The most traded shares last week

Important information - This information isn’t a guide to how you should invest. You should think about your own aims and attitude to risk before making any investment decisions. Investments fall as well as rise in value, so you could get back less than you put in. If you’re not sure whether an investment is right for you, please speak to a Financial Adviser.

Before you start

This page shows the most popular shares with HL clients over the last week. You can see which shares clients have been buying and selling, based on either the number or total value of deals placed.

But this information isn’t a guide to how you should invest. It’s here for your interest.

You should only consider making an investment if:

  • You’re willing and able to accept a level of investment risk and won’t need the money for at least 5 years. With investing, there’s no guarantee of making money and you could get back less than you invest.
  • You’ve saved a supply of cash that you can access easily for emergencies – a good rule of thumb is to have around 3-6 months of expenditure.
  • You want the chance to grow your money more than you could with cash.

You can also read around the subject. We've covered what we think you need to know, from investing essentials, to understanding how to manage behaviours to make the right decisions.

Investing in individual companies isn't right for everyone. That's because it's higher risk, your investment depends on the fate of that company. If that company fails, you risk losing your whole investment. If you cannot afford to lose your investment, investing in a single company might not be right for you. You should make sure you understand the companies you're investing in and their specific risks. You should also make sure any shares you own are part of a diversified portfolio.
