Yeah, I remember reading that when you posted, and I never got round to it. :(
Well done fruits. :thumbs
Has been an interesting ride over the past few months Col. As the European antitrust case neared it's conclusion last year, the market started to get very twitchy which I really couldn't understand, but then I've always held the belief most of these traders aren't too bright. All I was reading about was the fine, the size of the fine etc etc. When the shares slid back to around $1,000 a share I was just too tempted not to get involved.

Putting the fine in perspective, the general consensus was that it would be a max $2 billion, so you see why I couldn't understand the panic. Google has around $100 billion in cash and the fine was equivalent of 1.3% of the 2018 turnover. Furthermore, Google is now such a truly global company, over 50% of annual revenues come from outside the USA.

But there's no telling the herd sometimes.

So, although a bit twitchy myself, I jumped in and picked up another 25 shares.
Feeling please. I waited until I saw the Google shares top $1,500 (14th Feb) and offloaded 17 of the recent 25 shares I bought. Netted around $25,600 which was the purchase cost of the additional 25, so holding the balance of 8 shares for nil investment cost (except the lost interest on one year if one looks at things this way).

The shares I bought back in March 2013 are really showing a very handsome growth rate ($394 average buy price so 280% increase in 7 years, around 16% compound growth) add in the strength of the Dollar and I really have coined it as that has added a further 3%+ average compound growth, so near 20% total.

If you look back at my post just about a year ago (March 23rd 2019) the shares were trading at $1,225 so they've kept the relentless rise going adding a further 22% in one year.

The recent share buy has turned out even better as I caught the downward trend back in October 2017 getting in at just over $1,000 each and offloading enough to cover my invested moolah at just north of $1,500 just 17 months later!

Looks like I'll hit that $2,000 target well before 2027 which I originally budgeted to achieve.

I remember you mentioning the Google shares, Fruity, at the time. It’s nice to see your investment ‘tip’ come good. I’ve never brought any shares before, and that one would’ve been far too rich for me to get involved with!

I did get another two £25 Premium Bonds win last month though. I’m raking it in!!!

Corona Virus.

Official advice is to use hand sanitiser that contains alchohol to kill the virus. I'm playing it safe and staying drunk until further notice.

I'm not here much and am no techie but this isn't hard to use imo.
Forum has been run by an American company since 2010. Hence you can say arse but not ass. I'm just wondering if Shakey Mo has anything to do with what is looking more and more like its demise. There were some well-deserved critical posts about him after that court ruling. Some of them were mine. I may be a dead fish swimming :(
