Bit of a nuisance that the election is 12th but cheap dealing at Bell's is 10th! ‘You've got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?’ More seriously do you not think the market isn't expecting an outright Labour win and the threat of utility Co. nationalisation has receded...

Re: Fishing again in the HYP Pool

I can see the argument there, but with a modest yield, might you not be better off ditching the single company risk and buying a generalist IT of larger yield? One would normally prefer a higher yield to compensate for the perceived added the risk, at least on initial purchase. Arb. I can see that ...

Re: Selling Strategy

Does anyone have a successful selling strategy? Pyad always recommended don't sell ever. However the advice used to be only buy if the divi cover was above 1.5. I have thought of selling if the cover fell below about 1.2. The problem is for this to occur usually means there has been a drop in profi...

A miner wouid be a new sector, as would WPP or ITV or a water co, I prefer pennon, one of the pharms - but their dividends are static and that would put me off.

Re: Provident Financial (PFG) should I sell?

PFG offer about 4.5%, though as you'll probably know they've cut from a level of 98p to 10p. Like Ian said if you think you can pick a better income and return from a share go for it. My HYP is mostly hands off so PFG stays in my portfolio, for a while they were a good little earner growing the divi...

Re: Have you owned HYP1 since it was developed and it is still untinkered with?

Really interested to know who has owned HYP1 since 2000. I can’t imagine anyone just blindly putting real money into that HYP just because Stephen put it together. That would be very unFoolish imho. Whatever happened to doing your own research? I voted no in the above poll. Ian. Like Ian I'm not su...

Re: Next purchase, Advice please

Checking down a ftse100 yield list for sectors not covered the first companies I see with what I think is acceptable dividend record and high yield are WPP, ITV TUI then Kingfisher, then I'd have to look at their cover, debt and other financials.

Re: National Grid Interims

The Group’s dividend policy is to aim to grow the ordinary dividend per share at least in line with the rate of UK RPI inflation each year for the foreseeable future. Ta Ian, I do like to see this sort of statement from my income machines. 5.3% historic yield, 5.5% forecast, 20 odd years of increas...

Re: Dividend Yield on FTSE 100

Not a tracker but a similarly mechanical low cost collective is the ETF ishares FTSE100 ISF and it has a distribution yield of 4.54%. The distribution yield represents the ratio of distributed income over the last 12 months to the fund’s current NAV. details here https://www.ishares.com/uk/individua...

Re: Tate & Lyle PLC (TATE) - Interim Results for Year Ending 31 Mar 2020

Though perhaps not sweet enough :( Unless my numbers are wrong, I see a rather pedestrian 1.1% pa dividend increase for the past five years, which suggests that TATE is not able to keep up with inflation. Tate hasn't been a troublesoms share, and for that I'm grateful, but it would be nice to see a...
