Alliance Trust Plc, a surprise from Dundee!

#Gold #Nasdaq As one of the UK’s largest and oldest investment trusts, it was something of a surprise to discover they’re domiciled In Dundee, a city famous for cartoon characters like ‘Desperate Dan’, George Galloway, the DC Thomson empire, and little else. Similar to every country in the world, Scotland has a social split between the West Coast and East Coast. Dundee is an East Coast town, deserving of little attention and long been cursed as somewhere you must pass through on the way to somewhere more interesting. But a glance at the history of Alliance Trust reveals an aggressively outgoing company, its very DNA always focussed on investment across the Atlantic and now, globally.

Okay, we’re west coast based and expected to be biased about the wrong side of Scotland.


It appears Alliance Trust enjoy a share price which is shuffling toward the starting position for some positive movement.  Presently trading around 995p, we regard 1,008p as a potential trigger level which should prove capable of providing a lift to an initial 1,070p. Visually, this matches the previous all time high of last year but, should the price close a session above 1,070, we’d hope a further cycle shall commence to our secondary target of 1,164p. The company has certainly experienced a firm climb in value, since the lows of the financial crash in 2009 and now, in the long term, suggests an eventual 1,215p shall provide some sort of future ceiling and probable hesitation.

As always, we’d be careful with that number as, should the market start to “gap” the share price up at the open, it will become entirely possible the market itself has different ideas beyond 1,215p.


The converse scenario demands weakness below 875p to trigger potential reversal to an initial 800p with secondary, if broken, at 656p and hopefully a bounce. Visually, there’s nothing suggesting this scenario shall become an issue.
