RE: Did Aldi Lidl B&M Just make £5bn & returned to Investors +5% divi26 Mar 2021 11:03
You're not listening very well, only one of the businesses wasn't profitable .. I'm sure someone is going to put you right on 'a company never selling a successful company' .. I believe Tesco sold them and also the Polish business to streamline their business, also 2.5 billion was paid into the pension fund .. all this information is available online..

So the shareholders must have been much better off after that ????.. they sold one of the business in the far east was successful the other not so but but the actual amount was £8bn, not bad since they only brought the business originally for£180m ..
Once a share is dropping I guess you have to stick with it, unless you're positive it's going to drop further, you'd hope it has bottomed out but who would take that gamble, yes you would have been better investing in eg, Barclays, but the time for that has passed, I think stick with it .. things can turn round pretty quick ..
Lakcaj .. Yeah we could do with something lighting a fire beneath this one .. I'm sure it will bounce back a bit though .. it always seems to although I don't see it getting beyond 250, some forcasting around 300p but I don't see it ..
Over the last year investors have been looking forward to some date or other, often to be disappointed .. tomorrow is another case .. share price has recovered a little which might persuade investors to reinvest their dividend ..
RE: Price spike with re-investment from special div18 Feb 2021 14:29
IAPR I've done exactly the same, so!d last week (pre exdiv) at 246.5 so I'm fairly happy considering I was eyeing it up at 239 yesterday .. I think it could go lower but it's a case of being happy with the price your in at .. I've got caught out being greedy before .. I had a few quotes rejected before a successful buy, I wonder why? I'm with IG .. I'm better of than if id stayed in for the dividend .. Good luck ..
RE: BUY BACK CONSOLIDATION CONFUSION17 Feb 2021 15:30
I'm swithering on buying today, one thing I've learned is when you think Tesco can't drop any lower - they can! I'd be happy buying in at 236, that's 10p down on what I sold last week and have moved the capital into an ISA ..
I don't think anyone can tell you for sure, it might become clearer on opening on monday when you might have an idea of what your shares are worth, I've heard estimates from 190 to 315 !! .. I sold at 247 and quite happy my money is safe, I bought in at 211 .. will be watching with interest monday morning ..
