There's some fantastic value in UK IT's, I built a recent aggressive position
in BRSC, JMI and MTU, which has paid off at least short term. Intend to close
a % of those today, JMI has gone XD as well, so also have the annual divi
(one of the few IT's that pay once a year).

The EAT payout is too high and weighing on longer term performance.
I've recently bought in as sentiment towards European small caps is
on the floor ATM and that may hopefully reverse somewhat over the next 12 months.

If war spreads in the ME it alters the outlook significantly, however there are
always risks and reasons not to buy something.

It was a discussion nobody was having when the price was a lot higher. All you can do is look at the very long term price (20+ years) and it's generally trending upwards, but with lulls such as now. 6% is a bit high to give away and there's minimal growth here as a result.

EAT v MTE, any views appreciated.

Looks like EAT is selling off today due to this. Mild technical recession' forecast in eurozoneS&P Global Market Intelligence are predicting a "mild technical recession" in the eurozone, in the second half of this year.Currently, US is the only direction of travel for investors. Arguably India too based on the trusts I hold. I think momentum from increasing price forecast may help the US but it is over valued and certainly not cheap. There will be a correction there at a point too as indexes are being driven by an increasing small amount of stocks. Europe will take time to recover, however, EAT has hit my near term numbers today below 84p is buying opportunity for me. I'll add this week. The current Nav hanging around 93.3p is opposite to what we are all hoping for, hopefully it can resist a sell off whilst setiment isn't through the floor.

A very good post Mark!Today's NAV 96.33 , with the right momentum it can press higher. Obviously, lots will be made from the ECB and its interest hiking process so it is anything but guaranteed. I have held EAT for a while, I have sold out of other growth focused trusts when needed to, and let this tick along. 150p was the selling point of the current cycle, however there will always be another if you have time. I have been buying throughout this year and previously. When it is below 90p I buy, and below 80p (rarely) I buy a lot more. My yield is double digit, so beating inflation and not having to move about too much. However, capital is down as we know the share price is sub 90p. But if you have time and can afford to be patient, it is a solid trust, in my opinion.

Remember it is NAV not share price which sets the dividend. Last year we ended in a dip at around 97p. It would not take much of a rally from here to end 2023 at that mark or higher.

The surges to 120p+ and 150p+ in recent years now seem distant and show how sensitive even sound diverse stock portfolios are to macro economic factors. The income those phases produced was superb though, and the possibility that we will see those days again is a good argument for accumulating EAT while the share price is at such a historically low level.

In previous cycles I have forgotten or chosen not to top-slice and bank some gains, perhaps that was a mistake in hindsight but the rewards for holding on have been good.

A modest, but better than nothing, director share purchase...

We have to be patient for the recovery here and we will be well rewarded. A double discount indeed.

What's the betting that hl delay crediting the EAT dividend to our accounts today and cling on to the cash over the long weekend. Something like this happens every time, can't be an accident. (Landed in ajb first thing this morning).

Thank you! I can't say I am massively surprised by the underperformance but it is a big difference between EAT and the index. It has been a tough year for EAT given lots of geopolitical issues on the doorstep. I think the final paragraph on outlook says it all, credit tightens from here. That will make it harder for many smaller companies, but also could dampen retail spending. It will be interesting to see.But under 90p this is always worth buying in my opinion. I added just below 89p recently. Build the dividend yield for when the portfolio turns around in time. It may be some years before we see 8.8p dividend however.

And with today's progress to 135p I think EAT share price is hitting a 5-year and all-time high? Thank goodness I stuck with EAT through its bad patch.

Since EAT converts asset value growth into dividends, by setting a 6% of year-end NAV as the payout, hopefully this means we can look forward to even better income next year. But it is NAV and not share price or the shrinking discount we need to watch. And remembering NAV gets diluted as Sterling gains on the Euro, so we are running into a slight breeze.

NAV peaked at 145p recently and is now about 142p compared to 2020 year end at around 136p. Ending they year over 150p for a 9p+ annual dividend would be terrific.
