I don't think IFRS EPS is particularly important but that's a huge reduction rather casually dismissed.

Perhaps it just shows how volatile this measure is which is not realy what you expect from "steady eddie" CSN

CSN always a little slow to the party.

If the dividend is increased in ine with the historic trend, the lsat few months have provided a great entry point.

Fingers crossed, as I am currently heavier CSN than I have ever been before. In fact my net price is up to 25p per share after trading and dividends!

CSN has done me very well over the years, taking the dividends and trading the range. I do hope that continues and the next dividend gets me back down to (nearly) net zero cost - with no allowance for inflation of course.

The disconnect between rising dividend and flat or falling share price range is a complete mystery to me.

Almost the lowest the share price has ever been and the main man last week saying are going along tickets boo so I will purchase some stock on his word.

Share price really preforming poorly compared too others in the sector. Surely these must be vulnerable for one of the bigger boys at this level..

The range does seem to be lower over the last year. 281 used to be my buying price for limit orders to purchase, which I lowered to 261. The current top of the range is more difficult to gauge. As I said, only 5 months ago i sold at a tad over 306. Absent anything to frighten the horses, I would hope to get 300 on my next sale, but I may have to wait longer than usual. With the larger of the half yearly dividends (the split is roughly 2:1) coming up, I am more than content to be patient.

THe mystery of this stock is that regular dividend increases over many years have not been matched by the share price.

Another interesting income stock you may like to look into is Smiths News. A modernising, gung ho management all but sank it a few years ago, but a new team has reverted to the old business and (fingers crossed) seems content to stick to the knitting. It is at present ex the bigger of the two dividends it pays annually. A rare stock which has come back from the dead, and looks well set for the foreseeable future.

If you are feeling brave try a slice of DEC! Ideally buy in a SiPP to avoid withholding tax.The dividend is at present about 30% and the price flat on its back. Read the (pretty good) DEC BB for an insight to the business model and what is going on at present.

Best of luck.

Hello all.
I see a few handles on here that I recognise.

Was pointed here by a post from DBADVN on the general insurance and assurance thread (no EPIC title - but that's another story).

I hold LGEN and PHNX in a SIPP and ABDN in certificate form from floatation day.

I was hoping to pick up some vibes about this stock (never looked at it recently) and reading the last few posts on here I have jumped in with a £5k purchase. £2.6015 gor me 1910 shares.

Now, just recently I've bought and sold (twice) £5k of ABDN and made £250 then £240. Not a huge amount but enough to keep me happy. This over a month.

I'm guessing that the next ex-div is early April - payment in May. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Strikes me that if the share price rises sufficiently before then I can sell at a profit and if not, add CSN to my divi payers long-term.

Financial stocks are always a bit of a worry, as one can never be sure what time bombs they may hold. That is especially so when interest rates have risen higher and faster than anyone thought was even on the cards 18 months ago. That will radically have changed quite a few financial equations.

That said, even if interest rates drop so far or so fast as many expect (i don't think they will), at present Chesnara is comfortably below te bottom of a trading range which has been remarkably steady for many years, the dividend has grown reliably and looks pretty safe, and the big payment is only about 3 months off.

I have had a limit order to buy in for some time. It triggered at 260.2 this morning.
That buys back 10% more shares than I sold 5 month ago at just over 306, with a respectable amount of cash skimmed off on the round trip. I have placed a limit order to sell at 300, though that looks optimistic at present, but I am by no means averse to picking up the next dividend!

I have been working the trick for many years now. The dividends and 'skimmed' trading profits have long since paid for the initial share purchase made donkey's years ago at 179, and that holding is now very much larger, for no additional capital outlay.

Why the share price has been so low for so long (not even reflecting the steady rise of the dividends paid) i have no idea. So long as my model continues to work, I do not much care!

The most frustrating thing for me personally is that it does pay a stonking divided but every time I go online to get a quote I am quoted a ridiculous spread .

Good luck with it

I am extremely reticent to buy anything in the market as is reflected in the paucity of the share price movements.

Was looking at the main indicators on the FTSE 100 250 and the like and I see a real disconnect to how they are shown when looking at the reality of the actual share prices

As I have said elsewhere it is a moot point so will just have to sit it out until the shares I have invested in recover sufficiently

That will take some time given what i perceive as nervousness in the markets.

Got badly caught out way back in late 2019 by decisions taken then at the behest of the powers that be and can see a similar scenario occurring again

Will have to sell something before I can buy so sidelined at moment

I do like an arbitrage (my own terms/understanding) sometimes they come off

Anyway find your posts quite well thought out though I don t understand some of the more intricate commutations mentioned.

Last post on Phnx being a case in point.

But prefereed to the Tikk Tokkers (Added here,Bought a few) etcetera etcetera

Any way all the best and good luck.
