Hamish's Story

How did you pick investments before you used Stockopedia?

"Before using Stockopedia I relied on 'hot tips' in magazines and occasional tips from friends."

Has using Stockopedia changed your approach to investing?

"Stockopedia has allowed me to approach investing from an informed basis. Data that I would not have been aware of or understood is easily interpreted through your charts and StockRanks. I can also use your numerous screens to adopt particular strategies and style of investing and to find companies in special sectors."

Has Stockopedia impacted your investment results or quality of life?

"As a consequence my returns are much better and my investments safer. In short, I now have a method!"

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

"My advice, based on my methods, is to play safe mostly - but allow a bit of money for more adventurous bids. Be prepared to lose all of it, but it adds a bit of fun and sometimes pays off.

I also use a home-made spreadsheet to do 'value averaging'. This can be done just by investing a set amount at regular intervals, or by topping up your investment to a given value each time. Provided the value of your shares fluctuates, this method will, given time, reduce the average cost per share bought and increase the number of shares owned - thereby increasing dividends."
