They don't need to issue a statement, hussyo. They've already said what they need to. 13 November 2017 “Alongside the work being undertaken on the Group's digital strategy and our continued call for regulation of our markets, we are assessing other initiatives to help the Group build on its strong market position." 19 January 2018 “Dignity will also continue to lead calls for greater regulation of the funeral sector while continuing to set the standard for what constitutes best practice in the industry. As a leader within its industry the Group has continued to call for regulation. To this end in 2017 independent consumer group Fairer Finance, in partnership with the Group, published a report looking at whether the funeral planning market works well for the consumer. Dignity also firmly believes that the funeral industry will benefit from proper regulation to ensure that customers are not misled into accepting below-par service and standards. The Group continues to engage Government and other stakeholders in calling for higher standards.” 14 March 2018 “We have continued to call for regulation in the industry, commissioning and launching a ground-breaking report into the pre-paid market. We have further industry-leading initiatives in the pipeline. We believe the funeral industry will benefit significantly from proper regulation to ensure that clients are not misled into accepting below-par service and standards. We pride ourselves in providing industry-leading standards. It is a thread which has run through our business from the beginning and we are determined to maintain this focus while augmenting our products and improving our channels to market. Reaching our desired goals, operational and financial, will require our staying focused on excellent service and we are committed to ensuring that this is the case.” 14 May 2018 “In April 2018, the Group also published a White Paper calling for stronger regulation of the funeral plan sector to protect customers. The paper proposes the Funeral Planning Authority being given a statutory footing and the requirement for all funeral plan providers to participate. The Group is participating in and co-funding the development of a further piece of research conducted by Fairer Finance looking at how stronger regulation can be delivered in practice. Further details including a copy of the White Paper are available on the Group's investor website.” White Paper: hTTps://www.dignityfunerals.co.uk/corporate/investors/news/press-releases/2018-04-17/1200/dignity-publishes-white-paper-calling-for-stronger-regulation-of-the-funeral-plan-sector/

I saw a 10k and then a 20k buy go through, at 10.43 and 10.39 respectively... I'd suggest those traders will be well in the money by end of play today.

The markets have a habit of over-reacting to news. The company will have to issue a statement sharpish.

Nearly 15% down today. Might be a good time to add more and then once this news blows over then share price can rise. Or could just get out now. Decisions.

Well found. It's a disgrace that Google and FT appear asleep at the wheel.

DTY canvased for more regulation in the market but instead they get a price investigation. Reputable businesses should be OK and with the current review underway, I think this is a positive but will hit the SP http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-44327899 The high cost of funerals is to come under scrutiny, with two separate investigations being signalled. The Competition and Markets Authority says "emotionally vulnerable people" are not being given clear information about prices and services. Meanwhile, the Treasury is focusing on "rip-off" pre-paid funeral plans. Consumer groups have complained that people who pay for their funerals in advance could find their relatives face extra costs after they die.

Well that was pretty obvious.. market was manipulated down, squeezing out panicked longs, before 210k in buys comes through with zero slippage.

PIs are being flushed out as PIs do by the MMs on 2 consecutive days of net positive buying. I expect a trading day soon where the price moves very strongly upwards.

Since January, notifiable share transactions show a near +9 million net figure. This represents about 18% of the outstanding. Of 19 only 3 were on the sell side. As sellers have not been flushed out, I would suggest large stakeholders are using metrics that give a price target far in advance of where we are.

Hussyo - agree. I’m upgrading my price target from £15 to £17 on the basis of today’s statement. Salty

A broker re-rating is now inevitable and will give a further boost to the price. The simplest calculation to do is to base it on a PE of 15, which gives £17.4.

Yes, i’d not clocked the accrual release. Even so, still very impressive to see growth. I knew the results were going to be better than expected at the end of last year but to actually deliver growth is impressive.

The numbers that matter are 12% for the new Simple service (exp 20%), 55% for the Full service (exp 44%), market share 'showing incremental' signs of recovering - that was a point made in the annual report. Let's see what the market makes of it. Margins were also far ahead of expectations.

Op profits were underpinned by the release of a Directors bonus accrual in Q1, but still not a bad story. Caution in the message but this still looks like it has the potential for a decent year.

Profits in the first quarter are up yoy! That’s incredible. The April update was encouraging but I never dreamt that they’d deliver growth in absolute terms. What a turn-around. Salty.

The technicals are looking very good, but whether the trend continues or not will depend on the analyst call on Monday. The fact Montanaro (who specialise in small/mid caps) made a purchase of 390k shares recently probably says there won't be any nasty surprises.

ModeelThis is where charts and fundementals diverge. DTY have never had such "challenges" to their business model (real or perceived). The fundamentals now take precedence while the chart pattern re-establishes.

When the stock hit £12 last week the RSI had reached a point from where it has historically retreated. If the stock were to trade at the average PE of the GRs sector then the implied price is £17.37. It has historically traded above the average PE.

Well that was a bit weird - yesterday and today. Back to where we started! Does anyone have any idea of what was going on?

It will hit £15. No doubt about it. Just a question of how quickly it gets there. Salty

We're back in the gap, any tech traders out there to tell me if that means it will rise to top of said gap? As I remember it usually does. Correct me if I'm wrong??

I’d expect this to get back up to £15 a share. Didn’t expect it to get there quite so quickly but making great progress. Salty

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?
