Dividends will only be paid if your name is still on the register at the specified 'Record Date'. As a guide you can check going back to when dividends were paid a number of years ago to see when the record date was.
Could someone kindly give me a steer....... I have brought and sold many times. Hopefully there will be a dividend announced at the end of the month. If this is the case am I correct in thinking as long as I hold the share when the dividend is announced and the sell the day after I will be paid this or do you have to hold the share for a certain period after the dividend has been announced ? Cheers Sam
Job done! I'd rather be in than out with this stock right now. Assuming Greece and the ECB (pretend) that a compromise has been agreed tomorrow and Ukraine doesn't implode during the ceasefire - this stock is going to have a heady few days between now and a week on Friday. I'm going for a rise from its current 75p up to 79p. I think the big rise will be after the GE now (IF and only IF Millipede is wiped out). MS doing a good job limiting exposure to the market every day and PPI definitely tailing off. AHO's bonus will be a flash in the pan. Grumpy employees unfortunately have to grin and bear the fact that the company is not necessarily one of the best to work for now that their pensions have been slashed; but hey - for once I'm glad to be the other side of the (capitalist) fence as a shareholder. In a benign world this stock would easily see off £1+ by year end, but as usual too many global imbalances will jeopardise the final figure. Be in it to win it and any people sitting on the fence this weekend - buy as much stock as you can afford on Monday OR ELSE! GLA.
What a useless share this has been for last year, anyhow this finally looks like its going to make a move in the right direction. (UP & away) Now that most of the other ftse 100 shares are nearly at top of their ranges, the likes of LLOY will stop the whole ftse collapsing.
Whether we like it or not Bonus culture is part and parcel of modern corporate world.Whether the Tories or Labour form the next Government the top people will continue to be paid large bonuses in millions. AHO is but one of many many high fliers who will continue to receive bonuses in millions. Did I hear somewhere that the HMG said they will not interfere in these matters. If the quantum of the bonus was agreed in the job contract who can blame AHO for taking it as agreed? He will probably be offered a bigger bonus in the next job wherever it may be. It is not AHO but the bonus culture of the corporate world that needs to change. It would be wrong to muddle politics with problems in the corporate culture. I suspect that the bonus mind set originates from the Business schools and not from the House of commons or the schools that teach politics. Probably our good politicians should lecture the AHOs of tomorrow at these Business schools.Will these school allow them? News papers and media have a role in keeping us informed but what will it achieve? As far as share holders are concerned their voice will be heard but not necessarily acted upon if there is no money left to pay dividend.Sad but true. Best to stay cautiously optimistic. GLA
RUTH SUNDERLAND: Toxic timing makes £7m bonus for Horta-Osorio politically tricky
The bank is expected to make more than £2billion in profit for the full year and the share price has increased over the three years by nearly 200 per cent. That makes Lloyds the second best performing bank in the world.
