rcturner2: Great share price performance here.
tiltonboy: In C$ terms, the CGI share price is now back to where it was on 7th June 2008...ten years to the day. Difference now is the share price is on a 32% discount to NAV!
quepassa: STUNNING PERFORMANCE. UP 33% OVER TWELVE MONTHS. WELL DONE TO THE CANGEN TEAM - AND KEEP IT UP PLEASE FOR 2018!! READ THIS RNS RELEASED YESTERDAY 5th DECEMBER: 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, 2017 was $32.37, resulting in year-to-date and 12-month NAV returns, with dividends reinvested, of 18.5% and 19.0%, respectively. These compare with the 7.8% and 9.6% returns of the benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index on a total return basis for the same periods. The closing price for CGI's common shares at November 30, 2017 was $23.80, resulting in year-to-date and 12-month share price returns, with dividends reinvested, of 26.5% and 33.6%, respectively. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
tiltonboy: 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.
skyship: 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.
tiltonboy: 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.
davebowler: 28 March 2014 Toronto, Ontario, Canada - Canadian General Investments, Limited, a closed-end investment company, announces the following Canadian dollar values as at the close of business March 28, 2014. Net asset value (unaudited) per common share: $ 26.31 Closing market price per common share: $ 18.00 Discount to net asset value per common share: 31.6%
skyship: 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.
skyship: David - Welcome aboard. I have been in reasonably frequent contact with Jonathan Morgan, a director of CGI and one of the Morgan family which controls the investment managers - MMA Investments. I put it to him that they should be installing some effective Discount Control Mechanism(s) - possibly buybacks, though not necessarily so. He replied that MMA has a large historic stake (c.33%); and this precludes them from implementing buybacks as it would effectively increase their stake; and in doing so would invalidate CGI's special tax status On 7th Aug'13 I suggested that the way round that problem was to implement tenders instead, tenders for all parties including MMA. MMA's relative position could thereby remain constant. So far, even though I have sent a reminder (8th Sept'13), I have received no reply to this suggestion. I have sent a second reminder today.
skyship: Posted this elsewhere as it seems a good time to be back into CGI: ================================================================= We all have stockmarket favourites. One of mine, which I have played many times over the years, playing both swings in market trend and NAV discount, is Canadian & General Investments ("CGI"). Today I've today bought back in again @ 1023p. CGI has both a Toronto and an LSE listing. I like CGI because it gives me some currency diversification, obviously in this case to the Canadian $. Also, at the current level the NAV discount has risen to an exceptional level – 27.8%. The end Apr'12 NAV = $22.57 versus the share price of $16.30 Simply a return to the routine long-term discount of 20% would take the share price up to $18.05 for a 10.7% gain! CGI is also not a bad yielder. It pays $0.06 quarterly then a December Capital Gains distribution of $0.56; though this latter has averaged a higher $0.75 over the past 8years. So an effective yield currently of 4.9%. IMO CGI is currently on an anomalous discount and provides asset allocation diversification combined with very real prospects of above average share price performance as that discount closes. Performance: 10yr Compound Annual ROR inc. dividends: 10.2% The sector weightings of CGI's investment portfolio at market as of April 30, 2012 were as follows: Energy 23.2% Materials 20.9% Financials 19.6% Consumer Discretionary 10.2% Information Technology 9.7% Industrials 8.8% Telecommunication Services 3.2% Utilities 2.9% Cash & Cash Equivalents 1.2% Consumer Staples 0.6% The top ten investments which comprised 33.3% of the investment portfolio at market as of April 30, 2012 were as follows: Labrador Iron Ore Royalty Corporation 4.4 SXC Health Solutions Corp. 4.3 Enbridge Inc. 3.6 Brookfield Canada Office Properties 3.3 Apple Inc. 3.3 Franco-Nevada Corporation 3.3 Dollarama Inc. 3.2 BMTC Group Inc. 3.0 Bank of Montreal 2.6 Pacific Rubiales Energy Corp. 2.3
