+ Watch TTF
on My Watchlist
An investment fund company.
Closed End Fund, Asian Equity, Discount 10%,1Y Rtn on NAV 62%, 3Y Rtn on NAV 34%
Political problems in Thailand have pushed down the market's valuation to 9x earnings and almost a 5% yield. This fund invests in Thailand and trades at a 14.5% discount to NAV when in recent years has traded at a 10-20% premium. Check out this link for the historical data: http://tinyurl.com/54lmfe. Thailand has its share of problems but isn't as much of a basket case as is implied in the current valuation. Plus, with the discount to NAV you get the benefit of closure of that gap (over time).
While there are many negatives for stocks of Thailand (military junta leading the country, a revered king who is ailing and is almost 80), all of these are already known to investors, and are fully recognized in the stock price of TTF, and have kept the price much lower than if all were well. But elections are promised to be held within 2 months, and when democracy is restored, many investors who have been avoiding the market here will flock to one of the most undervalued markets in the world. Watch for a vibrant rebound in stock prices before the end of the year.
Some silly moves by a government and depressed market multiples will translate into an attractive investment. Once again, patience is a virtue.
Started noticing an international manager that I follow buying some Thai stocks. PE on the mkt as a whole is very low. I wish I had a few other venues to play it.
the thai gov is crazy and lets hope there not over run agine and the crazyness dose not go to nabors shot this
Undervalued Closed-end fund in an undervalued global market. That's a win-win in my book.
