Their NAV surged 7% last month for March but the share price stayed the same. The Investment Trust that the market forgot? A tasty tiddler perhaps. Big bid-offer spread and tough to buy in a very thin market. Very large discount to NAV even allowing for its exotic qualities Now that they publish their full portfolio frequently/monthly adds some comfort. Good spread of shares in the portfolio. No massive dominant positions. The very high yield currently looks well supported. Some of the shares/positions which a year ago would have looked like barge-pole territory are now really coming into their own. This is encouraging. They show a NAV of 47.81pence versus a mkt price of 33p ( be prepared to pay a penny over the odds for size). ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

Page 1 of the accounts; it's actually worse than that at 3.77%.

Where do you get that figure from? What adds another 2% to the fees? I compared the July portfolio to the Jan portfolio (the full list) and it hasn't change much at all, less than 25% churn I would think.

Ongoing costs are about 3.5% I believe! Also, transaction costs are high as they turn their whole portfolio every 6 months or so and these costs are on top.

Thanks topvest. Annual fee is 1.5% which is high but not astronomic?

More of the same in my view. Moderate performance outweighed by high costs. Having said that, they did do quite well about 10-15 years ago. I will hold my few as almost not worth selling.

topvest, what do you think the future holds here? They are overweight financials I see, but otherwise is this not a boring equity income trust, with a decent yield and a decent discount (for new buyers at least)?

Cheap for good reason. An unhappy holder!

I still got some, managed to sell half at around £2 years ago, good div now and they have risen from a low of 16p but don't seem to be going anywhere lately even after the revamp.I think they keep going to give themselves a good living.They should wind this up and distribute the capital back to shareholders.

Agreed. The biggest "dog" investment trust award is secured. Unfortunately, I still own some. Remember having tried to sell them about 10 years ago and couldn't. Since then it's been downhill. They over trade and have too high costs. Rubbish!

Always has been on a monster discount (bar 2006-7 mania I think), and always will be. Ken Murray is an unreliable steward and a particularly poor stockpicker/market timer. Sorry to dash your enthusiasm, hope you're right, no dog in the fight.

discount is huge and a good yield well undervalued

Still looking interesting kiwi. They may have done well with Friends Life & Catlin but will have taken a hit on their largest holding BNC this week. Be interesting to see next NAV.

These are starting to look interesting...lots of EU financials which, some say, are undervalued and due a bounce? Huge discount to NAV and decent divi (if indeed they repeat it). However, seems difficult to find either an interim or annual statement to check what the charges are these days? Anyone please?

Looking at this but pretty hefty spread @ about 10% (35p bid and 39p offer)? Has the money been made or will the discount continue to fall?

Yes, looks a bit better doesn't it! Slightly more optimistic, but costs are still too high, as is portfolio turnover.

This is all about management fees. They got out of bank stocks at precisely the wrong point and turnover their tiny portfolio several times a year which is ridiculous (and expensive)! In my opinion this is one of the worst investment trusts on the LSE. There is no reason to suggest that Blue Planet will change their spots. The only upside is for Ken Murray to sell out his holding or employ a professional manager of repute. Both are possibilities I suspect as Blue Planet can't be the most successful of asset managers given their dismal record here. In the meantime they keep skimming big investment management and administration fees! I still remember when I tried to sell this 5/6 years ago, but the sell didn't go through and I've been left with this rubbish ever since.
