https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-12-16/pilots-who-fly-amazon-planes-suggest-company-might-not-deliver Am still wary here. Seems the pilots are fighting back with Amazon's conditions. With articles like the above I am waiting to see which way the chart goes it could go either way I think. In contrast to the above I see that Amazon did its first drone drop on the 7th . Of course this company is not just about that firm but as I say am interested but cautious so will not get back in just yet.

QP Thanks very much for that. Very helpful. CGI at 4.1% sounds fine to me and a discount of 32% is just too big to last in the long term, even if the trust is a kind of disguised Family Office. All seems a bit similar to Hansa Trust, which also has a controlling family involved and has a huge discount. About 25% last time I looked. It's seems to me that the risks to the UK going forward are being underestimated, and that a 'Hard Brexit' of some kind is really very possible. So I'm looking for ways of minimising exposure to the UK. CGI fits with that strategy.

galeforce1 - Is there a catch on CGI. Yes, there is one which hasn't been mentioned....the family management group control CGI, so it has always been a bit of a value trap as the managers are in effect being paid to manage the family assets; and they have a different agenda to outside shareholders. Hence very parsimonious with the dividend; AND NO DISCOUNT CONTROL MECHANISM. There are times when the discount becomes excessive and tempting. A turn can then be made provided the currency doesn't move against you. Impossible to deal in any meaningful way in the LSE-listed CGI. You have to do so in Canada; and pay excess fees to do so. All in all.....value at times....but not quite the plain sailing it appears.

QP Thanks for that. I also have some MPO & JRS. MPO only in a small way. Good luck and DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!

Que Passa - I'd never heard of Canadian General Trust. Thanks for the suggestion. If it's biased towards resources it perhaps makes a good pair with growth-focused SMT. Looks very interesting. Assets £740m. Discount a huge 32%. Gearing 17%. Yield 3.4%. Seems almost too good to be true. Is there a catch somewhere?
