This is the time of year when the financial magazines (Investors Chronicle, Shares etc.), brokers, newspapers and share tipsters suggest what shares we should all be buying for 2012.
You can trawl through the various newspapers, magazines and websites to find these 2012 share tips, or you can keep an eye on the 2012 share tips section of the ShareTips365 website. It’s being updated regularly as these 2012 share tips are announced.
As I said yesterday, I was keen to reinvest the incoming RSA Insurance dividend as soon as possible, and I decided to reinvest it straight back into RSA shares, picking up some at 102.21p – reducing my overall average buying price for RSA shares very slightly (about 0.5p)
That’s it for this week. See you on the other side of the weekend.
I’m going to be a bit busy this week, so won’t have as much time to devote to the Amateur Investor website as I would like. I am only an Amateur Investor, so making a living sometimes gets in the way of spending time on other projects such as this one.
Anyway, the Dividends are coming in thick and fast at the moment, so reinvesting them to make them start working as soon as possible has been a priority.
Well, the volatility on the FTSE (and around the world) continues. If my calculations are correct there was a 7% swing from the lowest to the highest FTSE100 level today!
The riots in London (and spreading to other major cities in England) is competing for space on the 24 hour news channels with the “rioting” taking place on stock markets.
I purchased more RSA and PNN for my HYP today. RSA goes ex-div tomorrow so I hope I’m in time to pick up the dividends for the extra shares bought today. I’m not entirely sure how far ahead of the ex-div date you need to purchase. Does buying within a Nominee account make any difference. See, I really am an Amateur Investor!
