justiceforthemany: Not to mention months and months now of a static suppressed share price. Totally UNregulated market by the FCA and played with by the city boys and fund manager fat cats.

andycapp1: Ok. Rating looks okay and cash generation of underlying business continues to support the dividend. I’ve bought it for the leverage the brand offers into an ageing population. Quite like the cruise idea but it’s a v competitive mkt with new entrants. Insurance broking makes sense instead of direct selling - leverages brand again and frees capital. Debt is not onerous. But get sense the business is struggling to meet profit expectations right now hence static share price. But longer term it looks ok and dividend assuming its sustainable, fills the gaps.?

imastu pidgitaswell: Not a particularly informative trading update - very little quantification, no financial numbers, no forecasts, market expectations variances/lack of, etc. No bad things, and share price reacting well enough (from a low base) but just no real information. Are their trading updates always so useless?

nav_mike: stevestallwood http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/saga-SAGA/share-news/SAGA-PLC-Holdings-in-Company/77433125 This RNS seems to suggest they had sold down 1% of their holding in Saga, though half the time with DB its all so wrapped up in financial instruments, its hard to get a clear picture

portside1: The prospects for the Saga (LSE: SAGA) share price seem to be brighter than a few months ago. Back then, the company was experiencing a hugely challenging period which saw it release a profit warning. After making various changes to its personnel and strategy since then, it now seems to be in a strong position to deliver a turnaround. However, it’s not the only stock that could be about to deliver a period of high growth. Reporting on Monday was a company which could be worth a closer look because of its strong earnings growth potential. Impressive performance

ll0ydy: Share price positive today, no one here? Share price collapse because of Monach going bust, over sold by the city as always. Good entry point for people with a ounce of patience.

mj19: Saga share price subdued as RBC abandons bullish stance on groupAnalysts now less positive on the company's motor broking business Tsveta Zikolovaby Tsveta ZikolovaTuesday, 19 Dec 2017, 13:16 GMTSaga share price subdued as RBC abandons bullish stance on group Shares in Saga (LON:SAGA) have slipped marginally into the red, underperforming the broader market, as RBC Capital Markets lowered its stance on the cruises-to-insurance group for the over-50s. The move followed the mid-cap company's profit warning earlier this month.As of 12:54 GMT, Saga's share price had lost 0.16 percent to 125.20p, underperforming the FTSE 250 which has climbed into positive territory and currently stands 0.52 percent higher at 20,360.23 points. The group's shares have given up more than 34 percent of their value over the past year, as compared with a more than 14-percent gain in the mid-cap index.RBC lowers stance on SagaRBC Capital Markets lowered its stance on Saga from 'outperform' to 'sector perform' today, slashing its price target on the shares from 250p to 135p, noting that it was now less positive on the lifestyle group's motor broking business."Our previous buy case was centred on footprint expansion and margin improvement in the broking segment, which we now do not expect Saga to achieve in the near term," the analysts explained, as quoted by WebFG News. "Further, the pricing structure of the broking business is less attractive than we previously thought."The analysts further explained that the lifestyle group's retail business operates on a spread basis so its revenue was affected by pricing from its underwriting panel, and external competitive pricing pressures, while its peers' revenue "is more resilient as it is based on a percentage of premiums or fixed fee, so there is less need to sacrifice revenue for volume".The analysts nevertheless noted that the longer-term opportunity for Saga was positive as the UK has an ageing demographic.Other analysts on SagaThe nine analysts offering 12-month price targets for Saga for the Financial Times have a median target of 180.00p on the shares, with a high estimate of 250.00p and a low estimate of 135.00p. As of December 16, the consensus forecast amongst nine polled investment analysts covering the blue-chip group has it that the company will outperform the market. As of 13:19 GMT, Tuesday, 19 December, Saga PLC share price is 124.40p.

stephen2010: ALBA currently trading at 0.39p target price 6p making a nice 15 bagger. Please read the following: MARKET CAP PUZZLE ❖ Alba (market cap £8.4m) is in a resources neighbourhood populated with listed companies with much enhanced market capitalisations, such as UKOG.L (£134m) and JAY.L (£172m). With either shared project interests or adjacent tenements to these companies, Alba should trade at a much higher valuation than its current token value. Like Bluejay, Alba owns 100% of its ilmenite project. Direct comparisons with UKOG are also instructive. While both companies own other projects, UKOG’s 49.9% of Horse Hill Developments Limited (HHDL), when compared to Alba’s 18.1% means that Alba has approximately one third of the value of Horse Hill compared to UKOG but only about 7% of the market capitalisation. Once the market recognises these disparities, the room for growth in Alba’s share price is undeniable. VALUATION RATIONALE - Our valuation in this First Equity Limited initiation note uses a risked valuation approach for Alba’s two main projects, at Horse Hill and TBS. The Horse Hill licences are valued using independent published technical data from Schlumberger, Xodus and Nutech on the oil potential of the licences, along with our own assumptions on recovery rates, oil discovery value, resource and development risks factors. From this a risked value of $127m net to Alba on a ‘Base Case’ basis is derived for Horse Hill. Given the similar geology and economic potential of both TBS and Dundas, we have adopted a risked closeology valuation approach, by computing an NPV for Dundas of $223m and then applying a three-tiered risked probability calculation to arrive at a value of $54.7m for TBS. Once Alba announce its JORC resource and exploration target at TBS and Bluejay its Feasibility Study results, this number is likely to be revised upwards very rapidly, possibly up to $200m, representing up to 7p per share in additional shareholder value. We compute a valuation of $185m (£139m) for Alba, equating to 6.0p per share, of which 4.1p is attributed to the stake in Horse Hill, 1.8p for TBS. Given this analysis and wealth of valuation catalysts anticipated across the project portfolio in the coming months, we recommend the shares as a ‘BUY, with a Target Price of 6.0p, representing a potential 15 times plus uplift from the current share price.

speedsgh: Saga profit warnings highlights struggles, says Hargreaves - HTTP://citywire.co.uk/money/the-expert-view-saga-legal-and-general-and-hammerson/a1075640#i=2 A profit warning from over-50s group Saga (SAGA) saw the share price drop and Hargreaves Lansdown warns that throwing money at the situation may not be the best solution. Saga announced it expected full year growth in underlying profit before tax to be just 1-2% compared to the 5.5% it achieved last year as it takes a hit on its insurance broking business and feels the impact of the collapse of Monarch Airlines on tour operating. The shares slumped 22.8% to 140p yesterday on the news. ‘The collapse of Monarch Airlines and industry-wide headwinds in home insurance are outside Saga’s control,’ said analyst Nicholas Hyett. ‘But lower reserve releases and a rapid decline in benefits from the introduction of the motor broker panel shouldn’t be coming as a surprise to management.’ He said the fact the company ‘feels the need to throw more cash at customer acquisition is also less than reassuring’. ‘Saga’s pitch was always that its huge mailing list means all the clients it could ever want are just a mail drop away, the extra spending suggests it might not be as clean cut as that,’ said Hyett.
