Shares for 2015 update: Core VCT – a profit!

By Nigel Somerville, the Deputy Sheriff of AIM | Saturday 17 October 2015

Disclosure: I own shares in one or more of the stocks mentioned. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.

I first suggested you buy the Core Venture Capital Trust back on 28 Dec last year, at an offer price of 51p. A few trades went through at well below that (the spread was big enough to drive a bus through) but we will take it as being 51p. The view at the time was that despite holding the management of this outfit in very low regard there appeared to be value to be had, with a good margin of safety. I suggested that it may even see a full liquidation within the year.
