njb67: Wound up, not me, not over an investment. A couple of comments. You do not need to back every share that rises in price to do well on the markets. You just need to select good companies with good fundamentals and prospects, at the right price. The fundamentals of VCT have not changed since the results in December. After years of growth, it is now facing significant headwinds that are threatening both revenues and profitability. It failed in the last set of results to offset reduced volumes in the consumer sector and is predicting further falls in volumes in 2017. Customers are also looking to switch to cheaper alternatives to PEEK. The increase in share price since the results simply makes this a more expensive and financially more risky company to own than it was then. I have no idea where the share price will go over the next six months (nobody does...), all I know is that VCT was too expensive in December for me to take a position here and that there are better investment opportunities for me to chose from.

bluerunner: Very quiet thread - probably reflective of this year's share price movements.There has been a bullish article in the IC recently. On the back of their 'good finish to 2015', a comment made in their October trading update, the company appear to be navigating pretty well through some choppy waters.Historically the share price appears to have rallied strongly towards the turn of the year after late summer / Autumn dips.Tempting.

liarspoker: Bit of director selling which I had missed previously. Bit of news - Bit of good share price action today. :O)
spin doctor: Whether an imvestment returns capital growth or income is of no great consequence to the investor, who must be interested only in the likely sum of returns, discounted as appropriate (ie distant returns are less valuable than shorter term ones). Earlier paid divis can always be reinvested. I am therefore utterly uninterested in the quoted share price of VCTs, ( illiquid and discounted as they are), but am very interested in the future sum of tax free divis over the next 15-25 or so years. VCT investments are often structured with a substantial loan (cf share) element, both to reduce risk, and to front-load investment returns. Distributed income is therefore a mix of income (from cash, quoted share divis and loans) and capital (from realised equity stakes). Exiting from equity stakes in unquoted businesses is clearly difficult, and may take many years (if achieved at all). Paradoxically the Budget changes may make the industry more competitive and offer better value and returns to the punter.
garth: But terribly boring share price action! ;-) G.
timbo003: Pennine VCT (PAV) reported today (I own 4.2K) Nice (tax free) divi of 2p payable on June 2nd for shareholders on the register on May 21st. Current share price 58p bid, 63p offer
timbo003: Northern 2 (NVT) reported final results today (I own 4K) total divi for the year is 4p, (final divi will be 3p) which is a pretty good return considering it's tax free, current share price 72-92p, horrible spread! Still they only cost me 40p per share, taking into account CGT deferral and income tax relief
currypasty: ...20% Income tax relief on subscriptions up to £100k per person per year, providing vct held 3 years. ...up to 40% CGT deferral when re-investing realised capital gain of up to 100k into vct shares, 1year before / 1 year after gain. free dividends and capital distribution. ...CGT exemption on disposal of VCT share after 3 years. What an ideal vehicle to take advantage of tax breaks, at a point when market is low, and VCT trusts are also running at a big discount to their NAV's. A nobrainer ? note... budget 04, tax status changed, 40% income releif, no CGT.. see EIS for CGT releif
zzaxx99: According to IC: Bear points: One-product company exposed to industrial slow down Investment in additional capacity coming at the wrong time Costs savings may be offset by higher research spending Bull points Sole supplier of PEEK plastic Strong trading so far this year "It doesn't take much to be a star performer in the UK chem sector....
