  • Are Lloyds shares a deadly FTSE 100 value trap?

    Image source: Getty Images I’m searching for the FTSE 100’s best value stocks to buy this October. So I’m giving Lloyds Banking Group (LSE:LLOY) shares another close inspection.

  • This FTSE 100 share has crashed in 2022/23, but I’m still happy to hold it!

    Image source: Getty Images At first glance, the past year hasn’t been great for the FTSE 100. The index is up 5% over 12 months, excluding cash dividends.

  • Watchlist alert! 3 FTSE stocks currently trading at 52-week lows

    Image source: Getty Images I’m a firm believer in building watchlists for the stock market. I don’t have the cash to buy all the FTSE stocks I want in one go. Further, some shares I don’t want to buy right away, but only if the stock drops to a certain level. Here are several ideas…
