Trust law in Canada prevents them from buying in there own shares.

Tilts - It seems easy enough to get an exemption when requested - as LMS did recently through not participating in the last Tender. IMO they would be granted an exemption as plainly in shareholders' best interests.

SKYSHIP, There is no DCM because they can't buy back their own shares. We trade in Canada via WINS who charge us a couple of cents to transact.

Why are you ramping CGI on the SMT thread! Did you trade in Toronto or on LSE? Spread on LSE is ridiculous, and gave the broker a bollicking in front of the managers when I met the company recently.

QP - 0ne big proble here - the family management group control CGI, so it has always been a bit of a value trap as the managers are in effect being paid to manage the family assets; and they have a different agenda to outside shareholders. Hence very parsimonious with the dividend; AND NO DISCOUNT CONTROL MECHANISM. There are times when the discount becomes excessive and tempting. A turn can then be made provided the currency doesn't move against you. Impossible to deal in any meaningful way in the LSE-listed CGI. You have to do so in Canada; and pay excess fees to do so. All in all.....value at times....but not quite the plain sailing it appears.

Reckon the discount will reduce naturally as the markets keep rising and as people search for value and yield. Discount as of today is 27% and yield is approx 3.5%. Safe and boring.

I used to hold for two reasons - the NAV discount and the currency diversification. The attitude of management makes me wonder just when if ever we will see a Discount Management System; and of course over the past year the C$ has been a bit of a basket case. C$ now looks oversold...

There is actually a decent long-term track record, and with the distribution policy, I still think they are an attractive proposition. I am more concerned on currency, than on the wide discount.

Motoring along nicely here and still at a 28% discount to NAV.

They have also got a pretty good performance track record. Currency has hit the sterling price over the last year, but it's a core holding for my portfolios.

Why is this at such a big discount? 4% yield and 30% discount to NAV. Its well diversified and invests in a country with one of the strongest credit ratings. Its hard to believe markets are close to record highs.

Just bought a few of these. NAV is £14.40. So a 30% discount to NAV. Yield 4.1%. This dog always seems to be on a large discount though.

Agreed, would appear to be a slight negative for UK holders.

Not sure if I'm happy with this "switch" from capital dividend to income dividend. In the ISA I get hit with the Witholding Tax on the income, but the Capital Divi comes gross.

15% withholding tax on dividend which, according to Sippdeal, is not refundable.

My email to Jonathan Morgan, Director of MMAinvestments: Jonathan On December 4, 2013 you issued this statement: "TORONTO, CANADA - Canadian General Investments, Limited (CGI) reports on an unaudited basis that its net asset value per share (NAV) at November 30, 2013 was $25.36, resulting in year-to-date and 12-month NAV returns, with dividends reinvested, of 17.3% and 21.2%, respectively. These compare with the 10.8% and 12.9% returns of the benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index on a total return basis for the same periods." After that, how is it possible that you should issue today's statement of a NO CHANGE annual dividend and a Special Capital Dividend actually reduced from 52c to 50c? I am at a loss to understand such a parsimonious consideration of outside shareholder interests; however I would like to hear your take on the matter.

Judging by these stats we should see a good increase in the special capital dividend to be announced shortly. 52c last year. December 4, 2013 Canadian General Investments: Investment Update - Unaudited TORONTO, CANADA - Canadian General Investments, Limited (CGI) reports on an unaudited basis that its net asset value per share (NAV) at November 30, 2013 was $25.36, resulting in year-to-date and 12-month NAV returns, with dividends reinvested, of 17.3% and 21.2%, respectively.
