Dragon Ukranian Property – Vote No at EGM

Brief post on Dragon Ukranian Property.

I bought this in March 2018 for c18p per share. I had a distribution of .09 USD per share or c 7p. So even if this goes through I am more-or-less flat.  It’s actually worse than that though.  Since I bought this in March 18 my portfolio is up 16%, so this has been a net detractor.

Q1 Portfolio/Performance update (+11%) Coronavirus and thoughts on where to go from here

Lots going on in the portfolio so I thought I would give a quick update.

At the end of Q1 I was +4% ytd now (14/4/2020) I am c+11%.  This should be compared to the index which is -c22% now, at the low I was down c5% for the year. I feel a little bad posting this as lots of this is from non-usual (for me) trades… Many of these, I put on Twitter, unfortunately, I can’t post everything as it may move prices against me, particularly where I only sell half.  I know many of you are not twitter followers.  If you would like an e-mail when I tweet there is a service for that here.

Exited Beximco $BXP -4% Bangladesh listing falling fast

Tags

, , ,

EDIT 16/2/2020 – I reentered as the underlying bounced back.  I posted this on twitter – follow me there.

I have exited this – the Bangladeshi listing has fallen. It was c80p a share when I bought in – it is now 55p -31% and the UK listing is down c4%.  I have therefore exited.

There are rumours this is due to an accounting issue – I doubt this, the company pays good dividends and has been in operation a long time.

But I cant ignore the risk so for now I am staying out until the discount opens up again.

I will watch and wait.

Rosetti ($RSTI) / $FEES – Russian Grids at bargain prices

Tags

, , , , , ,

I bought both of these the other week.  They are both very, very cheap and I believe are high quality assets that will rise in price as performance improves and Russia becomes a more ‘normal’ country.

 

FEES – Fsk Yees Pao is the largest grid company in Russia. 80% of the shares are owned by Rosetti, 88% of Rossetti shares are owned by the Russian government.  It is listed in Moscow and London via a GDR – I believe the Moscow shares are cheaper to buy and hold due to fees associated with the GDR. The likely yield is 8-10%. Continue reading

New Investment – RusHydro ( $HYDR)

Tags

, ,

Posted a few new investments on twitter that I thought I would update you on.  I have found Russia rich pickings for a lover of high yields and low PEs.

I wrote this a few weeks ago but didn’t get it posted as I have had an unfortunate festive flu – figures maybe a little more out of date than usual. I am long from 0.51 (Late October), (currently 0.5895 so +15% in a couple of months) but think there is still value, I literally bought a touch more on Friday.

Beximco Pharma – Bangladeshi Pharma at a discount to local value

Tags

, , ,

Got this idea from Mello stock slam.  I quite like it, bought a just under 3% weight at 42.9 earlier in the week.

This is a Bangladeshi Generic Pharma GDR listed on AIM.  There is a substantial discount to the listed Bangladeshi co which is trading at the UK equivalent of 74p – a c40% discount to the Bangladeshi company.

There have been lots of fly-by night overseas domiciled companies on AIM.  I don’t think this is one of them.  Firstly the sector is pharma – highly sensitive and regulated – not the ideal place to operate a scam.  Secondly, the company was founded in 1974 – so it has been going quite a while.  This is one of the biggest / most liquid companies in Bangladesh.

Moscow Stock Exchange (MOEX)

As I tweeted the other day I have just bought some Moscow Stock Exchange (MOEX). Increasingly I am tempted by low price, high quality companies in somewhat lower quality locations.

To me MOEX meets the quality bar.  It has a dominant market position being the only exchange in Russia, it has an EBITDA margin of over 70%, a net profit margin of c45%.  There hasnt been much growth in operating income over the past few years – but it doesnt really matter as this is very, very cheap.  It is trading on about twice book value and a PE of about 10.
