Thank you Graham, for giving very perceptive stand up commentary on umpteen shares on the Stockopedia stand at the UK Investor show today. Impressive stamina too.

Also, the Stockopedia stand was one of the better presented.

In comparison, I walked past the stand of a direct rival & thought my eyesight must be really crocked, but no, they really did have fuzzy unreadable text on the wall posters. Now if that's the level of care taken over the rival "shop window", I'll be keeping my business here.

Stockopedia is very good and user friendly. I wouldn't just dismiss Sharescope/SharePad though. I used them both and for various reasons think they both have advantages and disadvantages. Stockopedia is more user friendly and has more of a community feel. Sharescope/Pad is more powerful in a number of respects, perhaps as it has been around for longer. Not being negative to either product as I think we are lucky to have both. Very impressed with what Stockopedia have achieved. But also very impressed by SharePad. Phil Oakley's articles highlight the power of SharePad and SCVR an interesting read on Stockopedia.

In my view, it is worth trying both to make an informed decision. But to repeat I am impressed with what Stockopedia has achieved since starting.

I arrived to see Ed’s talk on the main stage being cut short because things were running late through no fault of his. It left a bad taste. I thought it was no way to treat one of the main supporters of the event.
I don’t think I’ll go again unless there is more professional management on the day.

I did a double take at the SharePad stand too but would not write the product off on that basis. I’m a long term user and wouldn’t be without it or Stockopedia.

Taken from ADVFN. Rather strange, but Stockopedia should be aware.

I would have expected the lady to have had people skills too, else why put her on their stand at the show?

Her rudeness was beyond belief, I cannot believe someone on an exhibition stand would behave like that.

Sadly her behaviour reflects very badly on Stockopedia, who are her employer.

I'm not a third class citizen and won't be treated as such by anyone, and certainly not someone I am trying to purchase a product from.

I think Sharecope / Pad have more 'Power User' features - as they have been around longer and that (might) reflect their subscriber base
personally would like more 'power' features, but recognise that of 10,000 odd subscribers, I am probably one of a few hundred or less who want that and so can understand why investment goes on 'shiny'.

Always enjoy Eds talks and then two days later explain to myself why I know better than the Stocko stats (no, I don't)

On thing that would be good to have a couple of slides on next year's main stage
- profit warnings (covered in a smaller session iirc)
- when to sell - everyone talks about what to buy

​Hi Andy,

Adam from Stockopedia here. I'm really sorry to hear of your sub-par experience with us on Saturday. As Kenmitch points out, we strive to have the best customer service in the business and anything short of that is unacceptable.

I've sent you a quick private message with my contact details if you like to have a chat.

In my view Stockopedia had a fantastic event. Ed’s presentation in the main theater was brilliant. The stockopedia stand was excellent, with a fantastic location on the exhibitors floor.

I was surprised how many individuals put up their hand when Ed polled the audience during his main presentation as to who were subscribers, and the majority put their hand up. That is a fantastic achievement.

You could easily tell that the audience obviously had a lot of respect for Ed / the stockopedia team / the product. Very funny when Tom Winnifrith tried to get Ed to finish his presentation ahead of his allocated length of slot, and Ed stood his ground, with huge applause and support from the audience for Ed.

Excellent idea of allowing attendees to pickup a hard copy stockopedia report of all the companies exhibiting at the UK Investor Show.

Hopefully there were lots of attendees that have yet to take the plunge with Stockopedia, that since the show are trying it out for themselves.

I agree with all the above .For me personally was Graham Nearys near marathon presentation was the highlight .He must have been knackered after the presentation . He covered a vast amount of stocks going patiently and from one stock to another . The whole show is market driven by mining and allot of very poor companies.

Glad that my presentation was well-received. I had no idea that I was speaking for so long - just got on a roll! It was a fantastic exhibit so well done to the entire Stocko family for dreaming it up and creating it.
