RE: Dividend.
Today 18:34
Fair point re: the dividend not being supportable long term, at those levels, but that also assumes the share price remaining at this level, should it rise back to say the 400 mark, then that dividend is considerably less assuming it maintains, which it has in the past, albeit increasing, but only by a tiny amount

What i find more relevant, and i am seeing this more and more, is the price fluctuations following the ex-dividend date, for example take this hypothetical.....

For this example, your share sees a small but noticeable rise into the ex-divi date, with the share price increasing, come the ex-divi date, you become eligible for, lets say a 6% dividend, your all smiles, as you know that money is effectively secured in your account come the payment date, and your investment has made you some money....... until that is.....

on the ex-divi date, you look at your share, and, as expected the price has dropped, because it's gone ex-divi, and usually (not always) you see roughly the dividend percentage in the fall, hopefully a little less..... however, and i'm seeing this more and more lately, the fall is way way over the dividend value, so take your hypothetical example above, you gained 6% divi, but, the share falls say 11% through the ex-divi date, so you could have sold your shares the day before the ex date, and bought exactly the same number back a day later, and pocketed the difference, effectively giving you a payment (think of it as an immediate dividend!) to the tune of more like 10%

makes you wonder sometimes why we bother sticking around for the dividends doesn't it?

I have seen this not only here at times, but also LGEN and NAHL to name but 2 others

RE: amazon

I agree Aby. Maybe, just maybe they are having a look at current pricing to put a bid in.

I accept there will be some obstacles, but none that Amazon shouldn't be able to over come and sell as better for the consumer, using their technologies too.

strap in for wednesday
Today 15:26
The old saying the mng trading is for joes and the closing trading is for pros.

If thats the case then Wednesday results could be a good one as clearly the joes listened to the telegraph and sent shares at early doors down to 223 today and still got confused by this gbp350m profit no to the gbp500/530m one. They are different nos. the gbp500/530 is before transformation costs and gbp350m is actual profit after.

Rmg just have to deliver has expected and these shares will do very well indeed. Especially when you start at a share price of 2.33 and if dividend held and profits as expected, a lot of income funds will pile into the juicy 10.3 per cent p.a yield.

Last 36 hours of super cheap rmg shares. come and get them while you can.

Similar pattern to recent days, will be interesting to see if we have a bit of a rally into close. No doubt any increase in shorts today likely to be reported Wed/Thursday PM.

Dividend.
Today 14:55
Obviously we will all be happy if the dividend is maintained...well, up to August at least. But is it sustainable? Probably not. And that is money (if the dividend is cut later on in the year) that might be better spent elsewhere: transformation costs for instance.

RE: Heading south and fast...

The thing that is most strangest about current movements is the drop into final year results - we've not had that for the previous three quarters... shorters must be getting desperate to drive this lower because Rico is much more likely than not going to maintain the dividend.

Falkland - yes, its heading down fast - it was £2.34 in March and its £2.31 just now... that's a drop of 1.2% in two months or 0.6% per month... definitions must be different.

There is no security risk involved...they are built like nuclear bunkers. Also, this is not a first: Amazon have been using this system for several years; Royal Mail, as is the norm these days, unfortunately, is playing "catch-up" here. But good on you, Rico Back -- another positive move forward!!

Just had a coffee with an ex colleague who just left the business a few weeks ago (VR) This is someone who was at board level within a Royal Mail function and I value his opinion. His view was that Rico is taking decisive action and that many changes are well underway. He is hopeful that an element of the executive bonus may still be paid suggesting some of the gateway targets have been met potentially including profitability and quality of service. This is not a given and his opinion only.

Overall his view re the share price was surprise as he wasn't aware of any unreported or major fundamental changes positive or negative since last reports. I mentioned some of the press reports and he laughed as he said it is a very tight operation now and no rumours or facts about performance were being bandied about internally.

Like the rest of us its a case of wait and see what Wednesday brings. Please note this is a reflection of a discussion of opinion and not intended in anyway as advice to buy/sell/hold.

Actually that article contains many inaccuracies

Parcelforce post restante services have always been available

these are not the first

Any Crown post office would take in poste restante items

Even Parcelforce depot park royal were rumoured so the manageress claimed

but this was later denied.

Royal Mail has announced plans for the UK's first-ever parcel postboxes.

The company said 1,400 of the new postboxes would be installed across the country in more than 30 locations over a six-month period, starting in August.

Locations will include Aberdeen, Birmingham, Cardiff and Leeds.

Customers will be able to post parcels in the same way that they currently post a letter, provided that postage has been pre-paid using Royal Mail's own online labelling service.

Existing letter postboxes were introduced in the 1850s and Royal Mail said the new move represented the first major change in the system since then.

"The launch of parcel postboxes is also one of the biggest innovations in parcels since the launch of Parcel Post in 1883," it added.

Climate change: How green is your parcel?
Royal Mail 'sorry' for raising stamp price above cap
Letter boxes: The red heart of the British streetscape

The rollout follows a successful trial of the idea last year.

Royal Mail will be converting existing meter boxes, which it said had a larger aperture and a secure design.

Mark Street, head of campaigns at Royal Mail, said: "We hope that the wider roll-out gives added flexibility to online sellers who might be running a business in their spare time and not keeping regular office hours."

People will also be able to return parcels using the system, as long as they have a Royal Mail barcode attached.

The full list of locations is:

Leeds
Newcastle & Tyneside
Sheffield
Warrington
Swindon
Nottingham
Romford
Manchester
Preston
London Central
Birmingham
Chelmsford
Chester
Greenford
Glasgow
Edinburgh

George - the market is bonkers in the extreme... but the potential to get these near £2.20 has me licking my lips.... knowing that on the laws of economics, this company is undervalued by more than its market capitalisation.

The shorters drove it down by 16 pence to its lowest point in a desperate bid to shake the tree... and it bounced back with minutes to the last closing price.... 16 pence sounds lijke the potential dividend that RMG might announce come Wednesday... who knows.
