Added me some $PHUN, $KALA & $GEVO decent prices still and I think they’ll easily double. Was going to add some $CLOV but after seeing there expletive tirade I’ll hold off for now. Will probably look to add some $HYLN soon as that’s a decent price still and electric is the way forward.
Damn it. I thought this was going to be a tricky one but you got it! The correct answer is indeed D.
Pretty sure you can make a behavoural research topic out of this…“Is the retail investor community wisdom beating the market?”
May be an area to cover in either Honey or the longer Insight pieces @sampoullain
Needless to say, when pies eventually become available, we need to have this portfolio as one of the default options!
The way oil has dived due to covid i think that if it all goes back to normal and oil goes up again due to planes flying, more cars on the road etc that £BP will be close to doubling.
$KNB newcomer Kanabo Group looks to me like a really nice stock for 2021. Kicked off straight away once added to NASDAQ, crazy gains already and I can only see it going up.
Plus it’s something I really believe in and stand with so it’s always nice to invest in something that you really want to follow and see grow.
Currently only holding 267 shares but grabbing more at any chance I can. Wish I’d bought more at 20p now!
Ok, Ben. Being of the passive investing persuasion, I’ve hitherto been a bit sceptical of some of your claims and advice. But I can see that as an experiment, this approach has merit i.e. invest in a sufficiently large number of stocks and it starts to mimic an ETF of one type or another.
So, in the spirit of entertainment (per your initial post), I’ve bought, in total, just under £900 of the stocks in the spreadsheet, specifically those that can be held in an ISA and are available to a non-Plus account. You’ll be particularly pleased that to dabble in this ‘dark side’ I sold some bond ETF units to fund it.
And on that note, I’m off to have a stiff drink.
I’m as excited as you are. Could I really give a crowd wisdom for a material part of my portfolio? Certainly they could focus my attention on maybe the top 100 stocks to focus my research on out of thousands out there. Some will be not so good, but I suspect a lot will be excellent. There are loads of other good mentions in this thread.
We will certainly have a more structured approach going forwars if by June this is a success rather than the first 60 odd replies!
Will deftinely keeping an eye out for june
that’s funny ‘ to dabble in this dark side’ that gave me a good laugh
In terms of long term multi baggers (perhaps a different thread!), I think Illumina is an interesting one.
Genomic sequencing is a hugely important and disruptive area for the future. It’s also competitive but Illumina are the market leaders and its acquisition of Grail consolidates that position.
Like a lot of Nasdaq companies, it make may take time for its performance to catch up to and justify its market value. However for a positive endorsement look no further than James Anderson, the Oracle of Scottish Mortgage Trust - he picked Illumina as the company he is most excited about for the future (SMT are of course invested in it) in the podcast linked below. He mentions it at the end - 45m 27s - but the whole podcast is really interesting and is worth a listen.
@CashCow if you ever consider a career change…
The Digital Marketing role might suit you
PS: I’m sympathetic with your pain but sometimes I just can’t help myself. I’m sick. I need help
Ha ha! That’s actually what I do for a living already… though not for them obviously.
I like to think I’m pretty good at my job but I’m really not sure that I’ve got enough ‘digital polish’ to make that turd appealing. It probably wouldn’t help that:
- I don’t believe in the quality of their product at all
- My first marketing initiative would be centred on the phrase "We’re nowhere near as good as Freetrade but hear us out…"
- I’d blow the entire budget on getting Andy Bell from Erasure to star in a promotional campaign. I’m thinking “A Little Respect” might be good, given that that is what I feel as though I’ve received as an AJ Bell customer.
Edit: I feel legally pressured to point out that Andy Bell of Erasure and Andy Bell of AJ Bell are two different people… two very very different people.
Ugh! They have a stadium? I can only assume every transaction has an additional charge of £9.99.
£9.99 booking fee when you buy a ticket, £9.99 transaction fee PER ITEM for any food and drink you buy, £9.99 to spend a penny/go the loos and of course, because that fee applies to Sells as well as Buys, you have to pay £9.99 when you want to leave the stadium along with additional £9.99s for every item you take out with you. You should probably leave that match programme behind.
Until FT covers more of the market who do people use to invest in companies not on FT?
I use Trading212 and Interactive Brokers.
T212 is similar to FT in that all its offerings are free, whilst IBKR charges but it has the benefit of being able to access LOTS of markets, as well as offering other items which are not as common such as european options .
