In this webcast Charles Luke gives an update on a wide range of subjects including performance, a sector breakdown, the twenty largest investments and an outlook for the Trust
After a weak showing in March the FTSE All-Share Index recovered some lost ground in April rising 3% on a total return basis. The Index is up 7.8% year to date. All size groups enjoyed a positive month, the FTSE 100 Index was strongest, ahead 3.2%, with the FTSE SmallCap Index returning 1.6%. At the sector level Oil & Gas and Basic Materials staged a recovery in April whilst Health Care and Consumer Services were the two weakest performing areas.
UK macroeconomic data showed a loss of momentum in the month with the UK Manufacturing PMI below expectations at 51.9 against 54 in March. This was the slowest growth for UK factories in seven months and evidence of further unease ahead of the General elections in May. The strengthening of the pound against the euro was also sighted as a contributing factor to the weaker than expected readout. The Office for National Statistics reported in April that the rate of economic growth had halved in the three months to the end of March with the UK economy growing just 0.3% in that time compared to 0.6% in the last three months of 2014. Market forecasters do, however, expect a recovery later on in the year.
In a quiet month for trading we wrote a handful of options including calls in Linde and Pearson and some puts in Ultra Electronics.
The UK equity market has continued its strong run mostly driven by a rerating of earnings with, as yet, no clear signs of a recovery in earnings growth. Despite this, UK equities were the best performing asset class in April ahead of both UK Gilts and corporate bonds which both posted negative returns. There remains a substantial positive yield gap between the two asset classes. A sustained period of real wage growth, lower oil prices and the positive effects of quantitative easing in Europe should act as a stimulus for UK businesses in the months ahead.
