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…

Re Plus500 (LON:PLUS) There's a report in the TImes today about misleading investors in 2017 about client losses, according to the BBC news website. cheers Francis

Hi Paul, I'd like to add my thanks to you (and Graham) for your daily report. And personally I find this a 'safe' place for debate and learning, unlike the 'shouty' ramper/deramper communities elsewhere - long may that continue. What I have observed over the last few years is that whenever 'noisy' stocks are debated here (those with rabid followers on other BBS's) it seems…

Re: Downvotes I think your post is disingenuous. You make it sound like there is some sort of weird cult culture here. I think the reasons JLHammo got so many downvotes are more prosaic. Firstly, he didn't put the £sign before the stock name he/she was commenting upon which is annoying to all readers here Secondly, he makes no other observation about the Water Intelligence…

Re GAME Digital (LON:GMD) (I hold) The trading update reveals no information about BELONG revenues which is frustrating. I suspect the rollout is going slower than they hoped which is why no figures are published. But the other important news today is that they lost the vote to delist on the main market and list on AIM. This and the cash balances worth 33p per…

Hi Sparkler,I don't understand your post at all. The SCVR is a place of learning where Paul, Graham and a diverse group of contributors share knowledge and opinions about stocks that help us all become better investors. You end your post come on let’s do better in these tougher market conditions.Why the plural? Each one of us takes their own decisions based on our…
