Half year results only a week away now on the 9th November.

Any advance on an interim divi of 18.48p (Uty's guesstimate)?

Spot on again Uty.

Look at the chart at 13:30 UK time when the US opened.

There are three weeks in a year when there is only 4 hours difference between UK and US eastern time. One week in Autumn and two in Spring. This week is the week where the US markets will open up one hour early, effectively, due to the UK clock change.

There is usually some erratic volatility during these weeks as the US Shyster Hedge Funds have an hour longer to play mischief

MNG also looks interesting, only 5 years of dividend history but increased every year even during the pandemic, and currently with a yield of 10.6%. The danger of course is that such a high yield could be a red flag.

PG looks good for consistent long term capital and dividend growth, I have not found any shares on the UK market that match up with this one..

Divis..

I agree Uty. The market has already given Liz Truss's policies a huge thumbs down so she should stop banging on about them as she can never prove the market wrong.
Imho the Tories' only chance of winning the next election is to have another leadership election to democratically elect another leader but I can't see Sunak relinquishing power in which case a Labour victory seems pretty much a done deal. At least it would be Starmer rather than Corbyn.

Bounty,

Re: post 8617

You are absolutely spot on with your take. I read yesterday in the papers that people like Liz Truss are not helping either. Whether you agree with her politics or not, I think she ought to be a bit more savvy. Liz has set up this ‘Growth Commission’ which is out to identify the heavy taxes we all are subjected to, present and future, under Rishi’s stewardship.

IMO, Liz feels comfortable in making the Conservative Party ‘self destruct’. Because she will never otherwise get the chance of becoming the Leader of the party again, she wants Rishi to lose the election ( the natural opportunity to have a Leadership election).

Liz is sacrificing a Conservative Gov to try and become another Maggie……

Power crazy????

For really impressive long term dividend growth look to the S&P 500 'Dividend Aristocrats'..

This one looks good for long term dividend growth and has a yield of 3.7%


(switch to "Annual Dividends" at the top)

Maybe a little overpriced following it's recent strong run. Any comments?

anhar - agreed, but miners and builders alike have all taken a hit with dividends (and share prices) and the timing of recovery is unclear so as I'm looking for consistently growing dividends I'm leaving RIO and PSN out, although they would probably have been included a year ago.

Uty - agreed and I don't know what the answer is except to seek out potentially resilient shares which is not easy, especially in the UK market.
Re Labour if they win and further damage to the UK markets ensues then a lot of people's pension funds are going to get hit hard, not that they haven't been hit already. The so called gold plated final salary pension schemes are rapidly becoming a thing of the past and even they invest in the markets to meet their payment committments. Most voters seem to be oblivious of this but then the Tories have dug themselves into a hole with little time left or willingness to make the necessary changes to get themselves out, imho of course!

Sorry posting a bit difficult as travelling abroad.

When gbh2 says pricing in a Labour win….. then yes, but what options do we have as an alternative to stock? If you convert into cash ask yourself why the Gov are badgering the Banks to offer higher interest rates to savers. Notice also why the highest rates offered are outside ISA’s.

Chancellor wants 40% ( if you are a 40% tax payer) on any income from interest earned that is any more than a paltry £500 / year.

You cannot really put earned wealth into property without being stung for either CGT. Income from renting will be heavily regulated and not as lucrative as it has been.

There is no real incentive to build wealth and very little reward for being ambitious

...RIO looks like a good recovery play and has a strong dividend growth history ...until this year ...when it has been cut as well as no special of course so doesn't quite fit the bill...

I've held big miners RIO and BHP in my income port for many years. Spectacular long term divi returns on average, including two valueable demergers from BHP, but as you suggest they are not progressive divi payers. Instead, their divis are a function of profits and the latter are highly variable due to fluctuating commodity prices. So not for those seeking steady payout rises year on year.

Despite that, I am though happy to hold forever and regard this sector as core in my port. I can live with the divi flucs because my belief is that the long term average payouts wil continue to be good. No guarantees of course.

Fwiw Sunak can't win imho. For the Tories to stand any chance they need yet another leadership election to democratically elect a new leader but I guess that won't happen?!

Yes I agree. That needs to be taken into account. ...but what does that leave, savings certificates?

What shares should do well under labour if any, anyone?

Presumably those with significant foreign earnings like NG.?!

Hi Uty

Just checked AV. and while I agree with you re the takeover potential looking on div max the 16 yr div growth is wobbly and long term capital growth poor so I will start a second list for potential takeover targets. Adm is a similar share imho.

BAE looks very good for consistent dividend growth, although already the price has doubled over the last 2 years, have added that one.
PSN has an inconsistent long term dividend record but I agree it has good recovery potential and I already hold a few.
RIO looks like a good recovery play and has a strong dividend growth history ...until this year ...when it has been cut as well as no special of course so doesn't quite fit the bill. Maybe I need a 3rd list for recovery plays!

The reason why I am looking at this is that I'm fed up with seeing more risky shares especially AIM shares being decimated by the UK market and am looking to consolidate into safer dividend payers of which I already hold a number, but intend to increase.

Bounty,

On your lust along with LGen should be IMO Av (Aviva). Last week it was mentioned that they could be a take over target. That’s why it jumped 20p but since then the noise has quietened down due to no news / other news. That aside if the rumoured take over does take hold they are saying the share price could be £6.

Other good dividend stocks to consider IMO ( and please … it isn't a recommendation, so DYOR), are BAE, PSN ( buy low, good divi), RIO.
