davebowler: Winterfloods; · Differentiated from peers – Aberdeen Smaller Companies Income is differentiated within the UK Small Cap sector by its fixed income portfolio, which broadly offsets its c.10% gearing and boosts income. The fund also has a relatively focused portfolio of 45 stocks, although it remains diversified with less than 30% invested in the top 10 holdings. Other than its stable-mate, Dunedin Smaller Companies (79%), the fund’s highest portfolio overlap with peers is just 16%. With the impending merger of Aberdeen AM and Standard Life it is worth noting that Aberdeen Smaller Companies Income and Standard Life UK Smaller Companies* are differentiated by their investment approaches, with the latter focusing on growth, and just a 10% overlap between the two portfolios. · Focus on quality businesses has delivered outperformance – The managers, Jonathan Allison and Ian Hewett, aim to invest in companies with strong management teams and balance sheets that are generating high returns on capital. The fund’s NAV has outperformed its benchmark, the FTSE Small Cap ex Investment Companies Index, over the last one, three and five years and has also outperformed the UK Small Cap peer group over the last three and five years. Perhaps more importantly, since Jonathan Allison and Ian Hewett took charge of the fund in March last year, the NAV has outperformed both the benchmark and the UK Small Cap peer group. · Attractive yield – The fund has a historical dividend yield of 2.8%, based on the current share price, and was 1.07x covered by revenue in 2016. The yield, which is boosted by the fund’s allocation to fixed income, is at the higher end of the small cap peer group. Dividend growth has been above 3% in each of the last four financial years and the fund also benefits from a revenue reserve equivalent to 1.4x aggregate dividends in FY2016. · Discount wider than peers – The fund’s discount is currently around 20%, which is at the wider end of the UK Small Cap peer group. It is broadly in line with its 12 month average, but over the period the discount has ranged between 17% and 25%. In June the differential in discount level between the fund and the UK Small Cap peer group reached its highest level in the last five years, and, although it has since narrowed, it still remains significant. Winterflood View Aberdeen Smaller Companies Income has a solid performance record, with outperformance of both its benchmark and peer group over the last five years. However, the focus on quality makes it likely that the fund would lag in rapidly rising markets. In terms of its market capitalisation the fund is at the smaller end of the peer group and so liquidity can be patchy. However, we believe that the 2.8% yield is attractive and the 20% discount offers value, both in absolute terms and also relative to the fund’s small cap peers. Given the relatively small size of the fund, performance is likely to be the key driver of any re-rating rather than share buybacks. It is also possible that there could be some discount tightening in the lead up to the fund’s next continuation vote, which is due in 2020 and is held every five years.

nimbo1: Me too. the only way I have found to outperform the market with some use of capital is to buy investment trusts in the troughs. All I am saying is I can't see it will be allowed to go on indefinitely because it is obvious discount mechanisms help the share price - which is what the board's of these trusts are meant to be doing!

nimbo1: Yep Nav at all time highs and share price tracking lower. Same on BRSC. RIII looking steady because they have a buy back in place and interesting to see HOT's performance after they announced a buyback policy. All these investment trusts are mad not to have some sort of NAV downside protection in place and at some point I suspect all of them will have.
