hussyo: 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.
this_time_its_different: 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.
this_time_its_different: RIP share price (excuse the pun).
tiger60: 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.
countless: 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.
shard of glass: I've taken a position in Dignity on my portfolio this morning as I see it that it is they that have been campaigning for any enquiry and are happy to share what information they have already collated. Given this I think it has already fallen too far even before today and I also noted a recent Director buy at 1090p. In terms of news there is plenty out there. Office of National Statistics data on death rates is showing deaths for this quarter so far around 3% up on the same period last year and in the quieter summer part of the year as well. That also follows on from a good first quarter with the death rate some 7% higher. hTTp:// Additionally virtually every day you are seeing London in the news headlines for knife crime and with the death rate in London overtaking New York. The associated murder and the death rate in the capital seems at an all time high and these things all factor in and contribute. Just google search London and knife crime. If things continue as they are presently then on the 1st August there may be potential for a significant boost to the share price for on that date you should get the Interim / 6 monthly results to the 29th June reflecting this and also the result of the ongoing pricing review. all imvho, dyor etc
imastu pidgitaswell: Absolutely. Same comment as on the day of the announcement - they are cutting income on their main product by 25%, which will have a percentage larger impact on their net margin (costs remain the same). Even then they will still be more expensive than their competitors, they cannot say what the volumes going forward will be (still lower, at best by less than they would have been had they not cut prices) and they therefore have no guidance. The debt is well chronicled, and is long term. But when looking at the share price, you have to consider the enterprise value, which is the debt added to the market value - this gives the market valuation of the entire business. As the debt is such a large percentage of the enterprise value, fairly small changes in enterprise value (as assessed by the market) are caused by much larger swings in equity value (the share price). I was surprised it was trading as high as 1000p-ish on results day and the next day. Current levels better reflect the value of the equity, but given the utter uncertainty of the forecast, there may be more risk to price in.
eastbourne1982: This sector has become more and more competitive, like most things, prices will only go down over the next few years, Dignity will have to work twice as hard to stand still. The share price may bounce over the next few weeks however there are too many negatives here to justify the risk / rewards of buying these. I appreciate this is hindsight however perhaps the business should have had a rights issue when the share price was £25 to get rid of the debt, that is one of the big issues here and the bosses should have known business was going to get tougher quite a long time ago. Lower prices, lower profits and a big debt pile are a toxic mix.
waldron: Why Dignity plc is a turnaround stock I’d buy after today’s 50% share price crash Peter Stephens | Friday, 19th January, 2018 | More on: DTY JE Image source: Getty Images. The share price of funeral-related services specialist Dignity (LSE: DTY) dropped by as much as 50% on Friday after it released a profit warning. A more competitive market outlook means that the company will cut prices for various services, which is expected to cause a fall in profitability over the medium term. As a result, investor sentiment has deteriorated. However, the company could deliver a strong turnaround in the long run. A stable market, strong business model and low valuation could combine to make the stock a worthwhile purchase at the present time. A changing market In the last couple of years, Dignity has faced a more competitive marketplace. With inflation moving higher and now being ahead of wage growth, disposable incomes are falling in real terms. Therefore, it is unsurprising that consumers are seeking to cut costs in order to balance their income and expenditure each month. And while funeral costs are an exceptional item, they are not immune to increasingly price-conscious behaviour. Alongside increasing competition, the company has seen the average reduction in the number of funerals per location running at 6.8% between 2015 and 2017. This is almost twice the rate of 3.6% which was recorded between 2004 and 2014. In response, the company is lowering the cost of some of its services as it seeks to protect its market share. This is expected to lead to substantially lower profits in 2018. Recovery potential The level of profitability that is expected to be recorded in 2018 is unclear. As such, it seems as though investors are pricing-in a wide margin of safety. Dignity now trades on a price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of just 8 using its 2016 earnings figure. While its rating is very likely to rise due to the prospective fall in 2018 earnings, the reality is that the company continues to have a dominant position in the funeral services market. With it offering the scope for further growth in the long term, the stock could prove to be a sound, albeit volatile, turnaround opportunity.
