This morning Nigel noted that Neil Woodford had been buying Kier – around 1.2% of it in the wake of last week’s awful results and a 79% pruning of the dividend. It is not exactly the sort of performance for an equity income fund, I would have thought! But It turns out that Neil has also been selling Paypoint (PAY) – which trades on an underlying yield of c 5.5% (but 9.9% if you include bonus payments) and where the payout is safe as houses. That sounds perfect for an equity income fund! I must be stupid…..
