Can't say I'm chuffed with Susan selling SHD down from 6.4% to 3.0% and driving its shares to a 30% discount from 10%!

Discount tends to grow as markets fall and gearing accentuates the fall as well so it was likely to fall faster just like it is likely to rise more quickly. I know what you mean about the new management, though.

Stopped tracking the FTSE250 in mid Jan and has dropped 20% when compared to that benchmark.. Also earnings per share are quoted as 10p on balance sheet - yet divi is 20p Much preferred them when the Jocks, who I trusted, ran them from Glasgow - rather than this lot.

Seem to have a seller bringing discount into line with normal. Considerable exposure to financials is hitting quite hard. Most people buy here for dividends. It will very likely be cut but it would probably have to be cut by over 1/3rd to justify the fall. The last statement comments that some dividends have increased despite so many cuts but we live in unusual times. Who knows?

Interesting. I can imagine a Wednesday ex-dividend taking until Monday to register given Thursday is closed. Shares Mag still has 31st as ex-dividend.

Looks like they changed it again: The following amendment has been made to the Second Interim Dividend announcement released on 17 November 2008 at 17:22 under RNS No 3352I: The record date for the second interim dividend is 5 January 2009 and not 2 January 2009 as previously quoted.

In which case the interest will be negative at some point next year. Does that mean that the lenders have to pay the company? That would be a first :-))

Principal Risks and Uncertainties The main risks the Company faces from its financial instruments are: (i) market price risk (comprising interest rate risk, currency risk and other price risk), (ii) liquidity risk, and (iii) credit risk. The Group's gearing comprises both long and short-term borrowings. It has in issue an Index-Linked Debenture on which the interest payable and the capital sum to be repaid on maturity are linked to the Retail Price Index. Short-term borrowing from banking institutions is also used and bears interest at floating rates. The profile of financing costs is managed as part of overall investment strategy. The employment of gearing magnifies the impact on net assets of both negative and positive changes in the value of the Company's portfolio of investments. The Company has minimal exposure to foreign currency risk as it holds only a small amount of foreign currency assets and has no exposure to any foreign currency liabilities. So, perhaps it's this ? "It has in issue an Index-Linked Debenture on which the interest payable and the capital sum to be repaid on maturity are linked to the Retail Price Index"

Yes, it does... and though highly geared they also hold lots of various kinds of bonds and prefs which ought not to have been as volatile as the equity market... The may have breached a borrowing covenant or just having a major holder selling..I guess we'll find out later! I'd be surprised if they hold the divi but hope they can still pay out 15P or so... I also much prefered SHRS when they really were Shires and run in Glasgow ... you could have rung them and they would have explained what was happening...

Maintained dividend on improved cashflow but: Dividends A maintained first interim dividend of 4.4p per share was paid on 31 October 2008. It is proposed that a second interim of 4.4p be paid on 31 January 2009. The Company pays a high dividend yield and the Manager monitors dividend generation carefully. To date, the portfolio has experienced a number of dividend cuts; however, it is also the case that some companies have continued to increase their payouts. Dividend cuts are likely to become more frequent next year as companies face harsher economic conditions. The Board will continue to monitor closely the revenue account and keep the dividend policy under review given the changing business environment.
