OUR TOP PICKS for the year con­tinue to out­per­form the wider mar­ket as we en­ter the fi­nal quar­ter of 2017. Our port­fo­lio is up by 10.7% on av­er­age ver­sus 7% gain from the FTSE All-Share.

We have taken profit on two of the best per­form­ers – oil com­pany Ithaca En­ergy (which was taken over ear­lier this year) and soft­ware firm Ideagen (IDEA:AIM).

Among the rest, high end choco­late re­tailer Ho­tel Cho­co­lat (CHOC:AIM) re­cently an­nounced its maiden div­i­dend off the back of bet­ter than ex­pected full year re­sults

(27 Sep).

Sup­port ser­vices firm Serco (SRP), whose share price has strug­gled this year, was re­cently sub­ject to pos­i­tive bro­ker com­ment from Shore Cap­i­tal which noted ‘green shoots’ of re­cov­ery were start­ing to emerge for the busi­ness. (TS)
