Under the Radar doesn't just say "buy and goodbye" for Small Caps05.04.2013

A person interested in subscribing asked whether we give "sell" signals. Here is our response:

We don’t just say buy and goodbye! After major news we update our tips, the summary of which is on our Research Tips Tracker, which subscribers can download. Subscribers also get access to our quantitative rankings system, which gives an idea of whether there is share price and earnings momentum in a stock, and how much risk (or share price volatility) there is. That comes out each Wednesday.

Also, it’s important to look at our model portfolio, which is run by a professional fund manager, and at the activities of our new speculator, Ivo Budelman. These show that you don’t always get ideas right, but you need to minimise your losses and let your winners run. Risk is a very individual thing, but seeing how a portfolio is run gives you an idea of the level of risk that you are comfortable with.

Our portfolio manager’s return in the past year has been 13 per cent, which is based on investing a portion in an index related fund, and also buying and selling Small Caps, and lastly, holding cash.

The share market over the long term returns about 10.5 per cent. Small caps give you ability to outperform this.

Best wishes
