Dr m discussion board


#1321

I bought Tap on the fall @ 100 only to watch it fall to 73 hours after .
But sold that top up @ 114 on Friday .
Funny board this Dr m always preached buying rising shares not massive faller’s like tap ??


#1322

@Ripley94, no-one ‘preached’ anything to you or anyone else. It was not a ramp to buy. I was replying to @share_123_maiden that I agreed about Chinese and Israeli shares but chose to buy Taptica . Besides I prefer to communicate with someone with whom I can share information like @share_123_maiden but you don’t have to read the posts if you don’t want to.
No-one cares what I do and neither do I care what you or others do.


#1323

I am afraid you are wrong.
Look back on here you will see evedence of Dr m ( Marksman ) doing just that.
Not sure what your up to.


#1324

What happened to Dr M? i haven’t seen him post in months. is he alive and well?


#1325

Sorry, I don’t know


#1326

I have asked that question out of genuine concern over last few months.

But it might be he was one of the posters ( like last- call , who admits to have many different names )
Last call appears under a name throws ideas about then disappears and his case deramping .


#1327

I emailed Dr M after he stopped posting on this board inviting him to meet for lunch, but he never replied. I then phoned him and he hung up when he realised it was me. For some reason he took great offence at any comments I made about Lloyds Bank or Vodafone as he was a great fan of both shares. I sold the holdings I had in both of these around that time as they were poor performers (and for the record have continued to be so).


#1328

@Ripley94, Taptica is now at 125


#1329

Thanks for information mememe.
Mistake slicing the last top up in hindsight
Maybe this is the time to buy it.
That would be more like the Dr m style.
If he still reads board maybe he will jump in get some of the losses from vod back.
I put a limit buy on VOD today but it did not lift , time will tell if that was lucky or not .


#1330

@Ripley94, it’s never a bad time to take profits. You never know what’s round the corner.


#1331

@mememe, did you ever take a look at Barco that I mentioned before, lovely chart, up over 30% since beginning of April.

Angle had a successful fund raise of £18m today, did you buy any in the end?

Nice gap up for Cerillion today after the announcement of a major contract win.


#1332

@share_123_maiden, I took a look when you mentioned it and bought. thanks.
Angle too but showing a small loss.
I don’t hold Cerillion.
I got rid of Future last week read a negative review.
Somero took a big hit - not sure whether to buy.
Also getting rid of pure UK stocks and today sold the retailers I own - just Joules and perhaps another left I need to check. UK PLC is in a bad way.


#1333

Good to know some of you are still alive and kicking on this board if sadly Dr M and Loads seem to have moved on = shame.
A few that might interest that I hold and am happy with:-
IIPR div1.4% - in the past yr 1d+3.2, 1m 46% and 1y 254%
KEYS div 1.7% - 0/10/57%
SCT div 1.4% - o.75/7/31%
EVR mainly for the div, but still in rising
Not sure ref FEVR maybe overdone, but still doing good in US
MANO - not a year yet but doing great, super results last week then two awful days, but can’t see any reasons, so holding as still up. I sold FUTR recently and SOM ages ago before the drop. Hard to find anything with a Stan 2 rise!


#1334

@Lorinnae, you said “Hard to find anything with a Stan 2 rise!” and I have to agree. I feel that the market is perhaps reaching its peak. I have been re-aligning my portfolio with less momentum shares and adding to those of good quality and value and hopefully paying a dividend which is well covered. I’m looking for companies with generally little or not debt too if possible, but this does vary from sector to sector. I notice you have a couple of holdings in the legal sector with KEYS and MANO which may be more resilient in a downturn. I hold GTLY in this sector which pays a decent dividend of c 5% and on a forward PE of 12, although the share price has been fairly uninspiring for the last year or so. I’ve also looked at RBGP in the past which is on a forward PE of 14 with a dividend yield of c 4.5%. I also still hold BUR but am considering banking some of the profit on this one.

Given the recent rise in the gold price it might also be a good time to be considering miners so your holding in EVR looks like a good idea. There was a subscriber only article on Sharescope yesterday expressing the same sentiment.

I never bought FUTR but you can’t buy everything, so well done on that one. SCT I have held for some time and continue to hold. I also still hold SOM as I believe the management here tend to under promise and over deliver and even when there is a drop in the share price there is still the large dividend to consider. I also still continue to hold FEVR as I agree that the US market has huge potential, but it is dependent upon the ability to deliver as many a UK company has come a cropper in the US, time will tell.

Good luck with your investments and as always DYOR.


#1335

@Lorinnae you might like to take a look at EMIS, IEM, ITM and EQS (formally FairFX) which have some nice charts (I hold all four).

On the defensive side have a look at RFX forward PE 9.8 and yield 3.9% and CAPD forward PE 8.9 and yield 4.3% (again I hold both).


#1336

ashare_123_maiden - many thanks for info shared, and a couple I am watching carefully. FUTR
I sold in June only had for 2 months . Good while I felt it lasted.Things are changing so quickly.
I agree divs are good (as long as the Co doesn’t drop them). Momentum my preferred is hard to come by. Don’t think I mentioned MELI no Div., held since May only 6% up so far, and OXIG since end of June also + 6%. SDY held since May, got Div now but no rise and research suggests dump?. For some reason I don’t think mentioned RENT held since 2016, graph still looks OK, 1+% div and so far gain 162+% so that stays (for now). Onwards and hopefully upwards!!!


#1337

@Lorinnae, what stock is RENT? can’t find this ticker code. thanks


#1338

@mememe, I think she means Rentokil Initial epic RTO.


#1339

@share_123_maiden, thanks. I thought it was Rentokil as that has been doing well but wasn’t sure.


#1340

So sorry folks not been here for a couple of days, yes quite right, I got it wrong I meant RTO, held since Feb 16, and still looks almost Stan 2. Don’t know whether either of you do US stocks? Maybe I mentioned IIPR before, but since Feb when I got it’s up 93% and still looks fine to me. I’ve sold my 2 canabis shares before I gave back much profit, I gambled, but kept this as its not purely Canabis. Toying with selling GAMA as not liking all of what I read and having had for 3 months and showing a 4% loss think that’s it for now.
