    MSG - MCS Services

    I think the div will be more around the 0.002 mark unless they want to unload a lot of franking credits. This next week will be interesting. malachii

    MSG - MCS Services

    MSG has copped a hiding since they came out of the suspension yesterday and I actually thought the announcement was OK. Not fantastic but certainly not enough to knock it back into the low 3s. Anyone got any suggestions as to why? malachii

    MOC - Mortgage Choice

    Looks like the market likes what's being said at the AGM. malachii

    MOC - Mortgage Choice

    I've loved this company long time :) It's an interesting one. I hold it in my "long term" dividend payment account (and have done since just after the float) and I also trade the living daylights out of it. Even in a downturn it's a good, consistent "bouncer" between price levels. Not sure...

    Buy call x write a put - what's the difference?

    Surely this can't be right. If I write a naked put I am guaranteeing that I will buy someone's stock at X price. Even if the price crashes to 0 then I can only lose the exercise price of the option less the credit received for writing the option. eg - If I write a $10 put over XYZ company...

    ESG - Eastern Star Gas

    I find it interesting that 12 months ago we were being berrated for even suggesting this stock might come back in the 70s (thanks kingcarmleo where ever you are). Now it's in the 60s people are talking down this stock. The basic fundamentals haven't changed. It has great land with some really...

    MPO - Molopo Gas

    And another good announcement - this time about the drilling and reserves in South Africa. They are really working on improving the communication. The price seems to have turned and is working it's way back up again. malachii

    MPO - Molopo Gas

    Well - didn't expect the correction to start quite this quickly but the announcement was pretty good - 33% increase in P1 oil reserves and 36% increase in P2 and P3! malachii

    MPO - Molopo Gas

    Gotta say I am surprised at the last 2 days price action. MPO is a good company with good managment, in a good industry with some pretty darn fine real estate. I think the latest action is a little bit of unloading before the end of the year. I picked myself up a parcel this afternoon at 90...

    XAO Technical Analysis

    Re: XAO Analysis Although I think your point is valid -using WBC is a little false as it is just coming out of it's ex div phase. Not saying your wrong - but maybe just that it is a little "over emphasized" with WBC. malachii

    ESG - Eastern Star Gas

    Wow - this is really in an established downtrend. Next support levels seem to be at the 69-71cent levels (used to be resistance - now hopefully support) and after that we are looking mid 60s again. Who would have thought? Technicals aside this is still a good fundamental stock in a sound...

    CBA - Commonwealth Bank of Australia

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the divs. Banks' divs rarely (although it has happened) decrease. We are also coming out of a bit of a difficult time for the banks so I would be surprised if they reduced divs below where they are now. People speculate about interest rates and such but short...

    TLS - Telstra Corporation

    I think it is probably a pretty safe bet (the downgrade). I cant remember an AGM without one! malachii

    CBA - Commonwealth Bank of Australia

    Anyone got any ideas why CBA is copping a hiding of late? It seems to over-react on the downside to most things these last few weeks - especially as banks are making hideous profits. I know the other 3 are all paying divs at the moment but below $49 seems to be on the cheap side. It has...

    Whooping Cough

    We are getting a little off track but I just wanted to make a comment - please dont shoot me down immediately. It is only a small percentage of the population that is not immunised and the government make it difficult to not have a child immunised by tieing parenting payments etc to your...
