justiceforthemany: Standard Life have increased their position from 2% to 5% as per holdings RNS today. Profits GROWTH of up to 2% this year and a predicted drop of up to 5% next year does not constitute or warrant a 35% drop in share price. IMHO.

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.

justiceforthemany: So here we have a company making almost half a billion pounds of profit annually but now having a market cap of just £1.4Bn (!). Trading on a P/E of just 9.2 and yielding 7.1%. Ridiculous. Come April/May when the final dividend of 6p+ is paid I reckon the share price will be back around 180p. If it isn't taken over of course before then.

riverman77: A potential takeover is tantalising prospect, but I still see too many negatives to consider for the moment. Unfocused company, weak Ceo in my view, unfashionable brand and little prospect of profit growth in near-term. I suspect the strategy next year will be to cut prices in the hope that profits come through further down the line. Until there is evidence of this - at least another year or two - the share price is likely to languish. Might consider if it drops to 120.

srpactive: j I do not follow ceo etc deals as they could be for any reason, probably trying to keep the share price up to keep his options in play, dyor.

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.

yump: Well from memory these sudden drops are called earthquakes and are different from the gradual demise of a share price, in that quite often the drop is recovered quite fast, because the business suffered a one-off shock. Depends on what caused it and here its a combination of things, over which management had little control. Which means they could improve and the Monarch is indeed a one-off. What's a fair rating though ? It is a profit warning though - they were going to grow a bit this year, now they're not. Hopefully not a profit warning as we know it though ie. just the one please.

stewart64: Thanks stevetmade1....will probably lead to a move on the share price one way or the other as the dividend rate is anybody''s guess at the moment. Don't actually think the Market likes being kept in abeyance, most dividends are fixed a long time before this, not really good for the stability of the share price.
