You could have retired on Thomas Cook
Forget about buying holidays with them. They could have given you free holidays for the rest of your life if you had bought when the share price was just 35 pence in December 2012. They are now worth £1.82. That’s over 500% rise in just over one year!!!
If you had just traded these at 350 to 1820 and limited your risk on the downside that’s an increase of 1470 pips, just at £100 per pip this would have given you £147,000! At just £10 per pip (bear in mind the entry price was 350 so a 10% stop loss would have given you a 35 pip margin) so £350 risk assuming you paid more spread up front for a guaranteed stop for safety.
The CEO Harriet Green has done an absolutely amazing job bringing them from the brink of hitting the icebergs and steered them to safety. The question is will the share price keep going up. Will keep you up to speed on this. Still on the watchlist!!
