Review of three of last week's top traded stocks

Graham Spooner, investment research analyst, reviews three of our customers' buys from last week:


National Grid - Low risk

The share price hit a year to date high, but there was no new news. Investors may have noted the recent consolidation as a result of the special dividend. We have long been fans of the group for income seekers, 4.2% yield and continue with a lower risk buy recommendation
We currently view this stock as a BUY.

Petrofac - Medium risk

Another terrible week for the share price, with the company giving an update on the SFO investigation into bribery and corruption and news that the company had suspended its chief operating officer amid a corruption probe, which has led him to resign from the board. We currently do not have a recommendation on the shares, but the risk has obviously risen.
Currently no recommendation on this stock.

Echo Energy - High risk

Continues to be an actively traded share. Last week there was news of a completion of a debt facility. This follows on from the previous weeks news of a £10 million institutional placing. We currently do not have a recommendation on this South American focused upstream oil and gas group
Currently no recommendation on this stock.

Ratio of buys to sells – 51:49

Top customer ‘buys’ and ‘sells’ represent the total number of deals completed at The Share Centre, NOT the total value or number of shares traded. Top trades should not be taken as a recommendation to buy or sell and it is not intended as advice. Top trades is only an indication of the buying and selling movements from some of The Share Centre’s customers.
