Hi, What exactly is position in universe as appears in the stock report? I clicked on it which often gives a description, but it just gave market cap. I assumed it would roughly correspond with it's position in UK stocks by market cap (not exactly because of some aim stocks being of a size which would place them within the index) but it doesn't seem…

XP Power (LON:XPP) is a midcap sitting just below the FTSE250*It has a freefloat of over 80% yet the daily traded volumes are tiny, sometimes a couple of hundred shares, sometimes a couple of thousand.Here's a 3 month chart showing volume: what am I missing, why are volumes so low? The NMS of 100 also seems low.Doug*Stocko shows it as 533rd in universe, but on…

Somero Enterprises Inc (LON:SOM) Sounds very odd to me too. Very unlike a broker to say sell on a client. Is it just me or is the reply bit on stocko rubbish now?

I fall into the holding winners camp to really let them do their thing and compound over the years, but my conviction in this approach is not totally solid. On the whole I would say it's worked for me, and I've certainly regretted selling a few holding for a quick, small profit. But there's occasions when I've…

Following on from Timarr's comments do people think there's any merit in using publicly listed brokers so you can have a peek at their balance sheet a couple of times a year? Obviously this wouldn't help in an out and out fraud like Patisserie Holdings (LON:CAKE) but brokers like Hargreaves Lansdown (LON:HL.) IG Group (LON:IGG) and Jarvis Securities (LON:JIM) have published accounts which would be…

While I accept I could do more, and more of better quality, I am encouraged by numerous articles which seem to point to information overload and accuracy of decisions NOT improving with extra info. Both for this reason, and the pressures of reality I now console myself that's it's better to be roughly right than exactly wrong. So now if I'm looking at a company…
