QuePassa Herald is probably rising due to the surge in price of IQE - SDV (you quote SDT, but I assume that you mean SDV) doing well to remain flat while FTSE is down 80 points.

Quepassa - I would like a reduction in the Herald discount as well, but considering the discount over the last 5 years, I see no real chance of it happening. The small cap trusts generally have done well (& better than Herald)over the last year or so, and discounts have narrowed but Herald does not pay a dividend and this, I think, is the main reason why Herald has remained where it is. As to your point re money flowing into Europe - Herald has very little outside the UK & US - so why should this money affect it? Publicity - Scottish Mortgage & Allianz make more noise and hence attract more attention so do better with their discounts. Perhaps you would explain a little more why you think the discount will narrow quickly?

A poster from another thread wrote this: "with a market cap of £736 million herald isn't far off making it into the ftse 250. JP Morgan indian trust is ftse 250 with a market cap of 785... so it only seems like a matter of time until we get there - that may decrease the discount..." Good point and further supportive evidence for a rapid and dramatic tightening of Discount to NAV. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

I like this Trust a lot. However, I have recently switched the majority of my holdings into Herald General Investment Trust (HRI) which is a much bigger Trust with approaching £1billion of assets and which is focused on the smaller cap Tech + Media sector with a good weighting in UK and North America and 10% Cash. This Chelverton smaller cap trust trades at a PREMIUM nowadays ( having a few years ago been at a whopping 20% ++ Discount ). For some reason which I cannot put my finger on - probably due to lack of profile and publicity and being off the radar- HRI still trades at a MASSIVE discount of 18% despite some excellent recent performance and a very good pedigree. With money flowing fast into Europe and with a great track-record of having increased shareholder money 10x since inception combined with a low management fee of 1%, in my opinion HRI looks totally undervalued by the market, if not misunderstood and mispriced. When I look at sector comparisons like SDT, Patience capital, Schroders' small cap funds, JPM smaller and even big-brother and Tech giant Scottish Mortgage, the discount on HRI looks totally out of whack with the rest of the market. Additionally, HRI have a share buy-back program and the cash to support it. For seekers of value and hunters of big discounts, it appears to me that at an inexplicable 18% discount-to-Nav that HRI has a great deal to offer. Personally, I see the discount ripe for very rapid compression. Good Luck All. ALL IMO. DYOR. QP

I've sold about 30% today - the share price is at a premium to NAV and thats normally shortlived. I'm also concerned at the general valuation of equities which I think is a bit stretched. No concerns about the trust and will look to add should a discount appear - the average over the last year is about 5% and has often been 10% or more.

Smaller companies may be the way forward for me. My largest holding anywhere is now Marlboroughs micro cap fund and that has done really well. Over a 10 year timeframe (when hopefully I will retire) I am hoping it will average 10% or more. This will be another long term hold too.

Having a decent run here. Looking at the historical NAV vs share price charts every year it seems that there is a chance to get in at a 10% discount. It's currently close to parity. Any thoughts on selling now and just trying to trade on the sentiment?

It has not really been the year of the smaller company. Although on a stock-picking basis, individual picks have done very well, like Avesco, up 225% on the year. But over time small companies collectively should continue to outperform. All leading research academics repeatedly demonstrate that over time smaller companies outperform larger companies. Good luck. QP

Thanks QP. This has done OK this year but nothing special. One of my least volatile holdings.
