There's No Business Like this Show's Business - but Your Time is Running Out

By Malcolm Stacey | Monday 6 March 2017


Hello Share Riders. I’d been playing the markets for many years before I went to my first investment show in London. Like everyone else in this golden game, I thought I knew it all anyway. Nor did I want to be bored to death by grim-faced grey-suits, all younger than I. But Uncle Tom told me his show was different and I attended my first UK Investor Show four years ago.

Since then I would not miss it for the world. And I advise you to get your ticket for April 1st now, because I’m not the only one to be entranced. And soon all the tickets will be gone. If you like stocks and shares, this will probably be among the best days-out you’ve ever had. And that’s not because it’s held at one of the swishes conference venues in Britain.

You see, this is no ordinary money show, folks. This is the real deal. The line-up of speakers is probably the best in the world. The exhibitors know this and that’s why they are flocking to make their pitch.

You will hear everything bang-up-to-date that you need to know. It comes from the horses’s mouth. From gold-plated experts. And you’ll get the griff  - sheer gold information - for next to nothing, too.

But its not conventional presentations that make this show. This one has the Sheriff of Aim himself on the stage. And he’s on for a long time - sharing it with other legendary scourges of the injustices of Shareland.

Tom Winnifrith keeps many managers of, let’s say, less-than-reliable companies awake at night. What will he find out next? What will he reveal for the first time on April 1st?. Who will sent him a writ soon afterwards?

You’ll love the hard-hitting controversy of much of what you’ll hear. This extravaganza, unlike its rivals, thrives on exposing duff managers and poor companies. That’s what makes it different. Though it has many positive ideas to offer, too.

Read up on the promotional material for the UK Investor Show on this sparkling website. Or read the emails you are being sent on the subject. Have you ever seen such a vibrant public platform for crackling criticism in all your life?

It’s this contention, disputation and flak which puts icing on the cake for the show. You’ll find some companies you must never invest in. You’ll also be given the steer, often by experts who risk millions of their own money, on which companies are worth trying out.

The speakers will make you laugh. They’ll make you cry. They’ll have you waiting for the market to re-open to hit the sell button. And they have you frothing at the reins to click on’ buy’.

So go on. Get off your bum and treat yourself to sheer entertainment for next to now’t. And think of the money you might make - or save. Just for admitting for once that you don't know everything. Because none of us do - ever.

I’m now going to spread the word in the Punter’s Return.

TW Note: And the compere for the show this year is a certain M Stacey!
