quepassa: Sector News. AFH Financial announces today Recommended Offer at £4.63. Being 40% Premium to 31st Dec price.
dexdringle: Well, that 15 minute 80p drop in the share price at 10:30 was a nice buying opportunity for some people ! What the hell was that all about ?
dexdringle: We still have the issue that cancelling a dividend AFTER the share has gone XD has the effect of retrospectively creating a false market at the XD date. These other companies who have cancelled have done so BEFORE XD date. That is a different thing all together. The fact remains that the price reduced on 17th by 33p to reflect the dividend money leaving the business. Which is normal and exactly that happened (check ADVFN chart for that day). Those buying on that day or after wouldn't qualify for the dividend. And anyone selling on that day or after would still receive the dividend. Therefore anyone who sold after that date has physically lost 33p a share. I can see SJP having to reimburse those people. As far as I know, what SJP have done is unprecedented - unless someone can point me to a previous dividend cancelled AFTER XD case ?
dassera: The original dividend never happened... EPIC Share Price Div Type Dec Date Ex-Div Date Payment Date STJ 851.4p 20p Interim 2 30-Apr-20 07-May-20 27-May-20
dexdringle: The more I think about it the more mental it seems. The price dropped 33p on the opening once ex-div. As you'd expect. But if you sold at the lower price after they went ex-div you would have done so in the knowledge that you would still be entitled to receive the 33p dividend - so the fall in price would be offset by that. What we need is the view of someone who sold ex-div and now realises they wont be getting the dividend (so needed to have sold before ex-div at the higher price). Bizarre!! EDIT I think an additional issue here is that the results set the ex-div date but also said that the dividend was subject to approval at the AGM which is 7th May. So, presumably, that agenda item will be altered. This doesn't work though if the ex-div date is before the AGM date because the company is effectively committed before the AGM happens. Changing the dividend after ex-div date means a false market was created the day after ex-div. Seems odd that none of the press are picking this up ?
niggle: Prudent management cutting the divi. OK not great if you are relying on it but sensible given the circumstances. The Board has decided to withhold 11.22 pence per share, or around one-third of the proposed 2019 final dividend, until such a time as the financial and economic impacts of COVID-19 become clearer. This prudent judgement will ensure we are able to deal with such scenarios and protect clients, the long-term value of the business, and our proven ability to benefit from the growth opportunity that will undoubtedly emerge on the other side of this crisis. As a result, we will pay 20.0 pence per share as a second 2019 interim dividend on 27 May 2020 to those shareholders on the register as at the close of business on 11 May 2020. In addition, the Board confirms that it will be making one dividend decision relating to the 2020 financial year and this will be made in February 2021 at the time of our full-year results.
oapknob1: Increased divi and still plenty of upside to pre CV19 share price What is not to like here. There is a constant flow of retiring public sector workers and emergency service workers retiring, and STJ associate Advisors are given pretty much exclusive access to 999 service pre- retirement courses. A lot of senior and middle management positions invest on the back this on retirement so there is a constant flow of lump sum investors for the foreseeable.
growthpotential: AFH is good but no harm in holding STJ too. People need financial advice and STJ deliver
dexdringle: yes, that's bound to have some sort of effect. Mind you, I can't remember the last time a broker called something right. I have shares in Condor Gold (don't ask). Last year when they were 44p a broker (NUMIS) issued a ‘buy’ note with a price target £1.30. I was holding from 60p and sitting on a 25% loss at that point so I thought 'great'. Condor Gold are now 19p a share…… Re SJP I think we are more likely to see £10 again here than £12. But I think we will see £11 again in the meantime. I also expect a big announcement in early 2020 about a re-positioning of the business, a change to the charging structure (and to the contracts with the franchise advisers) and a free kitten with every policy sold. Okay, maybe not the kitten part.
its the oxman: Seems to me stj do a pretty good job for their clients, ensuring relatively well managed decent returns, despite their charges ,with reassuring client contact and advice. A big grey population out there who perhaps recognise the value in not always going going for the cheapest option.
