Good to see Jovic in. He's looked great this year. Think he'll continue to rise. Nastasic could be a good shout too - hopeful of recovering from injury in time and in squad
Nastasic - I think very undervalued and prime for a rise" Will play in WC and maybe a return to EPL - low price = low risk investment with nothing but upside. I am a small holder of him and looking for a rise to get to 70% of Virgil & The Leicester centre half I.e. £1..
Definitely a good strategy and relatively low risk. This is one of several strategies I use.
It's all about having a balance on your portfolio that your comfortable with. At the moment, I'm comfortable that if Ronaldos price declines, his dividends will still be paying out, and ill still be making money.
As highlighted by Gareth earlier, before he started on the vino. The key to Ronaldo will be jumping ship at the right time.
I just think alot of sailors are throwing themselves overboard too early, when there isn't even more than a few holes in this particular vessel.
This isn't helped by Gareth standing in the crows nest screaming 'iceberg iceberg right ahead' ...
A very entertaining read & that iceberg is certainly getting closer for Ronaldo holders. Jump ship....... Jump ship 🤣
People forget he is only 25.
However, the medical condition that he was diagnosed with should have alarm bells ringing. People have suggested it's his attitude - I disagree.
I'm actually surprised he returned to professional football. The margins to gaining an edge over fellow athletes and the sheer pace of modern day professional football I just can't imagine him fulfilling his potential and I would expect him to have a very mediocre season as he had this year next season and beyond that I would expect Mario to either drop down levels or even and more likely retire early.
I wish him all the best as he was outstanding when he first broke through and it's a shame that he's had these medical issues.
one thing i've noticed around the quiet times when no games are on is that the market does drop in general and the biggest players (ie the Ronnys, Salah's, Messi's) seem to take the biggest hit for obvious reasons (ie they cost more so will fall more)??? All I can presume it's down to is simply 'market correction' as these players will still earn you dividends but they can't keep being driven up in value as they need to have their down turn. Just like in real markets!!
I think we'll see a steady decline in all players over the coming weeks bar perhaps those ones with transfer speculation then when the World Cup starts the upturn will be positive for all... Don't panic, it can't always be UP, UP, UP just take those media dividends and sit tight and look at the longer term picture with your holds...
On another note..... great time to get in on the top players because their price will be lower now then it will be in a month and in August for that matter!
Kane scored 30 league goals which would be impossible if he only was on form for half a season I reckon. Kane I sold because he's too highly priced and England will do average I reckon.
Salah I got rid of in case he moves to Spain and his price rockets down. I think he may be a one season wonder and go down by around 15 goals next season.
Ronaldo is winning buzz but I think whilst he's at his highest it would be best to get out. I would say that will be after the World Cup as I expect him to do well in a good Portugal team which includes Pepe, B. Silva, Moutinho, Guedes, A. Silva and Ronaldo himself. They should be very good going forward with a steady defence.
Ronaldo is doing well however I can see the same happening to him as Ibrahimovic where there was a big slide. You want to get out when he's at the top, not when he's at the bottom is my advice. x
For months and months I watched this geezer rise on the index, not getting on until £2+ (ish can't remember exact details, day of first trader meet after Xmas when he also won pb?) anyway I'm looking at him thinking - he's wank for FI I don't get the consistent rise! Ended up selling at £4+ still none the wiser. Good player, great future, great number one (answering my own question here but for goodness sake, he's so overvalued). Volland is starting to live up to the potential of God knows how many year ago. Equally what's he returned? Naff. If you wanna German forward your best bet is Muller or Reus. Muller is worth more than Werner for me the old bull is about to put the young bullock in his paddock
@NewUser53352 I got onto Volland a week ago. He seems a quality player and quite cheap. A premier league club may buy him in another year and he'll be worth double. If not he'll still rise when he wins PB or scores more goals.
@GarethG I joined in September 2016, and bought in and out of Neymar and Messi for the following six months. They both hovered around £1.20 - £1.50 for ages as there was only a single 5p MB payout and they rarely finished first. I definitely remember selling a few hundred Neymar for about £1.80. When Treble MB was announced I ended up with 100 @ £3.00 average. Sold them a few months ago for £11ish as I wanted to realise the profit and derisk (he was by far my biggest hold). The Index looked very different 18 months ago so I'm not beating myself up too much at not spotting the future value and buying many more. My big relief is I never got suckered into buying the Ibrahimovic snake oil.
I do think you're right and the top players now are probably more secure and safe bets than 18 months ago - when some older players were really enjoying their swansong. But there'll be some big changes by this time next year; and hopefully big profits to be made! I guess the real trick is finding who that player is...
I got Witsel but trying to move him on. Not going up as expected. How long for IS when new IPO’s come on? Did someone say it was a couple of weeks? I’m in the sell queue and the price has been fluctuating but still not sold any. Who knows how many people are in front of me in the queue :/
