lord gnome: There's a heck of a lot of doom and gloom baked into the share price now, but I reckon the government has made CNA un-investable. How can anyone now buy into CNA without any certainty as to government actions and their effect on profits and growth?

walbrock82: Does Centrica’s share price represent value? Using 12-month trailing earnings to forecast 2017, we get £449m + £895m - £507m = £837m. So, the savings programme has contributed to stopping the decline on earnings. It has lost a total of 1.3m customers in two years, despite promising to be customer focus. Lower capital spending, net share proceeds and asset disposal contributed to net debt reduction to £3bn. But pension deficits have spiked higher to £900m. Speaking of lower capital spending, will this translate to higher capex in the future? Using capex/commitment ratio, this is approaching six years, the highest on record. Amidst the chaos any future asset write down is limited. It has raised electricity prices which will help sales but may end up losing customers if rivals price rise is lower than British Gas. On balance, valuations are at ten-year lows and may go lower if it continues to lose customers as a price war may break out. So, expect the share price to trade between £1.50 and £2 for the next 12 months. If there is no price war with limited government crackdown on prices, then this is a long-term investment opportunity to take advantage of the high dividend yield.

walbrock82: Why hasn’t Centrica’s share price moved, despite raising electricity prices by 12.5% (it owned British Gas) for the first time since 2013? http://bit.ly/2v8BGEw The reason is the British Pound has fallen 20% against USD in 2016/17. This limit profit growth! On a more serious note, Centrica’s share price saw no improvement since 2001! WHY? One reason is ROCE has been declining.

susiebe: Lurker,from AOL?It has been a difficult year for Centrica(LSE: CNA). The company's share price has declined by 14% since the start of the year, and its outlook appears to be somewhat uncertain. It is in the midst of major change and this may lead to further declines in investor sentiment. Furthermore, political risk is also relatively high and this could cause additional disappointment over the medium term.Despite this, a turnaround is achievable. In fact, a small-cap reported on Wednesday which has generated a 270% return in 2017 following a 90% fall in its share price over a two-year period. This shows that even for the biggest-falling shares, a recovery is possible.A changing businessOne catalyst to push the Centrica share price higher is its new strategy. It is seeking to move away to a large extent from its oil and gas activities. Instead, it will focus on energy services. This is likely to be a more stable industry in which to operate, and could mean that the business returns to being a popular income stock. In other words, with dividend investors highly valuing the reliability and resilience of their income streams, a more robust business model could justify a higher rating for the stock in the long run.As part of the company's new strategy, it is seeking to reduce costs. In the current year, it has already achieved half of its targeted £500m in cost reductions. More cuts are planned in future as it seeks to reduce net debt levels to between £2.5bn and £3bn by the end of the year. Lower debt should equate to lower balance sheet risk, which may create more certainty for investors and generate a higher rating for the company's stock price.News flowOf course, Centrica's progress has been hampered somewhat by negative news flow in recent months. Increasing support for the Labour Party has meant the threat of nationalisation is now higher. Similarly, increasing electricity prices for consumers has also arguably made political risk higher for the business. Both of these issues could hold the company's share price back, although the reality is that rising profitability, lower costs and lower debt levels could offset the company's risks and allow it to deliver improved share price performance.

capeview: I wonder if they are somehow trying to price in the huge rise that happened yesterday before close which then pegged back a couple of pence before the close. If it hadn't had that rise it would be roughly what the share price is now. But that shouldn't impact the share price if things are done properly with no hidden agendas and the price should definitely be higher this morning. Then again, just look at how Lloyds shares dropped after the dividend far more than the divi price?? Update. I just wanted to check on something, and I'm thinking the share price is based on the opening price and not the closing price or the previous day. Checking back the last 3 dividends for Centrica, the divi price is the difference on the previous days open not on the previous days close from those days share price details. Not looked at any other company but todays price seems to do the same thing. Look at the opening price and they appear to be the difference of the dividend.

Should investors give Centrica the cold shoulder?By David Brenchley | Mon, 8th May 2017 - 13:56Share thisShould investors give Centrica the cold shoulder?Warmer-than-normal weather so far in 2017 on both sides of the Atlantic might be good news for the British and American public, but the sun has not been shining on utility struggler Centrica (CNA). With electricity consumption down and in an uncertain regulatory environment, the owner of British Gas is in trouble.Year-to-date, Centrica's share price is down 15% after falling as much as 2.5% Monday to a 15-month low, although bargain hunters have since chased them higher.In a first-quarter trading update ahead of its AGM, the £11 billion company reaffirmed that it is on track to achieve targets for the full-year set out in its preliminary results, including operating cash flow of over £2 billion and efficiency savings of £250 million.Net debt is expected to be between £2.5 billion and £3 billion, and positive momentum in the US continues.chart1However, British Gas is haemorrhaging customers, with over quarter of a million in the first three months of the year joining the 400,000 that deserted the energy supplier last year. It's the first time since the 1970s that British Gas's UK residential customer count has fallen below 14 million.Elsewhere, UK wholesale oil, gas and baseload prices have fallen since Centrica's February prelims and it is currently awaiting the political party manifestos ahead of June's general election.Both the Conservatives and Labour are tipped to announce price caps on energy tariffs as an election vote-winner. The Tories reckon political intervention will knock an average £100 per year off consumers' energy bills.But Centrica hit back, claiming "evidence from other countries would suggest this will lead to reduced competition and choice, and potentially higher average prices". It went on to add that it was "competitively well-positioned" for changes. Let's hope so.Has Centrica bottomed out?Broker UBS has already downgraded its view on Centrica due to the potential of an energy tariff cap, which it said back in April is now more likely. It reduced its recommendation from 'buy' to 'neutral', slashing its 12-month target price by 16%.It reckons a cap on the standard tariff could reduce retail margins by a third from 2018 – a conservative estimate on which to base its new target price. "[We] reduce target price to 215p, reflecting both a lower earnings per share (EPS) and a higher required dividend yield to recognise the higher risk on the shares," analyst Sam Arie explained."In the downside case, if margins were reduced by two-thirds, the shares could fall to 185p." It's unlikely we will have full visibility until some time after the election, though. This, Arie says, means the shares are unlikely to regain ground in the coming months.The chart above shows historic support at around the current 200p level (pink line), and this appears to be holding up again. Centrica shares aren't obviously expensive either.On UBS estimates for 2017 earnings per share (EPS) of 15.9p and 15.6p next year, they trade on a forward price/earnings (PE) ratio of 12.5 versus 14 times in recent history. UBS forecasts are is conservative, too. Using more generous consensus estimates brings that PE multiple down even further. And a prospective dividend yield of over 5% is also attractive.That said, political uncertainty creates problems for investors ahead of next month's general election, and this is one for the brave just now.This article is for information and discussion purposes only and does not form a recommendation to invest or otherwise.

mj19: Does Centrica have more dividend appeal than BP, HSBC and BHP Billiton after trading statement?WILL THE CENTRICA PLC (LON:CNA) (CNA.L) SHARE PRICE RISE FASTER THAN SHARES IN BP PLC (LON:BP) (BP.L), HSBC HOLDINGS PLC (LON:HSBA) (HSBA.L) AND BHP BILLITON PLC (LON:BLT) (BLT.L) DUE TO SUPERIOR DIVIDEND APPEAL?May 8, 2017 Robert Stephens BHP Billiton (LON:BLT), BP (LON:BP), Centrica (LON:CNA), HSBC (LON:HSBA) 0Centrica PLCCentrica PLCThe Centrica PLC (LON:CNA) (CNA.L) share price has dropped 2% after it released a trading statement ahead of its AGM later today. The company's operating performance in the year to date has been as expected, with most operational inputs and parameters as per guidance. Adjusted operating cash flow is expected to be above £2 billion, with group capital investment expected to be no more than £1 billion. This includes small acquisitions of less than £100 million each, as well as E&P capex of around £500 million.Progress is being made on Centrica's efficiency programme. Efficiency savings of £250 million are expected in addition to the 2016 savings of £384 million. This is part of Centrica's £750 million per annum cost efficiency programme. As part of this, the company's LFL direct headcount reduction is expected to be approximately 1500 during the year.Closing net debt is expected to be between £2.5 billion-£3 billion, with incremental revenue investment of around £100 million in growth areas.In spite of the above, warmer than expected weather in the year to date has meant lower than forecast consumption in the UK and North America. UK wholesale oil, gas and baseload power prices have fallen since the company's results in February.With a dividend yield of 6%, the Centrica share price could hold its own against popular dividend shares such as BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L), HSBC Holdings plc (LON:HSBA) (HSBA.L) and BHP Billiton plc (LON:BLT) (BLT.L) in my view. BP currently yields 6.8%, HSBC has a dividend yield of 6% and BHP Billiton shares are expected to yield 5.9% this year.In my opinion, the Centrica share price could perform relatively well in the long run. While I think there may be some challenges as it puts in place an ambitious change in strategy, it seems to be making progress with efficiencies. While I'm optimistic about the share prices of BP, HSBC and BHP Billiton, I feel Centrica could perform well on a relative basis.

4seeaproblem: Yes, but BP's share price has risen 20% from its recent low.. CNA share price however now approaching its recent low again, that was previously seen in 2009.So approaching a 6 year low. I have to confess this new CEO looks to be out of his depth. ....not a peep from him or the Board. His prime responsibility is supposedly to provide shareholder value !
