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.

Usually I'd do this sort of thing without posting it but what the heck. So with a...

Purchase – Stellar Diamonds

Diamonds are a boy's best friend. Well, maybe not best friend but with a 43% gain since we purchased a bunch in mid December 2010, Stellar Diamonds have at least made my Christmas card list. After selling up some Hutchison China Meditech and and all of our Workspace Group on 17th December 2010 we turned around and plonked the proceedings into Stellar Diamonds (STEL.L). We purchased 12,233 shares at 8.195 pence for a total outlay of £1,002.49. In the handful of days of Christmas trading since then, Stellar has packed on another 4 pence and currently trades at 12.2 pence as I type. Why...
