The thing I like about GSK shares , (apart from the fact that I work for them and get free ones every month for the last 28 years) and the dividend, is that they are so reliable ( boring?) And predictable . They always seem to stagger slowly up to around 1650 to 1700 throughout the year. Then immediately plummet down to around 1400 ish, maybe less, around Oct / Jan . Then the process starts again.
