Well considering how well invested I am in SMIF it is to my shame that I missed this enhanced dividend announcement yesterday. Fancy splashing it out half way rather than loading it all on the final, something I usually add to my holding for, will have to rethink strategy.

Oh well, jam today, and I'm still expecting the final to be 1p+.

Dividend Announcement -

Given the ongoing interest rate environment the Directors have given careful consideration to the Company's projected income for the year balanced against their assessment of risks inherent in achieving its target dividend payment of 6 pence per share per annum. Based on this analysis the Directors believe that dividends payable in respect of the year ending 30 September 2024 are likely to be in excess of 6.5 pence per share, and consequently believe it is appropriate to pay an additional 0.25 pence per share, in addition to its regular monthly targeted dividend of 0.5 pence per share, for the period ended 31 March 2024.

A strong response in the price of underlying debt to signals from Europe (*) that inflation is heading in the right direction and interest rates must surely start to fall. I think SMIF is getting some momentum back and will be resuming its journey of recovery back to 90s.

Edit - * or whatever other signals are being used by those betting on where, when and how many interest rate cuts

Yes I think AJ Bell the best alternative, but will stay put with my ISA for now. AJ Bell confirm today that they have also been helping themselves unfairly to interest on client cash, told by the FCA to rein it in by an indicated £30 per customer a year. I suspect the behaviour at HL, and the throttle being applied, is much worse. If this is my only real beef with them worth watching how things unfold.

Meanwhile, and despite my positive outlook for SMIF, today I sold off the extra chunk bought in November at 73p for 80p. Nice quick gain and three dividends. A response to being taught a lesson by not banking gains at AIRE last week, where the share price has tumbled on a slightly disappointing CPI announcement. Now looking to take advantage of an undue discount on a high yielder, at LLOY or LGEN maybe, ahead of reporting and big dividend season.

Welcome arrival of the first dividend of the year. In AJB anyway. But not HL, yet again they fail to credit cash promptly going in to a weekend. It will be sitting nicely in one of their money-market accounts for an extra two or three days to their benefit. That the CMA and Treasury Select Committee are on to them for profiteering from "agency" over client cash, not passing on enough of the interest earned, has not stopped them playing greedy games. Too many times HL and too predictable for it to be accidental slow administration. I hope they get slaughtered by the review and given a public dressing down by the committee on TV.

Not everyone realises the extent of what they are up to, last year for example HL retained the equivalent of £150 per client from net interest on client cash. Way more than what they earn from declared fees. And they crowed about it (to their shareholders).

They are all at it of course. For example, AJB last pension instalment was deducted from my SIPP on the 8th but didn't appear at my bank until after close of play on the 13th. Using the dinosaur concept of non-working days and the quill-and-ink idea that a simple transfer needs up to 4 working days as an excuse to delay what should be an intraday electronic process. But I am sure that HL are the worst of the bunch and the least apologetic.

Hey ho, what do you do.

Meanwhile Santa answered my prayer and SMIF share price has indeed restored a small premium to NAV, even Numis happy to buy up the tendered stock on that basis knowing it will be able to offload them promptly at an even higher price. Long recovery still to come here, and it will come as confidence builds that interest rates will start being cut. We might not see the full 100p this year but I am hopeful of seeing the 90s again.

I can understand why there might be high demand for Barclays AT1 at 9.6%, and I hope SMIF have picked some up in view of its strategy to pivot towards higher quality debt at this stage in the cycle. Swiss AT1s no thank you!

Barclays raising capital because customers are starting to deploy their cash deposits? So why not pay your account holders a healthy savings rate!

Only baby steps so far but I get the idea that the prices of SMIFs underlying investments have bottomed and are starting to crawl back upwards, steady NAV progress would be very welcome indeed. That is surely the logical effect of a consensus view that base rates have topped out, it is when not if they will come down, and folks sharing SMIFs view that the economic landing will be "softish".

A strong share price performance today despite ex-div, helped by a late half-million trade at 73.8p presumably an institution, all very pleasing. A signal that, if only we could swing back to a modest premium, SMIF would be able to issue fresh stock and invest in such good opportunities.

Thanks spangle. I agree. With SMIF delivering record dividends there is indeed an opportunity cost of not being invested in high yield credit as inflation tumbles and the soft-landing scenario looks to be the likely outcome.

Parked some SIPP cash here today in the hope NAV and share price will steadily improve in the next few months. A certain 3-4% interest from the platform versus a probable 8-10% yield here, trickling in every month,

Is that a bit harsh? Criticising SMIFs total return over ten years while it is temporarily (!) at the bottom of a trough caused by the tripple whammy of increased uncertainty of defaults as interest rates have risen, Truss-Kwarteng suddenly making low-risk debt attractive on a risk-reward basis, and the recent CS AT1 default. It does not help that SMIF is primarily invested in finance sector debt where the pain is most acute.

To illustrate the consequence its major holding in Nationwide 10.25% notes has fallen from 160p+ to 120p-. But no-one is seriously expecting Nationwide to default, are they, in a scenario where economies suffer no worse than a shallow recession, employment rates are holding up, and where interest rates stabilise and then fall back?

Until recent events SMIF was still trading at a healthy premium and was expanding rapidly thanks to the availability of bargains and strong corporate investor demand. I imagine income performance to be excellent as a result.

In more normal times SMIF has typically traded around the mid-90s, you would make your money back in the first year. That said my holdings are underwater, and would be deeply loss-making on paper but for trading the average price down to around 80p.

If you had the umph to invest in SMIF in the low 70's what would you be saying about total returns in two or five years time when the share price has restored to the 90s? The unusual discount is inviting right now, you can buy some under 72p this morning which would otherwise be trading at 80p. An ideal get rich slowly scheme. I will continue to invest here as funds become available.

Interesting post @spangle93. I do not hold SMIF but I see that it launched in March 2014 so the majority of its existence has been during the ZIRP era which helped to inflate the values of its constituent holdings. This has obviously unwound fairly spectacularly over the past 12-18 months and, looking at its chart since launch, one can see that (ignoring the spike down at the onset of Covid), the worst of its share price (and presumably NAV) falls have occurred in sync with the rise of interest rates. Whilst I do not expect a return to the ultra-low interest rates of the past decade, once rates stabilise and maybe fall back a little, I suspect that the current NAV/share price will indeed prove to be fairly near the bottom of the current cycle. AIMHO

edit - I note that total returns (both NAV & share price) have been superior at TFIF over virtually all timescales

SMIFs direct exposure to CS, if any, will be less than 1% as has been discussed above. The point of the crash this morning is, however, that SMIF is heavily invested in junk-grade high yield in the European financial sector. The risk of these investments has increased in general terms even if SMIF doesn't hold cocos etc which are specifically at risk.

There has also been unreasonable derating of less risky investment grade bonds, perps etc and this is clobbering SMIF NAV. Or stretching further an already stretched discount in underlying holdings. Creating an exceptional buying opportunity in an already cheap market.

SMIFs response is superb. Call an EGM to get approval to issue another 20% more shares, having already issued a fresh 20% in the last year or so, to take advantage of increasing net margin opportunities. Institutional demand for SMIFs mostly safe stock paying 8% will be strong. Take your cue from management and hold your nerve.

Unfortunately it will take a while for the share price to recover but SMIF will be back on the path of steady improvement as soon as the panic settles down. Anyone here for the long term will not regret taking that rare chance to top up in the 60s.
