About Me:

Work in ecommerce across marketing, product and partnerships, with a background in technology start ups. Very curious and combine this with my sector insights to focus on areas and companies to invest.

Been a long time investment lurker and knowledge builder, but over last 3 years been managing SIPPs and ISAs for myself and family.

Learning lots (esp understanding balance sheets and bottom up valuation), am performing well, but much more to learn and refine with my approach :0)


Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£1m
Diversification is ... important, but not beyond 10 positions
Small caps and growth with a focus on quality and momentum. Identify companies with an unfair advantage, but that meet key financial metrics to minimise downside risk. Hold 15 or less shares in a concentrated portfolio so i invest in my best ideas. Strict rules to manage entry position Focus on investing more in the winners as they grow Plan to hold indefinitely unless simple rules to sell are triggered (e.g.profit warnings) Like to keep things simple!!

You may ask why there are pages below are not talking just about Versarien and their financials. It’s because it is impossible to understand the graphene opportunity unless you understand the ecosystem that they operate in. There is also a lot of “connecting of dots” which helps to paint the picture of the progress Versarien have made and the opportunities that lie ahead of them.…

For those interested I’ve done a series of tweets on my views of Versarien (LON:VRS) preliminary full year results starting here https://twitter.com/mikewbrenner/status/1019834883462582272?s=21

I'm in the Hallmark Midland hotel just down the road from the Stuart / Bestwestern and looking forward to meeting folks. Arrive Wednesday evening and leaving Friday afternoon. Mike

I think that the CEO must be confident in doing so if he is going to the largest emerging technology conference in the world and presenting the following on 11 - 12 Apr 2018: Solving The Graphene Scale-Up Problem Presentation Summary With graphene enhanced materials demonstrating significant benefits, the current challenge is to scale up production volumes to meet anticipated demand. In the 2 years…

Thanks for the reply Nigel - can you share what in particular from your digging around and from Tim’s research that makes you think what the company is saying isn’t real or would affect the investment / valuation?

Thanks Nigel, hope you found the research interesting.On the valuation side, I happen to agree with you, Tim Kempster and Wshak that based on the Versarien interims and announced revenues and losses up to 30th September 2017 then their market cap of £160m today is overvalued. However since then we have seen some very material newsflow that indicates that Versarien has moved its graphene out…
