Re: SSE - Trading Statement

Good job BATS & IMPS were up ~6% and ~3% today ( along with increases in BP, RDSB,GNK, PFC* and GFRD*)... more importantly, there has been no mention of "cut" w.r.t. dividends. * not common HYP shares I know! I hold both, Petrofac is up ~50% including divis and GFRD is up ~10% includi...

Re: GALLIFORD TRY - ANNUAL RESULTS STATEMENT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2018

Cut from 96p last year (32p and 64p)....and after we were tapped for money to cover off additional costs on the Aberdeen peripheral route. Yes a cut on last year, but I took up the rights and my dividend in cash terms is slightly increased on last year (for an approx. 14% extra cash payment). Share...

Re: Accounting for the Carillion loss

Carillion still appears in my spreadsheet. Each share has its own page with details of purchases, sales corporate actions etc, and it still also appears in the summary page, but is greyed out as I no longer own it, with a comment in the notes section that it went bust. It has a share price of £0.00 ...

Re: income progress

I've not been adding new money this year and I have some cash from a top slice and dividends still to reinvest - I'm trying to get my unsheltered dividend income below £2000 so some money may stay in cash or might get invested in a value based ETF until next tax year when it can go into my ISA.

Re: South32 Finals

They paid 3.6+6.4 cents last year for a total dividend of 10c This year they are paying 4.3+6.2 for a total of 10.5c plus a 3.0c special with the interim for a total pay out of 13.5c. So they are a little unusual in that the interim is up, but final is down compared to last year, and the special may...

Re: Logging onto Interactive Investor?

I had no problems this morning logging on (IE on Windows 7). I did find that my old TD link to the logon page stopped working a couple of weeks ago, and just says service disruption, I'm assuming the redirect has now ceased, but I found the correct II logon page without problems.

Re: Legal & General Half Year Report

That's another problem: too much in one sector. It seems that financials have been too attractive in the past couple of years. Mind you, many fund managers of stalwart ITs don't baulk at having 30% or so financials. I was bitten in the past. I held a decent tranche of financials just before the fin...

Re: Legal & General Half Year Report

This is a company which has done very well for me over a long time, and I might even have a further top up before this XD. My reservation is that I already have an investment of around 1.2x median: but since this is one of my "winner's" maybe that's not a bad thing.* One of Dod's stalwart...

Re: HSDL again

Very possibly. But how does that modify my point? Only in the sense that it was commented that an annual statement would be much more sensible than qtrly statements (I think so too) and that I think we are lumbered with qtrly statements because the regulator says so. I agree the statement is pretty...

Re: Petrofac Limited Trading Update

I always wonder why we talk about Petrofac on the HYP board? if you want a high yield oily, it is a choice between Shell and BP mate. We have all lost money on Amec, Wood Group and Petrofac. Or if we haven't it is because we never bought them in the first place. Now Petrofac might well be a good sh...

An increase of 4.9%. Except the rolling 12 month divi is down as the last final was 2.05p compared to 2.2p the previous year due to a 0.5p special dividend that wasn't repeated. Performance looks pretty good from my brief overview of the report, so maybe the next final will be significantly up, par...
