ramellous - yes, mrch has done ok. But no more than that for me. If you'd have bought into here early jan 2020, ie pre-pandemic, you'd be sitting on a 4% total loss to date. Buying into the s&p500 over the same timescale would have delivered a 35% total gain. That's a 39% difference! I fear this is beginning to stagnate and any growth going forward will simply be down to the dividend not a share price increase. I'll continue to hold at present but will monitor performance over the coming 12 months carefully.
I hold both too.In fairness you don't buy these for the excitement!

Well, a 12% total return in the last six months, matching nearly exactly the S&P500 for the same timeframe will do me as an income fund for retirement. Holding a 500 tracker as well though.
So yet again the FTSE underperforms taking this with it. Mind for some years I have classed £5 fair value for these anything above and they start looking pricey and below they start looking attractive. Can not see that changing any time soon.

Was this dividend funded in part , from reserved ?
