The Saga share price is up 30%! Should I buy or sell?

first_img The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Click here to claim your copy of this special investment report — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top Small-Cap Stock… free of charge! Rupert Hargreaves | Thursday, 21st January, 2021 | More on: SAGA I would like to receive emails from you about product information and offers from The Fool and its business partners. Each of these emails will provide a link to unsubscribe from future emails. More information about how The Fool collects, stores, and handles personal data is available in its Privacy Statement. Since the beginning of 2020, the Saga (LSE: SAGA) share price has jumped by around 30%. But even after this performance, I believe the stock remains severely undervalued. Return to growthI think it’s fair to say 2020 was a terrible year for Saga. The group was just starting to get back on its feet after spending several years dealing with problems at its insurance business. It had also invested hundreds of millions of pounds in new cruise ships. These vessels were supposed to start earning their keep in 2020. Unfortunately, the pandemic put pay to that. 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…As a result, the organisation spent much of 2020 in survival mode. However, it wasn’t only the operational problems that weighed on the Saga share price throughout the year. The company also had to deal with management upheaval and a cash call, as well as an activist investor. Put simply, it was a very challenging year for the business. These issues now appear to be behind the company. It has fortified its balance sheet, a new management team started earlier this year, and it looks as if there is an end to the pandemic insight. After raising additional capital towards the end of last year, it seems to me its balance sheet is also much stronger than it was at the beginning of 2020. Saga share price valueAfter the past 12 months’ challenges, I think Saga is a very different business today than it was at the beginning of 2020, and that’s exciting. I believe the pandemic helped the business wipe the slate clean in some ways. It allowed the organisation to restructure and raise new money from investors. And now, I think the company has the foundations in place to develop its brand and grow sales in the years ahead. Of course, the company is likely to face further challenges in the near term. The pandemic is nowhere near over, and it could be some time before consumers are confident enough to return in large enough numbers to make Saga’s cruises profitable.Still, by concentrating on what it does best — offering products to the over-50s market — I think Saga has tremendous potential. It’s one of the most trusted brands in this space, and that reputation alone could be worth hundreds of millions of pounds. From an investment perspective, even after the Saga share price’s recent performance, I believe the stock offers a margin of safety. It’s trading at a forward price-to-earnings (P/E) multiple of just 8. This suggests to me that if the business can return to growth, it could yield large total returns to shareholders.On the other hand, if the company continues to struggle, the stock may not fall much further as plenty of bad news is already baked into the stock price. Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before!

Heineken Cup Final – Leinster v Ulster preview

first_imgBest & Co are sure to be targeting this area and will want to apply as much pressure as possible on the Leinster forwards. Starve the Dubliners of decent first-phase possession of the lineout and their back-line will have less time and space with which to weave their magic spells.Mad about Brad: Thorn wants to add another trophy to his impressive collectionBig-game mentalityThis is something Leinster have in spades – that much was clear from their hard-fought victory in Clermont. Take Brad Thorn, for example; he’s a hard-nosed winner who’s lifted numerous honours in both league and union, including a World Cup. Joe Schmidt has allied a dangerous attacking style to a dogged defence and improved scrum, and there’s little doubt they have the most complete game in Europe.A Heineken Cup final is new territory for these Ulster players, but they have risen to the occasion more than once already this season – hammering Leicester at Ravenhill and a knocking Munster out against all the odds in the quarter-final at Thomond Park. This will be another step up again and the Ulster fans will no doubt be adding their voice to proceedings at Twickenham – but will that be enough to inspire their team to victory?VerdictUlster will prove stern opposition, but it’s hard to see past the regal Leinster, so I’m saying Brian O’Driscoll & Co will win by six.LEINSTER v ULSTER, TWICKENHAM, SATURDAY 19 MAY, 5pm, Live on Sky Sports 3 TAGS: LeinsterUlster NOT FOR FEATURED LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Fantastic 15: Leinster full-back Rob Kearney is Europe’s most dangerous attacking playerBy Sarah Mockford, Rugby World Features EditorTHE FRENCH and English clubs have fallen by the wayside in this season’s Heineken Cup, so Twickenham will play host to the first all-Irish final on Saturday afternoon. Leinster are bidding for their third title in four years and hope to become the first team since Leicester to win back-to-back Heineken Cup titles, while Ulster are hoping to be crowned European champions for the second time having triumphed back in 1999.Attack v defenceLeinster have one of the most lethal attacking games in world rugby, with all 15 players on the pitch quality passers of the ball and talents who can cut split defences with their footwork and running lines.Rob Kearney is the most dangerous attacking player in Europe right now according to the Amlin Opta Index, which ranks players’ performances throughout the campaign. He’s made 740 metres from 91 carries – and the try he created against Clermont Auvergne in the semi-finals means Ulster will be keeping a close eye on him.Stop sign: Ulster prop John AfoaIn contrast, a solid defence coupled with Ruan Pienaar’s unerring boot have provided the basis for Ulster’s successful run. They have five of the top ranked defensive players in Europe and the return of Chris Henry and John Afoa to the side will only strengthen this area of the game.Afoa has an uncanny ability to shore up Ulster’s defensive line around the contact area, so if opponents cut back inside the prop is often there to grind their run to a halt. Henry may not get as many headlines as his big-hitting team-mate Stephen Ferris, but he is a great tackler who also has a knack of slowing the ball down.It is worth noting here, however, that Leinster are no slouches in defence either; they haven’t conceded a try in their last three Heineken Cup games and are an unbeaten in 14 European matches.In the lineout of fireOne area where Leinster have wobbled this season is in the lineout whereas Ulster have the best lineout stats in Europe, with Johann Muller and Rory Best keeping the side’s set-piece shipshape. LEINSTER: Rob Kearney; Fergus McFadden, Brian O’Driscoll, Gordon D’Arcy, Isa Nacewa; Jonathan Sexton, Eoin Reddan; Cian Healy, Richardt Strauss, Mike Ross, Leo Cullen (capt), Brad Thorn, Kevin McLaughlin, Sean O’Brien, Jamie Heaslip.Replacements: Sean Cronin, Heinke van der Merwe, Nathan White, Devin Toner, Shane Jennings, Isaac Boss, Ian Madigan, David Kearney.ULSTER: Stefan Terblanche; Andrew Trimble, Darren Cave, Paddy Wallace, Craig Gilroy; Paddy Jackson, Ruan Pienaar; Tom Court, Rory Best, John Afoa, Johann Muller (capt), Dan Tuohy, Stephen Ferris, Chris Henry, Pedrie Wannenburg.Replacements: Nigel Brady, Paddy McAllister, Declan Fitzpatrick, Lewis Stevenson, Willie Faloon, Paul Marshall, Ian Humphreys, Adam D’Arcy.last_img read more

Cuts threaten humanitarian institutions, ministries aiding Palestinians

Photo: Heidi Shott[Episcopal News Service – Jerusalem] In a corridor of Al Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City, Northern California Bishop Barry Beisner encountered a Palestinian father holding a toddler.The boy’s parents were concerned because he wasn’t developing at the rate of his twin brother, so they brought him to Al Ahli Arab Hospital for treatment in a program that serves underweight and malnourished children, said Suhaila Tarazi, the hospital’s director, interpreting the father’s words for Beisner and other members of the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, or AFEDJ, on Oct. 11.After several months of treatment, the boy was thriving and catching up to his brother, the father said, via Tarazi’s interpreting. As Tarazi turned to lead the visitors down the hallway, the boy’s father caught Beisner’s eye, gestured toward a doctor, Dr. Maher Ayyad, and blew a kiss of gratitude. No translation necessary.A Palestinian father holds his son, who has benefited from Ahli Hospital’s clinic for underweight and malnourished children. Photo: Barry BeisnerAl Ahli Arab Hospital, located in the Palestinian territory of Gaza, is one of 30 social service ministries owned and operated by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. Although Gaza’s Christian population has dwindled to around 900, the hospital is busier than ever. As the only charitable hospital in Gaza City, Ahli Hospital provides medical care with Christian witness to any of Gaza’s 1.9 million residents, regardless of ethnicity or religion.Members of the AFEDJ board of trustees, including Beisner, who is chair, were touring the hospital on behalf of the organization, whose goal is to build peace through financial support of education and health care in the Diocese of Jerusalem.Every two years, AFEDJ trustees travel to Palestine, Israel and Jordan to visit many of the institutions the organization raises funds to support. Since its founding in 1988, AFEDJ has raised more than $25 million for schools, hospitals and centers for disabled children in the area, with $1.6 million donated in 2018 alone.A total of 12 AFEDJ trustees from across the Episcopal Church took part in the trip this October, which coincided with an announcement by the U.S. government that it would cut $200 million in aid to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, or UNRWA. The agency, founded in 1949 to meet the needs of Palestinian refugees, provides support to a number of education, health care, relief and social service organizations, including Ahli Hospital. These cuts to U.S. aid mean the hospital’s monthly stipend from UNRWA is now reduced from $54,000 to $14,000.For an institution that spends more than $100,000 monthly on diesel fuel to keep generators running amid daily power outages, the implications are profound. Such cuts jeopardize the program that treats about 400 underweight and malnourished children each year, a lifeline to families in Gaza, where according to a 2015 study, 24.4 percent of children are underweight and 52.4 percent have stunted growth.And that is just one of the hospital’s medical services threatened by the withdrawal of U.S. aid. Ahli Hospital’s medical care proves vitally important because of the restrictions Israel places on the movement of people and supplies to and from Gaza. More than 40 percent of all requests from Gaza residents for travel permits to seek medical treatment outside the Palestinian territory are denied.In addition to the significant decrease in aid directly from UNRWA, hospital administrators must deal with the effects of cuts to USAID-funded partners. A three-year, $900,000 joint project between Ahli Hospital and Mercy Corps, which subsidizes medical care to refugees, was also defunded. The elimination of two major funding sources at once has forced a reduction in direct services to patients and triggered staff layoffs.“I’m afraid that if [cuts] continue in the future, that on your next visit, you can find children nearby the walls of this hospital dying,” Tarazi said in a briefing to AFEDJ trustees during their visit. “We are people. It’s possible there are conflicts between governments, but what are the faults of normal people? Of poor people?”Beisner put it this way: “The cuts to U.N. funding severely affect Ahli Hospital. Its leaders told us they may be looking at a shortfall of $700,000 this year. They’re living the baptismal covenant in the most inspiring way, really seeking and serving Christ among all persons. Almost everyone who walks through the door is Muslim, but they seek this hospital because of the values that it incarnates.”Ahli Hospital Director Suhaila Tarazi greets patients waiting for treatment. Photo: Matthew Dayton-WelchAhli Hospital is not the only diocesan humanitarian institution facing the prospect of drastic cuts to services as the result of the change in U.S. policy.The Jerusalem Princess Basma Centre for Disabled Children in East Jerusalem is one of the few institutions in the Palestinian territories to provide rehabilitation and medical treatment to children with disabilities and their families. The center, already on tenuous financial footing because of overdue payments from the Palestinian National Authority’s Ministry of Health, has been rocked by the announcement that the U.S. government will cut $25 million in bilateral aid to the East Jerusalem Hospital Network, of which it is a member. Such cuts compound existing shortfalls and further impede the center’s ability to provide critical services to children and their families. Particularly vulnerable is the service that provides children with newly identified disabilities and their mothers an intensive two-week residential therapy program. The center’s classroom for autistic children, the only one of its kind to serve Palestinians, also is at risk. As many as 500 children are in jeopardy of losing services if the funding shortfall is not addressed.“If we don’t receive money for providing therapies for children, we will have no choice but to close down in a few months because we will not have money to pay salaries or our suppliers,” the center’s director, Ibrahim Faltis, said. “The situation is so severe that somebody who is sane needs to intervene to help us.”In a recent letter addressed to partners across the Anglican Communion, the Most Rev. Suheil Dawani, archbishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, expressed his concerns related to the cuts.“If we don’t act immediately and shift gears to find other means of support and subsidy to our affected diocesan institutions, I can’t perceive how we can sustain and support them with the limited resources we have,” he wrote. “I am very much concerned and afraid that cutting off all American assistance, mostly in humanitarian aid, has hobbled the aid agencies that receive the funds, and more consequently, crippled the lives of Palestinians who continue to live in dire need and have fewer employment prospects now more than ever. This is unfair and beneath our compassion.”Despite concern for the Diocese of Jerusalem’s continued humanitarian work, AFEDJ trustees were struck by the hope they found among the institutions’ leaders.Endicott Peabody, a trustee from the Diocese of Arizona, said, “Our visit served to remind us that this work does not stop or even slow with the loss of these grants. I was particularly struck by the spirit of optimism and hope that I saw in leaders’ faces and heard in their words. I wondered why they were not as angry and frustrated as I felt. It’s clear that Jesus’ words to ‘love thy neighbor as thyself’ are more than just words here. They are the creed that drives our lives and our work every single day.”Beisner also raised the responsibility Episcopalians share for the work of the Diocese of Jerusalem. “We’ve heard leaders here say these are our ministries, too, because we are one body in Christ,” he said. “It’s not their ministry, and we’re the onlookers and cheerleaders. It’s our ministry.”– Heidi Shott is communications director for the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.

Photo: Church of England[Church of England] The Kitty Milroy murals in the chancel of St Mark’s Hale, Surrey, are an exceptional example of the Arts and Crafts movement.Depicting the Annunciation, the Benedictine, and the Gospels, the murals also feature local scenes. Kitty, or Eleanor Catherine Wallace Milroy, lived locally in Farnham until 1920.Some of the murals were last restored in the 1940s. It remains a mystery as to where Kitty trained, who commissioned, and who paid for the murals between 1911 and 1920.Experts now believe the works of art to be of “national significance” due to their quality and their place within the development of women’s art. Mural conservationists Stephen Rickerby and Lisa Shekede praised the works, which also echo contemporary Symbolist paintings.Lesley Crawley, vicar of St Mark’s, said: “The church is a place of restoration and we are delighted that we get to play a part in the physical restoration of this beautiful artwork.“Although it is of national significance, the local story is compelling and so many people have some connection to the mural, whether the painter or the models.“St Mark’s is already a place to explore creativity with services where art and craft is available and online with monthly art at St Mark’s.“We run a popular Lockdown Art Club and before the pandemic we ran regular art sessions where anyone could come and create.“We also want to explore the benefits of art and craft for mental health, linking in with the local community center and mental health charities in Farnham and Aldershot.”Read the full article here.

Egypt’s new cybercrime law legalizes Internet censorship

RSF_en Under article 7 of this law, Egypt’s authorities can now legally block access to any website that is deemed to constitute “a threat to national security” or to the “national economy.”  It legalizes a well-established practice. Hundreds of sites have already been blocked in the past few years, apparently on nothing more than the orders of security officials, and the authorities have arrested several online journalists and bloggers, including a news website editor and satirical bloggers. Even visiting a banned website is now punishable by a year in prison while those who create or manage a website that is subsequently banned could be sentenced to two years in prison. “This law just legalizes the Internet censorship that is already practiced in Egypt” said Sophie Anmuth, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “In the name of national security, which is defined very broadly and vaguely, the authorities have assumed the right to censor news sites or NGOs whose only crime is reporting human rights violations by the state.” According to AFTE, an Egyptian free speech NGO, and Access Now, which defends an open Internet, “national security” is defined so broadly that it covers “all that is related to the independence, stability, and security of the homeland and its unity and territorial integrity” and anything to do with the president’s office and all defence and security departments. Under another law passed last month, which has yet to be signed by the president, all social network accounts with more than 5,000 followers would be treated as media outlets.  RSF’s website is one of the many that are censored. It has been blocked since August 2017 without any explanation by the Egyptian authorities. On the first anniversary of the start of the blocking, RSF restored access to its site in Egypt by creating a mirror site. Ranked 161st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index, Egypt is currently one of the world’s biggest jailers of journalists, with at least 36 professional and non-professional journalists detained in connection with the provision of news and information.
