velocytongo: Another week of above 5 yr av death rate - +1,444/+15.4%. Although great for DTY, why are no journalists asking why the death rate has been +9% above a 5 yr av that is already inflated by Covid.
channonout: Channon's gone but still pulling the strings behind the scenes, his toxic management succesfully tanking the sahre price. The puppet team left in place won't make a difference. Phoenix out!
yikyak: VT - An elevated death rate 'should' feed through and lead to an elevated share price for the market theory. IY - I don't see an explosion as such rather a continued heavy stream of unexpected serious illneses in the most unexpected candidates. Obviously far more noticable in the young and previously fit.
velocytongo: Keeping an eye on the death rate. YTD act deaths only 1.3% below the 5 year av. and DTY have started taking market share with the price reset.
velocytongo: Because if the death rate falls off a cliff, as it was doing 6 weeks ago, DTY are in deep sh1t. The low pricing strategy to take market share will take time and dent profits in the short term, that's why the death rate needs to stay at nr 5 yr av to prevent a major covenant breach.
tombomb: No idea - why you keep posting death rate. The small volumes that this will fluctuate by (that is across the whole country and all Funeral Directors) will have no bearing on DTY performance - despite what may have been said. The only way to grow is by winning share off competitors not relying on market changes.
velocytongo: m_kerr, the whole industry has been at it for years. the idea that independents were any more ethical than dty and coop is nonsense. today, if you look in the windows of independents, you'll see that their prices for the lowest cost option is 30-40% higher. what dty are doing with pricing now is set to put the screws on the independent that have enjoyed bloated profits for years. i agree with your comments re past behaviour and the flawed business model, but phoenix wants to and is changing. the rest of the industry will have to follow suit or fold.
velocytongo: I listened to that Moneybox program a few weeks and it was claimed that DTY would step up to take over providers that could not/were not able to be regulated. I'd be suspicious about the cos can't/don't want to be regulated. I think some of them may be exposed as Ponzi schemes/ badly run.
m_kerr: the issue i'd have with dignity, is their business model was, and still is, ripping off bereaved people on funerals. up until fairly recently, they existed to buy up independents, and jack up prices, simple as that. they don't have any better service than the independents, and the extremely high prices they charge have been shown to be unsustainable, as a huge gap now exists between what they and their competition charge. this is a highly unethical company, and i hope they continue to lose market share so that fewer people get ripped off.
mrx9000: Old news from 22nd April but alas just for the record... "Dignity, the funeral director, has suffered a shareholder revolt after investors voted to oust chair Clive Whiley and replace him with a partner from asset manager Phoenix, sparking a wave of resignations from fellow board members. Some 55 per cent of shareholders that voted backed the removal of Whiley, who was appointed in September 2019, with 61 per cent supporting the appointment of Gary Channon, chief investment officer at Phoenix Asset Management Partners. The news was announced at an extraordinary general meeting on Thursday morning. Chair of the audit committee Dean Moore confirmed that Gillian Kent and Paul Humphreys, both of whom are non-executive directors, would resign with immediate effect. Moore said he would also step down from the board in due course. London-based Phoenix holds almost 30 per cent of Dignity. Ahead of the meeting, the asset manager said it did not believe Dignity or Whiley were acting in shareholders’ best interests. Dignity’s share price has plunged 75 per cent in the past five years. The company sank to a loss before tax of £19.6m in the 12 months to December 25, compared with a profit of £44.1m in 2019. That was despite the pandemic causing a 14 per cent rise year on year in the number of UK deaths. Phoenix, which is a long-term investor that seeks out businesses it believes are cheap because of short-term issues, said it was delighted with the results. “We thank our fellow shareholders for their support, we now have to show our ourselves worthy of it and we will get straight to work on that today.” Granular Capital and Artemis, two UK fund managers, each have shareholdings of more than 10 per cent, according to data from S&P Capital IQ. Artemis declined to comment, while Granular Capital did not respond to a request for comment. The ousting of a chair at a shareholder meeting is rare in the UK. Since 2016, only a handful of UK companies have been subject to resolutions to remove the chair, including Petropavlovsk last year, according to SquareWell, the consultancy Norway’s oil fund, the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund, voted against the proposal to oust Whiley and replace him with Channon, while a top-20 shareholder said he was extremely worried about the outcome. He said: “We are very concerned there is going to be complete vacuum and chaos. Phoenix are acting extremely irresponsibly. “For the company, the stakeholders, the bereaved customer, it is potentially a disaster for everyone.” Phoenix previously said it was not “seeking to control the board” and that its proposals were in “the best interests of the long-term shareholder value of Dignity”. Channon would not receive any pay if he were appointed executive chair, the group said. The asset manager is now due to present a plan for Dignity at the company’s annual meeting in June. Dignity and rival the Co-operative Group Limited together account for 30 per cent of funeral branches in the UK. In December, the Competition and Markets Authority found that funeral director fees quoted by Dignity were on average £1,400 more expensive than those quoted by smaller, typically family-owned firms. The CMA concluded that, because the recently bereaved tended to be “insensitive to price”, it was not surprising that a “lack of effective competition has resulted in higher prices than we would expect to see in a well-functioning market”. Dignity’s share price jumped about 4 per cent immediately after the meeting but has fallen back since then. It is up almost 1 per cent, at 650p. "
