Been here for just over a year now with a £1k investment making around a 89% return.
Most of my profit has came through cap app with around £75 in divs returned. My best buys were Madison at 2.29, Sancho and Maguire before things got crazy.
I’ve made countless mistakes though, buying and selling Chilwell, Alejandro Gomez, Grealish, Ricardo P way before I should have...they went on to double and more.
Portfolio has changed now to a selection of more established players.
TAA - purchased too high
My big hope for the next 12 months is Havertz. He looks destined for a big move and is still reasonably priced.
I’ve learnt I can make impulsive decisions that cost me. It is nearly always a poor decision to buy a player on a spike for IPD purposes.
When buying a player I must remember to ask myself why. They either need to be an established PB or have a reason as to why they could grow further.
In terms of the format I’m surprised FI has still fails to allow basics on the app such as cancelling a market sale. IPOs remain a mystery to me too, have never got involved.
Overall a successful year and I’m looking forward to seeing how it will grow further.
