|Div 3.5p, xd 19/06, pay 19/07.
NAV 70.6p, up 7.3% over year and divi 5.5p.
A premium to NAV but maybe not outlandish, as quoted parts have been reduceed.|
|17/05/13 ... 100,000 64.0p [strange price]|
|NAV 70.6p on 28/02/13.
Div 3.5p pay 19/07, xd 19/06.|
25/01/13 ... 15,000 66.0p
29/01/13 ...100,000 66.0p
30/01/13 ... 50,000 67.0p
31/01/13 ... 29,000 67.0p
01/02/13 ... 50,000 67.0p|
|The buybacks start again:
01/11/12 ... 30,000 57.0p
12/11/12 ... 50,000 60.0p
13/11/12 ... 40,000 63.0p
14/11/12 ... 30,000 63.5p
15/11/12 ... 33,000 64.5p
A year ago, there was lots of upside on this, but we're starting from a higher base.|
|NAV (unaudited) 72.3p on 31/05. Discount is 16%.|
|Following Transys disposal, NAV now around 72.6p.
Discount now about 16% - not bad for a VCT. Thanks to aggressive buybacks, mostly I think.|
|Managers of venture capital trusts (VCTs) are offering existing investors the chance to swap their current holdings for new shares on which they can claim another 30 per cent income tax relief.
The current outperformance - artificially generated by buybacks - might be a prelude to just this sort of exchange.
Current management, by ditching lots of AIM stocks, seem to be doing a better job of things.
Whether I'd take part, I don't know.|
|NAV 65.1p on 30/11/11.
Buybacks recommenced, and again, share price reacts upward:
16/01/12 ... 25,000 @ 55.0p
19/01/12 ... 25,000 @ 56.5p
20/01/12 ... 21,000 @,57.0p|
|Foresight Infrastructure VCTs for me - sent off the cheque (£5000) last month. There's a 2% bonus for early application and a (?)3% bonus from Hargreaves-Landsdown as commission rebate. Also I'm very keen on infrastructure investment.
|I've gone for the Octopus Investments VCT 3&4 - investing in Solar energy projects. They probably won't benefit from the higher feed-in tariffs of earlier products but will still do well as installation costs for these projects is falling radically. I preferred a safer option in volatile times and it's still possible that the government might lose its appeal against the ruling that the reduction in FIT was illegal, in which case these will do very well.
|Don't like the condition that you have to invest equal amounts in all four VCTs. Also £5,000 is more than I would be willing to invest anyway. (Though it does seem to be the general minimum these days.)|
|Hi, lavagr ... becaus they're offered at NAV, there won't be dilution. The proceeds will be invested in new ventures.
My prospectus came this morning. I doubt I'll act before Christmas, but the narrowing of the discount here in MIG1 makes it worth considering. Trouble is, I don't see any likely big winners in MIG1's existing portfolio.
I've applied for the Foresight Infrastructure VCT offering, so that might be enough.|
|MIG2 (MAVEN INCOME & GROWTH VCT No2) also offering new shares, 59.37p as opposed to a current price of 48p / 50p.
Not interested in buying more but agree there will be takers at these prices with relief available. What implications are there for existing shareholders of these offerings?|
|Explains why they were so keen to buy up their own shares -
The Directors of the Company are pleased to announce the launch of an Offer of new ordinary shares to raise up to £1.25 million ("the Offer"). The new ordinary shares are being offered at 65.71p (this being the most recently published net asset value of the existing ordinary shares, ...
And they'll have some takers, I don't doubt, given the VCT reliefs available.|

|Have held since initial issue in 2000; dividends and tax relief which was 20% then, have meant a modest profit if the 43p in dividends since then is taken into account, despite current languishing share price and wide discount of ~25%
Consideration of current strategy and holdings has tempted me to add this morning, and I'll add again in due course.
AIM and other quoteds have been reduced significantly (that was a poor strategy with poor stock-picking) and the unquoted portfolio seems to be improving in value. Many of the holdings are of mezzanine or loan stock in companies already generating cash ("late stage"), so a decent dividend should be assured.
(First Murray-Johnstone, then Aberdeen, now Maven, who at last seem to have a sound plan.)
The current year's 4.5p in dividends (including capital) might become a new norm.|
