SUMMER UPDATE 25/7/2017 Preliminary update

TOP 40 SHARE AND DERIVATIVE CLUB
(INVESTMENT PRODUCTS)
For shares with their FINAL DECLARATION dates in Nov,Dec and January.The more important dates are the DIVIDEND dates and then the PAY dates that can range up to a month,or more later than the Declaration date.All shares are in the TOP 40 unless otherwise mentioned.Mostly coming up to their finals I take no responsibility for any errors or omissions.Do remember to do your own research as to why shares perform in a certain way.The regression line  is a good guide for longer term derivitives.
DO REMEMBER TO PHONE THE BANKS IF YOU ARE NOT CERTAIN HOW CERTAIN DERIVATIVES WORK

JANUARY UPDATE
REALLY A VERY POOR FINISH FOR THE SUMMER LIST. 
 COMMENT
DEC 2013  Top heavy TIGER BRANDS has under performed the market.Pioneer Foods shows the way.Surely the company needs a shake up?.No use blaming market conditions!

OCT 2013 
A poor start to the summer list so far.PPC and ARL are starting to show  value.ABL has had a cash injection,how ever a great deal will depend on the terms of that loan.

JANUARY COMMENT the shares that did well showed the most momentum TOWARDS THEIR DECLARATION DATES
December Update  Generally  a poor showing,to succeed one has to be very selective. 
NOVEMBER UPDATE. A new range of long term instalments are now available from Standard bank on major shares ,expiring  in October 2012. Might be worth taking for TBS(Only my opinion)
*= POPULAR WITH INVESTORS NOT TOP 40 SHARES
**= COMING UP THEIR INTERIMS WHERE DIVIDENDS ARE USUALLY EQUAL TO THEIR FINAL DIVIDENDS

*NPN IS NOW UP TO ITS INTERIM AND AS ITDOES ONLY PAY ONE DIVIDEND YEARLYIT SHOULD BE A GOOD RUNNER UP TO ITS FINAL IN JUNE.IT MIGHT BE ONE WORTH KEEPING.
