Earlier this year – a week or two after I published an article on the British multinational pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) HERE, I bought shares in the FTSE 100 giant for the first time in well over a decade. It has worked out pretty well so far, but the story is certainly evolving because
as I noted here in early May ‘GlaxoSmithKline is fortunately about so much more than the current CEO’. I am sure you have heard about the ‘strategic overhaul of GlaxoSmithKline by Dame Emma Walmsley’ which was announced yesterday.

Hello, Share Bunnies. Shall we have another look at BT Group (BT.A), which I reviewed fairly recently? The shares have been on an upward slope for some months now but I still think the improved share price has further to go.

I admit I am very boring when talking about everything including shares. It is amazing that my wife is still with me. Back in April, I observed about FTSE 100 name DS Smith (SMDS) I ‘typically loving-up its exposure to e-commerce delivery box-making…along with a capability for sustainable packaging solutions, paper products and recycling services worldwide’. The share has historically worked really well for me – especially over the last nine months – but I do admit it has made little further progress since my last write up a couple of months ago. So should I still be excited or start to consider alternative options after today’s publication of its full year numbers to the end of April?

Recommending shares in J Sainsbury (SBRY) as an Income portfolio buy in November at a 199.7p offer price, we noted grocery and general merchandise sales had remained strong to date in its second half of the year and suggested a 260p+ share price achievable. Little more than 7 months later the shares are already nearly there.

Back in April I wished Tesco (TSCO) CEO “Newbie Ken” the best of luck over the next year or two ‘but I can understand why there are not a bunch of new shareholders buying hard and pushing the share price sharply up’. Since then the shares have stayed nor far either side of 230p. Is there any need to radically change view after today’s first quarter update?

Oil has been on a bit of a charge recently and there aren’t any real signs of that strength coming to an end anytime soon, but quite a few of the producers haven’t responded as well as you would expect, in terms of share price movement.

At various points during the last five years, the ‘British luxury clothing retail company’ Ted Baker (TED) has been written about on this website, almost exclusively describing it as having a range of business issues. If only it was just losing money! And whilst the shares have pushed up over 75% since December (thanks general bump in the market!), over the last five years they are down a cool 92%, moving from a multi-billion market cap at one point to c£300 million today. The question today is whether it is even worth this?

Hello, Share Twiddlers. How much do you rely on the internet to fill your working and leisure hours? Well, just imagine if it went down for a week. How would you cope then? And as the developing world catches up and even more services go online, including the much bigger, virus-swollen army of home workers, use of the net is only going to grow and grow.
