Shareholders in small-cap environmental and resources consultancy RPS (LSE: RPS) woke up to a nasty surprise this morning – a 13% plunge in the share price!There must have been some unexpected bad news in today’s full-year results report. I’ll dig into that shortly, but first, here’s some background information.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…Cyclical and vulnerableFirst thing this morning, I ventured into the Motley Fool basement to find the archives on RPS. And after blowing off the dust, discovered my previous article on the company written on 14 July 2015 – years ago.Back then, I was comparing the firm’s tempting-looking valuation with what at the time were the expensive valuations of a pair of defensive stalwarts – British American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) and Unilever.However, in the article, I admitted that although RPS looked tempting, it’s a cyclical beast, and I said of the investment opportunity: “It could all go wrong if we really are just a spit away from macro-economic collapse!” And the firm has been demonstrating its cyclicality and vulnerability ever since. The share price has wiggled around, but there’s an unmistakeable down-trend on the chart and today’s 145p represents a decline of around 35% over the period.Earnings have been volatile – up one year and down the next. And the shareholder dividend is now around 50% lower than it was five years ago. If you’d been holding the shares, you probably wish by now that you hadn’t.Dire figuresToday’s figures aren’t pretty. Compared to the previous year, revenue slipped by almost 4%, fee income eased back just over 3%, adjusted diluted earnings per share plunged by almost 25%, and the total dividend for the year was cut off at the knees, plunging more than 55%.Indeed, the company has rebased the dividend down to adopt a “sustainable dividend policy of paying out 40% of adjusted earnings.” Chief executive John Douglas said in the report: “We had to contend with several headwinds which significantly impacted on the results.” But looking forward, he reckons trading conditions in the company’s markets are “generally satisfactory” in 2020 and he anticipates more stable results.But I’m not tempted to go near the stock. You’d have been better off investing in Unilever five years ago, which is up more than 60% since my previous article, despite its high valuation back then. Sometimes, quality companies can carry their rich earnings multiple.Today, though, of the three companies mentioned here, I reckon British American Tobacco presents us with the most attractive opportunity. Over the past half-decade, the over-valuation has unwound and now BATS sits about 8% below where it was. But there’s been strong operational progress over the period with revenue, earnings cash flow and shareholder dividends all up.I think today’s valuation is compelling with BATS, and the company is trading and growing well. My money would go into its shares right now to harvest its fat dividend. Kevin Godbold owns shares in British American Tobacco. The Motley Fool UK owns shares of and has recommended Unilever.

Starting May 31, it also will become a place of prayer through the River of Life pilgrimage organized by the Episcopal dioceses of New England. Photo courtesy of Kairos Earth[Episcopal News Service] New Hampshire Bishop Robert Hirschfeld has rowed on the Connecticut River for years. It once was a sort of industrial “sewer” but has since been cleaned up and restored to “a place of stunning beauty,” he said. Hirschfeld intends to show it also can be a place of worship and an inspiration for prayer.The bishop is preparing to lead a 40-day pilgrimage on the river, from source to ocean. In our sound-bite culture, Hirschfeld’s message can be reduced to this: Put down that cellphone, and pick up a paddle.“This is a way to experience God’s love for us, God’s grace, God’s desire to flow in us and around us,” Hirschfeld told Episcopal News Service in a phone interview. “And in our forming a community of pilgrims, my desire was to slow down and put aside our electronic devices, all the busy-ness of our life, and just be fully present with God and each other in the midst of God’s creation.”The River of Life pilgrimage, which launches May 31 near the Canadian border, is a collaboration of all Episcopal dioceses in New England, as well as the New England synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and several conservation groups. More than 50 people signed up in advance to canoe or kayak multi-day segments, camping overnight, and others are invited to join the group for day paddles. Daily segments average 10 to 12 miles.Pilgrims without a paddle or who live far from the Connecticut River still are encouraged to participate in the pilgrimage by following along as a “pilgrim in prayer” with the River of Life prayer book.The Connecticut River is New England’s longest river, passing through New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut before emptying into Long Island Sound. Paddling the length of the river isn’t unusual, and a speedy paddler could cover its 410 miles in about a week. But Hirschfeld sees this as a unique faith-based journey, offering a slower, more contemplative experience.The choice of 40 days was intentional – think Noah’s 40 days and nights of rain, or Jesus in the desert. Organizers also wanted to challenge the notion that Christian pilgrimages must lead to traditional destinations, like the Holy Land.“Why is it that we’ve never considered doing such things at home in our own sacred landscape, the places we actually live?” asked the Rev. Stephen Blackmer of Church of the Woods in Canterbury, New Hampshire. He has worked closely with Hirschfeld and Jo Brooks, their logistical coordinator, in planning the River of Life pilgrimage.“Part of the joy for me of exploring this is to say we can have similar experiences … right here,” Blackmer said. “And in that, we both bring ourselves closer to God and we restore our connections with the very places we live.”Blackmer, who began canoeing as a child, said he had about 30 years of experience in environmental advocacy before being called to the priesthood a few years ago, around the same time Hirschfeld was being considered for bishop of the Diocese of New Hampshire.In 2011, Hirschfeld was serving as rector at Grace Episcopal Church in Amherst, Massachusetts, when he got a letter inviting him to interview for New Hampshire bishop. A veteran of rowing teams in high school and college, Hirschfeld needed to reflect on that invitation, so he got out his one-man sculling boat and headed down to the Connecticut River.Rowing upstream, the idea came to him of a Christian pilgrimage on the river that would incorporate references to its natural history, human history and cultural history.For several years, that idea remained just an idea. He was elected bishop coadjutor in 2012 and took the reins of the diocese the following January. Then, in 2015, while attending an annual Advent retreat with all the bishops from Province I, he remembered the river pilgrimage and mentioned the idea to the other bishops.“They immediately got excited about it,” Hirschfeld told ENS. “It was like lightning had struck. … Even those not interested in kayaking or canoeing, they just saw a value to this as a way of doing public liturgy, as a way of bearing witness to the health of water.”Blackmer, one of the first new priests Hirschfeld ordained in New Hampshire, has been at the forefront of the diocese’s environmental ministries, including through weekly outdoor worship services at Church of the Woods, on 106 acres of woods and wetlands in Canterbury.“Steve makes things happen,” Hirschfeld said. Blackmer became an integral partner in developing the River of Life pilgrimage.“When people ask me what they can do for the environment, the first thing I say is, go outside,” Blackmer said.That, too, is a guiding principle of the River of Life pilgrimage. Hirschfeld and Blackmer expect eight pilgrims to make the journey to the headwaters pond of the Connecticut River, at the northern tip of New Hampshire. The first three days will be spent hiking from pond to pond in that region, until the nascent river becomes navigable. Then they will start paddling south in three canoes.“The number of pilgrims will grow and swell just as the river does as it travels downstream over the next four weeks,” Blackmer said. Hirschfeld and Blackmer will miss certain segments of the trip, due to their individual schedules, but each plans to paddle more than half the distance. Two guides are the only paddlers expected to be on the river all 40 days.For the northern half of the trip, most of the overnight stays will be at campsites chosen along the river. On the southern half, where outdoor campsites are harder to come by, most nights will be spent camping in churches. A support vehicle will follow by land with food and other supplies as needed.Each day, prayers will be read from the pilgrimage’s prayer book, but “the large part of each day will be in silence, to reflect that part of it is simply being there,” Blackmer said.They also have scheduled stops along the journey where community events will be held, typically on weekends. A list of events and day paddles is available on the pilgrimage website.And by the time the journey reaches Essex, Connecticut, on July 8 for a concluding celebration, “who knows, we may have a flotilla of canoes and kayaks,” Blackmer said. The pilgrimage officially ends the next day, July 9, with a final six-mile paddle to Long Island Sound.After that, any river in American could be ripe for the next pilgrimage, if another diocese wants to pick up the New England dioceses’ trailblazing oar.“We’re taking extensive notes as we go through this,” Hirschfeld said. “It would be wonderful if other dioceses and other spiritual organizations could replicate this.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Director of Music Morristown, NJ Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Bath, NC June 2, 2017 at 4:49 pm A wonderful dream has materialized! I’ve enjoyed Connecticut River vistas many times, especially from the bridges in Glastonbury, Falls River, and Haddam (by Goodspeed opera and airport). Not infrequently, as a wetlands consultant, I have the good fortune to land a job by the river, hunting for a rare river birch, micro-anlyzing an eroding shoreline, permitting a dock, and utility right-of-way work. As a CT Botanical Society (CBS) volunteer, I’ve compiled a species list in a silver maple forest for the 3-River Bioblitz in East Haven and led CBS field trips in the Wagunk floodplain meadows in Portland. These riverside habitats are amazing wild places, a treat to botanize in, at their best in early summer. Only once have I canoed the Connecticut River, as part of an impromptu reconnaissance trip in East Haddam, where the pristine Salmon River joins the mainstem, a little flotilla of canoes on a gorgeous day, led by Casper Ultee and Penni Sharp. Like the initiator of this 40-day Episcopal river trip, I have daydreamed about a canoe trip all the way down the CT River, with my extended family. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS

Please enter your email address here Please enter your name here Matthew Fitzpatrick, a candidate for the District 7 seat of the Orange County School Board, announced two endorsements by former Orange County principals. Fitzpatrick is taking on the incumbent Christine Moore, and challengers Isadora Dean, and Laura Rounds. District 7 includes all of Apopka. Fitzpatrick, Moore and Dean are from Apopka. Rounds is from Winter Garden.Dr. Michael Armbruster, a Winter Garden resident and former principal of West Orange, Ocoee, and University High Schools worked with Fitzpatrick and considers him a friend.Matthew Fitzpatrick “As an employee of Orange County Public Schools, it can be difficult to get engaged in school board elections for obvious reasons-you endorse one candidate and another one wins and you may find yourself in an uncomfortable position,” he said. “However, in this election I have to step up and share my support for a good man – Matthew Fitzpatrick – I have had the good fortune to work with “Fitz” in a variety of roles for both of us over the past 11 years and through those experiences, such as cleaning up the Ocoee gym at 4 a.m. after a homecoming dance or dressing in tutus to support the CTE Relay for Life team, we have become close friends.”Dr. John Edwards, a former teacher, principal, and Area Superintendent of OCPS agrees with Armbruster. “My friend Matt Fitzpatrick will make a great school board member! He understands students, parents, teachers and administrators having worked in OCPS at many levels- high school, middle school, district, and career and technical. More importantly he listens and understands. He is running to make a difference, he will cut his salary in half, he is running for all the right reasons. The district is bleeding, losing teachers and administrators in record numbers. I want the bleeding to stop. Matt Fitzpatrick understands what needs to be done. I wholeheartedly endorse Matt Fitzpatrick. I hope you will too!”Election Day for the OCPS Board District 7 seat is August 30th. If no candidate receives a majority of the votes, the top two candidates will runoff against each other on November 8th.

I personally am voting for Ms. Dean, because I pledged support to her, if she chose to run, years and years ago, when she expressed the desire to run them, and was seriously considering running then, but didn’t, but now she is, and is very committed and determined. I personally have known Mrs. Dean, and Mr. Dean a very long time, but I believe you would be good on the school board, as well. I think it is great that the candidates are each getting different endorsements, as it makes the race more exciting. Good luck to you also, Matthew.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Stopping the Indiana Land Grab Tax IssuesLast Tuesday in the Senate Tax & Fiscal Committee, Sen. Luke Kenley (R-Noblesville) presented SB 423 which outlined a new appeal system that would have set up a system of district PTABOAs to provide uniformity and streamlined procedures for taxpayers. Amid concerns from county assessors, the measure moved to an option for counties to form a joint PTABOA to reduce costs and provide consistency. Katrina Hall supported the effort to make the appeals system more responsive to taxpayers who question their assessments. In the House on Thursday, HB 1603, authored by Sen. Ben Smaltz (R- Auburn), was heard by Ways and Means. HB 1603, as introduced, also included a system of district PTABOAs, which was removed by amendment but primarily focused on notifying local taxing units about the impact of appeals so that they can recover shortfalls created by taxpayer refunds. INFB testified to the need for review of the appeals process, but reminded the committee that, if all deadlines are met, the law already allowed for recovery of lost funds. The bill was held for additional amendments.WATER BILLS MOVE IN SENATE COMMITTEE The Senate Environmental Affairs Committee heard two bills related to collecting data about water resources. SB 473, Sen. Charbonneau (R-Valparaiso), will establish a voluntary network for monitoring aquifer levels. Farmers Robert Guenther and Mike Morehouse, both members of the INFB Water Resources Policy Advisory Group, testified in support of the bill and the need to better determine available water resources and impacts from use before any recommendations are made to restrict water use. The bill passed out of committee by a vote of 8-0.A second bill offered by Charbonneau, SB 474, requires collection of information from certain water utilities. Farm Bureau supported this measure as a step to better understanding how water can be provided to rural areas, in which ground water is generally unavailable for any uses, including residential. The bill passed by a vote of 8-0.WINE BILL PASSES SENATE SB 113, Sen. Boots (R-Crawfordsville), passed the Senate by a vote of 40-10. The bill removes the requirements for a face-to-face contact before a winery can ship wine to a customer. The new legislation will allow a winery to ship its products to a customer upon proof of age and under penalty of perjury. It is anticipated that passage of this bill will expand the market for Indiana wines and lead to more wine grape production in the state. Facebook Twitter SHARE Stopping the Indiana Land GrabIndiana cities, towns, and even rural communities are aggressively snatching up Hoosier farmland, and Indiana farmers are fighting back. Annexation is one of the battlegrounds in the Indiana General Assembly that has farmers and local governments at odds. Don Villwock, President of Indiana Farm Bureau, says vast tracts of farmland are being forcibly annexed, “In Hendricks County, the city of Brownsburg wants to annex over 6,000 acres.” He added they do not even have a plan for the land, “It is not like they have some big company wanting to come in and build something.” By Gary Truitt – Feb 2, 2015 Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleIndiana Sheep and Goat Numbers Remian Steady Gary Truitt SHARE In other legislative news: Villwock says it is not only larger cities that are in on the land grab, but even smaller rural communities like Montgomery in Davies County, “They want to annex 900 acres around Montgomery, Indiana, population between 300 and 400; that is about as rural as you can get.” He added the city fathers want the land to help increase the town’s tax base, “They are my poster child for this annexation of farmland issue.” Facebook Twitter Stopping the Indiana Land Grab Farm Bureau has made stopping this forced annexation a top legislative priority during this session, but Villwock admits, it is going to be a tough fight. He said local governments want to hold on to this power and are fighting back against farmers’ efforts to protect their land. “It is going to be a close vote,” he stated.

Tagged with: American Dream Homeownership Homes household HOUSING mortgage PropertyClub Savings Subscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Achieving the American Dream of homeownership has become more expensive than ever, according to a study published by PropertyClub.The study, which analyzed real estate prices in the 50 largest cities across the country over the past 20 years as well as the income required to purchase a home in each city, indicated that cities on the West Coast had become more expensive than ever.For example, in 1999 earning $76,414 per year was enough to afford a home in San Francisco. Today, a household must earn at least $308,763 to buy a home. The study indicated that home prices in the Golden Gate City had risen 304 percent over the past two decades.However, the nation’s capital, Washington, D.C. has seen the highest jump in home prices at 412 percent over the past two decades. New York City, on the other hand, saw a 225 percent increase. The increasing number of government jobs would continue to push the prices in Washington, D.C., the study indicated.Cleveland is the only city where the average price of a single-family home is lower today than in 1999, the study revealed. The average home price in this city in 1999 was $63,600 compared with $54,900 today, a decline of 14 percent.Apart from Cleveland, the study indicated that homebuyers could also look at living in Memphis, Albuquerque, Wichita, and Columbus, all of which have seen only modest home price gains over the past 20 years. In all these cities, the average American household could afford to buy a home in just three years if they saved 30 percent of their income.On the other hand, it would take the average household almost 81 years to be able to afford a home in San Francisco if they saved 30 percent of their annual income. Similarly, it would take 62 years to save enough to buy a home in San Jose, and 43 years in Los Angeles.Click here to read the full study.
