iamnotanumber6: James, I note you skirted round my fourth query, ie. why you took out a short then publicised it. It is one thing trying to disrupt an industry which is due a shake-up - which is fair enough - but it seems decidedly iffy practice to actively try and bring down the share price of one of the main rivals of your own clients (note, not even a direct rival to your operation). You admit it's not a big bet, so why bother? It's a bit like Expedia when it started out publishing a sell note on British Airways. If you are confident in your business model, then why branch out into trading in derivatives and publishing research on quoted companies - are you a price comparison website, a share dealer or a research house? If I was a shareholder in Funeralbooker I would not be too impressed at this diversification, I'd rather you were running the business rather than faffing about on the DTY board on ADVFN.
iamnotanumber6: I hold here, albeit I have been reducing as it's my biggest holding. It's an interesting report, but here are the points it raises with me: 1. I have absolutely no problem with the lack of branding - to me it's a strength, as why change the goodwill of a trusted local brand? Besides, it's quite clearly spelt out in the brochure you reproduced that the individual undertaker is part of a company. 2. Is the cost of a funeral really a priority when one has lost a loved one? It's one thing settling down in front of a computer with a coffee to pore over the cheapest holidays, but surely you don't act the same when sorting out a funeral? 3. Why is raising prices over a period so terrible? It's not as if they are a monopoly (like for example many rail companies over a particular route). Surely the mark of a good company is maximising its income by raising its prices to the most the market can bear? 4. But the real question I have is why are you putting out negative research on a quoted rival? OK, you admit you are shorting the stock, but it does seem an odd thing to do, or are you simply trying to move the DTY price in your favour? Do your shareholders know that you are gambling some of their funds on a derivative trade? And why aren't you letting your business speak for itself, rather than indulging in what some might call dirty tricks? Indeed, some prospective customers might be put off by a firm which concentrates on derivative trading and share research rather than what it's supposed to be offering?
grupo guitarlumber: Alan Oscroft | Wednesday, 2nd August, 2017 | More on: DTY DVO One of my favourite ever headlines from The Onion was World death rate unchanged at 100%, and as long as that remains true, the long-term customer base for Dignity (LSE: DTY) seems pretty much guaranteed. Earnings per share almost doubled at the UK’s’ largest funeral operator between 2012 and 2016, and investors piled in and created a typical growth spike, The share price soared, but from round the middle of 2015 it’s been pretty flat, and today stands at 2,552p. Early earnings growth looks set to cool, with analysts expecting just a 4% rise this year, but Wednesday’s interim results suggest…

miata: Investec turning more cautious on Dignity Whilst we continue to view Dignity as a core holding and small upgrades mean that we are able to nudge up our price target to 1424p, the shares have had an excellent run and are, in our view looking relatively fully valued in the short term. As a result we move our recommendation from Buy to Add. The company is next due to update in mid-May when it issues a Q1 IMS, but the main performance catalyst is likely to be the cash return, which could be announced in late Q3 / Q4. Forecasts updated – we've now updated our forecasts for the recent preliminary results. As expected our forecasts for FY13E are largely unchanged and, whilst we leave our FY14E operational forecasts unchanged, continued reductions in the corporation tax rate have triggered a 3% upgrade to our FY14E EPS forecast (see over for details). From an operational perspective our forecasts assume a 1.5% decline in the death rate in FY13E and factor in only a partial closing of the Yew / Dignity average income per funeral gap. Cash return on the cards – we remain of the view that Dignity will announce a cash return this year, with late Q3 / Q4 the most likely timing (subject to bond markets). Our model suggests that a cash return of around 100p would be between 4% and 5% enhancing at the current share price and we would expect Dignity to use the same structure as last time (issue of B and C shares to allow investors to elect between capital and income, subsequent redemption of B and C shares, followed by a share capital reorganisation: to all intents and purposes a share buy-back). Valuation – we continue to value the shares at 20x earnings, which is roughly 1x the sustainable TSR (15% EPS growth, circa 1.5% dividend yield, with the triennial cash return adding around 3% on an annualised basis). This gives a price target of 1424p when applied to our rolling 12 months EPS forecast.
jebenn1: Saw a piece on the (poor quality breakfast) news this morning saying that local authorities were putting up prices significantly for crematoria and burial. Figures being talked about were 10-20% increases although there were some higher percentages. Good news I would assume for DTY but would be please to hear your views. Bought in to the company yesterday having had my eye on it for a year or two. I have never as far as I remember used charts to influence a buy/sell decision but just eye balling the charts above had me hoping that the share price bounces off the trend line as it has a few times before.
eburne1960: OK, how about an example: You buy 1000 shares @£7 now, total cost £7,000. After the capital return, you will have cash 1000 x £1 = £1,000. The share price would drop to £6 normally, so you would have 1000 x £6 = £6,000. Total value of what you end up with: £6,000 + £1,000 = £7,000. But because of the 6 for 7 consolidation you will end up with 857 shares, the share price will rise from the theoretical £6 to £7 as a result of the consolidation, so 857 x £7 = approx £6,000. Plus the £1000 cash gives you £7,000. If you then used the cash you received to reinvest in DTY shares you would be able to buy: £1,000 divided by £7 = 143 shares. 143 shares plus the 857 you already own = 1000 shares - the holding you started with. That's the point spudders, it is simply a return of a chunk of the business to the shareholders in the form of a cash payment to do with as they wish - you will still own the same proportion of the company you did beforehand. Obviously, this example ignores day-to-day market fluctuations affecting the share price.
eburne1960: Spuds, think about it: c. 15% of the company's worth is being taken out of the company and given to the shareholders. Therefore the value of the company must fall by c. 15%. The share price itself will not move much because the number of shares in issue will be consolidated to take account of the return of capital. The IC buy rating holds whether you buy before the capital return or after, as if you buy before the return you will get some of your money back shortly afterwards.
maniac3: As usual the share price dips with good news. Not to worry if they go low enough a good opportunity to top up.
romi2nikki1: brief uplifting note from KBC ( anyone with TD Waterhouse acc can access. "The Dignity share price has dropped back by 20% over the last month. There has been no change in underlying trading and the only negative news is the lower return on the company's cash balances. We suspect this to be short-lived as the return on acquisitions looks more compelling currently. In essence, we believe the decline to be due to a rotation out of low beta stocks and into those with greater recovery potential. This provides a golden opportunity for those that favour secure, long-term growth companies to invest at an attractive level. The rating is now only 12.2x to December 2010E, with a FCF yield of 9%. This is low for a company with a very consistent performance and excellent longterm prospects. Furthermore the shares look very oversold on the RSI (Bloomberg: DTY Equity RSI GO) as shown below."( sorry dont do charts)
