|sold my JEL
I think the long winter will be costly as they ve been using diesel to generate elecricity while the new power cable is being installed.|
Yes - wow - it adds up doesn't it?
I guess a lot of investors never stop to add up the cost of their trading activity but they should do - I bet they would be surprised and a bit shocked at the money involved. It can really accumulate over time.
WB makes a good point about this:
He says that investors should be issued with a card when they start investing. The card is punched every time they make an investment - but they are only allowed to make 20 punches in the card during their life time.
Buffett says those investors would end up very wealthy. Why? Because with so few investment opportunities they would spend far more time looking for a really good opportunity that they really understood and which had great and realistic potential. They would really do their homework and spread their net far and wide to find an outstanding investment idea.
Each investment would be such a rare and valuable chance to improve their wealth that they would make a lot of effort in not wasting it or getting it wrong or investing in a second rate opportunity that might gain a little bit but not much.
Buffett says these investors would end up far more wealthy than others who could make all the investments they wanted and therefore made them without giving them much thought or really trying to find an outstanding opportunity.
When I read that comment by WB it really made me think - and I realised how flippantly I invest at the first thing that grabs my attention. And then soon after I have to reverse the trade when I it becomes obvious there is some negative aspect to the company that even a little bit of research would easily have revealed if I had done it before I made my purchase.
Good idea for a thread.
I think some of your price targets might be achievable especially in the event of stock market crash. In those conditions even excellent companies can be temporarily offered at ridiculously low prices.
As WB says - he always likes to buy things in a sale.
I think that can be a really good opportunity to get on board with some great companies. Its having the patience to wait that I find tricky.
Good luck - I will check back from time to time.
|bought STOB at 85p for looonnnnngggg term.|
|Will there be any low price purchases due to the food scandle?|
|Purchased a handfull mrw- morrisons this morning at 251p
very low on the 52 week average.
I'll hold them forever.|
|Thanks TLATSATT-everyone feels the same about TON except myself. We need this court case cleared. I'm very confident they will win. I mean you don't go to Court unless you have a cast iron case. If they lose then they're still substantially undervalued. I have no doubt that price competition on MVHR from Nuaire is having a detrimental effect on their business so we need resolution.But regardless, TON still have a substantial margin of safety so I'm very relaxed about their current situation.
Record was a classic case of the Market's obsession with short term performance and price moves whilst totally ignoring the long term value of the business.IMHO like all value share purchases it was an easy decision to make.Record may have closed their active currency fund, based around carry trades-ie borrowing in low interest currencies to lend to high interest ones but this is a time tested technique and I have no doubt that it will be back.
thanks for the ton heads up.
I just dont feel compelled to buy in yet.
I will keep an eye on it.
Record did came up on a low pe, high divi screen but I didnt understand it.
you made a good move there though well done mate.|
|mgns purchased today. at 523p low pe, 8% dividend very low on 52 week average.
due to cuts and compressing margins in construction and service businesses I dont expect fire works but in 2-3 years It may be paying a near 10% divi on my original purchase price.|
H1 2012/13 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS
Profit before tax up 3.4% to £111.1m
South West Water up 10.0% to £83.8m
Viridor down 26.5% to £22.5m
Earnings per share before deferred tax up 3.4% to 24.3p(1)
Interim dividend per share up 6.6% to 8.76p
I have to admit. I didnt realise the viridor division made up such a high % of group profits.
For me this makes PNN not quite the safe investment I thought it was.
Having said that. Any investment can be attractive if the price is right.
On tv today there was a repeat of - Undercover boss. the suject being Viridors boss going undercover to see the business in operation from the workers point of view. What struck me was how competetive the industry is.
Any sqeeze on margins will be hard felt on the bottom line.
Long term this should be a great business.
I will continue to be very greedy and wait to see if the price comes down down.
currently today its up 4% to 622p|
|my first suggestion is PNN target 500p
low 52 week average.
typical over reaction to short term profit warning within subsidiary.
will prob be shuffled out of the ftse 100 in december - sells from index trackers chould reduce price to my target of £5
As above, keep suggestions simple please.
good luck all|
This thread is for anyone wishing share 'contrarian' ideas for low priced ISAable shares.
metrics could be low p/e to peers, low price for the 52 week average or low market cap to assets etc. They dont just have to be value based shares.
In the main I'm looking for great, easy to understand companies at a low price, to purchase for the long term.
Long term rewards in the stock market should come from the purchase of dividend paying companies at a low price with a durable business that will stand the test of time.
Im not looking for Oil (I have enough already), tech, new drug etc or anything suggesting an imminent up surge in revenue.
companies that have a good record of profit and a well covered dividend but trading at a low price due to a special situation are most welcome.
Thanks in advance
p.s Please keep them simple for me. :)
Wise words from Charlie Munga:
