It also talked about 'transparency' and potentially making the average cost of funerals '£1000 cheaper.' I've argued in a previous post that, should that be the case, we'll see DTY back at a tenner.

Dignity's time is up! The CMA in their report today state 'We are not persuaded by the argument we heard from one of them that its higher prices were justified by better quality of service.' Also, 'The profit margins achieved by the largest suppliers in the industry have been high by international standards, with Dignity’s in particular having been well above those of equivalent businesses operating in some other major countries. Although Dignity’s profit margin fell in the course of 2018, it was still higher than international benchmarks and was expected by the company to recover in the foreseeable future. Together with the large suppliers’ pricing policies, these profit margins are symptomatic of a market that is not working well for consumers. Although the large funeral directors’ prices are, on average, well above those of the independent funeral directors, it is clear that others in the sector have also implemented some large price rises. But we have also heard from smaller, local funeral directors who have sought to keep their prices low.' 'The large operators of private crematoria have similarly implemented average price rises, which have consistently been between 6 and 8% every year for the past 8 years (and higher in the previous years). The prices charged by the three largest private operators are above the national average, 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 for at least one supplier and, based on the evidence we have obtained so far, we do not believe that industry cost pressures (including regulations relating to emissions) can fully explain such levels of price inflation.'

I bailed from Fres today, banking 4%, and have gone in here in a big way. That the CMA would escalate was the best kept secret in the industry. I've got an average of 6.86 and see upside short term.

hussyo - I doubt there will be a significant rise here anytime soon. You may be right over a 24 mth period but at what opportunity cost ? There are many more companies that have better short to medium term prospects. Watch and wait, they'll be no significant investors until the CMA outcome is clear

Is this not good news for DTY, others probably won’t fair so well imho

I research companies every day and every time I like one, what invariably happens is I think, but this isn't as attractive as DTY. I'm currently heavily committed to Fresnillo as I'm convinced US stocks will go belly up in April; once I'm done there, I'll be going to the hilt here.

Forget for a moment about the share price .. what's your judgement from the available data? That is all that counts, whether you make a killing or lose your shirt.

I have read the report from CMA. Last weeks results didnt have the desired effect I was hoping for.

If you've done your homework and have conviction then it's easy. If you're in on a whim and things go against you, then it can get painful. I've been guilty of the latter too many times to mention.

I've got a big holding at an average at 7.31... my advice is to read the November CMA + the most recent DTY results and decide where the future lies...

Hi Hat... sorry couldn't get back to you sooner. NXT has always bothered me in a way MKS hasn't, which may seem odd, though since 2016 they've performed badly on a relative basis. At the current levels, I see a lot more upside in Marks, and I think they've finally got the management team to deliver. The brokers, as brokers tend to be, are all over the place on Marks:) 220 - 350! The issue I have with my portfolio at the mo is a lack of hedging when US stocks roll over. It was Fresnillo for 6 months or, but when they hit £10 a few weeks back, it was too good an opportunity not to dump. They're back down to a bit over 8 now, so I'll be back in later this week. Buyback blackout starts this week and gradually gets to about 92% in mid April. I'm pretty sure US stocks will suffer in April. Let us see..

Have you reviewed NXT ? MKS have lots of property but I expect it to be written down quite quickly (High Street Pubs doing the same). High Street Property is no where near as valuable as is was. They also have 1.7BN debt. 8% short interest which has improved from 12% https://shorttracker.co.uk/company/GB0031274896/ No advice intended just my own red flags. Hope it works out for you.

I did some math on Marks and I fancy them to hit 325. They're about the only big retailer I like as they own tons of freehold. Plus I love the fact Archie is there. Keep an eye on SAR. Something big could happen in May.

MKS ? That's a strange one. Not for me. Retail, long term downtrend, closing stores, focusing on food. I am really concerned about the future of MKS. Airlines might be the recovery sector one the next couple of months if Brexit is sorted

No no, none whatsoever. I'd bought Lloyds and Marks a couple of weeks ago in anticipation of something like this happening. (Voted down).

No certainty of that, it is certain that DTY will not go up in a straight line so always a chance to get back on. Brexit has no impact on DTY

Hussyo, I saw that but the growth that has concerned me and I don't see a driver for the share price recovery. CMA Investigation could take up to 2 years. I don't think there will be a significant recovery until that is concluded. ... unless they don't have an investigation My position was a recovery position which I now do not see (short team). I watch with interest, any change in fundamentals and I will review. FWIW - Moved some into GAW and SPE for Growth and Recovery

Hat, even yesterday volume was naff, though I see Phoenix have increased yet again to over 20%. I've got a spreadsheet of all institutional buys/sells over the 18 months and it's massively, like massively, net positive.
