interesting points steeplejack and I agree with some of them and only reason that shorting is more risky as that we are still in a long term bullmarket for stocks and more chance to make money going long except with some mining stocks of late , eg KAZ . Nice to see NMC recovering today and let's see what happens after the dow opena is 30 minutes

You're right of course.CFDs used sensibly for hedging can be very useful but the facts remain that short term trading is a dicey business and over a period most traders lose.CFDs in my experience require a lot of diligence.There are daily finance charges connected with the privilege of running a CFD,you are also subject to capital gains.I have a CFD account but I rarely use it nowadays,in fact in many respects I think spread betting accounts are preferable to CFDs ie no tax etc.Take today.I have no idea whether NMC will end down or whether it will recover.My hunch is that it could end up 50p or so but it's only a guess.I'm fairly certain though that over the long term this will prove very sound investment .

maybe but why not hedge by doing a covered short with a CFD in a period of short term weakness which in effect reduces the holding cost of your stock - it often works well .

Excellent article,thanks for posting. Run your profits,cut your losses is the old maxim but it's all with the benefit of hindsight.In the words of Cool Hand Luke,"sometimes nothing is a mighty cool hand",well sometimes doing nothing is equally cool in the equity market,just holding a stock and trusting your judgement.Its a mistake to be an over active trader and actually an over busy bulletin board is often a bad sign,so I'll shut up .NMC is a solid hold.

in spite of all that which makes some sense , it can not be wrong to sell something which is showing a short term downtrend and buying back at a lower level when correction deemed to be over .

Subject: The unspoken sin of investing is selling good stocks too soon "The unspoken sin of investing is selling good stocks too soon A couple of years ago I met a fund manager in London who recalled with dewy eyes how cheap stocks became in late-2008 as the world trembled after the failure of Lehman Brothers. He fondly reeled off the household name blue-chip US companies his fund had snapped up at rock-bottom prices which went on to strongly recover the following year. When asked if his fund still owned any of these wonderful shares he gave me a puzzled look. He was a value investor, he said somewhat defensively, and had sold all of them after they rallied and became, in his view, expensive. His fund was now filled with miners, foreign oil companies and all sorts of low-quality junk. Most of the excellent companies he had sold back in 2009 and 2010 have since trounced the wider market, and the performance of his fund. The investing mistakes that commonly receive the most attention are when people buy something that falls in price and results in them suffering a loss. The second type of mistake people focus on are those of omission, or when an opportunity to buy a great investment is for some reason missed. Far less attention is given to a common mistake that is arguably a greater sin than both of these: selling an investment too early that goes on to perform fantastically well for many years. The British fund manager John Armitage, one of the most successful, yet lowest profile, stockpickers in the world, described in an interview from 2007 how many of his biggest unforced errors tended to result not from buying bad stocks but from selling wonderful ones far too early. Mr Armitage recalled how “I’ve bought stocks that have gone down, and they sear on your soul, but selling winners, that’s the big mistake . . . I have been a very bad seller of shares. I’ve sold lots of winners.” I’ve bought stocks that have gone down . . . but selling winners, that’s the big mistake John Armitage, fund manager “Investors confuse rates of return with the potential for absolute gain. You make the mistake of misunderstanding the true potential,” he added. It is easier to avoid overestimating the potential of a bad business than avoid underestimating the potential of a great one. Frauds, fads and failures tend to burn out quickly, meaning their weakness becomes apparent over a few years rather than decades. The warning signs are usually clear. Bad businesses burn through cash rather than generate it, meaning they require constant access to fresh capital to keep going. They operate in highly competitive markets with no distinct advantage. They are prone to dilute investors by issuing additional equity or take on increasing leverage without generating sufficient returns on the capital they devour. The long-term potential of exceptional businesses that compound their value over decades is far harder to spot. It is a mistake committed by even the greatest investors. In 1966 Warren Buffett bought 5 per cent of Disney when it was a small-cap stock for $4m, and sold a year later for $6m for a 50 per cent profit. Disney is today worth just shy of $170bn and has returned billions in capital to its investors over the years. “Psychologically, I don’t mind holding a company I like and admire and I trust and know that it will be stronger than now after many years,” he has said. “And if the valuation gets a little silly, I just ignore it. So, I own assets that I would never buy at their current prices but I am quite comfortable holding them.” His advice in its broadest sense applies to all types of investors, be they hedge fund managers or individual savers who own low-cost tracker funds. Just because you wouldn’t buy now certainly doesn’t mean you should sell. As is so often the case in investing, once you have made a good decision, the best subsequent decision — and frequently the hardest to stick to — is to do nothing at all.

I like to run my winners over long term. No need to sell and re-buy here at the moment imo.

It has a lovely long term chart uptrebd but may pullback to 3700 or even 3500 before resuming uptrend . Why would you not sell or sell half and buy back after the correction to take your massive profit just in case ?

Bit of profit taking. Read the results and hold imo. Bought at 750p and no intention of selling for quite a while. Expecting £50+ in due course. Dyor

The company secretary's wife has sold stock which never goes down well.Helps to emphasis the good run the stock has had.Irritating fall back but not to worry.

but maybe you were too hasty to buy back as still falling although might be about to consolidate at just above the £39 level or at £38 level at worst .

NMC Health, the United Arab Emirates-based hospital operator, hit a record high after delivering a better than expected 32 per cent increase in first-half earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation. Goldman Sachs repeated “buy” advice, saying: “We view the results as positive given the strong performance in all of the group’s segments driven by (1) successful integration of acquisitions during the year and synergies from past acquisitions; (2) better than expected ramp-up of operations at newly established assets, namely NMC Royal Hospital [in Abu Dhabi]; and (3) better pricing seen across all healthcare divisions.”
