That regulation I mentioned a little while back . The intelligent scoffed at :-) Dividend Tax.. well well. Investors. Key month coming up, October Will we see a huge surge in the already enormous death toll ? Past seasons during the pandemic suggest yes . .
How much pension income can you buy with £100,000? The answer may shock you Harvey Jones yesterday Today's low interest and annuity rates have shrunk the amount you can generate from a personal or workplace pension pot. That means people need to save more than ever, just to generate enough money to get by. So how much income will £100,000 give you? There is a simple answer, although you may not like it. If you buy a single life annuity at age 65, each £100,000 in your pension pot will give you a guaranteed annual income of around £4,968 a year, according to the Hargreaves Lansdown online annuity quote tool. That is a "level" income and will not rise in line with price inflation. If you want your annuity income to rise by 3 percent a year, your starting income in the first year will fall to just £3,282. Many will see that as a poor return for a lifetime of saving. Couples who buy a joint life annuity, which pays continues to pay 50 percent income after one partner dies, need a bigger pot. Each £100,000 of retirement savings will buy level joint income of roughly £4,285 a year at age 65, falling to £2,745 if you choose 3 percent inflation proofing. Of course, that inflation-proof income will rise over time, but again, it's a shockingly low starting point. In practice, only a quarter of pensioners buy an annuity these days. Most leave their money invested via drawdown and take money when they need it. So how much will you generate from £100,000 in drawdown? An old financial planning rule of thumb called the "4 percent rule" suggests this is the amount you can safely draw from your pension each year, without the risk of running out of money during your lifetime. This means for each £100,000 in your pension pot, you can only safely draw down £4,000 worth of income a year. This rule applies both to single people and couples. At least with drawdown your pension pot should keep growing in retirement, and you may raise more by dipping into your capital as you get older.
Hope so although I have to say am not particularly convinced by their arguments.They basically seem to be saying it's going up because it's cheap but that's been the case for years now.Problem is as long as Banks, Tobacco and Mining make up a good percentage of the index can't see the outlook improving much but as the dividend outlook seems to be improving I still like it for yields Am less confident of capital growth though.

But to the important point . Is this dividend still uncovered ?
Tim 3 Bought two flats in Harrow . 1995 and 1998 . Anyone buying a house today will make diddly squat over the next 40 years . In fact if you take a look at all the new builds , the taxpayer owns 20 per cent of them .
Bluemango If you have a look . I said I would short it at £5.55 and gave the reason. Never do the obvious :-)
Too true, tim3. On that note, still waiting for my Nasdaq short (hedge) to come good, but today could mark the start ;-)

Ahh but bears are never wrong MD because its always going to happen "tomorrow". Bought my house in 2000 was told I was mad ....

yes, sour grapes after missing out on the mega-rally. Investing in 'troubled times' often generates the best returns - he can wait until everything looks rosy again and then question why shareprices start to retreat ? Like the people who say houseprices are too high and wait, and then a couple of years later are completely priced out of the market No one can predict exactly where the MRCH shareprice will go - could stay flattish from here for a while with 5% annual payout intact - fine by me ...

From the chart, it doesn't look as if Superiorshares' MRCH short is doing particularly well. Of all the candidates out there to short, this really isn't amongst the most obvious ones to choose.
Gateside Yes just read it . Talks about a recent reduction in infection rates (it's August ! ). Talks about trading in and out of shares. Does mention a slowdown in volatility ( beware of that ) Does not mention if it's dividend is covered or not ? I don't think it is , is it ?

You're exactly right. Empirical evidence gives a very different story from the media narrative. Dark, and largely unprecedented times ahead.
