One company where HRI own 6.7% is exciting CyanConnode, very active in India - but at 0.24% of HRI assets it's unlikely to have a lot of impact - the nature of diverse trusts.....

The annual financial report released this morning has breakdowns by countries and sectors in which it invests, and also the top 20 holdings

Yes was just checking that good news for HRI and it sure needs some, unfortunately not a concentrated portfolio I think only about $30M of GBG shares. Not enough for the share price to leg up anyway.

discount about 18% or might be about 19 when NAV announced on monday takes account of good day on markets on friday . What % of HRI investments are in USA ikf anyone knows ? tempted to buy on monday if not a wide spread but we are spoilt for choice at present

NAV is the share price of the underlying share. The Gap increases in bear markets with investment trusts but it does mean you are buying a share in the underlying assets at a discount.
Normally trades at about 12% discount so you are getting 10% for free. Its just a question of how patient you are

Price fall is well overdone.

I don't think it's irrelevant Spangle. I think one of the weaknesses of individual share chats is the lack of comparative comments. I can bounce from Pantheon to HVPE to Oakley to NASCIT etc. and find committed lovers (you know what I mean). On individual stock, as opposed to trust, chats there can at least be some naysayers, though sadly these situations often deteriorate.

I would propose a joint share chat for these types of trusts, but of course it's hard to draw the perimeter, and people who aren't THAT interested will get their inboxes swamped with notifications.

I can roughly simplify analysis of these trusts (from pretty much fully unlisted holdings to fully listed) to: discount, catalyst for shrinkage, and underlying growth. The last should be most important, especially in 'normal' markets, though I tend to get a bit too focused on the discount (TFG anyone?). There are people that know IPO and its closer comparatives much better than me (see the thread) but it seems to me IPO's real NAV is quite probably 170p plus. Unlisted trusts tend to have very conservatives NAVs in rising markets, because of a) time-lag (valuations end March etc.), b) conservative accountants, c) valuing at last funding round. IPO is more in the public eye due to Oxford Nanopore, and is the best way (in my view) to hold ONT, is buying back its shares and generally seems to be run well.

I have to say that Herald's long term record is very strong, especially since 2016, and I think it has a better five year record than all my other investment trusts. I tend to think that some of this kind of stellar outperformance will be luck, and we may be seeing a bit of normalisation over the last few months in terms of limited outperformance of appropriate benchmarks. Also it's got quite large which I think can be a drag given there is a limit to how many smallish brilliant ideas the team can have. Finally, sector rotation may be relevant.

To conclude I see Herald as a modestly sized core holding, rising to oversized when the discount goes above 15% (especially given willingness to buy back shares). IPO would be a smaller core holding at a 5% discount (I was almost out entirely around 150p), but is an over-sized opportunity at present (helped by buybacks), particularly given a lot of the NAV lag has come through in my other trusts, such that discounts are no longer so understated, and tend to be in the 15-20% range (vs 30-40% not that long ago).

Sorry for partly O/T, but what do you see in IPO vs HRI. Is it discount - if so how does bamboo calculate a rolling NAV? Is it because HRI has had a good run, whereas IPO is off its highs? ...

I'm very happy with HRI's management's performance, but I'm always interested to hear views on other companies. Please PM me if you don't think it's relevant to this bulletin board

Bought some more at a 15% discount the other day.

Historically that has been a good time to buy.

The only smaller cap funds I own are NAS and HRI- management teams so much smarter than the rest.

Increasingly good news from ITM should feed through to HRI share price before long.
