October 2020

Cadence Capital Limited returned a positive gross performance of 2.4% in the month of October, compared to the All Ordinaries Accumulation Index which was up 2.1% over the same period. The fund has had a good start to the new financial year returning 15.8%, outperforming the All Ordinaries Accumulation Index by 12.6% during this period. The largest contributors to performance during October were Pinterest Inc, AP Eagers, Lynas Corp, ARB Corp, Tencent Holdings and Money3 Corp. The largest detractors from performance were Uniti Group and Resimac Group.

At 31st October 2020, the Company was 74.0% invested.

Earlier this month, the Company released its September 2020 Quarterly Webcast. In this Webcast, Karl Siegling firstly provides an update on the Company’s performance, upcoming dividend payment and CDM’s discount to NTA. Portfolio managers, Jackson Aldridge and Charlie Gray, then discuss the portfolio’s construction and some of the Company’s current investment themes. Karl Siegling finishes with an update on the outlook for 2021.

On the 30th October 2020, the Company paid its 2.0 cents fully franked final dividend.  This brought the 2020 fully franked full year dividend up to 4.0 cents per share, equating to a 5.7% annual fully franked yield, or an 8.1% gross yield based on the CDM share price of $0.79 on the date that dividend was paid. The dividend re-investment plan (DRP) was not in operation for this final dividend as the Company’s shares are trading at a large discount to the underlying NTA per share of the Company. The Company has implemented an on-market share buy-back which increases the NTA per share for all existing Cadence Capital Limited shareholders.
