Well done to those that bought below 220p. I had some at 230 and then chickened out in October as it fell. Just goes to show that you can imagine all sorts of dire things happening when the share price falls, when there's nothing much new being reported.

If LGEN can focus on what they do best in next 2-3 years this company revenues and dividend will continue the 5% trend increase. That would do me nicely. Let’s see how the new CEO shines in March

Financials treading water waiting for results from inflation and the flurry of FY results in the next weeks. Hoping for positive number from LGEN and the big divi announcement. Patience is a virtue in this business GLA

Legal & General
The Daily Telegraph

Legal & General yields 7.8%, twice the average on the wider FTSE 100. Payouts have been reliable, with even the pandemic failing to prompt cuts. The stock has gone nowhere for the best part of a decade, but an “extremely low valuation” means capital gains are a possibility. Hold for income (248p).

I use XIRR for modelling projected returns But record realised returns as a simple CAGR - and in my head shorthand just capital gain/loss plus divi yield

I've posted my total returns on LGEN previously :-)

pvb - yes, dividends should be taken into account when evaluating long term performance and have been included in LGEN figures listed.

I’ve used an averaged CAGR in each case to provide a simple long term performance comparison in each case.

I don’t use XIRR as i’m content with annualised CAGR to give me a sufficient comparison.

Dividend paying shares / trusts currently make up about 25% of the overall value of my portfolio. LGEN is my largest dividend paying holding. My intention is to reduce this level of exposure to below 20% by year end.

I'm now firmly in the camp that believes receiving a regular dividend simply masks poor overall long term performance.

But shouldn't they be a part of that overall long term performance? Obviously it is better if there is significant capital gain as well! Do you use, say, XIRR to evaluate performance of a share?

Yes. Perhaps my post hasn’t come across as intended. What I mean is you may think you’re doing ok when you focus on the dividend in your total return figures. I haven’t got my figures to hand but they’re not a million miles off the following:

My capital return -3%, dividends to date +45%, total return +42%

However, i’ve held this for years.

If I look at LGEN average annualised return over say a 10 year period it’s 5.8% pa. So a total return of 75% over 10 years.

Compare that to the L&G International Index Trust. A simple global equity tracker. It’s delivered a 10 year average of 11.7%. So, 202% over the same period.

That’s what I mean when I say dividends can mask overall returns.

Don't understand, if you measure on a total return basis ,(div + capital growth) then it's a comparable measure across all shares

I was asked to create a thread some time ago for this very purpose and as you can probably guess, it wasn't used.......

Hi GN,
Like you I would like to put more money in my wife's SIPP to reduce death duties however my AJ Bell paperwork says: -
"Excess Contributions
The clearest reason for a refund is when it meets the 'excess contribution condition'. This can only apply to personal contributions: refunds not only can but must be made where the member has made contributions in excess of their UK relevant earnings for the tax year"
So I guess we are stuck with the £2,880 limit.
