exotic: Bit of a surprise to see VOF and VEIL close down -0.6% and -0.7% respectively today, while both NAVs increased, the VNI closed up +1.13% the previous session and +1.72% last night, setting another new stock market all-time-high. Nothing to sweat over of course; it's a long journey.
dickbush: I'm not complaining, but after today's market decline of 0.7% I'm surprised that VOF is unchanged following yesterday's big rise. Assuming market performance today, VOF's discount to NAV is 15.5%.
lageraemia: I must say I'm really comfortable with holding VOF right now..... Vietnam is aurguably a much lower risk geopolitically than the 'main' markets, and demographically its a diamond, with little to drive its younger population to emmigrate. The market is on a sensible PE, they produce things and there's a big discount to NAV for VOF. Holding for the win and adding on dips!
digitaria: VOF seems to have recovered from a period during which its NAV discount was languishing down at almost 25%. Don't understand what happened there, since the other Vietnam trusts seemed to rerate. VOF discount now at 19% or so. Historically, it was more like 15%. I topped up yesterday, as the market looked buoyant, but this did not seem fully reflected in the share price. Looks good for the medium term.
ceaserxzy: This used to trade at a lower discount than vnh but it is now on a much higher discount than vnh. On this basis I have switched out of vnh into vof.
kenmitch: Buying back shares will either reduce the discount temporarily or not at all. The reason the Vietnam Trusts continue to trade at a big discounts is continuing lack of awareness by so many UK investors big and small of the huge investment opportunity Vietnam is and has been for a good while. If that ever changes the 3 Vietnam Trusts will see their discounts reduce or even go to a premium. Meanwhile for those of us who have woken up, all 3 Vietnam Investment Trusts are great places to invest, with arguably right now VOF the best of the 3 because of recent underperformance compared with VEIL and VNH which is partly because of the number of private Companies held by VOF and the widening discount. VOF in particular looks a screaming buy imo.
dpmcq: For Information - As Chinese markets continues their collapse, driven initially by the heavy-handed treatment of technology stocks by the authorities and more recently by a collapse in overleveraged property stocks, investors seeking for better alternatives in Asia should look at Vietnam. VinaCapital Vietnam Opportunities Fund (VOF) is a good way to invest in the market. Previously regarded as a ‘frontier̵7; market, Vietnam has recently been upgraded to emerging status by MSCI as it treads the same well-worn path to prosperity as other Asian countries like Taiwan and South Korea. Thanks to the pace of technological change, the transformation of Vietnam from frontier to emerging and ultimately developed market is likely to be much quicker. Half of the population of 97 million people is under 35 years of age, and as this cohort joins the expanding middle class over the next five to 10 years the potential for economic growth is vast. The country has attracted strong direct investment from companies in China and around Asia as well as from the US and Europe. According to the World Bank the economy is expected to grow by 4.8% this year, although this is two percentage points lower than originally estimated as government measures to contain Covid have hit consumer spending. While vaccinations have been accelerated, Vietnam has the strictest lockdown measures in South East Asia with all nonessential businesses shut in the capital Ho Chi Min City. This pause in growth, and in the sharp rise of the Vietnamese market since March last year, is an opportunity for investors to get on board before the next leg up in 2022 when the economy is expected to resume its prepandemic growth rate of 7%. VinaCapital Vietnam Opportunities Fund mainly invests in companies which are geared to domestic growth and the rise of the middle class, for example property companies and consumer goods producers. As well as quoted stocks, the fund is plugged into unlisted companies and private equity opportunities. It has benefited from the move from private to public in various holdings, creating substantial gains. Shareholders are also getting dividends, with a 2.1% historic yield. Despite generating more than double the returns of the MSCI index over the last five years, the shares are trading at a discount of more than 20% to their net asset value, which is more a reflection of investor nervousness towards Asia and emerging markets in general rather than a judgement on Vietnam or the fund. The ongoing charge is 1.72%, higher than most global funds and reflecting its specialist skills in finding opportunities in the country.
johnwig: Here's my take on all this. VEIL and VOF have been super shares for me. Some I had before Covid, others, most, I bought after March last year. Of course Covid has had a horrendous effect on everbody's life, and stock exchange movements have been extremely disturbing. However, specifically with Vietnam investment trusts, what we have is a secular investment in the fortunes of one country. This is a country rising up from some horrific circumstances. Don't forget that the market is still classified as a Frontier Market. There are several assumptions that we have to make, not least that the securities held in both trusts represent a broad spectrum of the country's fortunes, its economy as a whole, and that the character of its people is as generally portrayed: worky and ingenious. There are other assumptions too. However, if you can be hard-headed and hard-hearted, long-term in purely investment terms Covid should have very little effect on VOF and VEIL. It's fruitless to bicker about daily statistics. They don't in this context really matter. We have to assume that Covid will pass eventually for the whole world and that the rewards for hard work and ingenuity will accrue. A classic investment case. I have deliberately not mentioned the political complexion of the current regime. For many its basically authoritarian bent is anathema. I share some fastidiousness. My own view, for what it's worth, is that the veritable material success of its people will soften regime attitudes. It's already happening...
hydrogen economy: The lift up in NAV yesterday may be due to Hao Phat Group. Their dividend was paid on 31st May, 35% total, 20% as shares. VOF HPG holding is over 20% so that gave quite a lift. The very high dividend reflects a big rise in production whilst margins have risen a lot. They also made a significant acquisition of an Australian iron ore mine. Iron ore prices have been at record highs so unclear if that will be a good purchase. Vietnamese companies have in the past made some ill-advised overseas investments, hopefully this will not turn out the same. The HPG holding is very high as the share price has tripled in the last 12 months, I guess VOF will have limits on single holding so may offload some.
dpmcq: From a recent Shares Magazine Article - WHILE THE DISCOUNT on the VinaCapital Vietnam Opportunity Fund (VOF) has narrowed in from a 17.7% 12-month average to 11.1%, we see scope for strong risk-adjusted returns from its differentiated mix of listed and private investments in Vietnam. The only one of its Vietnam trust peers to pay a dividend, an ongoing share buyback programme and continued strong performance should drive a further narrowing of the discount. Vietnam’s strong response to the pandemic has limited the human impact on a country with comparative advantages including a young, well educated population and relatively low labour costs. Vietnam turned out to be rare oasis of GDP growth in the economic desert of 2020 and according to the VOF team, is set fair to be the next ‘Asian tiger’. VOF’s listed holdings include steelmaker Hoa Phat, Airports Corporation of Vietnam and food and beverage business Vinamilk, while VOF is also the country’s largest private hospital investor. VOF has generated five and 10-year annualised net asset value (NAV) returns of 17.5% and 13.1% according to Morningstar.
