    Churn and bold investment

    Churn rather than bold investment was
    the hallmark of an otherwise much quieter
    Q1 for energy and natural resources,
    although shale gas looks set to remain a
    major spur to transactions.

    Please explain to me what churn and bold investment could mean in the sentence above. Thanks.

    I'm afraid I can't make any sense of that paragraph.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The verb churn refers to pointless buying and selling of securities. Investment on the other hand indicates a commitment to buy and hold a security for a significant length of time.
