masurenguy: Very quiet here since the interims. The recent bid for Amlin elicited the following comment on TMF. Esure (LSE: ESUR). It currently trades on a P/E ratio of just 13 despite its share price having risen by 17% since the turn of the year. And, like Amlin and Direct Line, it appears to have confidence in its future earnings capacity since it pays out 75% of profit as a dividend, which means that it currently yields 5.7%. Certainly, it has struggled to fully offset the cost of personal injury claims, which put a dampener on its most recent set of results. But, with a sound balance sheet and low valuation, it could be a bid target.

speedsgh: Whilst the dividend may be attractive, it would be somewhat more comforting if the share price was able to finally break out of the downtrend it's been in since listing in Mar 2013. Unfortunately no sign of it yet. Dividend income is scant consolation when one's capital is being constantly eroded.

redsonning: Well Invesco generally know what they are doing, and I think they fit into the general description of a "big boy". So the share price is right today, and will be right in a few weeks too....

masurenguy: speedsgh - 499: Mas - FY2013 div was 15.80p giving a historical yield of 7.4% based on the current 213.7p offer price. Even if we ignore the special 1.50p div paid alongside the interim div in Oct, the 3.60p interim payment represented a 44% increase on the FY2013 interim (2.50p). Would one not expect an increase in the current full year div compared to FY2013? Digital Look are currently forecasting 17.80p which gives an 8.4% forward yield (don't know whether their 17.80p includes specials). Would be interested to know what you are basing your forecasts on? Agree with you that it is largely sentiment against the sector that is driving the share price action at present + that ESUR are good value at this price. Of course that is not to say that they may not be even better value in the weeks ahead! O/T - Do you follow LRE? Would appreciate your thoughts if you have any. TIA speedsgh - I'm assuming that the final dividend will be possibly increased by a lower percentage due to the slippage in Q3 and might be upped perhaps by 10% to say 14.9p which would provide a FY dividend of 20p including the additional 1.5p at the interim stage. Worse case scenario is that they hold it at 13.6p which would result in 18.7p for the year which would still be an 18% increase on last year. I think that the insurance cycle, which has been in decline for the past two and a half years is bottoming out and I think that their reference to stabilising and increasing premiums in the recent statement is a further indicator of this. At a PER of around 9.6 for the current year - and possibly even lower for next year if premiums harden further - a yield of between 8.7% and 9.3%, no debt, a strong balance sheet and quality management, this is currently undervalued. The shareprice this morning touched the November ATL since last years listing and unless there is a further and unexpected deterioration in Q4 I would expect to see the shareprice start to recover. I used to hold both Aviva and L & G but at the moment ESUR is my only insurance stock, which I hold in a separate ISA portfolio that is concentrated on income yield. I occasionally look at LRE as it is on my watchlist and may climb aboard when there are some further indications that the sector cycle has finally turned.

But the indicative price range doesn't suggest much scope for share price upside, while the group will face plenty of trading headwinds going forward. True, as motor insurers go - and esure does earn 71 per cent of its premiums from motor business - the group doesn't look in bad shape. Its 2012 full-year figures revealed a solidly profitable combined ratio (of claims to premiums) of 92.8 per cent - better than rival Admiral' s (ADM) 95.2 per cent ratio and rather more attractive than Direct Line's barely profitable ratio of 99.2 per cent. The group's investment return reached a decent 5.2 per cent, too - not at all bad for a portfolio which is 96 per cent invested in cash and bonds. But esure's motor market is under pressure - on average, UK motor rates slumped 12.7 per cent during 2012. What's more, the motor market is facing significant regulatory challenges. Back in September, the Office of Fair Trading referred the sector to the Competition Commission after concluding that "competition appears not to be working effectively in the private motor insurance market". That probe could take up to two years and may result in further premium rate pressure. Moreover, reflecting European Union law, gender-neutral insurance pricing became mandatory in December - a potential threat for esure given that 95 per cent of its Sheilas' Wheels customers are female. "They're operating in a sector that's not particularly appealing," says analyst Hari Sivakumaran of broker Oriel Securities. Given that backdrop, the proposed pricing of the IPO has faced significant scrutiny. Specifically, 35-50 per cent of esure will be offered for an indicative price range of between 240p and 310p - on a mid-point basis, this suggests a market value of around £1bn. Oriel Securities estimates that such a valuation would imply a share price rating of about 12 times - not substantially out of line with Direct Line's 11 times multiple and Admiral's 13-14 times rating. On that basis, Mr Sivakumaran believes the proposed valuation range "is not too unreasonable". But, given the tough trading outlook, it doesn't suggest scope for significant upside, either. IC VIEW: Investors hoping to see the shares soar upon flotation may be disappointed - the likely pricing looks in line with that of its peers, but trading prospects are hardly ideal. But that doesn't mean the shares don't have attractions. That's because esure aims to pay 50 per cent of post-tax profits in dividends each year, plus a special dividend representing 20 per cent of post-tax profits - analysts think that suggests a yield of about 6 per cent. If it can deliver on that, then buying the shares and holding them for income may not be such a bad strategy.
