paddyfool: it would be interesting if you had a look at the raises made after 9/11 and subsequent performance of insurers share prices.....We are now in the hardest market in living memory where the insurers are for the next two to three years in charge of pricing.
schofip: Well I am still not convinced even after a substantial rise. Just because they have been able to raise money does not alter the business model ( Covid liabilities and investment returns) and now share holdings have been diluted.
fadilz: Placing 15% - possibly answers your questions. Not sure whether this is distress or opportunity - I guess tomorrow's share price reaction will tell.
schofip: BEZ has been hammered down during this pandemic. Does anyone understand what its liabilities are i.e claims for what. Not looking for estimated numbers just the type of liabilities. Or is it that the money it would normally invest to pay claims has been lost or hit by a collapse in share prices. Just trying to better understand the dynamics.
tournesol: I mentioned a share purchase by A Horton. I see he recently sold 500k worth of shares to settle a tax bill. Wish I had tax bills like that. He retains about £10 million pounds worth so has not exactly baled out. I conclude that his sale is not a signal for me to do likewise. But I will keep an eye on it.
tournesol: Some years ago I was following Beazley with a view to buying when the time was right. I noticed that A Horton - the CEO - bought some shares in the open market for a price somewhere round 92-93p (from memory). I decided to follow in his slipstream and bought next day for about 89p. I was delighted that I paid less than he did. A matter of a few months later I sold at 120p for a very handsome profit in a very short time. I thought I'd done well. fast forward a few years and the shares are 500-600p. A cursory glance at the chart shows that the share price is on a steady upwards multi-year trajectory. I re-entered last year and topped up more recently. This time I'm holding for the long term not ducking out with a quick short term profit.
tournesol: It's obvious what's going on. Read the results. Look at the share price. Join the dots. FWIW I think there is a massive over-reaction to a forecast short term profit reduction. I have recently trebled my holding.
schofip: Don't know what is going on here. The share price is like a brides nighty.
schofip: You are all a little quiet in here your share drops nearly £1 from its recent high and 3% in a day and not even a comment.
schofip: I am looking to buy in. Can anyone telll me why the price keeps going down. The last company update was bullish so I don't understand the continued down trend.
