speedsgh: Nice to see a bit of positivity returning to the share price prior to results a week on Friday (29 Mar). Now back above 200 SMA.

jonwig: The share price here has often shown mystifying behaviour, so the question is how to value the company. Insurance accounting is still pretty opaque for me, but maybe a key number is "solvency ratio". Solvency ratio was 157% at 30/06, meaning (roughly) that it would fall to the critical 100% if supporting assets fell by 36%. Since these will be bonds rather more than equities, that's pretty unlikely. (Isn't it?) The SR has varied between 143% and 148% since end-2015. At 30/06/15 it was 271%, but that predates Solvency 2 so isn't really comparable. Another factor is FX gains/losses. Actually I don't think these matter, as SKR, say, is kept to service the Swedish arm, and changes only when account are drawn up in GBP. It's worth saying that CSN uses external fund managers (Schroders, I think), as does PHNX (SLA). They used to quote an embedded value, but that's stopped, and they now quote "Economic value" - EV per share at 30/06/18 was 467p, though this isn't a recognised measure. The company has net cash (ie. debt is irrelevant). So when FY results to 31/12 are published in March I'd be surprised if the SR fell by more that 10% (ie. to 141%), and I'd be comfortable with that.

propertyman: In view of the general uncertainty in shares, current for the time being, the results look rather appealing. The share price hasn't moved much over the past few months and that shows the business is fairly stable. I know I am investing for income and remain fairly happy about today's statement.

speedsgh: 3% increase in interim dividend offset by 3% fall in EcV means that the share price will probably at best trade sideways for the foreseeable future excepting the emergence of any unscheduled acquisition news. That is of course applying logic to the situation which in the case of the stock market is often a pointless exercise!

jonwig: Quiet lately, but we're one of IC's tips of the week. Conclusion: At 146 per cent, the group’s Solvency II ratio – of funds held over the regulatory minimum – is below that of its closest peer, Phoenix (PHNX). However, it is comfortable enough to allow the group to continue making acquisitions. Analysts at Panmure Gordon are forecasting an economic value – which includes future profit expectations from long-term policies – of 496p a share at December 2018. That followed a 3 per cent upgrade to forecasts after a strong 2017 performance. That leaves the shares trading at 0.8 times forecast economic value. Given management’s solid track record of raising the dividend – with Panmure Gordon forecasting a dividend of 20.7p a share this year, equivalent to a 5.4 per cent yield at the current share price – we think this discount is unwarranted. Buy. Last IC View: Buy, 384.5p, 4 Apr 2018

solarno lopez: Any known reason for the steady decline in the share price ?

chairman20: Look at the discount in the share price as a significant buffer in case of any substantial investment markets decline. Nothing in the stock market is ever safe but CSN is an investment that allows me to sleep easy! And I like the management style - not doing anything incautious.

speedsgh: PHNX share price is still holding steady so this fall is currently looking specific to CSN. Maybe news leaking re Countrywide Assured investigation but they did state in the interims that they did not expect the outcome of the investigation to have a material impact... "The investigation into how Countrywide Assured disclosed exit fees to customers, initially announced on 3 March 2016, is ongoing. We have provided the FCA with all information requested. Discussions are ongoing and given the narrow scope of the investigation we retain our opinion that the outcome from the investigation should not have a material impact on the company."

speedsgh: CSN directors rarely buy in the open market but previous buys by the former CEO (Graham Kettleborough), though not very large, were pretty good indicators of when he thought the share price was oversold. Remains to be seen if the current CEO (John Deane) is as astute with his timing as his predecessor, if indeed he ever gets round to buying any shares!
