I bought a few hundred DDD shares a couple of years ago and held on to them when they were taken off the AIM. I now hold them in a Fund & Share Account at Hargreaves Lansdown. The discussion at http://www.lse.co.uk/ShareChat.asp?ShareTicker=DDD&type=regular shows a current share price of around £0.02 while the share price here http://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/ddd is over $20 Why difference in pricing? How does this…

As a new investor, and ex electronics engineer, I was interested in Paul Scott's comments on XP Power (http://www.stockopedia.com/content/small-cap-value-report-tue-11-apr-2017-nxt-vcp-rfx-sepu-pam-tst-xpp-call-179526/) so checked them on Glassdoor (https://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Reviews/XP-Power-Reviews-E24805.htm).

The economy works on confidence, it can be talked up or down. For example, my holding in Tesco share has lost massive value but nothing has really changed at Tesco that I'm aware of. The constant doom and gloom about brexit is damaging. Change means opportunity.

Also sold my Boo Hoo shares today after they jumped and from reading Graham’s analysis. I’ve waited too long before selling in the past. Made a reasonable profit so not complaining:)

Dialight share price has spiked up today by about 6% at time of writing. A couple of years ago, having done some recent work for a major building contractor that was installing LED street lighting, I thought that would be an area worth investing in. But looking at the FT article here https://www.ft.com/content/3a05b8ea-f6e2-11e7-8715-e94187b3017e and employee reviews on Glassdoor https://www.glassdoor.co.uk/Reviews/Dialight-Reviews-E7797.htm it really does't look like a…

Fulham Shore was an expensive lesson for me not to take tips from anyone without doing sufficient research and understanding the market and it's social context. My shares dropped by 60% after I bought them two years ago while my ASOS shares doubled over same time - having a daughter in her twenties I understood the ASOS business model and demographic.
