Now that I have confirmed than the Premium Trading option has been successfully added to my dealing account with The Share Centre buy making a test purchase of Barclays (BARC), I’m keen to follow up with many more purchases today. Next on my list was Vodafone (VOD), Bwin.party (BPTY) and Caparo Energy (CEL), all of which were tipped in the 29th July issue of Investors Chronicle magazine.
Vodafone I was aware of, of course, but BPTY and CEL less so.
Anyway shares were purchased at 172.73p, 137.37p and 109.5p respectively.
My initial purchases are going to be coming thick and fast as I build my stock list and enjoy trading with no dealing commissions. I’m going to purchase small quantities of shares at the outset (which you wouldn’t normally do because of the effect of dealing commissions).
So in quick succession I dipped in and bought:
Greggs (GRG), Logica (LOG), Rightmove (RMV), Howdens (HWDN), BPI (BPI), Mulberry (MUL), DB X-Trackers Ftse 250 ETF (XMCX), Tesco (TSCO), St James’s Place (STJ), Aviva (AV.), Punch Taverns (PUB), and Ocado (OCDO)
All in small quantities, mainly on the back of recent tips in Shares magazine or Investors Chronicle, or to get a few good yielding shares in my portfolio (VOD and TSCO for instance).
