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.
sundial1: DLG are not competitive anymore.Warren Buffett once said ,To invest into A Company,Would you buy the product!Aviva were not competitive now they are,Share price Gone more better.Probably you watch Aviva will gain more profit and share Gain.
carer: I always thought insurance companies are cash cows which pay out dividends. At such low share price, it looks very attractive to invest some money in. Of course , insurance is for the unexpected events, sometime you pay out, some time you do not. let us hope the worst is over and better times ahead with better strategy whcih I gusee the company management will have to think about, otherwise what do they get paid for?
sufc555: No us policies only UK Divi tbc in end of year report in March 2019 Vacancy for ceo to leave summer 2019 - speculation it could be Wilson who was removed from Aviva last week would be a good choice has helped share price over last week Discount rate and whiplash reform due to receive royal assent in dec 2018 Whiplash reform will save dlg £500m per annum due to be implemented April 2020 Discount rate change sooner likely feb 2019 one off saving 200m - could result in special divi or increase in year end divi Adverse weather in 2018 to cost 100m My profit target 600m for 2018 or 800m if results are changed to reflect discount change
sundial1: valuehound-only problem when big dividends get paid you get more of a drop on share Price its negative equity, Better a growing share with big dividends, share price will Drop more now hurricane season starts.the kitty axcess has dried up with beast from The east alone
sufc555: Moreover the suggestion of depressed shareprice due ‘increasing competitive pressures’ is made without evidence. There is no suggestion that the market is anymore competitive than it was 12 months ago when the shareprice was £4. More likely the following reasons for depressed price-: - negative outlook for all U.K. facing stock due to Brexit - post ex divi pre 1.8.18 - manipulation of share price pre next divi by insitituions - worries of soft motor pricing ahead of the discount rate /whiplash reforms being implemented - risk of not being put in place /delayed - a belief that the current divi is unsustainable
