gorse: Does anyone know if there's normally a 4% spread - 212/220 - in the Bid/Offer price?

spectoacc: I looked last week - and promptly forgot what I concluded. I think the anomalous thing is every other damned trust, not being down at these discounts. As a mid-cap punt, on the worst being behind us or not far off the bottom, ASCI looks decent enough. Personally I think we're going a lot lower, over a protracted timescale, but that's not a particularly gutsy call when the world economy is shutting down, divis are being cut, rents aren't being paid, people aren't going to work.

riverman77: Running through the investment trust discounts, this looks a clear anomaly. The discount had widened to over 25% which is much more than similar midcap funds, where discounts are only slightly wider (ignore the name of the trust - this mainly holds midcaps). Plus, ASCI is one of the better performing trusts and has a focus on high quality, defensive companies. Can't see any reason why this should have sold off more than everything else.

spectoacc: AVV - £3.9bn VCT - £1.9bn DCH - £2.1bn AGR - £1.2bn That's the top 4 holdings, making up c.15% of the fund. They may well fall under "mid cap" for FTSE definitions (AVV may be pushing even that), but not sure they do for me (and Small they are not). It's strange when ASCI has just £70m of assets that they feel obliged to move that far up the market cap spectrum. Still - I've been making the same point for about 5 years so ASCI aren't likely to change :) I reckon c.25% discount again would interest me.

essentialinvestor: Yes agree, I've made the same point on the SLA board previously. In terms of ASCI, it looks a GARP approach. Very much hope SLA can keep hold of Jonathan Allison, he's made some very astute stock selections. The current NAV discount already looks generous, this is at least worth watching. There's also 120% the current annual dividend in reserves.

essentialinvestor: ASCI has limited UK cyclical exposure, can only think of MGNS Or MANX MANX- which is non cyclical but heavily dependent on IOM economic fortunes. Neither is it a value oriented trust, that would be something like MUT or MYI. Mentioned Brexit only because it impacts sentiment towards the sector, and sentiment may drive the NAV discount higher. In the case of ASCI, I think that may be misplaced.

spectoacc: @riverman77 - true, and to be fair I can't recall what the FTSE Small Cap limit is. It clearly doesn't include DPH, VCT, AVV & AGR tho, so ASCI really need a different benchmark, if not a different name. I guess there's "Microcap" beneath Smallcap too. @EI - chances of hard Brexit seem to be growing by the day. My favourite quote is the one pointing out that there's a majority in Parliament against every conceivable outcome :)

spectoacc: @topvest - my issue with ASCI has always been that it totally isn't "..Smaller Companies..". Is badly mis-named, and has the fixed income side to it too (which looked a little ropey when Aviva pulled their recent stunt!). But made good money on it in the past - as a midcap fund, it doesn't deserve this discount IMO, tho want a little more leeway before I buy again. Fair point about performance back to 2007 too. Their benchmark is "FTSE Small Cap ex.IT TR GBP", and yet: Top holding market caps: XPP £592m DPH £3.18bn VCT £2.68bn AVV £4.46bn AGR £1.36bn None of those would I consider "smallcap"!

topvest: Yes, keeping an eye myself to get in for the first time. I would question the long-term performance point a little as share price all time high was in 2007 - never regained and the dividend is 50% below then. Seems to have been caused by excessive gearing running into the last recession. Still, recent performance has been OK and gearing at 10% is now much more sensible.
