c29110: ssue of Equity. What does this mean exactly???? Cty keep issuing more and more shares. The most recent on the 17th June 2022 where they released another 470k shares. In March 2009 there were around 207 million cty shares but now there are 458 million. I thought investment trusts only had a certain amount of shares and that was it. Are cty share holders being diluted or have I got the wrong end of the stick? Will be very grateful if someone could please explain this.
north sea boy: It has certainly well exceeded my expectations, and fully covered by revenue. This has been a brilliant performance from CTY over the past 2 years.
bareknee: Turned out to be 5.0p in the end, with the RNS stating " .... This would make a total dividend for the year to 30 June 2022 of 19.60p per share, an increase of 2.6% on the previous year and the Company's 56th consecutive annual increase. The 19.60p dividend for the year to 30 June 2022 is expected, based on our current projections for the revenue account, to be fully covered by earnings with a surplus carried to the revenue reserve." Nice to see the reserves likely to be topped up.
tim 3: Yes a solid performer if ever there were one and if you bought after the covid drop you would probably be set for life at that price!Probably wouldn't fit in an ethical portfolio though lol !
dissentingvoices: QUARTERLY DIVIDEND UPDATE Interim Dividend 4.80p per share Ex Dividend Date 27/01/2022 Payment Due 28/02/2022
thamestrader: II had this to say....... QuotedData highlights the fact that Finsbury Growth & Income Ord FGT and City of London Ord CTY trust, one of the three on a premium, are not only the largest trusts in the sector but the ones pulling in new business: CTY issued more than £106 million of new shares in the 12 months to end June 2021. Yet CTY’s long-term figures lag most trusts at just 3.9% per year over the past five years. Only two trusts, Temple Bar Ord TMPL and Edinburgh Investment Ord EDIN, returned less, and TMPL’s performance has picked up markedly since a managerial change last year. In contrast, FGT has returned more than 9% a year over that five-year time frame. It begs the question of why investors persistently return to CTY. James Carthew of QuotedData points to its status as an Association of Investment Companies' (AIC) dividend hero with 55 years of unbroken dividend growth. “CTY gets a lot of attention for leading the dividend hero table,” he explains. “Additionally, manager Job Curtis has a great reputation. It’s also large, and I think there’s a tendency for people to associate size with success and solidity.” Nonetheless, the data suggests there may be stronger candidates for anyone looking at the sector’s capacity to deliver steady total returns and reliable income streams through difficult times, and keen to capitalise on these surprisingly sticky discounts of up to 9%. “Why not pick up a bargain if you can?” Carthew asks. QuotedData ranked the UK equity income trusts from 1 to 22 (where 1 is highest) on each of six measures: yield, five-year NAV total returns, five-year dividend growth, discount, size and number of years’ consecutive dividend growth. A simple overall ranking was calculated by simply adding the six numbers together for each trust, so the one with the smallest total tops the table. (CTY came 8th in the table, LWDB came top).
speedsgh: Dividend Declaration - HTTPS:// A third interim dividend of 4.80p per ordinary share of 25p, in respect of the year ending 30 June 2021 will be paid on 28 May 2021 to holders registered at the close of business on 30 April 2021. The Company's shares will go ex-dividend on 29 April 2021. The Board intends to declare a fourth interim dividend of 4.80p per share for the year to 30 June 2021. The fourth interim dividend will be declared in July 2021. This would make a total dividend for the year to 30 June 2021 of 19.10p per share, an increase of 0.5% on the previous year and the Company's 55th consecutive annual increase.
ttg100: City of London Investment Trust Underperforms Benchmark In Half Year Fri, 19th Feb 2021 09:39 (Alliance News) - City of London Investment Trust PLC said Friday it underperformed its benchmark in the first half of its financial year, blaming the underperformance on negative stock selection. For the six months ended December 31, the investment trust's net asset value total return was 6.9%, compared to the FTSE All-Share Index which returned 9.3%. City of London Investment's net asset value per share as at December 31 was 357.4 pence, up from 344.0p at the end of June. The trust's share price at the end of December was 370.5p, reflecting a 3.7% premium to net asset value. The stock was trading 0.4% higher at 359.00p each on Friday morning in London. City of London said the UK equity market fell slightly over the first four months of the fist half, with the outlook uncertain for many companies due to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, a rally took place in the final two months on positive vaccine news. The company blamed its performance on negative stock selection, noting the biggest detractor was not holding equity investment instruments - especially Scottish Mortgage Investment Trust PLC - followed by being underweight in travel & leisure, including not holding Flutter Entertainment PLC. It noted it was also hurt by its above-average exposure to gas, water & multi-utilities. In addition, some of its portfolio's more defensive holdings were underperformers, such as food manufacturer Nestle SA, US telecommunications operator Verizon Communications Inc and business publisher & events firm RELX PLC. Looking ahead, Chair Laurie Magnus said: "The roll-out of three vaccines against the Covid-19 virus is very encouraging and provides "light at the end of the tunnel". It is unlikely, however, that there will be a smooth path to herd immunity for the UK or globally given current limitations to the supply of the vaccines and the apparent scope for the virus to mutate. Governments and central banks have responded to the enforced lockdowns of economies as a result of Covid-19 with unprecedented fiscal and monetary easing. It is likely that, after a contraction in the first quarter of 2021, the UK and global economy will recover sharply over the rest of the year, with consumer demand bolstered by running down the high savings ratios accumulated while economic activity was restricted." Turning to dividends, City of London said it expects to be able to increase the payout after having declared two interim dividends of 4.75p each during its financial year, noting the quarterly rate will be reviewed before the third interim dividend is declared in March.

damanko: Great comment AM. On a stress scale of 1 to 10, I'd say buy to let is 7 to 8, CTY around 1+/-... I'm sure you're astute enough to be aware that capital gains in CTY is a long term affair, in fact the share price is back to a level last seen in 2013. Selling is all about timing. I'm 130%+ up since buying CTY at various times over the years, though that's probably because to date I've always reinvested, gradually reducing the price paid. As Dr Spock would say, "Go well and...". PS: I have some damp stains in my bathroom, can you send somebody to sort it ASAP?
bothdavis: very frustrating how long it is taking to regain its past share price
