AV Price Commentary

why down 5% today
Some big boy got his dividend and got out.
Just ex-dividend day. Completely normal as it's roughly the amount that Aviva pay out in dividend
I have an 0800 number if you are thinking of buying Aviva. They will talk you down and suggest a pill.
Brought in to it during Covid and made a nice profit on it plus nice dividend payments
why the huge jump today?
new share buyback
Waste of time give you special dividend but reduce your share holding by same amount they give you , no financial gain at all !
I don't understand ,how yous guys did not read the circular that Aviva sent out,they explained what shares you were going to lost,even before the vote,if you had done your homework,you wouldn't of voted for it
Agree. I also don't understand why people didn't think that the payout wouldn't already be reflected in the share price - this happens every time a stock goes ex-div.
Well that was a pointless excersise for the shareholder. they take away 24% of your shares leaving you with 76% of your shares at the same price £3.95 then they give you roughly the money your short back but by the time I could buy Aviva shares the price was £4.17 so not able to buy as many shares so now out of pocket and a smaller holding. The original information I recieved stated "Aviva wants to pay shareholders some of the proceeds following the disposal of eight non-core businesses" so where is then Aviva, feeling conned and ripped off.
Agreed pointless , probably saved tax . Everywhere return ing cash shown special dividend . but nicked our shares and gave back our own money .. And we lost gains because of time delay , sharp practice . !!!
You are right. Many companies did the same, e.g. National Grid, Standard Life Aberdeen, Tesco, etc ..they called it return capital to the shareholders but really they forced you to sell the shares at the price they decide. if you are lucky, they might return higher dividends because there is now fewer shares but in general, the share lose value, e.g. SLA, now ABDN, lost almost 50% since buy back. If you wait long enough they might get back to some decent value and you might rip the profit. They are just a number game and they dictate the rules. Whatever the outcome, good luck.
Complete let down from aviva . I assumed i would keep my investment as it was and gain £25 k windfall for their earnings they wanted to share… but no they basically give me part of my money back so reduce my share stock but my whole investment stayed the same… I can’t buy more share on the rise as money not available… so basically im worse off… really thought id get a good £25k on top of what money i had invested but no im even but can’t invest until Friday with the return of capital…. Obviously us investers don’t count…
Complete rip off given us as investors nothing . Could have sold my own shares . Or are we going to see massive increase in stock .
so fuc* up had my shares consolidated this morning, now 1,500 down.
Are you really down, or os that just the result of a huge ex-div today?
I thought the idea was to share their profit. But im no better off .. what a con… its not what it was supposed to be . I thought id get a nice little windfall but no i got less shares and a payout of the difference in value. So no extra . What a con and cant buy in as 2 days to clear…
Agreed hardly a special dividend . investors conned. Reduced our shares to pay for it .
seems to me this site is slow at giving its reviews, 2hen they had strong buy this morning, it should have been sell then .
This share is under valued but under performing
Slow recovery but moving
be hitting £5 around new year, prob before Xmas
Sub 4 on the way
What's with the sells?
Vote Bullish guys thanks you
these will be 5 pounds a pop soon enough. fill your boots
I brought at the start of the crash so making a tidy profit now
Nice recovery recently. I'm still down so hoping to see more of a rise soon. Happy to keep collecting dividends in the meantime
Ex divi date gone people pump and dump for it
why is this share down?
bought this back in March at 210...its a shame that its still on 270... Tesla has more than 10 fold since then
Whatever happens in earnings is a good longterm play. Buy now and wait till it goes up if earnings are good, or shares go down and you can buy at a cheaper price!
Brought this share back in march, its a shame i didnt have anymore spare cash to buy more at the time
Happy dividend day everyone! 😁
target @ 215
is it time to buy at 279
We think aviva will pass the 300 mark?
Hope you caught it this AM
why the drop
