Hi DD Happy to help. I have held the main fund, Fundsmith Equity Acc units for over four years, annual return 18% p.a. to date, after AMC 1%. I imagine this is the fund that you are looking at. Fundsmith's website is very informative, and the AGM is made available on youtube - worth a watch. Terry is a 5 star rated manager on ADVFN (Edit: should be FE Trustnet) where further performance information is available. No advice intended, but do let me know if I can help further with your research. IWW

Good evening DD Unfortunately 'sell at break even' ignores the opportunity costs of the investment, so it might be a difficult sell to Moma Bracke. Nevertheless it could have been worse.. With regard to fund managers, if you accept that personal wealth creation has three stages, accumulation, maintenance and distribution, Mutual Funds have an important part to play in a balanced portfolio, particularly in the latter stages, where avoiding losses becomes increasingly more important. If you look at the track records of say Fundsmith or Lindsell Train, they have been able to provide annualised returns of 20% per annum, over the last 5 years. I bet you not many private investors achieve that, but instead live in hope of landing 'the big one'. Many do not.. However I recognise that there is room for investors of all sorts of persuasion to make a market, and I do wish all my fellow investors good luck! It's just that unexciting wealth creation is my own preferred approach (No advice intended)

My thoughts now turn to AHT and whether to sell at breakeven. As you pointed out earlier today it's had an excellent run up from the December low. How much more can it give on this leg before a sizeable retrace. A watching brief.

A close just above £20. I suspect it depends on today's US market whether it moves up or drops back tomorrow. I'm still thinking 'gap fill'.

Spread the risk - Agree. I do not invest in funds but I do spread my own and Mater's investments across a number of shares. To each his own as we say! - Agree

ian "Ahh so the chart in not able to help then!" ============================================ No it isn't and neither will fundamentals. "I think I'll stick to the fundamentals then, and of course only invest in good companies which can ride out the market fluctuations :-)" ================================================================================== A chart will help with market fluctuations but a when a bull market will turn into a bear market is an unknown and it certainly isn't a 'fluctuation'. The history of the market is littered with "good companies" which did not ride out a bull market. It is said when the tide goes out you see who is swimming naked.

I think I'll stick to the fundamentals then, and of course only invest in good companies which can ride out the market fluctuations :-) Edit: I am encouraged by the graphic in my post 56268, which illustrates that for each major reversal there has been a subsequent recovery- a sort of Newtons Law of investment?

ian My post 56412 was not specifically related to AHT but to the complete market. When the market decides enough is enough the good go with the bad irrespective of fundamentals. However the fall feeds through to all companies resulting in a slow down in business which affects the fundamentals. Depending on events a bull market commences. Look at longer term charts for length of time bull markets run. At the best of time forecasting what a market or share price will be in six months is a matter of luck and in the current climate it would be miraculous. You simply need to look at forecasts made by so called experts to see how wrong they are. It's why I prefer shorter time frames which I can best monitor through charts. BTW Disco was supporting a forecast of £25 not £24......every £ counts.

Hi bracke, It's about sentiment, perception (etc) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In the short term I think you are right, it is apparent that AHT traditionally overshoots or undershoots what might be perceived as 'true value' and I am sure that TA can be useful in understanding such short term movements. In the longer term, I support the opinion that the price 'reverts to the mean' unless there is a change in the fundamentals. I understand that you prefer charts to fundamentals, are you able to tell us what the charts tell us about the likely AHT price level in say six months time?

Good day ian It will do well if it closes above £20 "So what's changed?" =================== With AHT and others; nothing. It's why I prefer charts to fundamentals. It's about sentiment, perception or more likely a desire by the US Markets to drive up from the December low irrespective of anything that is negative. Such is the market until 'they' decide enough is enough and reverse.

Good morning bracke Give AHT it's due, it's certainly trying! Amazing to think that since the low of around 1607p on 10th Dec, the price has increased roughly 25%. So what's changed?
