Re: Poll: Are you a buyer?

On a slightly different tack, yesterday, Sunday we went to Sainsbury's to buy food and drink for a BBQ. We arrived at 10am only to find they didn't open until 11. Mrs SF suggested going to Tesco and I thought that it would probably open at 11am as [more]

Re: Mid cap income ITs?

Hi Cranwind,

Re: Newbie's 1st Review

Hi M89,

First off, well done so far. Your portfolio looks good for a 25 year old. There is a great temptation to have a huge portfolio of companies with great yields and at your age I certainly wouldn't discourage this, however, and isn't [more]

Re: morrisons staff cuts

A great deal boils down to individual store management, in my experience. I recently visited 2 Tesco stores at either end on the country. The Tesco Extra in Edinburgh was notable for the lack of vegetables in the large vegetable section, lack of [more]

Re: Lump sum

Hi Mark,

What would I do?

Well, one idea would be to sell your Premium Bonds and add that to your cash and go out and buy yourselves a really nice campervan/mobile home and spend the next 2/3years "doing" Europe. But [more]

Re: Why Munroman is wrong

Just checked Trustnet and a certain fund that is subliminally promoted here seems to rank 232 out of 258 unit trusts/OIECs in the same game. Could someone please explain what went wrong?

Re: Manchester and London IT

How does this trust manage to pay such a high yield? Does it have a lot of leverage? The shares it holds yield a lot lower than thestated figure

Re: TR Property - Final Results

Sadly, no mention of the substantial increase in ongoing charges from 0.80% to 2.08%. Is this one of the unmentioned reasons for the dividend not matching the increase in earnings?

Another Trust that has yet to address the iniquitous [more]

Re: return of value

I have to say I don't follow the rationale of returning cash to shareholders and then borrowing to fund acquisitions.
