Well if it there was any real truth of 600p it wouldn't be 450p now. However, I'm happy to stay in as I have nothing else I want to put the money on and I think it's worth 450 regardless and I ain't going to sell on a Friday with 2 more days for the rumour mill to wind itself up over the weekend
Lets all get excited...Daily Express reports...TALK of a 600p-a-share takeover bid by an overseas predator boosted RSA Insurance 9¼p to 449½p.
Bid speculation
rumpy pumpy
Rising premiums
What is going on?
08 Sep 2014 Hester, Stephen CEO Buy 21,500 £4.66 £100,276.00 I am sure the CEO who bought at £4.66 is hanging on for a profit. Therefore I will follow on the coattails in the know.
With this last fast rise coming from below 400 it does look as though interest is developing in RSA
Bargain territory.
God forbid that failure should be punished!
case being appealed by the company
iris c eo of r s a gets over one million in compensation for wrongful dismissal
tell that to the share price ..
Stock very strong over last 2 days whilst both the sector and FTSE falling. Not really sure I understand. If it were improving bond yields then the peer group would be going with it.
It seems as though the market is waiting for a catalyst to push RSA’s share price higher. After all, investors have not had much to shout about in recent months, with it making a loss last year and seeing support for its senior management remuneration plans take a hit. As such, shares in RSA have fallen by 1% this year against a FTSE 100 which is already up 7%. However, RSA is forecast to return to profitability this year and then grow its bottom line by 8% next year. That’s an impressive rate of growth and means that RSA’s current P/E ratio of 13.9 is tough to justify – especially when the FTSE 100 has a P/E ratio of 16 and offers growth in the mid to high single digits. As such, an increase in RSA’s P/E ratio to 16.7 seems very achievable – especially when its turnaround plan is still in its infancy and, as many of its insurance peers have shown, double-digit growth rates are a very real goal.
By Rupert Hargreaves - Drastic measures: RSA’s turnaround is being orchestrated by Stephen Hester, who had the unenviable job of trying to rebuild RBS after the financial crisis. Hester has been praised by some of RSA’s top investors for his work turning around the company. Since he took over, assets have been sold, and RSA’s balance sheet has been strengthened. The group is set to report its first full-year profit for two years this year. The company is currently trading at a forward P/E of 14.3. Earnings growth of 8% is expected this year. RSA is trading at a 2016 P/E of 12.6.
RSA Insurance Group has completed the sale of its China-based business, Sun Alliance Insurance, as it continues to focus on its core markets and "clean up its past weaknesses". RSA has sold the insurer to Swiss Re Corporate Solutions for £71m, a transaction which is expected to boost the British firm’s tangible net assets by £26m. RSA's China division, which accounted for £14m of net premiums in the RSA group’s 2013 financial statements, underwrites both commercial and personal insurance risks. The group is continuing to sell businesses in regions across Asia and Europe as it focuses on its core assets in the UK, Ireland, Scandinavia, Canada and Latin America. Chief executive, Stephen Hester, said cleaning up the company’s past weaknesses had been tough due to the expense and a difficult market climate.
By Peter Stephens - Although the pay of its senior management has dominated headlines in recent weeks, RSA is making excellent progress in its turnaround plan. Certainly, last year’s loss was a setback, but RSA is forecast to return to profitability this year, with pretax profit expected to come in at £444m in the current year, which is only fractionally behind 2012’s figure of £448m. Back then, RSA was paying out around 83% of profit as a dividend and, while that level of payout is unlikely to be reached again even in the long run as the company seeks to reinvest in its own growth potential, this year’s expected payout ratio of 43% seems rather low. As such, RSA’s dividend yield is likely to rise from its current 3.2% level, while its shares also have capital gain potential due to their P/E ratio of just 13.8.
RSA's new chief, Stephen Hester, has done all that could be expected of him to right the ship since he came on board. He strengthened the balance sheet through a rights issue and cut costs while sharpening the underwriting arm. But falling interest rates took the wind out of the sails at just the wrong moment. They will lower income from the investment book to £380m versus £439m last year. Low yields also push investors towards insurance products, in turn weighing on premiums. The result is that earnings per share in 2016 are now expected by analysts to come in at 32p instead of the 56p they were forecasting when Hester was just arrived. Lower profits also means there will be less capital to fund the sort of dividends which investors used to enjoy. Between 2010 and 2014 the stock yielded over 6% whereas next year it is expected to provide only 3.5%. The recent rise in bond yields may prove helpful but probably not for long, says the Financial Times's Lex column.
