Most stocks are down today Nick - more Covid lockdown fears etc kicking in, I don’t believe it’s anything specific re Drax as far as I’m aware but instead a general dip across the board

Are we going sub 200p again, was it 130P!!? That was a wierd over reaction and hopefully won't happen again, but I suppose anything can happen when fear kicks in.

Paulo I was of course talking hypothetically Just 4.2% capital growth gives you 10% net. this year I am 110% up tiger

Castleford, capital growth is important to me as much as a dividend payment so I wouldn’t always agree with the approach you suggest. Whilst obviously the yield improves as the price takes a dip, it’s the underlying capital growth I am after - dividends alone won’t cover me if the price falls too significantly. Not that it is in this case, I have the benefit of both growth and good yield from my entry price. To answer your question, I have Airtel Africa in my portfolio - which yields around 8% at the moment - just one example. Also, don’t forget, attractive dividends can also reflect a higher degree of risk.

with 17p dividend to come even after paying 300p a share its 5.8% can someone tell me where that return is possible. 7000 shares in an ISA returns 1190 in profit tax free a year. What happens to the share price does not matter. Any dips you just add.

:) The price has held up remarkably well given the fact it went XD and the state of the markets generally. Strategy now is to sit tight during the turbulent autumn months and perhaps add further at the end of the year.

Looks like the dividend milkers have been in ...and now that it’s gone ex divi today we see them ditch the stock and ride off. Par for the course!

Yes, very good point Boozey - law of averages means it’s likely a better bet attributing more weight to the CFO moves ie who are traditionally the more frugal number crunchers! Re drax I’m particularly wanting to see how their model is panning out. Some old generating stations purchased from Iberdrola need put to good use and ditch the coal - which is where they are seemingly heading, positive. I’ve not been monitoring too closely my holding in these guys other than the share price due to other distractions in my portfolio so need to catch up! Not fully convinced with Biomass but the approach is obviously better than coal and emissions being negated which seems ok with the politicians so far. Renewable storage is key here and how much they can accommodate since lockdown has meant record lows in demand / over supply to the grid.

Paulo, I agree with your sentiments. I also attribute more emphasis to a Director Buy by a CFO as they tend to be by nature more cautious executives. Anyway let's see how it goes next week in advance of XD.

The fleas on this dog seem to be keeping everyone away - mores the pity Paulo. Still, one lives in hope. At least I didn't blow a load of wedge here like Woodford.

More interested in when this takeover is occurring so I can bail for a smaller loss than the one I currently have! :)

Personally I wouldn’t read too much into senior management purchases. Large non exec purchases however can give a good indication - since they often view the business from the outside in and are a bit more impartial. A combination of both - then yes something can be stirring and would raise my eyebrows more, it is just how I view it anyway. A few hundred k is nothing to these boys and at times directors are restricted as to when they can buy and sell - all depends also on their own circumstances, tax year etc. Also beware of those that intentionally buy or sell in order to send a signal to the market - they know what impact they have. I’m not saying that this is the case here, not at all, but just a word of caution. Take a look at Talk Talk senior buy ins for example and see what you make of those. Something afoot?

Drax had great run up to the ex-Dividend rate after the Final Results - same thing this time around too. XD is 20th August.

I see DRX is rising, one of very few companies paying a dividend and growing it, which is in contrast to it's last 10-15 years or so of being listed. Will be interesting to see if does survive being independently listed and not swallowed up by another utility co.

Boozey With the return on his cash via the dividend it looks like a very sensible investment to me. There is little return on cash anywhere tbh. As you can see I stated that I too started buying more yesterday and I have today. He has the inside track on this so I will be buying even more. Tiger

Given the overall state of the market, you have got to give Andrew Skelton a lot of credit for that brave purchase - and CFO's are notoriously conservative with share purchases. With most sane investors in despair at the state of their portfolios, such a transaction is music to our ears. Mr Skelton knows how to send a message to the market. Drax is an island of sanity and safety in an otherwise sea of red in my holdings. At a time when most BoDs are struggling to cope with adjusting their business models and under pressure from shareholders accordingly, as for once they actually have to really earn their corn, a big shout out to the Drax Board for keeping a steady ship. They deserve investor support. Not many listed companies have achieved this in the last 6 months aside biotech and pharma. On another point, the purchase confirms there is no known bid looming for the company as it there was Mr Skelton could not have bought today. Let's hope no Directors will be selling to dampen this feel good moment!
