spectoacc: @flyfisher - been waiting more than long enough already! Don't know what's stopping them going further. Bear in mind it was back in April when they suggested they take over running it down, with a bonus of 10% of anything over 80p. We're now in November, tho in early September CRS said: "The Fund believes that the scale of share price discount has not been addressed by the board of Allied Minds and therefore intends to take appropriate action. " Again - now November, tho I accept they've only recently gone over the 10% threshold. Also hadn't realised how rarely CRS go down the EGM route - twice in 10 years apparently. But good luck getting the boneheads at ALM to listen (I'm very long ALM, fortunately not at £7). (As an aside - despite everything having been passed, no word yet on the ALM distribution).
carcosa: 16% decline in the share price as a consequence of the SFO enquiries related to South Sudan. These things can take a very long time to resolve (the merits of which often ignore what goes on in the real world, but that's another story...). Companies now have a strategy for dealing with such things which usually goes along the lines of 'sorry, will not do it again, the people involved have already left the company, have assisted SFO in every way possible, put in new policies and procedures and oh by the way management have also changed'. Whatever the fine, if there is one, will be treated as a one-off exceptional. Given that DLAR management have recently said they are '..committed to the highest standards of governance...' then this plays into CRS aims very well indeed. All in all this is positive for CRS activism.
quepassa: or maybe the market might think that the value of some of the portfolio holdings may go down further. good luck. hope it works. personally i remain unimpressed by the recent share price performance and particularly by their seeming lack of clout as an activist investor. it is clear that their share buy-back programme has not stopped the recent slide in share price and one can but wonder to oneself how much further the share price may have fallen without such a programme. all imo. dyor. qp
hpcg: Share price very slow to react to the LEAF news, and I guess I know why now - it isn't exactly a closely followed stock!
gary38: I didnt say Trader Richard Bernstein of Crystal Amber should not SELL INTO EVERY RISE , which he has been doing since trading HUR shares for over 4 years,l am only giving a reason why the share price is not rising to its true value so those new to the board can understand what effect a big trader like Richard Bernstein can have on a share price.I would not again invest in a company that had traders like Richard Bernstein involved because l have seen the effect he has had on Hurricane energy share price and the company.Richard Bernstein states that he sells into share price rises as a matter of trading style.
quepassa: Without its ongoing share buyback program and frequency thereof, one can but wonder to oneself whether the share price would be much lower in this unfriendly market where small-caps are getting pounded. The November NAV figures will be out soon. But of course the market has succumbed to further falls since then. Good Luck all. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
quepassa: I am surprised that this share price hasn't fallen given the recent poor performance of some of their holdings like Cenkos and De La Rue. I guess that their holdings in Cenkos are increasingly under water. Watch out below? ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
carcosa: QP, I don't see anything exotic in CRS at all! ~10% discount is relatively unusual for CRS based on historic data. FFX being up 4% today makes a small impact on overall NAV. My point is that in aggregate with the other major shareholdings which have notably increased, the CRS share price has actually marginally declined giving rise for the 9% discount. Not sure why you picked out FFX when HUR is 28.6% of the fund NAV. Also it should be noted CRS still have substantial warrants over HUR shares which has the potential to add ot the NAV when exercised. CRS is high risk only in that it is a concentrated (but diversified) portfolio and that is the intent of the fund. You seem to have a negative attitude to CRS. I've been successfully trading them since 2016 with 'spare cash'. Have today bought back into the company. Lets wait and see where this is by year's end!
carcosa: Those shares you mentioned have been in the portfolio for a while, especially Woodford's. They are activist investors and almost be definition value investors. I say 'almost' because Hurricane Energy was (is) particularly speculative at the time of their initial investment. Personally I have bought shares in CRS as a short term hold when the discount to NAV is relatively large and Hurricane share price was/had moved ahead considerably. However best you keep track of the NAV yourself and keep up with CRS related RNS's as most (all?) NAV's are calculated throughout the year using their year end holdings which vary considerably by year's end. Alternatively holding on, directly, to one or two of the individual share(s) in their portfolio is a useful strategy if you want to keep track of specific company performance.
peterbill: hxxp:// The activist fund managers of AIM-listed Crystal Amber (CRS) have purchased £150,000 of shares in the UK smaller companies investment trust after a widening in their discount to net asset value (NAV). An announcement to the stock exchange shows Crystal Amber Asset Management purchased 75,000 at £2 each on 11 May. Final results posted in September showed the managers owned just under 4 million shares representing a 4.05% stake in the trust. This is separate from the share buyback scheme the £213 million trust has in place. Since the company’s interim results in March, the fund has repurchased 275,000 shares for an average price of 195.7p and a total of £539,750. The company, whose main shareholders include fund managers Mark Barnett and Neil Woodford, has been clear about its plans to try and maintain a low discount. In the interim results, chairman Christopher Waldron, who also chairs the under-fire Rangere Direct Lending (RDL), said the share buyback programme has ‘continued and contributed to maintaining a low average discount to net asset value (NAV) of 1.8% over the [six months to 31 December]’. However, that discount has widened this year to its current position of 8.5%, above its average for the past six months of 2.1%, according to Numis Securities data. Part of the problem could be the 6.7% fall in the NAV witnessed in the half-year results despite a successful partial exit from marinas company Sutton Harbour (SUH) that earned it £900,000. It also saw positive contributions from online currency business FairFX (FFX), and cyber security firm NCC (NCC). However, the trust said it was still working with Hurricane Energy (HUR) to appoint a ‘credible chairman’ following problems with the oil explorer that operates in the seas west of the Shetland Isles. Crystal Amber saw a slump in its share price after Hurricane, its largest holding, ran into problems. Hurricane’s share price nearly halved within two months on the back of what the trust said at the time was ‘poor handling’ of a warrant issue and comments by the oil explorer’s management team about funding and delivering an ‘early production system’.
