Yesterday, bastion of British engineering Rolls-Royce Group (LSE:RR) saw its bonds lose their investment-grade rating. Standard & Poor’s officially downgraded the company’s credit rating to BB – junk status. Though the bond and equity markets are often seen as opposites, they are in fact two sides of the same coin.Bad for one, bad for the otherThough a downgrade in credit ratings is aimed at a company’s bonds, the impact is far more wide reaching. Firstly, the reasons why a company is deemed to be less likely to pay its debts are the same reasons it will be less likely to make profit 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…In the case of Rolls-Royce, S&P cited “prolonged weak profitability” as the reason behind its decision. This, and the fact that many of the engine manufacturer’s airline clients may no longer exist after Covid-19 lockdowns.Secondly, a softer credit rating makes it harder, or more expensive, for a company to raise money in the debt market. This inevitably means it either cannot finance things it would like, or will instead have to tap the equity market for funds. This means more shares on the market at a lower price.Rolls-Royce said the downgrade wouldn’t trigger any short-term early debt repayments at least. Meanwhile the other major ratings agencies Fitch and Moody’s still have their ratings for Rolls-Royce above junk status – BBB+ and Baa3 respectively.This downgrade could have an impact on the share price because of actions by institutional investors. Many big shareholders, such as pension funds, have set criteria for the kinds of shares they may hold. They may have a requirement to only hold shares in companies considered investment-grade, for example. Simply put, some large shareholders may be forced to sell their shares in Rolls-Royce, whether they want to or not. This means we could expect to see large sales coming through in the next month or so. It will likely come in dribs and drabs to stop too much price pressure, but it will still not be good for the share price.Triple threatThe future has three potential problems for Rolls-Royce. The obvious fact that everyone expects there to be fewer people flying will not be good. Indeed many airlines may be out of business. Needless to say this should mean cutting back on planes, and the engines they need.Rolls-Royce predominantly focuses on engines for large, wide-body planes. These are for long haul flights. Most experts agree that when people do start flying again, short haul demand will be the most likely area to recover first.The main problem for Rolls-Royce, however, will be the hit to its long-term servicing agreements. Its engine business is actually loss-making. It makes most of its money through service, where customers pay per hour an engine flies. During and after coronavirus, we should not expect as many hours of flying as we have seen in the past.At its low price, Rolls Royce shares may seem like a bargain, but personally I think for now at least, the credit agencies have a point. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Karl has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

Ben FletcherOne of the greatest labor leaders of the tumultuous period of the early 20th century was a Black man from Philadelphia named Ben Fletcher. In the forward from the biography by Peter Cole, “Ben Fletcher: The Life and Times of a Black Wobbly,” labor historian Robin D. G. Kelley describes Fletcher as a “radical pragmatist in that he paid attention to context, emphasized solidarity, and approached the work in an improvisatory and flexible manner — all without ever losing sight of the long-term goal: the emancipation of the working class from capital.”Born in 1890, Fletcher grew up near the Delaware River docks where he eventually worked. Fletcher joined the Industrial Workers of the World around 1910 and became a leader of the new IWW Local 8 in 1913, steering the dockworkers local throughout the 1920s. The local was born after a successful two-week strike by 4,000 dock workers. Local 8 was successful in abolishing unfair hiring practices and establishing a union hiring hall. Cole wrote, Local 8 “forced corporations in Philadelphia to deal with a union in which the great majority of members were African Americans and European immigrants. And they did it without ever signing a contract, instead enforcing their demands based upon the ever-present threat of a strike.” Fletcher was a gifted public speaker. Letters about his speaking tour in the 1920s describe that at “several meetings about 1,500 have listened, spellbound . . .”; and Fletcher was the “only one I ever heard who cut right through to the bone of capitalist pretensions to being an everlasting ruling class, with a concrete constructive working-class union argument.” (Labor Notes, Dec. 17, 2020)As Fletcher wrote, “While I do not countenance against the working class striking at the ballot box, I am firmly convinced that foremost and historical mission of labor is to organize as a class, industrially.” He advocated for a multiracial union movement, arguing: “No genuine attempt by Organized Labor to wrest any worthwhile and lasting concessions from the Employing Class can succeed as long as Organized Labor for the most part is indifferent and in opposition to the fate of Negro Labor.” (Labor Notes, Dec. 17, 2020)Fletcher was a target of U.S. state repression of the IWW during World War I; the government labeled the IWW “a vicious, treasonable and criminal conspiracy” and tried to crush it. Many Wobblies were arrested. Fletcher, the only Black defendant, served several years in prison, after which he returned to Philadelphia to continue organizing with Local 8. (Labor Notes, Dec. 17, 2020)Local 8 was one-third African Americans, one-third Irish and Irish Americans and one-third other European immigrants. Fletcher built the local in accordance with IWW’s commitment to interracial unionism, explaining that bosses benefitted by keeping Black and white workers fighting each other. When the bosses hired nonmembers or fired any Wobblies, workers quit working. The IWW became a force to be reckoned with on the docks, raising wages and improving working conditions and putting an end to segregated work gangs. All union committees and activities were racially integrated. Unfortunately Fletcher’s labor activism was cut short by a stroke in 1933; he died in 1949. Ben Fletcher left behind a powerful legacy of militant, anti-racist unionism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison News RSF_en February 1, 2021 Find out more EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information EgyptMiddle East – North Africa January 26, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Internet censorship and attacks on journalists amid major street protests Follow the news on Egypt Organisation Receive email alerts to go further Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the arrests and physical attacks that journalists suffered while covering demonstrations yesterday and today in various Egyptian cities. The authorities have been doing everything possible to keep the media at a distance in order prevent the circulation of images of protesters demanding President Hosni Mubarak’s departure. No TV station was able to film yesterday’s big protest in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.The authorities began jamming mobile phone communications early yesterday afternoon in places where protesters had gathered in Cairo. Representatives of the Vodafone and Mobile Nile phone companies today denied any involvement in the disruption of service, blaming the Egyptian authorities.The social-networking website Twitter and the livestreaming service Bambuser.com were both blocked yesterday afternoon. The hashtag #jan25, referring to protest, was widely used on Twitter yesterday.Access to Facebook was intermittently blocked today, with the degree of blocking varying from one ISP to another. Egyptian dissidents and civil society groups have been using Facebook for years to disseminate information and organize protests, including the 6 April 2009 strike.Slow Internet connections were reported, especially during attempts to access the online newspapers Al-Badil, Al-Dustour and Al-Masry Al-Youm. Access to Al-Badil and Al-Dustour was subsequently blocked altogether while Al-Masry Al-Youm experienced major problems that prevented it from operating during all of yesterday afternoon.Egypt is on the Reporters Without Borders list of Enemies of the Internet, above all for harassing and arresting bloggers, but it has not as yet set up Internet filtering systems as Tunisia and Iran have done. Many Egyptians posted messages on social networks in the past 24 hours voicing exasperation with the unusual level of censorship and began using proxies and other censorship circumvention tools to access blocked sites (see http://www.anhri.net/?page_id=23178).Seven Al-Masry Al-Youm journalists were attacked while covering the protests in Cairo. Ahmed Al-Hawari, the website’s editor, was attacked on Qasr Al-Aini Street by three anti-riot police, who tore up his press card and hit him with their batons although he shouted that he was a journalist. He was held for several hours. Mostafa Al-Marsafawi was injured by a tear-gas grenade. The staff of Al-Masry Al-Youm said they had been out of contact touch with one of their journalists, Mohamed Gamaleddine, since 4 p.m. (local time).An Al Jazeera crew was briefly detained in the Cairo neighbourhood of Shubra. Police have reportedly been watching Al Jazeera’s Cairo bureau and have been following its journalists. Last night, 11 rubber bullets were fired at a cameraman employed by the Cairo News Company (CNC), Bilal Fahem, on Tahrir Square. He was hit in the face, stomach, shoulder and back. His soundman, Karim Atta, received many baton blows. Both were taken to a hospital, from which they were released a few hours later.Yahia Fahem, another CNC cameraman, was attacked outside CNC headquarters by plain-clothes police officers and was briefly detained.Three journalists with the Japanese TV station Asahi – Kosuke Okuno, Yoshihisa Nomura and Chaimaa Sami – were briefly detained along with their driver, Hani Morsi, at around 1 p.m. today as they were trying to film on Tahrir Square.
