RSA Shares May Be Worth Hanging Onto Even if the Much-Vaunted Take-Over Falls at the Last Hurdle

Hello, Share Scoopers. My long-standing investment in RSA Insurance Group (RSA) has seen some nasty disappointments over the years. There was that time when a big take-over offer for the giant insurer came to naught, wiping out a fistful of paper profits. And now the company is involved in another potential merger. The shares have jumped accordingly, but my dilemma is whether to sell in case the present offer falls through.

RSA shareholders should bite the hand off the cash bid

When Malcolm wrote here back in late February that 'the world has never been so precarious, making big insurance companies even more essential', none of us would have expected the events of the last eight or nine months.  Anyhow, I hope Malcolm held onto the Royal & Sun Alliance (RSA) shares he loved up in that article, as the late Thursday bid for the company at 685p in cash by a consortium of the Canadian insurer Intact Financial and the Danish insurer Tryg gives all shareholders the nicest of decisions.

Why Big Insurers Like This Shouldn't Suffer Because of the Pestilence

Hello, Share Smoothies. Well, it’s a hard act to follow. I refer to the amazingly successful online share show this wonderful site hosted on Saturday. Pity any analyst that has to think of an idea that was not given a thorough look-over at that share-packed event. Especially as the long list of speakers was the best the UK can offer. But allow me to highlight a larger company which I don't think was mentioned. Though it's been impossible to take it all in as yet...

Profits Rise for this Giant Insurer In a More Hostile World

Hello, Share Sizzlers. You might think insurance companies aren’t such a good bet these days. What with stronger hurricanes, floods and the new virus. But wind and floods cause a rush of worried new customers while people seek more travel protection in case they’re forced to cancel their plans. So the outlook for RSA Insurance Group (RSA), formerly Royal Insurance, is possibly even more positive than the encouraging set of full-year results it’s just published...

As the World Gets Scarier, You Might Want to Consider this Great Protector

Hello Share Takers. I have holdings in two big British insurance companies. Both have share prices presently doing better than most other Footsie jumbos. Legal & General (LGEN) is the better bet from the p/e point of view - at only 8.9x. The other choice RSA Insurance Group (RSA), the old Royal Insurance company, has a p/e of 17.3. Never mind, the City is pleased with RSA’s progress...

Big Insurer RSA Sells more Premiums as Divi Rises and Claims Fall

Hello, Share Squeezers. The insurance sector has been static as of late, after a few months of steady progress earlier. It’s those Brexit fears and the low pound that’s to blame, just as it is with banking stocks which are similarly mired. But one of the big companies, RSA Insurance Group (RSA) - the old Royal Insurance Company - has just released numbers which are encouraging...

Step-Carefully-Stephen Helps Another Member of the Royal Family

Hello, Share Smashers. Regret lasts a long time in Shareland and I still kick myself for sitting tight when RSA (RSA) was about to be taken over by Zurich four years ago. I should have sold before the deal (and the share price) crashed to the deck. Never mind, the share price has since been gradually recovering and I am still well into profit on paper...
