Share tips

Evening everyone,

There seems to be quite a few savvy investors on this forum and therefore thought it might be good to put any potentially good companies/tips on one thread. Obviously it would require people to do there own research, but may be useful to share research/opinions etc.

Treat any share tips on a forum with due diligence as they say. I look for companies with rising profits, low debt, not more than 3 times full year profits and a market cap of no more the 15 times full year profits, as a starting point.

I know its not a tip, sorry about that

I've got a tip! Look both ways when crossin the road!
nah! only kiddin
Preparation is the key,It does'nt have to cost the earth,t-cut might not be cutting edge (no pun intended) but it DOES the job and does it cheaply.
The longer you leave the wax before polishin off the better the finish,I left Megs NXT over two hours and got improved results(obviously there will be a limit to this)

On the same silly note, here's a tip:

Don't eat yellow snow!

No, seriously it would be great to see some good saving ideas/companies and dealings people have had with them.

I used to have too many AIM resources stock in my portfolio, far too volatile. This year technology stocks have been the most successful for me, companies like CCC, and Spirent. I still have Some oil and gold, EGU and Petrofac but my portfolio is much more diverse now, and far fewer companies. I don't get involved in small pharmaceuticals, consume too much cash for little reward.

I use the 'Naked Trader' style of share investing which has served me well. http://www.nakedtrader.co.uk/index.htm

Will second Spirent, had a spread bet open on them for a while, every time I think about locking in my profit it picks up again.

Tip: cut your losses early but let your profits run

Yes agree, stop losses are a must, 10% for me.

I was going to say freon you sound like the naked trader himself lol. Just read the books mate, and try not to over analyse everything... sometimes your gut feeling is better! (or losses you everything!)

Thank you. Go to one of his seminars and you learn even more! I am afraid gut instincts on Dart group a while back, lost me 25% before I could activate a stop loss.
