Re: Share buybacks: a beautiful thing

All too often we see on these boards grumpy Fools whinging that a share buyback is taking place. The petulant mutterings usually go something like this: “Buybacks are reducing my dividend.... They used to be illegal...management want their share options to trigger” They are, of course, entitled to ...

Re: Yet another ISA provider thread

You could look at Interactive Investor. Although some here have misgivings I have found them efficient and they charge a flat monthly fee depending on how you use the arrangements £9.99 per month and £7.99 per trade but see the website for details. I have seen nothing about A J Bell that would put ...

Re: Irritable Bowel Syndrome - Anyone Help?

But in the meantime I'd genuinely welcome any advice from anyone who's suffered with the illness please. The pain is really disrupting my life now - and I can't work out how to stop it. I hasten to add I know the difference between a little discomfort and pains that are becoming unmanageable. Thank...

Re: the NewRiver REIT (NRR) topic

. but what am I missing, why is this REIT considered a good one (genuine question) You only look at the dividend yield and ignore the capital performance. The Woodford funds favoured it, before that became a negative. Hmmm, so in the last five years, obtaining a yield of 5 or 8% each year is offset...

Re: the NewRiver REIT (NRR) topic

What I don't understand is why this REIT finds such favour.

It's performance has been dire, and yes, I appreciate that past performance etc. but what am I missing, why is this REIT considered a good one (genuine question)

Bond funds for reduced volatility

Can anyone recommend some government and/or corporate bonds for further research? My aim is to reduce volatility within my portfolio whilst providing at least an inflation covering growth/yield rate from said bonds. I would also like to keep fees to a minimum and would think that ETF's are the way t...

Re: England v Wales BBC highlights commentary

Watching the highlights now. I’ve no idea who the main commentator is but this is not radio and a commentator doesn’t have to talk non-stop. For example, as the crowd were singing Swing Low, we were told the crowd were singing Swing Low. Please shut-up. Couldn't agree more. And they also insist of ...

Re: Holiday Homes - Lodges/Static Caravans

Living in Dorset close to the coast, I have visited several of the sites photographing lodges for owners renting. Some locally can fetch up to £500,000 ....for a 30 year licence with a fabulous location, annual site fees are around £6,000 , there is an active rental market. If you sell, you can gen...

I hope you don't think this comment strays too far from your OP but it is probably worth considering what you are hoping to achieve by moving. Mike88's comment is worth reflecting on.

Re: Holiday Homes - Lodges/Static Caravans

I looked into buying a static caravan for the same reason as the OP. I found that the conditions of locating caravans varies considerably from site to site. Some charge high annual rentals but let you keep your caravan on site for an unspecified number of years and some specify you can only retain ...

Re: Holiday Homes - Lodges/Static Caravans

I've no direct experience, but my sister and hubby had a static caravan and one of the conditions was that they could not sell later to anyone else..... they had to sell back to the site owner. The owner seemed to be scrupulously fair, but I can imagine some site owners might feel they have you ove...

Holiday Homes - Lodges/Static Caravans

I am thinking of buying a holiday lodge or static caravan that can be used as required for being closer to our daughter (if she thinks that's a good idea of course :? ) There are those parks that permit holiday lodges to be rented out and those that don't and both have their pros and cons and I will...

Re: Ashes 5-0?

Before we accept the fact that Steve Smith is too good for our bowlers, perhaps the decision to play a not-match-fit Anderson should be reviewed. I was very impressed with Jofra Archer. His extra pace and ability to vary it, may have just made the difference at Edgbaston. In fairness to our bowlers...

Re: Endoscopy

Update. Came into A&E last night with horrible pain and the medical team think that a gall stone removal by endoscope will be the answer. Gall bladder removal at a later date due to being in blood thinners for the stents that were fitted last month. Anyway, I have found out that the gall stone t...

Gulp! Having an MRI tomorrow for gall stones which when passing through the bile duct cause significant pain for between three and 12 hours. Most likely, an endoscope will be required as well and AiY has just managed to put the frightners on me for sure. :shock: I had a north bound endoscope some ye...
