I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread covering share tips - purchases / sales giving the reasoning why.

As  Dosboder this should not be used to pump shares but a sharing of views.

 

My Purchase today. 1100 shares in Marstons Plc (PubCo)

Why?

5.7% Divi yield. PE 9.5 & divi cover of 2.  Brew a nice range of beers too.

Not bought as a growth share but 5.7% dividend a dam sight more attractive than the sub 1% I'm getting on cash deposits.

I've put an order in this morning for 4,250 shares in Marstons. I have been invested here before, took profits minds. I'll hold this time round.

As I said in my original post its a dividend play in these ZIRP forever days.

5.7% divi vs <1% in cash ISA

I agree, but if it drops into the lower range 114-75 youd lose 30-40% of your investment (not saying this is going to happen)

Which is why I always take a close look at PE ratios and dividend cover.

Another share I have been buying and selling for 15 years is Mcbride which cycle between 95p and 1.90p. In that time I have made profits that would run a reasonable second hand car on that share alone.

I've done quite well out of McBride in the past too. Currently not holding.
