The Alpesh Patel Special Edition of ShareScope is a series of systems that I have used for many years, developing my own stock-picking filters and analytic settings ("radars"), and which has proved consistently successful for me.
I want it to save you hours and hours of searching for trades and make you much more than it costs. It has done that for me!Performance figures Sign me up

I have used this system for years now to target 25% growth per annum. It's important to stress the word TARGET. I set my sights high. Each year, I published a basket of stocks for a 12-month buy and hold. In fact, all I did was list the stocks in my Alpesh Patel Value/Growth filter on the day I gave the tips.
Using this method I have achieved an average return of 18% over the last 5 years. Not 25% but I'll take 18% every year and I'm sure you would too. The FTSE All-Share provided an average 0.8% gain over the same period.
My total return since inception: 1214%
Warren Buffett over same period: 434%
Now, the Alpesh Patel Special Edition does not pick sure-fire winning trades and investment ideas every time. It picks trades and investment ideas that already meet specific criteria that I require as a starting point. These are criteria which I have settled upon over years of investing and shorter-term trading.
I may still find reasons not to like some of the opportunities highlighted by my filters but I will tell you the warning signs that I look for.
In today's market, people want the safety of buy and holding good quality stocks, but the extra performance of mild leverage that CFDs and Spreadbetting offers. But you do not need to go to extremes to achieve this. If you take the APSE performance since inception, and had just 2:1 leverage, then £10,000 turned to £250,000! I wanted a system that allowed the benefits of buy and hold but also great performance and this is how in the modern world of how we all invest now it should be measured. Of course even with no leverage the performance is outstanding.
Note: trading with leverage not only magnifies your potential profits but also your potential losses.
Alpesh Patel Special Edition is an UPGRADE to ShareScope and costs just £199 per year.
The Alpesh Patel Special Edition is a set of stock screens and auto-generated comment devised by Alpesh Patel alone. ShareScope identifies matching stocks based on Alpesh's criteria only. Alpesh Patel is an FCA-authorised investment manager.
