The price closed Monday around the 34p mark and has ranged from that level to just over 37p so far this year. After the slump during the stock market crash in March last year, the share price hasn’t managed to get back to previous levels around 55p. Had I bought pre-crisis, I’d be holding the stock at an (unrealised) loss. With no dividends being paid, a kick higher is needed for the Lloyds share price in order to start momentum again. So what could be some of these drivers and would I buy at its current low level?Value and dividendsAccording to my figures, the market capitalisation of Lloyds at the moment is around £24.6bn. The enterprise value (an alternative way of measuring the net worth of a business) stands at £34.8bn. So if the share price rallied so that the market capitalisation equalled the enterprise value, this could be seen as a fairer price. What would this price be? Well, with 70.84bn shares in the market, this would put the Lloyds share price at 49p.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…Also, it’s worth me thinking about the potential of a return of dividend payments. For companies in the financial services sector, dividends are a key way to keep shareholders happy. Last year the regulators strongly advised banks to not pay a dividend due to the pandemic. The pre-Covid dividend of 3.2p per share is therefore the last metric I have from Lloyds of potential payout numbers. The share price fell around 45% last year. So the same payout per share would represent a much larger dividend yield for me. This is because the 3.2p represents a larger amount relative to the share price at 35p than it did at 55p. It would provide a dividend yield over 8.5%. If that was the case, those who look for income stocks might pile in, which I think could drive the share price higher. But of course, there’s no guarantee that the payout would match the last one and I think it’s unlikely to do so.Brexit impacting the Lloyds share priceThe UK has finally left the EU and so far we haven’t seen an apocalyptic crash to the economy. I could argue that this is because Covid-19 had already done the damage! Should the economy suffer no more teething problems from the regulatory changes from Brexit, this could support a Lloyds share price move back towards 50p. This is because Lloyds is seen as a proxy for UK-based businesses. It also has the largest retail consumer base out of the other banks. As a result, it will see the financial results driven by how confident and successful UK consumers are. But being a proxy for UK-based businesses is also a risk to my overall argument. If the UK economy struggles due to Covid-19 and Brexit, the Lloyds share price is unlikely to gain traction. A dividend is unlikely to materialise. Added bad loan exposure could reduce the enterprise value, meaning the fair value of the stock comes lower as well.Yet on balance, I’m optimistic going forward regarding the Lloyds share price. I think it really might reach 49p and that fits in which my investing goals so it’s back on my watchlist.
It is time to put an end to defending players clattering scorers on the ground, argues Cian Tracey of the Irish Independent Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. “It should be a case of: adjust your body position or face the consequences” This particular incident again went unpunished and what made it even more perplexing was that the referee, his two assistants and the TMO held up the game for several minutes to have a look at Peter O’Mahony needlessly dropping his shoulder on a Scarlets player who lay helplessly on the ground.The Munster captain was correctly shown a second yellow card, but having watched several replays of the whole thing, it beggared belief that none of the officials saw it necessary to pick up on Hardy’s knee slide. Going unpunished: Jack Nowell slides into Toulouse’s Alban Placines (Getty Images) That time it was in Melbourne during Ireland’s second-Test win over Australia, as Dane Haylett-Petty led with his knees, which forced Conway off and prematurely ended his tour. This has become such a persistent problem in the game that players will continue to do what is, let’s face it, a dirty piece of play, until they are called up on it – when in fact it should be a case of: adjust your body position or face the consequences.Come on, World Rugby, let’s stamp this nonsense out of the game before it gets even further out of hand.This article originally appeared in the December 2020 edition of Rugby World magazine. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS You don’t have to look too far to see this kind of thing happening week in, week out at every level. But unless it is stamped out at the very top, it will continue to be a blight on the game. Jack Nowell sliding into Alban Placines in the Exeter-Toulouse Champions Cup semi-final was highlighted on BT Sport. And the opening weekend of the Pro14 threw up another example when Scarlets’ Kieran Hardy hurled himself, knees-first, in the direction of Chris Farrell, who had just got over the line for Munster. Rugby Rant: Stop defenders kneeing try-scorersOF ALL the attempts to make the game safer, it still boggles the mind that World Rugby have not done more to clamp down on players sliding in with their knees as a try is being scored.Brian O’Driscoll summed it up well when he said: “It’s not football, you can’t slide tackle.” Yet two years later, nothing appears to have changed.It has reached the stage now where it’s difficult to know what exactly we are waiting to see happen before such reckless acts are punished appropriately because it is not as if players have not been injured by this already.The incident O’Driscoll was referring to occurred in Castres in 2018 when Benjamin Urdapilleta slid in knee-first as Andrew Conway attempted to regather the ball shy of the try-line. The Munster winger was lucky not to have been seriously hurt, but he wasn’t as fortunate six months earlier when he was on the end of a similarly poor attempted ‘tackle’.

Bohns at the ILR School at Cornell University, and published in the volume 69 of the Journal of Experimental Social Psychology. It states that despite email’s reach, asking in person is the significantly more effective approach; with just asking six people in person equal the power of sending an email to 200.In one experiment for the study, 45 people asked 10 strangers each to complete a brief survey. All participants made the same request using the same script but half did so via email, while the other half asked face-to-face. It found that people were much more likely to agree to complete a survey when they were asked in-person.However, before the experiment, the study found that email participants felt just as confident as face-to-face participants that people would respond positively to their request, guessing that an average of 5.5 of the ten people they asked would agree, compared to 5 for those asking in person. In fact, the face-to-face requests were 34 times more effective than emailed ones. 130 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis39 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis39
Home Indiana Agriculture News Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative Awarded $10k from Perdue Foundation Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative Awarded $10k from Perdue Foundation SHARE Facebook Twitter Perdue Farms has the initiative to improve the planet through the education of Indiana farmers and producers. The Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation has awarded the Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative (CCSI) $10,000. CCSI is a program of the Indiana Conservation Partnership with a mission of improving soil health on Indiana cropland. “Our partnership with Perdue will further help CCSI to address environmental concerns as well as help our Indiana farmers become more resilient to extreme weather events and challenging market conditions,” CCSI Director Lisa Holscher said.In the Washington, Indiana area alone, the Perdue Farms Turkey Operation consists of 180 farm family partners who rear Perdue flocks and approximately 150 local grain farmers who provide corn to feed the flocks. In addition, Perdue purchases over 70,000 ton of soybean meal annually with soybeans provided by grain farmers from across the state of Indiana. The positive impact of CCSI would give a direct benefit to Perdue’s local farmers and ranchers.“The Indiana Conservation Partnership, through its Conservation Cropping System Initiative, has a long, successful history of educating farmers and communities on ways to improve soil health on Indiana cropland, especially through the use of cover crops,” said Steve Levitsky, Vice President of Sustainability for Perdue Farms. “At Perdue, we believe in addressing the health of soils to ensure farmers have sustainable, viable cropland while benefiting the environment.”The funds requested of the Perdue Foundation will go towards supporting CCSI soil health outreach and education efforts. Since 2011, through an active outreach and education program that includes farmer-mentors, researchers, and top soil-health advisors, CCSI has held education events that have reached over 26,000 attendees. A consistent, science-based, farmer-proven soil health message has been core to the increased adoption of soil health practices, including cover crops – which now rank third, behind corn and soybeans as Indiana’s most commonly grown crop.“We are honored to invest in a program like this. It not only educates the farmers on healthy practices but also enriches the soil and improves the environment,” said Kim Nechay, Executive Director of the Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation.

The High Court also recorded the submission that “the inmates released on parole, are being asked to surrender after lapse of parole period and their parole is not being extended, in prevailing circumstances when the movements are checked inmates cannot be asked to surrender, hence their parole needs to be extended and be extended”.The Public Prosecutor had also advanced that “the committee in its report has advised that in view of nation wide lock down and lack of transport facilities, extension of parole needed to be extended for further four weeks and has advised for amendment of rules accordingly”.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Story
Suspect who allegedly took 2 women hostage at UPS facility in New Jersey died on the scene: Officials
WPVI-TV(LOGAN TOWNSHIP, N.J.) — The suspect who allegedly took two women hostage at a UPS facility in southern New Jersey Monday morning died on the scene, according to officials.A shooting occurred outside the UPS facility in Logan Township Monday around 8:45 a.m., after authorities received reports of a man with a gun that had taken the two women hostage inside, according to a press release from the New Jersey attorney general’s office.As the hostage situation unfolded, the other employees were evacuated from the facility, leaving only the suspect and victims inside, Gloucester County Prosecutor Charles Fiore said at a news conference Monday.The shooting occurred after the gunman and hostages had exited the building, according to the attorney general’s office.The women, both UPS employees, were not seriously injured during the hours-long standoff and were later rescued, the prosecutor said.Multiple law enforcement officers fired at the man, identified as 39-year-old William Owens of Sicklerville, New Jersey, and he was pronounced dead on the scene, according to the attorney general’s office.One of the hostages had a prior relationship with the suspect, the prosecutor said.UPS said in a statement Monday morning, “We cannot provide information about the identity of people involved at this time.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
