The fact that the share market is up over 10% since December 2018 provided the first topic that we considered at the meeting. Initially we looked at which sectors had shown the most increase. Then we delved into those sectors, including Information Technology, Communication, Industrials and Health Care, bringing up graphs of the stocks which had shown the most increase over the past twelve months.
The second topic for the afternoon was on Assessing Shares before the end of the Financial Year. Whilst each member of our group has their own aim with being interested in the Share Market, the overall aspiration is to make money during the year. Being the last meeting before the end of the Financial Year we then spoke about balancing our individual capital gains with any capital losses that may have been incurred during the year.
The next meeting of Investment will be on Friday 5th July at 2pm in the U3A room at the Seniors Centre.
