Investment Strategy
I trade... constantly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... a few months
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
pick winners, and back them. I guess I am GARP at heart. I prefer companies that do or make things rather than 'consultants' or financial businesses. And I like 'moats'.


Writings on aviation, miltary and international affairs. Reviews of books on the same subjects.

One of Scotty's longs I believe, +>10% yesterday, the day before a trading statement (and +13% today after it). A bit sniffy!

Oh dear, Diane Abbott is on BBCQT this evening. I fear for Paul's blood pressure!

Re Craw, "a bargepole jobbie" - love it! I presume that is in the Billy Connolly sense of the word - i.e. something brown and steaming!

Request for LON:OPM please. AGM statment confirms in-line (strong) trading, and shares off 7.5%. Eq Devs say "A good company whose shares have been hit too hard by market falls."

Important thing re AIR is that the market, I think, was fearing a large restatement of the accounts after the announcement of an accounting review and delay to their publication. That does not seem to have been necessary.

"Unprecedented peace" - I wish our politicians would remember that the next time they want to take an axe to defence spending. We are now woefully under-resourced in that area....
