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.

speedsgh: Direct Line faces headwinds, says Barclays - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-royal-mail-mitie-and-direct-line/a972479?ref=citywire-money-picture-galleries-list#i=4 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.

eaaxs06: It's that overhang of shares, which have to be sold, that has depressed the market in the past, Barry, so what makes it so different this time, now the share price has risen to higher levels? This 'guarantee' of A Share Tip of the Year smacks of pie in the sky, and merely wishful thinking on your part

eaaxs06: Not sure if its been moved later, or earlier, mctmct, but I doubt it's changed much, as last years' results were announced the same week, on 28th Feb 2013. I'm a little surprised the share's been hit so hard today, with the recent news about selling their life insurance arm (plus going xd, for the special divi, on Wednesday) which I thought would have helped the share price?

0micron: I'm interested to know as well. Can't seem to attribute it to anything apart from tailwind from positive general market sentiment. Was getting a bit discouraged lately by the lack of movement in the share price.

indiestu: With a bit of luck we'll have a little direction after today's RNS. We've been dithering around for a while now and fully deserve the share price to get back up to at least the 230 mark. Question is what'll be the catalyst for the rise?
