As the half-year results season gets underway, we're reassured to see many of our Income Boosters declaring dividends as usual. This week we're looking at the latest news from two more portfolio stocks including Moneysupermarket, both of which we think should continue to offer reliable payouts. Https://
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”.
Decent results today, market likes it. Dividend held, cash flowing.
made a bit of money on this back in 2017, currently struggling to find decent places to put my money but MONY has appeared on my radar again. Just noticed that the share price today is pretty much identical to what I paid back in 2017!
Surely this is way undervalued
Income Booster stocks Telecom Plus and Moneysupermarket are suffering a COVID-related slowdown, but we think the longer-term outlook is good for shareholders. New commentary here hxxps://
Mony is one of the few companies with the resources and cash flow to be able to commit to a final dividend. Read our full daily coronavirus company update here hxxps://

12:20 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.

Diversified revenue streams, strong cash conversion and net cash of £30m at 31 March means the group is able to commit to the final dividend of 8.6p per share, which will cost £46m and equates to a yield of 2.93% at the current share price of 293p.

Hurray - gonna get a dividend. Suet
Barclay's raises mony to overweight. Suet
I agree - this should do better than many other shares. Peeps still need to buy energy and insurance and now will have plenty of time to do it! Suet
Mentioned in this weeks Shares magazine, as a stock to buy now. Basis being its taken a hit from the Corona virus scare unfairly, as its business has no connection with it other than the whole market being dragged down. Points out that MONY reported a well received update before earlier in year before market volatility, so has potential to recover with time.
Always happy to buy a reverse cat
Mark Lewis’ rather abrupt decision to step down as chief executive of sparked flutters of unease on the day before the release of 2019 financial results. No need to panic. Read our full analysis here hxxps://

Can't understand why this has had such a poor performance recently against the ebullient market elsewhere. The last results were good. Must be an even better bargain now.
Disagree, people will always be switching, it's a secular growth story
nice rally today
