1000p may become the new support level(it has been the resistance level since 23/01). Fundamentally I can not see this remaining at this level for long but it has increased 50% since the low in early Feb so I can see a lot of PI's selling. Once cleared we may get a re-rate leading up to 14/05

We will see, I think it is overpriced in my view, I will be the first to admit I'm wrong if I am?

I think you’re brave to short dignity at this price. Ok at £25, but not at £10. Salty

If you take the view that the ebit margin has slipped by 2% points or so, as a result of the shift to a 15% simple funerals share of the mix, and that this proves to be representative of the full year, then it isn't the end of the world.

Rubbish? From the RNS :.....had shown a step change in the number of simple funerals as a percentage of all funerals conducted by the Group but that this was at a run rate of approximately 15 per cent (lower than the 20 per cent originally anticipated by the Board). Additionally, the absolute number of deaths in the first seven weeks of 2018 were approximately seven per cent higher than the prior year. So the company was faced with potentially a seven percent increase in customers in the quarter - and you don't think this had a major bearing on income? Really ??Granted the Board underestimated the numbers of customers opting for the simple funerals by some five percent but if you strip out the increased death level do you think the company would be so positive in this update?

I am surprised (and down on my spread) that this did not hang on to its morning strength. Up 20% at one point now back to 11%. I wonder if we'll drop back down into the sub 1000p trading range? Bloody hope not!

If rubbish relates to my comment above, I think you may have misinterpreted me. I’m saying the market is dramatically under-valuing Dignity. I’m referring to the re-rating of the share price from £25 a share to less than ten. Salty.

Rubbish. They are saying the the expected take up of budget funerals has failed to materialise to the extent they expected and there for they are still selling the higher margin funerals, added to the increased deaths we have an EBIT of 32m for Q1. Stonking result, let's hope it continues through to HY.

Mip55 I’m four grand up this morning on six week old investment in dignity so I couldn’t really give a stuff. My view is the market’s overreacted to the yield erosion and is fundamentally mis-pricing the business. Too many have discounted the management’s ability to manage cost and innovate. Salty

I think you're confusing the Q1 results which are significantly better than what the BOARD were anticipating with the total 2018 expectations which are ahead of what the MARKET were expecting from the company.In essence the board is saying we've made a good start to the year - largely due to, it seems, the increased death rate and therefore we will do better over the year than the market might have anticipated but certainly not WELL ahead.

Mip55 - semantics. Significantly ahead or well ahead. We get to the same place. Salty.

"Significantly" ahead, if lacking confidence it is indicative of 2018 overall: Dignity's Q1 revenue was approximately £95 million compared to £93 million in the prior year and EBIT was approximately £37.5 million in line with the prior year, but significantly ahead of the Board's expectations. Despite this positive start to the year, the Board still believes it is too early to conclude that the trading experienced in Q1 is indicative of the likely funeral price / volume mix going forward and the Group continues to conduct a significant number of price and service trials across its entire portfolio. The data from these trials is still at a very early stage and it is not yet possible to draw any meaningful conclusions. The Board continues to believe that trading during 2018 will be volatile but based on the first quarter results believe that results for the full year will be ahead of current market expectations. In August 2018 the Board will be able to update the market as to results of these trials and the operational review being undertaken in conjunction with L.E.K. Consulting. The Board expects to announce the full first quarter results on 14 May 2018.

The version of the RNS I read appears to be missing the word WELL, where did yours come from ? Good news certainly but let's keep it factual.

Great RNS this morning. Trading in Q1 2018 expected to be well ahead of market expectations.

It’s not in debt if you take the company’s substantial actual assets into account in its balance sheet.
