    Always opportunities.
    Indeed always opportunities and although I missed PAZ, I'm happy with PLX in my portfolio.

    Must say the assumption that one would stick with one company for 10 yrs as a viable strategy is a bit suspect IMHO. ATM has so far been my longest investment at 5 yrs, and while I may well still hold some in 5 yrs, it is more likely that I'll have considerably reduced my holding and re-invested elsewhere.

    It might be interesting to see what actual NZ companies investors have stuck with for the last 10 yrs and who has done best?

    I held EBO for over 25 years.I think people who brought into the IPOs of the following companies would be rather pleased they never sold.
    AIA,FRE,IFT,MFT,POT,RYM.TPW.

    That's a bit mean spirited, if you were offered 5% compounding (linear) for 22 years, right now, would you take it?

    But $92000 (or an extra 44k approx.) if dividends reinvested annually at an equal rate. And Allah alone knows what if reinvested on receipt. (quarterly)

    Actually it works out at 4.87% (7.27% gross) with the reinvestment.

    Not my best investment but a long way from my worse ones.

    Apologies I wasn't trying to be mean-spirited. Just trying to gain a little more understanding.

    But today a 6 month term deposit might be 3%? Back then was about 7-8% - so completely different environments.....

    Regardless right now could go buy Argosy at 4.61% yield, and even KPG is 4.32% (after tax).
