Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. It’s been another bad day for the FTSE 100 so far. This morning, the index slid another 120 points (2%). As traditional summer ‘market fatigue’ takes hold, it’s not been a great day for ITV (LSE: ITV) to release its latest results.ITV could exit the FTSE 100As I write, ITV shares trade at 60.34p, down 0.56p (0.9%) from yesterday’s close, having dropped as low as 57.62p earlier today. This leaves this FTSE 100 share down 43.3% over the past 12 months.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…What’s more, this near-halving of ITV’s share price takes its market value to just £2.45bn. That makes it one of the FTSE 100’s smallest members. Thus, it is highly likely that the media group will be ejected in the next quarterly index reshuffle.ITV’s revenues slumpBeing ejected from the FTSE 100 is probably the least of ITV’s worries, because the business is reeling from Covid-19. Indeed, the TV broadcaster has suffered the biggest collapse in advertising revenues in its 65-year history.Viewing figures rose 4% during lockdown, which is good for ITV, but advertising revenues plunged by 43% in the second quarter. However, this trend is improving fast, with revenues down 42% in June, but only 23% in July. One factor in this fall was the coronavirus-driven cancellation of hit reality-TV show Love Island.Thanks to collapsing advertising income and production shutdowns, ITV’s half-year revenues sank by a sixth (17%) to £1.22bn. This caused adjusted operating profits to halve to £165m and earnings per share to plummet 53% to 2.9p (from 6.2p).As a result, the FTSE 100 firm axed its interim dividend (2.6p a share last year).This FTSE 100 firm still has a futureITV remains the UK’s biggest commercial free-to-air broadcaster, operating six channels. It is also growing Britbox, an ITV+BBC streaming service, which will be boosted by the return of satirical puppet show Spitting Image.Today, Carolyn McCall, ITV’s chief executive, commented: “We are seeing an upward trajectory, with productions restarting and advertisers returning.” For example, of 230 productions hit by lockdown, around 70% have been delivered or are back on track.What’s more, this FTSE 100 (for now) firm has a strong balance sheet and easy access to liquidity. Net debt has actually fallen more than a third (34.5%) to £783m, from £1,195m a year ago. In addition, ITV has access to £1,214m of liquidity (consisting of £385m in cash, a £630m revolving credit facility and an additional £199m facility). Trust me, I think ITV is solid.Don’t change the channel on ITVOver the past 52 weeks, ITV shares peaked at 165.9p on 13 December and plunged to just 50.06p on 23 March, during the market meltdown. Thus, they have fallen more than £1 from their 2019/20 high, but are barely 20% above their lockdown low.It’s difficult to predict, but the shares are valued somewhere between 4.25 and 5 times earnings. That’s very cheap, especially when you consider that the full-year, pre-Covid-19 dividend was expected to be 8p a share. What’s more, ITV is a perennial candidate for takeover by larger rivals. For me, the shares are simply too cheap. I’d buy this FTSE 100 stock today and await future growth and the return of dividends.

249 total views, 1 views today International animal welfare charity Brooke has introduced a new approach to inspiring and retaining its mid-value audience of supporters. Until recently it had experienced declining response rates from this group of supporters, sometimes down by a half.The charity asked GOOD Agency to help improve its approach to engaging with this audience.GOOD’s research found that many of these supporters did not like:to feel that they were “ringfenced” into a club together with people they didn’t knowto be given a labelto be given particularly special treatmentInstead, they said that they wanted:the opportunity to feel part of something where they could make a significant difference to the suffering animals they cared passionately about.direct communications that made them feel closer to the work in the field, and closer to the teamand to feel part of a collective endeavour. Tribe funding campaignBased on this research GOOD and Brooke have introduced a ‘tribe funding’ initiative that invited mid-value supporters and prospects to choose which of three Brooke projects they wanted to fund.Brooke invited donors to choose a project to supportThis had the added benefit of driving more donors online, a secondary objective of Brooke’s brief to GOOD.The first of the new communications was a teaser email, sent in April 2017. This was followed by a pack that invited supporters to pick from three projects to support from three different countries. In each of these the case for support was made by the key members of the team who could make change happen for the animals if they joined them: owners, local vets, community champions and Brooke staff.Supporters were then directed online to the tribe funding pages for more project content and a running total of the project funding. Finally, a reminder mailing included photographs with handwritten notes from Brooke staff in the field to bring supporters even closer to the cause.Annie Moreton, Senior Fundraising Planner at GOOD, said: “With tangible objectives and items their donations could fund, supporters could make an informed decision in addition to those which struck a chord with them emotionally.”Jane Bond, Direct Marketing Manager at Brooke, said: “This project is all about providing supporters with updates on the work in action, and connecting them directly to the impact that their support will make and the people that will make it happen. We are thrilled with how it has been received. It has been our most successful appeal in the past two years; receiving an average response rate of over 9% for the main pack and is on track to double the target by campaign close; raising over £130,000.”The charity is planning to run a similar campaign in 2018. Meanwhile, existing donors are continuing to receive tailored email updates on the projects that they fund.

News As doubt persists on North Korea’s “zero” coronavirus cases, RSF urges for transparency Organisation April 24, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Two American women journalists to be tried soon News North KoreaAsia – Pacific Campaigns Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders condemns the North Korean government’s decision to charge and try the two American reporters, Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who were arrested at the Chinese border on 17 March. They are accused of entering the country illegally, spying and “hostile activities,” but in reality they were just trying to report the fate of North Korean refugees at the border.“We deplore the way the authorities are treating these two women as criminals when in fact they were just doing their job as journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said. “There is every reason to fear that North Korea’s opaque judicial system will not give them due process. But we hope the country’s leaders will heed the many calls for their release.”North Korea’s official KCNA news agency announced in a brief dispatch today: “A competent organ of the DPRK (North Korea) concluded the investigation into the journalists of the United States. The organ formally decided to refer them to a trial on the basis of the confirmed crimes committed by them.”If found guilty, Ling and Lee face up to 10 years of forced labour. Article 63 of the penal code regarding “crimes” against North Korea provides for jail terms of five to ten years for foreigners gathering information inside the country. They work for the San Francisco-based online television station Current TV.Around 1,500 journalists and bloggers have already signed a petition in support of Ling and Lee that was launched by Reporters Without Borders and the International Women’s Media Foundation.
