UK Equities

Fat Prophets have endeavoured to present our past performance of all our stock investing research in a manner that is clear, concise and transparent.

Just as you would perform thorough analysis on your stock market results, every stock market forecast Fat Prophets has ever made is included below. We want to be as comprehensive about our results as any stock exchange history.

The methodology behind the return calculations has been formulated by one of the world’s top four accountancy firms.

All recommendations (open and closed) are included when calculating performance. The Fat Prophets hypothetical portfolio is marked to market on the last trading day of the relevant period. For a detailed explanation, read the Performance Methodology page.

The integrity of the data used in calculating the hypothetical portfolio returns of the Fat Prophets stock market predictions has been independently verified by an accounting firm. Returns to 31 December 2020 have been independently verified. Periods subsequent to this are subject to change until they have been independently verified.

Note: Past performance is no guide to the future and returns can be negative.

Important Risk Warnings

  • The value of shares, and the income derived from them, can fall as well as rise.
  • There is an added risk of losing money when you buy shares in certain smaller companies including “penny shares”.
  • There can be a large difference between the buying price and the selling price of some shares, otherwise known as the “spread”. Should the shares need to be sold immediately, you may get back much less than you paid for them. The price may change quickly, it may go down as well as up and you may not get back the full amount invested. It may be difficult to sell or realise the investment.
  • Money that cannot afford to be lost should not be used to speculate, nor should dividend income be relied upon for non-discretionary living expenses.
  • Some securities may be traded in currencies other than sterling, and may also pay dividends in other currencies. Changes in exchange rates may have an adverse effect on the value of these investments in sterling terms.
  • All reasonable care has been taken to ensure that all statements of fact and opinion are fair and accurate in all material aspects.
  • Appropriate professional advice should always be sought from a stockbroker or financial advisor if any points are unclear.
  • This views expressed are of a general nature only, and the investments mentioned may not necessarily be suitable for any individual.
