Neil Woodford updates on funds as at 31 August: what a total bag of junk!

Yes, folks, it’s that time of the month again when Neil Woodford updates us on his funds, and what is in them. The good news is that both unit trust (Equity Income and Income Focus) had net cash as at 31 August…….and Woodford Patient Capital (WPCT) didn’t.

FCA confirms Tom Winnifrith scoop. SVS is in special administration and something smells badly wrong

The FCA has just issued a statement to confirm our story of last Friday that SVS is in special administration. It is full of details on the compensation scheme but the line which stands out is that it acted on a tip-off over where SVS was investing clients’ money. Ouzo time for Tom, then, but sackcloth and ashes for SVS clients...

CORRECTION: Neil Woodford – a better day today! (All things are relative, not fired by anyone till late afternoon)

Well, the Income Focus Fund hasn’t been suspended yet and nobody’s sacked him today. Ooops TW Correction, it has just em erged that the mandate to manage the £330 million Omnis Fund has been terminated by Openwork. Woodford is utterly toxic. So, as Nigel was saying, until late this afternoon no-one had sacked Neil Woodford so that counts as a good day....

Neil Woodford – Bank Holiday reading in the press this weekend

As investors settle down for the Good Friday and Easter bank holiday weekend, Neil Woodford has had a fair degree of coverage to assimilate. Articles in The Times and the FT point to Woodford’s sale of £42 million worth of NewRiver REIT (NRR) to his former junior at Invesco – something which ShareProphets readers have been aware of ten days now (it is good to see the dead wood press keeping up!) Meanwhile Citywire reports that the suspensions of Woodford’s stocks in Guernsey may be resolved this coming week although we are not told which way. And Hargreaves Lansdown appears to be standing by its man, still, as it covers the recent results from WPCTsomething covered here some two weeks ago.

Neil Woodford EIF – new figures show redemptions still a monster headache as the dividend crashes

Neil Woodford’s funds have just released their latest numbers to the end of March – somewhat earlier than in recent months. The Equity Income Fund continues its path to becoming Patient Capital, is still overdrawn, has been selling more of its income stocks to meet redemptions and the dividend has been chopped. What’s not to like?!

Kier – in comes new CEO Andrew Davies who calls a strategic review. Will Woodford be vindicated?

Andrew Davies narrowly missed out on what surely would have been the corporate hospital pass of the decade – last year he was announced as the new CEO of Carillion, but it went bust before he got his feet under the desk. Now he comes in as the new CEO of Kier (KIE) and despite the rights offer of last December, his first move is a strategic review.

And this week’s disaster for Neil Woodford is…..Guernsey

The big news for Neil Woodford this week is that his joke listings in Guernsey have been suspended, casting a big shadow over his tactics of playing with the rules over the unlisted stocks within his portfolio. The questions ahead are whether they will now be booted off the Guernsey International Stock Exchange, and what the FCA will demand of him in response.

This week’s top disaster for Neil Woodford

Our good friends over at Citywire have again come up with bad news for Neil Woodford, in revealing that investors in his Equity Income Fund (EIF) reacted badly to last month’s sequence of dismal news by cashing out to the tune of £160 million. Having started March with £4.7 billion, EIF slumped to £4.4 billion last month which suggests that redemptions are not the only problem for Woodford.

With a big hat-tip to Citywire, is this the biggest Woodford scandal yet?

Citywire yesterday published an article which stated that Neil Woodford has listed four previously unlisted investments held by  Woodford Equity Income Fund on the International Stock Exchange in….er….Guernsey. Surely even Guernsey’s own residents would agree that this is not exactly the London Stock Exchange! But the odd thing is that Woodford himself seems to have been a tad reticent on the matter – I don’t see any headline proclaiming great success in gaining a listing in Guernsey from Neil Woodford! Why might that be? And that appears to be the nub of the issue.

Tom Winnifrith: Should I go to Guernsey on December 20 to try to vote down the African Potash GM?

The FRAUD African Potash (AFPO) has today snuck out notice of a General Meeting in an RNS which does not actually tell you what the meeting is for. It merely states that "a General Meeting ('GM') will be held at 12.00 p.m. on 20 December 2016 at Richmond House, St Julian's Avenue, St Peter Port, Guernsey GY1 1GZ.". I am sorely tempted to buy one or two shares in this company to attend and try to block the motion in hand. But I need to ask folks a question first.
