Tried to buy some sub shares this morning, quote way overpriced at 27p! If I was offered 27p to sell this morning I would grab with both hands!

Agree with lenses about the register date and the effect of a sale. Subscription shares usually trade at a premium to the existing share price so I would expect them to open at about 10 p. I don't think they will affect the ordinary share price too much - NASDAQ, premium/discount to NAV will be much more important. Rogoff seems to be calling things correctly so I hope the premium will remain

Entitlement to bonus shares goes to those on the regiser - ie direct or nomonee owners - on 10/2/11. Bonus subsciption shares (subs - they behave like warrants) will be inderpendantly traded as of 14/2/11, selling the underlieing shares after 10/2 will not affect the rights attached to the subs. IMO I would buy the subs after giving them a few weeks to settle.

All clear now. Many thanks Jimcar.

I take it to mean you will get 1 new subscription share for every 5 existing shares you hold (200 subscription shares if you hold 1000 ordinary PCT shares). Within the next year you will be able to convert the subs to ordinary shares by paying 381p + 5% i.e approx 400p. Whether you would want to would depend on the price of the ordinaries (obviously it would not be worth it at an ordinary price of 390 say) and the price the market puts on the subscription shares (eg. if the subs were 15p and the ords were 402 rather than convert the subs at 400p, it would be better to sell them for 15p buys some ords in the market for 402). After year 1 to convert you will have to pay 381 + 25%

I have had a letter from Selftrade about the PCT bonus issue but I can't get my head round it. Can anyone explain in words of one syllable what the bonus issue is all about. Is it something which will happen automatically or do you have to opt in or out? Apologies for being a bit thick!

When people buy the bonus shares (they will have a conversion price NAV + x%)it will increase the size of the fund and presumably the managements fees as these are usually related to size of funds under management (often 1 or 2%)

Does anyone have a view as to the bonus share issue? What is the rationale behind the company doing this?

Take a look at HRI, big discount to NAV. DYOR NO ADVICE

Anyone watching these or who likes VCT type investment should probably look at PEQ too.

RTTS are the subscription shares of RTT. If you buy RTTS now at 55p, you will be able to convert them into RTT on 28Dec2012(exercise date) at a price of 267p. So were RTT to rise by 8%pa till exercise date, you get a return of almost 20%pa on RTTS. Yes, PCT has performed better than RTT, but if Tech shares continue to rise at say more than 5%pa, PCT would have to perform almost twice as well as RTT( very unlikely, I think ), to beat the return on RTTS.

Mangal -What is the difference between RTTS and RTT ? Also, I'm surprised what you say about the gearing because PCT has performed better since the beginning of the year.

If you like the tech sector then you may like to consider subscription shares of RCM Technology Trust, which has similar remit to Polar Capital but would give you a gearing of over 5 times.

Yep agree with you. I've got some of these tucked away.

This has been a stellar performer. Has exposure to US tech stocks which offer far better value than their UK counterparts.

Trading at nearly 10% discount to NAV. Ben Rogoff leads the managers and they are relatively clued up.Ex Henderson tech. Has good exposure to large US tech stocks,which offer far greater values than anything U.K side,where people are paying p/e's of over 50 for some tech stocks!!! In the USA the likes of IBM Apple are nearer a p/e of 10! The sector should outperform this year. The shares have entered an uptrend. Also not a bad hedge against a collapse in sterling.

Interesting to see net asset value is 170.19 with a share price of 130p thereby giving a discount of 23.6%. For a portfolio of Nasdaq 100 companies that is a pretty steep discount even in this market!! Maybe time to accumulate?
