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.

Bought a few of these today. Been looking at these for a long time but finally jumped in on the pullback. Don't really like buying at a premium but just cant see it going to a discount. KT.

Bought in at 501 earlier today. NAV 527p, I think the yen may strengthen a bit v sterling but my basic rule with BGS is to buy at a discount and sell at a premium. The share price has dropped around 10% without the NAV moving recently, looking seriously cheap right now.

Yes, otherwise you might as well buy the OEIC version. A bigger consideration this weekend is GBP/JPY which is unfavourable except in a hedged fund of which JPM Japan has a version. Interesting times!

Nav down by 40p in two weeks. I hope to buy in again but only when the premium has disappeared

Down 4.4% today is a huge drop for a trust like this. Cannot see any obvious reason ??

shavian, I'm heavily into HSL as well, though to be honest there are other small cap ITs at similar discounts that I think are just as undervalued - BRSC, THRG etc Legg Mason Japan was up 3.8% overnight - 40% in 6 months, 80% in 12. Clearly there is something in the Japanese smaller company space for good stock pickers. BGS is on my radar, if it falls back (mind, I held off buying Burford when it jumped from 150p to 180 - now its 340 and still hasn't fallen back!)

I got out on 23 May and spent the last week kicking myself, but these latest US jobs figures are ominous and will have a global effect which could badly felt in Japan. MF - interesting comment about Aviva/Friends. I'm drip feeding BGS money back into HSL which is on a stonking discount which I feel sure is bound to narrow if we vote to remain in the EU, as still seems likely.

You may yet prove to have been right to sell out, my timing was pretty rubbish in the overall scheme of things.

well, I sold out too quickly but a profit's a profit I like BGS a lot, much the best play in the sector (though the open ended Legg Mason Japan Fund is stellar). But so many ITs are at wider discounts than usual: I don't know how much of it is connected with Aviva's purchase and subsequent sale of the Friends investment book. Good luck all, though not in the short term as I'm hoping for a pullback so I can get back in!

I've been building up a portfolio of investment trusts. BGS has been on my buy list since August but unfortunately I did not get round to executing the purchase until last week when I finally took the plunge at 471p. It's now my top performer, no doubt that will quickly reverse.
