|Another fat dividend declared and would hope the Q4 is modestly increased on last year,
Q3 divi just announced.
Looking across their equity book SHRS have some very nice income uplifts,
BATS with a 10% divi increase as one example.|
|Looking very cheap if this market strength persists imv, yield still over 5%.|
|NAV ticking up nicely.
ASCI their largest equity holding beginning to perform.|
|Looking value around this price IMV.|
|Payment date tomorrow ).|
|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.|
