Investment Strategy
I trade... extremely rarely
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... a year
I invest with... <£50k
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
I invest by using several strategies: 1). Value investing; 2). Cash investing; 3). Theme investing; 4). Momentum investing; 5). Speculative investing (sometimes). I follow the above strategies after a did reasonable research and maybe try to time my purchases using basic techical analysis.

If you are a shareholder at ASOS, there is a chance you won’t like the analysis below. But it is better to offer a different perspective on ASOS. ASOS is Britain’s largest online retailer with sales coming in at £2.42bn, up from £1.92bn last year.  For ASOS, it isn’t surprising because it marks their "18th" year of sales growth (since 2000).  ASOS has been at…

It's another great year for homebuilder Bellway, as sales came in at £2,957m, marking nine years of growth.  During that period, it manages average sales growth of 17.65% p.a. with the latest sales growth below average of 15.6%. However, we must consider two things about Bellway: - 1). Homebuilders are cylindrical companies; 2). The company’s sales are at record levels. For Bellway, it is generating…

Bioventix was founded in 2003 as a biotechnology company specializing in the creation and supply of high-affinity sheep monoclonal antibodies (SMAs) for use in immunodiagnostics.  Current year sales came in at £8m (if you ignore backdated royalties of £0.8m), marking their eighth year of sales growth. Net profit came in at £5.7m, an increase of 15%, the growth rate won’t please shareholders because it’s a…

Background Kromek is a radiation detection technology company focusing on the medical, security and nuclear markets. The company has stated these markets have a combined value of $1.12bn (£800m) and their biggest division is nuclear detection which is valued at more than $1bn.   Trading Statement Management re-affirms that revenue and EBITDA will break even this year and is in-line with market expectations. They also state:…

Understanding the Seduction of Conviviality I have written about the warning signs on Conviviality in my previous post and talked about the speed of its collapse. Now, let us look at the other side of the argument. Why were investors getting sucked into this company?   Before it issued a profits warning, Conviviality share price rose by 230% in less than four years. Shareholders and financial…

As a shareholder of Optibiotix, Paul Scott should be entitled to his opinions. I disagree with Tom on this occasion. The business needs to print revenue to justify its current valuation. For me, the purchase is made on the basis of SOH's reputation and past business acumen. There will always be a risk of any investment, just recently Patisserie was found for reporting bogus numbers…

Sir Richard Branson strikes again with his "Daylight" robbery offer. Flybe management is either hiding the company's financial position or got bribe. The consortium will just sell the excess planes to fund the investment. Remind me of Gordon Gekko and Bluestar.

Patisserie Holdings should have done a Rights issue to involve existing shareholders at around 30 pence per share for another £25m or more. It would give existing shareholders the opportunity to participate in the company's recovery and its a way of saying sorry. That would initially shock the market at first, but if operations were to recover in two to three years' time, they should…

Thanks for the Debenhams analysis, Paul. I didn't know Debenhams stores were tied up in "decade-long" leases. My thoughts were some stores are seeing near the end of their lease and marked for closure. Personally, I thought the cash flow is okay unless we see the business deteriorates even more. Feel sorry for the shareholders, but even retail gurus like Mike Ashley made a huge…

I'm going against Graham's consensus on ASOS. I believe the competitive advantages that ASOS once had has changed. Article out tomorrow.
