anglo is offering it' s shareholders the DRIP share options instead dividend payout.
i cannot seem to find out what share price they are offering ? unless i missed it.
your comments please
Gererally I would avoid this sort of thing. The decision whether or not to acquire more shares is in my book anyway something that needs to be actively taken. Commodities are not like utilities (where an income stream chuggs along)
TAKE THE MONEY and ..?
Being Viceroy'ed. I know there are some keen Capitec shareholders on site, so what would you do if you had a bank account with them now? Do you trust what Viceroy are saying? Or not? Surely Capitec is operating in a "more-regulated" industry than Steinhoff? What's the thoughts here.
Okay , so the fact is that these lenders are always risky - and ABIL was funded very riskely ( sp?) but what we are reading in the report is allegations of fraud.
It is either true or it is not. The cases may or may not give rise to a class action. ?? ?
So while the crowd cheers on Viceroy - the real grounds for the applause /noise(?) is that they claim fraud is at the base of all this.
So now you ar asking me to believe that the rest of the brokers asset managers did not ask the same questions. And moreover they
simply accepted that no fraud could exist - in an industry which has ABIL history - and a business model where write- offs are a given,
So you ask a simple couple of questions - linked to the number of clients who were "refinanced" and or whose loans have been increased and what the
safety margins are ito customer loans at customer and corpoarte level - forget about the law limits! So either they lied or... Cmon.
Low write offs are a concern - no one can dispute that they are dealing in the same market as those who have higher write-offs.
ARE they a legacy bank? Nope. ;Lower costs. Do they do better risk assessments than the histerical banks in this market? Possibly?
Better margin - confess I have not looked at the accounts.
But I did not buy them and the sole reason is that these lenders are expensive - and the growth party has to come to an end - like its doing now.
Another reason for not buying PSG - who are buffalo's - ask their clients - they charge without reason- and they are also overpriced.
So lets see how this pans out - Mr Wiese at least made one wise decision.
My latest valuation on SNH is R4
Consideration - Shares owned in other companies vs Debt owed.
Other issues still to consider:-
Possible fines still to be issued
SNH will re-state their 2016 financials
Wha happened to the Deutsche Bank ETF's? How can I trade Japan?
I would like to watch the recordings of the SB OST webinars. Can somebody please give me some directions to help me to find them?
I am particularly interested in the Flash Insight webinars presented by Stuart Thompson, where he presents his assessments of specific companies. I was under the impression that links to the recordings could be found somewhere on the SB OST platform after logging in. I do not know where I got this idea. I have tried to look, but I have not found anything at this point.
Anyway, the SB OST YouTube channel has recordings of some webinars. You can navigate to the channel by clicking the link. More webinar recordings can be found on Standard Bank's other YouTube channels: Standard Bank, Standard Bank Group. Please excuse me for not adding more direct links to the webinars. Try searching the playlists.
For the benefit of the community, perhaps we should create a forum thread where all the links to the recordings of webinars can be posted. We can work something out.
All the best to everybody.
Solution: The webinars can be found on the home page of the SB OST platform -- once you have logged in. They can be found in the "Special Announcements" section on the left-hand side of the webpage. See the screenshot below. The webinars are available for download. You will find the instructions on the page with the links to the webinars.
I tried to add some screenshots but, evidently, this is not allowed.
After summarising my total dividends recieved since 2007, I can now see the "direct" effect of good dividend paying shares. Since 2007, dividends on my DST shares and BTI shares are 95% and 75%, respectively, of the total cost of the purchases. In a few years, the dividends will have "paid" off my shares on BTI (assuming people still continue smoking). Dividends have so far paid for 50% of my SPP, SUR and VOD shares. What is really positive to see, is the compound effect of the good dividend yield on a share price that generally goes up. The effect is "very noticeable" now, after holding various shares for some years. And, yes, while this can be modelled and ploted in spreadsheets and graphs, the tangible return (in my account) is nice to see. I look forward to the day where the dividend for a share, is more than the price I paid. That, I expect, is still some years to come. Anyway, hoooray for dividends.
"I had no real idea how to value a company (not sure I do now)" this is true of us all. Anybody suggestign they KNOW how to value is in for a surprise.
But yes divs are great but takes time and what I really like is that I can then deploy the capital as I want. For eg dividends have helped build me a position in ADH as I took divs from others and bought ADH.
Hi, Is anyone able to explain to me how the tax for a foreign ETF (eg. DBXEU) in your TFSA account works.
I thought the taxes should not matter but it gets treated differently for foreign ETFs. Anyone have a link or info where I can read about it?
The taxes are foreign tax. Local tax is not deducted in a TFIA but you still have to pay foreign tax. You can read an article written by @SimonPB on the tax-fee matter. Pay attention to the second-last paragraph: http://www.fin24.com/Finweek/Investment/no-the-etf-owners-are-not-ripping-you-off-20170803
Good day all
Are you all aware that SYGNIA has bought DBX,I cannot remember who had it previously but we are NOW being charged an ETF fee which never happened before, I received dividends of R3773 and they took off a fee of R1585. This is daylight robbery?
This is besides the foreign tax of R555, therefore I only made a profit of R877. I feel like selling all my DBX shares as a fee was never charged before. Any comments.
Was wondering whether anyone can provide their views on why CIL keeps losing ground. The share price is down to levels last seen in 2013 when their HEPS was half of what it is today and it is already down from last year Novembers rights offer price of R19.30. Could it be that the drop in HEPS compared to the previous period is the cause of the sell-off or is it that their prospects have dwindled down to nought and this share is going to turn out to be the proverbial dog share ......
I dont understand the Script distribution for Santova. If you take the cash dividends, the Rand value in dividends will be greater than the Script because Santova will only give you
0.01972 for every 100 shares held. Am I reading this correctly?
