Our analysis shows that, unless credit spreads are below 50 basis points, L&G's share price will not rise above 300.0p," said the German bank, which cut its target price on the stock from 345.0p to 290.0p

one of the most stupid comments ive ever read about an insurance company. low credit spreads are bad for open insurers especially in bpa mkt.

mng asset growth was decent H1 and theyve just appointed a super connected asset mgmt guy who is going to push out in europe, middle east and asia which are all under represented by mng. the outlook hasnt been better for their asset raising prospects since demerger.

i think chat-gpt could do better than these muppets although i dont disagree their aviva target

i think commercial property drawdowns last week weighed on aviva and it will have cost some solvency but nothing like they will have made on int rates in h2 albeit its back in again. and excess deaths in older people are running super high so the longevity release potentially is massive

BERENBERG DOWNGRADES L&G AND M&G TO 'HOLD'
31 January 2023
(Sharecast News) - Analysts at Berenberg downgraded insurers Legal & General and M&G from 'buy' to 'hold' on Tuesday, citing high correlation to credit and the UK economy, as well as a lack of organic growth in the latter's asset-management business.
Berenberg thinks Legal & General is "a fantastic business" and arguably the most exposed to the positive trends in bulk purchase annuity. However, it highlighted that the stock's high correlation to credit and the UK economy could cause it to underperform.

"Our analysis shows that, unless credit spreads are below 50 basis points, L&G's share price will not rise above 300.0p," said the German bank, which cut its target price on the stock from 345.0p to 290.0p.

As far as M&G goes, Berenberg said the group offers "an attractive yield" of 9.3% and stated there will undoubtedly be debate about whether the company can launch another share buyback.

However, without organic growth in its asset-management business, Berenberg reckons management commentary on dividend growth will remain "cautious" and, as such, the stock will struggle to rerate, leading it to cut its PT on the stock from 260.0p to 218.0p.

In the same note, Berenberg nudged up its target prices on 'top pick' Aviva and 'buy'-rated Phoenix from 540.0p and 815.0p to 546.0p and 820.0p, respectively.

Didn't RSA say in their 3rd quarter results, the divided was not affected? ie people could have bought or held the shares based on that statement. Isn't that a case of miselling?

Also to take into account is that people are poorer now and will cut back on non essentials and insurance could well be one of them?

There is no reason why based on Aviva's fall in the share price pn that day of RSA results, Aviva could have said they have no intention of cutting any dividends which are in fact based on a wholly misplaced cancelling of the share issue and may continue with that policy too?

Share price is not even 5% below recent highs. What's the panic?

The Sunday Times article on the DLG CEO noted the release below. Intact bought the RSA UK business. The below is at least as relevant to Aviva, perhaps spooking the share price further at the end of last week.

1rob the current trends in UK mortality were initial ignored by the actuaries as a temporary covid blip that wouldnt affect tables. however im now hearing that they are going to change tables and in addition there is now a trend of male mortality declining rather than improving which is a large departure from last 20 years.

all of whcih is of course very positive for annuity writers and aviva is of course one of the largest.

it doesnt really affect their life book albeit the mortality rates for younger people have elevated a bit.

they wont hold outright property in annuities but they do have a large debt book backed by commercial property but its in matching adj portfolio so not that relevant.

clearly av will be inmpacted by elevated claims along wtih DL but they ahve a much mroe diversified portfolio and in any case the personal lines GI busness only contributes about £150mln pa of OFG out of £1.5bln. hwo that works out as a 4% drop in teh share price is of course nonsense

Buy back 10% of the shares in a company performing reasonably and you should get growth in the share price. On TR basis you get the beans.
Simply ramping the dividend is a dangerous game as the underlying earnings growth will be mid single digits - increasing the divi above that growth rate will get you back to borrowing to cover the divi. the true divi is funded from earnings - take the earnings take off the investment required to maintain the growth rate and distribute whats left.

If they have 30p spare that could either be a special or, reduce the share cap. I think what she is doing is right.

When interest rates were around zero for many years then it made sense to buy shares for the dividend but that was dependent also on the buy price as said those buying at around 470p are losing two and a half years of dividends based on todays price plus capital. Buying at 3 pounds or less makes more sense of course but the BoE did lean on Aviva and some others to cancel their dividends and Aviva shareholders have never got that money back as yet. So if one could get 5% or more for X years in savings and not that much more in share dividends and no risk then surely which is the better bet? Hold on for capital appreciation which may or may not happen and the BoE messing about with things.

I mean the decision is different now then it has been for ten years etc. It could make sense buying shares to buy and sell for a modest rise if you could guarantee they go up and down as we think....But????

Buying shares only makes sense on a rising share price and a rising dividend but we are not living in normal times...and may not for some years and the last two weeks have been an eye opener for many experienced people but then so was the stock market crashes over the years..Shares are only worth what people will buy and sell them and nothing more. ie they don't have a real value and neither does cryto currencies which never made sense but again its what people value them at. They are actually worth just well,nothing really!

Jam tomorrow is we all rely on and Aviva share price was a lot higher in the past and when the market goes down then almost everything goes down.

Thing is the cost of living is very hight as are energy prices and there is still a war going on and so we are not in normal times. Remember shareholders saying exactly the same thing as a cash machine in LLOY bank and they are nothing like they used to be with a lot higher share price and ten times more dividends. People were buying AVIVA at 470's a few weeks ago and so its good to hold for promised dividends but they may never occur especially as the BoE will probably enforce banks and Insurers to hold more cash based on the last couple of weeks. Surely the best bet is getting 5% in banks and no risk to capital...well at the moment!

Also it does depend on one's age and paradise lost etc? ;)

The only surprise for me is it's taken this long to re-rate. 5 quid is surely on the cards soon. 30p is a 6% divi at 5 quid. I said a while back AV. share price will be 6 pounds in a couple of years and I'll stick with that.
