Hiscox posted Interims last week. Gross premiums written increased by 9.2% to $2,649.8 million. Premium growth and portfolio adjustments lead to a strong underwriting result of $123.2 million (H1 2021: $99.8 million), up 23.4% on the prior period. The ultimate Group loss from all risks in Ukraine and Russia, including aviation, is $48 million net of reinsurance. The Group remains conservatively reserved with an 11.0% margin above actuarial best estimate and is strongly capitalised with BSCR of 200%. Investment performance was weak due to market conditions with a loss of $214.1m in the HY period. Valuation is average, the share price lacks momentum. HSX is a solid mid-cap insurance name and certainly worth monitoring, but there is no compelling rush to buy....

HSX doesn't seem to have taken the hit that other insurers are taking. Further to fall?

Sentiment looks strongly against the sector currently, look at the LRE share price.
I sold out of BEZ last week but will review on their early November update.
BEZ looks particularly interesting in cyber, IF their recent better claims experience
continues, however no recent BOD buying there.


ec,
thanks again for the info, much appreciated.

As long as they pay dividends, I don't mind this stock or BEZ is undervalued or stay at the same level for years. This is in my SIPP and can stay there for a long time. It is only annoying to see the MarktoMarket of this holding, other than that, as long as they start paying dividends, all is fine for me.

BEZ paid 12.3p as a dividend in 2019 for 35p EPS. If they can repeat the same performance again, that is 4.1% dividend yield for me (on 300p share price)... there is also capital upside option I have...

Recent broker target share price reductions can have some effect on sentiment as well.

I doubt that algos created this much of rerating, it looks more like a large institution or fund is reducing exposure to this sub-sector. LRE, HSX, and BEZ all move in synchronise wave.

I try to understand their rationale for reducing exposure. Do they expect defaults in the sector? Do they expect big ticket claims from Cyber/ransomware? Do they expect a damaging hurricane season? Maybe combination...

Or they may be thinking their fixed income portfolio will go down in value due to rising rates? or they think we are at the top of the insurance cycle.

or is it just a bad timing for them?

Bought a very small amount of Lancashire yesterday, just 1,000 shares.
Tried to start some discussion on the LRE board a number of times but no takers.


Gut call is HSX appears cheap and what we are seeing is algo dominated movements or
perhaps a large institutional holder/s reducing exposure to this sector.

On fundamentals, is cyber ransomware risk being adequately priced..

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.

Great Trading Statement, lets hope that this pushes the share price above 900p today!!

HSX and BEZ will surely get taken out if their share prices stay at this level.
