Good morning, it's Paul here.

To get you started today, I added some more sections to Tuesday's report in the evening - the full report is here. It covers updates from: Cenkos, Sprue Aegis, Gear4Music, Zytronic, Patisserie Valerie, Accrol, and Lookers.

Timing of these reports

I'd like to respond to a critical reader comment yesterday, which I think was a bit of a misunderstanding.

So this is just to clarify, re timing of these reports. We asked readers a while back whether they wanted a report out every day at a certain time (e.g. 1pm), or whether they were happy for me & Graham to take our time, and go into more detail. Much to my surprise, the reaction from readers was overwhelmingly that you are happy with us taking our time, and that people would rather see more detail & thought going into the articles, than us rushing to meet a deadline. So that's what we do.

People also need to bear in mind that (by far) my main living is from my own investment portfolio - capital gains, and dividends. So to a certain extent, these reports are a sideline, or a by-product of what I spend most of my time doing - researching individual companies, reading broker notes, etc.

There's a lot of background reading, fact checking & thought that goes into each report, each day. That takes time, and sometimes after a very intense 6 hours work from 7am, I'm mentally drained by lunchtime. So I tend to down tools, and have a long lunch, then resume working later in the afternoon, and often going right through into the evening. I finished yesterday's report after 10pm, for example.

As a reader pointed out in yesterday's comments, these reports are free to everyone, and are not part of the Stockopedia subscription. Therefore, whatever arrangements that Stockopedia & I have re remuneration, are nobody else's business really.
