I guess those "growth only/no dividend" funds are at the mercy of the interest rate saga. When things calm down a bit, maybe after a short recession to dampen inflation, things should go back to normal, this time without the extravagance of yesteryear.

The PE ITs I invest in at the moment NBPE and CTPE pay a dividend, so even with the silly discount, I get something for sitting tight. Still mildly optimistic about USA but not as mad about it as I used to be. :(

Interesting views - what do you make of the pure BG USA VC fund and I won't write down the fullname in case I wrongly type it but starts with an seems to have a larger discount too..

At least this one is with a country that should still be open for business in the future.

I got burnt badly with BGCG (China Trust) with the same remit: Pure growth/Tomorrow's companies. I exited towards the end of 2022, not so unlucky me this time as it is doing even worse now.

Still holding on USA, not crystalising my losses. I am considering adding a bit more at some point. I am currently piling into PE where the discounts are also too wide.

The thing about Tesla is the same as for Google.
Google is not a search engine, it is a data slurper.

Likewise, Tesla is a data slurper/AI developer that happens to sell a car on the side for collecting that data.

I am pretty sure that most of the tech companies are also not valued on what they do/sell primarily, but what they do, or will be able to do, behind the scenes. Hence the high volatility.

Anyway, USA will likely rise again.

Trashed in trash.

Got eye on BG funds - SMT, USA, BGEU - but none seem like buys yet.

Epoch-defining bubble, why not an epoch-defining bust. MoneyWeek suggests we're a year away from the bottom (but who knows).

Other problems are BG's recent fondness for unlisteds - fine, when money is free and no-profit, minimal-revenue Unicorns are everywhere. Not so good when the market turns, and revaluations (down) take so long to come through. SMT's NAV clearly isn't likely to be what's currently reported, with c.30% in unlisteds.

USA Top 10 according to April Factsheet:

TSLA (still multiples over-valued)
The Trade Desk (no idea)
Space Exploration Technologies (ditto)
Faire Wholesale (no idea)
Brex (no idea)
Shopify (cheaper than it was! 77% down in 6 months, 9% just today)

BG really like Moderna, Ilumina, TSLA, seem to be in almost every fund.

Don't follow a few of those holdings - opinions welcome.

Discount getting near highs, and there's been a few buy-backs, but another big problem with BG ITs - they're sufficiently gung-ho to have gone into the tech crash with gearing, and that gearing rises the further their holdings fall.

Well I held off...... and missed out, but in today with a decent chunk. Mind u it still looks to high, but it's the only sector I'm not in. Really not sure which of these USA ITs are best, SMT, PCT, ATT but I've probably gone for the worst future performance!

TSLA earnings after the bell.
Earnings: $2.18 (ex-items) vs. 3 cents per share, expected.
Revenue: $6.04 billion vs. $5.37 billion, expected.

Will provide a nice fill up to NAV

The funds behind the US stock lifting Covid-19 vaccine hopes

By Daniel Grote 18 May, 2020 at 16:18

The funds behind the US stock lifting Covid-19 vaccine hopes
Baillie Gifford is among the major backers of Moderna (MRNA.O), the US biotechnology company which has sent stock markets rallying with news of a promising early trial for its experimental Covid-19 vaccine.

Shares in Moderna have surged 25% after the company reported promising results from an early study of the vaccine conducted by the US National Institutes of Health. Eight patients who were administered the vaccine were found to have antibody levels similar to those that have recovered from the coronavirus.

‘We are investing to scale up manufacturing so we can maximize the number of doses we can produce to help protect as many people as we can from Sars-CoV-2,’ said St├ęphanie Bancel, Moderna chief executive.

Global stock markets were also lifted by the news, on hopes a medical breakthrough in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic could allow locked-down economies to reopen more quickly. The FTSE 100 was up 3.3% at 5,993 while in the US, the S&P 500 opened 2.5% higher.

Growth-focused Edinburgh fund group Baillie Gifford is among the major backers of Moderna, holding just under 1% of the shares in a stake worth $284m, according to Refinitiv data. Moderna shares have soared 338% since the turn of the year on investor hopes over the progress of its coronavirus vaccine.

The fund group’s two best-performing funds of the last three years hold the stock. The £3.5bn Baillie Gifford American fund, up 117.7% over the last 36 months, has an $83.8bn stake, according to Refinitiv data accounting for around 2% of the portfolio.

The £405m Baillie Gifford Positive Change fund, the best-performing fund in the Investment Association’s Global sector over the last three years, also holds the shares. It holds a $19.4m position according to Refintiv, accounting for around 3.8% of the portfolio.

Shares in the £483m Baillie Gifford US Growth (USA) investment trust were up 3.8% at 193p today, thanks in part to its $9.4m position in Moderna shares.

BB Biotech (BION.AS) was meanwhile up 4.5% at 66.75 CHF, boosted by the £3bn Swiss investment company’s 4% portfolio stake in the stock according to the latest factsheet.

BB Biotech and Baillie Gifford were early backers of Moderna, with Baillie Gifford having invested in the stock at its flotation in December 2018. Linden Thomson, manager of the £468m AXA Framlington Biotech fund, is a more recent convert, having bought the shares in March.

‘We initiated a position in Moderna Therapeutics, which has one of the most advanced programmes to develop a vaccine against Covid-19,’ she said in her most recent update to investors. Refinitiv data shows she has built a position worth $11.9m, or around 2% of her fund.

Two exchange-traded funds have significant positions in the shares. The £102m iShares Nasdaq US Biotechnology Ucits ETF, up 2.7% today, has a 2% portfolio position according to its latest factsheet, while the $18.6m L&G Healthcare Breakthrough Ucits ETF has a 1.1% position, according to Refinitiv.
