BRCI (Commodities Income) continues to climb, while still IMHO remaining fair value.

Thinking about value makes some sense at this point.

Nobody watching Hurricane Energy (HUR)? Up 50% this year so far. Lots more to come in this multi bagger.

Definitely, multibagger stocks will lead to less worries and will give us great return with minimum risk.

Seems like a minnow (2 million mkt cap!), announcement today suggest its growth strategy seems to be working

I also like to follow badly beaten stocks in 2016/17. Lately there had been some interest on it. Was there any major reason for its poor performance?

The USA

It seems still the consumer staple sector, has been benefiting from the uptick in the U.S. economy.Consumer staples index led the USA market last week.

Frontier market

It seems different fund managers and investors prefer different destinations.

Recently purchased 271 Shell B shares at £25.60, price now sitting at £22.50 each. I'm hoping to hold on to these long term and reinvest the dividends into whatever looks interesting at the time. Shell appear to have a solid track record of dividend payments so this is helping to take a bit of the sting out of seeing the £800+ drop in value!

I've got a 'fun money' account I'm trying a new tack with.

– Half the account's in 3x ETFs, following monthly trends, systematic;
– Half's in a handful of quality stocks to buy and hold.

The ETFs this month have been US Financials, Consumer Discretionary and Healthcare.

The first stock pick is Diageo .. Looking to add Johnson & Johnson and Microsoft.


Hoping to find 6x stocks .. Most seem to be looking at annual returns of between 5 and 6% (based on FCF growth) – and similar on PE .. Unilever got a little expensive, but I'd be looking for a point to buy .. I may go for two slightly more off-the-radar stocks


Thank you for sharing with us in another post, which ETFs you hold (or recently held) . What sources do you use please for picking the sectors and individual ETFs?

There's a saying - "Never sell Shell".

I top-sliced at £23.30 and regretted it as the share price rose. Now it's back below where I sold at, so now feeling a bit smug. It's all relative.

To me, Shell appears to be a good income stock today, but I worry about their long term future. Whilst they're trying to diversify away from oil, I'm not sure that they'll be the same quality stock in the future. Are electric car charging points and electricity retail a sound investment?

I think that they're a good income stock for the short to medium term, but longer term it's more uncertain, so be prepared to bale out when things go downhill.

I still see good potential in value-oriented stocks in Europe, the U.S and abroad. Stocks should be better than bonds and commodities once again in 2018. Attractively valued markets could have more upside potential. Fund managers, money managers and investors are looking for value now.
