Reasons for weakness by Greyinvestor

  Tue, 19 Sep 2017 12:40:00 GMT
In my view the recent share price weakness is due to market hopes for an exceptional divi, which was not offered, in my view correctly.

Also AV. is somewhat dependent upon a highish stock market.

Most of the recent upwave in the FTSE has been due to the Chinese demand for raw materials, plus people chasing growth stocks. Value has been a bit out of favour.

I hope that value gets much more depressed. Then I can buy some decent stock for a reasonable price.

My only reservation about Av. is that the NTA number isn't rising. I would like it to be, showing that reserves are being built up.

Aviva is somewhat dependent upon a highish stock market.

Miners and oils are dependent upon China/world demand.

The FTSE is dependent upon the market staying high.

Take your pick....

But in my view, AV. offers a well covered, reasonably stable, and rising income.

I hate trackers at the top of a market - they are guaranteed to follow it down when it blows.

But this is just my opinion....

Many thanks for all who contributed.

Would the conclusion be that AVIVA share price is unlikely to rise by more than say 10%.?
Because the FTSE average is about 4% anyway why not buy a tracker instead to give you safety in numbers to avoid the 1-stock risk like what happened with BT, Lloyds, Provident-Financial, Capita, etc..
Even Woodford Income funds are struggling due to focus on specific stock theme.

Alternatively. is there a chance of AVIVA being taken over or merging with others? or unlikely due to the regulatory environment.
Kind regards,
QHSS

Sorry, only just noticed your posting. I've commented on LRE on that board.

In my view all of the specialist non life insurers are overvalued. I wouldn't buy now. I should have bought back into RQIH, but it's been a bumpy ride.

The above will take a belting from the hurricane season, and should be cheaper in the spring. But I've held onto my BEZ to avoid paying a ton of CGT.

I don't like L&G, I think buying up extra annuity business is a bit risky.

I do like AV. best, but it's a complex beast and some people think it's running too lean ie it has too little capital. However I do have a big holding and am tempted to add to it. The share price is double NTA, which is quite rich.

I'm struggling to buy anything decent these days. My latest purchases have been WPP and RDW; the latter could be viewed as a risky buy.

I wonder if the recent weakness is due to the storm activity in the US? I didn't think Aviva was too heavily exposed to Catastrophe insurance or reinsurance though, but I could be wrong!

On a similar subject, a question for Greyinvestor, I have been out of Catastrophe insurers since my Catlin shares were bought out. It seems like this could be an expensive storm season, premiums might finally bounce back. Do you think this is the time to get back into these insurers? What are your current picks?

Ditto yesterday - but moved too soon at 517p! Doh!

Divi here looks much better covered than LGEN's (which I hold as well).

Topped up again today. They've had a slightly rough ride recently, but are good value in my opinion.

Good Day for top-up by Phillip Reid

  Tue, 29 Aug 2017 20:36:00 GMT
Thanks to Kim,

Topped up today at 514.2 and trebled my holding - Let's hope it all settles down now. I can't see anything else to drive the SP lower, but one never knows for sure.

Dumb question by richard599

If Aviva buys back its own shares (see news item today), do they pay stamp duty on them?

Fine with me if the share price doesn't go up anytime soon, I want as many shares as possible from my dividend reinvestment, maximise the power of compounding!
