langland: Last week or so I have been buying back BCAP. PE fund where by far largest holding is close to being sold for what has been advertised as 105p per share out of the 108-10 current price. Should leave a rump of about 20p per share. However, after yesterday's monthly report from BTEM it looks as though there could be another 3-5p to come. Moulton bought 1.1mn at 107.5 a few days ago. From BTEM yesterday.... Better Capital 2009 released an update on the sales process for Gardner Aerospace. Back in November of last year, the company had announced that exclusive discussions had begun with a Chinese buyer with an expected completion date in Q1-17. The latest announcement stated that a formal sale agreement has now been entered into and that the manager anticipates the necessary remaining governmental and regulatory approvals will be granted, allowing the deal to complete in May or June. Although the purchase price for Gardner has not changed on an enterprise value basis between the dates of the two announcements, the stated equity proceeds will be higher than those implied when the deal was first announced due to Gardner continuing to generate cash and pay down debt under its current ownership. While the expected completion date has been pushed back, the shares rallied 4% on the greater certainty that the deal will complete. Despite the increase in Better Capital 2009’s share price, the implied discount on the ex-Gardner rump of assets is exceptionally wide and thus we expect further gains upon final completion of the transaction.

stewart64: What I have found lately with x divs is that folk buy into the anticipated div but then others sell out to take advantage of the rise thereby foregoing the dividend. Examples Lloyds Bank at 70p a week before x div and tanked to around 64p before we even get to the x div date. Kier Group at £15 and again tanks to £14 before the x div date. Have noticed stocks getting punished three or four times the dividend payout ad people anticipate the drop in the share price. And we are supposed to have efficient pricing.

underhill2: From the info above it could be that we do not see an increase in the dividend this year. That won't please some posters on this board who hold here for dividend growth. Nevertheless I'm happy to hold here and believe that we will see a share price of £4 by the end of the year. I also think that Brexit concerns are also holding back the share price

underhill2: There must be good reasons for these large daily falls.I would rather have an increasing share price than nice dividends.

tiltonboy: Currently my worst ever investment, things might be turning around for Dolphin Capital. Every now and again I fall for a company/Trust that stands on a huge discount to NAV, but is actually a value trap. I had monitored it for a couple of years, watching the apparent disconnect of a 170p asset value, and lowly share price with interest but scepticism. I needed a catalyst to invest, and that came in February 2015 with board changes which I believed would unlock the value. I added to the holding in June 2015, as part of a placing. The share price continued to fall, and much to my dismay, the new directors didn't last the course. So what has changed? A couple of new NED's have brought in some experience, and some tough decisions have been made. My biggest fear was of a highly dilutive share placing, and much preferred a discounted sale of assets, even if it did involve the NAV falling further. The first sale was that of it's holding in Aristo Developers for 45m Euros which was at a 70% discount to NAV. The sale of Aristo was just the prelude to what I believe is a game-changing deal, following the sale of what was one of their "core" developments. On 15th November the company announced the sale of it's Playa Grande Golf and Resort project for an Enterprise Value of 140m Euro's, albeit there being little equity value. The pro-forma debt position following these sales is 102m Euros, or 18.5% of assets. The question now is can the current 32p NAV finally be believed! I have spent some time looking at the assets, and was struck by the sheer quality of some of their projects. My research took me to Tripadvisor, and to magazine and industry reviewers, which re-inforced my opinions. There is still a long way to go, and planning for Kilada Hills would be a big step in unlocking that value. The company is no longer a forced seller of assets. Not for widows and orphans, but there might be some further upside from the current 7.5p. I have averaged down, but still need nearer to 20p to get my money back. I was fearful of a wipe-out a few months ago, but can now see a light shining in the distance. Have a look at the assets, and come back and shoot me down!

skyship: After the bizarre happening last Summer when the LMS Capital (LMS) BoD tried and failed to usurp shareholders wishes for liquidation, many continue to harbour doubts as to the Board’s probity. However, there is no escaping the 4 principal facts: 1. Their past performance with the liquidation process has been impeccable, with 63% of the NAV at the start of the process having already been returned – a figure equal to the MCap at the start of the process 2. The liquidation process is again on track with a 28.7% tender at NAV in Dec’15 3. At the AGM last month the BoD again reaffirmed the liquidation process and the continuing return of capital through Tenders; and for the first time they put a timescale to completion of the process – essentially by Dec’17 4. The current NAV = 88p; versus the offer price of 63p; ie the shares are trading at a full 28.4% discount, even though in liquidation mode These are the basic facts which should justify an element of research. That research will quickly uncover last month’s AGM statement which revealed that already the Company is refilling the cash coffers – now up to £15m, so likely halfway to what will be needed for the next Tender. So, now one needs to practice a little conjecture. Say the next Tender will be declared again for 28.7% - that would translate to 29.7m shares @, well let’s be conservative and predict an NAV fall from 88p to 85p, so @ 85p would cost £25.25m. Note – we already have £15m in the kitty! So, buy @ 63p…..sell a minimum of 28.7% @ 85p…..yes, that’s a profit of 35% on that part. But wait, it gets better. First, there is the official Tender overage – that was an additional 3.4% in the last Tender, the 4th Tender providing these profitable trading opportunities. Add to that the unofficial overage which arises from having your stock held in a Joint Stock Nominee Account. I got another 7% from Selftrade last time around – a total of 39.4% redeemed at NAV. Many posters on the LMS thread did even better than that. The Nominees overage is a fickle friend paying out better for some than for others – but always more! This aspect will only make sense to the professional investor; but those here are just that, so I won't dwell further. The final soupcon of information for the time-being. The well-respected IC tipster Simon Thompson has just revisited LMS. He wrote a piece on LMS on Wednesday. I won’t post his entire article as the IC Online is a subscription site; however, I will post his closing remarks: ======================= “Of course, the fall in LMS's net asset value from 96p last autumn, to 92p at end of December 2015, and to around 88p now will make some investors cautious even though the aforementioned one-off hit on an unlisted investment and the fall in Weatherford's share price account for the vast majority of the decline. However, I believe the discount is simply too deep given the impressive track record of the company in successfully divesting its interests. I also believe that given the surge in the cash pile, and the fact that LMS's uncalled commitments to funds it has invested in is only £4.1m, then it's only reasonable to expect LMS to make another hefty cash return later this year through a tender offer pitched at net asset value, a factor that is simply not being reflected in the share price. The company is due to report results at the end of July and I would anticipate further news on likely capital distributions then. I would point out too that every time the company has announced a tender offer the share price has bounced back strongly. Needless to say, I rate LMS Capital's shares a buy on a bid-offer spread of 62p to 63p.” ==================== So, in a difficult year VALUE is hard to find. LMS certainly represents VALUE. And if you are still looking for a hedge against a plunge in CABLE following an unlikely BREXIT vote, the LMS portfolio is 66% $-denominated.

f1araway: TWO POINTS;1) Anyone know the strike price for the scrip dividend?2) I noted an article in the Sunday Times around 3 weeks ago regarding the imminent publishing of a Government report on an investigation into the fairness of life companies when establishing final annuity payments to customers. It said that there was a degree of fear being generated within some companies as to its possible effect and likened it to the PPI scandal. Can this be a reason for what can only be described as a depressed SL. share price? Normally there would have been a regular sustained price increase prior to the record date but taking out only the previous day, this didn't happen.
