Haphazardly without much systematic thought. Because of my lack of financial knowledge and how to read a balance sheet, I tended to rely on others’ analysis of stocks too much.
I am still a bit haphazard and still follow other investors that are generous with their analysis - e.g. Paul Scott (via Stockopedia's daily Small Cap Value Report), Leon Boros, and Lord Lee. But I definitely make more informed decisions than I used to before Stockopedia.
Stockopedia helps me easily understand whether a company makes a profit. This is my only solid, almost unbreakable rule. It has helped me to avoid many losses. I can also easily assess free cashflow and ROCE, my next two favourite measures.

I am 54 and have now gone part-time at work thanks to my investing success. I don’t feel fully confident enough to give up work fully yet, and my partner works part time as well. But my investments mean we can help our 3 children out, live a comfortable life and not have any financial worries at all.
Stockopedia is the perfect solution for the time-poor individual investor looking for results
