About Me:

Former corporate bond trader. 18 years in The City. Now trying to suppress the urge to trade and learning how to be a long term investor. Diversifying away from corporate bonds into equities.

Investment Strategy
I trade... weekly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
Aim to be long term and buy stocks with a durable competitive advantage, but prone to some short term trading after spending my career doing just that.

Formalities of the meeting were dealt with swiftly. Only noteworthy resolution was Resolution 10 - Disapplication of statutory pre-emption rights. This only just passed the 75%, threshold at 79.35%. After the meeting I, along with another investor, spoke with Peter Butterfield & David Cook, the chairman. I also spoke with Richard Jones, the Independent Non Exec. Much of the initial discussion was regarding Kelo-cote and…

Hi, I made notes at the Alliance Pharma (LON:APH) presentation and thought they may be of use to some holders who didn't attend: Peter Butterfield CEO 1st presentation seen. Thought he came across relatively well. Was a presentation of the basics of the company rather than going into great depth. • Noted 3 equity raises since 2010. Clear implication that there would be more raises…

Hello, This is the response I got from my IR contact at Somero Enterprises Inc (LON:SOM) when I asked what could be the possible cause for the delay in payment. I replied, that this kind of thing will impact sentiment and as such they should take it seriously. I have left her email on in case any other holders which to express their frustration. Regards…

Hi, I am in the process of researching a universe of names that qualify for Business Property Relief (BPR) on AIM and therefore will be inheritance tax (IHT) free after the two year holding period, for my father. My experience so far, is that IR departments are very cautious about confirming their status and will only ever confirm if they currently qualify. I can appreciate…

Hello, Anybody got any views on DCG? I bought into this some time ago and whilst it has done a job for me, I'm increasingly feeling like the recent rally is an opportunity to bank the gains and move on. My main fears are the net debt, div cover of just 1.04x, a ROCE which may have peaked, the possibility that the mineral whey product…

Hi, You also have to weigh into the calculation the longevity risk and the capital amount of the asset for which a return is implicit in the annuity pricing. Everyone knows those calculations are only best guesses. However, this need to best guess is the real risk and I do know how much work is put into that issue. As longevity is falling at the…

Re Sanderson (LON:SND) I had a long chat with the chairman and I do accept his logic for the sale. He was most engaging and generous with his time, He gave a number of reasons for his acceptance that this was a good offer, most notably the inclusion of the pension liability and there was a clear implication that he was very worried about a…

Hi Jwebster, Re Newriver Reit (LON:NRR) Enjoyed reading your thoughts on it, thanks. In response. Assets are only valued twice a year with the next one being 30th Sept. They use two independent valuers but I presume they get a good steer throughout the year. I did wonder if selling below book value of the sales was an indicator of possible valuation move, but I…

Hi Mojomogoz, Thanks for coming back. I think I have some clarity on those points that make sense to me but interesting to see whether they stand up to scrutiny: 1, The stated aim is growth both organically and acquisitively. Many dislike this model, but I have found them to be adept at it. The major purchase over recent years was a portfolio from Sinclair…
