In 2017 the NAV has gone up, and the share price down, resulting now in a discount at 11%.. any reasons ??

And the price ticks up

I added a few more at 310p - price should move up to the placing price once the deal is more commonly known.

The placing is at £3.29 and the proforma net asset value about £3.50 by my calculation. Great news today as Miton are a quality manager and this should be quite a unique vehicle. Probably worth adding if you can get in below the placing price. Gervais should do a pretty good job and it looks like ongoing charges will be cut from 4% to 2.5%. High costs was probably the biggest problem for this company. I think it's a bit unfair that they are doing a placing without an open offer to existing shareholders. Looks like the CEO is on a decent consultancy arrangement and will be at the table for the placing no doubt. Why couldn't existing holders (without having preference shares) have an opportunity to buy some shares at the placing price?

The price should be higher to reflect the net asset value of £4 when the market price is only £3

As the Administration of Manganese Bronze was confirmed on 30th October (after MNGS announcement of intention on 22nd) the INV Chairman's statement was dated the 9th November I am not concerned. INV is pretty transparent and if material they would have said so I believe.

Good rise in NAV today and as usual concise and informative(...pasted below!)
But the last sentence is "interesting"!

Chairman's Statement

To the surprise of many commentators Stock Markets around the world have in general experienced rising trends in recent months. Anxiety about the problems of countries in the Eurozone has waned as a result of more forceful action from the European Central Bank and the knuckling under of debtor nation Governments to the austerity demanded by creditor countries. Fears of a slow-down in China recur from time to time and cause volatility in some commodity prices but in general fears, in the short-term at least, have proved exaggerated.

In America the re-elected President is faced with serious economic problems and how they are addressed will probably be influential in the short term direction of US Stock Markets.

Against this background your Company's assets have appreciated usefully with the net asset value per ordinary share rising from 315.6p at 31st March (audited) to 357.5p at 30th September (unaudited). After the exceptional income receipts of the previous year to 31st March 2012, revenue in the six months to 30th September 2012 is lower partly due to accounting treatment of accrued interest. A greater proportion of your Company's revenue arises now in the form of interest rather than dividends as the balance of our portfolio has swung away from preference shares, several large holdings being redeemed and replaced by interest-bearing loans and bonds.

Your Board has Resolved to declare a maintained interim ordinary dividend of 2p which will be paid on 21st December 2012 to ordinary shareholders registered on 23rd November 2012. The ordinary shares will be quoted ex dividend on 21st November 2012. The half-year basic preference dividend of 3.5p will be paid on 1st April 2013. The amount of the participation dividend, in addition to the half-year 3.5p basic payment, paid to the preference shareholders on 1st October 2012 was 1p (0.75p in 2011) but the total amount payable on 1st October 2013 will not be known until the total ordinary dividend for the current year is determined.

I have commented before on the diminishing number of preference issues available at attractive prices for purchase to include in the Company's portfolio. With the general recovery of confidence in the prosperity of the banking sector in the United Kingdom (just one year ago the Chairman and several directors of Lloyds Banking Group announced their personal purchases of ordinary shares at 22p which at the time of writing could now be sold at 44p!) our largest holdings are all standing at or above par. This is a circumstance with which we find ourselves less comfortable than when market prices are way below par values. We are therefore continuing to investigate possible developments which we believe will be attractive to shareholders.

Sir David Thomson Bt.
Chairman

Hello Zorija/others
Thank you for setting up this thread, although I am not a totally new investor I am still a novice/newbie.
I am puzzled sometimes by the market opening with some shares already way above the previous close, at present I use halifax sharedealing for all buying and selling and I am aware that I can place an order to get a best price or limit order.
but it appears to me that there is sometimes a lot of buying going on before the market opens.
is there a way that I can benefit from a very good rns and buy or sell before market open?
what's the secret

I agree ken - when I get the calculator out and admire the result then that's the time to sell.

Some reading material thanks to JTC...


here are some books I'd recommend:

CATEGORIES:

Investment Strategy:
Security Analysis - Benjamin Graham (HEAVY READING This is the old testament from the 'Dean of Wallstreet')

The Intelligent Investor - Benjamin Graham (HEAVY READING The New Testament)

Value Investing Made Easy - Janet Lowe (Easy read to see if you agree with the strategy)

The Rediscovered Benjamin Graham - Janet Lowe (Easy read with some late interviews that were interesting. I like this book.)

The Warren Buffett Way - Robert G. Hagstrom (Easy read and interesting examples of some of WB's great investments)

Buffettology - Mary Buffett and David Clark (An interesting slant on things. Easy Read)

The Essays of Warren Buffett - Warren E. Buffett (From the annual reports of his company Berkshire Hatherway. Fascinating).

Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits - Phillip A. Fisher (Regarded as an investment classic. Fisher was one of the greatest growth stock investors. Buffett says he's 85 % Graham and 15 % Fisher, which is a real compliment).

One Up On Wall Street - Peter Lynch (Peter has a gift for making it all sound simple. I think this book extols the benefits of understanding brands).


Management:
The Real Warren Buffett - James O'Loughlin (Buffett is so much more than an investor. What he has created in the management structure and culture of Berkshire Hathaway is truly unique).


Fraud:
The Smartest Guys In The Room - Bethany McLean and Peter Elkind (How it can all go wrong. The ENRON scandle. (A riveting read. You couldn't make this up).


Accounts: Interpreting Company Reports and Accounts - Geoffrey Holmes and Alan Sugden


History:
The Great Crash 1929 - John Kenneth Galbraith (Easy read. I think it's important to understand bubbles, crashes and investment history statistics. It may stop you being panicked out of a sound investment one day or help you avoid investing during the later stages of a bubble cycle).

The BZW Equity-Gilt Study (Facts and figures going back to 1918 on Equities, Gilts and the Cost of Living Index. Great for looking at corelations).

The Death of Inflation - Roger Bootle (Bootle saw the change coming 10 years ago, while inflation was still raging. He's a genius economist imo).

A Very English Deceit - Malcolm Balen (The South Sea Bubble and an excellent account of how London's financial power house started in the early 1700's. Insurance companies and share traders in coffee shops, no less).
