    I hope you're right. I prevaricated at selling at 213 but decided to risk waiting for the divi. Felt the results were reasonably good so was surprised at the rapid drop. Putting it down to the change in CEO.

    Struggling to make much sense of today's RNS. Would have thought it was good news.

    Not entirely confident but leaning towards buying more here tomorrow. Will keep for 5+ years so getting more than 7% annual dividend with a more than fair chance of a 10% capital gain.

    I picked up some more last week, can't see it going much lower, may put some more in tomorrow if I sell some laggards.

    Another 7500 this morning for Mrs B based entirely on a 7.5% annual return. I am sure she will be pleased when I tell her.

    The potential dividend seems very attractive and the sp at a 6 year low, due to uncertainty re the change of CEO.

    (Ignore the price label from 2016 - my cursor hovered there as I was copying and pasting the chart.)

    Not just the change in CEO. Trouble with competition in India and Spain and a relatively lean year predicted in their last accounts. A few mergers will help stem losses this year but costs will need to be cut to remain competitive. That said this had been well overdone and it can't be long before the dividend attracts investors. I should really sell my last WTG shares and buy another a few thousand here.

    Beginning to feel a bit worried now! Still thinking of adding though. I've been in Portugal for the last ten days which has been rather lucky as I was getting very itchy fingers around 165p. Think we can expect little progress in h1 results so this may take a further bash.
