Ah Value investing - so your keeping in line with inflation then!
I'll stick with trying to be a contrarian and see if it pays off in the next 10 years.
I do not invest at £5 a share and I don't tend to buy the really low end ones - pick the bargains at the sweet spots then hold hold hold. Thankfully this was not the case with my building society shares and I sold a year before they crashed, free shares to capital, win win.
I did sell ARM too early (grrr to Motley Fool), otherwise I would have increased my invetsment five fold.
