Hello, Share Scrummers. When the going gets tough out there in the Big City, as now, the sensible approach is to buy shares in companies which may be hit by the general situation, but which seem as strong as an ox and could be among the first to bounce back in the almost inevitable rally.
Hello, Share Scramblers. We’ve all found to our cost that just because a company is big enough to be in the Footsie, doesn’t mean it’s any more immune than the rest from disaster. But some shares still seem more reliable than others.
Hello Share Farmers. A share which I have held ever since Yorkshire Television was snapped up by Granada is Compass (CPG). This is the Footsie catering giant which Granada was absorbed into.
Hello Share Tweakers. Everyone has a few shares in their bag which they consider as super reliable. This faith can sometimes backfire, as we all know to our cost. But it’s not a frequent happenstance.
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.
Hello Share Twisters. Every so often I return to Compass (CPG) the big caterer and office services provider. The company can be found in offices, factories, schools, hospitals and other such places in about fifty countries. And I like it because this stock continues to bring home the goods.
Hello Share Scramblers. Time to check our Compass (CPG) again. I’ve long supported this golden company. Even in dark times, like now, for example, the shares maintain a strong showing.
Hello Share Shovellers. You might consider doing a bit of research into Compass Group (CPG), especially if you are looking for a longer-term investment.
Hello Share Takers. First of all let's not forget the real meaning of Easter – and it's not to take advantage of the closed markets to review your portfolio.
There was a reference somewhere to good news about Compass (CPG) the international food and hospitality services company. But search as a might, like a French hog nosing out truffles I could not locate the good news.
Hello Share Fanciers: I've sung the praises before of the catering giant Compass Group (CPG). I've held their shares since they split with Granada Television. Remember them?
Hello Share Shiners: There are some companies that shout success at you. The share price continues to rise in a slow steady progression and the divis tick up, too.
