joy division still: 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!
29palms: 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

whitestone: https://citywire.co.uk/funds-insider/news/the-funds-behind-the-us-stock-lifting-covid-19-vaccine-hopes/a1358349?re=74559&ea=1510734&utm_source=BulkEmail_FundsInsider+Afternoon&utm_medium=BulkEmail_FundsInsider+Afternoon&utm_campaign=BulkEmail_FundsInsider+Afternoon 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√©phanie 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.
29palms: Baillie Gifford US Growth holding of Tableau Software being taken out in all share deal by CRM providing a gain of circa 34% on the holding at close of play tonight in USA. IMO, this will give a nice fill up to NAV when reported tomorrow. Another stock for investors looking to gain from exposure of NASDAQ and NYSE shares in their portfolio. As always, DYOR
dorlcote: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/investing/article-6541761/Trust-looks-forward-decade-disruption.html The investment trust that's backing disruption: BAILLIE GIFFORD US GROWTH holds Amazon, Netflix, Alphabet and Facebook - but smaller unquoted firms too By Jeff Prestridge for The Mail on Sunday Published:09:44, 31 December 2018 | Updated:10:18, 31 December 2018 It is still early days for shareholders who backed Baillie Gifford's launch of a new American investment trust - US Growth - nine months ago. Already, investors have enjoyed something of a rollercoaster ride with the trust's share price rising sharply before being hit by the big sell-off in American shares towards the end of the year. But overall, the trust has generated a tidy return of six per cent. Manager Gary Robinson is not that interested in what has happened short term. He is more interested in building a portfolio around some 'exceptional growth companies' in the United States and ensuring his shareholders reap the benefits over the long term. 'This trust does not seek to reflect the US economy or the country's stock market - the Standard & Poor's 500 Index,' says Robinson. 'As an investment house, we believe we are at the beginning of a once in a generation change in the global economy. We are going to witness a decade of disruption and we want to back those corporate disruptors that are going to prove successful.' He adds: 'If a company fits with our investment philosophy, we are going to back it enthusiastically.' Although the investment trust's top holdings - including Amazon, Netflix, Alphabet and Facebook - reflect this disruptive theme, what makes Baillie Gifford US Growth slightly different is its seven per cent stake in American unquoted companies. It reflects Robinson's belief that there are many 'disruptors' which currently remain private businesses - and will prove equally as successful as their listed counterparts. The trust's exposure to 'unquoteds' will tickle up, he says, as new opportunities are found. 'American businesses are no longer rushing to list on the stock market,' says Robinson. 'It is an expensive process with a mound of regulatory and reporting requirements. They would rather stay private.' Among the seven unlisted companies in the trust's portfolio is Butterfly Network, a company that is bringing ultrasound imagery to the masses. It has developed a personal ultrasound device that then allows images to be seen on a mobile phone. Robinson says the company's products will 'democratise health care'. Another key holding is Peloton Interactive, a company that allows fitness fans to participate in gym classes from the comfort of their home. 'In effect you can take part in a spinning class run by your favourite instructor from your front room,' says Robinson. Over the years, Baillie Gifford has spent much time building contacts in the United States that provide managers with access to private business. Robinson says such access is vital - far more important than that for the management of listed companies where financial information and analyst research is more prevalent. US Growth will make money on these unquoted investments when the businesses decide to float on the stock market or are bought by a rival. This could take a while but Robinson is relaxed. 'We have long-time horizons,' he says. 'We are indifferent to when they list. The key is that they are successful.' Baillie Gifford US Growth represents an exciting longterm investment opportunity but it should only be a small part - five per cent - of any portfolio. The Edinburgh investment house also has a longer standing fund, Baillie Gifford American, that might appeal to those who are more comfortable investing in a fund with a track record (132 per cent return over five years). US Growth has assets of £260million and an annual charge of 0.85 per cent.
pngasef: Wow. NAV fallen to 97p!! Share price holding up well despite this.
nocrapversion4: scuttlebutt.!!!! explaination., Fishers word fisher says folk try to find out all they can about a stock, before they buy, just like me or you do, articles on the web etc. but he says you have to go beyond that and visit the premises, talk to the management. something me or you cant do. if you watch one of the videos of the presentations and aim of this trust on baillie gifford website you will see, one of the managers, Helen Xiong, explain the same theory that they look for information from unique sources, beyond the normal convention and that will include looking at the values, visions and attitiudes of the CEOs of these stocks. and by meeting them in person and questioning them. "Fisher didn’t have the internet to make his work easier, but even if he lived today, I doubt he would be sitting behind his computer reading news and articles solely as his main source of information. He’d he out on the streets visiting companies, making calls, talking with management and reading books or textbooks on industries he is interested in". PS forgive me if i made a few posts recently, its i expect this chatroom to be a lonely place, lol, why cos the gambers will be on aim nanocaps trying to pump n dump imo, as for them, investing is a quick fix hobby, actually gambling,day trading and manipulating as they need an attachment, a place to go, to accesories their hobby, which is a CHATROOM. in the same way folk that do rambling seem to need expensive walkling poles, i live in the countryside and laugh at them under my breath, some hobbies, just need the simplest of things, investing should be boring, I mean some aim stocks ceos actually read these chatrooms !!! the day Tom burnett or james anderson, waste their time ever reply on a chatroom will be the day hell freezes over. lol. some ramper/manipulator. will tell james anderson or tom or helen, to take his personal £27 mill invested back to his chip shop bedsit in Bolton !!! but chatrooms and wall street and CNBC make it "exciting" lol. pps, look at point 5 of the 15 points by fisher, this is my pet hate by folk on nanocaps./microcaps on chatrooms, they say look profit has went up 100% this year, eg revenue say £100 mill profit, £2 mill, this year £4 mill. wow. then they say that justifies a 100% rise in share price,if they do that next year, and beyond the share price will rise 100% every year, NO it does not. if a stock makes £100 mill in revenue and £40 mill in profit, then next year £50 mill in profit, then GIVE me that stock every day!!! one reason tobacco stocks had 23000% share price rises since 1980, until recently, huge profit margin !!! IMO if you want to turn £150000 into say £800000 over the years via compounding, own a unique trust that owns both private unicorns and bigger listed amazing companies and HOLD IT long term. If you want to turn £2000 into £4000 then to £3000 then £8000, then £4000, then £2000, via playing, trading and gambling on Aim nano/microcaps but not via compounding, then go ahead.! bye. take care.
nocrapversion4: hi foot in mouth this is a trust not a fund, way way big difference, try youtube and key in why trusts are better than funds, yes tbh, done most of my research away from b boards, yes on some small stocks there are some wise folk on chatrooms, but at end of day, ask yourself where do the very rich, make their money??? b board aim listed nanocaps hype pumps, no, ftse trackers, no, pre ipo unlisted stocks investors , yes, or become company owners, yes, how do they keep their money, via hedge funds,once they have sold their businesses or their ipo shares. ive done the own 2 or 3 stocks only , it can be very very high risk doing that.( no way 33% in an unlisted, maybe 33% in amazon yes) i like the idea of owning not a huge amount, but more than 3 stocks, but its the proportion you own, eg say 2% in a stock that can go up 30 times, or 10% in one that can double. im finding all the well known stocks out there are well priced in, and all the listed ones that noones knows about are rubbish or pumped and dumped. also the unkown good growth stocks maybe in china, japan or more than likely the usa, i dont have the means to research these stocks fully, thus with the trust can by visiting them in person. joe average just picks a uk aim stock to try and make their fortune in!! show me a UK aim listed stock that has anywhere near the potential a young amazon, illumina, google, tesla has/had. tbh im seeing things diff now , via the unlisted stocks. but if i could go for it big time, i would own say 10 unlisted (not nanocps tho)that are trully changing the world with their new product/service and just go for it, but baillie gifford cant just own 10 unlisted and go for it, they have rules to follow based on risks and and investing guidelines. my biggest disgust is folk pumping mining/oil nanocaps that have no sales or findings, as they are pumped by what they could be???, that is selling a stock to the next excited person, to sell to the next excited person, eg conning them whilst they sell up in the rise. the trust, yes looks at the futre potential of companies, but doesnt say look if this stock finds oil, gas, diamonds its share price will go up, the trust doesnt own mining spec stocks, but newbies do and try make money on hype shortterm.the truth of these could be/may be type stocks will all come out in the wash eventually imo. in the trust marketaxess and abiomed are looking very good longterm, imo. i like SMT,but it has been discovered and its getting very big now and have a lot of megacaps plus unlisted tho also. and may in the future have less room to grow, like the buffett problem now.but usa growth trust is new, hence its just the beginning imo. the us growth trust really only owns one mega cap amazon, which i think it will hold for 5 years min, but it holds not so larger caps, like abiomed. but i feel too many folk think oh look theres a £50 mill stock on aim, hence it must rise, NO it wont it will only rise on two things, higher earnings growth and /or hype. but the truth will come out in the near futurein these stocks. thats why i feel there are really only two choices, either proven largeish caps,eg abiomed, illumina that can still grow for years, maybe 4 or 5 bag. or buy unlisted unicorns that are proving their worth and their target market with true profit growth, that can be come 20 baggers.eg go from £500 mill to £10 billion, may take 7 years plus, so be it. finally most b board chatters go on about funds are rubbish, and just own a few mega bagger aim stocks, that is misleading, why, cos they tarnish funds as the same as trackers,or trusts, yes most funds closet trckers in disguise and trackers will never make you rich, unless you live to a 100 and started at 18.but trusts that dont clsoet hug, and can leverage, funds, trackers cant, and can access unlisted unicorns, are a diff thing all together.this trust is a very high active share eg very dif f tot he tracker and very low turnover, eg it buys and holds. also they say own a few aim nanocaps and make money, no no, as these are just hype stocks where most folk can only buy and sell a few £thousand at most, these stocks will spike or collapse if any proper investor or fund tries to invest or withdraw £ hundred of thousands or £ millions. trust /fund managers try and avoid moving a stock with their purchases or withdrawal,ps , the nasty ones forward sell or their friends the market makers let them in via tricks, shafting the pi. imo. so the pi jsut tries to do the same thing by targetting nanocap hype stocks, buying and selling on spikes and throughs caused by them. but this never allows them to compound ALL their money imo or allows to compound large sums,this is just traders, rampers and gamblers playing stocks and shares with their couple of grand, hoping to manipulate a nanocap.it isnt poper wealthy investors COMPOUNDING in great compnaies for years and years with a huge amount of money. but if a trust owns unlisted and buys a set amount of stock and then holds them for years as they are so illiquid, they only make money on the IPO date, that is fine and combining this with larger good growth liquid stocks makes it a good combination imo.
nocrapversion4: I recommend any investor here logs on to Baillie gifford website and reads EVERY article in the intellectual capital section. I also think investors should take note of the very important key fact that this trust is closed ended and will own alot of unlisted stocks, unlisted should only be held in closed ended trusts not opended funds,imo as it avoids a sell off off of underlying holdings,,( it shouldnt happen anyway ,as it isnt a income type trust and it is stated this is a hold for min 5 yrs and (unless interest rates go to 10% making cash more attractive, !! than stocks) as trusts have a NAV but dont have to sell holdings, (woodfords big error IMO, having unlisted in a divided income open ended fund where he has to sell holdings, when folk ran for the hills, impatient and pensioners that need steady income)) my point is i read that the very very wealthly, eg the sophisticated investor makes larger returns than average joe cos they get access to investments average joe doesnt, why , cos these are seen as much higher risk, but huge potential, what are these? these are pre IPO, unlisted stocks,venture capitalist tiny stocks, and are usually loss making ,poorly funded in balance sheet, nanocaps that can go bankrupt and have wierd products or services, like airport luggage delivery or some crazy idea!!( you also have to prove you are an accredited, sophisticated investor) you dont with this trust even though as it is higher risk, than say a tracker,but not mega high risk,such as the sophisticated investor venture capitalists trusts, but still can produce very worthy gains via a longterm hold imo unlisted stocks , ones preferably that are actually generating income with huge target markets are how the smartest invest, the founders of these stocks allocated themselves shares and allocate rich investors these shares also to own cheaply, when say 5 to 7 yrs later min they ipo, it is the joe public that does the buying,with much lower upside at that point, whist the rich investors and company directors that do the selling to joe. now this trust isnt targeting those nanocap,types it will target unlisted companies that already are growing, not 2 men in a shed,but it will be eg at around min $500 mill cap as stated in the prospectus( not some £2 mill crazy unlisted stocks in oxford)but mostly in the san fransisco area imo,. that can IPO at say $10, 15 or even $50 bill if you google the most common jobs in usa you will see the san fran area is home to computer programmers, however i think this trust will target healthcare technologies in the future, thats where the growth is imo, using computing in healthcare. it knows the listed dying stocks are stocks like tobacco and heavy engineering,to avoid all old school but it is not targeting internet bubble.com type stocks with no earnings and $1 bill caps with no earnings, that is a nono, they target profitable stocks.with realistic futures the average investor looks at the price of a stock and the p/e,(plus is it also a hot chatroom stock) then decides to buy in,( fast way IMO to turn £1000 into £3000, if your fast in the 1week pump n dump or 3 month stock promotion farce) but not a great way and an impossible way to turn £100000 into say £500000 and KEEP those gains long term for your pension decumulation period) the wiser rich dont, they look at the future size of target market of the stock, debt levels,the laws, trends, implications, that could make or break the stock, plus the attitute of the ceo, is he/she longterm, does he/she have huge skin in the game?(is it also unlisted) that is how alot of folk never bought apple,amazon, google yrs ago, they didnt think years ahead.and that is why alot of folk wrongly buy average joe AIM listed penny stocks, i mean a penny on aim with the intention to sell up once it hits 5p (via a quick stock ramp)and dump it,that is if they can actually sell up on that precise hour/day, plus even if it has no earnings, high debt, ceo has no skin in the game etc, with their £1000 holding(NOT exactly compounding hundreds of thousands of pounds are they?) now baillie gifford will add low interest leverage in due course, Buffett always added free leverage, clever man,which they will do,as they state, this will imo make it grow faster than equivalent american fund , plus better long term prospects with the unlisted stocks, yes higher risk, but the risk is exponetial and that imo is the secret to how the wealthy get even wealthier imo. they place small amounts to get huge returns.exponetial risk take. average joe owns a ftse 100 or 250 tracker and/or buys listed aim penny stocks of 2 men in a shed which is pump n dumped or short term promoted. ps i am considering myself never to own a tracker or any aim stocks ever again.!!yes i have done, but experience and education in investing is a wonderfull thing. i also understand the the directors/owners of baillie gifford will always make the most money here, i have no jealousy, thats the perks of using a lot of investors pooled money,and taking in set commission, ( the owners will also place £20 mill of their own money in the trust!!!!!) .If you are jealous, then try starting your own investment broker house !!! thats what buffett did, he took the paid upfront customer payments of GEICO insurance company he owns and invested that free money as free leverage into stocks, buffett is still well respected and noone say "hey you made huge money out of our upfront commissions!) baillie gifford have access to unlisted companies that i do not have and very low interest rate leverage and a cummulative team of trusted researchers, that i dont also have.. i also expect not to see chat on here about look its went up 5% or its went down 5%. i expect to see chat about the stocks that it holds and the prospects, uniqueness, of these stocks as that is far better and that is what makes a company a great longterm company , not look its share price went up or down daily, weekly, monthly. i think those that own this trust are different breed of the regular, chatroom stock owners.this chatroom will never ever get 500 posts a day, ever!! IMO. And currently waiting for the trust to publically list what their first unlisted stock is that they bought into recently.if they will do that.
