Steady careful, you're at risk of sounding like a sour remoaner who thinks anybody who voted leave comes from the backwoods. You have your view and I totally respect that but insinuating that a majority of Leavers didn't understand the risks are both wrong and patronising. Most were actually well aware of the risks following the barrage of lies and scare tactics used by the Remain side yet still decided to vote out. There will unquestionably be some job losses and movements initially but surely it's clear to you now that with or without a deal, the U.K. will prosper greatly untied to a failing over beaurocratic, unelected, anti enterprise group with a falling share of world trade. We can do deals with growing nations whilst the EU falls in on itself, which it will.

One thing good on CNA. What a lot of you chaps say are very interesting and it is nice to see your comments. You all seem a sensible bunch so a pat on the back. On some other the shares I look at the comments, and they are really stupid and not helpful in any way. CNA looks a steal at these price, I said before I cant understand why this is not snapped up at these prices, I think it's because of the price cap and it's the uncertainty. I have been lucky lately making a touch under £22 k in about 1 year and 9 mths. But the shares I own at the moment if I sold them would leave little if I was stupid enough to sell. So for me its just sit back and wait for each one to go back up, a bit boring but I don't intend to loose a fortune. Luckily each one as a good dividend, :)

A GDP of about £2,000bn. The worlds fifth largest economy. We had it made, with our own currency and central bank. We were crazy to risk it.

I think with regulation things never turn out to be as bad as feared. I don't think the govt has a clue how the price cap would work. As with the FOBT regulations we will probably get some weak legislation that avoids any proper damage. Must admit I have had a mixed year. I recently bought in here and am only 2-3% down - also bought BT around 280 which hasn't been great and have seen my GSK shares drop from 1700-1300 which has been the most painful. Also have 20% in Woodford which has underperformed the market but my largest two holdings (Marlborough smaller cos and microcap) have done very well. I'm thinking next year will be hard as the reality that Europeans will turn their back on us will dawn and we will lose a lot of highly paid jobs to the continent without any replacements. I hope I am wrong, but I can't see Trumps policy of "america first" and our desperation to get any deal signed as a great mix. Its certainly going to hit my business as we export a lot to the EU and any tariffs will cost us.

I agree Tim, CNA might not be shorted (yet), but many of the list I wrote are. The hedge funds are always looking for weakness and hesitancy amongst buyers. Let's hope the trading statement doesn't give them an opportunity.

Good post andy. I am in a similar boat have never known so many companys I consider to be basically sound so heavily beat up particularly at a time when the ftse is so high. Was reading an article Woodford wrote a month or so ago and in which he basically said the way he has invested and valued companys which has proved highly successful for decades has not changed despite the fact that many of his holdings have recently underperformed and few of them have taken part in the market rally of the last couple of years. I still think the key to long term survival in this game is buying value and having a diversified portfolio.

FFS.... Who said this was cheap at 175p? Blimey 163p. I bought way to early. Chart is beginning to look really ugly. Could it hit 125p? Hope not but 150p looks very likely imo. Considering to cut and run :o( Mind you where can I get the income return this pays? Maybe I should stay after all.

It seems to be a buyers strike. I have a large holding here, second only to BT. (yes I too am having a poor year). Many of my other holdings are doing badly al But why so little buying at these levels? Worrying.

andyj, the drop in share price is not down to shorting as there are no disclosed shorts for CNA. Question is who is selling? No major holder's have declared so is it just pi's selling?

I only have Lloyds which is slightly up in my portfolio. GSK, BARC, BT, MKS are all down for me. I have about 40% in CNA , in hindsight far to big a percentage in one company and when I eventually get my money back will never have such a high % in one company again . Let's hope for some good news from CNA and get the share price back up where it belongs :) Good weekend all

The country will do far better outside the restrictive covenants of EU membership. To me remainers seem like they need an adult dummy to suck. The UK traded with the rest of the world for centuries without problem. A willing buyer and a willing seller meet.Its not rocket science and if the EU fail to meet the price target of products of an equal quality sourced elsewhere then we can decline the EU offer of supply and buy from the alternative. Why is is it made out to be so difficult by the media. Its ridiculous. imho Put Dyson in charge of the negotiations... https://www.express.co.uk/news/politics/881043/brexit-news-eu-uk-james-dyson-europe-disaster-no-deal-talks

FWIW here is my take on the situation. During 20 years of investing, steadily building my pension, surviving two bear markets, the past 6 months have seen the worst performance of my portfolio. The old blue chips, the go to of retail investors for income, have collapsed. The household names M & S, Sainsburys, Debenhams, Glaxo, NG, United Utilities, Land securities, BT, Marstons, Imperial, Capita, Dixons, Stagecoach, Royal Mail etc etc including Centrica are at multi year lows. Without the rise of the oil majors (5 FTSE points for 1% each) and Vodafone, the market would be considerably lower.We know many of the companies above are being targeted by shorters. Perhaps they know something we don't, but I doubt it. Rather they are profiting from worries created by the political climate and consumer slowdown. Many private investors will be in a similar position. Funds will be too, but their prices haven't fallen...yetThe strategy of buy and hold might be dead for middle ranking companies, but the companies above aren't going away. So what do we make of it? Sell out and move on to....where? Or hold and hope the climate eases? Or buy into the fears and wait.FWIW I am selling out of the mid ranking companies and putting more into the former blue chips, like CNA. They may well fall lower, but their time will come and who knows which of the middle ranking companies will go the way of Carillion? Let them short, I will buy more and wait and when they reverse and downtrends become uptrends and they look to buy to close their shorts, they won't be getting my shares.

Sorry careful, I would rather see CNA go under than have Corbyn and Abbot being in charge. Those two damn fools would make us the laughing stock of the world.

I think if they tried to have a second referendum there would be riots all over the country like we have never seen before in the UK. I have always thought we should just walk away and not pay them a penny, instead all the billions we gave them to buy properties etc we should get some of that back. I now see they recon that 74% of the county say we should just walk away from them, a lot of the remainders have changed there minds now they can see what they are like

The situation is loaded with irony. If we stay in the EU Centrica could not be nationalised. It is against EU law. Corbyn has admitted this.

It shows what a mess we are in. I take the opposite view. The head of Goldman suggested we should have a repeat referendum, a confirmation vote, now that we all have better idea about what it now means. I agree with that. the irony of all this is that those that profess to worship democracy fear a second vote and wold deny a second vote. I think that Corbyn could romp home by promising to reverse Brexit, or not even complete it, if there was an early election.

We know about the threat of a price cap. but we have to assume that it will be reasonably fair. Are there any serious estimates of turnover, profit, dividends, cash flow going forward? Apart from Corbyn's Nationalisation plans,I have not read anything that supports this share price collapse. ....together with the slope of the share price curve created by shorting and algo trading. It looks as though our German friends will get their 160p, but if the company is sound, it must be the buying opportunity of the year. Would May's government be so inept as to punish CNA for political gain? If the answer is yes then they do not understand efficient free market capitalism. This is turning out to be be a nightmare government. It will end in Corbyn at this rate.

I was not going to put the app on again till Thursday but I see the price accidentally on the web. what a bad day yet again chaps !! I'm sorry to say this but the share price on this company is like money going down the drain. Yet again record lows and the speed it's dropping is quickening -4.9p on the week. Unless management come up with something positive I can seriously see this company going down to the £1.50s then £1.40s !!! I said before this it is the worse loss of any company in the Ft100 in the last 5 years, I'm at serious losses here chaps. Wish I could be positive about something but we have to face it, unless you are a long term investor and could not care about selling for years or somebody who only have a few shares and only a small loss,you might as well forget about this company for a long while, if it keeps dropping much further I can also see the dividend being hit badly as well. Try to have a good weekend whatever your doing and try to forget about it, it will only eat you up :(
