mole-man. You make a very good point. But my point is this. To make money on he stock market in the long run you have to make about 5 to10% per year including divi's to make a profit after costs (stamp duty, &dealing costs) To do this, holding shares in several company's is only possible if you are one of the lucky few who can beat the market (by definition means, you know better than most every body else) If however you can pick 1 winner (vodafone perhaps) then it is very possible. The more company's you hold shares in, the more you pay in costs. We can all pretend how clever we are at buying & selling shares, but come on?? it's just bull?? Still good luck, but the odds are against you.
seen it done it. As you said in your last reply to me, you have neither seen it, or done it. But spreading your bets, is just like losing a little often, instead of all in one go. What is wrong with you lot? Try positive thinking, or just buy some granny bonds.
robleo oh dear, oh dear. What advice are you giving me then? I think the vod price will rise, so I plan to buy more shares. Simple? If it falls, then I won't do a moaning Mikey, if it rises, I would gladly buy you a drink. As the saying goes, if you cant afford to lose, then don't gamble! Lucky me eh!! The more you spread, the more you lose. Its like backing every horse in the grand national??!! I have made a lot of money on the stock market over the years, but this is the vod forum, so I am only talking about vodafone & I am not going to pretend that I am in profit with vod, but as I have said, I am a medium to long term share holder, & can afford to hold on. But of course (unlike some moaners on here) am willing to take the risk. Of course I wish I hadn't bought at £2+ but come on? Think about that one?? oh, dear oh dear???
Sorry about 3 posts on the trot, but I am waiting funds 40k to top up. Ok so call me bullish, That is me. I think we will get back to 1.60 & up to £2 not to far away? Of course I could be wrong? Just do your own thinking?????? DYOT.
Ski slope fall , Blame the yanks, up almost 3p then dives to up 2p, so unfair. Just in case you are missing your old friend?? Mikey. He will be back. In the meanwhile, £2 shop here we go? Cloth cap for the g/ national. (my choice) Think positive? Just don't take the Mikey! Just do your own!!! whatever!
mole-man. You say the markets will assume the fed will have to raise rates sooner, but then you say you think, with deep analysis they wont, so are you saying you know better than the markets? If so, good on you, I wish I did! Keep your deep analysis coming though.
Hi Narcus.. I did realise that. I meant what, or perhaps why? do you seem to assume that it will go tits up on Tuesday? It may do of course, but I hope it doesn't, but we shall see. Have a good Easter.
Moaning robleo? No. doesn't quite have the same ring to it? The irony is Mikey has begged me to filter him for years now, & when I finally do ???! In the words or the terminator though, he will be back. Mikey has gone before, but always comes back. I have promised myself I will not read any more of his posts, so I am relying on all you lot posting, to guess, not very difficult though. Still what have I learnt today? Well apparently according to carrington, the square root of ****** is ****** & everybody has one ********s. So obviously a very clever person? But D**R. on that!
Rich The Newbie. Ok to my non supporters, I did have a struggle to find some support, but you made my point perfectly. As for me generalising, of course I do, because I am not an expert & have never said I am. I own a lot of vod shares, so I tend to be generally positive, why not?? I gather Mikey has moved on? I don't know? because I have stopped reading his posts. You can all always do your own research I suppose?!?!
Carrington. If you seriously think that someone can take you to court for posting on here, you really are living in a fantasy world, along with all all the other DYOR posters on here. Total nonsense. BUY VODAFONE. IT WILL DOUBLE VERY SOON! COME ON. TAKE ME TO COURT!? Give us a break? As for caveat, another meaningless, in word, expression you have picked up. How about talking in plain English??
Why do so many of you insist on putting dyor in your posts, give us a break!! Patronising or what?? Do you have a dyor key on your device? Please come up with something more original?? Almost as bad as the constant L.O.L. comment! Sorry but it does get a bit tedious. Try talking in plain English, It might take a bit more thought, but whats the hurry?? Good luck anyway!! Sorry I should have said G.L.A.
He was last seen at the top of the White Cliffs of Dover, mumbling something about doing an impression of the vod sp falling, I think he might be waiting for the U.S. markets to open? Lets hope for his sake the sp continues to rise?! What would we do without him?
Hi robleo. The vaccine roll out in the U.K. is fantastic, & something we should be very proud of, unfortunately 25 miles from the cliffs of Dover we have a big problem called Europe & there very slow rollout, & as vodafone is very much a European company that worries me. I Can't wait to go on holiday to Europe, Snow or sun, but It's all a bit iffy. As I Write this , add's are popping up for Majorca just to rub it in! But it's my back garden for the time being.
