  11. Is the Rolls-Royce share price cheap at 100p? (07/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) share price has struggled to make headway over the past couple of months. We did see an impressive rally late last year from 40p to around 135p. Recently, the share price has since fallen back to trade in a range between 100p and 110p. Given that shares were trading above 200p at the start of last year, does the current price make it a cheap buy? A tight trading range I think there are a few reasons why the Rolls-Royce share price is currently trading in a tight range around 100p. Firstly, I think a lot of investors are waiting on the sidelines for half-year results. These are due out on 5 August. This should provide a more detailed picture of how the business has coped in the period when lockdown restrictions were starting to end. In theory, this should support the share price if the planned outlook financials are raised. However, nothing is certain at the moment, and so some are likely keeping their powder dry until August. Another reason for the lack of movement recently could be due to the policy regarding Covid-19 restrictions. The anticipated freedom day in June has been pushed back to later in July. The international travel traffic light system hasn’t been the most efficient process. This has meant that the amount of flights and commercial aviation has been limited. Due to the ties Rolls-Royce has to this sector, I’m not surprised that the share price hasn’t been able to find a positive catalyst to move higher. Is the current Rolls-Royce share price fair? It’s hard to confidently say that the Rolls-Royce share price is cheap at current levels around 100p. This is because what is cheap to me might not be to someone else.  A traditional method would be to look at the price-to-earnings ratio. Usually, a low ratio could indicate that a stock is undervalued and cheap. However, Rolls-Royce made a loss last year, so the ratio is negative.  It’s also hard to rank Rolls-Royce against other companies as it depends on what sector I put it in. If I compare it to BAE Systems with a P/E ratio of 11.3, then I would say the share price looks cheap. What about if I compare it to an aviation company like International Consolidated Airlines Group? IAG has an even more negative P/E ratio than Rolls-Royce. So I could argue that IAG offers better value than the current Rolls-Royce share price. I could also look internally at Rolls-Royce. If the half-year results show a reduction in debt and good cash savings, this should help to boost the net asset value. In turn, this naturally should help to push the Rolls-Royce share price higher, as the fundamental value of the business has increased.  2021 net debt (pre-disposals) is expected at £4bn, but potentially getting back £2bn with disposal proceeds. Again, I’m going to have to wait until next month for an update on how well this is going. Overall, I think the Rolls-Royce share price is fairly priced around 100p right now. However, results next month will allow me to get a much better picture in this regard, depending on earnings and debt levels.

  15. The Rolls-Royce share price is rising this week. Should I buy? (18/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    For years, I’ve liked Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR), but I’ve never got around to buying. Whenever the time came for me to make an investment, Rolls never quite made the top of my list. Maybe the Rolls-Royce share price looked a bit too high at the time. Or, more usually, there’s just something else I liked better. Warren Buffett famously spoke of investing in Gillette, and the warm feeling he got every morning when he thought of the millions around the world shaving with a new blade. I’ve always had similar feelings watching airline departures and arrivals. And thinking of all those lucrative maintenance contracts bringing in the cash for Rolls-Royce. But no comparison is perfect. Chins are still being shaved around the world during Covid lockdown. But the planes aren’t flying, and the Rolls-Royce share price has suffered. We’ve seen a modest climb this week though. Since market close last Friday, Rolls-Royce shares are up 8%, as I write. But I’d never make an investment decision based solely on short-term share price moves. And the bigger picture isn’t so pretty. Feeling bullish We’re close to a year on from the start of the Covid-19 stock market crash. And, in that year, the Rolls-Royce share price has fallen 58%. But it had been slipping even before that. Over the past two years, Rolls-Royce shares are down 70%. So we’re looking at a pandemic catastrophe on top of an existing downward trend. So why am I starting to feel positive towards the stock? Well, my reason is essentially that I still see the long-term business as sound. When Rolls-Royce will get back to profit, I really can’t guess. And I still expect the rest of 2021 to be rocky for the Rolls-Royce share price. Then there’s the huge amount of debt the company’s had to take on, amounting to around £4bn now. That will have to be addressed some day. But, for now, the key question is whether Rolls will make it through the rest of this crunch year. The firm’s latest update at the end of January essentially said things are in line with expectations. Rolls expects free cash outflow of around £2bn in 2021, and I could see a few eyes watering at the prospects of that. But at the end of 2020, the company had around £9bn in liquidity — which it described as “at the upper end of the previously guided range.” Rolls-Royce share price cheap? Rolls-Royce is hoping for an upturn in the aviation business in the second half of the year. And that’s where I think the big risk lies. The Covid vaccination programme is progressing reasonably well. But there almost seems to be a new virus variant every week. And the government is still urging against booking fly-away holidays just yet. Still, with the Rolls-Royce share price around £1, or less, I really am tempted to buy. But I still don’t know whether I will. Again, it’ll depend on what other options might look more promising when the time for my next purchase comes along. One stock for a post-Covid world… Covid-19 is ripping the investment world in two… Some companies have seen exploding cash-flows, soaring valuations and record results… …Others are scrimping and suffering. Entire industries look to be going extinct. Such world-changing events may only happen once in a lifetime. And it seems there’s no middle ground. Financially, you’ll want to learn how to get positioned on the winning side. That’s why our expert analysts have put together this special report. If the pandemic has completely changed our lives forever, then they believe that this stock, hidden inside the tech-heavy NASDAQ, could be set for monstrous gains… Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this US stock… free of charge!

  16. The Rolls Royce share price is below 100p – so is it a buy? (20/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    I have to say that whenever the Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price is below the rather arbitrary 100p per share level, I’m tempted to look into whether buying the shares is worthwhile. Well, that’s the case right now. At the time of writing the shares have dipped to around 90p. Hard to imagine that five years ago, the shares were 250p and at the start of 2020 they were 233p. A lot has changed since then. Are there reasons for optimism? One of the biggest potential reasons to be cheerful has to be around the resumption of travel. With many Britons double vaccinated, holidays could be back on the cards. Although restrictions in other countries and slower progress in long-haul destinations like Australia may hold back progress towards travel resuming as normal anytime soon. Rolls-Royce is likely to accelerate away from a reliance on commercial airlines and exciting new technologies like modular nuclear power stations, as well as more work in the defence industry, could make earnings more reliable and stable. Given how badly the shares have done, there’s the paradox that any good news – especially any pleasant surprises – could well see the Rolls-Royce share price do well. I suspect expectations are now so low that there could be significant upside. The CEO has been at Rolls-Royce since 2015, so there’s a steady hand at the helm. At this difficult time a settled and competent management team is absolutely vital and I think it’s reassuring to any investor. Once the worst of the pandemic is over Roll-Royce can once again target better cash flow. All that said, its chair is set to change later on this year, but hopefully by October we’ll be starting to see more air travel and Rolls-Royce getting off its knees. The bad news for the Rolls-Royce share price It’s much easier to find bad news. Revenues are unlikely to recover to anywhere near normal levels soon. In 2022 it’s forecast revenues will still be significantly below where they were in 2015. The company has been loss-making for the last few years and margins have fallen through the floor. Not all the problems with the Rolls-Royce share price can be blamed on the pandemic. Remember, the Trent engine problems meant the engineer was hemorrhaging money before anyone had heard of Covid-19. For now, given it makes so much money from how many air miles planes fly, Rolls-Royce remains at the mercy of the pandemic. Would I invest? That’s why on balance I think there are better investments than Rolls-Royce out there. Given the challenges the company faces, I think buying the shares is a gamble and one I’m personally unlikely to take. But if the shares dip even further, I may reconsider that view as a rather contrarian long-term investment.

  17. Could the Rolls-Royce share price fall below 100p? (27/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    One of the frustrating things for shareholders in Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) in recent months has been its struggle to maintain altitude. The Rolls-Royce share price reached 127p in March. But since then it has moved markedly lower. Over the past year, it has lost 10% of its value. So might the shares might fall beneath 100p? Why has the Rolls-Royce share price been falling? One of the points to consider is what has been exerting downward pressure on the aerospace giant’s share price lately. The company is significantly exposed to air travel. The more hours planes with its engines installed fly, the greater its service revenue. Over the past couple of months, hopes of increased European travel have been dampened. I think that has affected the share price. Reasons to be bullish But I see some positive signs for the Rolls-Royce share price. For example, the company said this month that performance so far this year has been in line with expectations across all of its business units. That lack of nasty surprises should help restore some investor confidence in Rolls-Royce. The company has repeatedly said that it expects to turn free cash flow positive in the second half of this year. That would be big news, as lately it has been bleeding cash. If it is able to turn free cash flow positive, that will reassure investors about its liquidity. Last year, a rights issue was heavily dilutive. If shareholders are more comfortable about liquidity growing due to free cash flow, it could be positive for the Rolls-Royce share price. Will the shares fall below 100p? Despite what I regard as positive developments, the Rolls-Royce share price has been drifting downwards lately. If there are more reasons to doubt the speed and scale of European aviation recovery, I think that could easily push the shares below 100p. Any further delay to the free cash flow target would also hit the shares badly in my view. So, I don’t think the shares will necessarily stay above 100p. I could certainly see them falling below that level again. My move on the Rolls-Royce share price But I think the longer-term outlook for the Rolls-Royce share price remains good. Flying demand will come back, in my view – it’s just a matter of time. There are some promising signs outside Europe. Already in the US, for example, United Airlines has upgraded its second-quarter earnings forecast. Such improved demand should help Rolls-Royce. I still think the Rolls-Royce share price could get to 150p or higher this year. But I don’t like how sensitive the share price is to demand recovery in the aviation sector. It has no control over that so is effectively a hostage to fortune. For that reason, even though I do see potential upside, I’m not currently planning to buy Rolls-Royce shares.

  20. Rolls-Royce share price: what’s in store in the coming months? (26/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) was one of the biggest losers of the stock market crash caused by Covid-19 last year. What is ahead for the Rolls-Royce share price in the coming months, and is there an opportunity here for me to pick up cheap shares? Rolls-Royce share price woes Between February 2020 and September 2020, the Rolls-Royce share price lost 80%. Across the whole of 2020, the Rolls-Royce share price declined by over 50%. Its debt levels rose as it borrowed to keep the lights on, and it also cut jobs and announced a rights issue to generate cash flow. In December, the Rolls-Royce share price experienced its highest post-Covid-19 price. Shares were trading for 135p per share. Since that time, however, the share price has fallen over 20%.  Challenges and outlook ahead Airlines are operating more than at this time last year. The issue here is that Covid-19 is still rife and there could be further restrictions if another wave hits. In terms of Rolls-Royce, I believe the overall outlook is improving. I do believe, as I write, the worst of the crisis is over. It has taken the necessary steps to see it through some tough times and has begun to shore up its once-beleaguered balance sheet. There are still some challenges it needs to overcome, however. In a recent trading update, Rolls-Royce predicted a free cash outflow in the region of £2bn in 2021. This is money that is going out of the business that its management team will need to find from somewhere. In the same update, it did mention its £9bn liquidity, which is a good sign in my opinion. This should help with the cash outflow mentioned. The Rolls-Royce share price could benefit in the future if ambitions are achieved. It believes it can generate over £700m of free cash flow by 2022. This is a projection based on past figures and flying hours of engines. Cash is king and this could put Rolls-Royce in a much better position.  My verdict I believe there is lots of recovery potential linked to the Rolls-Royce share price. The issue I have is that this recovery is linked to Covid-19. I don’t think it can handle another scenario whereby planes are grounded and it faces severe losses. It must be noted that different parts of the world are in different states related to the virus. The US seems to be flourishing from an aviation perspective and is a market Rolls-Royce can capitalise on. Asia is struggling right now with a deadly variant, and there seems to be another lockdown on the horizon over there. I believe the current Rolls-Royce share price is not reflective of its improving stature, and I think it will creep up over the coming months. I class it as a high-risk investment but I think it is priced quite low right now. It could make an interesting recovery play for my portfolio. Right now, I would not invest in Rolls Royce shares but will keep a keen eye on developments.  Away from Rolls Royce, here is a tech stock that recently underwent an IPO that I have examined. CEO’s £500,000,000 Stake on Industry’s “Uber” Revolution We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign. But with this opportunity it could get even better. Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology. And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises. This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry. Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion. The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike. And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running! But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead. Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees.

  21. Rolls-Royce shares: 1 reason to buy and 1 reason to sell (11/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) was one of the companies hardest hit by last year’s stock market crash. It didn’t really partake in the late 2020 recovery either. And the Rolls-Royce share price is still down around 65% over the past two years. Pandemic meant lockdown, lockdown meant nobody flying. Nobody flying meant no aircraft engine maintenance. Well, there was some, but well below normal levels. But with the end of Covid restrictions moving ever closer, many are heading off on their hols again. And that’s my chosen reason I’d think of buying Rolls-Royce shares. In a recovery situation, I want to see a troubled company’s business starting to pick up again. Or, at least, strong indications it’s about to happen any day now. I’m hoping we’ll see some hard evidence of recovery with first-half results, due on 5 August. Rolls-Royce share price: ready for the rebound? I think we might see a spark of interest in the Rolls-Royce share price in the days leading up to that. But in the meantime, I’m buoyed by the firm’s AGM statement from May. Chief executive Warren East said: “Looking ahead, we are confident that the significant restructuring actions we have taken in 2020 will deliver permanent cost reductions, positioning us well for the rebound in international air travel.“ So we have a leaner and more cost-efficient Rolls-Royce now, and that’s maybe not a bad thing anyway. I’ve always liked the company ,and from this direction it looks like a ‘buy’. But what’s the other angle, and why might I rate it a sell? In a word, cash. Rolls-Royce needed to take on a whole new financing deal just to keep going. Part of that involved raising around £2bn from disposals. But the company also raised £7.3bn from new debt and equity. That was in a year that resulted in a pre-tax loss of £2.9bn, and a free cash outflow of £4.2bn. Share price valuation Those are scary, scary numbers. And they make all previous valuation metrics utterly meaningless. With the degree of restructuring that’s been needed, we’re essentially looking at an an entirely new version of Rolls-Royce now. And it’ll surely take some time for markets to settle on a sensible long-term valuation. It’ll definitely take me some time to work out where I think the Rolls-Royce share price should be. I can’t see things settling this year. The company said it’s targeting positive free cash flow in the second half of 2021. And it hopes to reach at least £750m by 2022. If that comes off, my confidence will be boosted. But there’s still significant risk here. And my biggest fear is that the cash could run out and Rolls-Royce might need further financing. If that happens, a resulting combination of more debt and more equity dilution would throw all valuation measures further up in the air again. Hopefully, we’ll get a clearer idea of how the financial picture is looking once we have those H1 figures. Until then, I’m just watching.

  28. Why is the Rolls-Royce share price having such an uncertain June? (21/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) is one of the few FTSE 100 stocks that, as my Motley Fool colleague Rupert Hargreaves pointed out, has essentially gone nowhere over the past 12 months. It’s pretty much flat since the start of 2021 too. But looking a little closer, we can see the the Rolls-Royce share price has actually been through a lot of short-term ups and downs. Looking at June alone, Rolls shares have lurched between a high of 113.5p and a low of 104p. That’s a swing of 9% from lowest to highest, and way more volatile than the Footsie. Similarly sized ups and downs have been going on for months. It’s as if investors keep wanting to get in, keep thinking maybe the time is ripe for the recovery to start… and then it doesn’t take off and fades again, until the next time. I know it’s dangerous to read too much into short-term share price volatility. And I would never make an investing decision based on what the Rolls-Royce share price has done over the past few months or so. But if my speculations on investor sentiment are anywhere near the truth, they’re really just reflecting my own thoughts. I like the company The thing is, I’ve liked Rolls-Royce for a long time. And it’s one company that I’d really like to buy a chunk of at a cheap price. The company had hit a tough patch even before the pandemic brought a near halt to aviation. I reckon that presented a good buy at the time for investors with a long-term horizon. But it’s history now. I really do think the Rolls-Royce share price will recover from its current hammering. The only thing I just can’t get my head round is how long it might take for a sustainable profits recovery to set in. Oh, two things — and whether Rolls has the liquidity needed to see it through to such times. If it hasn’t, we might see further falls. In the past month, I can’t help feeling the delayed lifting of the UK’s final Covid-19 restrictions has made investors a bit twitchy again. Right now, Boris Johnson has said it’s “looking good” for the new target date of 19 July to be met. But, well, he’s said a lot of things over the years. Rolls-Royce share price uprating? So what are my thoughts now about the next stage for Rolls as an investment? To turn my own sentiment sufficiently bullish, I think I’ll need to see a positive set of results. In particular, I want to see how the balance sheet and cashflow situation are looking. Once we see clearer developments on those fronts, if we see them, I can see the Rolls-Royce share price enjoying an uprating. When might that come? First-half results should be with us on 5 August, and that’s really not very long now. By then, we should have firmer news on the pandemic front. And, hopefully, a bit of confidence returning to the aviation business. I’ll be waiting at least that long before I finally decide, and possibly a good bit longer. I think there’s probably a 50/50 chance that I’ll end up buying Rolls-Royce shares one day.

  29. Rolls-Royce earnings: here’s what will help me decide to buy more shares (10/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    FTSE 100 stock Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) will release its earnings report on Thursday 11th March at 9am. It is well expected that the company will report its biggest annual loss in history and go into depth about the detrimental impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the business. Nonetheless, I think there might be light at the end of the tunnel for Rolls-Royce shares. Here are the main reasons why I am re-entering Rolls-Royce albeit tentatively, as I think there is a chance that we see a positive rise of the share price after earnings. Rolls-Royce is expected to report its biggest loss ever The market is already expecting the company to have its biggest ever loss on record so that isn’t likely to spook the share price if it is indeed reported. In fact, International Airlines Group recently reported a loss of £7.5 billion and its share price rose 3.5%; I am hoping that we might see something like that for Rolls-Royce’s shares. Reasons the stock could rise I am hoping that the management comes out speaking upbeat on its recovery, especially in terms of its aerospace division. This division manufactures and services engines for the airline industry and makes up 50% of the company’s total earnings. Therefore, with the vaccination roll-out going better than expected in the UK and improving globally, this is positive for Rolls-Royce’s main revenue stream especially as more airlines are now travelling than they did in the fourth quarter. Additionally, I hope we hear more from management about this and that they provide upbeat guidance for the rest of the year, especially with foreign holidays from the UK set to be allowed from 17th May. Reasons Rolls-Royce shares could fall A key metric to focus on will be its liquidity position (cash). During the pandemic, the management team reacted quickly and raised money from a rights issue. They also took measures to cut-costs to make the business leaner, which I think has only made the company a more attractive proposition if it can survive this pandemic. However, if we were to hear that Rolls-Royce may need to do another round of financing, or if it raises concerns about its cash position being able to survive a longer-than-expected recovery, this could send the share price falling. Why I am buying Nevertheless, although the shares have recovered somewhat, they are still significantly down from Rolls-Royce’s pre-pandemic levels of over 600p. That’s why I think now, before its FY earnings, is a great chance to get into this stock. Therefore, I am buying more shares in this global brand in the hope of a boost after earnings, but I will be holding a little bit of money back in case a ‘buy the dip’ opportunity presents itself instead.

  30. The Rolls-Royce share price could be on the road to recovery (27/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    With the Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price dropping below 100p, I am tempted to buy this stock before the civil aerospace company’s recovery becomes fully realised. But with possible further damage to the aviation sector brewing because of new variants of coronavirus such as the Delta variant, some investors might see this share as one to be avoided. Here, I explain why I will be betting on a favourable future in 2021 for Rolls-Royce. Another lockdown could be devastating for Rolls-Royce First things first, I need to look at what another lockdown could mean for the Rolls-Royce share price. With no planes in the air due to travel restrictions, Rolls-Royce would continue to lose revenue on its maintenance contracts as these are dependent on airtime. This would be a big blow for the company because these contracts contribute to Rolls-Royce’s main bulk of revenue, whereas the company only just about breaks even on the initial sale. However, this is just speculation for now, and the situation looks a lot better than it did last year. Rolls-Royce is not making any adaptations to its recovery plan for the time being, and with air travel having its busiest weekend since the pandemic hit, I am quite hopeful that this is a sign of positive things to come. Rolls-Royce restructuring programme Following on from its cost saving plan from 2020, Rolls-Royce estimated that it saved £1bn beyond its expectations before the pandemic arrived. The company now aims to reach £1.3bn in operating costs and capital spend savings by the end of next year. Of course, we can see that Rolls-Royce is steadfastly committed to its restructuring programme as it temporarily shut down its plant in Renfrewshire this week. With the company continuing to do good on its word to cut costs, I am convinced that its commitment will lead to more investor confidence on the Rolls-Royce share price. Further, the balance sheet looks a lot healthier than compared to last year, and the threat of bankruptcy is no longer in sight. This is mainly because the company secured £7.3m in additional liquidity in 2020. If the company meets its expectations of turning cash flow positive in the second half of 2021, then I think this success will attract a lot of buyers. This could lead to a very profitable return for me if I add this share to my portfolio before Rolls-Royce announces its interim results on the 5th of August. Will the Rolls-Royce share price recover? The dark times of Covid-19 could very well be behind us, but with this new Delta variant and any more variants to come, the situation could change very quickly. The effects of another lockdown would most likely damage Rolls-Royce’s progress, and its thoughts of turning cash flow positive would become an all-forgotten dream. However, I think that the current situation points in a more positive direction. Passengers are flying again, and the government is putting more countries on the green list. I also have confidence that Rolls-Royce’s restructuring procedure will put it on the road to recovery. Whilst it may still be a bit of a bumpy ride for the Rolls-Royce share price, I will be buying this stock as a recovery play.

  31. Where will the Rolls-Royce share price go in June? (31/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) has had one of the rockiest rides of the pandemic. Rolls has been up and down so far in 2021, going nowhere really in May. And we’re still looking at a fall of more than 60% over the past two years. Now, I’m going to say right up front, I’ve no idea where the Rolls-Royce share price is going to go in June. But we’re heading for developments that should affect the longer term. And I still can’t work out whether to buy Rolls-Royce shares as a recovery pick. For one, the next step in pandemic opening up is scheduled for 21 June. On that day, the government has pencilled in the removal of the final legal restrictions on social and business movements. Saying that, there’s that Indian variant thing. And the Prime Minister has already said we might have to wait a bit longer to get our full freedoms back. Further delays could see the Rolls-Royce share price weaken in June. Still, the opening up that we’re already enjoying is having its effect. In particular, sun-seekers are heading for the beaches again. And some travel-related shares are recovering. International Consolidated Airlines shares are up 26% so far in 2021, with easyJet not far behind with a 21% gain. TUI hasn’t had such a good year so far though, dropping a few percent. And the Rolls-Royce share price is down 4%. Rolls-Royce share price drivers It’s probably going to be a while before the travel sector recovery feeds through to Rolls-Royce. It’ll take time before engine maintenance requirements start to ramp up again. The other critical thing is that Rolls-Royce suffered big loss in 2020, and needed a major financial rescue package. There’s still cash on the books to keep the aerospace engineer going for a while yet. But will it be enough to last until profits return? The uncertainty behind that question must, surely, weigh heavily on the Rolls-Royce share price for at least a few months yet. At full-year results time, Rolls wasn’t in a position to make much in the way of predictions. That’s not surprising, as the company spoke of the uncertainties of the near- and medium-term outlook for civil aviation. It’s all about cash And we shouldn’t expect the cash situation to reverse in the current year. With those results, Rolls said it expects free cash flow to turn positive in the second half of 2021. But it still expects to suffer a free cash outflow of around £2bn for the full year. The company is hoping for positive free cash flow in 2022 of at least £750m. But that depends critically on the pace of recovery in flying hours, and the success of the firm’s cost-cutting strategy. I’m keenly awaiting first-half results due on 5 August. Any updates on the expected cash flow situation could drive the Rolls-Royce share price in either direction. In the meantime, any positive news from the aviation business in June and beyond would be welcome. I’m not buying yet. I’m going to wait for the clouds of uncertainty to clear a bit.

  32. The Rolls-Royce share price: 3 things that could give it a boost (29/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The one thing that really could give Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) a boost is an end to travel restrictions. But the reverse is happening right now amid a Covid-19 Delta variant surge. As a result, the Rolls-Royce share price ended Monday down 5.6%, as travel-related stocks declined across the board. Rather than opening up to British travellers, Spain and Portugal have both announced new restrictions. They include the need for vaccination certificates and negative tests, with quarantine as an alternative. Rolls-Royce isn’t the only one suffering, as TUI, International Consolidated Airlines, and the other airlines have all lost ground. We might see some respite should the UK’s restrictions end as hoped on 19 July. But while we still face continually changing pandemic uncertainty, I really can’t see the Rolls-Royce share price getting that one boost that it really needs just yet. Still, pandemic problems will surely only delay the Rolls recovery, won’t they? I mean, that recovery is sure to come, isn’t it? I’m convinced there will be a recovery, but I’m concerned over how long it will take. And the shape of the company that comes out of it could have an impact on Rolls’ long-term valuation. Debt, balance sheet What I’m getting at here is the balance sheet. And progress on that front is the next thing that I think could help the Rolls-Royce share price. Rolls is disposing of its Spanish subsidiary ITP Aero, for around €1.5bn, and that will surely help. The rescue package at Rolls got the company out of its crisis. But it involved taking on £7.3bn in new debt in the 2020 year. I think that’s manageable, providing the company can maintain sufficient liquidity to keep it going until the cash flow taps start opening again. If it can’t, we could see a further round of fundraising. And that would surely hammer the share price again. Right now, we’re looking at a race between Rolls-Royce’s business turnaround and the cash running out. The closer we get to knowing which will win, the greater the effect we should see on the share price. Rolls-Royce share price, medium term These are two nebulous issues, so is there anything more concrete? Well, first-half results are due on 5 August. And I expect the update will be one of the most keenly awaited in the FTSE 100 this year. And everyone will presumably be looking to the state of the firm’s balance sheet. With flying hours hardly changed so far this year, I’ll be looking for anything suggesting that possible further refinancing is on the cards. I’ll be hoping we don’t get it, and looking for upbeat outlook news. If the company makes optimistic noises regarding its balance sheet, and appears confident that it has enough liquidity, I think the shares could get a boost. I do see a strong long-term future for the company. But in the short-to-medium term, I fear events are more likely to have a negative effect than positive. I will not buy for now.

  33. Will the Rolls-Royce share price rise in July? (25/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Rolls-Royce Holdings (LSE: RR) share price has been grounded over the last year. As I write, the aero engine firm’s shares have risen by just 5% since June 2020. That leaves them well behind the 15% gain delivered by the FTSE 100 over the same period. I reckon investors have put Rolls in a holding pattern while they wait to see when air travel will really get started again. But with travel restrictions now being lifted more widely, will July be the month when the market takes a fresh look at Rolls-Royce shares? What do we know already? The last trading update from Rolls-Royce came in May. CEO Warren East said that flying hours during the first four months of 2021 were 60% below 2019 levels. This was pretty much as expected. Flying on long-haul routes has been supported by cargo demand and airlines preserving their airport slots by flying near-empty planes. East said that vaccination progress in the US and UK was “encouraging” but admitted the timing of a wider recovery was still “uncertain”. Rolls-Royce’s other business units were said to be performing as expected, with defence especially strong. A turning point? Rolls-Royce expects to start generating free cash flow “at some point during the second half of 2021.” When this happens will depend on how quickly engine flying hours recover, driving up billable revenue. I reckon this could be a key turning point for the Rolls-Royce share price. Free cash flow is essential to Rolls’ recovery. Without this, the group can’t start to repay debt. More widely, I think investors may be waiting to see if East can deliver on his free cash flow forecasts. Even before the pandemic, these targets were a key part of his turnaround strategy. The next trading update from Rolls-Royce is due on 5 August. I’ll be watching closely for any changes to the company’s forecasts. Rolls-Royce share price: up in July? At about 108p, Rolls-Royce stock has already risen by 170% from the lows of 40p seen when the company launched a £5bn refinancing last October. After such strong gains, is a recovery already priced into the shares? I estimate that Rolls-Royce’s current valuation is about 20% below the level seen at the end of 2019, including debt. If profits return to pre-pandemic levels, I can see some room for further share price gains. Broker forecasts also seem quite encouraging to me. Consensus forecasts for 2022 price Rolls’ stock on 25 times earnings. This multiple falls to 15 times earnings for 2023, when profits are expected to rise above 2019 levels. If international travel really takes off in July, then I think we could see Rolls-Royce’s share price move higher next month. However, I think a fair level of recovery is already priced into the stock. Any disappointments could cause the price to slump again. For this reason, I won’t be buying Rolls-Royce shares at current levels. I don’t think the potential rewards are big enough to outweigh the risks.

  34. I’d buy Rolls-Royce shares despite the big 2020 loss (17/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    I’ve been bullish on Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) shares for sometime. Last week the FTSE 100 stock released its 2020 full-year results and I can’t say I was too surprised with what the company reported. I think most of the bad news is out in the open for Rolls-Royce shares. And from here, the company and share price are likely to recover so I’d buy the stock. But here’s what I drew from its recent results. Big hit 2020 wasn’t a great year for Rolls-Royce. Revenue and profitability took a big hit. In fact, total sales were down 24% to £11.8bn. The company also suffered a £4bn loss over the year, which included a £1.7bn finance charge. To be honest, I’m not shocked by the big negative numbers. Investors knew Rolls-Royce’s situation was struggling last year and understandably so given the pandemic. It’s no surprise to me that the Civil Aerospace division suffered the worst impact. Rolls-Royce’s largest business took a nose-dive because of Covid-19 travel restrictions. Its revenue just dried up, which was reflected in the results. But I’ll stop with the negative news now and turn to the reasons why I’d buy Rolls-Royce shares. Liquidity Last year, Rolls-Royce took big steps to improve its liquidity position. It raised money through a rights issue and put further credit facilities in place. So at the end of its 2020 financial year, Rolls-Royce had access to a grand total of £9bn in liquidity, including £3.5bn in cash and £5.5bn in undrawn credit. It expects a cash outflow of £2bn in 2021. This is weighted towards the first half of the year before Rolls-Royce expects cash flow to turn positive at some point in the second half of this year. What I take from this is that the company has enough money to weather the storm in the short term. By my calculations, there’s a wiggle room of £7bn in liquidity provided that things continue as expected. Power Systems & Defence divisions The Power Systems and Defence divisions held up well last year. Both businesses accounted for 23% and 29% of Rolls-Royce 2020 full-year revenue respectively. I’ve mentioned this before, but the Defence business provides Rolls-Royce with some revenue stability and visibility. So I’m not surprised, given that revenues took a hit in 2020, that the Defence division accounted for a larger portion of sales. In 2019, this same division only accounted for 20% of revenue. What I think is pleasing to see is that the Defence business has 90% order cover for 2021. The company also predicts steady growth from this division into the medium term. My view Rolls-Royce is highly dependent on the lifting of travel restrictions and the vaccine rollout. Any delays or setbacks mean a further impact to revenue and profitability. This could also place pressure on liquidity and it may need to raise more money, which would be negative for the shares. I recognise that the recovery from the pandemic will take time and I don’t think the dividend will resume any time soon. But I’m still optimistic about the prospects for Rolls-Royce shares. I think the worst is over for the company and hence I’d buy now. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

  35. Does the Rolls-Royce share price make me want to buy in 2021? (21/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    As stock market crash stories go, the Rolls-Royce Group (LSE: RR) one is not pretty. But is there going to be a happy ending? Disappointingly, the Rolls-Royce share price recovery has gone off the boil a little, and the price is down so far in 2021. Over the past two years, the damage amounts to a painful 68% fall. Rolls-Royce depends on civil aviation for the biggest slice of its income. And while planes were grounded and engines didn’t need maintenance and repair, income for Rolls was hammered. It’s important to remember, though, that that’s not all there is to Rolls-Royce. The firm also has power systems and defence divisions. Still, the grounding of passenger planes was tough. But things are starting to look better now. Or are they? Folks in the UK seem to be super keen to book their holidays in the sun (almost as keen as they are to get back to the pubs, it seems). And the early 2021 recovery in the Rolls-Royce share price was surely based on anticipation of a sun-seeking summer. Some transport firms, including TUI, have made positive sounds about the prospects for international summer holidays this year. It might happen, and the Rolls-Royce share price could head upwards again. New Covid fears But fresh Covid-19 waves have already started around the world. And only this week, the British Prime Minister warned that we’re likely to see a third wave this year. I doubt it will be as devastating as those already past. But I won’t be booking any flights just yet. The prospects for 2021 don’t really matter too much for me anyway. No, I’m thinking of the longer-term future for the Rolls-Royce share price. About what things will be like in, say, five years. And whether the current valuation of the company suggests the shares are a bargain. And that’s where I’m just not sure. Firstly, Rolls-Royce did get itself into a sustainable financial situation. At least, I think it did, for now at least. Unless things get stretched and the company has to go back to the markets for a fresh injection of cash, that is. Is that likely? If the aviation business doesn’t get going again fairly soon and Rolls doesn’t see an improving income stream, I wouldn’t be surprised. Rolls-Royce share price progress? So when will we see the cash flows needed for sustained Rolls-Royce share price progress? Some observers suggest that aviation could get back to 2019 levels by 2024-2025. But those are among the more optimistic guesses. There’s increasing pressure from climate change too, with carbon emissions targets being brought forward. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if 2019 turned out to be a peak year for leisure flights, not to be equalled for a long time. So, on the one hand, I’m seeing a company that looks undervalued on the face of it, and that I’ve liked for years. And I think the Rolls-Royce share price could indeed have a strong future. But there are just too many uncertainties between now and next year for me. So no, I’m not going to buy in 2021. Maybe 2022.

  36. Why is Rolls-Royce a penny stock? (13/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    With Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) trading below a pound, the famous engine maker is now a penny stock. But the Rolls-Royce share price traded higher just a couple of months ago – and I think it could go up again. Turbulence for the Rolls-Royce share price Concerns about demand for air travel meant that companies heavily exposed to it, such as Rolls-Royce, were hard hit after the pandemic started. The shares were climbing earlier this year, but have shed a quarter of their value since their mid-March highs. They are now up just 4% over the past year. There are a number of reasons for that. One reason is the inconsistent pace at which air travel demand is coming back. With each setback, such as delays in lifting restrictions, investors fret about the prospects for Rolls-Royce. That has hit the Rolls-Royce share price. A second reason is the company’s liquidity. It massively boosted liquidity last year. But it did so at the expense of existing shareholders, through a heavily dilutive rights issue. While I think the company currently has ample liquidity, the proven risk of dilution could be dampening enthusiasm for the shares. Quality on the cheap Often, penny stock status suggests concerns about a company’s future business prospects. Undoubtedly a decline in demand for aircraft engine servicing has hit Rolls-Royce hard. Last year it booked a £3.1bn loss. With demand for air travel still significantly below pre-pandemic levels, there is a risk that weakened revenues in the company’s core engines business will weigh on profits again this year – and perhaps beyond. But there are signs of longer-term resilience in the air travel market, including large aircraft order from major airlines. Only a few global aircraft engine makers of scale exist, and Rolls-Royce is one of them. That alone ought to help it return to financial health in future. Add to that the fact that the company isn’t just reliant on civil aviation – and its other business divisions have held up fairly well during the pandemic. So while the Rolls-Royce share price may languish beneath the pound mark for a while yet, I don’t expect it to stay there forever. Where next for the Rolls-Royce share price While I see potential for a higher Rolls-Royce share price, a key question is: what will be the driver to move it? One possible factor could be the release of the company’s interim results, due next month. Rolls-Royce has repeatedly said it expects to become free cash flow positive in the second half of this year. An update on that target at the time of the interim results could lead to a rerating of the shares, either positively or negatively. The effects of the company’s cost savings programme ought also to show up more clearly now than it did before. If it looks like it has cut out costs without damaging Rolls-Royce’s reputation with customers, that could also provide a boost to the Rolls-Royce share price. For now, however, I continue to watch from the sidelines. I do not plan to buy Rolls-Royce shares in the absence of clear evidence of strong, sustained business recovery.

  37. What’s going on with the Rolls-Royce share price? (12/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) is in a funk. Again. The Rolls-Royce share price is trading at below 100p levels today after managing to hold up above these levels for much of the past month.  Much progress for Rolls-Royce This is mystifying. The outlook for aviation is better now than it has been at any time in the past year. Supply and service of civil aircraft engines is Rolls-Royce’s biggest revenue source, so that is good news. Also, its other business segments are in a healthy place.  And Rolls-Royce also has plans in place for the future. It is in the process of forming a partnership with Cavendish Nuclear, an engineering company, to facilitate the development of Rolls-Royce’s small nuclear power plants. In another bid to support clean energy, the company is also set to launch the fastest electric plane.   To me, these look like developments with great potential as we move towards a cleaner, greener future. Whether or not they add to the company’s bottom line remains to be seen, but for now that is tomorrow’s question. Why the share price drop? So why the drop in share price? I think one glaring reason is that the pandemic continues. It is true that vaccinations are happening speedily. It is also true that the intensity of Covid-19 has declined. However, it is equally true that coronavirus cases are on the rise. And while we are all looking forward to ‘Freedom Day’ next week, there is also a possibility that restrictions may come back after the summer. The worst affected from this ongoing uncertainty, is of course the aviation sector.  It is no coincidence then, that Rolls-Royce is hardly the only aviation related stock to decline in the recent months. FTSE 100 airline giant International Consolidated Airlines Group and the FTSE 250 low-cost airline easyJet, are other casualties of this uncertainty.  With constant change in expectations, I can see why investors appear undecided about the Rolls-Royce share price. I had predicted as much, when I wrote about it in May. My takeaway was that its situation is volatile, and that is how it has stayed. Even though by last month, it was beginning to look like I might have been wrong. What would I do now? So what would I do about the Rolls-Royce stock now? I think it is a wait and watch situation for now. Unlike airline stocks, I have been particularly cautious about Rolls-Royce because even pre-pandemic its financial performance left a lot to be desired. So even if all goes back to normal, there is limited confidence in the company’s performance. This will also translate into limited share price increases.  Instead, if I want to buy stocks in the aviation pack, I think the likes of easyJet are a better buy for me. As a low-cost airline its bounce back can be faster.  The post What’s going on with the Rolls-Royce share price? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  38. Rolls-Royce shares: should I buy? (22/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) shares have had a lot of attention lately, but the stock has been falling. So if it has taken a hit, is now a buying opportunity? I think so and I’d buy Rolls-Royce shares in my portfolio.  Civil Aerospace I can’t deny that Roll-Royce’s main business, the Civil Aerospace division has been severely hit by the coronavirus pandemic. I think what makes it worse is that revenue from this business accounts for over 50% of the company’s total earnings. But what does the Civil Aerospace division do? In a nutshell, it manufactures and services engines for the airline industry. So it’s no surprise that it has been hit by the pandemic. Global restrictions have meant little travel travel, thereby having a knock-on effect on the need for Rolls-Royce’s services. Now that there’s a mass vaccination programme under way, I expect air travel to start recovering slowly. I reckon there’s pent-up demand for people to holiday abroad. This in turn should start having a positive impact on Rolls-Royce shares. In its December trading update, Rolls-Royce reported that the Civil Aerospace business is gradually recovering. The number of large engine flying hours at the time was 42% of 2019’s level. While no one can predict the shape and timing of the recovery in air traffic, Rolls-Royce expects travel to pick up in the second half of 2021. By this time, I’d expect vaccines to have been rolled out a significant portion of the UK and global population Liquidity During the coronavirus crisis, Rolls-Royce improved its liquidity position. It raised money from a rights issue, and secured additional loans, as well as drawing on its existing cash reserves. Rolls-Royce took further measures by implementing cost-cutting measures and disposing of certain assets. To me, these steps have not only made the firm leaner but have also strengthened the balance sheet. According to its latest update, Rolls-Royce has access to £9bn in liquidity. It forecasts £2bn in cash outflow for 2021. For now, I reckon it can weather the storm and I’d buy the shares. Risks I think the biggest risk right now facing Rolls-Royce share is that no one knows how long this pandemic and restrictions will persist for. If this crisis drags on, this may place a strain on the business and liquidity reserves. Furthermore, if air travel doesn’t pick up in the second half of 2021 then Rolls-Royce may have to raise further capital. Another round of financing may not be well received by investors and could impact the share price. Defence business Clearly, I don’t think all is lost with Roll-Royce shares. I believe investors have become fixated on the company’s Civil Aerospace business and have forgotten that it has other divisions as well. In fact, I’d like to highlight its Defence business, which accounts for 20% of earnings. What I like about Rolls-Royce shares is that the defence business throughout the pandemic has been resilient. The company has defence contracts with the UK and US governments. It also has a strong order book and 2021 forecast sales are well covered. For now, I’m happy with the stable revenue visibility from this division.  “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

  39. Will the Rolls-Royce share price bounceback in 2021? (06/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    With a 12% fall in the Rolls Royce (LSE: RR) share price in the past three weeks, this question comes up yet again. The Rolls-Royce share price has seen plenty of ups and downs in the past year (though it’s up almost 9.5% over 12 months) given the company’s heightened sensitivity related to all sorts of developments from vaccines to its own finances.  Why did the share price fall? The Rolls-Royce share price fall coincided with the Norwegian government stopping the sale of its marine engines manufacturer, Bergen Engines, to a Russian company. Bergen Engines is a Norway-based business. The Norwegian government sees the sale as a security threat, because it has no security co-operation with Russia.  What does the blocked Bergen Engines’ sale mean for the company? Hiving off Bergen Engines can be seen in the context of the company’s big restructuring, which started almost a year ago. As Rolls-Royce puts it in its release regarding this subsidiary “Bergen Engines….is not core to our long-term strategy”.   Besides slowing-down its overhaul, the blocked sale also means a delay in raising finances. With its business at a near standstill in 2020, Rolls-Royce has planned to raise £2bn through disposals to keep itself well funded. This adds to the company’s other efforts at fundraising, which have included significant new equity and debt, in the past year.  What’s next for the Rolls-Royce share price? Delays in financing itself, especially in these uncertain times, is negative news for the company. There is no way of knowing how long it will take for Rolls-Royce to find another buyer.  Yet, it is one of the many developments that can impact Rolls-Royce right now. Recently, the company started building the world’s biggest aero-engine, which will provide greater fuel-efficiency. Also, it runs on sustainable fuel, which is made of waste products.  Clean energy is a growing focus area for both policy makers and consumers, so this sounds like a step in the right direction. But I think the biggest impact on the Rolls-Royce share price will be from its future financial developments. Some improvements should be visible later this year, as air travel comes back to some extent. I think these can have a positive impact on the company’s stock market performance. Would I buy the shares? While I think that the Rolls-Royce share price can rise over the next few months, albeit unevenly, I am hesitant to make a long-term call on it yet. The reason is that there is still too much up in the air right now.  Rolls-Royce was loss-making even before the pandemic struck, and now it is in an even worse place. I am cautiously positive on the stock given that it has a reputable position in a specialised industry, which cannot be replicated easily. At the same time, its financials are in an undeniable funk too.  I am watching it for a turnaround before buying the share for the long haul.  There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!

  40. The Rolls-Royce share price is rising. Should I buy now? (03/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) shares are popular right now. Last week, Rolls-Royce was the fifth most purchased stock on Hargreaves Lansdown. Meanwhile, on Trading 212, RR is currently the 7th most owned stock overall. This interest in the stock appears to be pushing its share price up. Is this a share I should buy for my own portfolio? Let’s take a look at the investment case. Rolls-Royce shares: the bull case I can see why Rolls-Royce shares are popular at the moment. For starters, the share price has been hit hard due to Covid-19 disruption. Over the last year, RR is down about 50%. As a result, the company has a market cap of just £2.2bn right now. If the prospects for the airline industry improve (which I think they will eventually), Rolls-Royce shares could rise. That’s because the company generates a substantial proportion of its revenues from the manufacturing and servicing of engines for the commercial aviation industry. Secondly, there’s been a lot of talk this year about all-electric planes and ‘air taxis’ and some investors believe that Rolls-Royce could be a big player in these areas. Recently, Rolls-Royce has been developing a high-performance electric aeroplane named Spirit of Innovation. This has completed its first runway taxiing tests, ahead of a first flight, which is expected to take place this spring. “This system and the capabilities being developed will help position Rolls-Royce as a technology leader offering power systems to the urban air mobility market,” said Rob Watson, director of Rolls-Royce Electrical, after the tests. This development certainly looks interesting. Going forward, air mobility could be a genuine source of growth for Rolls-Royce. Is RR a good fit for my portfolio? Having said all that, I’m not convinced that Rolls-Royce shares are a great fit for my portfolio at the moment. I like to invest in companies that are consistently profitable, cash generative, financially sound, and that generate a high return on capital employed. In other words, I like high-quality businesses. Companies like Apple, Microsoft, and dotDigital are some good examples. Companies that have these kinds of attributes tend to be good investments over time. Looking at Roll-Royce’s financial track record, it’s not so impressive. In recent years, the company has posted big losses on a number of occasions (well before Covid-19). And even when it was profitable, return on capital employed was not that high. Meanwhile, Stockopedia gives Rolls-Royce an Altman Z1 score of -0.19 which indicates a “serious risk of financial distress” within the next two years. Overall, Rolls-Royce does not appear to me to be a high-quality business. Better stocks to buy In conclusion, I do think Rolls-Royce shares have the potential to keep rising in the short term. If the airline industry picks up, the company should benefit. However, Rolls-Royce is not the kind of stock I’d buy for my portfolio. I think there are much better stocks I could buy right now that are more suited to my goals (generating strong returns over the long term) and risk tolerance. Like this one….

  41. Rolls-Royce share price is around 100p. Here’s what I’d do (22/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) share price has likely reflected the recent battle between Covid-19 vaccines and variants. Initially, the Pfizer vaccine candidate news really beat efficacy estimates in November and the Rolls-Royce share price rallied. Later, Covid-19 variants spread and made the prospect of a fast recovery in civil aviation more distant. The Rolls-Royce share price fell as a result. With the Rolls-Royce share price now close to the 100p level and everything that’s happened, here’s what I’d do. Vaccines versus variants In the battle between the vaccine and the variants, it’s not the end of the world for Rolls-Royce. While the spread of Covid-19 variants has slowed the recovery in civil aviation, the company still expects to turn cash flow positive at some point in the second half of 2021, according to a trading update released earlier in the year. Management is also confident that they are well positioned for the future given the company’s liquidity of around £9bn. At its current stage, I reckon the Covid-19 vaccines are getting a slight upper hand on the variants. Production of Covid-19 vaccines has ramped up higher and the number of new cases has fallen in many parts of the world. If the number of new cases continue to decline sharply, there is the possibility that civil aviation recovery expectations could increase and this could potentially benefit the Rolls-Royce share price. There could also be hope in the future against variants. Companies like GlaxoSmithKline and CureVac are, for instance, working on multivalent mRNA Covid-19 vaccine candidates that could target variants more effectively. The two companies, which are working together, hope to bring a multivalent product onto the market next year. If the late stage results of those multivalent vaccine candidates are positive, I reckon that civil aviation recovery expectations could increase. With this said, Covid-19 is constantly mutating and there is potential for a new strain to hinder civil aviation more than expected. As a result, the Rolls-Royce share price could always decline. Rolls-Royce share price: what I’d do Given the current information on Covid-19 variants and the current Rolls-Royce share price, I’d buy shares. Making quality and dependable jet engines is one of the hardest things in the world to do. It takes a lot of engineering know-how that I think gives Rolls-Royce a potential competitive advantage in future growth sectors. I think civil aviation will eventually recover and RR could be a good investment as a result. I could be wrong, however, if a new Covid-19 variant spreads and becomes a big problem. I’d also follow the annual result report next month, particularly when it comes to future guidance (if management provides any). If Rolls-Royce beats the market’s real estimates on earnings or guidance, I could see how the stock could go higher. I could also see the stock going lower if the results are underwhelming. I’d also be interested in how the company’s planned sale process of ITP Aero is going. I reckon a higher than expected sale price could help the stock. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” 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.

  42. Tesla has fallen 35%. How I think it affects the Rolls-Royce share price (09/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    With it having such a large market cap, Tesla’s fortunes affect many other stocks. Given how influential Tesla is, it’s not out of the question that it indirectly affects Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) too. With Tesla shares declining from around $880 in late January to $563 on 8 March, here’s how I think it affects the Rolls-Royce share price. Tesla & Rolls-Royce  In the past, I think demand for many electric-related stocks increased due to Tesla’s success. Although many electric stocks don’t really have anything in common with Tesla, some in the market probably thought they did (or anticipated the correlation) and bought shares of the companies. The buying somehow caused more buying and many electric stocks rallied when Tesla rallied. Given that air taxi stocks are electric, I reckon they benefited from Tesla’s success as well. This is despite Tesla not being an air taxi stock itself.  I think Rolls-Royce could benefit if air taxi stocks are in high demand (despite Rolls-Royce also not being an air taxi stock itself — yet). If demand for air taxi stocks is strong, air taxi startups could find it easier to raise money. With more money, they could spend more on R&D and potentially bring a product to the mass market faster. If air taxis become market ready faster, demand for air taxi propulsion systems could increase faster. Assuming Rolls-Royce is the leader in air taxi propulsion systems like it wants to be in the future, RR could stand to benefit with more potential growth too.  By that reasoning, Tesla shares falling could indirectly lower demand for air taxi stocks and indirectly negatively affect Rolls-Royce. Is it the case in practice? While the ‘Tesla affects Rolls-Royce’ fundamental reasoning sounds compelling, the Rolls-Royce share price hasn’t really reflected it. While Tesla shares have surged in 2020, for example, RR actually decreased substantially. As a result, I don’t think Tesla falling 35% from its highs actually affects the Rolls-Royce share price all that much. The market, in my view, seems to be more focused on Rolls-Royce’s civil aerospace business rather than its future potential air taxi propulsion business. Civil aviation gets more media attention, and Rolls-Royce’s near-term fundamentals depend a lot more on civil aviation than air taxi propulsion. The Rolls-Royce share price: what I’d do Rolls-Royce has uncertainty. The Rolls-Royce share price might not do well if air travel doesn’t recover like the market expects. Given that it’s a new market, it’s also not clear if Rolls-Royce will succeed in the air taxi propulsion system market like the company has in the traditional jet engine market. The British company will likely have a lot of competition in that category. Nevertheless, I think the market isn’t really reflecting the potential value in Rolls-Royce’s air taxi propulsion business because it’s still in its very early stages. It also hasn’t gotten much press as management hasn’t really advertised it. As the technology progresses, however, I reckon the market perception of the British company’s air taxi propulsion business could increase. Given the business’ potential and the potential for air travel to eventually recover with the vaccine rollouts, I’d buy and hold shares at the current Rolls-Royce share price.

  43. What’s going on with the Rolls-Royce share price? (19/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Over the past 12 months, the Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price has essentially moved sideways. The stock has returned -1.5% since this time last year. By comparison, the FTSE All-Share Index has returned 22%. This is a bit of an unfair comparison because the pandemic has severely impacted Rolls-Royce. It suffered one of the most substantial drops in revenue and profitability of any large UK company.  It makes more sense to compare the performance of the Rolls-Royce share price to that of other pandemic-hit businesses such as IAG, easyJet and Tui. But even compared to these stocks, Rolls has underperformed. The three firms outlined above have returned 11%, 24%, and 47%, respectively, over the past 12 months. Tui has achieved this performance even though it’s been bailed out three times by the German government during this period.   Looking at these figures, I’ve been wondering, what’s going on with the Rolls-Royce share price?  Improving outlook  Rolls’ largest division is its aerospace business. This involves the sale and maintenance of engines for the civil aviation industry. The company gets paid based on the number of flying hours its machines rack up. Therefore, when the aviation industry was effectively grounded this time last year, group revenues plunged.  Since then, the industry has started to recover. Air traffic around the world is currently around two-thirds of 2019 levels. As the outlook for the sector has improved, it’s had a positive impact on Rolls’ outlook. The company expects to be cash flow break-even in the second half of the year. This should draw a line under its pandemic losses.  Unfortunately, it seems as if the market is sceptical the company can hit this target. That appears to be the primary reason why the Rolls-Royce share price has underperformed.  It wouldn’t be the first time the company has missed targets. In the past, the group has repeatedly overpromised and underperformed. Therefore, I think the market doesn’t believe in management’s outlook.  Is the Rolls-Royce share price a buy?  I reckon this could be an opportunity for risk-tolerant investors. Despite its improving outlook, the stock still looks cheap. Although there’s always going to be the risk that the company will miss management’s growth targets.  With that being the case, I’d buy the stock for my portfolio today as a speculative recovery play. However, I’m well aware this isn’t a risk-free investment. I think there’s a very high chance the company will underperform this year. If it does, the stock could continue to languish.  That’s why I’d only buy a small speculative position for my portfolio. While I think the Rolls-Royce share price has recovery potential, the global travel and aviation industry outlook is incredibly uncertain. Unfortunately, there’s nothing the company can do about this uncertainty.  The post What’s going on with the Rolls-Royce share price? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  44. Rolls-Royce shares: here’s how much a £1,000 investment a year ago would be worth today (04/03/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    A one-year time frame is a good benchmark when I look at an investment return. It doesn’t mean I’ll sell after one year, but enough time has passed for me to see the general trend of the stock. Judging a company over a shorter time might lead me to make the wrong call on the stock. One example is Rolls-Royce (LSE:RR) shares. One-year performance  A year ago, Rolls-Royce shares were trading at 208p. As I’m writing, the share price is 115p. From this I can clearly see that a £1,000 investment is worth less now than it previously was. In numerical terms, it’s down 45%, so my £1,000 would be worth approximately £550. As a rough barometer, the FTSE 100 index over this period is down as well. However, it’s down less than 3%, so Rolls-Royce shares are underperforming the benchmark. This move lower doesn’t appear to be a one-off. If I look back two years, the share price was at 305p. There have clearly been fundamental drivers that have caused the value of the company to decrease over the past few years.  One of these has been the “tangible and sustainable cultural and performance shift” that was reported in the 2019 results. Rolls-Royce had focused on repositioning the business in several key areas. This meant cutting headcount (seen in both 2019 and 2020) as well as trying to reduce net debt (gross debt reduced by £1.1bn in 2019). This understandably meant Rolls-Royce shares took a knock, as trying to transform a mature company will hurt in the short run before investors see the benefits. Another hit to Rolls-Royce shares came due to Covid-19 last year. The impact was felt in most industries, but particularly in the aerospace sector. Demand for maintenance of engines and new engine sales in the civil aerospace area dried up. Although demand in other areas (such as defence) held firm, Covid-19 definitely took its toll. Should I buy Rolls-Royce shares now? I could look at Rolls-Royce shares and think that the downward trend might continue. However, there comes a point when the share price simply can’t fall lower unless the business is looking like it will go bust.  In its latest trading update, Rolls-Royce confirmed it has £9bn of liquidity available. So I don’t think the business is remotely close to going under in the short term. Therefore, I do see Rolls-Royce shares as an opportunity for me to buy in. But before I do, I’d like to see the full-year 2020 results that are due out on March 11. Besides any major disaster, I’ll buy after results come out. I imagine the commentary with the results will stress caution, but could look ahead with optimism. Based on the vaccination numbers, flying hours should increase in H2, which indirectly will benefit Rolls-Royce. Ultimately, I don’t see air traffic (either civil or otherwise) remaining depressed in the long term. So this should gradually mean a return to sustainable profits for the business. The issue here though is simply the risk of the unknown. If more virus mutations surface or lockdowns are prolonged, Rolls-Royce shares will likely continue to trade lower. However, I can’t predict this, and have to accept this as a risk. But with this in mind, I’d still buy the stock.

  47. Will the Rolls-Royce share price rise in August? (02/08/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Shares in Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) have lately been showing the sort of movement more associated with the company’s engines. Moving down to become a penny share and now gaining altitude again, the shares have certainly encountered some heavy weather. But the Rolls-Royce share price is 30% higher than it was a year ago. Can it now go higher? Demand recovery is in progress One of the drivers for the Rolls-Royce share price is the utilisation rate of its installed engine base. They higher the flying hours, the greater the need for servicing. That is good for Rolls-Royce’s service revenues. There have already been signs of growing civil aviation demand recovery in markets like the US. Recently there has been similar news closer to home. Last week, for example, Ryanair said that it is seeing “a strong rebound of pent up travel demand into August and September” which it expects will continue in the following months. Rival Easyjet referred to “bookings surges experienced following selective easing of travel restrictions”. That sort of improvement in the number of passengers taking flights should be good for the Rolls-Royce share price, as long as it is sustained. The company also derives revenues from a number of businesses apart from civil aviation, such as defence. Performance in those business units has not weakened as much as that of the civil aviation division during the pandemic. If civil aviation demand continues to improve, I think Rolls-Royce could soon be reporting stronger performance throughout its business. That could help boost the Rolls-Royce share price. Cash flow news this week The company is set to release its interim results this Thursday. I think that could be an important event for the Rolls-Royce share price. Part of the nervousness investors have had about Rolls-Royce is its liquidity. Will it need to repeat the very dilutive rights issue it had last year? The company has repeatedly said that it expects to become cash flow positive in the second half of this year. If it does that, investors’ liquidity concerns will ease. That could help boost the share price. If Thursday’s results are good, that could lift the Rolls-Royce share price. But the thing I will most be keeping my eye on is the cash flow news. I expect the company to update on its target in the interim results. If it says it still expects to become cash flow positive in the second half – which is now underway – I see it as positive for the Rolls-Royce investment case. Rolls-Royce share price outlook for August So, what does that mean for the Rolls-Royce share price in August and beyond? If the interim results are strong, I think it could provide a boost for the shares. I therefore think that the Rolls-Royce share price could rise in August. But I also see risks. Demand recovery may be slower than expected, hurting the restoration of positive cash flow. Further lockdowns could mean future demand falling again. The dilutive rights issue last year points up the risk of any future liquidity crunch leading to further dilution. I’ll be digesting Thursday’s results eagerly, but for now am not tempted by the Rolls-Royce share price.

  48. The Rolls-Royce share price is under £1: should I buy today? (17/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    After hitting a high of 135p in early December, shares in aero engine maker Rolls-Royce Holdings (LSE: RR) have slumped due to the impact of renewed lockdown restrictions. Rolls-Royce’s share price has fallen by more than 25% since 3 December, to under 100p. On a 12-month view, Rolls shares have now fallen by nearly 60%. Ouch. Are Rolls-Royce shares a potential bargain? My colleague Graham Chester thinks they might be. I agree. But if I bought the shares today, I’d expect a rough ride before the company returns to reliable profitability. Here’s why. What’s the worst that could happen? I think it’s fair to say that many people underestimated the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. I think most businesses were unprepared too. They had not planned for a scenario where their revenue streams would be shut off by a health emergency and subsequent government action. I’m not here to discuss the politics of this situation. But the reality is that in 2021, Rolls-Royce expects to record engine flying hours that are 45% lower than in 2019. No business can be expected to shrug off such a big loss. Rolls expects to see a cash outflow of £2bn this year, despite cost-saving measures. Can things get worse? Rolls-Royce is banking on a recovery in flying hours during the second half of the year. But I don’t think we can be sure of this just yet. One risk I can see is that countries will return to normal this summer but might keep their borders closed for longer to protect against new virus variants. Why I think the stock could be cheap One challenge for Rolls-Royce is that it doesn’t make much money from selling its jet engines. Profits mostly come from after-sales servicing and support. In normal times, this business generates plenty of cash. This is the key to my belief that Rolls-Royce shares could be cheap at their current price. If I buy the stock, I’ll mentally write off 2021. Anything could happen and I expect the firm’s results to be awful. But from 2022 onwards, I believe the business should be operating pretty much as normal. At that point, I think the changes being made by CEO Warren East should start to deliver results. Rolls-Royce’s own forecasts suggest that it could generate surplus cash each year (known as free cash flow) of £750m “as early as 2022”. I reckon that hitting this target would make the business look cheap at current levels, with a price-to-free cash flow ratio of just 2.5. Rolls-Royce share price: my view I think Rolls-Royce’s valuation reflects a couple of risks for potential shareholders like me. The first is simply that the outlook is still very uncertain. A return to normal is not yet in sight. The second risk is probably more serious, in my view. Rolls-Royce has taken on around £4bn of new debt over the last year to help it survive the pandemic. At some point this borrowed cash will need to be repaid. However, even when I include the impact of Rolls’ increased borrowings, my sums tell me that at a share price of £1, Rolls-Royce could be a good addition to my long-term holdings. I’ve not decided whether to buy Rolls-Royce just yet. But this business is now on my watch list of shares to consider buying. One stock for a post-Covid world… Covid-19 is ripping the investment world in two… Some companies have seen exploding cash-flows, soaring valuations and record results… …Others are scrimping and suffering. Entire industries look to be going extinct. Such world-changing events may only happen once in a lifetime. And it seems there’s no middle ground.

  49. Can the Rolls-Royce share price maintain its momentum? (26/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The last time I wrote about Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR), its share price was just at about 100p. And to me, it looked like it was ready to dip more in the short term. I was wrong. It has been consistently above the mark since.  But can it continue to stay there? I think there are reasons that both favour the trend and that can send its share price tumbling below 100p again. Supportive environment for the Rolls-Royce share price #1. Stock markets are buoyant: The fact that the stock markets in general are rising is a good sign. The FTSE 100 index has been making steady gains over time, even though on a day-to-day basis it really looks like it is going nowhere.  This shows up in individual shares’ prices too, and Rolls-Royce is one of them. In much of the past year, its price has either remained around the 100p mark or just a bit below it. It is only during the months right before the stock market rally of November that it slid sharply.  #2. Aviation is in for better times: The outlook for the sector is also improving. Aviation has been one of the worst impacted industries during the pandemic. Rolls-Royce derives a large part of its revenue from supply of aircraft engines. So, it was impacted too.  In fact, it still is. Even while much of the economy has reopened, air travel still remains limited. But as vaccinations proceed at speed, it is only a matter of time before travel becomes commonplace once again. Its share price has doubled since November, in anticipation. Pandemic and prices could play spoilsport #1. Persistent uncertainty: However, when considering buying the stock, I also need to bear in mind that we never know what new twist in the corona tale awaits. New variants have slowed down the bounce back. And Rolls-Royce itself is cautious in providing an outlook going by the uncertainty that exists.  #2. Oil price rise: Moreover, air travel may remain weak even after it is allowed. Potential travellers could choose to be cautious for some time. Oil prices are rising. And crude oil may even touch $100 a barrel this year. This would push up travel prices. Coming out of a year of economic uncertainty, furloughs, and government support, it could be a put off.  Can the Rolls-Royce share price stay above 100p? Since Rolls-Royce is sensitive to news flow at this time, its share price can react a lot. It may even plunge significantly if there are any untoward developments. Still, I am optimistic that it may not happen. In the past year, its share price has risen by only 8%. This means that it was not significantly lower than 100p even then. As I was saying earlier, it did slide down for a few months, but was soon back up. I think the real question now is whether it can continue rising over time. I maintain that it can. But I am waiting for a real turnaround before considering buying the stock for my portfolio.  The post Can the Rolls-Royce share price maintain its momentum? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.
