What’s going on with the Aston Martin share price?

first_img Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 19th June, 2021 | More on: AML Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. Image source: Aston Martin The Aston Martin (LSE: AML) share price has returned 45% over the past 12 months. However, since February, the stock has fallen by nearly 10%, even though the outlook for the economy has improved during this period. So, what has been going on with the stock? Why has it underperformed over the past few months, despite its improving outlook? 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…Aston Martin share price outlookLast year, the luxury car manufacturer came close to the edge. It only survived by raising hundreds of millions of pounds from its investors. Since then, the group’s new management team has been working flat out to stabilise the enterprise. The good news is, it would appear as if these efforts are beginning to yield results. According to the company’s latest trading update, which covered the period to the end of March, revenues in the first quarter of 2021 increased 134% year-on-year. What’s more, the corporation’s overall operating loss declined to just £15.3m, from last year’s £68m. Aston Martin is also making progress on its ambitions to streamline the manufacturing process and reduce costs. Management aims to hit £2bn of revenue by 2024/25 with £500m of adjusted earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA). To meet this goal, the group will have to increase output to 10,000 vehicles, up from 6,000 in 2021. These are ambitious targets. I think the main reason why the Aston Martin share price has been moving sideways recently is that the market does not believe the company can meet these goals.Indeed, the group has repeatedly overpromised and underdelivered in the past. These mistakes have wreaked havoc with its balance sheet and financial position. As a result, Aston Martin has gone bust seven times in its century-long history. Last year, it nearly failed once again. Bull and bear argumentThe way I see it, the Aston Martin share price will do one of two things over the next five years. If the company hits its forecasts, and there’s no reason to suggest that it won’t at this stage, the stock could rise in value as investors buy into the growth story. On the other hand, the company could go back to its old ways. Unfortunately, this may mean it misses its growth targets and may even result in another cash call. Right now, I think it’s impossible to say which course the Aston Martin share price will take. However, I’m encouraged by the group’s executive chairman, Lawrence Stroll, who has a history of successfully turning around luxury brands. Based on Stroll’s reputation alone, I would buy the stock. Still, I would only build a small position in the business due to the speculative nature of this investment.The Aston Martin share price has potential, but considering the company’s history of failure, I’m sceptical about its future.

Moreover, the exchange of his gift creates an inseparable bond between he and his recipient. What a wonderful act of love on behalf of Greg. May God bless him with ‘a greater love’ oneday. Amen. Kim Polhemus and the Rev. Greg Welin.[Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut] The Rev. Greg Welin is home and resting comfortably these days. Admittedly this wouldn’t be newsworthy except for the fact that he donated a kidney last month.A fatal genetic disorderHere’s the backstory: In 2010, Greg was serving as the priest-in-charge of St. John’s in New Milford. There, he met and worked with Kim Polhemus who was serving as senior warden at that time. While outwardly healthy, internally Kim was battling a genetic disease known as Polycystic Kidney Disease, or PKD. The disease is eventually fatal without dialysis or a kidney transplant. Kim has shared that PKD is rampant in her family. Other family members, including her father, have died from it — sometimes after languishing on dialysis for a few years before succumbing.Kim had PKD, as did one of her sisters, Kathy. A third sister, Michelle, did not inherit it.Back in 2010, tests coming back from the doctors at Yale-New Haven Hospital showed the kidney function in both women was diminishing to the point that the sisters would either need a transplant, or dialysis, within a year. After watching what had happened to their father, Kim said that finding donors for both herself and Kathy was paramount. Sister Michelle volunteered to be a donor; she was tested and found to be a good match for either sister. The hospital wanted Michelle to declare which sister she would donate to, but with both in need of a kidney, Michelle refused to commit to either until a second donor was found.Swallowing her pride, Kim wrote a letter that summer and sent it by e-mail to everyone in her contact list, hoping and praying it would help them find a second donor. Someone forwarded it to the local newspaper and a reporter interviewed her, generating more attention and broadcasting the need to an even wider audience. According to the National Kidney Foundation, 3,381 people died in the U.S. last year, waiting for a kidney donor.Just before Thanksgiving, as Kim was on the way back from a long weekend away, her sister Kathy called her with the name of a possible donor who had quietly stepped forward and been tested.It was Greg.He’d heard about it after he returned from his summer vacation, put his name on the list, and was called in that fall for tests. Greg had had a thorough medical workup to check whether he was a match and to make sure he was healthy enough for surgery, and the answer to both was “yes.” Kim had Kathy repeat the name twice before she realized who it was. Both were overwhelmed with gratitude.“When I received the call from the hospital I started crying with joy and kept saying ‘thank you’ over and over,” Kathy said. “I asked them to tell Greg thank you so much.” It brought tears to Kim as well. “I cried in the car. I never saw his name on the list, he never told me,” she said.While Greg’s decision to offer his kidney was certainly a gift and blessing to Kim’s family, it was also a blessing to Greg for a different reason. Years ago his sister had died and he hadn’t been able to do anything to help: this time, it would be different. He could help.Back at St. John’s, Greg had a practice of inviting people to stand up, after the congregation exchanges the peace during the Sunday service, and share something for which they’d like to give thanks. Kim and Greg stood up together and shared all the news with the congregation.The surgeries beginWith a second donor now in place, doctors determined that Michelle’s kidney was a better match for Kim, so Greg would be donating a kidney to Kathy.The next summer, as Kim’s kidney continued to fail, she had what the doctors at Yale-New Haven hospital called a “textbook transplant.” There was no infection or rejection, and Michelle was up and active again in a week.Unexpectedly, Kathy’s kidney function stabilized for a while. Greg, Kim, and Kathy stayed in touch by e-mail occasionally, as they waited. It wasn’t until the fall of 2013 that the doctors decided that it was time. Greg, who by then was the priest-in-charge of St. Paul’s, Woodbury, said that the end of the Epiphany season would be the best time for him. They all agreed on an early February date.Because the original testing had been in 2010, Greg was thoroughly re-tested, passing them all.Both donor, and recipient, along with Kim, Michelle, Kathy’s husband George, and Greg’s wife Amy, arrived about 6:30 a.m. at Yale-New Haven hospital on Feb. 6.Greg was quickly admitted and got to say “hi” to Kathy as she waited.Kathy needed some additional tests when she arrived so her surgery was delayed three hours. Surgery itself was three to four hours for each. Afterwards, each went to post-op care in Yale-New Haven’s Transplantation Center.Greg stayed for two days, going home Feb. 8. While he was in the hospital he saw Kathy a few times, to say hello. Kathy’s recovery was longer as her body has to accept the donated kidney.Kathy stayed until Feb. 11. Kim said that Kathy was home for a week but then was readmitted with a lot of pain. After two days she was released home again. “My sister is now on her way to a normal life with her new healthy kidney,” said Kim.Greg’s recovery was more straightforward. “I moved around a bit gingerly at first,” he said, “and had some trouble bending to get in and out of chairs and the bed.” But other than the tiredness and modest post-surgery pain, he said that he didn’t feel any differently.“I was relieved,” he said. “There were lots of unknowns: What would I feel like? What was the surgical process? How incapacitated would I be? I was relieved that it wasn’t as difficult as I was concerned it might have been. I always felt I was in good hands, though, and very supported. I didn’t feel alone.”Concerns about how the parish would do in his absence were relieved, also, as people were eager to help out. “They’ve been supporting me in a positive way,” he said.Amy, Greg’s wife, who is also the priest-in-charge of St. John’s in Waterbury, said she’s also relieved the surgery went so well and is now behind them. She supported his decision, yet it’s still major surgery so normal fears rose up along with those that she carried from having been widowed earlier in her life. “I’m very proud of Greg for being compassionate and generous,” she said. “And I knew the surgeon was good, but I was terrified. The night before the surgery I had to get out of bed for a while and have a cry.”God must have been listening. An Episcopal chaplain walked in on them when Greg was in pre-op – actually, it was a priest whom Amy had mentored – and offered prayers. Then next day when Greg was in post-op, two other chaplains, both Episcopal clergy whom she knew, stopped by.Greg continues to do well, in all ways. “I’m really happy I was able to do this,” he said. “In the back of my mind I was thinking of my sister, who died. I couldn’t do anything at that time. When the opportunity came up here, I thought I could help a fellow sister on the planet. It’s a great privilege to be able to help in this very tangible way.”“And,” he said, “how often do we get a chance to do something like this?”Kim also reflects on the journey. “It’s been a big circle,” she said. “It changes you on so many levels. First, my own survival, then my sister’s. I have an overwhelming sense of gratitude through all this, for his humbleness and generosity and life-giving spirit.“It’s hard to know how to thank someone sufficiently for saving your sister’s life.” Comments (3) Rector Washington, DC Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

CJ van der Linde headbutt on Sam Cordingly

first_imgMonday Aug 25, 2008 CJ van der Linde headbutt on Sam Cordingly Springbok tighthead prop CJ van der Linde has been cited for a head butt following Australia’s 27-15 victory over South Africa in Durban on Saturday. The result of the hearing is due to be announced later today.Flying into a ruck head first, Wallaby scrumhalf Sam Cordingly received a bullet-like head square in the face, and was probably lucky to have not been badly injured.Watching it again, it’s difficult to comprehend exactly what Van der Linde’s intentions were, as his shoulder, arms, and the rest of his body were nowhere near making contact with his target. Clearing out a player aggressively is one thing, leading with your head is another. He should know better.Van der Linde was lucky to escape being sent off so early in the match, as the incident happened right in front of referee Lyndon Bray, who was probably too shocked to fully comprehend what he just saw. Bray did give a penalty though, which resulted in an easy three points for the visitors.Utter stupidity I’m afraid, and Van der Linde now faces a disciplinary hearing and is sure to be on the sidelines for a good few weeks, ruling out the rest of his Tri Nations, compounding the Springbok’s misery after their poor showing on the weekend.Australian loose forward, and Man of the Match, Rocky Elsom was also cited after being penalised four minutes into the second half when he pulled Springbok captain Victor Matfield down in a line-out.It looked fairly innocuous, but Matfield came down awkwardly and in a bizarre repeat of the John Smit/Brad Thorn incident, has twinged his groin, possibly ruling him out of next weekend’s Ellis Park clash.We’ll await the disciplinary hearing rulings, and if Elsom does actually get suspended, which I doubt will happen, then we’ll get the video up for you to see anyway.As for CJ, expect nothing less than a two week suspension for his moment of madness.————— UPDATE: Van der Lindehas received a one month suspension.He denied targeting the head of Cordingly., but did acknowledge that it was an illegal and dangerous attempt to clear out. Rocky Elsomhas been handed a one week banfor his illegal tackling of Matfield in the lineout. After a video review, the offence was viewed as dangerous, resulting in the suspension.

Tesco names two charities to benefit from plastic bag levy

Trinity River Vision Project intended to improve living conditions in Fort Worth

first_imgDusty Baker TCU Student Filmmakers Association films new movie Dusty Bakerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dusty-baker/ Linkedin Twitter Clayton Kershaw gives his testimony at Ignite printThe Trinity River Vision Authority (TRVA) is in the process of beginning to make changes to the central city area, known as Panther Island.These changes are the first steps of the Trinity River Vision Project, which is overseen by the TRVA.“We are building a mile-and-a-half long, 300-foot wide new body of water,” Public Information Officer for the TRVA Matt Oliver said. Linkedin Local business offers customers their own ‘personal delivery assistant’ Oliver said he expects the project to attract people looking for jobs and raising families, as well as tourists.“The people will come,” Oliver said.

Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Facebook Essentially, the plan is to make an island out of the current Panther Island area, Oliver said. He said the TRVA does not own every property on Panther Island. However, the TRVA has set up the zoning standards and guidelines intended for city developers to follow.“When we built out the Panther Island area, [we were] looking at doubling the size of downtown,” Oliver said. Dusty Bakerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dusty-baker/ ReddIt Oliver said the people of Fort Worth have asked why the city does not have a San Antonio River Walk feel, especially with the proximity of the river to downtown. With that in mind, the TRVA has planned a way for making the same riverfront feel possible in Fort Worth.Oliver said the plans for Panther Island call primarily for construction of new apartment complexes, restaurants and park space. Oliver said this construction is “not meant to be competition to downtown,” but is instead intended to be “a complement” to the area.With the construction, Oliver said jobs have the potential to be more available during both the construction phases of the project, and for the businesses that will be established through the project.“It is no secret when you look at development anywhere you need bodies there,” Oliver said.The Panther Island project is just part of the overall plans to update the Trinity River area. The Trinity River Vision Project, a master plan for the future of the Trinity River, is focusing much of its attention on downtown Fort Worth. The project also presents plans for changes to Gateway Park and the Trinity Trails.After 86 percent of the levees that were tested in 2006 on the Trinity River failed, the TRVA pursued the idea of using the river to the city’s advantage, said Oliver.“This is a flood control project at its core,” said Matt Oliver, Public Information Officer for the TRVA. “The whole reason the project exists is because the city is growing too fast for the infrastructure that we have.” ReddIt Local business offers customers their own ‘personal delivery assistant’ Dusty Bakerhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dusty-baker/ Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Twitterlast_img read more

Turkmenistan

first_img March 31, 2020 Find out more March 12, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Turkmenistan #CollateralFreedom: RSF now unblocking 21 sites in 12 countries TurkmenistanEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information Coronavirus off limits in Turkmenistan December 18, 2020 Find out more Domain name: .tm Population: 5 342 342 Internet-users: 127 000 Average charge for one hour’s connection at a cybercafé: 0,8 to 1,4 US$ Average monthly salary: around 205 US$ Number of imprisoned netizens : 0President Berdymukhamedov has partially broken the diplomatic isolation maintained by his predecessor, the tyrant Niyazov. But the relative economic openness has not translated into more Internet or social freedoms. Scarcely 1% of the population has access to the Web. Information is still oppressively controlled in this post-Stalinian dictatorship.Tentative improvementsIndividual Web connections have only been authorized since 2008. Permission for Internet access was first granted to businesses, then gradually extended to their employees, and finally to the country’s citizens. Pyramid Research, a telecommunications research organization, estimates the number of individual subscriptions as of the end of 2009 at 13,200 and the number of users at 127,000. The American Information Center, French Cultural Center, and International Turkmen Turk University, as well as some Turkmen private schools, are proposing access to the international network.Connection speed is not as slow as it used to be: it now takes only a few minutes to open an e-mail, as opposed to at least a half-hour in 2008. Sending or receiving a photo takes longer, and a video takes 30 minutes.Given this situation, very few Turkmen have acquired an Internet connection in their homes. The cost is prohibitive: a monthly subscription costs USD 5, and an additional USD 0.50 per hour. The average salary is less than USD 200 per month.The incumbent president has kept his promise to allow cyber cafes to open. However, users are required to show an ID and to pay the considerable sum of USD 1 to 2 per hour. Some 15 of them are currently operating in the capital Ashgabat, as well as in other large cities such as Dashoguz. Uniformed policemen are no longer being posted at cyber café entrances to intimidate customers, but the secret service still raids them on occasion. In one raid in 2008, an Internet user accused of consulting prohibited websites was arrested.The “Turkmenet”Apart from a few businesses and foreign embassies that can access the Worldwide Web, the few other Internet users can only access an ultra-censored version of the Internet nicknamed “the Turkmenet,” unless they know how to use censorship circumvention tools.A very strict filtering is now focused on critical publications likely to initially target local users and potential dissidents, mainly for linguistic reasons. Opposition websites such as XpoHo.tm and Gundogar, and regional news sites covering Central Asia, such as ferghana.ru or eurasianet, are blocked. YouTube and LiveJournal were rendered inaccessible at the end of 2009 to prevent Turkmen from blogging or sending videos abroad. Facebook, which is not used very extensively in the country, is not blocked – at least not for the moment.However, Turkmen can visit most generalist NGO Websites. The same scenario applies to Russian and Turkmen media sites that contain no articles critical of the country, notably because of the significant commercial ties between Turkmenistan on one hand, and Russia and Turkey on the other.The government is keeping a close watch on its netizens’ activities. Officials prefer to monitor the surfers’ e-mail accounts (mail.ru, hotmail, etc.), rather than block them, so that they can identify potential dissidents.Western businesses: Vectors of change?The Russian telecommunications company MTS holds an 80% share of the mobile telephone market, which is an increasingly lucrative sector. MTS is now also offering Internet access via GPRS, which may facilitate access for the general population. The terms of use specify that the Internet is filtered.Improving telecommunications infrastructures is not an absolute priority for authorities at the moment, when close to 25% of the population are still living below the poverty level. The international community cannot be counted upon to further the cause of freedom of expression in a country which seems to be an Eldorado for Western businesses enticed by Turkmen gas fields. However, the country’s economic openness could have a positive impact on the Internet penetration rate within the population, as long as the latter does not try to explore subjects deemed too sensitive, or develop any form of civil society. Foreign companies could become vectors of change by calling for a generalization of modern means of communication suitable for commercial and entrepreneurial activities.Links: http://www.rferl.org/featuresarchive/country/turkmenistan.html: Turkmen service of Radio Free Europe (English) http://www.eurasianet.org: news website on central Asia (English and Russian) http://turkmenistan.neweurasia.net/: collaborative website on Turkmenistan.
