they need to sell off all their holdings and return the cash to shareholders
awful performance but least the dividend is ok
increasing the dividend by say 50% might have encourage the gap to close but that was never going to happen

the discount is technically larger than stated as they quote a mid price of 62.5p
yet for months the spread is 60-70p . should valued at bid imho
also not sure if nett assets are quoted at bid prices or mid prices.
the investment in art work appeared in the last accounts with no explanation of where it was purchased from or why it was bought yet they are supposed to be winding it down and art work is a long term investment.!!
i only have have a few share and it is not worth buying anymore unless the discount opens to say 50% or more because of the spread.
they could increase the dividend greatly as they are winding down and also leave the chance of a specialised fund taking it over as the deadline approaches
buying in now could give a good annualised return but will get better as we approach nov 18

winding up is pushing share price closer to net asset value.
i wonder if they will ditch the dividend this year?
more news in results i guess along with winding up so regular lumps sums to come over the next year hopefully
i never understand why they issued RNS after hours either

Announcement

Admission to Trading in London | Announced - 6 June 2011

El Oro Ltd ("El Oro" or the "Company") announces it has been admitted to trading on the Stock Exchange Electronic Trading System - quotes and crosses ("SETSqx") of the London Stock Exchange. SETSqx will allow the Company's securities to be viewed by the London investment community.

The admission to trading on SETSqx does not affect the listing of all of the Company's shares on the Channel Islands Stock Exchange.

The ticker for El Oro is ELX.

El Oro is a collective investment vehicle which holds discrete portfolios which are segmented and managed along different investment styles. The UK portfolio focuses on mature sectors with higher yields and the Guernsey portfolio holds stocks selected in pursuit of growth.

El Oro was formed from the restructuring of the El Oro Mining and Exploration Company plc to allow El Oro Ltd to be subject to a tax regime that puts it on a par with other investment vehicles such as unit and investment trusts.

Robin Parish, Chairman of El Oro, commented, "I am delighted that the London investment community will now be aware of El Oro, as the Channel Islands investment community continues to be."

It is a pity there is such a big spread on this stock.
Most of the shares are tightly held.
There are 12 holders and the total comes to more than 100%
Must be a few duplicate shareholdings.
http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=p_YcOU8NrRM5Kxz9xGGbVAw
The report in the Investors Chronicle today puts the shares on FAIRLY PRICED.at 330p
The net asset value per share is 693p a discount of 52%
a dividend yield of 4.2%.
In the portfolio last year they had some good investments.
On there web site does not show the Information for the current year.
I have held the stock on many occasions when they were split into two companies.
When they merged the official can't rember who it was stated the merger would narrow the spread.
Well it hasn't.

' assets at fair value were £81,588,816 equal
to 757p per stock unit, (31 December 2006: £77,167,354 equal to 712p per stock
unit).

Only one divi paid each year in the autumn.

They should be able to raise it yet again?

Usually a modest divi increase.

CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

Results for the period ended 31 December 2006

The Group profit before tax for the six months to 31 December 2006 was
#3,049,025 (six months to 31 December 2005: #7,180,828). Group net assets at 31
December 2006 under IFRS, taking all assets at fair value were #77,167,354 equal
to 712p per stock unit, (31 December 2005: #65,517,760 equal to 605p per stock
unit).

El Oro's team of heavy hitters, has been boosted by the bane of Mr. Flintoff,
and increased its score with the takeover of Hardys and Hanson by Greene King,
assisted by the ever-increasing value of other Brewery holdings, such as Adnams,
Fuller, Smith and Turner and Young's.

The middle-order batsmen have been piling on the runs in the Property sector,
with notable increases in the asset values of Daejan, Mountview and McKay
Securities. MP Evans have also thrived with their transition from Malaysia to
Indonesian Palm Oil production, whilst James Halstead continue to demonstrate
their flawless ability to produce non-slip results.

Hard on their heels and not to be outdone, Egdon have flourished with its
gas-storage project in the Isle of Wight. Amongst the precious metals, Troy's
reinforced team have expanded their reserves both in Brazil and Canada, and are
beginning to achieve belated recognition in the market. Hunting have soared
beyond the expectations of many, whilst the platinum producers and explorers
continue to flourish, upheld by a rising price due to catalytic converter and
fuel-cell demand.

The seemingly-insatiable demand from China and India for both metals and energy
has underpinned most metal prices, with stratospheric levels now reached in
nickel, and uranium, whilst copper continues to rise after a brief fall in
recent months. Within the last week, Lionore, in which in its earlier guise as
Francistown Mining and Exploration, El Oro was a founder shareholder, has agreed
a takeover by Xstrata. This has precipitated further advances in the nickel
sector, where the folly of Western Mining's dispersal of its nickel interests in
the Kambalda region has been the bounty of companies such as Mincor, Mirabella
and Minara. Adding Iron Ore, Molybdenum and Natural Gas, it is little wonder
that Perth property prices are now amongst the highest in Australia. Where
Australians are not discovering new riches beneath their bountiful land, they
are developing assets overseas. We were privileged to visit Albidon's nickel
mine in Zambia, and International Ferro Metals' Chrome project in South Africa.
We hold high expectations for both, despite South Africa's determination to
increase turnover of Porsche Cayenne Turbos amongst Black Empowerment partners.

In the longer term, and as already criticised by Mr. de Klerk, the selection of
personnel on racial, and in particular, black, criteria, can only damage a
sophisticated economy such as South Africa's. This is exacerbated by increasing
corruption, incompetence and anti-business sentiment, alongside the ever-present
violence, which makes us fearful for the future in that beautiful country,
particularly given its support for the wanton and tragic destruction of its
neighbour to the North. Sadly, however tempting the assets, we see little hope
of anything other than venality persisting in Zimbabwe. Ian Smith's hope,
expressed to us recently to 'see that brigand driven out' may be accomplished,
but the return of the halcyon days as the Jewel in the Crown of Africa are
perhaps gone for ever.

On the home front, the dismal days of this dreadful government draw slowly to a
close, with tax reimposed on the lowest level of earnings; newly-qualified
doctors denied jobs by a selection system of unbelievable stupidity totally
unsuited to the calibre and qualifications of the applicant; a dental system in
decay; an Hogarthian desire for Casinos bordering on depravity; the plaintiff
cries of cows culled by Death-dealing Defra for paper-work discrepancies
ringing in the ears of their uncompensated owners; the ongoing payments fiasco
at that same department preceding the promotion of its perpetrator onto the
world stage, where our sailors are seized and the means of redress has probably
been reduced beyond repair; an education system, where money has been poured
into the morass of the lowest 20%, whilst the leading academic institutions are
starved of resources, and the need for intellectual capital becomes, against
competition from China and India, ever more acute; the disgraceful and
disastrous starving of resources for the defence sector; the theft from the
Lottery of funds earmarked for Sport to finance the ever-escalating cost of the
Olympics; and the relentless extension of the State across ever greater areas of
society and employment, into every nook and cranny of human and spiritual
existence, typified, on the mundane level by the sprouting of congestion charge
cameras on their lofty poles, in the Brompton Road.

In the face of this accumulating crisis, the leaders of the opposition float
ever upwards in their beautiful balloon, on a diet of Juniper berries:" the
world's a nicer place in my beautiful balloon, it wears a nicer face in my
beautiful balloon, we'll search the clouds for a star to guide us": their
assault on the every-day expectations of ordinary citizens to fly to their own
holidays or homes, on deeply dubious environmental grounds, whilst continuing to
rule out tax or spending cuts, leaves little hope for any change of substance
from the tidal wave of expenditure, tax and regulation suffered for the past 10
years.

Outlook

The gloom outlined above is as nothing to the Sub-Prime crisis engulfing the
United States housing market, which has every possibility of spreading to the
Prime market itself. Indications that the French housing market is also
beginning to suffer, and that Spain is seriously over-valued, are matched by
remarks made by an increasing number that the UK Commercial property market is
now in 'a bubble' fuelled by vast inflows from the Pension and Hedge Fund
sectors. The trend of rising interest rates would not yet appear to have abated
in the United Kingdom, and supposedly not in the United States. There are also
indications that both the United States dollar as always, and the British pound
sterling are overvalued and destined for significant and disturbing corrections.

At the same time, inflation is on an upwards trajectory: these factors, when
taken together cause a degree of caution when looking beyond the immediate flood
of funds fuelling takeovers for such venerable institutions as Sainsbury's and
Alliance Boots, not to mention Altadis and numerous other approaches occurring
in world markets.

We will therefore continue to keep our gold exposure, which appears on a rising
trend. Our other metals, whilst subject to squalls from the Chinese/Indian
economies and their progress will in coming years boost our portfolio which
remains underpinned by those stalwarts mentioned earlier. Whilst realised
profit will be subject to the happenstance of corporate activity and takeover,
our goal remains raising the asset value per share.

After 6 months on the AIM market, we have now said farewell, to Chris Burman,
and welcome Steven McKeane from Scotland via Sydney, as his highly competent
successor. We also regrettably, have lost Rosanna to the hallowed environs of
Oxford, but greet Vicky Clutterbuck stepping nimbly into her shoes; all assisted
cheerfully and authoritatively by Abbie. I would like to thank them and my
fellow directors for their continued support and wise advice, along with that of
our advisers, brokers and colleagues.
