Investment Trust Insider: issue 27 out now!

Stock market falls at the start of the year were worrying but have resulted in improved value for investment trust investors.

Investment Trust Insider: issue 27 out now!

Quality goes cheap

The stock market turbulence we’ve seen this year has been alarming but it does create opportunities for long-term investors, which we explore in this month’s issue of Investment Trust Insider.

How to profit from discounts

The fall in share prices has left a large number of investment trusts on cheap valuations with their shares trading on discounts below net asset value. Bargain hunters need to tread carefully, however, as cheap does not mean good. This article shows where the best opportunities lie and hears from analysts who recommend using volatile markets to find quality trusts trading on low levels.

Six trusts for a value revival

We continue the bargain-hunting theme with a look at ‘value’ investing, a style of stock picking that buys cheap, undervalued companies, which itself has been out of favour since the financial crisis. There are signs, however, that value could make a comeback as ‘growth’ investing struggles against the difficult economic backdrop. We speak to leading investors and fund managers about the pros and cons of value investing and highlight six investment trusts that could benefit from a value revival.

ISA 2016: can UK equity income still shine?

Equity income – the practice of buying stocks with growing dividends and above average yields – has been a successful offshoot of value investing for many years. However, the increasing occurrence of dividend cuts has made the job of UK equity income fund managers more difficult, with the EU referendum threatening more uncertainty for investors. We hear from three leading investment trust managers on the challenges and opportunities they see for dividend investors.
