Nice little director buy, a NED buying £6,000 worth. Price approaching the level reached in early 2020, which was the highest in a decade.

Final div maintained at 4.2p, payable 30th July. So full year unchanged, which is fine in the current situation.

An update from our investment manager, Iain Pyle - 18 January 2021 December drew to a close one of the most volatile and challenging years any of us can remember, for investing as well as for our day to day lives. As we enter 2021 the current situation remains difficult. The level of cases of Covid-19 in many countries is reaching new highs and restrictions on personal mobility are increasing again. Despite that, the roll out of vaccination programs offer a hope that this will be a temporary impact and that the new year will be one of recovery. Markets are clearly taking this view, with a strong finish to 2020 followed by a stronger start to 2021. There are good reasons for this optimism. Global macroeconomic policy is as consistently expansionary as it has ever been. Massive stimulus and low interest rates should allow an increase in government and corporate spending, while the rise in consumer savings rates means people have more money in their pockets to spend. Of course, for this to come through in higher economic activity relies on them having the ability to get out there and spend it. If restrictions are lifted by the end of the year, however, we should expect to exit the year in a recovery scenario, with consumer demand coming back, corporate investment increasing and low inventory levels driving a period of restocking across sector to meet demand. The path from here to there remains uncertain, as highlighted by the new variations of the coronavirus appearing at the moment. And while vaccines are highly likely to work against these variations it is not a certainty, so some caution is warranted. Shires has attempted to strike a balance between value and growth in our investments in the last year, while sticking to our preference for quality companies that can be winners over the long term. The approach will continue to be based on bottom up stock picking rather than trying to predict macro trends. However, the outlook of a cyclical recovery combined with dividend resumption for many companies provides many opportunities to find attractive sources of income and capital growth in 2021.

Q2 dividend maintained at 3p, plus the next Q3. Final div amount to be decided when assessing full year results. Company notes good level of reserves and cautiously optimistic outlook for income stocks.

Final dividend maintained at last year's level, 4.2p, giving 13.2p for full year. A good result for investors here given the uncertainties and suspended dividends from individual companies elsewhere. Intention also to stick to next three quarterly dividends of 3p, same as previous Q1 to Q3.

Yes when you see that its sister fund ASCI is trading about 10%+ below NAV the premium is surprising, so I've swapped.

Been largely wrong on this one, long since out, but find it extraordinary that it can trade at a premium (let alone par).

I took a small turn on my last lot and not holding atm, Ed Beal is no longer the manager here, he was responsible in large part for a transformation of their holdings. I was out of the market during the financial crisis, but did read back some of the old annual reports before buying, and it was very significant gearing to preference shares that killed performance. With net gearing at around 20% currently, it's too high for my liking late in a bull market.

Yes, interesting that. Long term record is poor. They got caught out with excessive gearing of about 50% in a bear market when run by Glasgow Investment Managers. Happy to have a small holding with Aberdeen running it.

LOL, thanks topvest, though today's "great Price" often looks like a " bought way too soon" price in a few week's time! Time will tell......

I've added some as well, but not at your great price of 242p!

FWIW LG, I took a handful at 242 earlier, respectably inside the spread at the time. No problem getting them at that point. Agreed that the wider market malaise will probably go some way to cancelling out any "pref bump" though!

Yes, that's what I was looking at, CWA1. Could have been a smart way to play it. Problem is that any advance due to the re-rating of prefs has been wiped out by the general market decline. Can't even get a quote at 244p. Haven't got L2, so I can't see what the market is looking like.
