Well these buy backs in the 350s were timely unlike RDS who seem to suspend their buy backs when the price is low.

They have a large % of cyclicals in portfolio,yesterdays economic GDP figures weren't as bad as forecast meaning we avoided a recession hence the bounce in fund & cyclical stocks,agree fund has underperformed it's benchmark overtime,discount widened to a historical wide 10% a few times over the last couple of months & then back to nav, so can be a canny trade if you're that way inclined providing you follow the news,latest nav excluding income 396p.

Looks like ASEI is determined to keep the share price on an uptrend by buying back since hitting 350 for the second time!

Part of the problem is with UK stocks in general being marked down. This, along with a lot of other UK centric trusts, is taking more than a fair share of pummeling. This won't change, I guess, until the superating sore of Brexit is lanced.

Rubbish performance here, and widening discount although i see they are starting to buy back some shares. There has been no outperformance for years with this trust. Dividend has grown sure, but loss of capital compared with the all share doesnt make up for it.

@roby37 that could just be to reflect the pending dividend

BB A bit more diversified than most competitor trusts and the dividend record is better than say MRCH. Looks like the downtrend has resumed with the xd today!

ASEI seems to be stuck in a slow downward drift; yet the holdings look to be more diversified than other comparative funds.

A bit under the radar this, maybe others like me had SLET down instead of ASEI. Looking to buy in here as part of my core holding, 5% divi and potentially a week bit of rise in share price

Some of the competition in the UK equity income sector .... 2018 TOP PERFORMER IN THE UK EQUITY INCOME CATEGORY: Finsbury Growth & Income (FGT) +2% Another fund run by the popular Lindsell Train team, Finsbury Growth & Income has a predominantly UK focus although investors do benefit from some global flexibility. The trust is run along Warren Buffett principles that targets building a concentrated portfolio of what it believes are high quality companies that have strong brands and powerful market presence, typically with pricing power. Investors will find household names like Diageo (DGE), which owns various drinks brands including Guinness and Baileys, Unilever (ULVR) and Burberry (BRBY) in the fund, with solid and growing dividends on offer. It is the only investment trust in the UK equity income category to put up positive returns over the past year on a total return basis.

They intend (subject to unforseen circumstances) to pay a minimum of 20.2 pence this year, another 5% plus dividend increase. No exposure to tobacco in this fund, no pharma, no ULVR, DGE etc, different fund composition to much of the peer group.

Yes, part of my core holdings ... not too exciting and expected yield around 4.8% I expect some movement post Brexit, hopefully in a positive direction.

Thanks for the ASEI board, just spotted it. Added these recently, like the diversification it gives in sector positioning, re some of the other income funds.
