The British Financial press, along with most of the major investment banks, are tipping defensive stocks for this year. I disagree, thinking that they should have tipped these stocks last year and are making a big mistake by using past performance as a measure for the future (as all the adverts warn us against).

However I appear to be in a minority, with most other investors going for defensive plays - what does everyone else think about this.

By the way - personal tip of Symphony Plastics (apparently they've got a new biodegrable plastic bag out, and with Government regulation making it more costly for the normal type, hopefully incentives will be introduced to let Supermarkets go for the biodegradable option - reports out that Sommerfield already have).

Stock Tips?

Don't make me laugh.

The Daily Torygraph Last year tipped: Energis and SFI and lotsofothercarp.

There are lotsof small caps on yields of over 8% and with no chance of going bust and at prices where they are at a multiple of over 4x turnover.

That says : cheap cheap.. but you depend on yield cos there's no guarantee they will go up - not in this market...

A few general insurers Chaucer (CHE) (wait for retracement) and spec mining (Cambridge Mineral Resources CMR) look good bets..
Also possibly Fenner.. engineering.

Remember the wa#kers who write in newspapers do NOT understand Balance Sheets... (wots this thing called Intangible Assets?:)

The only sensible tips/clues can be picked from charts and even that only helps when you learn enough to pick for yourself...

Excellent advice.


Here is some from Investors Chornicles magazines and major financial press opinion from last year...

"Alliance & Leicester is worth holding for a bid premium...

Royal Bank of Scotland has confirmed its growth credentials by beating Barclays to buy ABN Amro...

The Competition Commission would never let any of Britain's top five banks merge...

Northern Rock looks a bargain...

Housebuilders will do okay even if prices fall because of their landbanks and the shortage of homes."



Enjoy... :cheesy:
