Looking awful now. Looks as if they weren't taking their own advice when it came to "no nonsense" and in going after market share they've taken on a hell of a lot of unprofitable business.

Company: FBD Holdings Prior Post(s): 2012 & 2013 Ticker: FBD:ID Price: EUR 17.20 It's steady as she goes at FBD...its reliability lulls one into forgetting how spectacularly the company's delivered in such a bad market over the last few years. In 2013, gross premiums increased by 2.0% – seemingly modest, but this is the highest premium growth since 2006. It actually masks a 0.7% decline in average rates, offset by a 2.6% increase in policy volume – reflecting another year of increasing market share (at 13.4%, FBD's highest ever). However, 2013 genuinely looks like an inflection point for the industry – rates began hardening in H2, while insurable values also began to turn up marginally. Further premium hikes seem inevitable, as the industry suffered a combined operating ratio (COR) of 109% in 2012 & a likely worse outcome in 2013. Which stands in stark contrast to FBD's far superior COR of 94.1% in 2013 (up from 89.4%). The yoy increase arises directly from (severe) weather-related & other exceptional claims – it's reassuring to see the company's attritional loss ratio actually enjoyed a modest decline. Looking to 2014, management's comfortable YTD severe weather claims are within budget, but expects a pick-up in regular claims in line with increasing economic activity. While one can never predict positive/negative claim reversals, FBD has a reassuring history of increasing market share & high returns on equity – plus a bullet-proof balance sheet (zero debt & 86% of its portfolio invested in deposits & bonds). This makes for very consistent investment returns – add in a nice bump from their (small) equity allocation, and diluted EPS (of 131 cts) held up well vs. a decline in operating earnings (to 136 cts). This delivered a 2013 Return on Equity (RoE) of 17.3% & a year-end NAV of 823 cts. Now, there's obviously a few different ways to measure RoE – I come out higher myself, but I also note management guidance suggesting 2014 RoE might be closer to 15%. Averaging them all out, I think my prior 2.25 Price/Book multiple still looks about right. [NB: I usually value an 8-12% RoE at a 1.0 P/B - in terms of its history, financial strength & superior industry metrics, FBD deserves the strong end of this range]. A 33.25 ct dividend is due to be paid, but that's exceeded by likely earnings YTD: (EUR 823 ct NAV + 40.9 ct EPS YTD – 33.25 ct Dividend) * 2.25 P/B = EUR 18.69 FBD remains slightly under-valued – I hold a 3.7% portfolio stake. With the company earning a prospective 15%+ RoE in the medium-term, I continue to look forward to an excellent compounded return on investment. Price Target: EUR 18.69 Upside/(Downside): 9%

A reasonable set of results yet again, but the market didn't like them as much as was anticipated. The outlook, "stable but no growth" doesn't support a shareprice which has risen by 90% in a year. I expect to see these retrace to the £12.50 point again. I think you were very wise, Wexboy, to reduce on Aug 9th. Hope you got £16.20 or more.

Hi folks, What's not to like in FBD's annual results today?! Um, the market seemed a bit disappointed...I guess it got a little too excited ahead of the results! Anyway, I've updated my Fair Value Price Target for FBD - see here: http://wexboy.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/total-produce-fbd-results/ Cheers, Wexboy
