Re: Pearson dividends

Thank you very much for the reply Luniversal.

You mentioned in your reply companies and entire sectors such as Balfour Beatty, Amec, supermarkets, banks etc. etc. so perhaps there will never be a fail-proof high yield no-tinker strategy that [more]

Re: Pearson dividends

Hi Luniversal.

Re:

'Five years of rising dividends' are kaput. Pearson is no longer a pyadic pick for a HYP. It has entered the murky area where they say 'OK, if it halves the divi I'll be on a 3.5% yield...' [more]

Re: December top up

Thank you very much Arb.

Yes I realise that there aren't hard and fast rules and I'm gradually implementing or changing my own as different practicalities are encountered.

Re: Investment Advice Required.

Hello sg31.

I have never invested such a large amount of cash, and I probably never will. I could offer an opinion but it's based on what I would do and what I'd consider if I had to produce an income from over £500k.
