thewheeliedealer: Hi all, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast a few days ago and part of our discussion includes DLG and some other Insurance Stocks. We also chatted about loads of other Stocks and Ideas for research and a fair bit of educational stuff with regards to Investing and Portfolio Management. Anyway, if you use Youtube, Apple, Audioboom, Overcast or Spotify you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want Podcast TPI 39) and you can find it on Soundcloud at the link below. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful, we try to keep them light and they are totally unscripted, not like all the stuffy financial fodder you are probably more used to !! Happy New Lockdown !! WD @wheeliedealer hTTps://
sufc555: We shall see - but short term lockdown will boost dlg but not weir or itv. RSA are gone
sufc555: Looks like DLG heading for ftse 100 - rsa / Pennon to drop out
father jack1: Personally not a fan of buybacks, they are far from a guarantee of supporting share prices. Would much prefer they would cancel the buyback and use it for a special instead. Will probably sell the day before it goes ex div and bet on the price dropping to 2.80 by next September. Mind you, could drop to that level this week with no deal!
sufc555: Agree - however what we don’t know is the effect of buy backs £150m was cancelled in March - when it restarts in March 2021 will this support the share price post ex divi - there will be no special divi
wba1: Not sure why you see good vaccine news as positive for DLG (other than on general market sentiment). DLG is heavily motor focused, which is the line which has benefitted most from reduced claims. At one point in the first lockdown my ex-colleagues were reporting claims running at 60% of normal levels. A return to normal means a return to normal claims levels. 2020 should be very good (ignoring CEO tendencies to stuff reserves for a rainy day) and 2021 will also get some benefit (as normality will not return overnight), but the longer term implication of normality for motor insurance is a return to normal claims levels. The bigger idiocy was the market marking down insurers who benefitted from lockdown. I would expect DLG just to return to its usual trading in the 300s (ex any suggestions of an approach).
father jack1: A solid yet uninspiring set of figures from a solid yet uninspiring company. The share price will oscillate between 280-340 until next April when they will announce a similar final year figure and dividend to last year.
jonnybig: Great timing this vaccine news. Will give dlg a nice springboard for what will hopefully be a good update tomorrow, then another spike leading to another easy profit take for jonnybig. Dlg is a great trading share. Bounces nicely in a profitable range.
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’.
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.
