Another flurry of share sales

Following hot on the heels of the sale of Greene King, another 10 share sales.

Sell Marston’s @ 105.8 – 10.67% profit
Sell Old Mutual @ 1152.5 – 10.91% profit
Sell Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group @ 709.5 – 0.07% profit
Sell BAT @ 3,355 – 18.13% profit
Sell Pendragon @ 14.33 – 63.34% profit

Sell Close Brothers @ 776 – 6.3% profit
Sell AstraZeneca @ 2,919 – 6.92% profit
Sell SSE @ 1,426 – 9.46% profit
Sell Murray International @ 992 – 13.5% profit

Considering all of these shares have been held for less that a year, and some dividend payments have been received too, the capital gains aren’t bad at all!

A quiet day of trading, relative to last week!

Only 4 trades today.

Purchases of BA., BAT, GSK and RSA – All for my HYP (high yield portfolio).

The FTSE100 is in free-fall at the moment. Shares purchased today are likely to be worth less tomorrow. Scary times for the Amateur Investor.

Topped up holdings in my shares ISA today also. Fidelity Enhanced Income Acc and Fidelity Enhanced Income Inc (bought both the Acc and the Inc version to see if there’s any long term difference).

I’ve still got a little cash to put into my HYP, so I’ll be on the lookout for more buying opportunities over the coming days.
