Dividend Declaration -

First Interim Dividend Announcement

· Declaring a first interim dividend of 8.0 pence per ordinary share payable in July 2024, representing an increase of 4.9% over the prior year's first interim dividend.

· It is the Board's intention for each of the first three interim dividends for 2024 to be equivalent to a quarter of Law Debenture's total 2023 dividend of 32 pence per ordinary share.

The combination of IPS' steady income and our strong reserves allows Law Debenture to continue executing its 46-year track record of maintaining or increasing its dividend payments.

This dividend will be paid on 4 July 2024 to shareholders on the register at close of business on 31 May 2024. The Corporation's shares will go ex-dividend on 30 May 2024.

To be fair, we were cruising towards £10 in early 2023, so there is still some catching up to do.

Over 8 pounds atm which is good news. As a retiree I like safe investments but I don't think a near 10pc return over 5 years is boring. I will take that performance all day long.

I'm with vacendak on this. For retirees like me there's a lot to be said for a boring investment like Law Debenture whose share price doesn't move up and down like the proverbial tart's knickers.

We've made our money and we don't want to take the risk of having to go back to work (that's if we can find a job) having lost a small fortune punting on the next big thing.

When I worked in the City in the late 1990s I saw quite a few people throw away a big part of their futures by chasing dotcom stocks.

This is not meant to put your portfolio on fire.

Like FCIT, the appeal is in its liquidity. Also it tends to trade at a premium a lot more than the rest of the generic global semi-trackers ITs. There is hardly any risk with LWDB, low interest rates, high interest rates, rain or shine... it will not have the swings of Scottish Mortgage.

This has a total return of 60% over 5 yrs. A compound annual growth rate of 9.8% if dividends reinvested..

Think I'm beginning to lose faith in this one. Since 1jan24: FTSE up 2.3%, my UK portfolio up 2.3%, LWDB down 2%. Yes there's a divi, but still a rubbish performance. There is a slight hint of an upward channel forming, so I might try and be patient.

'I still need to top up on weapon manufacturers with the NATP ETF to inject some proper evil in my portfolio though'.
Love this. Cheered me up no end.

A sin stocks fund/IT would be good. Bright ideas welcome.

@thamestrader

I raised this problem with HL recently and they said it was a technical issue with charts via Google Chrome which their IT people were trying to fix (no timescale given, though).

I've got round it by using Microsoft Edge as a browser when needed instead (where the HL charts display with comparatives etc. just as they used to on Chrome).

When using HL charts, I like to start by going to the funds section and bringing up the 5 yr chart of Fundsmith. This way you can overlay multiple equity charts on the same graph. Doing that with LWDB and the Lyxsor etf shows LWDB had a 60% total return and L100 had 20% since Sept 2018. Interestingly LWDB beat Fundsmith on the same timescale.

As noted earlier, the attraction, and most of the performance, comes from the Independent Professional Services (IPS) component. They even admit it fuels the dividend and allows them to do "a bit of growth" under the UK Income denomination.

I also like the fact that they are a bit lighter than the rest on ESG and do not feel too ashamed about holding oil companies. I still need to top up on weapon manufacturers with the NATP ETF to inject some proper evil in my portfolio though. :)

That being said, this is still indeed a steady-as-she-goes IT so it will not turn £100 in a million within one's lifetime.

Yes that's a fair point. But still not sure LWDB is knocking socks (but do agree it's differentiated).

Surely your not comparing like for like. The tracker is an accumulation lwdb is not.

These HL graphs have not been working for a couple of days now (for me at least). The 'at a glance' tab is fine, but under the 'charts & performance' tab, the graph doesn't load. This is annoying as you were able to put several comparisons on one chart.

I did say LWDB was differentiated, but that's only thanks to the real business within. Otherwise, all these ITs are just beige megacap punters.

But if you edit the "FROM" to 2008 on here, and click update:



That's the tracker. Then do the same on here:



400p to 1,200p, or 250p to 800p. The socks are still on.

Lwdb knocks the socks off a ftse 100 tracker over the past 15 years.

It does differentiate LWDB, but on a slight premium? Was at a discount of around 10% for years.

Also, the major holdings of LWDB, MRCH, CTY:

LWDB - Shell, BP, RR, HSBC, FLTR, GSK, RIO
MRCH - GSK, Shell, BATS, RIO, BP
CTY - Shell, BA., ULVR, BATS


A FTSE100 tracker would save you about 0.7% pa, compound.

Needless to say, you'd find similar holdings in EDIN & TMPL.

Can see an argument for LWDB (but not on a premium), and can see an argument for eg playing discounts on others. But otherwise they're just a beige soup of mega-cap FTSE100's, with the stockpicking at the edges, when they get it right, destroyed by the compound charges. 1% pa of fees/costs add up hugely over years.

i like LWDB for the fact it has operating income as well as dividend income. TMPL managers are a class act, perfect for current market conditions

I have become a fan of ITs like this one over the last year or so, holding MRCH, CTY and LWDB.

Now that I have 12 months' performance to review. Annual returns sep22 to sep23, including dividends have been 22% for LWDB, and 12-13% for CTY and MRCH. But september 22 was a major dip, so probably not a fair reference point. However whichever way you slice it and dice it, LWDB is best of the three.

I have recently added a few more EDIN and TMPL into the mix, so let's see how they get on.
