    Nope up 32%
    Seriously considering more. The long term future looks good.

    This time last year it was 10% higher up to 35p. With recent news I'd say 40p was achievable. Might dump then.

    ;p

    Those are the sort of comments I like to see. As I have said before I'm in for the long hold, I will keep buying shares whilst they sit under 40p. My aim is really for this stock to be a main part of my portfolio for the future, so I'm not too concerned about current share price.

    I'd advise completely agaisnt holding one stock in one of the most volatile sectors as the main part of your portfolio unless it's a portfolio of pure spare gambling money.
    Greater risk can equal greater reward, but it is also as likely to create a greater fall.

    I've invested less than 1% of my ISA portfolio in it. 5% would be my max for one stock and probably 5-10% in total for mining and resources sector.
    Attitude to risk of course varies from person to person.

    Oh no completely agree. It only makes up 4% of stocks and shares holding. In total mining and resources only make up about 7% of my portfolio. I will probably grow that to around 10% in the medium term. At its current share price the company is significantly undervalued considering the profit it expects to make when opening. Of course there will be debts to pay back, but I would expect a healthy dividend once production is underway and a shareprice at least 5x higher than its current value (of course this is all speculation, for all I know it could go bottoms up next year).

    Anyone ever bought sovereigns or britannias to hide under the floorboards? My cousin has a handful of britannias, 24 carat gold. Just holding them in my hand was an orgasmic experience, quite strange really. Around £950 a pop I think.

    Stock Update - Alliance Pharma

    I have owned this stock since October last year. I bought in at £0.59 a share. Today they are currently worth £0.74p a share. That is a gain of a little over 21% in just under 6 months.

    From the FT:

    Alliance Pharma (APH)Alliance boasts solid organic revenue growth and a bedrock of highly cash-generative products, which fund the buy-and-build strategy. A forward price-to-earnings valuation of 15 times is reasonable for such a well-run company, writes Megan Boxall. The thinking behind Alliance Pharma’s recent acquisition of headlice treatment Vamousse was twofold. Firstly, it has added a third product to its ”star” portfolio, which means management thinks it has great potential for international revenue growth. Indeed, in its first two weeks under a new owner, revenues in France had already matched those generated in the whole of the previous year. Secondly, it has given the group a low-risk opportunity to enter the US — the world’s biggest healthcare market. Vamousse was developed in the US and generates 80 per cent of its sales there. Deputy chief executive Peter Butterfield said the group will continue to look for more US-born drugs to add to the portfolio.But the £16m spent on Vamousse and anaesthetic gel Ametop in December meant the group’s year-end net debt position did not quite hit management’s previous target of two times adjusted cash profits. Chief financial officer Andrew Franklin says he is now aiming to reach that level by the end of the current financial year, assuming no more acquisitions. Still, Alliance has returned to being highly cash-generative. In 2017, free cash flow rose 67 per cent to £22m, from £28m of net profits. Broker Numis expects pre-tax profits and earnings per share of £27.6m and 4.6p, respectively, in 2018, up from £24m and 4p in the reported period.

    I am not intending to add to my position at the present time, but I am very happy with the gains I have seen with Alliance. They will probably remain a part of my portfolio for a long time to come.

    Things are moving along very nicely at the moment:

    Overall my entire portfolio is up 5%. The market turn in the last month has really helped a few of my funds recover.

    Stock Update - Alliance Pharma

    As stated previously one of my favourite stocks at the moment. I have not added to my position in the last 7 months. Back then shares were worth £0.59 a share. Today they are currently trading at £0.80. Really chuffed to bits, and seeing an overall gain 33% on my initial investment.

    Stock Update - Sirius Minerals

    Another one of my long term favourites. I added to this position multiple times, however my total investment is currently up nearly 11%. This is still a long term hold for me, however a little bit of positive movement every now and again is greatly appreciated.

    Can't remember if I suggested the Scottish Mortgage Investment trust or not, but up 17 ddd percent for me at the moment.

    Happy with Sirius Minerals, doing well. Had a small punt on Fevertree as well. Given the amount of G&T my sister in law drinks I knew I was onto a winner.

    Yeserday I dumped half my invstment in the ishares FTSE Tracker ETF. It's at an all time high and I've got a sneaky feeling Brexit and or Korea could go pear shaped. I'll review the rest of my holding next week.

    It'll be Brexit. Korea is banana shaped:
