I am going to sell this holding after the dividend is paid

william morrison fraser Jan 03rd, 2014 at 01:07 PM

Too much of a one man band. Needs a bullish team member. MYI is falling behind

jaffa Mar 19th, 2013 at 11:29 AM

Are the Murray Intl PLC ORD25p traded on the exchange? I bought the B ORD by mistake and Aberdeen said I need to sell them via my broker and then complete an application and send them a cheque for the ORD25P

Robert Towers Jul 03rd, 2012 at 03:49 PM

Can someone kindly inform me what the difference is between:
Murray International Trust PLC ORD 25p and
Murray Internationsl Trust PLC B ORD 25p

Tony Stachnicki Aug 22nd, 2012 at 03:22 PM

Take a look at this posting:

The dividend payments are replaced by "capital payments".
If you are a higher rate tax payer, this could reduce the amount of tax you have to pay.
