Top Ten Share Tips For 2013

Wellthisiswhatithink has a grand an honourable tradition of share trading. It goes something like this:

  1. Get a share tip from a mate who has 73 irrefutable reasons why it’s brilliant. (Note: NOT inside knowledge, thank you.)
  2. Ask a few people who should know if it’s a good idea. Get a series of “on the one hand this, on the other hand that” type answers that mean nothing.
  3. Scrape together every piggy bank in the house and invest what to anyone else would be considered a paltry sum, but which is to Mrs Wellthisiswehatithink is her “we will get a holiday this year” fund.
  4. Watch the shares instantly enter terminal decline, accompanied by “we don’t think this should be happening bleating from the Board of said dead duck.
  5. Watch the Board issue more and more shares to try and stay afloat, eventually reducing my holding to the value of a packet of Dunhill and a small beer.
  6. Give up.

However, there are those in the world who claim to be able to forecast likely winners with some certainty, and for those of you who dabble, I provide a small selection here.
