petewy: IC Top Buy tip With a prospective yield of 6.2 per cent, Standard Life offers top-quality income. What's more, according to Bloomberg data, the forward next-12-month earnings multiple is currently in the bottom tenth of the five-year range, and the share price compared with tangible book value is in the bottom quarter of the range. Given the potential tailwind from rising bond yields, we reckon this looks a bargain, with decent growth and solid income on offer. Buy. Last IC view: Buy, 332.1p, 9 Aug 2016

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!

speedsgh: Bit more info on yesterday's Barclays downgrade here... Barclays downgrades Standard Life on GARS fund fears - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-standard-life-hargreaves-lansdown-and-sky/a957642?ref=citywire-money-picture-galleries-list#i=2 Poor performance from Standard Life’s (SL) flagship £26 billion Global Absolute Return Strategies (GARS) fund has led to Barclays to downgrade the investment and savings group. Analyst Alan Devlin cut his recommendation from ‘equal weight’ to ‘underweight’ and reduced his share price target from 316p to 301p. He said the previous success of the fund, which invests in a wide range of assets and strategies and aims to always deliver a positive return to investors, had worn off. ‘Global Absolute Return Strategies (GARS) has been an impressive success story for Standard Life, driving the majority of net inflows for the past six years,’ he said. ‘However, the fund’s performance has been poor over the past 18 months, and this has started to drive outflows...We believe the GARS outflows could persist through the remainder of the year and through 2017, and we reduce our forward estimates for Standard Life by up to 5%,’ said Devlin. Standard Life shares dropped 5.3%, or 18p, to 330.5p. The analyst said Prudential was now his top pick in the sector. Its M&G investment arm had has seen net inflows for the past three months into its flagship Optimal Income bond fund run by Richard Woolnough.

henrylightningbolt: Pierre Oreilly I made 2,350.33p profit on SL. It would not surprise me at all if the share price continues 2 rise along with other financials (sods law 4 me). I just lost my nerve & did not want 2 lose the profit I'd made. Will probably buy back as where else can I put my money. I also sold just over 1/3 of the other stocks I hold.

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.

essentialinvestor: Not predicting that price just to clarify, referenced the FEB low, the short term share price is anyones guess, however a lower UKX is likely to see a lower SL. price.
