superiorshares: zac0_4 Just did a spread bet a couple of weeks back. I am still sticking with my £3 pound ish target by 2024. However I wont be waiting for that . A profit is not a profit unless it`s in the Bank / and all that. Futures are pointing to a re bound this morning. In the short term all you need to do is look at the Countries restricting Travel. Me being Thick !.. Am I correct with this . MRCH issues shares to pay their un-covered dividend are these new shares then entitled to the uncovered dividend ?

ctrader3: if u bought 5k of MRCH a year ago your 5k would be worth £8,200 including dividends, all figures rounded up or down for ease of explanation. MRCH yielded 7.5% then but now yields 5% so your shares would earn £5,137 (compounded) in dividends over the next ten years. It's very likely the dividends will gradually increase but that's an unknown. IF u took your 8.2k and invested in another high yielder, yielding 8%, in ten years time your shares would earn £9,512 (compounded) in dividends. U may be able to, during the ten year period, to trade up again but that's also an unknown. Of course the dividend stream would need to be as secure as possible and repeatable.

ctrader3: 04/08/2021 14:04:19 ▼ European Assets Trust PLC - Netherlands-based trust that invests in European quoted small and medium-sized companies - Reports a net asset value total return of 13% in the half-year ended June 30, slightly ahead of the EMIX Smaller European Companies benchmark return of 11%. Sees NAV per share reach 146.19 pence on June 30, up 35% year-on-year from 108.47p and 10% higher than the 132.75p reported at the end of 2020. Declares first and second interim dividends for the period totalling 4.00p, up 14% from 3.51p a year prior. Announces total dividends of 8.00p to be issued in 2021, also 14% higher than the 7.02p issued in 2020. Chair Jack Perry says: "The majority of the first half of the year has been characterised by optimism of an economic and social recovery following the widespread vaccination programmes...Though the authorities are clear that they believe any inflationary spike will be transitory, the debate is likely to dominate market commentary into the second half...We are fortunate that our stock research is conducted in a large diverse region of opportunities. It allows us to uncover high quality niche opportunities at attractive prices, and this is what will drive our long-term returns." Current stock price: 144.00p, up 0.5% on Wednesday Year-to-date change: up 20% Dividends One consequence of the pandemic has been a reduction in the dividend income the Company receives from its investment holdings. Many of the companies held within the investment portfolio have reduced or even cancelled the dividends they pay to their shareholders. While we have seen some rebound in dividend receipts during the first half of this year, our total dividend income remains subdued. Notwithstanding the reduced dividend distributions from some of our portfolio companies, we remain confident of the continuation of our dividend policy of paying an annual dividend equivalent to six per cent of the Company's NAV at the end of the preceding year. To fund its dividends the Company can use a combination of current year profits and the Distributable Reserve. As at 30 June 2021 the Company had a Distributable Reserve of £335.8 million. -------------- for the record I own the above.

ctrader3: Growth vs. Value Stock Performance and Inflation Stocks are often broken down into subcategories of value and growth. Value stocks have strong current cash flows that will slow over time, while growth stocks have little or no cash flow today but are expected to gradually increase over time. Therefore, when valuing stocks using the discounted cash flow method, in times of rising interest rates, growth stocks are negatively impacted far more than value stocks. Since interest rates are usually increased to combat high inflation, the corollary is that in times of high inflation, growth stocks will be more negatively impacted. This suggests a positive correlation between inflation and the return on value stocks and a negative one for growth stocks. Interestingly, the rate of change in inflation does not impact the returns of value versus growth stocks as much as the absolute level. The thought is that investors may overshoot their future growth expectations and upwardly misprice growth stocks. In other words, investors fail to recognize when growth stocks become value stocks, and the downward impact on growth stocks is harsh. Income-Generating Stocks and Inflation When inflation increases, purchasing power declines, and each dollar can buy fewer goods and services. For investors interested in income-generating stocks, or stocks that pay dividends, the impact of high inflation makes these stocks less attractive than during low inflation, since dividends tend to not keep up with inflation levels. In addition to lowering purchasing power, the taxation on dividends causes a double-negative effect. Despite not keeping up with inflation and taxation levels, dividend-yielding stocks do provide a partial hedge against inflation. Similar to the way interest rates impact the price of bonds—when rates rise, bond prices fall—dividend-paying stocks are affected by inflation: When inflation is on the upswing, income stock prices generally decline. So owning dividend-paying stocks in times of increasing inflation usually means the stock prices will decrease. But investors looking to take positions in dividend-yielding stocks are allowed to buy them cheap when inflation is rising, providing attractive entry points. The Bottom Line Investors try to anticipate the factors that impact portfolio performance and make decisions based on their expectations. Inflation is one of those factors that affect a portfolio. In theory, stocks should provide some hedge against inflation, because a company's revenues and profits should grow at the same rate as inflation, after a period of adjustment. However, inflation's varying impact on stocks confuses the decision to trade positions already held or to take new positions. In the U.S. market, the historical proof is noisy, but it does show a correlation to high inflation and lower returns for the overall market in most periods. When stocks are divided into growth and value categories, the evidence is clearer that value stocks perform better in high inflation periods, and growth stocks perform better during low inflation. One way investors can predict expected inflation is to analyze the commodity markets, although the tendency is to think that if commodity prices are rising, stocks should rise since companies “produce”; commodities. However, high commodity prices often squeeze profits, which in turn reduces stock returns. Therefore, following the commodity market may provide insight into future inflation rates. Investopedia

ctrader3: Ediston Property Investment Company plc Announcement of Interim Dividend and 25% increase in Dividend from May 2021 Declaration of Interim Dividend The Company declares its interim dividend (property income distribution) payment in respect of the period from 1 to 31 March 2021 of 0.3333 pence per share. This monthly dividend of 0.3333 pence per share equates to an annualised dividend level of 4.00 pence per share and is unchanged from the previous dividend declared on 4 March. At the date of this announcement, rent collection is in line with previous forecasts. If the tenants who pay their rent monthly continue to do so, it is projected that the Company will collect 94% of the rent due for the first quarter of 2021. On this basis, the current dividend level would be 126% covered by rent collected (less expenses) for quarter one. Dividend rate increase of 25% from May 2021 The Company will increase its dividend by 25%, to 5.00 pence per share annualised, from 4.00 pence annualised. The first payment at the increased rate will be made in May 2021, for the month of April. The Board believes that the new dividend level will be well-covered and sustainable, based on net income projections, subject to there being no dramatic deterioration in the trading conditions, as was the case a year ago. The 25% dividend increase takes into account the improving outlook for income and rent collection and is not to the detriment of the Company's current projected investment and asset management activities. Should the improving outlook continue, there could be further dividend progression in due course. The projected annualised yield based on the closing share price of 69.20 pence as at 7 April 2021 would be 7.2%. The Company will publish its 31 March 2021 net asset value later this month and will provide a full trading update at that time. End

ctrader3: Income remains in sharp focus As noted, the year saw a large number of dividend cuts in the market and this has inevitably impacted earnings per share which are down more than a third to 18.5p. The board recognises the importance of a growing dividend to shareholders. We can see a path to a covered dividend in the medium term. Absent any significant further deterioration in the outlook for income, the board plans to continue with its progressive dividend policy, and is willing to consider utilising reserves, built up over many years, to cover any shortfall from earnings. We propose a final quarterly dividend for shareholder approval of 6.8p which means for 2020 an increased full-year dividend of 27.2p. This includes a contribution from reserves of 9.9p, leaving 18.3p in reserves at the year end. Whilst this dividend represents a nominal increase of 0.4% over the 2019 dividend of 27.1p, close to but not in excess of the 2020 rate of inflation, we have now grown the dividend for 39 consecutive years at an annualised growth rate of just under 7%, well above the rate of inflation over that period which stands at 3.4% annually as measured by the Consumer Prices Index (CPI). The ability to accumulate revenue reserves for use in just such a 'rainy day' remains one of the key features of an investment trust and one that the board is happy to consider using prudently on behalf of shareholders. We are very pleased therefore to, once again, retain our AIC Dividend Hero status. 2021 has seen us continue to provide one of the highest yields in our peer group as part of an attractive total return for investors. We remain as focused on dividends as you are.
