New alltime high

VOD has quietly made a new 12-month and all-time high. I suspect it will pull back to test the 14000 area. Time to buy?

But only up about 7-8% YTD, +30% over 3 years, etc. so not very exiting....many other shares that will return much higher profits and much quicker....

Perhaps I should have mentioned the time-frame and reason for buying. I.E. Longer term, 3 years and more, mostly for dividends, capital gains of secondary importance. As I mentioned above, in the short term, I expext it to fall to around 14000

I sometimes struggle with the obsession about dividends, but this maybe that i do not understand the benefits. Reason as follows: Share A: dividend shares: e.g. price increase of 10%/a and dividends of say 3% p.a.; total increase = 13% Share B: capital gain shares: e.g. price increase = 30% p.a. and dividends = 0.5% p.a.; total increase = 30.5% Clearly Share B is the better option or am i missing something (e.g. tax benefits)? Would like to get your views

The process of trading for capital gain only, is thought to be more risky than long term investing in Quality dividend paying stocks. I do trade short term for capital gain too, currently long CPI,DSY,HYP,MDC,RES and ALMI. Perhaps I did not make my point clear: Vodacom has broken out upwards from a multi-year sideways consolidation, which is very bullish. Potential gain 100% in the next three years = 33% per year + dividends.
