About Me:

I'm a marketing guy who advises firms on go-to-market strategy, mostly in B2B and technology. I do this at my consultancy Where You Stand Ltd

For the last three years, I have also been investing in listed (mostly small caps, some main market) and unlisted companies (mostly tech start-ups). I sometimes day trade but the majority of my holdings are long-term.

In mid October 2018 I invited SCVR readers to participate in my annual Investor Sentiment survey. The organisers of Mello London also invited the attendees of Mello Chiswick to take part.  By mid November, 167 people had responded so I closed the poll and presented the findings at Mello Chiswick yesterday.  The survey seeks to understand private investor behaviour and feelings about the markets they…

Last year, I ran a survey to understand investor sentiment about the market, what they invested in and how much they were 'in cash'. That report can be found here A SCVR reader suggested this would be a good time to run this again and compare how people feel and how this influences their asset allocation today versus last year. So I've set up…

Yesterday I attended this event at the Business Design Centre, London and thought readers might be interested in knowing some of the presentation points. For those who have never attended, it's a "Shares" magazine event, sponsored by Cenkos and AJ Bell which brings together retail investors with small caps. More detail here Small Caps consistently outperform the main indicesIt is believed they will become…

It dawned on me a while ago that investors have no real idea as to the true relationship firms they invest in have with customers. Why did customers buy? Who else did they consider or also buy. What's the likelihood they will continue to buy/buy more/stop buying.  For instance, take IQE (LON:IQE) ( I don't hold). I read recently that one of their customers decided…

On the 14th December, I invited readers of the Small Cap Value Report and  to share their thoughts about the markets they invested in.119 filled in the online survey which asked questions about what markets they invested in, how much capital they had to invest, what proportion of this was in cash today (vs 6 and 12 months ago) and what their market outlook was…

Good bye Paul and Graham, thank you for your informative and insightful analysis. I've learn't a lot over the past three years and had a lorra laughs on the way. And I seem to have collected 7 gold medals, 2 silvers and four bronzes on the way for my research posts which shows that contributors can add value even when not subscribing. But all good…

Re: Superdry (LON:SDRY) They've already happened. Most of the board has gone today and the remaining four go in three months. Fast work EDIT And the two brokers have resigned too. 

HI CantabRe: Intercede (LON:IGP) SP: it broke through the key resistance of 24 pretty easily and doesn't seem to find 27 much of a barrier either. After that 32 (where it was last December) should get tested soon and certainly in the event of more positive news IMO. Cheers Francis

Re Intercede (LON:IGP) Many thanks Paul for the analysis. Worth noting that Finncap reiterate their target price of 80p which would be a £40m market cap. I can't find a 2020 broker forecast to see how realistic this is - do you know what it is? I hold (a rare piece of sunshine in my year so far!) Cheers Francis

£DX looks similar to SDI as well, with the 200MA and 100MA looking like they might cross soon and a cup beginning to form. Again, I'd welcome thoughts. cheers Francis
