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...

Re: Lloyds Banking Half Yearly Report

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...

I sold VOD before the demerger, and bought them back afterwards. That way I avoided Verizon. However my IRR since then has been -5.0%.
