colonel a: The share price has declined steadily for the past 4 months, as per the market. Not headlong and not for 21 months. The dividends have been supported from reserves, but only modestly. The return is good but the share price will largely follow the general trend. You pays your money ...

contango1: Well the share price has been in headlong decline for 21 months with no reason to suppose that is about to change. The divi was partly paid from reserves for 2012 and 2014 and divis from some shareholdings are under pressure in the current year. Contrary opinions welcome!

kiwi2007: Any comments on this IT ? Basically pays a div of 6.5% at 332p - and they have increased the dividend each year for the last 10 (and possibly more). A bit highly geared (130%) but their major holdings seem quite solid with a goodly portion of earning from overseas.

(share price 333p) http://www.fundtoolkit.com/FundPages/RCM/Documents/FactSheets/FS_Merchants1.pdf From PDF 31/12/2009 The Trust's performance was ahead of the index with defensives like BAE Systems, Reed Elsevier and Unilever performing well and IG Group up 20%. Negatives were fewer but included as sharp pull back in Pendragon and not owning Rio Tinto and Imperial Tobacco which both rallied.Portfolio activity was limited to reducing positions in companies that had performed well and looked less attractive, like BT and National Grid and adding to relative underperformers, like British Land and SSE. Looking into 2010 we remain of the view that we will see a more stable environment than over the last two years but a high debt overhang limits the scope for strong economic growth. Differentiation between companies rather than sectors is likely to be more important in a slow economic environment. Valuation could be a more important driver of stock performance as well as other fundamentals like business quality and competitive advantage. The portfolio has a high exposure to large, well capitalised companies with strong cash flows, low valuations and high dividend yields. We have also added attractively valued higher growth businesses to the portfolio in recent months. I bought some both for my SIPP and personal account earlier and am thinking of adding - unless someone can disued me? Or point me to a better IT with similar qualities (I hold EDIN and DUN also).

washbrook: I have been watching this carefully for 2 years In the last major recession in 1991. On February 1st 1991 the share price was 169p and the dividend was 9p, therefore if the dividend stayed the same and the share price it would take you 18.77 years to get your capital back not counting the interest accrued just a yard stick. The low of today 16.10.08 was 262p and the dividend has grown to 21.6p, therefore on the same yardstick it would take you 12.13 years that is 54.74% cheaper in value than 1991. The net Yield on the stock in 1991 was 5.325% One year high coupon gilts were yielding 11.38% gross Inflation in (RPI=8.95%Jan1991)(RPI =3.84JAN 1992 Today Merchants Investment Trust is on a net yield of 8.244% One year high coupon gilts 7.69% gross and inflation(RPI 5.0 SEPT). The markets are telling us something or is there a gross misalightment ?
