You just beat me to it CW, belatedly realised, thanks. Out of interest just looking at where the UKX is trading atm and some of their main holdings this morning, we look overdue a decent day - if current market levels hold.

I would certainly buy a car - or an investment - from him, rather than from that "mysterious American" with the dark glasses....

Asmodes. Just watched the video. Big thanks. He seems like a nice chap. Would you buy a second hand car from him, yes I would.

Have been adding in small amounts under £4, 300 shares this AM. Hoping it will get down to 3.80 or below. There really is a lot of info on this investment trust online, so a case of DYOR as always.

Harvister. Worth putting on your watch list. Have a good history of dividend Payments, 30 + years. Of cause things can change.

If you search for Merchants Trust on google you will be taken to their website where the information is available. I cannot believe I had to type that in 2016.

verynice: have put this non my watch list for now. Dividend only just covered by earnings. Before investing, I would want to know the composition in % of the underlying investments. Where can I find that info ? MRCH looks like tightly held and not very liquid to trade .

We just have to be brave and ride it out. All topsy-turvy these days. Hope dividend is safe.

EI, the yield on the underlying investments is boosted in 3 ways: the discount, gearing + the option writing.

RCT, on the yield at the current share price I am working on the basis of approx 5.5% HSBA, BP and GSK are big holdings. GSK will imv cut under the new CEO in '16, BP increasingly looks like cutting and the recent share price action indicates the market beginning to factor that in. HSBA will be lucky to maintain, RDSB should be OK. So for me 5.5% worst ways unless we are facing a rerun of 08', when admittedly MRCH did not cut, good to factor in all possibilities though.

The yield is over 6%, don't be greedy.

I'm hoping for 380's, may be wishful thinking, the UKX would need to be hit hard again for that price imv.
