Most of the analytical posters who really knew their technical stuff - and a lot that didn’t - have migrated from ii after the changes. AFC is a very popular AIM share for private investors possibly because of its potential but also it has had famous names associated with it over the years as investors and non-exec directors.
There are still a lot around, I think, because I post something and then 3 days later see there has been 60 views or something, but few of them bother to log in and contribute.
I agree about too regimented an approach. With any stock the macro economy, the sector make-up and competitors not necessarily in the same sector are all valid discussion points.
I think lse.co.uk may have the most active current discussion on AFC (London south east … erm … building society(?)). A lot of entrenched views though, as you tend to get with AIm companies.
Yes. Strange problem arising is that my overall portfolio is so well up compared to a month ago my cash position has sunk to less than 32% of the overall value which is lower than I wanted to go.
On the other hand, if I had remained with that cash invested the overall value would likely be much higher now. Still, I might be applauding my overall cash position by this time next month … snapshots of a portfolio value are never anything but just that.
All the best…
