belgrano, we used to say that at my company too. I used to produce the evidence for my end of year appraisal. Got binned despite having saved over double my salary. That was the day I left corporate for ever!
Prop, the key RNS was 21/11. The split was stated as follows: It follows that the cost of a shareholder's investment in Keras should be divided for UK Capital Gains Tax purposes as being 52.763% in respect of the Calidus Shares received under the Demerger and 47.237% in respect of the residual holding of Keras Shares.
findahappy place, I think you are looking for BIG winners, you have to expect to lose one or two along the way. I have a few in my speculative pot, and have had a few good results but not yet a real big multi-bagger. I've averaged MOS down to under 2p but that is miles away at the moment. It looked dead and buried until recently so still hope. GL and great weekend.
I sadly have always sold Fevertree too early. Have always made a decent profit but it has always gone higher after I sell. Sold this morning but still holding a bigger lump than I would like in derivatives at a small loss. Regarding holding long-term versus taking profit, my take is that I try to set a target SP at point of purchase. I tend to wobble a bit and take profit too early (as per Buffett's quote). A profit is a profit though.... GLA
TLW, and so another spurious blaming of the global crash on Blair / Brown. This old chestnut gets peddled so often. Anyone with any knowledge knows the origins of the crash (sub prime etc.) but it should not be blamed on New labour. Their management of it can certainly be criticised but if blams is to be dished out, previous administrations deregulation of banks is a more fitting target. Those will longer memories will remember the tory years of boom and bust. labour will not win of course. The gutter press are taking care of that but I for one would personally take a financial hit to if it meant no majority for Johnston and his evil bunch of toerags.
Dibeg, with no dividend, the only way to make money has been to trade IQE. Not necessarily short-term day trading but taking profits at the right level and buying back in on the drops. Still think we'll see good times again. Just a question of when .... GLA
.... needed for this one. IQE is one of the few stocks I have ALWAYS made good profit on. Has sometimes been a tough and bumpy ride (I was a HUGE amount down when it was 13 or 14p in 2014). Turnaround this time may also take time so this may not be those willing to hold on. I'm tucking this way and will add further if it goes much lower. GLA
