    Not sure what others are doing but my plan was to leave for 3+yrs and see what happens. My original view of RR still stands if they drop 50% revenue. I.e some random overseas PE folk or co will acquire them. I’ll probably cry in 3 yrs, don’t have the time to actively trade.

    Annoyingly I was gonna buy a few grand of Xaar shares in March….would have made enough money to pay for a new kitchen by now and reckon it’ll keep going up for a while yet.

    idiot.

    I just can’t be arsed with short term trading, I probably only buy/sell stocks once or twice a year.

    Haha – No doubling down on what is essentially a gamble for me.

    Wow down to 180! Anyone thinking now is a good time to pile in?

    I’d say only if you’re prepared to buy more shares in the event of a rights issue in the next twelve months.

    Personally I think Rolls is a reasonably sound bet for the future, especially since the odious bloke that’s the Times’ business editor is warning people off them.

    Erm, as the full thread so aptly demonstrates, my viewpoint on this is definitely one to be ignored 👿😈😫

    I did indeed buy more each time it repeatedly dropped to “never previously seen ” levels.
    But now I’ve run out of money to continue doing so. 😄😃

    Good money to be made for the active trader on this one.

    I’m buy and hold and not one to double down into a losing position. 16% down right now. Within my current risk range for what is essentially a gamble.

    It’s a shame – I wish the management could raise funds like a US team. Challenge for all UK co’s. In US random surfer dude can literally raise near a billion for fancy offices (WeWork) more for car co (Tesla). Think with the IP and ability to execute what RR could be with some half decent management with vision and ability to raise large funds for R&D.

    Dammit – I’d be interested to see what Hope could knock out given a billion.

    Meanwhile in US co’s trying to bid more for stupid twerking app tik tok.

    I’m interested in what this is sourced from?

    Slightly off topic but I’ve been dipping a toe in to managing my own S&S’s with the Freetrader App. Aside from investing in Apple (new iphone), Tesla (just because), Sony (PS5) I’ve also put some cash in to Cineworld with my thinking being a) its cheap b) there is a raft of new films waiting for release c) one day life will **hopefully** return to normal and cinemas will be rammed. Am I delusional or could it be a good long term bet?

    Cinema… How quaint.

    I wouldn’t base my investing on some due to be released Hollywood blockbusters….

    Cineworld is an interesting one! Just looked at the most recent box office figures (all cinemas) and it’s higher than I’d have thought… £2.7M total weekend sales. How much they keep rising depends on wave 2/further lockdowns I guess! If the share price returns to even half of what it was pre-covid you’d be laughing. I guess they could go bust before then but they’ve weathered the storm so far, haven’t heard any rumblings about them being in trouble?

    The data would suggest the overwhelming majority of amateurs are better off investing in global passive funds.
    It doesn’t fulfil the criteria of ‘getting rich quick’ or excitement tho.

    I don’t pick many stocks, the ones I do have done appallingly (including the subject matter of this thread).
    I’m sticking to funds 🤣

    This thread should be essential reading for anyone who wants to loose their shirt. -10% today. I do feel for the OP.

    Nah you don’t. And neither should you. I knew when I opened it that there was a good chance of it going south. In which place it would be a good Schadenfreude Gelegenheit If nothing else.

    And so it has proved.

    Can anyone lend me some cash? I absolutely know for sure it can’t go down any lower 😜
    It’s a dead cert. We can’t lose.

    Sometimes though, obvious stuff is obvious. See the FAANGs at the start of lockdown, Bloomsbury when Harry Potter mania was in full flow, etc.

    the generalist, great to hear you are still with shirt and providing us all with a very balanced and self effacing reflection. Chapeau. Keep posting.

    I’m quite proud of myself actually. On about four successive days I have resisted the Oh my god it surely can’t go any lower can it urge.

    Need to stay strong. Hold out for £1.00

    On a side note since someone has bumped the thread… Is anyone up since April on other shares? Noticed various people on other thread posts from around a month ago saying they were 15% up or thereabouts.

    I was too, but am now about6% down since April and just wondering if it was a general trend or just my woeful lack of acuity?

    I started buying LGITI about a week into the pandemic and drip fed a few years’ ISA allowances (via transfers) in between March-May. That’s still up 17%.

    I’ve made some bad buys too though – VWHL and EDIN both down enough to make me wince a bit 😀

    I bought a combination of trackers (FTSE 100, FTSE All Share, LifeStrategy 80 and LifeStrategy 100) from Vanguard between 3rd and 17th March 2020. I sold my way out between the 20th March and 1st June 2020 and realised a 2.7% return.

    The money that I invested is now all in cash, I can’t help but think that the markets will fall again at which point I’ll be reinvesting.

    Yep, my biggest holding SMT is up since April 2020. It’s been so successful, probably about 25% of my pension is now SMT.

    Sounds ideal.

    My Aviva is up 19% but alas it is about 0.005% of mine so utterly useless.

    thegeneralist

    Sorry, that sounds like dick swinging. Just to clarify, I have one Aviva share, yes 1.
    I kept 1 after I sold the others to make it easier to see prices on the main page and judge when to buy back in.
    ( Or in this case watch the price soar away just after I’d sold the rest 😈😫🤔)

    This is going so well. Not idea why I didn’t do this years ago.🥵🥵🥵

    I got asked if I wanted to donate to charity when paying for fuel today. I was like Pleeaaaase, have you seen the Rolls Royce share price, do you and the rest of STW want to donate to my Gofundme 😂

    LOL at silly silly.

    So, thought I might as well get this in the open again before some other £_&£# does 😉

    So for every 3 shares I have, I can buy 10 more at a price of 32p…

    Or can I buy 7 more at 32p to make a total of 10….

    Which is it?

    Can someone explain before I lose loads of money.

    Actually, too late for that😈😫🤔

    But explain anyway.

    thegeneralist

    Looks like it’s ten more to make thirteen
    So to speak.

    So for every 3 I have at £1.30, I can buy 10 more at 32p. Which would give me 13 shares costing a total of £7.10. which equates to a new share price of 54.6p

    10 of which I would be getting at 32p ( the offer price) which is 41% less than 54.6p, which matches what the Torygraph says the discount is.

    IZZAT right?

    The generalist – that’s what my calculations have it at.

    Are these rights transferable?
    Has that been announced?
