Very odd parters if reported trades. Multiple duplications and too many trades per second for this kind of share. Must be a glitch in system of some sort

Trading statement seems average. I guess it depends on what the market is expecting, given the recent weakness, average may be above expectations. Or not.

I've taken up one of their quotes and not another one, but wouldn't like to judge whether the overall level is more or less expensive than other insurers. They all seem to have quite unpredictable quotes that can be low one month and high the next or vice-versa. I think its a dividend share and maybe undervalued at this level looking 6 months - year ahead, but as for being a growth share I doubt it, as you say its usp may well have passed, although I think its the only one solely targeting the sector. Maybe that's a risk, or maybe it means they can still sort out a set of values that gives it a brand identity that will endure.

Just hope nobody got stitched up buying at 200p and above...buying here is like supporting the insiders luxurious lifestyle going...

I think looking at Thomas Cooks profits warning, or the 30-50% drop in the larger UK insurers (AV/SLA etc) then its not surprising to see sentiment poor for this one. I guess the older demographic is less likely to be affected by a downturn given the larger proportion of retired or part time workers. There seem to be a lot of options available for those of us chasing income - 6-7% seem s to be quite easy to obtain, compared to 4-5% a few months back. They can't all be hiding skeletons

I also bailed out a while ago-taken to market at 185 with huge debt its just an insurance company, or is it a cruise company, very confusing but share price performance awful

Bailed out of these at a loss a while back, but I would still be curious to know what effect (if any) that extensive list of equity swaps held by JP Morgan have had on the price. By far the biggest, 22 million odd shares remains outstanding for settlement on 25.02.19

As I have said before this company is listed in a no mans land sector...either the company is split up or a buyer buys the Insurance and flogs the Leisure or vice versa...

Well I don't know the ins and outs of whether they should own their cruise ships or not. I think the key question is whether that profit drop is in the price. Anyone who read the interims in any detail will have picked up that comment on adverse impact in the second half - it appeared a couple of times. It looks very much as if the results themselves looked fine and then the detail was read more carefully which resulted in the selling down from 130p+. Add in a nasty market and hey presto.

I see the Chairmen bought here recently.He must have some sort of handle on the company.They have been known to be wrong though.

That sounds logical. They shouldn’t own their own cruise ships. Why tie up so much capital? All strategically a bit of a mess?

Not so sure its a skeleton as such, but perhaps just a fairly logical consequence of this: "For the second half, the Retail Broking business is expected to be adversely impacted by increases in net rates from our home panel and lower average premiums in the motor market." That's in effect a profit warning for the second half. That could lead to say profits of £150mln down from £190mln and eps of say 10p. p/e of 10 as its not growing + rubbish market etc. = 100p. Also second half was not as strong as first last year in any case.

"...but unless the position has really deteriorated since the end of September update, and even if it has, the P/E ratio is so low..." The market isn't stupid. Whenever I see this kind of share price behaviour it inevitably leads to a big skeleton falling out the cupboard. We saw it with BBY in 2012 who for 2 years were lying about their results and the state of their business, and the same with CLLN who for years were being dishonest with shareholders about their profits, the same with MTO...and the list goes on and on. With all these companies the share price persistently fell, noticeably on strong market days. Since autumn 2016 SAGA's share price has crashed over 50%. This isn't because the shares are being overlooked or offer great value. Something is clearly wrong and the BoD will not be able to remain tight-lipped about it for that much longer.

Yup agree but who knows what the PER us? If profits dip materially then the dividend will be cut or eliminated as the debt begins to weigh. I’m a stale holder but it doesn’t “feel” great. Hope I’m wrong.

I can understand your view given the share price crash but unless the position has really deteriorated since the end of September update, and even if it has, the P/E ratio is so low, the shares would still be undervalued. I’m not saying in the short term this share will recover signifantly, but it will represent good value in the medium to long term particularly if they retain the excellent dividend.

I’m not, I’m feeling very nervous. It’s one of those odd hybrid companies and headwinds seem bad in insurance and travel too. I have an inkling that all is not well here.

Feeling very relaxed with this share. Clearly it’s a medium to long term investment but am confident with a well experienced cfo taking over in January 2019 and 2 new profitable cruise ships being launched in the next 6 months to 2 years, the future looks very bright. Suppose it could fall further in this very febrile atmosphere but keep hold and am sure there will be good rewards in the future.

I don't know what the general volumes are in the market, but I suspect a lot of folk are holding back because of Brexit, which is why there seem to be a lot of shares not recovering from apparent lows, having had attempts at recovery previously. When its all doubt and uncertainty, nobody can see any share in a good light unless the business is outperforming.
