I suggested yesterday that you might want to keep calm and carry on with your investing while markets are volatile. It also put me in mind of a character from Dad's Army and you certainly need character to stay calm in the current market circumstances. However, I have been trying to practice what I preach and have been looking around for interesting stocks on the back of this.
Having said that one stock I uncovered in my research was not necessarily a victim of the current market turmoil but one that has managed to deliver its own Santa rally, despite the market move, on the back of some positive results recently. However, it does operate in an industry which has a slightly chequered history, while they themselves have also had their share of ups and downs over the years.
So I wouldn't suggest going crazy in it but it does look interesting as an appropriate stock for this time of year and it could be a cracker which is not just for Christmas. However note, this is just a suggestion not a recommendation, especially as it is a small Aim listed company with a volatile history and it has just had a spike up to new highs, but if that has whetted your appetite and my caution has not put you off then click on today's Advent calendar window below to see if you want to play it.
