Simon Thompson has an outstanding record of stock picking. His 2012 annual Bargain Shares Portfolio in Investors Chronicle produced a total return of 31.9 per cent, only slightly behind the return on Fidelity UK Smaller Caps Fund, the best-performing small-cap fund. It was no fluke as the following year Simon’s annual portfolio of small-cap picks performed even better, producing a total return of 36.4 per cent, massively outperforming the 10 per cent return on a FTSE All-share index tracker fund.

In more recent years, his 2016 Bargain Shares Portfolio increased in value by 46 per cent over two years; and his 2017 Bargain Shares Portfolio shot up by 30 per cent in only 12 months.

Simon Thompson reveals the investment techniques he employs and which have produced substantial gains for investors following his share recommendations in Investors Chronicle. In no fewer than 26 comprehensive case studies, Simon provides a step-by-step guide behind the rationale for making these winning investments and outlines key stock picking strategies so that you too can follow the same techniques.

Simon Thompson was awarded the prestigious Small Cap Journalist of the Year Award at The Small Cap Awards in 2014, 2015 and 2016.


Extract from the Introduction to Successful Stock Picking Strategies

“It’s important to consider the bigger picture when investing, and not be left behind by new technological developments. Riding off the coat-tails of companies that are transforming the way we live and work can prove a very profitable investment strategy indeed. For instance, in my 2017 Bargain Shares Portfolio for Investors Chronicle I included shares in a closed-end investment trust, Manchester & London, a company with a distinct bias to the technology sector.

The fact that Manchester & London’s share price rallied 66 per cent in less than 12 months highlights the gains that can be made. That’s why I have dedicated a whole chapter highlighting specific areas I target for technology investments, and produced five detailed case studies to reveal the company specific drivers I am looking for to propel operational outperformance, and re-rate the share price.

Corporate activity has been a continuing theme amongst the small-cap companies I follow too. No fewer than 21 of the small-cap companies I have recommended have exited the London stock market in the past four years, the vast majority of which have rewarded shareholders handsomely. It’s no coincidence these companies were taken over as they exhibited specific characteristics.”
