So how long have you had these shares? 

Unless you bought them in December or January you are currently sitting on a loss - possibly quite a substantial loss.

Thanks for your interest

I got them in  around 2000 a broker came into my book shop and   he  said to buy them . I paid about a £1000  and them  I bought some more. later on  when they had a share issue.They went up to arpund £10,000 . When the  crash came they dropped right down.  I bought some more  about a year ago with another share issue offer came . I just pick up the dividend  twice a year, which is very good compared with interest rates you get  at the bank. I really have no intention of selling them.  I am 76 this year so unless I go broke they will be left to my kids.

They are just a good source of income for me.  good solid company that does very well, builds schools and hospitals and the like.

My financial advice is never to take professional financial advice from anyone over the age of 50.  If they are any good they'll have taken their own advice and been able to retire by then.
