At the absolute minimum we would need three choices put forward.

Here is my suggestion;

Manx Telecom (MANX)

Objective
Income


Risk
Higher


Manx Telecom is the leading communication solutions provider on the Isle of Man. The Group offers a wide range of fixed line, broadband, mobile and data centre services to businesses, consumers and the public sector on the Isle of Man. The Group also provides a growing portfolio of innovative solutions to offshore customers.

Key reasons to buy

Good cashflow leading to a progressive dividend policy.

Developing Vannin Ventures a new business incubator aimed at investing in new products and services.

New hearing loss product Goshawk Communication launched in September.

Potentially less exposed to Brexit concerns.

Things to be wary of


Costs have risen as a result of new technology and the launch of Goshawk.

With its business in the Isle of Man growth prospects are somewhat limited.

The shares are listed on the AIM market and liquidity can be limited.

Recommended stop loss 20%

The bad news is that The Times has also tipped Manx Telecom today. Which will probably lift the price on Monday
In 2001 Manx Telecom was one of the first operators in the world to launch fast broadband services and the first in Europe to create a live 3G network.

The Isle of Man government is encouraging technology investment in an attempt to move the island away from a reliance on the financial services sector, which has given it a reputation as a haven for tax avoidance and evasion. Gaming and other high-tech industries now make up almost one third of the economy.

Manx Telecom has a spin-off, Vannin Ventures, which invests in technology start-ups and products. Vannin has a large shareholding in Goshawk Communications, a Cambridge-based company that develops hearing products, and their partnership produced MT Clearsound.

It works by creating a hearing profile on a user’s mobile so that every call they receive is pitched for their level of hearing. The company says the technology has a “huge potential addressable market”, working well for those with good and poor hearing. It says that during clinical trials it worked for 90 per cent of participants.

Analysts say MT Clearsound’s potential for growth is good, but just how good is uncertain. According to Ofcom, the communications regulator, the number of mobile phone calls made last year in the UK fell 1.7 per cent, the first drop since mobiles were invented, and the trend is expected to continue because of the growing popularity of messaging apps.

The performance
Manx Telecom’s first-half results put revenue at £38.1 million (down 0.9 per cent compared with revenue of £38.5 million for the first half of 2017) and profits 1.4 per cent down at £6.6 million. The company said it had suffered a reduction in roaming revenue after EU rules made it cheaper.

Manx Telecom’s dividend was raised from 3 .9p to 4.1p, and shares have risen more than 2 per cent to 173.5p since the launch of the Goshawk hearing device. Graham Spooner, an investment research analyst at the Share Centre, a stockbroker that has placed a “buy” rating on the shares, says they are attractive for those prepared to invest in a company with an unusual niche and a promising technological product.

Gary Lamb, Manx Telecom’s chief executive, said the company had completed a “solid six months” and that its long-term prospects were good.

The verdict
Manx Telecom is at the forefront of the Isle of Man’s fast-growing high-tech sector with its new hearing product, which has strong potential for growth. The company’s shares are near four-year lows, but those willing to take a risk should consider pouncing while the price is cheap. BUY.

Tips from well-respected publications / authors do generally increase the share price in the short term. Unfortunately we don't have a method to make quick-off-the-mark purchases.

I was thinking about this the other day. What do you think of looking back at some of the past recommendations made by some of these tipsters, seeing how they have performed and if there is any merit in investing? I'm thinking 6 months back to see where things have gone and if there is any value in pursuing one of them?

Just noting no response to this yet, but wanted to suggest my reasoning. It sounds like trying to look at companies where the babies have already flown the nest... However, considering either our lack of experience or lack of time to do significant research ourselves it might be helpful.

The advantage is we'll have seen what has already happened to ground the tips, can note what news there has been about the companies since the tip was made and as the tips are not "the latest" ones the tipsters have churned out (remember they get paid to find "hot tips" whether there are any or not) they are not going to be on the top of investors lists of next to go for, thus people are not going to suddenly jump on the share come the day of publishing like current tips from say this weekend.

Is it worth considering? I don't know, but maybe we should seeing we have only managed to suggest the share we just sold is re-bought and another that has just been tipped by a tipster as a buy.

Thoughts?

Yes, I think the approach you suggest could be a good one. It's the reasoning I used when suggesting Medica group originally
