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've not used something like this yet though, I've had no reason to.…

Hi buyhard, That comment is bang on the money. My workplace has recently started using Skype for Business. It's well integrated with all the Microsoft Products and we're saving a small fortune by moving to cloud-based telephony. I've never used LoopUp before but Skye for Business can do exactly the same things that Paul mentioned above, so I would regard Skype for Business as a…

Perhaps Tesco's acquiring the Booker Group this morning might have some relation to this.

Hi Graham, great work on all your recent updates, I find them very insightful. I was wondering if you might be commenting on this mornings Trading Update from Koovs? Perhaps this is something Paul might do. I can understand why it might not be worth mentioning though, it's a short RNS and not particularly useful at all because it only really shows sales growth. Not…
