Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Sharescenter_img Shares in FTSE 250 cinema chain Cineworld Group (LSE: CINE) have risen from a market-crash-low of 18p in March to a five-bagging high of 99p in June. Since then, the Cineworld share price has fallen by 50% to around 48p.At this level, analysts’ estimates value the stock at just three times 2021 forecast earnings. That could be a bargain. But, as I’ll explain, I think anyone tempted by Cineworld’s share price needs to look at the bigger picture. In my view, this stock carries some serious risks for shareholders.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…Will things get back to normal?The first question to ask is whether cinema chains can ever return to normal operation. By normal, I mean high levels of seat occupancy and unrestricted food and drink sales.I don’t see this as a big concern. It may seem unlikely right now, but I think history and common sense suggest we will get back to normal at some point — perhaps during the next six to 12 months.If I’m right, Cineworld could be well positioned for a return to growth. The group is one of the largest cinema operators in the UK and the USA. This provides negotiating power with movie studios and some attractive economies of scale.Although streaming services such as Netflix are a growing competitive threat, I’d bet people will continue to enjoy going out to the cinema and watching films on a big screen.Why am I worried about the Cineworld share price?Given my bullish view on the outlook for the cinema business, you might wonder why I haven’t been buying Cineworld shares ahead of a potential recovery. The reason is that while I think the business will survive, I believe it has too much debt and will need refinancing.If I’m right, shareholders could see a lot of dilution. In my view, the stock’s 2021 forecast P/E ratio of 3 reflects this risk. I think the market is pricing in a sharp reduction in earnings per share from forecast levels.Look at the numbersEven before the pandemic, I didn’t think that Cineworld’s financial situation was ideal. The company’s most recent accounts date from the end of 2019. At that time, the firm had net debt, excluding leases, of $3.5bn. That represents a leverage multiple of 3.5x cash profits (EBITDA).That was already well above my preferred limit of 2.5x EBITDA. But for a business like Cineworld that generated plenty of cash, it wasn’t a disaster.Although the firm hasn’t provided any update on its total debt levels this year, we do know that Cineworld has secured some extra borrowing facilities. I think we can safely assume net debt is higher than it was at the end of 2019.In my view, Cineworld stock is likely to be weighed down by the group’s high levels of debt. I suspect that as trading improves, all available cash flow will be required to repay short-term debt.I think Cineworld will eventually need to raise fresh cash by issuing new shares. For existing shareholders, this could result in significant dilution. I’d say Cineworld’s share price is about right at current levels. I plan to avoid the stock until we get more clarity on the group’s financial situation.

UK vaccine approval: the share I’d buy now

Image source: Getty Images See all posts by Christopher Ruane Christopher Ruane | Wednesday, 2nd December, 2020 | More on: JDW The UK has now approved the Pfizer vaccine for use. Positive vaccine-related news has tended to help the stock market. I expect that this UK vaccine approval will also lead to positive sentiment for recovery shares.One share in particular I like is pub operator JD Wetherspoon (LSE: JDW).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…Why vaccine approval is good news for WetherspoonThe UK has had a stop-start system of lockdowns across the country this year. One of the worst-affected types of business has been pubs and there has been uncertainty around whether and how pubs can open at times. For example, in England, the requirement to serve substantial food meant forced closure for pubs without dining offered. But pubs also face a unique problem with stock disposal. While some shops can shut their doors and reopen with the same stock, pubs cannot. Beer goes stale. So each lockdown has meant many pubs have literally had to pour valuable beer down the drain rather than sell it to thirsty punters.The selective lockdown approach to pandemic management is thus very damaging for the pub trade. A vaccine offers a different way out of the pandemic. UK vaccine approval will allow a mass vaccination effort. With that, public life ought to get back to normal – including pubs being open.JD Wetherspoon has had a torrid year, like many pub owners, and in October reported its first loss in over 30 years. However, if the pub trade goes back to normal, it is ready to benefit. Where it has been allowed to do so, it has kept its pubs trading through lockdown. Additionally, it is still standing. I expect a lot of pubs will unfortunately go under this year and never reopen. That means a lot of trade for other pubs. At least some of that is bound to come the way of Wetherspoon.I’d buy Wetherspoon shares nowThe shares have already recovered a lot this year, more than doubling from the lows they hit in March. In November alone, they put on almost 30%. So there already seems to have been a shift in sentiment on the shares. That may have been in anticipation of the vaccine.However, I continue to see the shares as good value and would buy them today. The company has a winning formula in the market, with its combination of cheap beer and popular locations. Its chief executive has continued to increase his stake over many years, aligning management interests with those of shareholders. While its balance sheet has more debt than I would like, it is still more attractive to me than the balance sheets of competitors such as Mitchells & Butlers.I expect the UK vaccine approval news will be broadly good for market sentiment. Specifically, I think it will force a reevaluation of companies that stand to gain business from mass vaccination. Wetherspoon is one and I would buy it today.

The Shangwei Plugin Houses are renovated houses that are hundreds of years old, left vacant and in ruins for decades as Shangwei Village suffered from heavy disinvestment. The rapid urban expansion of nearby Shenzhen engulfed villages like Shangwei, turning them into urban villages, or rural islands surrounded by a sea of new development. Half of the properties in Shangwei lay abandoned as villagers fled in search of higher standards of living in neighboring areas.Save this picture!Fang Family Exterior.

However, such properties are difficult to renovate because any work would affect adjacent structures. To circumvent this problem, the Plugin House leaves the original structure untouched while a new structure is built inside the existing house.Save this picture!Fang Family Exterior.

Structural connections are integrated into each panel so that a Plugin House can be built with unskilled labor using one tool in less than a day.

Because part of the original roof still remains, the Plugin House insertion acts as structural reinforcement and as a protective measure against any structural issues the original house may have.

It empowers these organisations to grow, innovate and build upon the services and support they provide to their beneficiaries.”Karl Wilding, Director of Public Policy and Volunteering at NCVO, said:“It’s fantastic to see charitable organisations opening their doors to show the real-life impact that loans from ethical financial providers have on our communities. It’s thanks to the businesses, charities and individuals that choose to save their money with ethical banks, such as Charity Bank, that support can be provided to organisations that need it.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.
