Would a Raving Lesbian not be loaded-up with Disco-Biscuits and shouting "Acceeed"? :o
Is Raving or Raging the appropriate word in this context?

Cannot find SKG as a company anywhere? Raptor. I've had my profitable dalliance with SKG. The reason I sold is because of Irish Dividend withholding Tax.

Re: Transferring shares to my daughter

The current value of the VOD shares is about £860. The simplest way might be for me to sell them, give her the money to buy as many as she can in her own name. How do you hold the shares? If they are in Certificate form you can simply get them transferred to your Daughter via the Registrar. If you ...

Re: SDN’s HYP Report – Jan 2016

Unless your holding in each share is very small indeed, if the portfolio shown represents 15% of your overall Investments you're clearly well on your way to FIRE already.

Re: £133 or £158k

Hi PB, Are you risk adverse or are you looking for an annual 10% or greater returns or what? (I only mention this as many retail companies will be reporting in the next 3 weeks or so and there may be good initial gains if you want to take a punt.) I think Dixons Carphone, Supergroup, Greene King an...

Re: moorfield HYP update 2016

No more than 20 holdings (a nod to Warren Buffett's Punch Card philosophy). No more than 10% capital or income allocated to one share, sector or subsector. (No top ups of RDSB.) I agree with the above sentiments although holding both BP & Shell I've breached the sector criteria with Oil. How lo...

I see you're no longer a fellow Standard Chartered holder. What was your reasoning behind selling? It is a Shrinking Business in a sector which I see having barriers-to-entry lowered by FinTech.
