Occupation: Private Investor, Retired


About Me:

I am a keen & experienced investor. I love my spread sheets, and like to think that I know what I am doing. I wouldn't be offended to be described as a bit geeky. Mostly I do quite well, but I would like to do a lot better.

Married male. Born 1957 England. Good career in industry for 35 years.

Been successfully investing for about 30 years.

I chose to retire at age 57 to look after my investments.

I consider myself to be quite analytical / logical / mathematical, but also take into account how the world is likely to change & how people behave.

I always follow my processes before taking action. I am a great believer in continuous improvement and spend a great deal of time improving my processes.

Investment Strategy
I trade... monthly
I tend to buy... after much research

Diversification is ... essential to reduce risk
Buy and hold quality growth companies that will exceed market expectations.

How or where can I figure out what factors are driving the market recently? Eg exchange rates, risk on or off attitude, interest rates, political events, etc etc. I am not willing to pay for expensive subscriptions for this information.

I am 10% shares & 90% cash.  I am bottom fishing for quality growth shares at sensible prices.  Growth at a reasonable price is what I want.  The UK market is cheap at the moment but may well get cheaper yet.

Or how about this proposition:The proportion of fundamental analysis & technical analysis that one uses on ones selling decisions, should be the same  proportion as is used on one's buying decisions.In my case the buying decisions are mostly fundamental, with a little technical analysis.So when I consider selling, then it should also be based mostly on fundamentals, with a little technical analysis.  So as far…

Is it really just a case of:If you buy on fundamentals, then you should sell on fundamentalsIf you buy on technical analysis, then you should sell on technical analysisIf you buy on one and sell on the other, then you will suffer? 

HerbieYes indeed the book was based on the US market.
