With some talk about recession at the moment I thinking of doing a portfolio of 20 shares and see how it performs. Any suggestions for shares to include would be welcome. My choices so far are: H & T (LON:HAT), National Grid (LON:NG.), Poundland (LON:PLND), Dee Valley (LON:DVWA), Fyffes (LON:FFY), McBride (LON:MCB), Novae (LON:NVA), Charles Taylor (LON:CTR), Fairpoint (LON:FRP), SkyePharma (LON:SKP), GlaxoSmithKline (LON:GSK), Begbies Traynor…

Anyone picked up any bargain shares in the sales? I have bought: Trakm8 Holdings (LON:TRAK), John Wood (LON:WG.) Next (LON:NXT)

I noticed at close on Friday 2 of the shares on my watchlist had closed well down. When I looked into the sp more I noticed there were both very similar, selling before close but then both had a large buy at 16.35pm, now this buy price was well below the selling price during the day. As it was a buy then the close price…

I'm considering investing in gold but not sure of the best way to do it. I don't want to have the actual gold in my possession. Can anyone advise the best ways to invest? I have come across Gold Bullion Securities which I may be able to hold in my ISA, anyone invested in them?

It does not always work, if it has a number in the ticker that seems to stop it, such as £G4M, but it does usually work although I find putting a . after often helps. Forterra (LON:FORT) and Forterra (LON:FORT). I don't use a Mac though. 

Things not looking good at Interserve (LON:IRV), this company has really fallen from grace in the last 2 years and is very much a small company now.

Usa shares will have 15% deducted if you have completed a withholding tax form, if not it will be 30%. The only exception I believe is for shares held in a SIPP. It is a problem with US and Canadian shares. I do hold AT&T which pays about 6% dividend and seems pretty reliable. Am looking more to European shares which avoids the tax problem.

Allagents had very few reviews but I have seen the negative reviews being quoted by a number of reports so I can see why Purplebricks (LON:PURP) wanted to do something about it. It would be easy for rival agents to do reviews on there, not so easy to adversely effect the review score if there were 1000s of reviews. Allagents site has been criticised before…
