Population - nature usually has a way to regulate the population, however Bill Gates clearing up on malaria isn't helping!! Drought, and war - neither of them pleasant or child birth restrictions (good luck with that one!)
Hi Troubles I've been in for a number of years (Windowman days! @ 24p) and I'd always had a £2 target - which I managed to miss twice so I've been happy to collect the rather nice divis. The whole Brexit thing has thrown my plans into confusion and when they spiked at £2 a few days ago I sold 90% happy to get my target price. I'm really unsure currently what an advantageous rate would be as the 2 Brexit dates 31st Jan and end of 2020 will no doubt have a major factor on sp. I like the builders, as we all share the view that they are undervalued, they will no doubt one day make us all happy. As Tom stated, getting back in at the low 180s will allow me to end up with the same qty of shares and buy a nice car! That's the plan!!
Thanks Tom Probably like a lesser version of you, I sold 90% of my holdig at 1.995 so looking to get back in at an advantagous rate. I follow daily but these turbulent times have thrown my crystal ball into a slight confusion!
Firstly, what is a 3% surcharge trying to acheive? Secondly can someone explain the maths in this paragraph from the article? (The higher tax suggests that a wealthy foreign buyer of a £1.5m home in London would pay £183,750 in stamp duty compared with £93,750 for a Londoner buying the property for their own use.) Looks like more than 3% to me. Thirdly, I live in Twickenham where 1.5M buys you a 3 bed terraced house - "wealthy foreign buyers" are not looking for that! Try 5m plus for "wealthy foreign buyers" in London. And finally, wealthy foreign buyers buying a 5m house can easily afford the extra 3% 150k - they usually spend another 1m gutting the place and refurbing.
can someone help me - being ripped off with exchange rate when trading these euro quoted shares via Halifax Trading, they buy them in £ so losing on poor rate offered when buying/selling, pound/euro rate increase not helping either.
