"NET ASSET VALUE British & American Investment Trust PLC announces that, as at 31st July 2018, the value of the group's investments and cash at banks was GBP19.3 million and the unaudited consolidated net asset value of the company was not less than 37.1 pence per GBP1 ordinary share (prior charges deducted at par) and 55.1 pence per ordinary share on a fully diluted basis. " I'd be tempted at 30p.

The spread is ten. 75p to buy but a great divi. Looks tempting.

Certainly a weirdo trust, this one - what I don't get is why anyone would trade on that sort of spread. They do though - MMs taking them to the cleaners. (Eg today are trades at 100p & 75p).

Large number of trades suddenly. Guesses as to why -prompted by Lucky Mouse, perhaps ?

Yes, this company is priced not to trade. Very expensive versus net assets and dividend yield is totally unsustainable. There will be a devastating loss of capital for anyone buying these shares unless the speculative pharma investments come off in a big way.

Enormous spread on this...80 to sell 100 to buy. Someone just sold 58,000 at 76p - crazy!

The answer is yes. A roughly £2m distribution from capital. This policy will be seriously derailed by Geron not coming up trumps or a bear market. It is not sustainable. Why it's worth a 20% premium is anyone's guess!

Yes, be interesting to see if they continue with the dubious dividend policy next week.

Yes, Geron tumbled by 60% yesterday which again begs the question of why the board of a listed investment trust chose to gamble such a large slug of shareholders' funds on this one stock ? Why, out of all the possible investments available to it across the world, has this one investment trust gambled on this one stock ? And why no RNS yet from the investment trust to admit to its latest disaster ?

Looks like the share price has fallen reflecting Geron Corps halving of their share price. I wonder whether they were stupid enough to put more money into Geron at $4 before it crashed to below $2?

I'm amazed this went so high recently. It's betting the house on a loss making pharma business. They may be lucky and it all comes good, but I think this is a bit of a house of cards until they get their investment strategy sorted out. They should 1. Sell the speculative pharma business whenever they get a decent opportunity and 2. Stop destroying value through buying shares just before they go ex-dividend which is a totally stupid investment strategy and 3. Re-base the dividend as any fool can see that the dividend record is all a bit of a sham and just a return of capital.

Yes, but it's just a return of capital not a real yield. It's uncovered / covered by making capital losses on buying shares immediately before they go xd. The yield is irrelevant, when you are losing capital. A yield here in excess of anything more than 5% is totally unsustainable.

Goes ex dividend this week with a yield of 9.44% I believe.

Oh yes. They are undervalued I think, but not worth much now. Film revenues were £179k last year, and about the same in the prior year..but generally reducing from £200k a few years back so definitely ex-growth. Probably worth £1-2m tops, I suspect, which I don't think is in the balance sheet. The African Queen, Moulin Rouge and Oliver! still sell but I think they probably don't get anything on Oliver as Columbia Pictures own the rights and they were just the studio. So, probably just a declining revenue stream from some ageing films. The African Queen and Moulin Rouge are pretty good classical films though.

Quite an interesting write-up on Romulus Films and it's history. I guess this was the money behind the business originally. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romulus_films

Yes, I agree - Geron is very speculative and I think the CEO has got too emotionally attached to this very poor investment. Nevertheless, that is only one of the two big issues. The other is the fact that most of the income is derived from buying blue chip shares before they go xd and then selling them afterwards at a capital loss. This policy makes no sense at all. It will end in pain. I'm amazed that the price has held up so well. I will keep watching, out of interest, but I cannot see any logic in this being on a premium to net asset value.
