hi Gerry, all good points , but everyone buys shares to make money, end off. again we can only judge whats what up to today. but next month if there is a divi cut, share will go down a lot. like Sainsbury. vod s p really making hard work of getting to £ 2 20 , so if results not great going forward, then divi cut will come. I would be happy to hold vod if all was equal for next five years. but if divi is reduced, then best to cut losses, like I did with Tesco + sainsburys. I have vod shares… Read More
Dan, I would be both. Glad my holdings were doing well but sad that they were too expensive to buy more. Of course earnings and the divi could follow so as not to make it too expensive and then that would be ok.
We all buy for different reasons, in my case for income and hopefully I can time any reinvestment when the SP is low and this get a bigger yield. Compounding a flat but 7 percent yielder suits me fine and then I get effective growth and growing income.
Hi vod gang my take is this. The telecoms sector is changing rapidly , as is the media sector. So tie up or merger of some kind is highly likely, as seen with shy + fox, but that don't mean 2 & 2 = 4. It was at & t before then China gov, now liberty. Qaurtaries offered £6 a share for sainsburys about 8 years ago, now sainsburys s p historically low, they are no where to be seen , but have lowered their holding. Liberty rumours always surface every few months or so. A few years… Read More
Gerry, My burning question to you is, If the rumour does comes true & the sp shoots up, are you sad or glad. I get your point that if sp falls, divi yeald rises, but do you really want the sp to fall?? If I were an expert on vod, I would love it if the sp fell for no reason, so I could buy more on the the cheap, but I'm not, are you ???? I know you may talk about income, but I can tell you about investments that will give you 10% per year, but thats no good if your capital shrinks.
Hi anok , with reference to liberty rumours fact or fiction. Well the Answer is this. Remember when your mom told you there was a father Christmas. Sorry if that shatters the illusion. G l a & a t b. Fellow vodders. Made a very small profit last week, then got back in. 7 weeks to results + Divi revealed.
