About Me:

Investment Strategy

Research the company and management as far as possible and then go for it - if you regard the risk as acceptable. Keep an eye on it and be prepared to admit defeat if you got it wrong. Try to keep a sensible stop-loss policy. But don't sell out if the stop-loss is breached and you still have faith in the stock.

The DT are supposedly merely reporting the facts but these seem to me to be a bit "variable"! I expect Greece to default eventually as I doubt the population there will accept the…

DT are now saying that, after all, the requisite 90-95% threshold of creditor acceptances was achieved

According to today's Daily Telegraph [Business News] Greece needs 95% of its creditors to back the proposed bond swap. The deadline is 8 pm tonight and the DT this morning reckoned that only 40.8%of Greece's creditors were in agreement so far. This enormous shorfall seems hardly likley to become 95% this evening. Analysts were reported [again by the DT today] to expect that Greece will…
