Acorn Income Fund unveils 'truly spectacular results' for the year to December, according to chairman Helen Green. She said: "Measured on share price total return (share price with dividends reinvested), the company was the best performing investment company in 2012. (Source: Winterflood Securities Annual Review). "The company's performance record has in fact been exceptional over longer time periods as well. "Comparing the company to the 41 closed end funds in the Growth and Income, High Income, Small Companies High Income, UK mid cap and UK smaller companies sectors the company was the best performing fund measured on net asset value total return over one, three, five and ten years (as at 24 February 2013). (Source: Morning Star and Numis Securities)." The Numis Smaller Companies (ex-investment companies) Index rose by 29.9% on a total return basis over the year and the FTSE Small Cap (ex-investment trusts) Index was up 36.3% on a total basis. This compares to a 12.3% rise in the FTSE All Share Total Return Index. Acorn Income said its total return on gross assets was 30.5% and with gearing from the ZDP shares the return on net assets was 48%. With a rerating to a narrower discount during the year, ordinary shareholders enjoyed a total return on their share price of 60.5%.

RNS this morning: "The repayment of the Company's bank loan and the issue of zero dividend preference shares, was completed in December 2011. As a result the revenue projections for the current financial year have increased and the directors now expect that a dividend of 3.0 pence per Ordinary Share payable every quarter can be sustained throughout the year." On an share price of 183.5 (rising), this implies a yield of about 6.5% (paid gross). So I have got back in.

Just like 2008, performance spoilt by a buy and hold mentality.
