I never usually bother reading Net Asset Value RNS's but I clicked on this by mistake. I missed out on both Telecom Plus and YooMedia but this trust didn't and their share price doesn't seem to reflect any of the recent tech growth. In fact, it looks too good to be true. Any one know what the catch is? ========================================= Net Asset Value31/07/2003 08:00:22 Foresight Technology VCT PLC 31 July 2003 Foresight Technology VCT plc Net Asset Value The Company announces that as at 30 June 2003, the unaudited net asset value of the Ordinary Shares was 98.59p per share and the unaudited net asset value of the 'C' Shares was 70.34p per share. The Company also announces that it sold 500,000 shares held in Telecom Plus plc, an investment in the Ordinary Shares fund, at £2.18 per share on 17 July 2003 compared to an average subscription price of 38p per share. The Company further announces that the share price of YooMedia plc, another investment in the Ordinary Shares fund, has increased from 4.5p per share as at 30 June 2003 to 10.75p per share as at 29 July 2003 resulting in an increase in the unaudited net asset value of the Ordinary Shares of 6.93p per share.
Try using the correct epic for your thread. It should be FTG not FTV! Hil.
Aim listed Motionposter the innovative advertising co that broadcasts moving images in underground stations, tunnels and subways across the world has seen its share price rise 200% (12p - 33p) in the last two months, on the back of impressive contract wins. FTV, also listed on Aim, is a similar co. It sells advertising spots on large television screens on petrol forecourts. After a tip in this weekends Sunday Times, and unveiling a contract with Granada service stations, the price rose from 52.5p to 58p. But FTV has been tipped again as a buy in todays 'Independent' newspaper which says the price has further to go. When the company floated last year it promised a rollout of 1000 sites. 700 will be ready by this year and the rest by next year. As the Times sez "FTV keeps its promises" and is a buy.
Foresight sold Policy master for £360,000 and Bond for £350,000 (after the profits warning).They also have a £1mill stake in Edistrict which is launching next month. There were only 750 shareholders in the original float which raised £11mill - nearer £85mill market cap as on Friday's price. Interesting AGM last week.They will have to go some to repeat the performance with the C shares. regards linhur
Gee these VCTs are illiquid. As an extreme example - OXFORD TECH.VCT is up 300p on the day, and the spread? SELL 150.0 BUY 700.0 And all this because of a 45k investment in an internet start up and presumably a handful of buys. Foresight will come up with the goods in NAV terms, but much of this is in the price (recent NAV around 185p). IMHO, other VCTs look better value. eg Quester VCT and VCT2 are heavily biased towards techs, holding eg. JSB, XKO, Sopheon, Sibelius software, Orchestream, International Diagnostics (microbiological testing), HSL holdings (software), Policy Master (as in Bullshare's post), First Fibre (LAN products) and Boxman (e-retail). Given the price hikes this week in JSB amongst others, and the fall in Quester, I reckon NAV is now around the market price. And many of the earlier stage investments will still be valued at cost. I hold Quester from launch, will hold for the 5 years, and I don't plan to trade. But I suggest these are a buy for tax free capital growth on a 6 month view. SD

Yes. They have 0 stock. Spread was £1 just now. But its up 28% today.
Is that why there is NO volume showing? Thanks PaulB
Up nicely today. But what a massive spread. Does this mean the MM's are short of stock and discouraging buying? PaulB
