It was his first post on this board and I was suggesting that it's easy to see that others have made similar mistakes. I may also have been making a general comment that it's not wise to post specific financial details on an anonymous board. You're right, there are some very good posters here, including yourself. I note that you always aim to help which is invaluable for a company that has a large number of employees who do not have general stock market experience. I find the likes of Bazzaman very informitive when they post research backing up their thoughts. However, there is a lot of 'this will be £2/ £3' or even, 'a fall is inevitable' 'it will happen for sure' etc with no reasoning/explanation which could be very unhelpful to those with little knowledge of the company/market.
I do not know what you mean about " it becomes clear when they would have been a lot better off". your post 09:35
People buy and sell when THEY think its right and they would be FOOLS to rely on others to advise them when to buy or sell. It is totally up to those people to do what they think is right. There are some very good people on THIS board that do care what others do and try to give them opinions and information and a little advise on how to proceed with their deals, as we all want to do well and feel for those that make a few mistakes now and again. I do not understand your comment on " it becomes clear when they would have been a lot better off " What do you mean by that ? I may be reading it wrongly but I ask the question. Finally the reason why us dealers chat and inform others what we are doing is to help out friends on what we are doing so it might help them in what they want to do. Sometimes we make mistakes and our forum can help reduce any losses we have made, so keep in touch and ask any questions or help you may need as we are here to help.
To think this was at around 175 just a month ago, and close to 180 just a couple of short weeks ago. I sold a recently-bought tranche at 195, but will certainly be buying more again if it dips back anywhere near those levels in the near future. As I've observed before, it seems that even an clueless fool like me can buy TW and make a bit of profit with minimal risk, safe in the knowledge that if I get 'stuck' with them the consolation is a holding in an excellent company and a rather juicy dividend...
Well said and that's what its all about. As long as you are in profit what else matters ?? We have all taken a hit now and again but as said as long as you are up after taking in to account any hits that is what counts. As we all know any shaky new's always hits us and a fall is inevitable, but only for a while. That's what I am waiting for now so to top back up again but I may have to wait a while, but it will happen for sure.
I bought these many years ago at about 24p, I remember my target being 50p so I sold a few. My next target was £1, so I sold a few more, I got a bit cocky then and upped my target to £2 which they hit while I was at Trent Bridge seeing the Aussies bowled out for 60, I was too excited to care about the shares but I have just sold another batch. This share just keeps giving and I intend to keep dipping in and enjoying the profits. I used to beat myself up when shares rose after I sold, not any more, life's too short.
well they will evenchualy but what years the question,dont forget theres a near 5% divi next year.whilst there printing money its got to go somewhere and a lots gone into the footsie.
but more interesting imo is the first salvo has been fired at the btl market via tax changes and the ability to off set mortgage interest on it.id not be surprised at further attacks and more tightening of rules regarding leverage.
Interesting, Spider 69.. I have probably made about 50k over the past 3 years-a lot to some and little to others. I started trading out of boredom and then it just became good fun. I can't complain. I managed to pay off my flat but am now looking to buy a house. I need to be patient now to buy back in. Any chances this will ever reach £3, or is that just a pipe dream?
