Tinhat, thanks for the excellent post. A great insight with lots for me to think over. Cheers!

Hi - sorry, made an error with my grossed up dividend calculations - it was late at night :p . For a 15% tax rate to gross up the dividend for franking credits you would divide the dividend (or yield) by 0.7 and multiply by 0.85.

Example:
GZL dividends in FY12 18c per share
(18 / 0.7) x 0.85 = 21.9

To gross up the yield of 8.65%
(8.65 / 0.07) x 0.85 = 10.5

Good luck.
not quite, tinhat;
you multiply the yield by 1.214
results may be pretty close, but in the interest of accuracy, you multiply by 0.85 and divide by 0.7

PS: oops - I see you noticed yourself

Wilto, I'm a bit confused by your screenshot.
It says "Market Value \$56,647" Change since last valuation % \$50,852 : +877.52%" ?????

And the way the individual stocks are shown seems odd. I'd normally expect to see your buy price, the quantity, the then capital value, then the \$ and % rise or fall, then the current total value.

That would be good, wilto, but you're under no obligation, of course.

Better up than down!

Timing seems to be pretty good.
There are not that many financial crises like this one and this one is pretty much solved with all the monopoly money.
May want to start exiting when inflation suddenly starts to rear it's head all over the joint!

Yes.
But you need to understand the definition of crises.
There are many of course, especially if you are a politician.
A crises will morph, mutate change from black to white and every colour in between depending on the hardness and softness of your cushion.
The machine has been very well oiled and is running beautifully again.
The glass is half full to be sure and should stay that way for some time.

Without working it out, I believe this is an "annualised gain." Which, as you pointed out is a bit silly considering it is based on only two days worth of performance.

Err no...just pointing out that ANZ have a cheap index tracking fund, your shares have gone up a little and the index has gone up a little = same result less brokerage x 12
