betfred be careful what you wish for !24 May 2020 10:43
the worst thing that can happen here is a lowball bid from betfred or anyone else. yes you would make money but we would miss out on a lot more upside over the next 2-3 years. imho this stock will be £2 by xmas and £3+ by xmas 2022. you do not get many chances like this in a top 250 stock grab it while you can.
hi i just wanted to make a comment about negative posters on BB whenever i get interested in a sector part of my research includes reading others comments as i like to get a feeling for the sentiment in a stock. about 5 weeks ago i decided i wanted some exposure in the insurance sector and narrowed it down to av and dlg after reading this BB i decided that although the sp was very attractive the sentiment was awful so i invested in dlg so it just goes to show negativity can have an influence. i also was tempted by bt but for the same reason backed away.
well i think the hmg was between a rock and a hardplace the virus was here and we did not have the hospital facilities or the testing capacity to control the situation so they just tried to follow other countries examples . ie shutdown after all the first job of a govt is to protect its citizens . the call of the pra was not aimed at companies like DLG but it just did a blanket hit on all banks & insurance companies so as to cover every angle . DLG wil be swimming in cash by the end of the Q2 and imo restart the divi with hmg blessing . so dont worry about your divi you will get it and possibly a special one at the end of year as well.
think you are right about divi they were only keeping pra happy when they with held the divi and with this shutdown profits will be considerably higher so am confident that we will receive some kind of divi before year end inho
i saw the share prophets podcast at the weekend and bought in this morning having never heard of this stock before. tw has also bought in and he will be putting a lot of news out on this in the coming weeks/months so expect a lot more exposure/investors .
alto i think you are being too pessimistic i bought back into wmh for the same reasons as crystalball highlights. however i do agree that the market is in a mess and could fall further. however wmh is already in a takeover position which would command a increase on the current sp and the divi is very unlikely to be cut. this gives me confidence.
another stock i hold has a factory in china and has reported that it remained closed for 4 weeks after the chinese holiday but has now reopened and is back in production but not yet at full capacity due to travel restrictions.
just wanted to congratulate all the LTH investors in this stock . some of you waited a long time to succeed but you have been proved correct and the troll WALKING BOSS has been outed as a total idiot well done people dyor.
velo have just read your post quickly once so am i right in saying that you believe that having got Q1 AND Q2 wrong they are just edging there bets and upping the full year forecast to 2b in the small print to make it look like they are right overall.
