How did you pick investments before you used Stockopedia?

Prior to using Stockopedia I was an extremely cautious investor. Nearly all my investments were restricted to the FTSE 100. Stocks were often selected by going through the top ten investments from leading investment trusts and selecting those that recurred regularly, partly through lack of detailed knowledge and partly as a result of lack of time.

Has using Stockopedia changed your approach to investing?

Since retiring and having much more disposable time I looked at better methods of researching, which brought me to Stockopedia. The result has been that I am far more willing to consider stocks with a much lower market capitalisation. I primarily invest for income but my perspective has changed somewhat and the dividing line between capital growth and dividend income is not so rigid as it was.

Has Stockopedia impacted your investment results or quality of life?

I think my results have improved a little although the events of the last 12 months have made that difficult to quantify!

With Stockopedia's info, screens, charts, and the Small Cap Value Report I have been much more successful. Most importantly, I am able to act swiftly to benefit from opportunities or to safeguard against problems with a particular stock or sector.

What's your advice for investors that are just starting out?

I think research is the key to successful investing. Finding the time and data to do this effectively is hard. Stockopedia is a large part of the answer for me.
