Good evening and welcome to this weeks update of my toils to make a little bit of cash!
I've spent a bit of time here and there this past week making a few tweaks and changes to the site and will look to improve it as time passes and I learn more. I did manage to create myself a bit of a website logo at the top of the page, I know you were all marvelling at it as soon as you got here!
It's been a relatively quiet week here at Walker towers, with the dark nights now firmly set in it's generally a similar pattern of heading to the gym after work, having something to eat and then slobbing in front of the TV. This week saw the final episode of SAS: Who Dares Wins on Channel 4. Back for it's 2nd series, a group of general everyday people, are put through a series of very challenging tasks made to imitate an SAS training camp. We seriously enjoyed it and Moses was a deserved winner in the end though my hat goes off to anyone who entered! As much as I would like to think I could do it, I severely doubt I actually would go through it!
Elsewhere we bobbed into our local small town centre on Saturday for a spot of lunch at one of the quaint little cafes in the square before having a wander around the Makers Market dodging the rain! After which I dropped Mrs Walker off at home before dragging myself over to Vale Park. Yes I have another confession to make, not only am I crap trader, I am also a Port Vale fan for my sins! We were crap for a good hour of the game but somehow turned around a 0-1 to end up winning 2-1! So in the end, a good Saturday overall!
Just the single trade this week which was the purchase of Somero (SOM). This first came to my attention much earlier in the year when it was trading at around 150p, since then it has risen and is now sitting at just over 200p. Now this may seem like it has risen quite a bit already (which it has!), however it once again came to my attention last week when it broke out of it's short term range and has now started pushing it's all time highs. Looking at the figures it still looks cheap and will be looking to hold this for some time. They are an American company who specialise in concrete levelling, and deliver increasing revenue and profits year on year.
I have updated my Trades page HERE.
Until next time,
