This is now known as Aberdeen Smaller Cos High Income Trust (ASCH). Do we need to change the Blog header etc.? Seems to have lost momentum. European Assets Trust (EAT) looks a better bet right now. Also bought into CLIG - City of London Investment Trust (c. 6% dividend with Emerging Countries exposure)

Not a dividend payer, but a newish Investment Trust focussed on physical silver is worth a look at. Sprott Physical Silver (PSLV) . More than doubled since launch. No stamp duty. Listed on TSX & New York Stock Exchange. Sprott is highly respected in the commodities market. You just pay an extra £5 charge.

Right. Managed to switch ASCH option on ADVFN to Aberdeen but Mon£yam doesn't seem to have an Aberdeen option. RNS history is still missing here under ASCH and SHD.

Having problems with monitors now. Name changed to Aberdeen Smaller Companies High Income Trust but the ASCH ticker they've assigned is already taken with the Asian Chemicals subindex and it's messing all my stuff up! Changing SHD into ASCH brings up 2 lines - one for each but with Aberdeen numbers on both doubling total in my portfolio monitor. Deleting the Asian chemicals line then deleted my Aberdeen line as well so I need to dig out my contract note to reinput, and it will probably just do the same again. On my trades monitor, Aberdeen doesn't pick up at all - it's the Asian Chemical index. New thread. http://www.advfn.com/cmn/fbb/thread.php3?id=25046062

NAV 158.64p (inc. 0.49p deficit on accumulated income.) Not bad after paying out the dividend.

160p ceiling finally broken. Don't look to be kicking on today, though.

I think 159.81p is a new high on NAV.

With today's strong market, NAV should be close to testing 3-year high and discount looks even more excessive at pushing 17%.

Manager's Monthly Report March 2011 Smaller companies began the month in buoyant mood but with rising tension and unrest in the Middle East and North Africa markets retreated towards the end of the month to finish marginally lower. The FT SE SmallCap (ex Investment Companies) fell 0.2% on a total return basis. After the 0.5% decline in 4Q GDP, which was expected to be revised upwards, the reality was in fact worse at -0.6%. The Bank of England voted to keep rates on hold at 0.5% and on the back of the poor GDP number economists expect the committee to wait until the 1Q number in May before considering the next course of action. January PMI numbers were strong, with manufacturing reaching an all time high while construction and services rebounded strongly. The domestic economic picture therefore remains mixed and with jobless claims rising and the unemployment rate sticky at 7.9% the outlook is fragile. We completed the exit of British Polythene Industries during the month. We have been reducing our exposure for some time now and whilst this is a well managed company they struggle to pass through the rising raw material prices. Our preference in the sector has been RPC which we reduced on recent strength. They had a recent rights issue to acquire Superflo which was taken well by the market. We also increased our exposure to Irn Bru maker A.G. Barr and Halfords. The earnings season has been positive in the main for the Company and it has been positive to see dividend growth returning. With a recovery in earnings and balance sheets looking stronger, management teams are encouraged after a few years of more cautious rises. There are a number of pressures, none more pertinent than the rising raw material prices in soft commodities and oil. Whilst these will continue to cause volatility in the short term this can also create opportunities to increase our exposure to what we believe are good quality businesses.

NAV is now creeping into new territory after being stuck around 156p for weeks. The are shares not following yet so the discount has expanded again a little to a highish 15%.
