‘Twas the night before Christmas and the man who liked to be known as Britain’s Buffett paced up and down his bedroom, deep in thought. Attending the local carol service at the Church nearest his Country Estate, Neil Woodford felt that he had so much in common with the wise men but like the Shepherds he was this evening of a troubled mind.

Hello Share Trippers. At the grand opening of that great Global Group Uk Investor Show just passed, Nigel Wray, perhaps Britain’s sagest investor, our own Warren Buffet, observed that the private investor gets a poor deal all round. How very true. The gathering of 3,000 of you at Westminster really did give PIs a voice, it is a start.

Nigel Wray is the man known as Britain's Buffett. He does not punt on resources stocks or high risk biotech wheezes. Instead he makes his millions buying shares in smaller growth companies that make profits, pay dividends and generate cash. That is value investing. He was one of the early investors in Domino's and made tens of millions from Telecom Plus as well. There was property giant Burford, just an £8 million capitalised penny share when he got involved and the list of winners goes on and on

Value investing is how you make money from shares. Any other approach is not investing but speculating and is, by definition, hit and miss. So do you want to know what Britain's leading value investors are thinking and what shares they are buying and selling? Today's special opportunity is.... Three great value investors will be on stage together discussing how they select stocks and what they are buying and selling at the Global Group UK Investor Show in London on April 21. They are: Paul Scott, Britain's top share blogger, Nigel Wray, the man known as Britain's Buffett, and Dr Paul Jourdan the boss at the hugely successful Amati fund management operation.

It has been a while, but it seems that the hoods from Equities First Holdings LLC are back once again: AIM-listed Avingtrans (AVG) announced on Tuesday that one of its NEDs, Mr Ewan Lloyd-Baker, is handing over 300,000 shares for a two year loan. The text of the RNS (just as with Igas, Cloudbuy, IQE, Quindell, Optimal Payments (as was) and Angle) again fails to point out that from Mr Lloyd-Baker’s point of view the deal is non-recourse so he can throw in the towel at any time if things go wrong.

Normally Nigel Wray turns up at UK Investor, talks and leaves. This year - our 15th anniversary party - is different. He will be there from start to finish and when not on stage that opens up a unique opportunity for those attending on April 1. For more than 40 years, Nigel , the man dubbed Britain's Buffett, has been a stockmarket legend for his ability to generate stellar returns not by wild gambling on mining punts or biotech start ups but by rigid value investing. Like the Original Buffett, the Sage of Omaha, Wray is a bottom up value investor who buys and holds. Would you like to know what he thinks is the cheapest share in London? Would you like a one to one chat with Nigel?

April 1 really is the date for the UK Investor Show which is now the 15th time that Nigel Wray, aka Britain's Buffett, and I have been involved in staging such an event. So it is a birthday party as well. And with MBN, the incredibly well regarded events management firm owned by Nigel's daughter Lucy, now in charge this will be a knockout event. Indeed here are more than 150 reasons why anyone serious about making money from shares must be there!

If you had to bet the ranch on one share listed in London what would it be? I guess most of us would go for a FTSE 100 stock: Tesco, GlaxoSmithKline or maybe Shell. For the man known as Britain's Buffett, Nigel Wray, the answer is not a blue chip but a small cap. For that is how Wray has made his fortune taking large stakes in smaller companies such as Domino's Pizza when no-one had heard of them.

The Sunday Times front page splashed with news of a forthcoming AIM IPO in the music streaming world, Electric Jukebox. It is an easy splash in that my pal Nigel Wray, Britain's Buffett, is an investor and the company has celebrity "investors" lead by Cheryl Crow whose face beams out of the paper. Chris Akers vehicle Yolo (YOLO) has today raised £2.5 million and is investing £1.4 million in EJ so maybe that is the IPO the paper refers to. But for me this is a big miss and here's why.

Hello Share Fans. Well, that was some show and no mistake. I refer to the UK Investor Show at Westminster on Saturday. The dodgy uncertainty of the share world at the mo had no detrimental effect on the attendance. The auditorium was full and the many trade stands were bristling with ordinary investors like us. But if you weren't there , let me give you a quick idea of the best general pieces of advice I picked up, especially for the state of the markets as they are now.

There is no doubt that Reach4Entertainment (R4E) has been a total dog of an investment for many a year. But it goes into 2016 in great shape. We have bought shares in the market at 1.4p and 1.45p. I reckon the shares are going to 3.5-4.5p within two years and as such this is my 3rd tip of the year.

After meeting the ghost of Christmas past HERE and the ghost of Christmas present HERE young Christopher Oil tried as hard as he could to get some sleep. He tried counting Sefton share certificates. It was a bit like counting sheep. They were fluffy and stupid and just hopped over the fence into a big void where they disappeared. But that did not work.

We make no comment at all about the uber-modest Chris Oil as he declares that he is officially Britain’s Warren Buffet (cripes where did I miss you on the Sunday Times Rich List?) and outlines his plans.

You will remember that the market abuser Chris Oil claims to have a better investment record than Warren Buffett (HERE) and that he targets a gain of 100% every time he trades (see the video here), so what on earth is happening to his big positions.
