However, after Burford came under attack from the noted short-seller Muddy Waters in the middle of the year, the stock plunged.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 company has been struggling to rebuild its reputation ever since. After a modest recovery towards the end of 2019, the stock price has resumed its downtrend this year.A “quiet” 2019According to the company’s latest trading update, after a “quiet” 2019, Burford’s profits for the year will now come in below expectations. In the update, management is forecasting $20m to $30m less in net realised gains for the year. Meanwhile, the group is also expecting $50m to $70m less in net unrealised gains. That’s current cases that have been marked up in value.Nonetheless, while these figures are disappointing, management notes that the business has improved significantly since the end of 2019. The company claims that if its January trading update were delayed for a month, results would have been better.Burford insists it has achieved several “litigation successes” in January. These could generate more than $150m in profit across the group in a single month as well as $100m of balance sheet profit.This trading update seems to suggest that Muddy Waters’ attack on the business last year has not had an enormous impact on its underlying performance. The company still seems to be racking up profits in this niche area of the financial markets.That being said, the stock continues to trade at a low valuation. It is currently dealing on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 5.1. This seems to suggest that the market still doesn’t entirely trust Burford’s figures, even though the company has gone out of its way to try to improve transparency.Further progress needed As such, it looks as if the next 12 months could be vital for the firm. Burford needs to prove to the market that the short attack has not had a significant impact on operations. While today’s trading update does go some way to meeting these concerns, further positive updates will help reinforce the fact.If the litigation finance provider does continue to grow throughout 2020, the stock could offer a wide margin of safety at current levels. Historically, the shares have commanded a valuation of more than 20 times earnings. That suggests they could be undervalued by as much as 75%. Also, the shares support a dividend yield of 1.6%.Therefore, this might be an attractive holding for those investors with a higher risk-tolerance. The risk-reward ratio looks highly attractive at current levels, but it could be some time before the market starts to trust Burford again. Image source: Getty Images last_img read more

Threatening environment for journalists

President Ouattara undertook, on World Press Freedom Day, to ensure that ‘journalists can work with complete freedom’ and we urge him to keep this pledge.”Oué was murdered at his home on 14 November by armed men who appeared to be carrying out a burglary. Kidnapped on 18 November, Tadé was released the next day 60 km outside Abidjan. He had previously received death threats over an article in which he referred to a former warlord in the pro-Ouattara rebellion.This is the second time since Alassane Ouattara replaced Laurent Gbagbo as president two and a half years ago that an Ivorian journalist has been killed in unclear circumstances. Sylvain Gagnetaud of Radio Yopougon was killed during a military operation by pro-Ouattara forces in the northern town of Yopougon in May 2011.The United Nations Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (ONUCI) issued a statement yesterday appealing to “all parties concerned to work for freedom of information and expression.”Côte d’Ivoire is ranked 96th out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

What Art Can Teach Us About Ourselves

first_imgHome of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Pasadena Rotarian Jeanett Cordon with Dr. Johnnetta ColeThe Rotary Club of Pasadena, a service organization that helps supports local and international causes, was treated to a notable guest speaker to their January 27 meeting to discuss the power of African Art. With Black History Month right around the corner, this well-timed speech by Dr. Johnnetta Betsch Cole, Director of The Smithsonian National Museum of African Art, gave insight and food for thought.Rotary Club members said these monthly meeting are to engage as well as inform and their choice of guest speaker is a reflection of the club’s values.Dr. Cole used her time at the podium to demonstrate the important role art plays in our lives and garner excitement for The Smithsonian’s The National Museum of African American History and Culture, which is scheduled to open in September, 2016.The Smithsonian’s nineteen institutes tell stories of our nation and serve as a testament to human creativity, dr. Cole said. To her, African art holds a special significance because Africa is the cradle of humanity.“If you go back far enough,” she told the gathering, “we are all African.”“Art has the power to bring people together…[and] encourage cross-cultural communication,” Dr. Cole continued.She pointed to the museum’s founding director, Warren M. Robbins, and his groundbreaking collection of African art in 1964.Dr. Cole described iconic pieces of African art such as Toussaint Louverture et la vieille esclave by Ousmane Sow and how art has the ability to touch the universal and remind us of what we all share.“Art has the power for us to reach out and connect … there is in each of us, the possibility to be creative,” said Dr. Cole.As exemplified in The Smithsonian National Museum of African Art and the forthcoming National Museum of African American History and Culture, art gives us a chance to share experiences, learn and remember.Much like the mission of the Rotary Club, art reminds us of our shared humanity, invites curiosity and spurs discussion.As a closing note, Dr. Cole added that the most important job of a museum is to engage and its viewers — not only about the art and artists but about themselves.For more about the The National Museum of African Art, Smithsonian Institution see http://africa.si.edu/.For more about the Pasadena Rotary Club, see http://www.pasadenarotary.com/.
