It's getting tossed around amongst illiquidity. +3% in the morning, yet it closed down -0.4%. Volume per yahoo = a meagre 280k vs a 30-day avg. vol. of 685k, ie 41% Good luck if you have any volume to offload right now...

Fri/16th +1.03% 584 > 590 Mon/19th +3.39% Tue/20th +2.13% Wed 21st +3.53% > 645 = +9.32% since Friday close, +10.5% since Friday open Meanwhile: Ftse-100 Fri/16 at the open to this pm's close = +0.17% Ftse-250 [ditto] = effectively flat Only notable news re: LRE I'm aware of in the interim is Philidelphia Fin Mngmt Inc reduced their short from -0.61% to -0.49% on Tue/20th. On 201.3mm issued shares that's a reduction of +241.5k shares. 30-Day average volume at present = c660-665k, ie that PFM trade = about 36.4% of the daily average.

Some of those issues you list are mentioned in Hiscox results today. LRE are likely getting negative read-across from that. 'Hiscox warns of slower premium growth towards end of year'. hTtps://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/hiscox-warns-slower-premium-growth-083939775.html I hadn't heard of SCOR, hTtps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCOR_SE Additionally looking at Google/news on them it seems they've recently aleady rebuffed one M&A approach.

Interesting, thx for that Harley. Next date on my radar is the Record Date 9-Nov, when the £/$ FX rate applicable to the conversion of the US$0.20 dividend is set at noon. FWIW Sterling rose 1.4% vs US$ yesterday, it's largest rise since January 2018.

hTTps://www.investegate.co.uk/lancashire-hld-ltd/lre/3rd-quarter-results/201811010700049514F/? 3Q out this morning. Haven't read it in detail yet but noted: 'SPECIAL DIVIDEND OF $0.20 PER COMMON SHARE' ... 'Lancashire announces that its Board of Directors has declared a special dividend for 2018 of $0.20 per common share (approximately (£0.15) per common share at the current exchange rate), which will result in an aggregate payment of approximately $40.0 million. The dividend will be paid in Pounds Sterling on 12 December 2018 (the "Dividend Payment Date") to shareholders of record on 9 November 2018 (the "Record Date") using the £ / $ spot market exchange rate at 12 noon London time on the Record Date.'

Interesting.I work in the industry and can only assume m+a speculation would push the price up - it's a tough environment with lots of large losses around , limited prior year reserve release to support results wafer thin margins and I think a smaller market place will evolve as a consequence

It was just an observation from cranking my weekly portfolio numbers. +/- %numbers like that (either way) are *BIG* for me and a '-' of such usually spells really bad L/T downside IME, and that's rare in my late-stage 'low-drama portolfio'. To see it reversed right back up like that is a first. But I'd have to work in the City, +/or closer to the industry to tell you quite what happened there. - The last time in the past week or two I was keeping a weather-eye on the daily volume versus 30-day average though suggested more trading, so whatever caused it must have been something pretty unusual... IMPO....

I've run the weekly numbers on my FTSE-350 stocks. The last 2 weeeks have been a yo-yo for LRE. It's extrememly rare for me to see almost 'symmetrical' volatility like this... Last week -50.5p/-8.6% from 587 This week +50/+9.3% to 586.5 If not for Friday's 1/2p drop, we'd have ended exactly where we started 2 weeks ago!

I work in the sector - personal view - m and a for the smaller caps can be the only way to achieve shareholder value - look at ren re and scor both publicly in play - all have good profile and platforms but can't grow top line and bottom line simultaneously being left behind to flounder....

RNS extracts this morning: 'Insurer Lancashire To Record Negative Return After Catastrophe Claims Insurer Lancashire Holdings Ltd on Monday said it recorded a negative return on equity for the third quarter of 2018 due to losses from a number... Given these loss estimates, the Company expects that it will produce a negative return on equity for the third quarter of 2018. Absent these events, the Company would have been profitable for the third quarter. The Company also expects to remain profitable for the first 9 months of 2018. Lancashire will provide a more detailed update as part of its earnings release covering the Group's financial statements for the third quarter of 2018 due for release on 1 November 2018. ' ------------- Curious statement in para 2^. Akin to 'Sh*t happens, but if it didn't we'd have made money...'

Major flooding on coast but inland wont feel it so damage is limited compared with what was expected which is why the share price here is rising IMHO.

"I don't care if this goes down to a Category 1," CNN meteorologist Chad Myers said. "We're still going to have a Category 4 storm surge." The category is essentially the wind speed. But there will still be major flooding from the big storm surge and an awful lot of heavy rain. Just not as many upturned caravans...

Now a cat 2 storm and the price rises could be an interesting hurricane season betting on storm stengths.

Hurricane Florence - the most powerful storm to threaten the Carolinas in nearly three decades - is expected to strengthen, say forecasters www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45479766 Apparently the 12 foot surge is expected at landfall, coinciding with high tide... I wish the best of luck to the people of the Carolinas!!

Does anyone have the FX rate that'll be applied to the latest div [x-ref Speeds post 1353] ? It always surprises me how damned opaque such things are on the LRE/Investors webpages [to be clear: their own website section for investors] - It still appears to be unpublished on their own website > hxxps://www.lancashiregroup.com/en/investors/shareholders/dividend-history.html
