Diary of a Private Investor

2017 Stock Picks

Organised by Aston Girl (@reb40 – thank you!), the Twittershpere of UK private investors have selected their stock picks for 2017 and I have agreed to host the list here. Of course, nobody should ever invest solely on a tip or stock pick but it does provide a starting point for further research. Moreover, it is a bit of seasonal fun among a group of friends/associates with a shared interest. Generally speaking, this page of the site will not be of interest to anyone but the participants, although if you are new to Twitter and want to find the best PIs to follow, you could do worse than check out the participants in this competition. Good luck everyone!

suzz looks to have an unassailable lead but personally, I’m hoping Panic Trader has something to say about that, given that IQE is my largest holding.

Thanks
