kenmitch: There has never been anything like this before so none of us, (and that probably includes LGEN Directors) know how it will all pan out for LGEN. And that applies to so many Companies. Just look at what Next were saying this time last week and how a week later they have closed online too. It’s very fast moving and unpredictable and that applies to the LGEN share price too. I hold a reduced stake as once this is over LGEN could again be a superb recovery share. But at what price will it bottom? Guesswork.
pierre oreilly: Buy, I'm all for free thinkers, but i feel you must be about the only one to think lgen's share price isn't due to covid. Mind you, I agree with you too - I don't think the halved value of most quoted companies is to do with the virus - my view is they have crashed due to the measure being taken to try to contain it, not the virus itself.
fenners66: Pierre "In other words, I'm saying that the cure is worse than the disease, imo." I do acknowledge your point that the economic pain may cause (down the line) some more deaths. But 1, the govt is seeking to mitigate that. 2, it would only contribute rather than have a direct cause However if we did not take the medicine of isolation the number of cases (which are already rising exponentially ) would rapidly get completely out of control. You have considered a number of CV19 deaths - but what if every delivery driver got it and then recovered 3 weeks later? How many would die without vital deliveries ? How many would die in the riots and social unrest ? How many would die if the army were brought in to control looters....etc. The hospitals have cancelled non-emergency operations going forward already. They expect a Tsunami of CV cases - even with the lockdown measures. Without these measures the knock on would be other emergency patients would die with no where to treat them. Better informed , more talented people with working models , than us have already decided the best course of action is to delay CV and give the NHS the best chance. Buyandold. There is Nothing impacting the share price right now more than CV 19. Thus it remains relevant.
buyandold: To all you naysayers... I refer you to my previous posts, salient points being: 1) I worked for LGEN for 30+ years, 15 as a senior nanager so know it well. 2) C-19 deaths are unlikely to have material impact because LGEN is not a market leader in life cover for over 50's. Also most applicants with underlying health issues would be weeded out at underwriting stage. So LGEN should have relatively low exposure to C-19 related deaths. 3) Older people dying should be positive for the annuity and defined benefit pension buy-out book, which is massive. 4) As a holder of 5%+ of UK Plc there's a gearing effect... LGEN's share price should be expected to react more pronounced to market movements... down and up! 5) LGEN is very strong financially and is unlikely to become a forced seller of equities to maintain financial strength requirements. These measures require equities to be stress tested assuming lower valuations, so £1 invested in bonds is deemed to be 'worth' more than £1 in equities, but because equities are the driver of growth you actually need to stack equities as high as possible. 6) LGEN is a well managed company with market leading positions in its target areas, and us building a growing investment management business in the USA and globally. 7) The company's progressive dividend policy should maintain demand from income seekers. In summary... if you're an investor in equities LGEN should be a core holding.
erogenous jones: Well, listening to the Prime Minister today, I feel that he is preparing the country to expect this contagion to last until at least July and quite possibly into September. So quite possible that the share price falls towards previous lows. I wouldn't mind a little breather from time to time as it is not a lot of joy watching the equivalent of another years salary wiped off one's portfolio.
tomleafs: p0pper as an investor in both LGEN and ADM I'll give it a shot, apologies but this is a bit of a rambling stream of thoughts. Very good recent results from ADM with profit up 10% and dividend up 11%. Car insurance is a business in which releases are made from prior years which gives some future visibility of profits and revenue. The company basically has no debt. You also have the impact of Corona stopping people driving as much this year so it may be a very good year for Admiral in terms of lack of claims. You also have the fact that ADM actually increased their dividend during the GFC of 2008/09 whereas LGEN cut theirs slightly. You can also see the share price of ADM being resilient during the GFC as well, whereas LGEN got hammered down to 30p. ATB
p0pper: Not knowing anything about Admiral, I wonder what they have that we haven't as their share price seems a lot more stable and has a lot more good days, anyone know?
damanko: EJ - we are of a similar age. What a great deal of fun you must have enjoyed in Aden in that era, when I came back to England, none of my new schoolfriends believed a word of what I told them I'd experienced in Aden. So I wrote them off... Murder Mile? Of course, but how on earth would these children have believed me...? And as for dad driving me through Crater with the windows up and the doors locked, probably best not to start me there... Anyway, moving on: L&G are (in share price terms) back to where they were 20 years ago. All of us on this thread should perhaps pause for a moment and think about that. 2 decades of no price improvement. Thank the lord I have always reinvested dividends, but even so - this is brutal. I'll see what things look like in a year from now. I'm a little like that... damanko
dr biotech: Doing the latter may help as well :-) If you buy a share before the XD date then you get the dividend, but then on the XD date itself the share price will typically drop by the dividend amount. The shares are then shown to be "xd" (typically you now only see this if you look at prices in the newspaper though some websites do show it). It remains "xd" until the day it is paid. I guess this was quite useful in preinternet days when this info would have been more difficult to find. Just as a casual observation some companies pay dividends a few days after XD dates, with some others its weeks.
bogdan branislov: How unusual it is to see a FTSE 100 opportunity like LGEN after such a lengthy albeit gradual bull market - technically the bull market briefly broke a couple of times but this has been a very long bull phase. PE around 10, growth around 10%, divi c5%, divi well covered and most important of all, the divi cover goes straight through into very solid tangible balance sheet equity growth year after year. A fair value for LGEN right now would be almost twice the current share price, what is going on? One could argue that given the size of LGEN, the current rate of earnings growth will be difficult to sustain, but even if earnings growth fell to nearer 5% to 6% in 3 or 4 years time, this would have little impact on the rate of balance sheet equity growth which is the most important growth metric. I have held LGEN for about a year now, generally I ignore the FTSE 100 and focus on mid and larger small caps as that is usually where value is more often found. But the numbers for LGEN kept jumping out at me, for a while I kept thinking that I must be missing something, eventually I realised that this was a rare FTSE 100 opportunity to buy high quality growth at a very low price.
