Hi Patrick - Motus does show in my portfolio - Thanks. The drop in price of Imperial does seem to mirror my personal portfolio but I think there is still some shaking out to be done as according to my personal portfolio there is no cost associated with buying Motus
Will revert in need at a later stage if circumstances change

Sure. The costs didn't come out of your portfolio, but they would have come out of the share price of imperial. I imagine there would be a base cost in your personal portfolio, otherwise you would show 100% profit on selling one day and pay huge CGT.

Looking at my portfolio it now shows a cost of 1 Imperial share at R 97.20 against a current trading price of R 63.18. On the other hand Motus is now showing a unit cost of R 143.39 against a trading price of R 94.14 so in essence shareholders suffered a loss in unbundling.
Seems that it was not a widely accepted unbundling move - I will have to speak to my ex banker colleagues to find out why they got it so wrong

No but I personally think the way to go is with easy equities. It used to be ABSA but they aren't trustworthy.

In terms of easy equities yes, in terms of the post office no!

I was at Simon Brown JSE talk light night with the year end wrap up and predictions for the future. He still thinks the rand could hit R10/$, at the very leaast sub R11. The big danger is eskom.

When? You gotta love prophets who don't clarify their predictions.  :)

Personally I agree we will get back to around 10 on USD, but in around 2-3 years time. For now we are more likely to bounce around the 14 - 15 level, until elections and the Eskom crisis is over. The silver lining with Eskom could hopefully be that we see it break up into generation - transmission - distribution, and we get a deregulated power market, and steadily falling prices.... Wow, that would be nice, and we could finally join the developing world with a free market.

It's gonna be years before Eskom is sorted out. It has already begun, but it might end up worse-off for the consumer ito pricing. We have it easy right now imo..

The US markets have really messed up my festive period! This week is surely going to see more selling off, just heavy...
