Being a FTSE 100 company is exciting at one level but can be very boring at another, as anybody can see by looking at the Footsie’s inability to get anywhere close to its peak levels well over three years ago, unlike the FTSE 250. Still, at least the FTSE 100 is ahead of the FTSEAIM index compared to the dot-com bubble which ended in early 2000. What a mad world that was, even if it meant the first five full years of my investment management career usefully showed a bunch of busts and booms.
