Only a modest proportion of my savings are in SEE. It's the time value of money thing. Maybe that's what a lot of investors think and one day there will be a stampede for shares. I will probably be too late when it happens!
It's a June 2019 article but seems he means business. As an insider he may well have a much better idea of where the dead wood is hiding. Given Aviva's past it's likely duplication of effort is still a problem.
Double thanks for your input BBD. I took my profits at 1477 as they confirmed my earlier doubts about the de-merger. At least in the shorter term. I may get back in later but I do think the Pru has some work to do and maybe the price needs to be still lower.
I would say that I have faith in AV. in the medium to long term. The stocks I am interested in did include the PRU until I bought some but also GSK which has been soaring out of my reach recently. A couple of AIM prospects are also doing too well for my immediate investment.
HSBA is lowish but I am concerned they will stay that way in the short/medium term. The dividend is attractive. I am kind of regretting buying POLR - are they suffering from Woodford flu? Maybe they will get over it, I can't see why not.
