WIFF fund size down to £266mil according to Morningstar so that's dropped £30 million in a month, and less than half as big as it was in April. Interestingly on Morningstar's portfolio analysis (based on the last full published portfolio from April) 81% of WIFF was invested in small and micro cap companies. How many of these actually pay reliable dividends?

Well we've got no idea what Woodford is doing do we as he's holding back on publishing monthly factsheets. 21st of the month and July's isn't out yet. Even for WIFF which is not suspended. For WIFF I consider that inexcuseable but hey this is Woodford. WIFF market cap end of June £296m.

Agreed on banks, but starting to wonder if they're not now a better bet than the bond proxies. The ratings on the ULVRs, DGEs, RB.s etc is eye-watering, very little can go wrong. The ratings on even the High St banks are so low, how wrong can it go? Very, if another credit crunch, but the next crisis won't be like the last. Be interesting to see if WEIF does now have a big stake in LLOY, though if it does and if it's a success, it'll once again be a move Woody was forced into. His best trades have been his forced sells.

Better again in my view. Wrong point in the cycle for these though I think. H&T and Ramsden's are better placed (if you think gold is going up). My favourite banks are Arbuthnot and Secure Trust Bank. PCF and S&U are also OK. Banks are starting to be priced for recession at present though I feel. I'm not really a great fan of banks overall as the returns are too low and highly leveraged.

PFG still Fat Bloke Finance tho - wasn't it the PFG bloke who set up NSF after he left? And next CEO of PFG made a total mess, removing the personal relationships with the doorsteppers (tho under some pressure from FSA). Value destruction at PFG has been breathtaking, and always the memory of Cattles too. Not sure I'm doing a good job of convincing myself to buy NSF ;)

At least with PFG there is some level of corporate governance, Woodford seems to have thrown his investors money away on a lot of dubious characters.

@ltcm1 - agreed, PFG on its knees, Morses & NSF not yet tested in recession. But - everything has its price. Wonder what on earth that price is for Woody's holding. He has to sell, it's nowhere near being a FTSE250 stock, it failed to get together with PFG and wasted c.£13m of shareholders cash in the process, & 4 holders have 78%. I reckon it'd be a decent punt at c.20p tho. Not that us mug punters ever seem to get to buy at the Woody dump price.

They could be lying though, just as Purp blamed their losses on the foreign forays. The thing is it's a horrible situation when two people own over 50%, what institution is going to invest in a situation like that. The BofE also warned a number of times about how overheated this market had got, a hard brexit certainly won't help.

Vaguely OT, but anyone a view on NSF after RNS this morning? Losses mainly due to accounting for failed PFG bid where they wasted a vast sum, but underlying looks OK. Owned 28.2% Mark Barnett, 25.3% Woody Woodford. Would normally run a mile but still looking for that rare "fallen far enough" Woody holding. Of course, like HONY, it's another he's tried to resolve by forcing a merger elsewhere (& failing). Interesting that he did the same with Touchstone/IP Group several years ago.

Lol @Jonwig. Still very much looking forward to seeing what prices Woody achieves for the unicorns - clock is ticking. Confirmation of ITX sale out this morning. Still no Top 10 update from 30th June - not that it makes a lot of difference for WEIF holders who are locked in indefinitely.

Woodford Investment Management has been an effective cold(-hearted) fusion machine. Woodford and Newman have surely got a lot more out of it than they ever put in.

I don't think they've got more out than put in yet - but lots of companies think that will happen soonBut even with that it's still minimum 30 years (and more likely 50) before it's commercially viable The money going into the sector is mainly from uber high nets seeking philanthropic payback

Hot fusion, of which ICF is a form, is scientific reality. The problems are controlling it at scale sufficient to be useful. Cold fusion, which is what Woody went for, needs to break the laws of physics. There will be commercial hot fusion reactors generating power in the future, though possibly not in my lifetime (being an old fart already). Even hot fusion is not a suitable investment for an EIF or even a PCT. Https://lasers.llnl.gov/science/icf

Chucko - inertial confinement fusion is a form of hot fusion, using lasers to generate the heat under pressure required to initiate fusion. Legitimate science (albeit hard to achieve in practice), a far cry from the cold fusion pseudoscience scam peddled by Woody's Industrial Heat.

Just in: From 16:00-17:00 the 2019 Jenkin Lecture will be given by Professor Yiannis Ventikos, Kennedy Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Head of the Mechanical Engineering Department, University College London. The lecture is titled: 'Fusion as a method of power generation: science, engineering, entrepreneurship and adventure'. Fusion power is the holy grail of energy generation - free power extracted from water. Yiannis tells the story of Inertial Confinement Fusion, an Oxford idea being pursued by spin-out company First Light Fusion. He reveals the technical underpinnings and the decision-making behind taking this into the realm of private funding. After the Jenkin Lecture I would like to invite everyone to join us for a drinks and canapés reception where you will have a chance to network with your fellow alumni and academics from the department. I wonder which will be colder - the fusion or the canapés?
