My thoughts too. Isn't that their job?

Think a change of accountant is needed. Sounds like he is either lazy or lacking in basic skills.

Now that the buy back is paused they have plenty of cash so divi should be save. They might even give a bonus divi once the dust settles. DLG seem save and should do well. Any other companies or sectors that should do well also? Who will win from this mess?

Reinforces the idea that portfolios should be spread around sectors - some winners some losers but no one could have predicted the events of the past few months.

Exactly encarter, DLG should be much less affected than many with the bulk of their policies being home and motor. People will still pay policies but more people at home = less burglaries and less driving means less motor claims. That’s probably why their share price has held up better than most other stocks and seems a good reason to add at these levels.

I didn't say DLG sold life insurance. As for car insurance it's essential journeys only so obviously will be less cars on the road, less accidents and less claims.

Travel companies, airlines and credit card companies would pick up the majority of risk on holiday cancellation as there is legislation in place to protect consumers. Insurance is last resort

Isn't the big risk to DLG the return they make on their investments which must surely take a big hit this year. Then again if we remain on lockdown for the rest of the year there will be nothing to pay out!!

DLG doesn't sell any life insurance or annuities though. Travel is really the big hit they'll take from covid. Don't foresee significant amounts of people giving up driving completely to the extent it depletes their motor insurance book, and in fact people probably value a private car more now given fears over public transport. Home insurance is also pretty much unaffected.

And life insurance.

No. They could decide to cut it to preserve more cash in these uncertain times but it's unlikely. My feeling is that in 18 months time this situation would have been sorted and more people than ever will be taking out insurance especially holiday cover.

Does the halting of the buy back programme have an effect on the Final dividend? Thanks

FWIW... Direct Line on road back to FTSE 100 - HTTPS://citywire.co.uk/funds-insider/news/the-expert-view-greggs-ashtead-and-direct-line/a1330288#i=4 Direct Line (DLG) may have been relegated from the FTSE 100 but Interactive Investor says it is showing signs of progress as it tries to drag itself back. Full-year 2019 gross written premiums at the insurer have declined slightly to £3.2bn and profits fell 9.8% to £546m but analyst Richard Hunter said the numbers were still ‘fairly strongly ahead of expectations’. The shares rose 3.8% to 324p yesterday. ‘The fact that Direct Line has, to a large extent, trumped expectations has given the share price a welcome boost,’ said Hunter. ‘Indeed, the shares are beginning to knock on the door for a return to the premier index at these levels, which would be impressive given the previous share price decline of 13% over the last year.’ Hunter added that the ‘general direction of travel is positive’ and the market consensus has improved to a ‘buy’.

I agree that buybacks are a waste of time. Companies gambling that they know when to buy their own shares after signalling to the market they have money to burn - its the opposite of a stock overhang and when the buyback has finished and the demand has dried up the share price falls...
