My new latest share bought is now Deckers Outdoor (most of income comes from UGG boots).

Probably more of a growth stock than I'm used to, share price halved recently due to a profit warning due to soaring material costs, I don't see it harming them long term and I think there's plenty of scope for further growth in sales.

Suppose the downside risk is Uggs become a fashion faux pas but I think theres a good chance they'll stay popular because theyre so comfortable.
If I make a spelling or grammatical error its probably because Im posting on my tablet.

3D Systems Corp a couple of weeks ago NYSE:DDD up around 10% today because it's closest competitor NASDAQ:SSYS merged with a privately held company this morning. SSYS is up over 20%, so although I'm happy with DDD, I'm a bit jealous.

Wanted some exposure to 3D printing because I think (hope) it has a big future.
I wish I could invest in taxes - they're the only thing guaranteed to go up.

Last one was Sainsbury. I bought when the whole sector took a hit after Tesco's results announcement as I didn't have a supermarket in my portfolio. I peferred Sainsbury for PE ratio and yield, and also think they have a better customer proposition. i.e. I prefer shopping there to Tesco

It was between them and Morrisons....
I've got a plan so cunning you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel.

I had a good run on DECK last year - sold at about 22% gain if i remember right. I might have another bite if they have had a kick recently - good company, good management - china is a massive market-to-be for UGGS and they aren't going away anytime soon.

Just topping up on VOD at the moment. Hold VOD, TSCO & GSK.

Keeping a eye on BP., AZN, BLND, SSE, UU., SBRY, BA. and NG. Who knows all pretty decent divi's.

VOD's got a few things going on at the moment so this months bonus will most likey end up in there before the ex-divi in June

The last share I bought was a top up of Dialight (DIA) @ 755p in Feb. They issued a very +ve FY statement recently and the SP is up around 40% to 1075p.

Their main business is industrial LED lighting. Market cap. is now around 330m so will soon be promoted to the FTSE 250 which should give the SP another boost.

Robbie Burns is a fan and also Mark Slater who runs the Slater Growth fund - I think DIA is a top three holding for the fund.

A lot further to go imo.

Sounds like one to investigate. The future is definitely LED; not the fluorescent rubbish we're near enough forced to buy now!

Ng............
Feudal Britain needs land reform. 70% of the land is "owned" by 1 % of the population and at least 50% is unregistered (inherited by landed gentry). Thats why your slave box costs so much..

Excellent company, they charge me 1.20 for what equates to a 20 minute walk into town, Arriva charge 2.20 for the same journey, needless to say that Arriva never get any of my business
