I missed the 643 dip this week but I'll be buying back in at the earliest.

I've extrapolated from DTY H1 2018 and re-jigged according to the issues picked out by the CMA, so in a sense it's a worst case scenario where regulation brings revenues right in. It's also back of an envelope stuff until I find more time! *Working on 610k deaths in 2019, and on a market share of 12.1 and 11%, funeral to crematoria, respectively. *Using the average funeral costs from H1 2018 of £3023 and reducing by difference between inflationary rise and actual of essential costs over the past 10 years - incidentally, this number is not far off the suggested potential discount of £1000 the CMA say can be achieved by consumers shopping around. *Using the same calculation for crematoria, where the difference is wider. *For now I'm ignoring pre-paid as it's dying (excuse the pun) and any add-on revenue, which is relatively small. FY 2019 EPS would be 82p. A 10 PE implies £8.20 share price A 15 PE £12.30.

Please do hussyo. The Phoenix Fund, who I know and rate highly, were continuing to buy on this price fall. Do look at the balance sheet in conjunction with the earnings please.

Hopeful... I used to hold these until about 2 months ago, and though fully out I've kept a close eye on the company... I'm going to do some math based on assumptions taken from the regulator's report and put something up here.

Hindsight is great.. so I'm wondering if I will regret not buying at these prices having an average of just over 13 quid.... painful indeed and a lesson learned

Let’s face it how often are the civil servants (CMA)ahead of the curve? Still playing the blame game suits the current political climate. DTY being caste as some evil profiteer is nevertheless a major head wind for sentiment and I think it kills an ability to get an above market rating. In any event is growing earnings even feasible given the new pricing environment?

Selling off again, always good to employ 3 day rule with stocks. Will probably sell off a bit on monday as well, before moving up.

yes, seems to me that DTY is ahead of this storm. if they already have a 'budget' offering, what more can the CMA realistically do?

Big boys going to come out of this better than the tiddlers, lower margin per funeral, but more market share = more funerals.

I suspect the regulator will cap costs for businesses like dignity, could very well hurt the top and bottom line. Though the business looks cheap trading at 7 times earnings, it may get cheaper still.

The fact that people currently are and have been would suggest otherwise, this isn't a new business...

The problem lies in the customers of the business itself, a lot of people do not have £5000 to pay for a funeral. Sure the business may be steady and have an ample supply of dead people to deal with, but the fact people aren't willing to pay is the problem.

From the CMA report which states in no uncertain terms that the bereaved have been ripped off for years: "The 20 most expensive crematoria are private ones and Dignity operates 19 of them. We have seen evidence that meeting shareholder expectations has been the main factor underlying these large annual price rises."

Good opportunity to buy if horizon is 10 years plus, baby boomers are the only revenue growth, other than w-a-r and famine which is looking unlikely right now.

Cash position is weak as well, only £40 million. Short term there are a lot of risks, long term looks ok if debt is reduced and business picks up. Baby boomers will be dying soon, so there is hope there.

Current assets at £94 million does not look good, they were £170 million a few years back. Justified drop in share price, will probably trade up to £10 and then hit resistance. One for the brave, not for widows or orphans.

J-oke-s aside, the balance sheet shows hardly any equity in the business. Revenues are flat. The company trades at 7 times earnings, the company is fairly priced if you ask me. Company has one foot in the grave.

£561M Financial Liabilities: £204M notes expire 2035 / £356M notes expire 2049. "The Group's primary financial covenant in respect of the Secured Notes requires EBITDA to total debt service ('EBITDA DSCR') to be at least 1.5 times. At 29 June 2018, the actual ratio was 3.09 times (June 2017: 3.41 times; December 2017: 3.24 times)." Don't think there is a lot to worry about there. This is not a standard business to model. Regulation will benefit the bigger players, always does.

Two (almost) certain trends we can expect:- 1. Pricing will become more transparent 2. More people will elect for simple, efficient service without expensive trappings. But I don't foresee a major trend towards DIY funerals, white vans, and cardboard boxes. Therefore a big provider, like Dignity, has an opportunity to focus on efficiency which smaller operators may not be able to match. But oh dear, that balance sheet. 757.0 Total assets -231.5 Goodwill (mainly private FDs bought at what will now look like silly prices) -157.3 Intangible assets 368.2 "Real" assets -551.8 Financial liabilities

So .... market expected the report, the report said what the market expected, and DTY (as the largest provider) is best placed to deliver the regulatory, quality and cost requirements to the market. Isn't this just going to drive the smaller operators out? (or to struggle under the regulatory and quality burden anyway). Looks like buying opp to me
