AEC purchased some a few weeks ago should do well in mid term
2-5 years

NB I take NO responsibility for anyone who acts/doesn't act on this information
it is NOT a TIP just my most recent share purchase.

"the value of shares can fall as well as rise" :whistling:

i'm hoping dsgi will go up!
#3
i recently bought shares in QED(quinten estates & development), taylor wimpey & mcinerney(spell?) my qed ones have almost trippled over the last few months :D
#4
I have a lot of MXP (Max Petroleum) both in shares and Spreadbets. There is strong support at 20p and waiting on news regarding drilling. When the shares start to rise, they move very quickly.
Others to consider (which I hold) are VOG (Victoria Oil), and SEY (Sterling Energy).

Register (free) with iii.co.uk and check out whichever share you may be interested in their forums.

Depends how long you plan to have the investment if it's over 12 months RBS has to be the best at 52p, the government can't afford to nationalise them like Northern Rock, even if they only go upto £1 you double your investment, well thats what i am hoping anyway

I sold out of MXP at £1 before their directors all got sacked for dodgy dealings.

I'm buying construction shares at the moment as a year ago they were more than 5-10 times what they are now. Most companies have been at the worst point so all they can do is go up! The mcinerney i bought at 7p a share they used to be well over a fiver, and the QED ones i bought for around 28p a share they are now around 60-70p so i've made alot in only a couple of months.

I wouldn't personally touch any banks atm with a bargepole, the PM came out yesterday and wants the banks to speed up the process of bank charges refund claim.

Now when (i'll use that term lightly, as it's not set in stone, but with 3 major groups all saying the same now, it's pretty much going to happen and the banks know it) the refunds will start to go through, the banks will have to shed out millions if not reach billions to consumers. They the taxpayers will more than likely either shed out more to bail out the banks. Or, BoE will print more money.

Either way, the bank stocks won't grow past where they are now for a good 6 months, expect a downfall on them!

Been saving for about 2 years and chucked most of it into oil and gas sector earlier this year n few other commodities stock
My biggest holding is in Afren and bought 100000 with an average price of 42.5, now trading in the mid 80's. Happy to hold for a few years and my target price is around £3.50 lol
My other biggy is SKR which mines phosphate fertiliser in Kazakhstan, bought 100000 at 8p, then sold half at 17. On a free ride with 50000 and looking for more than the £1.20 sp than it was floated at last year lol, now trading circa 20p+
Started spread betting recently and making decent returns and tax free lol :thumbsup:
All in all if you know what your looking for their are shares out there that you can retire off If you have the nerve to invest, but also loads of money to be made from day trading
Made more in the last 5/6 months than I have in 3 years of full time work and fingers crossed I could retire by 30 if things go well

A foolish man and his money are easily parted!

If you are looking to invest, I personally wouldnt take advice from a consumer deals website....

I would seek professional advice, probably save you more in the long run.

Agreed, stock market is the easiest transfer of wealth from the stupid/impatient to the clever and patient ppl :thumbsup:
Anyone stupid enough to take a tip without reseraching themselves deserves to lose their money IMHO

OP are you any wiser with what you want to do with your money??

All I will say is be very careful with any stock tips that ppl give, having learned the hard way there are those who "ramp" and "deramp" stock. Remember that although you can buy stock and hope the price goes up there will be ppl who are "shorting" the same stock hoping ghe price goes down.
IMHO ppl can get very very nasty when moneys involved and thats why I would very rarely ever take someones tip on stock unless I know them well but I would still research itself before putting my hard earned money it.

If you want to learn about making money in the stock market then you should learn 2 things:

1) Fundamental analysis, is a way of looking at the market through economic, social and political forces that affect supply and demand

2) Technical analysis, is the study of price movement. In one word, technical analysis = charts

Anyone who thinks that they can just make money easily from the stock market is in for a shock and will lose money without doubt, sure you can get lucky but well worth taking time to read and learn before throwing ur money at it

yeah nice one mate.
Ima do a bit of research. If im honest.. i have been snooping around and seeing the prices RBS was at.... and the price it is at now. 4 years of recovery..... or its possible it could go under? Risk i am willing to take with 600.


oo also... im not looking to become a fancy stock broker. Just looking for a good 4 year investment for part of my student loan to help me out when i graduate..
