alotto: With a reduced number of energy suppliers, revenue for comparison sites will be (much) lower considering that there are less deals to choose from. Will we see new energy providers getting into business, with the recent history of financial weakness against wholesale energy price volatility? Many investors may be wary to venture in energy provider companies due to risk bound to gas/oil price volatility, unless prices are well hedged. I don't know how feasible is to get a good hedging for smaller companies. Travelling also may be subdued for a good run, just see how governments react to a single individual having a sneeze in a remote corner of the world.
glenowen: Investors Chronicle recommends “Buy” in today’s issue. While referring to short term pressures related to lockdown, it concludes “long-term growth is supported by launch of new services”.
contrarian joe: Group PLC Trading Statement 02/04/2020 7:00am UK Regulatory (RNS & others) (LSE:MONY) Intraday Stock Chart Today : Friday 3 April 2020 TIDMMONY RNS Number : 4898I Group PLC 02 April 2020 THIS ANNOUNCEMENT CONTAINS INSIDE INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSES OF ARTICLE 7 OF EU REGULATION 596/2014 2 April 2020 Q1 2020 & COVID-19 Update Group PLC reports trading results for the quarter ended 31 March 2020 Q1 2020 Q1 2019 Growth GBPm GBPm % Insurance 51.9 48.3 8 Money 24.5 25.3 (3) Home Services 19.5 19.6 (1) Other revenue 11.4 11.7 (2) -------- -------- ------------- Total 107.3 104.9 2 -------- -------- ------------- Diversified business delivered 2% revenue growth in Q1 -- Trading within Insurance was driven by travel and life. Our natural search rankings have improved since Q4 2019 although we continue to see some volatility. -- In Money, during the first part of the quarter credit and banking returned to growth, however during March trading dynamics deteriorated. -- Attractive offers from energy providers and large customer savings meant that Home Services trading was broadly in line with last year's exceptional performance. -- Within Other, TravelSupermarket traded well at the start of the quarter but from mid-February trading weakened significantly from COVID-19. This was partially offset by Decision Tech's growth. Operations The welfare of our colleagues remains paramount as we navigate the uncertainty caused by the pandemic. Our technology platform and secure infrastructure can support employees, including our contact centre team, to work efficiently and safely from home. We plan to remain a flexible and efficient way for our providers to reach customers throughout the crisis. Our comparison services are important to customers in these uncertain times. MoneySavingExpert has seen readership of its news section, which includes the Coronavirus financial guides, increase over 200%. Mark Lewis, CEO of Moneysupermarket Group, said: "Having fully moved to remote working to support the health and safety of the team, we remain as committed as ever to help our customers through this crisis. "As household incomes come under pressure, we continue to offer a broad range of deals for people looking to save. The MoneySavingExpert team continues to publish the most authoritative guides to help people navigate the impact of Coronavirus on their finances. "This situation is continuing to develop but we in turn will continue to do all we can to help our customers at this difficult time." Outlook It is still too early to determine the full impact of the rapidly changing situation. Given the evolving nature of the pandemic and the associated uncertainty and lack of visibility, we are suspending all financial guidance for the financial year 2020. As a marketplace business, we are impacted by changes in consumer demand or provider supply. In Q1 we initially saw strong demand for travel insurance due to consumer concerns over COVID-19 but both TravelSupermarket and travel insurance have materially weakened since the travel ban. Over recent weeks we have seen a slowdown in consumer demand and lower product availability in our Money business. Notably the outlook for loans and mortgages and some of our promotional Money channels has reduced. To date, Insurance and Home Services trading remain relatively resilient. Over the longer-term, the attractive fundamentals of our business and markets are unchanged. Balance sheet and dividend We benefit from being a financially resilient business with diversified revenue streams and strong cash conversion. We have access to a GBP100m committed revolving credit facility, which matures in September 2021, with the ability to apply for a one or two year extension to this facility. As at 31 March 2020, we had net cash of c.GBP30m. Given this strong balance sheet and robust liquidity position, the Board has determined that, despite the challenging macro conditions, the proposed 2019 final dividend amount of 8.61p per share will not jeopardise our ability to continue to invest into the business and support ongoing operations, including our customers and colleagues. The Board therefore proposes to pay the final dividend of 8.61p per share declared with the Group's preliminary results and will keep dividend policy for the rest of the year under review. Notes: Revenues for TravelSupermarket and travel insurance for the 3 months to 30 June 2019 were c.GBP12m GBP100m committed revolving credit facility has the following covenants: EBITDA:net finance charges no less than 4.0x and net debt: adjusted EBITDA no greater than 3.0x Adjusted EBITDA is operating profit adjusted for depreciation, amortisation and other non-underlying costs including strategy related costs For further information, contact: Scilla Grimble Chief Financial Officer / 0207 379 5151 Jo Britten Investor Relations Director / 07896 469 380 William Clutterbuck Maitland AMO / 0207 379 5151 This statement may include statements that are forward looking in nature.

isis: Shocked. Shocked! 91 93 67 Why is Wall Street acting so surprised about high-frequency trading? By Zachary Karabell Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange after the ringing the Opening Bell on April 1, 2014 in New York City. Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange after the ringing the opening bell on April 1, 2014, in New York City. Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images The publication this week of Michael Lewis' new book Flash Boys has led to a heated debate about the role of high-frequency trading in today's global financial markets. The most contentious spark was Lewis' claim on 60 Minutes that the prevalence of such trading means that our markets are "rigged," an accusation that touched a nerve and set off a furious series of discussions in the past few days. Zachary Karabell ZACHARY KARABELL Zachary Karabell is an author, money manager, and commentator. His most recent book is The Leading Indicators: A Short History of the Numbers That Rule Our World. Follow The release of the book also coincided with news that the FBI has been investigating hedge funds that utilize high-frequency trading for possible violations of the law, including market manipulation. The FBI is not alone in its investigations. For at least two years, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission have also been looking into the practices of these funds along with the preferential relationships that they have established with exchanges. For instance, many funds pay the exchanges substantial sums for "direct access" to the data feeds of the exchange and the pricing of stocks, which no individual investor could obtain. The debate about whether these practices are benign or harmful to markets is entirely necessary. Personally, I think that the advantages enjoyed by some high-frequency traders are incompatible with fair and open markets and should be curtailed substantially-perhaps entirely. But there is another danger here that is getting only minimal attention: that regulators, who once again are accused of being slow to respond and insufficiently vigilant, will go to the other extreme and attempt retroactively to criminalize behavior that it was fully aware of and did nothing to prevent until public opinion shifted. As longtime market watcher Barry Ritholtz points out, none of the flurry of revelations has cast light on any dark secrets. The cozy and financially satisfying relationship between funds dedicated to high-frequency transaction and electronic exchanges that can execute trades in milliseconds has been going on for at least the past five years. Lewis documents one company called Spread Networks that reportedly spent $300 million to lay an 825-mile cable between its servers in New Jersey and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in order to obtain data feeds more quickly. There are also numerous examples of certain funds being allowed to locate their servers in the same space as the Nasdaq exchange, among others. Yet as surprising as these revelations are to many, market participants have been aware of them from the get-go. None of what is currently being discussed was a secret to anyone on Wall Street. The reactions are thus tantamount to a cry of being shocked, shocked, that there is gambling in Casablanca. And while the mainstream media can perhaps be excused for making as much of these sensational facts as possible, the same cannot be said of regulators who have had years to address these issues but have not. Prosecutors react as barometers of public opinion, oscillating between complacency and zealotry. Over the past decade-plus, a disturbing pattern has emerged. Financial regulators-starting with the SEC but extending to state attorneys general, the Federal Reserve, and a host of other agencies tasked with oversight-monitor activities and then are accused of complacency when problems erupt. Then, to compensate, they begin to investigate aggressively and bring charges, usually against lower-level employees who make easier targets. The prosecution of Fabrice Tourre, a junior Goldman Sachs executive who was complicit in the packaging of questionable mortgage-backed securities in the lead up to the near-collapse of the financial system in 2008–2009, is a perfect example. The problem is the public need for scalps combined with the retroactive interpretation of law. Yes, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who has launched his own probe of high-speed trading, cautions that some of the behavior may not be strictly illegal even if it should be stopped. But that only underscores that much of what creates public outrage in the financial world is legal. The issue is not that a few rogue individuals break the law, though that of course happens; it's that prosecutors react as barometers of public opinion. They oscillate between complacency and zealotry in a way that may satisfy public bloodlust but does little to make our financial system fairer or to level the playing field. In the case of high-frequency trading, there have been repeated calls on various agencies to take a harder look at the privileges enjoyed by some firms and to issue regulations that prevent the egregious front-running and assorted other techniques that allow a few firms to profit in ways that no individual-or even most institutional investors-can hope to compete with. In fairness, this system evolved only in the past decade, facilitated by the evolution of computerized, information technology–driven trading. The world often changes more rapidly than our regulatory framework, and high-frequency trading is a prime example. We should welcome the current debate and the negative spotlight cast on high-frequency trading. But that doesn't mean that behavior that was previously deemed acceptable should be suddenly criminalized just because the pendulum shifts. The behavior can be unacceptable and be curtailed without the attendant use of state power to prosecute, fine, and potentially incarcerate. Let's end this system of high-frequency trading that makes it possible for a few firms to profit unfairly and at times distort markets, but let's do it in a way that avoids the bread-and-circuses spectacle of hunting for villains. Our regulatory framework in general, whether in finance or any other aspect of life, has become too focused on punishment, often at the expense of meaningful societal reform. Since change and reform are what benefits us all, that is where our energies should go. Trials and scalps may garner media attention and act as proxies for reform, but they are a pallid alternative to the structural changes we actually need.

isis: They say these Algorithm programmes are harmless but they take out stoplosses and confuse and mislead investors - including me!
isis: These Bot algorithm trades do make it difficult for private investors to make decisions, but when you look at the holdings hardly anything has changed. They did this to Premier which has trebled in 3 months as they change tack. Lloyds was/is also a big algorithm stock. Not much you can do about it as it's all legal - you just have to make your own judgement and wait.
