HSL has grown its yeilds fairly rapidly over the past few years. It will be 4-5% on cost in the next few years im sure.

Bought in here today, normally chasing income but these are a good diversifier, giving exposure to companies not normally on my radar and at a discount. Hopefully a long term hold

Yes but only £500-worth. Will see how it pans out in the days to come and continue buying selectively.

I'll try to sit on my hands until next week. It could get very nervy. Just listened to Paul Marriage of Schroders saying that the UK Smaller Companies space is looking appetising on a p/e of 12. And here we are sitting on a nice discount to that.

Good call. I bought some yesterday at 566 on a gamblers hunch!

Sold down 75% of holding last week on grouds that HS L would get hammered in the event of a Brexit. In which case the discount could be appetising.

Great that they have paid down expensive debt. Why on earth have they not re-financed this earlier?

A minor thing, but repaying that debenture is very good news - it had been costing a fortune and had been a significant drag on performance: £20m at 10.5% is £2.1m a year. It shows how good the manager here is that he's beaten the sector in 9 out of 10 years despite swimming in lead boots.

Nice timing MF. Agreed the discount is much too wide. The outcome of the Referendum will dictate a binary reaction in the UK market - especially mid- and small-cap stocks. Brexit vote will cause great instability (and maybe better buying opportunity) whereas a Remain vote will trigger a strong relief rally. Phased buying on further nervous dips over the next month is my tactic to hedge the bets, keeping some powder dry in case of a post-referendum collapse. Watch the share price vary with the polls in the run-up to 23 June!

I bought a load today at 607. The discount is too wide atm and the NAV has started moving up too.

Bamboo...don't overlook the gaps. One just above your target and another between 685 & 690. I appreciate yours is a shorter term target but I'm banking on both gaps getting filled medium to long term.

Previous H&S failed to hit target. Now looks like InvH&S potential for 645-650...

The discount is currently much wider than usual. At a guess, I'd say over the last year the discount has been between 5-15%, so it is really just chance that it was the same as the gearing last month.

I noticed by chance from the last monthly fact sheet that the discount to NAV is almost the same as the net gearing - both around 9%. Is that a coincidence or a regular feature?

"As at close of business on 4 March 2016, the unaudited net asset value per share calculated in accordance with the AIC formula (including current financial year revenue items) was 701.1p and the net asset value per share with debt marked at fair value was 700.4p" Hell of a discount here. I wonder whether they are considering share buy backs?

Right, time to buy this now - discount has widened again and I think HSL will be over £7 by year end.
