mw8156 Athelney is priced very close to its NAV whereas Western is 58p to buy and NAV is now around 107p , including 10p for Hartim which is valued around 0p in accounts since valued on 50% of shareholder assets as reported in Hartim accounts, rather than say 10 x PAT. (WESP on ISDX.com market)

This has been on a bit of a roll of late with good stockpicking but probably fully priced now and it's getting harder and harder to find small cap bargains so he's been investing in insurance cos Amlin, Catlin, Lancs as well as property SREI, SLI, Picton, Redefine. A pretty good investment co but the only drawbacks are that the costs of running the co in relation to the assets are very high, the shares are very illiquid and the investing presently relies on one individual who though v experienced and crafty at finding obscure undervalued stocks eg Goodwin@180p, mountview,camellia@1200p might be getting near retirement age, possibly.

"disappointing investing in some of the 'value traps' you mention above" 'value traps'.....now that's an interesting subject....(something I try to avoid, although like most people, once in a value trap it can take some motivation in order to leave !) ----- Athelney now trading I think around the NAV have any Athelney shareholders looked at other similar investments to see if trading at a large discount to NAV and perhaps worth moving across ? WESP (Western Selection on ISDX) perhaps ?..at a large discount at present...and pays around 4% divi which looks very safe

Blimey. A little buy and these go flying. I've already got enough. It's not a bad investment company for it's size. Happy to hold, but don't want lots more.

Agree Think they are chasing yield too much; understandable as it is eligible for ISAs now but this has resulted in sale of some good companies eg Fenner, Nichols, part sale of Goodwin and others and disappointing investing in some of the 'value traps' you mention above

Not a great performance by Robin over the last year or so. Buying and selling HMV, presumably at a very large loss was a very poor decision. Robin has a good record, but buying something like this which was quite clearly in terminal decline (and still is!) necessitates a bit of a re-think. This was not the only dog purchased, with Wincanton another disaster area. Best to avoid companies with 1. No revenue growth; 2. High debt; and 3. Large pension deficits is always a bit of a golden rule in small cap investing. Robin has a reasonable record, but would have thought he might have learnt this by now. Anyway, lets hope things improve in 2012. Not sure why he sold J Smart & Co either given the massive discount versus book value and a steady dividend.

Quite an interesting placing of c10% of the enlarged capital to Hyperion Asset Management. They seem to have protected their position with the right to buy another 20% from Robin Boyle, if he wishes to sell at some point in the future. Not very well explained, but I suspect this is a way of ensuring the Hyperion don't get diluted. Overall, it's good news. Should improve their firepower and no real dilution from the issue.

Yes, I bought some more of these recently. Good yield at this price. Should be a consistent performer over the next few years.
