2017 Performance c+37%, Not bad, but never enough….

Just done my final performance numbers for 2017 – I recon the figure will come out at +c37%.

Kryptonite 1 – selling half, +156% & Other Crypto thoughts

Brief post sold half my Kryptonite 1, for a modest 156% gain.  I say modest as pretty much every crypto related co or asset has outperformed KR1 since I got in.

PV Crystalox Solar – Another liquidation play

Added a 9% portfolio weight to PVCS at 21.68p a share.

This is a solar manufacturer which has just won an arbitration case against a customer who refused to pay up.  This has been quite well covered in the Investors Chronicle and elsewhere so only a short post on this.
