Not so pleased to see how they calculate the dividend though. The 4% is calculated once a year and divided into two payments. So we don't get 2% of the mid July price.

This year IBT bought back about £1m of shares (172,546 shares) at an average price of £5.82 and have just issued 75,000 shares at £7.94. Rarely see great benefit from buy backs but that looks impressive.

The two US phase 3 trials of Remdesivir are still recruiting and won't be reporting before May. hTtps://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04292730 hTtps://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT04292899 The similar Chinese trials had to be suspended because of lack of suitable patients. (Trump's incompetence will help to ensure plenty of US participants) Optimism in the press is based on the publication of a small uncontrolled trial in the NEJM, with promising but inconclusive results. Still, promising is good, for now. hTtps://www.ft.com/content/c59a385f-62e1-42a2-b8ac-2ecb44305e4e

That is actually fake news and has been down played by the company itself. You need to be careful where you get your news from these days.

More positive news from Gilead testing of Remdesivir on severe Covid patients in Chicago trials.

The tide may well have turned here since Bernie pulled out of the US presidential race. In addition Bloomberg are reporting today some success in a trial of Gilead's remdesivir where two thirds of Covid 19 patients showed improvement. Gilead being IBT's second largest holding. Hopefully we will not be revisiting the lows of 3 weeks ago any time soon.

Yes, it would appear that the benefits of the attractive dividend policy have been more than nullified by NAV performance where IBT has noticeably lagged its peers over the past 5yrs. It would certainly be pleasing to see that change. The irony of course is that the discount to NAV has narrowed significantly over the same time period.

Quite disappointing, other healthcare/bio trusts on the move over the last few months. IBT nothing. Nothing for a fair few years, hopefully a rocket has been ignited somewhere in the portfolio.

Thanks all rambuten ,thanks for the factsheet. It looks interetsing but the intro is a bit over my head!! Welcome to our September Factsheet. Autumn is officially upon us and, quite literally, everything is turning brown. This month, we have ‘adroitly̵7; circumnavigated a seemingly endless horizon of icebergs, and one can at least enjoy the band’s jaunty music for a while longer. Reaching the calmer waters of macro-political stability has become quite the odyssey. Rest assured, we harbour no delusions of exceptional strength and are fully aware that much lies below the surface. We remain thusly focused on avoiding the obstacles ahead, be they white or brown. onto the others...

Hi Robsy2 Am in here for the same reasons. Very much for the long term. Im afraid I don't have the answer though, not been good performance but will keep for the time being. Investments can lag, but feel being in a investment trust , they will change it up. Well thats one theory!

I just want to be invested in this area or similar healthcare as part of a long term thematic positioning in healthcare , medicine , biotech etc. I am wondering out loud if I am in the right place here .

Dividends, buybacks, share issuance and discount I am pleased to report that the Company's fifth and sixth dividend payments were made during the financial year. We paid out a dividend equal to 4% of NAV as at 31 August 2018 in two equal tranches on 31 January 2019 and 31 August 2019, equating to a 4.1% increase when compared with dividend payments in the previous year. In accordance with the Shareholder Circular dated 13 September 2016 and as a matter of best practice, the Board will be seeking Shareholder approval to continue the payment of dividends and a resolution will be put to Shareholders at the forthcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM)...

According to the most recent monthly factsheet, the NAV as at financial year end on 31/8/2019 was £239m (622p per share). HTTPS://ibtplc.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/August-Factsheet-2019.pdf Current dividend policy is to pay out an amount eqivalent to 4% of yr end NAV in two tranches. NAV as at 31/8/2018 was 699p which equated to a dividend of 28.0p in the current FY (2 x 14.0p payments) If NAV as at 31/8/2019 was 622p, this would appear to equate to a dividend of 24.75-25.0p over the next 12 months, which would represent a reduction of c.11-12%.

QuoteData- Beating the odds view report Strategic positioning in mid-2018 helped International Biotechnology Trust (IBT) beat its benchmark over the past six months and close its discount to net asset value (NAV). This continued its outperformance of the US Nasdaq Biotechnology Index (NBI) over three and five years. Active management of the portfolio and an increased focus on larger mid-caps played out well in terms of IBT’s performance versus its peers. IBT’s manager is maintaining its established policy of active risk mitigation, designed to avoid exposure to binary events that can cause large swings in the share price (typically the results of the Phase III trials that provide the final confirmation of safety and efficacy before the FDA approves a treatment for marketing). This should be seen as another attraction to investors in the trust. IBT’s shares have recently moved to trade at a premium to NAV and it has been issuing stock, expanding the fund.
