Fantasy Fund: Beam me up Scotty

About Me:

I trained as an accountant with a Top 5 firm, but that was so boring that I spent too much time in the 1990s being a disco bunny, and busting moves on the dancefloor, and chilling out with mates back at either my house or theirs, and having a lot of fun!

Then spent 8 years as FD for a ladieswear retail chain called "Pilot", leaving on great terms in 2002 - having been a key player in growing the business 10 fold. If the truth be told, I partied pretty hard at the weekends too, so bank reconciliations on Monday mornings were more luck than judgement!! But they were always correct.

I got bored with that and decided to become a professional small caps investor in 2002. I made millions, but got too cocky, and lost the lot in 2008, due to excessive gearing. A miserable, wilderness period occurred from 2008-2012.

Since then, the sun has begun to shine again! I am now utterly briliant again, and immerse myself in small caps, and am a walking encyclopedia on the subject. I love writing a daily report for Stockopedia.com on most weekday mornings, constantly researching daily results & trading updates for small caps. Cheese!


Investment Strategy
I trade... weekly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I search for fundamental value in smaller caps, especially companies which are overlooked, or where price has become irrationally low due to negative sentiment. I like businesses with decent cashflow, strong balance sheets, and like dividends. I tend to hold for 6 months to 10 years, but a typical investment is 2-3 years. Special situations, and situations where the market has not yet priced in an improving commercial outlook for a company particularly interest me, as do turnarounds. But above all, shares which are cheap!
