5 SHARES FOR 2014
5 SHARES FOR 2014
Happy New Year and Season’s Greetings to all ADVFN readers!
As you are reading this I am probably heading down a massive waterslide in Dubai with my nine-year-old son.
I can't stand UK winters so hopefully we are currently enjoying some warmth and light in a very nice hotel.
It's that time of the year when everyone writes about their favourite picks for next year so well, why not?
Here are five shares that I've bought and hold with anticipation for gains in 2014 and hoping for at least 50% upside from each one, maybe 100%.
FIVE SHARES TO BOOM IN 2014!
1. Seeing Machines (SEE)
Right now it's a small company just scratching a profit. But amazing potential. Spots tiredness in drivers and applications for it everywhere, such as coaches, planes, and the mining sector. It's winning contracts and raised £15m but may need to raise more. The potential is so big. It keeps announcing deals with big companies like Caterpillar and BHP Billiton. Might even treble this one if the deals really come through.
2. MOPOWERED (MPOW)
Floated on the market on Dec 18th.I like the look of its market, right place at the right time I reckon.
The main thrust of the business is making websites compatible to be viewed by mobiles and enabling website owners to make more from mobile phone visitors. I think this is a big business for 2014 and at some point the shares will fly.
3. Vectura (VEC)
Drugs company with a compelling pipeline in the airways area, including asthma. The great thing is it has tons of cash so doesn't look like it will be held back by fundraising. Any approvals will see the price shoot higher. As it has some cash it mean the risk isn't too great here.
4. Pressure Technology (PRES)
This one has a record order book, profits leaping higher, strong dividend rises and very confident statements all lead to a must buy for me.
And despite rises it still looks cheap valued at under 50m. Could easily see 100m cap in 2014 for a double. Wide spread though is a problem so nice to buy on a weak day if possible.
5. Fusionex (FXI)
It's in a big growing sector - enterprise software/Big Data solutions. It likes simplicity like me! It's just launched its new software "Giant".
It's building some decent partnerships and if it continues to announce contract wins the price could double up in 2014. It's the biggest and most liquid of the five.
There you are then. Remember with small high risk companies if things go wrong they can be hard to sell so never buy too many.
Or else you could be celebrating next New Year with a can of coke and a bag of cheese and onion, which is all you'll be able to afford. And just because I bought them doesn't mean you should, do your own research as they say.
Have a brilliant start to the year and see you again here at ADVFN when I get back from Dubai.
