One-off coverage increase on UK and US credit card portfolios
27 Oct 16
The reported quarterly performance was impacted by a one-off provision charge on UK and US credit card portfolios. The additional PPI-related provision was offset by the gain on the sale of Barclays Analytics and Index Solutions. The core division has continued to enjoy good revenue momentum and efficiency gains while the run-off of the non-core division has remained on track with the objective to close it in 2017.
Chosen final destination; ticket price uncertain
30 Mar 16
The group’s refocusing on the UK and the US has been strengthened further with the enlargement of the non-core assets to be divested and the decision to deconsolidate Africa. The investment bank still has room to improve its profitability further through ongoing efficiency gains and better capital usage. The visibility on the residual value adjustments required to run-down non-core assets has increased. The uncertainty surrounding future litigation charges now mostly concerns the settlement of the US RMBS inquiry. The temporary dividend cut decision seems to be partly motivated by pending extra management actions to reduce both operating and funding costs to bolster future profitability potential.
Don’t mess with IBK
09 Jul 15
Anthony Jenkins was fired on Wednesday after three years as CEO. The market reaction speaks for itself: the share price was up by 4% intraday before closing up 2%. According to the FT, Jenkins’ removal could result from a conflict with Tom King, the head of the IBK division. John McFarlane, the bank’s Chairman, will be the interim CEO until a new CEO is found, maybe the CFO.

Share & share alike
14 Feb 17
The rally in the last fortnight, highlighted in the table, reflects a continued flow of positive updates and economic news. The FTSE 250, Small cap and Fledgling indices have reached record highs. We are in the lull ahead of results for those companies with a December year end, a welter of economic data regarding the UK economy, the State of the Union address in the US on 28 February and the UK Budget on Wednesday 8 March. We will learn at that stage the latest forecasts from the Office of Budget Responsibility. As highlighted previously, the reaction to corporate updates will continue to set the tone.
Small caps best insulated from macro headwinds

The Diverse Income Trust (DIVI) invests in UK stocks from across the market cap spectrum that have strong prospects for sustainable dividend growth. This all-cap income generating strategy was developed by Gervais Williams and Martin Turner of Miton Asset Management. The c 145 stock portfolio provides a broad spread of investments and has a strong bias towards dividend-growing smaller companies. In terms of NAV total return, the trust has generated +125% over five years, ranking it second in its 23-strong peer group (the Association of Investment Companies’ UK Equity Income sector). Since launch, DIVI’s annual dividend has grown from 2.0p in FY12 to 2.8p in FY16 and it has built a substantial revenue reserve.

A growth and value opportunity
14 Feb 17
Shares in TMT are some 20% off their year highs and trading at an 11% discount to the last reported NAV of $1.91/share as at 30 June 2016. News flow since then suggests continued positive performance of the portfolio, with the most significant reported value event being the recent revaluation of Pipedrive accretive to NAV per share by circa 14.7c. TMT invests in high growth private companies and as such valuation events are relatively infrequent for its investee companies. Anecdotal evidence from some of TMT’s portfolio suggests that there remains significant value to be unlocked from certain investments, that will not yet meet the criteria for being recognised in the portfolio valuation as at December 2016. We highlight the key news events both reported by TMT, and those relating to its portfolio companies that we have identified since the last audited NAV was published.
