I had recently initiated a discussion of 'World Gravies' on another company's thread but I won't be repeating that here. It might, however, be worth pointing out that there was some confusion on that site between the terms 'gravy boat' and 'gravy train'. 'Gravy boat' is a jug type vessel in which gravy is served at the table. 'Gravy train' is a fictitious transport vehicle in which certain company bosses, politicians and high earners continuously travel back & forth gorging themselves at our expense. Such is the reputation of gravy as a luxurious delicacy.

To be fair, my Rolls-Royce investment so far has also been a damp squib. I sold Rolls Royce and it is back on my watch list.

It can be interesting, and sometimes quite telling, to look back at old news stories, forecasts and predictions, including this one from almost a year ago, based on MRO bosses own statements. "Daily Telegraph, 30 September 2018 GKN owner Melrose is preparing to cash in on its turnaround of the US air conditioning manufacturer Nortek as part of a string of sales expected to raise up to £6bn. Melrose bosses are exploring a sale of Nortek just two years after they snapped up the business for £2.2bn. Chris Miller, the executive chairman, ¬signalled that the turnaround is complete. “We’ve owned Nortek for two years and you have to ask, have we got to the end of the improvement programme?” he told The Sunday Telegraph. No decision has been taken, but Mr Miller said it could form part of a series of disposals in the coming months." Since then we've also had talk of sales of Ergotron and GKN Powder Metallurgy. We all know, of course, that nothing's happened yet. Something is overdue, or cancelled.

Just in case, a thoughtfully positioned stop loss might be appropriate.

MRO Interim results to be announced 5th September, just over 2 weeks time. So now is around he time that the market usually anticipates the performance figures and any other significant announcements, regarding disposals, closures, major investments etc. in this case. A current price of 167p doesn't seem to me to include any good news in these various respects, so barring a major market movement downwards, I can only see a bit of a recovery in the price up to results day.

Have you never used a stop-loss Meanwhile? They are simple enough to set up - even you could probably do it with a little help I reckon. You’ll need a thing called a micro-computer though. Or one of those modern phones that the youngsters down the road from you in Wrexham use to order their ‘spice’.

getting must have a wonderful and unique arrangement with his broker. One of his shares falls more than 50% in a few minutes and his broker manages to engage a 10% stop loss on the holding. This, of course, was BUR. But there was a second example. PLUS500 became MINUS 500 rather abruptly, halving in the very brief process, and yet a 10% stop loss was employed to limit getting's losses. Wonderful, and unique. Who is this broker? Could it be a delusion, or MEANWHILE, or Sliotar, or VHS?

Would that be my Burford holding that got stop-lossed out at 10% below prevailing price (as posted out time) which I then reinvested at way lower levels (again posted at the time) and are now way up?? It has been a roller coaster ride but I couldn’t be happier at the moment! Got a fair whack on this. How’s your single holding in MRO going Meanwhile? Is a wallet photo in order? 🥰🥰🥰🥰 Getting

Two posts from Ryelodge in one day!! Well done Ryelodge! Ryelodge has posted 81 times in the last 18 years, so his performance today represents over six months worth. Quite an effort today I think we would all agree. Well done again Ryelodge, really great work.
