Share investing is a classic play on current and future risk versus potential rewards. At what point does FTSE 100 bank Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) finally become cheap enough to warrant a punt?The Black Horse Bank lost its pull as go-to share for dividend investors this month. Adhering to the Prudential Regulatory Authority it axed the final payout for 2019, and vowed to scrap paying dividends this year or engage in 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…Still, Lloyds may still hold some appeal for value investors. Its forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 9 times still makes it one of the cheapest stocks on the Footsie.Mortgage mayhemDoes this represent a brilliant dip-buying opportunity? Or is it a trap waiting to trip up glass-half-full investors? I can’t help but feel it’s a case of the latter. I certainly won’t be buying the FTSE 100 share given the prospect of a sharp and stretched out economic recession.The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) suggests that the UK economy will shrink by 35% in 2020 because of the Covid-19 crisis. Naturally, this scenario would cause havoc for all of Lloyds’ operations as both individuals and corporate customers struggle. Here I will talk about the possible consequences for the company’s mortgage business.Lloyds is by far the country’s biggest mortgage lender with a market share north of 20%. Last year two-thirds of all loans and advances to its customers were in the form of mortgages. It stands to reason that it faces significant trouble as the UK housing market stalls.Housing crisisIt’s not just the immediate impact that government advice to close down home sales is having. Lloyds faces a tough time even when Covid-19 infection rates slow and quarantine measures are gradually lifted. In the subsequent recession unemployment rates are expected to spiral out of control. The OBR says that jobless numbers could soar by an extra 2m as the UK economy tanks.Illustrating the possible impact on major lenders like Lloyds, estate agency Knight Frank estimates that banks and building societies could issue 350,000 fewer mortgages for house purchase in 2020 than they otherwise would have done.It’s not just in the income column where Lloyds threatens to take a hit, however. It also faces an escalation in the number of bad loans on its books as Britons likely struggle to make ends meet in larger numbers.I’d steer clear of LloydsThe picture is bleak for Lloyds and getting more so. It’s why City analysts have been downgrading their earnings forecasts for 2020. They now expect Lloyds to endure a 9% drop in annual profits but investors should be braced for more cuts to estimates as the coronavirus crisis drags on.The bank’s share price has dropped 62% over the past five years. It’s unlikely to rebound any time soon as weak economic conditions prolong an environment of profits-crushing low interest rates. This is a share I’d avoid at all costs, despite that low price.

Billy Vunipola ruled out of the Lions tour through injury

first_imgThe 34-cap Saracens and England No 8 has paid for the unrelenting nature of season in what is a significant blow to Warren Gatland’s touring Lions LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS TAGS: Highlight The British & Irish Lions have been rocked by the news that Saracens and England No 8 Billy Vunipola has been ruled out of the Series in New Zealand with a shoulder injury. James Haskell, a former charge of Warren Gatland’s at Wasps, has been called up in his place.There are suggestions that Vunipola had been managing the injury but that a bang during the hugely physical battle against the Exeter Chiefs on the weekend meant that further medical attention was the only way forward for the outstanding 34-cap No 8, who has only a week previously picked up a Man of the Match award for his part in Saracens reclaiming the Champions Cup.Running repairs: Vunipola was seen having treatment on his shoulder against Exeter ChiefsIt is a blow to the solar plexes for the Lions but it’s not a knockout blow. There are still three players in the squad who can play No 8. Taulupe Faletau, who has 66-caps and has been in imperious form for Bath in recent weeks is favourite to wear the Test shirt in New Zealand, while the rambunctious CJ Stander, the Munster No 8 who has been playing at blindside for his country with great effect, and of course, Ross Moriarty, a blindside who can happily play at No 8, and kept the returning Faletau out of the Wales side during the Six Nations.Vunipola was favourite to pack down at the back of the scrum, and his 20st bulk, soft hands and ability to get over the gainline would have been a key attacking weapon for the Lions. A gregarious character, he talked of his desperation to be part of the Lions squad after witnessing his brother Mako play his part in a winning Lions Series in Australia in 2013. Stepping up: James Haskell has been called up in Billy Vunipola’s placeIt is now for Gatland and his coaches to rethink their game-plan, even though the All Blacks, who themselves have problems in the back-row with Jerome Kaino being nursed back from a knee-injury and Kieran Read facing a race against time to be fit for the first Test on June 25 after breaking his thumb playing for the Canterbury Crusaders in Japan last month.As for Haskell, despite suggestions Jamie Heaslip, the two-time Lion, or John Barclay, who has been in outstanding form for Scotland and the Scarlets merited a call-up, it is a late and welcome reprieve for a player who voiced his disappointment at not being given the call, and stated that he could never be viewed as a great player, without representing the Lions. Recently turned 32, Haskell has had a injury plagued season and has not hit the heights of 12 months ago when he was England’s Player of the Series in Australia. However, the Wasp, is an upbeat character, and while he may not trouble the matchday 23, his well-worn experience – he played provincial rugby with the Highlanders for a season – ability to play anywhere across the backrow and larger-than-life character will be a boon on what will be an emotionally draining tour.last_img read more

Further discussion and angles on Owen Franks’ finger in eye of Wallaby

first_imgThursday Sep 1, 2016 Further discussion and angles on Owen Franks’ finger in eye of Wallaby Here are a few more viewpoints, and another angle, on the Owen Franks eye-gouging incident this past weekend. In the above video we get to see things from a New Zealand perspective, then below is a discussion from the Fox Sports crew in Australia.Kane Douglas, the Wallaby who was on the receiving end of it, has since told the Courier Mail in Australia that he didn’t feel it amounted to an eye-gouge.“I didn’t think of it like that. It was an All Black trying to stop me driving through the maul, arms everywhere and everything happening in a few seconds. I’ve got no issue at all but obviously you want to be protecting the eyes of players.“I probably didn’t realise how bad it looked until after the game (when watching replays). My eyes were fine and it all happened so quickly, I was on to the next thing in the game,” Douglas said.Yes, thankfully his eye was not injured but that does not mean that Franks didn’t infringe on the very clear laws set in place by World Rugby. Countless players have already been banned, usually for around 8-12 weeks, for incidents that appear far less clear cut.A precedent was set a while back, and the likes of Chris Ashton (10 week ban) and even Richie Rees (12 week ban) have had to sit out due to their fingers being way to close to the ‘eye or eye area’ of another player. With those same standards seeminly in place, it’s baffling that Franks was not in trouble for this one. Consistency is all anyone wants, and of course to protect the eyes of players.So conspiracy theories aside, it seems that the powers that be really dropped the ball on this one.And although they have overuled an independant citing decision before, World Rugby are not able to get involved in a SANZAAR case, as per the rules of competition.GET OVER IT, BRIANAlso, below is another piece from The Breakdown, in which the guys tell Brian O’Driscoll – who was very outspoken on the incident – to get over it, making slight reference to his issues with New Zealand following the 2005 spear he received on the British & Irish Lions tour.Let us know your thoughts!credit: skysportnz/thetightfive/rugby.com.auADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Indiana Farm Bureau Delegates Set 2019 Policy Positions

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter By Eric Pfeiffer – Aug 28, 2018 Previous articleBOAH and IN Pork to Hold Meeting About African Swine Fever PreparednessNext articleConnor Sees More Negatives than Positives for Ag Coming from Washington Eric Pfeiffer SHARE Indiana Farm Bureau Delegates Set 2019 Policy Positions Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana Farm Bureau Delegates Set 2019 Policy Positions Indiana Farm Bureau Delegates Set 2019 Policy Positions262 Indiana Farm Bureau delegates from all 92 counties met over the weekend to set policy for the upcoming year. There were no significant policy shifts that came out of the meeting, but there were a couple of issues that sparked a lot of discussion.The Indiana General Assembly legalized the use of CBD oil during their last session. Justin Schneider, Director of State Government Relations for Indiana Farm Bureau, says that they recognized industrial hemp and CBD oil are not the same as marijuana.“We’re now to the point where we’re really pushing for the legalization of hemp production, 0.3% THC content or less, because there is a market for it. There’s a market for the fiber, there’s a market for the oil, there’s a market for food products, for automotive parts, for other uses that that are still really developing in this country because we haven’t had industrial hemp production since World War 2.”Schneider says there is language in the Senate farm bill that Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell included to allow states to authorize industrial hemp production.“Currently, Indiana has a pilot project. Purdue can do research. We do have a farmer this year that’s doing research under license with Purdue. So, he’s grown industrial hemp and they’re going to process it and see what how the product comes out. But they can’t market the product under the current restrictions, so I do hope that the language gets in the farm bill. We’re supportive of that.”Wind and solar siting, a controversial issue around the state, was another point of discussion. Director of Public Policy Katrina Hall told HAT, “We had a really long discussion about how much outside control or parameters there should be put on those things. In the end our members really, it took a while to get there, came back to the point that we supported local control on those issues.”Hall added that their members are very tuned in and involved in local government, which is why they reaffirmed their position on numerous issues to advocate for local control.The delegates voted to add language regarding their support of providing more funding to bring high-speed internet access to rural Indiana. Delegates adopted language that supports the voluntary merger of townships as long as there is a clear plan for the process. Members support the concept that a plan should be made available to the public before it goes to a referendum and should include detailed information about the services provided before and after the merger as well as the property tax implications.During the session, delegates also voted on members who would represent INFB at the 2019 American Farm Bureau Federation Convention. The AFBF Convention will be held in New Orleans in January. The INFB delegates chosen will discuss policy positions for the national organization with representatives from all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Four county Farm Bureau presidents were elected as delegates for the AFBF Convention:Bob Bishop, Kosciusko CountyJoe Rude, Fulton CountyKerra Armstrong, Blackford CountyMarcia Monroe, Jackson CountyOver the next few weeks, the INFB board of directors will determine the priority policies for the 2019 state legislative session. Federal priorities are set at the AFBF level based on input from all state Farm Bureaus. Now, the INFB public policy team will work with regional managers, district directors and county Farm Bureau members to hone in on top priorities to set the stage for the organizations efforts at the Statehouse and in Washington, D.C.Information from Indiana Farm Bureau’s Public Relations Office contributed to this report.last_img read more
