Irrespective of Santa, if markets don't tank and being LGEN down via its high beta then given underlying business performance/confidence would expect share price to drift up, albeit with usual volatility irrespective of Santa

Or in other words a share price of c350-400 - which is where most or the broker/analyst target share price are

Just a shame that we've got low share prices/high cost of equity As both LGEN and PHNX should (with a higher sp) be raising equity to take advantage of a once in generation opportunity over next few years Failing that, would make sense to set up third party funds to buy annuities into; but suspect that's not simple from a regulatory perspective Seems that the buy out market is mainly limited by capacity Still capacity limits ought to boost return spreads

Why the almost identical fall in AVIVA and LGEN share price by about 2% just after 2.00pm today? The presentation today as listed above showed no change from LGE's forward looking comment with the recently announced figures...just a sector issue and both will bounce back later? Looking at the release of the video briefing and timing at 1.50pm it appears that this triggered some adverse reaction which also hit AVIVA as well, however, looks overdone and see the share price is improving albeit slowly.

Interesting article Cox, thanks .. Tracking LGEN hoping for a lower price top up in the coming months. The recession is yet to fully fledge and future bad news on GDP and job losses will impact the complete market. During this turmoil I expect LGEN to keep the 8% + divi rolling in . It’s a boring share price but a perfect play for income focussed Isa investor. All my funds are wrapped in ISA so don’t expect any tax effect from autumn budget. GLA

Diverse Income: L&G yield even more attractive

Diverse Income (DIVI) manager Gervais Williams says insurer Legal & General (LGEN) has become more attractive as it maintains that recent market turmoil has not affected its dividend prospects. L&G was forced to issue a trading statement to reassure the market over its pension fund-related liabilities after coming under pressure from rising interest rates and soaring gilt yields following the mini-Budget last month.

Citywire A-rated Williams holds L&G in his investment trust, making up 1.5% of the £325m portfolio. ‘During September, government Budget proposals unsettled UK bond valuations, and the share prices of companies with large pension fund liabilities declined – such as L&G. Interestingly, despite the share price instability, companies like L&G have highlighted that they don’t think the market turmoil has impeded their dividend prospects. If this is correct, then as the share prices of these types of companies paying an income…decline, they become even more attractive as the yield increases for new buyers.’ said Williams

Shares in L&G rose 1.2% to close at 235p on Tuesday, having recovered most ground lost since the mini-Budget.

LGEN has not felt it necessary to make any statement on current events so can we assume the impact if any has not been material? Yet? I confess to not fully understanding the crisis of LDI margin calls, impelled I think by an especially sharp rise in gilt yields yesterday morning. This was a test of available liquid cash to cover positions rather than a dent to profitability or prospects?

A spike caused by alarming unfounded speculation that the BoE was about to make an emergency interest rate increase to counter the boost to core inflation from the mini-budget? Countered to some extent by the BoE stepping in with a huge bond purchase programme. And a statement that we will get the next interest rate rise in November as per the predictable schedule.

It is not absolute high yield causing the problem it is the rapid relative step up by about 1% in just a week which has been catching everyone out, including mortgage lenders?

I'm sure this will all settle down again and agree that this represents a super buying opportunity for LGEN investors. As ever it is hard to call the bottom so that was good advice to add in tranches eg when it looks a certain bargain eg now and add again if the share price slips significantly lower.

Regrettably this is the wrong time of year for me to be sat in loads of cash waiting to invest, the small war chest available is earmarked for near-term income prospects and the big pay day on LGEN is over 6 months ahead.

Could someone with the charting and board skills here post the correlation between LGEN share price or yield and UK 10-year gilts? The new PM, chancellor and BoE need to get the same script and say something reassuring.

The market continues to push the LGEN share price back to 250p range. This is a no brainer for me and I know where my divi is going to be reinvested next month. Great play for income focussed investors with great long term divi security GLA
