About Me:

I have been an active private investor since the mid 1990s and while I have made healthy gains overall, I am the first to acknowledge that although having learnt much already, I still have plenty more to learn. I started the Share Knowledge blog in 2011 in order to share my research, commentary and investment ideas. Since then, the readership base has grown at a healthy rate and continues to do so. 

I am primarily interested in investing and commenting on growth companies. I try to avoid early stage growth or so called 'blue sky' stocks having been burnt on these too many times. These days my sweet spot is to focus on companies that are transitioning into or growing profitability. Typically, my investment time frame when I take a position in a share is 3-5 years and I try to take a strategic perspective, ignoring short-term price fluctuations, while ensuring that the investment case remains valid and risks are assessed. Additionally, I have begun building a high yield segment within my portfolio and envisage moving more in this direction as retirement approaches.




Blog

My Share Knowledge blog is where I diarise my ongoing attempts to ‘beat the stock market’. It is a never ending challenge of course because investing in shares is not a one way bet. In recent years my focus has shifted beyond individual share selection in favour of building a resilient, diversified portfolio that will outperform in bull and bear markets.I publish my portfolio holdings and weightings at least quarterly. The aim of this is not to beat my alpha male chest but rather, to share my learning and experiences with other private investors. The ensuing conversations on this site and Twitter help that learning process and hopefully it also provokes thought among both experienced and novice investors.
