About Me:

700 club gold member. Anniversary yesterday 1/10/2013. Recently returned from New York with a wish to see Wall Street for myself as a bit of a satisfying accomplishment. I first got interested in investments when I was a financial advisor for 14 years. I learned a lot & went to quite a few investment seminars. The one I remember particularly was with Fidelity. They visited the companies that they invested in and held them for a long duration in their portfolios. The other thing was with different currencies that they could buy a particular stock with and of course sell it if it was favourable with another currency. This was potentially more risky of course. It was not long before I realised that all the money from the insurance premiums had to be invested and who was doing it. We used to sell investment bonds where 5% was allowed to be taken tax free once a year on the anniversary of the policy which could run for 20 years.There was a choice of Managed, Property, or Equity to invest into. It was at this point of time that the Property fund went up 40% in less than a year. A simple comparison with the Managed and Equity funds showed the difference. I was soon taking a keen interest in unit trusts and shares, looking for things that were going up and the highest that they had been and bought them. I bought a software package with Up-data which enabled me to be much more efficient, putting stop losses in. Drummed into my head was cut your losses and sell when a stock breached the stop loss and let the profits run. Another stepping stone was to buy myself a Rolls Royce silver shadow that was chestnut brown in colour. The reasons were threefold. 1. That I could afford it. 2. The two managers for the insurance company that I was working for were called Douglas & Rolls. 3. I was still single. As well as doing the insurance business I joined an investment club in Basingstoke and became their chairman. We closed it this year sadly because of ill health with some of the members. Now I have a portfolio that I am able to take out (if & when I want to some cash) just like the insurance bonds but much more flexible. I enjoy the technology stocks and have taken profits several times from Arm Holdings which is the only share that I have held for many years now. Having just got this Stockopedia yesterday (first saw it at an investment seminar in London earlier this year) when I noticed Dart Group (DTG) so that is now in my portfolio too. I suppose you could say I am an analyst & a chartist. It was good to see my portfolio already has Globo, , Blinks, Clingen ,Dart, Wanddisco, opay,Easyjet ,LLoyds Arm Telicom Plus(which has doubled and a bit more but then started to drop so I have just sold almost half and re invested the proceeds into ASOS.) In conclusion I hold about 20 shares, and have just INCREASED my holdings in Globo about two weeks ago, and noticed someone has reduced their holding with Globo to 3%.I hope they are not still holding the poor pawnbroker shares (guess who) -40% in one day followed by further catastrophic drop. A good case for a stoploss . Join the 700 club and put some money to work I say.

Investment Strategy
I trade... constantly
I tend to buy... according to my system
I hold for... a few months
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
Look for good profits,100% growth per year with increase from 1 week 1monthmust be higher% so must 3months & 6months.Share must be as high as it has been & still going up.Volitility minimal. I also check for 5 years If I can.


Helps people all over the world.

Degiro dealings are really cheap. UK @ £1.75 + 0.004%, US is 0.5 euros + 0.004%.. I got this information from our last investment club meeting but have not tried them yet..Only had a first look tonight. I currently use Hargreaves which is a bit expensive for US, so may be worth a go.

Hi Carey, It would appear you must have bought GLAD when it reached it's high point about a month ago.It has been going up again over the last couple of days as you must be aware. The last two XD dates as you should know from Dividend are 14/2/17 and 20/3/17 and paid at the end of the month. As I use Hargreaves the…

This share has been way over valued for a long time. VectorVest is showing a valuation of 82.5p .That puts an immediate red light on straight away as a risk number 1. Stockopedia has too many choices in value.Then the massive sell off of 30M with an average volume of about 1.7M,& still not taking the share price below 82.5p still leaves a risk number…

Having had another look at the shares listed in the thread to investigate further,not all the companies have increased their dividends over the last 3 years..To correct my spelling mistake, the target price check after a pullback is a Fibonacci pattern. The easiest way to show what has been happening is to list them over the last three years dividend payments :-           2016   2015   2014…

Hello Ben, An interesting article,showing good track records of companies paying consistent dividends increasing each year. Although Royal Dutch Shell may be the biggest dividend payer in the world paying £11.1BN, with a market cap of £172BN, the actual %age is showing 7.14% on Stockopedia. As a comparison SHOE ,another AIM company going XD tomorrow 23/2/17 has a dividend of 14.8p on a current share…
