Substance to above from DTY: "The Group has continued to develop its low-cost Simplicity proposition. In October 2018, Dignity's Simplicity brand launched a unique new low-cost attended funeral service, providing people with all the practical and essential elements of a cremation, without the obligation to pay for traditional ceremonial elements they might not want. This is the first service of its type available across the UK and, unlike other low-cost options, gives people the freedom to choose when the funeral takes place rather than having to accept a time slot allocated by the service provider. Dignity's Simplicity service is the lowest price, nationally available, attended funeral service."

https://www.investegate.co.uk/competition-and-mkts/rns/cma-proposes-major-funerals-probe/201811290700038283I/ That and Peel Hunt issued a SELL at 800p. They must be looking at the short term until publication of the next probe. Extract looks for the "larger chains in particular" comment. Not sure how they are going to change history, they could regulate standards but they should not be able to cap charges. I think we'll tread water at a new base until publication or regulation change but that's 6m - 9m away. Today, people generally spend between £3,000 and £5,000 organising a funeral, and the price of the essential elements has increased by more than two-thirds in the last 10 years, almost three times the rate of inflation. Organising a funeral would now cost those on the lowest incomes nearly 40% of their annual outgoings, more than they spend on food, clothing and energy combined. · Customers could save over £1,000 by looking at a range of choices in their local area. However, people organising a funeral are usually distressed and often not in a position to do this - making it easier for some funeral directors to charge higher prices. Prices are also often not available online, making it difficult to compare options. · While some smaller funeral directors have sought to keep their prices low, other providers - the larger chains in particular - have implemented policies of consistently high year-on-year price increases. A number of these have now introduced lower cost funeral options, but this doesn't go far enough to make up for years of above inflation price hikes. The CMA's evidence also indicates most people who organise a funeral remain extremely vulnerable to exploitation and future rises in charges. · Cremations account for 77% of funerals, yet there are limited choices for most people in their local area and fees charged by crematoria have increased by 84% on average in the past 10 years, more than three times the rate of inflation

To be honest this will be seen as a buying opportunity. This is a company that has seen its share price stripped back quite drastically over the last few months and the news today is mostly a retrospective view of the industry. Dignity have adjusted price down accordingly. They have shown strong signals that they are listening and adapting If a company is forever beholden to past pricing which at the time was accepted practice how does it ever move on? Do you penalise them on a continued basis or try to make amends by pricing funerals that is both sympathetic to their customers and result in a successful and profitable company. That is an incredibly hard juggling act but one that can drive a company ethos Dignity is not a charity but to live up to its own name must make efforts to close the gap, and to a large degree I think they have done this. The news today is putting in black and white what most already knew and in fact what Dignity are already trying to address going forward. This will be 4 figures again very very soon. It is a business that will defy market turbulence and become a strong defensive stock again. Strong buy.

The report is a stinker where the share price is concerned.

The fact that there will be further studies into best practice in the industry suggests further black clouds on the horizon or without the metaphor pricing pressure.

Interesting to see that Phoenix Asset Manahgement has increased their holding over the last several weeks by over 52% - they now own 9.358% of DTY. No short positions either. Feels positivelets hope the share price reflects the confidence.

Hussyo,My point was regarding that the Co-Op also reducing prices was surely always on the cards.

Hussyo - Selecting Shares that Perform (Richard Koch and Leo Gough) ... it's not about the price you paid it's all about the current price. I started buying in Sept 16 at around $6.50 then again during the drop in Dec 16 $3.50 and been in / out ever since. Core holding and trade around 30% when the opportunity presents itself. Yourself ? Apologies to others for the off topic.

hat - am I allowed to ask what price? squid.. if DTY decides that to keep market share they also need to reduce prices of their Simple plans, which will account for about 20% of sales, then it will impact the bottom line. More than anything, it's the uncertainty, because DTY is highly cash-generative.
