I am not sure where I first read of someone describing a buyback of the “Claytons” variety, but ASX Listed Investment Companies are relevant to this topic. Perhaps I first read about Claytons buybacks here. Since then though it is always in my mind when I look at certain companies release their buyback announcements, especially LICs.

This blog post topic came to mind after I read a post from another blogger. The post I refer to discusses whether fund managers are doing a good job communicating their ideas to attract retail investor demand. Continue reading “What do retail investors want to hear from their fund manager?”

I suppose it gives a chance for someone who hasn’t looked at it to get some perhaps at 4.4 cents, or potentially top up existing holdings. Continue reading “COMMENTS ON AGS,AIQ, MEL & NCC.”
I recently noticed that I hadn’t mentioned NCC here, probably as the holding was very small for me and the stock was just quietly doing a good job including some sizeable franked dividends on the way. I bought a year or two ago when the discount was probably a lot larger but didn’t get set with that much. Continue reading “NCC – A LIC with high concentration bets”
