The Cineworld share price is tumbling today. Could it be a contrarian FTSE buy?

Are you on the lookout for UK growth stocks?If so, get this FREE no-strings report now.While it’s available: you’ll discover what we think is a top growth stock for the decade ahead.And the performance of this company really is stunning.In 2019, it returned £150million to shareholders through buybacks and dividends.We believe its financial position is about as solid as anything we’ve seen.Since 2016, annual revenues increased 31%In March 2020, one of its senior directors LOADED UP on 25,000 shares – a position worth £90,259Operating cash flow is up 47%. (Even its operating margins are rising every year!)Quite simply, we believe it’s a fantastic Foolish growth pick.What’s more, it deserves your attention today.So please don’t wait another moment. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares It’s been more than a year since I went to a Cineworld (LSE:CINE) cinema. Today saw preliminary full-year results released by the FTSE 250 firm. I wasn’t expecting much but I was surprised to see the Cineworld share price lose nearly 10% today so far, as I write. Is there an opportunity here for the VERY long term?Cineworld share price woesI could buy shares in Cineworld for 181p per share in mid-February 2020. By the end of March, shares were trading for a paltry 36p per share. This is a mammoth 80% drop.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…Since that low point, the Cineworld share price has fluctuated with restrictions easing over the summer and then going back into lockdown. The news of Covid-19 vaccinations signalled a potential lifeline for the beleaguered FTSE 250 firm too. Less than two weeks ago, shares were trading for 122p per share but it seems recent preliminary results have hit the share price hard once more.Preliminary resultsCineworld has been forced to close it sites from mid-March last year. Naturally, results and performance will reflect this, but I think they are worse than first anticipated. Revenue fell by over 80% to just over $850m. A mammoth loss of £3bn for 2020 will have played a part in the Cineworld share price falling sharply today. In 2019 it reported a pre-tax profit of over $210m. The FTSE 250 firm did attempt to reduce costs and preserve cash, however. Despite these measures, it was forced to seek funding to keep the lights on. It brought in over $800m in additional liquidity. Furthermore, it today announced an additional $231m from investors to see it through 2021.To provide a snapshot of just how much the last 12 months or so has affected Cineworld, it reported that there were just over 50m ticket admissions over this results period. The previous year, there were 275m.A FTSE contrarian investment or one to avoid?The Cineworld share price has been battered and bruised over the past 12 months. But with its sharp decline today, I’m trying to think about post-Covid-19 life and trading for CINE and whether I could pick up a great reopening contrarian buy.I do believe Cineworld will experience pent up demand. Many people are itching to enjoy the silver screen experience once more. In addition to this, there are lots of blockbuster movies that have been delayed and will come out once normality resumes so there could be a surge in performance at that time. Furthermore, Cineworld reported theatrical industry in other parts of the world has performed well since reopening. These include China, Japan, and Australia.Overall, I am not confident enough in the Cineworld share price or its overall investment viability right now. I do acknowledge its dip today was slightly more than expected, which presents a potential opportunity. Cinemas may also have a battle on their hands to regain customers from streaming giants who have gained so much more traction in the pandemic period.I don’t view Cineworld as a FTSE contrarian buy. In fact, if I am looking to invest in something a bit different, here is one stock I prefer and think will benefit from reopening.

Research underway to find what makes a successful fundraiser

first_imgTheoretical basisIn her research bid summary, Dr Breeze points to “studies of workplaces in which employees’ personalities are integral to their performance, a phenomena that has grown with the decline of manufacturing and the rise of jobs involving contact with the public”. Referring to Arlie Hochschild’s concept of ‘the managed heart’ concerning the strains involved in doing ‘people work’, Breeze suggests that her argument that” personalities are commoditised in the service of capitalism does not translate easily to situations where people are pursuing a nonprofit motive or working as volunteers”.Yet fundraisers do of course undertake ’emotional labour’. So Breeze is looking to develop existing these and other theoretical ideas in a new realm.[message_box title=”Take part in the survey” color=”blue”]To take part in the survey visit Dr Beth Breeze’s online questionnaire.[/message_box] Howard Lake | 30 April 2014 | News Do successful fundraisers share similar social skills and personality traits? What personal skills combine to make a successful fundraiser? Dr Beth Breeze from the Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy at the University of Kent is undertaking research to find out.Academic research on the charitable sector has so far focused a great deal on donors, their views and attitudes on different types of fundraising, how much they give, and their expectations of future charitable giving. It has also focused on the strategies and technical skills involved in fundraising.But very little research has focused on the qualities of fundraisers themselves. Dr Breeze’s research is therefore investigating their behaviours, characteristics and attitudes – the ‘soft’ rather than technical skills.The Formation of FundraisersHer three-year research project has now developed to include launching a survey of 1,000 UK fundraisers. It also involves interviewing professional fundraisers and volunteers who have raised significant sums, together with major donors who have given £100,000 or more.The research, The Formation of Fundraisers: the role of personal skills in asking for money, is funded by a Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship.Dr Breeze estimates that there are about 31,000 paid fundraisers in the UK, who together help raise about £10 billion for charities.Why no previous research?Dr Breeze attributes the lack of research into fundraisers themselves to charities lack the resources and a preference to fund ‘applied’ research, such as testing direct mail for the benefit of their own organisation.Such research is important, in her view, because “it is not possible to understand the economics of charitable giving without accounting for the role of fundraising”. She cites the example of dire predictions of dips in voluntary income during recessions which fail to materialise. This could well be the result of “the energy and drive of fundraisers”.

Groundbreaking victory for Wash Supply workers

first_imgBy Mahoma López, LWC, and Yuriana Sanchez, LWC LeaderOn Jan. 29, the Laundromat Wash Supply workers scored a groundbreaking victory against their employer. For many years, the employees of Wash Supply have faced precarious working conditions at the workplace. The workers believed that the best tool they had to change the workplace was organizing and forming an independent labor association.In New York City and other parts of the country, the retail laundromat industry is plagued by precarious working conditions. Laundromat industry employees have suffered from abuses by employers and the negligence of governmental institutions to investigate and enforce the existing laws that protect workers.One of the typical examples of exploitation in this industry is wage theft. The report “Employers steal billions from workers’ paychecks each year,” by David Cooper and Teresa Kroeger, states that wage theft is “the failure to pay workers the full wages to which they are legally entitled.” According to Cooper and Kroeger, “wage theft can take many forms, including but not limited to minimum wage violations, overtime violations, meal break violations, pay-stub, and illegal deductions or misclassification.”The report findings demonstrate the precarious conditions of low-wage workers in the 10 most populous states where workers are most likely to be paid less than the minimum wage — in Florida 7.3%, Ohio 5.5% and New York 5.0%. Those workers suffering minimum wage violations have been underpaid an average of $64 per week, which means that a year-round worker is losing $3,300 per year and receiving only $10,500 in annual wages, according to Cooper and Kroeger.One in five workers underpaidIn 2018, the Laundry Workers Center launched a “Report on working conditions in the retail laundromat industry” that examines the working conditions of retail laundromat workers in NYC. A finding of the report was that “one in five workers were paid $10.00 per hour or less: a likely violation of New York’s minimum wage requirements.” Another finding was that “more than half of workers were subjected to harassing conduct in the workplace, ranging from racial slurs and insults to threats and intimidation.” In 2019, Wash Supply employees approached the Laundry Workers Center. Our goal at the beginning was to communicate that our employer was stealing our wages. LWC conducted an investigation and found indeed that our wages were stolen. At that time, Mahoma López, the lead organizer and co-executive director, explained to us that the organization does not focus just on the violation of wage theft. As co-director and lead organizer of the Laundry Workers Center, it is critical to articulate the organization’s vision, which is to empower low-wage workers and train them to organize to make real changes in the workplace and their communities. We believe that those who suffer exploitation in their workplaces must learn how to organize and educate on issues beyond their workplace in order to change the dynamic of exploitation. Thus, Wash Supply employees enrolled in the LWC leadership institute learn the power they have when they learn their rights.Through the leadership institute, the workers began to build political consciousness and imagine their power as working class. When they realized what power they had, they decided that the best way to ensure workplace changes was to organize and form a worker’s association.Critical for workers to become organizersAs the lead organizer of the campaign and co-executive director of the Laundry Workers Center, Lopez understood that it was critical for the workers to become organizers by learning a critical set of organizing skills. My personal experience as a leader of the Hot and Crusty Campaign in 2012 helped me understand that leaders need to become the strategists, the communicators, the tacticians, the agitators and political educators of their campaigns. Thus, when Wash Supply workers participated in the leadership institute, they learned how to develop strategies, tactics and how to run a campaign in their community and workplace.Furthermore, they learned how essential it is to develop a profound analysis of workers’ political and economic conditions in the U.S. and worldwide. Nine years ago, on Jan. 21, 2012, those education sessions helped to liberate us from the exploitation we suffered in Hot and Crusty; and on Jan. 29, the workers of Wash Supply accomplished the same goals.Many workers are hungry for justice and ready to learn to organize in their communities and workplace, but they are not getting the support they need from community and labor organizations. As organizers, we need to spend more time recruiting, training workers, and building power, or the option is more exploitation and inequality.In synthesis, the workers’ victory in Wash Supply represents the workers’ will to win better working conditions and end exploitation in the workplace. It represents the necessity of building political consciousness in the working class to realize its power and move from oppression to liberation. Finally, the workers have built a network of solidarity with different partners of the social justice movement such as the Solidarity Center, Workers Assembly Against Racism, the Internationalist Group, and other community and labor organizations that empower them to believe that winning better working conditions was, is and will be possible. The management continues retaliating against us for organizing, but we will never stop fighting for our rights.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalist granted provisional release

He was charged with publishing an article, in December 2003,in which a woman was accused of adultery. The decision was not only indirect opposition to United Nations recommendations condemning thepunishment of press infractions with prison terms, but was particularlydisturbing coming from a country that has long been a model example of freeexpression in Western Africa.

State, county lag behind in Census

So, when in doubt— count! And children count!”The 2020 Census makes dollars and “sense” for every individual in every hamlet, every town and every city. So, Boswell said it’s up to the individual cities and towns to make their citizens aware of what could be down the bumpy road for them if they fail to be counted.

That’s what is riding on the 2020 Census. So, the leadership in each town or city needs to take the responsibility of letting their citizens know what is at stake. If you think COVID-19 is devastating, imagine what a low 2020 Census count would mean for all of us.”Boswell said the 2020 Census is the most critical this country has participated in because of what is stake and just as critical for Alabama.Alabama must exceed its 2010 Census count to keep its current number of federal representative and ensure that it is provided the more than $13 billion in census-derived funding at stake and for it to continue to be considered for new and expanding economic development opportunities moving forward.“It will be much tougher on cities and counties if their sales tax dollars are not multiplied on the federal level,” Boswell said. He pointed to the dollars that have come to businesses and cities during COVID-19 that are providing much needed assistance to businesses and workers during the pandemic. Boswell said, too often, the representatives in Washington are regarded as out of sight out of mind.“But, think about the CARES Act and the assistance to individual workers and small business that are keeping this country moving during this unprecedented time.”A low census will cost on an individual level because taxes will have to be raised to help local counties and municipalities offset the loss of revenue, therefore, those federal dollars are most important.Boswell said the 2020 Census is most importance to the City of Brundidge, which will be classified as a township rather than as a city if its population, falls below the 2,000 mark. The 2010 Census had Brundidge at 2,076.As a township, Brundidge could be restricted to certain matching grant programs and the schools could be impacted.

ICE releases hundreds rounded up in Mississippi as children left behind

first_imgBlakeDavidTaylor/iStock(WASHINGTON) — Several hundred individuals arrested during an immigration roundup across Mississippi on Wednesday, leaving their children without parents in some cases, have been released, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman said Thursday.Young children were seen crying on local news video about being separated from their mothers and fathers.Children of adults detained in the raids were taken to local elementary schools until they could be reunited with extended family members.ICE Southern Region Communications Director Bryan Cox defended the agency’s handling of the matter on Thursday, saying as arrests were made, those detained were allowed to make arrangements to have their children picked up and that schools were notified.Immigration advocates condemned the raids, and focused on the children of those set to be deported.“This is horrifying — and it’s happening right here, right now,” the American Civil Liberties Union wrote on Twitterin the wake of the arrests. “America can’t be the country we want to live in so long as the president’s mass deportation machine is terrorizing our communities and ripping apart families.Cox said on Thursday that none of those detained remain at a processing center, explaining in an email to ABC News that all have “either been released or custody determination made that they will be held and moved to an ICE detention facility.”Roughly 680 undocumented immigrants were arrested in Mississippi on Wednesday, marking what officials called the largest single-state immigration enforcement in history.The operations took place at seven work sites — all agricultural processing plants — in six different cities, and involved more than 600 agents, according to officials.Cox said Thursday that more than 300 were released from custody, including approximately 270 released from the processing center, and according to ICE, were “returned to the place where they were originally encountered.”When the individuals who were arrested arrived at the processing center, they were advised to inform ICE officials if they had any children who needed to be picked up, Cox said.“In order to make it possible for arrestees to contact other family members and address childcare issues, HSI (Homeland Security Investigations) procured cell phones that are available at the processing site for use by arrestees to make arrangements for the care of their children or other dependents,” Cox said.“During processing each alien is asked if they have any dependents that need to be cared for. Any arrestee who identifies a child care issue, and is not being criminally arrested or is subject to mandatory detention, will be expeditiously processed and returned to the point of apprehension so that they can get to their child or other dependents.”Cox said that when the operation ended, two HSI officials contacted schools in the area to notify them that there were operations taking place and to provide contact information if the schools found that there were any children whose parents did not pick them up.According to an ICE news release: “As part of HSI procedures pursuant to this operation, if HSI encountered two alien parents with minor children at home, HSI released one of the parents on humanitarian grounds and returned that individual to the place from which they were arrested. HSI similarly released any single alien parent with minor children a home on humanitarian grounds and physically returned that person to the place where he or she was originally detained. Based on these procedures, it is believed that all children were with at least one of their parents as of last night.”Also, there were approximately 30 people at the plants where the raids took place who were not transported due to humanitarian factors. This could include things like pregnancy, nursing mothers, Cox said, but added that it’s case-by-case.At a Wednesday news conference, officials said they began preparing for the raids over a year ago.“The arrests today were the results of a year-long criminal investigation and the arrests and warrants that were executed today are just another step in that investigation,” ICE acting Director Matthew Albence said, saying each case would be handled individually.“Our arrests of these individuals is the front end of the process, we will process them, we will place them in front of an immigration judge where they will make their case as to whether or not they have a lawful right to remain in the country. The judge ultimately makes the decision as to whether or not these individuals can stay. If the judge orders them removed, then we will execute those removal orders on the back end of the process,” Albence said.Three of the seven raids took place at Peco Foods facilities in Mississippi.“We can confirm the Department of Homeland Security was on-site at three of our facilities in Mississippi this morning — Bay Springs, Canton and Sebastopol,” the company said in a statement. “We are fully cooperating with the authorities in their investigation and are navigating a potential disruption of operations.”When asked if there was concern over carrying out these raids as communities continue to mourn over two mass shootings that took place over the weekend, including in El Paso — a border town, Mike Hurst, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi, said that although what happened was “horrific,” the immigration enforcement operations had been planned for several months prior to the incidents that occurred last weekend.“This operation began over a year ago, you don’t bring over 650 special agents from around the country into the Southern District of Mississippi in a matter of three days without preparation for months and months and months. So while the tragedies on Saturday and this weekend around the country are horrific, this operation had been planned way before that and we intended to carry it out,” he said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
