I suspect Cazoo is the stub following the take private of Daily Mail. The Board haven’t covered themselves in glory for a long time. From the outside even I could see that the previous manager had gone wrong in his stock picking. At YE the NAV is the same as 2015 and the Trust is £200m smaller after buybacks. Chair stepping down is more tenure than any admission of, well, add your own word. But I do like what JDU has done and I keep adding when I see the portfolio and share price dips. Liontrust takeover of the manager promised a higher level of promotion but not happened yet. The rebased dividend won’t help Edin reissue shares at a premium which they aspire but they might trade close to NAV with 3 years of JDU outperformance of the All Share and a quieter macro background. One of my larger holdings.

Just taken a look at the Annual Report. Majedie seem to be performing as expected really; slightly above the benchmark. Not sure why they have £2m in Cazoo at the bottom end of the portfolio. Seems a bit odd for their "value style". I can't help thinking that the board could have kept the dividend flat again really, maybe with a special dividend again, as they have the reserves to do do. Lost opportunity now as the record has gone - will take 19 more years to get it back! I also think the Board should be making more of the 130+ year history. Again, a missed marketing opportunity. To be honest, I am not that impressed with the Board - they seem a bit light weight for such a historical institution.

Another purchase by James. Confidence returning to mkt, this has held up well. I have bought this, TMPL, MYL and 3i, all solid.

Nice to see an increased dividend, now 6.4p a quarter, translates to 4.1% yield if they maintained that level for all four payments - but surely there's a good prospect of a larger final in July (as in previous practice) to boost it still further.

Thanks for your contribution here, interesting tale and I think lots could benefit from selling poor companies and buying good ITs. My recent position here was started a year earlier when I felt Barnett was supporting some of Woodford's blue sky deals and his position and performance became untenable, and the discount opened up. I got some decent entry points and flagged a number of things to the Board though I'm sure that was incidental. I'm very impressed by James DeUpaugh and they've done a great job getting the NAV where it is. Sadly the discount which appeared under previous management is still with us but I'm hoping this will change. An improvement to UK sentiment and the takeover of Majedie by Liontrust may bring about more buyers than sellers. Also at its size Edin should be looking at a zero discount control policy.

Yes seems just ok, they should do something abt the discount, buy backs possibly.

Pleasing interims today. Continuing outperformance, this time 1.8pct. over the last 6 months. Trust seems overdue a re-rating as it trades on an over 8pct. discount to NAV compared to others in the UK Equity Income and Growth sector that are on sub 1pct. discounts eg. Merchants, City of London, Dunedin, JPM Claverhouse. The refinancing of the hugely expensive 100 mln. debenture down from 7.75% to average debt financing of 2.44% will also be further beneficial to performance going forward.

Yes saw that. NAV is going great guns. I own Majedie too. Worth a look. Almost 5% yield and same manager albeit invested in a range of their funds.

Also gives some MCX exposure which should help growth and they can hold a % in oversees equities.

Yes I agree, it is a pretty bog standard trust, but it does what it says on the tin, it gives you exposure to decent stocks at a discount with a steady dividend.

The way I view this IT, is that it gets you the better placed stocks in the FTSE-100, at a 10% discount and on a better yield than simply buying the index.
