  3. can a company hedge itself in any way against a falling stock price of itself? (12/04/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    i‘m thinking about a company and lets say it plans to expand its business, therefore issue new shares and take up new debt. the company knows this will lower its share price. so to kind of finance itself they shortsell or buy options and bet against themselves (say they do this via some subsidiary and banks are stupid enough to sell to them). i‘m sure this is not legal, but companies can also buy back shares if they know they will do well and think the share price will increase. so for me they are kind of trading on inside information. do some of you this might sound stupid but let me know what you think about this :)   submitted by   /u/No-Buy-8927 [link]   [comments]

  4. Spectrum Brands - SPB (14/07/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Spectrum Brands seems like an overlooked gem. There's almost no discussion on Reddit for them and the Yahoo Finance message board for them is dead. They're a consumer products home essentials company with multiple brands to their name that cover several different areas of life (lock sets, pet care, insecticides, grooming and shaving, etc). I'm certain they have at least one brand that you've heard of. They currently have a PE of just under 12 and a forward PE of just over 12. EPS this year, next year, and next 5 years are all very positive. P/FCF is 12.5, and instititional ownersip over 99%. 1 yr price targets are around $100-$110 with a share price right now of $79. They also pay a healthy 2% dividend. I see them as a dividend play, a growth stock, and a value stock. Yet no one seems to notice them. The price has been falling lately, I assume due to inflation concerns and CPI news, but I think that'll only help them. They produce products that everyone needs. Even if cost of living increases, people will still buy their products. So, any thoughts on SPB? Is the falling stock price a concern? Or a great buying opportunity? If you've never heard of them, now that you have what do you think?   submitted by   /u/jmur5074 [link]   [comments]

  6. ZKIN 15m Outlook (30/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    The price of ZKIN has lost few percents of it's value since the last outlook, as it's currently being traded slightly below $10 per share. Yesterday's bullish divergence failed to find support at $10, and as a result of RSI falling below 40, a bearish momentum arrived. This bearish momentum was quickly capped as this dip atrracted buyers and the selloff was capped at $9.35 per share. Unfortunately the gains weren't able to test resistance at $11 as they got capped at next pivot at $10.58, from where the bullish momentum has stalled. As of right now, the price of ZKIN keeps falling, possibly looking for another sharper dip to the downside, that is most likely getting bought and a retest of $10.58 would follow. Yet, the local low at $9.58 could have been the bottom, but there is no technical aspect to back it. RSI is the one what concerns us about the price seeing extended losses as it's below 40, meaning bearish momentum is still present. A break back above $10 will get rid of the bearish momentum. MACD is currently in a second selling wave while the selling pressure keeps increasing, as it haven't found peak yet. The overall short term trend has turned into a downtrend as the EMA's are signaling. As of writing this Outlook, the price of ZKIN has confirmed the bottom at $9.58 with a break above $10. This has also vanished the bearish momentum as RSI is back above 40. As of right now, a move to pivot high at $10.60 is expected.   submitted by   /u/BreianaOlson [link]   [comments]

  8. Stock market bargains: I’d buy falling UK dividend shares in July (02/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The FTSE 100 has posted a positive return so far this year, and trades around 7,130 points. However, this is below the level it was at in late 2019 before Covid struck. It’s also a fair way off the record highs in 2019 of 7,877 points. With this is mind, I think there are still some UK stock market bargains to be had. As we head into July, I’m looking to buy some dividend shares that tick this box. What makes a stock market bargain? A stock market bargain can mean different things to different people. I’d classify something as a bargain if the share price is trading at a material discount to what I think the fair value is. The beauty of investing is that my fair value is different to another investor. That’s why the market functions, as in most cases there will always be a buyer for every seller of a stock. I’m particularly looking for bargains in relation to dividend shares. These are companies that pay out regular dividends to investors. One of my investing aims is to generate passive income from my investments. This is why dividend shares play a part in where I look to invest. I’d want to buy such shares when their prices are falling. This could allow me to buy the stocks at a discount to their fair value. If so, I’d be happy that I’d bought a stock market bargain. A falling share price also helps boost the attractiveness of dividend shares as it increases the dividend yield. The yield measures the dividend per share in relation to the share price. If the share price is lower, then the dividend per share is a larger proportion. It therefore increases that yield. The higher it is, the more passive income I get paid for the same amount of money invested.  Falling dividend shares for July By looking at share price movements over the past month, along with the dividend yield changes, I can find shares of interest. For example, the Polymetal International share price is down over 8% in a month. As a result, this has increased the dividend yield to 6%, making it one of the highest yielding dividend shares in the FTSE 100. Another example is financial services company M&G. Due to the share price falling 7.88% in June, the dividend yield has risen to just under 8%! I personally have a positive outlook for the business, and so see this as a good opportunity to pick up a stock market bargain. As long as the dividend per share doesn’t change, I can lock in the yield through buying the share now. If the share price recovers to a fairer value, then I could gain from capital appreciation as well as the dividend element. Of course, I have to bear in mind that a falling share price might be a sign of something wrong at the business. Overall, stock market bargains are subjective. Yet when I look for good value dividend shares, there are some great options for July, in my opinion.

  9. Why has the Argo Blockchain share price been falling? (15/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Argo Blockchain (ARB) share price has been falling lately, shedding 50% from its February high at one point this week. But it is still up over 2,900% in the past 12 months. Why has the Argo Blockchain share price been falling? Here I consider two explanations – and what they could mean for the shares. The Musk effect Argo isn’t the only cryptocurrency company to have suffered in the markets this week. After Tesla chief executive Elon Musk made widely publicised comments about the environmental impact of crypto mining, the markets took fright. The car company said it would stop taking payment in Bitcoin, which dented confidence in the cryptocurrency. That matters for Argo, as it held 936 Bitcoin or their equivalent as of last month. I see Musk as a loose cannon whose conflicting messages on cryptocurrency impact markets. That could weigh on the Argo Blockchain share price in future. Yesterday, Argo announced that it has signed the Crypto Climate Accord. That may reassure some investors. But I don’t think it is enough on its own to counteract the impact of Musk’s comments. Valuation concerns The wild ride of the Argo Blockchain share price over the past year also reflects questions about how best to value the company. On one view, it is essentially a property landlord, as it operates a series of data centres in which clients can rent space. Indeed, on Thursday it confirmed the completion of its purchase of a couple of data centres in Canada. A property landlord is often valued by looking first at it net assets and using that as a basis to judge its future likely income streams. But an alternative way of looking at this company in particular is to emphasise the possible value in its current and future cryptocurrency holding. Like a farm owner who has tenant farmers but continues to work some of his land himself, Argo is actively mining for cryptocurrency. That is why it currently has a market cap of £580m while cash and digital assets at the end of its last financial year were only £6.7m. Its cryptocurrency assets increased in value in the first quarter, to £32.6m at the end of March, but that is still a significant valuation gap. Bulls could argue that the valuation reflects the company’s fast growth rate and growing pile of Bitcoins. Bears might point to a risk of the share price falling if cryptocurrency prices drop, but also if the market decides to value Argo Blockchain based more on its reported assets. I previously explained my valuation concerns about the Argo Blockchain share price. Even after the recent falls, investors like me maintain value concerns. There is a risk the share price could keep falling. Where next for the Argo Blockchain share price The Argo Blockchain share price looks to me like it could keep on falling. The Musk effect isn’t the only reason it fell lately. I think underlying concerns about the valuation could also be in play. Given the risks, I don’t see the pullback as a buying opportunity for my portfolio.

  10. Just trying to learn how calls work.. (10/03/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Just been reading into it recently, wanting to understand them before I do anything stupid. Basically what I understand, by way of example (Again, I'm citing what I understand, and am asking for help where I'm wrong: James buys a call for 100 XYZ stock @ $10 each for $1k, and he sets the strike price to $20/share by next month. Three potential situations can follow: The stock price goes up to $20 each in just 3 days; James exercises the call out of fear it won't get any higher and drop to below $10, and receives 100 XYZ stock, now worth double his investment, for half the price. James wins. The stock price goes up to $25/share. James exercises, and gets $15/share extra value, receiving 100 XYZ worth 2500 for a $10/share price. The stock price reaches only $18/share (or dips to $5/share) before the expiration date, and since in either case the strike price is not reached, the option expires worthless. James has lost $1k, and receives no stock. Or does it go like this? XYZ is worth $10. James makes a call, buying the right to 100 XYZ at the assumption they will reach $20 by expiration. He pays $2k for this call. This has two possible outcomes: The price goes up to $25+/share, into the money. James exercises, and receives 100 shares for the $20 price tag, but receives an extra $5+/share value. The price does not meet the $20/share strike price. James loses the $2k and receives no stock. If one or neither of these is correct, I'd really appreciate guidance. Thank you!!   submitted by   /u/ninthtale [link]   [comments]

  15. ZKIN 15m Outlook (20/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Since the last outlook the price of ZKIN has dropped by 2% as it's being traded for $4.34 per share. On the hourly outlook we have spotted a falling wedge pattern which had bias to break to the upside. This pattern has broke to the upside yes, but the gains were pretty mediocre as they were capped at $4.60 per share. The minor pivot resistance has been tested 4 times in a row with a series of unsuccessful tests which eventually led to a breakdown to good known support at $4.30. The price action seems to be creating a rounded top pattern, which has bias to break to the downside, below $4.30. Currently we are seeing that the price is testing the support at $4.30 and has created a new lower low, following the pivot low at $4.34 by a low at $4.30. What are indicators suggesting, will the price recover or fall below $4.30? A break below $4.30 will surely not be ideal as there is little support below it and could lead to some serious losses. RSI has failed to break above 60 several this. This failed break above 60 is connected with price action being unable to break above $4.60. MACD wave indicator is currently suggesting that a selling wave is present and the bearish volume is increasing. Overall trend on this short time frame is a strong downtrend. A break below $4.30 will lead to extended losses to $4.20.   submitted by   /u/imphare [link]   [comments]

  16. The Moderna share price has risen +400%: should I buy the stock now? (18/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Since the outbreak of the pandemic last March, Moderna (NASDAQ: MRNA) has risen around 430%, mainly due to the vaccine rollout. Although there was a spike after its initial vaccine announcement, the Moderna share price has been rather volatile since. With it currently sat at $160, here I am going to look at whether now I deem a good time to add Moderna to my portfolio. A solid 2021 The rest of 2021 looks set to mark a good period for Moderna. With Q1 revenues recently announced at $1.9bn, this is substantially more than the $571m revenue of Q4 last year. Moderna recently stated it intends to supply 800 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines in 2021 and three billion in 2022 – a factor that is likely to continue to boost revenue. This places my confidence for the future Moderna share price in good stead, as the large demand is likely to continue. Moderna also recently announced it had signed advance purchase agreements for $19.2bn, all for Covid-19 vaccines, set to be delivered this year. Many analysts also seem to remain positive about the Moderna share price for the future, regardless of the intellectual property (IP) rights scare (explained below). Goldman Sachs raised its target price on the biotech stock to $228, up from $206. Barclays also raised its target to $194 from an original $178. Not all good news However, I cannot see the long term providing opportunities for a rise in the Moderna share price. Firstly, although the rest of 2021 and potentially 2022 provides optimism for Moderna, after this I can see the Covid-19 vaccine market falling off. I suspect by the end of 2022 that a large proportion of populations would have been vaccinated. As a result of this, I predict demand to drop – and therefore more than likely a fall in the Moderna share price. Another negative is the recent announcement by the Biden administration coming out in support for the suspension of Covid-19 vaccine IP rights. This could allow lesser-developed countries to create vaccines locally, potentially affecting the revenue of Moderna. Countries such as India, with its current huge infection problem, could opt for cheaper ways to inoculate its large population. Post-Covid-19 potential? Although many analysts remain positive about the future Moderna share price, I do not share the same levels of optimism. I see the IP rights narrative, supported by the World Trade Organization, potentially posing a real problem for Moderna should it go ahead. Prior to the pandemic, the Moderna share price hovered between $18-$25. With it currently sat well over $150, should the vaccine rollout come to an end within the next few years, what is to stop the share price from falling back down to these levels? From a short-term perspective, I see potential in the Moderna share price for the rest of 2021 and possibly 2022. However, I tend to view stocks with a long-term outlook. As such, I am opting against buying Moderna any time soon. FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?

  17. Help me understand this Wash sale rule in taxes? (25/03/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    I have a question about wash sale rule, if I buy on 3/10 25 shares of a XYZ stock @ $100 then on 3/13 price drop then I buy more @$80 then value keeps dropping and on 3/15 I buy 50 shares @$60 so far I own 100 [email protected]$75 average down then again the The stock price keeps falling then decide to sale all my 100 shares on 3/20 at $ 50. Now I have a loss of $2500. Why I can't claim this as a loss if I didn't keep any share? I know I bought share 30 days before but I didn't keep any or bought anymore after 30 days. My Robinhood taxes form added all this as a wash sale loss. I know the point of prevent Wash-sale rules is to prohibit investors from selling a security at a loss, buying the same security again, and then realizing those tax losses through a reduction in capital gains taxes. I didn't sell to claim losses and buy again I did it o avoid of losing more money and I never when back in.   submitted by   /u/GeovannaGavilanes29 [link]   [comments]

  18. Intel Processor Market Share May Fall to New Low Next Year Due to Apple Silicon (18/06/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Intel may see its market share fall to a new low next year, in large part thanks to Apple's decision to move away from using Intel processors in its Mac computers and instead use Apple silicon. As a result of the four Macs with ?M1? and upcoming releases, Intel this year will lose 50% of its orders from Apple, and eventually, losing all orders from the Cupertino tech giant will lead to Intel's market share falling below 80% in 2023, according to DigiTimes. However, Apple's in-house developed Arm-based processor series is expected to play the key role in taking a major chunk from Intel's share in the upcoming year, the sources said. Intel is expected to lose nearly 50% of its orders from Apple in 2021 and will eventually obtain no orders from the client. Losing Apple's 10% market share and seeing AMD staying firmly with another 10%, Intel's share in the notebook market is likely to slip below 80% in 2023, the sources noted. https://www.macrumors.com/2021/06/18/intel-market-share-falling-apple-silicon/   submitted by   /u/chrisdh79 [link]   [comments]

  19. The Boohoo share price is falling. Should I buy now? (16/09/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Boohoo (LSE: BOO) share price has had a nightmare few months. The online fashion retailer’s shares spiked in June 2020 as consumers became reliant on online shopping. However, in the past six months, the shares are down 20%. Let’s take a closer look if this stock could be a good buy for my portfolio. Bearish trajectory I think there are two main reasons why the Boohoo share price is falling. Firstly, the company has seen a number of allegations about underpayment of workers in its supply chain. In December 2020, the Guardian reported that in a Pakistani factory, workers were paid just 29p an hour to manufacture Boohoo garments. Similar cases have plagued Boohoo throughout 2021. In addition to this, the company is fighting a £100m lawsuit over misleading advertising. I think the constant ESG battles Boohoo seems to face is beginning to turn investors sour. Unless it can begin to solve these issues, I think the Boohoo share price has further to fall in the future. Secondly, the spike in growth for 2020 seems to have slowed throughout 2021. I would expect this to be the case, as pandemic restrictions ease and people spend more time in physical stores rather than shopping online. Boohoo reported a 40% rise in revenues for 2020. However, the growth forecast for 2021 is 25%. I think this is another reason the Boohoo share price has been falling in recent months. Reasons to be optimistic That being said, there are a number of reasons why I think the Boohoo share price could rise in the near future. The company’s net cash position looks healthy at just under £200m, which is encouraging, considering its recent acquisitions that have included Karen Miller, Oasis, Debenhams, and Dorothy Perkins. These acquisitions also help Boohoo add vital market share, which will help ward off competition and increase revenues. Despite this, the group’s margins have stayed strong. Revenues rose from £195m in 2016 to £1.4bn in 2020. Over the same five years, profits rose from £15m to £91m representing margins of just under 10% in both years. This shows me the firm can stay consistently profitable, even while massively scaling up operations. This fact, coupled with the recent acquisitions, gives me confidence for the future of the share price. Boohoo share price: The verdict If Boohoo can get some of its ESG problems in check, I think the group has a bright future ahead of it. The current P/E ratio of Boohoo is 29.5, which is over half its five-year average. Therefore, I think the current Boohoo share price offers some good value. For me, the fact that margins have stayed in check despite the ambitious expansion, is the most encouraging factor.

  20. $ZKIN we look for a correction higher, possibly testing $5.40. (10/05/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Since the last 15m outlook the price of ZKIN has fell by 6% as it's being valued slightly above $5 per share. We've expected in our previous analysis that the price will move towards a test of $5.60, which break of could easily reach $6 per share. At first try, the price action wasn't able to break above previous local high at $5.47, causing the price to test the support of the flag pattern. Support failed to hold and the price broke below it, however this dip attracted buyers and a break of $5.60 happened. The break of $5.60 led to extended gains to almost $6 per share, as gains were capped at $5.97. Impressive volume has arrived, however the price action wasn't able to sustain above bespoke resistance at $5.60, which led to a selloff. Currently the price is still under selling pressure and has created a new lower low at $5.06, luckily just a $0.03 lower than the previous one so nothing too significant. As long as we don't see a drop below $4.80, the price should just be fine. Current price action won't tell us anything about possible reversal, however the 5 minute time frame seems to be forming a falling wedge, which we've seen previously. RSI is creating a bullish divergence, an inconsistency between the oscillator and the price action. The price action has created a lower low while the oscillator created a higher one. This fact is pointing towards a correction to the upside to occur. MACD is in a really significant selling wave, however such strong pressure has never been able to sustain for an extended period of time base on the chart history. We look for selling volume to falter from now on. Overall trend unfortunately wasn't able to sustain in uptrend as the price broke below both 20 and 50 EMA, meaning the short term is a strong downtrend, but an overextended one calling for an oversold correction to the upside. In conclusion, we look for a correction higher, possibly testing $5.40.   submitted by   /u/BreianaOlson [link]   [comments]

  21. Which is better, the ASOS or Boohoo share price? (14/09/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Both ASOS (LSE: ASC) and Boohoo (LSE: BOO) enjoyed online sales boosts during the Covid-19 pandemic. But the effects are already fading. The Boohoo share price is down 18% since immediately before the crash. And the ASOS share price has fallen 8%. ASOS shares rose higher than Boohoo’s in early 2021, after having crunched to a more painful crash in the immediate onset of the panic. Why has ASOS been more volatile? Maybe it’s because ASOS is the poorer performer over the longer term, and investors saw greater potential for a rebound? Boohoo is up 177% over the past five years, against a 32% fall for ASOS. So I suspect chart watchers might simply see the latter as better value. But why are the shares falling now? And is this a good time to buy? End of pandemic? Some of it will certainly be due to a reverse-pandemic effect. Now we’re emerging into a freer shopping environment, the advantage is swinging away from online-focused retailers, in theory. I am surprised by the scale of the effect on Boohoo, mind. For most of the lockdown period, the Boohoo share price was actually hovering close to its immediate pre-pandemic levels. The ASOS share price, meanwhile, soared quite a bit higher, especially in early 2021. So a reversal of some of those gains fits in better with my expectations in that case. In fact, the relatively modest performance of Boohoo shares helped in my decision to buy some in November. They hadn’t climbed irrationally, so they were unlikely to fall, right? Wrong. Boohoo’s problems Boohoo does face issues in the wider world, as my Motley Fool colleague Rupert Hargreaves has explained. The problems include a US lawsuit over the firm’s pricing policies. And Boohoo has faced a fair bit of criticism in the UK over working practices. Rupert rates Boohoo a long-term buy, and on that we agree. He also thinks the Boohoo share price price could continue to fall in the shorter term, while the current problems persist. I fear he might be right. Meanwhile, how about ASOS? On the current ASOS share price, we’re looking at a forecast P/E of only 22. And that’s well below historical valuations. In the years before the 2020 crash, ASOS stock was regularly valued on multiples of around 70. Boohoo share price valuation I reckon that was way too high, as growth stocks often go. But now, I think it’s fallen a good bit too far. Boohoo’s P/E valuation has dropped similarly, though not quite as far. On today’s Boohoo share price, we’re looking at a forecast P/E of about 25. That’s not a lot higher, but it might suggest that ASOS is the better buy now. So what will I do about these two? Well, I do share fears that both Boohoo and ASOS could be in for a weak spell. And I could see both share prices going nowhere in the short term, or even falling further. But for the long term, the two companies’ growth prospects still look very strong to me. And I see an eventual upturn in their share prices as almost inevitable. I would be happy to buy and hold either at current prices.

  23. Why is the Argo Blockchain (ARB) share price still falling? (19/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Would I buy Bitcoin? No. Would I buy shares in Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB)? Maybe. That might sound strange, so I’ll explain. To me, it’s similar to gold. I won’t buy gold, because it’s a straight gamble on where the gold price might go next. But a gold miner is different. Based on a range of possible gold prices, we can estimate some sort of base level for the long-term profits a miner might make. Similarly, it should be possible to come to some sort of rational valuation for the ARB share price, shouldn’t it? It’s not easy right now. Rather than any fundamental valuation based on profits, the Argo Blockchain share price is really just following where cryptocurrencies are going. Bitcoin has soared in 2021, but it’s fallen back some way since its high in April. And that’s what ARB shares have done too. It seems it’s all down to Elon Musk. Tesla accepts Bitcoin in payment for cars? Buy Bitcoin. Oh, Tesla won’t take it any more? Sell Bitcoin. He says Tesla might sell its Bitcoin holdings, then he says it hasn’t… you get the picture. It seems crazy to me to value something based on whatever one person happens to tweet in any one day, even someone as successful and charismatic as Musk. But that’s the way the cryptocurrency world seems to work. ARB share price down again Argo Blockchain ended Tuesday down 5.8%, at 130p. That’s still a climb of more than 2,500% over the past 12 months. But the price hit a peak of 360p at on 26 March, and has since plunged 65%. That suggests it’s hugely risky buying into a crypto mining stock, way more than a gold mining stock. To get back to my gold miner comparison, I’d value a mining stock based largely on the cost of extraction per ounce. I’d examine historical gold prices, and work out what margins the miner might make at various levels. And if I think there’s still decent profit even if gold falls significantly, I’ll seriously consider buying the shares. I’d want to see the share price trading at a discount to what I think the underlying profits might be like. But that’s not happening with the ARB share price. Speculative valuation At the end of April, Argo held a total of 936 Bitcoin, or Bitcoin equivalent (BTC). And it was mining at a rate of around 1,970 BTC per year. The company’s current market-cap stands at a fraction under £500m, or about the equivalent of 16,600 Bitcoin. Mining at current rates would take around eight years to generate enough BTC to match the firm’s valuation. Well, presumably longer, as it costs money to run all the computers. I know Argo plans to raise its production rate, but that will cost more money. And, right now, the ARB share price still appears to value the company based solely on the speculative future value of Bitcoin. It’s not based on any proven sustainable profits the company might make. Should that happen, that’s when I’ll consider buying.

  25. 3 steps I’d follow to find cheap UK dividend shares to invest in (14/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    There are two components that are of interest to me when looking to find cheap UK dividend shares. The first element is the price, as I don’t want to be buying a stock that I know is overvalued. Second, I want to look at the dividend I’ll be receiving. I want to be happy with the dividend per share, along with the dividend yield. So on the basis of the above, three steps will help me along the way. Trying to find a cheap share The first step I could look at would be the price-to-earnings ratio, to try and find a cheap UK dividend share. Usually, a low figure could suggest the company is undervalued. This is because the size of earnings dwarfs the share price, which should be a good sign. If earnings attributable to shareholders are high, then it’s logical to think the dividend paid will be generous.  What makes a P/E ratio low enough to for me buy? That’s less easy to compute. Anything below the FTSE 100 average is a good starting point. However, P/E multiples also depend on the industry, so I would want to look at the ratio in comparison to competitors as well.  One point I do need to remember though is that a low P/E ratio doesn’t always mean a cheap UK dividend share. The stock’s history is important. For example, if the share price has been falling due to bad news, and the earnings figure used is stale, the ratio could be misleading. In fact, this could indicate the dividend might be cut, so I need to do my homework. Using yield and cover to find UK dividend shares Step two involves checking the dividend yield of different stocks within the market. This information is readily available, and gives me a good barometer regarding which UK dividend stocks offer the highest yield.  Just like the P/E ratio though, the figure has to be used carefully. Technically, I could just buy the stock with the highest yield. After all, this offers me the highest dividend relative to the price of the stock. But again, the share price may have been falling for valid reasons. If the last dividend was paid out several months ago, the dividend yield might not accurately reflect the current situation of the firm. It may see a dividend cut in the future, reducing the yield. So for UK dividend shares, I need to look at the sustainability of the dividend. This is my third and final step. I can use the dividend cover metric to help me in this regard. It shows how much the earnings cover the dividend. Logically, I want the figure to be above one, and a high number is beneficial. My thinking is that if the company has enough earnings to cover the dividend, then it ranks as a sustainable (and cheap) UK dividend share worth buying.  Although I need to be careful with financial equations, the above three steps involving ratios should help me when trying to pick out shares worth buying.

  26. Does a lower share price mean bigger profits? (14/08/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    This is basics maths I know. If you bought $100 of a stock at $0.2 per share and $100 of a stock at $20 per share and both stocks went up 10% then you make the same profit on each stock? In other words does it really matter the share price of a stock for profits or just the percent they go up? And this is for day trading, buying and selling fast.   submitted by   /u/Ram_1979 [link]   [comments]

  27. The Amazon share price is at its lowest for years. Time to buy? (05/08/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    When I think of Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN), I think of the most successful e-commerce platform in the world and the wealthiest man on earth, Jeff Bezos. So when I heard that the Amazon share price has become the most undervalued that its been in years, it caught my attention. The price has dropped 8% in the past few days and I am wondering whether now is the right time to buy. So should I jump on the e-commerce giant’s falling share price or wait for an even better entry point?  Amazon’s Q2 report Amazon’s underperforming second quarter is what has been causing this disruption. Evidently, Amazon has fallen victim to a post-Covid hangover with its earnings falling by more than 7.5% and missing its second-quarter revenue expectations. Its results report also gave an estimation of sales growth of 10% to 16% for Q3. This is a downgrade from previous Amazon trading reports.  On top of this, Amazon Prime purchases have hit their slowest growth rate in four quarters.  I have to mention that these results are in no way catastrophic for Amazon, but they have tempered the mood of bullish investors. While revenue was $2bn below estimates, the company still reported 27% year-on-year growth. Is now the time to invest?  As mentioned above, the Amazon share price has dropped massively in the past week and has fallen into the red zone. Although I am hesitant to invest right now, I do think there is an opportunity for me to buy shares in the near future.  Despite the underwhelming Q2 report, Amazon is still showing positive financial indicators. Net income rose by 50% to $7.8bn with $15.12 per diluted share, and overall revenue increased to $113.08 billion. I find it hard to imagine that the falling share price will last forever, as Amazon is one of the biggest companies in the world today. I see the drop as just some pull-back after bullish investors overestimated the post-Covid performance of Amazon.  Further, the online shopping industry is set to grow by 20% in the next decade which is great news for Amazon.   How I plan to place my investment The Amazon share price is $3,354.72 as I write. If I take a step back for a second, I can see that Amazon has been trading in a $500 bracket between $3,000 and $3,500 for nearly a year now. The share failed to break through the $3,500 mark back in June, despite a huge push from investors.  My plan is to wait for the price to continue falling towards the $3,000 mark. I believe a price at this threshold will be its lowest. From there I will decide to add Amazon to my portfolio. In my opinion, this is the most secure way to place my investment.  Despite the disappointment from the Q2 report and current drop in the Amazon share price, I am convinced that eventually the company will return to its usual winning ways and the share price will continue in a positive trajectory.  The post The Amazon share price is at its lowest for years. Time to buy? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK. “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.

  29. $APP price drop (12/08/2021 - Reddit Stock Market)
    Can anyone explain what's going on with $APPS? The price was around $65 about the time they reported of $0.34 earnings per share as opposed to $0.26 estimates. Since that time the price went to around $68 per share but has since dropped to $58-$57 a share. If I'm looking at it right (I'm a rookie) their debt is low, and their cash flow is high, they make payments regularly so the debt isn't an issue. Also, they generate good cash, and will generate more cash in the future. One other thing there's no bad news and it looks like there's some pretty positive news. I read one post, elsewhere, that said the price was being manipulated by market makers to drive the price down so institutions could step in and buy it at bargain prices. What's going on and is this a good stock to buy right now? Thanks.   submitted by   /u/evetsegape [link]   [comments]

  30. Shares in this growth stock are falling and I might buy soon (24/05/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    So-called growth stocks had a strong 2020 – especially if they were tech-related. These shares often pay a lower dividend and instead reinvest heavily back into the business to grow more. One such share is gaming company Team17 (LSE: TM17). However, investors’ rotation to value, stoked by fears of inflation, along with valuations getting just a bit high and tough comparisons against a very strong 2020, have all bought the share price of this growth stock down. What’s happening with this growth stock share price? So far this year, the Team17 share price is down 20%. Over 12 months, however, the shares are still up, by around 12%. The fall has been particularly steep recently. Potentially that opens up a buying opportunity. If we look back further over a longer period of time, the shares have delivered for shareholders. Five years ago the shares traded at just over 200p. At the time of writing, they are 680p. Even final results in mid-March that showed revenue up 34% and profit before tax up 36% haven’t helped the share price. The games producer released a record number of new games, so is performing well on an operational, as well as a financial, front. I think overall, as the results highlight, Team17 is a strong business but investors feel there are better opportunities and greater value in other parts of the market. That’s why the shares have been falling. Would I add to my portfolio? I think Team 17 is a very good company. Because has strong financials and fundamentals, it has a good games catalogue to help it earn future revenues and it has an entrepreneurial founder who is still CEO and a major shareholder. But alongside all those positives there is a risk of trying to catch a falling knife if I invest now. As good as the company may be, the share price could keep falling. The price-to-earnings ratio, while well down, is still potentially quite high. Also, if lots of investors are putting money into reopening stocks, then that could squeeze stocks that were considered winners from the pandemic because the conditions that helped their share prices are now being reversed. The big question is: does the opportunity to go outdoors mean less demand for gaming? I’m not sure it does long term. Gaming is still a growth industry. That’s why I’ll keep the shares on my watchlist and wait for any signs of recovery. My last point is that the shares are starting to look decent value for a gaming stock. So it’s a case of decent growth share, but the share price is being beaten down and may continue to be so. I don’t want to add this too early into my portfolio, even if I am investing for the long term.  FREE REPORT: Why this £5 stock could be set to surge Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?

  31. The Argo Blockchain share price is falling again this week. Should I buy? (22/06/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Argo Blockchain (LSE: ARB) has been tumbling since its high point in early 2021. It is still up around 3,000% in 12 months, mind, so the loss has to be seen in perspective. Still, the Argo Blockchain share price did fall 15% at one point on Monday, to open the week in negative territory. There was a bit of recovery by the end of the day, with ARB shares finishing on a 6% decline. The shares peaked at 360p in March. So, on Monday’s close of 133p, we’re looking at a fall of 63% since since then. On that score, it’s a bit of a classic growth stock. If we get in early enough, we can make big gains. But if we’re too late for the peak, painful losses can come our way. What’s different about Argo Blockchain, though, is the magnitude of these early swings — I haven’t seen many that have soared this much in just 12 months. As usual, I didn’t spot the rapidly rising share price and get my head around it until too late. So there’s no point wondering what I did wrong to have missed out on the profits. With my cautious investing strategy, I’ll simply never be in on early gains like this. But I do buy growth stocks from time to time, usually when they reach their second or third growth cycles. So it’s very much worth my while trying to decide where the Argo Blockchain share price might go next. Just like a gold miner? Even though I wouldn’t buy Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies, I would definitely not rule out buying ARB shares. It’s a bit like my approach to gold. I wouldn’t buy the metal itself, as it’s not a productive asset. But I would buy gold miner shares, as they produce new gold. There is one major difference, though. The price of gold, upon which a gold miner’s share price ultimately depends, is far less volatile than the Bitcoin price. Over the past 12 months, Bitcoin has varied from a low of $8,975 to a high of $64,863. As I write, it’s hovering around the $32,500 level. The reason for the extreme volatility in the Argo Blockchain share price seems clear. It really does closely follow the Bitcoin price. Is the Argo Blockchain share price attractive? In its most recent update, Argo reported the mining of 166 Bitcoin or Bitcoin equivalent (BTC) for the month of May. That means the company had, up until then, mined 716 BTC year-to-date. And at the end of May, it held a total of 1,108 BTC. At the current Bitcoin price, that’s worth approximately $36m, or £25.8m.

  32. The Lloyds share price is falling again! Should I take advantage and buy? (12/02/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Lloyds (LSE: LLOY) share price has been falling again over the past week. Shares in the lender have declined just over 3% since Monday. It appears that concerns about the group’s exposure to the fragile UK economy are behind the decline.  This decline is just the latest in a string of ups and downs. Over the past six months, the Lloyds share price has increased in value by around 25%. However, over the past 12 months, the stock is down 36%. Over the past five years, it is off 40% excluding dividends.  Put simply, the bank has been a tough investment to hold over the past five years. But, with the outlook for the UK economy improving, should I make the most of the latest decline and buy the shares?  Is the Lloyds share price on offer?  Shares in Lloyds tend to move in tandem with the UK economic outlook. As one of the country’s largest lenders, that’s understandable. If the economy starts to stutter, the bank will likely be one of the first businesses to report a decline in sales and rising loan losses.  I think this is the reason why the Lloyds share price has been so volatile over the past half-decade. Brexit and the coronavirus crisis have been two challenging headwinds for the UK economy. As such, it has been difficult to predict what the future holds for the economy and the country’s largest companies.  However, at least one of these headwinds has now been removed. Brexit has happened, and while some sectors have suffered from the changes, overall, the economy seems to have taken the changes in its stride so far.  That leaves coronavirus. So far, the pandemic’s impact has not been as bad on Lloyds and its peers as initially expected. Unfortunately, we won’t know the crisis’s ultimate impact until it’s over. That suggests to me that this headwind will continue to weigh on the Lloyds share price in the near term.  Mixed outlook It’s difficult to predict how Lloyds will cope in the world after the pandemic and over the long term. It’s impossible to tell what the economy will look like 12 months from now, and how quickly it will recover.  Therefore, while the stock might look attractive after its recent declines, projecting future growth is almost impossible. That makes it difficult for me to say whether it is worth buying the stock today. On the one hand, the Lloyds share price could be a great way to play the UK economic recovery. But on the other hand, if it is impossible to tell what the future holds for the UK economy, it is also impossible to say what the future holds for the bank.  Still, I am cautiously optimistic about Lloyds’ outlook, but I am wary of the risks involved. So, I would buy the stock for my portfolio today, but it wouldn’t be a large position.  There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!

  33. Why I’d avoid the Shell share price and buy BP shares instead (18/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    After falling around 40% since the end of 2019, the Shell (LSE: RDSB) share price looks cheap. However, while I think the stock appears cheap compared to history, I think the business is facing some severe challenges. As such, I would avoid Shell and buy BP (LSE: BP) shares instead. I believe the latter has a much brighter long term outlook.  Shell share price challenges  Over the past 12 months, Shell has faced some huge hurdles. As well as the pandemic, the company has had to develop a plan to deal with the climate crisis. There’s a concerted effort by consumers and companies worldwide to move away from dirty hydrocarbon fuels towards renewable energy. Big Oil corporations like Shell and BP need to adapt with the times or be left behind.  While the company is pushing ahead with its plans to develop the business for the future, investors want more. The Shell share price has continued to languish despite management’s efforts.  I can see why. By 2030 Shell aims to double the electricity it sells, delivering the equivalent of more than 50m households with renewable electricity. It also wants to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.  I think this falls far short of BP’s ambitions. This company is planning to cut its oil and gas output by 40% by 2030. It is looking to increase renewable energy production to 50GW by 2030, up from the 2.5GW it has today. That’s a 20-fold increase.  I think these numbers imply the Shell share price will continue to underperform BP shares as we advance. A falling oil price and rising production costs suggest oil and gas profit margins will shrink over the next few years. Meanwhile, increasing demand for renewable energy could lead to higher profits from renewables output. Time to buy BP shares? There’s no guarantee BP shares will benefit significantly from its decision to invest more in renewable energy. It seems to be the right thing to do today, but the environment could change quickly. The world is still consuming a tremendous amount of oil and gas every year, and some analysts believe that falling spending in the sector could push oil prices significantly higher in the near term. This would be hugely positive for the Shell share price, and it may leave BP in the lurch as the company chases expensive renewable energy projects. Still, BP is not abandoning oil and gas entirely, not yet anyway.  The most considerable uncertainty facing both of these businesses is the oil price. The price of oil is highly unpredictable. It can rise or fall as much as 5% in a single day. This makes it very difficult to predict the future for oil and gas investments, such as BP shares and the Shell share price.  Still, considering the enormous worldwide shift towards renewable energy, I would buy BP shares for my portfolio today and avoid Shell. This is based on BP’s commitment to spend more on renewable energy over the next few decades.  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.

  34. Why is the Cineworld share price falling? (13/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Cineworld (LSE: CINE) share price has dropped 20% in the past month. Its fall is an even more spectacular 75% compared to the one-year highs it saw just a few months ago in March.  Since cinemas have reopened in both the US and the UK, where Cineworld operates, this is a curious development. I could understand investor nervousness when there was no end in sight for the pandemic. But now that we are increasingly out and about and there has been no material update from the company itself since May, the sharp fall in its share price looks like a contradiction.  Stock rotation in action I do believe, however, that there are reasons to be found when we look at the bigger picture. The trend of falling share prices is visible across stocks. Consider the Lloyds Bank share price, which touched a one-year high in early June, and has fallen since. Or the FTSE 250 airline easyJet share price that was at its highest levels in a year in May, and has fallen 19% since.  It would be tempting to think that this is only the case with reopening, or soon to reopen, stocks, but that is not the case either. FTSE 100 mining biggies like Anglo American and Rio Tinto show a similar pattern in the past few months. And the outlook for metals has been bullish for the past year now.  This backdrop indicates that investors are probably selling off stocks that rallied in the past few months. And that there is a stock market rotation back to those that have struggled in the recent past, a reversal from the trend seen in November last year. As examples consider the AstraZeneca share that languished for months before it started rising again in March and continues to do so. A similar story is visible for the FTSE 100 utility Severn Trent. Persistent pandemic I also believe that some persisting uncertainty about the pandemic could be weighing on investor sentiment. Sure, we have come a long way. But there is still a possibility that we could go back to some restrictions even now. And who knows how that will impact already vulnerable stocks like Cineworld.  What’s next for the Cineworld share price I reckon though, that the Cineworld share price can rally from its current abysmal levels again. In fact, I am enough of a believer in the stock to have bought it and now I will buy more of it at a lower price. Here is why.  First, the nature of stock rotation is such that it comes back to beaten down shares over time. The same can happen in this case. Next, the cinema chain’s results are due next month, which should show some improvement over the past year. Of course it goes without saying that weakness will still be visible, as a legacy of the pandemic, but I reckon it can indicate hope for the future. That can build confidence back up in the stock.  I maintain that it is a buy for me.  The post Why is the Cineworld share price falling? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK. “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. The IAG share price is falling: should I buy in now? (07/09/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Since March, the IAG (LSE: IAG) share price has been following a disappointing trajectory. The aviation industry was hit hardest by the pandemic with a near-global standstill in travel. However, throughout the tail end of 2020 and the start of 2021, things seemed to be picking up. This progress has since reversed, with IAG falling over 23% in the past six months. So, is now a good time to grab some cheap IAG shares? Let’s take a closer look. IAG share price valuation The IAG share price is currently sitting at 155p. It’s currently trading off of a price-to-sales (P/S) ratio of 1.63. This is significantly lower than competitors easyJet and Ryanair, who trade off P/S ratios of 4.15 and 9.54 respectively. This shows me that IAG stock may be undervalued at current prices. A slightly worrying point is that the firm’s enterprise value (EV) has actually increased since before the pandemic. EV is calculated by adding together the firm’s market cap and net debt, showing how much someone would theoretically have to pay to buy the business outright. At the end of 2019, IAG’s enterprise value was about £16.5bn. Today it is just below £20bn. This signals the business is valued a lot higher than in 2019, even though flight numbers and revenues have decreased. However, this does not worry me. The main reason this number has increased is because IAG added £3.8bn of debt to its balance sheet during the pandemic. This was a theme across most of the aviation industry, with easyJet also forced to take a £1.4bn debt package. TUI followed a similar path, finishing 2020 with over £6.5bn in net debt. The fact that all of these firms will have seen significant jumps in EV makes me believe that the IAG share price may still offer good value at current levels. Pushing higher IAG’s half-year results did show some encouraging numbers. Q2 passenger capacity was only 21% of 2019 levels, but this is expected to rise to 45% for Q3. In addition to this, IAG has a strong cash position of £8.5bn. Both of these numbers point towards a rising IAG share price in the near future. However, many analysts have stated they don’t believe the aviation industry will fully recover until 2024. Many countries like the US, Australia, and New Zealand still have strict Covid-19 travel restrictions. As British Airways makes most of its business from long-haul flights, these continued restrictions are likely to stifle future growth.  Overall, I think the IAG share price offers some good value at current levels. However, this doesn’t mean there is not further to fall. In a few years, I think we could see a good recovery and the IAG share price will be significantly higher than where it is now. In the short term though, I am not convinced this is a buying opportunity. The post The IAG share price is falling: should I buy in now? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  40. Why is a share price on the market higher than value of the company portion it represents? (03/04/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    In a very basic sense, stock is purchased for the ownership of a company. It’s price grows on the market following supply and demand, and as such the price of a single share may rise as the value of a company rises and more people want to buy that share than those willing to sell. But why is the portion of a company granted by that share worth less than what it’s paid for? Suppose a company has a book value of $180M and has 100M shares outstanding on the market for $5. Its market cap, which encompasses its intangibles and growth potential is nearly 3x as much as its book value, signaling the market believes the company is and will continue doing well (in theory). Now since a share indicates owning a portion of the company, a single share in this company is worth 0.00000001%, or if the company liquidated its assets today, $1.8; so why would somebody want to buy a share of a company for more than what that share is worth? Is the delta between its intrinsic value and the market value the “mark up” for the current share holder to earn for giving their position away? This brings up the question, if you exclude capital appreciation from the equation, if the share price on the market is more than the intrinsic value it losses at purchase, the hope would be that over time the value of the company grows such that the shares intrinsic value eventually exceeds what you paid for it, right?   submitted by   /u/mahtats [link]   [comments]

  42. Does the Chesnara share price offer good value at current levels? (12/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    I’m always on the lookout for good quality companies that could be worth an investment. Although I mostly focus on stocks in the FTSE 100, there are smaller companies that can fly under the radar. For example, the Chesnara (LSE:CSN) share price has caught my attention. The FTSE All Share stock is up almost 3% today. So should I consider investing now? Backstory  Chesnara is a life insurance company, servicing around 0.9m policies in the UK and around Europe. Its largest market is actually Sweden, where it currently has 365,000 policies.  Like other companies in the industry, Chesnara operates a business model that generates high cash flow and cash retention. In the 2020 results, the group solvency ratio was an impressive 156%. Aside from having liquid assets for solvency, it uses the funds to pay out to shareholders in the form of dividends. This is one reason why I think the Chesnara share price appeals to some, as income investors buy the stock for dividends. Chesnara defines the change in cash generation as “the movement in the group’s surplus own funds above the group’s internally required capital.” To this end, it measures the growth over time. Over the past five years, it’s grown 152%.  For 2020, it paid out a dividend of 21.9p per share. With the Chesnara share price currently trading around 268p, this gives a dividend yield of 8%. When I consider that the FTSE 100 average dividend yield is around 3%, this is very attractive. Is there value in the Chesnara share price? As an income investor, I’d say there is good value to be had. To be able to buy the stock when it offers a dividend yield in excess of 8% is something that appeals to me.  The company also has grown the dividend per share for the past 16 years, so I feel this is a sustainable yield going forward. However, the Chesnara share price could be a value trap when I look at historical share price performance. The shares are down just over 5% over the past year. Two years ago shares were trading at 353p, meaning that I’d be down over 33% if I’d bought shares then. So even with a healthy dividend yield, I’d still be in the red overall over this time period due to the falling share price. What has caused the falling share price? The pandemic clearly negatively impacted business. Pre-tax profits in 2020 were down to £24.6m from £96.1m in 2019. Given that the results ran through to the end of the calendar year, I’d expect 2021 full-year results also to be impacted. Another reason for concern is the fact that the company uses Asset Liability Matching (ALM) for its insurance. This aims to cover the future liabilities due by investing in low risk assets (such as bonds). However, with interest rates and bond yields falling, the return on these assets is unlikely to be particularly high. After looking into it, I’m deciding against investing in Chesnara shares. I appreciate the dividend yield is good, but the risk of having my income more than eroded by a falling share price is too high at present.

  44. Is there a way to do a limit sell but ONLY on the way down? (19/05/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Let's say I want to invest $100 in a share of a security and I think may rise to, say, 100% of its current value. I would then set a limit sell order at $200 so that when the price crosses $200/share it would trigger a sale. What if I want another, smaller limit sale as a safety at 50% but ONLY once it crosses the price and falls under it. For example, I purchase a security for $100 and I set a limit sell if the price dips below $150 but NOT when it crosses $150 the first time. Is there a way to do this type of limit sell where the price can pass the specified price but will only sell on the way down? Additionally, can I do this at the same time I have another limit sell for 100%, or 200/share? Thank you!   submitted by   /u/Reddspez [link]   [comments]

  45. 3 red flags when I’m looking for the best shares to buy now (08/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    When I’m looking for the best shares to buy now, I usually screen for them with positive criteria. What I mean by this is that I look for the good points in the companies I’m considering. For example, a firm that has grown profits year after year at a good pace would mean a tick on my checklist. On the other hand, I do also need to look for negative red flags. And here are some of the important ones that I keep an eye out for. Extreme ratios A good metric that can be used to find the best undervalued shares to buy now is the price-to-earnings ratio. This measures the proportion of earnings relative to the current share price. In theory, if the ratio is lower than average then it could suggest the share price is undervalued.  A red flag here is if the P/E ratio is very low. In this case, it might not suggest an undervalued share worth snapping up. Rather, it could reflect a struggling business that I need to avoid. For example, it might be low because investors are expecting profit to tank in the next report. With the pandemic still negatively impacting companies, this is something I need to watch out for. Another red flag is a too-good-to-be-true dividend yield. This yield is a good metric to look at the income I’d receive from dividends. Yet I need to be careful in just using this number without any other checks. A company could have a very attractive dividend yield and the reason for this might be sustainable. But it might not. For example, a falling share price would artificially boost the dividend yield. In the future, the dividend might be cut if the falling share price is due to a financially unstable business. So it actually wouldn’t be the best share to buy now. A top share, but potentially high volatility Something I need to look out for is the volatility of the best shares to buy now. A stock might be moving higher, with a lot of interest from investors. But if the volatility is very high, it could ring alarm bells for me. This is because the potential drawdowns in the share price could be high. On a day to day basis, I could see wild swings that might put me off.  Volatility can be my friend at times. But before I choose to buy the share I’m considering, I need to make sure I’m happy with taking on the emotional rollercoaster of a volatile stock. With all the three red flags I’ve mentioned, it’s important to note that they’re my opinion. There will be some shares with a low P/E ratio or a high dividend yield that I’ll stay away from. Another investor might be happy with the risks, and it could work out in their favour. Even with volatility, some investors see this as a green flag, not a red one!  The post 3 red flags when I’m looking for the best shares to buy now appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  46. Is this why the IAG share price keeps falling? (09/09/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    Last year, when the world went into lockdown as the coronavirus pandemic spread globally, it was easy to understand why the IAG (LSE: IAG) share price went into freefall. Between the beginning of 2020 and October, the stock lost more than 80% of its value, as revenues and profits plunged.  However, over the past six months, the global economy has started to open up again. Consumers are going on holiday, and planes are back in the sky, but the IAG share price remains depressed. Although it’s increased in value modestly since its 2020 low, the stock is still trading 60% below the level it began 2020. Over the past 12 months, it’s added just 12%.  Lagging behind  IAG has struggled even as its peers have pushed ahead. Shares in easyJet have increased by more than a third over the past 12 months. Meanwhile, Ryanair has returned nearly 40%.  I think there’s one main reason why the IAG share price has performed so poorly compared to its peers. That is the state of the international and long-haul air travel market.  IAG’s British Airways brand virtually dominates in the highly lucrative UK-US transatlantic route. When the group acquired Aer Lingus several years ago, it only increased its dominance in this market.  Unfortunately, as the domestic aviation market in Europe and the US has started to recover, the transatlantic and other long-haul routes are still struggling.  In July, Heathrow, which is usually the busiest airport in Europe and handles most long-haul flights out of the UK, reported passenger numbers were down 90% compared to 2019 levels. By comparison, easyJet is running around 60% of its pre-pandemic capacity. These figures aren’t wholly comparable, but they illustrate that short-haul travel across Europe has recovered much faster than international travel.  IAG share price troubles  It doesn’t look as if international travel will return any time soon. And I think this is the reason why the IAG share price keeps falling. Without these lucrative routes, the group may continue to lose money. That makes it almost impossible to value the shares and suggests the organisation’s problems will continue for the foreseeable future.  Still, when these lucrative routes do return, IAG could achieve windfall profits. Figures indicate there are travellers are willing to spend more on flights and holidays now than they were before the pandemic after being stuck at home for nearly two years. Therefore, when IAG and BA can ramp up transatlantic flights, they may be able to sell more premium services, helping the group’s overall recovery.  The enterprise is also looking to start a low-cost airline, which will fly out of Gatwick. This may help it break into the low-cost European travel market and provide additional diversification.  Despite these initiatives, I’d avoid the IAG share price until we have some more certainty on when transatlantic travel will return. In the meantime, I think the stock will continue to languish.  The post Is this why the IAG share price keeps falling? appeared first on The Motley Fool UK.

  47. Need perspective on PSHZF - Bill Ackman's hedge fund. (29/07/2021 - Reddit Stocks)
    Ackman is currently infamous for the PSTH debacle (which I am unfortunately a current investor in). That said, his fund PSHZF has had pretty spectacular performance in the past few years. Caveat - this was preceded by awful stats for an interim couple years. A big deal is made of how this ticker trades at a significant discount to NAV. Detailed historical info here. Example 1: 2021 - July 27 Nav/share = $49.06 Price/share = $35.50 Discount ~27.6% This is touted as a massive buying opportunity. And the numbers support it! HOWEVER, his fund has always traded at a discount to NAV. Going right back to inception. I'm randomly picking a few dates from the historical info for illustrative purposes but you can follow the link above for more exhaustive stats. 2019 - August 6 Nav/share = $25.33 Price/share = $17.46 Discount ~31.1% or... 2017 - March 31 Nav/share = $17.66 Price/share = $15.2 Discount ~13.9% or... 2015 - January 13 (about 3 months after fund inception) Nav/share = $26.3 Price/share = $23.95 Discount ~8.9% Why has the market never priced his fund "correctly"? And although past performance is not an indication of future performance, what would make the share price suddenly catch up to NAV when it never has before?   submitted by   /u/moopreader [link]   [comments]

  49. Can the Rolls-Royce share price recover in 2021? (20/07/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price has been falling. In fact, the stock is currently trading below 90p. But despite the recent fall, I’m optimistic that the Rolls-Royce share price can recover in 2021. I’d buy the stock on this dip. Here’s why. Why is the Rolls-Royce share price falling? In short, Rolls-Royce has exposure to the civil aviation space. It makes most of its money from selling aircraft engines and servicing them. And so if people are travelling less this will impact the company’s revenues. It’s pretty simple to understand why the share price fell last year. The pandemic caused a lot of uncertainty. But the same is happening again. Up until a month ago, the stock was recovering. But Covid-19 case numbers are on the rise in the UK again, driven by the Delta variant. Hospitalisations and deaths are also increasing, but thankfully not at the same rate. Couple this with restrictions being eased and this has created uncertainty in the markets. In fact, the FTSE 100 index was down over 2% yesterday, which highlights that investors may be thinking that the UK government is opening up the economy too soon. Another lockdown hasn’t been ruled out and it has caused a degree of uneasiness. Of course, this is going to impact travel-related stocks and Rolls-Royce is one of them. It doesn’t help when Health Minister Sajid Javid is having to self isolate after testing positive for Covid-19. At the same time the UK Prime Minister and Chancellor are having to isolate as well. So should I buy? I’m worried that the number of coronavirus cases are rising. And I reckon the number could rise further now that the economy has reopened. Of course, this is going to have a knock-on effect on the Rolls-Royce share price.  But for now I’m encouraged by the fact that the number of hospitalisation and deaths aren’t increasing as fast as case rates. On this basis, I’d buy Rolls-Royce shares on the dips. I think that in the long term, the company can weather the coronavirus storm. It’s worth noting here that the company still expects to turn free cash flow positive at some point in the second half of 2021. It reckons travel will recover and also its cost savings initiatives should start paying off. This has yet to be seen. In fact, the firm expects to announce its interim results on 5 August. So I’ll have a better understanding if the company remains on track. For now, Rolls-Royce has sufficient liquidity and its earnings from its defence sector as well as the money from its disposals to rely on. It also has a strong brand and reputation. Hence I think the stock can recover in 2021. But if things do get worse, it may come to the market and ask for more money. I don’t think this will be viewed positively by investors as it means that times are still tough for the company. This may impact the Rolls-Royce share price. And there’s no guarantee that it will be able to raise the funds. As I said, I feel it has done enough so far and taken the right steps. I think this Covid-19 uncertainty has created a buying opportunity and I’d buy the stock on the dips. I think the stock can recover in 2021.

  50. The Tesco share price looks cheap to me: here’s why I’d buy (17/04/2021 - The Motley Fool UK)
    The Tesco (LSE: TSCO) share price fell after the company published its annual results last week. The market didn’t seem impressed, perhaps because new CEO Ken Murphy didn’t promise any short-term measures to juice up the share price. Personally, I was impressed by the numbers. Tesco’s profits were bound to take a hit last year, due to £892m of extra costs from Covid-19. But my sums suggest that as life returns to normal, the UK’s largest supermarket should stage a strong recovery. It’s all about cash for me For me, what really matters is whether an investment can generate reliable, rising cash returns. I admit that supermarkets, including Tesco, have delivered a mixed performance over the last decade. Tesco’s share price history since 2011 tells the story — it’s not been pretty. However, I believe former chief executive Dave Lewis has transformed Tesco into a focused, disciplined cash-generating machine. Last week’s accounts showed that the retailer generated £1,187m of surplus cash during the year to 27 February. Although that’s 30% less than in 2019/20, this was still enough to fund the dividend (£700m) and a £300m reduction in net debt. Given the events of last year, I think that’s a strong result. I expect Tesco’s cash generation to bounce back quickly this year, providing support for dividend growth. Why has Tesco’s share price fallen this year? I’ve seen a lot of talk about Tesco shares falling this year. Actually, I don’t think they have — at least, not much. What’s really happened is a bit technical, so bear with me. In February, Tesco returned £5bn in cash to its shareholders, through a special dividend of 50.9p per share. This money came from the sale of the group’s Asian business. Taking such a large sum of cash out of the business would have made the stock fall by around 50p (about 20%). To prevent this, the company carried out a share consolidation. What this means is that the number of Tesco shares in issue was reduced. The aim of this consolidation was to cancel out the effect of the special dividend, so the share price would stay the same. Each shareholder received 15 new shares for every 19 old shares they owned (which were cancelled). This was all done automatically. I don’t think Tesco’s share price has fallen much this year. After adjusting for the share consolidation, I see Tesco stock down by just 4% since 1 January. No big drama. Why I’d buy At the time of writing, Tesco’s share price is hovering around 225p. I think that offers decent value, but as with any equity investment, there are some risks. We don’t yet know how shoppers’ habits will change after the pandemic. Tesco’s big stores worked in its favour last year. But before the pandemic, the opposite was true. Many shoppers were switching to more frequent shops in smaller local stores. Competition is also likely to remain tough. Aldi and Lidl lost out last year because they don’t do home delivery. But both discounters are continuing to open new stores. I expect many of them will be located close to Tesco supermarkets. Despite these headwinds, I think Tesco’s size will continue to work in its favour. With the stock offering a forecast yield of 4.8% for the year ahead, I’d put these shares in my trolley today. There’s a ‘double agent’ hiding in the FTSE… we recommend you buy it!
