If we were a Colony we would not have a vote. It is Nigel Farage who suggested for years that we take the Norway option and become a colony of the EU.

Re: Fuel exports and tariffs

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-06-10/oil-refiner-margins-tank-in-europe-in-latest-sign-of-weak-demand Looks like the average margins are USD5-6 per barrel. With a crude oil price of USD 60 the tariff would be USD 3 which is on average more than half the margin. Margins appear to be par...

Re: Investment information sources for research

Having started looking at HYPTUSS I note this list of sites:

Oddly enough I had never looked at the AJ Bell data which seems quite good.

Pension credit is the means tested element. The state pension is not means tested.

As I read it those are totals for the year. Obviously it is not impossible to reconcile totals to lists and make a stab at why there are any differences, but it is much easier when you have two lists.

Investment information sources for research

I have put this topic into How Do I Invest because it is relevant to all investment although I was previously discussing it in HYP. I am reviewing sources of information and am interested in other people's experiences. All of the secondary sources seem to have problems from time to time so it is alw...

Re: Timing the market has given better results than time in the market

Further to this issue (stock picking for HYP) I have just gone on holiday and bought a load of magazines to read on the planes. Included in those was the Investors Chronicle, which I had not really looked at before. That had pieces on the stocks I was looking at and was very useful. I already have a...

Re: Timing the market has given better results than time in the market

Have you looked at the dividenddata site which lists both yields and past dividend performance? I have now. It loses the distinction between different types of dividend (interim, final, special) on the historic dividends. I am personally not sure of the value of a measure of dividend growth as a si...

Re: Timing the market has given better results than time in the market

I am currently going through a review of how to invest some cash that I have got from selling an asset. I am trying to go for a reasonably low level of risk and I would want reasonably liquid stocks. I also prefer stocks that pay a dividend and are for this purpose at least to some extent establishe...

Re: Boris Johnson PM - how it's going?

But the issue is, how does a new government become the new government to be able to hold a confidence motion to demonstrate that it has the confidence of the house? To answer this authoritatively I would have to look at what happened in 1979 and I think it was 1924 when governments were defeated on...

Re: Aviva Half Yearly.

I have had some GACA ever since the row about the capital reduction (I bought on the dip), but have now gone into the equity a bit. It strikes me that AV are suffering from some form of UK market brexit uncertainty. I cannot see anything that would cause them to dip down to a PE of 10 and prospectiv...
