http://www.my-share.co.uk/Newspaper-share-tips-May-2011/newspaper-share-tips-may-2011.html Daily Telegraph The insurance market changed as a result of the spate of catastrophes this year and last. Insurers tend to rebound after one big hit, but rates rise as losses accumulate. That was the story insurer Hiscox was telling yesterday with its first-quarter results. Reinsurance rates are back up to last year's levels and higher in some cases. It expects widespread increases in June and July this year, with the potential for a 10% increase in US catastrophe insurance. Hiscox is expensive and insurance is not for the faint-hearted. That said, the company is well placed to take advantage of rising reinsurance rates. A cautious buy.

These things happen in insurance - no big deal. Still makes a good return.

Interesting - drops 3% because it's quantified the expected losses from a couple of events today. These losses are within budget and, more significantly, will be replicated among much of the quoted sector, which hasn't budged.

Great year end results - this is a quality player heading for the FTSE 100 in the medium term.

Looks as if this could be breaking out here, added bonus no stamp duty to pay on this one.

They seem to be developing their retail brand quite strongly as well. Potential FTSE100 player in a few years time.

Agreed - for insurance, this is one inovative company fully focussed on bottom line. The seem to attract the best talent (on the ground spies have told me) from the relevant markets they work in...

Yes, I am. Bought a few today. Think Hiscox have lots of potential - one day I can see them being in the FTSE100. They seem to have the right attitude and a strong business model. Not cheap, but quality rarely is!

No one interested in this? Probably a reflection of what a hidden gem it is

You are not alone. I also have an interest in HSX dating back a couple of years. HSX is the only bit of blue I have on my portfolio, up about 20%. I have considered top slicing recently to take some profit but have not yet found the moment.

Anyone interested in this stock? I bought in today based on chart action - as far as I can see there is no historical resistance from this point and all the insurers seem to be benefiting from talk of increased premiums next year. A bullish stock compared to many others at the moment....

Hiscox wonders what all the racket is Lloyd's insurer Hiscox could not have been expecting to arouse much excitement from yesterday's interim management statement. "You've just got me off a tennis court," puffs chairman Robert Hiscox from his pad in Marlborough, Wiltshire. "I'm sitting in a sweaty shirt - you stopped me from playing the third set. My chief executive, Bronek Masojada, is in the US. That's how relaxed we are." Mmmm. Gross written premiums are down 10pc. (Telegraph, 13 May)

very bullish on this one, great fundamentals, sector doing well, all looking good. Profit at record levels, and this year a relitively quiet hurricane season, should make for good figures looking forward.

Interim results. Excellent. http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1187595879&article=21935402&symbol=L%5EHSX http://www.advfn.com/p.php?pid=nmona&cb=1187595879&article=21935781&symbol=L%5EHSX Hiscox H1 pretax profit rises 72 pct, beating analysts forecasts LONDON (Thomson Financial) - Hiscox Ltd, the Lloyd's of London insurer and reinsurer, said first-half pretax profits rose over 72 pct, helped by a strong performance at its catastrophe insurance division. Pretax profits for the first half of the year to end-June rose to 105.6 mln stg, up from 61.3 mln stg last year. The result beat analysts' forecasts of 89 mln stg, according to a consensus forecast supplied by the company. Gross written premiums for the first half of the year to end-June rose to 733 mln stg from 625.1 mln stg a year earlier. Combined ratio for the period fell to 84.8 pct from 94.6 pct this time last year. The group said it expects 30 mln stg of losses from UK flooding in June, but that this sum is within expectations for such events. Hiscox also gave its shareholders a boost by raising the interim dividend to 4 pence per share from 3 pence a year earlier. alexander.ferguson@thomson.com af/jr COPYRIGHT Copyright AFX News Limited 2007.
