Re: Verizon offers

Hello 4a,

I tried to check my inbox at Selftrade but the message re: Verizon offer appears to have gone missing.

Re: Verizon offers

I decided to take the option of selling my very small holding of Verizon shares.

On my account statement there is an entry on 13-JAN-2015 with an action of 'transfer out'.

So how do I found out when will my account be credited? I [more]

Re: Regular Investments

Hello Will.

I tried to add some FTSE250 constituents to the regular investment schedule (MTO, DNO) as a test and they seemed to be OK.

Previously I could add some of FTSE250 shares directly using the ticker suffixed by .ISE even if [more]

Re: Anfield getting bigger

While the builders are on site LFC should ask them nicely to bulldoze the Anfield Road stand and they could re-build it so that fans can actually see the pitch.

Re: Sage (SGE) Dividend

I'm grateful that Luniversal posts his SuperHYPs as they provide a lot of information.

Has anybody suggested that forward looking metrics could be built into the scoring system? Or is that discussion for the HY Strategies board? [more]

Re: Sage (SGE) Dividend

Hello Luniversal.

1) For every grey-swan Tesco (which was not a premium-quality share on its divi record anyway, more a goodish plodder) there are several flaps which prove to be sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Re: Starting a HYP now-basic 10 stocks?

At any time the overall market may be expensive and the index may be 'high' but there are usually companies or sectors that are out of favour.

The problem is that you then need to create a repeatable valuation methodology to calculate the [more]

Re: Starting a HYP now-basic 10 stocks?

Hello soul2.

I'll flip the question back to you and ask if you have 10 shares that you are considering to purchase for a new HYP?

What would you do if you couldn't ask strangers on the internet for suggestions?

Re: Bad habits

If you're still building the portfolio with new cash then over time you can decrease the imbalances, i.e. you obviously wouldn't buy further tranches of GSK and the money would be diverted to other shares and/or sectors.

It depends what your [more]

Re: Bad habits

How often do you re-balance your HYP? As soon as you refresh prices on the spreadsheet or is it a calendar event? Maybe when new cash is available?

If you want to work on a mechanistic approach you could re-balance annually and then check [more]
