Last week I had the great pleasure of hosting the latest Stockopedia StockSlam at Mello London. To my mind this made for a perfect pairing; a day of intense, captivating presentations followed by a more lighthearted hour of fun courtesy of other private investors. In addition I'm very aware that the previous StockSlams have all taken place in Central London and this understandably excludes many…

It's hard to believe that 2018 is almost over. Following a great 2017 this has turned into a very mixed year after such early promise. Having been burnt in October I believe that buyers remain cautious (myself included). Still this was all over-shadowed by the excellent two days that I spent at Mello London in Chiswick. Probably the best private investor event organised anywhere in…

Well I don't mind saying that this has been a shocker of a month. I can't remember such a destructive period for a number of years but such is the risk of being fully invested and not using hard stop-losses. It's not that I'm unaware of the use of stop-losses, and I do use alerts to pick up on sharp falls, but I've come to…

For our latest StockSlam event we decided to try a new and larger venue, wework at Aldwych House, but still in Central London. This gave us the space for an audience of around 75 with plenty of room for socialising afterwards - an essential requirement. Before kicking off I (couldn't help) noting the sharp correction in global stock markets, which has hit many of us…

It's been quite a gap since my last seminar, over the summer, and I've missed meeting some directors in the flesh. Fortunately this Autumnal get-together gave me the opportunity to meet "something old, something new, something with borrowings and something that investors hope will turn blue". Ahem, on with the report. Bioventix (BVXP) I last saw Peter Harrison, CEO of Bioventix, present 18 months ago…

Ha ha! The mini fashion show was definitely part of the live experience. All is not lost though as piworld filmed the event and perhaps some of this will make the final edit...

Thanks Tony. I too couldn't remember much about the pitches except that they seemed to go down well - too busy watching the clock! So I agree that having these notes is very useful for later reference. See you in 2019, Damian

Well I do have the names but not everyone who pitches a stock wants their name to be publicly visible. I'm not sure if there's an easy way to square the circle on this one without getting the presenters to sign some sort of waiver! Damian

You really don't have to look far for this information:

Thanks Tamzin. I saw AdEPT Technology (LON:ADT) live and previously watched the IG Design (LON:IGR) and Zoo Digital (LON:ZOO) presentations with great interest. Given how impossible it is for me to make these investor briefings you're providing an invaluable service with these videos. Sadly I didn't get to see Palace Capital (LON:PCA) at Mello so I'm looking forward to your recording with some anticipation!
