Cyprotex (CRX) Updated the market with a snippet of a trading update which stated that the first quarter trading was ahead of generally all expectations.

In this article, the penultimate one of our series considering the prime types of asset available to long term savers, we turn our attention towards the potential help and advice available from professional financial advisors and portfolio managers, but particularly focus on – and suggest a few trading ideas for - the ‘Do-it-Yourself’ investor.
As we near the end of this series of blogs, reviewing the long term investment opportunity for retirement provision or other long term savings, the writer thought it would be useful to summarise – in tabular and aide memoire format - some of the asset classes we have examined and potential investment vehicles considered.
Having looked at collective investment schemes last week, we now turn to look at two other investment vehicles which may have attractions in the quest to find solutions for long term savings: structured products and hedge funds.
Over the course of the past two months these articles have been assessing the merits and shortcomings of various kinds of asset into which long term savers may choose to invest, from cash to bonds, property to commodities through, most recently, to equity. In this one we seek to consider some of the prime alternative means of investing into stock market listed bonds and equities.
In the previous article we looked at how the worth of profits can be assessed, as a means of placing a value on listed company shares. In this one, we will take a broader view of the universe of equity investment available to the personal investor – but occasionally referring back to the often controversial subject of determining a reasonable or fair price.
Last week’s blog introduced the concept of taking a stake in leading businesses, by owning a portion of the ordinary share capital – as opposed to receiving a steady income from ‘lending’ money to the company (corporate bond investment), which represents part of its debt capital. This article investigates how we can try to value such equity.
