|Stockwatch: Best yield on the market (3/3/17) - HTTPS://tinyurl.com/n7rq3pw|
I should probably have used "might" instead of "must" in the post.
hiho hindsight and all that|
|You could well be right, Bantam.
My only point was we should probably avoid hard and fast viewpoints - which I suspect you'd probably agree with.|
|Possibly quite a lot or possibly not.
My theory is that with 48% of the country voting to remain and thus having little confidence with brexit, they are quite likely to remove funds from British based companies such as TW. where the company is based and run in Britain, depends on the value of British land and buildings and reports in pounds, to overseas companies such as RIO where although quoted on the LSE it is a joint British and Australian company and should the pound go down the pan the value of the RIO shares would remain roughly the same as they are based on the value of their worldwide assets being dug out of the ground.
A bit like putting your money in gold I suppose.
Anyway, was and is just a theory. Time will tell as always.
All imho dyor as always.
btw I used RIO just as an example, not suggesting anyone should buy them or not.|
|It is surely unwise to allow political opinions to dictate investment strategy - look at all the Republicans who dumped their portfolios after Obama's election and thus missed out on a huge bull run.
The obsession that Brexit will be some sort of calamity makes no sense and flies in the face of (admittedly limited) experience so far.
Must be brexit fears imho.
Housebuilder Berkeley shrugs off Brexit vote to hit profit targets

|Housebuilder Berkeley shrugs off Brexit vote to hit profit targets
Housebuilder Berkeley Group has said it expects profits at be at the top end of forecasts this year, as it signalled the housing market in London and the South East had "stabilised".
In the seven months since the Brexit referendum result, Berkeley said new home sales had fallen by 16%.
But in the last two months reservations were higher than a year earlier.
The London-focused developer also said inquiry levels remained "robust" and pricing continued to be "resilient".
It said the market had been adversely affected by a number of factors apart from Brexit uncertainty, including changes to stamp duty, the challenges of securing planning permission and the demands to provide affordable housing.
As a result, new housing starts have fallen by 30% in the capital.
However, the company said: "Berkeley is uniquely placed to maintain its high levels of production in London and the South East and we are onsite in production on 58 sites."
It added that there were a further 22 sites in the pipeline.
Shares in Berkeley rose by 5.26% to £31.19 in early trade.|
|Most unusual for TW to be one of the top risers in the house building sector today ,I do wonder if they are being lined up or are lining another builder up for take over|
|Don't think its being walked down as such - just the usual people behaving like sheep and selling these names to buy commodity stocks up 6% plus which you couldn't give away two days ago.
In a super market if you get deals like two for the price of one, people buy more, and conversely when prices are rising they put less in their basket. In the stock market sadly its always the complete reverse. Nevertheless I have been very happy to buy more TW this morning|

|Price being waked down again!|
Must be brexit fears imho.|
|bovis getting slated on bbc the one show|
|I'm not expecting to see 200p+ until we get nearer the special dividend ex date.|
|Will pi sell now brexit underway|
|m4rtinu - RSI is certainly looking overbought short term. A pause would probably be healthy at this point. Will be interesting to see if psychological 200p barrier acts as resistance.|
|This is up 25% since start of the year! (When) will profit taking occur?|
|Soon brought to heel though.|
|Good Start !|
|It's Gonna Be A Great Day For Builders !|

UK builder Bovis in talks with Galliford Try after rejecting bids
British homebuilder Bovis has rejected a bid approach from rival Galliford Try but remains in negotiations about a possible deal, the firm said on Sunday, adding it had also rejected a proposal from another suitor, Redrow.
"Discussions with Galliford Try are ongoing," a Bovis statement said. It said an initial all-share offer had been rejected, alongside a share and cash bid from Redrow because neither reflected the underlying value of the firm.
"The board also concluded that the Redrow proposal was not in the interests of Bovis shareholders as the cash element of the offer would require shareholders to crystallise value at the current Bovis valuation."|

|icarus..maybe night flights? ;-)
Heart or head? Wow - a difficult one at this time of day - and different occasions require different approach I guess.|
|DR_S, 4% annual return is not so bad in this climate. If I could guarantee 7% I would take that all day. Maybe just not as greedy as others, I should have said I would be disappointed with less than 4% overtime.
Yes there is some irony in my name there. Icarus was escaping the labyrinth and failed as he set his ambitions too high, literally. The name serves as a constant reminder to not let the heart rule the head I guess.|
|Icarus - settling for 4%? With that name you need to aim higher and higher ;-)
Personally I set myself benchmark of 7% to justify risk, as opposed to hoped for return.
I reckon you are smarter than day traders - in the words of Clint Eastwood - "A man has gotta know his limiations".
I follow same logic as yourself, investing in fundamentals rather than sentiment.|
