About Me:

"Keep it simple and be patient" - my kind of thinking (because I said it)

Keen mountain biker, lover of Guinness and cider, part time investor planning for the future

Investment Strategy
I trade... a few times per year
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£10k

For the first half of my strategy I use a variation of Robbie Burns and Warren Buffett rules to find shares that will provide medium term growth (6 months to 2 years) and long term growth (10 years plus), with the aim to compound all profits to build a portfolio capable of sustaining  a respectable dividend at retirement (approx  yr 2045). The second half of my strategy is based on researching new growth companies with the aim of finding 2 or 3 that are at the start of a promising journey. These companies are generally held within my SIPP and I take the long view on them with very little dealing activity, unless limits are triggered.

That is exactly my thought...........I read somewhere that there could be an accounting error of up to 10%. Short term that worries me, however I can't help but feel from the figures that long term there are prospects for the company. The CEO and new CFO seem to have a good track record, but that is only my opinion. Best buckle up for an interesting…

Thanks for all your comments. Providing some food for thought for sure
