jrphoenixw2: Woodford picked up another 180k shares on Monday, with the RNS showing his holding as 25.95mm/13% ... And a few minutes later, L+G sold c55k taking them from 4-3%
jrphoenixw2: Hi FP, here's a file-note I had for the previous div :- ---------- 'LRE Results [dated 18/2/16] - Dividends The Lancashire Board declared the following dividends during 2015: -- A final dividend of $0.10 and a special dividend of $0.50 (both relating to 2014); -- An interim dividend of $0.05 per common share; and -- A special dividend of $0.95 per common share. Lancashire today announces that its Board of Directors has declared a final dividend for 2015 of $0.10 per common share (approximately GBP0.07 per common share at the current exchange rate), which will result in an aggregate payment of approximately $19.8 million. The dividend will be paid in Pounds Sterling on 23 March 2016 (the "Dividend Payment Date") to shareholders of record on 26 February 2016 (the "Record Date") using the GBP / $ spot market exchange rate at 12 Noon London time on the Record Date.' ------------ So, the short answer is I hear the results in US$ [as above], and can make an estimated conversion to £. A few days later on the R/D I'll note the £/$ rate at noon, and if I've time refine my noted estimate. This is pretty much precisely the accrual I expect to see on my broker statement. The actual rate is published somewhere. It might come through as an RNS alert in the news-feeds, get advised by my broker, and/or get noted on the LRE/Investors website; right know I don't quite recall. Ironic you ask this, as each time I seem to go around in circles trying to remember where the definitive final real rate is listed... hehe... so I'd be interested if there is a bullet-proof source for this info too, so I can note it down once and for all!
jrphoenixw2: Maloney the CEO has just picked up another 19k shares.
jrphoenixw2: I'd like to see a plot of (Prior 12Mo divs) / (share price), over several years. Over the prior 5 years the share price only dipped this low back briefly at the end of '14. Shares don't get both beaten down and at the same time remain no-brainer sure-wins. That's my concern.
jrphoenixw2: Prior 12 month divs = circa 73.5p / share price 536 = 13.7% What do people think will give? The price rally, the Dec 'Special' get axed, both, neither? I can't see it going on like this for ever...
cwa1: Indeed. If it had been 2 or 3 thousand shares I would certainly have suspected an attempt to "puff" the share price but £250K is not small change even to a person of his, no doubt, wealth. Time will tell.....
speedsgh: Some interesting tweets in past 24hrs from Adam McNestrie (editor of The Insurance Insider) - HTTPS:// Adam McNestrie ‏@adammcnestrie 3h 3 hours ago John Hamblin formerly of Cathedral doesn't have a new job to go to yet: sources. Adam McNestrie ‏@adammcnestrie 4h 4 hours ago Lancashire smashed this morning £100mn off the share price. Backs against the wall. I've asked for an interview - let's see what comes back. Adam McNestrie ‏@adammcnestrie 20h 20 hours ago Mark Wilson and Simon King have resigned from Cathedral. Whole business disintegrating. Disaster for Lancashire. That's the top 5 guys. EDIT - Also this tweet from mid-Feb now seems astute in light of recent events (assuming last earnout payment has now occurred)... Adam McNestrie ‏@adammcnestrie Feb 18 Lancashire not replacing Cathedral CEO Peter Scales. Real question is what happens day of the last earnout payment - either Feb or March...
bandit99: share price makes it look like there is some other serious bad news attached to their departure
speedsgh: New LRE article on the IC website today. A small teaser as it is subscription only... "News late last month that New York-listed insurer XL Group (US:XL) had made an approach for Lloyd's underwriter Catling (CGL) has helped fuel speculation that wider sector consolidation could be on the cards. At present, insurance analysts mainly think that deal-doing in the UK is more likely to manifest itself through bolt-on acquisitions among the sector's smaller players and, crucially, mid-sized Lancashire (LRE) is being mooted as a potential target. Add that to the group's fairly modest share price rating, as well as its impressive dividend prospects, and snapping up Lancashire's shares now could prove lucrative..." In the detail they do mention that XL's offer for CGL is c1.5x forecast NTA which, if applied to LRE, implies a takeover price of c620p so not too much of a premium to the current level. Also Westhouse are forecasting USD 1.35 dividend for FY2014 just ended so, seeing as USD 1.25 has already been paid out, they obviously aren't expecting another special div alongside the normal final maintenance div of USD 0.10.
garycook: Speedsgh,Thanks for the Info.So this year roughly 15% return for LRE Shareholders.So looking at 5 previous years the worst case scenario would be a full year Dividend of 80 USD or 50p a Share giving roughly a 9% return if LRE Share price stays around 560 ?
