The divi one is a tricky one to read, but my take is good- and it was well received in share price when announced. All info available but my take- total production exceeded targets from jan2017 predictions, good. Q4 OK, but not exceptional. Targets for next year OK- to achieve 4.3% like last year, it's in the upper side of the tonnes forecast but not the top, but still good growth. Abramovich increase good thing. Kekura feasibility study is only slightly late, but no warnings flagged so could be very good. Operating costs not flagged as issue, good. Share price today impacted by Fed news last night (20:00GMT) which caused dollar to drag back urgently, and gold to get hit- overnight rally has dropped and dollar weakening again which is good for gold.

Mmmmmm, so what are saying.......the divi will be reduced, and a special divi is unlikely. Is this double speak, in the update. Do they aim to cut the divi, but don't want to say it.

Well we have both sides now. I have also read they are looking to double production in the coming years so I am happy, dyor.

But the specials are after any demand from capital spending - I did not read every word but I picked up they are going to build a power station - I am sure that will draw a lot of capital spend - so I read that as do not assume specials and a re-iteration of the 20% can be seen as lower dividends. Production may get higher - but the yield is declining so that may not result in much move on profit.

At its December meeting, Highland Gold's Board of Directors adopted a dividend policy designed to reflect the Company's cash generation, profitability, balance sheet strength, and capital investment requirements. The Company anticipates total dividend payout for each financial year will be 20% of Net Cash Flow from Operating Activities. The Board may recommend the distribution of additional cash on the balance sheet through increased or special dividends should those funds not be required for capital expenditure or debt repayment. ================= "The Board may recommend the distribution of additional cash on the balance sheet through increased or special dividends" Special dvii.....bring it on.

That is why they stated last month they will pay specials also, to lift if necessary I would have thought. They are looking for production to be a lot higher over the coming years so dividends will rise if that happens, dyor nice discussing though.

Looking at the share price reaction my initial guess is that means dividends will fall - not what I was looking for. From the financials page it suggests cash flow per share as 34p last year 20% of that would be 6.8p Dividends last year were 10.4p So that would be a 34% reduction? Not good..... Any better calculations ?

Dividends per year with a chance of specials also, I would think, dyor.

I wish more companies would pay out dividends on a similar basis.

So what is the impact of this bit "The Company anticipates total dividend payout for each financial year will be 20% of Net Cash Flow from Operating Activities. The Board may recommend the distribution of additional cash on the balance sheet through increased or special dividends should those funds not be required for capital expenditure or debt repayment." ???

Shay Yes, just been reading a little myself, the output was higher than the guide last year so all good with a higher gold price achieved also, I am happy with the rns for what it is worth, steady and growing, dyor.

f66 They rose due to shorts closing (buying), it is also the fear that they bring, yelling how bad things are from all the media, if I sell I keep quiet. Why did the UK ban shorting the banks in the crisis if all is good with the practice, it might take an investment house a long time to acquire a position, but seconds for a shorter that does not own them to sell it, just wrong. Anyway enough talk about the shorting method lets talk constructive not destructive.

Europe does a lot of strange things - doesn't make them right. So when the share price here gets "too high" do you sell and bank a profit or do you say to yourself oh no can't do that it would have the same effect as a short ...... Maybe you sell and buy some more after the share price falls - and congratulate yourself on your astute timing.... its just the same. So maybe you could introduce some communist style market control and make it illegal for anyone to sell as a wave of selling can mean a surplus of supply and share prices fall...... It's supply and demand that's it - even CLLN shares rose last Thursday - proving that the most shorted share under the most obvious pressure can still rise regardless all it took was more demand than supply.

Gold was doing well on weaker dollar presumably build up to fed beige news that was ok so it corrected fast downwards. i assume this was the reason, not great for gold mining stocks but fingers crossed not too bad and gold will not reduce overnight although this isnhope not based on any fact

Investors should help each other to beat the institutions not hinder for goodness sake. That comment makes no sense what so ever. That is such a childish emotional statement I question if you actually understand the markets properly. Oh as in your style DYOR.

Thanks SR- I've scanned the web for an hour- the earliest dates I can find on any release of any info on results is Apr2018 which is odd- I agree info on Q4 should be sooner but can't find anything. Gold is zigzagging all over the place at the moment but I expect a rise today as dollar weakened last night and remains slightly weaker today.
