This board needs Minerve and myself to keep it alive. Look at the last few days without us. Stone Dead. Nobody, except the two of us, has anything useful, interesting or inspiring to contribute. Still, I suppose it's too much to expect from a young drunkard of a lad, an old bragster, a clapped out old sea-dog and a bunch of self- centred morons. Now I say this in a constructive manner, which is in no way meant to offend.

Three words, Meanwhile: Mean, Median and Mode. Who's the idiot that failed to understand them? Oh yes, the log cabin plonker in a cowboy suit, bless.

Meanwhile, you said you had never even heard of a stop-loss!! Quite how that is possible is beyond me yet that’s what you said! You then started asking questions about which platforms provide them (Answer: all of them!). I’m afraid you’ve revealed yourself to be even slower than we thought (and that was very low already). Best you get back to your bear-proof log cabin and play cowboys again! 🐻 🐻 🐻

I was able enough on the subject of investing to advise getting on the basics of rights issues, the simple maths involved, and to correct his notion of the stop-loss. On both of these, he had developed the view typical of an idiot.

"He certainly hasn’t got anything useful to say about investing." Mmmm, that does remind me of a trio, I can't possibly think who.

Absolutely right Yertiz. Meanwhile’s most useful posts this year have been about gravy! He certainly hasn’t got anything useful to say about investing.

1.86.60 was my lowest yesterday. Perhaps should have bought a few more, however I'm hoping this week's volatility will last at least another week.

So many market pressures this month, could become Black October again with history repeating itself. Several situations leading to a perfect storm ( possible impeachment, trade wars escalating, POO downwards pressure, no deal Brexit) Great time to have a good stash of dry powder.

Just had a small amount, under £1.70 is the ideal. Think that needs the UKX under 7k, which is possible. Was expecting market volatility, as mentioned and had almost given up hope.

M, I've been way too cautious on markets over the last few months, hey ho. OXIG looks a quality company fwiw. The share price is very volatile though - a 15% move is routine. I'm less sure how they will navigate the next downturn, however it's one for a longer term monitor list.

Essential I think that says a lot in a good way. ;) MRO would fit nicely in my portfolio, particularly the GKN bit. I'm not sure I can get my head around the executive remuneration history though given redundancies and all that.

Well MRO is one of my best ideas on a 3-5 year basis fwiw. I'm not sure what that says about my ideas!. So much in the market looks very fairy/fully valued atm. Buying MRO following some market weakness is preferable, as it tends to take a hit on risk off sentiment.

Essential Of course there are various forms of capitalism and it can be very easy to mistake one for the other on the face of it but make no mistake what Melrose are about. Of course, as investors, we need to decide whether we agree with such activities. Buffett's investments were always bought on the premise that the inherent value if broken up or closed down was greater than the investment cost but the objective of the investment rarely ended-up as a corporate raid. He did most of this in the earlier days. His big investments which made him the most money were those that actually created value by reinvesting the little they needed to promote brand like Coke, Gillette and American Express. Equally, he had little need to borrow money because he used insurance float to fund deals. Corporate raids today use 3rd party debt which needs to be paid back and sharpens the need to sell assets and get rid of employees. I'm sorry to hear of your previous family experience. I guess it was bad but if you look at the bright-side it has obviously made you a prudent investor. Not many on ADVFN. Benjamin Graham also suffered a similar family experience during the great depression which ended up with him developing his value theories including his net-nets. Good luck Essential. I'm not judging you. I know you are a decent fellow. ;)

Essential They haven't created any value. They have just shifted it.

The LSE is littered with BOD's who have been rewarded for failure with lottery win type renumeration. At least MRO have (to this point) created huge value. There are no guarantees, however early indications are they will do the same again with GKN. I'm hoping there will be an opportunity to add lower down.

Hypocrisy rules! Recruit someone with the relevant experience at board level whilst making thousands with the relevant experience redundant. Erm, OK, whatever.

ryelodge Looks like you missed this sentence from the RNS: "During this time she gained extensive experience within the aerospace, engineering, manufacturing and energy sectors." Relevant experience re: Melrose businesses.

Another lawyer added to the Board replete with bankers, accountants and lawyers. Fine if they are going to move quickly and unload the major businesses. In the meantime the market might respond more positively if there was some heavyweight engineering representation on the Board of this now FTSE 100 company.
