About Me:

My Stockopedia screen name is a reference to the 1969 Monty Python sketch about a disillusioned charted accountant who wanted to become a lion tamer. I suspect many of us have had moments like this. Such moments were my motivation to take control and retire early. This is something I was able to do in 2016, when I quit my job. Since then I've been living from the proceeds of my investments, most of which are stock based.

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£1m
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
When I walk down the street, my aim is to avoid stepping in any dog-mess. My investing strategy is the same.

By moving your mouse over the dots you can read many of the other companies invested and see the weighting. It might help to zoom-in with your browser ("ctl" "+" keys at the same time, "ctl" "0" to reset) I…

XP Power (LON:XPP)This part of the update... The book to bill ratio, which tracks the relationship between orders received and completed sales, and which is an indicator of future revenue growth, was 1.16 for the first quarter (2018: 1.10 times) ...suggested to me that the the reduction in first quarter like-for-like, constant-currency drop might be just noise that could well be corrected by the end…
