Sale – Synergy Health PLC

Today we sold our holding of 82 shares in Synergy Health PLC (SYR.L) for £5.8730 a share, netting us a total return of £481.59 before costs. We got on board with Synergy Health back in mid-July of this year at £5.0800 a share. In 3 and a half months we’ve made 79.3 pence per share...

Not Up, Not Down, Just Sideways

It seems as though our portfolio has been hovering in a range just above or below 10K for months now. In reality, it’s probably been closer to a few weeks but after the meteoric rise of our – small caps dominated – portfolio in the preceding four months, expectations have been high. But sideways isn’t...

Selling a Few Clipper Windpower

The last couple of weeks has seen a little turnaround in the fortunes of our – predominantly – small capped portfolio. The recent rise and rise of the FTSE seems to indicate that there’s still faith in the market in general so maybe it’s a case of people taking from AIM to invest in the...

Day 153 – Portfolio Value £10,413 Up £134 On The Day

So it seems an age since I’ve posted on Investor Trader but in reality its only been the best part of three weeks. Three weeks since we broke through the 10K figure. And whilst the FTSE powers on northward, heading back towards it’s old stomping grounds of ’07 and ’08 – beyond the 6K level...

Day 114 – Portfolio Value £8,680 Up £452 On The Day

Today’s boost to our bottom line can mainly be attributed to a 17.8% rally by Renesola – our Chinese manufacturer of solar energy wafers. After peaking at a little over £2.40 in June of ’09, Renesola has trended broadly downward since. The reason for yesterday’s surge? Renesola have put pen to paper on a new...

Day 107 – Portfolio Value £8,261 Up £160 On The Day

So after taking a bit of breather in June and July, the UK markets seem to have returned to their northward trajectory in the past month or so dragging our little green portfolio with it. Germany and France today announced GDP growth in the previous quarter indicating rosier times ahead and  the US Reserve held...

An Overdue Update

Sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted, what can I say, it’s summer where I’m at and our little portfolio has being just dandy on its own without my meddling hand. There’s been some chunky news floating about, so let’s get down to the nitty gritty. Remember Cosalt – our provider of safety products...

Day 71 – Portfolio Value £6,541 Down £321 On The Day

Red, red, red, our portfolio is as red as a sunburnt Communist sipping a Bloody Mary! Every one of our nine pathetic holdings finished the day in negative territory. Do I sound a little bitter? Maybe, just a touch, but the inner optimist in me is trying to see the positives. After dropping 9% (and...

Month 2 Summary – Portfolio Value £7,240

Last October I spent 30 days on a freighter ship as a passenger travelling from Melbourne, Australia to La Spezia in Italy. One whole month without Internet, with only the most fundamental of financial headlines via a copy of the ship’s faxed daily world news summary from its head office. Despite 48 hours of fearing...

Day 50 – Portfolio Value £7,459 Down £320 On The Day

Thud! That’s the sound of the bottom falling out of our portfolio. There’s going to be days like that but you’ve got to remain philosophical. As long as the good days outnumber the bad days, we’ll get there in the end. I’m just not sure where there is! Clipper Windpower came back 6% on news...

Day 49 – Portfolio Value £7,789 Up £274 On The Day

Following ReneSola’s New York listing (SOL) climbing 35 cents in as many minutes before yesterday’s close of trade, I guess I was half expecting some modest gains in ReneSola’s share price today. Half expecting. Though as I’ve pointed out more than once on Investor Trader, what should happen and what does happen with AIM listed...

Day 48 – Portfolio Value £7,507 Down £124 On The Day

On a day when the FTSE finished sharply down, our portfolio provided a mixed bag. We saw modest gains in Lloyds Bank (up 2.3%) and Ceramic Fuels Cells (up 3.0%) but these were more than offset by the continued retracement of ReneSola (down 5.8%) and the yo-yo-ing, Climate Exchange (down 4.9%). After last weeks highs...
