trikytree: Lol, you’re right, 3 and a half year highs then. I think it has much further to go too in these defensive inflatory times but I like to bank a profit every so often and move things around. If ADM recovers whilst BATS wobbles I’d probably revert. Happy to bank some profit for now and give ADM a chance.
bountyhunter: Admiral are definitely cheaper than at least most of the competition, not much point in going anywhere else. This is a well run company offering competitive products, value will come through in the end and the current price is underpinned by the dividend.
bountyhunter: Yes I noticed that as well and take it as a positive sign. Admiral is a well run company which has been dragged down by the sector blues but likely to be one of the strongest in the inevitable rebound whenever that occurs. The yield at this price is near enough 7%.
cwa1: Nice to see a non-exec splashing out a reasonable amount of cash on shares:-
bountyhunter: JJ, I think it's a sector thing rather than Adm specific down to consumers affordability however Admiral is competitively priced and should do ok in the long run imv.
porsche1945: With the share price having tanked this has put on 14 pc in five years, take into ac inflation its flat, so mostly a dividend play. Another fairly pointless ftse 100 share.
fuji99: ADM could also increase its premiums if the inflation effect is felt or/and those who had accidents want insurance. If one compares the inflation effects on manufacturers and other producers such as food and clothing, ADM is the least exposed. In addition, many people still work from home. Also as petrol at the pump has risen dramatically, people have tendency to drive less than before; this means to me that the probability for accidents to happen is very low thus accidents claims going down. So IMO, ADM is the least exposed.
killing_time: 15 Nov 2021 (Sharecast News) - Analysts at Berenberg changed their position on Admiral Group on Monday after taking a fresh look at the insurer. Berenberg stated Admiral was one of the "highest-quality names" in the European insurance sector and noted that after "a spectacular run" the shares had dropped roughly 20% since August. As a result, Berenberg now thinks an opportunity has presented itself for investors to begin re-building a position in the name, leading it to upgrade the stock from 'hold' to 'buy' and increase its price target for its shares from 2,895.0p to 3,245.0p. "While the shares are still at a premium to the pre-pandemic levels, we believe Admiral has warranted its re-rating and the detailed work we have done on reserve releases and profit commissions highlight that we believe the earnings risk is still to the upside going into 2022," said the analysts. "Moreover, with Admiral trading with an elevated dividend yield between now and September 2021, we believe it is the most attractive way to play to the UK motor insurance space."
unastubbs: The only Welsh company in the FTSE100 - and that's a sosban fact! from Questor (Daily Telegraph today) Questor: buy this car insurer – its 5pc yield won’t stop it growing Questor share tip: this company seems to do everything right, from the way it funds its business to how it uses its data An entrepreneurial insurance company sounds like a contradiction in terms: we tend to expect our financial services firms to be predictable and staid. But the London stock market offers at least one exception. Admiral may now be a household name and have millions of customers, but it was founded just 30 years ago and retains the entrepreneurial spirit of its founders even though they have stepped back from running the company day to day. “It was started in 1991 by two guys who’d been to business school together,” said Simon Young, who has held the stock in his Axa Framlington UK Equity Income fund since he took it over in 2018 and in other funds before that. “But the new chief executive has also been there a long time and is cast in the same mould.” He said the business had innovated constantly over its three decades and remained ahead of its rivals. “It’s always been a low-cost operation,” Mr Young said. “The founders realised that people loved to be surprised by low prices and innovation. It very quickly started to cut out the middleman by selling its car cover directly over the internet – even in the early 2000s it did more than 60pc of its business online.” The most important thing for an insurance business is the underwriting: assessing the risk involved in each policy accurately and pricing it appropriately. Admiral got off to a good start by getting this right. “By great attention to detail the founders got to the point where they really understood underwriting. In particular, they realised that the more questions you asked, the better you priced your policies,” said Mr Young. “Other insurers have not really caught up. Some don’t have the analytics, the best-in-class underwriting discipline, and end up more with a boom-bust cycle in profitability. Admiral has been consistently profitable.” Next the firm’s bosses realised that they had a lot of data and thought: what can we do with it all? “So they started, the price comparison website,” the Axa fund manager said. But they also used their data to help the company diversify into other types of insurance. Now, in addition to almost 4.8m cars in Britain, Admiral insures 1.2m homes and 100,000 travellers. It has further broadened its offering into personal loans, for which it has 100,000 customers. Then, in Mr Young’s words, came the realisation that “people in Europe want the same things”. He said the insurer had suffered a “false start” in Germany but now had businesses in France, Italy and Spain, as well as America. All told it has about 7.5m policyholders. “Five years ago the firm was losing £5m a year in Europe but it now makes £100m, against £600m in Britain,” Mr Young said. “I think it’s at a tipping point on the Continent and the eventual prize could be multiples of the current figure.” He said the insurer had also adopted a clever way to fund its operations. “It’s good at getting third parties – ‘reinsurers217; – to provide the capital to back the policies it sells. In Britain it underwrites only about a quarter of its business itself but it still earns a commission on each policy as well as any income from add-ons. “Also, as an insurer you get paid up front when the policy starts. This cash, called the ‘float’, is about £4bn a year and, because it earns interest, Admiral will be a big beneficiary if interest rates rise.” He said that, as a result of this funding structure, the company made returns on its equity capital of more than 50pc. Using other people’s capital also allows you to pay most of your profits to shareholders as dividends – almost 90pc of profits in Admiral’s case, a very high figure. Normally keeping back so little to fund expansion might ring alarm bells, but Admiral’s model clearly works: since flotation its shares have achieved an annual total return of more than 22pc. “People ask: what is Admiral’s secret sauce? My answer is that it does many things better than anyone else in the market and doesn’t rest on its laurels. The direction of travel is right and I hope it will retain the nimbleness it had when it was a ‘challenger217; business,” Mr Young said. The 5pc yield (if we include the special dividend)is naturally attractive to income investors but those who want growth could do worse than simply reinvest the dividends. Questor says: buy
