stewart64: Huge ex dividend day tomorrow across the FTSE of which Legal and General's four percent is one of the biggest. Very interesting to see the degree of share price fall, unless we get some really good news to counter it.
jfishy55: gbh2, most of the recent RNS' seem to be going <3% declarations...yet the share price rose in that time! Not sure what to make of that. I'm looking for the price to reach just under 250 before getting in...or maybe I'll wait for the results...I'm still undecided. 113mike, it is the dividend income that is attracting me as well. I just need to be happy that the yield can be maintained (or slightly increased as per the last 5+ years) going forward.
mj19: Legal & General(LSE: LGEN) too -- share price slump after the vote, and a quick update from the company. Legal & General wasn't quite so unequivocal, but told us it had been prepared based on a 50-50 probability of a leave vote, and had reduced its balance sheet risk accordingly -- and its forward-looking scenario was reassuring.We still had a share price crash and another great buying opportunity, and as I write the shares are still actually 11% down on their pre-vote price at 210p.We're looking here at prospective P/E multiples of under 10 for this year and next, with predicted dividend yields of around the 7% mark. Those payments wouldn't be quite as well covered as Aviva's, but they still look comfortable enough to me.And we've since had interim results from Legal & General, telling us of a 22% rise in pre-tax profit, a 24% boost to earnings per share, cash generation up 16%, and solvency measures looking very strong. Chief executive Nigel Wilson reckoned that the firm's long-term growth drivers "remain unaffected and will continue to provide many growth opportunities."We long-term investors really should be making lemonade while the City institutions can do no more than suck on lemons.
mj19: Legal & General Group Plc 38% Potential Upside Indicated by RBC Capital MarketsPosted by: Amilia Stone 4th October 2016Legal & General Group Plc using EPIC/TICKER code LON:LGEN has had its stock rating noted as 'Reiterates' with the recommendation being set at 'OUTPERFORM' today by analysts at RBC Capital Markets. Legal & General Group Plc are listed in the Financials sector within UK Main Market. RBC Capital Markets have set a target price of 300 GBX on its stock.

Over the last 30 and 90 trading days the company share price has increased 1.8 points and increased 45.2 points respectively.
woodhawk: RKJones, due to the current share price, the dividend is well above the index average - that's why I'm buying. I think dividends will be an increasingly attractive source of income as interest rates remain low or decline - which is why I am investing now. Several of my friends, who are 'savers', are switching from cash savings accounts to share buying for this very reason. I'm sure the migration will increase.
rkjones: A big attraction of this share is its dividend yield which reduces as the share price rises. Whilst the company has merit in its own right, this factor will be a drag on the share price unless, of course, the dividend increases.

badwood: L&G share price may look tempting now that it is at a low for the year but be extremely careful investing in financial stocks when there is so much uncertainty in the global economy. For the last few months some economists have been warning of another financial crash. No one knows if there will be a crash but clearly the risk has hardened with Brexit. In the 2008 financial crisis L&G shares were decimated. On 9th March 2009 L&G shares closed at 23 pence. Today's closing price of 167 pence may seem like a bargain when compared to the price of 260p at the start of the year but don't get sucked into the belief that the share price is over reacting to events. Weigh up all the risks before splashing the cash on L&G. If you are tempted make sure you have a stop-loss order in place. As for me I will stay on the sidelines as it is too early to predict how the global economy will pan out given all the uncertainties. Good luck.
mj19: Increased appeal Shares in Legal & General (LSE: LGEN) have also risen sharply today. The diversified financial services company has soared by 9%, but this still leaves it trading on a low valuation. In fact, Legal & General’s yield of 8% indicates that its shares are dirt cheap. Certainly, such a yield is exceptionally high, but its dividend is expected to be covered 1.4 times by profit this year. This indicates that a dividend cut is unlikely and this could increase Legal & General appeal, in what is likely to remain a low interest rate environment. Legal & General’s track record of earnings growth marks it out as a somewhat more stable financial services play than a number of its peers. It has recorded double-digit bottom line growth in each of the last four years. Despite there being no certainty that this will continue, Legal & General appears to be financially sound and in possession of a logical strategy through which to grow its top and bottom lines in the long run. Similarly, Neil Woodford favourite Legal & General Group (LSE: LGEN) has also seen its share price suffer this year, falling from 260p to around 235p. At the current price of 235p, Legal & General is yielding 5.5%. With such a high yield, there may be some scepticism as to whether this yield is sustainable, however the general consensus in the square mile is that Legal & General will actually boost its dividend payout from 13p per share in FY2015 to 14p in FY2016. A 14p per share payout would lift the bulk annuity specialist’s yield to a huge 6% – around 1.5 times the average FTSE 100 yield and a dream yield for income hunters.
speedsgh: No need to be disappointed. The muted response by the LGEN share price following the bounce in the wider market today would probably suggest that you will be able to pick some up under 200p on the next leg down in the market. LGEN likely still in falling knife mode. Aimho.
