Re: What to do with TESCO in my HYP

Firstly, I'm not a TSCO share owner so cards on the table. I DO shop at Tesco ....AFTER shopping at Aldi first and then going to top up with stuff you can't get at Aldi ( exotic stuff...like weetabix type biscuits). The contrast between the two stores is marked. The issue for me is that the manageme...

Just the thing to read before bedtime (not!)

I signed on free 14 day trial on "Stockopedia" and I naturally wanted to review favourite HYP stocks. One of the measures on Stockopedia was the following "Altman Z-score" described below:- " The Bankruptcy Risk Meter gives a visual representation of how likely a company is ...

Re: Pearson Trading Statement

In a similar vein to Rob's last comments. Using the HYPTUSS, hit the "ALL CHARTS" macro button for the shares in your HYP portfolio. Then superimpose the FTSE100 chart and view over say a 5 year window. I was expecting more of a 1:1 correlation between each individual share and the FTSE. T...

Re: New Hyp

I think you can safely remove COB and PSON from your considerations!

Not a good couple of days :(

Goldman Sachs view was 808p on 13 Jan 17.
Alphavalue view 986p today!!
Numis view 710p today
Investec 835p on 5th Jan.

It seems pointless looking at most broker's views!

Re: Pearson Trading Statement

Is it not worth taking a (SMALL) punt on this as a long term recovery? This is on the premise that the SP has dropped 25% and the dividend might be cut to half of it's current sum (bearing in mind the H2 dividend will be paid) so the revised dividend might be 25p/565p or ~4.4%. I'm not saying bet th...

CSI Code in HYPTUSS

I'm looking for the CSI code for a couple of companies which are not in the "digital look datasheet". I've had a shufty on DL but can't seem to find where the codes are (even for the big companies like VOD/BP etc). Any guidance please?

Re: Telegrah - 4pc,5pc or 6pc yield

When I run HYPTUSS with PSON - DigitalLook indicates a div cover of 1.30 (this is a little different from the figure you mention above).

Re: Telegrah - 4pc,5pc or 6pc yield

1.35is the div cover for Pearson at 31 Dec 15 (2015) - source London Stock Exchange. I'm wondering that you only get old data from certain sites unless you pay for it?

Investing.thisismoney.co.uk suggests div cover of 0.9 !!

ADVFN =1.95.

Re: Opinions/Views please.

Is there any capital gains tax considerations to be considered - i,e, if you sell the Stateside property and you make x thousand pounds? Depends on teh difference between buying and selling values I guess. If you inherited property, then the value at probate is the figure to go into the calculation.

Re: Simple Questions on Drawdown

Is it not the case that "if not working", then money would not be refunded through payroll - one would need to claim the refund via form Pxx (??) or via a tax return. (My wife has just been through this). I only wanted to point out that just because you have no income at the moment because...

Re: Opinions/Views please.

I think you might need to provide more info. Generally, pay off any credit card debts first if you have any. If you pay off your mortgage early are there any charges? It is hard to comment when we don't know your family income versus family outgoings. Once again, generally, if you have a debt, I wou...
