Fancy an Investment in Chemicals, Brothers? Look Up Croda

Hello Share Smashers. I can claim to be an expert in chemicals. Well, not really, though I hold a GCE in chemistry which shocked my old teacher when he saw the list of successful students. Which leads me to look at Croda (CRDA) - a chemicals company based within aping distance of my birth town, Doncaster.

More Croda at 2106p.

The best laid plans of mice and men will often go astray. That’s another way of saying that investment portfolios need the diversity of about twenty shares to take account of the unexpected; both bearish and bullish. I note, with a heavy heart, the dismal performance of Croda International, a share that I last gazed upon in December 2013, after it had undergone a 15% decline in its share price to 2430p. To be kind to my bruised discernment, the share price did subsequently gain 7% to above 2600p by May 2014 (a decent rate of capital gain in five months), when all seemed to be going to expectations. Since then the share price has collapsed; last seen, the shares were 2106p 20% below last month’s peak and 14% below the last December price.
