EDINBURGH DRAGON PERFORMS WELL IN VOLATILE CONDITIONS

Edinburgh Dragon Trust, the FTSE 250 Asian investment trust, has seen its net asset value (NAV) outperform its benchmark in the first half despite volatile conditions in equity markets.

The group, whose objective is long-term capital growth through investment in the Far East (excluding Japan and Australasia), said that NAV rose 8.7% in sterling terms on a total return basis in the six months to February 29th, compared with the 7.4% rise for the MSCI All Country Asia (excluding Japan) Index. "Good stock selection", notably in Hong Kong and China, drove the outperformance, the group said.

The firm's share price, which rose from 230p to 252.6p during the period, was trading at a 6.4% discount to NAV, narrower than the 8.5% at the start of the period.

"Although Asia remains vulnerable to the uncertain global economic and market conditions, its dependence on external demand will gradually decrease over the longer term as domestic consumption and investment continues to rise. The region's economic fundamentals remain robust with healthy company balance sheets, good corporate earnings and valuations remain reasonable," the company said.

The Eurozone debt crisis and 'hard-landing' concerns in China fuelled a sell-off at the start of the company's first half, but were followed by a rebound that last till the period-end "thanks to continued central bank support which eased contagion fears." US economic data and the Federal Reserve's low-rate pledge also helped sentiment, the group said.

The company revenue account recorded a deficit on ordinary activities after taxation of £807,000 (-0.41p per share) compared with a return of £115,000 (0.06p per share) in the first half last year, due to the interest on the 3.5% cumulative unsecured loan stock 2018 being charged to the revenue account.

However, the company assured that the majority of its portfolio income is accounted for in the second half and it anticipated making a positive revenue return for the full year.



P.S.

Notice at the graph Aberdeen New Dawn outperforming EFM, I wonder how long that will be.

My view this is the best Investment Trust in Asia.
Aberdeen New Dawn track record is good but now I prefer EFM.
Both trusts have similar top 10 holdings.

It will soon be time to revisit EFM 's Dragon trust,
audited! NAV IS 172P ( 15TH Nov) share price is around 144.5 - a hefty discount. Also the share has shed 30p recently. Watch for an entry point in coming days and weeks

JP Morgan this week considers that after any weak period ( ie now!) the places to be in 2008 are
Thailand Hong Kong Malaysia and China.

Compared with TEM ( Templeton) there should be little exposure to Taiwan and Korea ( both are exposed to a US downtirn as key supplier countries)
however the countries mentioned above should return 16-20% gains in spite of a good 2007 .

NAV reportedas 167p.... a discount of over 18% to the share price.
There is value here.

Plot thickens at Hansard

Public relations outfit Hansard shot up 2.25p, or 22 per cent, to 12.5p after saying it was in talks with one of its clients, stockbroker Sky Capital, that may lead to an offer for the group.

Only a fortnight beforehand Hansard had pulled out of takeover talks with another Aim company, NWD. Sky itself recently acquired former licensed share dealer Everett Financial Management.
