Senor_Sensible Tinto far better imo. Spanish wine amongst the best. The French have become too lazy and complacent in their winewmaking in the last 30 years.loverat

I find French wine is generally awful. They make the best wine in the world (which I invest in) but the everyday stuff is pretty bad. I see ALPH has replaced IERE as massive killer spread. 0.05p the official bid.loverat

I was in the area last week so had a look at a few of the french properties myself. ALU site looks impressive...... More importantly, had dinner nearby and a 1l bottle of water cost 9 Euros, I normally buy 24 cans of Estrella for less than that or 5 decent bottles of Wine. Looks like the French economy was doing OK to me in this region. Glad to be back on the Med where the weather AND the cost of living is much better.senor_sensible

I'm afraid ALPH is in the final arc of a death spiral. Doomed to oblivion. The nails of the the coffin have been hammered in and the earth to be cast upon it.muzerewa

Could say it's fallen of a cliff - but actually it's only fallen off a pebble. There's no cliff left :-) The directors will keep drawing their salaries til the bank closes them downhosede

Hi Steve, Thanks for spending some of you evening to advise me on my investments, sorry I could not respond sooner but I was having some chilled Tinto Verano whilst watching the sunset over the med. I am 100% happy with my exposure to all my investments including my very risky ones which are of a rocket or bust nature and have had no problems sleeping. My portfolio includes funds, fund of funds, blue chip, small cap and Aim. Some of my riskier shares are like Alph where the share price is a fraction of the cash in bank or adjusted NAV (note is all the property sold at market price and debt was settled this would give 10p per share return). If alph 10 bagged it would make a small positive difference to my portfolio, if it went bust it would make a small negative difference to my portfolio And some where the share price is above the adjusted NAV such as SRE, one of my minor concerns at SRE is the fact the NAV seems to be inflated by upward revaluations of property which do not follow general market trends in the region which tend to precede a placing, diluting the value of my shares (Smaller part of bigger company but if there are doubt about valuations it could end up with more investors looking for the exit door) Also concerned at the prices paid for some properties which appear to above market value (hence the lack of competition when buying property)and also the fact that insiders are selling shares on a regular basis, I have a few other things niggling me but don't want to go into detail here. I am more concerned about my holding in SRE than I am about my holding in Alph. Out of the two I think Alph is the most likely to be a 10 bagger in the next couple of years :-) and I can take the profit from SRE much easier. No point comparing apples with oranges, one is closer to the top and the other is closer to the bottom.... :-) I have quite a lot of research on SRE, will post over there some time, but in the meantime I suggest u look at the background to the properties and what historic valuations were and why there is a need to reduce the LTV while borrowing costs are at all time lows :-)senor_sensible

Senor, You must be the eternal optimist, as I know that you have been going on about ALPH for 18 months/2 years. Last year the NAV dropped to 12p from 24p I think,and that was enough for me, as the debt was becoming troublesome. No Rights Issue could be persued because of the crippling Barclays interest rate - which is still a killer. At the next report the NAV dropped to 6p,but the huge debts remain. Why throw good money after bad,especially as this is still classified as an investment trust,albeit one concerning property Nearly all property companies have reported good progress,QED,CAL,TR Property,CLI etc;this is not ramping,advising of facts and logic. SRE was also a risk with very high gearing,(it still has but the LTV is improving). The board have been very proactive,and increased institutional holdings. Private investors were excluded from a recent funding but the boards intentions were genuine in trying to create shareholder value.This is a feature that IERE/IERP and ALPH lack.Look at the share graph for the both shares, and the your 200% in SRE should improve,but your average in ALPH may end up at 0% in a few months time .... I guess it all comes down to having a balanced view of things,but I dont usually average down more than once. Anyone who continually averaged down on ALPH will be having sleepless nights,so I hope you're not in this group Senor. I thought the idea of bulletin boards was to warn,encourage and advise;like the good monarch, and this is the reason for this note - I hope you understand my reasoning my friend All the best, Steveblackpoolsteve

This board of directors are about the worst I have seen running a property company ,of course they managed to give Alpha another 7 year contract to run this company into the ground that is where the rest of the assets will go to buy them out.wskill

If peeps read the accounts properly they might see that the company actually made an operating profit for 6 Months to June 1025 of £2.76Mil. Operating profit £2.76Mil Cash in Bank £9.9Mil Market Cap £0.88Mil ICR over the six months to 30 June 2015 was 136%senor_sensible

I am already invested in SRE, over 200% up so my dividend yield is looking quite good there, I am not increasing there and was thinking of topslicing there to increase here. If I get time I might post the reasoning and research behind my current opinion on the SRE board later. I try to avoid cross board chatter because it looks I am ramping for my stocks elsewhere :-)senor_sensible

Bottom line is that NAV has dropped off a cliff over the last 5 years - the trend is you're friend,or enemy,if you choose to ignore it. I feel your £1k would be better invested in SRE, as its NAV is increasing and its paying a dividend,with a potential full listing/or takeover ... ... just saying Senor,good luck ,as sold out last year when NAV halved then ... Regards,Steveblackpoolsteve

Thought I'd add £1k @ 0.74p.senor_sensible

There is no loan to value ("LTV") covenant test on any of the Trust's properties. Interest cover ratio ("ICR") covenant on the senior borrowings is set at 115% - the Trust's weighted average ICR over the six months to 30 June 2015 was 136%. Anything below 100% means the company are having problems servicing debt, BARX set their limit at 115% and the actual ICR is 135%. Not going into administration, It would have to be less than 100% for force administration. Above 150% and the company would be considered investment grade. Therefore this is closer to investment grade than basket case..... just saying like.senor_sensible
