|+0.52% to be precise pat.|
|Our investments market performed against the FTSE100 today with a (0.10%) decline as opposed to (0.14%) for FTSE100. We had 17 Shares Up, 28 Down & 5 Unchanged.
The week as a whole was fairly resilient with our investments declining (01.52%) which was a moderate outperformance against the FTSE100 which was Down (01.91%) (7338:7198). Overall, our assets were Down (00.71%) on the week. The calendar year performance table is shown below. Note that the historic annual dividend yields for FTSE100 (+3.72%), FTSE AS (+3.46%) & FTSE250 (+2.62%) will be apportioned at the rate of one twelfth on the last complete week of each month so e.g. FTSE100 performance will be increased by 00.31% on 27 Jan :-
FTSE100~~~~~+00.77%~~(7143:7198 + 00.00% Dividend Yield)
FTSE AS~~~~~+00.77%~~(3873:3903 + 00.00% Dividend Yield)
Videans~~~~~+00.72%~~(Being under invested helped for a change)
FTSE250~~~~~+00.41%~~(18077:18151 + 00.00% Dividend Yield)
Overall stock level increased to 57.3% from 47.1% at the end of last week.|
|If AMFW goes below its current interim base of 445.3p, then that would be of some concern. Its current three wave sequence (395.5p:463.8p:431.9p:472.4p:445.3p:505.5p) looked ripe for a fourth & further waves but it may have gone far enough, for now, in the absence of some proof of recovery news. It could put in another series of 3 waves as some kind of holding position. In which case, I would be looking to Add @ about 420p.|
|Underperformed the Markets today by some margin.|
|Any thoughts in where AMFW might be heading? As low as 400p again?My frustration earlier this week (and thoughts of selling) of AMFW has changed to one of wondering if this company is undervalued and a very good buy at some point. Am considering buying a fair few to average down.|
|Further general market weakness today but our shares were less affected than previous days and ended up slightly outperforming FTSE100 with a decline of (0.40%) as opposed to a decline of (0.54%) for FTSE100. We had 16 Shares Up, 33 Down and 1 Unchanged. Added to both L100 & VUKE so stock level climbed to 57.0%.|
|Third day of a down wave then for FTSE!
My give back target of c(30.00%) could be too much bearing in mind that S4's concluding Up wave(s) is likely to be shallow so am revising down to c(25.00%) giving a short-term target of c7185. A third wave in S4 would probably be about +02.60% leading to c7372 and a fourth wave is also quite likely prior to the inevitable Segmental correction.|
|Been having another good look at AMFW and it will most likely stay in my portfolio! As you mention, little surprised it has not recovered more in line with the oil price. Maybe if Finals look good the answer is to stick with it and average down. Certainly one I'm monitoring closely. The jury's out on this one!|
|I reduced on BMS today (got rid of 20%) following its 13.6% rally from 273p to 310p...our average remains 324.7p. I'm now light enough again not to be too concerned one way or the other.
However, I was viewing AMFW more as a longer term recovery holding with likely progress now that POO has somewhat recovered so I'm slightly surprised you want rid. Our average is still OK @ 472p and I actually nearly Added today on the slip to 456.5p.
The 24 Jun 2016 interim low of 353.3p was followed by a 7 wave advance to 631p on 11 Oct 2016 and that built on the initial rally to 520p following the current actual low of 321.6p on 24 Feb 2016. Following 631p, the share price slipped further than expected to 395.5p on 28 Nov but that followed a lack of real progress (so far) highlighted in the trading update of 27 Oct 2016. However, 395.5p could still turn out to be a tertiary base if there are real signs of progress shown in the 2016 Finals report (10th March last year).|
|With the Markets near record highs, individual shares in my portfolio are just about all in profit.
The only two spoiling the party are AMFW and BMS, which I'm currently sitting on respective losses of -24% and -23%
Will happily bail out of both when either of them have a good run. Will invest money (most likely) in another Financial stock, which I am undeweight in. And probably take another punt on a Small Cap. Hopefully with better timing than my BMS purchase!|
|Pearson shares fall 30% on profits and dividend warning
"With the group fearing that textbooks and other educational equipment would enter terminal decline, Pearson took the bold step of changing tack,"
Unless they can make big changes my take is the group could go into terminal decline. And once they have sold their remianing stake in Pengiun, they will have no 'family silver' left to sell.
So glad i sold in 2015|
|Thx for that overview, Gateside.
I thought I might catch you up after yesterday but, after today's strong showing, I think you are now favourite to extend your lead at the end of the week. Still very early days though.|
|17 out of 24 were up. Claws back yesterday's losses. Re: PSON - I work in Education and I see constant changes in Curriculums, this often means schools, universities etc are reluctant to invest in Educational Resources which often are pricey, for fear that they will be too quickly outdated. Also so many resources can be obtained free on the internet. It's a Market that has changed an awful lot and I feel Pearson are not one step ahead of the curve and it's becoming harder for them to make a profit.|
|Many heavyweights went m.i.a. yesterday but they were stronger today and, by contrast, a lot of our shares lost traction ending up moderately underperforming FTSE100 with a flat day as opposed to a +0.38% gain for FTSE100. We had 25 Shares Up, 23 Down and 2 Unchanged. Stock level remains at 54.2%.|
|Yes, it seems that educational material especially for HE is not the growth business perhaps it should be, particularly in America. Is it that PSON's approach is too old hat, do you think, Gateside? Maybe Prof. Invisage has some experience in this area also and can elucidate further?|
|Never understood why PSON sold FT What a great paper|
|Thanks for the heads up re PSONNasty looking trading update. Glad to be well clear. Poor management over recent years, sold off too many good parts of the business.|
|The earlier visit to 7218 means that FTSE100 has extended its Down wave to 2 days but, thus far, still only a (20.15%) give back of 6679:7354.|
|Bet you're glad to be out of PSON, Gateside?|
|Thanks for the analysis|
|For me, the main takeaway today relating to FTSE100 is that it is 1 day into a Down wave that has, so far, resulted in a modest (19.85%) give back of the prior 28 day second principal Up wave (6679:7354) that put on 10.11%. Note that there was actually a zero day Down wave after the initial 6 days Up but that is best ignored in the light of the strength of the continuation wave and the difficult to breech gap that has been established as a consequence.
My guess is that it will give back just c(30.00%) over the next few days before resuming the rally and making new highs. My initial give back target is therefore c7152. After that, possibly only 1 more Up wave will be required to reach the high for Segment 4 (c+10.50% to c7378 was my last estimate) although FTSE could just as easily put in a couple more waves and put on in excess of 11.00% for S4.
A correction only really becomes viable once this extra wave base or bases has been established and I now think the correction is likely to be only of the Segmental variety with a further, fifth Segment (S5) to follow before a Phase correction.
So, once the real weakness starts, it will probably only result in a Segmental correction of c(55.00%) so if c7378 does become the top then FTSE would have put on c701 points in S4 and would then give back c(386) points leading to c6992 resulting in a decline of about (05.23%).|
|There should be a trading update from BMS soon.|
|Yes, really wanted to sell BMS today but decided it could be a genuine move based on improved business performance so have decided to hold for a while longer at least.|
|Nevertheless, today's weakness is welcome and I have Added to all of our cash account trackers (L100, VUKE, SWDA & SJPA) so our two cash accounts are now collectively 35.3% invested whilst our overall portfolio has risen to 54.2% invested.
Today, our investments have significantly outperformed FTSE100 with a decline of just (0.51%) as opposed to (1.46%) for FTSE100. We had 19 Shares Up, 29 Down and 2 Unchanged.|
|Nice performance from BMS|
