|Carl79, don't worry about it, that's just an error - it was showing exactly the same in my account. Your money will be paid in full into your broker account once it's all done and dusted.|
|Lucky you,,,,,,a nice profit coming your way probably mid July|
|when / how do we get our money...my broker is still showing these in my portfolio but at a price of 33p!|
|Why the trades today. Deal done!!|
|Sold out at 53p. Couldn't be bothered to wait for the cheque to arrive - other fish to fry and needed the cash. Cheerio to you all. See you on other boards no doubt.|
|Within 14 days of the scheme effective date = 1st July assuming the scheme is approved by the court (should be a formality.)
So by 15th July + any broker admin time.|
|When do we get our cheques guys.|
|I reinvest my divis automatically. Will my CHU divi, paid today - at some point i guess, not there yet - be reinvested and then against that total i get 53.3p or is there another arrangement? tia
I do not think 0.5% in 2 months is a good return btw...i am used to outperforming that quite consistently...touch wood it continues :-)|
|0.5% in 2 months is a good rate of return cf the building soc. Provided you are 99.9% there will be no problem with the vote. of course! I am not even 99% sure, so pass on adding.|
|Also, why are people still trading this share - there is a firm 53.3p offer so what is the point of selling below or even buying for that matter given the potential gain is less than 1%...possibly negative after costs|
|i dont get an option to reject - just
1 - accept cash
2 - accept loan notes|
|Nigel Moat - it looks like a done deal - Chaucer is history. I have registered my protest vote against the takeover, but I reckon it's a forlorn hope!|
|Is the sale now all but a done deal?
I have held a substantial number of these shares for many years enjoying the respectable dividends despite the poor stock vauation. When a few months ago other interested parties started sniffing around Chaucer the market pushed the share price to a more respectable 62p - surely this was more like its value than the now agreed figure! We seem to have finished at a sale price which pays heavily for a couple of recent natural disaters which long term would have had little effect on Chaucers performance and is what insurance is all about!|
|I guess you're right. They can't have much faith in their own investment skills if they are willing to pay that level of opportunity cost, however.|
|Tax - the loan notes allow holders to spread any gain over a number of tax years, either to make use of future allowances or match against future losses.|
|Why would anyone want a loan note that pays just 0.25%, they can't trade, and ties up their money until 2017?
|any word from the AGM? id like to think mgmt at least got some "in the face" dissent re the offer|
|I agree entirely TiM. I would rather that we stayed independent and continued to collect the dividends. The company would appear to be in rude health and set for better trading. Shareholders are being mugged by management. No doubt they will do alright out of this and sod everyone else.|
|I voted against the give away of the company.
Looking at today's statement confirms just how cheaply the directors are trying to give away the company|
|Any timescales on this T/O? When will we get a further update? tia|
|Worst premium of a buy out Iv'e heard of. Rubbish offer!!|
|im resigned to the fact...would love a last minute bid though... I quite fancy a nice surprise!|
|Paperwork through - like I said seems like a done deal.|
|Yep interesting times - not as easy for the average joe to make good money as it was 12-18 months ago...I could all but print money back then!! lol|
|Interesting debate. I too have a load of BT - worth more than my CHU - and only just back in profit having bought a load at 220+ and then averaged down disastrously.
Some good property REIT stocks to look at. I have a shed load of IFD and would be happy to double up, IRET is also back on the watch list having sold out for a nice capital profit some months ago. ILH is on the short list as well.
I did very nicely on prefs before selling them on as prices recovered and yields dropped. Still quite a few yielding around the 8% level, but the downside is no growth in divi and limited upside in capital appreciation.|
