Oh I hear you, they'll have the same issues for me.
Thinking about it maybe the bigher name players like Suarez may be more likely to market sell because people will buy a name they know, and that'll come at a premium. Might give it a go when Barca have a decent run of games and see what happens, I'm getting sod all divs from my other holds!
My guess is that people are seeing the MB potential he has, that's why I bought in a while ago. He got 520MB off 5 articles yesterday, and has 120MB off 1 today, so it's possible people are seeing that and are buying in for media next season, which is less than a month away (yay).
A few bits of unsubstantiated speculation that he could be Man U captain next season, which would do his exposure the world of good.
I agree that a move to Barcelona wouldn't necessarily be the best for his MB but would be considerably better for his PB prospects.
He's 28p you don't need to put a grand on... 500 shares is £140 or 1000 £280... Do you like holding 1000s of shares in a player that won't have massive demand?
I have 500 Guilbert so would love you to put a grand in...
@TheFearlessFox@TheFearlessFox What you are suggesting is the FI continue to roll out various cloaked dividends and promotions which serve only to attract short term investment. The commission earnt then shows as increased revenue on FI books and gives yourself and others the false impression of heady growth. Yet if you do the maths using any of the top ten as an example , the dividend offers are, as I suggested cloaked. If you were to experiment and take a top ten player and calculated the dividends earnt however they are promoted against capitol growth ,factor in commission and you would be lucky to break even for the period of any promotion. If you consider the option on of IS and check how the spreads are set , especially at the top end of the market, you would find they fluctuate to a point where any dividend earnt is digested by the spread. Overall this means that after a SS or dividend promotion anyone investing is effectively locked in for at least in my estimation for 6 months before any realistic profit may be realised, but for the promotion run time you would need to be extremely lucky to escape with a profit.
So to conclude : You stated that corrections are not needed as they happen naturally in periods and then go on to add that FI integrating new dividends etc is a good thing. New dividends and share splits are corrections that are not natural. As explained above they are tools to attract a boost of investment and a means increase the capitol flowing into FI that serve little benefit to investors as a whole. It is an illusion that any dividend will cover capitol loss long term so basing any strategy on any dividend is blinkered and if you do the maths it is fact. It is also impossible to make informed trading decisions if you are unable to do the sums and get to the facts. If you neglect to do this you are relying on luck.
