The discount has come right back in this morning and it’s only -1.9% right now. If it were 6% I would have bought.

I’ve added it to my watch list instead. I have some cash in my portfolio but I’m sure another bout of volatility will happen again.

The power of compounding should be taught to our children in schools. Lowland is a great example of it.

He is a brave man that Mr Henderson judging by his stock choices - Glencore and Tesco, I expect he is too early with both but I’m sure he lays no clair to market timing abilities.

From a long term perspective this is a pretty good option all round in my view.

Yes @mammon he is early, repeatedly! It is his trademark almost. But the figures speak for themselves! This is a solid long-term hold, adding in downturns, like now.

I agree, it’s hard to time the market as we all know @mammon @james_pigott but it’s easier to know if you’re buying something when it’s cheap, though not so clear if it’ll get cheaper still.
