|PKV, you never go broke banking a profit!
OK you may have missed out on MORE but with the correction you see coming You may just be able to get back in at lower prices.
I really enjoy monitoring your thread (as I have for years now!) keep up the good work especially your FTSE predictions, I find these invaluable, thanks for all the "good" information ;-)
All the best|
Are you still about 80% invested?
Which of your stocks, if any, are you thinking of reducing on or even selling?|
|You say you think the Markets about to fall, but your not selling. Throw your money away then. You get real.|
|Invisage.If you want to throw away your profits that's up to you. Doesn't sound like a very sound investment strategy to me!|
|GatesideNothing goes up forever. Get real.Corrections happen. It's part of the process. I just choose to accept it and accept I may experience a loss albeit MTM drop. Other choose to "mitigate" this risk.|
|Invisage if you believe that the Markets will drop - then to not reduce your portfolio is a crazy investment attitude.I'm glad your not managing my portfolio!|
|I have cash building up every month Pat as I have various income streams, it has been a long time since I've added new money to my portfolio though.
It would take quite a hit to the market for me to add new money into the market. I don't like having cash sitting in brokerage accounts to be honest especially in tax wrappers I can't do much about which is why most of the time i prefer to sit still.
Shares can and do drop as you say....I have time to ride it out so will just ride it unless I felt a company would go bust.|
|Sounds like you've got access to substantial additional funds over and above your much vaunted dividend income?
If true, that would make sense of your relaxed attitude to your portfolio being 100% invested!|
|Apparently some are calling for a short term correction to the markets. Got to admit the trackers have been stagnant, and I have considered cutting back.
But on 2nd thoughts I can't be asked.
I am going to stay put and if it drops I will add to my positions.|
|Segmental & Phase tallies for American Indices @ Day 76 & Day c263 respectively :-
Goldman Sachs reckon 2400 for SPX, presumably short-term!|
|Slightly beat the Market today. Thought the Trading update from ABF was really excellent. And they get marked down. The Markets are illogical!|
|The main reason for our underperformance today was the ridiculous reaction to TNI's finals with too much emphasis being placed on the much larger than expected increase in Pension deficit. The share price touched a new interim high of 124p prior to closing @ 107.75p (103p at one stage).
Since the 27 Jul low of 75p, TNI has effectively established 2 Segments (both 5 waves) of gains (73p:111p for 52.1% and 75p:124p for 65.3%). I fancy the share price will now put in a quick fire correction down to c94p and then rally via a third segment of perhaps c60.0% reaching c150p before succumbing to the effects of a market wide correction.|
|Our investments slightly underperformed today with a (0.07%) decline as opposed to a gain of 0.13% for FTSE100. Of our 49 shares, 28 closed Up, 17 Down & 4 Unchanged. Stock level 64.9%.|
|I am reading Buffet's newsletter...there are a few things that stand out
America’s economic achievements have led to staggering profits for stockholders. During the 20th century the Dow-Jones Industrials advanced from 66 to 11,497, a 17,320% capital gain that was materially boosted by steadily increasing dividends. The trend continues: By yearend 2016, the index had advanced a further 72%, to 19,763.
American business – and consequently a basket of stocks – is virtually certain to be worth far more in the years ahead. Innovation, productivity gains, entrepreneurial spirit and an abundance of capital will see to that.
Ever-present naysayers may prosper by marketing their gloomy forecasts. But heaven help them if they act on the nonsense they peddle.
Many companies, of course, will fall behind, and some will fail. Winnowing of that sort is a product of market dynamism.
Moreover, the years ahead will occasionally deliver major market declines – even panics – that will affect virtually all stocks. No one can tell you when these traumas will occur – not me, not Charlie, not economists, not the media. Meg McConnell of the New York Fed aptly described the reality of panics: “We
spend a lot of time looking for systemic risk; in truth, however, it tends to find us.”
During such scary periods, you should never forget two things: First, widespread fear is your friend as an investor, because it serves up bargain purchases.
Second, personal fear is your enemy. It will also be unwarranted. Investors who avoid high and unnecessary costs and simply sit for an extended period with a
collection of large, conservatively-financed American businesses will almost certainly do well.
|What's montyhedge got to do with it!|
|Hard to argue with the world's best investor...|
|Maybe he does!|
|You ought to get commission from Vanguard!|
|Yes, still early days!
Despite the 4 day Down wave for FTSE, the Up trend may not be finished quite yet. The second principal Up wave consisted of 2 sub-waves (6679:6977:6875:7354) so why not a similar outcome for a prospective third with the possibility of a fourth and fifth to follow.
Cannot really see current Up Phase topping before well into April!|
|In addition to my portfolio doing so well last year with a gain of +22.2% many shares had a very strong December, so my year to date for 2017 is comparing to a high point. Therefore, I'm not surprised at the lacklustre start I have to this year. Still time for it to be a successful year.|
|More than happy for the estimates to continue, your usually very close, especially now that you know what's in my portfolio. My reference to BP. & RDSB was in relation to 2017. They have been weak.For the week though it was my miners, HSBA and AMFW that dragged it down.|
|Blimey, sorry about that Gateside!
I suppose the heavy weighting of HSBA, RIO & BLT must have skewed your portfolio's performance further to the downside than I had allowed for. BP. & RDSB were actually not that bad for you this week!
Maybe I should desist with the Estimating?|
