Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. Enter Your Email Address The Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price hasn’t aroused much interest from investors so far in 2021. It’s down 16% against a flat FTSE 100.Personally, I’m very interested in the stock. In fact, I think I could even double my money by buying Rolls-Royce shares at their current price of 94p.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…Here, I’ll discuss why I think the shares are attractive at this level. I’ll also look at the potential risks to my investment case.Quality businessLegendary investor Warren Buffett once said: “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price.” But best of all, he relishes opportunities to buy great companies “when they’re on the operating table”.There was a time when my colleague Peter Stephens confidently wrote: “Rolls-Royce is undoubtedly a high-quality company.” It was a view widely shared by us Motley Fool writers.Quality-focused institutional investors were also keen on the company. It was one of the largest holdings of the Sanlam Private Wealth Global High Quality fund. It was also owned by star fund manager of the day Neil Woodford on the basis that “it remains a quality business with superb technology, operating in an industry with very high barriers to entry.”The Rolls-Royce share price tumblesIn more recent years, Rolls-Royce has faced significant challenges that have hurt its financial performance and share price. Some have been internal, including a bribery scandal and durability issues with its Trent 1000 engine. Some external, notably the 2014-16 oil price plunge and current pandemic.My colleague Edward Sheldon is downbeat on the company. He explained: “The reason I don’t see much investment appeal in Rolls-Royce is that I view it as a ‘low-quality’ stock.”Hallmarks of qualityI think the bull/bear case for Rolls-Royce largely comes down to which of the following statements you think is nearest the truth:Rolls-Royce is a high-quality business on the operating table.Rolls-Royce is a low-quality business.Personally, I lean heavily towards the first statement. I think Rolls-Royce retains many of the hallmarks of a quality business, including market leadership in several of its key end markets and high barriers to entry.Rolls-Royce share price potentialManagement’s aiming to deliver at least £750m of free cash flow (FCF) next year. Rolls-Royce’s market capitalisation at its current share price of 94p is £7.9bn. Therefore, the prospective FCF yield is 9.5%. I think this is highly attractive.Back in its share price heyday of 2013/14 — when it was valued as a quality business — its market capitalisation reached as high as £23.8bn, and its FCF yield as low as 3.3%.If it hits its FCF target of £750m next year, I reckon Rolls-Royce’s FCF yield will move back towards a quality-company rating, and I could easily double my money from the current share price.Risks to my investment caseRolls Royce’s FCF target is dependent on the success of a restructuring programme, and management assumptions on the expected recovery in engine flying hours. If either proves too optimistic, there’s a risk it will not meet the FCF target.Furthermore, if the company were to continue struggling to deliver the cash flow, profit margin and return on capital that the market demands to value it as a quality business, Rolls-Royce’s share price may not enjoy an upward re-rating over the longer term.

BAYAN-USA, a progressive anti-imperialist alliance of over 20 Filipino organizations, sent a delegation to Standing Rock, N.D., in solidarity with the Sioux Nation in their fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline — and all Indigenous people protecting the water and lands, facing state repression and corporate plunder. The alliance issued a press release on Oct. 20 entitled “From the Philippines to Standing Rock: Water Is Life, Land Is Life, Fight for Self-Determination.” Excerpts are printed here; see full statement at tinyurl.com/gp5o83a/.“We are here to carry messages of love, hope, solidarity, and resistance from our homeland, the Philippines, which is comprised of dozens of distinct ethnolinguistic tribes and national minorities. We stand with you — the water and land protectors of North Dakota — as the U.S. government continues to prioritize corporate interests over your autonomy, self-determination and ancestral relationship to the land and water.“We stand with you in resistance against the U.S. military state and its violent dispersal of your people, trumped-up charges, and human rights abuses. … We stand in solidarity, as police deploy military-grade equipment, including armored vehicles, surveillance helicopters, planes, drones, and attack dogs — knowing that this state repression is endemic to U.S. imperialism and the suppression of resistance all over the world. …“Similar to the 280 Indigenous tribes that have united here at Standing Rock, SANDUGO, an alliance of national minority groups in the Philippines held a protest at the U.S. Embassy in Manila [on Oct. 21] … against U.S. imperialist plunder and militarization, and [is] fighting to defend their ancestral lands and right to self-determination. [Protesters] were violently dispersed with water cannons, teargas, and over 50 people were injured when a police van … [ran] over people repeatedly.“The brute force from the Philippine military and police to protect the U.S. embassy is in line with maintaining U.S. imperialism over the rights and welfare of the Filipino people. From our homeland in the Philippines to the militarization of communities by Urban Shield, to the killing of Berta Cáceres in Honduras, and to defending Indigenous rights in Standing Rock, we denounce the criminalization of resistance and stand with the protectors of land, water, and human dignity all over the world.‘Protect our waters and territories; No to Dakota Access Pipeline!’“The International Indigenous Peoples Movement for Self Determination and Liberation in the Philippines (IPMSDL) stands in unity with the Standing Rock Sioux Dakota and Lakota Indigenous Peoples in asserting their right to protect the waters of their ancestral lands.“Chairman Dave Archambault II of the Standing Rock Sioux reminds the world that Indigenous Peoples suffer from poverty and environmental sabotage because we are forced to subsidize for-profit corporations through schemes such as [DAPL]. … The U.S. government started the construction of the DAPL without the Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) of the Standing Rock Sioux Dakota and Lakota Peoples. …“The IPMSDL strongly urges the U.S. government to respect the rights of Indigenous Peoples within and outside its territories, … immediately halt construction of the destructive [DAPL] and honor the obligations and treaties it has signed and endorsed with respect to Indigenous Peoples and human rights.”IPMSDL calls for “Indigenous Peoples Rights organizations and groups to support the Standing Rock Sioux Dakota and Lakota Indigenous Peoples in their continuing fight for their right to self-determination.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailsportpoint/iStock(NEW YORK) — A top official at the United States Olympic Committee was fired on Monday over his delayed response to the Larry Nassar sexual abuse scandal.The USOC fired Alan Ashley, its chief of sport performance, in the wake of a searing report that claimed he failed to protect victims after learning of allegations against Nassar, who molested young athletes under the guise of medical care for decades, the committee said in a statement Monday.An independent report, conducted by law firm Ropes & Gray, said Ashley and former USOC CEO Scott Blackmun learned about the allegations more than a year before they became public, but failed to take action. Blackmun resigned in February.The report detailed how olympic officials and some of those with USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University “ignored red flags” and “dismissed clear calls for help” from young athletes who were being abused by Nassar, according to the 233-page report.“While Nassar bears ultimate responsibility for his decades-long abuse of girls and young women, he did not operate in a vacuum. Instead, he acted within an ecosystem that facilitated his criminal acts,” the report said. “Nassar carefully constructed a comprehensive system of abuse.”Ropes & Gray said it reviewed more than 1.3 million documents and interviewed more than 100 people, including gymnasts and employees and board members of the USOC, USAG and the U.S. Center for SafeSport.Gymnastics coaches Martha and Bela Karolyi, who ran the Texas training center where much of the abuse occurred, declined repeated requests to be interviewed as a part of its investigation, according to the firm.“The U.S. Olympic community failed the victims, survivors and their families, and we apologize again to everyone who has been harmed,” Susanne Lyons, a USOC board member and incoming board chair, said in a statement Monday. “The USOC board commissioned this independent investigation because we knew we had an obligation to find out how this happened and to take important steps to prevent and detect abuse.”Nassar pleaded guilty in federal court and two Michigan state courts last year and is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison.In all, Nassar committed thousands of sexual assaults beginning in the early 1990s and through the summer of 2016, according to the report.“He abused some survivors one time, while abusing others hundreds of times over a period of many years,” the report said. “With the cover he crafted, he became, in the words of one survivor, a ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing,’ who cloaked himself in the ‘guise of a loving friend and medical professional.’”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
