Don't worry mate, i'm not about to pawn the family silver and stick it all on black! I have a couple of g's to play with, and i'd like to see how playing the market would fare versus a low to medium risk isa, if it bombs then it's a lesson learned, but won't leave me having to sell a kidney to pay the mortgage! Thanks for the info!

Hi psn1, I posted as social chat, but with hindsight my comment is goading you into action, that I did not intend. Investing has many pitfalls and being age 61 with working life that helps my sixth sense to level the playing field with the big boys, but have still had some losses. Whether investing is good for you is a big topic. Even if it could be, it can be time consuming to monitor, that in itself doesn't fit with many folks life-style. Alternative: Invest in yourself! Start a side business, invent something.. but even inventions take dosh that could be lost. Making money ain't easy, but losing it is easier, so think long and deep where best to spend your money AND invest your time. :-) IMO. FWIW I am with AJ Bell / YouInvest. Very best wishes. Dave

Thanks for that Dave. Do you favour any particular platform for trading? Thanks.

psn1: Since our consensus of opinion SMDS has gone up around 5% in 3 days! My opinion (and likely that of fellow posters here) is likely based on a long term horizon, but a nice cushion for starters! :-) Dave

I hear what you're saying guys, my aim is for my cash to make just that little bit more than i'd get than if I were to leave it festering in a bank account, and that's pretty much it really. This SMDS sounds like it might be worth sticking a couple of quid on, just to see how it fairs.

I also put some of my RPC proceeds into SMDS (down nearly l5% at the moment and I don't think the dividend I captured amounted to that much) and RIO , also down and Morgan Sindall (breaking even). Debating whether to top up SMDS. FWIW psn1, I topped up my Polymetal holding on May 1, 2018 at 714,49 and they are now 1084,50 and I hear gold funds are doing well but unless you are prepared to watch like a hawk you would probably do better with a plodder. As things are at present, it's all even more of a gamble than usual. I see Questor in the Sunday Telegraph is recommending Unilever as a buy, having rated them as a sell in Jan. 2018, since when it has gone up nearly 20%. LOL. Conclusion: you probably have just as good idea as to what to buy as anyone else, including the analysts and financial journalists. Just keep on the right side of Lady Luck.

I appreciate you're joking, psn1, but, seriously, investment is a long-term business and going into it with a get-rich-quick mindset is entirely wrong IMHO and will lead to some bad decisions. I started in 1972.........!

A wealth of info, as expected. Thanks very much chaps. Next year when I undoubtedly retire after amassing a considerable fortune and appear on the cover of Forbes, i'll ensure you guys are adequately provided for....

I second SMDS, although my avg cost basis is around 340p after the recent slaughtering, I'll be adding more at the 310p levels as my intrinsic value for the stock is at 380p. As usual make sure you do your research and understand the business well enough before investing!

I am learned. I have learnt whilst Mr T is around normal laws of investing based on economics are irrelevant, it is a game of chance until status quo resumed. Personally, through losing, I have learnt not to invest in Gold, oil and mines as geo-politics has a dominant unpredictable influnce on them. I prefer predictable supply and demand foresight, slowly slowly catch the monkey as you won't find that special navigators pocket watch worth millions in real life! I switched my RPC money into SMDS, so same sphere for portfolio balance and I expect its demand to be on the up. IMO Dave aka Rodney ;-) ..not really.

Morning all, like Lazarus, this post has returned from the grave. I'm looking for a bit of advice, if any of you learned investors have any to offer, I mean. I've done okish out of the RPC sell out, and was looking to stick the cash into something else, in the deluded Del Boy-esq hope i'll be a millionaire by this time next year (ha ha indeed). Do any of you think that gold is a decent investment at the moment? I hear a lot of chat about it, but for a novice, it's hard to guage the legitimacy of what I read. Any advice would be welcome.

gettingrichslow, Sorry, only just seen your response in #3602. I think that RPC was sold too cheaply. I don't think that the fact the bid succeeded proves that view is 'wrong' or that I have a closed mind. It more likely reflects the situation of the institutions by whose decisions we are bound, what their cost price was and whether they want to crystalise a profit. I have a substantial holding in EIG (formerly Enterprise Inns) and rode the shares all the way up to £8 (considerably more in real terms taking into account shares issues etc).....and all the way down to 25p! I have been a critic of their strategy for years and even tried to garner support from the main shareholders for an alternative, but as the shares have recently recovered to around 220/230, the perspective of someone who bought lower and has seen a multiple increase in value is rather different to someone who sees it in terms of 'recovery'! Anyway, it's all water under the bridge now. I think I was just bridling at the "closed minds" comment.

Have now managed to reinvest part of the proceeds in D S Smith. Looking a bit rocky in the short term but in the long term I hope it does what RPC did for me - good growing dividend stream and capital growth.

Jeffian, you're completely missing my point. I'm NOT saying anyone who resisted the bid or who were unwilling sellers are therefore people with closed minds. I'm saying that anyone who dismissed the notion that it could end up being sold for a low price had a closed mind. They are very different things. And for the record, I too was a holder and resisted the bid and was against it. But I realise that my notion of the value of the company was (evidently) different from the market's view, and I accept that they may well be right and I may well be wrong!

gettingrichslow, There are many examples of companies being taken over on the cheap - when I challenged one Chairman who was taking his company private, he responded "I can because the market lets me" - but it doesn't mean that those of us who resisted this opportunistic bid have "closed minds", just that we were unwilling sellers. It's all over now, of course, but thanks for taking the trouble to come back and tell us what you think of us!

Bouleversee, your definition of having an open mind isn't very open-minded! How about considering that all your instincts might be completely wrong and trying to understand the arguments from the opposing viewpoint? Just listening to 20 others with the same view as yours will always lead to 'confirmation bias'.

Jeffian, fair enough so one or two may have believed it was possible at the time, but the general point remains that nearly everyone convinced themselves that the 'true value' was north of £10, yet the reality is that it can't have been, because nobody has offered at that kind of price. I don't think pointing that out is being smug, I'm just stating facts and how there has been an element of 'group-think' on this board.

Getting rich slow - On the contrary, I think some/many of us have very open minds; open to the potential value of this company and the possibility of someone coming in with a higher offer, which Berry did, albeit only 11p better. Of course, anything can happen and terrible things do but surely it's better to fight on rather than throw in the towel at the first punch. Depending on the size of the holding, even 11p is worth having though admittedly it is a long time to wait and we would have done better to sell at the high point. So easy to be wise after the event and such a pity we don't have crystal balls but at least some of us do have some. (Am not including myself, being female!) It could just as easily have gone the other way, smugface.
