|speedsgh: looks like NWS is definitely into a trend reversal. will be interesting to see where support will kick in.
according to Digital Look forecast dividend for current FY is 9.97p giving a prospective yield of c6% at current share price. however i suspect forecasts for the dividend will be reduced in the coming weeks following monday's statement.|
|edmundshaw: Interesting selection.
FWIW, I had SSE up till it reached about £13, then started to feel uncomfortable (I went a bit overweight in stocks on the basis of some low risk yield like SSE due to low interest rates). Sooner or later the politicians will wake up and do something about the ever-increasing dividends above RPI - it is just a money-printing monopoly that gets just a bit greedier each year. It cannot go on forever, and I don't know when it will stop - or, more important, when the market predicts it will soon stop. At that point yield will crash or the share price. Or both. Really become a bit speculative now imo, though nothing wrong with speculation if that is your bag. Haven't looked at UU. recently - held years ago for similar reasons. Just an opinion.
Will look at the others, cheers.|
|d40eq6: Fair point fenner66 but the 7% lot by and large carry a bit more risk. On these the yield could halve or the share price could halve before I was at risk on income or capital. Anyway it's a nice problem to have on a share that keeps delivering good news.|
|fenners66: Yield on your original investment but not on current share price. There are others out there paying 7%...|
|lord gnome: At first read these seem to be a sparkling set of results to my untrained eye. The divi increase gives a good yield of 4.8% at current share price The historic pe is either 9.2 or 11.3 depending on which eps figure you prefer. Neither would indicate that the share price is stretched given that management have indicated that their growth plans are on target. Coupled with a good outlook statement I would say that we are set fair for another 12 months of growth, good dividends and another increase in our share price. What's not to like?|
|lord gnome: 'Dividend of the Week' in IC. On line today and no doubt in print on Friday. Won't do the share price any harm at all.|
|speedsgh: Markie - I was not heavily invested here. Initially bought for the dividend but was sitting on a large paper gain (+77%). Recent rns of large disposal of shares by CEO helped me to make my mind up + I have recently sold up + banked the profit. That's not to say that the share price won't continue to rise from here but I reached the view that the main gain had already been had in relation to the level that I had invested. Good luck.|
|lord gnome: Nothing to worry about there Skinny. Hopefully that will settle the nerves of any doubting Thomas's. The share price will sort itself out. Carry on Holding.|
|speedsgh: Lupins - none that i'm aware of. however NWS goes x-div next weds (9/1), followed by IMS the following tues (15/1) so that may be generating some interest. share price has been consolidating for the last 2 months so it may be starting its next leg up. hoping that the IMS will add fuel to the fire.|
|shammytime: Aaaahhhh! Sorry, I didn't think of saying it in a regionalised accent :)
Worst case scenario for NWS share price we're at the bottom of the range. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a few buy recs over the weekend - 115 next week for sure.
That shallot! :-D|
