I'm a little late with this but it refers to the six months to the end of June. Gordon Marr, Group Chief Executive Officer, commented: "The fundamentals in our core markets are encouraging and this has translated into an increase in demand for our products. We have continued to grow regular premium new business in FY 2013 and achieved a record level of £136.1m PVNBP. This is testament to the success of our strategy of focusing on regular premium business in growth markets. We believe that Hansard's prospects remain strong and that our continuing investment in distribution infrastructure and Hansard OnLine will position us for future growth. We look forward to refreshing the Group's new business strategies with our new Chief Distribution Officer, Graham Morrall." I am gradually buying into Hansard who pay a very good dividend of about 7%.

Dividend about 7%
The yield of 11% shown on this site was true for 2012 but not for 2013 or 2014. It is now just under 7%, still very good of course and the 11% was almost certainly unsustainable. I am gradually increasing my holding again.

June is another month
After the hoped for rise at the end of May the share price has gradually dropped in June. I am hoping it is the general market weakness this month. I am gradually rebuilding my holding as opportunities arise.

Black ink at last
I have held Hansard for three years but gave up on them as they never fulfilled the promises of the analysts. Although I made a heavy loss on the sale this was covered by the dividends I had banked. Re-invested again in early May on hearing of very good figures in their latest report. I am now in the black and still looking forward to receiving excellent dividends. Not a traders' share but a good one to tuck away for income. I wish I had bought more in May.

Talking to a friend of mine who works in the finance sector who said Hansard results are good, and looking at the buys to sells ratio I would think he's right! And the scrip div is due at the start of March. Check out Hansard plc website for stats etc... GL
