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.

amggts: I've taken a similar view with CTY. I'd prefer to allocate future profits towards this investment trust rather than add anoter buy to let to my property portfolio.
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?
amggts: I've added a few as well. I'd struggle to get the current cty yeild on a buy to let so i've taken a fairly chunky position. Cty will never phone me up in the middle of the night complaining their boiler doesnt work:~)
bothdavis: very frustrating how long it is taking to regain its past share price
ukneonboy: Just in case anybody was not aware - here is some useful dividend data Shares quoted "ex div" on 28-Jan-21 Dividend paid 26-Feb-21 Rate of dividend 4.75p per share
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.
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.
