    What shares are you buying now - if any?

    It's been years since I bought shares, but I have opened an ISA and will be filling it with cut-price UK shares. I would buy US shares but can't through Barclays so for now am content with UK.

    I am thinking of picking up some of the big names like BP and Barclays. I also want to choose some smaller businesses for the higher risk/return.

    Yes of course these are volatile and dangerous times but I have cash in the bank and might as well start feeding some of it into shares. You'll never catch the bottom, so let's not bring up any discussion about that. And keep the damned Crypto crap off this thread.

    So -
    What shares are you guys buying, or looking to buy?

    I'm just going to keep paying into my pension - but other than that, right now, I want to be cash rich.

      Why ask strangers on the internet instead of doing your own research?

        I know someone that is putting 25k into shares, says its a good time to buy.

        Ive only bought an extra 500 squids worth.

        No recommendations though, been bitten by that before.

          BP - very oversold, on the verge of bankruptcy - probably will be nationalised. Do you think that's a good place to put your money?!

            I would think FX is where it's at for the minute. Bosnia just declared a state of national emergency. Fill yer boots.

                  I've bought a small amount of shares, mostly good quality names (global) in the healthcare and consumer staples sector, plus AMD

                  I don't think this is bottom of the market, shares will get cheaper and some will go bust for sure.

                  Better to feed in a few % of your cash pile and buy any further dips and pray.

                  PS Buying any oil company is a very "brave" move.

                    Buying health sector is an equally brave move. Spain is nationalising its private healthcare...
