On what do you base your analysis of “hopeless”?
Arb has put some flesh on my comments and just look at the dividend table shown earlier in this thread. Aviva, like its stable mate RSA, has far too much baggage for my liking, and no sooner do they appear to have got themselves sorted out than along comes something else.
So nothing concrete on AV then? In which case "Hopeless" seems a little harsh.
Still, I use the actual dividend record to say "HYP Stalwart" whereas you, faced with the same record, say "Hopeless". I will stick to my analysis I think.
Over the 10 years that you cite (and in which I have been a holder), Aviva's annual dividend increases have only very modestly beaten CPI inflation, which I calculate at 1.6% per annum over the period.
I'm glad I don't have many more such stalwarts in my HYP.
