Investment Strategy
Diversification is ... a hedge for ignorance

I use a mixture of dart throwing and technical analysis to identify undervalued stocks, and mesmerism to increase their prices. I had unmatched success with this combination, from march to september 2009.

I took an accounting course a while ago, and partly for fun the professor described a forensic accounting technique, which I've been mulling over. In the spirit of Christmas, that time of year when we give away useless stuff to people we barely know, I thought I'd contribute the findings to the investing public. You can read about Benford's law on wikipedia. The article there…

You won't find anything new or unexpected in this piece - it will only confirm some common observations.I got interested in those network visualisations you see sometimes, and resolved to make one. As a slave to Twitter, and follower of some of this site's regulars, I thought mapping PI Twitter was a project. It's made with R and Gephi.First thing is to know what I'm…

There's much disappointment about the lack of an article on BooHoo today, so I'm going to step in. Prepare to be further underwhelmed. I'm wanted to see how BOO compared to Asos subsequent to the launch of Boo's app, and you can get the data to do this: a moving average of web traffic from and app downloads from I only have the…

Here are some graphs: they show a bunch of companies placed according to the automatically generated Earnings-Power (vertical-axis) and Graham valuations (horizontal) from this site. EPV is supposed to consider the firm as it stands today, Graham as the firm it will grow into. AIUI. Overvalued is top left, Undervalued bottom right. No particular rationale for the choices of firms: some are people's picks for…

Volex (LON:VLX) are an electrical cables manufacturer. At the start of the year they were pleased to be a supplier to Apple: '..Significant progress in developing our relationship with our biggest customer, resulting in increased allocations. ..we have made further substantial and largely unbudgeted investments in both capital and operating expenditure in Q1 FY2013. ..1,000 net new production staff during the quarter, more than a…

Very interesting piece of research. Folk wisdom gives way to data-backed rules. You might I suppose put a new line on your master stockrank chart for the cohort of firms with top quality/momentum but less than maximum value rank. Not wanting to sound greedy, but immediately sounding greedy, can you consider repeating this kind of study for new flotations? I think it would be interestinng…

Gattaca Gattaca (LON:GATC) was being discussed last week: they were, in the webcast, pretty optimistic about US expansion, & seemed to be ready and organized. Infrastructure is going to be a priority for the Donald - out of necessity and out of personal interest. £MAGA

The important thing is to leverage the amount of entertainment you get from a gamble. As with shopping it's more about the desire than the ownership, so a punt on, say, an election outcome made 3 months out, even on the outsider, is going to provide a lot of interest. (I have £5 on Evan McMullin. 2000:1!) A punt on a story stock which gives…

I heard Christopher Mills talk at the UKIP conference - some kind of economic spokesman. Spoke really interestingly about housing (hes on the board at Gleeson) amongst other things. The other firms at which he sits looked speculative, on stockopedia's pages at least, but that's interesting to hear that he has a reputatoin for astuteness.

A lot of people feel, at least a friend of mine said, or at least I read in a book somewhere, that losing is a bit more real than winning. Taking some action is definitely real, but..If you can meet with Triumph and DisasterAnd treat those two impostors just the same;..Winning is more of an imposter than Losing. Hence it's a manly thing to.. ..make…
