It points to good times returning, after a very long spell of underperformance.

It certainly is distinct from its peer group (Exhibit 9). Of the 20 companies, it's either top or bottom for every metric bar a couple (charges and discount)

Heineken, a top 10 holding, announced its first quarter results today. Revenue up 8.9% and a high single digit increase in profits. The holdings in the FGT portfolio continue to do well. Hopefully this will be eventually reflected in the trust share price.

Thankfully I sold out of this last year but still read Nicks musings with keen interest. For all he bangs on about quality FGT hasn't performed nearly as well as CTY which is stuffed full of miners, oil and the likes of BAE etc.

The contrarian in me feels maybe to start drip feeding back in over the next few months...In 5 years this will all be another dip on some graph.

It does look relatively cheap. Share price below pre-pandemic levels. The companies are arguably doing well but individually there are some pricey stocks among them. Have been adding at these (discounted) lower levels.

EssentialInvestor - I agree that it was a good idea, but the timing was wrong and because the timing was wrong then the top end price was also wrong. It might have been possible if Unilever share price was 50% higher. Simple numbers, they were offering 50% of the Unilever market cap for a business a quarter of the size. Crazy to be giving away equity for something valued so much higher than their own great business. I think Terry Smith summed it up better.

Unilever probably needs a Board reset as they have had a poor 5 year period. They also need to get their own house in order as the performance has been lacklustre. Terry Smith is spot on, as ever.

Nick Train is a very good investor, but is sometimes a tad over loyal to his holdings. £50bn was a very full price.

I am not sure what planet GSK are on, but surely anything around £50bn is a very good price for a £10bn turnover £2bn profit business. I would be very surprised if the market cap on IPO is anywhere near that and more possibly £40bn.

Spangle, FGT has beaten the FTSE 100 and 250 over 5 years with 29% growth plus another 15% if you include divs reininvested. Admittedly not as good as the S&P 500 but still 9% per year. I'd argue that the S&P is also overvalued compared to FGT holdings right now.

Train has a game plan and he's sticking to it.

Wish he'd do fewer interviews and spend more time identifying companies that will grow the share price

For all the fact that he's lauded by every investment platform, his track record over recent years is hardly stellar

It is his enthusiasm that makes him such a good presenter and easy to listen to, what I am trying to establish is why the discount has opened up, as if he was simply just buying rubbish stocks then the share price would fall but it isn't so what is it that is making Investors not wanting to buy FGT and so lead to the discount opening up, I know FGT operate a 5% discount buy back so it shouldn't widen any further
