How do you guys know how many shares you want to buy in a player?
As the title suggest, how many shares do you normally buy for a player you like or is it a bit random? My port is all over the place and I don't really have a clue how many shares to buy in each player :-)
Round numbers to the nearest 5 else I start getting twitchy... I’ve had 31 Ousmane Dembeles for a little while and it makes me edgy every time I see it!
For me personally its:
25-50 for premium players
100 for my long term safe holds
150-300 for my future prospects/cap app holds
@Mr-Fuzzman LMAO😂.. I get that round numbers OCD thing...thought it was just me, a new thread would be a laugh so we can access the effected!😂
For me it makes far more sense buying in £ value.
£25 - on speculative punts (often sub £1 players)
£50 - on the more established top 200
£100 + on the MB / PB big boys
Or whatever £ wise you are comfortable with.
I think it is more balanced than say 100 shares in neymar for £777 and 100 shares Matt target for £48 (purely examples).
Cheers guys. Great strategies rather than random how I feel on the day purchases!!
I’m in the same camp as @Presto. I buy players in chunks (i.e. £x amount of a player) and don’t worry about how many shares I get. Find it easier to compare how each player does when you have the same value of each.
I have 300 minimum and hold in round 00's from there and above apart from maybe one or two players who I'm topping up to get to a round 00
I go for monetary value not share numbers. So I buy a player at £200 / £100 / £50 / £25 depending on my perception of risk.
- I judge the quality of the buy (Low, normal, strong, why are you still waiting)
- I select my investment risk : Safe, Moderate, Speculative
- Depending of the risk of the investment I want to make , I select the best quality from it
- Depending of #3, I buy a fixed % of my portfolio + cash available, no matter the number of shares it gets me.
I normally buy 100 shares in my players, that way each increase is 1p profit. Makes it nice and easy for quick maths and looks a bit tidier.
Any cheap punts I'm not 100% sure about I buy 50 shares to see how they go.
Although I like the structure from NV020 as I'm doing that in my head, but only loosely.
100 shares minimum
Always multiples of 100 or very occasionally multiples of 50. Anything else would be completely unacceptable to my OCD.
Premium players I typically own 150, 200 or 250.
Mid range players 300 or 400.
Cheap players 400 or 600.
Ideally, I'd like to have shares in 10s and 50s. But my investment restricts me to shares of 3, 5 and 10 lol.
1500's unless it's a cap add play then anything north of there. Can't have odd numbers, can't have less than a thousand five hundred
My portfolio must make you OCD weirdos feel physically sick 😂
I’m also a £value man, and don’t care about round numbers. But if I’m selling a few I’ll tidy it up a bit!
I’m planning next season by % of portfolio in different teams and positions, and will add a bit of weighting. Then some “start-up” funding for growth potentials.
So it’s going to get complex, the spreadsheet work has started!
@Coleyscrooge I could probably cope with that if all the shares were random, but you've got 50 in CHO, that makes it annoying 😂
@FI-Manager haha I did that just to tease!
