Paulo Ghiglione 56p. 22 year old Italian winger plays for Genoa. Lots of interest in him at the mo. He's down as a defender on FI but plays as a winger. Had a cracking pre season 2 goals 1 assist and has 2 assists in his first 2 league games. Can see his value soaring this year. If there was one player in my port to keep, it'd be him....

RE: FI A steep learning curve!
I joined before the split and got burned on the craziness that followed in the few hours afterwards. It took a couple of months to recover. Key things I've learned since:
- Dont panic buy / sell
- Research players before buying
- Plan your exit price for a player when you buy him - If you want to make 20% on player, stick with that and sell when you've reached your goal
- Is the player good value? Avoid players you think are overpriced (e.g. imo Greenwood, Sancho), find players that are under priced.
- Attacking, young players will attract better rises
- Structure your portfolio to have a good mix of dividend winners (e.g. Pogba, Neymar), safe bets (e.g. Stirling, Kane), high potential (e.g. Ghiglione, Ganago)
- Enjoy it!
RE: Bold prediction but Neymar and Pogba both to be 7.50 by the end of august
@NewUser297389 It will take £250k to be put on Pogba and £340k for Neymar to get them up to £7.50 each. Not sure if it will but I hope it does :)
RE: Is £7 the limit?
I've done some work on this today. Looking at the top 5 (Pogba, Sancho, Neymar, Mbappe and Stirling). If you assumed they all had an FI value of £7.00 for the next 12 months and provided the same level of dividends (MB and PB) that they did in the last 12 months you would get the following:
Pogba = 43% return
Sancho = 1% return
Neymar = 33% return
Mbappe = 4% return
Sterling = 8% return
given 4 or the 5 are low risk in terms of the Index value (Sancho bubble?)...it's clear where to put your money if you're after mid to long term returns.
Whilst I'm at it....it's worth looking at these from a dividend return perspective over the last 12 months (based on current FI value):
Ronaldo = 78% return
Alexis Sanchez = 71% return
Ozil = 60% return
Salah - 31% return
Lukaku = 35% return
Hazard = 35% return
RE: Is £7 the limit?
I tend to agree there is more value lower down. There are plenty of players from 50p to £2 who represent greater growth potential despite not necessarily picking up the same dividend returns of the likes of Pogba and Naymar. Whilst the Index exponentially grows, surely the smart investment is in FI growth rather than dividend returns?
Is £7 the limit?
I'm interested to hear peoples opinions as to whether a player's value will increase much beyond the £7 mark.
Both Pogba and Neymar finished last season at £7.50+ and despite a huge amount of MB over the summer and both players have very strong PB potential, both their values seem to have settled around the £7 mark even after strong investment in the Index in the first couple of weeks in the season.
Add to this Mbappe's, Sancho's and Sterling's value soaring but again appearing to stall around the £7 mark. Is this the limit given the current dividends on offer or is the opinion that people will continue to invest in these high value players?
