Nil Desperandum Woody, I'm still lurking here. Does nuking microwave meals and takeaway pizza remnants from the night before class as 'cooking'? :o)

chart looking very solid. Woody, am currently reading your eponymous book by Reginald Hill (Dalziel & Pascoe fame) - a big tome but a good read.

yep i don't doubt that the cakes sales will improve with decent weather but i also feel when we've had such a prolonged bad spell there's room for a treat on the table, just a little something to cheer you up;-)) Not heard from the boffster for a while has he sold up and hibernated;-) b2 you're most welcome. Like to flash the pans myself, can't let mrs woodcutter in the kitchen, to delicate:-)) Indian and Thai my favourites and the umbrian italiano stuff too. Not a cake baker though, that i do leave to the wife. Aleman anymore thoughts on PNX since the results. Post on the thread and i'll pick it up there if you have. The share price looked to have broken out of it's immediate range. Woody

With hedging and the fall in the £ it is hard to know how it might affect FIF in the short term.

(Just reread the posts. I hope it is obvious that they were in jest as it's possible the tone might be misconstrued.) Can't believe how far the food commodities prices have fallen. It must be starting to benefit FIF's margins. I am actually starting to look at commodities trusts while they are beaten down.

That is why the Thorntons range does well - I you want to treat yourself you want something that actually tastes good.

Ah ... so I need perform the masculine trait of growing my own veg to meet with the approval of the grand poo-ba of pseudochauvenism. I shall put it on my to do list.

I assume that you realised that I wasn't being serious O purple one! I too gave up the day job when I started making serious money on the stockmarket. Yes I can cook but only like traditional British food and grow fruit and vegetables rather than buy them. Everyone in my house cooks whether they want to or not since I do not want my children to join the ranks of the heat up and assemble 'cooks'

Do you think all full-time private investors look like hairy bikers? I couldn't live off the wife's cooking. Being a full-time investor gives me time so I do all the cooking which means I do all the shopping as well in order to get decent ingredients to make a week's worth of good eating - Mexican (tacos, fajitas), Italian (a few pasta dishes, pizza from scratch) and Indian (korma, dahl) cooking styles being my favourites but I can make a decent Yorkshire pud, too. I've lived with 3 women and I've done the cooking in each case. Can you cook or are you a wimp?

Good grief aleman I didn't take you for The sort of wimp that does the wife's shopping! I thought more like the hairy beer swilling biker whose wife does what she is told!!

I have to agree, I've always noticed people far more likely to get their cakes out in hot weather :-) Looks a good time to buy here.

The poor weather early spring will hopefully get people in the shops looking for the odd cake treat. I think you have that the wrong way around if I understand correctly. Winter weather doesn't suit FIF much although sales seem to hold up well enough at a steady baseline with habitual bread and cake buyers. What does suit FIF is warm sunny weather, especially coupled with holiday periods, where you get extra sales from the ladies who lunch/barbie/garden party/picnic types, i.e. pretty much everyone. I did our weekly shop today and bought extra fruit,salad veg, smoked salmon, bread, juices, weak beers and treats of ice cream and fruit tarts while leaving out pies, sunday roast, soups and stuff to make stews and curries. The sunny dry weather since the start of April and, particularly, the warm sunny weather since the Mayday bank holiday should be right up FIF's street. It is probably no coincidence that FIF's shares have been creeping up slightly over this period. We seem to have (only) a couple of weeks like this each year in recent times but this year seems to be a bit more promising as we've had two sunny bank holidays so far and there are hopes of more. The medium term summer weather forecast is good, although I would agree the success rate of such forecasts is probably not that high. (Living memory suggests better summers after long snowy winters. Winter was October to early April in the North and I've never known as much snow before New Year, even if I have memories of several very snowy Marches prior to this year's.) Fingers crossed.

very quiet board. the old tumble weed will be drifting! Near the half year end and i'm expecting a very decent H2 this year. The poor weather early spring will hopefully get people in the shops looking for the odd cake treat. Sp trying it's best to breakout. jp Read Marber found it very interesting but a bit complex. If you were to follow his style i think you'd need a lot of graph paper:-) thought he was a bit conceited too but a refreshing change in style. Lauding himself as being voted the best TA, 6 years running in the 60's/70's wasn't surprising as there was pretty much no one else applying that method. Thanks for recommending though i have it on my desk top, there are certain parts i thought very informative. recently bought Grimes "the art and science of TA" and Nison "Japanese candlestick charting" that section in Marber was the most interesting and i've bought this book on the back of Malcolm Pyers recommendation but Marber seems to rate it highly too.

woody marber on markets, brian marber then, when you get to the point where the limiting factor is you, Super Trader by Van K Tharp Van Tharp's latest, Trading Beyond the Matrix is brilliant imo, but it isn't what most traders expect it to be

b2 Read Trading for a living by Dr Alexander Elder and a fantastic reference book is Technical Analysis of the markets by Murphy. I have moved from a sceptic to a convert. So much so that Mrs woodcutter had been gently persuaded to buy me a highly recommended book on candlestick patterns for my birthday early next week. I'm sure she's elated about that! It's not science it's logic. I've found the ADX pattern particularly strong so i look for that signal and see if the others align. i started after reading Malcolm Pryors, The financial spread bettors handbook some months ago. I've had a bit of a desire to trade for a while and might just open a sb account later this year. Anyway I've had both the other books for a while but never got around to reading them. Elder really fascinated me, it's so well put together so i guess i'm now a TA novice. As i said fundamentals first and foremost though. lets hope we continue to make a few bob;-) WC post note: have a look at srt, be interested in your thoughts, I've been building there, this link might help.

no advice intended b2 but if these signals are confirmed with a little more buying i have quite a bit of cash at present and i just might buy more myself. i'd like to see the adx divergence stronger and the williams to push up a bit more, with ema's confirming break through. I'm using a range of oscillators at present for reversals and back testing them on many of my stocks. I'm amazed at how accurate they are, there have been a few failures but most of the time provided a number of indicators show the move then it generally does happen, you can't rely on a single indicator though that's very dangerous and misleading as i've found on the backtests. I don't think it will take the place of fundamentals in my stock selection but it will have a place determining my timing for buying/selling going forward. The signals can also reverse quite quickly, the secret seems to be to identify when the indicators are multiple and at their strongest. There have been a number of clear strong buy signals on FIF: Just before july last year early september last year early january this year This has been in a trading range since the beginning of march so oscillators for turning points seem to be best indicators. Once it begins to trend upwards (assumption!) then i'll look at trending indicators to determine if/when the trend will break. As i said it's my new toy. welcome back Woody

TA looks interesting Average direction index crossing MACD crossing and Williams and RSI on the rise breaking thro' EMA's I would guess a move to 55p would confirm these signals. TA it's my new toy!

WHen a share has had gains like this one in the last few years, you will always get selling a few weeks either side of the tax year end as investors utilise their capital gains allowances. The 5p/10% or so we have lost would not be unusual for a share that has quadrupled in 4 years and is unlikely to indicate any fundamental weakness or change of trend. I would be surprised if it got to 45p though. A 20% fall would have me wondering what was going on. I would have thought institutional buyers/Ruffer might be looking at this as a chance to buy more in volume without driving the price up too much.
