Simon Borrows (CEO) has been the most prolific share buyer in the FTSE 100 in the last few months. Is that a sign of better things to come from the company? hxxps://www.investorschampion.com/channel/blog/follow-the-directors-whos-buying

Jerseyman - The bulk of my holding is in ISA wrapper. That account is managed on a discretionary basis, and, in common with you was bought at a different time - some 8 years ago. However, although I have technically broken even, todays little purchase was in a SIPP. Mine (and my wife's) SIPP are soley as a vehicle for IHT planning - probably the most loathesome tax ever contrived). We do not propose to need to draw against our dividends from ISA accounts once we retire (not too far away now). The purpose of todays purchase was for dividend income rather than capital growth. I do not see the down trend being broken in the short term with the negative sentiment worldwide for financial markets, however, as a sector, in these SIPP accounts, I do not have exposure so am making adjustments to the SIPP accounts as part of my planning for 2019.

Good luck. I have held since lower levels but am convinced about the overall underlying quality of the portfolio. However the Action investment is too large, being c20% of the portfolio value. It looks like it has further to grow and is being treated as a long term hold, but if that had a hiccup I fear a harsh (over)reaction in the share price DYOR etc etc

Seems like a decent point of entry for a dabble. Don't get excited as I am not convinced that the base has been found so am keeping my powder dry

I can't understand this fall today. Good set of results, increased dividend, lots of cash to invest, 3i Infrastructure doing really well. Only small blip was Action slowing its store openings at end of 2018 due logistics issues, but still growing incredibly fast and profitably. Maybe because Action is a big chunk of 3i value it got clobbered. Overdone, very happy to be invested here.

I too regard it to a large extent as a European play, so happy to hold. Good businesses, good management etc. etc.

Yes I can see uk focused stocks are getting hammered, but don't see why this should effect 3i - its predominantly European businesses, not directly effected by events in the UK.

Any ideas what's going on here? Flicking through the report, I get the sense that Action is perhaps expanding a bit too rapidly? Adding another 250 stores and now experiencing a few supply chain issues. It is around a third of nav and priced on quite a punchy multiple of 16.5 - I guess the fortunes of 3i are therfore very closely linked to Action. Not a holder so don't have strong view on the merits of the Action business, but this is now trading close to nav so on my watchlist.

Service Interruption We are currently experiencing systems issues due to an external interruption, support teams are working to restore services as quickly as possible. This is a service interruption issue which we are monitoring closely.

Agreed Truffle. Can't fathom the short term share price when everything longer term looks good

Thanks H2. You could be right about the reasons, trade wars unlikely to have direct impact on 3i but may be caught in FTSE crossfire. Picture in Europe still confusing at economic level, growth appears to be back generally but Germany not too confident it will be sustained. Real political mess in Germany, Italy and big issues in Turkey and Greece. Could be more prosaic reason, just some profit taking combined with general turndown in world markets due The Donald's latest attempt to fabricate a crisis followed by his actions fixing it, so he can be seen as heroic, in his mind at least.

Jerseyman I would think that the shift in sentiment about European growth with lower PMI and GDP numbers plus the post election worries about Italy are hitting 3i share price Doubt 3i would be directly hit by US tariffs, but any knock on impact to the economy is likely to hurt 3i. Their holding in Weener plastic is probably suffering from environmental pressures like RPC and others. Early in the year many commentators were flagging Europe as a good recovery play, don't hear that much now! 3i is still on a 31% premium so is vulnerable to big reverses when the mood swings. Personally I think longer term 3i will continue to do well and current negative sentiment will be a top up opportunity but there may be more fall to come first. GLA H2 H2

Any ideas as to why 9% drop in share price in last month after good results and increased dividend, and increased Soc Gen TP? Contrary? Don't understand
