franked dividends

  1. 25 Posts.
    Hi all, I have just sacked my "Financial advisors" and coming to terms with running my shares myself with an e-trade acc. I feel I couldn't do any worse than they did, as they did nothing. (Apart from initial set-up) except charge fees.
    Why do Franked dividends have a difference of percentage with the same company over a given year?
    Is it related to origion of capital ie overseas cash as opposed to cash earned within Aust??

    Interested to get advice from any punters who have been where I am now. I have mainly a blue chip long term portfolio with a couple of gold specs thrown in for fun, but interested to hear any tips or warnings from more experienced investors.
