|Spec, if you ever want a look just go to literature library on Shires site,
click read all literature, that takes you to portfolio holding summary.
Wish I had added some Chesnara myself, hesitated at about 30 pence below today's price,
|Looking at the latest disclosures, they look to have increased CSN
by participating in the open offer.
CNA and TSCO look to be exits, DGE a new addition - if I have read the holding summary correctly.|
|NAV is clicking up nicely too - so it's a 5 per cent+ income at a good discount. What's not to like.|
|Added a few under 2.28, partly paid for by the upcoming divi.|
|SHRS NAV moving nicely atm.
The big reserves figure rarely gets a mention, Shires have approx 15 months worth of
current dividend covered by reserves.
The bulk of the equity book look to be increasing dividends so provides a nice amount
of leeway on the dividend outlook, just IMV.|
|That's a good way to look at it. I think the same MRCH 404 my average.|
|NAV high was approx 2.65 last year, excluding income.
IT discounts have tended to widen since (in many cases).
Provides an opportunity to purchase a chunk of income at a nice discount,
at least it's my way of viewing it.|
|The discount looks like it is starting to narrow, if only slightly, looking at the chart above that shows the premium/discount.|
|So when the share price was almost 260p was this trading at a premium to NAV? Most trusts I look at just now are close to all time highs which is understandable given the FTSE is close to all time highs. This is still a long way below its all time high.
Another trust to look at is EGL which is on a bigger discount and a higher yield. It has a narrower focus though containing lots of utility and infrastructure stocks. It's chart looks like its been turned upside down so I think its bottomed and will do very well in 2017|
|topped up today at 226 this is approx 11% below nav so looks good to me|
Good to see NAV back above 2.50, bought some today at 2.2541.
Reading the latest factsheet they are adding to HSTN which I rate.|
|This is a useful tool
|Thanks, saw the payment date in the half year report, was not aware of the XD.|
|For full details and complete dividend record, click on 'Financials' at the top of the page and scroll down to the dividend section. Ex div is 5th Jan and pay day is 27th Jan.|
|Pay date 27/01/17, not aware of the exact XD.|
|xd for dividend is 5th january according to my charts|
|Dividend declaration this week?, XD end of January approx.
Added a few last week.|
|ASCI their largest stock position by some way and beginning to perk up,
helpful to NAV.|
|Report reads well, good to see the Cobham exit pre warning,
although COB has bounced post Trump would prefer not to have exposure there.
More cautious on ESNT, however looks a small position.|
|The manager has made some decent decisions- top sliced CNA, ULVR, BATS near
recent highs, they also sometimes employ a small selective options strategy with
holdings, AZN is one recent example, all details are in the monthly updates.
ASCI increased NAV yesterday, got one lot just below 1.90 on my last buy.
On days like today NAV is going to take a hit as falls widespread atm.|
|NAV holding up well.|
|Keen on smallcaps but the definition seems generally to be ftse250, & not sure I agree with that. If it's a £1bn co it isn't a smallcap to me! Got big weighting to ASCI tho. [Edit - I know 250 should be midcaps but eg ASCI's largest holding is RPC, which is a £3.2bn co]
NG. off 8% earlier is def "up a gear".. Think it'll be a while before I wade into them, until valuations look more reasonable (though IMB certainly off a long way).
In this market, they could as easily all be back up again tomorrow.|
|It has been unwinding for a few weeks, at least in the UK- DGE, BATS, IMB etc.
Today it really moved up a gear, I added some IMB and a small amount of DGE,
not sure is that a good decision but also hold cyclicals and 20% in small caps.|
|FTSE +59 when I posted @orinocor ;)
The bond proxy trade appears to be over - some remarkable moves in the mega caps, both directions. Won't all be bad for SHRS of course, & appears to be more risers than fallers on my watchlist.|
