Looking increasingly likely Ashtead (first purchased at £5) will break out into a new trading range
as did Ferg (£33) recently...

Good to see you back matey !

My Sipp has recently invested in Ashtead, already nice up. Solid divi cover.

Read a lot about Giles Hargreave at Marlborough but for whatever reason have not succumbed.

50k tony! Nice, guess you are slicing the number of shares today? do tell what your buying with the wad!


Tom, LSE or NYSE?

With the likes of Domino's I'm never sure which stock people mean.



Inc should give it away. NYSE its the master all domino's worldwide.

I like the plc as well

Thanks Tom :)

Just to avoid starting a thread, with NYSE stocks is there any more to it than using a platform that lets you buy them?

Of course, trading fees, but nothing else to be aware of vs. UK stocks so far as buying/owning?

You have to fill out a W-8BEN form usually .. If you don't, there'll be a hefty withholding tax on income (there'll be some tax on income anyway).

Otherwise they're as easy to hold as anything .. Obviously denominated in dollars, and different trading hours

Thanks, the platform prompted for the W-8BEN as part of signup so I should be good there, just wanted to be clear there was no other gotcha's to be aware of beyond the obvious ones (currency, hours etc.).

Pruned at 4305 a bit more of the 20% gain in our Rio ISA shares since last month's contribution and switched to BT at a wonderful price of 204. Further falls welcome.

Top-sliced MCRO on the rise this morning and have a limit order in for more BT at 202p.

Bought CRST on the drop again, down 14%
Will sell again if they bounce nicely, otherwise see them as reasonable holding material over the longer term

Followed suit and sliced RIO again @ £43.60. Can't bring myself to top-up BT yet, so topped-up VOD instead.

Running BLT at present, but will tighten stop a little.

Second guessed my other buy, didn't you?

Telecoms seem to be 180 degree out of phase with miners and pharma at the moment. That's the way I like them.

I think he just wants me to top-up FGT with my recently realised mining profits!

Why do old men, hitherto clean shaven, suddenly sprout beard, broadcasting their greying demise into senility?
You'd think they'd have the decency to rub some boot polish Rigsby style in whilst coining in the commission from their bond proxy funds.

The dentist beard – particularly greying – expresses knowledge and wisdom .. You can see George Clooney attempting the same thing – arguably not as successfully.

Grey beards have been a symbol of wisdom since antiquity – and you can even see Nick Train's track record improving with his grey coverage.

Dare I say this is why you shouldn't be trading against people like him .. If you can't gauge facial hair accurately, how are you going to value a company Disney?

After reading recent posts I've formed some of my own observations below.
Firstly BT seems to be in some form of death spiral - perhaps nudged by reports of it considering a transfer of hard assets to its pension fund.
I just can't believe this will be good for its share price in the near future. So I'm not buying BT yet and I'm also keen on keeping my Rio shares (currently
climbing circa 28% pa trend) alongside my copper miners.
As for Ashtead (+ 32% pa trend ) - a solid Hold. I'm actually expecting a small correction after a 9 day up cycle (100% RSI). I'll review my actions if and when that occurs.
So I'm now left with thanking Dyfed for the prompt on CRST where I too believe the recent price drop is overdone. I'll put a few of those in my locker first thing on Thursday.

Yes, this may well be the moment of 'maximum pessimism', but it isn't all bad news:

If all of this comes to pass, they might well win me back as a customer too...

Finally succumbed to PRSM this morning - thanks John R for your post on the other thread. It's hard to buy when it feels like I may have missed the boat, but it's just a great business and something to hold and add to over the long term.

Following the recovery in Stock pricing, purchases have ceased and this week has seen gentle rotation from Risk to Defensives.

Trimmed
- BRNA (US)
- BRCI (Commodities)
- JRS (Russia)

Increased
+ GRIO (the unloved ground rents)
+ NRR (equally unloved and perhaps misunderstood New River Retail?)

This thread always a must read, replete with investment ideas.
Thanks to the seemingly now absent Micawber?
