LOL But look at the relative dividend yields - one does buyback and pays a measly divi , one finishes a buyback and pays a handsome divi......

bracke re: I sold my holding in AV. a long while ago but follow them for old times sake. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In the circumstances, I'm surprised you didn't think to mention the recent AV. share buyback, completed Sept last year - ironic really! As for fenners long awaited letter to AHT about share buybacks, perhaps he should be writing to AV. as well, to seek reassurance as a prospective shareholder? :-)

Thanks Bracke. I asked because I have not got the time to do the proper research - but noticed its at the lower end / higher div and I could do with some more divs (since AHT is not paying enough!/as much as it could/ should ).

Good day fenners I sold my holding in AV. a long while ago but follow them for old times sake. Following the large fall it has pulled up and has been operating for most of 2019 in a range between 407-440. It's currently at the bottom of the range so buyers may consider it a buying opportunity as shown on the daily chart shown below. Scroll below the daily chart for the 4 hour which shows the more imnediate price action. AV. DAILY CHART The four hour chart gives a close up of the recent price action. You will see that the share price reached the ML of the blue Mod Schiff PF. It then dropped and has made two lower highs. It's now at the cusp. Continue up from support or drop down to the ML of the red PF. If it does the latter it will drop below the last significant low (black horizontal line) which would not be a good omen. If I bought this share now I would be watching price action if/when it rose to the dashed black line or if it fell below the solid black line. AV 4 HOUR

Bracke are you still following Aviva ? Noticed their dividend yield currently about 7.5% with maybe a small increase to come ? Are there any skeletons in the accounts / charts that you are aware of ? Cheers

Good day uppompeii I look forward to giving you a good squeeze but no hugs, people will talk. In the meantime the share price holds at the low 2000's. It seems that the markets think that Mr Trump's tariff increases are a ploy and that the Chinese will come to terms with the USA. Either way a large move up or down in the markets is in the offing.

ian I did post "first support zone" no mention of "arbitrary intermediate support". Neither did I 'forecast'. I referred to 'events' and 'suspect' knowing that a simple tweet from Mr Trump could have a considerable affect. It would have been remiss for me to have not mentioned such a possibility. You need to be very cautious when casting veiled aspersions in the direction of Elite Gurus. They are not to be trifled with unless of course you would like a visit from 'The Management'! As for uppompeii........unfortunately the practice of placing Enemies of the Gurus into an arena with lions is no longer considered PC. However perhaps the offer of a free trip to Longleat may prove useful........

Good afternoon bracke, Ah, I see, I had no idea that 'low 2000' was anything other than a arbitrary intermediate support point between your forecasts of 'will either send it back up to 2200 or down to maybe even 1700' Thanks for your clarification, and I'm sure uppompei will be in touch on the 'trumpet issue' in due course :-)

Good day ian You only had to go back to my post 56751. I wouldn't want you to over strain yourself so I have copied the relevant paragraph for you. "Given the above it's not surprising that the share price failed to 'hold on'. Under normal circumstances the first support zone is in the low 2000 but...........I suspect 'events' will either send it back up to 2200 + or down to maybe even 1700." BTW. When I posted "I have little doubt that this comment will attract a certain person to comment about 'blowing own trumpet' so thought I would provide the following link to add a little culture to his day." I was not referring to you. Good day Disco Yes indeed. I certainly get the brickbats on the very rare occasion when I get it wrong.

Good evening bracke When claiming success, it would be helpful if you identified which of your manyfold forecasts you were claiming had found the target... I'm reluctant to trawl back though too many posts, so a post number or date might be helpful if we are to give you any credit you deserve :-) In the meantime, looks like there will be more bloodshed tomorrow, unless Trump pulls something out of the hat...

Comrade Trump (do they say 'Comrade' in Russia these day?)will likely be extricating himself from the previous proclamation of tariff increases to commence on Friday. Given his aim of keeping the markets high he knows that if he goes ahead with the tariff increase the markets will drop and may forget to stop until they are some distance down. In the meantime I note that the share price has dropped to first support as mentioned previously. I have little doubt that this comment will attract a certain person to comment about 'blowing own trumpet' so thought I would provide the following link to add a little culture to his day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwZis3tF2OM

Yes of course. As if Mr Trump or others were benefiting...........but you have to admit how profitable it would be to have a 'heads up' on Mr Trump's tweets. Friday will be interesting given that the additional tariffs come into force. What chance 'everything is beautiful' and no additional tariffs. The market flies and Super Trump proclaims his prowess.........because he can eat six burgers at a sitting.
