I am new here,
What a great forum.To read about peoples real investing experiences, ideas and knowledge is great. I have tried reading the how to books, but I just get bored and am too lazy to plough through them.
I started putting my hard earned into shares about a year and a half ago when a colleague at work gave me a "hot tip". It was Timbercorp (TIM). I bought $2000 worth and have done very well from them. Since then I have invested around 21k, with the portfolio now worth around 28k. All this has been done with mostly blind luck.I have bought some real turkeys and some gems ( Caltex @ 7.50) I read the financial pages when I can and just seem to trade on whims and feelings.
Well, I think it's time I got my act together, now that the market looks like heading south for a while. I really don't know where to go from here.
I would like to ask what forumites think of those news/advice letters like the Rivkin Report, Aspect Huntley ect. Are they worth the subscription money, if so, can anybody reccomend one.
I look forward to participating in this forum and hope I can contribute in some useful way in the future.
By for now
