danielinnes74: Share price holding up well despite the early analysis of the judgment. Guessing downside was built in?
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.

ganthorpe: 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
b1ggles: 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.
deadly: 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.
b1ggles: 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???
king rat: The following table shows NTA as a %of share price. NTA is based on Numis's estimates following the WTC disaster (Cox and BRIT further reduced by me to reflect WTC reserve increases post the Numis note). Amlin 62% Atrium 79% BRIT 93% Chaucer 79% Cox 19% GoshawK 69% Hardy 66% Hiscox 41% Kiln 69% Ockham 98% SVB 148% Wellington 45% Yes, you can make a case for Hiscox having above average management, but that is already reflected to some extent in the price. Also, a lot of their business comes from the unexciting retail insurance sector. Of the above, I like BRIT best. In my opinion, it offers the best combination of prospects and value. Regards. King Rat
17:06 I believe that the Chubb are still sniffing around the heal's of this company. It has very tight and focused management. Their response, and the share price response to the over selling post 11th Sept shows it is a very robust organisation. I would expect an offer in the £2.50 region to hit the headlines before too long. If you were wise enough to spot this bargain at £0.70 in September, you will already be whooping with joy, if you are still to buy, there is plenty room for improvement. imho dyor
