The BT share price hasn’t been this low since 2009. Is it time to buy?

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Stuart Blair | Tuesday, 25th August, 2020 | More on: BT-A The BT share price hasn’t been this low since 2009. Is it time to buy? Image source: Getty Images. Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Enter Your Email Address I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. At its current price of around 100p, the BT (LSE: BT-A) share price has not been this low since the Financial Crisis of 2009. In that case, it was able to recover strongly over the next few years. As a result, many believe that it will be able to achieve a similar feat this time round. But with a huge number of problems associated with the company, is it still too risky to buy?The problems with BTThe BT share price has been falling for years now due to limited growth, a huge amount of debt on the balance sheet and a large pension deficit. For example, the company has over £18bn of debt, despite the fact that its current market capitalisation is just £10bn. This is a very worrying sign, and evidently the company will have pay off debts over the next few years. This may limit the amount of money the company can return to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…In fact, the group has already cancelled the dividend, and there is no chance of it returning until 2022. Although this is probably the correct decision long term, as it will allow the firm to invest in improved broadband and a modernisation programme, it does show that the current problems with BT abound.The BT share price may also be weighed down by the recent government decision to get businesses to remove all Huawei equipment from their infrastructure over the next few years. Consequently, BT will have to incur extra costs over that timeframe. There is also likely to be a two-year delay in a wider 5G rollout.Is the BT share price undervalued?Despite these problems, the BT share price does look very cheap at the moment. For example, over the weekend, Sky reported that BT is preparing to defend itself from a takeover approach from industry rivals and buyout firms. This is because it has that market cap of just £10bn, despite the fact that many analysts believe that its subsidiary Openreach is worth twice this sum. This could indicate that the BT share price is currently too low.But while this may tempt investors, as shown by its 8% rise yesterday, it should also be taken with a pinch of salt. Firstly, there’s no guarantee that it will be taken over, especially due to the number of problems that BT faces. Secondly, BT’s role in national infrastructure networks means that any takeover would have to have political approval. That means takeover talk is just speculation for now and could come to nothing in the end.Would I buy BT shares?Although I do believe BT shares are currently underpriced, I’m still not buying. BT operates in an extremely competitive market, and has faced significant struggles over the past few years. With Covid-19 adding to these problems, I think it will continue to struggle for years to come. As a result, I believe there are plenty of better options out there.

CYTA is located in the heart of Hipódromo Condesa, one of Mexico City’s most vibrant and shifting neighborhoods. The buildings’ design solution insistently looks for a careful integration with the natural and urban environment The façade is composed of balconies and terraces with plants–in pots that are integrated to the structure, and Irving wrought-iron screen, and sober framings. The façade coexists with its surroundings and the trees that face the street. The vegetation of the city intertwines with that sprouting from the building creating a harmonious experience with the outside, both for the user and the building. One of the neighboring buildings was classified as a heritage site; this led us to shape our volume to achieve a striking gesture of integration.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Rafael GamoConsidering that the side face will never be obstructed, we saw the opportunity to integrate our frontal and side façade with the neighboring one in the upper levels, interweaving them as if it was a seam. The building and apartments are designed to provide an intimate haven within CYTA amidst all that dynamism and energy. The building has 25 units, all of which receive natural light and ventilation. Most of them are comprised of one story that includes balconies and there are some distributed in two stories. The units on the ground level have small patios. At the top of CYTA, there is a common roof garden that has amazing views of the neighborhood and the city. Vertical circulations are concentrated in the core of the building. We took advantage of this space to bathe the halls and common areas with light and ventilation and we carefully designed a steel stairway formed from continuous frames and circular elements that fade in color as they rise, getting clearer as they meet the light that comes through the upper dome.Save this picture!© Rafael GamoSave this picture!DetailSave this picture!© Rafael GamoIn this way, the color gradient gives its own personality to every level of the building. The finishes and building materials are basic, pure, honest, and, in good measure, local; seeking to give the project an everlasting aspect that withstands the test of time and that it identifies with its setting. CYTA embeds itself into the city offering an urban lifestyle and a coherent design environment–from the small details to the building’s total design concept, resulting in a project with added value for its users and the city.Save this picture!© Benjamín PliegoProject gallerySee allShow lessStudio 1334 / debartolo architectsSelected ProjectsTost Coffee Shop / Gabriel Castro MOBIOSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:La Condesa, Mexico City, CDMX, MexicoLocation to be used only as a reference.

Legacy income sees slight drop in year to June 2017

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis19 Legacy income dropped slightly by 1.1% in the year to June 2017 but will continue to rise over the next five years albeit more slowly than in previous years, according to Legacy Foresight’s latest Legacy Bulletin.In the 12 months to June 2017 Legacy Foresight’s 83 Legacy Monitor Consortium members received £1.41billion in legacy income and 54,500 bequests: a 1.1% fall in total income compared to the same period last year.Consortium legacy income grew strongly in the first half of 2016 – climbing from £1.3billion to £1.4billion. However, since last summer, incomes have flattened off and now fallen slightly. Legacy Foresight attributes the decrease to ‘flagging house prices and jittery stock markets’, which it says appear to have affected average residual values. Its figures show that in the year to June 2017 average residual bequest values were £57,000: a fall of 3.7% on the record high of £59,100 in the year to June 2016 (the period leading up to the Brexit referendum).With commentators expecting the British economy to slow significantly over the next two to three years while the finer details of the Brexit deal are thrashed out, residual values are likely to be further dampened Legacy Foresight states.However, climbing death rates continue to boost legacy numbers, which rose by 3.2% in the past 12 months. These additional bequests will pay out over the next 18 months, helping to sustain overall legacy incomes, says Legacy Foresight. Its central market forecast suggests that legacy incomes will keep growing but more slowly than in recent years, rising by 2.7% p.a. over the next five years.  101 total views,  1 views today Tagged with: legacies Research / statistics Melanie May | 14 August 2017 | News Advertisementcenter_img Legacy income sees slight drop in year to June 2017 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

It needs to be resisted as well as eliminated”, the Guild expressed.The FIR, registered under Section 269 and 501 of Indian Penal Code and SC/ST Act, has been lodged at the Ramnagar Police Station by Mala Devi, a resident of Varanasi’s Domari village, who has complained that Sharma misrepresented her statements and made false claims in her report.She claims that she is a sanitation worker at the Varanasi city municipality through outsourcing and she did not face any distress during the lockdown, and had access to food. Recalling her interview with Sharma, Mala Devi said, “She asked me about the lockdown; I told her neither me or anyone in my family faced any problems.” In the FIR thus, Mala Devi says, “By saying that me and children went hungry, Supriya Sharma has made fun of my poverty and my caste. She has hurt my sentiments and my reputation in the society.”The Scroll.in has however claimed that Mala Devi’s comments were reported “accurately” and that the FIR is an attempt to “intimidate and silence” independent journalism on conditions of vulnerable groups during the Covid-19 lockdown. “Scroll.in interviewed Mala in Domari village, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, on June 5, 2020. Her statements have accurately been reported in the article titled, ‘In Varanasi village adopted by Prime Minister Modi, people went hungry during the lockdown.’ Scroll.in stands by the article, which has been reported from the Prime Minister’s constituency. This FIR is an attempt to intimidate and silence independent journalism, reporting on conditions of vulnerable groups during the Covid-19 lockdown.”, Scroll Editorial said in a statement published in the website.The Guild issued the statement taking note of the editorial stand of the Scroll.”The Guild respects all laws of the land as also the right of Mala Devi to defend herself against any acts of injustice. But, it also finds the flagrant misuse of such laws unjustifiable and reprehensible. Worse, the increasing frequency of such misuse of laws by the authorities is tantamount to shooting the messenger and destroying a key pillar of India’s democracy”, the Guild said.Editors Guild of India expresses concern over FIR by Varanasi Police against Scroll journalist Supriya Sharma.Terms it ‘overreaction’ which will ‘undermine freedom of media’.

Bombay HC’s ‘Skin To Skin’ Judgment: NCPCR Asks Maharashtra Government To File ‘Urgent Appeal’ Against The Judgment

The Judgment by the Bombay High Court (Nagpur Bench), however, held that such an act would in fact amount to ‘molestation’ under the Indian Penal Code [Section 354 IPC (outraging a woman’s modesty)]. A single bench of Justice Pushpa Ganediwala made this observation last week while modifying the order of the Sessions Court which held a 39-year-old man guilty of sexual assault for groping a 12- year- old- girl and removing her salwar. [NOTE: The High Court held the man guilty under sections 342 and 354 of the IPC while acquitting him under section 8 of the POCSO Act.] In this backdrop, the Letter written by NCPCR Chairperson Priyank Kanoongo and addressed to the Maharashtra Chief Secretary notes that that if the prosecution had made the submissions as per the spirit of POCSO Act, then accused not have been acquitted from the serious offence against the Minor. The Letter further reads, “The remark ‘skin to skin’ with sexual intention without penetration’ also need to be reviewed and the State should take note of this as it seems to be derogatory to the Minor Victim”. The NCPCR chief has, in his letter, also underlined that it seems that the identity of the victim has been disclosed and the commission is of the view that the state should take note of this and initiate necessary steps. Requesting the State Government to file an urgent appeal against the Judgment, the letter concludes by saying, “The Commission being the monitoring body under Section 44 of the POCSO Act 2012 requests to you to take necessary steps in the matter and file and urgent appeal against the Judgment…” The Maharashtra Chief Secretary has also been requested to provide details (to the NCPCR) of the Minor (maintaining strict confidentiality) so that the commission can provide help such as legal aid etc in the best interest of the child .Click Here To Download LetterRead LetterNext Storylast_img read more

I taught about a third of the parents of the students who received awards today. That is an indication that parents realize the importance of the arts in education.”Smith said art is a part of the creative process and, even if students don’t pursue art-related careers, the creative process is a valuable asset in any profession.Smith said the 2018 and 2019 student art shows at the JCA were both billed as “Art the Size of a Dollar Bill.”“Being small artworks, it was easier for students to enter more than one category,” Smith said. “And, also, being small, we had more space to exhibit more artwork.”The first, second and third place award winners in each category in each of the four grade divisions were:Grades K-3 Color Drawing: first, Reagan Chandler, PLAS;
