Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research
I hold for... years
I invest with... <£50k
Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
I am a "dividend farmer", content to hold shares in companies that yield reliably and by reinvesting I aim to create a significant pot within an ISA for future income, should I need it. I sleep soundly, as a man with an already sizeable orchard who has unlimited land on which to plant more fruit trees as every harvest comes in and who enjoys watching the fruit ripen and the sight of the orchard growing ever faster as years go by. I am not concerned to sell unless a tree fails to give fruit but I do prune cleverly and I hold enough varieties to offset inevitable short-term climate variations.There is no room for greed, impatience, stupidity, laziness or neurosis on this farm but holidays are a must.

Can anyone enlighten me why today's response to what I read as a moderately positive announcement by Crest Nicholson Holdings (LON:CRST) was more than 12% fall in price? What have I missed?

I find myself in that awkward situation of being unsure what to do about Galliford Try (LON:GFRD) rights offer. I have always liked the company and have been a long holder in a modest sort of way. The entire sector has taken something of a beating recently, worsened by Carrillion's disgraceful behaviour and coloured no doubt by doubts as to the wisdom and final outcome…

My portfolio as overly subscribed to builders and they had all risen very well. October was approaching and it looked as if there might be at the very least, a cooling of enthusiasm. There was talk of house prices going down, Polish tradesmen going home and a general air of Brexit doom and gloom. Accordingly, I severely reduced my holding in builders, banking a very…

Has anyone a clue as to why Epwin's price has changed its general pattern of up two and back one, then steadily subsided over the last few weeks and fell significantly today? There are no news items, it went XD in May and I cannot find anything in any search to see why. Is this in sympathy with SFE or vice versa? Have double glazing…

I was taking some interest in LON:WPP but noticed it entered the Altman Z screen in June 2015. What was most striking is to compare the notion that a company that matched the criteria set out by Altman in 1968 being 72% likely to fold in the next two years against the chart of actual performance over the last two years. It made me wonder…

I decided a year ago that it would be prudent to take a small holding in this area and did the very same comparison exercise. Unable to decide between them, I elected to split my investment between the two. As it stands today, £HAT is 3.5% down and £RFX is almost back to even but dividends mean that the initial investment has netted 1%. It…

I'd sign that petition too but even more than that, I'm keen to know who likes it, how many of them are there out there and why do they like it? Oddly ties in with Brexit somehow.

The strategy I favour is to select stocks that have always paid a reasonable div and make money whatever anyone thinks of their value and hold them while they continue to perform that way. I am not clever nor lucky as a trader so rely on being a farmer since I have no need to sell any stock at any time.That's not to say I…

Charts are fascinating but who knew that, given the national obsession with London and the South east, it could be possible to get away with high fares for hordes of commuters to central London once the roads became gridlocked?

I suppose the share price was up with these expected results already factored in.
