|Recently bought some of these to add diversification, from my HFEL, AAIF, CTY MRCH & BRCI investment trust. I will be looking to drip feed more over the year as I like the progressive dividend policy. Didn't think it would be up so quickly. Not complaining, but will pause on buying a few more till new tax year.|
|Today, all time high. 60,000 shares bought none sold. good divi.
What could possibly go wrong?|
|All time high and at a small premium.|
|WARNING - Investors please be careful - do not fall prey to Scammers operating online right now to suck you dry of your hard-earned cash. To safeguard yourselves, ensure that any organisations you give money to are a) registered at companies house and b) regulated by FCA. Even with these 2 measures in place it is possible to be scammed. There are 20,000 cases of Online Fraud daily. Online Fraud is rapidly increasing with the advent of faster technology.
As a side-note I was saddened to hear that today, 3 serving poilce officers have been arrested in Surrey Police for a £1,000,000 fraud. Its very worrying when even the Police are corrupt !!|
|Absolutely disgusting ....... don't think you can't be taken in .... they fool even very astute investors ..... apparently 20,000 online scams being done to investors every day ...... govt has only just begun to include them in crime figures (1 year ago) so this gives a truer picture of the amount of crime being committed !!|
|Rebate Option (www.rebateoption.com) recently cold-called me and sold me an account trading binary options .... I'm not sure if they are a scam but they sound strongly like they are ..... in which case I've lost a lot of money .... anyone else dealt with these guys .... the Police have been informed, I just hope they can secure a successful fraud prosecution ..... it makes me really sick to know how they defraud investors ... it can happen to anyone because the script they use sounds absolutely genuine .... one time they rang me and I had the Police secretly listening in, and even the Police weren't sure whether they were a scam or not, they advised me not to part with any more money but try and get more details for a possible prosecution|
|I sold out as well for the same reasons..... also cost of debt seemed high. I reinvested in IUKD, a different animal but a good home for the moment? I will keep an eye on this and expect to come back in on a discount.|
|So which one with yield and discount did you choose, gopher?|
|sold out - the discount has disappeared and performance has remained lucklustre so no loss. Will move on to another IT offering yield and discount|

|This seems to go on every quarter...they pump up stocks at the beginning of a new quarter..suck punters in then short them again...|
|Longs dont like shorters ONLY because they are looking for someone to blame their mistakes on|
|What a load of rubbish that turned out to be re Quindell.
If the short wasnt justified, now that the dust had settled they would have found there real value, which was clearly 5% less than where it was. That said they were lucky. Without the SG offer, they would most likely have gone bust.|
|Beware that people may use your address to make false claims with car insurance companies, this happened to me recently. I had to make a declaration that I was not the person who was making the claim - who is in fact almost certainly fictitious. The fact that I did not have any connection with the car which was being claimed for, meant I was above suspicion.
take care... if you get a claims or new policy documents from a car insurance company that you are not yourselves using, do open it, in the name of someone else you dint' know, do not chuck it in the bin! and take details of the person within, their car details etc, then close it up and seal it " opened in error not at this address , and return to sender. You will almost certainly then get more mail from that Insurance co. return them unopened.
Eventually you may get a visit from a claims " advisor" representing the (real) insurance company.. do talk to him and co-operate and that should be that.
|Picked this up as a dividend payer on a 5% discount when Murray International is on a 10% premium and NAV performance is similar (see Trustnet Global Equity Income). Charges good at 0.45%, I would also point out that top 10 doesn't include tobacco like Murray (and Neil Woodford)
There is some underperformance against benchmark but that may be because its not a pure equity play which I don't have a problem with|
|Yet again another increase in quarterly dividend from last year.

|so who is making the big profit? the oil companies or the retailers? wonder if the supermarkets can answer this?|
|PETROL PRICE SHOULD BE BETWEEN 90P AND 105P|
|IS IT THE OIL COMPANIES OR RETAILERS??? EXPECT MASSIVE FINES AND MOTORISTS REFUNDED.
PRICE OF BARREL OF OIL NOW 30% CHEAPER THAN IN JUNE 2014...|
|I THINK ALL DRIVERS ARE IN THE RIGHT IF THEY JUST PAY £1 A LITRE ..WE ARE BEING RIPPED OFF BY EITHER THE PETROL COMPANIES,THE RETAILERS OR THE TAX MAN..SO DONT PAY MORE THAN A £1 A LITRE|
