SMALL COMPANIES DIVIDEND TRUST PLCTrust facts as at 30.6.05

The recent elections in France and Greece dominate the headlines as the macro debate now centres around ‘austerity’ or ‘growth’.  We are inclined to believe that the current option will prevail but by bringing the issues within the Eurozone back onto the front pages we expect volatility to increase in financial markets over the coming months.  The last month was a quiet one for corporate results although, pleasingly, the ratio of earnings upgrades to downgrades for the UK remained in positive territory.  After an encouraging  reporting season in the previous month when our Company’s were able to highlight their cash flow and dividend attractions to the market there was no catalyst to move prices forward last month and there was no real sector or ‘style’ leadership amongst UK equities.  Investors  focus switched towards ‘top down’ considerations which, by and large, continued to disappoint. 

Despite the mixed signals from the macro data, domestic earnings growth  forecasts for UKplc of low single digit percentages  look achievable and are, we believe, supportive of current equity valuations.  In the last month Canopius announced an agreed offer for our holding in Omega Insurance at 67p cash per share and we added to our holding in Nationwide Accident Repairs.  GVC released a reassuring set of numbers and are moving dividend payments to a quarterly  basis and Firstgroup had a disappointing update. We continue to look for opportunities to reduce our exposure to some of our larger illiquid holdings at appropriate prices and to add new holdings that will improve the underlying yield of our portfolio.

  • Risk Factors

  • The value of investments and the income from them may go down as well as up and you may not get back your original investment. Investment trusts can borrow money to make additional investments on top of shareholders funds (gearing). If the value of these investments fall in value, gearing will magnify the negative impact on performance. Particular share classes may also be structurally geared by other share classes that have earlier entitlement to the Company’s assets up to a predetermined limit. If an investment trust incorporates a large amount of gearing the value of its shares may be subject to sudden and large falls in value and you could get back nothing at all. Some split capital shares have higher risk characteristics than conventional equities which can result in capital erosion. An investor could lose all of their capital. Smaller companies are riskier and less liquid than larger companies which means their share price may be more volatile. Some of the annual management fee is currently charged to the capital of the Fund. Whilst this increases the yield, it will restrict the potential for capital growth. The level of yield may be subject to fluctuation and is not guaranteed. Net Asset Value (“NAV”) performance is not the same as share price performance and investors may not realise returns the same as NAV performance.
