Massive over-reaction - no support price established though hence its dropping like a stone. Once base price is found this will recover pretty sharp or someone will make a bid at this bargain price, sitting watching and waiting and poised to buy more!

Be surprised if this didn't at least recover up to the £12.50 area later on today.

Seems a huge over reaction as far as I can read. Maybe something else is happening that we haven't heard about. Maybe time for a top up later in the week.

Trading statement went down badly, surprising considering recemt losses must have been expected. Maybe the wild fires are the bad news.

Don't see that the IMS should be read so negatively. Gross written premiums increased by 12% to £561.7 million (2014: £501.6 million) in the first quarter as the Group continues to find good opportunities for profitable growth. "It's been an excellent start to the year, flattered by a good claims experience and favourable foreign exchange movements. While the market has been tough, with a reduction in pricing in the big ticket businesses, we have continued to grow in our specialty lines and expand our ILS business."

ganthorpe - just look at the same arguments here a year ago.

Are HSX pulling off a version of the three card trick? They seem to be paying out 60p per share and consolidating with 88 shares for 100 now held. Based on 1000 shares we get £600 cash capital return and lose 120 shares worth £950, if the share price stays the same after the consolidation as HSX expect. A similar thing seems to have happened last year. What point have I missed? GAN

In fact price went up to 730p today, even better. That despite insurers getting hammered by the budget.

Thanks for that, deadly, I guessed it must need to; I had been making the assumption that, as with most of these consolidations/returns of capital, it had been calculated to resume on the same share price; not in this case, clearly.

You are missing the fact that after the ex-rights date the share price should increase to around 676p to reflect the increased value/share. The value/share will not drop, because there are fewer shares.

I'm completely bemused about the return of capital. 1000 shares at current share price = £6,520. After consolidation/dividend = 890 shares @ 652p + dividend 1000 x 50p = £6,300 Surely the value must drop after 18 Mar, due to their use of the NTA as a basis for the consolidation, so why would a holder not sell now and buy after that date? Or am I missing something???

It's fallen quite a bit since December, but the results were good and the return of capital is a bonus. So as always, good value here and nice quiet board.

They may not handle their AGM well, but they are a fine business for generating shareholder value. Tremendous record.

The Hiscox AGM showed how shareholder democracy is being undermined and AGMs turned into an obsolescent tradition by some companies. This was interesting in that the company held their AGM in Bermuda where they are now domiciled so there was a video link to a meeting room in London. You might think that would be a useful technique for other companies to adopt (for example those registered in Scotland who hold their AGMs in Edinburgh or Glasgow), but not when it is handled in the quite appalling manner as did Hiscox. Questions from the audience were challenged as to validity, separate resolutions combined into one vote and there was a general rush to complete the meeting in record time.
