    pravchaw : Hi Darran - I find the site quite useful for looking at what the top investors are buying and/or selling.  Its good for getting ideas. I am from Cana Thanks, Barclays is one that could go either way, there is an impact continuing to affect the uk retail bank profits linked to the mis selling of payment protection insurance. The new chief exec of the retail bank seems like a good leader, Ashok Vaswani, he has a target of doubling profit before tax in his division ...

    Hi Pravchaw, I have read a number of your posts and you seem a switched on guy. I am from the UK and have recently signed up for the premium service on here,  I know Tesco well as I worked for them for about 15 years before moving to Barclays.  The business is very well run but they started to strip too many hours out of stores.  I would bet they will recover strongly though from the recent dip.

    • John, Thanks for the write-up and your candour in discussing your picks.  I have not followed you in the past but will do so now.  No one could predict the oil crash - so your pick of NOV was totally understadable.  Even the great WB picked it.  MU was a little more difficult to understand as memory chips are a very cyclical industry and probably the time to buy it is now at the bottom of the cycle (if this is the bottom?) as the industry has terrific operating leverage both negative and positive due to high fixed costs.  Again  re SFM "bird flu" is inherently unpredictable.  Unfortuately you got the short end of a trifecta of unpredictableness.  It happens.  I will look at your new picks carefully.  Thanks again.

    • Great feature, I think this is one of the best screeners in the market already.  Is it possible to compare financial statement "in time" i.e., P/E (2014) < P/E (2011) etc? or is this planned for a future release.

    • I would guess that a mosquito or a cockroach or a rat are examples of sucessful species.  :-)  They will likely be around after we humans are gone mostly by our own stupidity.

      As far as value investing is concerened I think Buffet and Munger have placed greater value on temprament than just intellect.

    • Good post.  I enjoyed what I did and the money was great but the politics at work was just hurting my health.  I am glad that I am out.  Its 6 months now and I am very relaxed.  When increasing passive income meets reducing wants, good things happen.
