Launched 24 years ago in December 1993, Sharewatch is an independent monthly newsletter that alerts you to outstanding opportunities amongst lesser-known growth stocks. It is available by subscription only.
Each month, learn which small company shares we suggest for your portfolio - and why!
Where do we get the information?
At Sharewatch we live and breathe investment opportunities. Unlike the majority of our competitors who rely at best on published accounts or analyst notes, we prefer to personally visit each and every company we feature.
For the past two decades, the same Sharewatch editor has met the management of over 100 separate companies. That's more than 100 companies each year, every year.
Yet despite seeing so many companies, Sharewatch will only profile the shares of some 30 or so companies throughout the year.
• they operate in existing growth sectors
• they have rising earnings and sales which usually means rising share prices
•studies show small companies consistently outperform large industrials
Our expert team can dissect a company's true potential. We look for companies with share prices that can realistically double, triple or rocket even higher.
What's more, Sharewatch researches companies across every business sector. We believe that no other investment newsletter can match the tremendous range of stocks reviewed by Sharewatch. This means readers need not subscribe to separate newsletters for technology, AIM or other small caps: Sharewatch covers them all.
But we look for more. Much more. Sure you'll see others mention the shares we profile. Eventually. But what we're after is not just the right stocks but also the right time to buy them.
Crucially we look to see if the company has started doing something new. More often than not, this essential ingredient is completely overlooked by City analysts and other publications.
Something new is often the missing piece of the jigsaw, the reason behind the share price surge.....Jim Slater
The Sharewatch "Something New" strategy includes:
- new products or technology
- new acquisitions or disposals
- new events, e.g. new legislation
- new management
For example, at the moment we are profiling a company that facilitates online payments and operational gearing is so great that brokers have continued to raise forecasts repeatedly (the shares have already climbed from 76.25p to 292p in under two years); a company that is run by a talented CEO, which supplies technology to the NHS and which is delivering the efficiency improvements the government is targeting; a company that over the past several decades has specialized in identifying genetic markers in salmon to improve growth, disease resistance and is also about to launch a cat allergy vaccine; a company that owns Kdb+, a super fast “columnar database” capable of accessing billions of computer records at high speed and is becoming the technology of choice for hedge funds who are using complex mathematical algorithms to trade; and a supplier of software, hardware and services to the rail sector, which is benefiting from the biggest investment in infrastructure since Victorian times.
Once a share has been profiled, Sharewatch continues to provide regular updates on its progress. You can currently sign up for some great introductory subscription offers.
