kenmitch: I've only just discovered this thread and otherwise would have posted sooner. I've invested in warrants and sub shares for years and ran a successful warrant portfolio on mikewalters.com subscription website. We had to close it earlier this year because there are so few warrants and subs left. The portfolio ended up doubling but was once far higher. A drag on performance was a 50000 PCFS holding bought far too soon, but which would now be doing very well. Unlike you topvest I only hold the sub shares (which being subscription shares can go in to ISAs btw). For those with a very low risk tolerance then yes, a mix of mostly share and small sub share stake makes sense. Otherwise just buy the sub share. e.g right now with the share at 120p and sub about 9p to buy a £1000 sub share stake will be worth around £1900 if the share can rise 10% from here. That would give a £900 profit and maximum possible loss of £1000. OR invest £9000 in the share to get the same profit. And if the share falls 10% the paper loss is not much less than for the sub share. PCFS were highlighted on Mike Walters site as well worth buying at just 3.7p last month, and then again at 5p when the share was 115p only a few days ago. Then with share at 115p a 15% share price gain to 132p and PCFS should more than triple thanks to the exceptionally high gearing then. So invest £1000 in PCFS then at 5p and get a £2300 profit and maximum possible loss of £1000 for 15% share price gain. OR invest £15000 in the share to get the same £2300 profit and if the share falls 15% the paper loss will be £2250 and £1500 more than the maximum possible loss on the sub share. BUT the big minus for the sub is that July deadline date. i..e a real loss if PCFT is 115p or lower at expiry whereas the share can be held until the price recovers. edwardt mentioned the risk of the share price being manipulated so that the sub share expired worthless. That is very unlikely to happen as who benefits from the sub expiring worthless? None of us! The Trust will lose out on £millions of new cash to invest from the all the subs being exercised. Institutions lose out on £milliions too as they often hold very large sub share stakes. Finally don't forget a trustee is appointed to exercise any sub shares if we decide not to sell them before expiry date and just let them lapse. Investors then get the proceeds less the trustee costs. Beware though if thinking of doing this as often the trustee does not get a good price for the share as it means selling a very large share stake that might have to be bought at a significant discount to the quoted share buy price. So best really if not intending to exercise the sub shares to sell them well ahead of the final expiry date.
