spectoacc You mentioned MVI and UTL. MVI looked interesting until I read they don't expect to make any disposals for 5 years! Regarding UTL I don't like the ZDPs, I like things simple. Will give both a miss. Did some dummy trades. EGL is now 3% cheaper than SHRS compared to NAV with similar yields. Previously I had them neck and neck. EGL not flavour of this month. I wonder if its because its a newly formed trust and is off the radar.

It could be BTEM. They are value investors looking for changes in businesses. They seem to have taken the cash after the reorganisation and probably can't see any more restructuring for now. They are left with a small holding in EGL and they say they want a more focused portfolio, so it seems likely they would want out.

Definetly someone unloading but why would it be a worry? The stock is cheap and I'm buying shares not placing a spread-bet with a stop loss.

Good luck; still sitting on hands here. Worries me when MMs happy to sell large quantities (loads of buys yesterday) at below mid. A few more director buys at these lower levels wouldn't come amiss.

NAV is 131p, up 2p from yesterday, according to citywire Picked up a few more at 113.45. Discount 13.5% and yield 5.6%. Not too bad. Big director buys last week at 121p! Main European holdings all up again this morning by about 0.5% so expecting NAV to go up.

I did a quick check of the share prices of the top ten holdings which are about 45% of the NAV. hxxp://citywire.co.uk/money/investment-trusts/investment-trust-factsheet.aspx?FundID=3949 On average about 1% up I'd say so today's 1%-2% drop looks unwarranted. FTSE up as well. This trust is not flavour of the month!

A 1.6p quarterly dividend to be paid in early december. No announcement yet as to when it goes ex-divi.

I've taken some more at 113.5p. Based mainly on the size of the director buys at 121p last week. Some big purchases there including a 200,000 buy

I'm in a few EGL but there's plenty cheaper, both on yield and discount. If you want both (and plenty of risk) - MVI or UTL. I like EGL for the utility exposure but fair to say the "bond-like" trade may be over.

It looks too inexpensive to me compared to the rest of the investment trust sector. 10% discount and 5.5% yield. Not many will beat that.

129p according to Citywire....still too expensive.

I'm toying buying more with FTSE up 80 points and this unchanged. I'm a bit wary of the NAV though, seems to have a mind of its own! Anyone care to guess the current NAV. I'm thinking it fell on Friday but should have clawed that back today so NAV somewhere over 130p?

Yes NAV was 142p a week ago so its down 7% for whatever reason.. The $ weakening since Trump election has not helped either. I think a 15% discount is excessive with a 5.5% yield. The discount is not fixed of course but you often see income trusts trading at a small discount of 5% or even a premium.

Fair point, was a big NAV drop and didn't include yesterday's further rout of bond proxies (inc utilities). I'm still looking to buy more mind - but lower than here or it wouldn't be much of an avg.

It appears to be getting cheaper by the day but is, infact, getting more expensive as the discount is narrowing! I wouldn't buy it on anything less than a 15 discount.

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.
