The current structure gives the equity enormous gearing. If UTL think the market is toppy; sell something.

Apart from the good NAV performance, what really matters is that a bunch of directors and fund managers buy regularly and buy big, often in 85,000 and 100,000 shares a time. That shows real confidence in its current value and its future performance.

Annual report is out (to June 30th): Https://www.uil.limited/index.php/download_file/view/286/145/ Same for UIL Finance, but nothing much happening here by design: Https://www.uil.limited/index.php/download_file/view/285/158/ Very enthusiastic report, everything seems to be flashing green. As usual, careful selection of time frames and use of "total return" flatter the review; but sarcasm aside, this has been a pretty good year indeed for the company. I like the fact that they mention the reduction in debt/gearing a lot this time, the subject used to be at best very muted before. Of course they mention it because it has moved in the right direction by a substantial amount, but still... The stupidly high see discount is deplored, but nothing can really be done about it. They shall now go easy on share buybacks to make sure they have enough liquidity by the end of October to redeem the last few ZDP 2018 they have not yet hoovered. The fees are still a bit high, at more than 2% after "adjustment" for the platorm approach; but then again, they do select imaginative stocks and can in no way be accused of shadowing a tracker. Despite having posted negative comments earlier this year, I am glad I was never tempted to click the SELL button. [UEM] There is an Edison report link posted on the UEM thread for those interested. UEM has been battered like most EMs stocks recently.

Afterpay coming to the UK having bought Clearpay this week. Share price for APT valued at 3 billion aus this morning ,another 5% increase, and behind most of the NAV increase as others pointed out.

It is doing very well indeed. As long as its value is doing well, its price will catch up. What I like is its underlying portfolio looks very good. apt is almost a ten bagger over the last two years. rsg is a low cost gold miner which provides some hedge for uncertain times. Others like pcf (somers owning it), zer/pan (owned by zer),ift all doing fine. Adding the bonus of recent large multiple purchases by two fund managers and regular buys by all the directors, all pointing in the right direction. I will keep accumulating until either the discount narrows significantly or the market has turned.

Pretty good progression for the NAV over the past month or so, it is now clocking at 338.20 p https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/uil-limited-UTL/share-news/UIL-Limited-Net-Asset-Values/78118480 Last week it was at 328.11 p https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/uil-limited-UTL/share-news/UIL-Limited-Net-Asset-Values/78077768 However the share price has been progressing painfully at best. Well, at least the NAV is safely holding above 300, which is already something. The ex-dividend date was announced recently, same as usual. I know "progressive" dividends are a gimmick for many an investment trust, but it would be nice to see a bit of change, even a mediocre 1% uptick from 1.875 to 1.9, would cheer things up.

This one is counter intuitive. It describes itself as value investing, is classified as "flexible investment" (whatever that means)... but it brings in more in dividend yield than most of the self described income stock. SpectoAcc likes to quip about it, but it does act as an income stock. The problem with the NAV is that F&C is paid to estimate it once a week. Very few of the UIL Ltd are Level 1, i.e. widely traded; most is Level 2 or 3. So the NAV calculation is kind of voodoo. I believe it is intrisically even higher than stated. Right now the engine for the NAV seems to be AfterPay-Touch. Resolute also seems pretty confident with the Syama mine, low cost, potential for heavy automation, etc. UIL Ltd has a lot of Resolute, directly and indirectly through Zeta. Gold is in the doldrums at the moment, things can only improve on that front... well I hope.

Thanks Vacendak. I have been accumulating this share over a year now, starting from about 155p, in my SIPP and my ISA. My latest buy was last week at 179.95 p. Things I like about this share are NAV performing ahead of the share price meaning value getting better and better, an over 4% dividend, regular multiple director purchases, diversification from UK market. I will hold as long as all these are still valid but will trade some if discounts ever narrows down to mid 20%as it is alarge position in my accounts. Good luck to all holders.

@ceaserxy Yep, but this one goes up in big bursts, then either drops for no reason or stagnates forever (lot of debt/leverage if one counts the ZDPs as debt, as they should)... then climbs up again, rinse and repeat. The last bout of fever was in 2016, likely due to Resolute. Then Resolute had some hiccups and we never saw 200p with UIL Ltd. I remember one of my divi being reinvested at 196p back then. Anyway, if you are in it for the long game, welcome to the club. If you plan to stay for a few months, good luck with timing the exit. Oh and the spread can get nasty at times. :)

NAV up 10% in a month, now near record level, really impressive performance. This is looking really good value at this price.

The result of the trial is news, but about old news with regards to the deed for AssetCo: Http://www.thisismoney.co.uk/money/markets/article-6036515/Directors-fire-engine-supply-firm-fined-500k-dodgy-accounting.html Since the directors were found guilty of lying to the auditors, I guess AssetCo is not getting any money from those auditors. According to the website, UIL Ltd hold about 20% of the company: Http://assetco.com/Investor-Relations/Shareholdings.aspx It says ICM, but I think they mean UIL Ltd.

Resolute mining director, very enthusiastic about Syama. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XVVmkI7nJ7o What he says sounds good, especially on costs. The problem remains that Syama is located in Mali, cannot do much about the security/stability issue. Syama is likely to be heavily automated due to the ease of extraction. And another video about PCF. UIL Ltd has a lot of it through Somers. Https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4dN3fh7zh8

NAV being back above £3 is certainly striking - have released a few on the way up but still in some. Hard to sell a divi payer on such a discount.

NAV up significantly, now nearly 300P. See through NAV must be north of 330p now. A good dividend, good NAV performance, large Dirs. buying and portfolio holdings like apt, rsg, ift all performing well. All look positive.

Yes, it’s a shame on the new investment trust, but happy following their other investments. Mr Saville is a good custodian and has lots of skin in the game. Bit of a Buffett character I presume, and enjoys his value investing. Why not? It’s surprising that they haven’t got their technology platform away yet, as they are pretty good on that side of things. They have set up the platform, but not yet managed to list it. They are definitely eclectic, but good for c10% per annum in my view.

Still in for the divi here, fwiw. Compensates for some opaqueness.

SP also goes up whenever I sell! Why Mr Saville needs to have so many companies remains a mystery. A quick look tonight and see ICM have failed to raise the money for their new fund at same time as these disclosures hxxp://www.hl.co.uk/shares/ipos-and-new-issues/utilico-global-income-plc ZETA also 'reorganised' in last month so Mr Saville 'controls' 91% of that via UIL and various other entities.

@Morton I no longer have the time to be much voluble nowadays but I still enjoy reading this thread. Sad to see you drop out. There weren't many shareholders to start with, now it will soon be down to Duncan and myself. :) Talking about Mr Saville and his fellow directors, they are buying again, as usual slabs of 50,000 shares. They may bleed the company with fees via ICM but they definitely have some skin in it, more than 64% of it in fact. Funny how they seem to always buy when the share price is on the way up. Unless I am mistaken then never appear to sell. Well, now that I have said it and jinxed it, expect a -10 correction next week. :(
