|A nice rise today on back of RNS saying more shares bought.
p1nkfish, coincidently I bought BGFd back in October , then the in January iShares MSCI Japan Mnthy £ Hdg (IJPH) which is slightly different from yours I think. In my case BGFD has outperformed the ETF. I think the falling Yen contributed a lot to the ETF in 14, hence why I picked a "Hedged" ETF to balance the IT.
RNS Number: 6989G Baillie Gifford Japan Trust PLC 05 March 2015 The Baillie Gifford Japan Trust PLC Owing to demand in the market, the Company announces the allotment of 200,000 new Ordinary Shares of 5p each fully paid on 5 March 2015. Following the allotment there are 69,781,750 Ordinary Shares in issue. These shares were issued for cash on 5 March 2...|
|Bought BGFD and ISHARES V PLC MSCI JAPAN GBP HEDGED some time back.
The tracker/etf has trounced BGFD and lower cost.
Says it all. Why pay theee peoplecto under perform?
Any reason anyone?|
|Same as you Altom, long term holder of both. Each trust has outperformed its benchmark and over the last four years returned much more that I was expecting. The discounts are sitting at only 1% just now, so not worth buying in for that, however I think US (and UK) look toppy so am sitting tight in Japan (and Europe where I have TRG, just bought another slab last week).
BGS (as you would expect being smaller companies) is much more volatile and often has a larger spread.|
|I own this trust & BG Shin Nippon. Both good risers this week. Any comments from someone better informed than I am would be very welcome.|
|Anyone have any current views on this one? I'm thinking of flirting with japan, just hope I've not left it too late....|
|Looks like it is a break out on the charts!|
|Thats a bit better.|
|In for a third of desired total position first thing (below £3 thankfully).|
|From 5% premium to NAV to 10% discount to NAV. Talk about gearing. Now if the Japanese stock market would please be good enough to go back up again...|
|Not yet - away for a few days and watching with interest. Sell in may and all that suggests to me opportunity over the summer to drop into some jap stocks but am watching u.s. interest rates...|
|W7 - did you "join in".|
|Hooray! A chance to join in!|
|I still have phys - not a vast amount but enough to provide some security if the system fails. I have sold my miners on the way down - not soon enough by any means - but will be alive to potential bottoms...as it were. I think there is a way to go yet as everyone piles into general equities - to be sure it's a QE generated bubble but might as well have some of it...|
|Do you still hold your PMs? Been battered but I think they will come back.|
|Might as well pile in then - that normally induces a sharp drop...very p'd off to have taken so long to get out of PMs (for now) and waiting so long to get in here - it would be nice to end the year a few percent up after two dreadful years...|
|Its not going to pull back IMV. Seen how much printing is going on. The western masses are still underweight Japan - only a matter of time before they start buying.|
|Will you people please take some profit so I can get in??!! lol|
