Hang on, hang on, though… There aren’t any unlucky-faces doing the rounds out there, are there?Please don’t tell me there’s people saying they weren’t told, are there? I told ALL the corporate people at 125p and they turned their noses up. And then I told you, Blog, at 370p. We’ve now marched on to 412p and copped a 16p divi.If they kick on like that for the rest of year, that will be a dividend of 15% – almost unheard of in stock-market circles.Choo Choo! Choo Choo!!
