I do the same and it works quite well, often buying a few days prior to exdiv and selling day before. You don't make a lot each time but it seems quite a good way of earning with reduced risk as you are only briefly in the market. My way anyway as have been badly burnt in the past buying and holding. Not sure whether to buy a bit sooner with this one as its quite a good dividend and there will be a few others with far more than me interested in it.

To be fair, these days many yield stocks rise sharply ahead of ex dividend dates as yield funds need income. They then fall by more than the amount of the dividend as the same funds sell out. I occasionally sell immediately before the shares go xd (at what is an artificially high price) and buy back the following day at an artificially low price. It usually works but is sometimes marginal. I sold part of my holding yesterday and am expecting to buy them back after the divi.

Making a statement such as "the share price will drop equivalent to the dividend payout". That is one of the most basic financial principles and applies to all shares. Using the threat of the drop to portray doom and gloom is just a shorter trying to cut some losses.

The reason for the rise is that people realise that the UK is chronically short of housing and housebuilders will do very well over the next decade at least. They're highly cash-generative, pay out excellent dividends at a time when it's hard to get yield, are on a very modest rating even after the rises, and are less prone to cyclicality than hitherto. And houses are are about midway in the affordability charts. Sure, if interest rates shoot up it could get bad - but with debt of all kinds where it is the chances of any more than a modicum of tightening are low. What not to like?

For once a prediction that you have a half decent chance of being correct with, and we don't have to wait a decade. :) Naturally, shares do tend to get a knock when they go ex-divi. But I suspect it will be a short lived one here.

the reason for the rise is most shorts have closed(i.e bought the shares) otherwise they have to pay the dividend on 27th October(xd) date and the special cash payment I think The market is so dysfunctional the sp500 is now around the same p/e as at the height of dotcom boom! and the vix is at an all time low during a time of emergency economic measures..what could go wrong! The share price should drop around the same amount as the dividend(s) on xd date hxxp://www.barrattdevelopments.co.uk/investors/shareholder-centre/dividends

Taffee ....the same tired narrative and still BDev goes up. You should give this game up pal. You are no good at it. 5 or so years of your life talking this and other housebuilders down and they have done the exact opposite. Quit pal. Just saying like.

Anything can happen on the stockmarket and nothing is a one way bet Odey makes a good case... Time will tell... All the Evidence is out there that things are bad even today The ons says we are half a trillion poorer than we thought and there are Warnings about debt and housing bubbles on a daily basis.. Ignore At your peril

I was wondering how the shorts were going as this breaks to new highs - virtually every hedge fund manager - crispin odey for example has lost 60 percent of his clients money - one of britains largest - it still amazes me how people invest - the only proper way is to buy a quality share at a good price and then sit back and let the market take you where it takes you and keep reinvesting the divis!!

You realise that's not a scoop? 100-odd members. I've seen a Taylor Wimpey group with 1000+ disgruntled buyers. Anybody who has ever bought a new build will have a story or two (or twenty two!) to tell on defects.
