Why I think Shares Might Fly when Brexit Gets Closer

Published 15 hours ago

Hello Share Skaters. When pushed by the respected blogger Bearfacts on this ground-breaking website this week, my finger was hovering over ‘sell’ buttons more than ‘buy’ switches in this rather scary month.

So Long Ashtead. Your Last Share Hike Led Me to Take Hefty Profits

Published 3 days ago

Hello Share Movers. After a long and happy relationship, I’ve dumped all this family’s shares in the tool and plant hire company Ashtead (AHT). There are fair reasons, I feel. Though they are nothing to do with the company itself.

The Rising Cost of Foreign Travel Could Be a Drag on Thomas Cook's Shares

Published 7 days ago

Hello Share Crushers. I’ve long held that travel operators are not an ideal choice for investment these days. This is based on the view that as people become more internet savvy, they see the economies of arranging their own holidays - thus eliminating the middle man. This makes it very hard to attain growth, and that’s what really drives share prices. And there are now other concerns on the horizon.

Whitbread Shares May Froth Despite the National Living Wage

Published 9 days ago

Hello Share Cravers. Whitbread (WTB) is a name which still conjures up old-fashioned pubs and breweries. Not necessarily a great business to be in that, as pubs seem to close down all over the shop.

Santa Could Come Early to This Glittering Store as Its Shares Might Fly

Published 31 days ago

Hello Share Scramblers. While its beginning to look a lot like Christmas, B&M (BME) the cheapie store is beginning to look like a reasonable punt to me. The full name is B&M European Retail, by the way.

Compass Could Show the Way, Should Four Year's Hard Work Goes Down the Drain

Published 73 days ago

Hello Share Slurpers. After four years’ dedicated slog, I have finished my blockbuster crime/horror novel. So I've been sending it, one at a time, to literary agents. This is a scary moment, as it could mean four years down the pan. However, I have not made a great deal of money out of my shares over the last four years, either.

Look At Howden Joinery and See if You Could Party in the Kitchen

Published 86 days ago

Hello Share Creepers. I’ve just had a kitchen and a bathroom fitted out. As it isn’t likely to be done again, I chose the most expensive tiles, snazzy worktops, a bath made from steel not plastic and a posh shower screen. Which brings me to today’s suggestion for your further exploration: Howden Joinery (HWDN).

Keep on Falling Pound and Make UK Shareholders Happy

Published 97 days ago

Hello Share Scrapers. The Dow continues to fall. The days when it topped 18500 seem long gone. Happily, the progress of America’s big indicator no longer seems to influence British shares very much. Perhaps it’s because the Brexit vote has given us more of an independent status in the eyes of big investors.

EasyJet Is No Easy Bet while the Pound Flies Low

Published 101 days ago

Hello Share Plinkers. The old memory is not what it was, but I think I may have commended Easyjet (EZJ) to your further researches not so long ago. But stories change all the time, as Uncle Tom often reminds us, and circumstances have altered over the budget airliner.

Robots Play Footsie with the Pound - and Share Shifters Like Us Reap the Benefit.

Published 104 days ago

Hello Share Grinders. The falling pound always seems like a disaster. And It is to holidaymakers and students who are studying broad, like my daughter at the moment. But there is no need to be glum if you are a shareholders. There’s no doubt in my mind that the current soaraway Footsie is because we have brilliant companies over here. Not!!

Nervous Nigel May Be Right to Worry - But Maybe Not Before Christmas

Published 107 days ago

Hello Share Perkers. Nigel Somerville is not only a very nice chap but his analytical skills are legendary and his integrity, like everyone else's on this glittering website, is impeachable. (We quickly disappear from the ranks if we are found the slightest bit wanting). So when Nigel admits to nervousness at the current success of the soaraway Footsie, we have to take it seriously.

Up and Away with British Airways (International Consolidated)? Perhaps Not.

Published 123 days ago

Hello Share Hammerers. I cashed in my British Airways shares before the price of aviation fuel crashed. This timing error cost me a lot of money. And you probably agree with me that selling just before a share price leap is probably the nastiest feeling a share shifter can experience.

Are We Being Served by Debenhams As We Face a Likely Decline in High Street Shopping?

Published 141 days ago

Hello Share Shufflers. I have commended Debenhams (DEB) shares in the past, but I’m changing my mind. This is not because I dislike the store. My nearest branch, which is fairly new, is well laid out, spacious and welcoming. But the truth is that many of us are ordering on-line these days. And sadly these big chain stores may become more and more unnecessary. I had hoped that the nation’s love of shopping would keep them hugely profitable, but hopes are fading.

Themes around a recovering Pound – sector selection for the rest of 2016

Published 143 days ago

Over the years I have heard a lot of rubbish about asset allocation – your choices between equities, bonds, ‘alternative investments’ and cash – being an 80%+ determinant of your return as well as the notion that stock picking is futile and we should all save time and money buying a bunch of cheap-as-chips tracker funds.

War is No Game - But This One Is, and You Could Win. At Least in the Short Term.

Published 164 days ago

Hello Share Swiggers. Games Workshop (GAW) make tiny figures for the war gaming industry. The name Warhammer might be familiar to you. The very imaginative little warriors can be found in specialist shops in many a high street. The firm also makes Hobbit figures. To say that the Hobbit is popular with our young folk is an understatement.

Shares in Smaller Firms Still Suffering from the Brexit Vote Could Rally Soon.

Published 188 days ago

Hello Share Plasterers. Before the Brexit result, I opined that shares would topple, but then make a quick recovery. I didn’t realise then how the bounce back would be much more than a recovery. Shares reached an 11 month high. And yet the BBC continue to broadcast doom and gloom comments that the British economy is now in a perilous situation. The healthy Footsie belies that sort of talk.

A Brexit 'Yes' vote would be bad news for Foxtons

Published 216 days ago

I’ve been fairly bearish on property in general for the past year or so, and whilst I was possibly a little premature in covering a couple of the larger estate agents as shorts, they have ultimately fallen since then.

There's a Fair Chance that FairFX Will See its Customer Count Fairly Fly.

Published 234 days ago

Hello Share  Swelterers. I don’t much like the name of today’s firm I offer for your consideration. You see, I don’t admire company titles which are hard to remember or even say because they don’t conform to the rules of grammar. The company is FairFX  (FFX) which is a prime offender reference my aforementioned prejudice. But having said that, this share is fashionable. That’s because of the EU referendum. If we leave Europe, the pound is expected to take a hit. I dunno why exactly, as the Euro should also be damaged by one of its biggest members leaving. But there we are.
