Mervyn's Story

Before Stockopedia, how did you go about finding investments?

"Prior to Stockopedia I choose stocks after studying trading statements and the media. The companies that I chose must have a consistent improvement in performance, minimum debt and a P/E less than 20. Most importantly there must be a reason for future improvement in performance. I still use this criteria for 80% of my selections."

In what way has Stockopedia changed your approach to investing?

The Quality, Value and Momentum ranks really help me

"I use Stockopedia to help me identify stocks with a strong momentum that are either cheap or are good quality. The Quality, Value and Momentum ranks really help me with this. I look at the charts to identify those with higher highs and lower lows and use the Stockopedia data to study the company's fundamentals which saves me a lot of time."

Mervyn uses Stockopedia to improve his investment results with great success.

Has this impacted your investment results and/or quality of life?

"Using Stockopedia has improved my investment results. The average gain that I have achieved with stocks that I have invested in after using Stockopedia is 18%."

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

For new investors I would advise them to subscribe to Stockopedia

"For new investors I would advise them to subscribe to Stockopedia because of its educational content and the availability of the bulk of information required to make an investment decision.

Be sceptical of stock tips in the media and broker ratings. Take note of the media coverage but do your own research before making a decision. Be very cautious when investing in AIM. Don't invest too much in the beginning, there are a lot of lessons to be learnt which you will probably learn the hard way."
