We could do with a breather to let the NAV catch up. One problem is that gervais's parallel OEIC, the Miton UK Multi-Cap Income Fund, has been soft closed to new investment, so his retail fans have discovered DIVI.

Yes, though - with the NAV at 82p and at a low yield - it's now at the highest premium of any conventional income trust, let alone smaller company trusts that are almost all at a discount. There are good reasons for this, of course, given its unusually wide ranging remit - quite apart from the quality of the manager - so fingers crossed.

Diverse still going strong up 20% since my last comment in July/August also I see that Gervais Williams has placed a put on the portfolio in case of major sell off. Continue to buy at around 79p

I love this share. No bulletin board mania - just the steady drip drip of success.

Back on track. Good old Gervais. No autumn market sell-off this year? I thought the US debt mess may have sparked a 20% correction.

Company Information just announced today Diverse Investment Trust The Company holds a widely diversified list of 107 holdings. The largest 40 stocks in the portfolio are listed below. It will be noted that most holdings are around 1% of the portfolio. On occasions, when the risk/reward ratio appears particularly attractive, some holdings are purchased to take them up to around 1.5% of the portfolio. With differential share price moves, some of these holdings can move up to slightly larger percentages. However, the overall volatility of the portfolio has been well below other trusts in the UK Growth and Income sector. In part this is related to the wide diversification within the portfolio, and in part to the naturally lower volatility of higher income stocks, especially those with strong balance sheets. Over the year under review, the Company delivered a total return of 40.7%. Generally the Company was largely fully invested throughout the period, although the borrowing facility was not greatly used. There were two C share issues in the period and the new capital was typically invested in similar stocks to that of the original fund. Once at least 90% of the new capital had been invested, then the C share portfolio was merged with that of the parent. This process ensured that shareholders' returns were not diluted by the additional capital raised during the year. The Company launched on the Stock Exchange on 28 April 2011. Since that time, on a price basis, the FTSE All-Share Index has delivered a rise of 10.1%. The FTSE SmallCap Index (ex IC) rose by 23.9%, although the FTSE AIM All-Share fell by 20.8%. The price return on the Company in the period was 29.4%. Portfolio The portfolio is invested in a wide range of individual stocks that together offer the prospect of good and growing dividend income. Although there are some in FTSE 100 Index which we find attractive, they are fairly limited in number. For that reason the portfolio has only 6.3% of its capital invested in these stocks. There are a greater number in the FTSE 250 or MidCap Index and therefore the Company holds around 23.0% in this area of the market. Overall, around one-third of the portfolio is invested in the largest 350 stocks, which implies that around two-thirds is invested in the remaining universe of some 2,500 quoted stocks.

Thanks - I will have a look at those ones that I've not hear of. I agree, TIGT not that amazing, but it's a slow steady one and with dividends reinvested has been ok for me. FPEO quite a nice one as well, they changed to income and growth as opposed to mainly growth sometime last year. I must admit I don't know much about VCTs either but this BVT and also BDV (from the same company) have good yields fairly consistently. I only have a tiny holding but again dividends reinvested pay off.

Thanks Tiger. I guess there may be some slight differences if they change holdings, reduce / increase, buy/sell before the announcements are made in the RNS, but you are probably fairly accurate. Might explain the share price rise lately. It's only a couple of % of my total portfolio too but noticed it creeping up a fair bit lately. Out of interest, do you hold any other investment trusts? I like BIOG (biotech), TIGT, EDIN (in a child trust fund), FPEO, BVT (private equity).

I have the Divi portfolio of leading shares listed & each weighted in % of portfolio and look at the overall fluctating total price of the portfolio daily. You are correct that NAV is around 66p it has been like this for a few days, meanwhile the shares are up in value by about 7% over the last couple of weeks but the portfolio share price price has only slowly followed. I may be wrong so do your own research-I do think there is a lot more to come out of this share at the moment its less than 5% of my portfolio.

tiger - I thought that DIVI the portfolio value is the Net asset value, which is today 66.71. How do you make it 74 p? I'm not saying you are wrong, just interested to know how it's worked out. We are at a premium to the NAV at the moment.

The share price needs to catch up with the recent rise in the portfolio which I track share price now 69p should be nearer 74p very soon
