Why did the Alphawave share price crash 20% on IPO?

Why did the Alphawave share price crash 20% on IPO? Get the full details on this £5 stock now – while your report is free. Alphawave (LSE: AWE) took a brave gamble floating on the London Stock Exchange on Thursday. The Canadian computer chip designer shunned the Nadaq in New York, which is a natural home for high-tech companies, and plumped for a listing in the UK. But within hours of its introduction at 410p, the Alphawave share price had crashed by 24%.The shares did recover some of the loss by the time the market closed, ending on a 10% drop.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…But why such a disappointing start to life as a quoted company? Some commentators have suggested it’s a reflection of a lack of appetite for tech stocks among UK investors, and that London is hostile to new high-tech ventures.Or are flotations like this usually led by US investors, who are focused on their home markets and don’t go for overseas listings?Why I don’t buy at IPOPerhaps it’s just a UK aversion to IPOs in general. We do, as it happens, have a record of some spectacular flops. The one uppermost in my mind is Aston Martin Lagonda, which came to market in London in 2018. Never mind the 20% fall for the Alphawave share price, Aston Martin went into a prompt nosedive. Within its first two years, its shares lost 90% of their initial value.Then, more recently, we had Deliveroo and another impressive slump. Since its market debut at the end of March, Deliveroo shares are down 40%.The great majority of flotations I’ve seen in my time have been in negative territory a year later — often alarmingly sooner. So why are stock flotations in the UK apparently such poison?Generally, I won’t buy at IPO. The reason is they aren’t intended to benefit me, the buyer. No, the intention is to raise as much cash for the current owners as possible. And the timing and pricing are set to try to maximise that.With Alphawave, the timing comes during a period of global chip shortages and rising demand. But if the timing looks good, that suggests the initial Alphawave share price was wrong.Alphawave share price steadying?But by the standards of many I’ve seen, I reckon Alphawave is actually off to a fairly decent start. The first day did begin badly, but I’m buoyed by seeing the pull-back later in the day. That close just 10% down suggests there’s a reasonable bit of support for the Alphawave share price out there, and the longer-term could be a lot better.So would I buy Alphawave now? Well, I haven’t had a tech stock in my portfolio for some time, and that’s a gap I’d like to fill. The growing demand and increasing chip shortages could mean a good future for designers and suppliers in the industry too.The problem with Alphawave is that I don’t have any fundamental valuations to go on. And I’d prefer to wait and see how the Alphawave share price settles too, at least over the next few months. But I do think it has potential… and it’s on my watch list.

Springboks confirm long term commitment to Rugby Championship

first_imgWednesday Nov 4, 2020 Springboks confirm long term commitment to Rugby Championship South Africa have committed to the Rugby Championship after withdrawing from the 2020 tournament. The Springboks, who had been the subject of reports that they were looking to join the Six Nations in 2024 after the next World Cup, will be part of a new-look 12-match tournament format also involving Argentina, Australia and New Zealand.ADVERTISEMENTSouth Africa withdrew from the 2020 edition of the Rugby Championship due to fears over player welfare amid the coronavirus pandemic, leaving the others to compete in the Tri Nations Series.“We welcome the changes announced to the Castle Lager Rugby Championship with our SANZAAR partners and we are looking forward to see what the new strategic plan for the competition entails, with possible international expansion on the cards,” SA Rugby’s chief executive Jurie Roux told the Union’s official website.“Although we had to change our domestic focus, we still have a long history with the All Blacks and Wallabies as well as a long-standing friendship with the Pumas and we look forward to more world-class Test rugby.“Ever since the Tri-Nations was first contested in 1996, and more recently the Castle Lager Rugby Championship from 2012, a team from the southern hemisphere has won the Rugby World Cup five out of six times – which is testimony to the high quality of Test rugby played on this side of the equator.”SANZAAR chief executive Andy Marinos said: “The re-commitment by the four unions to the long-term future of the international game is an important start as we embark in a new direction for both the unions and the organisation over the coming years.”Argentina, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand will play each other home and away through the new mini-tour match schedule that was adopted in 2019.ADVERTISEMENTRELATED VIDEO: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.

The focal point of the project is a concrete waffle shaped roof, which sits aloft the new living area. Its pre-fabricated peaks and troughs create trenches for rooftop planting, softening the volume, establishing a connection with the leafy surroundings and creating pleasing views from the floors above. From the garden, the roof trenches are out of sight, giving the immediate effect of a simple concrete slab, which contrasts with the texture of the original building. Save this picture!© Ben BlossomThe underside of the new roof is exposed to create the living room ceiling, its pronounced ‘beams’ created by the sunken roof planters above. The motion of the waffle ceiling creates a satisfying rhythm, which also offers a logical position for a substantial skylight that traverses the full width of the extension. Save this picture!SectionThis strip of natural light illuminates the kitchen, which would otherwise be overcast by its position, set back within the footprint of the original house. Bureau de Change Director Billy Mavropoulos said: ‘We wanted to create a volume, whose form would be meaningful both inside and out. Inside, the motion of the roof slab breaks up the minimal surfaces of living area. Outside, it creates appealing views through hollows and humps, which bring nature and concrete into immediate proximity.Save this picture!© Ben BlossomAlthough the living and kitchen areas are open plan, a selective palette of materials has been used to visually define these spaces and create an atmospheric contrast. In the living area, the materiality of the ceiling is echoed in concrete flooring, which stretches to meet the threshold of the kitchen. There, it creeps up the face of the kitchen island and turns back on itself to create a sculptural addition, in the form of a breakfast bar. Save this picture!PlanThe boundary of the kitchen is marked graphically, by a transition into rich monochromatic blue that floods the surfaces of the space, including its resin floor. The concrete appears to force its way into the kitchen’s footprint, creating a pathway around which the resin floor wraps. Within the kitchen, monolithic volumes have a masking effect, concealing ample storage on one side and a cloakroom on the other. This allows the monochrome quality of the space to take the lead. Door edges are cleaved back to create geometric insets, which form handles, and whose elongated shape are repeated on the ceiling to create embedded lighting. Save this picture!© Ben BlossomProduct Description. Although the living and kitchen areas are open plan, a selective palette of materials has been used to visually define these spaces and create an atmospheric contrast.

Boston school bus drivers step up the fight

first_imgGarry Murchison, Steve Kirschbaum, Andre Francois, Steve GillisThe struggle between the Boston School Bus Drivers Union, Steelworkers Local 8751, on the one hand, and the Boston city administration and the international union-busting corporation Veolia — now renamed Transdev — on the other, is being taken to new heights.The union’s new leadership, elected April 30, is bringing the demands of rank-and-file workers to the forefront. These demands center around 700 unresolved grievances, unfair labor practice charges against Veolia, winning a just contract and the company’s GPS/telematics surveillance of drivers that breaks the existing contract. A key workers’ demand is the reinstatement of four fired leaders who have been off the job for 22 months.The four fired leaders — President Andre Francois, Vice President Steve Kirschbaum, Financial Secretary Steve Gillis and Grievance Chair Garry Murchison — were elected to these key positions by a wide margin in April.Long hours of negotiations have transpired between the new leadership and Veolia, the city, and the Boston Public Schools. The union has brought its fighting spirit to the negotiating table, using struggle tactics to further its goals. Developments are coming by the minute, so the union hasn’t had a moment to breathe between punches.Bus yard rallies and picket lines, a regular occurrence, have brought the fight straight to Veolia’s headquarters. An occupation of the Freeport bus yard by the entire executive board on June 22 lasted nearly nine hours — the last two while police were threatening to evict them.“We were holding company officials in near round-the-clock meetings regarding mass noncompliance with the contract, including use of GPS and other telematic technology to route buses and pay drivers less, and Mayor Walsh’s administration was scabbing out some of our work to non-union outfits,” Gillis explained. “These meetings came in the wake of a Boston Globe investigative report about BPS/Veolia’s record of late bus routes based on GPS routing, leading up to a scheduled contract negotiations session.”Freeport is the same bus yard where Stevan Kirschbaum was framed up on four felony charges during a demonstration last year. Kirschbaum was declared innocent in court this year, winning his case with the help of fellow workers and solidarity from the community.On June 25, the union held more spirited rallies in all four bus yards.Then on June 27 Veolia issued what the union called “a declaration of war.” The union received an illegal, fraudulent “last best offer” from the company, stating that if the membership did not accept this ultimatum by July 10 the drivers would not receive retroactive pay that had previously been agreed to. These pay increases date back to July 1, 2014, when the old contract expired.This so-called offer, which violates several labor laws, includes the following concessions to management: introduction of spy cameras on the buses, elimination of one of two health care plans, increased discipline and erosion of language guaranteeing flat rate pay protection. Veolia, Boston Public Schools and Mayor Walsh also stubbornly refuse to reinstate the four illegally fired leaders.So the company ultimatum was a shamelessly transparent attempt to entice and threaten members to accept a bad contract and turn their backs on their leaders.City concedes two vital points, but not VeoliaLocal 8751 has no truck with any of this. On June 29, another marathon session/occupation took place at City Hall with the mayor’s lawyer, Paul Curran, and Chief Operating Officer of BPS Kim Rice. That ended when the city made the following two concessions: they told the union the threat to take away retroactive pay was a mistake, and the Union Security Agreement protecting jobs, seniority and 40 years of collective bargaining gains would continue.Expressing their rock-solid solidarity, community leaders who joined these negotiations included veteran City Councilor Charles Yancey; activist Chuck Turner; Sandra MacIntosh, of Coalition for Equal Quality Education; Charles Clemons, of TOUCH 106.1 radio; Haitian community leader Jean Claude Sanon; and representatives of the International Action Center, Women’s Fightback Network and Massachusetts United Against Police Violence.Less than an hour later, however, Veolia reinstituted the threat, overriding what BPS and City Hall conceded to. Veolia’s double-cross was not only a slap in the face to the union, but to its community supporters. Veolia is refusing to bargain in good faith, which constitutes an unfair labor practice.But it proves the Marxist truth: Capitalists tell the government what to do, not the other way around.In an attempt to further intimidate the workers into accepting its rotten “offer,” Veolia mailed a five-page letter, in Haitian and Cape Verdean Creole, Spanish and English, to workers’ homes.“Veolia is running amok with a series of warlike communications and actions,” said Kirschbaum. These include threatening hundreds of workers, laid off for the summer, with discharge if they do not report for a “mandatory recall” to bid on summer work.The new player in negotiations is Veolia’s vice president for labor relations, Thomas P. Hock, notorious for his role in the Bay Area Regional Transit strike of 2013 during which two workers died. Hock, whose Cincinnati-based law firm has engaged in professional union busting in mass transit for 40-plus years, is president and founder of Professional Transit Management. PTM’s Northeast regional manager is also Veolia’s General Manager Alex Roman. In addition to breaking unions, PTM is the subject of numerous complaints of racist discrimination and sexual harassment.Solidarity in action Despite having to fight for its own survival, Local 8751 continues to uphold its rich legacy of politically active unionism. Local 8751 poured out for the Haitian flag day parade on May 17, proclaiming support for Fanmi Lavalas candidate for the Haitian presidency, Dr. Marcis Narcisse. On June 13, they marched in Pride, showing the unwavering support for the lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer community from one of the first unions in the United States to win contractual anti-discrimination rights for lesbian, gay and bi workers. Trans rights will be included in the new contract.One day after Local 8751 picketed Veolia headquarters on June 18, they were in the streets again for Juneteenth to “Say no to racism, police murder and violence, racist terror from Boston to Charleston to Baltimore to Ohio!”This is the activism the company-friendly former union officials tried to use against the Francois-Kirschbaum slate in the election. “It backfired,” said Kirschbaum. “Team Solidarity, with its militant, class-conscious program and tactics, swept all 18 leadership positions by a landslide. Our record of struggle provided the best antidote for the poison of red baiting!”The situation is changing day by day, but the rank and file are ready to strike and have spoken as one: “No  amnesty, no contract, justice — no work!”Veolia has made a calculated effort to bleed the four fired leaders dry. The workers and leadership haven’t blinked in the face of this onslaught. Their reserves are running low, however. These leaders need solidarity and financial support now more than ever. Anything supporters can contribute will be repaid in the struggle tenfold. To send money online, go to tinyurl.com/mzbfdyu. Or send checks to Friends of the School Bus 5, P.O.

Nike: ‘Do the right thing’

first_imgDec. 9 protest.Portland, Ore. A protest erupted at Nike’s international headquarters here on Dec. 9 when over 400 workers demanded better treatment for women by male supervisors and a name change to the newly renovated Alberto Salazar building.Salazar, head coach for the prestigious Nike Oregon Project, trains Olympic-bound runners. In September, Salazar was banned from coaching for four years for illegally doping and trafficking testosterone. In October, the Nike project was shut down. Nike CEO Mark Parker had been in close communication with Salazar to see if topical testosterone would trigger a positive drug test.Former Nike athlete Mary Cain, once called the “fastest girl in the world,” says Salazar was banned because of the doping scandal, but that he should have been banned because of his treatment of women.In 2018 women in the company led an internal uprising over repeated harassment by male supervisors who made vulgar, degrading comments to women workers. Former Project members, including Cain and Amanda Begley, have now come forward to expose the toxic culture created by the all-male coaching team.In 2013, 16-year-old Cain was signed by Nike and began training with Salazar. “I joined Nike because I wanted to become the best female athlete ever,” said Cain in a 2019 New York Times Op-ed video series about women athletes. “Instead I was emotionally and physically abused in a system designed by Alberto and endorsed by Nike.” Cain was ordered to take birth control pills and diuretics to keep her weight to 114 pounds: “They were convinced that in order to get better I had to get thinner.”Elite women athletes and dancers who reduce their body fat below 22 percent run the risk of compromising their health, with problems such as amenorrhea (abnormal loss of a menstrual cycle) and RED-S syndrome — energy depletion that affects metabolic rate, bone health, immunity, protein synthesis and cardiovascular health.Cain experienced amenorrhea and broke bones during her Nike training. Tests on Begley revealed her body fat was only 11 to 12 percent.  Cain and Begley said Salazar weighed them publicly and shamed them as being “too fat” if they gained weight. In 2015, Cain began having suicidal thoughts and started cutting herself. Salazar and the staff psychologist, who was not certified, ignored her when she spoke of the problems. Cain then decided to quit the team and stop trying to make the Olympics.Dream crazyWhen Alysia Montaño, one of the top three female runners in the world, announced she was going to have a baby, Nike paused her contract and stopped paying her health insurance. This was in addition to her losing her sponsors during that time.“Getting pregnant is the kiss of death for a female athlete,” said Phoebe Wright, a runner sponsored by Nike from 2010 through 2016. Nike company flyers distributed at the Dec. 9  protest warned Nike workers they would be fired if they spoke to the media. It is typical policy for sponsors to make athletes sign confidentiality clauses to prevent them from fighting for change.Other company flyers at the protest thanked the protesters for “walking with Nike” to celebrate what women bring to sports and to champion equality. Flyers also claimed that company management was committed to face-to-face time with workers to share ideas.“Nike tells us to dream crazy; we say how about you stop treating our pregnancies like injuries,” said Montaño. “Then they tell us to believe in something; we say how about maternity leave? How about when you tell my daughter she can achieve anything, you back it up.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
