essentialinvestor: Arguably AAIF is still the best value in the sector on a 10% approx NAV discount.
essentialinvestor: SOI now trading very close to NAV.
goldpiguk: Hi davebowler, Today I reached my target ISA holding of 10,000 shares in AAIF, with the purchase of 1,050 shares. The shares are currently trading at 224-228, a little below the 233 shown on the advfn graph at time of purchase. In recent years AAIF has put in a rather lacklustre performance compared to its peers. Having said that my total AAIF holding is up about 20% on my average purchase price. All my AAIF shares were purchased over the last year. As your posts show, the income including and excluding NAV are currently the same,(this is the case when income does not fully cover payout when xd) but there is good reason to think that over the next year or two dividend income growth should trend higher. The two largest (heavily weighted) holdings in the AAIF portfolio have excellent dividend growth prospects. I would expect the significant discount to NAV to reduce over time, especially since Asia should benefit from portfolio rebalancing as we come out of the global pandemic. This geographic area also looks undervalued compared to other geographic regions. In the Asian sector I also hold HFEL. I still remain cautious on dividend sustainabilty/growth at HFEL, which trades at or near NAV with an already very high dividend payout. I am now starting to finalise which IT I will start to build a new position in. I hold EDIN, DIG, MRCH, AAIF and HFEL in my ISA portfolio. Goldpig
essentialinvestor: Would hope we can get nicely past £2.50 a share in 2021, with a nice dividend on top.
gateside: AAIF pay their dividend of 2.25p tomorrow
pj fozzie: I'm enjoying this discussion. My exposure to the FE is through AAIF and HEFL. HFEL is by far my larger holding - due to the higher income. I retired early and am living on the income from my portfolio. I'm currently still adding to HFEL. It's worth noting that while many ITs are drawing on their reserves this year to maintain dividend pay outs, HFEL actually added to their reserves. This suggests to me that the current price is undervalued and has scope for significant recovery still. Cheers, PJ
speedsgh: Hi Goldpig. Thanks for sharing. My exposure is currently confined to HFEL but am tracking AAIF & SOI. Also, for a slightly different angle, I am looking at UEM which has over 50% exposure to infrastructure & utility investments in Asia. ATB
goldpiguk: Hi speedsgh, Of course I don't mind you asking. It is still very early days in my decision making progress. Should I consider a country specific trust, like Fidelity China Special Situations (FCSS), or another Asian Pacific trust such as Schroder Asian Pacific Fund (SDP)or the Oriental Income Fund (SOI)? At the moment I have not found an obvious answer or stand out buy. This year I have been much slower funding my ISA (largely because of the pandemic). Being self employed,I have been keeping larger amounts in cash than normal. I expect to continue dribbling money into my ISA, adding to AAIF and possibly a few more HFEL, so it will not be until the summer of 2021 when I need to make a final decision on my third asian trust. I now hold 7,000 AAIF, with a target holding of 10,000-12,000 shares. My normal book value is up to about £50,000 for the UK IT sector. (Due to the pandemic I exceeded this with my EDIN investment.) For IT's in the Asian sector I currently have a £25,000 investment ceiling in any one comapany. This is in part because I know less about Asian markets and don't follow them as closely, so want to spread the risk a little more. In any decision my criteria will be far less about income and much more about growth. Goldpig
goldpiguk: Hi EssentialInvestor, I have been quietly adding to these over the last few months. I am becoming increasingly convinced that Asia will emerge from the coronavirus pandemic, in rather better shape than many western economies. Asia still offers enormous growth prospects over the next decade, but of course is not without risk. My intention is to build holdings in several Asian orientated IT's. I currently hold HFEL and AAIF. I decided not to add to HFEL: the dividend seems almost too good to be true! AAIF has a couple of very large holdings in the portfolio, which could hold performance back if Taiwan Semiconductor, for instance, does not live up to expectations. However if the projections I have seen for Taiwan Semiconductor turn out to be accurate those shares have a long way to go; so there is the potential for AAIF to outperform its peers. Although I feel a little uncertain about AAIF maintaining its current dividend payments in 2021, I have my eye more on 2030 and the potential overall return. AAIF should do well, taking a ten year view. Goldpig
broadgreen: I have some of these, held for income obviously, and to diversify sources of income. As it has traded mostly in a 10pc range (200p - 220p) for a while it certainly isn't exciting, though stability is welcome. I'd hope that the forthcoming dividend will be hiked a little to bring the full-year payment up. 2.5p vs 2.4p last year wouldn't surprise me but better than nothing. I used to hold Newton Asia Income but switched into AAIF as I prefer investment trusts to funds. I hope that if the underlying investment performance improves AAIF might get some attention, and the discount might close to give a period of better share price performance, as I think it is an inexpensive trust.
