• Five year performance data for all portfolio stocks can be found here.

Your capital is at risk when you invest in shares, never risk more than you can afford to lose. Shares recommended may be small company shares. These can be relatively illiquid and hard to trade making them riskier than other investments. Some shares recommended may be denominated in a currency other than sterling.

The return from these may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. Please seek independent personal advice if necessary. Figures are calculated using the closing mid-prices on the date on which shares are first recommended. All gains are gross, and returns will be affected by dividend payments, dealing costs and taxes. Past performance and forecasts are not reliable indicators of future results. Bid/ offer spreads, commissions, fees and other charges can reduce returns from investments.

Profits from share dealing are a form of income and subject to taxation. Tax treatment depends on individual circumstances and may be subject to change in the future. Editors or contributors may have an interest in shares recommended.
