boystown: Master Investor - Nick Sudbury says: Edinburgh Investment Trust’s first full year’s results under new manager James De Uphaugh show clear outperformance and a narrowing of the discount. Edinburgh Investment Trust (LON:EDIN) had struggled for years under Invesco’s Mark Barnett, so it was no great surprise when the board appointed Majedie’s James De Uphaugh to take over last March. It was fortunate timing with the transition period coinciding with the onset of the pandemic. In its final results for the year to 31 March, the UK equity income fund made a NAV total return of 34.8%, which was well ahead of the 26.7% recorded by the FTSE All-Share as markets recovered from their March 2020 lows. The share price return was even stronger at 46.4% due to the narrowing of the discount. Turnover was much higher than normal at 39% as the manager re-positioned the portfolio and reacted to the rapidly changing events during the year. Significant additions included Standard Chartered and Acsential, while legacy holdings in Glaxo, Legal & General and Barrick Gold were sold or reduced to increase the pro-cyclical tilt following the development of the first vaccine last November. Plenty of upside potential De Uphaugh believes that the UK is rich in stocks that are exceptionally well-placed both operationally and in valuation terms. In order to take advantage he uses a flexible total return approach with the concentrated 50-stock portfolio consisting of a mix of growth, value and recovery names. Despite the recent strong performance, many British companies continue to trade at a discount to their international peers. It is possible that the successful vaccine rollout and the fact that Brexit is now behind us could enable the valuation gap to close, but the focus continues to be on fundamental research with the aim of identifying the stocks with the greatest upside potential. Many of the largest positions are regarded as leaders in their fields and are likely to emerge from the crisis stronger. In order to protect capital, the manager considers the potential downside risk for each holding and scales the level of investment accordingly. New starting point for the dividend Lots of UK companies reduced their dividends during the pandemic and because of this the board decided to rebase the fund’s underlying distribution to 24 pence per share, a level from which it should be able to achieve sustainable growth ahead of inflation. This gives the shares a prospective yield of 3.75%, which is marginally below the four percent average from the UK equity income sector. A special dividend of 4.65 pence has also been declared in respect of the year ended 31 March. It will be paid from the revenue reserves with the ex-div date being 24 June and will maintain the annual income in line with the previous year’s so as to protect investors. A 12-month period is too short to properly assess the performance of the new manager, but it is reassuring to see that the fund has continued to outpace the index since the end of its financial year. The broker Investec has recently issued a buy recommendation with the shares available on a 4.5% discount to NAV.
chc15: Ex div today, holding up well. Any price predictions for end year?
ec2: The effective double discount relates firstly to the shares in the portfolio which are mostly good quality value stocks that IMO can be considered cheap and at a discount to their longer term intrinsic value. The second discount is that of the EDIN share price to NAV. The NAV discount has in fact narrowed quite a bit of late, probably down to the new manager outperforming his benchmark over the last year since taking over. If he can continue to build out a good track record, I can see the discount narrowing further and even more so if the UK market in general re-rates. This combined effect would give continued double upward benefit to the share price. The shares and the market may have got a bit ahead of themselves in the last day or so, so I put a little bit of cheap and crude downside protection on yesterday, but will take off if I see continuing upward momentum which is appearing to be the case. EDIN is my largest position having averaged in over the last year whenever the share price was below 450p coupled with at the same time the NAV discount being over 10%.
bluemango: Interesting Goldpig, thank you. My equivalent list (from largest down) is PEY, MRCH, EDIN, SLPE, SHRS, TMPL, DIG. Note PEY and SLPE are private equity trusts. Apart from other reasons, it avoids the issue of duplicated underlying holdings when owning multiple ITs. Yield on cost for PEY is 7.2%. Probably all will be 'hold forevers'.
goldpiguk: Hi heialex1, With many income investment trusts at or near NAV, EDIN still looks an attractive buy. It is my largest ISA holding (15,000 shares) and I am fully invested here. The share price still suffers a little from negative sentiment following the sacking of the previous managers, and Majedie have yet to establish a proven track record at EDIN. The refinancing of the debenture in the next few months should help sentiment, giving annual savings of c.£5 million (from memory), and I would expect the discount to narrow substantially over the next year. Today I have made a small initial investment in Murray International (MYI), mainly to broaden my IT,ISA portfolio, rather than as a great buying opportunity. This is the first time I have bought an IT above NAV. IMO many IT's are currently looking a little over bought, but am happy to average in to new holdings and possibly build smaller positions in several IT's. These IT investments are intended to be held for many years and are not purchased for trading purposes. EDIN is an attractive long term hold. My portfolio of IT's is currently, (from largest to smallest by value): EDIN, DIG, MRCH, AAIF, HFEL, MYI, Goldpig
bluemango: My thanks to GoldPig for highlighting EDIN earlier this year and encouraging a closer look. Now 14% up on my average purchase price over several tranches, with a decent income stream.
topvest: While it is still early days, it is encouraging to have got off to a positive start. The NAV (on a total returns with dividends reinvested basis) per share over the six months under review has risen by 7.8%. This compares with a rise in the Company’s benchmark, the FTSE All-Share Index, of 7.0%.
gateside: Cheers have added IVI to my watch list.I'm OK with these trusts having exposure to Financials, as I sold my Banks & Insurance shares at the beginning of the year. And see Investment Trusts as a way of adding a safer way of having limited exposure to Financials. Also bought a handful of MYI in the summer too. Hopefully I have bought MYI and MRCH at knockdown prices and am looking for a couple of other Trusts to add a bit of extra diversification.EDIN and IVI might fit the bill.
goldpiguk: Hi, Last week when the UK banks stopped their dividend payments, I sold all my ISA held bank shares and later in the week all individual company shares holdings. Today there are just five IT's in my ISA. I have been watching EDIN closely over the last few months and I like the longer term outlook here; the chunky dividend reserves, the discount to NAV, the change of trust managers and particularly the high interest bond that matures in September 2022, which EDIN should be able to replace with much less expensive arrangements. This should help underpin the dividend for the next 2-3 years. Dividend income is key to my ISA portfolio. In what is now a very challenging investment environment EDIN should provide some income stability. I had intended to start building a position gradually with a target holding c.10,000 over a 1-2 year period. Because of the speed at which events have unfolded I now hold 14,500 EDIN shares with a total target holding of 15,000-20,000 shares. Although the capital value of my ISA has decined from c.£240,000 at its peek to c.£170,000 today, income generated this year should total £11,000-£12,000. That is an awful lot better than things looked this time last week. Goldpig My ISA holdings are now MRCH, DIG, EDIN (new), HFEL, AAIF(new)
