Cherry Picking Profitable AIM Shares

A couple of weeks ago now - prior to a little mid-summer rest and relaxation - I penned a post (with one foot out the door) in which I fleetingly mentioned the fact we'd liquidated a number of holdings and topped up on one in particular I thought a little over-sold. There wasn't any great financial nous behind that decision, no fundamental or technical analysis. Charts weren't poured over, ratios weren't examined, calendars of upcoming financial events were not consulted. I got what's know in bad economic times as the heebee-jeebies, the financial jitters. It's a desire, neigh necessity, to take what...

Sale – Entertainment One

After amassing some lovely gains in Entertainment One (ETO.L) over the past seven or eight months, we took a little off the top, selling 300 shares at £1.3912 for a return before costs of £417.36. It's the second trim we've given Entertainment One in the past couple of months, and although I believe there's a ton more left in it, I'm never too disappointed taking profits. Especially when a share has already returned well over 100%. In the case of Entertainment One, we bought in back in May 2010 for 61 pence. At close of trade yesterday (14th January 2011) ETO.L was...

13 UK Shares on AIM

You'll have to excuse this post, it's a little self indulgent and - as Lucy from Entertainment One has kindly pointed out - incorrectly titled, since Entertainment One moved to the main board in July 2010. I wanted to throw the recent (three months in this case) charts of all our holdings together in the one place so I can get a bit of a feel of what's looking good (and what's looking not so good) technically speaking as we punch on in to 2011. Usually I'd do this sort of thing without posting it but what the heck. So with a...

Sale – Entertainment One

Another equity I love has recently felt the steel of my trading sword; Entertainment One. We've chopped the top off our ETO.L holding selling 1,067 shares for £1.17 a share on 15th November 2011. We bought in to Entertainment One back in May of this year at 61 pence a pop, so in effect we almost doubled our cash in six short months - no complaints there! We still hold 1,200 of these bad boys but like pretty much every equity all of the world ever (okay, now I'm just getting emotional) in the past week or two - cue Ireland, cue North...

Entertainment One Moves to London’s Main Board

Back in Mid May of this year - following a prompt from an Investor Trader reader - we took up a speculative tranche of Entertainment One (ETO.L). Entertainment One is a leading independent entertainment group, with diversified operations incorporating film, television and music across five territories (UK, Canada, US, Holland, Belgium). We liked what we'd heard so we did a little follow up homework and when Small Company Share Watch (our fave Small Cap tip sheet) went and ran a feature extolling the potential of ETO.L, we just had to take the plunge. That was in May 2010, the price was 61 pence...

Purchase – Entertainment One

With an abundance of cash - well, for me anyway - sitting in our trading account following sales of West China Cement and Renesola, I thought it time to set some of it free. Put it to work. Following a nudge from an Investor Trader reader a few months back now, we've been keeping an eye on Entertainment One (ETO.L). After Small Company Sharewatch (our absolute fave small cap tip sheet) featured them in their May 2010 edition, we decided is was time to take an even closer look. Entertainment One is a leading independent entertainment group, with diversified operations incorporating film,...
