|Suppose to be a safe pair of hands in a storm. Bit like PNL which has suffered this year. Might do better next year if we get a correction.
If you are looking for income, have a look at SDV or even BAF.
Or individual shares, TEP, SUS or GVC.
|Having held these for 14 years I don't share their enthusiasm.
22nd out of 23 over the last year abd 20th out of 22 over 3years.
if I wasn't an eternal optimist they would have been sold long ago. I'm still underwater on them. and yes I do know that they are under new management but......|
|Ex dividend 2nd January ?|
|Getting its mojo back?|
|A very good interview by Merryn Somerset Webb with the manager of this investment trust in current Moneyweek. Well worth a read. Summary: "A good bet for a steady long-term income." NAI DYOR.|
|Still performing pretty well. Nice rising trend. Higher highs and higher lows.|
|I'm not a chartist, but the chart looks pretty solid.|
|Bought a few today - this company has a very good investment manager and has good prospects in my view. Not cheap, but quality never is.|
|Thanks GeoSci. Bought a few more today!|
|Should be around 8/4 but it hasn't been announced as yet|
|Anyone know when this goes EX Dividend?|

Royal Dutch Shell 'B' 4.4

In short, a decent longterm hold, run by a fundmanager committed to capital preservation. It'll never set the world on fire, but under Brooks's management it should be less volatile than under it's former managers.
Discount to NAV is minimised by the use of share buy-backs.
Alternatives to this are EDIN.L run by Neil Woodford which seeks to beat the ASX, low volatility and good yield.
