Where do you get 26bn quid from? I believe their debt is actually around 12bn. Still can't work out why people talk so much about IMB's debt levels - they're less leveraged than lots of other "less risky" companies. Anyway, interest rates are only heading one way and it's not up - financing will only get cheaper

kibes, On the narrow question of whether IMB could never pay off its debt with the figures you give, interest rates IMB pays on its debt would have to top 7% for it not to be able to have a chance of paying down the debt. OK, I haven't subtracted the divi from the profit figure, but I'm just wondering why you think, on the figures you give, that IMB couldn't pay off the debt if it was determined to do so - since I doubt it pays 7% or over on that debt. One financial statement I read on a website quotes annual interest as being about £560m. I do find financial data confusing though - for instance, the divi cover given in various sources is either 0.51 (as on ADVFN) - which looks unsustainable - or 1.32 in other sources, which looks just about OK. I have figured out that ADVFN uses the definition of dividend cover as EPS Basic/Dividend PS, whereas others may use EPS (adjusted)/Dividend PS. The latter gives the higher fIgure. I need to learn more about how to read financial statements ;0)

IMB has net debt of £26 billion. It makes a profit around £1.8 billion a year which is not likely to increase much. It could never pay the debt off at that rate. Why is it so high, what has the money been spent on? And meanwhile it thinks it is fine to pay a dividend of 11%. It just seems daft to me, are they borrowing money to pay the dividend?

I was optimistic from much higher up than £20 CASSINI, so I’m hoping it’s not a dead cat bounce, for IMB anyway. Actually, I think the market has settled a bit following the acknowledgement that the virus will spread. Sounds counter productive but as we know, it’s uncertainty the market hates and now they know the prognosis and that governments are going to add stimulus to help ailing companies, it seems to have reassured them a bit. I don’t expect the market to rise much until the Covid19 situation improves but neither do I expect any massive falls unless something extreme happens. Just a gradual tick up for IMB from here will do me for the moment, I’m well under water with it.

All depends whether this is a dead cat bounce (I'm talking about the FTSE here as well as IMB). The downtrend is unbroken, looking at the chart. I am optimistic about IMB but then again I've been optimistic since £20. Still it's the brave ones that get the prize (or die trying).

I'm starting to think of adding more although I'm majorly down from 2018 aleady. Begining to think IMB could be one of the biggest climb back-ups this year from this point, and I'm a pessimist!

More money selling traditional tobacco if that’s what the consumer wants.

Sounds like me in some ways, “look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves” is a very good maxim I find.

You are missing the point about cutting the div. Yield may return to stupid levies if price sinks but firm is conserving cash and has scope to grow div again...giving directors a pat on the back when they report an impressive div growth policy over the recent history. To keep throwing cash out the door is a stuff of nonsense especially when it's proving not to support the share price.

alex You were right not to buy Bitcoin. As an asset it doesn't generate any income stream and therefore its intrinsic value is worthless. It relies on bigger fool theory and you could have lost all your £50K. That wouldn't be the case buying an asset that generates income.

I read a book Digital Gold, about the rise of Bitcoin, who were involved, and how it works, etc. It was very interesting. I had a spare £50k that I was thinking of using to buy some Bitcoin, then trading at $200 odd, but I couldn't get an account set up due to not having all the information they required (as I was travelling at the time), so the moment passed. At the peak a year or two back it would have been worth over $3m. The reality though is that I would probably have sold after it doubled or trebled ... the real money goes to passive holders.We are all like fisherman with our one that got away stories ... LOL.

yep my sister did better than me after the 2008 /9 crash, she know`s nothing about the stock market. I picked out 5 stocks for her, showed her how to open a HL account. She bought them and just forgot about them, she even forgot all her login details for the account. when she eventually sold she averaged 2500 % gain.. Me on the other hand,i got trigger happy with the sell button......... WJ.

In December 1990 , i was in my early 30's with not a lot of money to spare, i started buying shares in Certificated form through my bank, i did around 200 pounds a time, and i considered buying Next at around 17p. ( next had an intra day low of 10p if i remember correctly) I didn't and of course the recovery was astounding....i did buy one or two that did well, but not like next!! Of course i would have sold them at a quid or so...but you tended to hold certificates much longer, I didn't put some shares into crest ( RR , BAE, AZ)until about 10 years ago... So you never know!! I also worked with lady who was paid in Apple shares for some work her firm had done for them when apple was on its knees, if she had managed to keep them she and her family would be millionaires now

I think it's just general market conditions. My observation is that if a share has been hit by sentiment/profit warnings then it's momentum is downwards ... and then it hits rock bottom. However, if a global crisis surfaces then it goes way beyond rock bottom ... even if that valuation looks insane. Next was £8 something at the bottom of the 2008 crisis ... that's what fear does.

Was initially a nice bounce, now its dropping again. Is this stock jinxed?
