hopan: Do you think this is the best recovery stock in the market currently? If you look all the other travel, leisure stocks, they are pretty much recovered in price. HSX or insurance is the exception. What do you think?
thewheeliedealer: Hi everyone, My mate Peter @Conkers3 and myself did a ‘Twin Petes Investing’ Podcast last week and part of our discussion includes the outlook for Insurance Stocks like HSX, particularly with Premium Rates rising. As always 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. We also start off with quite a bit about the overall Markets and where they are most likely heading. Anyway, if you use Youtube, Apple, Audioboom, Overcast, Google+ or Spotify you can find it under the 'Conkers Corner' Channel (you want Podcast TPI 42) 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 !! Cheers, WD @wheeliedealer hTTps://
spooky: HSX and BEZ will surely get taken out if their share prices stay at this level.
moreearl: RSa getting bought - looks like its up on M&A speculation. Looks cheap against book value, fair value for a high growth, high margin specialist should be 2 times book. That's about £12.5 ish per share. So plenty of upside here
danielinnes74: Share price holding up well despite the early analysis of the judgment. Guessing downside was built in?
goliard: Pretty brutal few weeks for Hiscox. If the court case goes against them I can imagine the price moving to the 500s before a rebound. Little chance of catching the bottom but would be tempted in the low 600's pence area.
paddyfool: if they lose the case its highly likely the reinsurers will pick up the bill, so as I'm already invested its a mute point. That said in two years time I expect the price to be way ahead of here. Not one to trade unless you are investing on the outcome of the court case. I agree that either way the case goes there will be near term volatility.
bluedaycoming: Well, I haven't seen a US policy, so with any luck, they'll have entirely different priorities. But there was mention of European exposure. Also reinsurance, and the word negligible (on the hit to Hiscox for some policies) was being bandied about at one point. They tried to pay a few small businesses a few hundred pounds, according to one press report as a 'goodwill' payment, with an acknowledgment that wording was 'unclear' - I think that was the word. That suggests guilt to me. My hunch is that this is going to go against hsx. Also, I think the downside isn't built in just yet; plenty of businesses have gone down 95% after a catastrophe. I'm sure the people here are well aware of the risks and have taken steps, but it might be wise for shareholders to hedge some/most/all of their holding, but that's just a passing thought, not advice, 'cause I'm not an advisor and my guesses are often plain wrong. Good luck everyone.
danielinnes74: It was meant as humour but gut feel is this will be very significant. If the liability was relatively low I suspect they’d have taken a view on wordings and settled up to avoid the press and bashing the brand has taken. Fair to say the test case is going to push the share price hugely one way or t’other on judgement day.. in saying that you’d think a lot of the downside is built into the pricing now.
goliard: Hard to imagine that the FCA action won't go all the way to the Supreme Court. Too much at stake here on all sides. Except some volatility in the share price with each stage but I think it's negative overall for insurers. Uncertainty equals drop in share price.
