Is the IAG share price too cheap for ISA investors to ignore?

It’s been a tough year for International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG). Being part of the aviation industry, it has seen consumer demand fall through the floor since the end of Q1. Even with some national lockdown restrictions lifted, reports show that demand for air travel is nowhere near where it needs to be for airlines to be optimistic. As a result, the IAG share price sits below 100p, having started the year above 250p.

In the latest development, the boss of British Airways (owned by IAG) is leaving with immediate effect. Alex Cruz’s departure follows Willie Walsh announcing he’s stepping down as head of the group shortly. The IAG share price has been choppy in the aftermath of the Cruz news, with it closing down 4% yesterday.

For some companies, the only response to the pandemic has been to hunker down and try to avoid running out of cash before their customers can return.

Pret, the 37-year-old British sandwich and coffee chain that’s ubiquitous in central London, is now clearly willing to try anything, Eshe Nelson reports:

  • Pret wants to sell its food in supermarkets, and has already begun selling coffee beans on Amazon.com.

  • It has signed up to all the major food delivery platforms to bring its sandwiches, soups and salads to its work-from-home customers.

  • It opened a so-called dark kitchen in North London to prepare its food strictly for delivery, modeled on the success of Sweetgreen and Shake Shack,

The newly created “climate league 2030” is calling on investors, insurers, banks and companies to sign up to a goal of reducing national emissions by at least 230m tonnes a year more than the government forecasts by 2030.

It is equivalent to about a 45% cut by 2030 compared with the 2005 benchmark used by the government – the minimum short-term target recommended by the government’s Climate Change Authority for Australia to play its part in keeping average global heating below 2C. They say action is needed now to put the country on a path to net zero emissions by
