cassini: Sold at 388p earlier this week. Drax has a decent divi considering my much lower buy price but in the end, what with the (more than) total recovery from the lows I have decided to see if my money can be better put to work in another share.
cassini: Over 400p, new closing high and highest price since the beginning of 2019.
scotches: The analysts have now managed to observe that the share price has gone up so up go their "forecasts". "Share price forecast The 10 analysts offering 12 month price targets for Drax Group Plc have a median target of 390.00, with a high estimate of 475.00 and a low estimate of 248.00. The median estimate represents a -0.76% decrease from the last price of 393.00." Tomorrow will be Tuesday....
scotches: Is the FT page on forecasts up to date. Broker forecasts on price usually track an improving share price even if generally incapable of predicting future direction. hTTps:// "The 10 analysts offering 12 month price targets for Drax Group Plc have a median target of 355.00, with a high estimate of 400.00 and a low estimate of 248.00. The median estimate represents a -10.22% decrease from the last price of 395.40."
cassini: I'm in a quandary as to whether to take profits. Consider this scenario - someone buys 500 Drax shares at 200p, then it rises to 400p. His original outlay of £1000 bought shares that have now doubled in value to £2000 and the dividend is 8.15% - relative to his original buy price. Not bad at all. He gets 16.3p per share as a dividend (£81.50 dividend annually in total). However the dividend is actually 4.08% to a buyer at the current share price of 400p. He could sell up DRX and with the proceeds buy £2000 worth (1751 shares) of, say, DGOC instead. With a dividend of 10.85p/share (maintained through 2020 incidentally), his DGOC investment will return a dividend of £190 per year. He is now getting over double the DRX dividend payment (if held in a SIPP, as DGOC is subject to withholding tax). Considering the original outlay into Drax was £1000, that's a bit like getting a 19% dividend on the original £1000 investment inside of a year. All this supposes of course DRX does not climb in value much further and DGOC does not drop or stop paying the dividend. You can replace DGOC with a similar high yield share. Of course Drax could climb higher - it's been much higher in the past, but it's met resistance at ~400p since 2015. Decisions, decisions...
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 ;)
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.
