Disagree about never investing with borrowed money. My average price of Barclays was over £2 but as the covit crisis began to emerge I smelt opportunity, raised £5k on a credit card and subsequently bought barc at 87p It could have all gone wrong, it was a gamble, but thats the same for all shares?
They do have a plan that more or less offers what you need it made up of 3 elements Bt Halo 3+ which is broadband and landline with a guaranteed connection in every room and a 4g router that switches on automatically if the internet goes down family sim with 200gb which is effectively unlimited br sport tv package
Its valuation is way too low- the company that effectively runs the UKS Bband infrastructure for £10billion is a joke, especially given the "value" of the likes of twitter, facebook I know a few people who work for BT and they are grumbling as BT are busy slashing costs, with bonuses falling by over 50% and new grading structures meaning as staff leave new staff are employed on a lower grade and rate and we are not talking a few pounds The slashing of the dividend and costs savings should help them build up a great deal of cash unless the pigs at the top of the trough gobble it all up to reward themselves
I personally am happy at their decision. Paying dividends reduces the value of the company by what they pay out. If one needs income then selling some shares is an option which dilutes your holding by the same ammount the dividend would reduce the value of your shares- thats as far as I can see anyway

I should have said that I was referring to over the past couple of months. I have bought in the expectation that when recent issues across the world stabilise it will be bouncing back. No one knows for sure, but if the talk of playing football behind closed doors becomes reality they may get a lot more sports subscribers
No airlines are giving out money for expences, indeed why should they? They are effected as much, if not more than the customers. I wish people would take some responsinility for their own actions. Whenever I go away I always ensure I am prepeared for most eventualities. While I admit the volcanic ash issue is something I never have imagined, I suspect BA and other airlines never considered it a posibility either. They are losing money from this also.
twice as many shares bought then sold. Nearly 3 times the average volume traded yesterday. Is there something happening here? or is the increased trading linked to the Unilever results? Any thoughts appreciated
