|It's ridiculous where this is at the moment, the company is in better shape than this time last year, the constant Govt meddling or threats too in the consumer energy market, the whole industry will suffer from a lack of investment, they might as well nationalise the whole business, the consumer is better informed than ever about pricing, if not they only have to go on a comparison site. The Govt. can barely make a decision about nuclear, the best and only alternative to our needs, instead they pursue policies as regards wind power, the most inefficient source of power, and the consumer ends up subsidising it, simply crackers!|
|So follow what I am doing and that will get you the best price BUT it does require one to have a block of free capital until mid June.|
|I bought in at the £2 level last time but should have sold and did not :-(
Will buy again, but the chart is the chart and I suspect there are a lot of people watching it. Its consistent and repeatable, which I think unfortunately means the big money will wait for £2.|
|Jack, sounds like a plan, may do similar.|
|EI: I've been watching with a view, based on chart, to buying 1/3 holding at 2.10 and then adding if falls to near 2.00. Getting nervous about the 2.10 target though as the chart is pretty horrible. Also watching DLG looking for 3.30 re-entry.|
|Yes ..... see my recent posts please...........
The government will not touch the energy providers as its too complicated and Brexit is in the way.
AGM in May + Dividend Payment in June...........so keep on buying on Pound Cost Averaging on the way down except the price has stalled these last few days.
I have been through the Report and Accounts and I have to say what a solid business this is becoming. Conn has cleared up the prevoius persons mess and by this time next year the market will crying out for this stock. It will be difficult to catch Conn doing anything but good as this is his last "big" job.|
|They should be, at least Conn, he's got plenty!|
|Every day down, anyone buying here?.|
|why its the system that is wrong , all companies are out of control on pay .
and its all down to remuneration committees giving out big bonuses so they get their hand outs its criminal , the sfo should investigate the committees ,|
I think its a kick in the teeth for shareholders as well...|
|.......until the market starts to fall when I stop buying.
Next buy will be towards the close today at around 213 or lower.|
|Can understand that logic.|
|Trying to pick bottoms you will get smelly fingers........so pound Cost Average at current prices.........down to £2 and then sit.
Ex-Div 11 May so I can sell or at least look at my position as payment is 29 June @ 8.40p per share.
This may help as its a very interesting speculation as this government will back away from creating short term problems for itself.|
|Take a look at some of his RDSB calls over the last 12 months, words fail me.|
|Big Six Energy Suppliers To Lose More Market Share Due To Price Cap
|FINANCE Share2 beaten-up dividend aristocrats: are they bargains?Fool.co.uk Royston WildFool.co.uk20 March 2017HSBC Lion, LondonHSBC Lion, LondonMoreIt comes as little surprise that market appetite for Centrica (LSE: CNA) has slumped again in recent weeks.The energy giant has seen its share price slip 8% during the past four weeks, mirroring worsening optimism for oil prices and taking the share to its cheapest since mid-December.Hopes that OPEC's supply curbs announced in November would balance the crude market at some point in 2017 are fast receding as US producers race to plug their rigs back into the ground. Just last Friday industry monitor Baker Hughes reported that new hardware additions rose for the ninth straight week, a huge 14-unit increase taking the total to 631 and to the highest since September 2015.But this is not the only reason to fear for profits at the Centrica Energy production division and the US is not the only country to plough vast sums into boosting fossil fuel output. And signs that the OPEC accord may be already unravelling are not exactly helping investor confidence, either.On top of this, concerns over the future revenues outlook of British Gas are also rising as the likelihood of increasing inflation in the months ahead should drive more households into the arms of cheaper, independent, suppliers.And while British Gas has, unlike the rest of the so-called Big Six, vowed to keep its standard tariffs locked until August to stop the steady fall in its customer base, such measures are unlikely to help the bottom line snap out of its tailspin.The City certainly doesn't think so, and expects Centrica to record a fractional earnings decline in 2017, the fourth successive annual fall if realised.And this leaves hopes of a 12.5p per share dividend -- up from 12p in 2016 -- on very shaky ground in my opinion.With the projected payout also covered just 1.3 times, well below the widely-regarded safety benchmark of two times, I reckon investors should steer clear of the firm, despite its market-topping 5.8% yield.Bank in bother|
|That will do nicely.|
|red, think around £2 looks the mark.|
|I'm in at £2, if it ever gets there again.|
|At £2 ?.|
|It'll bounce back, Conn a strong leader, just give it time, nearly at the bottom of range!|
|I've decided to sue the government for destroying the value of my holding. Should I go for just what ive lost or what they've cost every share holder?|
|I seem to be unable to find out what the City W........ think about CNA.
Is it that the government wants to "cap" energy prices but may be unable to do so or is it something else?|
