Re: IanTHughes HYP – Into Year Eight

I've been re-investing throughout the ten years of my HYP, and adding new capital when I've found it down the back of the sofa. It must be true that my investment in "new" dividends is lower now as a proportion of the total HYP that it was in the period of biggest investment growth. I'm n...

Re: IanTHughes HYP – Into Year Eight

Yes of course (reinvesting dividends buys more income units and investing new money buys more income and accumulation units). But if yields were generally 3-4% in 2012 and are 6-8% now* you are buying twice the income per unit now than you could back in 2012 which will make the income per unit high...

Re: IanTHughes HYP – Into Year Eight

It's not helping guys! Seeing such huge increases in income per unit makes me wonder what on earth I could be doing wrong. TJH's income has increased around 46% over six years and Ian's something similar - mine? 16%. I'm thinking of crawling into a hole and turning the lights out :( Arb. Just a tho...

Re: IanTHughes HYP – Into Year Eight

Well done for the increase in income per unit of around 50%. I've just checked my comparable figure from Dec 12 ro Dec 18 and my increaseit a pathetic 16%. Despite some people knocking your love of quite high yielders ("Chasing high yield", as some might say 8-) ), your formula does seem ...

Re: Galliford Try and Bovis homes merger

Feels like all this will really do is crystalize my losses. The remaining part of the company will have a harder time recovering from the partly-Carillion-induced slump and could easily fall further. I'd rather give them time to rebuild and at least get some dividends in while they do it. Indeed, i...

Re: Road vs Hybrid Wheels (700c)

I had a wheel go out of true (Mavic Aksium Disc) after ~1year of light use trued up by EBC for free as comes with a two year guarantee from Mavic (3years if you register on their website) which I think is pretty good service. So I agree after a short period of use and no potholes hit etc I'd expect ...

Re: Galliford Try and Bovis homes merger

The market seems to like it - up 17% as of 8.45 this morning, but Bovis is down 4% ish so clearly the market thinks GFRD share holders are getting the better side of the deal. So a GFRD share holder will get .57 of a share of bovis worth 575p at this mornings price plus the GFRD construction busines...

Thanks for the reminder, and that's a very good point. I do wonder if there might be some movement in the e-scooter and e-bike area of UK regulations, and especially in the e-scooter area.

It comes with a 250W crank-centred motor, or as a sportier “S” version with a more powe...
