Re: HYP Buying For End of Oct

Well I am fully invested in respect of the funds I have allocated for investment. The four years of expenditure is actually a deliberate allocation in N S & I Index linkers, asset management if you like. They are to my mind too valuable to sell and the reason it is so much is that the income fr...

Re: KCOM Group (KCOM)

Thanks, both. Silly me, I had forgotten about the dot-com boom and bust, probably because the memory is too painful. Oh well, I can use the loss when I cash in gains this tax year.

Re: KCOM Group (KCOM)

I see from the records that I bought 200 shares (certificated in those days) in KCOM in March 2000; actually, since I usually put round sums in rather than buy round numbers of shares, I suspect my husband did the deal. The price paid was £10.80 p.s. so I don't think I'll be cracking open any champe...

Re: AstraZeneca: Where Has All the Cash Gone?

I had to laugh when I read the following in ADVFN's morning bulletin: "AstraZeneca ticked down even as the pharmaceuticals giant said it had secured three new drug approvals in Japan", but "On the upside, housebuilder Berkeley Group was on the front foot. Although it posted a 20.7% de...

Re: AstraZeneca: Where Has All the Cash Gone?

Geng - Like you, I don't know how to differentiate types of ovarian cancer but I do know that ovarian cancer is reasonably common and tends to be diagnosed late because symptoms are not obvious in early stages and for that reason the survival rate is very poor, which is why my instinctive reaction w...

Re: AstraZeneca: Where Has All the Cash Gone?

Thanks; I missed that as I have a house guest. So is this where I go wrong? My instinct would be to hang on to a success story but should I be quitting while I am ahead? Having said that, I admit to hanging on to my losers as well in the hope of recovery (e.g. WPCT), which rarely works though Greggs...

Re: Imperial Brands Half Yearly Report

I wonder if they have taken into account the special circumstances of the Woodford connection. While the tobacco industry may be slowly dying, I don't think the present drop is due to that. One might have thought that they could take a long term view and bag a few bargains and collect a profit when ...

Vodafone's 5G Victory

Vodafone Germany has won the country's auction of spectrum licences for next generation 5G mobile networks at a cost of 1.9bn euros. Hasn't done much for the s.p. What I'd like to know is when we can expect calls between interviewees and BBC programmes not to be (almost invariably) cut off making th...

It's a lose-lose situation for BLND whichever way that vote goes. Landlords are over a barrel.

Re: IanTHughes HYP - June 2019 Top-ups

And to think, the share price of BATS has increased by 27% since the end of Jan 19. Not sure if that's :) or :( ! ( I'm glad about the recovery to date but a favourable top up opportunity might have passed). You struck a cord with me tbh. I might just top up BLND instead. As for Imperial Brands, th...

Re: Patient Capital

Dod - Bouleversee. One answer to your question is that as I said earlier this stuff was dated 6 March 2019, well before the current debacle. It therefore does not help to explain very much. Patient Capital Trust is intended for the long term. I did not buy into it mainly because I do not like manage...

It was never intended for people who wanted to make a fast buck. It was up over 14% when I first looked this morning so i suppose some have taken the opportunity to get out.

How can Woodford decide to sell his unwanted, unquoted stuff to Patient Capital Trust without the Director's approval? Otherwise the conflict of interest is just too much.

Do, please, do a post on a board where your new purchase would be on-topic and let us know where that is. I'd be interested to know what you are planning to buy. You were not asking me but the problem as I see it is exactly what you allude to - I cannot honestly answer your question without going o...

Thanks, Terry. Worth the effort for you, then, but I think I know what would happen if I tried it, in between caring for 5 lawns and 14 large flower beds and everything else.
