For investors, the UK telecoms sector has presented immense challenges. Having boomed in the 1990s, mainly on the back of mobile telephony growth rates, telecom shares subsequently fell back sharply, as major debt concerns predominated. With Cable & Wireless (C & W) having exited, the UK sector now consists of little more than British Telecom (BT), privatised in 1984, and Vodafone, which was founded in the early 1980s.

Although 2020 will probably go down in history as one of the most challenging years experienced during our lifetime, it will also likely be chronicled as one of the best years for the recognition and appreciation of science. As we entered 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic was in its infancy. However, it rapidly evolved through the exponential rise in infections and mortality globally. Much has been achieved during the past 12 months in the fight against COVID-19, but, as we enter 2021, there are consi

Agronomics is an investment company, making selective investments in early-stage alternative protein companies. We believe the combination of the conservative approach to calculating a reported net asset value (NAV) and growing interest in the broader alternative protein and cultured meat opportunities has resulted in Agronomics' shares trading at a c320% premium to its latest reported NAV per share value. Our analysis suggests that not only can this premium be justified but that upside exists b

NextEnergy Solar’s NAV reflects a reduction in long term pricing offset by continued operating outperformance. While long term pricing remains an issue across the renewable yieldco sector, we continue to see NESF as better placed thanks to its non-amortising debt. It is also showing that its energy sales relationship with NextEnergy Capital is delivering strong hedging positions which should benefit the company going forward. On top of this the company has a range of opportunities to develop and

NextEnergy Solar Fund’s (NESF) NAV has declined to 98.9p, as at 31 March 2021, from 100.7p as at 31 December 2020, after incorporating a further reduction in power price forecasts provided by NESF’s three independent consultants (-2.1p per share) and an expected rise in the UK corporation tax rate rising to 25% from 2023 (-1.8p per share). These were partly offset by NESF’s operating outperformance, the acquisition of the 100MW Camden portfolio which was financed by a drawdown on the existing cr

The key messages we take from RECI’s April’s quarterly investor updateand end-March 2021 factsheet are i) mark-to-market (MTM) writedowns in March 2020 proved overly conservative, and RECI has been making recoveries since, ii) with no defaults, RECI’s assets have proved highly resilient (this is no accident, but reflects the different way in which the assets are managed to other lenders, and iii) as expected, RECI’s bond portfolio provided significant liquidity at only a modest cost.
