I thought I was the only PI that held these! I used to look after the share certificates for this fund many years ago and have held them for nearly as long. Never once dropped the dividend though it was a bit close once or twice. It is not a bad way of trading the market as well, with the dividends to help you through the minor dips

Actually that's a good thought - don't have MRCH in my ISA as yet (I do have Neil Woodford though). B1

Fellow LT holder here too. Have in an ISA as my alternative FTSE tracker, the large & growing dividend being the obvious additional attraction.

Yep a nice dull share that cranks out a good solid divi.

Nice core holding in the portfolio that just keeps churning out the steadily rising dividends, although it looks like the 24.00p that I had pencilled in for the current FY will not be met. Possibly 23.80p?

Half Yearly Report - HTTP://www.investegate.co.uk/merchants-trust---mrch-/rns/half-yearly-report/201409241257425037S/ "The board has declared a second quarterly dividend of 5.9p per ordinary share, payable on 11 November 2014 to shareholders on the register at close of business on 10 October 2014. The total distribution declared for the first half of 2014/15 is 11.8p net, maintaining the same payment compared to the first half-year dividends paid last year. As at 31 July 2014, the Trust's revenue reserve, after deducting the first and second interim dividends, represented 13.2p per share (2013 - 13.5p)."

Can anyone recommend a peer to MRCH (investment trust) which offers an attractive yield?

The talking heads on various channels are predicting some volatility in Q1 and Q2 of 2014 - The inevitable reduction in QE will not be wonderful for equities so maybe now is the time to hold a fund like Merchants if they can continue to offer a good yield.

still offers a good steady yield at just under 5% payable quarterly so a good share to have in isas offering a good income with good chance of capital growth over the medium term

there are a lot of people who hold this share in isas as it is a consistent dividend payer and should also show growth as markets improve .

For what it`s worth I like it! Was reading an article which stated about them investing in a broad range of FTSE100 companies.....bought today at 377 purely for the yield. One for the retirement fund.

This is a nice little earner and with a fair bit of capital growth too.

Yes, little point investing much in small caps when the blue-chips are this cheap.
