Questor Income Portfolio: it sounds like heresy from a share-tipping column but income investors should hope that the bank’s share price remains depressed Since we added Lloyds Banking Group shares to Questor’s Income Portfolio in December 2016 the annual dividend has risen by about 5pc while the share price has gone nowhere. But far from lamenting the failure of the shares to rise, we should positively welcome it because it will in time make our readers better off. How can this be so? The full-year dividend for 2017, our first full year of ownership, was 3.05p a share. In its full-year results for 2018, published on Wednesday, the bank said it would pay a total divi of 3.21p, a rise of 5.2pc....

THE multinational company Tesla Inc was founded in 2003 and is based in Palo Alto, California. The company though has been having a bumpy ride lately, largely attributed to the words and actions of its chief executive Elon Musk. What is Tesla's share price? The company’s share price has reflected the firm’s fortunes. Its shares started September 7 at just over $260 but plunged dramatically to a low of $252.25 at 9.40am. The price quickly recovered though, hitting a high of $268.35 before sliding back to $262.87. Over the past 12 months though its shares have peaked at £389.61 while slumping to a low of £244.59.

The company now sits on an index for small and mid-sized firms. It's a symbol of how far the company has fallen in recent years - with billions in shareholder value vaporised. The company is in the process of raising as much as €800m as it seeks to give itself breathing space to pay down a heavy debt burden. In Switzerland the company is now valued at around CHF910.6m (€795.8m). That compares to almost CHF6bn at the end of July 2014. In an announcement the Swiss market authorities said Aryzta would be excluded from the SLI index - which encompasses the 30 largest and most liquid shares on the Swiss equity market - following a regular review of the index. The downgrade will hurt Aryzta's market visibility as it seeks to raise the fresh capital. Given that is the case, it may also prompt questions about whether a dual listing in Ireland and Switzerland is worth maintaining. Ian Hunter, an equity analyst at Investec, said that the way the share price performs between now and … [Read more...] about Share price slump sees Aryzta dumped from Swiss blue chips
Japan's Sharp has scrapped its plans to issue $1.8bn in new shares, just weeks after its share price began to plummet as a result of the announcement. Its share price fell as much as 21 per cent since the announcement on June 5th, over investor fears that the deal would dilute earnings per share by about 20 per cent. As the decision to ditch the issuance was announced late last night, Sharp's share price rose 17 per cent by early afternoon. It closed the market at an increase of 15 per cent. Read more: Japan's Sharp is buying Toshiba's PC unit, but its share price is falling The company said in a statement that the decision to cancel was made over fears of the impending impact of trade friction between the US and China. Analysts however have disagreed, arguing that it was instead the June 5th announcement's resulting share price erosion that caused the about-face. Until markets opened in Japan this morning, the broader Tokyo stock market had only fallen by 1 per cent over the same … [Read more...] about Japan’s Sharp has scrapped its $1.8bn share sale, after the news caused its share price to slump dramatically
