Re: AIC Research

I note that such trusts mostly trade on a discount today as opposed to income trusts which are on a premium.

They are not. The main source of income from ITs is the aforementioned UK Equity Income sector, where the average discount is [more]

Re: Will Vodaphone be the next cutter?

Vodafone last yielded under 2% in early 2005. Then its status changed. Before, it had always yielded less than the market, as little as 0.6% when HYP1 was created. Afterwards it always paid more than the run of blue chips.

Monthly review, SuperHYP 105

An old Punch cartoon had a sales director contemplating a chart with a perfectly horizontal line and saying 'Sometimes I think it'll drive me mad.' Stockmarket dealers might feel the same way after almost two years of vacillation. [more]

Re: AIC Research

I use City of London (CTY) as a proxy for the UK Equity Income sector: a middling good, income-focused investment trust. CTY majors on the Footsie and does not do clever tricks.

Re: Will Vodaphone be the next cutter?

And yet it has not been in the Danger Zone since mid-Oct., after a spell of five months in red zones.

The consensus is therefore that the dividend is getting safer at Vodaphone. I talked to Mahatma Ghandi, Warren Buffet and Shane Ritchie, [more]

Re: Divestment Strategies

Check some of Luniversal's posts on the HYP Practical board about a basket of passive funds. I would recommend putting all the liquid assets into such like.

Re: MRCH (B8): yr to Jan 2015

'Dumped' was too sweeping. Merchants sold £6.8m of FLG before the year end (accounts p. 18) but still, as you say, held £17.7m, 2.7% of the portfolio, at Jan. 31: the 11th largest holding.

Re: Law Debenture’s discount

PS: I see that when LawDeb hit 70 in 1959, its income from operations was £48,000, part of revenue of £324,000.

So still quite a small contributor, and amid another new issue boom; but the chairman said LawDeb was 'hoping to [more]

Not so.

For all months from Jan. 1966 until Dec. 2014, the FT All-Share Index rose year-on-year by an average 3.5% after inflation (RPI).

Re: Unilever (ULVR) 1st Quarter

Unilever has yielded at least 90% of the market average continuously since Jul. 2013, and for most of the HYP system's lifetime since Nov. 2000, except when the yield went lower in 2002 and 2008.

No, just a damned dull one. Its frequent profit warnings never mattered much to HYP-ers, because the dividend appears to have been managed for torpidity.
