Are Lloyds shares a buy today?

first_imgContinued uncertaintyLloyds is one of the most profitable large banks in Europe, but it doesn’t do much business outside the UK. Although this may seem to mean that Brexit shouldn’t affect it too badly, it has a significant retail focus, so if Brexit causes a downturn in the UK domestic economy, then it could be at risk of another share price decline. It also has a very high debt ratio of 94%, which although similar to other UK banks, is nothing to boast about.When I wrote about the FTSE 100 firm at the beginning of December, I expressed my reservations considering the UK political climate and signs of a global slowdown along with the very low UK interest rates, possibly set to go lower.The world is currently in a heightened state of alert since the US killed top Iranian general Qasem Soleimani. This (and increasing concern over global cyber threats that make banks a prime target) adds to the risk surrounding this sector.Until Brexit is concluded I still feel that the banking sector is one to avoid. Although I see the appeal in Lloyds’ relatively low P/E and the dividend that is covered twice by earnings per share, I think the uncertainty ahead still makes this a risky share purchase.

Enter Your Email Address “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Lloyds Banking Group (LSE:LLOY) suffered a humiliating and potentially brand-damaging start to the New Year. It endured an IT glitch that locked customers out of their accounts for over eight hours on New Year’s Day. This also affected customers of Halifax and Bank of Scotland, which are also part of the group.On January 2, Travelex, a foreign exchange company, had to take its site offline to deal with a cyber-attack, which affected its customers including HSBC, Barclays and Sainsbury’s Bank.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…Although a company spokesperson for Lloyds confirmed a cyberattack wasn’t the cause of its own outage, both these incidents affecting the banking sector in quick succession again highlighted the vulnerabilities faced by big business’s reliance on IT.Share price fluctuationsThroughout 2019, the Lloyds share price had endured a volatile time, dropping over 27% between April and August. This was in part because of an influx of last-minute PPI claims as the PPI deadline approached.Yet despite facing a series of troubles, the value of Lloyds shares rose later on to end 2019 22% up, boosted by December’s Conservative election win.Positive sentiment surrounding the Brexit divorce has seen a break in the clouds over the banking sector and contributed to the recent rise in Lloyds share price.It now has a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 11.5 and earnings per share are 5.5p, but these financial metrics point to the Lloyds share price being undervalued at today’s levels and besides this, it offers a very attractive 5% dividend yield going forward.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Address Up until a few weeks ago, Codemasters (LSE:CDM) shares had enjoyed quite the ride, increasing by almost half between November last year and February.Then the Covid-19 crisis happened. Shares have reversed all the gains seen in the previous three months.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…That may strike you as odd. Aren’t video games supposed to one of the products in high demand at the moment, as kids and indeed big kids, stay at home?The reason for the fall is that one of the big Codemasters games lined up for this spring was Fast & Furious Crossroads, designed to complement the latest Fast and Furious movie. The movie release has been delayed, leaving a question mark over when the game will be available.Codemasters had acquired the rights to the video games project after purchasing Slightly Mad Studious for $30m — mostly in the form of hard cash. So you can see why the share price collapsed.The other big productCodemasters is not a one-product company. It is not even a one ‘high profile licence’ company. It also has the exclusive rights to publish FIA Formula One World Championship.I think the markets have over sold Codemasters for four reasons.Firstly, because video games are going to be very popular this year.Secondly, I think the absence of Formula 1 during the Covid-19 crisis will mean that the Codemasters game will offer racing fans an alternative.Thirdly, Formula 1 itself is launching a series of F1 eSports. This will entail a series of virtual races instead of the actual races. These days eSports, when fans watch video games players compete with each other, are big business. The F1 series virtual series will be broadcast over the internet and will be based on the Codemasters game. This is a big deal for the company.The fourth reason is that it was only quite recently that Codemasters announced a major shift to supplying its products digitally as opposed to in disc formats. This means the company’s margin has increased substantially. More to the point, in these difficult times, customers want digital games that they can play without having to go to a store or order online.The upside may be worth more than the downside I think that that the share price is not allowing for the above factors. I expect Codemasters games to be very popular over the next few months.Also, bear in mind that the company hasn’t lost the Fast and Furious licence. The product’s release will probably be delayed, but not cancelled.I think the markets have sold because of the bad new and ignored the good news. That’s good news in the context of this company, of course. At a human level, I don’t think there is any good news at the moment. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Northern Indiana: Bishop Ed Little will resign in 2016

first_img Featured Events Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Tags Bishop Edward S. Little II[Episcopal News Service] Diocese of Northern Indiana Bishop Edward S. Little II recently announced the he will resign at the end of June 2016.Little, 68, was ordained and consecrated in March 2000 as the diocese’s seventh bishop.He included the following letter in the April edition of the “Around the Diocese” newsletter.Dear brothers and sisters,This past Tuesday I presented a letter to the Standing Committee, announcing my retirement as of June 30, 2016. At the time, I will have served as bishop of this wonderful diocese for 16 years. My ministry as your bishop, however, will actually conclude three months earlier – March 31, 2016 – when I begin a three-month sabbatical to write a long-planned book.Palm Sunday marks the first day of a new visitation cycle. In my closing cycle, I will have the  opportunity to visit all 36 churches of our diocese and to thank you for your witness to Jesus, for your faithfulness in mission and ministry, and for your kindness and encouragement to Sylvia and to me.I have said many times and in many settings that if I had the opportunity to choose any diocese in the Episcopal Church to serve as bishop, I would without hesitation select Northern Indiana. Our diocese is a profoundly Christ-centered community, a place where Jesus is known, loved, worshiped, and followed. Our relationships are deep. Indeed, the small size of our diocese is a blessing, because it has given me the gift of knowing people and parishes in a way that my colleague bishops envy. March 18, 2000, the day of my consecration in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the campus of Notre Dame, marked a turning point in my life for which I will always give thanks. You have touched Sylvia’s life and mine, welcomed us into your hearts, and drawn us ever more deeply into the heart of Jesus himself.Sunday is the high point of my week. Worshiping with you, hearing the Word and sharing the Eucharist, and seeing Jesus at work in a glorious variety of ways have planted memories that I will forever cherish. I offer thanks to God for the gift of walking with you as fellow disciples, and am humbled by the expressions of love and support that Sylvia and I have received during a decade and a half of ministry in Northern Indiana.In the coming months, I ask for your prayers for the Standing Committee, under the leadership of its president, Fr. Matthew Cowden. Their task is to discern the next steps for the diocese and to oversee the process of electing the 8th Bishop of Northern Indiana. This challenging and exciting work will be an opportunity for the entire diocese to walk in faith into the future that God has planned.St. Paul’s words seem especially apt, and express something of what I feel as I write this letter: “I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:3-5).I lean on St. Paul’s words because I am overwhelmed with gratitude, beyond my ability fully to articulate, for the privilege of serving as Bishop of Northern Indiana.

Volleyball continues road struggles, falls to Kansas

The loss drops the Frogs to 0-5 on the road.TCU started the game firing on all cylinders as an offense. Their 18 first kills in the opening set led to a quick set point. After a short run by the Jayhawks, strong defense at the net by middle blockers Katie Clark and Sarah Swanson sealed the victory for the Frogs. Clark and Swanson each finished with five blocks in the match.TCU’s strong offense, led by outside hitter Élan McCall, forced another set point in the second set. However, a strong run by the Jayhawks was too much for the Frogs, and they lost the second set 27-25.McCall finished the match with 19 kills, extending her streak of games with double-digit kills to 13, tying a TCU record set by Anna Vaughn in 2005.TCU was not able to handle the strong runs put together by Kansas in the third and fourth set, dropping to 1-1 in conference play.Defensive specialist Dani Dennison and outside hitter Lexi MacLean each had 14 digs in the match to lead the Frogs on defense.After a bye this Wednesday, the Frogs will go on the road again Sept. 29 to play Kansas State.

Warrants yield €1.2 million worth of drugs for Limerick Gardaí

We have never seen anything like it.”“Gardai are doing the best job they can do with the recourses they have,” he added.Head of the Limerick Garda Division, Chief Superintendent Gerry Roche, had increased resources in the Divisional Drugs Unit (DDU) last year, which has yielded significant results in gardai removing deadly drugs from the streets.center_img WhatsApp Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat TAGSCommunityCrimeLimerick City and CountyNews Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites NewsCrime & CourtWarrants yield €1.2 million worth of drugs for Limerick GardaíBy David Raleigh – July 30, 2020 585 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Email Facebooklast_img read more
