27 Feb 2015 @ 18:23

The folks over at International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE:IAG) are on Cloud 9 today as investor confidence was reflected in a 3.66% share price increase and a volume that was 44% higher than average. IAG closed at 580.00, up 20.50 points on a volume of 10.5 million shares traded. The share’s high for the day was 595.00, establishing a new 52-week high for the parent company of British Airways and Iberian Airlines. This activity was stimulated, at least in part, when the company published its full year results as of 31 December 2014. CEO Willie Walsh reported that “British Airways’ operating profit increased to €1,215 million up from €762 million last year.” Iberia moved from a €166 million loss in 2013 …

LLoyds Finally Announces Dividend!

27 Feb 2015 @ 09:24
It’s been a painful wait for over six years for Lloyds (LSE:LLOY) shareholders. But finally a dividend has been announced today! It comes in at 0.75p per share, smack bang in the middle of forecasts. This was actually my instinctive thought of what it would be just before going to sleep! The results overall from the BANKING GIANT are pretty positive. Underlying profits surged 26% to 7.8...
 

BRAND NEW SUPERMARKET WAR SCOUTING REPORT PART THREE!

27 Feb 2015 @ 07:38
So let’s have a concluding thought on these two supermarkets, Aldi and Morrisons (LSE:MRW). If you asked me as a shopper which one I’d prefer to use just on ‘experience’ it’d be Morrisons. However if I was thinking about investing in one as a shareholder it would be Aldi. It is a very tightly run operation. There are no ‘extras’ given to shoppers- no...
 

BRAND NEW SUPERMARKET WAR SCOUTING REPORT PART TWO!

26 Feb 2015 @ 14:28
You go into Aldi. There is no music playing. Yellowish tiles are on the floor. The aisles pretty cramped, maybe just over a metre across. But everywhere the prices are cheap. This week they have reductions on these already cheap prices. 4p off tartar sauce. This warrants red paper proclaiming the discount. There was about 50p off the already good value chicken. They promoted that on a TV...

S&P 500 rally fails to extend after Yellen's comments

26 Feb 2015 @ 12:15
The S&P 500 Index dropped -0.08% on Wednesday, reversing earlier gains as US benchmark indices fluctuated around all-time record highs. The previous day’s comments from Federal Reserve Head, Janet Yellen, had stock markets off to a head start, however, that rally petered out as the session went on. Despite another dose of dovish comments from the Fed, stock gains among US retailers were...
 

BRAND NEW SUPERMARKET WAR SCOUTING REPORT!

26 Feb 2015 @ 11:40
Just back from Aldi and Morrisons (LSE:MRW) for a ‘weekly shop’. This was quite a bumper trip. You see, Aldi have been aiming to entice customers with a ‘£5 off voucher’ along with other vouchers, crammed into a newspaper I don’t like at all. I still bought two copies though. In total the combined sum of these vouchers will save my father and I £14. We even...
 

Moving is Hard!

26 Feb 2015 @ 01:10
You know how you can get pretty satisfied in your comfort zone (no matter how low it is) and just don’t feel like getting out of it? Moving is hard! Not only for humans (believe me, I experienced it once again yesterday and it’s no fun) but apparently also for most currencies on the forex dance floor. Particularly for Mr. Euro, Ms. USA and Mr. Japanese Yen who can’t be...
