The price comparison site 'Beyond' examined the funeral landscape and found the following: • CMA studied funeral sector through second half of 2018 and found such a concerning landscape that it is now conducting a full market investigation • Central to its initial findings was the impact of major chains on the disproportionately spiralling costs in the sector • Dignity was explicitly noted in the interim report as “well above international benchmarks” while it was also reported that “the Most expensive crematoria in the UK are run by private providers, in particular Dignity” • The report concluded that “Dignity’;s pricing policies have acted as the engine of these price rises, with others in the market appearing to follow its lead” • Dignity operates 19 of the 20 most expensive crematoria in the country • The average price of a funeral is now £4,271 • Funeral prices have risen by 33% since 2016 Average package available on Beyond is £2,807. Beyond has calculated that the funeral sector – which is a £2 billion a year industry – is overvalued by 35% or £650 million • Beyond calculated last year that there is a significant ‘chain premium’ between funeral directors. On average, an independent funeral director’s fees were £2,287 while a chain funeral director charged on average £3,771 – 65% more. Dignity is the most expensive of the UK’s major chains • Despite stating that it will do so on several occasions in the last few years, Dignity has still not published its prices online to allow customers to compare value – the lack of transparency in the funeral sector was a key pillar of the CMA’s findings and reasoning for launching its full investigation

This is the full fat investigation, with conclusions en all. It's mandated to report by end of May. The phase one report suggested several possible future outcomes, one being to set up an industry regulator. They were conscious in the phase one of not over-burdening the industry or government with costs, while admitting something needed to be done as they weren't confident of self-regulation. * I looked at the timeline of the doorstep lending investigation and overlaid it on the Provident share price - barely a blink. That industries later issues were either self-inflicted or illegal, though you could say the regulator was onto them by that point so any unethical practices were pounced on.

They've completed the market study and are now deliberating on a Market Investigation. No idea how long that would take but seems a protracted exercise that should end up with a remit to publicly publish all prices and add on's.

Hussyo - what do you think the timeline will be for the CMA findings ?

It's going to be a mega few weeks for DTY... First the results, where we know 2018 will be 79 m with 93 eps, which alone justifies a much higher sp, but of course it's all about guidance for 2019. Secondly, the CMA deadline approaches... No doubt the spike in volume today was traders positioning themselves for a high vol period.

Government Petition to Ban shorting of London AIM stocks. The AIM stock market is where smaller companies list their shares rather than using the prohibitively expensive main London Stock Market. This is an important market for the growth of smaller UK companies. In challenging times, shorters seek to borrow the company's shares from a holder for a consideration and to buy them at a later date. They immediately sell these shares which, due to the relative illiquid market, sends the price much lower and hence the shorters can buy them at that lower price - pocketing the difference. The only beneficiaries are the shorters and the market makers with the losers being the reputable company and it's bona fide investors. hTTps://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/242399

There's no volume for a breakout and won't be until the CMA is out of the way.

I was, sold 30% before the news then 20% at 1100 on the bounce but still hurting. Had too many profit warnings recently.

Yes, will happen. I've read dozens of company reports in the last month and I have yet to see a better investment proposition at these levels.
