L&G well placed for long-term growth
Insurer Legal & General (LGEN) is differentiating itself from its peers and has the ability to take more market share and deliver long-term growth.

Berenberg analyst Matthew Preston retained his ‘buy’ recommendation and increased his target price from 290p to 310p following first-half results. Shares in Legal & General were trading at 275.4p yesterday, up 4.6% since the results were announced on Wednesday.

‘In our L&G’s H1 2015 results reaffirmed our belief that the company is well positioned when it comes to taking market share and delivering longer-term growth,’ he said.

‘In our view, L&G’s business model is becoming increasingly differentiated to its home market peers. A continued focus on risk products, including innovative asset strategies to back such products, is continuing to pay dividends. At the same time, while competing in savings, the adoption of a low-cost scale approach appears to be well suited to the changing market dynamics.’

17:18 05/08/2015 Excellent company
Very good results considering all the annuity and pension changes and to increase the div by 19% sends a very positive signal. I wish that my pension increased by the same amount. It seems to be leaving Standard Life in its wake. By tejo
16:44 05/08/2015 should get some broker upgrades
L&G has done well considering the unknown ,i.e. change in pensions etc.
This should now go on forward smoothly.Its been slowly drifting down of late.

If you could push off ( or words to that effect ) and go and spam another website somewhere else, that'd be ace.

Hopefully you'll be banned, sooner, rather than later

Looks to me as if LGEN is shadowing the FTSE at the moment, continuing the trend since the end of April. I would expect that the continue for a while in the absence of any Company specific news.

Think its just following the "greek' decline that is infecting all stocks at the moment. Financials taking a bigger hit.

I think all my stocks are down - wish I;d followed the adage and sold in May!!!!!

15:07 17/06/2015 Is LGEN being Shorted?
This is a steady decline and wondered if hedge funds are short selling the stock. Is the company big in greasy pole Greece? Just guessing
Any comments

10:34 11/06/2015 Re: Where s the divi?
Maybe through good luck more than design, I am really glad i use Selftrade (now Selftrade Equiniti) because no end of people on iii.co.uk are complaining about late delivery of various dividends due on a range of shares from a range of brokers..... Whilst the newly merged business of Selftrade and Equiniti (the latter who I think provide dealing platforms and services for 80% of business transacted online on a execute without advice basis in the UK) are still enhancing old Selftrade systems and bringing new ones online for clients to use, at least we get our dividends 99.9/100 on the due day.

In fact with regard to my own dealings with them, at the moment the only things that spring to mind that don't happen on the day are Dividend Advice Notes which typically seem to arrive 2-3 days after the dividened has been applied to account, transaction notes if buying say Woodford Equity Fund, as they buy from them direct, so you get the purchase note generally the next day.....................

I know there are cheaper online brokers out there than perhaps Selftrade/Equinity, but if you are waiting for dividends etc which are delayed perhaps on a regular basis, then if you are spending time chasing your brokers etc, then why not consider a change............. After all Brokers are service providers !

I have account through Saga with Barclays Stockbrokers and still no L&G dividend a week after due date of June 4th. Phoned Saga on Tuesday who said they were aware of problem and were chasing Barclays. Have others using Barclays now received their divis? By Simon Bousfield

I got mine on due date from Selftrade Equiniti............. People have also been saying they had delays in getting their divis for Aviva too............allI can say is that with Selftrade (now Selftrade Equiniti) they usually pay on the due day, unles there is an issue, late arrival or technical issues, then its first thing the next day.
