Why its called a SPECIAL Dividend Is !14 Feb 2021 11:26
I'ts Special because i'ts a Divi that makes NO difference to the value of your holdings in the company your getting your own money back ,I feel for all those who bought thinking they'll make a nice easy 50p on each share .
Whatever a company gives a special dividend basically its giving you the shareholder part of your investment back ,You'll end up no richer no poorer. Don't think for one minute you'll make an easy 40-50p per share. DYOR
