I notice ii offer a "Bed & ISA" service, where you can sell shares in your dealing account and buy them back straight away in the ISA, for one dealing fee. However, this is still subject to the bid-offer spread. Now whilst I believe we are not allowed to do an in-specie transfer, surely all the shares are held in the broker account, as they…

We're updating the Terms of Service. (extract from e-mail)  "Investments older than six yearsIf there has been no movement for a period of at least six years on some or all of your investments we may gift a cash amount to a charity of our choice. We may also release any stock where there has been no movement for a period of at least twelve…

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…

"Some of the rules that Jack has kindly listed for us apply to investors as well as speculators. Rule 4 - get rid of losers and persist with winners (even investors buy the wrong share sometimes and need to recognise the mistake and get out) Rule 5 - never average losses Rule 6 -- focus on a few shares not many Rule 7 - analyse…

I'm an investor, not a trader & the two are different. For example, I would reverse rule 10 and I try not to let investment turn into speculation, mainly because I am no George Soros (not enough talent). With a long term mindset, I struggled to get anything out of Jesse Livermore's book and have not yet finished it. I have been though approximately 60…

Many software companies have updates which try to get you to install other software. For example, every time I upgrade Flash player, I need to make sure boxes are unticked so nothing else gets installed. This problem is not specific to Avast (LON:AVST), although they are among the many guilty software companies. All the pop ups and other irritations can easily be turned off, so…

Who says this is not a great tipping service ? At £150 for a break to Munich, I shall pay more attention to BA city break offers. Thanks Paul.RWS Holdings (LON:RWS): They have done well in more than recent years. Stockopedia shows the share price as 5.87p back in July 2003, now 561p. A 95 bagger. [The Stockopedia graph appears to be correctly adjusted for…

Learning Technologies (LON:LTG) seem to have acquired another "Talent Acquisition" software company, so LTG clearly intend to grow both in training AND recruitment. I suppose there may be synergies on the sales side, when HR departments tend to mange both functions. There seems to be quite a lot of competition in the Talent Acquisition field: I don't yet understand why LTG has responded so…
