I'm as certain as one can be that my other quality holdings will recover, however they have a head start on this due to not falling as far or fast :))

At least you know that this share will recover, gbh2. My target of 300 still looks a long way off, though.

Others are doing flat packs. Sadly LGENs seem to be for smaller units than government guidelines on living space. z

Deutsche Bank upbeat on European insurance sector, raising price targets for a swathe of UK names - HTTPS://tinyurl.com/y8eqoemr The bank's analysts said insurers "look reasonably positioned – cushioned against market weakness by strong balance sheets and on PEs that are well within the long-term trading range” Deutsche Bank has issued an upbeat note on the European insurance sector at the start of 2018, raising price targets for a swathe of UK names including Admiral Group PLC (LON:ADM), esure Group PLC (LON:ESUR), Legal & General Group PLC (LON:LGEN), Prudential PLC (LON:PRU), St James’s Place PLC (LON:STJ), and RSA Insurance Group PLC (LON:RSA). In a note to clients, the German bank’s analysts said: “Strong balance sheets provide underpin; rising yields offer optionality.” They added: “DB's strategists are generally cautious on the year ahead, but insurers nonetheless look reasonably positioned – cushioned against market weakness by strong balance sheets and on PEs that are well within the long-term trading range.” The analysts concluded: “Overall, we feel the sector can modestly outperform in 2018, particularly if bond yields rise (as DB expects) – though given our cautious top-down view, our preference is for higher-quality/safer stocks.” They noted that many of the higher-quality insurance stocks performed well in 2017, and selectively they see this momentum continuing, highlighting Prudential. The analysts also analysed the downside in UK insurers from UK political risk, concluding that for most stocks the impact of a hard Brexit, for instance, is manageable. They said that, in this regard, the December rally in UK insurers looks justified, while Aviva PLC (LON:AV.) and - to a lesser extent - L&G still look oversold. In contrast, the analysts downgraded their rating for Phoenix Group Holdings PLC (LON:PHNX) to ‘hold’ from ‘buy’, primarily reflecting their perception that “the market for UK closed book acquisitions has become more competitive, implying less potential accretion on future deals.”

Legal & General offering growth and dividends - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-ig-legal-and-general-and-supergroup/a1078695#i=3 Insurer Legal & General (LGEN) is offering ‘future growth’ alongside its ‘sizeable’ dividend thanks to the UK’s ageing population and need for pensions, says Hargreaves Lansdown. Analyst Nicholas Hyett said the insurer, which provides life insurance and retirement services to over 10 million people, was offering ‘a sizeable dividend and future growth’. ‘An ageing population has driven growth, but Legal & General has impressed us by latching on to wider trends,’ he said. ‘It was an early entrant into low-cost tracker funds, and now manages £331.5 billion of index trackers. Companies are now required by law to provide pension schemes, and simple, low-cost funds are popular. ‘L&G already has 2.2 million personal pension customers, and employer and employee contributions are set to rise.’ Hyett added there was also a £2 trillion opportunity in final salary pensions that need to be bought out. ‘All this is set to drive growth. Recurring revenues should make profits fairly predictable, helping to underpin the dividend. The prospective yield is 6%,’ he said. The shares added 2.3p to 270.5p yesterday.

Doubled my holding here yesterday after the trading update (and the price dropped!). To me this looks like a strong buy for income seekers like myself. Even after today's (modest) rise the yield is still around 5.5% and looks pretty secure. The lifetime mortgage market is likely to expand quite quickly imv. Having recently retired some form of equity release may well be on my to-do list at some point in the future. It's quite a hot topic of conversation with my contempories.

Superb update. I couldn't have written better myself. Pity the market doesn't seem excited. What a miserly response.

backs up my comments on 29 november. so much for the recent downgrade from Societe Generale. Sounds like an attempt to manipulate the share price.I wonder why?
