Real Name: Ken Lowes

About Me:

Retired 2003 having created and run Lowes Financial Management since 1971. We specialised primarily in collective investments and taxation for the retired investor.

We are as a I write in a critical phase of this market. Is it the end of the Bear or just a correction? I owe it to those who have read my last piece The Real Truth about Bear Markets to set out my current thinking. I am in doubt again as we are at a turning point todays date is 19th Feb 2019.…

This is excellent news for the construction industry but as I have been a contributor to this site for four years, I am going to be upfront with you right from the start. The above statement is true but not without your help, no not money just a few minutes of your time. You will all appreciate that if we build three million homes it…

The 1973 Bear started on the 4th May 1972 and reached the bottom on 6th December 1974, some would say the bear lasted 30 months. But that isn’t the way I experienced it or any other bear market since. At the bottom the investor was sitting on a 75% loss which took a further 32 months to recover and only then if they were nimble.…

It might be me but all the contact buttons seem to be disabled on the site and I would like to ask a question of the advice team. If anyone else can help it would be appreciated. Question:  If you want to screen out high volatility what integer would you use? The glossary says it is screenable with 0 highest and 100 lowest but having…

Having been out of the market since October 2017, as mentioned here at the time, it is obvious that I am a cautious investor, which perhaps comes from my many years building a financial services company. I am not ready to buy back in yet, but I have been preparing the way and looking at companies that I believe may make good investments. Plus 500…

I really like the site as it allows me to play around with investment ideas based on yesterday, but therein is the problem, yesterday. The first two shares i ever bought upon subscribing in 2014 lost 100% in the one and 50% in the other they were after all ranked at 99/100 so why would i expect such an outcome. Now i have my own…

There is a MM Trend Template on Sharepad which is showing 75 qualifiers, 13 of which might be worth looking at, and in my opinion the following are worthy of serious consideration. ABDP CHH TUNE FUTR KNOS KEYS TMMG. Personally the only one I would invest in is ABDP, but I won’t be doing that because one of the first rules of Minervini is “…

Perhaps you should work out the growth rate that this company needs to achieve and ask yourself what are the chances? Then sell put the money where you think there is a better chance of seeing a profit sooner rather than later. Would you buy this share today knowing what you now know if the answer is yes stick with it. But as I said…

Was that the Harry Lime Theme? I can understand your views but as a further thought have you considered ETF's a very informative book might help "The Ultimate ETF Guidebook" . Not as a substitute to investment trusts but as a part of the portfolio. Cheap to buy, no stamp duty and liquid. Try here

I never realised that non-subscribers were on the site- I did realise that some who pontificate about certain strategies such as Minervini haven’t even bought the book so it would be a good thing to get rid of anyone who either is unwilling to pay, obviously an investor in their own Dreamtime or can’t afford it.
