Defensive Buying - week ending 16 June 2017

Monday, 19th June 2017 12:57 - by Moosh

The number of shares in a defensive buy is dictated primarily by the asking price and the buy/sell commission that you pay – for simplification I will assume that the buy and sell commissions are the same value and will provide a maximum number of shares to buy for a single commission of £5.25, £7.50, £10.00, and £12.00.

If your commission is not shown here, then round up to the nearest commission level and use that as a potential maximum number of shares to buy, assuming you are happy with the fundamentals at the latest time and price given. I will be adding more companies to the Defensive Buy list when they are ready to appear on it and NOT before!
