One or two decent buys yesterday that I reckon might be more director purchases - time will tell. When the directors and you are spent-up, then I'll buy on the dip ;) :))

These shares are cheap this morning. 120p to buy despite showing 118-125. Got some.

Another director buy (from yesterday), he's averaging down a little further. To be fair, isn't helping the price much. Want it a little lower before I buy again.

Gant - do I understand that you said you wanted to accept the EGL and EFR for your ECWO, but Alliance gave you all cash instead?

I went for max cash and finished up about even , having been well down earlier this year. Did a bit better in my ISA as Alliance gave me cash for all I applied for - not just the percentage - no idea why. Bought some back at 121P with a good yield promised without the illiquids. Just sold my EFR and moving on.

Has anyone been able to work out, or been given the "factor", or percentage figures to calculate their effective cost price of EGL and EFR, based on what they paid for ECWO - especially if they took part cash? My own Broker says 91.87% for EGL and (hence) 8.13% for EFR, but I did not take any cash. Thanks. Edit - oh well, let me put it this way - is anybody here making a profit, or loss on EGL or ERF? If so - how did you work that out?

The spread not as bad as it looks. Bid price is 120.5p , ask price is 125p. Still bad though!

Director thinks so - 200k purchase at 120.36p reported after close yesterday.

Now at a 15% discount and a 5.3% yield. You'll struggle to find better than that in this market.

That's odd - wonder why they'd deactivate it. If it was tradeable previously on ST then my theory about more potential sellers doesn't apply. Have sent them a message.

Yes, saw that EGL not tradable today on selftrade but it was last friday. Very strange.

Looks like someone sold 200k at 120; a few smaller sells at 117p too. Just had a look at Selftrade to see what the RSPs offering, and ST still not even got it on their system. So anyone in EGL from ECWO days at Selftrade won't have been able to sell yet, so could still be a few sellers out there to come. Yet to buy EGL - wary of the indebted utilities as a LTBH, & EGL seems to have a piece of most of them - but everything has its price. Back to 110p would be nice but no doubt I'll buy in higher. EGL seems to be continuing ECWO's general volatility. Edit - bought a few. Patience didn't last long! Will look to buy more lower but not any higher I reckon.

EGL share price dropping back to the reconstruction price while the NAV continues to rise. Strange.

Specto - I saw them both on Netflix. My elder son is a film addict and the subscription is one of his contributions to staying under my roof. The rare occassions I here anything about commodities trading, especially pork belly futures I am reminded of Trading Places - hilarious!. I shall seek out Boiler Room, I think we all have an AIM horror story or two!

@Larmor - read the book of The Big Short, not seen Margin Call - will add it to the list. "Trading Places" usually gets a mention but my favourite is Boiler Room - frequently reminds me of AIM!

Specto - I'll have a more detailed look at EFR over the weekend. I am tempted and luckily this is money I can "afford to lose" in common parlance. Strange phrase as who can afford to lose money? Direct investment is more a hobby for me (and hobbies cost money - right?) with my pension funds run by my (expensive) IFA Saw Brewsters Millions a long time ago, very funny as were his films with Gene Wilder another talent lost. My "succesful" trading feels more like The Big Short or Margin Call at times. I don't know if you have seen either but they are two different takes on the 2008 debacle but I enjoyed them both.

@Praipus - DVWA/DVW not one I've looked at before, but I note the offer is agreed, has 40% irrevocables, and is structured as a Scheme of Arrangement (75% hurdle). I'm not reading all 12 pages to find out break fee etc but...

Anyone notice DVW under offer from Ancala (who?) IMHO offer should be double based on enterprise value, asset growth and dividend stream....may not be too late chase...IMO

Yes! Played by the late, great Richard Pryor, coincidentally the star of another fantastic money-related film - Brewster's Millions. I've had trading days where I felt like Brewster in reverse. Most of the investment trust threads on ADVFN seem pretty good (some very good) for research, debate, and arguing both sides civilly. In stark contrast to single-co threads :) I note EFR bid being offered by the RSPs is the highest yet - 39p - with plenty of small sellers taking advantage, probably because last night's NAV announcement showed yet another fall, so now down 10% in 3 weeks whilst £ has gone other way. Personally, I've bought a lot more EFR recently and am taking on the risk of Lonestar coming a cropper. Can see an argument for just spreadbetting the price of oil instead, but time will tell.

Specto thanks for the info and the link plus your posts on the other Ecofin thread. Both threads are quite civilised compared to others I read on ADVFN, including Nanoco (small stake) and Eden (no holding) Talking of 0.5 of a share, wasn't there a Superman film where the guy in payroll rounded everybody's salary down to the nearest dollar and syphoned off the difference making millions? Not an ideal investment strategy as he got busted in the end. Thanks once again Larmor

@Larmor - looks right, both to price paid out at and 724 EFR shares (technically 724.5 but selling 0.5 of a share would be even trickier) ;) Interesting article re Lonestar (75% of EFR) here - is a risk I'm taking on but can see why discount so large: http://seekingalpha.com/article/4001530-lonestar-resources-still-hilariously-undervalued

Specto thanks. I was thinking along those line as Barclays' commission would amount to around 5% on that amount. I was also contemplating buying more if the discount to NAV is encouraging and as you day they'll pay out eventually. BTW I was paid 135.54 per share for my modest 2898 shares plus I got 724 EFR. Could you or any other kind soul confirm that's correct? I'm too tired today to wade through the documentation and trust my own mathematical competence :)

@Larmor you could join everyone else & sell, been a lot of small sells going through! Personally I'd hold, they'll pay out eventually & is hardly worth the commission in selling.

Ditto wskill although I tendered 100% of my holding and got cash for the lot. Just got to check their calculations and price used, not that I don't trust them :) Now got to decide what to do with the miserable £200 odd's worth of realisation fund shares I got.
