Harry Winks. Timed the buy almost at the very bottom at 81p. He seems to quietly increase everyday under the radar and still miles left in the tank to rise.

RE: Is it worth it?
@Timothee-Atouba can anyone honestly AFFORD to lose £10k?! Really?! The issue / query is that I’m fairly risk averse and, having already got a similar amount already invested in this platform, I don’t want to be over exposed for a great length of time hence wanting to keep it in for the minimum possible timeframe whilst taking advantage of the bonus scheme.
Merely asked a question to see if anyone else is in a similar situation and what their thoughts were. Appreciate the concern though. 👍🏼
RE: Is it worth it?
I could probably drag out the sale by 2-3 weeks into July but with other things going on I’m not sure how closely I’ll able to keep tabs on my port.
I have to say, given the large amounts of doom and gloom on this forum I am surprised at the continuous cap app as we get to the end of bonus period.
If people are willing to deposit and spend at this late stage surely they are either in it for the long haul (therefore potentially less of a drop than anticipated) or savvy enough to realise that most of their bonus will be swallowed up by fees, depreciation and commission if they sell quickly.
Given the continuing MB enhanced divs perhaps there won’t be a sell off?
Is it worth it?
I can get my hands on £10k to deposit before the weekend to take advantage of the bonus however it will cost £200 in fees to do so. I then get 10% bonus - £1000
I don’t really want to have any more money tied up long term so if I then sell off the £10k worth of purchases to recredit my account a few days later I’ll likely recoup £9700 (assuming the anticipated 2-3% drop in prices) and then a further 2% loss in sale commission = £9500.
So to cover the £500 loss and the £200 in fees to get the money in the first place, the majority of the bonus has then been swallowed up.
£300 is not to be sniffed it but is it worth it??!
I should have tried to get my hands on the money sooner and taken advantage of the Cap Appreciation / MB Divs but can’t rewind the clock.
Anybody else facing a similar dilemma?! .

RE: James Maddison
@Andy completely agree. He and David Brooks were 2 of my first purchases on here. Both young, British, regular starters, likely to move to top 6 teams. Maddison has added advantage of being English, a few transfer rumours and the U21’s. I have no doubt Brooks will be next summers Maddison!
Barring injury there is no downside. 👍🏼
Return on investment
I have been doing some calculations and worked out my average monthly ROI for 2019 is around the 4% per month mark (on average) - not including deposit bonuses. My port is currently at a value of £8,800 from an initial start point of £5k last year. My aim is to try to reach the £10k mark ASAP and then maintain whilst taking out any further monthly growth to supplement my income. Working on a slightly unambitious 2.5% monthly ROI that’s £10k in the portfolio and £250pm in the back pocket.
I wanted to get an understanding of how my monthly ROI compares to others, am I being over or under ambitious with my targets and how long do people see this general growth continuing?
