within the next 6 months I am expecting to see 275p to 310p here
I know what Barclays Bank share on worth paper 240p is cheap as chip IMHO for ant value investor
I would say Barclays PLC is one of the only few FTSE100 stocks sitting at Bargain way below Cost value dividend paying share
The Market knows the retail investor is very emotional and many will get want to frustrated and sell up only to read the Financial page in the Sun to see the Doom share is back to the original price …come how any of has have sold out on other shares in panic cos the doom merchants saying it’s all over and only within 6 months the share price is back
Be strong and Brave all we The patient Barclays investor here will be loaded in years to come
Really sound advice. See we can be friendly on this board ha ha : )
I can relate to it too because after the Yhoo sale I really regret it as Id of had a nice pot now on that. I think with my limited funds the only thing I can do is play the long game and your advice will keep me going through the -10p hits when I'm tempted to pull out ; )
Hi Liberalman. I agree totally and I invest like you but there are a lot of traders here who naturally talk their positions. I don't short unless it's the footsie where I mostly buy put options but if one of my investments drops 10-15% for no real reason, I'll buy a few more and give them back a bit higher to improve the average. It seems to work for me.
Let me give you a spot of advice to save you a lot of heartache. You don't wanna really worry too much about share price movements this way or that in the short term. You will get volatility. What you really shud do is pick a stock.. have a long term target in mind... and wait for it. Otherwise you just end up paying lots of brokerage charges.
I'll give you my example.. bought into Barclays @ 2.07. I'll review again only when the sp gets to about 2.75 - 3.00. I won't worry about a 5 - 10% move this way or that. Didn't get excited about the 8% move up the other day.
If you chase your tail.. buying and selling regularly, you'll find you end up losing overall. It's like tossing a coin twice.. three... four... multiple times to get the buy/sell right. Impossible. Remember... you are investing.. not gambling. Ignore all the noise and garbage around you and attempts to dazzle you with voodoo science.
Pick a stock where you feel the market has gone too far in discounting the 'bad news'. Stick with it till it more or less reaches what you feel its worth. Repeated research has shown time and again that frequent traders end up losing much more than the calmer investors.
It's worked for Warren Buffett (he's become one of the world's richest men using this Investment approach). And it's worked for me. Your call.
