Re: Xmas eve 1999 FTSE 100 6806

I think you will find that QE has indeed raised risk asset prices by pumping liquidity into the system. Arguably even more distorted in Europe where the ecb is buying good old Italian bonds and crappy corporate bonds that no one else will touch. And if we swing over to the land of the rising sun wh...

Re: Income vs Growth IT Performance

QE has stopped, at least in the US which arguably is the most significant central bank, where QT is underway as the FED is reducing the size of its balance sheet. QE stopped in the UK 2 years ago and is scheduled to stop in the Eurozone at the end of this year. So I think OhNoNotimAgain's comment s...

Re: What next for prefs ?

There was a fair bit of discussion of this a while back on the Fixed Interest Investments site, as I recall not many had a class vote written in to their terms. NWBD being an example of where it was. AV was assumed to be safe, at least for now, after the recent messing around, but I don't think it'...

Re: Buzzing transformer on Christmas lights

Yes, squeezing the sides does quieten it considerably. What's going on here - I have a basic understanding of a transformer - is it a flexible piece of metal which is under the influence of the alternating magnetic field which is touching the side of the case? The fact that you knew about it sugges...

Besides, if you reinvest then you don't get to spend divis. So how did you account for the missed utility of whatever you would have spent them on? A: you didn't, you only considered one side of the story. GS In the same way that you account for the missed utility of investing the original capital ...

Re: Income vs Growth IT Performance

Regarding Growth Vs Income ITs I thought they became less appealing around 2011 or so and slowly moved to an almost total passive approach with global ETFs. This has worked well and clearly the growth approach has been a winner since the GFC. Indeed, QE favoured growth and momentum investing. Now i...

Cntd.. Have dug into LLPC prospectus and my take is next step is to review the Articles: From prospectus : Substitution Subject to [...] LLPC/D are idiosyncratic in this respect.

Re: Xmas eve 1999 FTSE 100 6806

As the table below shows, if you invested in the FTSE 100 you could have almost doubled your returns by reinvesting dividends. So what? Everyone knows its better to reinvest dividends. Besides, if you reinvest then you don't get to spend divis. So how did you account for the missed utility of whate...

If GoSeigen is right about Gilt yields, and he might well be, I would prefer to take my chance with UK Prefs. yielding 6.5%.

Re: No justification for 2nd. referendum

You can replace it, but make sure the following all apply to the new power supply: 1. The output voltage is the same, to within about 10%. 2. The max output current/power rating is at least as high: more than 850mA or about 20W. 3. The polarity of the output connector matches the original. You might...
