That was quite a top up Masurenguy. Seems that the trouble is the bid-offer spread which changed immediately after your buy.

Projected dividend increase of 3.4% in the current fiscal year compared with a 2.5% increase last year. RNS Number : 1218H 13 November 2018 Unaudited NAV at 30 September 2018 Bluefield Solar, a sterling income fund that invests in UK-based solar assets, announces its net asset value ('NAV') as at 30 September 2018. Unless otherwise noted herein, the information provided in this announcement is unaudited. The Company's NAV at 30 September 2018 was £422m, or 114.10p per Ordinary Share, compared to the NAV at 30 June 2018 of £419m, or 113.28p per Ordinary Share. The 30 September NAV is stated after deducting the dividend of 2.03p per Ordinary share announced on 26 September 2018 and paid on 26 October 2018. The 30 June NAV was stated before deducting the dividend of 1.80p per Ordinary share announced on 31 July 2018 and paid on 31 August 2018. The dividend of 2.03p per Ordinary paid on 26 October 2018 represents the fourth interim dividend in respect of the financial year ending 30 June 2018, resulting in total dividends paid in respect of the 2017/18 financial year of 7.43p per Ordinary share (7.25p for the financial year 2016/17). As stated in the financial year ('FY') 2018 annual report, the Board has indicated that target dividends for 2018/19 are 7.68p per Ordinary share.

Shareprice still increasing by an average 1% per month despite recent marketplace volatility. With a yield of 6.4% on my average investment cost and 5.9% againct the current Offer price for any further top ups, what's not too like ? :o)

Agreed Tournesol - but so much easier to have one or more (I usually buy five or more) to get your name on the register and it gives you other rights as well. For example, if there is a bit of a tizwazz going on in the company it gives others a chance to contact you cos they can see your name. hopefully not the case with BSIF - but in other instances where there has been trouble in the company I have found it extremely useful. You never know when a company will blow up. Aviva and Tesco spring to mind as does the Patisserie scandal of this week.

You don't have to have a shares registered in your name in order to get a copy of the AR, admission to the AGM and the right to vote. All my shares are held via nominees and I do all the above as a matter of routine. All I do is tell the nominees I intend to go to the AGM and instruct them to do the necessary. That typically involves them giving me a letter of representation which allows me to attend and vote. If I want a paper copy of the AR I just phone and ask for one. You don;t even need to be a shareholder to do that.

If your shares are held by a nominee, then buying one extra share in your own gets you on the register, the annual report and the chance to go to the AGM etc

"the 4% sold to another institution shoud have triggered another RNS." You're right A0002577 unless the institution was registered offshore in which case there is no legal liability upon them to do so since they are outside UK jurisdiction.

Good comments, TartShagger, BUT the 4% sold to another institution shoud have triggered another RNS. Unfortunately I am not Warren Buffet and I enjoy the trading between the green infrastructure shares cos their SP's all go walkabout every year. Any way I don't think WB would even look at BSIF - not enough upside.

The Sarasin shares would have been placed with a big institution, 4% is too large to have been sold on the open market. The fact that the share price has not moved much suggests that the price was in the current range. BSIF could easily finance trial installations of storage batteries to prove the technology from their own resources. Warren Buffet didnt become a billionaire by trading in and out of CocaCola shares. BSIF have a low beta i hold them for the rising income

On 28th September a group of shareholders led by Sarasin & Partners LLP disposed of 14 million or so shares - something like 4% of the total. So far these have not surfaced elsewhere. The price meanwhile has continued to nudge up. Interesting. FSFL announced the price of their placing and knocked the share price this morning. RED announced a placing this morning - to finance the production of their orders - knocking their share price as Well. So.. The question is whether to sell now in the hope they are going to raise money to put RED's batteries on several sites which will knock BSIF's share price Any thoughts?

RedT makes batteries : GFS finances (buys existing?) battery installations. I would just love it if GFS financed some batteries from RED, where I am a shareholder, for BSIF. That would be a tipping point for RED. I re-read in detail the annual report and was particularly impressed by the "Report of the Investment Adviser" see https://www.investegate.co.uk/bluefield-solar-inco--bsif-/rns/full-year-results/201809270700120863C/ It goes to great lengths to detail all aspects of the green energy sector and BSIF's approach in particular. They will not over pay for assets and they think they are overpriced at the moment and do talk of batteries as a way of enhancing their offering. They also explain clearly a lot of the terminology and how it is used and the relationship one to another. For example the relationship between WACC and Discount Rate is given and the effect a change in each parameter would have on the NAV. This section is a must read if you are serious about investing in this sector. Be aware though, that if they do a share issue/placing to finance battery installations, it will knock the share price as it has so recently done to JLEN and will shortly do to FSFL.

There were rumours in the market last week about BSIF. They produced good figures and increased the dividend. There was chatter about them talking to RedT and/or GFS about adding value to the portfolio by building on battery storage.

Heavy trading in this one on Friday - over 4 million shares compared with normal daily volume of about 100K. A good tick up in the price as well. Any ideas why - other than good results? I should add that I bought a few of these on their results - glad i did..

The forward yield on BSIF is 6.4% (with the RPI increase in the dividend) announced in the Annual Report of today. Coincidentally the same as JLEN (if you buy the new issue shares on offer for 102)
