RE: Any tips on when to sell a share ? lol08 Apr 2021 16:09
Herman , i agree with your reply. Unfortunately i think i just panicked slightly. I was very 50/50 what to do ( as you can tell from my heading of previous messages!) . Good luck to all Rank shareholders.
got a bit scared today having seen the price lower from 190sh to 173 in short time. Sold out at 1.73 but have done very well with just over 60% profit. Could move a fair amount either way from here short term, much still depending on Covid news. GLA DYOR

bailiff , having now read some of your history, your post makes sense to me. Looking back at you're "Style" , I probably did take it too literally without this previous knowledge. I do have a good sense of humour , - just caught me a bit unawares as most posts generally are more serious on these boards. I want everyone to do well as we're all here with hope of profits. Keep smiling & good luck.

I'm holding a paper profit of over 140% in 6 months of holding TLW shares. Still people seem to think they're so slow and boring -- manipulated ? Do they expect increase every hour and to double in a week ? You can always put it into a bank or building society and gain a guaranteed 0.01 % in a year !! I consider TLW to be one of my more volatile & riskier shares and therefore do not invest too deep as I'm a cautious long term holder. IMOA, short term movements are purely guesswork but percentages more against you with higher costs which occur whichever direction it goes. Long term or trading , either way can work or otherwise.! Your money, your decisions. DYOR IMAO GLA
I always intended to be LTH but grew too much fear over results & sold on 12th Feb. Happy to have bought same holding back at very small loss this morning. Glad i missed the stress of the last 12 days or so ! Hope now to continue with a more relaxing holding here onwards. I've done very well on AML so far and relieved to be back for the acceleration !!
RE: Manipulated,. Suitor. Funding. What gives?18 Feb 2021 22:32
Whether it will reach 1.20 or 1.60 first, i wouldn't even like to guess. Covid situation likely to be the major factor of fluctuations either way. What i am more confident about is that in one years time believe it will be at least 1.50 & hope for significantly more. I'd consider another top up below 1.20 but want it to go North rather than South ! Irrespective of the stock market , lets hope life can get nearer the old normal ASAP for every ones benefit..

it's very difficult to predict short term movements or even to know why with shares like Rank that don't get talked about so much. I'm still looking to put more money back into shares as i'm still only 50% invested(50% Cash). I've been looking to top up RNK for a few months and was waiting to see if they'd drop to around £1.10 Luckily (So far!) i decided to top up at a much higher price of £1.26 on Monday. My thinking was mainly long term but also the Markets were strong with many shares gaining biggish % rises. Hopefully the easing of restrictions is getting closer and so i decided to pay more to avoid risk of missing out. I never expected to be £1.40 now & would have felt ok if it was still £1.26 Much depends on how smooth or otherwise the easings go. It's interesting to read peoples ideas but it's nearly always guesses or speculation with some or no truth to it. Many also write biased to which way they want the shares to go. Unfortunately by the time official RNS is known the price has usually already reacted. LTH GLA
Don't remind me -- that was about the time and price when i sold mine ! lol Can't get them all right but it's annoying seeing them go up so much as soon as you sell. With hindsight when you think about all the extra online orders and parcel deliveries . Easy to pick winners after the race though. GLA , come on PFC !
Rockon , I have several small holdings that i spread about for safety. I'll put a couple of thousand in most but restrict to £1k if i consider them to be more risky. I thought AML was very risky but couldn't resist it after researching. I've done very well on them up to now, effectively turning £800 into a current paper value of £2,800. Can't believe how well they've done but intend to keep for a few years ( If i can resist pressure/temptations). I almost sold when they quickly dropped from £20+ to just over £16 but managed to hold on. Good luck with your decisions !
I hold a small number of shares currently showing good 40% paper profit. Just topped up as i want a slightly larger holding in case the general market decides to mark everything up at some point due to assessing been nearer to another step to normality. When these things happen it's usually a sudden jump one way or another and easy to miss out on. I still think these should be ok long term even if this hoped for jump up wasn't to happen.
I find i do better on the buying and usually when i get the selling badly wrong it's by selling too early. I often find i do this if i've been well down on a share that recovers. You're so relieved to recover all or most of the paper loss that you sell. The share then continues to climb only much stronger. A recent example of this with me was The Works. Not easy though is it. I find reading these BB's interesting (& sometimes amusing!) although try my best not to let them effect my decisions.
The most important thing to realise is something you would think is ridiculous if you've no share experience (With established shares anyway). It's not which ones you choose as much as when you choose them. A five year old picking 10 shares at random but at the best time will do far better than an experienced investor picking 10 of their choice near a market top. I'm fairly cautious but even been careful (Sometimes regretfully), i'm currently up 45% in less than a year due to timing buying (Not as much as i wished (Over cautious!) after covid collapse. I've missed so many chances of increased profits but have learnt to accept this as inevitable when you spread for safety. I only worry about the overall result as while still trying to get every decision correct, it's not going to happen. I hold RNK & PFC but not heavily. Will be happy for RNK to go up but will consider top up if they get below 1.10 Good Luck !!
Sageman , yes i remember penny share guide alright. What a load of xxxx . Paid for guides to lose me thousands. Must have invested in about 8 different tips that all led to 100% or near total losses. I was younger , naive & less experienced in shares then. It taught me some harsh lessons and I've generally done reasonably well since.
Yes, the sooner they're able to re-open , obviously the better. Good thing is that their businesses are still able to operate easily online unlike some. May drop further with week markets but like yourself, i'm fairly confident on 1 year plus timeline. Maybe sooner if vaccines work their magic.
These have now come back a fair bit from recently reaching £1.60sh. Short term they'll probably be volatile to the fluctuating Covid vibes . Once confidence of a decent outcome increases the general market will go up quickly and Rank should gain more than most . Why , because the elderly (& some younger) will love to get back to their bingo with the extra money they've saved. Similarly, the younger will be tempted back to casino's. I hope i'm right in predicting that these shares will reach £2 at some time within 2 years . Could be a bit of a rocky ride though. No one really knows so please DYOR and make your own decisions with your own money.
