All well and good QP, but the p/e of Amazon and other big tech stocks is getting ever-more eye-watering. And despite the many geo-political threats around, market volatility as measured by the VIX sits at three year lows. Very odd, and it all smacks of investor over-confidence.James Anderson is a fantastic manager, so I hope he is building up cash in case of a big market set-back. Others I trust, such as Gervaise Williams and 7IM, are tippy-toeing to the sidelines. I'm starting to do the same.
Indeed. Why do ITs like ScoMo try to avoid trading at a premium? It seems as though investors are being prevented from benefiting from the full extent of a rise in the growth of stocks held within their IT, whereas the fund manager doesn't lose out. The fund grows by issuing new shares instep with the growth of the underlying stocks, whilst the investor is diluted by the issue of these new shares? Is there something wrong with my line of thought? Do such funds buy back previously issued shares in the event the underlying stock growth stalls or reverses; would there be a reverse policy for when ScoMo trades at a discount? Have I answered my own question? But would they have the wherewithal to buy back when trading at a discount?
Got there tonight QP!
Cheers QP for the link, I also see it gets a buy recommendation in todays TIMES alongside an informative write-up el Don
QuePassa, thanks for all your posts but as just an ordinary PI, do you rate these as decent buy for the long term, your comments would be much appreciated, cheers el Don
When is the next announcement scheduled ?TIA
Agree with your view on the issuance of further treasury shares to manage the premium over net asset value Qua Passa. Let the market do its job! People will soon learn!

Just how much money do the ScoMo team have invested in the Trust? There is a fascinating article in the same publication headed " Who has real skin in the game?". P.31 The article contains a table titled " The million-plus manager club" in which ScoMo appear in top position with the ScoMo Team having an astonishing £54.1m invested. - That's a really large wedge of money. By random comparison the Scottish Oriental Team are shown as having a collective £2.3m invested. Always excellent to see the Managers having real skin in the game. Adds a lot of confidence. ALL IMO> DYOR. QP
" SMT is head and shoulders above its peers not only in terms of long-term performance but also size with net assets of £4.5bn" High praise for ScoMo and justly deserved in my opinion in the excellent monthly publication Money Observer. New edition May 2017 . Article on page 10 of accompanying supplement. Interesting graph headed " Outstripping its GLobal Peers" gives comps between ScoMo's performance and 1) Foreign Colonial and 2) Global Sector Average. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP
