I haven't....

I buy in when we have a good P/E ratio, good dividends, good dividend cover, the stock has corrected in the last year and there is nothing fundamentally wrong with the company.

Not too bad, but alot will be down to the turbulent markets these past couple of months. Have you diversified outside of your stock selection?*

Do you have experience in investing? Because if you don't, I'd stay away from investing so much money at once. Maybe invest in a Vanguard fund or something?

I forgot to add Legal and General.

So it must be like 11/12 different securities. Plus a fund (which I hate personally) but it gives me exposure to India. The fund must have 70+ stocks.

Yes, I have to have experience, or I wouldn't risk 25K.

I don't like funds, too much diversification into crap you shouldn't be holding (like banks)

I only hold funds if I lack knowledge in a particular economy, like India for example. I don't want to take a punt and hold a security on the Bombay Stock Exchange I know nothing about. Better to hold a Kotak or Jupiter India Fund.

Only £25k?

Not that much really, not that I play the stock market. But if I did and lost £25k I wouldn't miss it.

Be brave OP! Why not put more in?

I don't have anymore to put in. You don't really lose money in the stock market, I mean it's very hard to lose money in the long run holding good businesses.

I want to put in more, I want to have 100k in stocks. That will provide 4/5k a year alone in dividend income.
