Port (bleeding badly)



  • We are currently at a point where a 40-70p player can gain 25% value by having a good game. Most people know that they player who has had that good game is probably not good enough to have similar game weeks, so they cash out and go onto the next week.

    Short term Cap app is currently the best way of earning money for traders who don't have 1000s in their portfolio. Until dividends increase, this will continue.

    I currently have shares in 19p Allan Nyom, because I know with an assist, I'll be able able to make 10-15% after commission in a weekend
    I also hold Pogba and can currently see no way he increases by that amount across a whole season.

    Until dividends increase, lower value holds are king



  • @Alpilgrim Same as me; I have Jordan, Orsolini and Deulofeu and I am up 1.12% in the last 24hr plus some divs from them (even many other players in my port drop 1-5p). PB players will be driving the market and it is important to get in them.



  • @Friedeggs i haven’t read all the thread but maybe the first 20 or so. It seems to be Rashford that’s dragging you ( I also hold ). I thought myself he’d go up after the pen on Saturday but he actually went down by 1p immediately after 😢.
    Personally I had a very good week despite Rashford ( large hold in Boadu Stengs and Pellegrini amongst others )



  • Once again I've taken another week's time out.
    I'll be able to enjoy the champions league and Europa League games now, oblivious to the bizarre sell offs that will inevitably happen when my holds perform well (yep, no logic at all on FI at the moment!)

    I agree with what somebody said earlier on in the thread (sorry can't remember who), that the next step FI take is crucial to my own personal future on here - if it's yet another deposit bonus, I'm out. Perfect timing to sell to market.
    If there is any hint of a dividend increase, I'm committed to my portfolio.

    It's not negative to be honest with oneself - the game HAS changed, behaviours HAVE changed. Those saying "it's just a phase, it's cyclical" are kidding themselves. A dividend increase is paramount to restoring value to the top of the index and provide SOME degree of "safe" investment.

    As far as I'm concerned, FI has become too much of a lottery and I'm not enjoying it much at all any more.



  • I’m going to wind down my involvement. I’m going to maybe leave Bale and Carrasco but liquidate all others, there’s too many players in the index and that’s splitting money over all the different shares. Unless you’re certain a player is about to perform exceptionally well then you just shuffling money around and then losing come sale time on commission. More people are considering getting out than coming in



  • I've just worked out that since the 15th of last month the footie has increased by 4.8%.
    In that time my port and cash total value has increased by 9%.

    So for the past 2 and a half weeks where my port has been completely flat (up and down within about 1%) I've still made money, even though its been getting quite frustrating watching the port even itself out with risers and fallers every weekend.

    Looking at results longer term seems to help my outlook at the minute for a bit of perspective, so I'll just try that for now!



  • We're putting cash in for a 3 year hold, maybe the top end is struggling at the moment but I think it's fair to assume there will be a dividend increase or even a share split within that time. For that reason I'm holding on to players like Rashford, Pogba etc, keep some dividends coming in and top up if/when their values dip. I'm trying to get involved at the low end quick flip with new deposits but dont have the time and cant really be arsed to be trading so often paying all the commission.



  • Looking through my port there, I'm only really feeling the pain on 2 players, pog and rash. And I'm still in the green on rash.

    Other than that I've felt it a little bit from sancho (still green), vvd and almada. Other than that it's just stagnant, or just a few pence down on players like fernandes and foden but hardly even worth mentioning them at the minute for what they've lost.

    I dont know if the perception is that high end players across the board are haemmorraghing but from my end it's just a couple really, but they've dropped enough for it to hurt a little bit

    I’m pretty sure you would earn at least 20% over the season if you did nothing. FI want people to buy the best players in the world, there will be a div increase at some point.
    Your port will rocket though when they announce an increase.



  • What do people think FI will do for their birthday announcement, if they’re going to announce anything at all?



  • @Andy Fulham training kits and opening up of mb to all players



  • I wonder if theyd consider having treble media on single and double match days.

  • @MickTurbo said in Port (bleeding badly):

    I think this would make sense given they are opening up MB to all. It could be an indirect interim dividend rise, before a bigger one at the end of the year.



  • Remember when you are seeing gains others will be seeing drops or no gains. Over the last 7 days I'm up 8%. Be patient!



  • Anyone else’s port still dropping consistently? I’m down almost £100 in the past 7 days

    Yeah, most of us are in the same boat.

    At times like these, a diversified portfolio proves it's worth.

    I lose money on big hitters, I make money on small fry, and my portfolio goes up and down like a yoyo.

    Patience is key.



  • I have what i consider to be a balanced port with players at the top end right down to the lower end
    and i have dropped around 1.7% in the last 2 weeks from my highest point.

    im not overly concerned at the moment but im hoping that something changes before the end of the month.



  • I am Bruno Xadas and I will be king of the index!

  • There could be huge drops this evening if Greenwood, Stengs, Boadu etc. don’t get on the scoresheet.
    It could get worse before it gets better imo.
    I hold just over 100 players and while the port is stagnant or slightly down the last while I’m not worrying
