Re: Thinking of Buying

With respect HuddersfieldMark, don't overthink it.

You'll never get in at the 'right' time everytime, meanwhile, you might even miss the boat altogether.

Re: Looking to Buy! Your Candidates Please!

Two that I like, and hold, are going exdiv today, those being BAE Systems (BA.) and Amlin (AML).

If you don't have them already, they're worth a look IMHO.

Thank you for your reasoned post, and kind words.

Re: My April HYP(ISA) Top Up

I'm not to proud to reconcider my options, and based on the recs for Ian, and kempiejon, maybe I should.

Perhaps going straight for Tate & Lyle would be the better idea.

Cheers,

Re: Housebuilders?

PYAD recommending going down the list, but also selecting from a sector which you did not already have.

I don't think he meant have a finger in every pie though. :-)

Re: New Buy's

Hi Raptor,

Of your list I like BAE Systems (BA.), and Pearson (PSON), bot of which I hold.
The others are not as large as I'd like.

Shell (RDSB), Sainsbury (SBRY), and Amlin (AML)

HTH,

Ian.

Re: NBrown (BWNG) Thoughts?

I am slightly weary of clothes retailers as fashion trends change...

Re: HYP - next share/s

Time to take a closer look at the short list.

And any conclusions?

For me at least, all of the above are decent HYP shares. The only one that I don't hold currently is Carillion.
