Bought some more this morning, 6% fully covered, with a 34 year history of dividend growth and outperforming the index, what's not to like? Best regards SBP

this share will prove to be a good recovery play with a dividend to savour while you wait, majority of holdings are in sound companys which should recover in time

Morning All Just joined your merry band with a maiden(unless my memory is at fault!) purchase here at a smidgeon under £4. Hoping it will be a solid, decent yielding middle term holding that requires little, or no, attention. Also that 6p divi next Thursday(XD) is pretty much in the bag too at this level. Fingers crossed and good fortune to holders.

"the share price will largely follow the general trend" Curiously 4 months ago FTSE up 17%, MRCH up 26%; 21 months ago FTSE up 14%, MRCH up 26%. Furthermore, the FTSE is more heavily committed to the weak commodities/mining sector suggesting that MRCH might have been expected to outperform the general market. Hence MRCH in headlong decline!

The share price has declined steadily for the past 4 months, as per the market. Not headlong and not for 21 months. The dividends have been supported from reserves, but only modestly. The return is good but the share price will largely follow the general trend. You pays your money ...

My guess is that the quarterly dividend will be maintained at 6p but for the fourth year of five will require a top up from retained profit reserve.

the portfolio breakdown shows 3% in basic materials and 13% in oil and gas. most money is in financials and safer havens such as utilities. they have a good website with plenty of information. They have a history of recruiting some very clever fund managers so I expect them to be right on top of the current fluctuations.

To what extent are they dependent on the commodity sector though? If dividends get cut across the board then they will have a hard time maintaining an increase.

The dividend has never gone down in around 20 years (or more?) and is currently around 5.8%. I think these are a buy. SBP

Well the share price has been in headlong decline for 21 months with no reason to suppose that is about to change. The divi was partly paid from reserves for 2012 and 2014 and divis from some shareholdings are under pressure in the current year. Contrary opinions welcome!

Looks like sub 350p will be the buying/adding time. The reserves will be needed to pay part of the divi. this year!

That was a nice top-up opportunity yesterday. Maybe more to come in Sep/Oct?

Thanks, speedsgh, only just seen the link. Goes some way to explaining the under-performance of the fund over the last 9-12 months, and highlights why we've seen a decent recovery recently. That said I'm a little disappointed we've lagged the FTSE generally, whose constituents have also had to cope with the OP fall and strong US dollar.
