Enjoyed reading Speeds article.LRE are very shareholder friendly.After first buying in Jan 2015,I have since trebled my holding which now owes me £4.64 a share,with dividends reinvested.So dividend income for 2016,worked out for me at a 15.4% yield.So personally it is a great core holding.Good to see LRE holding cash for maybe another purchase,or return part of it to shareholders in the payment for the Dec 2016 Special dividend.

The 10% figure still almost surprises me, but it reflects the risk you take when so much [hopefully] comes in Special divs. I wonder to what extent the profit-taking was accentuated by the holiday weekend in the US [Monday=Presidents Day]. If at all. These seem rather nervy times, so profit-taking on a Friday appears par for the course these days. ps. There were some useful insights given in Maloney's talk/analysis [thx Speeds for linking, I don't think I've seen such a transcript for past meetings and it was interesting]. What struck me is how they're strategically de-risking, and running heavy with cash. Either they find good use for it, or hopefully it'll be returned in due course.

Phoenix,ADVFN Financials are now showing a rounded up figure of 73p for the yearly div,s,so you are spot on.Shame about the profit takers yesterday.But would have taken 719,before the results announcement.So up over 5% after results.Happy with all at LRE.Fair play to Minerve taking his profits.Just like to know the company he purchased with the proceeds of LRE.

The FX rate for the div will be set at noon on the R/D 24-Feb. On the previous div we watched the FX rate on the R/D to get a feel for the rate that would be applied: In post 996^ I noted: ------------------------------------------ 'Google suggests these two give live rates: https://www.dailyfx.com/forex-rates hxxp://www.forexlive.com/LiveQuotes Might be interesting to compare these channels vs the actual applied. Perhaps give us a decent data source for future big divs...' ------------------------------------------- and after the rate was eventually published it turned out these two sites were the closest of the several sources we looked at on 14th-Dec [R/D]. Of course it's a small div this time, so no big deal. But just wanted to mention it since after all the talk of trying to divine the rate on the R/D, the best source/s didn't get highlighted. ps.And since I'm doing numbers this morning ... The current, running or trailing yield = divs over the past year/current share price If an estimate is included for the latest div it looks like this: X/D Aug/16 = 3.807p X/D Nov/16 = 60.404p X/D Feb/17 = 8.058p [estimated, 10 cents at 1.241] Total = 72.269p; Current share price = 719p; = Current Yield of 10.05%

Sometimes I find myself digging back on these boards looking for deeper context around results and how the share price reacted. To that end maybe this [Evening Standard, yesterday] might yield some value in future... -------------- 'Insurer Lancashire Holdings notched up its best day on the stock market as shares surged on better-than-expected annual results. The FTSE 250 company managed to blow analyst forecasts out of the water for the final three months of the year despite turbulence in the industry. It made a pre-tax profit in the final quarter of $51 million (£41 million), slightly higher than last year thanks to a strong underwriting performance. UBS analysts had pencilled in a sharp fall, but admitted the result had come in about $20 million, or 64%, higher than they expected as Lancashire “side-stepped some of the larger losses in the market”. The $150 million annual profit was also about $20 million higher than Peel Hunt predicted. Chief executive Alex Maloney warned that market conditions would remain “difficult for the foreseeable future”, but this did not put investors off, with the added fillip of a special dividend to keep them interested. [*JRP*>Presumably the one that should be due in Dec-17?] The shares, which were initially floated on AIM in 2005 before Lancashire upgraded to a full listing, leapt 60p, or 9%, today to 740.5p — their biggest-ever one-day rise. Lancashire was the mid-cap index’s best performer by some distance and its surge stood out on a day when stocks fell. ---------------------- http://www.standard.co.uk/business/market-report-lancashire-holdings-has-best-ever-day-on-market-a3468566.html

I've sold out. Could go higher but wanted to reinvest in another company today. Record high and no real sign of a re-rate is enough for me. Good luck.

The stock it up intra-day c9% on [IMO] pretty dull results; so what's going on, the headline-free silence seems at odds with the stocks response? Going to be interesting to see if any new notifiable major interests come in in the next few days. It's re-taken 750 :)

Interesting to note that this year's full dividend of $0.90 (c72p) will be almost as much in sterling terms as last year's $1.10 (73.5p) due to the fall in sterling vs dollar.

MMD - Those dividends are historical. On the assumption that the market is forward-looking, it is not the $0.10 final dividend that is driving the price forwards this morning. Either results are better than forecast or there is some other factor in there that I haven't identified yet. Will be interesting to see what comes out of the conference call.

I guess this is the part you like the most, Garycook: Dividends The Lancashire Board declared the following dividends during 2016: -- A final dividend relating to 2015 of $0.10 per common share; -- An interim dividend of $0.05 per common share; and -- A special dividend of $0.75 per common share. I make it $0.9 = 72p approx = 10% yield approx at current shareprice levels...
