topvest: Yes, agreed. Bilby may well recover. WSE will not exit when they need to, which is what you must do on poor quality businesses. Bilby is probably an administration risk at some point as its operating in a poor sector and doesn't really show any signs of being a long term winner!
russman: and more Bilby. Wish WSE a lot of luck.
russman: Can only think LFI/WSE is a Marshall SA dividend tax avoidance plan.
topvest: WSE have increased their stake in Bilby. They really don't learn do they? You would have thought they would have clinched an understanding by now of what companies and sectors constitute a high quality investment and which should probably be avoided. OK, Bilby might be cheap. It might go much higher, but its also a reasonable candidate for going bust in the next few years as its a poor company in a horrible sector. Even if it does go higher will they exit or just await the cliff edge when things go wrong again as so often they do in this particular sector? Historical experience suggests that they would top-slice a few bit eventually lose the whole investment. I've lost my patience - change is needed here. The whole investment set up of LFI and WSE is a charade of mediocrity (at best) with the Marshall's profiteering at everyone else's expense.
smithie6: the structure of course of LFI is to provide a higher return to the Marshalls compared with them just investing their own money privately. By being listed & having WSE under LFI control they can have control over more assets for a fixed amount of their own cash. & the income from "all" the assetts helps pay their dirs. fees & travel costs, expenses, med. cover .....whereas otherwise they would have to pay all of their costs themselves. (before 1 son sadly passed away there were 2 Marshalls receiving directors fees... & I think the LFI owned London flat (now sold) was rented to the Marshalls , & below the mkt rate...) & wer/are any wives/girlfriends also on the payroll ?? so, owning 30-40% to have control of 2 entities ...& receive dirs feed etc, is beneficial vs just investing that 30-40% privately.
smithie6: Russman/topvest I see you are both still in LFI or Western glad I got out !...& I waited for too long... amazes me that the bod dont seem to be able to learn !! & yes, Bilby....who in their right mind would have invested in that at its flotation price, nuts phps similar to Creston, the bod got blinded by the person selling the story ----- Hartim food exports ....The main business of the Marshalls is in food exports/imports, from S.A. yet despite the 'skill' & experience of the Marshalls helping them ....& the Marshall's import/expert business having an office in London & lots of food business contacts....(with Hartim being a microscopic business on an ind. estate over in Gloucestershire area) .. the Hartim business still went down the tube...(or Western has decided it is just about to, so they left the bod) & that was after Western putting in more money to save the co. one time before !! ----- imo the dirs. haven't got the touch, the instinct, gut feeling, the touch for investing & are not willing to realise it or to appoint an experienced investment advisor on full time or part time basis. Mr Marshall senior phps still thinks that it is 1960-80 & investing is just about buying some good blue chip shares, with a decent divi %, & some strategic investments that look ok & then just relaxing & over time you make lots of money. In the 70s, 80s that was phps an ok policy. But those days ended years ago. ----- I'm sure that 'we' have all outperformed LFI & Western, & by miles.
russman: WSE has no raison d'etre anymore.
topvest: I would be happy with a merger first of all, so that we just hold shares in the LSE listed Lonfin. We are all trapped in WSE where the bid / offer spread is ludicrous. Why they ever moved onto Ofex (then Plus and now Aquis exchange) is anyone's guess. Maybe it was to cause an intentional trap! I have noticed though that a few disaster shell companies (held for over a decade) have recently jumped in price. I have actually sold a few duff companies at what I consider to be a fair price on Aquis in the last week which is odd. Nice to tidy up the bottom end of my portfolio from a more speculative style 20 years ago! I still hold lots of Gledhow Investments and Western Selection though, and will patiently await an exit opportunity. The unfortunate thing about Lonfin or WSE is that whenever they have a strategic investment, I am convinced that this has a negative impact on the share price of the strategic investment. I would guess that Brand Architekts starts flying now that WSE have exited!
russman: Marshall has lost the investment plot. The overheads have been excessive for decades with mediocre performance. Fold LFI & WSE together; retire the dead wood; chop overheads or relate to performance.
topvest: Yes, but I would say their RNS was positive as Bilby was very close to going bust. It's quite positive that directors supported the fundraise. I guess that we will find out this week, through a holding RNS, whether or not WSE put some more in. WSEs investment strategy isn't working and we need to lobby for LFI to take it out.
