Brexit probs, loss of confidence amongst passengers, other airlines with same quality or el cheapo snapping at their heels. Not one I would be buying.

They, based in Spain, do not have #brexidiots issues over price yes loss of confidence maybe.

I turned my nose up at this lot when they were down at a £ or so should have taken the plunge then!

IAG own budget airlines AKA el cheapo and they are the most profitable in their portfolio due mainly to the high percentage of booked seats versus available seats.

I voted for IAG back in our post-Brexit referendum poll. The stats are as follows:
International Consolidated Airlines IAG 30 Jun 2016 £3.50 £6.13 74.95%
A whooping 75% profit and that's excluding dividends! So if you had bought for £1 you would have been jumping over backwards.

a record six month high. Excluding interest income,
revenues up 27% to GBP8.5m (H1 2016: GBP6.7m)

* Underlying(2) profit before tax increased to
GBP310,000 (H1 2016: GBP110,000) and statutory profit
before tax of GBP75,000 (H1 2016: GBP190,000 which
included a GBP628,000 gain from sale of London Stock
Exchange Group plc shares)

* Underlying(2) earnings per share of 0.2p (H1 2016:
0.1p) and statutory earnings per share of 0.0p (2016:
0.1p)

Hammerson makes recommended all share offer for INTU Properties

http://www.iii.co.uk/research/LSE:INTU/ ... t=LSE:INTU

They were on my watch list and nearly bought them last Friday as they were well below my buy price.....oh well another one gets missed by me :(

Shall have to take a look at Hammerson and see what I think.

Sainsburys have purchased the UK operation of the Nectar scheme for £60m. This will bring to an end the UK public's confusion as they have always thought Sainsburys owned Nectar. Something that became very apparent when people were threatening to boycott Sainsburys when Nectar tied up with the Daily Hate Mail.

Trouble is everyone has heard of bitcoin but who can name any of the others? Same as paypal, everyone has heard of it but who can name any others let alone be prepared to use them?
