@Andy Mbappe's PB average is 129 this season. Hardly awful. 3 scores over 200. For a young forward he scores very well. He's unlucky to be competing for PB with Neymar most weeks.

8 of Kimmich's top 10 scores this season have come from playing CM, even when you adjust for the removal of the clean sheet bonus, so I really think the reclassification is being overstated and just assumed to be a bad thing without people checking the facts.
Removing the CS bonus takes his PB average down from 177 to 170, but as I say he consistently scores higher from CM anyway.
I think even at his current price, as a midfielder Kimmich is underpriced.

@MickTurbo I don't think they've ever done push notifications before each IPO though have they? They should have realised that would cause absolute chaos.
RE: Moratorium on all IPO's until NASDAQ sort the IT
@NewUser159387 Messi has returned 15% so far this season and I would bet that the likes of Neymar will be well up around 20% or higher dividend yield by the end of the season. So far the prices of the top players have not risen to meet the impact of the dividend increase so I wouldn't worry about diminishing dividend returns yet!
RE: One million rockets
Does anyone expect that if another PB league territory was added, we would also see media outlets from that territory added to the MB list?
With the other territories FI has expanded into so far this hasn't been a big issue as they haven't been PB league countries but I can see there being a bit of an issue with their offer if they are opening up in other PB countries and not including those country's media sources.
It would surely mean some of the good PB holds currently in the Bundesliga (and Germany internationals like Kroos) would have a nice little bonus price rise.
RE: Port dropping?
@Sav2000 @LittleFish You're both absolutely spot on. The berating and belittling of premium holds is damaging to the product and it also really highlights the selfishness of some traders on the whole.
Jumping on and off low end players who stand very little chance of ever winning divs, pocketing cap app at the expense of some sucker trader who's willing to buy them off you - and it usually comes with a pump of some sort (sometimes more subtle than others) either here or over on Twitter.
Meanwhile you get all these traders calling the likes of Neymar a bad hold because you could make more cap app holding some 30p player. It's great for you if you can do that, but for every trader it works out well for, it works out bad for another (the one who bought the shares off you).
We should be celebrating the top end players who constantly provide us with a stream of dividends - when you win divs with Neymar or Messi you are winning "against" FI, not against other traders - that's why I love premium holds.
RE: PB is a fix
@Black-wolf Yet Kimmich has still scored 200+ more times than any other player on the index this season, even without the clean sheet bonuses.
The only reason he hasn't been winning the divs is luck - he's had absolutely rotten luck with the matchday scores on the days he has posted big scores. He has more scores over 200 than anyone else and has the 4th highest PB average of all players to play 10+ games this season, so it's not like he's not scoring enough points to be winning dividends, or not posting high enough peaks to be challenging at the top. He actually doesn't need the clean sheet bonus to be a contender.
The fact that he's been so unlucky so far this season makes him a highly attractive prospect right now in my opinion as the law of averages says he will win eventually, and his overall wins this season are likely to settle up more or less where they should be. That could mean he will be in for a good few PB wins in the second half of the season. The fact he's been scoring highly and not winning shouldn't be a reason to stay away - if anything I think it's a good reason to buy as it means he's undervalued.
RE: Deposit bonus ever again likely?
In the last bonus period I intentionally avoided buying all the big movers who were going to fly up and then crash back down again, and instead waited for the dust to settle and bought up players who's prices were likely to remain stable. I actually didn't care for any cap app (other than to cover commission) as my focus was solely on gaining the bonus.
If there was another bonus I would do this again. It's very tempting to jump on Neymar and ride the cap app but if you do that there's a chance you will have to sell up before the end of the bonus period and forego the bonus itself. How much cap app you make is then dependent on how quickly you get out or how long you hold your nerve.
It was a much less stressful approach to seek out the stable players where money isn't flooding in and out of, and then gently drip them back to the market after the bonus period ended.
Not too long ago traders were waxing lyrical about Rashford and talking him up as the best hold on the index. It was inexplicable that his price dropped so much - totally irrational and a massive overreaction to some indifferent form. Anyone with eyes can see he's a brilliant proposition in FI terms - young, England international, Man U, exciting player who will attract MB and chances are he will keep getting better.
£5 is a fair price at this stage, so sanity has been restored, but given his future prospects I think he should be priced significantly higher fairly soon. Another couple of big PB scores and a few MB wins and he will have really proven his worth to any doubters.
