The easyJet share price is falling: should I buy now?

first_img Royston Roche | Friday, 21st May, 2021 | More on: EZJ Budget airline easyJet‘s (LSE: EZJ) share price fell by 2% yesterday after the company released its first-half results. In contrast, the FTSE 100 index rose 1%. This suggests to me that investor sentiment is low for the stock after the company’s result announcement. Is the price drop a buying opportunity for me? easyJet’s recent resultsRevenue for the first half of 2021 fell by 90% year-on-year to £240m. This was primarily the result of lower passenger travel due to the lockdown. Passenger revenue fell by 91% to £170m and ancillary revenue fell by 87% to £70m. Ancillary revenue includes extra baggage, allocate seat, and seat changing charges, among others. So, this revenue segment also depends on more passengers. On the whole, I consider the revenue satisfactory considering the lockdowns and Covid-19 disruptions. 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…I also think the company’s liquidity position is good. It has cash and undrawn loans of about £2.9bn. The company successfully raised capital from various sources since the start of the pandemic. It was also able to reduce its cash burn for the second quarter to £38m per week on average, outperforming the company’s previous guidance of £40m per week.Risks to considerThe company expects to fly 15% of 2019 capacity levels. This is lower than the expected passenger capacity for British Airways owner IAG, which is expected to be around 25% for the June quarter and the company’s own earlier estimate of 20%. Also, there is uncertainty on full re-opening due to new Covid-19 variants. The hope of resumption of summer travel was one of the reasons for the stock’s appreciation in the past few months. If the travel industry is slow to pick up steam, I think that easyJet’s share price might hit the floor. The company’s operating costs will also rise when it starts its operations. So, the benefits will not be immediate for the company. Also, there is uncertainty on the number of countries where hotel quarantine is required. This will be an additional burden to flyers. So, holiday flyers might postpone their summer travel plans. This could further negatively impact the company’s revenues this year. The company reported a pre-tax loss of £701m. This was within the management guidance range of £690m–£730m loss. I think various governments might keep some restrictions in place since international travel appears to promote the spread of variants. If this is the case, the company will need more time to return to profitability.During the normal international travel period from the year 2015 to 2019, the company’s average price-to-earnings ratio was around 14. Using the 2019 diluted earnings per share (EPS) figure of 87.8p, the current share price is trading about 11 times. There is high uncertainty at the moment as to when the company will achieve this EPS. So, I believe that there is not much upside.My final view for easyJet’s share priceThe company’s share price rose about 75% in the past year. The successful vaccination drive and the expected start of international travel led to the strong upward movement. However, the increase new Covid-19 variants and also the uncertainty of travel regulations makes me feel that this is not the right time for me to buy easyJet.

Helsinki summit: Europe urged to remind Russia of its human rights commitments

Russia must be reminded that fulfilling the undertakings it has given to defend basic freedoms, including press freedom, is obligatory. Help by sharing this information News November 24, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Helsinki summit: Europe urged to remind Russia of its human rights commitments Receive email alerts May 28, 2021 Find out more Poland’s veto on talks about a new economic and energy partnership has not left the European Union and Russia without anything to discuss at the Helsinki summit that opens today, as the EU has a duty to remind Russia of its undertakings to defend basic freedoms, Reporters Without Borders said, condemning the tendency to regard human rights as secondary to economic issues.“Many converging factors point to a decline in press freedom in Russia, of which the latest and most dramatic has obviously been the murder of journalist Anna Politkovskaya in broad daylight in Moscow in October,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It brought to 21 the total of journalists killed for doing their job in Russia, in a climate of extremely disturbing impunity, since Vladimir Putin became president in March 2000.”The organisation continued: “Russian society must itself put a stop to this violence and we therefore urge Europe’s leaders to remind their Russian counterparts that the international community expects these murders to be solved. We ask in particular that no effort should be spared in identifying the perpetrators and instigators of Politkovskaya’s murder. Europe’s legitimacy and moral authority and the need to show support for Russia’s journalists and human rights activists are all at stake.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Russia is one of the signatories of the European Convention on Human Rights. It is also a member of the Council of Europe, and held its presidency until 15 November. It has therefore signed an explicit undertaking to respect and protect human rights. We urge the European authorities, as guarantors of respect for these values, to remind Russia that compliance with this undertaking is obligatory.”The EU-Russia summit was supposed to discuss the terms of a new economic partnership, as the current one expires at the end of next year, but Poland vetoed the opening of talks because of a Russian embargo on Poland’s meat and vegetable exports. Russia has responded by threatening to embargo all European meat from the start of next year, when Bulgaria and Romania join the EU. to go further Organisation “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says News BelarusEurope – Central Asia RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” May 27, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Barwell’s Tweet shows consistency on fees ban

first_imgHome » News » Barwell’s Tweet shows consistency on fees ban previous nextRegulation & LawBarwell’s Tweet shows consistency on fees banMany senior Tories including May and Hammond have changed their minds since 2014Nigel Lewis29th November 20160584 Views This week Housing Minister Gavin Barwell was caught off-message on Twitter when a reply he gave to magazine Inside Housing about the rumoured fees ban was unearthed.Barwell said (see right) ‘Bad idea – landlords would pass costs ton to tenants via rent. We’re looking at other ways to cut upfront costs & raise standards’.It is no doubt this sort of mood music from the Tory government that persuaded NALS that a Fair Fees Forum was a good idea. But they, like Barwell, were caught by surprise when Hammond announced that he would bring forward a total ban on fees charged to tenants.At least Barwell is consistent, though. He is one of the few people Tory MPs who who haven’t undergone an astonishing conversion to banning tenant fees since 2014.Those with longer memories will recall that both the 2014 Labour amendment to the Consumer Rights Bill and a 2013 Private Members Bill both failed to gain support from the Tory benches.Chancellor Philip Hammond and Prime Minister Theresa May both voted against the Labour amendment, which was defeated by 291 to 228 votes.But while Barwell has stuck to his guns – his Tweet reflected his ‘no’ vote to the Labour amendment, Hammond has change his tune.By proposing a ban during the Autumn statement, Hammond said it would ‘improve competition in the private rental market and give renters clarity and control over what they pay’.One irony of the Labour amendment in 2014, which most agents opposed, is that agents and landlords were going to be allowed to charge for credit checks, something they will not be able to do if the current proposed ban become law.
