carer: I always thought insurance companies are cash cows which pay out dividends. At such low share price, it looks very attractive to invest some money in. Of course , insurance is for the unexpected events, sometime you pay out, some time you do not. let us hope the worst is over and better times ahead with better strategy whcih I gusee the company management will have to think about, otherwise what do they get paid for?
jrphoenixw2: Since I didn't know this was due here is what's^ referred to.... hTtp:// Direct Line Insurance Group PLC Trading Update for the third quarter of 2018 06/11/2018 7:00am UK Regulatory (RNS & others)... [contines]
sufc555: No us policies only UK Divi tbc in end of year report in March 2019 Vacancy for ceo to leave summer 2019 - speculation it could be Wilson who was removed from Aviva last week would be a good choice has helped share price over last week Discount rate and whiplash reform due to receive royal assent in dec 2018 Whiplash reform will save dlg £500m per annum due to be implemented April 2020 Discount rate change sooner likely feb 2019 one off saving 200m - could result in special divi or increase in year end divi Adverse weather in 2018 to cost 100m My profit target 600m for 2018 or 800m if results are changed to reflect discount change
sundial1: valuehound-only problem when big dividends get paid you get more of a drop on share Price its negative equity, Better a growing share with big dividends, share price will Drop more now hurricane season starts.the kitty axcess has dried up with beast from The east alone
sundial1: or say timber to share price.
sufc555: Moreover the suggestion of depressed shareprice due ‘increasing competitive pressures’ is made without evidence. There is no suggestion that the market is anymore competitive than it was 12 months ago when the shareprice was £4. More likely the following reasons for depressed price-: - negative outlook for all U.K. facing stock due to Brexit - post ex divi pre 1.8.18 - manipulation of share price pre next divi by insitituions - worries of soft motor pricing ahead of the discount rate /whiplash reforms being implemented - risk of not being put in place /delayed - a belief that the current divi is unsustainable
sundial1: Can't be a special dividend,Now price Is More likely equal weight. with having Share price down.
sufc555: this share has hit £4 in each of last two years - it will again in 2018 - the problem is that there is a lot of resistance at this level - no doubt 1st august will see further rise in divi and share price - we shall see
sundial1: Would not surprise me if vodafone will Drop to 150 a share.So be prepared to gain divi to lose more on share price.
cwa1: OK, for the record, I've just had a few at 368.... XD on 5/4/18 for 28.6p. IF-and it is clearly a HUGE hostage to fortune-IF the brokers are correct in their consensus dividends for years ending 2018 and 2019 we should get in the region of 29p in each year. So taken together we should receive approximately 87p in dividends in just over 2 year's time. That's a whopping 24% of the current share price in that period alone. Before anyone says it; I know these forecasts may turn out to be worth less than the electrons they are committed to and that, all other things being equal, the share price should decrease by the value of the dividends BUT it is till a prodigiously high return If it comes to pass. Fingers crossed and all that......
