Shares dont go down in a straight line, this will be back under .40 by xmas but i cant help wondering is there is a bit of pump and dump going on, if this truly tanks to pennies are they dreading what will happen when weif open again one day and trying to mitigate it.

Spectoacc, the RGL issue was oversubscribed and yet we are about 2% off that (dividend-adjusted). On top of that, there have been constructive updates. Likely NW has been chucking them out, so I’ve been buying! Similar story with NRR as we both know. He had some decent stuff in IFF, but as I’ve been saying for ages on this board - it’s more a risk thing. Of course, not everyone listens, but no tears for them: I detest stupidity.

Rats or children I guess, either apt! Not sure if Woody is the Pied Piper or the Mayor - I think he's the Mayor, & Mr Market is the Pied Piper. Trying to think if Woody's had an AIM winner... Noticed on CIR thread that he may be out of that now, and possibly RGL (in IFF).

Rats? Aren't the first to leave, proverbially? Ostriches.

"Analysts suggest a good deal of the increase is due to other investors piling in in the belief that Mr Woodford’s decision to back the companies augurs well for their futures." Brilliant. RM2, 4D - any idea of the rest of the "slew"? Circassa I bet. A single winner amongst any of them, or all 90-100% fallers? No shortage of rats still on this BB either!

Yes, all those toe-curling pictures of Mr Smug. And Numis - now probably the most damning broker critic. What it does show is that the well-informed and critical-minded PI can see through the hype. I did think of buying, but a broker advised me to hold off from the IPO, and the initial premium convinced me to leave alone.

On the FT archive, a flashback to five years ago. How times change! Neil Woodford has been hailed as the “Pied Piper” of fund management after the prices of a slew of minnow companies he named in a list of his holdings rocketed. Analysis of share prices from the fund’s first day of trading on June 19 through the period in which the disclosure was made reveals spectacular results. Almost all of Mr Woodford’s Aim picks have risen sharply in value, even as the FTSE Aim All-Share index has fallen 1.5 per cent in the same period. 4D Pharma, a pharmaceutical venture, has risen 52.9 per cent, while pallet maker RM2 International has surged 49.8 per cent. Some of this is likely to be due to buying from CF Woodford Equity Income pushing up the prices, but the stakes Mr Woodford has taken in most of the stocks represent much less than 1 per cent of the fund’s assets. Analysts suggest a good deal of the increase is due to other investors piling in in the belief that Mr Woodford’s decision to back the companies augurs well for their futures. One analyst at Numis Securities, a City broker, says: “People follow Neil Woodford – he is the rock star of the fund management world. If you look at the timeline of the spike in the shares of these Aim companies, it is obvious that he had an effect.” Another analyst says there is probably some degree of investors buying stocks highlighted by Mr Woodford, describing the situation as reminiscent of the “Pied Piper of Hamelin”.

Maybe the point about Temasek/BAI is this: "We want to invest $1m. We can buy 100k shares at $10 or 200k shares at $5. The previous valuation is irrelevant to us and we know Woody is a forced seller. His shares will find a buyer quicker at $5 than $10."

I don't think you can equate Temasek with Woody..... they've been around for nearly 50 years and manage a portfolio worth a cool $313 billion....

@jonwig - good point - he has to sell the full Benevolent holding out of WIM. To whom, and at what price? Perhaps Temasek have done him a favour here - he's now selling a stake in a co with a more supportive shareholder, and that now doesn't have an immediate need for more cash. Pity the same can't be said of the other unicorns/unlisteds. Have to say, I'm far from convinced by Benevolent - a definite "hope" stock, but we'll see.

Temasek are nobody's fool - that's a serious investor with v deep pockets to have on board.

Blimey.... they have found a bigger fool to invest in the cash guzzling BenevolentAI. That's obviously what has been behind the recent increase in the WPCT share price. Gives both companies a bit of breathing space.

On the initial news of the NAV cut, the share price fell to 40p. It’s now 46.75p. This might suggest that the discount is as far as the market feels it needs to be, and that the 50% cut to Benevolent AI was pretty well as expected. Were that to be the case with other large holdings, therefore, we might see the current trading range holding. Except IH is likely a 100% bust and other issues of trust are likely to arise given the exceptionally awful quality of the WPCT BOD. Offsetting that is the chance that somewhere, by chance or otherwise, WPCT has some Ace in the pack. Can anyone think of one?
