Re: My dividends per unit-TJH

Unless you've subsequently edited the initial post (which I doubt), then I'm at a loss. AFAIK. The 1st table was correct but missed off the most recent value as of 05-Apr-18. The 2nd table was supposed to be the same as the first but with the 05-Apr-18 value added, however the rebasing went a bit w...

I thought I was ok, but now am confused, in your second table (including 2018) the rebased RPI figures have changed, but the rebased dividends haven't :?

Re: My dividends per unit-TJH

Hi Terry, Thanks for this report, very useful. I'm thinking of adding some unitisation to my data to track my HYP portfolio against my IT portfolio and also against RPI - to help me work out a few things. A basic question I have is how did you rebase the dividend per unit and RPI figures, I'm relati...

Re: Statement from the Board of Unilever

I think everyone (myself included) has been affected by events such as Carillion and am finding it harder to trust the portfolio.

I'm not adverse to selling of course but I do wonder if we're all just a little bit nervous about the market.

Re: Statement from the Board of Unilever

Good news, but are all of those that sold recently to avoid this complication now going to buy back in? It seems to me that it's becoming more common for Fools (even more experiences ones who should know better) to jump ship at the first sign of trouble, whatever happened to having a "portfolio...

Re: Unilever - SIMPLIFICATION OF UNILEVER'S CORPORATE STRUCTURE

When I think of Unilever, I just remind myself of this from their website: "On any given day, 2.5 billion people use Unilever products to feel good, look good and get more out of life – giving us a unique opportunity to build a brighter future." https://www.unilever.com/about/who-we-are/ab...

Re: Unilever - SIMPLIFICATION OF UNILEVER'S CORPORATE STRUCTURE

I don't intend to sell, I've sold worse shares in the past and Unilever have done very well for me over the years.
I top sliced a month or so ago, but intend to hold and ignore the noise.

One would also hope that in the boardrooms of the big tobacco companies, they are fully aware of the reducing numbers of smokers and have plans in place to deal with this.

Re: Retirement imminent - diversification dilemma

I don't see the point of paying them to do it when it's pretty easy to DIY. Lots written about it on the HYP-Practical board. Agree with you, it is pretty easy. The problem is you will reach an age when it becomes less easy and eventually impossible to manage, or worse you'll die and your partner w...

Re: Transferring out of a stakeholder pension

Completely agree with Tuk020, paying off the mortgage may not be the best solution financially (although it's very good) but from a security/physiological point of view, it's priceless.

Even more so if you want to FIRE and retire early.

Re: ITs and Stocks in a HYP?

Quite a few of us do, however ITs aren't allowed to be discussed on the HYP Practical board (this one), so you may want to start another topic on the strategy board, or maybe one of the mods can move this one?

Re: GALLIFORD TRY - ANNUAL RESULTS STATEMENT FOR THE YEAR ENDED 30 JUNE 2018

Thanks Ian,

I hold and may consider a top-up, the results aren't too bad and I think increasing dividend cover to 2.0 is a good idea, provides us with some protection for the future even though we are seeing a cut this year.

Anyway, could have been worse :D

I topped up IMB recently as I already have enough BATS and I prefer the higher yield/cover, etc.

Re: Vodafone in $11bn Australian merger

As a not very practical exercise, I sometimes like to think ahead to the far future (Blade Runner era for example). I try to imagine what company logo's I might see advertised along the neon boardwalks, etc. and I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing Vodafone, Shell, BP and many of our favourites long into...

Re: income progress

and National Grid who I think paid a special the previous year are the main culprits. I tend to not include specials in my totals to avoid that problem, doesn't mean I don't reinvest them as of course I do but I exclude them from the total dividends received in a year, I do have a separate total fo...
