In fact sometimes I think Posters from outside the club have a better view of things because they don't have a vested intrest
I don't think we pay that much attention to the weekly figure when it comes to selling.
We are a slow-to=respond club in that respect
We've had funds to invest for sometime now and seem no near er to making a purchase

I enjoy this report as it is nice to see if we beat or matched the FTSE but I don't think it affects our investments. As others have said, we are slow to react to anything here, so a week of losses would not really affect our strategy. At the same time, we'd be crippled when, like with NCC, fast reactions are required.

I'm not sure a democracy can ever react quickly in these areas.

Perhaps a minimum investment of £1,500 per share of what ever is economic to do so but £500 does not seem efficient...

I think that would put off some people who would be prepared to risk a small amount plus their cashback but would find £1500 too much to tie up or even risk losing.

You are correct. We need more members so our cash pot is bigger to make us more efficient. Ideally, a minimum of £10,000 per share.

Actually to be total efficient the purchase should be for £9999 as purchases of £10,000 or more attract an additional levy staring at £1.00 A bit of advance information as I think you are a bit away from having this problem yet... :ugeek:

Our portfolio is only about $5,000
Also with fewer share holdings you run bigger risks

Carillion looking even more lucrative with nearly 9% dividend.
