Strongly agree re buybacks Jeffian.Banks wasted £billions buying back ahead of their shares crashing in the 2008 crash. Then they reissued them and far more than they had bought back in heavily discounted rights issues at a fraction of the buyback prices. Those who did well were not those supposedly rewarded with the buybacks (they lost heavily)but those buying in the rights issues or after them. And they are now getting dividends too. E.g. From Lloyds. No wonder Directors love buybacks. Their bonus payments are often based on eps, and fewer shares in issue means higher eps - but note often NOT an increasing share price.

"Never let the tax tail wag the dog 128." Hear, hear! A lesson I've learned the hard way. Jimmy Durante? "Dey said Napoleon wuz mad. Dey said Rasputin wuz mad. Dey said Louie wuz mad...." "Who's Louie?" "He's my brudder. He WUZ mad!"

Never let the tax tail wag the dog 128. I never think of CGT when thinking of getting out of a share and taking profit. 20 pct hit for me yes if it's not in the sipp or isa but that's life.What's cgt basic rate these days? 10 pct.....20 pct for higher rate taxpayers.Take it on the chin if you are tempted to take some profit. You're allowed £11k tax free anyway. Any of your holdings in an isa then no tax issues.Spread betting for far dates for long term holds also a fine way of avoiding CGT.

I purchased my first tranche of HSBA on the 1st August 2013 - exactly 4 years ago today. Since then I have been adding to them quietly, purchasing some as low as £4.684, and now have a fraction under 54,000 shares. The Chinese economy seems to be good, whilst this absurd Brexit fiasco can only get worse and is bound to drag the UK economy downwards. So, in theory, I should hold. But how much higher can HSBA shares go? If I sell, I will be caned by HMRC, as I have nothing to sell at a loss to offset a gain which will be approaching £70K. Selling a partial amount does not seem any wiser.... All I can think of is that wonderful song by Jimmy Durante, (which really shows my age), "Did you ever get thr feeling you wanted to go, but then you had the feeling you wanted to stay" Hey Ho! Decisions; decisions. What would you do?

Sorry mikepearce45. I only found this site by accident! I have never posted a thread before. So how do I access the 'Revived' thread please?

Apart from what finkwot above has posted, I would repost your 7826 on the new "Revived" link, as this one is supposed to be closed, for a bigger audience. Making a profit can be a real bummer at times - wish I had your problem! Good luck

I'd sell enough to use up my CGT allowance. £11,300 profit. Bingo. Personally I'm holding on, but I don't have anywhere near that amount.

I assuming that the 'law' of supply and demand applies, as when the 'buy back' shares are 'cancelled' it effectively leaves those in the Market potentially more likely to retain value. The maximum number of Ordinary Shares that could be repurchased under this Buy-back scheme is 1,986,691,641. That's quite a sizeable chunk

I must say that, although I get the theory that reducing the shares in issue increases NAV/eps for the remainder, I really struggle with the idea that share buybacks are "returning surplus capital to shareholders". They are returning all the surplus capital to some of the shareholders errrr...... who are no longer shareholders because they've sold their shares! Whether Mr. Market rewards the rest of us with an increased share price is a bit of a lottery. The press comment says that it is a good thing because simply increasing the divi may be unsustainable in the long run but so what? It could be done by a "Special Dividend" (which is a one-off by its nature) or a Return of Capital (unfortunately, now treated as a dividend for tax purposes) and then all of the surplus is spread across all of the shareholders rather than just those who agree to sell. Still, Mr. Market seems to like it so far.
