Where will the Lloyds share price go in June?

first_img As a Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) shareholder, it’s great to finally be able to say the shares have had a good year. Well, so far at least. The rise has carried on through May, pushing the Lloyds share price up 35% in 2021. Will the momentum keep on driving the shares up through June?Well, I’m not seriously going to try to predict where Lloyds will go next month. That’s for two reasons. One is that anything can happen in such a short timescale, and one-month movements are hard to distinguish from random. The other reason is that I’m lousy at the prediction game anyway.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…But do I see value in taking stock of what’s happened and thinking about the things that could affect the Lloyds share price through June and beyond.Lloyds share price weaknessLloyds shares are still down around 12% since mid-February 2020, just before the pandemic hit and the stock market crashed. Prior to that, Brexit uncertainty was giving Lloyds shareholders a hard time. We still face that, but are there any pandemic uncertainties left?In its Q1 update for March, Lloyds reported a £459m impairment release, due to the improving economic outlook. It still had a net impairment credit of £323m in the quarter, mind. But that means the impact of the pandemic crash on the bank’s bad debt situation hasn’t turned out as badly as feared. And further improvements over the rest of the year could see Lloyds freeing up more of the cash it’s set aside.That could give the Lloyds share price an extra lift, though boosting dividend prospects. The bank has already paid a 0.57p dividend, though that’s hardly the amount retirement dreams are built on. But it’s the maximum that the PRA will allow right now. So we’ll have to wait and see what dividend levels Lloyds will pay when free market conditions return. The resumption of dividendsAt Q1 time, Lloyds said it was “accruing dividends with intention to resume progressive and sustainable ordinary dividend policy.” Once that’s back in place, I think we really can start to see things as back to normal.The next update on Lloyds’ future dividend policy should come with July’s first-half results. But without anything scheduled for June, I think its share price could drift sideways for a while. Still, June could be a very important month for Covid-19 progress. And any economic news could have an effect.Anyway, whatever happens to the Lloyds share price in June and over the next few months, it’s not too important to me. And I reckon there’s probably as much chance of short-term losses as gains.But I do think the positive progress the bank’s made in the first quarter could well set it up for a good year. And then we come back to the risks posed by Brexit.I’m holding, and I might even top up.

Committee legislative aide the Rev. Patty Downing is at left. ENS photo/Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service – Indianapolis] The Episcopal Church’s Joint Standing Committee on Program, Budget and Finance held its last hearing – one on spending – on the evening of July 7.The committee, which is now two days away from the deadline for it to propose a budget for the church’s 2013-2015 triennium, heard from many of a long line of witnesses that snaked down the hallway of the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown. PB&F extended the hearing for a half hour in order to hear from more people.What the members heard were requests that they include money for the program or ministry that each witness advocated. Those requests ranged from pleas for funding of what one witness called “life-saving work” to what another said was a “measly” amount of money to update the e-mail system at the church center in New York.Deputy Dave Bailly, of North Dakota, told the committee that the money the church has given his diocese in the past “saves lives every day” by enabling the church to form partnerships and reach out to impoverished Indians.The line of people wanting to testify snaked down the hallway of the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown. PBB&F extended the hearing for a half hour in order to hear from more people. Here, Rebecca Wilson, center, and Rebecca Duggan, an Episcopal Service Corps member, go over her testimony as they wait. ENS photo/Mary Frances SchjonbergBailly called North Dakota a “state of contrasts” with unemployment close to two percent in the portions of the state in the midst of a boom in oil production and between 70 to 80 percent on the state’s Indian reservations.“The poverty there is abject; it is unbelievable,” he said. “The problems with our youth are amazing — teen suicides are at record high levels”“We reaching out to hundreds and hundreds of youth, and we’re helping them to look forward to a future,” Bailly added. “These are programs that are high impact.The church’s triennial budget aids four Indian Country dioceses including Alaska, Navajoland Area Mission and North and South Dakota.The three counties with the nation’s highest poverty rate, and four of the top 10, are in western South Dakota, according to U.S. Census Bureau statistics reported here. Ziebach County in the Cheyenne Reservation is first at 50.1 percent. Todd County in the Rosebud Reservation and Shannon County in the Pine Ridge Reservation are ranked second and third.The Rev. Steven Pankey, Diocese of the Central Gulf Coast deputy, asked PB&F to allot the “measly $50,000” needed to update the church center’s e-mail system, which currently runs on a Windows 2003 platform.Before the testimony began, Diocese of Maine Bishop Steve Lane, who is PB&F’s vice chair, told the crowd that “PB&F has been listening hard not only at this convention, but long before this convention and we think we are well aware of the resolutions making their way through the two houses.”“In building the budget, we are very mindful of the needs and concerns of the church and we are considering things in the budget even before the resolutions are passed,” he said, adding that the committee believes that “a number of resolutions will still be in the pipeline” when the committee has to present a budget to convention.“This is the nature of our system – this kind of parallel development between resolutions and the budget-building process,” he said. “This is the way it always is, but we’re two days shorter this time around so we are endeavoring to do our best to hear you to include as much as we can. We just want to say that we recognize that the legislative process in the houses will not be complete before we must submit a budget.”The committee is scheduled to present its proposed budget at 2:15 p.m. July 10 to a joint session of the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies in the deputies’ hall. Lane has said that because the budget document must be to the printer by 3:00 p.m. local time July 9 at the latest, the committee will have its 2013-2015 proposed budget finished by noon that day.A vote in each house is set for July 12, the last day of convention. The budget takes effect Jan. 1, 2013.— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service. July 8, 2012 at 9:46 pm Interesting in an age where many if not most small to midsized orgs have outsourced their email and server systems, ECUSA is still maintaining an outdated system and at least some want to pour more money into it.

Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 5

first_imgMonday Mar 16, 2009 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 5 It was do or die in Round 5 of the Super 14 for many teams. Some delivered, giving themselves a fighting chance at making the top 4, while others have seen that dream come and go. Twelve tries of this weekend’s action have been jam-packed into yet another RugbyDump Pick of the Week.There was plenty of everything this week. Storming set-piece play brought crowds to their feet from Newlands to Dunedin while some superb build-up play from the likes of the Brumbies and the Chiefs brought the house down; Adam Ashley-Cooper’s two minute try had to be condensed.The Crusaders were up to their old tricks despite a long injury list that is partially responsible for their current 11th place on the table. Though unable to perform as well as they would have liked, the Cantabrians ran in two beauties with Ryan Crotty and Isaac Ross finishing off. A lack of concentration in the second-half, not to mention two magical Matt Giteau moments, saw the Western Force come back to draw the match.Fortunately for the spectator, blow-outs have been few and far between this season but round 5 saw the Blues beat down the last place Cheetahs and the Stormers run away from the Lions. Jacque Fourie’s interception and offload to speedster Henno Mentz was a flash of brilliance amongst an otherwise one sided contest for the Stormers. Sireli Naqelevuki also showed what a lethal and well balanced runner he is, scoring a neatly taken try.It’s all to play for next week in round 6 as the Bulls, Waratahs, Sharks and Blues fight to maintain their spots at the top of the table.

WATCH: Fascinating results when the world’s fastest rugby players meet each other

first_imgWednesday Mar 31, 2021 WATCH: Fascinating results when the world’s fastest rugby players meet each other There are two elements of rugby that it’s safe to say fans are universally obsessed and fascinated by: size and speed. While the bigger guys can impress when it comes to the big hits and imposing physicality, there is no substitute for speed, as this video shows. ADVERTISEMENTOn the Sevens circuit is where some of the most impressive athletes in the world ply their trade, and perhaps to be expected, the USA has two thoroughbreds that have shown repeatedly how lethal they can be both on defence and attack.Carlin Isles and Perry Baker feature strongly in this compilation, but what’s nice to see is that they are sometimes shown up by the likes of England’s Dan Norton, amongst others.We recently saw Sevu Reece put in an incredible try saver for the Crusaders, getting up off the floor to chase back and pull off the almost impossible.WATCH: Never say die attitude of Sevu Reece is one of the best things we’ve seen this seasonJames O’Connor’s try saver on Tommy Bowe was also one that you can put down to heart, while a few years back in Super Rugby we saw Beauden Barrett take an intercept and go up against Stormers pocket rocket, Gio Aplon. Cam Clark’s try saver on Rieko Ioane is one to remember too.There are many other great moments in this video, and while the editing is a bit raw at times, it’s definitely lots of fun to watch and entertaining right to the end.

Reporters Without Borders welcomes the adoption of the Broadcasting Communication Services Law

first_img Deputies pass amended broadcasting law, new challenge ahead RSF_en “Pressure from big media must not endanger proposed media law” December 24, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders welcomes the adoption of the Broadcasting Communication Services Law News Update – 24 December 2014On December 13, the Parliament adopted the Broadcasting Communication Services Law. Reporters Without Borders has expressed its support for the text on various occasions since May 2013.__________Press release published on 16 December 2014 : Media law – “we hope parliament will not back down”Uruguay’s senate will debate the proposed Broadcasting Communication Services Law (LSCA) today. Submitted to parliament in May 2013 and approved by the chamber of deputies the following December, it is finally going before the senate after a long break for elections and after a great of deal of criticism by media groups. Reporters Without Borders interviewed Daniel Lema, the head of the Uruguayan Press Association, about the bill on the eve of the senate debate.Hailed as “exemplary” by the current UN special rapporteur for freedom of expression and backed by RWB, the LSCA aims to increase media pluralism in Uruguay, allowing a fair and transparent redistribution of broadcast frequencies among state-owned, commercial and community media, as recommended by RWB.RWB is pleased that the bill’s latest version again provides for the creation of a Broadcasting Communication Council that is independent of the government, as originally envisaged. This provision had to be dropped from last year’s version because Uruguay’s constitution forbids the creation of new public offices during the 12 months prior to a presidential election. The council’s independence constitutes a major guarantee for freedom of information.Uruguay’s leading media groups have been hostile to the LSCA since the outset. During the presidential election campaign, the National Association of Uruguayan Broadcast Companies (ANDEBU) said, “it is authoritarian regimes that regulate the media space.”Extracts from RWB’s interview with Daniel Lema:RWB – ANDEBU, the association that represents the private-sector broadcasters, has called this a gag law and even a fascist law. What does the Uruguayan Press Association thinks?DL – This position surprises me. Most countries have legislation regulating radio, TV and print media, either in their entirety or piecemeal, as in our case, and these countries are far from all being fascist. They include the United Kingdom, Chile, Brazil and Argentina. Our model is different from the models chosen in Ecuador and Venezuela. ADEBU says it is a bill designed to gag the media but we know perfectly well this is not the case. There are guarantees that are clearly designed to prohibit prior censorship* and to guarantee the existence of all the mechanisms necessary for freedom of expression.RWB – This bill has won the support of the special rapporteurs of the United Nations and the Organization of American States. Will this support have an impact on the parliamentary debate?DL – I think so. These people represent institutions that keep a close watch on freedom of expression and have mastered all there is to know about international standards. They have demonstrated a readiness to leap to the defence of freedom of expression and, for example, they questioned Ecuador’s law.RWB – What guarantees does Uruguay’s law give to journalists?DL – We are convinced that this law gives them the guarantees they need in order to work without being subjected to pressure. It will not limit freedom of expression in any way.RWB – What impact could the media groups have on the debate?DL – The media groups have been very active for months trying to prevent the bill from being approved. They have brandished the spectre of curbs on freedom of expression but I think this hides the real reason for their opposition to the bill – the fact that it will regulate their activities. I think they will keep lobbying until the very end in an attempt to block its approval. We hope parliament will not back down.After the senate vote, any changes to the bill will be examined by the chamber of deputies on 22 December.Uruguay is ranked 26th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.* Article 106 of the LSCA forbids “discriminatory use of the granting or renewal of permits and licences with the aim of exercising pressure in order to punish or to reward or benefit journalists or media according to their news coverage or editorial policies.” Receive email alerts UruguayAmericas News UruguayAmericas Help by sharing this information center_img July 9, 2013 Find out more Call for continuing transparency and dialogue in media law’s passage April 4, 2014 Find out more News Follow the news on Uruguay Organisation December 12, 2013 Find out more to go further Newslast_img read more
