hallucinogenix: Any idea why the big jump in share price today ? I think i have a better understanding of quantum physics than the stock market...
porsche1945: Female CEO performance on ftse 350 pretty dire, see itv, whitbread and Imperial, all disastrous for share price long before UK’s covid fiasco, another reason to be a seller of this.
speedsgh: FWIW... Direct Line on road back to FTSE 100 - HTTPS:// 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’.
fenners66: 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...
denc: Divi is likely to be 22p a share total. Around 8.5% yield. Share price should rise further on the announcement that should be due next week.
jubberjim: Has anyone any ideas as to where we go from here Seems to be moribund as very little movement on a day to day basis Thought it should get a little higher but seems to be struggling to break upwards Is this due to the uncertainty created by these interminable investigations into insurance premiums and the like Also these latest floods across Britain are giving me pause for thought so am going to hold of for now until some clarity is forthcoming as regards impact on share price
fllegend: Similar trends to H1 2019 results when share price was circa 360p. Would expect some recovery over the next few months on these. Of course there is still a risk margin priced in over the outcome of the FCA pricing probe.
smithp1: If it were bad news would they really want a crashing share price on their capital markets day might they not do that the day before or sooner ?
fllegend: Re. differential between Admiral and DLG share price hit - Admiral has a much smaller home insurance portfolio than DLG. The FCA has identified that big profit margins and hiking prices on renewal is much worse in home than motor, so the negative impact on margins will likely be much bigger in home market than motor.
fllegend: City analysts and investors have a pretty poor understanding of how insurance businesses work. The share price rises whenever average motor insurance price rises is a perfect example of this. It doesn't take a genius to see premium prices could rise 5% but if claim costs rise 10% the bottom line profitability is gonna be hit. The real number to look for is the COR or Combined Operating Ratio, which is the ratio of all the costs (claims, expenses, commission etc) against gross written premiums. On that measure DLG compares pretty favourably with the cohort, having never exceeded 100% in the recent past. What's more, the latest H1 2019 results showed that the company is accumulating capital to prepare for Brexit, and is now at the very top end of what the regulators recommend for the Solvency Capital Requirement. In essence the company has a massive cash pile, is still growing its own brand policies, and have some very well established brands.
