    There are a number of factors, such as market cap, shares in issue etc.
    But generally the spread on bid/ask is generally larger with lower priced shares (circa 5% or more). This increases the risk on stopping out at a larger loss.
    Institutions (proper ones!) generally don't buy lower priced stocks I find - so if they aren't buying then I won't, because I need these people to take them off my hands later.

    I will mention Fred Dibnah here - without privilege of rich parents, life is hard for most of us, but was a master of his craft. Fred was working class. The next generation need to look back to this kind of mentality.

    Burglary. Mercedes stolen, and puppy bull dog stolen - but the puppy was returned two days later, dead, hanging by its neck on the front gate. There are some sickos out there.

    People need to face life sentences for these crimes. Armed robbery is no joke! Of course it won't happen. The law has lost control.
    Oh, can we have proper descriptions of attackers too, like we did in the old days or would that be something-ist?

    Last unusual one for a while, I hope.
    - Plant machinery - looks like this business was cleaned out. Do you own a business on an industrial site? You're probably most vulnerable over the weekend. It's a free for all out there.
    ----

    PLEASE KEEP SHARING!
    A massive thank you to everyone who has shared so far and the support we have received! We've had numerous phone calls and messages that are bringing us close to the whereabouts of our machines and the police and forensics have good leads also! Any information, however small, please continue to give us a ring or a message!
    Highway Plant has had plant machinery stolen over the weekend in Cardrew Industrial Estate, Redruth, Cornwall.
    As far as we know, the list of stolen machinery is:
    3 1.5Ton Hitachi excavators (diggers)
    1 3Ton Hitachi excavator
    1 Small Wacker Neuson Telehandler
    Digger buckets
    Steel ramps
    Extension forks
    Diesel and cans
    If anyone has seen this machinery or saw an unusual vehicle in the premises please get hold of us by private message or call 01209 214197! All our machines have our business name on them so can be easily identified as long as they haven't been taken off!
    Please share anywhere over the UK since machines like this are often sold far from the business location!
    Thanks!
    * UPDATE After viewing CCTV from local businesses the time of the crime was around 11.30 PM Sunday night until 1.30AM this morning. I have also attached pictures of what the stolen machinery looks like!

    What he could do to further promote it (if you are reading this), is to do a collaboration (play a segment of song in a video on their channel) with somebody like CGP Grey (lives in London) who has some very popular Brexit explanation videos.

    Good question. I suspect it is spread out more thinly to more online sellers. Some of the big sellers pretend they have a UK business (by putting a Union Jack on the Ebay Thumbnail) but actually ship from Singapore.
    That 30% covers for refunds, broken stock, returns etc. Now if the online retailer has not got that 30%, they basically ignore the buyer if they say they didn't get it or it was broken. They can afford the negative feedback - ebay sellers with like 10K feedback have high throughput, and typically may have 50 negative feedbacks in a month. Ideally they don't want this, but because the margins are thinner, they rely on the many good feedbacks to balance it out.
    That 30% was used for the customer service experience. Without it, you just take a punt on the product turning up, not getting lost around the world, and hope it is what is described.

    It isn't even so much that shops are (were) ripping people off.
    Websites used to advertise in newspapers 'Save 30% compared to the High Street'.
    That 30% margin allowed the shops and sheds to pay staff, rents, rates, and electricity bills for displays and lighting.
    By driving down prices in store to compete with online the money isn't sufficient to cover overheads. 
    Without that 30% they can't pay staff bonuses, can't pay business rates, and can't carry on, investing in stock, or anything else.
    They can't increase prices because customers will shop online, they can only cut costs, eventually they close.
    A situation not helped by online traders selling below cost, relying on turnover bonuses from suppliers, and not fully paying taxes. Even they are exposed to withdrawn lending by their banks.
    Another problem for online, and some department stores, is that for decades they have relied on specialist retailers advising punters what to buy, letting them touch and feel the product, then undercutting them on price. These specialist stores are mostly gone now, so punters don't know what to buy, so they buy the cheapest on offer.
    This is now affecting the brands themselves, nobody is selling up to their product.
    Retail is dead already. Only two retail scenarios remain, ones that will shut soon, and others that will shut real soon.
    Where did that 30% go anyway ?

    201p got a reaction from Harley in Credit deflation and the reflation cycle to come.   
    Thank you for the mentions. 
    Every 1-3 years there is a big trend you should look out for, and using a mechanical system, pyramiding as the trade goes your way without leverage, and looking at round numbers, you "should" be able to get something out of the market. You have to pay the tuition fee to the market first to learn (this is variable for each player).
    This can mean waiting for a long time for a trend to appear - On my long blog type thread, at the start of it we saw the tail end of the growth of the growth stocks - BOO, PURP etc. Then along came the Bitcoin run, and we saw how Litecoin trebled.
    Notable trends - Debtfree direct and the other CVA type stocks on the ToS, Junior miners such as AGQ (during the Jim Rogers Years), Gold (the metal $500--> $1400), The UK Growth Stocks FEVR, BOO, G4M etc.
    My biggest regrets of selling too early - Medusa mining went from 20p to something like £4, Asos went from under 10p to £80 (but I am not into fashion, so I can't dwell on that)
    Failures - TLW (oil), FRES (Silver) No trend happened in oil (as yet), and it's still early days for a bull market in gold and silver, although we are due for a new cycle. Blockchain stocks - they tried to catch the Bitcoin wave, but the train had already departed.
