Re: HYP1 is 19 - thread discussing income and capital diversification

The thing about HYP1 is that I don't imagine many people run a strict no-tinkering portfolio like it. And if there are any 'Dorises' around, they're not reading TLF. Almost everyone reading these boards will have state pension entitlement plus company pension schemes. So having something HYP-like i...

Re: Vodafone Half Yearly Report

So we had a ~60% cut in the final dividend (paid in August 2019), but the next interim dividend has almost been held, and is larger than the last final!

Re: Marks & Spencer Group PLC (MKS) - Interim Results for Year Ending 31 Mar 2020

I am still sitting on a 47.53% loss for which the yield does not compensate. One might say that with the current yield it might be a buy now but I don't get the impression that anyone thinks they are going to turn things round in the foreseeable future so I am not inclined to average down. If I wer...

Re: Marks & Spencer Group PLC (MKS) - Interim Results for Year Ending 31 Mar 2020

In some senses they don't look too bad. Profit is up after exceptionals, because there are less exceptionals than usual and debt is down - so that profit looks to be real cash. The market likes it - up 5% as I write. The dividend is down 3.9p compared to 6.8p last year - but they told us about that ...

CGT

When calculating CGT: I'm a basic rate tax payer so some of the gain will be taxed at 10% and some will be taxed at 20%. To calculate the amount in the latter band do I need to include interest on income that is within the 0% band (ie less than £1000) and dividend income within the £2000 % band)? eg...
