Contrary to what one might think from the comments passed here, this share has been a rather nice stock to make money from. Yield generally has been in the range 4.5 to 5%, with dividends paid quarterly, and a varying discount to assets on an underlying holding of rather safe blue chips. Judicious timing based on correct judgement of market movements and shifting discount has meant capital as well as income gains, whilst underlying risk has in the past remained low.
This has been the attraction of this kind of share. Whether it will now continue to be so depends to some extent on the new risks introduced by the new investment managers, but one cannot take it for granted that it will automatically be better. Personally I liked it just fine as it was, and made perfectly good returns over time.|
