Re: Investors Chronicle Income Majors

Had me puzzled until I realised that there is no space between columns. The P/E and the yield have run together. I haven't used that method for tables, but for the "pre" method I put 3 spaces between columns. I would correct your post if I knew the method.

Re: Transition to Electric Car Endeavours

Induction charging from a loop in the road surface would be a more sensible approach. It is already being used for battery powered buses. Put a loop in every parking place with an adjacent activating unit, or trigger from a sensor on each vehicle.

Re: Pronounciation

Some years ago our Rotary Club hosted a joint meeting with Dutch and Belgian (Flemish) clubs. One of our members, brought up in South Africa, gave a speech of welcome in Africaans.

Our visitors commented that it was a bit like being in church.

Re: SMDS rights

I have given instructions to sell my rights, which it appears will happen on Monday. I am not very keen on this lark of selling without knowing how much you will get, especially as the market is in "tart's drawers" mode at the moment.

Re: M & M's First Portfolio - Strategy Ideas?

I have a portfolio of about 35 shares. I judge the performance of individual shares by comparison with what the rest have done. In terms of value, my yardstick is the value of the median holding. I set a limit of a multiple of the median value, if a holding exceeds that limit, then I trim it back b...

Re: BBC scrapping Daily and Sunday Politics shows

I can think of a lot more programmes that they could cut. Does that also mean that "This Week" will go? That is a pantomime that has long passed its usefulness. What about the Andrew Marr show as well? The BBC News channel and BBC Parliament channel would be more suited to current affairs ...

Re: The effects of NATO matters

I was under the impression that Turkey is a member of NATO and hosts a number of US bases. It has a considerable coastline on the Black Sea. There is no comparison with an operation by Russia in the Caribbean.

Re: Preference shares -- keeping it simple

There is a very big difference between buying in the market and cancelling shares which you do not own. Do not confuse these two operations.

Re: M & M's First Portfolio - Strategy Ideas?

Further to what Paul says above, you have to remember that everything is relative. You sold a share because it has risen, but what happened to the rest of the market? If that rose similarly, would you sell everything that you held? I have a portfolio of about 35 shares. I judge the performance of in...

Re: Military AWOL

If you returned to camp after 23:59 you are automatically on a charge of being AWOL. If you arrived back late but got in by avoiding the guardroom, you will face an additional charge of breaking in to camp. What happens depends on the CO's decision. If it was down to circumstances outside your contr...

Re: Transition to Electric Car Endeavours

I do perhaps four journeys a year of more than 20O miles. I cannot remember the last time I drove more than 450 miles in a day. 450 miles is the range you use for a weekend out and back of around 200 miles, where you fill up at your home garage before you leave and when you return. So the sort of j...

Re: Daylight saving

If you go to Poland, which is right at the east side of the CET zone, they tend to work from 7am to 3pm with a break for "second breakfast" and then have lunch after work. It gets dark very early in the winter.

Better to adjust working and school hours than change the clock.

Re: SMDS rights

Bloomberg don't seem to want to let me add it to my watchlist, ADVFN says it does not exist and Lloyd's Sharedealing echo Halifax with a starred price. A total blank in the information page, but I do have the message giving me the four options.
