@Lamak, it worked surprisingly well. I know Mr Div was looking into this in real life, Mr Div what happened to that? In theory you should have lost the equivalent amount in sales that you made up in divvies, but that's not what happened. The only difference between real life and the game in this case is liquidity. This really deserves looking into...

In the comp we get paid divies on LDT day and not when the actual payment gets paid or when the price goes ex divie. Lamak sold before ex divie day and scored that way. The Record Date for IPF was 15th and he sold on the 13th which was the LTD day. The payment date was 19th. This will never work in real life.
I started here with nothing and still have most of it left.

Not so Orca, the price drops after LDT, usually a friday, but if he sells on a weekend the prices is readjusted after monday mornings opening prices. Also look at some of his trades, the sales often happen many days after the divvie. I'm finding it very interesting!

You are correct. I'm bad at remembering more that 1 date at a time. He did sell on ex divie day and not on the LDT day. Sorry Lamak.

Seems Reuters have removed their free charting. Anyone know where I can get charts? I like jaDEB's charts but don't know where he gets them.

Orca, no. eg. enter bidj.j then select companies.
Here is another local site (Profile Data). But no comparisons. http://www.sharedata.co.za/v2/Scripts/Home.aspx
See screenshot.

Ta Moon. Sharedata is good but I prefer Reuters as I used it for years but lost the link to the charts and now can't find it. Could you please post a link here and I will bookmark it.

P - did not really work out, nailed on a trade on adcorp as i bought purely on div not on my thoughts of the company. Have some success on R50K trades buying good div stock in demand zones - selling when I get to predefined supply zones with no time limit and no stop loss. Just testing at the moment - will give it a full year. Weird hybrid between investing and trading really. Have made just under R8k since the start of Oct so looking good so far.
