Are Citi trying to grab some cheap shares ?.. What happens if what they are predicting as a downturn in EPS does not materialise on 6/3.. can LGEN sue them for manipulation of share price ?... When there is bullish recommendation we hardly move a jot on share price , but as soon as a sniff of bad press they always tank in FTSE. I wait , see & add .. GLA

melmoo - that isn't Latin - more like b*llsh*t!

Anyway, it allows their cronies a better entry point.

Well, I substantively disagree with Citi's views - but I would, obviously, that's why I'm long here already. Would be interested in the detail, as some of the "-ive investment variances" (commercial property, LGC's equity hits) are possibly more visible than some of their successes.

I wouldn't suspect too many surprises from the insurance book - or, in other words, if it is adverse to expectations, it WILL be a surprise to the downside.

If this dips to sub 225p before the results, I'll top up marginally, I think.

All they are saying is no dividend rise.Happy with current level compared to most of my other shares. Great income play at these levels.I have looked at dip as an opportunity rather than the effect on my portfolio.

from Sharecast: Citi has put L&G on negative watch

(Sharecast News) - Legal & General was under the cosh on Friday as Citi cut its 2023 earnings per share estimates and opened a 30-day 'negative catalyst watch' on the shares ahead of full-year results on 6 March.

The bank cut its 2023 EPS estimate by around 27%, primarily driven by negative investment variances but said its operating profit estimate also declined, by around 3%.

"There is some follow to the outer years as our EPS estimates decline by circa 10%," it said.

Citi said it expects material EPS downgrades into results "and although this is primarily investment variance driven, this highlights the opacity of Legal & General Capital (LGC) and comes against a backdrop of L&G being the best performing UK life insurer over the past three months and what we see as limited upside capital return surprise potential".

At 0812 GMT, the shares were down 2.7% at 234.70p.

Jubber I’ve been following you round these boards for a while and I often wonder -why would you invest into a country with a weak currency where the company has to run to stand still when you can invest into a country with a strong currency where even if a company’s share price stands still you are still making money on the currency appreciation?

Here are my for want of a better word Pinch Points

447 Aviva

257 Lgen

Any break above hopefully both at same time will see me getting back on board hopefully before results.

In the meantime content to sit on hands

No, the share price does not reflect FY results and outlook as much even as a negative or positive comment about another overseas economy, especially the US. Merely a non growth puppet bobbing up and down like most of the rest of FTSE constituents

I agree the U.K. market in last months is impossible to predict and seems closely linked to the U.K. performance. Completely different to DAX which is near record high and Germany near recession. For me a lot depends on how the FY results perform and outlook. I still believe the share price does not reflect the true value in a lot of FTSE. But clear , I also get frustrated by the random price changes and over selling. GLA

Good that someone has mentioned the gaps.

I thought I was reading the chart wrong.

Anyhoo thought you might be interested in what I see as a reengagement and what to me looks like a meshing last occurring back on the 25/08/2023

At the time Aviva 369.70
Lgen 212.70

Have been very confused these last few weeks as both were out of kilter

I am sure somebody can work out an equation to explain the variance we have been experiencing over the last 6 months

Phoenix I have given up as a basket case will know more in a few weeks when the results start filtering through and more importantly THE DIVIDENDS

Good luck everyone
