It's quite easy, the extra funds diluted what's out there so reducing the value hence share drop BUT the extra cash could help drive up returns if invested wisely so hold on.

So no one could explain it...he he he...thankfully my light bulb has just gone on and I have realised that through issuing new equity they are realising a portion of the premium in cash and hopefully are buying more assets (with this new money) meanwhile growing the size of the fund and thus lowering the cost per unit (also reducing the dividend per unit as a downside). Hmmm, hope I have it right...it suits my brain anyway.

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.

frequent equity issues are to ensure adequate supply of shares in the market to satisfy demand - this damps down the premium to nav which has been running way too high. even +5% is high and is pricing in continuing success which is just not possible all of the time ( I wish it was but all shares have their cycle)

Can anyone tell me what advantage these frequent equity Issues are for us?

Interesting that premium has narrowed significantly since share split. Prior to share split (mid May) it was running at just over 10%. As of now it has reduced to just over 5%. A few new shares have been issued but not huge amounts.

AGM this week so vote on 5:1 share split - £10 would be nice to reach giving a clean £2 per share. This has become my largest holding, but reluctant to trim despite the near 10% premium to NAV.

A good Annual Financial Report , a 5:1 share split is proposed to reduce share price.

The six month chart is not keeping up with the intra day and the two year, on my device. Is that what you see, too?

I’ve held here for quite a while, currently the best performer in my portfolio, probably the best performer thisyear too. I was wondering if with the premium to NAV as it is whether to sell, but it keeps on performing . I do think that part of this year’s price rise was partly due to last year’s performance getting BGS lots of good publicity as one of the best performing ITs .

Just check out the performance over 1/5/10 yrs, not comparable. BGS is the class act in the sector imo.

Dont really know. I put it down to the fact that it seems to out perform other Japanese investment trusts so i guess your paying a premium for quality.

Could you say why BGS is at a premium and JPS is at a discount? I would have thought them comparable. I have both.
