I plan on making the move from investing in funds to buying shares directly. This being because it seems impossible to find funds that invest in the UK (not companies "based" here) and also avoid a tech bubble in big data. I've sold everything in one under-performing fund and now have £2k to go about doing this.

As this will be my first proper trade I thought I'd see what you lot reckon ahead of next week:

Objective
I'd like to own a house one day but don't make much money so I'm trying to be smarter with what I save using long-term investments. At the same time, I like my money to be about more than returns so I started out looking at UK firms with significant operations outside of London which provide jobs.

Story
My plan is to split 2k 50:50 between Sainsburys and Clipper Logistics. My underlying theory being that post-Covid-19 will see growth trends away from large metropolitan cities over the next 5-10 years. Clipper Logistics handles deliveries for retail and could capitalise on this quite well if the trend is true but they also have good general ideas on things like the growth of shared warehousing. Sainsbury's has been declining in recent years but still seems like a solid defensive investment with good growth in groceries and banking.

What do you reckon? It's probably in the 'wuss bets' area but seems like a nice start.

I'm not questioning your logic or financial experience, but bear in mind that markets (and the world in general) are highly unpredictable. When you pump your money into the shares of only two companies you're increasing your exposure to this inherent risk. By all means go for it but treat that money like you would if you'd budgeted it for a casino, i.e. a profit would be lovely and that's the aim but it's not the end of the world if you lose everything. Being sanguine is a quality you'll have to acquire if you plan on investing in individual enterprises.

You'd be better putting more effort into increasing your income.

You' know what, fuck it. Trying to do interesting things is already turning into far too much work. I'll just stick with my funds and probably even move to a FTSE DD so I don't have to think and if it all go wrong I'll have more important things to worry about.

The next phase of my plan involved shares in FirstGroup and foray into the Eurozone with Atlantia. This would be followed by looking into the telepresence to try and tack the winds of shifting economic geography. Actual fruition would be getting nearer to the 25 year mark which would better suit risky retirement planning.

Yeah, you're right. It looks weird because my strategy is to minimise the impact of trading costs with 1k moves but then there's probably too much risk to be doing that.

By "much money" I mean that I have a nice career I enjoy doing but it's in Central bastard London so every month I look into what owning property involves (within a reasonable commute) and get crushed. Going up the career ladder doesn't solve the problem because my dad isn't an investment banker.

Probably not even worth seriously thinking about this until a few years down the line. Once I'm settled down with a Mrs I'd only have to move if I've bought a place for myself anyway.
