The last time I covered Royal Mail (LSE: RMG) shares was back on 10 February when the share price was around 175p. At the time, the FTSE 250 company had just issued a disappointing trading update, in which it advised that the outlook for 2020-21 was “challenging”. That’s not what you want to hear as an investor. As a result, I said that the shares were not worth the risk and that there were much better stocks to buy.Fast forward to today, and that now looks like the right call. This week, Royal Mail shares crashed again after the company issued another set of poor results. As I write this, the shares are trading at 160p, which represents a decline of nearly 10% since my article in February. Here, I’ll take a look at the latest results from Royal Mail and give my thoughts on the FTSE 250 stock now.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…Large drop in profitsIt’s fair to say that this week’s full-year results from Royal Mail were pretty ugly.While revenue for the year was up 3.8%, profits were well down. Adjusted profit before tax, for example, was down 31% to £275m. Meanwhile, basic earnings per share decreased 36% to 19.6p.Dividends were well down as well. For the year, the total dividend was just 7.5p (compared to 25p last year), after the board decided not to recommend a final dividend for 2019-20.No dividend this yearMaking matters worse, the guidance for the near term did not look good.Not only did the company advise that the unprecedented nature of pandemic means the outlook is “challenging and volatile”, but it also said that it expects its UK division (UKPIL) to be “materially loss-making” in 2020-21. Furthermore, it said that it expects to pay no dividend in 2020-21.Royal Mail also provided two potential scenarios of how the business could perform in 2020-2021. In the first scenario – which assumes a UK GDP decline of 10% for 2020-21 – UKPIL revenue is likely to be £200m to £250m lower year-on-year. In the second scenario – which assumes a deeper recession – UKPIL revenue could be £500m to £600m lower year-on-year.All in all, these results, and the future outlook, were not encouraging.Turnaround planNow, the company did say that it is going to implement a ‘three-step’ plan in an effort to turn things around. It plans to cut costs significantly, and accelerate the pace of operational change in the UK to address long-standing challenges.However, we’ve heard these kinds of things before from Royal Mail. So I’d take this turnaround plan with a pinch of salt.Royal Mail shares: my viewLooking at these results, my view on Royal Mail shares remains the same as it was in February. In my opinion, it’s a stock to avoid.Forget about the fact that the shares are cheap. This is a company that is experiencing a number of major challenges right now and is likely to continue experiencing challenges for at least a few years, in my view.And it’s now paying no dividends, so it’s not even a good income stock these days.I think the best move is to steer clear of Royal Mail shares at the moment.All things considered, I think there are much better stocks to buy right now, particularly if you’re investing for income.

Varias personas han resultado muertas y heridas. Nuestros prójimos judíos, nuestros hermanos y hermanas, se sienten temerosos y debemos estar con ellos y brindarles consuelo y apoyo, a ellos y a todos. Informan que el pistolero no sólo vociferó consignas antisemitas, sino que también vociferó y se pronunció en contra de los inmigrantes y los refugiados y otras personas.Debemos orar, debemos orar por él, debemos orar por el espíritu de nuestra nación, para que se difunda un espíritu de amor y compasión y decencia y bondad, y que los espíritus de odio e intolerancia sean echados fuera. Pero, sobre todo, en este momento, oren por los que han muerto y por sus familias y sus seres queridos. Oren por los primeros que acudieron a intervenir, oren por nuestros hermanos y hermanas de la comunidad judía. Oren por la sinagoga El Árbol de la Vida. Oren por la ciudad de Pittsburgh. Oren por Estados Unidos. Oren por todos nosotros.Y luego, salgan y hagan algo. Hagan algo que ayude a ponerle fin a la larga noche y contribuya a traer la luz del día. Visiten a un vecino. Recuérdenles a nuestros hermanos y hermanas judíos que no están solos. Ocúpense de alguien. Amen. Defienda lo justo y lo bueno. Oren pues. Y luego actúen.Y oren:Padre nuestro que estás en el cielo, santificado sea tu Nombre, venga tu reino, hágase tu voluntad, en la tierra como en el cielo.Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día.Perdona nuestras ofensas, como también nosotros perdonamos a los que nos ofenden.No nos dejes caer en tentación y líbranos del mal.Porque tuyo es el reino, y el poder y la gloria ahora y por siempre.

Ninh Binh is a small, peaceful city, located 100km to the south of Hanoi – the capital of Vietnam. Most of the new urban houses here are designed and built in the old-fashioned French mansion style, which was carelessly copied from colonial-style villas in Vietnam in the past. Redundant of pretentious and lavish decoration from the outside, but lacking green and open spaces, those buildings take no account of quality space for human life inside.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienLocated among those buildings, Ninh Binh House stands out as a simple, monolithic concrete box surrounded by nature. It is a simple building, using reinforced concrete structure, which is very popular in Vietnam, but designed to create a new, different living space and closer to nature.Save this picture!© Trieu Chien The house consists of two parts, blended harmoniously into each other: the building box and the garden. The spacious open garden is in front of the house, behind the somewhat closed, private wall. A fish pond, tall trees and a stairway leading to a vegetable garden on top of the garage not only make the landscape of the garden come alive but also helps in filtering western sunlight and air into the building.Save this picture!Section 01Save this picture!Section 02As one enters the building through the gardern and the pond, a large space opens up. All of the common spaces are located in this three-storey “atrium” at the center of the building. In the first floor there are living room, dining room and the kitchen. Reading space and common area are at the second floor. And then, the third floor consists of a fitness area and worship space. All of these are connected by floating staircase, placed in different directions in the atrium.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienOpenings in both façade and rooftop are introduced in a seemingly random fashion, creating an ever-changing light atmosphere for the space. Sitting in the living room, one can fully perceive the changing moments of nature and the daily activities of the house. A bond between men and nature has been formed.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienTwo other blocks of the house include bedrooms and other functional rooms. Windows with greenery balconies are carefully placed in those rooms to provide sufficient light, air and interesting views.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienFrom an outdoor patio in the third floor, a spiral staircase leads to the rooftop garden with view to the cityscape and provides vegetables for the family.Save this picture!© Trieu ChienThe house style is minimalist. The exterior walls are not painted. Interior finishing material includes unfinished concrete ceilings and wooden furniture. All of these contribute to help the dwellers fully enjoy the flow of nature surrounding the house.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Kudlow: Coronavirus Might Delay Phase One Deal Exports In an interview with Fox Business Tuesday morning, President Trump’s chief economic adviser Larry Kudlow said exports as part of the phase one trade deal with China will take longer because of the coronavirus outbreak.“It is true the ‘phase one’ trade deal, the export boom from that trade deal, will take longer because of the Chinese virus,” Kudlow said. “On the other hand, the North American trade deal, USMCA, is going to unlock tremendous investment … Manufacturers will benefit.”In the phase one deal, there is a clause that would help China meet its commitments if unforeseeable events would prevent it. Chinese Ambassador Huang Ping responded to Kudlow’s comments, saying he doesn’t know if China will exercise that clause.“I hope the ‘phase one’ deal, which we tried very hard to get there, will not be affected,” Huang said at a press conference in New York Tuesday. “So, let’s wait and see how quickly this can be over for the disease.”Kudlow went on to tell Fox Business that the economic impact to the U.S. would be minimal. He did add the caveat, “This is all iffy. There’s a lot of information we don’t know.” Previous articleAg Alumni Fish Fry Features New Boiler Bee Honey and Pesticide Legislation Introduced at Indiana Statehouse on the HAT Tuesday Morning EditionNext articleSix Receive Certificate of Distinction from Purdue Ag Alumni Association Eric Pfeiffer SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Kudlow: Coronavirus Might Delay Phase One Deal Exports By Eric Pfeiffer – Feb 4, 2020 SHARE

A few years ago, hotelier Amit Garg decided to delay plans to build a new hotel in Odessa. The oil workers he would need to rely on as guests for weeks at a time were being laid off by the thousands, and the local hotel industry as a whole suffered sharp drops in occupancy and room rates.Now, as a new oil boom is driving growth in the local economy and increased the demand for hotel rooms, Garg plans to build again.His family company, G&G Hospitality, recently took out a building permit from the city for an estimated $4 million extended-stay hotel at 201 South JBS Parkway. Plans call for a three-story Hawthorn Suites with 82 rooms.“Things have started picking up, and we see the need for an extended stay in the market,” Garg said. “People are coming in for longer assignments.”Indeed, market watchers say the new building coincides with a rebound in the local hotel market. But it remains to be seen whether another surge in hotel construction lies ahead, after the previous boom left the area overbuilt once demand cratered.“There could be another flurry of building, there absolutely could be — the numbers are there to support it,” said Keith Dial, past president of the Permian Basin Hotel and Lodging Association and a vice president with MTP Hospitality, which owns hotels in Midland and Odessa. “But people should really think hard, especially the financial folks because without a doubt we have come forward, but we will also go backward. It’s just the nature of it.”In Odessa, 2013 and 2014 saw a total of 14 hotels open or begin construction. The buildup left the city with more than 3,900 rooms by 2015. Some hotels that began building during the boom were forced to open as the market tanked. And today the Odessa Convention and Visitors Bureau reports more than 4,400 rooms.By 2016, Odessa hoteliers struggled to stay half full, averaging about 47 percent occupancy during the year.But their fortunes have improved amid increased oilfield activity, and room rates have rebounded.In some cases, rooms again run higher than $400 during the busiest weeknights, CVB director Monica Tschauner said.“That immediately raises eyebrows for those wanting to invest,” Tschauner said.Rooms at hotels in Odessa and Midland will regularly rent for well over $200, but Dial said it’s also increasingly common for hotels to cut deals for rate agreements with oil companies that rent several rooms at once.In G&G Hospitality’s case, Garg said they saw demand rise at their extended-stay hotel in Midland, a Mainstay Suites. That hotel, similar in size to the one they are building in Odessa, had struggled to reach 50 percent occupancy two years ago. But now they stay closer to 80 percent full. Garg said they had always planned to build the hotel on JBS Parkway and wished they had started a year ago. But the timing still seems right today, Garg said, and the goal is to open by the end of the year.“We were committed,” Garg said. “And I’ve been living here 17 years, so I’ve seen this cyclical pattern. I was confident. But you know, no one knows.”MorePrevious coverage: Oil drop affects local hotels Construction proceeds on the downtown hotel and convention center Wednesday after a heated debate at Tuesday’s city council meeting became a focal point between investor Sondra Eoff and city councilman Malcom Hamilton, which was supposed to be a discussion about the “pros and cons of single-member district representation, at-large representation, and strong mayor representation.” Local NewsBusiness Hotel building resumes as rates, occupancy climb Twitter Facebook WhatsApp Previous articleELDER: Tariffs and economic populism: Good politics, bad economicsNext articleNew OFR recruits sworn in admin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Pinterest By admin – March 17, 2018 Pinterest Rattler Midstream: 4Q Earnings Snapshot Snap Inc. to Participate in the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference 2021 Home Local News Business Hotel building resumes as rates, occupancy climb Facebook Octopus Energy U.S. to Discount Customers’ Bills by as Much as 90% WhatsApp Creamy Fruit SaladTexas Fried ChickenSmoked Bacon Wrapped French Vidalia OnionPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay
