Well I've been out the country for a while. Whats happened to Opium ? has he like TESCO gone to Pot ? I have been saying for 7 years now that these shares and the company are going nowhere and still people have blind faith in the poor returns of Tesco
.....and don't forget ticking every possible ' politically correct ' box on every current affairs , news, in house programme etc . Cue.............. black, white, gay, straight, transgender, mixed race, lesbian, fat , thin, short, tall reporter to be included in every show. The bank adverts will be doing it next LOL !
Lloyds is what I call a sleeping share. I've been back in for about 18 months waiting for that upward move, BUT it is totally range bound both on negative and positive news. Just sit back milk the growing steady income and forget about it. Like most sleeping giants ..one day it will wake up and we will all wonder how we missed the boat or did'nt buy more at lower levels
So soon after the Ex div and Divi paid its on the up again. Really think this is a great little company in a niche market. My first ever purchase was at 1.76 . So its one I got right to make up for a few blunders !! LOL
Manipulation !! sorry but how do they manipulate the price ? If someone sells to drive the price lower there is a good chance it will not jump back higher,. and they are losing money on any stock they hold !! Plus the fact .....if you believe its just manipulation why don't you jump in and buy bucket loads of stock because you know the low price is FALSE and you can ride on the coat tails of their so called " manipulation " . Much more likely is that " dealers, big investors in the know " have made good money in the bounce from the depressed 420 levels and know something is round the corner which is NOT dividend re-investment etc which was according to some due to lift the price to 700p tomorrow or Monday ..... GET REAL LOL
Well got really lucky with my timing 1 week ago !! I was looking at medium to long term fundamentals, certainly wasn't expecting a 12 % gain in a week. Is something afoot or just the ' overselling ' being reversed. Do I take a healthy 12% gain on my top up tranche or do I let it ride ? decisions, decisions !!
Sorry ANAPA69 but your last post has forced me to reply ! Quite right Ifonly1 !! If only it was that simple 700p by Fri or Monday .................oh great WE CAN ALL Make 11.55% in 3 or 4 days trading less some paltry charges.
I'm off to the bank for a loan, obviously Retirement looms after the weekend.
Do they have " Hogwash " in your neck of the woods ?
To be fair its a great shout. ALWAYS , ALWAYS " Do your Own research " !! When have you ever seen many posts advising you NOT to buy a share. I was doingthat on the TESCO board for about 5 years and got regularly slaughtered even though the price dropped from around a �5 to �1.60 !! .
PFC could rise it could fall but posters are all entitled to their opinion without suffering childish abuse. Its risen quite alot from the depths of around �4 so it was always going to take a break somewhen, ... Whatever the final outcome !! GLTA
IC's recent article flags up the possibility of companies " running the rule " over ZYT which with its cash pile and ' niche ' market status has always been a possibility. With the drop in share price back to 400p levels the dividend stands at around 5.6% . All in all I think this has been oversold on the recent 1st half profits so I'm sitting tight on my 406p top up and will look for decent rises when the dust has settled .
Hi Ronin, Welcome to ZYT !! I got in a few years ago and have been mainly in this stock ever since. Took some profits when it leapt up and then got back in at lower levels. To be honest its a stock that has never given me too many worries for the reasons I have stated. Sure there will be fluctuations but for an ISA or similar I honestly think its a great holding on a 3 to 5 year view. Modern product , plenty of innovation, sound balance sheet, growing dividend. One to tuck away and let it do what it does best .
A little down but they upped the interim dividend... but not as good as it looks because I think they are trying to balance the dividends to about the same level. Anyway I've decided to double my holding this morning and got 4.06 in an early trade. Still a well run company in a niche market with solid cash backing, good divi, fundamentals and management. Lets see where we go from here ! GLTA
I'm not too worried because I initially got in at under �2.00 a couple of years ago and halved my holding at �5.80 before then getting out and getting back in ......................BUT what is going on, Nothing on the Company website and no info popping out anywhere, very strange. This share also has solid Institutional holders and support, so really intriguing to know whats going on. Time will tell but I think its a well run company with good management, solid niche products and a large relative cash pile might even go for a small ' ballsy ' top up, good luck to all
