    Tom where do you do your research? how do you find this short-medium term hold stocks?
    My portfolio is built up from a lot longer term holds, been focusing on growth companies, and i know what to look for when searching for them, but for short term positions, how do you go about researching?

    This thread seems to have died.

    Anyone have shares in DPL? What are your views on the takeover bid?

    Just to try and inject some enthusiasm back into this thread.

    Take a look at LHD, current price 14.12p per share, i will post back very shortly with an update... Great buying opportunity.

    Keep an eye on Blacks Leisure Group mate. I work for them - interesting things happening! If a takeover bid ensues, share prices could rise dramatically

    Will keep an eye out mate! Thanks!

    Yeah, LHD didn't go as i thought it would, still great long term future but the market reacted wrongly to a takeover bid being turned down.

    I hope so, I've only just found this thread! I read the first dozen pages and realised I was still in 2010! A lot has changed in the world since then.

    Off to buy the NT book as recommended!

    Any news on Rolls Royce

    Rummers of a take over seem to have quietened down

    I bought at £1.97 BTW + getting extra script dividends every 6 months on top

    Tom, I think you should do a refreshers course on this and set-up a new challenge for yourself and blog to the community. #justsaying :)
