Another increase in quarterly dividend- Half-Yearly Management Report The net asset value total return for the first six months of 2014 was 1.6% and the share price total return was also 1.6%. The total return of the benchmark, the FTSE All-World Index (in sterling terms), was 3.2%. Earnings per share rose to 6.62p from 6.26p in the same period last year, and our expectation is that income for the full year will show growth compared to the 10.21p earned in the year to 31 December 2013. A first interim dividend of 2.60p was paid at the end of June and the second interim dividend of 2.625p is payable at the end of September. The total amount of dividends, 5.225p, is 3.5% higher than the amount paid for the corresponding period in 2013. This rate of increase in the dividend exceeds the current rates of inflation, with RPI and CPI increasing by 2.6% and 1.9% respectively on an annual basis as at the end of June 2014

Just had a cold call from someone asking if i have had a good day, then went on to ask if a had a broker and had i thought about investing on the Frankfurt exchange , then said he could make me a lot of money investing in a Iron ore share , think it might have been in South America. I kept on telling him i had no spare cash to invest, then i asked him what company it was and he said if he told me i would buy i then said again i had no money so he said good night and put the phone down. Frankfurt = Boiler room scam

http://www.moneymarketing.co.uk/1032780.article?cmpid=MME01&cmptype=newsletter&email=true FSA secures first boiler room fraud conviction 14 June 2011 10:16 am | By Sam Macdonald The FSA has secured its first boiler room fraud conviction. David Roger Griffiths Mason has been sentenced to two years in prison and disqualified from being a director for six years after pleading guilty to 13 counts of carrying on a regulated activity without authorisation, thee counts of money laundering and one count of making false or misleading statements, promises or forecasts. Between November 2008 and May 2009 Mason co-ordinated the cold-calling and sale of shares in EduVest Plc. 32 people invested £270,000 believing EduVest would be listing on the PLUS stock exchange in the near future. Victims were cold-called and offered shares in EduVest by unauthorised overseas firms. Mason laundered the proceeds of the boiler room operation, directing some funds to the boiler rooms via accounts in Switzerland and the Seychelles as commission payments with the remainder sent to accounts controlled by Mason. The FSA has also fined David Sinclair of Axion Capital Limited £68,000 after he unwittingly allowed Mason to use a bank account under his control to spread investor money to Mason and other boiler room fraudsters.

That's not a bad idea jabberstocky. If people note dates, times, names, conversation details etc, it would help investors, FSA, police, to build up a picture. I've only had one more call from Blackmore Stanley. He tricked my wife into giving him my mobile number by saying he was a client of mine. He then phoned me but his number was blocked so I didn't answer.

Would be worth setting up a thread to record cold calling incicents and then start to identify the common elements and from whom the lists are purchased.

Looks like the FSA should take a stroll and check out this outfit.
