  1. This is quite fun, especially when you reduce all haircuts to 0%... http://graphics.thomsonreuters.com/11/07/BV_STRSTST0711_VF.html unfortunately it doesnt cover lloyds. I bought lloyds at 33p as a swing trade, however im caught in two minds about holding it longer...she looks a tired old nag, but what about in 5 years time???
  2. I bought Lloyds shares at 33p. Silly Billy.
  3. You live next door in Salford dontcha. How will you tell the difference?
  4. Just dropping by... I thought you left this place young man?
  5. I will admit to a novice impulse yesterday. I was watching RBS tank, down 8% at one point. I had a strong urge to buy in when it reached 20p and set an order to sell at 25p. I have noticed that it tends to trade back and forth within a channel before breaking out to a new range. Volatile and risky. My finger was on the trigger, then I realised I was effectively gambling. Did I fully appreciate the reasons behind this price action...what might happen over the weekend? Look at Bank of America...So my head over ruled my heart. I think I made the right choice. I do wonder though, throwing a qui
  6. 88. The summer of love. VIVA ACID HOUSE.
  7. I wonder if theres anyway they could email him to check how he is. Ah well.
  8. Hmmm. I work in the public sector. Ive noticed that low level admin staff etc get paid quite well, but other jobs such as Solicitors, building surveyors, accountants...not so much... The pension benefits are very good. I contribute 6.8% towards mine. How much do you guys contribute?
  9. Just checked. Serpico was last active one year ago. Hope he's still will us.
  10. Probably my favourite ever HPC post. Thanks fofp. And also Serpico...wow, that has brought back some memories, we should bump some of his threads. A truly inspring Gentlemen.
  11. Edward Mellor always set their guide prices 10-20% below reserve to stimulate interest. Been watching their lots for years. Almost bid on one in Levy; which has since been resold for less.
  12. Im in the same position. What ideas did you come up with?
  13. Sorry to hear that. What sector do you work in? As you will see from my join date and previous posts I have been an advocate of lower prices for many years, since 2003 in fact. I do not work with agents and cannot stand them. They are salesmen, if you believe what they say, then you are naive.
  14. Hello! Nice to see an old face! Were you from Wales as i recall? In terms of valuations, the market has stabilised I would say. I work in Manchester. I would say that the cuts to the quango's will start to hurt the City a lot more over the next two years. HCA and NWDA are fooked. This could be a time to see some innovation in terms of financing and ddevlopment, however the private sector will now need to pick up the reigns from the public sector. The resi market corrected, but not enough. I still see a lot of flash cars knocking around, and I wonder where the money is coming from. I also wond
  15. No, but redundancies are still hovering.
  16. how are we feeling about manchesters prop price expectations moving forward? im not seeing much movement, just inflation erosion
  17. you sound like you know what youre talking about howarden? Whats your story? I personally would be wary of buying owt in northern moor. Its a shit hole. I once sold some land round there at the peak of the boom, deal fell apart befores contracts exchanged as the market collapsed
  18. Thought I would bump this and see how we all are doing? Im still in the same job, but thinking of jacking it in to go travel South America. All that hard work for nothing, you may think.
  19. Moved from wales 14 years ago, never moved back. My mum still lives there. Powys is dieing slowly, the life being sucked from it. the smnall shops and markets have ben killed of by your tescos's and sainsburys. The youth leave, investment slows, jobs are culled. each time I go back the town looks quieter. A beautiful and depressing place.
