I was listening to Alex Wright at Fidelity Special Values today. I must admit to liking his style at present.

This makes you think.

Diageo is on a 52 week low. It's on a forward P/E of 19 and valued at 9x book value yielding just 2.5%. Analyst consensus are flat to down a bit.

Barclays is at a similar price level to a year ago, is on a P/E of 5 and valued at 35% of book value with a prospective yield of 6%. Analyst consensus estimates have been increasing.

Question 1 - which is the better quality company? Easy, it's obviously Diageo.
Question 2 - which is the better investment at a 4% 10 year bond rate? More tricky. I might have to say Barclays, even though its a dreaded too big to fail bank!

Any thoughts? Alex Wright is big on banks such as Barclays and NatWest along with Phoenix, Aviva and Impreial Brands. All reasonable quality very high yielding stocks at very low valuations.

NAV and share price going up.

Those holdings move around quite actively though and with good success. It's almost the polar opposite of Train.

This and LWDB are my main UK trusts (ex property & infra), it's a nice alternative to a FTSE all-share tracker as a core holding

Ian Cowie recommended FSV in his ii article yesterday as a solid play in troubled times.

Tip in investors chronicle.

NAV now 228.26p

After a decade of underperformance, dedicated value names are few and far between. But options do remain, including Fidelity Special Values (FSV).

This investment trust has already benefited somewhat from recent gains: its shares traded at a premium of more than 2 per cent to the portfolio’s net asset value (NAV) on 17 November, having sat on an average discount of nearly 4 per cent over the previous 12 months. But a focus on unpopular, domestic-facing UK stocks could continue to deliver substantial gains in the coming years.

As analysts at fund research outlet FundCalibre have noted, holdings in the trust that could benefit from an improving economic situation include Meggitt (MGGT), which provides components to aerospace businesses, and C&C (CCR), a drinks company which has been hit hard by the pandemic but continues to make money.

Investment manager Alex Wright has also used debt to ramp up the trust’s exposure to its portfolio, with gearing recently coming to 17 per cent of assets. This additional exposure would allow the portfolio to benefit more from any future gains.

Importantly, Mr Wright also focuses on preserving capital. As FundCalibre analysts note, the investment team choose companies “with exceptionally cheap valuations or an asset, such as intellectual property or inventory, which has the potential to limit share price falls”. The team also seeks companies where there is a catalyst for significant earnings growth, rather than blindly hoping for economic improvements.

In an end of September update, Mr Wright noted that the portfolio was “fairly balanced” in terms of risk, with exposure spread out across more than 100 holdings. The team has also been focusing on companies that have prospered in the pandemic, rather than simply buying beaten up stocks, while going underweight mainstream banks and oil and gas names.

“Unusually for a recession, some households are better off, as they spend less on eating out, holidays and transport due to the restrictions,” Mr Wright said in an end of September commentary.

“The pandemic has led them to reassess their priorities, and we are seeing evidence of increased demand in areas such as housing, DIY, electronics and sportswear/bicycle sales. Very unusually, some companies are actually upgrading their earnings guidance, despite the pandemic. These are areas where we have built meaningful exposure.”
