Re: The future for Energy Stocks?

One thing I meant to add regarding the risk of unscrupulous companies entering newly-regulated markets, such as the environmental one being discussed here, is to perhaps look to a high-yielding Investment Trust as a means to invest in the sector, where a level of sector-expertise can be taken advan...

"Excuse me waitress..."

Me - "Excuse me waitress, can I ask you something about the menu please?"

Waitress - <slaps me across the face> "The men I please are none of your damn business!"

Cheers!

Re: Windscreen frost covers

For me, warm means body temperature or thereabouts, so I consider the thermal shock to be less than that from washing a car with hot water on a crisp April morning - and no-one ever worries about thermal shock in those circumstances! Thanks Waits - that makes sense. I'll try to use warm water rathe...

Re: Eisman shorts HSBC and STAN

It was in yesterday's Mail on Sunday, the financial section, big headline "Big Short Investor targets UK banks in Hong Kong Crisis". The article refers to Eisman's newly formed Absolute Alpha fund and that he has taken out a short position worth £1.4 million against Stan and that there is...

Re: Suits you, Sir

You're part of the older generation if your trousers stop half an inch below the ankle bone. Fashions flare and die the death. Did you say flare? I have a pair of authentic seventies jeans with 24 inch bottoms, which I can offer at a most attractive price to a suitably informed connoisseur. Yours f...

Re: Windscreen frost covers

Just want to say thanks to everyone who's offered advice on the windscreen-frost issue. Unfortunately changing cars or moving to Essex isn't practical at this moment in time, so I think I might try the warm-water routine this winter, and see how I get on. I admit that I too thought that regularly pu...

I asked for one of my posts to be deleted yesterday (a double post), but the notification refuses to be 'acknowledged'. So it's still showing as unread. Any thoughts? By 'acknowledged', do you mean that you've ticked the little green tick on the right hand side of the notification? I can't remember...

Re: Selling Unilever?

Many people prefer not to feel they are eroding their ‘capital’ but are living off ‘income’. Hence they prefer high yielding shares, with poorer prospects, to lower immediate yield shares with better prospects. It's clear that there are many ways to skin a cat with regards to living off investments...

Re: Mobile phones

According to Google, 3% of UK households do not have a mobile phone. If the population is about 60 million, then maybe 3 million do not have or use a mobile phone. I am one of those people who has never used one simply because I don’t feel the need. I am happy to use land lines and do not use socia...
