February has picked up where January left off with markets in fine fettle. Even our self-confessed optimist and private investor diarist John Rosier didn't expect such a strong start to 2019. This month he explains the thinking behind his recent purchase of three quality buys. On the subject of quality, this week's podcast discussion with Phil Oakley looks at his new Quality Portfolio, which we'll be publishing over on Alpha on Monday. And his weekly column looks under the bonnet of a stock whose quality few can agree on: Ocado.
Meanwhile, reader debate raged online over prospects for the housebuilders, the subject of this week's Property Matters column from Jonas Crosland.
