About Me:

700 club gold member. Anniversary yesterday 1/10/2013. Recently returned from New York with a wish to see Wall Street for myself as a bit of a satisfying accomplishment. I first got interested in investments when I was a financial advisor for 14 years. I learned a lot & went to quite a few investment seminars. The one I remember particularly was with Fidelity. They visited the companies that they invested in and held them for a long duration in their portfolios. The other thing was with different currencies that they could buy a particular stock with and of course sell it if it was favourable with another currency. This was potentially more risky of course. It was not long before I realised that all the money from the insurance premiums had to be invested and who was doing it. We used to sell investment bonds where 5% was allowed to be taken tax free once a year on the anniversary of the policy which could run for 20 years.There was a choice of Managed, Property, or Equity to invest into. It was at this point of time that the Property fund went up 40% in less than a year. A simple comparison with the Managed and Equity funds showed the difference. I was soon taking a keen interest in unit trusts and shares, looking for things that were going up and the highest that they had been and bought them. I bought a software package with Up-data which enabled me to be much more efficient, putting stop losses in. Drummed into my head was cut your losses and sell when a stock breached the stop loss and let the profits run. Another stepping stone was to buy myself a Rolls Royce silver shadow that was chestnut brown in colour. The reasons were threefold. 1. That I could afford it. 2. The two managers for the insurance company that I was working for were called Douglas & Rolls. 3. I was still single. As well as doing the insurance business I joined an investment club in Basingstoke and became their chairman. We closed it this year sadly because of ill health with some of the members. Now I have a portfolio that I am able to take out (if & when I want to some cash) just like the insurance bonds but much more flexible. I enjoy the technology stocks and have taken profits several times from Arm Holdings which is the only share that I have held for many years now. Having just got this Stockopedia yesterday (first saw it at an investment seminar in London earlier this year) when I noticed Dart Group (DTG) so that is now in my portfolio too. I suppose you could say I am an analyst & a chartist. It was good to see my portfolio already has Globo, , Blinks, Clingen ,Dart, Wanddisco, opay,Easyjet ,LLoyds Arm Telicom Plus(which has doubled and a bit more but then started to drop so I have just sold almost half and re invested the proceeds into ASOS.) In conclusion I hold about 20 shares, and have just INCREASED my holdings in Globo about two weeks ago, and noticed someone has reduced their holding with Globo to 3%.I hope they are not still holding the poor pawnbroker shares (guess who) -40% in one day followed by further catastrophic drop. A good case for a stoploss . Join the 700 club and put some money to work I say.

Investment Strategy
I trade... constantly
I tend to buy... according to my system
I hold for... a few months
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
Look for good profits,100% growth per year with increase from 1 week 1monthmust be higher% so must 3months & 6months.Share must be as high as it has been & still going up.Volitility minimal. I also check for 5 years If I can.

This Johannesburg mining company has hit 2 of my screens. First screen is at least 30% up in the last 30 days.The 2nd screen shows at least 100% up over the last year. This is, as you can see, is a speculative high flyer. Stock Rank 58,Quality 63,Momentum 93 and has 1 screen 52 week high. There is a lot of interest in this share…

This has come into my "radar" with a dividend payment of 58p. This of course means that the share price tomorrow will go down by 58p and the share price will be around 80p or so. Having said that the share has hit an all time high, with tha main increase over the last 3 or 4 months. There is plenty of cash.The question is…

The name says it all. Not much information on this share except it has about 11M trades so far today and it is heading in the right direction. It is in the right place in the city. Now about 11.8M trades. Worth a punt or put into a watch list? In the sector of investment banking. Up 30% today at the time of writing .

A surprising result today considering that Plus 500 is XD today and usually the share price drops.The reverse happens finishing up 7.4% at 823.5p when the general market was down. Morgan Stanley bought some more shares today. Still massively undervalued. Hopefully the trend is at last beginning to reverse direction.Stockrank still remains at 89 with 10 screens remaining in tact.From dividend data.com.UK the actual dividend…

Stockrank now showing 89.and still showing 10 screens. Why ate the 10 screens showing still holding? Odey topping up with yet more shares today, whilst the directors have increased their 3rd trench of 50k's worth of shares before it goes XD tomorrow 21/2/18. Valuation from Vectorvest is showing the highest percentage difference from the share price inn as long as I can remember at 2224p…

I agree Herbie. Today Odey however, has increased it;s stake in he company and now holds 25% of Plus 500 shares, which is huge holding for them now. More bad press from The Times today, which has had an impact on the share price plummeting again. The forward dividend yield now has increased to 14.4%. Stockrank 94 with 9 screens and counting.

Directors have just bought a trench of 50,000 shares. Stockrank now 94. Share price 1086p. with 9 screens.

Stockrank is still showing 99 with now 10 screens. .Odey has just bought another 13M shares, which shows there is still an interest in buying in spite of a falling knife red light and huge selling of the directors last year.Because of the fall of the share price, the forward dividend has increased to 13.3% yield.The forecast revenues.do show that 2019 could be below 2018…
