Thanks for highlighting but unfortunately when I click on the link it prompts to be to 'subscribe' rather than to an article I can read.

i'm not part of this, but happened to have a look.. i'm amazed that there is appetite to do anything along these lines. i'd never only look for 10% growth in the share price. if i wasn't optimistic that a company i owned was going to rise more than 10% i'd just sell and buy shares in a company that was moving in the right direction.

am i missing something? :think:.

In my opinion, 10% is a very good return.

Yes lots
We had a vote on this and that was what we voted far
We got well battered on Carillion having double up/down at £2+ per share
A vote to sell it when there was still a chance to salvage something was defeated.
We have 13, well 11 shares of which 8/10 are down but we wont sell anything at a loss
3 years on and we are down overall by 15%
Think that covers everything

Just spotted Barclays up 12%. Richard if you are reading this can you set the sell 'roll up' instruction? Thanks

Ok. Current price is £2.09 so I have set it to automatically sell if the price drops to £2.07

These have continued potential
Originally bought 339 at £1.87 on 17 Nov 2017
Not aiming for much of a profit then?

That’s what we voted for and to be honest I think a small profit would be a good thing at the moment
