damanko: Boozey, "The dividend is very modest". Really? Compared to current interest rates?. A strange comment in my view, given what is happening with Bank & Building Society accounts. In any case, and leaving aside the more or less non existent income from putting money into a Bank or BS, my yield in CTY is hovering around the 20% mark. Not a boast, simply a fact. I guess it depends how long ago an investment in CTY was made. Go well etc, I reckon long term holders, or current investors with a long term view on this IT will do okay, as long as they ignore the blips, ignore market gyrations, and of course reinvest the dividends until such time that they require a cash income. panshanger: Excellent point, one that the press seems to ignore, and always has, the Weekend money sections relentlessly recommend Unit Trusts, with far higher costs, and often mediocre performance by comparison. bothdavis: Great post, concise, straight to the point. Though I wonder just how many people (in the big picture) are aware of what you've posted. To put some of this City of London IT stuff into context: This thread on ADVFN was started over 12 years ago. And look at the number of posts... Enough said. d.
ukneonboy: Glad to see that the company is being proactive during this downturn, by buying-in their own shares, whilst the share price is down. Questor in the Daily Telegraph is apparently a big fan of City of London I.T. too.
panshanger1: Added here today and over at MRCHLooking for reliable dividend income at reasonable price
erogenous jones: Seems that you have picked more that your fair share of lemons, zac0_4. Of the investment trusts that I have, ATR up 4%, ATT up 45%, FEV pretty well unchanged, HEAL up 21%, MTE up 12%, MTU down 28%, PEY down 13%, TEM down 3.5%, THRG down 19.5% and UEM down 22%. I have recently gifted my holdings in Baillie Gifford Japanese Smaller Companies, Herald Investment Trust, Aubrey Global Emerging Markets, Polar Global Insurance, Jupiter China and Polar Global Technology to a discretionary settlement for my children as part of my IHT planning. My best performing individual share this year is Adyen up over 100%, followed by Nvidia up 80%. Overall, I am up this year by a slender 0.01%, but it includes some howlers that are off 60% (Saga) and Vistry (off 46%) The money this year has been made in healthcare, computer chips and technology. They are going to be the drivers for the future whether we like it or not, but sectors that are weak at the moment include leisure, travel and energy. They might the the ones in the future when a vaccine has been developed, tolerated and widely available. I doubt it will be in the timeframe suggested by the imbecile at the helm of USA but might be at the point of release this time next year. Whenever there is a major upset in markets, fortunes are made and lost. In Feb this year I was up 5%. Within 3 weeks my portfolio had dropped the equivalent of 17 years salary. No point in selling to crystalise a paper loss, simply sweat things out. Investment trusts will tend to do better than funds, are unlikley to suffer with investors withdrawing cash. Might not like the price for the shares, but you can deal in them.
damanko: Interesting post... on a very underused thread. Pan, what's your definition of a few? Nobody knows your real name/identity, so if you're up for it, be honest... Over the years I've sold most of my investments once they achieved a certain profit margin, and put the proceeds into the bank & CTY, more or less 50/50. In fact CTY is now the only holding in my SIPP. Always reinvested, since the 80's. Good luck with your investment, it won't shock or amaze you on any given day, but should gently rise over the months and years. In my opinion it's one of the best barometers of the UK's financial health. Long may that continue, I need only to look at the share price to see how the FTSE 100 & 250 have performed any weekday of the year. Regards. d.
damanko: Quite possibly. Though having been an investor in CTY for 25+ years, and always reinvesting the dividends I'm not overly worried. Sure, bad things happen, they always will. Though having survived '87, the late 90's currency crisis, the dot com boom a couple of years later, the Gulf Wars of '91 and 2003, the credit crisis of 2008/9 etc etc… My opinion is that your money is reasonably safe Chris. If I was a young buck I'd consider putting some money into City of London right now. However I ain't a young buck any longer, plus my yield on my original is well north of 20%. Go well, none of us should panic at this time. d
johnwig: CTY ex dividend today
killing_time: Hi Tim 3. When we had brexit about a year and a half ago I bought a lot of funds that got hammered that day. I bought two funds to make my core holding, CTY and Edinburgh trust. Today I am about 15% up on CTY and only about 3% up on EDIN not including dividends which CTY are greater. I view CTY as solid with a good dividend but over the last 6 months EDIN has been shocking. CTY is very popular with Hargreaves Lansdown customers drip feeding money in as its always near the top of the favourite funds customers buy, which im guessing is because of the good dividend and steady performance which is why its now my biggest fund. KT. PS: don't talk to me about EDIN. :-(
north sea boy: Hi Tim 3. I bought my holding in November 2016 as part of a portfolio I created from my 25% tax free pension drawdown. So essentially I bought these primarily for income to supplement my private pension. So far these have been a steady performer that has delivered me 4.375% annual income from my initial purchase price, and circa 10% in capital growth on top of that, although I have absolutely no intention on selling them for foreseeable future. The price does not increase as dramatically as other investment trusts (e.g FRCL or EIT) as it pays out a higher proportion of profit as a regular (as so far dependable) dividend. Hope this helps? North Sea Boy
damanko: Tim, You're right - it is a little toppy, with good reason. I.E. because it has an excellent long term record, and always pays a decent dividend. Unless the market goes into freefall like 2008/9, CTY's performance is likely to remain on a gentle upward trend, with steady dividend uplifts. Thinking long term? Here's an example: I bought CTY in 1994, and still hold. By always reinvesting the dividend, my 'buying price' is now a little under 60 pence per share. If you do go ahead and buy now, happen you can post in 2040 and let us know how your investment has performed... Good luck & regards D
