, they said: ““They told us they had received an order from Naypyitaw (the capital) to arrest us (…) They gave us no explanation. They did not ask us anything, they did not tell us anything, they did not look for anything, and they did not take anything. We were not mistreated or handcuffed.”They added that they thought their arrest and expulsion might have been prompted by the case of an American citizen who was arrested for secretly visiting Aung San Suu Kyi in her home. However, they stressed that they had no ties with that American.The exile online newspaper Irrawaddy today quoted journalists working for various Rangoon-based publications as complaining about their inability to cover Aung San Suu Kyi’s arrest because of government censorship.

It is getting steadily harder for Burmese to send emails or access websites while all means of communication were cut yesterday around opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi’s home.“The increased restrictions on Internet usage following Aung San Suu Kyi’s reimprisonment suggest that the military government is once again trying to isolate Burma, as it does whenever there is political tension,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We firmly condemn this behaviour and appeal to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations to put more pressure on the government to allow the free flow of information.”It is now extremely difficult to access websites. A Rangoon-based journalist told Reporters Without Borders: “For the past five days, it has been taking hours to open foreign websites, especially email sites, but no one knows why.” It took an average of one hour to send a single email message, he said. “This is almost certainly a deliberate policy, so that no reports or photos can easily be sent out of the country.”In practice, emailing is now very restricted. When an Internet user tries to connect to Gmail, the most popular email service in Burma, the browser often disconnects, treating Gmail as an “illegal” website (see illustration on the Reporters Without Borders site). The government has also reportedly warned Internet café managers that any use of proxy software to circumvent online censorship will result in the café’s closure. Those caught in the act of opening email accounts for clients will also be closed, they have reportedly been told.The two Americans who were expelled, Jerry Redfern and Karen Coates, were teaching journalism to students in Mandalay, Burma’s second largest city. After being arrested and held in their hotel room, they were taken by train to Rangoon and expelled the next day (6 May) without being told why. May 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more
