Tullow slides on Ugandan project delay

first_img OIL explorer Tullow faced tough questions over its plans in Uganda yesterday, as shares dipped despite a 152 per cent increase in pre-tax profit in the last six months. Its $10bn (£6.6bn) project on oil fields once owned by Heritage stalled in January, after the Ugandan government disputed Heritage’s capital gains tax payments on the sale. Exploration director Angus McCoss told City A.M. yesterday: “It’s a very short-term situation and we want to make sure that we set the industry off on the right foot in Uganda.”McCoss added: “I think these things are characteristics of a new entrant to the oil industry. We encounter similar problems in other places; it’s the reality of being a frontier explorer.”Tullow, which is led by Aidan Heavey, saw its stock closed down 4.6 per cent at £12.38 after the results announcement raised concerns. “When you get beyond the headline figures you find significant problems in Uganda,” said Doug Youngson, oil analyst at Arbuthnot. “It’s misleading for the company to say this will be resolved in weeks, since it’s been going on for months. And the longer this goes on, the colder the deal gets for its partners Total and CNOOC.” Pre-tax profit more than doubled to $131m (£84.8m) in the six months to 30 June.

There are a handful of stocks in the FTSE 100 that look cheap right now. The Standard Life (LSE: SLA) share price is one of these. Shares in the fund manager have fallen by more than a quarter this year as investor sentiment has soured.However, despite this share price performance, the fundamentals of the investment company have held up relatively well in 2020. As such, the Standard Life share price looks dirt cheap after recent declines.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…Standard Life share price offers value Earlier this year, at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, the Bank of England issued a veiled warning to Standard Life and its peers. The bank wanted these financial services companies to suspend their dividends, to preserve capital in uncertain times.Standard’s management disagreed, and the group pushed ahead with its payout. This seems to have been the right decision. The crisis does not seem to have impacted the group significantly. In fact, it appears investors have been turning to the fund manager in these times of uncertainty.Its latest trading update confirmed that the company had seen net inflows of £1bn in the first four months of 2020. These numbers suggest that the virus outbreak may not have a meaningful impact on the group’s bottom line.That being said, management has warned the crisis will slow down its efforts to cut unnecessary costs across the group. This could have an impact on the Standard Life share price in the short term. But it is unlikely to be a significant long-term drawback.If there is a second wave of coronavirus, then the company may have to take evasive action. Nevertheless, for the time being, it seems as if Standard Life is coping well in the crisis.The company has also been selling its stake in Indian business HDFC Life this year. Standard Life holds 10.27% of the Indian firm, worth around £1.1bn, but in recent months the group has been selling down this position and returning the cash to investors with share buybacks.These repurchases have helped support the share price and provide capital to sustain the company’s dividend yield.The additional cash provided from the sale of this overseas investment should support investor sentiment towards the Standard Life share price.Future growthAfter recent declines, the Standard Life share price now supports a dividend yield of just over 8%. This is significantly above its historical average of around 5%, suggesting that the stock offers a margin of safety at current levels.Indeed, when company dividend yields rise significantly above their historical average levels, it may be a sign that the investment is undervalued.As such, now could be the perfect time to snap upna share of this FTSE 100 dividend champion at a discounted price. The dividend yield of 8% seems safe for the time being, and the stock appears to be undervalued compared to its historical multiples. Rupert Hargreaves owns shares in Standard Life Aberdeen.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) center_img All smiles: Will Quins fans still be smiling after Saturday’s game?By Bea Asprey, Rugby World Writer THE FIRST of this weekend’s Aviva Premiership semi-finals will see Harlequins and Northampton battle it out at the Twickenham Stoop. Neither team has competed in a league final before, but nor are they strangers to knock-out rugby, with both having competed in European finals last season. And having missed out on the latter stages of this year’s Heineken Cup, both sides will be fully focused on getting to Twickenham on 26 May.Sibling rivalryLast weekend’s round 22 games handed victories to both teams, but also cost Quins Danny Care, who picked up an injury against Sale. However, with England’s Lee Dickson in the Saints’ starting XV, who could be better to take him on than his brother Karl, who starts for Quins and also trained with England during the Six Nations. Northampton will be without Courtney Lawes and Tom Wood, both due to injury, while Dylan Hartley and Calum Clark are serving suspensions, while Quins are also missing winger Ugo Monye who is out with a hamstring injury.Catch up While Harlequins’ season has been a success story from beginning to end, with the Londoners finishing the regular season at the top of the table for the first time in the professional era, the Saints have been left playing catch up. They left it late to cement their position in the table’s fourth spot, with a victory over Exeter three weeks ago, and although they secured a bonus point in the final round of the competition their form has fluctuated this season. Furthermore, although they reached the semi-finals of the league last year and the year before, they have fallen at this hurdle each time, and Quins have displayed more of a cut throat, winning mentality this term.Challenger: Brown is after Foden’s England shirtRose at stake As well as the battle of the Dickson brothers, Mike Brown v Ben Foden, who makes his 100th appearance for the Saints, at full-back will be a fascinating contest. Furthermore, coming up against Tonga’uiha, Long and Mujati will be a good test for young England tourists Marler and Gray, who are joined by the Samoan Johnston in the front row.Verdict Click below to see a day in the life of a Harlequin!last_img read more
