Enter Your Email Addresscenter_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares The airline industry worldwide has had a disastrous year. For obvious reasons, flights have been grounded and travel virtually ceased for months. There has been a lot of talk about Covid-19 changing the airline industry forever. It has been suggested that significantly fewer people will travel even after we return to some form of normality.While this may be true for a few years, the industry will recover. Consumers love to travel and memories of traumatic events are short. For instance, despite predictions that the tragic events of 9/11 would significantly reduce air traffic in the US, it had little to no effect in the long run.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…While businesses have continued to meet from a distance, this is not viable in the long run. If professionals like consultants do not want to travel any more, they will have to lower their prices to reflect their lower costs. It is unlikely that this will occur. While it is impossible, as other authors have noted, to predict when the industry will rebound, it is almost a certainty that flight volumes will increase from their current levels. As revenues increase, airline stocks will increase too, leaving an opportunity for bold investors to profit. Even if flights do not reach 2019 volumes for several years as analysts are suggesting, stocks will still recover from current lows. I believe that International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG) is a bargain stock right now, and is the right choice to outperform the FTSE and its competitors. Unlike US airline stocks like American Airlines Group and Southwest Airlines, which have experienced high volatility, European airline stocks have remained very low. Out of the five largest European airlines, IAG -which is third in terms of size – has declined the most year to date at 67%. This is despite having an arguably stronger balance sheet! When compared with the year to date return of the FTSE 100, which is currently around -19% at the time of writing, IAG presents a great opportunity. At this price, IAG is a bargain stock that should outperform the market.  IAG has the second most cash and equivalents out of the same group of airlines, and has a forward P/E ratio significantly above the average. This ratio measures the stock price against the predicted earnings per share. Currently, all five have negative ratios, because analysts are predicting losses this year. This is not surprising considering the lack of revenue in the past few months. However, at -1.8, IAG’s loss should be survivable, unlike Ryanair, whose forward P/E ratio sits at -17.6. This to me demonstrates that IAG is unfairly discounted and is a bargain stock for the risk-taking investor. IAG does have the highest level of debt, which at face value makes it seem like a very high-risk investment and explains why the price has fallen so far. However, IAG also has the highest current ratio. So, it has the highest liquidity and ability to pay its short-term obligations (those that are within a year). This demonstrates IAG’s strength, despite its high debt level. At this price even with its debt, I believe that IAG is a bargain stock and I am not the only one amongst my fellow Fools.   See all posts by Charles Heighton Charles Heighton | Wednesday, 8th July, 2020 | More on: IAG Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York En honor a la celebración del Mes de la Historia Negra durante febrero y al Beato Absalón Jones, el primer sacerdote afroamericano en la Iglesia Episcopal, el Obispo Presidente Michael Curry ha pedido mayor comprensión y compromiso con los Institutos y Universidades Históricamente Negros, conocidos como HBCUs.El Obispo Presidente invita a los episcopales “a profundizar nuestra participación en el ministerio de reconciliación de Cristo dedicando las ofrendas en las celebraciones de las festividades de Absalón Jones para apoyar a los dos Institutos y Universidades Episcopales Históricamente Negros (HBCU) que quedan: La Universidad de San Agustín en Raleigh, Carolina del Norte, y el Instituto Voorhees en Dinamarca, S.C.”Los dos institutos de educación superior se fundaron a finales del siglo XIX como empresa misionera de la Iglesia Episcopal. “Estas universidades brindan oportunidades educativas, económicas y sociales a comunidades de escasos recursos, y ofrecen muchas bendiciones en la vida de la Iglesia Episcopal”, dijo.Las donaciones a HBCUs proporcionarán ayuda muy necesaria para ofrecer becas competitivas y ayuda financiera, atraer y retener a profesores excepcionales, apoyar investigación de vanguardia de la facultad, instalar nueva y mejorada tecnología en todo el campus, y proporcionar un aula de última generación y equipo atlético.“La Iglesia Episcopal estableció e hizo un convenio de por vida con estas universidades, y son una parte esencial del tejido de nuestra vida compartida”, señaló el Obispo Presidente.HBCUsSi bien una vez hubo diez universidades episcopales como estas, hoy en día Voorhees y San Agustín son las únicas que quedan.La Universidad de San Agustín (SAU, por su sigla en inglés) fue fundada en 1867 por la diócesis episcopal de Carolina del Norte. Ubicada en Raleigh, la Universidad de San Agustín cuenta con más de 1.000 estudiantes que buscan completar sus Licenciaturas en Artes o Ciencias, mientras que estudiantes adultos emprenden estudios avanzados en Justicia Penal, Gestión Organizativa y Estudios Religiosos. La misión de la universidad es respaldar una comunidad de aprendizaje en la cual los estudiantes se preparan académica, social y espiritualmente para asumir posiciones de liderazgo en un mundo complejo, diverso y en constante cambio.El Instituto Voorhes, localizado en Denmark, Carolina del Sur, es un instituto privado históricamente negro que provee licenciaturas en el campo de las Artes Liberales. El Instituto Voorhees fue fundado en 1897 por la joven afroamericana Elizabeth Evelyn Wright como la Escuela Industrial Denmark. La Srta. Wright, que estudio bajo Booker T. Washington, soñaba con lo que parecía entonces un sueño imposible, empezar una escuela para jóvenes afroamericanos en el condado rural de Bamberg en Carolina del Sur.Para donarSe aceptan donativos aquí.Para más información comuníquese con Tara Elgin Holley, directora de Desarrollo de la Iglesia Episcopal a [email protected]ón JonesAbsalón Jones es honrado en la Iglesia Episcopal el 13 de febrero. Jones fue un clérigo afroamericano abolicionista, y el primer afroamericano ordenado sacerdote en la Iglesia Episcopal. Absalón Jones nació esclavizado bajo Abrahán Wynkoop en 1746 en Delaware. Jones se mudó a Filadelfia después de que su amo vendió su plantación junto con la madre de Absalón y seis hermanos. Jones compró la libertad de su esposa Mary y más tarde su amo le concedió la emancipación en 1784.En 1787, junto con su amigo Richard Allen, fundó la Sociedad Africana Libre, una organización benéfica de ayuda mutua que fue la primera de este tipo organizada por y para las personas negras. El obispo William White ordenó diácono a Jones en 1795 y sacerdote el 21 de septiembre de 1802. Jones sirvió fielmente a la gente en la Iglesia Episcopal Africana de Santo Tomás en Filadelfia, una iglesia que sigue siendo una congregación vibrante.“A medida que nos acercamos a febrero, el recuerdo del Beato Absalón Jones, el primer sacerdote afroamericano en la Iglesia Episcopal, tenemos la oportunidad única de celebrar su memoria y honrar el testimonio de las dos universidades que continúan formando nuevos líderes”, dijo el Obispo Presidente Curry. “En honor al compromiso de Jones de promover la educación de los afroamericanos y promover el desarrollo de líderes afroamericanos en todos los ámbitos de la vida, la Iglesia Episcopal se complace en designar a la Universidad de San Agustín y al Instituto Voorhees como beneficiarios de las ofrendas de las Festividades de Absalón Jones de 2018”.Los encartes para los boletines están disponibles aquí.

Though the bill did not pass, Ivy Tech has launched the scholarship as a two-year pilot program. In 2022, state lawmakers will review the results for possible expansion.With the majority of our state’s firefighters and EMS personnel serving as volunteers, the Public Safety Scholarship is a great opportunity for them to obtain needed skills to jumpstart or advance careers, and also encourage others to serve their communities. Visit IVFA’s website to learn more about this scholarship.
