2 FTSE 250 investment trusts I’d buy and hold for 20 years

first_img The great financial experiment of the last 10 years has seen investors flock to growth and momentum. It’s been the era of the so-called FAANGs and ‘bond proxy’ stocks.The FAANGs are Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google’s parent Alphabet. Bond proxies are blue-chip companies that pay reliable, bond-coupon-like dividends. Think Procter & Gamble and Johnson & Johnson in the US, and Unilever and Diageo in the UK.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…These themes are reflected in the portfolios of London’s current best-performing investment trusts in the global sector: Scottish Mortgage (a 10-year return of 609%) and Lindsell Train (625%).However, as almost all investment literature warns, “past performance may not be indicative of future results”. And I’m concerned this could well be the case with the likes of Scottish Mortgage. This is due to the eye-watering valuations of many of the underlying holdings.UnfashionableValue investing, as formulated by Ben Graham aeons ago, has outperformed growth over long timescales. As such, I believe unfashionable, value-focused investment trusts could deliver superior returns in the coming decades.With this in mind, I’d be happy to buy FTSE 250-listed AVI Global Trust (LSE: AGT) and Caledonia Investments (LSE: CLDN). Their returns over the last 10 years — 130% and 157%, respectively — have been solid rather than spectacular.Discount-to-NAV specialistAVI Global (formerly British Empire Trust) was established in 1889, and has been managed by Asset Value Investors since 1985. This trust seeks out listed companies whose shares stand at compelling discounts to their estimated underlying net asset values (NAVs). It looks for attractive businesses, with honest, intelligent management willing to engage with shareholders, and catalysts to bring the share prices to their true values.It trawls the world for opportunities. For example, it invested in 16 Japanese companies with substantial excess capital, and is engaging with management about releasing it. The trust’s other investments include discounted closed-end investment companies (such as Third Point Offshore), asset-backed groups (such as Sony Corp) and family-backed holding companies (such as Jardine Strategic).AVI Global reckons its portfolio is at a discount of over 30% to underlying NAV. And with the trust itself trading at a discount of around 10%, I see good value on offer for investors today.Long-term value investorCaledonia’s heritage goes back to the shipping empire established by Sir Charles Cayzer in 1878. The trust still enjoys the backing of the Cayzer family today. It says this gives “support to our long-term value investment horizon and provides a foundation to our culture of conservative generational wealth management.”Over a third of Caledonia’s net assets are private capital investments in 11 UK companies with equity values of £25m-£125m. It has significant direct influence over these businesses and their management. They include control systems firm Deep Sea Electronics and bingo clubs chain Buzz Bingo.The trust also invests in quoted companies (such as Microsoft and British American Tobacco) and funds, including quoted and private equity. The funds provide broad exposure to areas of the world where it would prove more difficult for Caledonia to invest directly.Trading at a 17% discount to NAV, I reckon this trust is another terrific pick for long-term value investors.

Top 14: Claassen and co. are ready to topple Toulon

first_img All in good time: It’s been a stellar season for the South African-born No 8, so much so he doesn’t want it to endBy Gavin MortimerTHERE ARE still moments when Antonie Claassen has to pinch himself. Can it really be true? A French international and in the final of the Top 14? “It is hard to believe at times,” says the South African-born No8. “This time last year I was at about the lowest point of my career and now here I am, I’ve played for France and I’m about to play in my first Top 14 final. I couldn’t have dreamt of a better season.”A Brive stalwart for five seasons, Claassen suffered as much as anyone when the club was relegated from the Top 14 last May. “At Brive I felt more and more under pressure to perform every week,” he says. “I was the captain and I felt that responsibility.”Freed of that burden, the 28-year-old Claassen has been outstanding this season, his explosive pick-ups from the base of a scrum are a familiar sight as Castres finished fourth at the end of the regular Top 14 season. That achievement earned them a play-off against Montpellier, a match Castres won 25-12, with Claassen scoring the only try of the game. Next up was Clermont in the semi-final in Nantes, and few in France gave them much hope of success against a side that finished 17 points clear of them in the table.But Castres not only won, they dismantled the much-vaunted Clermont pack in an astonishing 25-9 victory. The more one-eyed Clermont supporters might say their boys were still sluggish after their Heineken Cup final defeat to Toulon the previous week, but don’t believe it: Clermont were simply outplayed.Slaying David: Castres destroyed Clermont in a 25-9 victory“No one gave us much chance going into that game but we believed in ourselves,” says Claassen. “So while we were surprised by the margin of victory we weren’t by the result. We played controlled, clinical rugby and we took the points when they were on offer.”What pleased Claassen most about the win was the camaraderie, an esprit de corps that he singles out as the prime factor in his own continued good form. “I don’t want the season to end!” he declares when asked if he’s not feeling the strain after ten months of rugby that includes three appearances for France in the Six Nations. “Right now I feel I could continue playing for another couple of months. The key is feeling fresh mentally and I’m still feeling that because I’ve enjoyed coming to training every single day. The coaches [Laurent Labit and Laurent Travers] deserve a lot of credit for that; they’ve created an environment where it’s a pleasure to train.” Castres’ French number 8 Antonie Claassen (2nd R) passes the ball during the French Top 14 semifinal rugby union match Clermont vs Castres on May 25, 2013 at the Beaujoire stadium in Nantes, western France. AFP PHOTO / JEAN-SEBASTIEN EVRARD (Photo credit should read JEAN-SEBASTIEN EVRARD/AFP/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Claassen and his Castres buddies arrived back from Nantes on Sunday morning, touching down at the airport to find hundreds of fans there to greet them. “It’s been crazy since the moment we arrived back,” says Claassen. “They love their rugby in Castres and it’s a great boost for the town and the whole region that we’ve reached the final.”Castres last appeared in the Top 14 final in 1995 so not surprisingly the town is preparing to decamp en masse to Paris to see if their boys can do to Toulon what they did to Clermont. The French press are talking up the final as David versus Goliath. Toulon are the European champions, a side sparkling with stars and possessing a €22m budget that is €5m more than  Castres’. Then again, when the two sides met at Castres in February, Toulon went down 25-20, so the glamour boys from the Cote d’Azur are unlikely to arrive in Paris believing it’s job done.“They won’t be complacent,” predicts Claassen, who jets off to New Zealand to join the France squad the day after the Top 14 Final. “They’ve got too much experience in their side to allow themselves to fall into that trap.”So Claassen is preparing for another shuddering encounter as well as the opportunity to pit his wits against two Springbok legends in Bakkies Botha and Danie Rossouw. “I don’t see it as extra motivation,” says Claassen. “But it will be fun playing against a couple of South Africans.” ‘Fun’… playing against Botha? That will surely be a first, but perhaps it will be Claassen having the last laugh on Saturday night.The Top14 final between Toulon and Castres will be screened live on TV5MONDE (Sky channel 799 and Virgin Media 825)last_img read more

Lions name team for opening game against NZ Provincial Barbarians

first_img Leading man: Sam Warburton will captain the Lions in their opening game. Photo: Getty Images Lions starting XV: Stuart Hogg; Anthony Watson, Jonathan Joseph, Ben Te’o, Tommy Seymour; Johnny Sexton, Greig Laidlaw; Joe Marler, Rory Best, Kyle Sinckler, Alun Wyn Jones, Iain Henderson, Ross Moriarty, Sam Warburton (capt), Taulupe Faletau.Replacements: Jamie George, Mako Vunipola, Tadhg Furlong, George Kruis, Justin Tipuric, Rhys Webb, Owen Farrell, Jared Payne. We take a look at the Lions team Warren Gatland has named for the opening game of the 2017 tour With the British & Irish Lions team for the first game named, this tour feels real now!The Lions open their 2017 campaign against the NZ Provincial Barbarians at Toll Stadium in Whangarei on Saturday – and Warren Gatland has picked a strong squad.As expected, those players who have been training with the Lions from the off make up the bulk of the starting XV – they have had the longest to work on combinations and game plans. Only Jared Payne of that original 14 misses out on a place in the run-on side, with Alun Wyn Jones and Johnny Sexton completing the line up.Man at No 10: Ireland’s Johnny Sexton has got the nod at fly-half. Photo: Getty ImagesThere are nine new Lions in the starting line-up but the leadership credentials of the side are impressive, with three national captains – Jones, Greig Laidlaw and Rory Best – and Lions skipper Sam Warburton in the XV.“We have named a side that showcases a strong combination of experience and youth,” says Gatland. “It’s a great opportunity for the whole match-day squad to lay down a marker and get the tour off to a good start.”FOR THE LATEST SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS, CLICK HERESexton gets the first opportunity at fly-half, with Owen Farrell on the bench. The Ireland No 10 had a poor game for Leinster in their Guinness Pro12 semi-final defeat by the Scarlets two weeks ago so will be looking to put in a performance that is up to his more usual high standards.It will be interesting to see whether Farrell comes on as a straight replacement for Sexton at ten or for Ben Te’o in the midfield – the latter option would give the coaches to see the much touted Sexton-Farrell 10-12 combination in action.Danger man: Stuart Hogg will get to show his attacking abilities from full-back. Photo: Getty ImagesThe back three looks dangerous, with the creativity of Stuart Hogg, the pace of Anthony Watson and the work-rate of Tommy Seymour a good balance, while Te’o and Jonathan Joseph in the centres will be familiar with one another from their time with England.center_img LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS The all-Welsh back row should complement each other too – the power of Ross Moriarty, the softer skills of Taulupe Faletau and the jackling of Warburton.It’s a powerful partnership in the second row with Jones teaming up with Ireland’s Iain Henderson, who should also work well with his Ulster team-mate Best at lineout time. There’s another club duo in the front row, Harlequins’ Joe Marler and Kyle Sinckler the props.Double act: Kyle Sinckler and Joe Marler, of Quins, are the starting props. Photo: Getty ImagesHaving familiar combinations is a boon for the Lions in their opening game given their lack of preparation time, but it must also be stated that this will be by far their easiest game of the tour, with the majority of players in the Provincial Barbarians squad from the level below Super Rugby. They will probably be more unfamiliar with each other than some of these Lions and the tourists should win comfortably.Come Saturday night in Whangarei, we’ll see what the Lions Class of 2017 are made of.NZ Provincial Barbarians v British & Irish Lions, 7.35pm (8.35am UK & Ireland), Toll Stadium, live on Sky Sports and TalkSportlast_img read more

Schultz said the team will help female students create a sense of family around the sport.“I think it’ll just add to the sense of equality,” Shultz said. “I just think that it’ll give an outlet for girls to just come together and boost their confidence.”Fred Stewart, a security guard with TCU police, will be the faculty sponsor of the club league. “What I want to see is more students interacting together,” Stewart said. “By having this basketball league, maybe they can come see us practice or play a couple of games.”Bailey Boyle, a junior biology major, will also play on the team. Boyle said basketball means a lot to her because it’s her getaway.Junior Sophia Schultz is one of the students founding the club women’s basketball league.

The group is also working on creating a constitution and submitting a proposal to the TCU club sports office. “I’m looking forward to the organization starting,” Rone said. “We’re really looking forward to a lot of spirit and support when we get the team up and running.”Rone said the club will raise awareness by selling t-shirts and if all goes well, they will hold tryouts within the next few months with hopes to start in the spring season.

A Dentist Who’s Close To Home

first_img Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Make a comment Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Business News Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Dr. Harmik Derhartounian with his Flintridge Dental Studio team.A trip to the dentist always inspires fear and dread for many patients. Dr. Harmik Derhartounian at the Flintridge Dental Studio, however, wants to eradicate those fears.Stepping into Dr. Derhartounian’s dental studio, one will instantly feel right at home. Unlike the cold, sterile offices most probably grew up with, Dr. Derhartounian’s office is a very homey and comfortable affair. This speaks volumes on what to expect when you visit him.“When patients arrive, they see the environment and how it is and how comfortable it is and then, obviously, the philosophy or practice comes right in and they can see it,” says Dr. Derhartounian.The philosophy? Patients first.“We are centered around the comfort of our patients. I know at times this is very old news because probably a lot of people do say that,” Dr. Derhartounian tells us, but other dental offices have “staff who are very rigid in their own policies.”“We are very much patient-oriented rather than business-oriented or insurance-oriented,” Dr. Derhartounian adds.What Dr. Derhartounian is saying is that all his patients are treated as family. All his relationships with patients aren’t the usual doctor/patient stereotypes where patients are kept at arm’s length.“We make ourselves very accessible to our patients. And, it’s one big family. I get calls all day long. If it’s after hours, we respond to the calls. If I have to come in, I’ll come in. I’m right here in the area, maybe a minute and a half away,” says Dr. Derhartounian.To fortify the “patient first” philosophy, and strengthen the homey feel of the office, Dr. Derhartounian says “we go to great lengths to make it as comfortable and pain-free as possible.”Even the services offered reflect the “patient first” philosophy, by making sure the latest pain-free procedures are used.“We do use the laser on several facets of work; anywhere from treatment of gum disease to surgery and a lot of otherunpleasantries. We can use the laser to help with filling simple cavities, and it requires no anesthetic or very little anesthetic,” Dr. Derhartounian explains.With surgical procedures, the laser is particularly useful since it foregoes the use of the scalpel and healing times are reduced dramatically, ensuring patients are comfortable, Dr. Derhartounian tells us.Other technologies employed that minimize patient discomfort are:The Wand, a digital electronic device that injects anesthetic. “What it does is asit’s being inserted, it will inject the anesthetic so you feel a little bit more comfortable,” Dr. Derhartounian explains.There are also “different medications and pain management systems available for those with anxiety,” Dr. Derhartounian says, which minimizes pain significantly so “once we start the procedure, most of our patients just go to sleep.”Perhaps the most wonderful technology available that addresses the most dreaded procedure is the root canal system. “Right now, we have electronic systems to measure your root — we aren’t exposing our patients to unnecessary X-rays –this is called the Root-ZX system. It provides exact measurementsof the length of the root, without usual amount of multiple x-rays needed,” says Dr. Derhartounian.Flintridge Dental Studio does it all, Dr. Derhartounian says, from crowns to teeth replacement, full reconstruction to full mouth implants, and of course pediatric dental care for kids.“We have patients that say, ‘Can you see my son or my daughter?’ And we ask them how old are they. And if I can give them a pleasant experience, then I want them here, because the number one thing that’s very important for me is (for patients) to have a pleasant experience because they’re going to carry that the rest of their lives,” says Dr. Derhartounian.“The main thing is, we are here to help achieve their overall dental health in the most comfortable way.”Flintridge Dental Studio is located at 4542 Rinetti Lane, La Canada, Flintridge, with office hours during weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.If you want to find out more about Dr. Derhartounian and the services he offers, you can visit http://flintridgedentalstudio.com or call (818) 495-4969 to set an appointment.
