Why I think the IAG share price is a better buy than this aviation business

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares When airline Flybe was struggling and was taken over by the Connect Airways consortium in January 2019, I wasn’t too surprised to see Virgin Atlantic as one of the partners, but Stobart Group (LSE: STOB) did strike me as a little more surprising.The group’s Stobart Aviation division does operate a number of airports and offers air services, and I see that as a sensible ‘picks and shovels’ business. But running an airline itself (particularly one that was for sale only because it was struggling financially) can be a risky move.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…I pondered whether Stobart Group could be a way in to the aviation business with less risk (thanks to its diversified nature) than that faced by individual airlines or by holiday operators like Thomas Cook.Trouble?But according to Sky News, Flybe, having continued to make losses, is under threat of collapse and has been engaging in rescue talks with the government. The airline itself has deflected such claims, but Stobart shares fell 8.3% in morning trading.The share price had collapsed by mid-year 2019 after several years of impressive earnings growth came to a halt, and the dividend was slashed, but was I seeing a growth opportunity?At the interim stage, the firm said it was seeking “new long-term debt to fund its growth programme,” and I’m wary of debt-led growth. And now that Flybe looks like it’s in trouble, I’m not sure I’m seeing a joined-up business here, but rather a collection of different divisions that don’t share much synergy.Big airlineThe share price of British Airways owner International Consolidated Airlines (LSE: IAG) has had a flat couple of years, while Stobart’s has fallen nearly 60%.IAG shares are up 23% over the past five years too, which is a respectable performance — and over 10 years, we’ve seen a rise of 220%, which is definitely impressive. The airline operator (which also owns Spain’s Iberia) has been paying decent dividends too, yielding around 4%.So why wouldn’t I buy? Well, we’ve had a very strong decade for sure, but those have been cheap-oil years, and any further rises in the price of a barrel could have a seriously adverse effect. Airlines are hostage to the oil price and work on razor-thin margins.The past year or so has actually been pretty volatile for the IAG share price, and it’s taken a rapid recovery since August to achieve the current result — the shares were 35% below their current price before that happened.Bear caseMy Motley Fool colleague Divyansh Awasthi has listed a number of reasons to be bearish about IAG going into 2020, and they tend to make a lot of sense to me too.The shares might look decent value, but there was net debt of €6.2bn on the books at Q3 time at 30 September. That’s only a relatively modest 1.2 times EBITDA, which looks fine. But if we’re in a positive phase of a cycle for the aviation industry right now, and higher future oil prices could result in the next five years being tougher, that could become a problem.I think IAG is clearly a better buy than Stobart, but I still think airlines are too risky.

Discover the Charms of One of Japan’s Most Underrated RWC 2019 Cities

first_imgTuesday Jul 9, 2019 Discover the Charms of One of Japan’s Most Underrated RWC 2019 Cities Traditional culture, modern automobiles, and the timeless joys of cheering for your home country on the big screen; if you’re in Toyota city for the Rugby World Cup, come prepared for a massive day.ADVERTISEMENTDiscover the Charms of One of Japan’s Most Underrated RWC Cities MorningIf you’re flying in from Tokyo, then you’ll need coffee and there’s no better place to fuel up than Matsuzakaya, one of the city’s premier department stores. As well as being home to a wide selection of excellent cafes and restaurants, many of the local food shops inside Matsuzakaya, will be hosting special exhibitions themed on the rugby with collected exhibits from Italy and NZ. If you don’t make it before you head out, then remember the spot to return to later before the match.Next up, it’s time to head out to one of Toyota’s most historical attractions, Sanshu Asuke Yashiki, and the Asuke old townscape. The best way to get there is via bus from the city center. Sanshu Asuke Yashiki.ADVERTISEMENTLocated a roughly one hour journey from the heart of Toyota, Sanshu Asuke Yashiki Village is a picturesque neighborhood of traditional Japanese-style houses, which these days house the stores and workshops of many of the area’s talented artisans. Many of the artisans in the area also run workshops inside the traditional homes, teaching classes covering all types of arts and crafts including indigo dying, washi paper crafts and bamboo basket weaving. One of Sanshu Asuke Yashiki Village talented artisans.Like a well-preserved folk museum come to life, the townscape of Asuke is home to laid back local farmers, many of whom still use the same tools for crop cultivation as they used centuries ago. Wandering through this rustic, quaint homes is an ideal way to really immerse yourself in Japan’s regional history and witness first hand what it’s like to live off the land.Asuke township.ADVERTISEMENTThe area also produces a popular regional snack called ‘goheimochi’ a type of skewered rice cake typically covered in a soy, miso, or sesame-based sauce, it’s rather specific to the area so for a true taste of Aichi, be sure to try it out.Walking distance from Sanshu Asuke Yashiki sits Korankei Gorge, a stunning natural valley that’s most popular in November when the autumn leaves transform into fiery shades of red and orange. The gorge, however, is stunning all year round, and if you’ve made it this far, it’s definitely worth a short detour. Once you’re done soaking up the natural beauty of Korankei Gorge, it’s time to hop back on that bus to get amongst all the action in Toyota city.Afternoon It’s fair to say as Toyota is most widely known for the automobiles the city manufacturers, in fact up until 1959, Toyota was a known as Koromo (??), but was retitled as a dedication to the Toyota Motor Corporation. If you’re interested in learning more about how this laid back city became the home to one of the biggest car brands in the world, make some time to visit the Toyota Kaikan Museum.Toyota Kaikan Museum.The museum is broken up into six different displays and each with their own theme exploring the many facets of the company’s products, philosophies, and history. Even if you’re not too interested in cars, you’ll find something to keep you entertained, whether it’s the free plant tour which runs from Monday to Friday, or the hands-on, interactive displays.Given how far spread the attractions of Toyota are, it may be challenging to add a visit to Washi no Furusato to this one day run down; however, it’s well worth adding to your Toyota itinerary. The climate of the Toyota area is ideal for the cultivation of kozo (mulberries), which are a key component of Japanese ‘washi’ paper. Washi no Furusato is a gallery and craft center where you can learn all about these fascinating berries and how they came to shape the traditional arts of the area. Washi no Furusato.Evening By now, the day will be well and truly ticking into the evening, so it’s time for some pre-game dinner. For something local, try miso katsu, which is a delectable combination of a fried pork cutlet (tonkatsu) smothered in a thick miso sauce, it’s a rich choice, but one you surely won’t regret. Chain restaurant Misokatsu Yabaton is one of the city’s best places to try the dish, as they’ve been perfecting the art of miso katsu for almost 70 years now. Yabaton actually inside the T-Face located right next to Matsuzakaya, so now is a perfect time to check out the earlier mentioned rugby museum right before visiting the Toyota RWC Fanzone.Outside Toyota Stadium.The Toyota RWC Fanzone is your home of everything rugby, here you’ll find rugby-themed showcases, family-friendly activities, plenty of food and drinks, entertainment and unique regional attractions. Entry into all of the Fanzones across the country is free, and it’s an excellent place to soak up the atmosphere before the match, or even if you didn’t manage to get your hands on tickets.Spend a little time here exploring the Fanzone in the afternoon before watching the game. The hours between 6:00 – 10 pm are strictly about the match except on Saturday the 12 October when New Zealand v Italy, this match happens in the afternoon (13:45 JST) so be sure to keep an eye on the schedule.NightWhen the game is all over, and you’re looking for somewhere to finish the night, head to Booby’s. This cheeky but charming, British pub is a hive of activity for all sports fanatics all year round, but especially so during the rugby season.In celebration of the big event, Booby’s will extend their hours to the daytime too, so if you’re looking for somewhere to hang out before the games, this is the place to be. Booby’s British Pub.Covered with sports memorabilia from across the globe, the pub hosts regular sports night events and is the perfect place to soak up the atmosphere of the cup while knocking back a beer or two and getting to know your fellow sports fans.As well as all your boozy British favorites, Booby’s also boasts an impressive international food menu which includes but isn’t limited to classic British pub grub – think fish and chips, as well as hamburgers, pizza, curries, pasta, and desserts. A burger at Booby’s.The best place to stay when in town is close to the action, but you don’t want to sacrifice style for location, so if you want the best of both worlds, then stay at the traditional and luxurious ryokan, Sanage Onsen Kinsenkaku.Sanage Onsen Hotel Kinsenkaku.Located just north of Toyota Stadium, this laid back retreat has an onsite restaurant with both classic Japanese and American-style breakfasts available. An extra added bonus worth noting is that the onsen is super welcoming to foreign guests and the baths are tattoo friendly. Sanage Onsen Hotel Kinsenkaku.The easy option: Join a half day tourIf you’d rather leave the planning to the local experts, it’s worth mentioning that the Mikawa Branch Office of JTB run English friendly half-day bus tours of Toyota. Crafted especially for visitors coming to enjoy the RWC, the tour kicks off in Nagoya at 8:45am and takes guests to the Asuke area, and Toyota Kaikan Museum before wrapping up at Shin-Toyota Station at 3pm.For more info on prices and times, visit the website.Rugby World Cup City Guide – Toyota Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News , Rugby World Cup Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

‘Big Game Howie’ helps Frogs stave off CWS elimination against Texas A&M

And there has been a lot of memorable moments.“Obviously the story of today was Brian Howard,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “Big Game Howie, as he’s affectionately known in Fort Worth, showed up today.”‘Big Game Howie’ did what ‘Big Game Howie’ does. Howard tossed seven innings and allowed just one run on five hits.Tuesday’s outing moves Howard to 6-0 in 10 NCAA Tournament appearances in his career. He has a 1.87 ERA in 53 innings with 50 strikeouts. “My teammates are putting me in the position to play in the postseason and then doing great things behind me and offensively,” Howard said. “It’s really my teammates going out there and doing what they do for me, playing great defense and putting runs on the board.”Howard started the game by striking out six of the first seven batters to get through two scoreless innings. In the third, pitching with a 1-0 lead, Howard set down the Aggies in order. When he went out for the fourth inning, TCU had opened the advantage to 4-0. Howard responded by continuing to dominate. The Aggies picked up a single but three easy outs, including his seventh strikeout, ended the inning.As the Horned Frog bats cooled off, Howard continued to mow down the A&M hitters. Howard struck out two batters in both the fifth and sixth innings to give him his third double-digit strikeout performance in his four postseason starts this season. A couple hits allowed the Aggies to scratch a run across in the sixth, but Howard stranded a runner on third to keep the lead at 4-1.“I’m not going to apologize for losing to [Howard],” Texas A&M head coach Rob Childress said. “That guy’s a really good pitcher.”With his pitch count in check, Howard returned to the mound in the seventh and picked up his 12th strikeout in a scoreless frame to match his career high in punch outs. His previous 12 strikeout game was May 26 in the Big 12 Conference Tournament when he threw a complete game shutout against Kansas.“I think today was probably the best stuff I had all season,” Howard said. “I’m pumped I didn’t walk anybody. I felt like I was attacking the strike zone from the beginning and I was able to carry that through.”Howard allowed a leadoff double to George Janca in the eighth, leading Schlossnagle to bring in Sean Wymer from the bullpen. Two strikeouts and a groundout later, Wymer had the Frogs three outs away from staving off elimination. Instead of going to the nation’s leader in saves, Durbin Feltman, Schlossnagle stuck with his most reliable reliever. Wymer set down A&M in order in the ninth to seal the 4-1 win and pick up his second save of the year. Sean Wymer picks up his second save of the season. (Photo by Sam Bruton)“It means a lot to see him go out there and do what he does and then finish the game for him,” Wymer said of getting to finish off Howard’s masterpiece. “It was pretty special.”The TCU offense manufactured a run in the second when Nolan Brown blooped a double down the third baseline before two ground balls moved him home. Brown’s run was the first for TCU in over 10 innings in this year’s CWS as the Horned Frogs were shutout by Florida in the opener Sunday.The third inning saw TCU grow its lead to four. Omaha native Ryan Merrill led off the inning with a long home run off A&M starter Stephen Kolek to the back wall of the right field bullpen. Omaha native Ryan Merrill rounds the bases after a solo home run in his hometown. (Photo by Sam Bruton)“As soon as I saw it leave, that’s when it just hit me how cool that experience is,” Merrill said. “I’m doing my best just to keep playing baseball with the group of guys that I’m sitting next to, so it was pretty incredible.”After a hit batter, Evan Skoug roped a double into right center for the third TCU run. Skoug had gone down on strikes in four of his five plate appearances in Omaha before the RBI two-bagger. Skoug came around to score TCU’s final run of the day three batters later on a run-scoring single to right by Elliott Barzilli.Kolek was pulled from the game after Barzilli’s hit, and Aggie reliever Kaylor Chafin entered. Chafin, who allowed one run in 6.1 innings against TCU in the Shriners Hospital for Children College Classic March 4, shutdown TCU again. He held TCU scoreless over the final 5.1 innings, surrendering just three hits while walking none and striking out six. “I treat it like every other game,” Chafin said of his successful outings against TCU. “I go out and try to do the best I can for my team and give them a chance to win, but it didn’t happen today.”For Texas A&M, their improbable run as a regional three seed turned College World Series team was cut short after just two games in Omaha. For the third straight year, TCU eliminated A&M from the postseason. In both 2015 and 2016, the Horned Frogs won three-game Super Regionals against the Aggies. For the Horned Frogs, a game two win keeps their fourth straight trip to Omaha alive. TCU will play the loser of Tuesday’s winner’s bracket game between Louisville and Florida on Thursday night at 7. TCU will need to win three games in three days to advance to its first College World Series championship series. Schlossnagle has yet to announce a starting pitcher for Thursday’s game.“It will either be Lodolo or Traver,” Schlossnagle said. “I want to think about it a little bit. Both those guys are tuned up and ready to go.” + posts Twitterlast_img read more

JJ Hanrahan’s perfectly timed kick in behind the Edinburgh defence found touch.Stuart McInally’s throw went astray and Marshall was on hand to power over after holding off a couple of Edinburgh tackles. Hanrahan nailed the extras to put Munster 7-0 up.Edinburgh had plenty of the ball after Munster’s positive early start with Duhan van der Merwe and Villiame Mata impressing.Van der Merwe made the Scottish side’s first foray into Munster’s half with a break through Billy Holland and Stephen Archer’s attempted tackles.The South African then offloaded to Mark Bennett and he ghosted towards the Munster line only to be denied by Conor Murray. Munster regathered their shape and the attack broke down after Simon Berghan knocked on.Edinburgh kept up the pressure and were rewarded on 18 minutes through a Sam Hidalgo-Clyne penalty after dangerous play by James Cronin.The Scottish scum half then reduced Munster’s lead to one point with a second effort from the kicking tee on 25 minutes.Late in the half, Edinburgh were almost away when Blair Kinghorn took advantage of an aimless Rory Scannell kick to launch a superb counter attack.Only heroic defence from Keith Earls kept Richard Cockerill’s men at bay.

Hanrahan added a splendid touchline conversion to put Munster 17-6 ahead.Edinburgh responded with a Hidalgo-Clyne penalty and then a Nathan Fowles try but it was Munster who clung on for victory after Hanrahan sealed a 20-16 win.MUNSTER: Simon Zebo; Andrew Conway (Darren Sweetnam h-t), Sammy Arnold, Rory Scannell, Keith Earls; JJ Hanrahan, Conor Murray; James Cronin (Dave Kilcoyne, 60), Rhys Marshall (Mike Sherry, 70), Stephen Archer (Ciaran Parker, 16); Jean Kleyn (Gerbrandt Grobler 52), Billy Holland; Peter O’Mahony, Jack O’Donoghue, CJ Stander (Robin Copeland, 60).EDINBURGH: Blair Kinghorn; Dougie Fyfe, Mark Bennett, Chris Dean (James Johnstone, 75), Duhan van der Merwe; Jaco van der Welt (Duncan Weir, 64), Sam Hidalgo-Clyne (Nathan Fowles, 56); (Allan Dell, 51), Stuart McInally, Simon Berghan (WP Nel, 51); Ben Toolis, Grant Gilchrest; Lewis Carmichael, Magnus Bradbury, Villiame Mata (Cornell du Preez, 61).REFEREE: Nigel Owens (WRU) RugbyMunsterNewsSportZebo magic helps Munster set up Leinster semi final clashBy John Keogh – May 5, 2018 2769 Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more
