74tom: Yes I went looking for updated info on the Miton Value Opportunities fund 3 / The Diverse Income Trust, where LIT is held, however they haven't posted their accounts to 30th May yet. At of Feb 11th the Diverse Income trust held 3,456,573 shares which means that the value opportunities fund had to hold the remainder (2,045,077) to total 5,501,650. Both of these amounts are large enough to put the share price in reverse if being sold at best in the market, as opposed to another II. It's pleasing to see 600k volume today and there share price retaining the 1.08 support, hopefully not too much further to go until they are gone forever.

djderry: greenknight1 and pete_bane,you both use similar sentence structure, grammar and call people names in the hope of belittling their views,so I'll deal with your points together. I am not attacking LIT's accounting methods.I am pointing out that both Bur and LIT use different methodologies and neither is perfect.My point is that to claim one is superior to another,with no evidence to substantiate your view is just,well,an opinion. Putting out an RNS ,for the reasons I have already outlined in detail stands.Calling a poster names will not change that.Putting money into a case has a range of outcomes.What don't you understand about that? It's akin to a gambler at the roulette wheel announcing they have placed a bet on black. The comment regarding fair value warrants further consideration .If a criticism can be made,it could well be the one you make,ie,that because Bur is so conservative about its fair-valuing,that it could mislead an investor as to the subsequent outcome.I think if you look at their track record,it's very much no fair value increase ( apart from Petersen,sparked by secondary sales) until the final year or two,then ,on average,30% of the eventual realisation.If you are one who likes one's company to underpromise and overdeliver,then I'm happy enough with it. To the poster who suggested I've lost a lot of money,I think you are mixing up volatility ( share prices going up and down ) with risk ( ie,losing one's money).I haven't lost a penny.I have continued to purchase Burford shares.I am not advising anyone else to do so.But I have not lost a penny.I still have the shares ( and,as an aside, received almost €6000 euro in dividends recently).You see,as an investor,I'm a part owner of the company.I know what I've bought and why I've bought them. If you want to improve as investors I would be happy to suggest some books as a primer.If you are confused about volatility and risk,I would recommend 'Thinking in bets' by Annie Duke. Finally,try to act like adults.Stop the name-calling.Most of us grew out of it when we were in short pants.
djderry: And another thing,or two.This notion that an investment in a case is worthy of an RNS because it may materially affect the company is pretty far fetched.As with all single litigation matters,it is binary.It may be won,or lost,or settled with a range of outcomes.It may be 'a home run' or,an unmitigated disaster.And that warrants an RNS? So,from now on,when an employee shows up for work,we might expect an RNS? The truth is,we will only know the true outcome over time,perhaps years,perhaps much longer.( We all know the ' average' duration of cases but,on an individual matter,there is no such thing.) ( Not that I would encourage it,but if they were announcing a large portfolio financing arrangement,one might make a case for it warranting some kind of announcement,but hardly an RNS). Secondly,some poster alluded to the 'clean' accounting practices of LIT compared to Bur.You are wrong.Bur fair values and has never ( less than 1%)had to write down matters subsequently.In other words,they invariably underestimate their subsequent realised gains,to a substantial degree! Bur takes its expenses through the P and L, whereas LIT treats its litigation as a fixed contract ( with a static value) and capitalises its expenses,so we are left totally in the dark and you say that's ' clean' or somehow superior? I don't think so. So,to end,I began by making the point,LIT should not be announcing investments as an RNS.My point stands,for the reasons I have outlined. As an investor in LIT,I would welcome an announcement when the case comes to fruition,if it is material.

djderry: I'm not prepared to post under a header titled ' a newer freer (??) thread only for honest posters' so this will have to do.As an aside,I have all the idiots filtered but not the investors.You know who you are.As usual,all the caveats apply.I don't have a monopoly on wisdom,the shareprice tells you next to nothing about a company,etc,etc. I hold a 'watching brief' in LIT (single digit tens of thousands) and the share price is up 79%.I invested originally because I like the asset class and would have originally invested in Juridica.My core holding is Burford.My rationale for holding LIT is that,mostly,they seem to be following the Bur playbook and their UK branch is headed by a former Bur guy.They are much smaller and so one might speculate that some really good results could really move the needle. But it's more of a punt than an investment.Their cost of capital is quite high and the investment portfolio ,compared to Bur,is tiny.This notion of announcing investments in cases through an RSN is fairly bizarre.Imagine a footballer announcing ' I'm going to kick a ball.'As the Bard would say,' full of sound and fury,signifying nothing.As an investor,I need to be able to measure the metrics.They are revealed in the full year and interim results.I need to test their due diligence capacity and that can only be seen in the outcome to the cases.Of course,deployments can be seen as a proxy.But,unless I can get a sense of how the deployments are going ( as I can with Bur when I dig into their fair value gains,) LIT will have to remain in the ' watching brief' portfolio.
adamb1978: Hi Maddox That's a fair question. A company which can generate a 90% IRR or whatever it is and make a 2.35x turn on every $ invest should be rated extremely highly. They've historically traded on a P/NAV of around 2x, which isnt massively generous compared to those returns. I dont think the market really knows how to value LIT. I think LIT will need to further prove that they can generate the returns which they state over a longer period of time and perhaps then as the NAV swells the share price will skew up appropriately. Maybe they'll even begin to pay out a very high, regular yield or ongoing special divis and that will bring in a new range of investors? Either way I think as long as the business keeps performing, the value should gradually come through. Adam
maddox: Hi AdamB1978, I tend to think that LIT should be valued on a multiple of it's invested capital. Question is, when you can generate a return of 2.35x (long-term track record) what value would you put on LIT? Back of the envelope calc. LIT has c.£92m invested; LIT's current mkt cap of £127m, so LIT is currently valued at c. 1.35x its invested capital. Regards Maddox
74tom: Agreed, I laughed when he turned up with shades & a fake afro, but the quality of the content was excellent. @Jamesmith, I think you underestimate how challenging it is for most people to undertake proper research themselves. For one thing it takes a lot of time & secondly you have to know what you are looking for. Eg. it's not enough to look at LIT in isolation, you need to contextualise the investment case vs Peers (Omni Bridgeway was very useful to see how the Asset Management business can grow), and also be aware of the path that BUR followed. That's more than the majority can be bothered to read! I agree that the principle of blindly following is dangerous though, you just need to look at the Vox Markets Podcast to see how dodgy some of it is. From my experience, the good promoters talk about market cap ahead of share price, the shysters focus entirely on the share price...
