2sporrans: The problem with that full holdings list is that it is old news. The top 10 on the HFEL webpage is pretty much current; the full list on the excel ss is end of July att. Actually a month to the good v when i last looked at it a few days ago but well behind the curve nontheless.

2sporrans: The capital appreciation was decent with HFEL until about 3 years ago. I do wonder whether the bar ought to have been progressively lowered as to the 'qualifying' level of income for the shares held by HFEL. Quite apart from the pervasive crushing of yields thinning the prospect field, the balance of reward between growth and 'value' stocks has ever more favoured the former as discount rates have also been crushed. All but a few growth stocks will be screened out, rapid future divi growth notwithstanding. Wonder how big the HFEL reserves are and how much is being consumed to sustain the high payout, currently fully 7.5%. Will we ever be enlightened? Still, the HFEL portfolio is highly [net] cash generative; to be treasured in these times. And East-SE Asia looks to be best region to invest, by some margin.

danieldruff2: I've come to a similar opinion but over the years I have found the steady state of this fund useful when the rest of the market drops. I sell 25-50% of my HFEL, invest in bombed out stocks, then top it up again. Has worked well.

zac0_4: carpingtris - the >5% dividend does look attractive. But the harsh reality is that overall, over 10 years, total returns are nothing to get excited about. A £10,000 investment 10 years ago here is worth £9,454 today, although you have picked up £5,845 in dividend payments. Compare that to £10,000 invested in the Fundsmith Equity fund. Assuming you took capital annually to the same value of the annual HFEL dividend payment, your capital today is worth . . . £37,490! And you've withdrawn the same £5,845 over the period!! I continue to hold, and at present add, here. But once the time is right for me I intend to sell and reinvest my capital across my portfolio of global equity funds. This recent period has clearly highlighted to me the shortcomings of income investing.

aleman: Even more English and Welsh regions are peaking - possibly the majority when you allow for the big testing rise between Sept 1st and 25th of 70% in England and 100%+ in Wales. The peak of wave 2 is spreading from SE to NW. It looks bad in Scotland though - cases up 400% on testing DOWN 40% in the same timeframe. Scotland does not yet look to have built up the immunity that parts of southern England seem to have. Midlands is turning down now. Allow for the 70% rise in English testing and it probably did so a few days ago. Https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/cases?areaType=region&areaName=East%20Midlands I know it's not terribly relavent to HFEL directly but it just highlights how misleading headline case numbers in papers have been. Wave 2 everywhere in Western Europe is turning out nothing like wave 1 in hospitals. They said we were following Spain. Well Spanish hospitalisations halved in early September and now deaths look to have peaked a few weeks later. https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/country/spain/ Luxembourg has amongst the highest testing in the world - more than twice the UK's level - at about 1% of population each day. In the last 4 months it drew no headlines for its wave 2 where they have had 14 deaths from 5025 cases - a case mortality rate of 0.28%. Same as bad flu. (Normal UK flu range is 0.1-0.3%, usually at the lower end.) hxxps://msan.gouvernement.lu/fr/graphiques-evolution.html Luxembourg will still be missing some asymptomatic cases even at their high testing rate so the true IFR for them is more likely to be 0.2% or less. If the rate turns out to be 0.2%, then 20-25m people in the UK might have already had it. That's probably why pockets of the South hit hard in wave 1 have seen no wave 2 and it looks to be turning down in the Midlands already. The North and Scotland haven't got there yet but isolated spots are peaking up there, too, and they are growing in number. https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/cases?areaType=ltla&areaName=Chesterfield https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/cases?areaType=ltla&areaName=Selby This may seem optimistic. It might be, but it also explains why the US Northeast did not get it again. And Sweden, of course. I think the UK's wave 2 is turning and, although the virus will never go away completely, once Scotland and the North are done this time, Covid will just be another cold or flu bug from here. As far as affecting HFEL, some parts of Asia don't seem to have had it yet, including much of China but if it is down to flu levels now (the global total is only 5k per day out of about 160k total deaths per day - that's in bad flu territory if it does not go up again), then China and parts of Asia might not need much lock down again, like Western Europe's wave 2.

aleman: UK household infection survey's estimated infection rate for England a month ago was 3800 per day and rising. The UK is averaging 7 deaths per day now and it's flat or still possibly falling. There is similar going on in other countries. Big rises in cases - modest or no rises in deaths. Covid is now so much like average seasonal flu that I've bought half my HFEL back. Even if it does break out again in those countries in Asia that have not had it significantly yet, the death rates are looking very modest now and not worth locking down for. There are 5000+ Covid deaths globally per day and it's falling. Usually about 160k die each day from all causes. Covid might expand a bit in the autumn like a normal coronavirus but the death rate now seems to be not far out of line with a normal coronavirus. It's not just a cold yet but it's no longer looking much worse than normal flu. Hopefully that will continue, and if it does, I might buy some more HFEL.

2sporrans: As noted in post 365 above; another bizarre day when the indices relevant to HFEL have performed strongly, yet the share price dips. As above, does not seem to be HFEL specific. Very modest appreciation in sterling does not explain. Even more puzzling given XD 5.8p come Thursday; usual tendency to drift up on xd week. As an aside, Intel's woes are joy for Taiwan Semiconductor; up 10% today. HFEL still has over 3% portfolio weighting i believe. Another sign of the times?

uapatel: I hold HFEL, in my trading, ISA and SIPP accounts. This is a balance on other funds. I use Baillie Gifford Pacific fund for my Asia growth rather than expect HFEL to provide growth. The dividends are what I expect from HFEl, growth I look for in my other elements from my overall portfolio. I suppose for me at least, it’s choosing different bits to play different roles.

exel: Thanks EI, have done that on some past occasions. Meanwhile I'm growing/trading it through this period of relative weakness. A couple of other points. HFEL has seemingly paused 'new issues' for the past fortnight (last one circa 5/2/20). While probably understandable, in view of increased volatility, it means that the demand that had been getting filled through that route may (marginally) help prop the share price via direct purchases? At the recent AGM, the point was made that 'new issues' help to keep the (usual) share price premium down - something deemed good for all shareholders - while spreading central fixed costs over a wider portfolio base. To date, this financial year, they've raised £26.9m at average issue price of circa 359.5p. Did I read that HSBC are scaling back various operations to focus more on the FE zone? The long-term macro story, here, still looks good - subject to all the known downsides, and the unknowns that have yet to emerge (as applicable to most markets).
