Isn't the share price now 14.00 and the NAV 15 something? Aren't Jeffries figures all wrong or is ADVFN giving the wrong prices?

From Citywire: Shares in HgCapital have surged after the private equity investment trust bucked the gloom that has surrounded the sector by posting returns well ahead of expectations. HgCapital (HGT + You will receive email alerts for items in your favourites whenever we write about them Add to favourites ) jumped 7.9% to £10.79 after the trust revealed a 14.1% jump in net asset value over 2015, to £14.20, compared to £12.78 at the end of last year. The NAV rose a further 2.5% to £14.55 by the end of last month, largely due to foreign currency movements, taking it around £1 higher than estimates from analysts at Jefferies. Like most private equity investment trusts, shares in HgCapital have traded at a heavy discountsto NAV. Since the financial crisis, double-digit discounts have become the norm, and shares in trusts across the sector have come under renewed pressure in the market turmoil since the turn of the year. Matthew Hose, analyst at Jefferies, said the sell-off in private equity appeared 'indiscriminate', while Charles Cade, analyst at Numis, the trust's house broker, argued HgCapital's discount appeared 'excessive'. Despite the jump in the shares, the discount to the updated NAV has actually widened, to 25.8%, compared to the 21.6% discount the shares were yesterday trading at relative to the prior NAV, of £12.75, updated in November last year. 'We believe that this discount is excessive given the quality of HGT's portfolio and the strength of its long-term track record,' said Cade. more on hxxp://citywire.co.uk/money/hgcapital-shines-as-trust-bucks-private-equity-gloom/a887672?re=39024&ea=99333&utm_source=BulkEmail_Money_Weekly&utm_medium=BulkEmail_Money_Weekly&utm_campaign=BulkEmail_Money_Weekly

Even after the fall back to 1075pXD these are still overvalued on an 11% NAV discount. A discount at that level is OK for a liquidating PE trust such as MTH (IMO a good buy @ 147p - see MTH thread for detail); but conventional peers can be bought at far better discounts and even with better portfolio performance records. Two other PE trusts well worth considering: # JP Morgan Private Equity – JPEL. This is now my largest holding thanks to continuing strength and a couple of top-ups lower down. In spite of its rise JPEL @ 93c offers a very attractive 23.8% NAV discount – much higher than the average of 18% for its peers. NB: Yes, JPEL is LSE listed but quoted in US$; so the currency has also added to past performance; and may continue to do so… # BP Marsh – BPM. This is another small trust; and a bit of a specialist being solely in the Insurance broker sector – a Market sector doing very well and going through an active period of consolidation. The major attraction here is the excessive NAV discount of 30%. That should close to something akin to the 18% sector average. That alone would raise the price 16% from the current offer price of 144p to 168p. BPM's NAV is an historic 205p. The Finals in June should uprate that figure; and a rumoured portfolio sale may well confirm an increase before then.

Why the fall? Firstly, IMO they had become rather over-valued - hitting 1150 for a miserly 8.5% NAV discount versus an average of 18% for their peers. Secondly, no real fall yesterday. They had drifted on Wednesday from 1135 to 1120; then fell 37p to close at 1083p after going Ex the 32p dividend.

HGT is currently trading at £10.15p a two month low, this after announcing the Recommended Cash Offer for Allocate Software plc. http://www.londonstockexchange.com/exchange/news/market-news/market-news-detail/12114951.html This move by HGT is rather unexpected at the time when other Private equity investors are making divestments. HGT are clearly attracted to the Healthcare sector where the pursuit of efficiencies, could continue to drive revenues for Allocate for many years.

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE HgCapital Trust plc, which was established in 1989, is an investment trust listed on the London Stock Exchange (ticker: HGT.L). The Trust’s objective is to provide shareholders with long-term capital appreciation in excess of the FTSE All-Share Total Return Index by investing in unquoted companies. The Trust provides investors with exposure to a diversified portfolio of private equity investments primarily in the UK and Continental Europe. HGT has a historical share price performance of 7.2% per annum. 16.0% p.a. 10-year compound annual growth rate of the share price vs. 8.8% p.a. from the FTSE All-Share Index, both calculated on a total return basis to 31 December 2013. hxxp://hgcapitaltrust.com/investor-information/share-price-performance The HGT share price has under-performed over the past over the 3 years. Therefore with the Private Equity market currently having a renaissance HGT could improve their recent below par share price performance. A Continuation vote in 2015 should also encourage the HGT board to seek realisations on certain long standing investments.
