About Me:

I have been running my ski holiday business (Purple Ski) for 27 years which I started with £3.57 in the bank and sold in June 2018 for a mid-six figure sum, which for me shows that a buy and hold philosophy can work! I split my time between Meribel and Buckinghamshire.

Investment Strategy
I trade... a few times per year
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£1m
Diversification is ... important, but not beyond 10 positions

Still learning and have been reading voraciously for the past two or three years to educate myself but still feel I have a long way to go. However I am a definite fan of Warren Buffet and think that his philosophy is the right one but have recently become enthusiatic about Slater's Zulu principle.

Diversification is important but not beyond 15 to 20 positions

Hi Robinson "It's hard to get any enthusiasm with regard to this company..." Which company please? Thx

Thank you Graham for taking the time to put this down. Number 3 had occurred to me but then again I doubt we are anywhere near peek warehouse :-) and I would have thought that there may be other areas where ultr-flat surfaces are required that they might move into? On China more progress would have been/would be nice but at a 12 PE it…

On Somero Enterprises Inc (LON:SOM) this my fifth largest holding and fourth biggest gainer (I started buying in 2015). And personally missed a trick in not picking up some more in late December in the sell off but my process is not yet very good on picking up on this sort of thing. There is a risk that I might have fallen in love with…
