They say pick a basket of stocks and you will never be over exposed.
BUT that doesnt work on Aim stocks as you could pick 30 stocks and they could all be DOGS.
Better plan is to get a tip from a respected source or follow the smart money,who are they, where are they, what have they been invested in before which has been successful.
DYOR thoroughly. go and listen to them at AGMs. If your a good public speaker get up n Quiz them, get some Qs from other BB members who know more than you, but cant get along.
When I am not talking at these events I often shut my eyes n think does this person/ people deserve to look after my money. Any doubts at all walk away,
If you dont have the time to DYOR better to invest in Footse 100 companies even there, turkeys lurk for the unsuspecting.
And of course you aint never gonna get rich in these biggies, but then you could be flat broke in the AIM stocks. I honestly believe that many of these AIM stock Directors couldnt run the proverbial p.ss up in a brewery, so poor are they. Even the ones that stumble upon great riches, such as GKP are plagued by mismanagement, hype, greed you name it, all human frailties are exhibited.
Your not asking for advice but I would say, be circumspect when looking at AIM investments, walk round it,prod it, sniff it If it dont smell right walk away.
Everything smells right here, it looks right, but is it?
I think so and am completely undeterred by these small delays.
Oh I already got some losses Antimony, portfolio of 10, 5 up + 5 down, know I'm spread too thin but afraid to lump all eggs in only a few baskets, top heavy in PLE and TLDH (I know, sheep following the herd) but I will learn over time I hope. Just need to spot the right ones to buy into when low. ATB
