Yes discount retail is not normally a sector I'd be interested in, and they are valuing it on quite a high multiple, I think around 16x ev/ebitda, so that also needs to be considered.

Yes true, they know the investments better than we ever will. I'm just generally wary of retail in the current environment but there are clearly still some winners left.

They could have realised Action a long time ago at a handsome profit. The fact that they are holding on to it suggests it must be very special. Needless to say I'm happy to trust their judgment on that.

Yes I know how you feel. I bought a load of these at 1.80 about 7 years ago and only sold my first lump last year at 9.50. Has been an excellent investment since Borrows took over and the main reason I invested/held in the first place. Starting to feel it could be a bit lofty now though, but who knows. I've usually never regretted taking a nice profit.

This just keeps going higher and higher. Can't believe I was able to pick this up at under £8 a couple of months ago. The question is at what point this becomes expensive and time to sell? I'm tempted to treat it as a long-term hold and not get too concerned about the rising premium. I know I'll kick myself if I sell and it keeps going up (I also hold JLG which has followed a very similar trajectory and also now on a 30% premium).

Jersey - thanks. I think the valuation of Action is probably quite sound. In September's interims they said: "... we acquired £12 million of Action shares from other shareholders, increasing the 3i holding to 44.23%" and this increased Action's value from £2.1bn (31/03/18) to £2.4bn (30/09/18). So there was an actual transaction there. Their valuation of Action is done on an "earnings" basis, ie. against comparable quoted companies but I'm not competent to offer an opinion there! The valuation was increased to £2.54bn at 31/12. The 31/12 NAV of 3i was 802p, so a 32% premium suggests some of their assets are conservatively valued. (Has the premium ever been higher?)

Liquidity event due time expiry of one of the 3i funds which invested in Action having to realise. It could be anything....doubt an IPO, but could be sale of their stake to 3rd party or fund, or taken out by 3i itself. Should at the very least give evidence of the Action valuation which does seem pretty rich to my old fashioned eyes, but it is (and has) expanding profitably at c25% pa so tough one to value

It's a US investment via 3i Infrastructure, so only 30% impact on 3i plc but nevertheless an interesting new investment

@ Jerseyman - "Action liquidity even in Autumn". I'd be interested in your view of what this means. An IPO? European companies tend not to go in for this kind of thing, but I may have it wrong. A surprising thing with 3i (which I bought on IPO) is that it fell to such a silly price as 750p at last year-end.

Seen the connection with Ponroy, but not Regional Rail. Can you help on that one please?

Continuing growth in share price Decent news flow in last couple of weeks or so.....Action CM Day, Magnitude, Pomroy and Regional Rail. And Action liquidity even in Autumn looming.

Still very strong. Action presumably doing well but maybe the Magnitude deal will be good news too when we get to know more about it in due course.

Strong rise in the last month or two. Consensus suggests another 15-20% to go. The Action investment is slated for a liquidity event in the Autumn which could be interesting.

Just read to-day's presentation on Action on the website. It look's like a really great investment with huge upside potential. Worth reading

A Golden Cross is an upward move (the steeper the better) of the 50 day moving average such that it crosses through the 200 day moving average. This is regarded by many as a bullish signal. Further here: https://www.investopedia.com/terms/g/goldencross.asp 😎

Could someone please explain what a Golden Cross is, and what 'completed' means in this context? Thanks
