Feeling Guilt at the Greek Hovel – Not Making the Mental Leap

1725 days ago

There are different forms of guilt that I feel as I sit in the Greek Hovel. The worst is as I peer outside and see the sun shining on a glorious day. Yet I will be heading back inside soon to finish another article on shares, on Quindell or whatever.

In side of me something associate sun and the smell of a Greek hillside with holidays. What on earth am I doing spending holiday time hammering away at my PC?  The Mrs makes that point every time we go on holiday and it is a fair one.

I have not fully made the mental leap that this is not a holiday. The Mrs has bought a house which is one of our two homes. The nature of my work means that sometimes I will live in Bristol and sometimes I live here in the Mani, Greece.  This is my home and just as in Bristol I am working from home.  And so gradually the feelings of guilt about now being down at the beach or just lazing around doing nothing are going.

As it happens I am not a great one for the beach and sitting around doing nothing does not make me relaxed. I hate it!

Here are other feelings of guilt. Work on the house is a bit behind schedule. Do not get me wrong, enormous progress has been made but just not as much as I would have liked.  The wildlife are excluded from the redoubt and it is cooled by my fan. I have a shower and the internet. And gradually the wildlife exclusion zone around the house is expanding. But I am behind my self-imposed schedule. I feel guilt on that front. But then I feel guilty about Ben Turney, Steve Moore, Darren Atwater and Princess Leia if I do not pull my weight for ShareProphets. They are working in far less pleasant surroundings I cannot abandon them can I?

It’s a lose lose situation. However I spend my time there is guilt. But if I have to be somewhere feeling guilty, there are far worse places to be. And I am now accepted almost entirely that this is my home, this is not a holiday.

It was 24 months ago last week but looking forward is far more fun!

1790 days ago

This morning www.TomWinnifrith.com went down. Uh oh…apologies all round, we forgot to renew the domain name! Apologies for that, we are two years old today. It is a week of anniversaries and look backs. On 18th May I “parted company” with Rivington, the company I founded as an employee. Rivington said that it had issued me a 24 month rolling contract as an advisor to t1ps. That was of course not true and I was on my way.

And so two year ago today this domain name was registered and the first article appeared here a few days later.

That’s enough on looking back. Today the 36th writer to appear on www.Shareprophets.com made his explosive debut – welcome to an old friend Dru Edmonstone HERE. Tomorrow I know that I can enjoy a family half term day and that Steve Moore – who has worked alongside me since he left University – can also have a day off and all is in safe hands. Ben Turney and Darren Atwater will mind the ship and I need not worry.

Next week we hire another full time staff member for our websites as they move into becoming a proper operation and we hope for more exciting news on UK Investor Show 2015.

Above all writing has never been more enjoyable and never has my material been so widely read before. “The Maverick Tipster” has become “The Sheriff of AIM” and life’s a ball.

There is ever more to look forward to. Thank you, as ever, for continuing to read my articles and to all of those who have chosen to work alongside me.

Steve Moore finally gets this twitter thing figured out

1820 days ago

Steve Moore who started working with me when he left University and has been in comrade in arms ever since has – after one false start – finally got the hang of this twitter thingy. I do wonder if he is a 90 year old disguised as a young person some times. 

Steve co-edits the Nifty Fifty with myself and Lucian Miers and is also a contributor to www.shareprophets.com 

To follow his tweets search him out at @SMooreN50

Join Myself, Dan Levi, Malcolm Stacey and the share tipsters at our bloggers café on April 5

1878 days ago

We are ringing the changes at The UK Investor Show on April 5 in Westminster. One big change is the introduction of the bloggers café – a special area where writers like Brokerman Dan, Doc Holiday, Malcolm Stacey, Malcolm Palle from Mining Maven, Robert Sutherland Smith, Steve Moore and myself will spend much of the day, blogging, tweeting and just chatting to anyone who wants a chat over a coffee.  Hopefully my fave Tory blogger Charlotte Argylle will also join us at the cafe.

Of course we are not the main attraction but this is another reason for you to book a seat at the UK Investor Show this year -. Why book in to attend? 

* A top location: the QE2 Centre in the heart of Westminster

* A cracking line-up of big name presenters. Nigel Wray, Mark Slater, Evil Knievil and I am back from 2013. But we are joined this year by 40 other speakers including Terry Smith, the tech queens Vin Murria and Cassandra Harris; Mining gurus Amanda van Dyke, Dominic Frisby and Matt Suttcliffe and blogger supremo Paul Scott and now the Blinkx Destroyer Ben Edelman.

*Real variety – main stage sessions on value investing, Bitcoins, mining investing, crowd-funding, tech investing, oil & gas, shareholder activism and much more

*Better and more exhibiting companies. Last year 50 companies attended the UK Investor Show. This year we already have 90 booked in and counting – the latest booking came just today: Tangent Communications (TNG) - a very profitable AIM listed media company. And most of these PLCs will also do a 20 minute presentation in smaller side room for those who really want to know more.

You can get full details of the speaker line up HERE

You can get full details of the main stage presentations HERE

You can get full details of the exhibiting companies HERE

Already well over half the seats for this event have been booked with 4% of the tickets going yesterday alone!

I look forward to seeing you on April 5 in Westminster

The First Trade in my Christmas ETX SpreadBet Challenge – buy @UK

1973 days ago

Well here goes…I have never done a spread bet in my life until just now. I am challenging Steve Moore to a trading challenge to run until Christmas. And I am now underway.

We have both opened accounts with ETX and been given £50 to trade small cap shares. If we were to trade Forex or indices we could get another £450 free. This is not a special deal for us you too can get your free trades with ETX starting right now.

All you need to do to trade is to open an account which you can do in minutes – CLICK HERE

My first trade ( using my free £50) was to buy @UK (ATUK) at just over 55p with a 48p stop loss. The Closet Chartist says that the stock is heading to 80p, I like the management – having backed them at c5p a few years ago – and I hope this is a winner.

Any profits that I make on my Christmas trading challenge will go to the Woodlarks charity.

You can start spreadbetting small caps with ETX right now HERE

Open your spreadbetting account with our partner ETX ( as I have done) and get up to £500 free – offer ends November 30th

1980 days ago

We are approached by all sorts of spread-betting firms to partner up with them. After one not so great experience I am very picky about who we deal with. And so I am delighted to say that we have kissed the frogs and without reservation teamed up with ETX.

I have opened an account ( for a Christmas trading challenge with Steve Moore) and you too can do so here

Shareprophets will earn a small percentage of the spread each time you deal with an ETX account opened here so I hope that you do open such an account.

It was pretty much the same deal on offer across the board so why did we pick ETX?

1. They will allow you to spreadbet all the normal bets ( indices, forex, blue-chips, commodities) but almost uniquely they will also allow you to place a bet ( long or short) on small caps with a market cap of as little as £10 million. So you can short like Evil in a way you could not before but also place leveraged buy bets on the long tack.


2. ETX is a long established and pukkha firm which won’t be disappearing overnight like some newbies in this market. They are good guys.

3. You get a bonus of up to £500 for just opening an account. Can’t say fairer than that.

I will start my Christmas trading challenge with Steve (any profits we make on that will go to the Woodlarks charity) next week.  Spreadbetting is not suitable for everyone, your leverage means that losses are in theory unlimited.

But if you fancy a free bonus for signing up and want to spreadbet small caps I hope that you open an account HERE

Remember the deadline to open is November 30th so you should open the account as soon as possible if you want the special bonus of up to £500.

The Joys of the 4.47 AM from Bristol

1985 days ago

The Mrs hates me catching this train as she is woken up by my alarm clock at 4 am. I understand her point and so only take it now and again as a treat, when I have to be in London early. But it is a treat. It is the last train before 9.30 which does not cost a second mortgage to catch, but it is the best train of the day.

The cab speeds through a deserted City in minutes. There is no traffic, no jams which serve simply to annoy. A quick fag and I climb aboard a deserted train. There is just one other person in coach D with me as we prepare to depart. And so I am sitting with a desk to myself, able to stretch my legs and type away.

There are no reserved seats from Chippenham or Swindon to worry about. This is my seat and my desk all the way. Only at Reading will the train start to fill up.

By the time I get to London I shall have completed my first four articles of the day and will get to my desk at Real Man Pizza well before 7 AM ready to load those pieces up, sub two from the Closet Chartist and one from Malcolm Stacey and have a stiff black Americano before starting the working day.  

By 8 AM six of the day’s ten articles on shareprophets will therefore be loaded ready for publication, by nine I could plausibly be done, only awaiting Steve Moore’s word perfect copy.

And that leaves the whole of the rest of the day for other things: my experimental Christmas pudding pizzas, lining up more stands for www.ukinvestorshow.com, chatting to more customers and staff from the Empire who wish to move to the rebel alliance, etc.

I have a full day free for making mischief. That is the real joy of the 4.47

Looking back a year tomorrow as Malcolm Stacey joins us from Sharecrazy

2044 days ago

A year ago tomorrow t1ps.com, the website I set up in my bedroom published a defamatory and malicious piece about me in the name of Steve Moore, James Faulkner and Richard Gill. Our connection was utterly severed and I found myself working alone in the world running just this, my personal blog. Boy has the world changed.

As you may know Steve Moore was on holiday when that piece appeared and when he discovered what had gone out in his name and without his consent or knowledge, he resigned on principle. Then there were two of us. Soon after Darren Atwater took a pay cut, quit and moved to join us. Then Lucian Miers followed suit. Then Robert Sutherland Smith. Paul Nicholson, from the Isle of Man has hooked up with us since. And tomorrow, a year to a day since that infamous episode Malcolm Stacey – the founder of ShareCrazy.com joins our merry band with his debut piece on www.shareprophets.com

 

In the space of one year we have turned a small personal blog and a loss making restaurant into a profitable restaurant plus 4 websites (this one – now with more than 7,000 registered users, The Nifty Fifty, www.shareprophets.com and Onefreesharetip.com ). Two more websites will go live this Autumn.

In just one year www.UKInvestorShow has established itself as a profitable, credible must attend event. Already just under 50% of the stands at our April 5 2014 show are booked. Unlike some (mentioning no names) we do not just claim that as a statistic to impress we name those who have booked. We have real bookings AND NAME THEM TO PROVE IT!.

The Sefton episode has shown the bravery, integrity and judgement of those I choose to work with these days. Not just the established names mentioned above or well-known folks like Alpesh Patel and Clem Chambers but rising stars like Doc Holiday and Dan Levi who I have hooked up with over the past year and who I enjoy working with and vice versa. We are all having fun together and that is why shareprophets and the other websites we run are growing so fast.

Back at the old place one more website closed this month (UK350) and Sharecrazy – once a vibrant, active profitable operation has not seen articles filed for months. Its users have nearly all gone. That is why Malcolm Stacey, the founder of sharecrazy has today abandoned his “baby” and will now be writing a daily column for shareprophets.com and also joining our all-star 2014 line up at www.ukinvestorshow.com

I did not need to offer Malcolm a pay rise to move. He wants to work with folks with experience whom he respects and on a site that is vibrant and growing fast.

In 12 months the list of ex t1ps folks who have moved over to the editorial team that, with Sefton has shown its flair, mettle judgement and integrity, has grown fast. Just to add to the pain round at the old place I will not name the others who are talking to me about switching but I should let you know that talks are ongoing.

I am delighted to be working with a legend like Malcolm once more. Over to Malcolm who today stated:

Over 13 years at Sharecrazy, the objectives of jargon-busting, not taking shares too seriously and still making oodles of cash for small investors were never diluted.

Now it’s time for me to move on to an exciting new website, Shareprophets.com, which promises to continue and grow the amazing ‘Sharecrazy spirit’ and whose growth in user numbers since its April launch has been explosive. That demonstrates the quality of its editorial content.

It’s a thrilling prospect for me because I’ll be writing alongside big names in Shareland –Steve Moore, Lucian Miers and Robert Sutherland Smith. Plus, the main writer is courageously out-spoken Tom Winnifrith, the walking encyclopaedia of share-issuing companies and possibly the most respected share-picker in the Square Mile.

That’s some incentive to move, as we say in the Punter’s Return.”

I am almost blushing. Cheers Malcolm. I am in your fan club too. It is time to rock and roll together once more. And you are right, it is an exciting time at Shareprophets

Happy 1st Anniversary Darren & Martha

2066 days ago

Just a public note to Darren Atwater and Martha Gall who tonight are celebrating their first wedding anniversary. Given that Darren works out of RMPC three days a week they are not celebrating with us in Clerkenwell.  Darren was the second (of six) RSH employee to leave and come to work with me (Steve Moore won the gold medal) and a good friend in good times and bad. He mucks in at RMPC donning a waiter's outfit when needed. But he is really the brains behind www.shareprophets.com.  Apparently Martha's parents are delightfully right wing and their opinion of the son-in-law soared when they started reading this blog and realised who he worked with. To two of London's three finest Canadians ( the Goddess is the third), The deluded lefty and I wish you a very relaxing and romantic evening.

New tip on my Nifty Fifty within 24 Hours and the old t1ps team 100% reunited as one at RMPC

2073 days ago

While thousands ( sometimes tens of thousands ) of folks read my scribblings here and on shareprophets.com a far more select audience read what is on my premium site, the Nifty Fifty, which I produce with Steve Moore and Lucian Miers. My best ideas go there first. It is expensive but you pay for getting the best ideas first.

In our heyday at t1ps Steve Moore and I had a great track record. Over 11 years and c 240 tips our average gain was c 42.5%. Of course t1ps is now written by a couple of fellows who were still at primary school when the sire was launched. They claim the record of Steve, myself (and Robert Sutherland Smith) as their own in marketing material but it is OUR record. I can assure you that we never outsourced to primary schools.

Robert Sutherland Smith has been writing with me here and at www.shareprophets.com for a couple of months now and the news this week is that he will also be leaving t1ps for good at the end of September. The last of the four staff who I really rated at t1ps is now 100% over the line and working with me again on a full time basis now: Steve, Robert, Darren and Lucian. It has taken less than a year.

Looking back on that year I reflect that it took me 6 years at t1ps.com to create a media organisation with 15,000 readers. It took another four years to get that number up to 50,000 (which is where it is today, albeit falling slowly). Tom Winnifrith.com was launched as a serious blog about a year ago on my return to England. Since then Nifty Fifty was launched on October 28th 2012, OneFreesharetip.com on January 2nd 2013 and Shareprophets.com on April 13th 2013. In less than one year the number of registered readers across the four sites is in excess of 25,000 and the rate of growth is accelerating.

It is easier second time around and when you work only with folks you rate.

Anyhow in the spirit of RSS Steve and I shall be serving up our next tip on the Nifty Fifty this weekend. Robert would approve as it is 100% tangible assets and cash backed. And a growth story.

You can access the Nifty Fifty here

John Inverdale, Women’s Tennis and the disappearing lesbians

2114 days ago

Like most folk with the exception of Steve Moore I have zero interest in watching Tennis. If I can summon up the energy the men’s game has more power and skill and is what I would watch if forced. The women’s game? If most of us (men) are honest we watch it if a good looking bird is playing. Even then our attention span is limited.

And that brings me to Ann Jones and the lesbians but first to John Inverdale (the laddish TV presenter) who is in the soup for stating about the new ladies champion:

Do you think Bartoli’s dad told her when she was little 'You’re never going to be a looker? You’ll never be a Sharapova, so you have to be scrappy and fight.’”

In other words Inverdale states the bleeding obvious which is that the birds who make most money out of Tennis do so because they are lookers and can model swimwear. If you are not a looker to earn an equal amount you have to be a better player.

Yet Inverdale’s comments have been met with howls of anguish and demands that he be sacked. One thinks of all the current BBC scandals (who covered up for the nonces? the big payoffs for failure, the general waste, etc.) and then realises that the cause of the day just has to be to sack a bloke who actually said something that was factually correct.

So in Airstrip One what Inverdale should have said was “women’s tennis is as exciting as men’s tennis as a physical demonstration of skill and power, the best player won and it is shocking that in this sexist world she will not earn as much as some Eastern European blond bird with big tits and nice legs” Okay, I could not quite get the last bit right but that is the gist of what it is demanded that Inverdale should say. Not the truth but what is acceptable.

Needless to say the BBC has apologised grovelingly for Inverdale’s remarks and he will no doubt be forced to do the same.

Meanwhile 1969 ladies winner Ann Jones has chipped in with a claim that there are not as many lesbians in women’s tennis as there used to be adding that “I think the female tennis players veer slightly towards the man-ish end of the female society.”

Frigging hell. Had Inverdale said that he would have been hung, drawn and quartered for commenting on the physical traits of women tennis players? The falling number of lesbians is clearly a matter of intense interest. This is no doubt a result of homophobia, blah, blah, blah and I await an initiative to get more lesbians into tennis. It is only a matter of time.

t1ps reunited… Robert Sutherland Smith joins the Shareprophets team

2143 days ago

It is always good to be firmly reunited with old friends. Robert Sutherland Smith and I started working together along time ago when he was only 148. I am pleased to say that he is, as of yesterday, devoting his freelance enterprises to www.shareprophets.com – thus the four key writers who made t1ps what it (once) was: myself, Steve Moore, Zak Mir and RSS are all reunited again over at www.shareprophets.com

RSS will continue to pen a monthly Pond Life column here but three times a week he will be analysing a FTSE 350 yield stock over on Shareprophets. Having started his City career in 1967 ( the year before I was born) RSS knows what he is talking about.

While some financial websites groups have recently admitted to sharply falling numbers I am delighted to say that after less than two months www.shareprophets.com already has 7,000 registered users who go there for free share data on all UK listed stocks as well as breaking news and cutting analysis from 20 writers with the men who made t1ps what it was at the heart of it.

If you have not registered you can do so for free at www.shareprophets.com

Getting Life in balance – time for a Holiday

2193 days ago

I have not had a holiday since last summer and I am absolutely shattered – mentally and physically. And so my partner (whom some of you met at UKInvestor Show) and I are off to Greece for a week or two – as a liberated woman employed by the State it is only fair that she pays. Naturally I shall write for a few hours a day but mostly this is swimming, walking & winding down. It’s time to think.

You have to learn your lessons and I know that I can have a tendency to take on too much and to just put in too many hours.  In the end that destroys you physically and emotionally. That is a lesson learned. You cannot keep too many plates spinning forever. And so what is my thinking agenda? At a personal level? I shall keep that to myself.

At a work level it is working out how to do less. The UKInvestor Show went very well and I would hope to announce a venue and date for 2014 within the next week or so. But I have taken on a bird to drive that forward so that (especially with a 12 month run in not 4 months) it is less draining for me. 

Real Man Pizza is now in the hands of the lovely Dominique and so I can now be very much a chef of last resort. We are hiring two cracking new waitresses who start next week and so I can just sit back, create the odd new recipe (last night it was the St George’s Day Pizza for next Tuesday) and enjoy the odd day in the kitchen when I fancy it.

And so to writing. A few gigs take no time at all and can be fun and make a few bob and so I am happy to carry on spending an hour a day on Spreadbet Magazine, 24n.biz and www.onefreesharetip.com – but what of the rest of my time? Historically my answer would have been “there are still another 23 hours to allocate” but that is not what I really want to do. There are a number of non work things that I want to do and so it is down to writing what I really enjoy. And that means:

I like working with Steve Moore and Lucian Miers on my Nifty Fifty premium product. Lucian and I recorded our first video the other day and it will go live in the next 96 hours. It was like the old days of EvilCast but on video and funnier. Meanwhile Steve and I had a long chat about a company the other day and so he is right now putting the finishing touches to our latest hot share tip which will go out early this afternoon. And so that is project one.

Project two is www.shareprophets.com – I am finding it very exciting. And frankly it is where I shall make the money need to pay the bills.  Again it is good to be working with a great bunch of folks who do not need managing and who deliver a quality product. I can write what I want and so my next piece is a chance to have a pop at a board of a BB fave who seem to me to have behaved appallingly. So it is fun and it will pay the bills.  And more and more writers contact me every day wanting to write for it. That is the really exciting thing about www.shareprophets.com – quality writers are flocking to the standard.

Of course it is free so if you have not registered yet please do so at www.shareprophets.com

And finally there is this blog. I have not written that much this week as I am just drained. But this is where I can really let rip. This blog was my sanity check last summer and although it makes sod all for me it is fun. And so as long as shareprophets pays the bills this is one of my fun distractions.

That leaves enough time for one other project at a time. The odd e-book, the odd Sefton type campaign. But also other non-work things.

Anyhow, enough from me. I fly Sunday. Before that the Tomograph will return as will the caption contest and there is a hot tip to polish off for the Nifty Fifty and a zillion other things to complete.

Thank you for reading

Tom

UK Investor Show – I hope that you had fun: a few thoughts

2197 days ago

I am still completely wiped out. It is incredibly draining doing presentation after presentation and half way through the post event celebrations I fell asleep (ok I had enjoyed a few drinks as well) but I still feel utterly drained. And so once I have ruined a few other weekends by breaking news of a planning oil company merger involving a well-known name I think I am off to sleep again.


Thanks for the many emails from folks who said that they enjoyed the show. On balance so did I. I thought that the talks were more interesting than for many a year. They have been put on video and so will start to go up from Tuesday in a variety of places. But suffice to say you should register now at www.shareprophets.com to catch many of them.

The location was not ideal. Not least that in order to feed my addiction I had to scrounge a spare packet of Marlboro Light from David Lenigas who had thoughtfully come well supplied. But ADVFN and I know enough now and the show was a success and so we are now planning for UKInvestor 2014. Watch this space – we will announce the date soon.

Highlights for me?

The young man who now writes tips appearing disguised in dark glasses to gain entry (not having booked a ticket). When spotted by Steve Moore, he claimed that he was at Excel to go to the International Cake show down the hall and made a swift exit.  

Nick Leslau and Nigel Wray – optimistic about the UK economy and as a double act far more powerful than as individuals. A lot of wisdom was shared by the pair.

Losing the debate with Richard Poulden once again. I am now 3-2 down but I really will try to do slides next year and stage a comeback.

Mark Slater. The obligatory dirty joke but the quality of his analysis of the markets and of individual stocks (three of which have been tipped by myself and Steve) was incredible.

Nigel Farage – unscripted, lucid, funny and on most issues bang on the money. I had a good chat with him and Chris Booker after the event and he is a very funny and pleasant chap. C Booker’s Thatcher tribute was bang on the money and nailed a number of leftie canards.

Above all I really enjoyed meeting so many of you who attended (particularly, I should say, David from Oxford). Thanks for all the kind words and I hope that you enjoyed the day. On stage I had more fun than I have had for years. I can say what I like these days and I feel like a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I actually enjoyed the day in a way that I have not enjoyed MI days for a long time. With the speakers, stand holders and the audience I felt far more at home than I can remember being for years.

The home team from RMPC & ADVFN staging our first show should be thanked, notably John W, Clem, Fiona and especially Mike Hodges and from our side Darren, Nigel, Sarah, Steve, Robert Sutherland Smith and Martha. It was their first run at this, the second time is always easier.

So thank you to all who attended. ADVFN and RMPC starts work on Monday on UK Investor 2014 which will be bigger and different. I hope to see even more of you there then.

 

Tom

 

PS I should mention one other highlight. The after show pool games. I defeated Andrew Bell of Red Rock. Zak Mir fluked a victory against me. And then it was the final: The UKIP volunteers against myself & Zak. They had been trying to persuade Zak to sign up to UKIP although he is obviously a bit too right wing for them. And so with the prize being that if Zak and I won they would allow him to become the party’s immigration spokesman (Zak’s views are unprintably stern on this matter, making Evil seem like a total Guardian reader) we played.  The bad news for UKIP is that Zak and I won.

Project x is live! The launch of shareprophets.com

2201 days ago

It is time for the workers to take control. Well at least in the world of financial writing. We have had enough of writing about stocks that do not interest for folks who mess us around and do not treat us with respect. For the avoidance of doubt I am not referring to ADVFN who are top bananas. But the workers co-operative has today launched www.shareprophets.com – our own project x.

Comrades Zak Mir, Steve Moore, Lucian Miers, Aubrey Brocklebank, Adnan Siddique, Sam Bottell, Dru Edmonstone, Brokerman Dan, Doc Holiday, myself and others to be revealed will all be writing there. There is data on the stocks you follow, alerts on when comment appears on stocks that interest you, and a lot more to come. And it is totally free, just go register at www.shareprophets.com and answer the confirmatory email sent to the address you give and you are in.

The writers will write about what THEY want. There is no Big Brother dictating what they should cover or say. Free speech, free comment, no holds barred. Game on.

I look forward to your feedback on the site, we will tweak it as we go alive but it is now live and almost 100% bug free.

Weekend Video Postcard Number 20

2267 days ago

As per request the weekend video postcard is back. I found my camera, my tripod and I hope that this all works well enough – damn seem to have goofed on lighting again. I am out of practice. A simple few thoughts to (re) start with & no crowing about the rugby in case Olivia watches.

On the Agenda

1. Bull versus Bear the markets debate short term
2. Longer term – what inflation must mean, a more bearish tone.
3. The dynamics of new media
4. Steve Moore, ex senior writer at t1ps.com joins me working on the Nifty Fifty – the old t1ps team is now 100% reunited on our new website
5. Leslau vs Wray with me in the middle. More on UKInvestor Show where fewer than 500 seats now remain.

You can join myself & Steve at the Nifty Fifty in time for next week’s share tip HERE.

You can grab one of those last 500 tickets for UKINvestor Show on 13th April HERE.”:http://www.UKinvestorshow.com

New Guest Contributor to TomWinnifrith.com – Steve Moore

2324 days ago

Steve Moore joined t1ps.com, the website I founded in my bedroom in 2000 and left in September, straight out of university five or six years ago. We spoke most every day for those years. From January 2011 we worked together as the senior writer on t1ps. We were the entire t1ps team. He is a very talented analyst. He comes from the part of the world where folks marry their cousins but he smarter than your average Norfolk boy. And in October he left t1ps.

He left because an article appeared in his name which was extremely unpleasant and wildly inaccurate and which he was unaware of being on holiday at the time. Steve is a man of honour. He is now ploughing his career as a freelance writer and because he is a) clever and b) a man of integrity and c) a nice guy and d) slightly to the right of Genghis Khan, I am delighted to say that I will be running the odd piece by him as a guest contributor on this site as of next week. It makes this site more interesting and it helps out a man of honour who deserves my support and loyalty.

Steve will also be chipping in share tips on the new Onefreesharetip.com website which you can register for here.

Welcome aboard Steve.
