Wouldn't touch the ords on such an outlandish spread; but the ZDPs look serious value at 144.5p for a GRY of 7.83%pa

Lol maybe, but the mortality rate is so low. We'll see, but I always add on any big dips anyway.

Amazing! All fears about the virus now gone! No problems envisaged! But the true effects have hardly started (in my opinion)

Picked up some at 3.70 and 3.41, nice rise today, long term holder.

Agreed not ideal but perhaps less of an issue if you are looking to lock away as opposed to trade.

One can now make that "Currently trading on a 6.7% yield (based on annualised DPS of 23.0p) with 20%+ discount to NAV."

Indeed, the discount has rarely been this wide over the past 10yrs. HTTPS://www.theaic.co.uk/companydata/0P00008ZT2/performance Link to Edison research note published 24/1/20 - HTTPS://www.edisongroup.com/publication/small-cap-growth-backed-by-c-5-yield/26025 Note that, thanks to the recent share price fall and 10% increase in the dividend, the yield has become even more attractive since publication of the note. Currently trading on a 6.3% yield (based on annualised DPS of 23.0p) with 20%+ discount to NAV.

Looks interesting but it looks to be 30% geared?

Topped up this morning, looks good value compared to the rest of the smaller companies sector that has no discount to nav anymore in the IT's

Since this is mainly a small cap fund, it is much more exposed to the UK economy than income funds that focus on large caps (which tend to have overseas earnings and benefit from the lower pound). Small caps are out of favour mainly due to fear of brexit. The widening discount represents weakening sentiment towards small cap stocks IMHO. I am a buyer at these prices.

I think it is important to bear in mind that the NAV has been largely static throughout the past few months. As primarily an income fund that is reassuring. The widening discount affects us of course, but it also offers long term opportunities to buy in cheaper than before with the dividend now nearly 6%.

Possible buy back of shares. Also do more promotion, so more private client brokers and institutions buy the stock..get John baron to put this back in his income portfolio..

Like what exactly? Best thing they can do is increase NAV , the share price will catch up, but easier said than done!I suppose they could de-risk by liquidating some equities and significantly increasing the proportion in the income fund.

I may contact the managers, see if they are doing anything to address the discount here, its gone way too far. Problem with active management, once poor performance happens, its hard to recover.

Agree was looking good last year, but not worth bailing just now , I too will hold on and get out at next bounce hopefully.

All trades are showing up as sells for some reason, including the 1000 shares that I just bought at 340. This is ranked 275th out of 304 trusts for 1yr performance on trustnet with -21.2%, but the majority of that decline is due to the widening discount. This time last year the discount was 1% whereas this morning it's closer to 18%.

Does anyone have any idea why AIF is on a permanent decline. Hard to see why given the underlying NAV etc. Seems to eb no-one buying and lots selling. Recently it seems to have gotten worse.

Andy, I would think that the Woodford effect will mainly be on open ended funds, so ITs may in fact gain from the Woodford debacle. Although he does run the IT Woodford Patient Capital, the massive problems have been caused by the redemptions in his open ended funds.
