... 'Add', where they suggest there should be a +26.5% upside in the 12 months ahead? As I recall 'Add' is one the lowest levels of enthusiasm on the positive side of the scale. Seems contradictory to me.

RSA is -9.4% at time of writing. No wonder there's read-across.

A lot of Insurers are Red today. Not specific to DLG.

Getting a whack today. I read elsewhere of a new inquiry into insurance companies ripping-off loyal customers. DLG - guilty as charged, although they seem to be cleaning-up their game of late. Perhaps explains today's price action if the market perceives DLG as vulnerable - which they are.

I agree. The more it goes down the more attractive it gets. I just wish I was buying in now.

sundial1 - I suppose there's not much point pointing out that you're being counter-intuitive, i.e that the falling price driven purely by macro factors rather than DLG's performance makes the yield higher and the P/E lower, and the PTBV lower?

Around £510 M on pre tax is the consensus for the full year, 539 M for '19.

Dlg do offer products via comparison sites - Churchill / green flag / privilege - the reason to keep dlg shares is the yield - currently 10% - that is the reason why you hold a share after all - this is a company that makes £600m a year significantly more than admiral yet is worth a billion less

Admiral have already said it's of interest. Amazon have been recruiting over the last two years for a European based insurance business, no details of what it entails have been released. Of more immediate interest/concern is DLG's rather pedestrian growth rates re the sector. Now either other companies or pricing more aggressively to gain share, or DLG may need to refresh their marketing campaign.

I understand that the talk is of Amazon /Google creating a price comparison website, not actually providing insurance. The margins in insurance are quite low as it is (relying mainly on investment income) and I can't see amazon, google, etc. wishing to muddy their reputations with providing anything other than convenience for consumers. If they did produce their own comparison data perhaps DLG - which famously does not appear on (pay to go on) price comparison websites could do well? (assuming that their basic offering is competitive /value for money).

Could look at it another way, meaning to get started quickly they could bid for DLG. Long shot I know....

It's been rumoured for a while insurance is their next big target area- The great disruptor, or not so great depending on your viewpoint.

'Amazon shocks price comparison websites with talks on insurance push' Daily Telegraph^ article this morning re: Amazon muscling in to the insurance price comparison sector. Seems to have rocked the share sector today...

That's the trouble scrwal, special divs by their nature are just that, and wishing they were more like regular divs might be unrealistic. The upside is if a share also pays out a base-line non-Special div, at least there is something coming in and you remain invested with the hope of Specials in future. AFAUI insurers typically don't pay Specials until their year-end accounts have been signed off, when they can guage their required level of insurance collateral funding, vs their projected [year-ahead and beyond] underwriting volume. Certainly in the case of Lancashire Holdings/LRE that was how it worked. If they felt they were holding excess collateral, ie funds that had no good productive use for, they'd pay it out in a Special. But when claims were running high, and/or they saw circumstances that presented a good opportunity that would require collateral then they didn't pay one. - I agree with you though it creates an at times mad roller-coaster on the income side of things, but as part of a wider x-sector portfolio... er, it can feel a bit like having a portfolio position in Premium Bonds.
