HDIV is more like NCYF, MGCI, the kind of safe debt/bond funds that should work like the "higher rate savings accounts" of yesteryear.

These are meant to milk the investment and conserve value. They obviously have a tough life during a phase of rising interests where "the markets" believe we should be back to forever QE in a year or two.

I had been looking into HDIV a few years ago then opted for LWDB, nothing to do about bonds of course but regular high-ish divi yield at ludicrously low risk.

Always find your posts informative CC2014, what would be your preferred bond/debt funds?
I hold HDIV for the income as long as they keep paying the dividend I'm quite happy.

wllm :)

I own HDIV and it has its place in a well balanced portfolio.

It is never going to make a massive return but it pays a steady dividend from the underlying bonds and it does what it says on the tin.

That's a decent amount of shares and a very good price for that volume.

One wonders where the share price would be without it? However, it looks to me like it's enough to scoop up the overhang and the share price seems to have bottomed, at least for the moment anyway.

Henderson Diversified Income Trust – Ahead of the curve 17 March 2022

Markets were already pricing in a number of interest rate rises this year as central bankers look to choke off inflation. As we explain in this note, the managers have positioned the trust’s conservative and quality-focused portfolio in anticipation of a swift end to this process. That could help trigger the next phase of outperformance by the trust, as bond yields compress and their price rises to reflect lower than expected interest rates.

The trend towards a wider discount over the past year or so may reflect HDIV’s yield and short-term performance relative to its peer group. The recent further widening is likely a reflection of investors’ unease following the invasion of Ukraine.

We feel that it is perverse that investors are not rewarding the conservative nature of HDIV’s portfolio in the current environment. However, if the managers’ expectation of a rapidly deteriorating economy and a swift end to rate rises plays out as they expect, the situation could change quite quickly.

Each year, the directors ask shareholders for permission to allot new shares and buyback existing ones. At the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in September 2021, shareholders approved the issuance of up to 10% of HDIV’s then-issued share capital and the repurchase of up to 14.99% of its then-issued share capital.

The managers say that it is not always easy to repurchase shares at times when the discount is wide. Nevertheless, HDIV has bought back almost 3m shares since our last note was published and it seems likely that repurchases will be made while the discount is as wide as it is.

HDIV does have the option to hold shares that it buys back in treasury, and re-issue them at a later date. However, shares will only be issued at a premium to asset value.

Central Banks raising interest rates to combat inflation should have an adverse effect on the corporate bond market ... won’t this have a negative impact on HDIV share price?
Posted at 04/1/2022 14:09 by cc2014
But is it in the price already? Remember HDIV owns alot of long dated bonds. I will use an example.

HDIV's largest holding is Nationwide CCDS. These are shares which pay a fixed interest rate of 10.25% in perpetuity (unless various things happen when they would pay zero instead).

Today they are trading at 189p, giving a yield of 5.4%. Broadly, if the BOE base rate went to 3% then the actual yield would have to rise to 8.15% to keep things equal. And at 8.15% the share price would be around 125p. That would be a 34% capital loss.

Of course, my example suggests BOE raise the interest rate to 3%. I've pulled that out of thin air and I don't think any of us think it's going that high any time soon but you can re-run the numbers for a 1% rise or 2% rise or whatever you feel appropriate.

However, we should also consider just how puffed up valuations are by all the QE.
In August 2018 when interest rates were last at 0.75%, which seems a likely position by late this year, this share was trading at about 165p. In Aug 2016 when the interest rate was last at 0.25%, this share was trading at around 132p. Of course Nationwide's balance sheet wasn't as strong then. Maybe valuations will remain puffed up, maybe they won't. I don't know.

So, sure the discount to NAV is large, but if the NAV falls year on year as interest rates rise, that won't stop the share price falling too. There's not much point in collecting an annual dividend of 5.25% if the share price falls 5% in a year, regardless of the discount to NAV.

It all depends really. Do we have stagflation? Will the central banks act to squash inflation? HDIV's Board believe inflation is transitory and have positioned the portfolio accordingly.

Hi CWA1.

I guess it depends what you are looking for? I live off my investments and one of the biggest challenges I have is not accumulating too much high yield stuff. I have plenty of NCYF, AXI, NBMI for example.

HDIV has nowhere near the risk or yield of the other 3 funds I've named above, so I'm deciding to accept a lower yield deliberately.

HDIV is very well run fund and it's worth looking through what the investment managers write. I think they are one of the best in the sector. For a very long time they were invested in long duration bonds which gave them great capital gains. They are now reducing this but still the duration is much longer than NCYF for example. I'm not sure this they are reducing the duration fast enough for my liking but over the last 3 years they have called the situation far far better than me and I'm more than happy to invest in managers who have a great track record and just leave them to it.

Having said that if the share price reaches 90p, which is where I think it should be I'll start slicing. Only a few months ago it was trading at 92p above NAV, until John Baron kind of tipped it as a sell (NCYF at the same time). Although I have a lump from around 85p, I've also got a lump sub 80p so I find it easier to run winners. NCYF has come all the way back and more yet HDIV still languishes, partly because everyone is focussed on yield not total returns.

I'm more interested in total returns and a comparison shows AXI and HDIV have been the place to be over the last 3 years. That's not to say things won't change. My data is from the end of July. AXI has moved significantly since. AXI and NCYF have gone XD.

AXI NAV 103.92p, buy price 92.86p, Discount to NAV 10.6%, Yield 6.5%, 3 year performance 8.1% pa

HDIV NAV 93.2p, buy price 86.12, Discount to NAV 7.6%, Yield 5.1%, 3 year performance 8.1% pa

BIPS NAV 195.49p, buy price 187.4p, Discount to NAV 4.2%, Yield 5.9%, 3 year perfomance 7.4%

SMIF NAV 93.36p, buy price 96.88p, Premium to NAV 3.8%, Yield 6.3%, 3 year performance 7.3% pa

NCYF NAV 51.23p, buy price 55.15, Premium to NAV 7.7%, Yield 8.1%, 3 year performance 5.7% pa

Oh and finally HDIV have a discount control policy which they actually employ. They recently bought 1m shares at 85p so that puts a floor under the share price. (which means perhaps I cannot lose on this trade?)
