Yep, lots of talk about opportunities and changing the way they value acquisitions. Plenty to be concerned about, but only time will tell if it's a tweak (which could be a good thing) or something more worrying.

That final "what you should expect from Chesnara" at the end of the interview would have only been answered one way in the past "more of the same".... in this interview it was answered with the word "activity"... sums it up.

Should add I'm not throwing my toys out of the pram and not considering selling at the moment.

I agree, wonder if he was considered for the role? The image Murray portrayed implies they were looking for something a little more flash

Some changes to strategy in there, sounds more aggressive to me... don't think they said "boring" once.

Not sure I liked the idea of "strategic acquisitions", loved the description of a natural hedge between company value and surplus.

Definitely felt more assured by David Rimmington than by our new CEO, Steve Murray.

Bought some more just in case it wakes up and rises like the other insurers.

Forward-looking yield is still almost 8.1%.

On the plus side you can therefore still pick it up yielding 8%!

Williamcooper,

Value traps certainly have one way beta, the problem is telling the difference and how you classify something as a value type investment.

A value play being overvalued is a strange description of a value play ;-)

The problem with value is that it's often one way beta - in that it doesn't raise so much in a bull market but it takes the full fall or more in a bear market Value with a yield often gets overvalued too - eg GSK

I bailed on CSN for LGEN/PHNX as could see better growth potential in those two - though long thought CSN the more likely take private target - but clearly that's not happens

Yep - it's a higher total return - not an 11 income return

Riverman you are correct, I should have been a bit clearer in my original post. I echo Lord Gnome's response, value has suffered a lost decade whilst growth stocks have raced ahead of fundamentals. Egg, in answer to your question regarding reasons to get back in I can offer a few (1) persistently higher inflation could prompt central banks to raise interest rates which would be good for companies like Chesnara - see chart on page 43 of 2020 annual report for figures (2) rising inflation has generally been easier on value rather than growth stocks, this is because growth stocks have payoffs well into the future which need to be discounted at a higher rate in order to take into account increased inflation. Companies like Chesnara make their payoffs in the short-term (8% per year @ current SP) and therefore don't need to be discounted as heavily, since you can spend the cash each year before it gets devalued by inflation (3) the new CEO might have some ideas to unlock value or even attract a bid, who knows (4) you are being paid 8% to wait whilst being pretty confident of 2-3% increases each year, a couple of years ago you'd only be able to get a yield of 5% or so (5) if it all goes pop thanks to J Pow and his merry friends then the div yield and book value on offer here should cushion the fall somewhat. Rivian or Tesla... not so much ;-) ATB

Yep, Lord Gnome has nailed it. Falling interest rates from a low base has pushed everyone in to growth stocks as that's where the returns are.

Meanwhile Chesnaras management wear "Boring" as a badge of honour (listen to an interview or two... not a boring interview, they say they aim to be a boring income stock).

I like some boredom in my portfolio, so these suit me and they've been range bound for what seems like an eternity so easy to trade a little for some capital gains... buy below £2.80, sell in to the pre-dividend rise which is normally something over £3.

Their acquisitions are generally good and I don't think the share price reflects the quality of the business... I kind of hope it stays that way because this is a core holding for me and I'd hate to have such an easy to hold income stock ruined ;-)

Please don't get me wrong here.

I'm not saying anything on hindsight. I just want to know anyone's explanation why the share price has dropped over the last few years. As such I might get an idea if it is now time for a turnaround in fortunes and with a handsome divi, maybe the time to get in.

I could say 'get back in' because I was in CSN some years ago but sold - why? I can't remember - but it was most probably to put the funds into another share that was falling faster!!! LOL!
