vacendak: No, in fact, we do not own any Twitter according to the latest list of holdings given on April 8th. htTps:// We do (did?) have some NETFLIX INC and MOSCOW EXCHANGE MICEX RTS PJ at that time though.
vacendak: hTtps:// An article on those ITs that have been around forever. FCIT is just below average at 18/35. The ranking is not fully relevant though as some of them are specialists, thus riskier, or less liquid, than the global behemoths. Others have fully morphed into something else and should be considered "young", such as Witan Pacific (that used to be managed by F&C) that is now Baillie Gifford China Growth. The article is focusing on the age of the listed trusts.
acol: Many years ago I used to hold 3 Investment Trusts under their regular saving schemes - FCIT, BGSC & SMT. FCIT was by far the least successful of the 3! Nowadays, I just trade FCIT occasionally and like Vacendak use the Trust as pedestrian ballast. I sometimes miss the highs but usually manage to slice reasonably consistent profits. One of the virtues of FCIT is the miniscule spread. For what it's worth I no longer hold the other 2 shares but for different reasons.
vacendak: That is the reason: Large company, a LOT of holdings, so totally insensitive to anything in particular, Amazon, Tesla, Unilever, whatever, everything is smoothed. Obviously, this is also the whole point of FCIT. There is not much to comment about with regards to strategy either (they collect them all, value, growth, income, etc.) beyond the very slight shift towards private equity a few years back. Then again, we are still talking of "fund of PE funds", so nothing too adventurous and no big direct holding. The only comment for this whale is whether or not it beats its index over 5 or 10Y, thus is no longer the closet tracker it used to be before Paul Niven took over. I use F&C as stabilising ballast in my portfolio.
vacendak: Good news: The NAV is now hovering above what it was before the plague. Before then FCIT was running at a premium, now it is at an 8.6% discount and the trust is buying back instead of releasing shares. Thus the share price not looking so great.
vacendak: Considering the likelihood that a communist entering the White House has gone down a bit after Super Tuesday, 50% or so of FCIT should indeed rebound once COVID-19 is behind us.
sutherlh: Topped up yesterday, markets still very choppy but I think the US markets will ultimately return to their highs in maybe 6 to 12 months. FCIT with its US exposures should do similar (fingers crossed) H
sutherlh: New high, let’s hope around 730 to 740 provides support. With the US market looking like it wants to melt up, FCIT could go a lot further (fingers crossed). H
vacendak: FCIT is meant to be reassuringly boring and is rightly advertised as a one-stop shopping solution. It is diversified in geography and strategy. At nearly 500 holdings, it would be hard to get excited about any of them doing well or badly as would be the case with a fund holding only twenty. The only comments would be on the strategy and the taste they have acquired for Private Equity endeavours of late. They used to get exposure through various Pantheon funds, but seem to have taken it more in house recently. Not many mention of that in the latest reports though. I also like them being heavy America at around 50%. I have a significant slice of it in my portfolio to act as a baseline, trying to see if my other choices beat FRCL on the long term.
sutherlh: Ex div for 2.9p today, share price unchanged at moment, looking good nice and steady progress.
