The company names in bold are the shares I currently hold. Please click on the links inside the table to read an archive of posts about certain sold companies.

The holding period reflects the month of the first purchase and month of the final sale. Top-ups and top-slices may have occurred during the period.

The total gain/loss has been calculated by dividing the holding’s value plus any sale proceeds plus any dividends collected by the total amount invested.
