Well surprisingly they seem to want to go up..
Which goes to show if you try and second guess what's going to happen and take a firm view the markets will always make a monkey out of you.
However the market is hoping for more stimulus and if it doesn't get it there is no ruling out it going down again. And is it possible the Euro thing has gone quiet?
Stuff I own is going so well actually it's been a quiet week for me and given I've been out a lot I've been very grateful the markets have been stable.
So all in all I've not done a lot. Sometimes it's like that, trades should never be forced just for the sake of it.
I've made nice sums from a brilliant company - Anite (LON:AIE) over the last 2 years - the thing I did wrong was always sell too early on it. Never mind.
I bought some the day before results at 122.4 and those results did not disappoint yesterday. Excellent rise in profits, and also a superb outlook, one to tuck away for me now for some time, perhaps a year or two, it looks the perfect ISA share.
It's not one that's going to double in a few weeks, but it's one that could gently bring in the money.
Fenner (LON:FENR) has been battered over the last few weeks. Made so much from this one over the years, my best was when I bought it around 77p. It went down to about 330 so I missed what might be the bottom, but still I bought at 346 targetting initially 400 but if the market rises over the summer it's got a reasonable chance of heading higher than that. However if the market tanks it will probably tank with it so one to be careful with.
While the market is upbeat holding shorts is a bit dangerous. Afren (LON:AFR) turned when it hit the early 90s and a lowered stop took me out at 98.4 for a profit of £290. Seems to not want to go through 110 for now, so potential for another short there perhaps. Senior went at 186 for a profit of £270.
A good week with most things gently drifting higher. None of mine have really put anything out worth noting so not much to chat about this time.
Lovely LOQ (LON:LOQ) is back on the way up! Already a trebler for me but more to come? Plenty of LOQ bots were being used at Legoland when I was there a couple of weeks ago.
Dialight (LON:DIA) has come back a bit since unexpectedly getting a slot in the FTSE 250. Possibly as small cap funds would have sold out, still 250 funds should be buying in now. I have been patient all the way from 150p and it now tries to conquer its all time high around 1100. A those of you who have to my seminars have seen from my accounts my profits in real life are something like £90,000. For the website profits are more than £50,000 - and of course there have been dividends on top.
IP Group (LON:IPO) reported today it has realised some profit as another of its portfolio gets a listing on the aim market. What an investment that's been! It has a more than 20% holding in Oxford Nanopore which has made the world's first hand held DNA sequencer, probably worth a fortune for the company. It just has a knack for investing in the right companies. More upside I think despite the recent rises.
Filtronic (LON:FTC) came up with quite a bullish statement which has pushed the price up. Jury is still out as to whether this one has more legs but for right now, thinks look pretty good. Already close to doubling on it and maybe it will surprise with more later this year.
It is everything you want from a long-term hold. A fantastic income and a gradually upward share price - together as long as the world doesn't blow up, it should deliver 15% or so per year. Possibly more. So I am happy to continue to hold more than a quarter of a million quids worth of shares without any worries about it or even bothering checking the share price. It helps that in this case I have them mainly in share certs! I also luckily have an option to buy another 4,000 shares at 164p...!
The brilliant Nicols stays steady around 7 quid.It is a lovely little long-term share. Hoping for an eventual bid there. Brought this one up at a few seminars.
BTG (LON:BTG) has really been flying this week, it has conquered the 400 mark at last. and is nearly there! Corin continues to gradually drift higher. Kentz (LON:KENZ) and Costain (LON:COST) improving nicely.
So, a quiet week, let's see what the next few days brings.
