paulo435: We are now sitting at around the previously rumoured takeover price, to sell or to hold ? Good divi, think I’ll hang for a while yet
paulo435: Highest price since January, good climbs recently ;)
paulo435: I don’t always agree with articles on this site, but in this case it’s a decent summary ....
boozey: Sudden price surge this morning...takeover rumours raising their heads again?
paulo435: 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.
castleford tiger: 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.
boozey: :) 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.
nick rubens: 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: 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!
nick rubens: These takeover news articles can be dubious and sometimes fed by someone wanting to exit and needs to create liquidity to bail out in size. Having said that DRX does look a bit vulnerable and a potential target, so I've decided to keep hold for that potential as I expect holders won't let go too cheaply.
