Hi drectly,

Thanks for highlighting the Questor article. The number of trades today is well above normal daily average and I agree the article has probably pushed up the price.

I have been adding to my LWI holding since January as I like the long-term future prospects here. Very good discount to NAV, very good yield, and still under many investors radar. I will be adding further on price setbacks.

Hi, and Happy New Year.

Over the last few years my ISA has evolved from gambling on speculative ‘penny’ shares, to focusing on building a strong and growing income stream, first through FTSE 100 companies, and during the pandemic moving the portfolio 100% into Investment Trusts.

IT’s are the ideal investment for ISA’s and my intention is to construct a portfolio of about twelve Investment Trusts in total, and then add to those positions. (Buy, Build and Hold Indefinitely.) I was pleased to recently read that a high proportion of ISA millionaires have Investment Trusts in their portfolios. After 7 years since my first IT purchase, I can see why!

My current portfolio comprises:
10,000 AAIF (Abdrn Asian Income)
20,000 DIG (Dunedin Inc. Growth)
15,000 EDIN (Edinburgh Investment Trust)
5,000 HFEL (Henderson Far East)
25,000 LWI (Lowland Investment Company)
10,000 MRCH (Merchants Trust)
3,000 MYI (Murray International Trust)
Cash < 1%

In the 22-23 tax year my main addition has been Lowland Investment Company, where I now hold 25,000 shares. The valuation is currently £29,937, slightly below book cost of £30,859. The high dividend payout at LWI is now covered, so in the next year or so it should be able to rebuild the dividend reserves it dipped into as a result of the pandemic.

Ironically, the investment I am most troubled by is HFEL. It was my first IT purchase and sits at a £721 paper loss. The dividend looks too high, so I will not be adding further. For the moment I will continue to hold, but it may turn out to be the exception to the rule and I might eventually replace it.

Below is my ISA valuation on Dec 31st with dividend income for the calendar year. Due to the timing of xd purchases, even without further additions income should be over £14,000 in 2023.

(£) ISA valuation: (£) Income
2015: 113,980......... 4,450
2016: 156,795..........7,293
2017: 186,636..........9,619
2018: 193,414.........10,124
2019: 242,159 ........12,557
2020: 221,475.........10,560
2021: 285,587.........12,002
2022: 315,241.........13,377

I am now witnessing the magic of compounding and although the last few years have been a bumpy ride, 2023 should see a strong uplift in dividend income.

I have started my search for my 2023 ISA investment, with more candidates than usual. I will decide at the start of April, but several areas look to offer real value. Inflation, interest rate outlook, the conflict in Ukraine and the reopening of China will all be deciding factors.

Wishing all on the IT boards at ADVFN a very happy and prosperous New Year.

Glad to see the Edison research note on LWI published this morning, confirming my own views on this company. I purchased an opening position in LWI a couple of days ago, from my list of 3 Investment Trusts I shortlisted for possible inclusion in my 22-23 ISA IT portfolio.

NAV of 945p with the buy price at 905p. It's no bargain.

Hmm, yes, the SNR chart is not a pretty sight.

Have been mulling over getting back into LWI again soon. It's had a torrid time over the last year or so, but the tide could be about to turn.

James Henderson going through a difficult patch atm.

Another blow for him yesterday on the Senior PlC statement.

Having lauded the investment case for SNR at the last LWI report.

Being a contrarian myself, I moved INTO Edinburgh after Neil's announcement about leaving IP, as it moved to a discount and there's no certainty that he will leave Edinburgh. However, i also agree that LWI is an excellent alternative an i'm in there too.

Well, I'm with you there and, having been disappointed to read of Neil Woodford's upcoming move from Edinburgh Trust, I'm thinking of selling that (hitherto) core holding and splitting the proceeds between Lowland, Diverse Income & Temple Bar. Just waiting for a break-even price on Edinburgh.
