Here’s why Cineworld share price is crashing today


first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Here’s why Cineworld share price is crashing today Let’s be honest. No one expected today’s full-year numbers from battered FTSE 250 stock Cineworld (LSE: CINE) to be anything but derisory. So, why is the share price crashing if all this could have been anticipated by investors?Staggering lossThe chief reason for today’s fall seems to be due to the numbers being even worse than expected.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…Having been forced to close its sites from mid-March last year, Cineworld’s revenue tumbled 80.5% to a little over $852m. There were only 54.4m ticket admissions over the period, compared to 275m over the previous 12 months.Naturally, this horror show fed down to the bottom line. From making a pre-tax profit of $212.3m in 2019, Cineworld revealed a staggering £3bn loss for 2020.However, the company did what it could to preserve cash and reduce costs over this period. Even so, it was still forced to seek funding to stay afloat, bringing in just under $811m in additional liquidity. Today, it announced it had secured another $213m from institutional investors to see it through 2021.So, where next for the Cineworld share price?Since hitting a record low in October last year, the Cineworld share price has climbed 300%.

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. As much as I’d have enjoyed such a huge gain, the Foolish philosophy is to buy shares in great companies for the long term. Already heavily indebted before the coronavirus reared its ugly head, Cineworld isn’t a great company, at least in my view. Nor are its prospects good enough to lead me to think that the shares will outperform other London-listed stocks over the next five or 10 years.Sure, there are some things to be positive on, one of which is the strong movie pipeline. ‘Mission Impossible 7′, ‘No Time to Die‘ and ‘Top Gun 2‘ are all scheduled for release later this year. The belief that there’s a lot of pent-up demand to get back to the cinema also has legs to it. As the company said today, the theatrical industry in China, Japan and Australia has performed well since those markets reopened. Indications that the psychological impact of the coronavirus hasn’t been long-lasting are encouraging. Today aside, perhaps the Cineworld share price will continue rising over the next few months? Opportunity costAs things stand, Cineworld anticipates reopening its US sites on 2 April. In accordance with Boris Johnson’s roadmap, the UK estate will follow suit on 17 May.However, if the last year has taught us anything, it’s that nothing’s ever guaranteed. There’s still a chance cinemas might be forced to close again, particularly if recent flare-ups of coronavirus in Europe aren’t contained. Such a scenario would likely require Cineworld to go cap-in-hand to investors for yet more cash. This is probably the other reason why the share price is falling today.Is this a risk I’d be willing to take? No, especially given the opportunity cost of not being invested elsewhere. There are many great, far less indebted UK companies more deserving of my cash.Today’s drop in the Cineworld share price may be regarded by some as a chance to get involved before the real recovery starts. For me, however, it’s simply confirmation that the stock is best avoided for those who like to sleep at night. See all posts by Paul Summerslast_img read more

Ladbrokes: Bookmakers braced for ‘corker’ of a deadline day


first_img After a record breaking Summer transfer window, bookmakers are prepared for the busiest transfer deadline day in recent memory. With the futures of Alexis Sanchez, Philippe Coutinho and a whole host of world class players all in a state of uncertainty, fans and pundits alike will be glued to the transfer window betting markets right up until tonight’s deadline. Sanchez is currently 1/2 to end up at Eastlands and 7/5 to stay at the Emirates, as for Coutinho bookies have been kept guessing, with the Brazilian priced up at 4/5 to remain a Liverpool player and 10/11 to sign for Barcelona. Ladbrokes’ Jessica Bridges told SBC: “Transfer Deadline Day can often be hit and miss, but the bets flying in at present suggests this summer’s finale is going to be a corker. Transfer markets are the ultimate sort of wager where punters can put their opinion on the line – whether that’s with their heart or their head –  rather than backing an odds-on poke for the sake of it in a Saturday acca. “Fans of all football clubs have opinions, generally strong ones, about the sorts of players that clubs should or shouldn’t sign. So if you’re able to place a bet and make some money out of it in the process then even better as far as punters are concerned.”The drama and inevitabilities of deadline day began early, with Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain keeping everyone on their toes by rejecting the approach from Chelsea and opting to move to Liverpool. Bridges revealed: “He was 1/10 yesterday to move to the Blues, so fair play to all those who were on Liverpool at the 11/2 available on Tuesday.” GVC absorbs retail shocks as business recalibrates for critical H2 trading August 13, 2020 StumbleUpon Related Articles David Lampitt, Sportradar: F1 presents betting’s most sizeable opportunity August 14, 2020 Share Submit Share FSB selects Glenn Elliott as new COO August 12, 2020last_img read more
