RE: Healthcare sector
Today 13:01
"Today, Jefferies Financial Group reiterated its Buy rating on GlaxoSmithKline plc (lon:GSK) with a price target of GBX 1,750." 23 April.

Brokers have their own agenda IMO and GSK doesn't exactly float their boat right now. I do believe there are profits to be had from this stock with careful timing. Defy the brokers!

Healthcare sector
Today 11:30
This is the worst sector to date over 10yrs, stocks undervalued, and so I believe.

Until the elections we will be going through tricky times, health care bill to boot too.

This sector is discounted at least 15%, so we could finally see 1750 if things go our way 1-2yrs time,

I do love though how I proved my broker wrong on advice on buying JNJ away back in 2010!

Gsk malaria vaccine.
Wed 12:15
Malawi begins historic rollout of gsk,s malaria drug. Plus other African countries to follow with help from WHO, World health organisation. This will be brilliant for the millions of people who contract malaria. And massive for GSK . It’s good to see that they are donating 1million vaccines free.

Smart move
Tue 15:27
GlaxoSmithKline has offloaded the global rights to failed cardiovascular disease drug losmapimod to Fulcrum Therapeutics, who plan to reposition the p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase inhibitor as a treatment for a muscle wasting disease (FSHD). GSK given high equity stake in Fulcrum plus royalties. Sounds good.

You could be right but I like to take profits now and then. Just so's they are in the account and not imaginary!

And this stock does strange things itself.

Nearly time to do the splits
5 Apr '19
Interesting times ahead … From Reuters :

Brian McNamara, CEO of GSK Consumer Healthcare, told Reuters that the UK drugmaker and US peer Pfizer were on track to create the world’s biggest consumer health business by the second half of the year. The venture, which will be majority-owned by the FTSE 100 group, will become a stand-alone company within three years of closing the deal, and will be led by McNamara.

He further told Reuters that the US and China were “two of the key value drivers of the deal,” with Pfizer having “critical mass and a significant amount of their key brands”.

Yes 1600p reached. Like shooting fish in a barrel but having the added luxury of some medicines if you shoot yourself in the foot.

RE: Dividend reinvestment
1 Apr '19
Halifax Stocks and Shares ISA reinvest the following day after a dividend has been paid at nominal cost and only charge £12.50 per annum irrespective of balance. There is also a cheap dealing day once a month at £3.95 per trade (+SD). I do not think this service can be beaten for either cost or convenience. The biggest delay you can have on a divi reinvestment is Friday to Monday.

The thing I like about GSK shares , (apart from the fact that I work for them and get free ones every month for the last 28 years) and the dividend, is that they are so reliable ( boring?) And predictable . They always seem to stagger slowly up to around 1650 to 1700 throughout the year. Then immediately plummet down to around 1400 ish, maybe less, around Oct / Jan . Then the process starts again.

Good for you. My investment is from my pension, so if I sell, I would have to invest in something else.

I just sold at 1584, I only sold a small number of shares compared with my total holding (sold ~180, still have over 1000).

The money is going to go towards summer holidays and home improvements.

Question is, what would you do with the money? I could sell mine, but GSK is offering me good income and diversification, and some buffering compared to other knee jerk shares. I put quite a high value on mine. next div in little over a month.

RE: Divedend Reinvestment

Hargreaves invest divi money between 11th and 18th of the following month. Therefore if Gsk pay divi on 4th April it will get invested between 11th and 18th.

Sometimes a bit annoying because if the divi is paid on 15th for example HL will wait to following month but you can always turn to cash and do it yourself although charges higher

RE: Divedend Reinvestment

It's when they get around to it ... although it will never be earlier than the payment date. Usually they lump all the reinvestments together and do a bulk purchase in the market as soon as is reasonably possible after the money comes through. The reason behind that is that they are then not liable for making a discretionary decision about timing which might go against you leading to a claim that they acted incorrectly. If you are lucky they then split the costs across everyone and you get an advantage in terms of trading costs. However, the market makers know what is going to happen and could manipulate the price on payment day or stock pile stock ready for it.

Taken this option with GSK via HL.. I still dont understand on which date the shares are purchased. Is it x date, payment date or whenever they get round to it!
