Another new year - what will 2022 hold for us traders/investors?

14 Jan 2022 @ 21:41
I wish I knew! But it will be fascinating. Will covid be on the way out and lead to good times with pent up savings being used on holidays leading to higher share prices? Perhaps travel and airline companies will take off? Maybe Easyjet, IAG, and Jet2com will leap. Or will higher energy prices and […]
 

Why You Should Buy The Rumour, Sell The News

18 Nov 2021 @ 22:06
I was thinking about which question I get asked the most about investing. That got a little easier recently as we ask for questions in the “Naked Money” podcast. I reckon this one comes up all the time: “This company I hold issued a fantastic trading statement/results so how come it went down so much. […]
 

Be a Dragon to make money!

04 Aug 2021 @ 00:24
Before I buy a share I usually do my Dragon’s Den test. That is, I pretend to be a Peter Jones or a Deborah Meaden before I buy anything. I pretend the company is presenting itself to me. Would I buy into it if I was Peter or Deborah? If you’d like to know more […]
 

Invest in Lawyers

Although bitcoin and crypto is top of the headlines for valuation hikes, one surprising sector of the market is shooting up, mainly unnoticed by investors. That’s probably because this sector of the market does sound incredibly dull and dry – indeed if you could sum the sector up as a person – Keir Starmer. I […]
 

Will Moon Be a Pig?

23 Jan 2021 @ 01:09
There are lots of new issues coming out, some good some bad. I try and evaluate each one on a sensible valuation basis. So … to Moonpig. My guess is loads will buy this. Why? Cos it’s Moonpig! With the great ads! This is no reason to buy. People mailed me they had bought the […]

Bite Size Only Please

19 Aug 2020 @ 18:48
In recent years new tech has meant people who want to learn about the markets struggle. They find it hard to read books about trading. What they tell me they want are “bite size pieces” of learning. And they prefer to listen to the info rather than read. From my understanding this is mainly those […]
 

Coronavirus Bounceback Shares

12 May 2020 @ 20:26
This virus is certainly causing some companies to zoom higher. Particularly those that benefit from more people working from home. As I mentioned last time,  no share benefits more than ZOOM. The US company that we are all now using to chat to people or host meetings at home. So I did buy a few […]
 

A Lockdown Share

21 Apr 2020 @ 23:01
In this virus hit market there are a few shares that are benefitting. One was a fairly obvious buy given I had just bought its services. When I did a seminar at a hotel on march 9th I never knew that would be the last one I could do in a hotel for some time. […]
 

Try SpreadInvesting!

06 Feb 2020 @ 03:04
I’ve noticed when I do events that people are very interested in spread betting. But they are very scared when it comes to actually giving it a try. “Isn’t it like betting? They say. “I don’t want to bet, I want to invest.” And so investors in particular tend to shy away from it. I […]
