erogenous jones: Boraki, don't worry about it. The company has announced new strategy which has yet to translate into improvement to balance sheet/margins/new business etc and, to be frank it will not start to be evidenced for another 4 months. Once strategy starts to show discernible improvement, then this will present in the figures. The share price might pre-empt this improvement, but at the moment, I suspect there is an overhang that needs to be cleared and the price is being adjusted in small amounts to encourage buyers to dip into their pockets. 'fraid it is a wait and see period - sometimes the wait is a very long time and that is when the share price forms a deep bowl shape in its chart. Perhaps look at something that is rather less exciting such as DS Smith. They make cardboard boxes for the likes of Amazon. Very dull company indeed.
boraki: HTTPS:// Approx £40000
erogenous jones: justiceforthemany - absolute cobblers that the funds and big banks know more than private investors. There are very strict rules regarding information disclosure and the penalties severe. What is perhaps noteworthy is what scant basic research is undertaken by private investors and how easily confused they are when it comes to attributing a valuation for a company. Many, for instance, believe that it is easier for a penny share company to double its market value than it is for a blue chip. News is the catalyst and trading pressure reacts to changed information. The element which is least favorable to me with Saga at the moment are the number of companies that survive following a substantial collapse in the share price
boraki: HTTPS:// Directors buying, albeit small amounts
careful: Share price meaningless at this stage. Impossible to value. Long term prospects difficult to estimate. Everyone assuming the worst. What are Blackrock up to? I find it reassuring that the World's largest money manager is adding here. How can they pick up 5% of this company without driving the share price up? Dark pools?
boraki: HTTPS:// Blackrock hold 5% now
da vinci1: The very well remunerated BOD have somehow contrived to lose three-quarters of Saga's peak share price in a short span of time. And from them we are euphemistically told that Saga faces '...Long-Term challenges..' why don't they just say it like it is? Such as ABANDON SHIP!!!
erogenous jones: imagining, you joined ADVFN in December last year and from your caustic remarks you rather imply that this is a company that to all intents and purposes should be wound up. Let's start by looking at what I believe is the principle reason for the drop in the share price. Saga has been in business of selling insurance for roughly 80 years. Its core market are those aged over 50. The strategy of using 3rd party sites to grow their customer base is to cease as they seek to attract customers directly. There is a cost associated with that change and is reflected in the accounts. Cutting the dividend was pretty sensible and does not mean that the company is going bust. In eliminating leads generated by comparison sites the company will lose turnover, but this will be negated by the commissions payable. Upgrading ships for the travel side of things will benefit the company for many years into the future. Investment of such size shows a confidence that the business is preparing for the next 15 years or whatever the expected life of a cruise ship is concerned between re-fits.
thecroots: Hi Careful, Not sure if i was clear enough. It wasn't a dig at SAGA, (I recently bought in at 72P) it was a mere comment regarding peoples reactions to share price movements! I agree, whilst the shares are battered, (and luckily I'm only recently in from Thursday) i do think they could be a decent long term recovery play. We shall see.
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.
