Interesting how the rule change on commissions/IFAs moved the discounts in on ITs - which now seems to have largely worn off. Still some comedy premiums out there (eg ARR; FGT; and the king of them all: LTI) but plenty moved back out and seem to be remaining there. ASCI about right at -20% I reckon - happy to hold it forever with the divi.

In general terms discounts have widened over the last 12-18 months, in some cases markedly so. I would not buy on the basis of a % discount alone, however over the longer term would not expect ASCI to trade on such a large discount to NAV. NAV is the primary driver of the share price on a multi year view.

Winterfloods; 28 June . With a market capitalisation of £40m, the fund is small and liquidity can therefore be patchy. However, on a long‐term view the current discount of 17% offers some value and its yield of 3.8%, which is covered by income, remains an attractive feature. In addition we would expect the manager's focus on quality, cash generative companies should mean that the fund is relatively well positioned for more difficult market conditions.

EI: NAV discount has hovered around this level for whole of 2016 so not sure there is going to be a catalyst for it to narrow in foreseeable future. Same applies to Shires which you mentioned on another board. Trend seems to be for discounts to stay wide unlike in previous years where they provided good buying points. However where yields are good, as in those you highlight, they certainly provide comfort in buying at these prices !

NAV continues to tick up, discount to NAV remains very large.

If this market strength continues ASCI may be looking very cheap IMV, with shares approx 22-23% below NAV. Many of their holdings are global in reach, DPH as one example. The trust also appears conservatively managed with minimal gearing atm. If you expect an imminent market plunge you may have a different take, either way this % discount does not usually last.
