5G developments

Came across this unheralded article on the BBC news/technology page yesterday and thought it might be of interest to VOD shareholders. It appears that the University of Surrey's 5G Innovation Centre has managed speeds of 1terabit per second download [more]

Re: Revenue reserves

G12,

Reducing the reserve and increasing the dividend - isn't this what RCP have done?

I wonder if this will become a trend? Hope so.

Re: Revenue reserves

Okay, here's a definition of revenue reserve from an "A" Level accountancy course. About my level of understanding. Just so that people understand where I'm coming from.

Re: Revenue reserves

Hello G12,

Here's a look at an extract of one of Luniversal's revues of the Basket of Seven (B7) from last year. (I hope he doesn't mind me borrowing his excellent work) It shows revenue reserves in terms of months. The interesting anomaly [more]

Revenue reserves

Just a thought. Having pored over Luniversal's many interesting comparison tables of investment trusts, I noticed that there is quite a divergence between the various ITs revenue reserves. It got me thinking. Is there really any good reason for [more]

I think you will find 3i is in the FTSE100. Around 82/100. Slightly more than any OIK that I can find.

Read this, Dave.

It's a little bit of "old news" now, but Dave needs to take on-board the lessons learned in France if he wants to take the fight seriously.

Hudl

Sorry to be the bearer of good news for Tesco, but 2 of my grandsons received Hudls for Christmas. They were absolutely delighted with them and after I was allowed to "have a go", I must admit I was mightily impressed with the graphics. [more]

Re: Which one?

Hi Arb,

The "Doomsters" don't seem to get out much. My impression of the UK economy gleaned from driving from one end of the country to the other fairly frequently are that "the UK economy is motoring".
