spectoacc: She always talks a good game, but totally agree - performance from listing has been a shocker, at times approaching Woodford levels. However - only question that should concern buyers/holders now is - does DSM represent value here. I think it does. JM had a decent track record at VCTs before DSM, but DSM shareholders have paid her learning fees.
red ninja: Yes they've not done well, but they hit a bad time to launch the fund ie they bought with the market at a relative high and then it fell. If I buy a fund it's easy for me I can't shift the market even if I wanted, it's tougher for funds especially in the launch period to acquire a meaningful holding at a low price. 2020 has been a great time to launch a fund for example, bargain stocks galore and the market has roared for the right stocks. 2021 will be much tougher, the US markets appear highly overvalued and when the US sneezes we also catch a cold. Still DSM is recovering reasonably, continue the trend and her jobs secure, another period of bad performance and I guess she'll need to issue a cv. I wish her all the best.
red ninja: Mmm I think there is a certain lack of trust in DSM given the years of underperformance. I see in SWSC the general comment states :- "A year of living dangerously." No not 2020. Think 2021. The author thinks the US markets are very overpriced.
red ninja: SWSC made Volex one of it's naps for 2021 and I believe the Naked Trader has also, although don't subscribe to NT. From DSM December factsheet :- "With many strategic catalysts now implemented and much of the heavy lifting completed, we are confident going into 2021. Despite this, our portfolio companies and the company itself remain seriously undervalued and we are focused on driving positive sentiment through this year." Hopefully their correct in the above statement. hxxps://
red ninja: Well I think Braemar Shipping Services and Pennant share prices have both recovered to some degree since DSM exited. Doubtless some of their share price weakness was due to Downing selling out. Downing said it still rated Braemar Shipping Services and Pennant, but there was better investment opportunities elsewhere that is probably logical as a lot of good stocks have also crashed. Maybe they have the same rationale if they are selling out of Science In Sport. Yes Volex has been there one and only clear success of their long term holdings. I see SWSC has £4 target for Volex. I certainly think they will do well, but not sure how quickly they will get to £4. Hopefully Digital Box and Toe Holds 1-3 will impress with time.
red ninja: Yes DSM still buying, but others investor buying in. The market as a whole seems to be rising.
spectoacc: Thanks @RN - having thought about it, the gating could be a good thing - no selling pressure on the holdings now for a while, when there presumably had been before. Now, would DSM buy any of the co-holdings on the cheap I wonder.. We know they've got cash.
red ninja: Thanks for that SpectoAcc. It's not just DSM then that Downing haven't performed for. I am hopeful with DSM that they are turning it round although not helped by Covid. Time will tell.
red ninja: Mmm saw the 15k trade at 55.75p, but the extra 0.75p could be due to buying at 16:10. In the first 30 minutes or last 30 minutes they sometimes sting you with a higher price. The buyback seems to have given confidence to investors to buy and it looks like DSM have only purchased less than 100k of their own shares. Scheme will end on 2nd November 2020 so interesting to see how share price strength goes after that, RGD is also struggling due to the pandemic at around 20% of DSM (by secured loan note) IMO it casts a bit of a shadow over DSM.
red ninja: I wonder if we are close to the top of the range for the buyback given the limit for the DSM buying shares is just over 54p. Comment on new buy Digital Box in DSM September fact sheet :- "The company made one new investment in the month in DigitalBox, supporting the acquisition of The Tab media. DigitalBox owns other titles which earn revenues through advertising through which Digitalbox optimise revenues through their programmatic technology. We believe that Digitalbox can significantly improve The Tab’s subscriber and revenue KPIs and can continue to roll up the space with attractive and underoptimised titles purchased at attractive prices." hxxps://
