This is a lovely Investment Trust. I've been an investor for many years. Shame it's taken a dice this last year or two but I've kept the faith and will continue to do so.

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.

Utter tosh. I've been in this trust for 10 years. Paid £5,000. Stock now worth £2,400. BUT, I've had approx £7,500 in tax free income. I'm a 40% taxpayer so happy days. I believe I will continue to get decent dividends. I couldn't care less if I lost the whole share. I've had £7,500 out of it. Beat that!

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.

"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?
