City of London Investment Group Plc (LON:CLIG) is the topic of conversation with Robin Savage, Research Director at Zeus Capital. Robin compares today’s interim management statement for the 3 months to 31 March with his own expectations, explains how operating profits of £1.5m a month translates to a full year, and given CLIG shares at 385p are trading on under 10x next years’ earnings and on more than a 6.2% dividend yield does this make CLIG shares attractive in Robins opinion.
