BT share price challenges: Cancelled dividends and a £31bn merger

first_img Kirsteen Mackay | Friday, 8th May, 2020 | More on: BT-A 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. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. BT share price challenges: Cancelled dividends and a £31bn merger  FTSE 100 company BT (LSE:BT-A) has had a volatile time recently and yesterday its share price took a plunge. This was in reaction to the company’s much-speculated pledge to cancel its dividend and plough billions into ramping up its fibre investment. Meanwhile, two significant competitors announced a merger to challenge the UK telecoms market. Telefonica, the owner of O2, and Liberty Global, the owner of Virgin Media, agreed to a £31bn merger. The BT share price was down 7% on the news.Mounting competition amid increasing costsThe O2/Virgin Media merger is unexpected and poses a threat to BT’s monopoly in the UK consumer market.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…The merger will create one of the UK’s largest entertainment and telecoms firms. O2 has approximately 34m users and Virgin has around 6m broadband and cable TV customers plus 3m mobile users. This merger should see its customers benefit from a wider range of services. But, what does this mean for BT’s shareholders and is BT still a share worth investing in? Billions and billions of poundsBT reported a 12% fall in pre-tax profits to £2.3bn for the year ending March 2020. This was partly blamed on a £95m charge caused by the Covid-19 crisis.In response, the FTSE 100 business suspended its £1bn final dividend for last year along with an estimated £1.5bn in dividends for 2020–21. This is to free up money to forge ahead with its modernisation plans. The savings will form part of the £12bn investment necessary to fast-track its roll-out of full-fibre broadband to 20m UK homes by the end of the year.BT is a highly indebted company with a 65% debt ratio. Its cost-cutting measures should help it meet its target, but £12bn is a vast amount of money to spend on something that faces mounting competition. Cyber securityI’ve liked BT for a while, not so much for its telecoms, but its cybersecurity division. This is an area of increasing demand globally. I think the pandemic will have reinforced this, particularly as so many businesses have their employees working from remote locations, with much less control over their data, online safety, and security.However, is it a lucrative enough part of BT to warrant continued enthusiasm?Protecting the UK’s Critical National Infrastructure is of increasing importance. Four years ago, the World Economic Forum estimated the cyber-crime cost to the international economy was at least $445bn. Now it is expected to cost the global economy over £4.2trn in the next four years.As economic competition becomes increasingly global the cyber market expands with it. Meaning BT will be up against increasing competition in this arena.Is the BT share price a long-term buy?When choosing cheap shares to buy in a market crash, it’s important that investors consider the company’s debt and ability to grow. Having considered the monumental amount of spending BT has pledged to do in the coming months, I no longer feel bullish on this share. The BT share price is down nearly 75% in the past five years. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look set to recover soon. It will face rising pressures both internally and externally with many hurdles to cross and regulatory burdens to contend with. With no dividend to sweeten the deal, it’s just another risky share with little to offer shareholders.  Image source: Getty Images. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Kirsteen has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Families of Sandy Hook victims, FBI agent file defamation lawsuit against right-wing radio host Alex Jones

first_imgOli Scarff/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Six families of victims killed in the Sandy Hook Elementary School mass shooting, as well as an FBI agent who responded to the scene, filed a defamation lawsuit today against radio personality Alex Jones, who has repeatedly called the shooting fake.The lawsuit accuses Jones, a staunch gun rights advocate who operates Infowars, a website that routinely propagates conspiracies, of “a years-long campaign of abusive and outrageous false statements.”Twenty children and six educators died in the Dec. 14, 2012, shooting at the Newtown, Connecticut, school.“While the nation recoiled at the terrible reality of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Alex Jones saw an opportunity,” the families’ attorney Josh Koskoff said. “He went on a sustained attack that has lasted for years, accusing shattered family members of being actors, stating as fact that the shooting itself was a hoax and inciting others to act on these malicious lies.”The plaintiffs are the parents of four children killed at Sandy Hook — Jacqueline and Mark Barden, parents of Daniel; Nicole and Ian Hockley, parents of Dylan; Francine and David Wheeler, parents of Ben; and Jennifer Hensel and Jeremy Richman, parents of Avielle — as well as Donna Soto, Carlee Soto-Parisi, Carlos Soto and Jillian Soto, the mother and siblings of first-grade teacher Victoria Leigh Soto; and Erica Lafferty-Garbatini, the daughter of Sandy Hook Elementary School Principal Dawn Hochsprung. FBI agent Bill Aldenberg is also a plaintiff.“As a result of Jones’ campaign,” the families and Aldenberg said they have been “forced to endure malicious and cruel abuse at the hands of ruthless unscrupulous people.”Their lawsuit also names Wolfgang Halbig, a Florida man who founded the now-defunct website SandyHookJustice, his associate Cory Sklanka and Infowars itself.The lawsuit, filed in Superior Court in Bridgeport, cites Jones’ public assertions, including one from Sept. 25, 2014, in which he said video from the day of the shooting showed that the same children were cycled in and out of the school and that no emergency helicopters were sent to the school, and were “clearly staged.”The lawsuit quotes Jones as saying on Jan. 13, 2015, “Yeah, so, Sandy Hook is a synthetic completely fake with actors, in my view, manufactured.”The plaintiffs called such statements, among others, “outrageous, deeply painful and defamatory.”The lawsuit seeks damages of an unspecified amount but in excess of $15,000.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Landmark maps out a new future for property

He founded the company in 2010 and it’s not surprising that Landmark should prize his skills and experience. ETSOS was profitable within a year of launching and, most recent records show for 2014, has a turnover of £12m.“By bringing together all of Landmark’s residential property services under one roof, we are now looking at ways of delivering new product and service initiatives for the benefit of our estate agency clients,” says Phil.“I am excited to be leading the new division and to working closely with our clients and other Landmark divisions on future developments to support the operations, management and growth of our client’s estate and letting agency businesses.”For those with longer memories than most in the industry, Landmark Information is headed up by Mark Milner who until 2012 was CEO of another DMGT business, the former Digital Property Group. Its portals and PrimeLocation were merged with Zoopla in 2013 to create ZPG.Landmark Information Metropix ETSOS November 21, 2016Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
