plasybryn: Why is it doing so well. Ex dividend 19th November

plasybryn: Dividend We intend to pay an interim dividend of 2.7 pence per ordinary share on 10 December 2020 to shareholders on the register at 20 November 2020. This represents an unchanged dividend from last year's interim dividend and a yield of approximately 9 percent on the ordinary share price averaged over the period. A preference dividend of 1.75 pence will be paid to preference shareholders on the same date.

topvest: The dividend is not sustainable, as flagged in the Chairman's Statement. The dividends have effectively been out of capital for years. High dividend, but significant capital losses.

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

topvest: 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.

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

topvest: 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.

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

coolen: I sold out too this year. My reasoning was, as TopVest points out, the high (but uncovered) dividend was sucking-in income investors. I viewed that BAF was merely taking advantage of new rules which allows investment trusts (as approved by the Inland Revenue) to pay dividends with tax credits out of capital. A bizarre decision, in my view, as it gives a false impression of true income receipts. As to BAF's love affair with the sniffy Geron fiasco: why, out of all the stocks in the world, did they choose that one -not only to invest in, but to make it their largest investment ?

topvest: Well I've sold out of here as I think, on further analysis, that the share price is overvalued by 10-20% and I think it can only be desperate income seekers keeping the price up. My main issues with this company are: - Paying unsustainable dividends out of capital with minimal disclosure of the fact that they buy circa. £1.5m of shares before a dividend and sell for a capital loss once the dividend is paid. A crazy policy, but has maintained 16 years of dividend increases at the expense of depleting capital. - A bit of an obsession with Geron and BioTime which is highly speculative and not really consistent with what the company does otherwise. Can't see any return on this investment for years, unless Geron and BioTime get caught up in a speculative bubble. Geron is at a pretty much all time low and so US holders aren't too excited by the deal on the table! - Staff costs are £403k which is pushing the Ongoing Charges up to 2.5% - what exactly are the employees doing as film revenues are very small? - Hugely diminished investment trust portfolio - basically the portfolio will struggle to be sustainable soon as it is being depleted by the crazy dividend policy. Overall, I think you are unlikely to get 80p back so I have sold out and think myself very fortunate to have made a capital profit of nearly 10% and collected almost 10% yield each year over 3 years. Not bad for a poor investment!
