I am down on nearly all my stocks but up on nearly all my funds and trusts except emerging markets which have been clobbered lately. I find that in the main, whatever I buy as an individual stock goes down.
PLUS has its ups and downs but is on an uptrend since early 2019. Shorts are nil. Modest target of mid 1500s from PEEL HUNT seems reasonable in short term. Very attractive dividend. If US venture has legs we are in a good position. But then again - what do I know.
I'd like for my average to reduce so I'm not running at a loss but can't see that happening any time soon. Dont know yet whether to auto reinvest the dividend. My prediction is bound to come true which will annoy me. It seems obvious the MMs will hike the price for a day or two and every penny counts.
No doubt we'll be underwater by the close. More buys than sells so far if the figures are to be believed. It seems that the market wants to continually punish vodafone. I guess the main problem is the continual racking up of debt. Looks like madness. When will they say enough is enough now let's make a decent return for shareholders?
This has been on a downtrend for 5 years. I made a miscalculation when I bought in in May thinking gambling on a few pence rise to 130-140 maybe. So it's a trading stock. The annual downtrend expunges the dividend. Once again locked in to avoid selling at a loss. If there was a takeover then the sp may rise?
It's all my fault. I was deluded to buy into Vod again as it was rising in May. The story hasn't changed. They keep splashing out money on this and that infrastructure with no regard to debt and shareholder value. However, no-one is able to call them to account.
It's optimistic to think we'll have support at 120 for two reasons: 1. I bought VOD again recently. It always means a long period in the doldrums. 2. It now looks like a new step down is occurring. How silly of me to think we had a shallow uptrend. Do we really have more buy than sells though today? With a such a tight spread the stats may be wrong for all we know.
No it usually rises to ex-div date. I thought they were going to miss this july's dividend but at least I was wrong about that. Problem here now I suspect is that the market effectively sees little more growth.
Presume the 'will' = 'we'. Anyway I'd say yes. Big drop ex-div but despite my natural cynism it looks like a gently uptrend now. What is fascinating is all the broker buy ratings with tp's way above where we are now. Are they all deluded - can they all be wrong?
