I've bought a few this morning. This is at a silly discount for such a good long term performer. 15%pa growth for 10 years is a fantastic record. To buy at 13% discount is a bargain.

HSL up 18p today 3%plus and you can still buy HSL at around 8% discount to NAV that is bound to narrow if market stays steady over next few weeks

Thank you Henry, very interesting. I have long been interested in SLS, but have recently been trying to ride the closing discounts as (hopefully!) with HSL. I will free up some uk smaller cash soon by selling fidelity smaller, and SLS could give good protection in a downturn as you suggest. River and Mercantile are also in the mix. Thanks

Bigwilly.... you might be interested in the Telegraph link and chart shown on the last two posts on the SLS thread (posts 22 & 23). Basically it shows how SLS are less cyclical than HSL or BRSC. This tends to give both HSL & BRSC an outperformance over SLS in bull markets but makes SLS far less volatile in bear markets. It might also be the reason SLS tend to trade at full NAV while HSL & BRSC tend to trade at a discount to their NAV. I now hold all three but in a bull market I'm overweight HSL & BRSC with the intention of switching to overweight SLS if we get signs of a bear market. So, the first sign of a bear market might be when all three funds retrace with HSL & BRSC retracing faster than SLS. By the same reckoning, when the markets return to bullish BRSC & HSL should start rising faster than SLS. All three threads are fairly quiet, which on ADVFN is no bad thing.

Westhouse; Henderson Smaller Cos (HSL.L, -11.2%, Buy) – With discounts continuing to contract on a number of funds in the UK Smaller Companies space, HSL is looking somewhat out of place as a 'value' play. NAV performance remains positive and certainly mid-range vs. its peers (over the last 1-3 months), which does not warrant what is in some cases a significantly inferior rating to those same peers.

Share price 552p looks like a winner to me at 10% discount to NAV and a very good manager

Westhouse; Strong results released this morning by Henderson Smaller Companies Investment Trust (HSL.L, -12.1%), with sustained outperformance of the Fund's benchmark. HSL has been (partly) rewarded with a narrowing of its discount in recent weeks, although this still stands at a 2.8 percentage point discount to the weighted sector average. Well diversified portfolio with solid housing secto r exposure The Board has also announced a strong uplift in the final dividend to a proposed 6.5p per share (5.5p in 2012) and flagged a shift in account ing policy that should allow further dividend rises moving forward. Effective 1 June 201 3, investment management fees and finance costs will be allocated 70/30 to the capita l and revenue accounts respectively, having previously entirely been charged to revenue. Performance fees will continue to be charged to capital. Superficially, there are a number of UK smaller com pany trusts sitting in what one might determine as 'expensive' territory. HSL is among th ese, but certainly not the most expensive. It is also the strongest-performing smal ler company trust over both one and three years and a top quartile performer over five years. So arguably there is more to come on the (relative) re-rating if smaller company NAV performances are sustained. The key determinant of pricing trends among the sma ller company trusts in the short term may be risk perceptions and any US tapering im pact, rather than the quality of managers or specific companies. Regardless, the HSL portfolio is well diversified, not excessively geared with positives also including so lid exposure at the top end of the portfolio (both direct and indirect) to the relativ ely buoyant UK housing market.

Westhouse; Henderson Smaller Companies (HSL.L, -15.0%, Buy) – Strong performance credentials continue to be ignored on this trust with the disco unt now double that found on Aberforth Smaller Cos (ASL.L, -7.2%, Sell) . This comes despite HSL adding slightly more on a NAV TR basis over the last 6-12 months.
