That should read between 666p and 860p.

You’ve been unlucky here. They have indeed gone nowhere for 2 years. Well nowhere for holders. Being a little more trigger happy I sold a number 2 years ago for 929p and was fortunate to buy them all back between 666p and 800p. I don’t think the holdings are dull at all but that’s what makes a market. I’m currently holding more than I’ve ever done and believe that £10/£11 will come along in due course. Lots of holdings are well below their peak SPs and largely their businesses are earning more. Nick Train recently said as much. Good luck where ever you go next.

It was so dull that I decided to sell out. I wanted to top up Some other underperforming holding and needed to sell something to do so. I went through portfolio and unfortunately FGT seemed the dullest and had to go. Break even after 2 years.

I topped up today at 860p ahead of the 1 April XD. So.....You can be pretty sure the price will head south in the short term, sorry.

Reminds me of one of my fav poems. Its called Ketchup...."If you do not shake the bottle, none 'll come and then a lot'll."

A number of the highest weighting’s in here are 20/30% off recent highs and even more in HL. But they will eventually report better earnings and the SPs will eventually catch up. One of Nick Trains analogies is trying to get sauce out of a bottle. You shake and shake, nothing, then everything comes out at once. Currently there’s a lot of shaking and nothing. It’s a top up time IMO.

Expected it to do well as they have holding in Burberry which just issued "Ahead of expectation" trading statement!

I thought this trust would do well from all the "growth was soooo 2020, return to value" articles I've been reading, but it steadfastly sticks at or around 850p

I am beginning to lose faith here. Buy and do nothing works well when shares are in long term uptrends, but not so well when those turn. Monitoring closely...

ref post 33 The UK Buffettology Trust didn't get sufficient support and the IPO got yanked. But there's still the OIEC

I am a fan of the overall approach and like most of the holdings. The one I would question is Unilever due to the secular shift in their largest markets to own brand labels. My biggest issue with the fund is the way Nick Trane speaks to its investors. He is like an overly arrogant Cambridge Don speaking to a bunch of kids at the local comprehensive school. He speaks so slowly and like you are all a bunch of idiots. Really makes you just want to give him a smack. Alongside most of his UK investment Fund peers (inc RIT, City of London, Witan, BES etc) they have walked like lemmings off the cliff and failed to recognize the seismic shifts and changing nature of what constitutes value in 2020. If you like value look to Japan / Asia not Unilver and Mondelez.

Good timing Steve3 I bought in July 2018, and for the last 4 months have been bouncing either side of breakeven. It certainly has a different mix of investments to others, but feels that the post-March recovery stalled long ago whereas other UK trusts display better performance. I'm wondering whether to buy the new UK Buffettology Trust BUFF at launch, or whether it will immediately drop to a discount to NAV at which stage it would be better value.

Looks like a trust that's lost its mojo? Worth holding for the future, or are there better stories out there?

Finsbury Growth & Income Trust: Train worth boarding in tough times The Times: 21 April 2020 In volatile markets such as these, it must be tempting for investors to turn to traditional stalwarts, perceived to offer safety when the world looks shaky. Finsbury Growth & Income Trust is a good example of one of these vehicles, highly popular among individual investors because of its very strong track record in creating value. An investment trust that is a constituent of the FTSE 250, Finsbury Growth & Income Trust has flourished since 2000, when Lindsell Train — and one of its founders, Nick Train, 60 — took control of the portfolio and the investment process.

I'm here. Sell before the "herd immunity" strategy gets you. Mobile crematoria manufacturers are holding up well
