Oh dear, the LP has got stuck. Perhaps if you listened to Minerve you may learn something. Here is a lesson getting: there have been studies done that show having more than about 15-20 stocks in your portfolio doesn't decrease risk any further through diversification. If it doesn't why bother? To invest properly you need to follow stocks very closely. If you don't, you are really speculating. Most people would struggle with 10 if they followed this advice from investors like Buffett. 20 stocks is 5% each. Having less than 1% after 18 months suggests you are probably overweight too far in cash or a particular stock elsewhere. Here ends the lesson.

Ok, that's fair enough, let's have some of your words then instead... "minerve 16 Nov '15 - 22:10 - 465 I have been in this business over 20 years. I can reassure you Woodford is up there with the best there is, no question. Of course, investing is not a game of perfection, it never will be, it is a game of managing risk with a view to long-term growth and not many will do it better than Woodford. I am a great admirer of him as a professional and as an individual. His views and attitudes pretty much mirror mine and his willingness to be open and transparent is second to none. If I had to hand my money over to someone in trust for the future, he would be the first, even before family members. Woodford is no different now than he was decades ago. Solid 100% professional with untouched integrity."

Are you OK Porky??? Very defensive!!! Have I upset you by exposing the many contradictions in your posts? If so, I apologise, I just thought you should admit the truth.

getting, Perhaps you could instruct us on the use of stop losses via a series of short lectures through this board. Then follow that up with a series of lectures, with actual examples, on Rights Issues. My eagerly awaited 'wallet photo portfolio', a stunning series of tasteful, yet powerful, images, has been delayed by recent weakness in the market.

Minny, no idea what you mean. Why is the % the issue? He might hold a large number of companies plus funds, ETFs etc etc. Then he could have significant other interests in property or other asset classes. So it's very possible that 0.7% translates into a sizeable number?

Now, come on now. Let's all just get along. Come on, now come on. The United Nations' IPCC has just published the latest chapter in its 'Textbook of Life', telling us where we are doing wrong in what we eat. This report has been generated by a massive Think Tank of so-called experts, flying around the world to attend conferences and committee meetings. The greatest contribution they can make to global warming is to stay at home. The Guardian Book club like the report, describing it as a 'Rollicking Rollercoaster of a book.' With such progress in this arena, you might wonder when the UN are going to issue the chapter on how to prevent 6 years of wholesale slaughter during a civil war. They have 2 good examples to use, in Bosnia & Syria. Now just come on now. Try to get to grips with it all.

Porky, on the stop loss point, I don't apply them that often, but I do when I sense they might save me from a big loss. Yes, I could just sell when I feel like that but I prefer to hold and limit any big losses. The previous time I set a stop loss on a results day the price rocketed on the results so I was very glad i didn't sell. You takes your choice...

You don't know the amount he holds in absolute terms do you Porky? It could be 0.7% of a very big number. After all, you're the guy who thinks >£100k is a huge salary!

" 0.7%" ???? Way too small. I'm surprised that after sucking Burford for 18 months plus that is ALL you have. Your portfolio must be a circus because if all your investments are that small I'd be surprised if you could follow any properly in between roasts and dog walks.

Hi Losos, glad to hear from you. Hope you sort out your health issues. We did pop into Burnham Market - lots of “Chelsea Tractors” and a Tuscan Farm Shop where almost everything is imported from Tuscany- how pretentious. We will certainly be back next year with more of the family. Being totally flexible Mrs Brexitplus and I can book at short notice on the web. I also ring the property holders and offer cash for a discount, which works most times. Good to see Burford on the rise after a damning rebuttal. It has only ever been 0.7% of my portfolio so never a problem. Risk management you know!!

B+ - "And swimming on Holkham Beach and Burnham Overy Staithe. Great pubs and farm shops. Have decided to visit again next year." Hi B+ Yes, there are some great places in Norfolk, Nelsons birthplace not far from where you were. To tell the truth I don't want too many people to know about the area in case it becomes 'trendy' and inundated with trolls haha But you are always welcome next year or before if you have the time. I think I mentioned I will not be posting so often on here, have a few health issues (As this is an investment site I'll not go into details) I will look in to read the 'news' spippets you post, hope to be around for a year or too longer, and will post if I am haha.

Yes, I know about stop losses. Show me a portfolio with stop-losses at 10% below current price and I’ll show you a portfolio that is destined to lose 10%. :) If you are SO confident about the stocks you choose why would you place an automatic sell below the current price? If you are NOT confident about the stock why not sell immediately for the higher price and move on? Stop-losses are for chimps who don’t have confidence in their own ability OR for professional traders. You are not a professional trader. ;) It’s obviously hurting him. OUCH!

Sounds nice, if you are a Burford skint boy that is! ;) Getting is trying is hardest to sound like BUR isn't cutting him. It must be hurting, sat there by the pool, helpless, as his net-worth sinks. He probably buried a lot of money into BUR without even considering risk management. LOL

Leek is good. Gravy too. Perhaps you might need to write a shopping list for Burford holders. I’m not quite sure they can afford beef. Love Muddy XXX

There’ll be no foreign alioli or padron peppers when we leave the EU. You’ll have to make do with a braised leek or cabbage and a british beef gravy.

Getting Yes, that’s the one. Also taking up the rights issue, when 62% of it weren’t taken up, and saying that as a professional investor he knew better than the “chimps.”; 😁😁😁 Rolls Royce, another of his great investments going DOWN.

Oh yes, the one where he kept saying "i don't just think, I KNOW this is undervalued because I can read accounts, and the rest of you morons aren't professional investors like me" And then the share price slid from 500p all the way down to 70p!
