|I wonder if they will also benefit from a 'luddite' backlash, as I'm sure 9/10 people are sick of talking to call-centres and having to spell out names and words. Sod PC, that is actually what happens and a vast number of people are not happy with that level of service and hassle.
In fact, if Saga moved into mobiles etc. with the same philosophy...??
I talked to someone recently I know who worked putting in call-centres for a bank. Like all very large projects where egos and mini internal empires are at stake, the actual financial justifications are unlikely to ever get revisited. His opinion was that if they were, given the amount of time the operators spend on each call, the whole system would simply not be financially viable.
The original basis worked on paper because of cheaper labour, but of course if the calls take 5x the time... and then the hacked off customer calls back again and again...
and of course we know why the calls take so long, don't we ? although the BBC will never say it.
"While you're on the phone and I'm waiting for that change to go through, I should let you know that you can get £25 if you recommend Virgin to someone. Is there anyone you can think of ?"
"What sort of a stupid question is that ? No, you're fixing the 3rd. problem this year and last time your broadband went off, your engineers didn't work over the weekend, because the problem was not a large enough network problem. In fact, you've now annoyed me so much that I'm going to go around telling people that Virgin is rubbish."
"Now, put me through to the idiot that trains you."|
|Wish I bought more now but can't grumble. Should go higher if results are sound. And let's face it, it's target market is only going to get bigger.|

|Been very lucky here I just bought a big chunk of these for the divi in a SIPP at about 185p, with the objective of holding them for a long time. Looked like a low, so jumped in.
Perhaps it will hold around the resistance at 220p this time, if there's something material in the air.|
|Exceptional move from SAGA the last three weeks, it's either some info has slipped out from the impending results or they have become a target.
A 21.7mill uncrosssing trade is unusually large for SAGA!|
|A good RNS from SAGA this morning.|
|Well, at least the Brexit voters can blame the government rather than themselves when they find the going gets tougher and nothing has changed in the way of jobs, immigration, the NHS etc. etc.
Good time to be in the civil service or any pen-pushing admin. job related to government I reckon - at least 3 years of re-jigging every bit of everything related to the EU - special committees etc. etc.|
|Suspect today's discount rate change won't have a material impact on SAGA. Interesting that no RNS though.
What an absolutely ridiculous decision by the Government. Guaranteed to add 5% to insurance premiums from March and destabilising the insurance industry in the meantime as none of the companies were projecting such a low discount rate and this hits their capital surpluses. To me a negative discount rate is ridiculous. I'm an accountant and don't see discount rates below 1% on anything I look at. Having a negative discount rate looks and is totally ridiculous and a direct result of printing money. The government are stoking up massive inflation for later in the year. First food and energy, now insurance. What next?|
|Been near there before. It's usually news that moves the sp, with Saga you get hardly any.|
|When you look at the header long term chart...around 225p double top?...|
|Yes 50 myself, but I don't class myself as a SAGA customer. Maybe in 10 or 20 years!|
|Yes tempted to add as convinced some value here and I am not far off becoming a Saga customer age wise myself.|
its the oxman
|I've bought a few today. Very strong brand in a growth market. Its really an insurance company though. Not convinced about combining with travel and so could well do an Esure type demerger or something.|
|Agree, hope next update gets us moving. Down a few % on this but remain hopeful.|
its the oxman
|The share price has seriously underperformed the market over the past year by 20%, and it's difficult to see why. No profit warnings or bad results are forecast yet.|
|Think US Cruise Liner company will probably buy this out...|
|This has a very bizzare price movement...|
|The market is currently not appreciating....see what ESUR did....I think similar could happen here...|
|Perhaps that is what Lance was hinting at in the trading update diku:
'Significant progress has been made in analysing the customer database and mapping customer activities and behaviours, to identify key drivers of future value for the business. Further details of this work will be shared at a Capital Markets Event to be held on the same day as the full year results announcement, 29 March 2017.'|
|What chance this company gets split up to get more value out for shareholders......Holiday/leisure & Insurance....|
|180 is hopefully going to provide support.
Nothing has been aired to cause this sudden weakness so hopefully it's just market fluctuations with a wide trading range 180/220|
|RSI looking grossly oversold here...CEO bought shares recently...|
|This investment is a dog|
|Yes, just the move up off the bottom OXMAN. Not really a Santa rally, bit I think the biggest single move for some time...it's good to see :-))|
