What’s going on with the BP share price?

first_img We think that when a company’s CEO owns 12.1% of its stock, that’s usually a very good sign.But with this opportunity it could get even better.Still only 55 years old, he sees the chance for a new “Uber-style” technology.And this is not a tiny tech startup full of empty promises.This extraordinary company is already one of the largest in its industry.Last year, revenues hit a whopping £1.132 billion.The board recently announced a 10% dividend hike.And it has been a superb Motley Fool income pick for 9 years running!But even so, we believe there could still be huge upside ahead.Clearly, this company’s founder and CEO agrees. Learn how you can grab this ‘Top Income Stock’ Report now Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 29th May, 2021 | More on: BP Rupert Hargreaves has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Image source: Getty Images What is going on with the BP (LSE: BP) share price? That’s a question I’ve been considering based on the stock’s recent performance. Over the past 12 months, shares in the company have returned -4%, excluding dividends. However, over the same time frame, the price of oil has returned more than 200%.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…As one of the world’s largest oil producers, BP will undoubtedly benefit from being able to sell its output at higher prices. Unfortunately, the company’s current stock price does not seem to reflect this improved outlook. The question is why? Is this an opportunity I can take advantage of to earn a profit?BP share price valuationBP is clearly set to benefit from higher oil prices.According to City analysts, the group’s earnings per share could grow as much as 29% this year on the back of higher oil prices.And if the price of oil remains at current levels, analysts believe the company’s earnings per share could grow a further 13% in 2022. While these are just estimates at this stage and could be subject to change, I think the figures show its potential. BP’s profits should grow as the global economy moves on from the pandemic and demand for oil returns to pre-crisis levels. Based on these numbers, the BP share price is dealing at a forward P/E of 9.7 for 2021, potentially falling to 8.5 for 2022. That appears to me to be incredibly cheap, mainly because the rest of the market is trading at a P/E of around 15. As well as this valuation, the stock also has the potential to offer a dividend yield of 4.8%, according to analysts.Risks and challengesWhile the BP share price does look cheap compared to its potential, it’s unlikely to be plain sailing for the group over the next few years. The pandemic is not over yet. Another outbreak could set the global economic recovery back months or years. There’s also a chance the oil market’s most prominent producers, which cut production last year to stabilise the market, could increase output due to higher prices. This would hurt other producers like BP as the price of oil would likely fall. As these risks continue to hang over the BP share price, I can see why investors have been avoiding the business. There’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding the outlook for the enterprise, and trying to understand where the company could be five years from now is incredibly challenging. As such, the investment is unlikely to be suitable for risk-averse investors.Still, I would buy shares in the oil company today as a recovery play, despite these risks.Yes, BP is facing an uncertain future, but the stock’s current valuation suggests that the shares are undervalued if the business can return to growth in the next two or three years.  What’s going on with the BP share price?center_img I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners.

Daily News journalists denied accreditation

first_img to go further The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Zimbabwean court must free imprisoned journalist who is unwell Organisation The Supreme Court declared The Daily News illegal on 11 September 2003, because the daily had not registered with the Media and Information Commission as required under the press law. The newspaper had refused to register because it contested the constitutionality of the AIPPA. Police acted on the judgment on 12 September, shutting down the daily and closing its offices. The High Court on 22 January gave the newspaper permission to reappear, but on 6 February, following the Supreme Court ruling that upheld the constitutionality of the press law, the Daily News decided to temporarily halt publication. Its journalists had already put in their accreditation requests to the media commission. Reports The government Media and Information Commission on 10 February refused to accredit the journalists as long as the newspaper was not officially authorised to appear. The decision came within days of the Supreme Court ruling upholding the constitutionality of a particularly harsh press law. Reporters Without Borders expressed dismay at the sheer relentlessness of a government campaign against the independent media, as journalists from the independent Daily News were refused accreditation. February 11, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Daily News journalists denied accreditation The anti-freedom legislative framework ultimately blocked any form of free expression, it added, pointing out that the law also banned foreign journalists from working permanently in Zimbabwe.

Noonan fears further pain for taxpayers’

first_img Previous articleThreat to future of St Paul’s Nursing HomeNext articleWillie in Wonderland admin House prices could lose half their value, says Goodbody’s THE Government has forced NAMA to use out-of-date, inaccurate information to  overvalue bank loans, according to Fine Gael’s Michael Noonan. Goodbody’s prediction that house prices will end up falling by 50% before levelling  out, he said, spells yet more  trouble  for  NAMA and further pain for taxpayers,  “The  prediction that house prices will lose half their value is desperate news for struggling homeowners.  This  outcome would send thousands more tumbling into negative equity.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The  consequences for  NAMA and the taxpayer are equally worrying. NAMA’s so-called  ‘business  plan’ is based on the assumption that property prices will  rise  from  the  levels  of  last November – the reference period for determining  the  current market values of the banks’ toxic developer loans that  NAMA  is  buying.“ But  according  to  Goodbody’s,  house prices have continued to plummet since then and are set to fall by a further 16% in the immediate future”.It was bad enough, continued deputy Noonan, that the taxpayer was being forced to pay far more than current  market  values  for  toxic  developer loans in a tumbling property market on the basis of their ‘long-term economic value.“But making matters even worse is the fact that NAMA is forced by the Government legislation to estimate  this  long-term value using outdated and inaccurate information.“Only last week  the  ESRI  predicted  that  the  Irish  labour force and population would  shrink  in the coming years because of recession-related emigration. This will mean lower demand for property. But in estimating the long-term value  of the property-related assets that it is buying, NAMA is prevented from using economic and demographic projections from beyond last January.  At  that  time, the CSO was still predicting a growing population for Ireland in the coming years”.There were, he continued, certain accountancy rules which require banks to  state  their  asset  value  on the date of audit, and prevent them from predicting a declining market, but that no such constraints applied to NAMA. “The  chances  of NAMA recovering taxpayers’ money, he concluded, seemed slimmer by the day.

Belltable:Connect invites applications for Translating Live to Online Workshops this Autumn

first_imgBelltable:Connect is inviting applications for three week-long sessions for emerging/ midcareer/ established theatre/ performance artists living and working locally.Marketa Dowling Programme Manager of the Belltable said “As we all know, the current pandemic has been detrimental to the performing arts. If strangers cannot share an art experience with each other and the performers, the sector has lost its raison d’être. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Many artists are now turning to online to engage with their audiences. These Belltable:Connect workshops give an opportunity to artists across their careers to explore how to communicate with an online audience, how to connect with them as active participants instead of casual observers. “Translating Live to Online is funded by Creative Ireland and Limerick City and County Council through Creative Ireland Made in Limerick Grant 2020.”What is Translating Live to Online?The workshop is designed to develop audience engagement and shared experience. Not solely in the live context, the workshop explores how “live” translates to “online”. Can the lived and shared experiences of an actor and audience exist when presented through online platforms?How can theatre artists become effective storytellers while not becoming filmmakers. Many artists are moving activities online, hoping to find an audience for a new, ‘not-quite-live/ not-quite-video-or-film’ artform.Practitioners must therefore examine what this new discipline might be and how it connects with audiences as active participants in the performance, as opposed to casual observers.Simon Thompson facilitates three independent week-long sessions for five emerging/ midcareer/ established Artists, in Belltable Hub.Artists will explore Complicité and Kinetic Empathy through play and failure, improvisations and physical interventions. Particular focus will be on the corporeal architecture of the body.Through embodiment of sensation and emotion, the Artists learn about their own body, become aware of how it moves through space and how much non-verbal information it imparts to the observer.Simon said “The current world crisis has affected everyone to varying degrees and as a creative person the lack of human interaction and the excitement of sharing ideas has indeed been one of those challenges. “However thanks to the Belltable. I’m shaking myself down and heading into the studio with 3 different groups of local artists, and we’re going to explore ideas surrounding audiences and live performance. “Furthermore we will consider the implications and very exciting possibilities, which transitioning to online may present. These workshops will allow local artists to challenge, develop and explore new possibilities and opportunities for creating, audience focused and engaging theatre for the future.”The three weeks in question will run in Belltable Hub:week 1 – emerging artists – 28 September – 3 Octoberweek 2 – midcareer artists – 5-10 Octoberweek 3 – established artists – 12-17 OctoberWho is Translating Live to Online for? Professional theatre/ performance artists/makers  at different stages of their careers: actors, dancers, playwrights, performance devisers, designers, etcApplicants must have theatre/ performance as their main career and have professional experience, or studied theatre/ performance at third level.These workshops are for practitioners living, working and substantially operating in Limerick city and county.To see if you are eligible please read more on the criteria here – https://bit.ly/3gYV4H8How to apply for Translating Live to Online: Please find the application form on the website – click this link https://bit.ly/3gYV4H8. The application form should be emailed to [email protected] Application deadline is Friday, 11th September at 12 noon.  RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous articleIrish Distillers launches Jameson Engineering Graduate ProgrammeNext articleLittle Mollie needs help to stop injuring herself Meghann Scully WhatsApp Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Advertisement Print Twitter Facebook Linkedincenter_img Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener LifestyleArtsLimerickNewsBelltable:Connect invites applications for Translating Live to Online Workshops this AutumnBy Meghann Scully – September 5, 2020 96 TAGSartsBelltable:ConnectKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Posttheatre Email WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads last_img read more

Mapping Key DNA Markers for the Autoflower Trait to Accelerate Breeding Elite Hemp and…

first_img By Digital AIM Web Support – March 4, 2021 TAGS  Local News Mapping Key DNA Markers for the Autoflower Trait to Accelerate Breeding Elite Hemp and Cannabis Varieties NESS ZIONA, Israel & HOLLISTER, Calif–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 10, 2021– NRGene (TASE: NRGN), a leading genomics AI company and Kayagene, a pioneer in hemp and cannabis breeding, are pleased to announce the completion of a milestone in their strategic research collaboration. This ongoing collaboration was initiated over 2 years ago, beginning with genomic assembly of several of Kayagene’s cannabis and hemp breeding lines, using NRGene’s DenovoMAGIC™ technology. Now, the companies have successfully mapped several key genes including the autoflowering gene, which is a highly desired trait and of great interest for the hemp and cannabis industries. NRGene estimates, that following the development of DNA markers for the autoflowering trait, it is now possible to integrate this trait into any hemp and cannabis variety within 12 to 18 months. Cannabis and hemp plants are typically photoperiod dependent, meaning the plants start flowering only when daylength becomes shorter and approaches 12 hours. However, cannabis and hemp plants harboring the day-neutral or “autoflower” gene, flower automatically when they are 3-4 weeks old, no matter the daylength. Thus, varieties with this trait can be grown year-round in greenhouse or fields without the necessity to manipulate daylength, which is cost-efficient for multiple flower or seed harvests. “Our efficient genomic capabilities enabled the rapid and accurate mapping of the autoflower trait and the identification of linked DNA markers,” Said DR. Gil Ronen, NRGene’s CEO & Co-Founder. “Using these markers, Kayagene can now reduce, by 50%, the time required to incorporate the autoflower trait into their proprietary elite cannabis and hemp varieties.” Trait mapping and marker-assisted breeding are vital in a competitive market because it accelerates the time to market for unique and improved varieties harboring those key traits. The use of molecular markers enables rapid and accurate selections and reduces the presence of deleterious genes introduced by traditional breeding methods. “Kayagene is employing these advanced techniques using NRGene’s genomics tools and our vast experience with breeding, to develop improved elite hemp and cannabis varieties. Our goal is to accelerate the industry by developing highly competitive, vigorous, and reliable genetics through the application of genomic tools and analytics”, says Dr. Christopher Hohn, Kayagene’s Director of R&D.

Mr McCartney was also found guilty of murdering DuPont managing director Jeffrey Agate in the city a week later.Mr McCartney spent 17 years in prison. During that time he became the IRA’s officer commanding in the Maze and spent 53 days on hunger strike, while Mr MacDermott spent 15 years in jail.Both men were cleared in February 2007 after judges said there was doubt about the safety of their guilty verdicts. After a previous compensation application and subsequent judicial review both ruled against the men,  they appealed to the Supreme Court last year.The Lord Chief Justice reserved judgement on their appeal, and in what could prove to be a landmark case, he’ll give his ruling today.
