3 years on a lot more of my money is in shares and I have a full time share job...
26 February 2014
Been reviewing my share buys over the past few years... just realized I've had two shares that are "six baggers" and "four baggers". AKA one share has gone up (over) 600% since I bought it and another by more than 400%. And yet I still have most of my money in cash? Pretty silly... need to identify good opportunities and get more into shares. If I needed a bit more cash I can just get the dividends or even (heaven forbid... haven't sold in 7 years) sell some if I want.
In other news, been given some good advice to invest more in myself and will be doing that too!
Eventful and interesting week at work... on Friday we are having the guru Chris Bailey AKA Mr Financial Orbit come to visit us. Am sure it will be good and we will give him a good Yorkshire probing. I have put my money where his mouth is in buying Imperial Brands, Easy Jet, Royal Mail, Next and Whitbread recently... yet it will be interesting to see what comes out of the horse's mouth!
Finally got on the Bovis conference call today... after they were quite slow in giving me the correct number. The fall today was too much and the shares are up nearly 1% from where I bought them. The fundamentals are still good so it's worth investors taking a closer look.
