Dennis' Story

How did you go about finding investments before Stockopedia?

"Before subscribing to Stockopedia in November 2013 I selected my investments from reading reports in newspapers, journals, broker reports and by researching companies on the internet. While this gave me the background to a group of shares to chose from, there was still the problem of carrying out due diligence and proper fundamental analysis.

Then I found Stockopedia and life became so much easier and less time-consuming.

This was the time consuming and boring bit despite having a financial background. Then I found Stockopedia and life became so much easier and less time-consuming."

In what way has Stockopedia changed your approach to investing?

"Using the powerful stock screener I can find a wealth of investing ideas. I use the stock screens to research data in conjunction with my own data analysis - selecting investments for my various strategies associated with growth, value, momentum and quality.

I now analyse all stock tips using Stockopedia and the annual subscription has been repaid many times.

The many guru stock screens has saved me hours and hours of time finding out about the fundamentals of companies and calculating the data metrics. This takes stock picking to the next level with easy to understand StockReports, StockRanks and filtering stock screening tools. I now analyse all stock tips using Stockopedia and the annual subscription has been repaid many times.

It is now more value for money with the recent introduction of the chart interface which helps me to conduct technical analysis as well. Stockopedia has become a very powerful tool and easy to use for the novice DIY investor."

Thanks to Stockopedia, Dennis' outstanding returns have enabled him to travel to Australia every year to see his family.

Has this impacted your investment results and quality of life?

"Since subscribing to Stockopedia I am achieving a compound annual growth rate of 30% (capital growth and dividends) which compares with the FTSE 100 of 5.5% over the same timeline. My portfolio is up just over 100% over the last 4 years which has enabled me to travel to Australia each year to visit the family; thank you to the Stockopedia team for both the academic research (vastly improving my investing process) and also providing a forum where the investor community can communicate."

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

"To the novice investor it is important to firstly understand the investing process and get educated in the art of stock selection and building a diversified portfolio. Stockopedia supplies this forum. Secondly understand the risk involved and your own risk tolerance level (there is no gain without pain). Finally be patient and take a long term view of the market."
