Best quotes available to the retail investors here 198.44p to sell, 205.00p to buy, so even a modest purchase for a retail investors of say 1000 shares is going to wipe him out by more than £65 and that's before their brokers commission and government stamp duty. Spread of 6.56pence is bloody disgusting - people should complain to the FSA imo !

Spec, just over £2 a share to buy atm, so easier to add on down days. May be plenty more of those to come.

Like your attitude @EI - amazing how many people only want to buy things when on the "up". I find a good rule of thumb is "buy when ADVFN is silent".

Added again yesterday as shares were available in under 1.95, if ASCI were to slip back in to the 180's then so much the better. Up to about 30% of the amount I would like to hold. Looking through the full list of holdings there are not many I dislike, DVO one exception as per my posts on the DVO board, BRSN looks a good price to top slice and hopefully the manager may do that.

Added some more yesterday near 1.99, Intend to add further depending on price and what else may be of interest at the time.

Finally got a half decent amount, majority at 201.77. Thought there may be some selling following the XD. Part of my longer term holdings.

Good luck SHRS, XD today of course - as was ASCI! Didn't realise until after I'd bought but makes little difference - perfectly happy with 202.3. Yes, got out of BIST again, and amazed by the NAV reported after that mammoth ftse day this week. I thought it wouldn't go up nearly as much as similar co's but: Monday's close: 128.06p Capital only and including debt at par value 120.04p Capital only and including debt at fair value 130.81p Including current year income and debt at par value XD 122.79p Including current year income and debt at fair value XD Tuesday's close after massive market rally to all-time FTSE highs: 128.11p Capital only and including debt at par value 120.21p Capital only and including debt at fair value 130.88p Including current year income and debt at par value XD 122.98p Including current year income and debt at fair value XD By Wednesday: 127.66p Capital only and including debt at par value 119.89p Capital only and including debt at fair value 130.44p Including current year income and debt at par value XD 122.68p Including current year income and debt at fair value XD Beyond pathetic. Wlll post on BIST thread to avoid clogging up ASCI!

Spec, you are right it can varely widely, at times not even 500 shares on offer, other days you can buy well in to the thousands. Noticed your post on BIST, my recent trade was at 109.75 and out next day at 111.15. I keep an eye on it as on market down days it can sell off hard, and then bounce. Longer term holders must be utterly seething at performance. Added some SHRS this afternoon under 2.30.

Similar here, large holding in SHRS and large holding in ASCI. Still - have added a few more ASCI today at 202 - unusually liquid, 198/206 in market but 200/202.3 online.

Liquidity contributes to the discount imv. ASCI is Shires largest holding, SHRS my current largest holding atm.

Needs a little nudge - few buy backs or something - 3.3% yld vs 2.3% for popular HSL doesn't seem sufficient reason for discount

Not quite 2008 levels but the discount not far as wide as it gets - nearly 22% (several times been to zero if HL chart to be believed). 3.2% yield paid quarterly, next XD should be in next few weeks.

I think its disgusting how they can present a report to the market and not even mention, let alone address the discount to nav here. I think that is extremely unprofessional. Just saying !

Tidy yield, big discount. Spread a bit off putting but added more last week. (btw @davebowler - if you're in GRIT, I strongly recommend you talk to the management).

Jack, the SHRS discount to NAV looks attractive imv. About 25% of the Shires fund is in preference shares which I would not apply a discount to, so on their ordinary equity book you are getting a very approx 15% plus discount to NAV- these are holdings like BATS, UlVR, SGE, IMB, PRU etc. Agree on a small cap trust you would expect the NAV discount to be higher, however 20% plus looks generous - all just IMV only.

I'm considering this for UK small fund with income. Can anyone offer a reason why it has have poor recent performance? My thinking is 1. Was it based on poor 'sector allocation' 2. Just poor overall management? Thoughts appreciated
joy division still
