Bought a very small amount under 7.60, not enough to cause any headache in the case of something unexpected. Possibly available under 7.40, but best keeping in mind wider markets are very strong atm, this price weakness is in stark contrast. If we get some equity volatility would not want to bet where this could end up.

Well there is definitely something strange going on. I'm still waiting for some sort of sign that a bottom is forming.

LRE, BEZ and HSX are all down more or less equally. I don't think they all need fresh capital. There must be a big fund reducing exposure to the sector. Hope it is a mistake...

I got half way through the Q&A session but TBH that level of questioning is above my pay grade on this sector. All available on their IR site.

spooky, you may well be correct. I watched the conference call and they appear to stress financial strength. Perhaps ransomware/cyber attacks could be an area there is some current caution on.

Yes Jack, re BEZ and HSX in particular. Just speculation on my part and as you say they have given no indication of this.

I would be more than surprised if they felt the need to raise funds now following the 375m they added last year.

Hi EI. I’d not considered that (I assume you mean in relation to Hiscox rather than non-life insurers generally ?). The last statement seemed comfortable about their ability to satisfy claims and growth, although they could of course see bigger opportunities elsewhere.

Jack, potentially capital raises on the way?.

Seems to be breaking lower. I see that Beazley has fallen below its 2020 pandemic low so maybe the same about to happen here. I would certainly add at those levels as the outlook now hardly justifies a lower price than the outlook did then. I’ve bought a few Beazley too as the RSI around 30 seems extremely oversold. Just need to be patient now.

Well done Cousin Jack. It's back down to my buy price, which I wasn't expecting. I have a longer time horizon and am looking for £14 at least, which I hope to see by year-end barring any major escalation in Israel.

Back down to the support line. Bought at this level on 5 May for a nice turn on 7th May so back in hoping for a repeat.

I think the tide is beginning to turn with HSX. Each pullback over the past 3 sessions has been followed by increased buying pressure sending the price higher. I am encouraged by this positive sign. :-) Good luck to all holders.

Hyden, I couldn’t agree more. I bought in yesterday at what looked like a bargain price under 810p. Difficult to see much downside risk from that price, which is lower than it was before V day last year (and still is)! One thing I’m puzzled by is why I didn’t have to pay stamp duty on the purchases I made. Can anyone explain why Hiscox is exempt?

I've bought in this morning, half in the ISA and half in the SIPP. I thought yesterday's TS was rather upbeat and I was surprised at the market's reaction. Bull Points i)Rates are hardening. ii) Past reserves look to be more than sufficient and may trigger releases in the future. iii) Exposure to Evergreen is largely immaterial. iv) Exposure to Covid19 looks to be known for claims out to June, when restrictions are supposedly going to end full stop. v) Restoration of Dividends is a priority. The future looks promising and it makes me think, what am I missing?

It is indeed confusing. Either the market is discounting something big regarding the BI costs. Some people estimate it is around £500mio for HSX.

I know it is so confusing. Other stocks have been flying the last 6 to 9 months. Beazley and Hiscox sitting in the doldrums. Swinging into profit again should help as well as interim dividend.

Chris, a poster the SHA board commented yesterday- in a nutshell his view appeared to be a possible limited small exposure. Should stress that I could not even guess the answer, no RNS so far.

Would they have much liability on Ever Green anyway? Would business insure for a delay of a few days? They do seem to have fallen too far and others have indeed bounded back more.
