spangle93: Latest Kepler research update on BRFI hTTps://
essentialinvestor: Approx 2 pence dividend available on next week's X, coupled with the current % discount near a 12 month high. Added further today.
mach100: Tender offer as predicted above.. Northern Bear tendered at 70p which I thought undervalued the company at the time but is now 47p. No price indicated as it depends on take up but says NAV which is close to the current price.. I think BRFi is undervalued too but.... After research I won't be selling because EM's have further to go and yield is decnt here.
spangle93: hTTps:// Kepler end of year view The dramatic snap-back in the performance of BlackRock Frontiers since the news of a breakthrough on a vaccine for Coronavirus began to filter through underlines what could be an interesting entry point for investors seeking exposure to emerging markets, and puts the trust back on the front foot after a difficult year. As we discuss in our detailed note on the trust, BRFI invests in ‘true’ emerging markets – ignoring the eight largest emerging economies which make up almost 90% of the average IA Global Emerging Markets fund according to Morningstar data - and investing instead in the smaller emerging markets and frontier markets, which includes countries like Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Valuations in these countries have suffered during the flight to safety and liquidity which has accompanied the pandemic, and they have missed out on the waterfall of money which has poured into big tech and ecommerce, neither of which features heavily here. Even as they begin to rebound valuations in smaller developing countries remain very low and we believe have the potential for room to run, particularly if the current obsession with tech and ecommerce begins to lose its sheen and growth focussed investors begin to seek pastures new. Ordinarily, economic growth in these countries and stock market performance tends to be more endogenously driven and so less correlated to global peers. The exception is during global crises such as this one, the scale of which has seen all boats falling with the tide. However, despite their apparent economic fragility compared to richer countries, many of the smaller developing nations have been more resilient to the pandemic. Populations in these countries are, on average, younger than those in the developed world or in the larger and better known ‘emerging’ countries which make up the bulk of most emerging market portfolios, making them more resilient to the worst effects of COVID which we now know are most potent among the elderly. This has spared them the worst impacts of the pandemic from a public health perspective and, importantly, their inability to conjure up vast quantities of cash via debt issuance has – for once – been a blessing in disguise, meaning they have not embarked upon the immense debt spree which has been seen in Europe and the United States, and for which we will be paying for until our children are old and grey. This combination of factors means that in our view the countries in BRFI’s portfolio are particularly sensitive to any global economic rebound whilst also, because they remain at relatively low valuations, equipped with some insulation against the downside should the recovery stumble. A weaker dollar environment, which is possible especially if a Biden administration manages to implement a large fiscal stimulus, should also benefit BRFI’s universe. We think the rise in the net exposure in recent months and elimination of the short book shows how positive the managers are on the current opportunity. Against this backdrop the current discount (-1.5%) – even though it has tightened in recent weeks – may well prove attractive as a potential entry point for some investors - given that for most of the last five years BRFI has traded on a premium to NAV.
loganair: BlackRock Frontiers faces drop from Interactive Super 60: The BlackRock Frontiers (BRFI) investment trust was placed under ‘formal review’ in July following ‘an extended period of unsatisfactory performance’. Over three years, its net asset value (NAV) has dropped 21.7%, while the shares have lost more than a quarter of their value. The £225m trust, which is managed by Sam Vecht, currently trades on a 6% discount and yields 6.2%. ‘Our in-depth review process will consider the various factors that contributed to the disappointing results, and will include a review of the team and the fund manager investment process,’ said Lipski.
essentialinvestor: Discount to NAV atm.
andyj: Dividend now 4.9% and has no exposure to China, the biggest regional holdings are Indonesia, Thailand, Egypt and Vietnam. All could be severely affected by the virus and all will suffer the loss of Chinese tourists, but at a multi year low, this is becoming interesting.
gateside: With the special dividend this currently yields 4.6%
davebowler: Westhouse; Blackrock Frontiers (BRFI.L, +4.2, Sell) – We recently highlighted this stock as a trading Buy, when the overspill from the recent panic in emergin g markets knocked frontier fund pricing (despite little evidence of any accompanying intrus ion into asset pricing in the frontier markets). The fund has as expected partly re-rated, though it is also worth noting that Advance Frontier Markets (AFMF.L, -7.5%, Buy) has outperformed BRFI at the NAV level in recent weeks, so it is worth watching this gap in p ricing for profit taking and switching opportunities.
