Register here for the next investor webinar (27th Feb) with Sovereign Metals (SVML), Europa Oil & Gas (EOG) and Microsalt (SALT).
Regular income returns and finally, some capital appreciation. Oh and dividend paid on time - as good as it gets. Any downside here? After nearly 2 years, the pessimist in me says too good to be true but what's to derail it...touch wood. GL all.
Me too lti. The 'complaints officer' was conveniently out of the office this morning so no joy, although a message would be passed on. I managed to remain civil but hinted at ombudsman involvement. Honestly, they're behaving like a back street second hand car dealership...
Progress of sorts. HSBC 'complaints specialist' owned up to admin errors having occurred. He assured me that he would sort it either by the end of the day or early next week. Treated like royalty I was, ahem, although actions speak louder etc.
HL look after my wife's divis Tom. In her experience they are very prompt with all payments, usually on or around the 12th of each month (HSBC take note).
I'm loath to sell SMIF as it's been a terrific income stock for me over the years. With the share price looking a tad more energetic, it's one I want to hang on to, so I hope all's settled by next week. Happy updating LTI, gla.
Nothing showing in my account today. November's bumper pay out went in 3 weeks late and the December 1st divi is now 4 weeks (!) late....The HSBC agent who is dealing with the problem actually phoned yesterday so I must be ruffling a few feathers. He suggested that SMIF were at fault, so it's become a blame game. I will be in contact with him today as well as pressing SMIF for an explanation - last time they 'denied any wrong doing' (groan) and implied HSBC inefficiency - who to believe?
I'm weary of this; if SMIF are the culprits then respect's out of the window and I will sell up next week and add to my blue chips which have always paid divis a day early ie PHNX, GSK. Investing should be fun and worry free, eh? ATB
Aye Gold, a poor show from HSBC. At first they blamed SMIF who were astonished when contacted, by both the accusation and the delay. Hsbc then admitted only partial culpability, citing custodian tax complications. Their agent admitted to never having known of such a delay (4 weeks!) and promised to get back to me within 1 working day. Unsurprisingly that never happened as it fitted in perfectly with the cavalier, uncaring practices hsbc seem to have adopted.
I will give it until the new year, as it is a MONTHLY income payment and then regrettably fire up the ombudsman who might be able to shake things up a bit. We all have better things to be doing - what a farce! ATB
Month for the real estate giant. Goldman Sachs going Landsec bullish for'24 has acted as a shot in the arm for our venerable blue chip. I wlll hold tight as the generous quarterly divis make this a confirmed keeper. Gl all.
