How to Keep our Peckers Up as War Causes Shortages and Bumps Up Inflation

Hello Share Hunters. I don't know about you, but I feel totally on edge and sad at the mo. I’ m not sure whether its the madness in Ukraine or that my share portfolio is well down in value. I hope, for the sake of my humanity, that it’s the former. And I think it is. Because as I’ve argued before the Footsie often soars when the initial shocks of war are out of the way.

Fears that Inflation Will Hit All Our Shares Are, well, Inflated.

Hello Share Churners. The news is full of vulnerable folks stricken by the rising cost of living. This can give share shifters like us the heebie jeebies. We expect that the whole country will be unable to spend very much because the cash needs to go on bigger bills for electricity, gas, petrol, council tax, national insurance and food.

Despite Rising Shares, Here's a Topping Trio that Could Enjoy Rising Share Prices

Hello, Share Slickers. Perhaps it might be an idea to look at a few companies I've commended recently to see how they're doing. Progress has been slow but sure. All ships rise or fall with the tide and as the Footsie has been moribund, any rise might be regarded as encouraging. And as many of us expect many stocks to rise with an accelerating economy, perhaps we should be hanging onto our hats.


No Need to Panic. The Fear of Inflation is Often Inflated by Shareholders.

Hello, Share Thrashers. There’s some worry about the rising rate of inflation. But how does that thorny issue affect our shares? Many folks, including some expert in the field, reckon inflation is a bad thing for the stock market. And certainly, when the government publishes a high inflation notice, the Footsie nearly always falls, often quite heavily.
