|@MrThomas - Yes there are headwinds over at Easyjet. Whether one remains invested there is a question of whether you believe the company will adapt to current issues. Dividend is to be a % of profits so I expect it to drop this year, but still show a fair payout.
HSBC is exciting in my opinion due to the release of US assets in 2017 that's expected.
|it's all good at the moment - USD earnings, decent yield (still), not much inv banking exposure, more focussed mngt blah, blah, blah.
compare that to earlier this year when share price was £2 cheaper - no eps growth, China worries, costs too high...etc etc
Something will come along and change sentiment again....wish I knew what...|
|Good finish today considering XD.|
|Likewise Ribble, I think there is still upside in the share price yet, especially if Mark Carnage cuts our rates again whilst the US raise theirs. I think 650p would be a tough call for me and might prompt me to sell and re-invest elsewhere.|
|Warranty, agree with you regarding dilemma (although my profit is currently about 5%). But with the ongoing share buy back I think this has a fair way to rise yet, even if there is another European financal crisis.|
|Everybody quotes Warren Buffet and that he never sells his shares through thick and thin, just adds more when prices are low but in fairness he only actually holds shares in about 6 companies like Coca Cola and Heinz with the rest of his earnings from businesses he owns. I'm not sure that these days the buy and hold scenario is always the best bet since so many things affect the share prices in current markets. My HSBC shares are up 40% since Brexit so it's a dilemma whether to sell or hold for the admittedly very attractive dividend as the shares could easily fall again if the European bank system implodes as is entirely possible it could. Even with a good yield it'll take a few years to make up for the potential 40% capital gain I've currently made.|
|Interesting I had Easy Jet and sold at a loss just think it's a good company but the head winds are out side their control of course may buy latter if the dividend yield good etc
Think with banking stocks one needs to review them more often then in the past due to the interesting times we in but I holding on for both capital and dividend while I can
Thinking of buying standard charter which I did hold a few years ago and did very well but sold out|
|I think many of us will be asking the same question risky but then that's what investing'S all about, when to buy, when to sell. Like you I bought HSBA for the yield but obviously you can't ignore a potential high capital gain as a bonus sometimes either.|
|Maybe that's the way - but I bought in to HSBC in the first place for the income - the capital gain is a bonus. I did do a small top slice at 560 in any event :-)|
|Top slice,and take your profit,and hold the rest.|
I post as StrictlySlick over on the LSE Forum. Used to have an account here but that was back in 2012. Always found this site a bit harder to use, but am willing to try again :-).
HSBC is heading towards my personal target price of £6.50, bar the recent dip.I think the price rise is being heftily compounded by the pounds devaluation making the dividend look more and more attractive, as I'm sure many will agree. I'm certainly about the devaluing pound - this is nicely offsetting the drop I'm experiencing over in Easyjet - though I think the drop there is way overdone.
The question is soon going to be for me, will I sell up when my target price is hit - Or do I hold on and enjoy the dividends moving into 2017...
|This has done a lot better than I through capital gain plus good dividend yield that covered and of course in $ but these days still to each the shares as we live in such uncertain times let's enjoy this ride|
|This reminds me of Gordon browns sale of UK gold in the late 90's.....announced the sale 2 months in advance (hs announce share buyback here in advance) the world and his wife sold gold (been buying here) and job done as price goes out way. Except here we are also being paid a healthy dividend for being long.|
|Seems l need to set my target higher as this is just rocketing!|
|Well done to all holders seems to be running smoothly|
|chugging along just nice, glad I held onto my stock.
|Topped up again this morning.
I feel this will continue to creep up till ex divi bar market sell off then naturally come off a little after but not to these lvls in my opinion. Cant ignore the yield here and with the daily buy backs its been a no brainer last few months.|
|Well personally I think i'd be crazy to sell out now. Don't forget that at £6 we're still only at 2013 share price and if it's in your ISA like mine are the divi alone is worth keeping it for. I accept that taking a profit is entirely sensible but often it'S better to be brave and hold on for the continued rise unless you particularly need the money.|
|They said up to 2.5bn should be near to a third in but no reason to garantee 2.5bn buy back.|
|Any idea how much more they need to do on their buy backs?|
|I think 650 is possible plus the div is good. I just think 600p is the resistance point and once breached will fly. But always top slice when you can. the odd 1%-3% is not worth it sometimes to hang around for.|
|well the divi is still attractive and HSBC are still buying stock
lets see what happens, I seem to remember peeps saying sell at 500p
looking for new trading range 600/700
|Leave something for the next man|
|It's harder to pull out when it's right sometimes the greed can cost your profit.|
|It's good to know when to take a profit. It's almost impossible to call the top.|
