Funeral director group Dignity is one to "avoid" said the Sunday Times' Inside the City column. Rising competition from rivals is the main concern for shareholders, even more than comments that death rates were levelling off. As well as an ongoing bolt-on acquisition campaign, Dignity has been growing the top line every year since it floated 13 years ago thanks to the industry's ability to keep increasing prices, which has led to the average cost of a funeral topping £4,000 these days. Dignity's sales are forecast to reach around £326m this year, from £313.6m last year and £305.3m the year before. The FSTE 250 group's recent caution about competition it undoubtedly linked to the rise of price comparison websites such as Funeralbooker, which has even boasted that it is shorting Dignity's shares. Analysts warn that Dignity’s method of acquiring dozens of smaller funeral homes has not given it the significant gains in market share it might have expected as vendors often set up again as a new, cheaper rival. Management have two choices: keep focusing on the top end of the market or chase cheaper business.

Sell out of Dignity - HTTPS://www.investorschronicle.co.uk/tips-ideas/2017/11/21/sell-out-with-dignity/ IC VIEW The share price fell following the recent third-quarter update and, unless Dignity can clearly maintain its market position, we think there could be further pain ahead. True, the shares have already de-rated and look attractive compared with historic levels. However, the forward PE ratio of 14 leaves room for the shares to de-rate further, especially if forecasts are downgraded, which we think is looking increasingly likely. And while we don't see any immediate reason for concern about debt levels, the fact Dignity's balance sheet has a likeness to that of a reliable utility could prove a headache if its earnings succumb further to the kind of competitive pressures we're more used to seeing in the grocery sector. While the company adapts to changes in its end markets, we think investors are best off out of it. Sell.

Guess after such a good run with company seeing increased competition, it's the fear of a profit warning.

Is DTY an AIM BPR/IHT avoidance stock? If so there may be nervousness ahead of tomorrow's Budget?Also......Arranged a funeral with DTY last month; absolutely faultless and thoughtful too.

Seems a strange adjustment. Was it ahead of itself? I guess a P/E of 16 sounds about right based on just a 1% increase in deaths. Need a few more to pop their clogs!!!

I have kept in touch with this thread after we published our report in September - hxxps://funeralbooker.com/blog/dignity-report/ I am not saying the drop is down to the publication of our report but I do believe our thesis is supported by management's guidance on "significant competition". I believe our report was discussed on the update call as well but I have not seen a transcript yet.

Took some more at £20. No sure I can see a reason for such a drop.

Iamnotanumber why don't you just admit you are not invested here or in any other stock fella? Waltermitty comes to mind! For a start you don't have the intelligence to have money to make any investments!
