Share Investor Buying One Million Postie Plus Shares

I have stoically held Postie Plus Ltd [PPG.NZX] shares now for 3-4 years.

I own 2540 shares.

PPG shares have paid me a dividend of about 20 bucks over those years and are now worth a total of $709.80c, a drop of around 50% from the total purchase price of $1463.20.

To say then that it is a bad investment is a major understatement. It is the investment equivalent of backing Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen in a movie and expecting them to show up at work every day, and sober no less.

So it is a loser plain and simple and should really have no place in my portfolio one would think?

Well, initially I thought it was such a small part of the overall portfolio I would sell and put it behind me but I hate to lose money but I know that some time in the future when management get their proverbial together and actually make some money somebody is actually going to make me a much better offer than 26c per share.

Well, I am thinking if Jan Cameron can take a big stake in the company then this boy can flash a few shekels around and get a bigger stake in the expectation that the share price will at least double.

With this in mind I am going to splash out $259339.60 to buy 997460 PPG shares to take my stake to 1 million shares. I am going to sell the whole Share Investor Portfolio to make this transaction happen.

The remaining unspent funds I am going to buy Allied Farmers Ltd [ALF.NZX] shares with and maybe a little gold.

I would appreciate any feedback on this.
