Kirsteen Mackay | Thursday, 1st October, 2020 | More on: RR center_img I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) and Cineworld have both seen their share prices plunge over 80% in a year. Many British companies are struggling, but these two could be among the hardest hit. While some stocks have fully recovered from the lows of the Covid-19-induced market crash, others have fallen further. Two of these are Rolls-Royce and Cineworld.Debt and dilutionPrior to Covid-19, Rolls-Royce looked to have a perfect business model. It sold its aircraft engines at a loss, to benefit from a recurring income based on air miles flown. With a booming aviation industry, this was a great way to bring in a steady income stream. But the unforeseen global shutdown in flights put paid to this with devastating effect. It no longer has this recurring income that it relies on to keep its expensive business running.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…Rolls-Royce jet engine – Source: Rolls-RoyceThe Rolls-Royce share price is down 81% year-to-date and earnings per share are negative. There have been rumours of an impending rights issue for weeks and today it announced its plans to go ahead. It intends to raise £2bn through this fully underwritten 10 for 3 rights issue. This gives existing shareholders access to shares at 32p each, a 41% discount to the closing price of £1.30 per share yesterday. If successful, it will have access to a new two-year £1bn loan facility too.The company will also attempt to raise an additional £1bn through debt issuance in the bond market soon. And it’s received an indication of support in principle from the government department UK Export Finance to extend its 80% guarantee to support a potential £1bn increase in the company’s existing five-year £2bn loan.The FTSE 100 constituent hopes the rights issue will be enough to improve liquidity and reduce leverage on its balance sheet. It’s subject to shareholder approval at its AGM on October 27. Management has already cut 9,000 jobs and I think it’s doing all it can to survive the pandemic. Whether it can make a full recovery will very much depend on how quickly flight travel returns to 2019 levels.Cineworld’s dwindling revenueFTSE 250 firm Cineworld is another company suffering at the hands of Covid-19, but its problems started before that. It began acquiring cinema chains to propel it to become the biggest cinema group in the world. This may have been successful had Coronavirus not come along and scuppered its plans. It now has a mountain of debt and very little revenue coming in.Some 73% of its revenue usually comes from the US and considering the Covid-19 situation there, that’s not reassuring. Lockdowns continue and the upcoming election is causing political unrest. I don’t think this bodes well for cinema attendance to return to normal soon.Is now a good time to invest?Billionaire investor Warren Buffett once said that “it’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.”I agree, as long as the company is truly wonderful and likely to stand the test of time. I think Rolls-Royce could do this, considering its history, its importance to Britain and its involvement in artificial intelligence. However I’m not so sure about Cineworld. I think both the Rolls-Royce and Cineworld share prices will remain volatile until a vaccine is in circulation. Without a dividend, they look a risky buy.

Handcuffed fugitive steals police car, allegedly kidnaps woman while on the run

first_imgMissouri State Highway Patrol(HEAVENER, Okla.) — Authorities are searching for an escaped inmate who allegedly kidnapped a woman while on the loose and stole a police vehicle when officers attempted to recapture him. Police arrested Travis Lee Davis, 30, at a parking lot in Oklahoma, nearly 350 miles away from where he escaped, on Wednesday after a woman reported that he kidnapped her, but he managed to slip away once again, authorities said. Davis, who escaped from a jail in Pettis County, Missouri, Saturday night, was handcuffed behind his back and inside of a police cruiser, when he slipped into the driver’s seat and sped off with the vehicle, according to the Heavener Police Department. The officers were standing outside of the car and interviewing the alleged victim, who claimed Davis kidnapped her at gunpoint, when the suspect stole the vehicle and fled the scene, the Heavener Police Department said. Davis drove the car about 2 miles away from the scene before crashing into a tree and taking off on foot, according to police. Officers said he may have hopped on a nearby train. Authorities said they set up a 10-square-mile perimeter that they are searching and had reached out to the railroad system for help. Officers were searching on foot, with dogs, vehicles and circling the perimeter, but there were no signs of the suspect as of late Wednesday. “It is possible that Davis escaped the area by trespassing on a freight train, however, people in the area should keep their doors locked and be watchful for strangers,” the Heavener Police Department said in a statement Wednesday. “Anyone driving in the area should not pick up any hitch hiker and should definitely report them to the Leflore County Sheriffs Office.” Davis — who is considered dangerous — was being held on $110,000 bond for various charges, including kidnapping, endangering the welfare of a child, domestic assault, resisting arrest and parole violation, according to court documents. Missouri authorities believe Davis escaped from the jail at around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday by climbing into the ceiling. “Davis climbed up into the ceiling of G Pod, across the rafters, through a maintenance access hole in the concrete wall, into a maintenance access closet, which lead to an exterior exit on the S. Lamine side of the jail and fled on foot,” the Pettis County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement, citing interviews with inmates and surveillance footage. Davis is described as a white male, who is 6 feet tall and weighs 150 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He has several tattoos, including an eye inside a triangle on the front of his neck, and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and gray pants. Police said anyone with information on the escape or the suspect’s whereabouts should contact local law enforcement agency immediately. Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

NYPD investigating claims officer zapped 16-year-old’s face with stun gun

first_imgtillsonburg/iStockBy AARON KATERSKY and CHRISTINA CARREGA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The New York Police Department is investigating claims a 16-year-old Bronx student was zapped in the face with a stun gun and taken to the hospital without his family being notified after being arrested for allegedly setting fires.The family of Jahmel Leach wants answers about the boy’s arrest for fifth-degree arson, a misdemeanor, during looting on East Fordham Road that ended with an officer allegedly using a stun gun on Leach’s face and taking him to St. Barnabas Hospital.Family members, who said the teen was merely watching, not partaking in vandalism or looting, around 9 p.m. of June 1, held a news conference outside the Bronx District Attorney’s Office on Thursday.“The police department is supposed to take an oath to protect and serve, not just us — the youth,” said Daisy Acevedo, Leach’s mother, adding that she would “protect my child and I will do so to my last breath.”Acevedo said she was not notified of the arrest until he arrived at the hospital, a violation of legislation passed in October 2018.Law enforcement sources told ABC News that Acevedo “was notified of his status by 11:30 p.m.”While District Attorney Darcel Clark’s office is not prosecuting Leach’s criminal case, it is investigating the allegations of misconduct, a spokeswoman confirmed to ABC News on Thursday. Leach’s case is expected to be heard in family court.“It is clear after what happened to Jahmel Leach at the hands of the NYPD, in addition to legislation aimed at ending police brutality, what is also needed is a change in the mentality of police officers in this city who believe they can brutally treat victims like they did this 16-year-old and they will not be held accountable for their wrongful acts,” said Sanford Rubenstein, an attorney for Leach.Officers initially spotted him leaving a vandalized T-Mobile store, but not in possession of any property, an NYPD official said.NYPD said body camera footage shows the teen lighting a pile of rubbish on the street as officers arrived on the scene in an unmarked vehicle.According to surveillance video obtained by ABC News on Thursday, Leach also is seen standing next to an unidentified person before the unmarked car approached.As an officer exits the vehicle, a stun gun appears to be deployed, striking Leach, who falls flat on his face, the video shows.Officers are seen in the video rushing toward Leach as one officer strikes him twice with a baton — once behind the knee, once on the back.On the bodycam footage, the teen is heard telling police officers, “I didn’t set the fire,” before saying, “They made me do it,” sources told ABC News.“The matter is under internal review,” an NYPD spokesperson told ABC News on Thursday morning.The family said an officer involved in the incident later told Acevedo, “I’m sorry, he is so tall I thought he was an adult when I took him down.”“I demand justice and won’t stop until I get it,” Acevedo added.The teen and his family confronted Mayor Bill de Blasio at a memorial service in Brooklyn for George Floyd last Thursday.Floyd’s May 25 killing in Minneapolis was captured by a bystander’s cellphone. Four terminated officers of the Minneapolis Police Department were charged in connection to his murder.Almost a week later, de Blasio spoke out on Twitter about Leach’s case and verified that the police are investigating the matter.“I’m really troubled by what they told me. We’re going to get them answers,” the mayor wrote.“The virus of police brutality has spread, and it doesn’t seem like it will be cured. We will fight for justice for him,” said Rev. Kevin McCall, a civil rights leader who has been on the front lines of protests with Terrence Floyd, the brother of George Floyd. “I’m calling on the police commissioner to meet with him regarding the NYPD using excessive force on an incident bystander.”Several NYPD officers have been disciplined for allegations of misconduct during the protests. So far, two have been suspended and a third was placed on modified duty. A precinct commander has been transferred.“I took action the last couple weeks in suspending a number of officers,” Commissioner Dermot Shea said during an internal pep talk he hosted on Twitter. “There will probably be more.”Police actions during the protests will come under review by the New York Attorney General’s office. Former United States Attorney General Loretta Lynch has been brought on as an adviser.The city’s school chancellor, Richard Carranza, also spoke out about what happened to Leach.“I am horrified. … The New York City Department of Education condemns police brutality and any brutal acts by those whose duty is to serve and protect our communities. New Yorkers and Americans — including our students — are crying out for change. We must hear them, respect them and heed their calls. We are here for Jahmel and his family,” Carranza wrote, in part.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Buskers code

first_imgOxford buskers will be forced to face the music if a council code of conduct restricting their performance is ratified this week. A 13-point code of conduct governing all buskers working in Oxford is expected to come into force next month. The code was born out of wide-ranging consultations with both residents and businesses, and aims to ensure that musicians perform only in areas where they are least likely to cause disruption. Other measures include plans to limit the amount of time a musician may play for, as well as the issue of special ‘Busker’s permits’ which will only be given to those who agree to comply with the code of conduct. This is in response to what the council sees as the growing problem of buskers performing in areas where they are causing annoyance, such as in front of offices and in academic buildings. Classicist Laura Green welcomes the move if it prevents busking from disturbing library study, which she claims is “really inconsiderate.” The response amongst the busking community has been decidedly lukewarm. Phil Freizinger, a popular street musician, welcomes what he sees as an “official recognition of the value of street music” but wonders why the council needed to create the new regulations.ARCHIVE:  1st Week MT2003last_img read more
