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.
paul217: 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!
spectoacc: "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.
topvest: 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?
topvest: 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.
rabain: If you're thinking of investing there is one thing you need to be aware of - the huge spread; and one thing to check out - the large stake in Geron Corp. ( It's almost as important to do your research on Geron as its is on BAF. Geron has not been a happy investment. fwiw I sold out 6 months ago having held for many years.
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!
coolen: Has BAF ever confessed previsouly to the relationship between Romulus (major shareholder in BAF) and Geron ?
rabain: Sold out on Friday at 0.7611, can't see how the share price is holding up in light of Geron's fall and also how the divi can possibly be maintained....which let's face it is the only reason to be a holder of baf. Am now sleeping easier!
