daveoz1: Quote from above "By the standards of 2008 / 2009, this little Investment Trust has had a reasonably decent year". !!! What does that mean? When was that written? Am I missing something? Since March 2021, the Biotech Growth Trust price has plummeted by 50%! My worst investment by far.
steeplejack: Questor in Daily Telegraph (9 Dec) recommends BIOG after marked underperformance in 2021.
steeplejack: Oh dear,not popular comments i see.Thing is,over the last five years,BIOG is up 57%,over the same period SMT is up 375%.Investment is about opportunity cost as we all know.Now compared with Astra or Pfizer,the underperformance is that much less,over five years the former is up 97% and the latter up 77%.(Generously,i217;m ignoring management costs attaching to BIOG.)I’m really trying to justify why,on its track record,i should continue to hold this trust especially given its rather ‘risk averse’construct.It appears to be a rather broad simple proxy for biotech per se which means even a major success of one of the constituents is unlikely to meaningful alter the NAV.
daveoz1: Absolutely ali47fish - I did a lot of investing about 4 months ago and BIOG has been by far the worst performing fund of those that I bought then, especially in the last few days! Finding it very hard to find out reasons for this. Slightly better today, but I'm hoping it improves a LOT more!
tomps2: John Rosier mentions Biotech Growth (BIOG) in the latest PIWORLD interview at 12m14s Watch the video here: Https:// Or listen to the podcast here: Https://
steeplejack: 2.5% of BIOG portfolio represented by Biogen which jumped some 40% in the US yesterday following FDA approval of its Alzheimer drug.
cliff007: Ali. That's what I meant. I'm wondering what's going on. Another Investment Trust I have WWH, has suffered the same fate so I don't believe it's BIOG specific. I'm holding on.....
shaker44: Could go lower of course. Markets jittery. But price now will look low later this year imo
caradog: AstraZeneca to take over Alexion, which was BIOGs biggest holding on 31 Oct at 5.1% of the portfolio when Alexion’s share price was about $114. The cash and share deal is worth about $175 - a 45% premium on last quoted price.
rogerrail: IBT on slight premium to NAV whereas BIOG at a discount . Very similar funds, I would expect BIOG to catch up at some point
