fenners66: Woodhawk - Of course the shares pay out about 9% over the next 6 months, but really the yield has to be assessed over the year as - every thing being equal the share price should fall by as much when it goes ex-dividend and only getting it back again over a year... So we could gain a divi and lose capital initially
pete123456: I expect a small rise in the share price up to the ex div date as the 28.6p is very attractive.
sufc555: these are the standout results of the season according to Barclays - I was surprised as to how little the share price moved after the announcement on the 9th feb - how these are valued at 20% less than RSA is beyond me - bring on 8am! for me this is a culmination of 5 years work
yump: I can count around 70 spookings in the last year and a half and yet the share price is pretty much the same.
eaaxs06: Yes, me too, carer, very pleased with that after holding from the IPO. The share price often spikes dramatically on good news, so I'll be looking to get back in before the end of the year.
sufc555: Govt reply to discount rate consultation released 3.8.17, this may delay half year results Expect substantial re rating of share price and special divi
speedsgh: Direct Line faces headwinds, says Barclays - HTTP:// UK motor insurers have been the best performing insurance stocks in the past year but Direct Line (DLG) had its time in the sun, says Barclays. Analyst Alan Devlin retained his ‘equal weight’ but reduced his share price target from 366p to 357p. The shares fell 8.8p to close 2.48% lower at 346.5p. Devlin said Hastings and Admiral had ‘led the pack, increasing 26% and 19% respectively’ over the past year and pricing continues to increase 10% year-on-year. ‘Indeed, we are now lapping price increases on top of price increases and full year results should benefit from both a strong top-line and price increases of the last four quarters earnings through the P&L. Claims inflation itself is picking up, which could fuel further pricing momentum into 2017,’ he said. However, the positive momentum won’t be felt in all insurance stocks. ‘We believe Direct Line is fairly valued, faces headwinds from the loss of the Nationwide and Sainsbury’s contracts, and faces more pressure in home insurance versus peers,’ he said.
eaaxs06: The press release talks of 'all of the net proceeds will be returned to shareholders' shauney2, so could be nearer the sale figure of £430m, than the actually gain of £160m? Either way, its more good news and should help the share price move further forward. In all my years of share trading, I've never had a share that pay's so much (and so many) dividends.
eaaxs06: It certainly hasn't taken long to recover from yesterdays' profit taking. I'm guessing a few fund managers are thinking ahead, so hopefully the share price will be healthy next week as well.
