How I missed the boat when I sold out."
Uhh? This was taken out months ago.|
How I missed the boat when I sold out.|
|Hi all :
Did surprisingly similar - bought 5000 in June'00 at 47.5p, then 5000 in Aug'00 at 53p ! Bought a few more in PEP (can't remember how many), got 304 more in the SCRIP issue in 2001.
Also wrote to David Cust asking him why on earth did they send me a cheque for 42p as the remains from the SCRIP issue (too little to buy a whole share) rather than send it to charity or keep it, bearing in mind the administrative expenses. To his credit, he did write back and say that he had instructed the Registrars to send the residual amounts to charity, but somehow it hadn't happened.
All in all a good, steady investment, and having held for so long, a bit strange to realise that there will never be a report / news item / dividend from them.
Where can I find another little gem like this .. can you help again, John Lee ??|
|I bought these in 2001 10000 cost £5040 value now £ 12100 with dividend of £1508.
My 9th best earner.|
|That's it then.|
"Have you ever looked at Hitachi Capital ?"
I have heard of them but never looked at them before. I am looking now. Thanks.|
|i aint sucking up robbie - but ur a man of the ppl!! thanx 4 the reply!|
|cap - sold them for 119.75 - my web man pressed 2 by mistake! Right profit taken though!|
|Thanks pvb, thought I was missing something with so many small sellers today !|
|pvb Have you ever looked at Hitachi Capital ? Similar business in many ways and with a div yield of around 5% and growing. A higher yield of 7.5% is Chesnara which is a life company running down its business.|
|Yes, assuming it goes through.|
|So if I hang on to these I get £1.235 right ????|
|i think robbies finger might be too big for the 1 and 2 keys on his laptop on their own and hit them both together ...............|
|Hang on?? iv got these shares and the sell price is £1.20...Robbie Burns sells his for £2.19 how come??. Can i sell mine for £2.19 or have i missed the boat???pls advice...Robbie if u out there let me know????|
|Agree pvb - good value, div increasing, robust stocks like BCS are hard to find. Why do siemens want it anyway?|
|"But why not bank the money and look elsewhere for a similar stock_?"
Well I'm going to have to! The problem, as ever, is in not making a bad mistake.|
|Siemens_ AG, apparently.
I made a mistake before, I see that the Int Div is INCLUDED in the offer price and so won't be paid if offer accepted.
I got the Official notice via an email from Company Alerts, but I still can't see it in the BCS messages on CA. I'd have thoght the CA email alerts might lag the public postings on CA, not the other way round!
|yes pvb see what you mean - you were after long-term growth and yield. But why not bank the money and look elsewhere for a similar stock?|
|But - interim dividend_ raised 7.5%. That's the other and important part of the story as far as I'm concerned. I have two holdings of BCS, one inside a PEP_ and one outside; I see that the respective average original dividend_ yields are 8.5% and 8.12% - and that's before the latest 7.5% increase.
I'm going to miss it when it's gone; I'm not a trader_.
|personally more than happy - 20% in day will do me.. agreed eventually BCS would have been worth more than 120 a share.. but it would have been a long wait|
|a bit stingey... the offer me thinks...still a bonus.|
Final divi 2.06p paid 5th May|
