Hi Liberalman,
I have held my MRCH trust, but today caught a piece about the trust being one that is on the sell list of his investment trusts for 2017 from ones he held in 2016.

I still hold ALAI, MRCH, MUT, MYI, JEMI, and CTY plus Newton Global Income W.

having checked the balance sheet I can see that the trust is still in loss making mode at -13p EPS.

How have your trusts faired the last 6 months? Which ones are you adding to or starting a new position in?

MRCH's just seems to be a cash cow churning out dividends, and recently raised its last dividend from 6p to 6.1p! Would it not have been better to pay down debt than pay out the higher dividend to help their gearing? Not sure if I have explained correctly?

I have 2 questions for here...

Why is it that the last news update (success / troubles ) dates back to March 27 2013 for Merchants Trust?

Lastly, with a dividend yield over 5 for a trust and also has a discount NAV why is it not being talked / mentioned in any periodicals iv come across.
I just picked it out when going through the FT.

I have just bought ALAI 2 weeks ago, hold MYI, MIC, TEM, Threadneedle GloBal Inc, Newton Global Income and STS.

High yield, but trades at disc.
21 Oct '15
Just looked at all Investments trusts in FT section and there are only currently 4 over 4% that trade at a discount. Unusual.

Unsure if this discount would widen in short term?

Looking at ALAI, Shires Inc, InvescoPerp, BlackrockLatinAmerica. I hold 6 already MYI, MIC, STOS, TEM, ThreadneedleGlobal, NewtonGlobal.

Are you sure about the 8% yield? I thought it was about 5% currently.
