About Me:

I'm a private investor working within the fund management industry looking for opportunities across all sectors and with any duration with the ambition of growing my ISA, SIPP and other non-sheltered investments.  I tend towards small caps as I find markets are less efficient the less coverage a stock receives - and small caps don't receive as much institutional and analyst coverage.  I find the exchange of views on Stockopedia with other investors a great way of assessing the intellectual rigour (or otherwise!) of my stock-specific ideas and future investment themes to play.

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
Typically small-cap growth stocks, with a foray into oilies, resources, special sits occasionally and the odd short...

Judging by some earlier threads on the site there would appear to be a great interest in finding AIM-listed companies to put into UK residents' Individual Savings Accounts. As we know only too well it is only those stocks currently with a dual-listing overseas that are eligible for inclusion in ISAs, legislation which therefore restricts investor choice as well as blocking a source of…

Almost a year on from floating Vallar (LON:VAA), Nat Rothschild is teaming up with Tony Hayward of BP fame to raise £1bn in a new oil and gas asset acquisition vehicle, imaginatively called Vallares.  This morning's announcement indicates that Vallares will adopt the same proven model used by Vallar last year when it raised £707m then acquired interests in Indonesian coal producers, Bumi plc and…

Paul, Maybe this is what you need for when you are running low on items? Amazon Dash. Not sure there is a beer button yet though...

Mark, I also bought into Helphire early before the recovery started, after Paul highlighted it on his first StockReport webinar around June 2013 (cheers, Paul!). Looking back I see I bought a nice chunk of these in my SIPP on 27-Jun-13 at 3.65p (36.5p post-consolidation).Like you, I agonised (probably on a weekly basis) on when or if to sell these as they kept going up,…

Indeed, many companies including those from overseas come to tap AIM investors in an initial fundraising. Here's the latest list from the LSE:

"I guarantee to buy shares in the first company which uses the phrase "slightly below" instead of "broadly in line", as I think that would demonstrate refreshing clarity and openness."Hi Paul, more firms than you might imagine use the 'slightly below' wording in their updates - see the link... such mention I notice was Mitie (LON:MTO) in its 31-March Pre-close trading update - attendees…
