Alright I'm back, after a while. Still riding my investments. Probably not going to get to my £100k target for the year, unless if the US market rips higher. £2500 still to add before the year ends, so will finish the year with £98500 in the market if I don't realise any more gains.

Isn't this the third thread you created of being on 96? Also, wasn't you at £96k two months ago? Looking at the stocks and how much they have differentiated from that time to today, your core investment value should have changed.

I'll give you a chance to explain yourself before calling fake news.

Not with sterling rising.

Oh, you're back.

1. Do you purely use Freetrade or do you use HL?
2. As the GBP has risen drastically, is your portfolio mainly based on UK stocks?
3. Your investments were valued at £96K about two months ago, what about your dividends received?
4. Have you invested in FTSE 100 and FTSE 250 in Oct - if not why?
5. Are you highly invested in popular tech companies e.g. TSLA, APPL, AMZN and so on?

1. Both, since it is lot of hassle to move money between ISA brokers. Also I like having more than one broker incase one goes bust and my money is tied up by administrators till everything is resolved.
2. It is 65% US and 35% UK, I have to keep some UK stocks as a hedge to GBP rising. Out of the 35% UK most of it is Greggs.
3. The includes dividend reinvestment, I don't get much in dividends (around £1300 a year) because a lot of my stocks don't pay a dividend like Square or pay very little dividend like Visa.
4. Not in any index, I just stock pick. Not trying to get a market return, but beat the market.
5. Yes, AAPL, GOOG, FB, V

If you insist on timing your purchase of stocks, be fearful when others are greedy, be greedy when others are fearful.

Are others fearful or greedy about Apple, Facebook and Alphabet?

It's a chance to dispel some finance knowledge, I normally vote Conservative but I am open to a Labour government who isn't trying to bankrupt the country (no Corbyn please). I wouldn't mind a Ed Milliband style government as long as they controlled immigration.

Apple is overbought, Facebook is fair value, Alphabet is fair value.

lol, I agree Square has gone nowhere, but Apple and Greggs have been on a tear. If anything, I have been hit by sterling rising a lot.

I have £98,000 now either way, Greggs has done well today and I have 950 shares of Greggs

Ooh, that’s a very good tip, that also follows what a lot of people have done in the past as well
