escapetohome: NAV and BID PRICE at 13 November 2020. Blue Planet Investment Management Ltd announces that at close of business on 13 November 2020 the unaudited Net Asset Value (Cum-income) for the above trust was 28.66 pence per share. Investment values are calculated using BID prices. The closing share price at BID on the London Stock Exchange on that date was 19.00 pence per share.
malcolmmm: Hope that you sold , just look at the price today, bid 23.60p and falling
value hound: This lot come across as sensibly defensive and well-managed etc. BUT... the Chairman who owns over 28% of the shares is also the effective owner of the management co., so seems to be talking a huge chunk out of BLP in fees, witness: "Blue Planet Investment Management Ltd (BPIM) receives an annual fee of 1.50% per annum of the total assets of the Company which is paid monthly. Kenneth Murray is a Director of BPIM which is controlled by an Employee Trust for the benefit of the employees of that company. BPIM also provides administration and secretarial services to the Company at a fee of £196,000 per annum." So that seems to be £496.5k (based on latest gross assets of £33.1m) plus the £196k mentioned above, equivalent to a 3.3% yield on its own. Isn't this a little excessive?
rogerbridge: It does not take many buys to move the price, 49p NAV and 3p dividend to come.
quepassa: Just released. Latest RNS. The discount to NAV is jaw-dropping and -even allowing for thin liquidity- quite undeserved: 5/04/2016 12:24pm UK Regulatory (RNS & others) TIDMBLP Blue Planet Investment Trust plc (LSE: BLP) NAV and BID PRICE at 22 April 2016. Blue Planet Investment Management Ltd announces that at close of business on 22 April 2016 the unaudited Net Asset Value (Cum-income) for the above trust was 48.20 pence per share. Investment values are calculated using BID prices. The closing share price at BID on the London Stock Exchange on that date was 33.00 pence per share. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: 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
ceaserxzy: I also emailed to the fund management, unfortunately without receiving any reply from them, to ask why they didn't buy back their shares when it was on discount of 40%, meaning they can spend 60p to buy 100 p NAV, a instant return on investment of nearly 70%, while they spent money to invest in companies like France telecom, which may never bring a return of 70% in many many years. To me it didn't make sense for them to have high borrowing in the fund to invest in fixed income, which at the moment is on very low yield and has the high likelihood of making capital loss as the low interest tide will turn sooner or later. Also I strongly suspect that the borrowing cost incurred may be way higher than the interest that they get from the fixed income they invest in, all in all making no sense except that a bigger gross fund asset will bring them more management fee, i.e. benefiting them the managers, not the share holders.
brucie5: Can someone tell me more about this share - it's not listed on Trustnet. The chart is a disaster - until last five months when it showed a fairly emphatic bottom. The mcap seems tiny at 12.8m, and the discount is substantial. Any info gratefully received.
erstwhile2: Like this finally as a potential value catalyst trade. 22p vs NAV of 37p so c40 discount [the VALUE]. Portfolio migrating to bland global equity value plus a few bonds. All the Blue Planet trusts consolidated to this one, so TER falling even if still daft high. Ken Murray still owns 25-27% of it. Well he did, but ownership of the holding company where the BLP are located has been transferred to his wife, so possibly lining this up for a tax effcient exit (ie openending the trust or liquidating at some point) and realising the discount [the CATALYST]. Also - there's a small buyback been instigated plus Murray been buying more personally down at these levels. All in all, risk loads lower from the good old days of it being an illiquid EM punt fund for Murray who proved himself to be not very good at market timing.
malcolmmm: Again a good trade at around 16p and still a ggod buy at the preent price, big buy 150k at 25p
