Re: My HYP

Hello bailey,

As I have said previously, I don't often post here, but I have learnt a lot from those who do.

Well perhaps you should post more often. You obviously have a lot to offer this board.

Re: Finally 15 Shares

AZN remains on my watchlist, but I would want to see a higher yield before buying.

Me too. Anyone else tempted?

Re: Finally 15 Shares

I just wonder if my younger self might have penned that about Aviva or Lloyds, before I earned my battle-scars.

Arb, your words of caution are gratefully accepted, and well-penned.

Re: Finally 15 Shares

Not at today's yield differential in my view. The time for AZN was 2-4 years ago, when there was all the agonising about pipeline and the 'patent cliff'. If you want to add to your pharma holdings, then why not go overweight in GSK. As you are [more]

Re: Finally 15 Shares

It is very important to remember that you can never recover from a total (90%+) loss except by working longer.

Hence the importance of adequate diversification, to a degree that allows you to sleep at night.

Re: Balfour Beatty: more write offs

Odd, I don't recall "being a LTBH" being one of the things people check before buying a share for their HYP. Um, how *does* one check that anyway?

Re: Any views on Ladbrokes?

Hi Wado,

Not one for me I'm afraid. With a yield around 7%, and weak cover, it falls in my 'to good to be true' pile.

There are 'safer' good yields out there without 'gambling' on such high yields as that of LAD.

Re: Cigarettes news...

Afterall, the fag companies all say that plain packaging will not reduce consumption.

I personally think this issue is being overdone. Smokers are addicted to the packet's contents, not the packet.

I'll watch for now

I'll just ignore all this hype, and continue thinking looong term, with my 'SI' hat on, and remember it's about the income.
