Instead, the money raised will be poured back into Treasury coffers to support the public finances.The CRC, introduced in April, is designed to target the UK’s largest businesses and public sector bodies by forcing them to purchase carbon allowances if they use over 6,000 MWh of electricity per year.However, the original scheme acted as an incentive to big firms to improve their energy efficiency record, since revenue raised from the allowances was set to be recycled back to organisations on a declining scale based on their carbon performance.Industry figures yesterday warned that scrapping plans to recycle revenue back to organisations would turn the scheme into a stealth tax and would no longer incentivise firms to try and reduce emissions.Roman Webber, Deloitte’s UK renewable energy head, said the measure came as a “big shock” to the industry. “It was unexpected and may turn a previously revenue neutral scheme into a carbon tax,” he said.Stephen Robertson, director-general of the British Retail Consortium, said he was “surprised and dismayed” at the move, which he said would hit retailers particularly hard since they use a lot of property.City organisations which operate from expansive properties designed to accommodate large numbers of staff will also be adversely affected. Many firms have already put in place schemes to bring down their carbon emissions, including installing solar panels or greenery on rooftops. Share whatsapp Wednesday 20 October 2010 8:31 pm

Cineworld’s share price is down 80% in 2020. Should you buy now for the rebound? Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Edward Sheldon owns shares in Hargreaves Lansdown. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Hargreaves Lansdown. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Cineworld (LSE: CINE) shares are getting plenty of attention at the moment. Last week, it was one of the most bought UK stocks on the Hargreaves Lansdown platform.It’s not hard to see why investor interest in the firm is high right now. Year to date, the Cineworld share price is down around 80% due to the coronavirus. This share price fall is attracting value hunters.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…Should you follow the herd and pile into the shares in the hope of a rebound? Let’s take a look at the investment case.Can Cineworld’s share price rebound?Earlier in the year, cinemas across the world were forced to close after governments imposed lockdowns to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Cineworld closed its entire estate of 787 cinemas in 10 countries.Now, however, cinemas are slowly reopening. Here in the UK, Cineworld’s cinemas in England and Wales are open. Cinemas in Ireland, Jersey, and Scotland are expected to open from 26 August.Meanwhile, in the US, Regal Cinemas (which Cineworld owns) has said it plans to reopen its locations on 21 August. This is an encouraging development for Cineworld.However, the reopening of its cinemas may not be straightforward. Firstly, the company needs to convince customers to come back. In Europe, where the group has already been able to open some cinemas, customers have been slow to return.Secondly, another wave of Covid-19 – the number one risk fund managers are concerned about – could completely derail the group’s progress.So the way I see it, the case for the shares ultimately comes down to what you believe will happen with Covid-19.If we see a vaccine in the near term, there’s a good chance Cineworld’s share price will rebound. If we see a second wave of Covid-19, however, the shares could crash lower.Debt adds riskIt’s worth noting that Cineworld has a large amount of debt on its balance sheet. As of 31 December 2019, the group had net debt of $3.5bn on its books.This certainly adds risk to the investment case. Ratings agency Moody’s has a ‘negative’ outlook on the stock.Hedge funds are bearishIt’s also worth noting that the firm is the second most shorted stock on the London Stock Exchange at the moment. Currently, short interest stands at a high 9.5%.This means that hedge funds and other sophisticated investors are betting heavily against the stock. These investors expect Cineworld’s share price to continue to fall.Meanwhile, only two insiders have purchased Cineworld shares since March. They were Chairman Anthony Bloom and Non-Executive Director Eric Senat, who both bought stock on 18 March. No other insiders have purchased shares since then.A speculative investmentPutting it all together, I see the shares as quite risky right now. Cineworld’s share price could bounce back if we see a coronavirus vaccine in the near term. However, it could just as easily fall if we see a second wave. So it’s a rather speculative play.All things considered, I think there are better UK shares to buy right now.

I think there are currently plenty of cheap UK shares with high dividend yields that look attractive in the FTSE 350. With that in mind, here are three stocks I would buy today that meet my criteria. Cheap UK sharesThe first company on my list is the insurance group Aviva (LSE: AV). At the time of writing, this organisation is trading at a P/E multiple of 7.3. That looks cheap compared to the market average of around 14.5G 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…The shares look cheap because the organisation faces some significant issues. Growth is sluggish, and management has been trying to turn things around for a couple of years. The company has been selling assets and exiting markets. Only time will tell if these initiatives will pay off. However, in the meantime, investors can look forward to a dividend yield of 5.8%. This distribution is not guaranteed, but I think it seems sustainable for at least the next 12 months. If growth returns, the value of the stock could rise substantially as investor sentiment improves. That’s why I would buy the investment for my portfolio today. High dividend yieldsA business with one of the highest dividend yields of all UK shares is Imperial Brands (LSE: IMB). Ethical considerations aside, this tobacco company looks dirt-cheap at first glance. It is trading at a P/E ratio of less than 6.Unfortunately, it’s clear why investors are giving the business a wide berth. Tobacco consumption worldwide is falling, which implies Imperial’s profits will decline in the long run.Still, I think this business is incredibly appealing as an income investment. It supports a dividend yield of just under 10% at the time of writing. So, even if the company does not grow for the next few years, investors could receive a near double-digit dividend yield. That’s why I would buy the stock from my portfolio today despite the challenges the corporation may face going forward. All that glittersThe final group on my list of cheap UK shares with high dividend yields is Centamin (LSE: CEY). This gold miner has earned itself a reputation of being one of the best income stocks on the market over the past few years. It is conservatively managed, has a strong balance sheet, and is incredibly cash generative.Based on current analyst projections, the stock could yield 6% for the year ahead. It is currently dealing at a forward P/E ratio of 10.3.Despite the company’s attractive qualities, I think it’s riskier than the investments outlined above. As a gold miner, the corporation is exposed to volatile gold prices. It also relies on a skilled workforce, which could become quite expensive if labour costs rise. Both of these factors could depress the business’s profit margins, putting its dividend at risk.These risks aside, I would buy the stock for my portfolio today based on its dividend potential and strong balance sheet. Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.
