Welcome to today's edition of The Apprentice Investor. Regular listeners to the show will know that our Apprentices are five members of the Share Radio team who've each been given fifteen thousand pounds of virtual money to build individual share portfolios. They have a minimum of eight stocks, which they've been buying and selling through The Share Centre. So, six months into the year how are those portfolios looking? Are they in Grade A condition or languishing in Minus territory? Apprentices Ruby Johnson and Matt Cox have joined me in the studio and standing by with observations and advice is Share Radio's Senior Analyst Ed Bowsher.
