Here is a list of Mello London exhibitors, although without any guarantee of accuracy.  I figured there are so many good presentations plus all the companies, a little bit of advance research is needed in order to figure out which ones to see.  The list below is the start of it. 

Thank you Graham, for giving very perceptive stand up commentary on umpteen shares on the Stockopedia stand at the UK Investor show today. Impressive stamina too. Also, the Stockopedia stand was one of the better presented. In comparison, I walked past the stand of a direct rival & thought my eyesight must be really crocked, but no, they really did have fuzzy unreadable text on…

Does anyone know of a low cost fixed fee financial advisor for a pension transfer ? That is from frozen Defined Benefit (DB) scheme to a SIPP. A colleague of mine is having problems finding one. Considering the same principles apply for most customers, charging 3% of the fund to provide variations on generic advice seems like another financial services racket. I had experience of…

The Master Investor show 2018 is on Saturday, in north London. I have the free ticket, which is just as well, since the Jim Mellon talk is cut to 30 minutes and subject to an additional £25 fee on top of the entry fee. His 2016 talk was quite interesting, but the 2017 talk had very little overlap to my circle of competence (or truthfully,…

I have long thought Ryan Air were OK, but they lost my goodwill last year when their website was trying to charge about £32 for my carry on bag which met their previous size spec and always fitted under the seat.

Purplebricks is not going to derive any significant benefit from a network effect, as all the buyers will search via Rightmove. So any number of small scale competitors could do what Purple Bricks are offering. I have seen adverts for what seems to be a similar service. So I don't see why Purple Bricks would spend so much on advertising. The management of critical reviews…

They cancelled the A380, not the A320/321. The A320 range will carry on selling quickly as long as it only has to compete with the 737. However, 2 prototypes of the Comac C919 are flying. If this goes into service on schedule in 2021, this sector is no longer a 2 horse race.

I remain sceptical due to what was once described as the prune juice effect.

Greggs (LON:GRG)Another one I sold too soon. Purchased a few years back for slightly over £4. Sold within a couple of years for just short of £8. Although, I really wouldn't expect this to ever be on a PE of ~23 & PEG of 3.5.
