FOCUS ON YOUR LOSSES, NOT YOUR PROFITS

Everybody wants to make money in the stock market but it’s all too easy to get distracted from how to do that. In fact, over the years the distraction has become so strong that I feel that most investors have actually lost their way entirely. You see, very much like me, my thinking is also quite simple. For example, and whilst I can’t say for sure I would imagine that… Read More

THE TRIPLE S ‘SHARE SPIKE STRATEGY’

For today’s article, I thought that it was about time to start to giving my two avid followers some real, tangible value. That’s not to say that I don’t think that you receive great value and no doubt pleasure from my information packed, informative and mildly witty reports but rather you deserve now to see how to make real money from it. So today I’m going to share with you… Read More

EUROPE LOOKS CHEAP TO ME

Despite the fact that I believe that the market could suffer a crash either this year or next. that is not to say that I am not investing or that you shouldn’t either. After all investing in the markets whilst simultaneously protecting a portfolio using hedging strategies is not the same as sitting in cash and watching your money dwindle away into the abyss through inflation. So, with that mindset,… Read More

HOW COMFORTABLE IS IT REALLY TO BE A SHEEP?

I just came back from the Isle of Man yesterday with the kids and as any parent will know, the one thing that kids love more than anything (perhaps with the exception of chocolate) are animals. So, there I was sitting next to my girls in Tapnell Farm watching them bottle feed baby lambs (very cute) and it got me thinking. It got me thinking about the differences between us… Read More

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO HAVE A HEDGE EVEN IF YOU DON’T HAVE A GARDEN

Hooray! It’s the last day of the financial year 2017/18 and people are totting up their income and capital gains to see how much money they made. Like every year some investors had a good year and some had a not so good year. However, what most people don’t realise is that whilst the financial year runs from April 6th to April 5th, that is not where you should be concentrating… Read More

THE FINAL NAIL IN THE COFFIN FOR RETAIL COMPANIES?

Sometimes it can take a while for investors to wake up and smell the coffee. Even if the aroma is filling the room, we all know that being snug in bed and living in the blissful world of ignorance is sometimes a happier place – at least for a while. Well unfortunately sleeping time is over and it’s time to get moving. That’s because the retail market is dying a… Read More

DON’T TRADE CRYPTO CURRENCY – JUST MINE IT!

Like anything in life that involves money people will often jump in without thinking. It’s a dangerous game to play but because the pay-off can sometimes be very good, investors usually take the risk. Look at Bitcoin for example. Yes, lots of people made lots of money in it but I also know just as money people who lost a lot of money as well. We shouldn’t forget that Sir… Read More

FANCY GETTING 8% ON YOUR CASH SAVING?

  I know that it’s hard to believe but there are some places in the world where investors are getting 8% on their cash savings! I know this because I am one of them. Now I’m the last person that would usually advocate cash savings because interest rates are so poor and with inflation of 2.5% you would normally have nothing left over which is why I always tell… Read More

Stock ISAs

  Last week I had a client come in to my office with over half a million pounds worth of share certificates that had been accumulated for over 30 years. What a logistical mess. It took my team over 7 hours to work through all of the papers and this is only the first part of the job done. Now the fun bit starts where we have to… Read More

IS TRADITIONAL ADVERTISING DEAD?

  It’s official – advertising is dead. Other than the chocolate teapot industry I can’t think of any industry that I would like to invest in less. Think about it for a second. Back in the day the media was controlled by a small number of elite companies, all well-connected and all out to serve themselves. Whether it was television, newspaper or radio there were only a small number… Read More
