I gave up with the shareprophets.com website a while ago when they started charging. I have never been a great fan of Tom Winnifrith, although he has spotted disasters in the past (e.g. Globo). He has however been ramping OptiBiotix for years, repeatedly saying the share price would soon be over £1, it’s still about 85p at the moment.
I do read Paul Scott/Graham Neary’s SCVR every day as they are both good at dissecting balance sheets and give good insights as to what to look out for in accounts. Neither of them offer share ‘tips’ but they do say which companies they have holdings in. This always appears very clearly in their reports so you can decide for yourself if you think they are biased.
Another one I quite often look at is the nakedtrader.co.uk, where he highlights recent purchases and sales and outlines his reasons for doing so. I attended one of his seminars in the past and it was very interesting. Again he says that he does not provide tips and his website update only appears fortnightly these days.
I would say that the commentators may influence PI’s with their reports and this is magnified because volumes are often very small on AIM, with some stocks not even having any trades on any one day.
I just find it interesting to look at and read about other people’s approaches, but I would not invest without doing my own research. Everyone’s circumstances are different and so you need to cut your cloth accordingly.
