It's no "secret". It's a high-risk share with a volatile price owned by one capricious man in a cyclical industry. I've waited 2 years to get even close to my 2019 buy-in price and have only just broken even.
Abba. Jesus wept - you shouldn't be investing if you don't understand the difference between Woodford buying piddly little companies after he met some bloke down the pub in Oxford and Anderson/Slater buying some of the biggest growth companies in the world.
I'm finger poised for opening of US markets - under GBP 10 is a buy. If you're here for mid to long-term gains this is a sweet few days. Will continue to buy with any discount over 7-8%. Discounts are how to make money (with a growth fund)
Sorry what's scary? You think Amazon is going bust? Alibaba and Tencent are going to be taken over by the Chinese government? That Illumina are shutting up shop? SMT and others had a stellar 2020 - a correction was obvious and buying with a 9% discount is amazing. They've traded at a premium for most of the last 2 years so fill yer boots. I think it's likely that this will go down much more( maybe GBP 8??) but this is due to inexperienced investors obsessing over Tesla and "tech" and panic selling. It's obvious from the premium/discount figures that EWI and USA were too expensive and have corrected. SMT has been caught up with this and is now a bargain. Unless you need the money this year, don't worry.
