Its load factor – a key measure that determines how full planes are – increased to 85.7 per cent from 84.8 per cent, bringing the twelve-month rolling figure to 87.2 per cent. Last month, the no-frills airline famed for its bright orange logo, said full-year profit had soared almost threefold, as improving demand and cheaper fuel bolstered the bottom line. Recently-installed chief executive Carolyn McCall also said the group would begin paying a dividend in 2012. However, the group has been hampered by disagreements over the pace of expansion in future years. Founder and largest shareholder Stelios Haji-Ioannou wants to put the brakes on expansion by capping aircraft numbers at 200. Show Comments ▼ read more

Rupert Hargreaves | Wednesday, 8th July, 2020 | More on: AV Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool.center_img Aviva (LSE: AV) shares are one of the FTSE 100’s top income stocks. However, over the past few years, the value of the shares has fallen as the company has struggled for direction.But this could be about to change. With a new CEO with the helm, Aviva shares may be able to generate high total returns for investors in the years ahead.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…Aviva shares on offerLast week the insurance group announced that it had appointed Amanda Blanc as its new chief executive. This is widely expected to lead to a wave of change at the insurance organisation. The incoming CEO has experience at Axa’s UK business and Zurich’s European operation. Analysts believe that she will shake up the company, which has been in the pipeline for some time.The group has a big business in the UK but also operations in Europe and Asia. Management has been trying to decide what to do with these international businesses for some time. Aviva’s brand is more influential in the UK than anywhere else, so it may make sense for the company to concentrate on growth in its home market.Splitting its insurance and pensions business divisions may also be positive for Aviva shares. Doing so could free up capital and allow the company to pursue growth in other markets.Aviva shares have languished over the past few years due to the company’s lack of direction. This could be about to change with the new CEO in the hot seat. That may mean that now could be a good time for long-term investors to buy into this FTSE 100 dividend champion.Margin of safetySince the beginning of 2020, Aviva shares have slumped by 33%. This does not reflect the company’s underlying fundamental performance. It’s latest trading update showed a strong performance across all business divisions, even though the coronavirus crisis did have an impact.As such, it looks as if the stock offers a margin of safety at current levels. The share price decline seems to be overstating the negative impact on the business. Indeed, based on current analyst estimates, the stock is trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of just 5.7.There is also a good chance the company will reinstate its dividend later this year. Aviva shares are known for their income potential, but the group suspended dividend payouts earlier this year at the request of regulators.The restoration of the payout would be highly favourable for the share price. For the 2018 financial year, Aviva shares offered a dividend payout of 30p each. At the current share price, that suggests the stock could provide a dividend yield of 11% when the payout is restored.As such, buying Aviva shares in a portfolio of stocks today may lead to high total returns over the long term for investors.

Russia vows to defend Belarus’s sovereignty

first_imgBelarusian President Alexander Lukashenko met with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sept. 14 in Sochi, Russia, expecting mutual support to respond to NATO threats and ongoing protests against Lukashenko’s reelection.According to the Belarusian government website, “The leaders of the countries discussed the state and prospects of development of bilateral cooperation in various spheres, the theme of allied relations, considered international problems and the situation in the region, the issues of joint response to emerging challenges” (president.gov.by, Sept. 14).The two heads of state have had a rocky relationship over the years, but the recent meeting indicates common interest in a time of crisis. Russia promised in mid-August to provide the Belarusian government with military assistance, following the deployment of NATO tanks and planes. (CNBC, Aug. 16) At the same time, Putin stated he wants the current struggle to be handled internally, if at all possible. Imperialist powers in the West are sympathetic toward the pro-free market, neoliberal opposition, which refuses to accept the election results of Aug. 9, when Lukashenko won roughly 80% of the popular vote.  Oppositionists often display the white-red-white flag, which was first used by German occupiers from the Imperial Army during World War I, then by Nazi invaders in World War II and later by capitalist counterrevolutionaries after the collapse of the Soviet Union. The bourgeois media has been busy peddling a demonization campaign against Lukashenko, calling him the “last European dictator,” while blindly praising leaders of the hostile opposition. What is important for revolutionaries and anti-imperialists to consider is Belarus is the only former Soviet republic able to prohibit corporate investors from stealing its national resources. When imperialists hypocritically label Lukashenko a “dictator,” it has nothing to do with concern for “human rights” and has everything to do with his ability to successfully avoid mass privatization of resources and industry.Why imperialists hate LukashenkoAlexander Lukashenko was a member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union throughout the 1980s. In the mid-1980s, he was appointed director of the Gorodets state farm in the Shkloŭ district of what was then the Byelorussian Soviet Socialist Republic. In 1991, Lukashenko was the only member of Belarus’s parliament to vote against the treaty that dissolved the Soviet Union. (Reuters, Dec. 20, 2010)Currently, Lukashenko is an “independent,” who does not currently belong to any political party, something extremely uncommon for any political head of state. Nevertheless, he has strong support from the Communist Party of Belarus.Lukashenko first ran for president of Belarus in 1994 as a proponent of socialism and supporter of the former USSR. Workers and farmers throughout the country embraced his campaign, and he won the election. The overthrow of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was an enormous setback for the global working class and oppressed peoples. Most of the former Soviet republics that border Belarus — such as Ukraine, Lithuania and Latvia — became colonies of the imperialist West and joined the NATO military alliance, as did Poland. Belarus, on the contrary, maintained public ownership of most of its industry.  Belarus is the only former Soviet republic that still has collective farms and factories.Because Belarus has resisted a complete counterrevolution, many people believe it is the likely target of another U.S.-NATO sponsored “Maidan coup,” modeled after the 2014 coup in Ukraine. Washington and European NATO powers then helped lead an overthrow of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, even using neo-Nazi terrorists. Maidan Square in Kiev, Ukraine’s capital, was the site of anti-government protests in 2014. Behind the coup was a fascist alliance of Ukrainian anti-communist nationalists and white supremacists, who favored an alliance with the imperialist European Union and the United States rather than the Eurasian Economic Union, to which Belarus and Russia both belong.The Communist Party of Ukraine has expressed solidarity with the Belarusian people and their decision to reelect Lukashenko, writing the following on its website on Sept. 2: “Belarus has followed a unique path of sovereign development for the post-Soviet states, based on the fullest possible use of the existing production potential and relying on the Russian market. President Lukashenko intuitively chose the optimal path, avoiding the extremes of shock therapy, Eastern despotism and colonization by Western capital. He managed to avoid economic catastrophe, systemic corruption, mass capital export and ruin of the country. Thanks to this course, Belarus became the most successful of the former Soviet republics: Real GDP of Belarus for the period 1990-2014 doubled; in Russia — it increased by 25%, in Ukraine it fell by 35% (according to calculations of the World Bank).” The U.S. and the West endorse Lukashenko’s oppositionThe Western and especially the U.S.-based corporate media has tried to portray the opposition protesters — who are backed by the pro-imperialist National Endowment for Democracy — as “progressive.” They don’t emphasize the opposition leaders’ pro-capitalist orientation.When Western imperialists conduct a demonization campaign against a government they consider an enemy, they often use “human rights” as justification.  U.S. and West European corporate media hypocritically used “women’s rights” as a pretext to criminally bomb Yugoslavia in 1999 and to occupy Afghanistan since 2001. This pretext is repeated today to vilify Lukashenko, since some of the opposition leaders are women. This campaign omits the following truths: Women in the U.S. are not guaranteed maternity leave, but in Belarus, women are paid 70 days prior to giving birth and 56 days afterwards. Childcare leave can be taken for years following birth. (Reuters, March 6, 2019) Maternity leave and childcare in Belarus are just a couple of the many examples of Soviet-era practices that still exist in that country.It’s in the United States where access to abortion is under constant attack and women are paid less than men for the same work. Atrocities, like the hysterectomies forced on immigrant women in detention camps, can occur.Belarus has its fair share of contradictions. But despite suffering a pro-capitalist counterrevolution briefly in the early 1990s, from which it never fully recovered, Belarus has the most centrally planned economy in all the former Soviet republics. Imperialist hands off Belarus! FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The Week Ahead: The Fed Addresses Interest Rates, Inflation

first_img April 26, 2019 1,210 Views Tagged with: Federal Reserve FOMC Interest rates Jerome Powell About Author: Seth Welborn On Wednesday, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) Chairman Jerome Powell and the FOMC will hold the Committee’s next meeting and press conference. During March’s meeting, the FOMC announced that the Fed does not intend to raise rates this year, keeping interest rates steady at a range of 2.25 and 2.5 percent. Powell noted solid job gains and low unemployment rates, as well as little change in payroll employment in February.The FOMC also noted that inflation has declined in the past year, citing lower energy prices, though inflation for items other than food and energy has remained at around two percent. In a statement. The FOMC stated that a rate hike may still be possible.“The Committee continues to view sustained expansion of economic activity, strong labor market conditions, and inflation near the Committee’s symmetric 2% objective as the most likely outcomes,” said the FOMC in a statement. “In light of global economic and financial developments and muted inflation pressures, the Committee will be patient as it determines what future adjustments to the target range for the federal funds rate may be appropriate to support these outcomes.”According to LendingTree Chief Economist Tendayi Kapfidze, the Fed’s outlook may be an overreaction resulting from December’s market volatility and the recent government shutdown.“In our interpretation, the Fed may be overreacting to market volatility that occurred in December and distortions to economic activity and data from the government shutdown,” Kapfidze stated. “While many measures of economic growth have slowed, sentiment data which is more timely has rebounded from those declines. There are also seasonal distortions that have been occurring in the first quarter, with the economy often accelerating in the second and third quarter.”Here’s what else is happening in the Week Ahead:Conference Board Consumer confidence index—Tuesday, 10 a.m. ESTNAR Pending Home Sales Index—Tuesday, 10 a.m. ESTSenate Banking Committee Hearing—Tuesday, 10 a.m. ESTFannie Mae First Quarter 2019 Financial Results—Wednesday, 8 a.m. ESTCensus Bureau Construction Spending Report—Wednesday, 10 a.m. EST Previous: FHFA Checks in on Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Next: Freddie Mac, Appraisal Institute Offer Manufactured Housing Valuation Training  Print This Post Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Such a declaration has to be accepted by the Chief Minister under Section 14 of the Act. On acceptance by the Chief Minister, the Minister has to resign from the office as per Section 14(2)(i) of the Act.”The action of the 2nd respondent(Jaleel) was actuated in discharge of his function as a Minster by personal interest to favour his own second cousin. It amounted to favouritism and nepotism and lack of integrity in his capacity as a Minister.The conduct of the 2nd respondent also violated the oath of office he had taken as a Minister to discharge his duties as a Minister “without fear or favour, affection or ill-will””, the order passed by a bench of Justices Cyriac Joseph(former Supreme Court judge) and Harun-Ul-Rashid(former High Court judge) held.The matter related to the appointment of Jaleel’s cousin KT Adeeb as General Manager in the Kerala State Minorities Development Finance Corporation Limited.  The Lok Ayukta found that Jaleel took a decision as a Minister to change the qualifications for the post to add “B.Tech with PGDBA” to make his relative eligible. This decision was without any proposal or suggestion from the Corporation. But for this change of qualification, Adeeb would not have been eligible to apply for the post.The Lok Ayukta held that it amounted to an abuse of the Minister’s position. It ordered that the report be submitted before the Chief Minister for taking necessary action as per Section 14 of the Kerala Lok Ayukta Act. Click Hear To Download/Read Judgment Next Storylast_img read more
