Just to maintain the dialogue. I sold out of BTEM 2 weeks ago after finally giving up on it after a no of years and decided to look at a few of these FTSE based investment trusts. I had held Edin previously so looked at them, CTY Dunedin and JPM Flaver. I have monitored the price of all 4 since and CTY is up 6.2%, Dunedin slightly less, Claverhouse slightly more but Edin is up closer to 9% in ths same period.
I shall continue this watching brief until the CTY divi at month-end has been paid and re-invested and may then switch to Edin as it does seem to be headed higher. No doubt Neil Woodford is a plus. I will also compare the discount/ premium before finally deciding.
Thanks for your views guys.
