Very encouraging jump today off 508p, especially coming off its bottom RSI. 528p also cuts through the 30ma. All good!For the Chartists amongst us we should see 600p+ in next 6-10wks.

From today's Chronic Investor Blog on IC website... Five things we learnt in the results season - HTTP://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/2017/03/29/comment/chronic-investor-blog/five-things-we-learnt-in-the-results-season-ClBKEiCw7RBTIuAoYX27qN/article.html Cash in the age of uncertainty At the IC, we like to bang on about the importance of cash flow when assessing a company's performance. This approach is all the more important given the uncertain corporate landscape. Two examples are Royal Dutch Shell (RDSB) and Aviva (AV.). The oil major managed to improve operational cash flow by two-thirds in 2016, as income rebounded. The insurance group's business segments threw off more cash, allowing for an increase in capital returns. But this short-term income certainty should not be mistaken for long-term business sustainability. After Shell's austerity and Aviva's Friends Life synergies, both groups may have to reassure on the longer-term plan.

Not a well frequented thread, is it?! lol. Anyway, baby boomers are getting older; illness and financial need of other sorts amongst the old is increasing, if for no other reason than weight of numbers. How many people are aware of the Aviva Home Income Plan, which allows people to borrow for life against the equity in their home, without having to make any repayments?? And the interest rates are favourable to Aviva: 5% to 6% + even with bank base rate at an all-time low, compounding too, as no repayments are made. (A 6% interest rate doubles the debt in a 12 year period, so £100,000 borrowed requires a £200,000 repayment after that time.) This is profitable business for Aviva, and secured on bricks and mortar. And that's without the profits from other insurance, savings and pensions business as well. If anyone is looking for a Brexit-safe business in which to invest: AV. is certainly one. And it comes with a forecast 5% doubly covered dividend too. Disclosure: long Aviva.

Yes to, paying down debt and returning more cash via bolt on acquisitions and bit extra dividend.

- Aviva's operating profit rose by 12% to £3,010m in 2016 with operating earnings per share up 3% to 51.1p. Operating profit and operating EPS exclude the impact of the change in the Ogden discount rate in UK general insurance, which has been classified as an exceptional item. IFRS profit after tax fell 22% to £859m (2015: £1,097m) including the £380m after-tax charge due to the reduction in the Ogden discount rate. Group chief executive Mark Wilson said: "Aviva's results are simple and clear cut: more operating profit, more capital, more cash, more dividend. And there is more to come. "Aviva's financial position has been transformed and a distinctly stronger balance sheet and excess capital give Aviva more options. "We are now actively planning a capital return to our shareholders and debt reduction in 2017 and will invest further to grow our businesses. "The numbers speak for themselves. "Fund management delivered a breakout year with strong positive net flows and operating profit up 30%. "General insurance is growing, with operating profit up 17%, and in UK Digital we have doubled online registrations to five million. "We are becoming a digital disruptor for the benefit of our customers. "In 2016 we made strong progress on our commitments of cash flow and growth. "Reflecting these results, we are increasing the total dividend per share by 12% to 23.3p."

Let it go Alphorn! Sold my buy from yesterday, it felt good - it's purged some of the stain of Moss. Still holding my £1.80's from nearly ten years ago though! Great results, Wilson on R4 just now very bullish on the UK and the 45% that comes from abroad. Acknowledged hiccups with political uncertainty but was also clear that Ogden wouldn't be an impact over the longer term and seemed to think that Govt would see sense.

More on the mooted return of capital... from Part 1 of Final Results: In view of our strong Solvency II ratio, there is now capacity to deploy surplus capital. In addition to underpinning a progressive dividend, we have four priorities for capital deployment: 1. Organic growth, including capital required to support new distribution partnerships; 2. Bolt-on acquisitions that strengthen our core markets; 3. Returning capital to shareholders, via a share re-purchase program or special dividend; and 4. Paying down hybrid debt obligations. These priorities are not mutually exclusive and we expect to pursue all of these options. Specifically, we plan to take steps to return additional capital to shareholders and reduce hybrid debt during 2017. Liquidity at the centre is £1.8 billion at the end of February 2017 (February 2016: £1.3 billion). We generally intend to maintain centre liquidity balances in excess of £1 billion.
