Just been looking at the annual report. New slick presentation. Costs under control. Dividend increased for the 18th successive year, albeit uncovered. They have obviously decided to get this on to the 20 year dividend hero list if at all possible. I do think that is sensible as attracting more assets will reduce the ongoing costs which are still too high.

To be fair, I think Manny Pohl has done a reasonably good job so far, albeit the performance metrics table on page 6 is difficult to follow and Q1 2021 hasn't been a good quarter so far with NAV flatlining.

Table on page 6: how does this work?
1 year ATY portfolio +3.5% but NAV -4.3%?
2 year ATY portfolio +15.5% but NAV +6.3%?

Ongoing costs were 2.5% in the current year and the dividend was 4%. I can't quite work the numbers. Performance of the portfolio appears a little overstated, but maybe I am missing something.

Anyway, I am positive for the future as Manny Pohl seems to have a good stock picking style, doesn't over trade and avoids technological obsolescence value traps (which Robin Boyle was prone to investing in).

The portfolio looks solid, albeit quite exposed to Liontrust Asset Management and Games Workshop. Both are quality companies but not cheap.

Anyway, I am happy to hold and may be tempted to add a few more at an opportune time.

It looks like Robin is finally selling out. 239p is a much better price than anyone else can get though. At least Pohl can now start to take this trust forward more positively.

I quite like Pohl's approach on avoiding technological obsolescence. Share price taken a bit of a hit today, but I'm optimistic on the revised approach. I will stick with it.

Agreed. He's done a good job. He should have bowed out honourably when he had the chance really. Not the way to retire. The share price seems to respond positively to the prospect of Pohl continuing. Best point is Moore back as this trust needs his wise experience. The other NEDs are too inexperienced.

It was a few days ago. I assumed that the price would drop by the dividend when xd, although I realise the market doesn't have to be rational. Happy to be out of it at a reasonable price anyway.

Interestingly, the share price seems to perk up a little with the prospect of Pohl winning.

Pohl is clearly damaging this company and can't run the fund from Australia. Gresham House has a great reputation. The current board gets my vote.

this is what bottomvest wrote recently on the Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust bulletin board:

"Think this share is going to get crucified in 2019. It's on a 10% premium, so you can take it to a 10% discount without any effort. The FANG stocks are now in bear territory, so there is a 50% chance they will go down 80% and and 80% chance they will go down 50%. I think this investment trust is probably heading for under a £1. "

Price of SMT today has rebounded to just shy of £5.

...better filter bottomvest like everybody else has

This EGM has resulted in the worst possible outcome very similar to our politics of a hung parliament: the existing Directors being voted off and Robin not being voted back on so no clear direction for the company,
think Simon Moore and Emmanuel Pohl should have circulated the shareholders with the detail of their plans long before the EGM motion was called and should have been a lot more proactive in opposing proposals 2-9,
small selling today has capsized the share price so to raise more money for the company seems impossible unless the share price miraculously revives,
best outcome would be for Gresham House or another institution to make a takeover offer or for the company expeditiously and cheaply to be wound up and the assets to be distributed fairly,
as a small shareholder, I fear for my investment and think there is a very real chance that value may not be realised or eaten up in charges.

Share price going down. Indicates to me that the tender offer is likely to be defeated and Robin may be getting back on board.
