In this webcast Ben Ritchie gives an update on a wide range of subjects including performance, a sector breakdown, the twenty largest investments and an outlook for the Trust.
In June the FTSE All-Share Index reversed much of its prior month gains falling 1.3% on a total return basis. Investors became concerned about the prospect of UK interest rate rises commencing sooner than expected while geopolitical risks in Iraq also impacted. Defensive sectors such as pharmaceuticals and oil and gas outperformed whereas banks lagged. Mid-sized companies underperformed their larger counterparts.
Domestic economic data remained strong. Although the services PMI fell to a three-month low, the reading remained well above long-run averages, while manufacturing and construction surveys continued to rise indicative of a more balanced economic expansion. Cumulatively, such data in the second quarter is consistent with GDP growth of over 1% on a quarterly basis. While the Monetary Policy Committee left interest rates on hold, the Bank of England’s Governor hinted that the risk of hikes in 2014 was bigger than markets expected. Elsewhere, in the eurozone the ECB announced several measures to tackle low inflation and stimulate lacklustre growth. In the US the first quarter reading of GDP was worse than expected due to bad weather but pointed to a second quarter rebound.
It was a particularly quiet month for trading. No trades were conducted albeit the option writing programme continued to generate supplemental income for the Trust.
Equity valuations are towards the upper end of historic ranges as earnings have struggled to keep pace with market performance. Although the macroeconomic environment appears increasingly supportive, it is worth remembering that to a large extent this is underpinned by accommodative monetary policy in the developed world and that many developing markets have entered a less assured period of growth. We find comfort in balance sheets which are in good health and valuations, despite being stretched in some areas of the equity market, which remain attractive compared to other asset classes. Against very strong market conditions we will struggle to keep up in the year ahead. However, we believe that our focus on good quality businesses with strong balance sheets, excellent management teams and the capacity to pay and grow dividends should continue to deliver good returns and real dividend growth to our investors over the long-term
