medieval blacksmith: tournesol Most insurance requirements are unique from the client's perspective but that doesn't make it unique from the insurer. A client can take its insurance needs to many companies in this space and get a quote for cover and eventually it will come down to cheapest quoted price versus confidence in claims delivery. If you offer a bespoke service then the more bespoke it is the more expensive your cost base is going to be. I think as investors we should be very careful not to take on the wishful thinking that insurance companies would like us to take at face value in that they sell unique product and that it is bespoke and therefore has durable competitive advantage and healthy margins. If the sector is witnessing healthy margins and excellent growth then it will, without a doubt, move towards commoditisation - like for example when hedge funds bundled into reinsurance. At the end of the day the competitive advantage (or not) with the likes of Beasley will be accuracy of their risk management in delivering the quote and not in the fact they have a unique product - which they don't.
tournesol: Berenberg comment "Beazley is clearly ahead of peers in the fastest growing, increasingly complex and non-commoditised product line in insurance; we think this presents a rare opportunity for profitable and sustainable growth," said Berenberg, which also raised its target price on the stock from 410.0p to 460.0p. The German bank added that Beazley also confirmed in its interim results that not only had its $340.0m Covid-19 loss estimate for 2020-21 remained "robust", but also that it had not incurred the additional $50.0m expected loss related to events in the second half, as US and European economies have largely opened up. source: Hargreaves Lansdown
tournesol: Berenberg upgrades from 'hold' to 'buy' and raises target price from 410.0p to 460.0p; RBC stays at 'outperform' but raises target price from 475.0p to 500.0p. source:-
tournesol: The co I wish I could buy is the one that Andrew Horton is moving to - QBE. Horton was CEO at BEZ for 13 years and before that was the CFO. He has done an outstanding job and has presided over a fantastic long term success at BEZ which has consistently topped the league tables of its peers. He is off to try his hand at QBE which consistently been at the bottom of the league of its peers and has not made a profit in yonks. If he does even half as well at QBE as he did at Bez then shares in QBE will soar. Unfortunately my broker (HL) won't allow me to buy QBE (an Aussie share). Which is a real shame.
ianb5004: Excellent results, ive been banging the drum for the value in bez since buying at 295p. Fully expect divi reinstating end of year and then share price should recover quicker. £6 pre covid and i see no reasons it cant get back there if the recovery in business continues.
swanny27: I'm out as well now so looking for it to drop again, but should have used some of the profit over the last few months to tuck some away for the long term. It has been brilliant buying the dips here over the last year. Question I have is the end of day UT for months has been 380,000 shares, or multiples of this, yet we never get an accumulation RNS. Who is buying and more importantly who is selling. Maybe it is someone just selling to themselves for a different fund as the trades happen every day, whatever the share price is doing. Whatever, this company is way undervalued compared to others in the sector, especially those tech ones like Lemonade, who have nothing to offer that is better than AFB, it's just somehow they have been valued on a high multiple of premium, rather than a multiple of profit.
spooky: The share price move does not make sense, the shares should bottom around here or the chart will begin to look pretty ugly. The only thing i can add is that a weak dollar is a negative but that in itself is not enough to warrant the move we have seen. I am not long but have been waiting for the first sign of some positivity in the price action before buying, still waiting. I am surprised.
ttny2004: I agree. Frustrating to say the least.Did you join the Q1 investors update call at 8am yesteday? Was interesting mainly Q&A.Nothing bad but clarified many points.Was a bad day overall in markets yesterdayDue to inflation fears in US and potential US interest rate increases in US . All based on fear and no policy decisions. Markets recovered strong in US yesterday.Means UK markets should bounce this morning. Asia markets performed well overnight. Be interesting to see how BEZ performs? Ridiculous share price Be nice to see directors buying showing their confidence.
hopan: I just checked BEZ reissue price and it is 329p on May 18, 2020. So Friday price of 326, it is lower than the issue price. For HSX: the Capital Raise of 57,693,425 new Ordinary Shares raised gross proceeds of approximately £375 million. The Placing Price of 650 pence represents a discount of 6.1 per cent to the closing share price of 692.4 pence on 5 May 2020. The Placing Shares and the Subscription Shares (together, the "New Shares") being issued represent, in aggregate, approximately 19.99 per cent of the existing issued ordinary share capital of Hiscox prior to the Capital Raise. If you look at the 5yr performance of two stocks, you can see that while BEZ is almost at the same level, HSX is down 8.50%...
its the oxman: Bez are just over 10p above their placing price and not much above their covid lows, Hiscox is closer to 30% above its placing price. I know little about the sector though the long term 20 year graphs suggest this is a sector that can perform well. More tempted to buy bez as thinking there is more upside and just as likely to gain or suffer from extra claims or am I wrong.
