I'm staying fully invested at the moment. Hoping to ride this wave further. Barclays: Trump Presidency May Unleash Reagan-Era Stock Boom Donald Trump’s presidency may unleash the same kind of investor enthusiasm that drove stocks to record levels during the boom times of President Ronald Reagan, according to strategists at Barclays Capital. hxxp://www.newsmax.com/Finance/RobWilliams/Barclays-Donald-Trump-Ronald-Reagan-stocks/2017/02/16/id/774027/

- Aviva's operating profit rose by 12% to £3,010m in 2016 with operating earnings per share up 3% to 51.1p. Operating profit and operating EPS exclude the impact of the change in the Ogden discount rate in UK general insurance, which has been classified as an exceptional item. IFRS profit after tax fell 22% to £859m (2015: £1,097m) including the £380m after-tax charge due to the reduction in the Ogden discount rate. Group chief executive Mark Wilson said: "Aviva's results are simple and clear cut: more operating profit, more capital, more cash, more dividend. And there is more to come. "Aviva's financial position has been transformed and a distinctly stronger balance sheet and excess capital give Aviva more options. "We are now actively planning a capital return to our shareholders and debt reduction in 2017 and will invest further to grow our businesses. "The numbers speak for themselves. "Fund management delivered a breakout year with strong positive net flows and operating profit up 30%. "General insurance is growing, with operating profit up 17%, and in UK Digital we have doubled online registrations to five million. "We are becoming a digital disruptor for the benefit of our customers. "In 2016 we made strong progress on our commitments of cash flow and growth. "Reflecting these results, we are increasing the total dividend per share by 12% to 23.3p."

Let it go Alphorn! Sold my buy from yesterday, it felt good - it's purged some of the stain of Moss. Still holding my £1.80's from nearly ten years ago though! Great results, Wilson on R4 just now very bullish on the UK and the 45% that comes from abroad. Acknowledged hiccups with political uncertainty but was also clear that Ogden wouldn't be an impact over the longer term and seemed to think that Govt would see sense.

More on the mooted return of capital... from Part 1 of Final Results: In view of our strong Solvency II ratio, there is now capacity to deploy surplus capital. In addition to underpinning a progressive dividend, we have four priorities for capital deployment: 1. Organic growth, including capital required to support new distribution partnerships; 2. Bolt-on acquisitions that strengthen our core markets; 3. Returning capital to shareholders, via a share re-purchase program or special dividend; and 4. Paying down hybrid debt obligations. These priorities are not mutually exclusive and we expect to pursue all of these options. Specifically, we plan to take steps to return additional capital to shareholders and reduce hybrid debt during 2017. Liquidity at the centre is £1.8 billion at the end of February 2017 (February 2016: £1.3 billion). We generally intend to maintain centre liquidity balances in excess of £1 billion.

The last part also mentions that 1 in 5 dividend cheques from 2015 have not been cashed! Amazing.

Pah! Share buybacks are a waste of shareholders' money. Give me the cash. Great numbers and a great outlook though. Another good year ahead. £6 by Christmas - no ramp intended.

Wilson on CNBC says rather will move towards a payout ratio of 50%. Capital return next year more likely to be a share buyback.
