Please do not read these comments as advice for making decisions on the below stocks.
My financial goals and circumstances may be totally different to yours and my decisions could be totally irrelevant. And readers cannot be sure I have a clue what is going on anyway, or what my track record is!
Before I begin on some notes I made on some of my holdings (warning – this is a long post of individual stock comments), I thought I would just point out a link to an article about the latest offering from Magellan.

No harsh comments about the dog in the picture as he is a close friend of mine.
June 30 is often a time of reflection for investors and I thought I would sit down and do a quick self-review of the financial year gone by. As promised I went through and just noted the stocks that I have mentioned on the blog previously where I still hold, and picked out the ones that have looked shaky of late as at June 30.

So to see the dividend actually declared is still pleasing. Continue reading “REPORTING SEASON updates REF, UOS, SSM, PTB, MEL, APW, MVT, TOP.”
I’d like to go into further details about all the individual companies I hold like other blogs when they release their profit numbers but logistically it’s hard for me to find the time. I will endeavour to at least write a few sentences in situations especially where a holding may have surprised either positively or negatively and note if I continue to hold, sell or maybe even accumulate more.
