speedsgh: Dividend Announcement - HTTPS:// The Directors are pleased to declare a fourth interim dividend for the year ending 31 December 2020 of 5.75p per Ordinary Share which represents an increase of 10.58% compared to the corresponding dividend for the year ended 31 December 2019. With this distribution the total dividend for 2020 will be 23p per Ordinary Share, a 10.58% increase on the 20.8p distribution in 2019. COVID-19 has led many UK companies to reduce or cancel dividend payments and this has impacted Acorn's earnings in 2020. The 23p per Ordinary Share distribution for the year will be achieved by drawing from the Company's revenue reserves. At 31 December 2019, Acorn had revenue reserves equal to 1.04 times the 2019 dividend. The Directors consider the current situation is one in which it is appropriate to draw on those reserves in order to maintain income levels for investors. Acorn will not distribute from capital. Dividends will only be paid out of current period revenues and revenue reserves. The recovery in the income flow from the Company's Smaller Companies portfolio is progressing well. Many of Acorn's investee companies initially adopted a cautious approach to the uncertainties that lay ahead and reduced or passed their dividends. These companies are now resuming dividend payments. A few have actually increased dividends above their 2019 level. There are nine investee companies in the portfolio that have not yet resumed dividends however our investment advisers for the Smaller Companies portfolio believe that most of these will make distributions in 2021. The directors will monitor the level of income generated by the portfolio and this in turn will inform decisions on the appropriate dividend distribution for 2021. Ex-Dividend Date: 3 December 2020 Record Date: 4 December 2020 Payment Date: 18 December 2020 Dividend per Share: 5.75 pence per Ordinary Share (Sterling)
2wild: Got back in Friday at 257.7p, just below the 256-260 mid price, on a 14% discount to 300p NAV and 8.9% yield.
speedsgh: Interims are out. Q3 dividend payment maintained at 5.75p... Half-year Report - HTTPS:// Dividend Announcement - HTTPS:// "At 31 December 2019, Acorn had revenue reserves equal to 1.04 times the 2019 dividend. The Directors consider the current situation is one in which it is appropriate to draw on those reserves in order to maintain income levels for investors. The interim results published today show that the revenue reserves at 30 June 2020 stood at 14.6p per share having been 21.6p per share at 31 December 2019. Acorn will not distribute from capital. Dividends will only be paid out of current period revenues and revenue reserves." "... the directors believe that 5.75p per share is a reasonable target for the fourth interim dividend that will be paid in December; however shareholders should note that the actual dividend will be set in the light of income earned over the remainder of the year as well as the outlook for 2021 and beyond."
speedsgh: The million dollar question. Will the current level of dividend payout (5.75p per qtr/23.00p annualised) be maintained? "The first interim dividend for 2020 was increased by 10.57% to 5.75p. The Company's income will inevitably be impacted by recent market developments. However, the board recognises the importance of dividends to shareholders and it is the board's intention to maintain the second interim dividend whilst keeping matters relating to future dividends under close review but noting the availability of a healthy dividend reserve. Earnings per share for the year of 22.31p covered the dividend distribution by 107% and resulted in an addition to revenue reserves of £239,024."
stueybabes: Nice jump yesterday. Various resolutions passed at the AGM but not sure any of them justified an 11% price increase. Not complaining though!
orinocor: I'm not sure about this one at all. If the value of the investments fall 33% the NAV goes to zero! Very, very unlikely but who knows what could happen in the months ahead. As a comparison I have been buying Invesco Smaller Companies trust. The epic code is IPU. You can currently buy these shares at around the mid price so the discount is 15%-16% and it has no gearing. On the contrary the latest factsheet to the end of June shows it to have net cash of 1.9%. So a completely different risk profile but the shares were 50% higher at the start of the year so a lot of potential upside and for me a much better proposition.
biggest bill: I had a look at rmmc but that has recovered much further from its March lows. I think the upside here is much greater. Rmmc also has a much bigger bid/offer spread than aif which is very offputting.
biggest bill: I noticed that the shares bottomed out at 215p in March when the ft100 fell under 5000. The current price is not much above that.
biggest bill: I am considering buying here because of the huge and growing discount. Small uk companies have been really hammered this year and look very good long term value. The discount here looks really out of line compared with other small company investment trusts. Is there a share overhang which is forcing the price down recently?
2wild: I sold SDV at 135.2p, above NAV last month. Been buying AIF at dicounts of 20-26% over last few weeks. Yesterday sold ASIT at 1% below NAV. All 3 trusts invest in smaller higher yieldig companies and geared by a Zero Pref. Discount here is very odd.
