Not sure it is tripe. Seems like a reasonable question. Some have been here longer than others and it makes sense as part of the research to try and use their knowledge. After all it benefits everyone who is invested long or short term if more investors stay and buy more shares. I think that's what helps the SP go up. As you are invested here that will of course help you too.
I have bought one tranche and looking at some more. I know that everyone thinks there will be a takeover and I am sure those that have been here much longer than me are correct. What I do not understand is why, if a takeover is inevitable, at a much higher price, everyone does not just lump in.? Surely it would be a guaranteed profit ( as guaranteed as AIM gets anyway)
Been in here a while now. Watched it rise to £2.00 plus then fall back to below the placing price Didn't sell partly through lack of knowledge and mostly through greed ( hindsight is a wonderful thing) When the news come that the LFT is ready realistically where do people think this will rise too?.
Can I just ask if it is such a certainty that a takeover will happen and the minimal bid seems to be 35p ( though £3.50) would be nice why is everyone not just filling their boots at 18.50. I have bought in at 20p but relatively new to share dealing so frankly do not understand some of my research. Always happy to learn . Should I just go all in assuming I will get back double in the near future?
I could do Rational but I was trying to diversify a little. Also I think bullion is exempt from CGT and I can gift it to the children and keep it out of the estate for IHT ( if I have not gone bust on Aim)
Always difficult to know when to take profit. For newbies I have come up with a formula that seems to work (for me at least) I missed out on "profits" and watched a share price rise and then come back down again several times. What I have come up with is this. Purchase the shares at say £1.00 wait for a 50% increase and then you can sell approx one third of your holding and get back half your stake. This means that you have reduced your risk and of course your average SP is drastically reduced. It won't work for everyone but It is a formula that has helped me not to lose money and I am now in a healthy profit. I always find buying the shares was easy it was knowing when to sell that is difficult. Obviously the formula won't work for everyone but I have quickly learnt not to be greedy.
