This trust has a great manager and long term record. Will take the opportunity to add at a suitable point and double up.

This has become very disappointing as a generalist IT this summer. With a big diversified portfolio it should at least behave like a closet index tracker and preferably outperform the general market. I would have done better with a simple FTSE tracker, and at lower cost, this year, having bought this for a bit of stability in my otherwise whacky pension fund. I'm out, in favour of Scottish Mortgage.

I like Temple Bar too but don't (yet) hold. I do hold Lowland and another one well worth a look, Law Debenture LWDB. If you don't know it, it is an IT plus a long-established pension etc trustee business; sell at a premium, perhaps for good reason. Those are my top three general ITs. Yields around 3% if I remember rightly. rrr

Yes, agreed. I also like (and hold) Temple Bar and Finsbury Growth & Income.

Being a contrarian myself, I moved INTO Edinburgh after Neil's announcement about leaving IP, as it moved to a discount and there's no certainty that he will leave Edinburgh. However, i also agree that LWI is an excellent alternative an i'm in there too.

Well, I'm with you there and, having been disappointed to read of Neil Woodford's upcoming move from Edinburgh Trust, I'm thinking of selling that (hitherto) core holding and splitting the proceeds between Lowland, Diverse Income & Temple Bar. Just waiting for a break-even price on Edinburgh.

What a long term performer this is. A great core holding in any long term investment portfolio IMO.

Masurenguy Excellent! Hope it eventually gets back to £11+ I add shares in the 'Sharesave' scheme rather than get cash divis - so am getting a few more shares each time because of the weak price. z

Looks like it could have bottomed out at around 395p in early December. It has now gradually moved up by 18% over the past 5 weeks.

Lowland hunts for unloved gems By James Kenny Published: July 25 2008 03:00 | Last updated: July 25 2008 03:00 Negative investor sentiment towards medium and smaller-sized companies is creating opportunities for Henderson Global Investors' £247m Lowland Investment Company. The unit trust focuses on income and growth and, according to manager James Henderson, tougher times for the UK economy, are resulting in low valuations for many quality UK small and mid-size companies - a situation that he hopes to exploit. Mr Henderson said: "At the moment we are buying a number of undervalued companies such as steel highway safety manufacturer Hill & Smith. My view is the company will continue to grow and we are in a position to take advantage of this. Other companies we have recently bought include Senior, an engineering company mainly involved with aerospace that is getting strong demand from the middle and far east." As well as smaller companies Mr Henderson said he was also increasing his exposure to banks because in his view, share price falls have overly discounted their present problems. He saw margins for UK banks improving as they increase charges to borrowers. Bad debts will rise, but from low levels, and the banks are prepared for a more difficult climate. In this respect Mr Henderson has bought banks such as HBOS, Barclays and Lloyds, increasing his exposure to between 14-15 per cent overall, up from 7 per cent a year ago. In spite of the general malaise in the financial sector, insurers - which have been tarred with the same brush as the banks - still represent a good buying opportunity, he added. He said: "We have been buying general insurers. They have been tarred with worries along with other financials but I do not think this should be the case as they do not have the same subprime exposures and they will be more resilient in this downturn then usual. This time there is less that can go wrong and this isn't reflected in the share price." Other undervalued areas Mr Henderson has been adding to include housebuilders and insurers. He has bought housebuilders Bovis, Bellway and Redrow as they are trading on what he sees as attractive discounts and are likely to survive the downturn over the long term. The manager said he has been reducing his exposure to utilities as their yields were not high enough compared with the yields available elsewhere in the market. He has also been lowering his holding in Royal Dutch Shell, the fund's largest holding at 5.2 per cent. Again Mr Henderson said he thought the yield on a relative basis was too low. For the foreseeable future Mr Henderson said he would continue buying smaller and mid-sized companies as he saw the sector continuing to offer quite a few opportunities. "As an overall view, there's good value emerging, when the yield on the gilt falls below the yield on equities you're usually right to be buying it. I think that is where we are heading at the moment: there is growth coming through so the yields are high enough to be discounting quite a bit. I'm expecting dividend growth and that puts us in good value territory." http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/7fc7e188-59e3-11dd-90f8-000077b07658.html

Hi Jon - just put this on my watchlist and started the thread so that I could monitor it.

Hi, M. Just saw your thread here. My wife has held these since 1991 (~150p) with divis reinvested. They seem to be trading at a discount (NAV ~780p) for the first time in many years. I seem to remember a premium of around 10% on occasion. If the general tone of your header is right, this should be one to watch for the turn.

Earnings in H1 were 14.7p per share. This compared with 10.1p a year earlier. The increase was as a result of dividend growth from the underlying portfolio holdings, the purchase of high yielding equities and a VAT refund which has added 3.1p to the overall revenue return. The interim dividend was 10.0p, an increase of 11.1% over the same period last year and it is anticipated that the final dividend will also be increased.
