Three new share articles

It has been a busy week and I realised that I had not uploaded the articles I wrote on the Share Prophets website...so here they are!

I wrote three pieces respectively titled...

"Dunelm - am I bashing or buying frilly curtains?" 

"Lloyds Banking Group - it's been boring...but I still think it's worthy" 

"RBS makes a profit...and the shares go down! Why?

For me the question is just how much governments are going to reform to help pick
up the slack.  

In the meantime I still believe bond yields should go up as one of the key buyers are
starting to fade away…

Still, higher bond yields don’t mean that other areas are not interesting such as
