By , 02 Apr 2015

In this article I will show you how to profit from a short-term correction using the example of biotech, although in the longer term it's a sector I remain a big fan of. 

Regular readers will know that I have been a big fan of biotech stocks and making money from the ageing population trend. This is a trend which has been extremely profitable.

Oil prices can still go lower – don’t bet on a bottom being in yet

By , 16 Feb 2015

Back in 2012 with oil at over $110 a barrel I came out with an article saying that oil would be nearer to $50 in the next few years, most laughed at me and if you search you can still see comments.

Fast-forward and here we are at around $50 and now it seems everyone is an oil expert and they will say they saw it coming… yet they have no evidence to back it up.

Imperial Tobacco (IMT) is a safe stock in a volatile market

By , 19 Jan 2015

With 2015 starting off with wild market swings here’s a stock which I believe will hold up and stands to have another good year.

Regular readers will know I tend to mainly invest in US listed stocks however I do also have a few UK listed holdings two of which I have held for over 14 years and made a tidy profit.

Buy Fiat Chrysler and get a free Ferrari (share)

By , 17 Nov 2014

This month I recommend both buying Fiat Chrysler (NYSE: FCAU) and going short EURUSD, as I remain bearish on the euro and bullish on the dollar and think parity is looming.

Most readers will be familiar with Fiat cars, however many investors are still not aware that Fiat now also own Chrysler (bought out of bankruptcy in 2009), Alfa Romeo, Dodge, Jeep, Lancia, Ram Trucks, Abarth, Maserati and Ferrari.

Jimmy Choo Plc is a luxury fashion IPO at a sensible valuation

By , 22 Oct 2014

2014 has seen a rush of companies looking to float on the London Stock Exchange. But while many recent initial public offers (IPOs) in London have looked overvalued, the flotation of luxury shoemaker Jimmy Choo (CHOO) looks a little different.

On the whole by the time the ‘little investor’ gets a chance to become involved, returns are normally skinny or end up losing money as many IPOs recently have soon traded below their initial offer price.

It’s not too late to invest in India's multi-year bull market

By , 12 Sep 2014

This month I will take a look at investing in India and give you a few specific Indian companies to look at as well as using Exchange Traded Funds to gain a broad exposure.

It’s now over three months since the Indians voted for Narendra Modi as prime minister and his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will be in power for at least five years. After years of bureaucratic bottlenecks and stagflation India finally has a chance under reformist Modi to become more business friendly.

Have a bet on wrestling with World Wresting Entertainment (NYSE:WWE)

By , 08 Aug 2014

This month I will take a look at a beaten down stock which I believe has potential to bounce back: World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE:WWE).

The company is an integrated media and entertainment company engaged in the sports entertainment business worldwide. It operates in four segments: Live and Televised Entertainment, Consumer Products, Digital Media, and WWE Studios. The Live and Televised Entertainment segment produces live events and provides content for its television and other programming; designs, markets, and distributes various WWE-branded products, such as t-shirts, caps, and other novelty items; and offers pay-per-view programs.

Blackberry down but not out – how you can profit from the turnaround

By , 11 Jul 2014

With the Dow, S&P, NASDAQ, FTSE 100, DAX, FTSE 250 and RUSSELL 2000 sitting at either all-time highs or near multi-year highs it may feel like all the deals and bargains have gone. But determined stockpicking can still find undervalued gems.

This month I will take a look at a stock which I think still has tremendous value even after the recent bounce: Blackberry (NYSE:BBRY)

Traders should getting ready for the seasonal sell signal – the power of switching

By , 15 Apr 2014

Those who have followed me for some years will know I am a fan of seasonality and as I have explained in previous updates, financial markets do not go up or down evenly throughout the year in a nice orderly straight line; that would be far too easy.

If we invested $10,000 in the Dow Jones on 1st November and and then taken our money out on April 30st from 1950 to date we would now have over $950,000. We would have been out of the market May until end of October each year missing a few crashes in the process.

Sunday share tips: WPP, Asos, WANDisco

Thu, 1st Jan - * Shares in Asos should be sold, the Inside the City column said in the Sunday Times. After a rollercoaster ride up to a £70 all-time high before shooting down to half that point after three profit warnings, the halo has slipped and the feeling is that it has further to fall as rivals have caught up with its initial online advantages. Profits are set to flatline due to costly overseas expansion, the strong pound and price discounting and the shares are three times the value of Zara's owner Inditex on a price-earnings basis, and more expensive than H&M.
