Re: Excellent performance by Merlindale

  Thu, 25 May 2017 22:32:00 GMT
I hold 3i and Intermediate Capital ( up 14% TODAY ) both extremely well run professionally managed businesses, and I now have about 12% of my portfolio in these 2 babies, up about 280% in 3i and over 160% in ICP respectively with excellent yields to boot - I like Melrose too up 160% in recent years. All 3 are run by astute financial managers who are really good at what they do.

Excellent performance by Rhigos

  Thu, 25 May 2017 09:09:00 GMT
I sold out of 3i Group in January 2006 and only bought back on 22 August last year. Added to holding in September and January. Now 4.82% by value of my share portfolio. Since August SP has risen an impressive 35%, at yesterday's close, one of my best performing shares. I note that out of 44 companies I have shares in it is up the most this morning +1.7%. On top of that a yield of 3.1% covered 6.4 times.

Explanation of recent SP rise - Action by Rhigos

From above Telegraph link, read in Business section yesterday:

"Market report: 3i enjoys best day in nine months on rating upgrade
Private equity firm 3i Group enjoyed its best day in nine months after Morgan Stanley singled out discount retailer Action as a “star” performer in its investment portfolio.

The US investment bank upgraded its rating from “equal-weight” to “overweight” and forecast underlying earnings growth of 16pc by March 2018 backed by a robust performance from Action, which is estimated to account for 40pc of 3i’s private equity portfolio.

“Action has become the key asset in the 3i portfolio,” analyst Geoff Ruddell noted.

In September 2011, 3i invested around £114m for a 43pc direct stake in Action. Since then, the FTSE 100 company has recouped around five times its original investment. Morgan Stanley estimates that its stake is now worth £1.4bn."

Broker upgrade I think:
"StockMarketWire.com - Morgan Stanley today upgrades its investment rating on 3i Group PLC [LON:III] to overweight (from equal weight) and raised its price target to 823p (from 710p)"

3i now one of my best performing shares. I used to have 3i shares years ago, 1st bought in 1995 but sold out in 2006 as they were not doing well then. Re-bought last Aug and built up holding with 3 further purchases. Proved to have been an share to buy and now my 5th largest holding by value out of 40.

Re: Martine Verluyten Buys 3,000 Shares of 3... by WarrenGemini

  Thu, 09 Mar 2017 12:19:00 GMT
There were 7 directors buys (including the one you identified) on the 6th if you look at the news tab, all at the same price. Looks like some kind of share scheme.

Martine Verluyten Buys 3,000 Shares of 3i Group by Rhigos

  Wed, 08 Mar 2017 16:39:00 GMT
Was wondering why on an otherwise flat day 3i went up 2.55%. Found this article though I would not have thought a modest purchase of 3,000 shares (around £20K) would move SP of a FTSE 100 company. I suppose because Martine is a non Executive Director of 3i Grouip she is deemed to have inside knowledge so others followed he lead.

Well done, the point about successful investing is being able to enjoy the benefits. Enjoy the skiing.

sold.... with a hint of reluctance by In the dark yet again

  Wed, 23 Nov 2016 12:49:00 GMT
Just sold 1/2 of mine, 800 odd at 664.5, not because I don't believe but because I needed some cash - dull reason but Xmas and skiing on the immediate horizon and well something has to give.

There were alternatives but this was ahead of expectations (the profit take target went last year but I'd been holding on for more) - sometimes you should just stick to the plan!

Regards,
ITDYA thinking not the 700+ I was hoping for but time ran out and 6 and 2/3rds isn't so bad.

I didn't think they were that bad. nor did the market until about 9:30am! Must have been a pretty poor presentation.

Re: Strong Forward P/E by Rhigos

Yesterday trawled through larger Investment Trusts, Mkt Cap > £400m, after considering topping up my substantial holding of FCS. I used to have 3i Group shares until I sold out Jan 2006. Noticed they have been performing well recently, SP +60% in the last 24 months. A dividend yield of 3.0%. PE 7.3 and trend downwards. From their company report they now vest some profits from sales of investments as dividends. This results in erratic dividends but looks like an attractive investment to me. I have placed a limit order on to buy a modest number of III shares at maximum of 623p. Will see what happens Monday. As more cash becomes available in my ISA I plan to buy more. My largest share holding in ISA is ARM and much to my annoyance ARM management are proposing to sell out to Japanese company SoftBank. If as is likely sale goes ahead will have a lot of cash to reinvest.
