@ clockwork “ fun out the game “, what possible fun is there investing a in 99 pc of U.K. stocks? They have been on a downward trajectory for years, capital destructive dross with declining business models, guessing your investments in the few thousands range rather than hundreds of thousands or you would not be so sanguine.

‘Add’ defensive Direct Line to income portfolio, says Peel Hunt The defensive traits of Direct Line (DLG) will ensure it can deliver an attractive income stream throughout the Covid-19 uncertainty, says Peel Hunt. Analyst Andreas van Embden retained his ‘add’ recommendation and target price of 300p on the shares, which were trading at 281.5p yesterday. ‘Direct Line’s defensive traits, Covid-19 resiliency, and diversified business model will continue to deliver an attractive income stream,’ he said. With an average dividend yield in the past seven years of 7%, the insurer is ‘one of the more consistent and attractive income stocks in the sector’, as well as being ‘well positioned’ ahead of the City regulator’s insurance pricing review, van Embden said.

Well that's a moot point then isn't it, rather takes the fun out of the game.

Yep. Some of that was previously offset by holiday insurance cancellation claims but now that they are covid savvy it won't be an issue for next results. Expect another nice divi.

With traffic down so much accident claims must be significantly lower for direct line, which is a positive

You have a point. I did the same just before last ex-div date. Bought two weeks before at £2.90 and sold at £3:40 a day before ex-div date

Not really, dividend stocks are dying and growth has been the go to for five years, looking at the graph for this it is range bound with a slightly falling apex each year, ie highs are lower, just trade it, buy now sell day before ex div, make 20 pc a year instead of ten.

It’s not really it will be the same price in 2 years as it is now ex dividend. It is completely range bound, 270/340 ish, its a trading share between dividends. U.K. dividend stocks are hopeless for capital growth, like the country itself, best days are well behind them.

Worked in the industry for 15 years. If there was a f..k up I usually ledgered on 1 months free cover to a policy, or in the case of a major f..k up 3 months free cover. Never had a client that was not nice as pie once that was offered.

Mike, if you have a look on Trustpilot, many of the major insurers rate poorly. There is usually a good reason for this, Great experience = less likely to leave a review. Poor experience = a bad review!.

A provider can't give a renewal quote thats higher than what a quote would be to a new customer, that doesn't stop people shopping around it just means you don't have to ring your provider EVERY YEAR just to ask for them to apply a discount to your quote that you have to do EVERY YEAR.

It will happen, but as it's a zero sum game it makes no difference imv, unless I'm missing something salient. The end result is more expensive motor insurance for those that shop around, who were effectively subsidised by those who did not.
