As I was saying last week, looking forward a year or so, the HSD share price and divi could be in a very different place to where it is today.

Today's 3p jump due to two trades going through with a gross value of less than £5k. There was I getting excited!

I did and also the one by NTV Unfortunately yours was an excellent piece but the cut in dividend needed highlighting for new investors mesmerised by the yield

From the Feb Half Year report The Board has declared an unchanged interim dividend of 3.6p per share. Whilst the Board also expects to maintain its final dividend for H2 2017 at the same level as in 2016 (5.3p per share), looking further forward, the Group's new business growth will require additional cash resources before we see the returns from this investment. The Board has therefore decided that, from H1 2018, it will be necessary to implement a reduction of 50% in the level of the dividend. So yes, from H1 2018 the dividend will drop to just under 5% yield but this isn't a fire storm. This is a planned investment in the business to enable it to grow. The projected growth has been well documented and we've been told just today, " Union Insurance and look forward to achieving growth in that area in the coming year." What I take from the news in the public domain is that the firm needs to inwardly invest a portion of it's very generous dividend cash to grow the business in the way it wants to and they find that growth prospect exciting. If all goes to plan that 4.5p'ish drop in the dividend over a twelve month period will more than be made up by an increasing share price Then if they restore (or even increase) the dividend back to original levels we'll look back on these days as the ones where we should have been buying. A quick look back over the chart for the 12 months prior to the dividend/investment news will show as average and fairly steady share price around 105p. (I've ignored the spike up to 140p). If in 12 months time they reinstate the dividend at the previous level that should take us back to 105p. Add on top of that the reason for reinstatement, larger portfolio, increased profits, where would the share price be then? Let's not be greedy, let's add a speculative further 10% so 115.5p, that's from today's 90p. In 12 months or so it is entirely feasible that we'll be back to 9.88% dividend yield (if you buy today) and be looking at a share price increase of 28% from today's levels. I'm totally fine with inward investment for growth. Osi'. P.S. Granted there isn't a guarantee that the div will be reined in for just 12 months.

osi they said they would half next years dividend for cashflow purposes this seemed a strange decision as most companies cut dividend straight away for cashflow purposes so why leave it a year the question now, that the board needs to answer is, do they now need to cut the dividend next year any way it is about time they got taken over and sorted out by a lean ,mean fighting machine a lacklustre performance for years

NTV, HSD are a fairly boring firm when it comes to lighting up the column inches, that's true. If however you want to put your money somewhere relatively stable and secure (if there is such a thing) and take near on 10% home each year,,,, HSD is where you want to be. For me stability and 10% in my pocket ticks a few boxes. Osi'.

Nice to the point update today. Funds under management growing but the two key quotes for me were: 1. The Group traded profitably during the period and remains strongly capitalised. 2. We are delighted with the positive reception from our distribution partners in the UAE around our alliance with Union Insurance and look forward to achieving growth in that area in the coming year. I read that as "We're growing but we expect to grow faster over the coming 12 months and your dividend is secure". Even after today's rise the data tells you that (if buying in at 90p) you're looking at a yield of 9.88%. I just don't see why more people aren't in Hansard? Osi'.

I'm in today. For the past five years this stock has been fairly steady regarding funds under management, dividend payment etc. No real dramas and a near 10% yield at this price, no brainer for a little purchase to bolt to the portfolio.

thanx CWA1 thought so, i personally think they should have cut the dividend this year to strengthen the balance sheet and to give funds for expansion
