Why is the Rolls-Royce share price falling?

first_img Image source: Getty Images. Over the last month or so the Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price has fallen nearly 15%. That’s worse than the 5% of the FTSE 100. Over 12 months the fall is 60%. So why have the shares continued to fall? Should investors be worried? Reasons for the Rolls-Royce share price declineNew variants of Covid are a source of concern. Although the UK is doing well with the vaccine rollout, many other countries are struggling and there are supply constraints, as the EU/AstraZeneca row highlighted.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…And the UK, South Africa and Brazil variations have all reignited pandemic concerns. That has implications for travel and, by extension, for Rolls-Royce.A January trading update from the engineer has probably also weighed on the share price. The company revised down forecasts for widebody engine flying hours to 55% of 2019 levels from a 70% estimate last October. It added to this by saying that it expected to lose £2bn in cash as a result. Cashflow was something it was looking to improve, so the setback, while understandable in the context of Covid-19, is still disappointing.Yet emerging technologies like modular nuclear power and electric aircraft could offer a way forward for Rolls-Royce and boost the shares. But for now, the virus dictates the future of the Rolls-Royce share price. The company can invest in nuclear, marine and other industries to offset some of the aviation losses, but investors (including me) still seem concerned about the company’s flying prospects in the short term, at least.What I plan to do about this potential value shareI’m also a little concerned. Even in light of the Rolls-Royce share price being cheaper than it was a month ago and far less than it was a year ago, I’ll avoid the shares. For me they carry too much risk, and a recovery is too fragile.In some ways RR resembles a value share, as it has fallen so much in the wake of challenging trading conditions and the its poor financial performance. With multiple problems to contend with, I’d rather invest in some shares with strong growth potential, rather than the volatile Rolls-Royce share price.An alternative FTSE 100 shareOne share that I’d rather invest in is the high-yielding insurer, Aviva (LSE: AV). A new CEO is slimming down the business, which should make it easier to manage, and perhaps even attract a takeover from a larger company. That’s happened within the industry, for example with RSA Insurance, so there is a precedent. The shares have a dividend yield of 3.79% and it also seems to show signs of being good value with a P/E of just five. As a financial share it was particularly hard hit in the sell-off about 12 months ago. That means there’s plenty of room for a share price recovery if the economy improves, I think. On the downside there’s a risk it could underperform if the economy remains weak. Also, its disposals mean it’s now more reliant on the UK and Ireland for earnings so any poor performance here could hurt the share price. Overall though, I’d prefer to add Aviva shares to my portfolio as the Rolls-Royce share price still looks very volatile.   Andy Ross owns no share mentioned.

FTSE 100: one of the best cheap UK shares to buy before the ISA deadline!

Royston Wild | Tuesday, 16th March, 2021 | More on: BKG FTSE 100: one of the best cheap UK shares to buy before the ISA deadline! “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Prices of UK shares continue to struggle as concerns over the fight against Covid-19 rolls on. Virus cases on a global basis are moving higher again and it could be a long time before the back of the pandemic has been broken. Naturally, hopes of a strong economic recovery are looking shakier than they did at the start of 2021.Clearly, UK share investors need to do their homework before buying for their Stocks and Shares ISA. Sure, the 5 April deadline might be just around the corner. But rushing to beat the cut-off date for the £20,000 ISA allowance without doing proper research could end up costing investors in the long run. Aside from Covid-19, other issues like resurgent trade tensions and soaring global inflation could also significantly harm shareholder returns in 2021, and possibly beyond.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…I buy stocks on the basis of making great investment profits over the long haul (say at least a decade). And I think there are many top-quality UK shares that have the strength to ride through this tough period for the world economy and deliver excellent returns over the next decade.A big opportunity for UK share investors?I think investing in UK housebuilders could be a great way to try and make money over the next decade. Homes demand in Britain is soaring past supply and I don’t expect this theme to run out of steam any time soon.It’s not just huge government support and low interest rates that are helping drive demand for Britain’s newbuilds though. Intensifying competition among mortgage lenders is also boosting the attractiveness, not to mention the affordability, of buying a home. This week, Yorkshire Bank announced it was bringing back 95% mortgages for first-time buyers. The competitive landscape has also led to the first 40-year fixed-rate mortgage being launched in the UK too.A FTSE 100 starI think The Berkeley Group (LSE: BKG) is a top UK share to buy to latch onto this phenomenon. This builder focuses on the red-hot London market and it has a gigantic land bank which should support build rates beyond 2030 too. The business added an extra four sites to its land holdings in the six months to October, providing space for an extra 2,800 homes. Today, the FTSE 100 company trades on an undemanding forward price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 15 times. It sports a dividend yield north of 4% for this year too.Remember though, that any change to the supportive government policy later this decade could damage the broader homes market. Ideas like the Help to Buy equity loan programme and the Stamp Duty holiday have given home sales a significant boost in recent times. And this could have a significant impact on demand for The Berkeley Group’s newbuilds. That said, I still think the potential benefits outweigh the risks.  Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild has no position in any of the shares mentioned.

New construction starts increased 11 percent in March from February to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $785.2 billion, according to Dodge Data & Analytics. The impressive growth spurt reverses mild declines in January (down 2 percent) and February (down 3 percent) and ramps up total construction starts to the highest level recorded over the past six months, the company reported.Residential construction remained stable for single-family homes on a month over month basis. However, multifamily housing pulled down the overall construction for residences 2 percent in March. For the full year though, residential construction grew 7 percent with single-family housing increasing 4 percent and multifamily housing rising 12 percent from the same period last year. Total construction starts for the first quarter (January to March 2018) on an unadjusted basis totaled $167.3 billion, a 7 percent drop from 2017. Measured on a 12-month moving basis, total construction starts for the 12 months ending this past March were up 1 percent compared with the 12-month period ending in March 2017.When it comes to the Dodge Index, the March numbers resulted in a 166 reading (2,000 = 100), up from 150 in February. Throughout Q1 2018, the index averaged 157, up 2 percent from the 154 average inked in Q4 2017 but a trifle below the 161 average for full-year 2017.“This type of data roller-coaster often occurs when construction reaches a mature stage of expansion, trailed by a slower growth rate,” said Robert A. Murray, Chief Economist for Dodge Data & Analytics.  “Looking at the data on a quarterly basis can reduce the volatility present in the monthly statistics,” he said. “This year’s first quarter shows a continuation of the up-and-down pattern that’s been present over the past year—first quarter 2017 up 10 percent, second quarter 2017 down 6 percent, third quarter 2017 up 8 percent, fourth quarter 2017 down 9 percent, and now first-quarter 2018 up 2 percent.” Slowing expansion doesn’t necessarily make for an imminent decline, and several factors will help construction stick close to recent levels, he notes, including a host of upcoming public works programs, a healthy economy, and moderately rising interest rates.
