tonytyke2: Apologies...….I did mean MTU.
speedsgh: from IC John Baron's Investment Trust Portfolio... HTTPS:// Portfolio changes During the first half of the month, Chelverton UK Dividend Trust (SDV) was sold in the Growth portfolio, as was Acorn Income Fund (AIF) in the Income, and both were replaced by Montanaro UK Smaller Companies (MTU)... ...MTU had drifted to an 18 per cent discount when bought courtesy of lacklustre performance over recent years. Speaking with Charles Montanaro, a number of factors now warranted support. These include an investment process focused on choosing quality companies, the return of Charles as the lead fund manager, a reassessment of the portfolio including an increased emphasis on Alternative Investment Market (Aim) stocks, and the introduction of a new dividend policy equating to a yield exceeding 4.8 per cent when bought...
biggest bill: The company is taking no steps whatsoever to address the huge discount (over 21% today) at which mtu trades. This is the biggest discount in the smaller companies sector. The discounts of other smaller companies have fallen significantly over the last 18 months but mtu's discount has stayed stubbornly high. The company has a number of options to reduce the discount: 1. Convert to a unit trust or oeic. 2. A tender offer to buy back some shares at say a 5% discount to nav. This will increase the nav for the remaining shares and allow investors to get out at a decent price. 3. Announce that they will set a maxiumum target for the discount of say 10% by buying shares in the market and cancelling them. This will also increase the nav for the remaining shares. If you think the company will take any of these steps, the shares are a raging buy. The shares are probably a buy anyway if the discount shrinks close to the average for smaller company investment trusts. This might actually happen anyway because of reversion to the mean.
m_p_h: Thanks for this info, I have just run that MTU file and my system seems to be running quicker (noticable on L2 windows refresh)
boyse: BT Wholesale have developed an MTU ADSL performance tweaker that will enable any customers who use Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP and NT systems to easily modify the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) to 1458 bytes on the ADSL interface whether it's via a USB modem or an Ethernet Network Interface Card. Early results have shown that if customers utilise the tool it results in improved network performance for them.
boyse: ZenADSL MTU ADSL performance tweaker I can recommend This . This is a must if you have a Network ! Fragmentation is the result of IP packets, larger than the 1500 byte maximum attempting to the pass across the network. The MTU tool enables users of Microsoft Windows based operating systems, to improve their network performance. By modifying the MTU to a setting suitable for the network, the MTU can be lowered to stop fragmentation, thereby improving the perceived performance of the network. This setting is nominally 1458 bytes. The change is made to the ADSL interface whether it's via a USB modem or an Ethernet Network Interface Card. Test your speed on this site . fourth box on left (click speed test) Then install MTU and see the increase in speed You have to reboot ! for non bt customers !
zzaxx99: Hmm - just come back after a couple of weeks away - these seem to have taken a right kicking, and have been well and truly broken down out of their previous range. Do you know if there is a specific reason for MTU doing this, or a general following down of the market?
arichard: I do indeed follow ITs in some detail, particularly from the short-term relative discount point of view. Know nothing at all about charts, so am very happy to exchange news and views with someone of your knowledge. Don't hold any smaller companies ITs at the mo but always scan through every IT in every sector every week to catch any anomalous discounts. Jupiter Primadona, EFS and DRE are three of my current favourites, however have yet to act on any of them. I'll keep an eye on MTU for a while now to see how the chart performs. The up/down range certainly shows a trading range so I guess there's currently no real reason to assume it won't continue to trade within it. These days, a 15% gain in 2-3 mths is not to be sniffed at...
zzaxx99: I've not really thought through the discount to NAV issue, which is one reason why I'm a little wary. My interest in MTU came about purely from spotting the chart a couple of months ago - on a chart basis, EFS seems to have just pulled up (slightly) from a death spiral, which doesn't greatly encourage me - been in enough death spirals recently to last me a lifetime. Do you follow Inv Trusts generally, or have a specific interest in these ones? ITs are an area I've looked at briefly a couple of times, and am getting interested again, mainly from a charts viewpoint, at the moment.
