About Me:

Accountant and Private Investor. I follow UK listed stocks and have a particular interest in small caps.

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I have 2 portfolios. The largest is an ISA where the shareholding is well diversified, some of those shares are income producing, some are funds and some have been selected for growth. As a general rule, whatever I buy here will usually be held for a number of years. I usually only end up making investment decisions here 2 or 3 times a year. My other portfolio focuses purely on small caps and most of the shares here are ones which I tend to spend a great deal of time researching on. My buys here focus purely on capital gain which I think can be made from some of my picks.

I didn't buy Revolution Bars (LON:RBG) until I went to one a couple of months back, it convinced me to buy as I thought the food and cocktails were really good. Just had a quick glance on Tripadvisor, I think you're spot on with your assessment of a lot of the reviews. How they've not even attempted to make themselves sound different in any way,…

Thanks for the write up on NCC (LON:NCC) Graham. I bought some of these shares before all the profit warnings rolled in. Fortunately I felt that the valuation was quite high at the time so I only dropped a very small amount of money into this. This sector is still very appealing to me and I hope that they can get things back on track.

Following last weeks Dispatches it looks like they're homing in on Boohoo again, this time they're looking at their warehouse conditions. It might be affecting their staff this time, although it could be agency workers as I believe that they heavily relied on a company about 4-5 years ago to manage their distribution. I severely doubt that their agency usage is as high now as…

Hi stepone, If someone doesn't use Skype then it's simple - you can just call the person you want to invite. I believe that you can also set a PIN for people so they can dial in a number and they can join the conference, a little bit like an investors call. I've not used something like this yet though, I've had no reason to.…
