    Telstra shares are up another 2c to $4.69 this afternoon and few people would realise it but the 20 per cent surge from the lows reached in May means that investors who ploughed equally into T1 and T2 are now marginally back in front.

    Let's just assume you put $5000 into T1 at $3.30 and followed up with another $5000 into T2 at $7.70. This would have left you with 2191 Telstra shares for your $10,000.

    Based on $4.69, these shares are today worth $10,276 so you've made a tiny $276 capital profit - equivalent to 2.76 per cent.

    However, you can't ignore this tidy dividend flow:

    1997-98: 14c
    1998-99: 17c
    1999-00: 18c
    2000-01: 19c
    2001-02: 22c
    2002-03: 12c so far with a predicted 13c to be announced on August 28.

    That totals $1.02 in full franked dividends so far which amounts to $2190, bringing the total return on the $10,000 investment to $12,466 or 24.6 per cent over a six year period.

    You'd have been better off riding the property bull market but that is better than putting your money in the bank.

    The government and Telstra have had to screw customers (Telstra's revenues will double from 1995 to 2005) big time just to deliver this sort of return and expect a record $4 billion annual profit announcement from Telstra on August 28.
