Re: Selling a 2 bed flat

A bit like any estimate. Get at least 5, discard top and bottom, then take your pick of the 3 remaining.

We know that sometimes they make use of their revenue reserve to maintain or raise the dividends paid.

Re: Car & Travel Navigation apps

My view is that Google Maps is by far the best navigation facility, working in real time and capable of rerouting to avoid situations that arise en route. Google Maps is also good for looking at bus information, sometimes in real time if the bus company uses tracking. It will tell you where the bus ...

Re: Greene King - SOLD!

I recall saying this before, but I'm of the view that as a generality HYPs may experience more bids and other corporate action long term than the market overall, with this activity being mostly highly beneficial for the port. The reason is that HY is a component of value so there is a value tilt in...

Re: Trimmed back Compass CPG

Did you include the special dividend(s); there was at least one large one during that period. How is total return calculated over a 10 year period? I should have thought it was more than that. Presumably that is an annualised figure allowing for compounding. Is there a quick way of doing that? Ther...

Re: The history of HYP4, and the possibility of reviving it

Those are all the details I have of material events after 2007 for the shares which I held at that time. TJH Compass did a share consolidation two or three years back, accompanied (I think) by a small return of capital. Anyone reviving HYP4 need to factor in RBS' own share consolidation, which took...

Re: The history of HYP4, and the possibility of reviving it

Looking at the composition of HYP4, I see that I hold, or have held, 12 of the securities. RBS I have never held, but did hold Halifax at demutualisation in 1997 and disposed of it after RBS had their failed rights issue in June 2008. Foolishly I put the money into Cattles. Persimmon I have never he...

Re: Trimmed back Compass CPG

Terry, your method seems a great way to grow income over time, maintain diversification, and the total returns over the last 30 years are really impressive. Can I please ask whether you use HYP for any income provision? Even though your top-ups focus on growing income, whenever you trim or receive ...

Re: Tory thinktank - state pension age should rise to 75

However, there was no significant change in the basis of the state pension until 1925 when the Widows’, Orphans’ and Old Age Contributory Pensions Act introduced the first contributory state pension scheme. This scheme was funded on contributions from both the employee and employer. That was, I bel...

I think there are better Android tablets available, without Amazon's interference. My wife had one which she has misplaced or lost. I have replaced it with a Fusion tablet, with Android 8 and a larger screen, which is vastly superior.

Re: Considering early retirement

I wish I had a time machine so I could tell my younger self to start investing in 1987. Are any of the above IRRs calculated on the whole period 1987 to present? The IRR from inception in 1987 to the present day is 9.6%. The figures in the second table in my post https://www.lemonfool.co.uk/viewtop...
