    Ooh hello again.

    Was thinking about this thread as my shares tanked this last week 🙂

    Thankfully I ditched some RR at 140 or so, so might buy back in if they go down to 83p again tomorrow.

    Especially in light of sillysilly’s post

    What do you all use to do you trading? Is there an app or something?

    I use I-web, £5 per trade.

    Freetrade and trading 212 are two of the most popular ‘free’ trading apps in the UK. I’ve used both for ‘fun’ trading. They are free at the point of use – they obv make their money in other ways.

    I can send a link and we both get a free share (in a random company)

    The gov’s energy strategy could be good news for RR with their mini nuclear reactors.
    I had a £3k punt at end of last week buying at 101.5p; not short term so it’s invest and forget.
    In early days of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine I considered buying BAE so placed a kill or fill order at 3% premium to last closing price; order was killed as opening price was up 8%.
    Felt a bit grubby trying to buy defence shares but that clearly didn’t stop the pros.

    Right. I’ve signed up to free-trade and I’m having a play. Addictive this!

    Netflix. What do we think?

    There’s talk of the subscription services about to struggle. With the increased living costs frivolities like streaming are likely to be dropped by customers.

    Netflix. What do we think?

    Still over valued.

    Continues not making a profit and will continue to loose subscribers as the cost of living goes up, and people cut back on non-essentials.

    Also be wary of buying shares that are traded in a foreign currency.
    Share price could go up, but its wiped out my currency movements (and transaction fees)

    Or you could get double-bubble if the FX rate goes in your favour

    So, how’s everyone doing on their investments?

    My Rolls’ is down 27%, but doing spectacularly well compared to the £4 grand I lost on Cineworld!
    My policy of “what goes down must come up” seems to have been a tad flawed.
    See also Intu, Assos, Carnival, THG and Vestas Wind, many of which are down at least 60% 🙂
    Weirdly enough despite the above shitshows I’m still just about even, god knows how.

    I’ve not dared look at my pension info, but get the impression prices have dropped a bit recently…

    Anyone feeling brave enough to share how their pot is overall?

    Also interested if anyone is buying big at present. My head says it makes sense, but I’m recoiling at putting anything in at present given that things could well get even worse.

    95% down on cineworld

    when they were rock-bottom post-lockdowns I was tempted having a punt as things were looking up a bit, few big releases coming (James Bond, etc). Glad I didn’t now 😂

    They did bounce quite nicely for Bond, but numbnuts here decided it was the start of a new dawn, and so didn’t sell.
    Then they went chapter 11☺️🤔🤭

    but numbnuts here decided it was the start of a new dawn

    don’t worry, you’re not alone – the local council here decided to invest millions of taxpayer money in a big new (luxury) cinema complex, despite the entire industry obviously being on life-support at the moment. Not a resounding success so far 😂

    not looked at my s&s pension for ages, its in various UT, I imagine it’s tanked

    shell +134.43%

    That’s seriously good timing buying at around 990!

    lockdown panic selling dip when no one was using fuel

    both lloyds and barclays haven’t recovered as much as I expected

    I said on another thread. This mini-budget chaos is another good time to be grabbing stock you plan to hold onto.

    Well thats my view anyway

    I nearly had a punt on Cineworld, glad I didn’t.

    Haven’t looked at share prices of mine for a while just reinvest the divs as they build up.

    After c 5 years the cumulative divs far outweigh any capital losses. With decent interest rates I ‘ll divert divs into savings accounts. I have a few of the teaser loyalty accounts paying 5%.

    Good luck, stay in for the long term.

    Vast majority of my investments are in low cost trackers so not getting high volatility e.g. iShares World ETF is down 6.43% year to date. Average returns with lost costs is my long term strategy.

    RR now at 99.27p so…nearly back to where they were 10 months ago.
    I anticipate they will fall back on profit taking but the upward trend of last 2 months is encouraging.

    Healthy gains so far this year. Still feels a little undervalued at 109p – especially when you go back to first post here. Regret not piling on at 66p now of course. I’m in for the long haul so might drop a few more quid on them.

    In HoC yesterday, johnson commented that small modular reactors should be part of UK’s energy mix.
    Did he have RR in mind?

    Is today the day to sell? 🙂

    frankconway

    Options are:
    1. sell today, take profit, miss out on continued recovery
    2. buy more in anticipation of further rises and eventual return of divi payments
    3. do nothing

    For me, 2 or 3 are the only options; 3 at present so…wait and watch to see where the share price settles over the next few weeks and probably buy more if that level is 115-120p.
    I think today’s trading volumes will be high – a combination of profit taking and buyers getting in based on FOMO.

    What did you do @frankconway?

    frankconway
    Full Member

    slowpuncheur – I’m still at option 3 but…Citi have upgraded their target price to 224p (currently 148p).
    The Aukus submarine deal and sunak/hunt talking positively about small modular reactors have potential, I think, to really drive the share price.
    May be time for a tickle…

    So. Someone cheer me up on this shit autumnal weekend on the sofa.

    Up 148%

    C’mon someone tell me they bought some ….

    And more to the point, tell me what else to buy on Monday when I sell some.

    Why sell?

    Because taking profits is the fun bit.

    frankconway

    The really fun bit is maximising profit.
    I think the share price still has significant upside potential.

    Mine have done well. I only bought due to this thread so thanks. Bought some a couple of years ago, then sold half when up about 2k. Bought some more last year and they are well up. Decent bike money, but it’s in the pension fund so sitting for a while. Motley Fool reckons they have more climbing to do.

    I topped up my holding in mid-December so my £ cost averaged price is now £1.26; closing price today £3.08.

    Some analysts saying upside to c£6 by year-end but I’m not convinced; £4 seems more likely.

    Won’t be buying any more.

    Anyone actively buying them?

    A little punt on Babcock is going well – bought at £3.96, today’s closing price £4.60; unlikely to buy more unless the price softens – maybe at £4.20.
