|It has not really been the year of the smaller company.
Although on a stock-picking basis, individual picks have done very well, like Avesco, up 225% on the year.
But over time small companies collectively should continue to outperform.
All leading research academics repeatedly demonstrate that over time smaller companies outperform larger companies.
|Thanks QP. This has done OK this year but nothing special. One of my least volatile holdings.|
|NAV should be up a bit in today's announcement!|
|Tried to buy big volume today. No luck.
SDV's largest single portfolio holding of 4.5% in Avesco, announced a recommended offer yesterday at at stonking premium of 125% to the prior close.
Had been trading around 300p. Recommended Offer agreed at a whopping 650p.
This will be a major shot in the arm for SDV.
Hence today's uplift.
I presume SDV will accept this fantastic recommended offer.
Well done, SDV for picking Avesco - a truly phenomenal AIM performer.
ALL IMO. DYOR.
|Yes looks like the Baron effect has worn off now!|
|NAV on the up again.
|ASCI is currently at a 20% + discount to NAV whereas this is at a small premium.|
|In John Baron's latest Investment Trust Portfolios column in Investors Chronicle...
"Within the Growth portfolio... I introduced Small Companies Dividend Trust (SDV) while on a 10 per cent discount and offering a 4 per cent yield...
I will explain in more detail the attractions of both SDV and FPEO in next month’s column."|
|Looks like another one of those death crosses on the chart above in the header looking at 200/50 day MA's|

|I guess this is still good value.
Yield near 4% and ex dividend later this month.|
|Ditto Mr Bio. here's a better 2016. hopefully.|
|Think this is my best holding this year. Shows what a dismal year I have had really. But this lot seem to know what they are doing to justify their fees.|
|18 month high @193.50p.|

|I see the trust took a stake in CMH this week. This is a worry because although CMH is not likely to go bust, its management team are struggling to get the group good and it most certainly wont be paying a dividend in the next year from what i can see.|

|This ones lagging many of the other smaller co trusts. Im sure it will catch up eventually|

|Looks like a 12month high today on the share price and also the NAV. The discount is still pretty wide at 17%, perhaps sentiment will change at some point.|
|I guess its just a mark of intention rather than anything else. Perhaps they will also increase the next one.|
|Less of the 'skinny'! :-)|
|My thoughts exactly. I wonder if its because they want to keep some float so as to rebase the forward QTR dividend around the 2.5p mark eg 10 pence for FY 2015/2016.|

|The 'special' dividend is a bit skinny at 0.3p. What was the point of that?|
