carcosa: Until the litigation issues are finally resolved I think the likelihood of a big uptrend in the share price is muted. If it goes Hansard's way then a 15+% jump in the shareprice is likely. But that could be a couple years away,...
deepvalueinvestor: They are administrators so get a fee for funds under management and regular savings plans. This means they missed out on the equity rally as most of the underlying clients just want a low risk chunk of their assets in the west. Typically 15% of their wealth.Indeed, rising interest rates would hurt but with increasing wealth in emerging markets they should be getting more investors sheltering funds. Their sales teams haven't done a great job in recent years though and this is why the share price is so depressed but a move to regular savings has improved the quality of the business and reduced the reliance on selling new products. I'm no expert on their business but this is my understanding.
pvb: I guess he can afford it! Only about 2% of what he made on the float. I really don't understand the business of this company, but I still find myself asking: If it can't make money in a bull market for shares and investments when will it make money? A bear market? Why? With it's share price ups and downs, this company looks to be a good trading stock for those so inclined.
pvb: I remember when it was an 11% yield. And that was on a higher share price!
paul_butcher1999: Perhaps they thought given the movements in the share price the last few weeks they had to get the results out quickly as people already knew .... Really annoying that this happens so much with shares (both when news coming out will be good or bad many people seem to have a good idea what is going to be said)
paul_butcher1999: Yes sadly the fall in share price seems to indicate that people know bad news is coming. Really annoying that this seems to happen time and time again with shares I follow. May not be that this time of course, but I won't be surprised by bad news on 29th now
garycook: Anyone know what is the problem with the HSD share price at the moment?
grahamburn: Today's RNS removes a significant uncertainty for the company and should have a positive effect on the share price over time. However, a careful reading of the first paragraph (below) does raise a continuing uncertainty which seems to have been glossed over by the statement: "Hansard Global plc ("Hansard" or "The Group"), the specialist long-term savings provider, today confirmed that, through a court mediation process, Hansard Europe Limited has agreed a settlement of €1.5 million in relation to an underlying claim of approximately €5.5m in Norway. This settlement, without any admission of liability, encompassed 47 of the 48 policyholders that have initiated litigation totalling €7.2m in Norway." So, there is one remaining policyholder who has NOT settled and it would seem, by a simple arithmetical subtraction, that that remaining policyholder has a claim for €1.7m (ie more than the total settlement for all the other 47). On top of that, there will also be substantial further legal fees to settle/fight this outstanding claim.
loganair: I read a report that gave HSD a Fair Value of 96.32p per share which was written when the share price was 118p. Well! we are nearly there now. I am holding fire as I still think some thing is going to happen with the Euro whether it be Greece, Spain or even France. When it does I can see stocks such as Hansard and the insurance stocks fall by at least 25% or even may be a little more at which time I'll pile back-in. Look at France how their unit labour costs have risen by nearly 30% since 2000 while Germany by no more than 8%. Some thing has to give....... France is more a Latin counrty like Spain rather than Northern European like Germany and the Scandinavian countries.
chrisb1103: Appreciated your posted forecasts and comments loganair. A factor widely reported with HSD share price is poor liquidty, and so currently with a seller the share price has taken a hit. I remain a buyer here at this price for income clearly given the yield but also opportunities for capital growth. Q2 new business figures are due on 27/01 and if they are as good as Q1 - GBP51.8m, an increase of 58.4% over the same period in the previous financial year (Q1 2010: GBP32.7m)... we'll see. The interim divi is announced on 24/02 for XD 2/03 so another likely share price driver here. Whilst i note their cash has clearly reduced from the very high levels of 2008/09 they have "continued to generate strong net cash flows", and so unless i'm missing something glaring (has happened before), the divis are surely comfortably safe. With the yield so high you have to feel it must come down by a rising share price. The reported sustained impressive Q by Q Growth in new business must surely be driving up IFRS reported EPS with scope to beat forecasts above imo. I do regard HSD as a solid player in the sector and note their regarded "low-risk business model" and industry beating margins. However, DYOR goes without saying when it comes to wading through the complexities of the accounts of a financial services organisation.
