Looks like you spend too much time typing and not enough dealing. Share price today on a tumble again. Waiting for sub-680p then back in again. You assume small deals. Not so matey.

Hi All,

Shelling peas may well be relatively easy, and the taste of freshly picked peas is wonderful, but anyone who has ever attempted to grow peas on a small scale in a domestic garden or even an allotment, knows that quite a lot of peas are required for a decent sized portion.

Similarly, for UK investors to cover stamp duty costs and two lots of fees (buying and selling), a considerable number of shares would be required to turn a 15.5p share price gain from 666p into a reasonable return.

Growing peas successfully is all about timing, and although the mangetout/sugar-snap varieties tend to mature more quickly than the others, twenty days is a very short growing season.

Many of us have sometimes started to harvest our crops too early, whereas waiting a few extra days would produce a much better result - similarly, people sell (part of) their holdings only to see the share price rise further the following day!

This week has been quite good for HSBC shares - in fact, the closing price has risen (slightly) each day this week, which has not happened since the week before the annual results were announced.

With the AGM next Friday, and the first quarter update in early May, I am hoping the share price will continue to rise, rather than dip below 670p again!

Assuming the normal 10c per share is declared in early May, then some income will also be received in July, which at current levels (share price and exchange rates), equates to roughly 1% per "quarter", with a larger dividend usually being declared when the annual results are announced.

Due to the adverse weather conditions earlier in the year, our gardening "projects" will be starting much later than usual, but we still hope to grow some tasty produce.

Similarly, for various reasons, HSBC shares have had a poor start this year, but hopefully there is much better to come.

Have a good weekend, and the weather forecast looks quite good for the week ahead.

Regards,

Steve

I assume you will tell us your next buy. I am always interested in new ideas. I hold long term in my ISA account but in my normal account I am ready to deal. Waiting for your next tip, cheers.

You assume that I assume that you only deal HSBC. I didn't assume that at all.

You have made a 1.35% gain in 20 days. That is great but its is certainly not amazing. You have a lot more to do if you are going to make 27% over the year. If you don't make and more in the next 20 days then that gain is over 40 day which would bring your pa down to 13.5%. I have plaenty of HSBC shares and have been in and out since 2012 and I dont't think this is a time to sell. Next Ex-dividend day is 17th May which is only 5 weeks away. I see this share been back over £7 soon. It is not long since it was £7.97. I am waiting for £7.80 before I think about selling any.
