Is there a currency headwind here?
Strong pound / weak yen. Meaning share price rise in Japan is not translated back to pound sterling and subsequently reflected in BGS nav.

You're absolutely correct, Tudes. I guess I'm still partially believing the "sector is out of favour" line, but with every passing quarter it feels like a thinner story.

Who do you currently rate, Tudes, either Japan-only or Asian IT? I think this is an area of the world that could outstrip UK/Europe in returns over the coming years, so I am trying to build up a portfolio - so far though it's a bit spotty. The only other Japan trust I hold is JFJ which has fared a bit better than BGS

Of the 13 Japan focused IT's /funds that I track BGS is the poorest performer YTD, over 3 yrs & over 5 yrs. It's recent performance has been absolutely awful and I'm amazed that the fund manager is still in a job.

That was a good article Spangle93, I have had BGS on my watchlist for around 9 months now and decided to buy a small holding today.The timing of this may turn out not to be the best but I am buying now for the longer term and will be adding further when a good opportunity arises.Good luck all.

Daily Telegraph featured Fund of the Week

"There are stocks in the portfolio that have fallen by 60pc-70pc over the past 12 months, but if you look at what they have done operationally, a lot are still growing at 40pc-50pc and continue to invest for future growth.

This is both challenging and exciting for us, because you don’t see such low valuation multiples very often. For example, many stocks in the portfolio have sold off so aggressively that they are trading on less than one or 1.5 times “price-to-sales”, the share price relative to revenues.

These are multiples you would associate with mature, steady growth businesses, not those growing at 40pc-50pc a year.

This is potentially a once in a decade buying opportunity, but it is challenging when day in, day out these stocks are selling off – and there is no fundamental reason why."...

BGS presentation coming up with Kepler on November 4th

Hopefully they can inject a little optimism after a pretty lacklustre 12 months

With NAV around 240p it's trading at close to 10% premium!

Versus usual trading at a small discount

Share price moving in advance of NAV rises, or time for trading in for a profit?

Would a sell-off in US markets contribute to the price decline here? This is my worst performing IT over the last 6 months and while I'm happy to top-up to maintain exposure to the sector, I'd rather top-up while it's on the way up, rather than the way down. Feels like there could be continued selling pressure if US indices decide to return to their 150 or 200 day moving averages any time soon. Global equities have had a great run of late.

I have tried to understand this constant issue of New equity but I just can't - there is little to explain it available on my google searches. For BGS it doesn't seem to be helping the trust's listed price???? Does anyone have a good link or more simple/broader explanation that provided in the post previously. Many thanks.

Thanks pj but I had assumed that the size of the share price premium itself would do that, but it looks to me that over 10 issues and the 1 for 10 over the last month or so has taken the shine off the share. From a premium drop from 15 to 5 and splits still taking place, I'm still asking why? BGS is one of my worst 6 month performers, and I can't just put it down to Japan.
