Not all our share tips are winners. If they are doing nothing we try to admit we erred and advise selling even if it means taking a small loss. We want our readers invested in shares that are moving the right way and quickly. But there comes a time to sell even big winners. This month we have already advised readers to bank gains three times.

Last week, Tom accused me of bailing on on my 2017 tips as I was too busy dancing naked around the Winterval Pole praying for Gaia to weaken the minds of good people around the world to accept ciimate change. Or something like that, I didn't read it too closely. Now, my role here at ShareProphets is to keep the plates spinning, not make the tips. But that changes today.

Since Christmas Even the various authors on the ShareProphets website have been serving up at least 1 share tip for 2017 every single day. There are blue chips, small caps, buys and sells. And of course we also have our readers share tip prize contest for 2017 where the deadline to enter is midnight and where you can enter HERE. But what did our writers tip.

Once again we will have a competition and once again the prize is a meal with myself. If you dislike me you can fob that meal off on someone else. All you need to do before midnight on January 2nd is to post in the comments section below your stock to buy and your stock to sell. Steve Moore will monitor and report back monthly on how the competition fares. He will also be announcing the 2016 winner on 3rd January. Good luck all and especially, should they enter, to our favourite semi naked twins Hayley & Kate Whittaker pictured below.

Telit Communications (TCM) is the most heavily shorted stock on AIM but its share price has proved incredibly resilient. At 275p it is almost up at 2016 year highs and the company is capitalised at £317 million. But you simply cannot defy gravity forever and, as a sell, it is my next share tip of the year.
Published 88 days ago
The entries in the ShareProphets readers share tips contest are stacking up. And who would not want to win a meal with me? I very much hope that Hayley & Kate, pictured below,, enter and are successful. If they do win there is no need for them to dress up, if that makes them feel uncomfortable. I have two ideas for my sell but think Steve would ban them both so instead I go for one he will allow and explain why it is going to 0p. Then I explain why my buy - which we do own - could multibag. I hope you will enter the contest as well and you can do so HERE

Boy did Amryt bore its loyal shareholders, including us, to tears for most of 2016. Owning this stock, formerly a failed oil explorer Fastnet, was like watching paint dry. Amid a totally understandable ennui the shares drifted back to lows of just under 14p which - as we had tipped the shares at 18.4p and bought ourselves at higher levels - was a bit of a pain. But then in November it roared into life and the shares are now 18.5p-20.5p and are my second buy tip of the year at up to 22p.

If the bonkers convicted criminal Aidan Earley goes through with his threat and takes legal action against me I shall see him in court and - once again - I shall defeat him. I explain what happened last time we met and why it is vital that Earley is now crushed. If he wins I shall quit writing about shares and this website will close. You say "so what?". The point is that if Earley wins it will become suicidal to run negative articles even on the most blatant of frauds, he will have established this principle. London will become a safe haven for fraudsters. That is what Earley wants. This article HERE is referred to when I say how FEW companies I accuse of fraud, contrary to what the dirty little criminal Earley says.

Best FTSE-100 short for 2017? After musing about the property stocks I chanced upon Wolseley’s (WOS) epic push towards a 50 quid share price. First congratulations to anyone who picked up shares in the plumbing and building industry supplier at the time of the Brexit referendum vote for around 36 quid. My advice though for 2017 is to sell the shares.

If you want to buy just one new single stock in the FTSE-100 for 2017 you need to look at the perceived Brexit losers given, over the course of the next 12 months, Brexit apocalypse will move further away via delays and position dilution. Forget big overseas earners as this backdrop will crimp their translated back into Sterling earnings so it has to be more domestic plays. And filtering for market leadership, strong balance sheet and continued growth hopes I end up with Whitbread (WTB) the owner of the Costa Coffee and Premier Inn franchises.
