About Me:

I used to work professionally on more technical trading. Now as a hobby and investment - looking at mostly UK small caps. So now strictly an amateur.

Investment Strategy
I like to understand the stocks I own well and sometimes do a lot of research. Still instinct is important - it at a minimum tells me which shares to research. My in-built bias is to buy cheap stocks (with known imperfections - or stocks with "hair") than stocks priced close to perfection.

Earlier this year, I stumbled across Titon Holdings (LON:TON), an illiquid family controlled micro-cap which looks conservatively managed, with most profits coming from Korea and in recent years has shown impressive top line and EPS growth.   In addition, it has a  2.5% dividend yield and the dividend is very well covered by earnings and dividends have increased steadily over recent years.    However, a slightly more…

I like the valuation of Spaceandpeople (LON:SAL) - but as you state liquidity is dire. As for Germany, the company said in September that the continuation of its 2 German divisions depended on the successful renegotiation of its German contracts, which were due to end in January 2018. Since then no news -and today would have seemed a good opportunity to update the market. (So…

Lavinit That is a good point but I don't think that the customer can be B&M - as B&M would be classified as a UK retailer. UP Global Sourcing Holdings (LON:UPGS) is clear that the customer is a European customer and for UP Global Sourcing the UK and Europe are two different things (at least when it comes to customer definition). I understand that the…

Qigomi Sing Agree cash is important. Net debt at end Sept 2017 was £230,000 up from £40,000 the year earlier despite the strong profit as cash was used in building up working capital. In addition, £800,000 will be allocated to double manufacturing capacity upto 2020. In addition to the good points made by other readers, maybe worth also pointing out: 1) the challenge of manufacturing…

I agree that the CFO does not need to be a qualified accountant. Interestingly, at Staffline (LON:STAF) , which for a small cap gets its numbers out really quickly, the CFO for the last two years, Chris Pullen (last week promoted to CEO) left school at 18 and joined the army - got an MBA (I think) but had no formal accountancy qualification. Pullen’s replacement…

I hold Redstoneconnect (LON:REDS) , probably for similar reasons to you (and others): low P/E, well positioned in the “smart buildings space - which intuitively feels like a solid area for growth, the Connect IB acquisition and the movement into software (One Space) and less emphasis on contracting looks promising and the senior management disarray prior to Mark Braund’s appointment as CEO (Jan 2016) would…
