Re: Re-balance, top-up or new candidate help

Hi.

Thanks for the additional replies. I'll stick with RDSB for this month's regular investment then perhaps add VOD next, followed by BLT.

Re: Premier League relegation odds

It's in our hands though.

It's a conundrum for me. It'd obviously be hilarious if NUFC are relegated but we (SAFC) need the 6 points next season! ;-)

Re: Re-balance, top-up or new candidate help

Thank you very much for the replies.

I have setup RDSB for the Selftrade regular investment tomorrow - this was after changing my mid 3 times and back again!

Re-balance, top-up or new candidate help

Hello.

I have a HYPish portfolio that is due a re-balance/top-up/new candidate with some accumulated dividends but I'm unsure of the best practical method of deciding what action to take.

Vodafone (VOD) is underweight, about 2.5% of [more]

Re: Boring Boring Arsenal

To be fair they were playing against a very well organised Sunderland team last night who carved out the best clear cut chances of the game.

Re: Alarm maintenance contracts

Maybe a solution would be:

- Ensure that the system has been fitted by an insurance industry 'approved' installer.

Re: If Pardew's quick.....

Oh well at least the magpies now have a bona fide Geordie at the helm so there won't be any phone box smashing or horse punching for a few weeks. There may even be ban on 'boycoutts' (sic) against the 'Cockney Mafia'.
