RingerAgree, but look at the past special dividends, still gone up. I don't think any effect whatsoever. Last dividend ex a couple of weeks, we went up.

Sorry to put a damper on that. You seem to forget that with the special dividend your share holding is reduced accordingly so you are not, immediately at least, any better off. However from past experience it would pay to reinvest the dividend in Micro shares to keep them at the previous level as the share price will hopefully keep going up!

"Our" Bonus is a $400m return of value: at 229.4m shares = $1.737/share Last year's dividends were: 16.94c in January (cf this upcoming 29.73c at 23.67p) and 49.74c in October. Soooo... calendar 2017 looks like: 23.6p in January upcoming + 49.74c MINIMUM in October (probably a fair amount more, say 50% = 74,61c = 62p) + 173.7c Bonus = 144.75p TOTAL = 230p If GBP = $1.10 then we get 23.6p + 74.61/1.1 = 67.82p + 173.7c/1.10 = 157.9p) for a Total of 249.33p So, your 225p not far out. All depends on the mid-year final dividend uplift to last year. One way or another that's a yield of 10% this calendar year, at an share price of 2150p. And, on a running dividend (excluding the Bonus), makes 4.00%. The 4.00% makes a 50% uplift for this year's final dividend look a reasonable estimate imv.

Analyst on Bloomberg said £ could be 1.10 to dollar, by the end of the year, wow boosts our dividends.

These are my calculations for return of funds. They said $400m return to shareholders if deal goes through, that's roughly £327m with the weak pound, say £1.22 to dollar. 229m shares in issue, equals return of £1.42 special dividend. If normal dividend 80c as well this year at £1.22 to the dollar that's another 65p. Surprised I can't see a analyst who as picked this up yet. May be wrong but think I'm right.So my calculation 207p return in dividends this year.That's with the £ at 1.22 to the dollar.

PhillisThere is a filter button, you just been filtered, suggest you filter me.Shareholders this year, should have nearly a 200p return in payments. The weaker the £ the better.

Oh dear, our attention-seeking simpleton is trying to convince himself that he will not be nursing yet another loss. As soon as he has sold out, it will be back to his usual bilge of: Target 1935p they said flat to -2% revenue. So what is going to shift this price up, p.e 35 deal with HP not until 3rd quarter 2017. Time for a protection order?

Typical ¨next year we´ll be millionaires¨ bilge from our resident fool who glosses over the fact that his latest gamble has left him out of pocket, again.
