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…

Smartspace Software (LON:SMRT) is an interesting company, which I used to own but sold out earlier this year on its delayed FY18 earnings report (which was delayed for the finally sensible reason it was selling its dominant Redstone business). The pluses for the business are: 1) its attractive valuation when the cash is stripped out); 2) its flexible workspace software seems in an attractive market…

On a different level altogether than Tesla, but it seems to me more companies are issuing “corrections” to their RNS - just seemingly due to sloppiness, poor proof reading. I notice today than Dillistone (LON:DSG) has come out with a replacement to its first half earnings report due to an error on its retained earnings line. I also notice that the RNS forShoe Zone (LON:SHOE)…

I have sold out of my position in BON today - agreeing with many of the negative points raised above. In addition, I did not like the repeated emphasis in the statement about the positive trend on online sales. While important, it is still a few years away before his is big enough to really move the needle. It is the decline in physical stores…

I held Michelmersh Brick Holdings (LON:MBH) until about a year ago. So my knowledge is a bit out of date, as now I only have a passing interest in the stock. On the development land potential, there was a note from Cenkos, in October 2016, which said that there was £12 million of land with redevelopment potential on the balance sheet. This was before the…

I looked at Leeds (LON:LDSG) a couple of years ago - what put me off buying was I struggled to see any sign that the board has a motivation to increase the share price. The shares are so cheap (compared to NAV) that there is little likelihood, that they could ever be used as a currency for an acquisition. The company does not seem to…
