The Royal Mail share price is surging. Here’s what I’d do now

first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Enter Your Email Address Image source: GLS Harshil Patel | Thursday, 27th May, 2021 | More on: RMG The Royal Mail (LSE:RMG) share price is surging towards a record high. What’s caused the rapid ascent and should I consider it for my Stocks and Shares ISA? Let’s see what’s going on.The Royal Mail share price is flyingOver the past year, the Royal Mail share price climbed by over 230%. That’s a phenomenal gain, in my opinion. It has been a transformational year for this 500-year-old organisation. The pandemic significantly changed customer behaviour in 2020. People sent and received many more parcels than ever before.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…Parcels now represent 72% of group revenue. This is an increase from 63% a year earlier. The trend of increasing e-commerce and parcels business was already established but it was accelerated by the pandemic.Royal Mail recently reported reassuring full-year results. Its parcels revenue grew by 39%, partially offsetting a decline in letters of 13%. Its operating costs also increased, reflecting the need for extra staff and distancing requirements.Overall, profits increased. This could already be reflected in the Royal Mail share price. So, the question is what happens now?Royal Mail outlookLooking ahead, Royal Mail intends to accelerate its programme of change. Several innovations and initiatives have already started or are being trialled. For instance, Sunday deliveries started. It also initiated a parcel collect and drop off service. Offering additional convenience to busy customers should prove popular, in my opinion.The company is also trialling ‘instant pain relief’ same-day prescriptions, delivery by drone, and several other innovative services.Business growth often comes from proactive management. A range of trials and initiatives could be exactly the kind of thing Royal Mail needs to become a more modern and powerful force in 2021 and beyond. If it can implement even some of these ideas, I reckon the Royal Mail share price could have considerably more upside.Risks and points to noteDespite the positive results and reassuring programme of change, there are some points to consider. The outlook for 2021-22 contains a number of uncertainties. Due to this, Royal Mail seems to be finding it difficult to provide specific guidance.It’s difficult to forecast customer behaviour after pandemic restrictions are lifted. There are also uncertainties surrounding virus variants and their impact on any future restrictions.In addition, Royal Mail must become more efficient to compete effectively. The Royal Mail share price could be at risk if the company fails to execute cost-management initiatives while delivering high-quality services.Will it deliver?Overall, I like what I see. This FTSE 250 stock offers reasonable profit growth, a 3.4% dividend yield, and looks reasonably priced. Royal Mail has an historic competitive advantage of trust at the doorstep. I reckon the various cost-cutting ideas and innovative additions to the offering could deliver further earnings growth.And despite the strength of the Royal Mail share price this year, I think there could be much further to go. I don’t currently own the shares, but I would be tempted to add some to my Stocks and Shares ISA on any near-term share price weakness.

Irish Sevens Star Wins ITV’s Love Island

first_imgBecause of this speed he found a home on the wing or sometimes at full-back, however he went through a significant injury in 2015 which put his career in jeopardy. He fell off a bicycle and lacerated his Achilles tendon which left a rather impressive scar.Despite this Munster extended his academy place but eventually moved on after he failed to secure a spot for the senior team.He then turned his attention to Sevens rugby and found a spot in the Irish national side. He previously made appearances at the 2018 Rugby World Cup and he also helped Ireland qualify for the World Rugby Sevens Series too. Ireland Rugby World Cup Fixtures, Squad, Group, Guide Expand Sevens rugby player Greg O’Shea and beautician Amber Gill won the television show last night. Irish Sevens Star Wins ITV’s Love IslandProfessional rugby player Greg O’Shea, alongside beautician Amber Gill, won the fifth series of ITV’s Love Island last night.In a controversial end to the show, the pair narrowly beat out two others and shocked the bookmakers to collect the cash prize.The Irish Sevens player will probably have a couple of months at least to enjoy himself with the World Rugby Sevens Series traditionally starting in October/November. It is believed he will return to pre-season training around August.He has also made it clear he wants to help Ireland qualify for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo next year. O’Shea first started playing rugby when he was seven years old and he quickly showed his talent by getting noticed by Munster’s Academy. It obviously helped his cause that he was a very good sprinter when at the age of 16 he competed for Ireland at the 2011 European Youth Olympics 100 meters. He finished sixth.

Capitalism sets the world on fire

first_imgAs of Sept. 13, at least 100 wildfires are raging in ten U.S. states. The situation could not be more dire.  On Sept. 8 in western Oregon, forestry workers with the Idanha-Detroit Rural Fire Protection District and evacuees faced hurricane-force winds, coupled with infrastructure failures and temperatures hot enough to melt vehicles. Fires can easily move at 60 miles per hour, preceded miles ahead by ember storms. Deadly fires at Detroit Lake in Oregon.The Idanha-Detroit RFPD Facebook site described the scene: “Due to Highway 22 being blocked on both ends of the district by boulders and downed burning trees, we called in the National Guard for an air evacuation, but they were unable to land due to high winds and heavy smoke.“We had approximately 70 civilians staged at Mongold [Detroit Lake State Park, Ore.]. We were preparing to move people to the docks for a ‘last stand,’ but the Forest Service was able to find an evacuation route up to Government Camp using forest roads.” ( Idanha-Detroit evacuees survived, days later Oregon stands prepared for a “mass fatality incident.” In Phoenix, Ore., entire city blocks burned to the ground.How could this have happened in the United States, supposedly a world-leading economy? Because the U.S. ruling class prioritizes racialized capitalism over human life.Climate change — the bill comes dueMuch of the wealth and power in the U.S. accumulated as burning fossil fuels warmed the planet and caused anthropogenic climate change. As annual average temperatures rose, especially in the Pacific Northwest, forests grew drier. Weather patterns and ecosystems were disrupted, and fragile biomes like the temperate forests were primed for conflagration.Land misuse has added to the impact of climate change, especially in Oregon where vineyards, livestock and marijuana farms have depleted the water table and desiccated the lands now burning.Lack of rain, depleted groundwater, increased lightning and strained resources for emergency management all compound to threaten the lives of the working class and the oppressed.40% of fire responders are incarcerated workers Wildfires are incinerating communities, and forestry workers are stretched thin. Yet, we see nothing like the militarized mobilizations let loose against protests for Black lives. Instead, like Hurricane Katrina or the COVID-19 pandemic, the response is to profiteer, blame and deny, rather than address the problem. Evacuees stay in temporary shelters, as vacant homes and workplaces burn. Workers receive no financial support. In California, 4,000 incarcerated workers paid only a dollar an hour make up 40% of the fire responders. These imprisoned workers risk their lives in prison slavery conditions, including battling widespread COVID-19. Air quality verges on unsurvivable, especially for people with respiratory disabilities, and as ever U.S. health care is racist and unaccessible.In some cases, a nonresponse would be better than the actions of local law enforcement. In Butte County, Calif., the sheriff declined to issue an evacuation order until it was too late to warn many residents. Clearly, law enforcement is not an institution for public safety. ( Idanha-Detroit evacuees were sent to Clackamas County, where deputies, rather than responding, blamed “antifa” for starting fires. ( The U.S. failed state can respond to crises only by provoking violence against those most directly harmed by its own failures.Land knowledge and land theftWhile the land now burning is under the U.S. flag, it was not historically so. After the U.S. forcibly seized its current territorial holdings as part of a centuries-long, settler colonial campaign of genocide against Indigenous peoples and cultures, it forcibly ended the application of proven and effective Indigenous techniques for fire management.The Wildland Fire Program of the Karuk Tribe states: “Prescribed burning is an ancestral cultural practice that has taken place for thousands of years to manage the landscape, to stimulate the production of resources for humans and for animals, to prevent catastrophic wildfires, and to provide for species abundance and diversity. The euro-american invasion has since disrupted cultural fire practices with (among other injustices) fire suppression policies.” ( United States Forest Service (USFS) entered into partnership with the Karuk Tribe in 2013 and reported on the results in 2018. In the executive summary of this program, forestry workers came to much the same radical solution as Indigenous activists: land restoration. Their report said that “in the long-run, tribes should be included in comprehensive, long-term land management plans [and] identify lands where there are tribal rights and interests in need of restoration.”Notably the Red Salmon fire, on lands stolen from and now partially managed by the Karuk Tribe, has been vastly more contained than the nearby August Complex fires in Northern California.Centering Indigenous knowledge and expertise, while prioritizing human lives over profits, would immediately address many of the worst problems. Food, shelter and relief payments to displaced evacuees, full funding of forestry workers and Indigenous land restoration — just a stroke of a pen for those in power — would save thousands of lives.calvin deutschbein is a member of the Durham Branch of Workers World Party. In 2013, the neighborhood where they grew up on the slopes of Cheyenne Mountain, Colo., was burned down in an uncontrolled wildfire. deutschbein is a former forest ranger of the Eagle-Holy Cross Ranger District of White River National Forest in eastern Colorado. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Provincial newspaper reporter denounces plot to kill him

The risk of reprisals is very high for journalists who dare to denounce the activities of organized crime.“An investigation must be carried out quickly with the aim of identifying this ‘Michel’ and his henchmen. And the authorities must immediately guarantee Fernández’s safety. Cases of this kind result only too often in situations of impunity.”According to Fernández, who has written a great deal about the wars between drug gangs in his part of the country, his reporting is the reason for this threat to his life. He has criticized the slowness of the police to take action but says he will not be intimidated.“We are filing a complaint in order to show the criminals that they cannot act as they please in San Francisco de Macorís,” he said.Photo: center_img Organisation Dominican Republic: News presenter and producer gunned down in mid-broadcast Receive email alerts News February 15, 2017 Find out more News Dominican RepublicAmericas News September 22, 2014 Find out morelast_img read more
