|I also hold. Prospects for growth look decent. Yield is ok. Certainly worse places to be. Emerging market exposure still not really in favour but its time will come again.|
its the oxman
Thanks for dropping by!
Weird how some threads are lively and others very quiet. Especially PRU, a lot of small investors are holding, it is a big whale in the FTSE, it trades a lot, etc. Yet no talk.
I hold PRU by default, when younger and less knowledgeable I suffered a bout of herd behaviour during the dotcom era and switched a bit of my savings on Egg.com into Egg shares at IPO. To say that Egg was no Facebook/Google is an understatement. The few hundreds in Egg became fewer hundreds. Prudential had floated Egg, Egg sold itself to Citigroup, which in turn offloaded it back to Prudential. I chose the PRU shares instead of the cash (big losses) and became a PRU holder by default. Then I counted the investment as pure loss and forgot about it, shedding a sarcastic tear at the odd couple of PRU shares bought from the divi being reinvested.
Ten years or so later, when updating addresses after moving to a new house, I actually looked at my holdings and realised that PRU had gone from 400p to 1,400p. While I agree that it has not done much the past few years beyond staying in the 1,200-1,500p bracket, my effective yield is slightly higher than the ADY of 2.67% currently stated. I added a bit more at around 1,400p last year.
The Chinese expansion is indeed subject to risk. Communists have their own interpretation of the rule of law, but the strategy remains sound: The emerging middle class will need financial products. They are doing well in South East Asia as a whole. In fact reading about the company in the news shows that it is in effect more and more of an Asian company listed in the UK.
I know one should not be sentimental about stocks, but PRU remains a boring and safe part of my portfolio. That being said, I was considering taking my profits a few weeks ago because of the sleepiness issue... Glad I did not!|
|I've just sold into the rally, who knows where they gonna go. Divi isn't good enough for me to hang on, holding l&g where divi is better, also aviva where I think the share price more likely to rise. Pru I think is being held back by uncertainty in China. G.L though vacendak, cld see you were lonely on here so thought I'd add my 50p worth inflation! Used to b 5p!!|
|Sale of business in Korea:
This must have been a good deal. PRU is jumping by more than 6% at the moment.|
|Ex-date today: 12.93 per share, up 0.6p from the same interim last year.
As usual, steady as she goes.
Now if that share price could go back up a bit for good instead of hovering at £13-£14, that would be slightly more exciting.|
Hello there, feeling lonely around here. Nobody seems to talk about PRU, which is odd as it seems to be traded every few seconds at times.
About the GS guidelines, I am with you there; not much trust in them but it costs nothing to hope.
The bad news are mostly from M&G, their funds are performing poorly.
"M&G and Aberdeen howlers top the ‘Spot the Dog’ funds" said the FT in a July 29th article.
I guess this is what is holding down PRU. That and the bane of low interest rates for life insurance and pension management.|
|Not sure Goldman's have a great record with their recommendations but nice to see.
Prudential PLC PRU Goldman Sachs Conviction Buy 1,418.75 1,415.50 - 1,750.00 Retains|
|Some good results announced today in this RNS
|Getting battered like most financials at the moment.
Still holding, hoping still to sell at the £20 a share that was expected not so long ago.
Holding PRU is meant to be safe and boring after all.|
|and sold them as well , some time ago thankfuly. I just came on here to see what is happening . ....|
|Read Panmure's note on Prudential (PRU), out this morning, by visiting hxxps://www.research-tree.com/companies/uk/life_insurance/prudential_plc …
“Following the 2015 year end results we are cutting our operating earnings forecasts for 2016/17 by 8% and 10% respectively. Although our new EPS forecasts are lower than 2015, it is worth highlighting the latter benefitted from c£400m of one-off UK ‘management actions’. Excluding this positive impact we are forecasting further continued progress in 2016 over 2015. The 10p/share special dividend announced in February was in line with our view that Pru is overcapitalised and has excess capital to return to shareholders. Although the share price has been under pressure this year reflecting lower investment markets and others have cut their target prices we maintain…̶1;|
|Hey I am fine Churchill - just minor confusion based on incorrect advfn site - already sorted|
|Get a grip fellows. Go into the Prudential website and you will find a payment of
36.47 which includes a special payment of 10p payable 20th May 2016.|
|My apologies - looks like the advfn data wrong|
|No one seems to be buying for the 36p divi first thing tomorrow|
|What incompetence as Alliance 'in the know' News puts an RNS by Prudential Financial of the US on the Prudential LSE listed bulletin board.Not a good advert for a service I try to ignore.|
|Usual spin about speculation on Capital Controls in China! The spin caused the share to fall, obviously instigated by some hedge fund maggot! Today China announces they will NOT introduce capital controls! These shares should be £20 / share! Hedge fund speculators should be arrested and sent to prison for 35 years for fraudulently trying to rig the market! On the other hand rather than costing tax payers money sending them to prison, a 35p bullet would be more cost effective and then feed them to the maggots. A common sentiment when referring to hedge fund shysters!|
|crazy pricing today. its the february sales|
|So I am avoiding high growth/volatile shares so decided to buy some of these last month. Bad decision ! Down 7% in half a day - what the heck is going on? Are they in the oil business?|
|What's the divi like here? Looking for a little safe ish haven...|
|Is this share at the turning point yet and will the next results surprise us on the positive side?|
|Going to get in on these as I see them as good value due to the worries over China. Long-term demographics (growing Asian middle class) and Chinese growth are still positive.
They may fall further in the interim but this will be an opportunity to top-up.|
|I've added today - nice to see a completely silent board, not that anyone on here would affect the share price!|
