bouleversee - your grandchildren should be happy. I wish I had ancestors who did more than hang onto their Halifax and Alliance & Leicester freebies!

Bluebelle - Yes, let's. And I should own up to having recently given most of mine to my grandchildren as I am more concerned with income at age 76 and don't particularly want to increase my IHT position and also wanted to use my cgt allowancefor last year. They don't need income so for their sakes I hope the growth continues though according to Sod's Law the price has dropped from the then m.v. of l633 so I haven't achieved much! At least there were no costs or stamp duty to pay.

bouleversee Let's just agree to differ : don't get me wrong : I wouldn't say 'No' to an increased dividend !

Bluebelle: Since it stayed at 8.4 for many years, I am more concerned with its rise since the 7.5p in 1997. I make it less than 46% over l6 years, without any allowance for compounding or inflation. I don't think that is very marvellous for a company which is supposed to be doing so well. Jam tomorrow is all very well but it would be nice to at least have a bit of butter on my bread today. It would be interesting to see how payments to shareholders compare with those to management (including incentive bonuses, free shares etc.) over the same period. I seem to recall there were some pretty hefty increases last year.

b You'll be getting, assuming forecasts are correct, 30% more cash per share this year than when the dividend was last at 8.40. That's not bad. All that's happened is that, because the price has risen, the yield has fallen from over 7% to under 1. Money hasn't exactly been frittered away : R&D per share is up by around 80% : that's where future dividends will come from.

I think they'd do themselves (not to mention their shareholders) a favour if they increased the dividend to a realistic level. It was 7.5p in 1997 and stayed at 8.40p for many years. They don't hesitate to up their own earnings significantly. We could all get rich if we didn't pay our dues. How do they think we pay our own bills? One can't spend eps and it's not economical to sell a handful of shares to pay the electricity bill. A high share price can disappear overnight; one needs something rather more tangible if one is a long term investor. I'm not suggesting they distribute all their profits but they do seem extraordinarly stingy to their shareholders whilst being rather generous to themselves and a somewhat better balance between growth and income would seem appropriate, especially in the present climate.

Over reaction to sector sentiment. This is always vulnerable because the price performance means that the dividend is very low on a % basis (although it's increased by around 30% in 5 years on a cash basis) so you're buying future prospects. This company has as deep a moat as any and excellent short, medium and long term prospects. The main danger IMHO is the eventual management succession. The current Chairman & CEO have done a fantastic job both individually and collectively and will, when the time comes, be hard acts to follow.

Does anyone have any idea why we have dropped around 20% from our year high? Any research?

Emailed the company about the IMS and this is the response. So 13th Feb is a reasonable bet now! "As you may be aware, we are required to put out an IMS not later than 6 weeks prior to our year end, the 31st March ... this time limit expires at the weekend. We will therefore be releasing our IMS before the weekend." Kind regards. Susan Johnson-Brett Company Secretary Oxford Instruments plc Tubney Woods, Abingdon, Oxon OX13 5QX, UK

bouleversee 1 Feb'13 - 16:54 - 378 of 382 0 0 And frequently does! A3477681 -Did you buy back at higher price than you sold? answer: YES! I sold 300 @ 1640 and bought back in @ 1660 so lost 60 + dealing + stamp £32 so say £100 and was very lucky with a small drop to my LSE order price. It was a bad experiment on this occasion but also increased holding by another 300.
