|Events at STM with QROPS does highlight the regulatory threat to tax avoidance products.|
|thanx CWA1 thought so,
i personally think they should have cut the dividend this year to strengthen the balance sheet and to give funds for expansion|
|Ex 3.6p today|
|As obviously is the 109.5p paid out in dividends over the last 10 years|
|Well it certainly wasn't a good buy at 260p but that's irrelevant as to whether it is as at 100p.|

Just adding up the numbers; in the last 10 years they've generated 109.2p of earnings and paid out 109.5p in dividends.
I'm sure you are correct but the company floated at £2.60 just over 10 years ago so an investor holding throughout it's listed existence is down 50p and has had funds tied up for a decade.
|Well it looks like the market finally got what it had been anticipating for the last 10 years.So now I guess the shares can finally start rising in future anticipation of improving business and future dividend rises.|

|benefits cash flows straight away|
|so why not cut this years by a third and maintain the following year|
Not really strange, profits from existing FUM are being matched by new business costs and the relatively chunky dividend is eating into cash funds so has had to be reduced. The problem they have is that new business is lower margin than existing so requires a larger volume to replace the profitability of any business lost.|
|Miton topping up recently just before results
perhaps they have been leaning on management to make these changes to become a growth company|
|Will add on any significant weakness....I like these.✔|
|Indeed does seem strange.
Have a small holding here, might exit if the share price doesn`t fall.
|maintained dividend this year but cutting the following year
seems strange way to do it unless they are hoping that growth in the coming year
may give them a chance to maintain or reduce the cut the following year|
|Interims this week. May or may not make a significant top up based on back of what they say.|

|Why is this so lowly rated? It appears to make a decent income with high margins and pay them out to shareholders. Am I missing something obvious ?|
|Yes received from HL,but after hours last night.|
|Not got mine yet-but no worries, should appear next week.|
|Should have received my dividend yesterday, but, still no sign, have others received theirs ?
|Margins are much lower now than 4-5 years ago since they changed the business model.|
