as I am sure you've all discovered.|
|If one wants to trade these shares on or after 1st August we will need to know the EPICs. So I thought I would go to their site to find out.
Well, well, well! Private investors have to ring (or email) the Registrar : institutional investors are encouraged to talk to their investor relations team
So now we know : we are second class citizens
Any way will post the new EPICs when (if?) I get them.|
|I am sad, A certain German Bank gave a tip that NGT would rise to the 590 area
some time ago, as I bought in at 380 I'm not a loser- but how the mighty have fallen|
|maconscreen : Hi.
If you buy NGT shares now - forgetting any price movements that you may or may not think will occur - leads to the following
You buy a number of shares (paying stamp duty etc on them) and then get back 65 pence per share in cash - and if you are going to invest that you will have to pay more stamp duty etc to re-invest. Simply not my cup of tea at all.
So, conclusion is
a) if you are a holder already and you intend to keep them - hang on in and
bite the bullet of re-ivesting the dosh
b) if you are not a holder - and you think that the share is going to tread
water, then wait until the issue is out of the way and make up your mind
what to do
c) if you are like me, then set a buy price that you are happy to buy at
(in my case less than a fiver) and buy regardless of the state of the
|just a question for the more experienced among you
this 60p cash b share offer on ngt.is this worth a
punt.if they are going to consolidate 49 shares for
43 shares will this not negate the cash you are
|Well, well. Another person who has become too attached to a share - and doesn't want to listen to any other kind of argument. Sad really, as this place is meant for sensible discussions - which necessarily means that there must be some differing views. And by the way - I sold at 550 having bought first at a similar price to Charles7 - and traded a good few times on the way up. I can understand 'happy holders' : it is a good policy if you pick the right share at the right price - as did Charles7. But I like a bit of added zest as well.|
|£3.80 -£5.20 luverly jubberly - post 347 and 348 - please go away - what added value do your unsubsantiated rants make???????????????
Bye - Bye - filtered|
|High yielders are getting screwed as 10yr US rates rising and sterling looks distinctly iffy.
It doesnt look a good risk/reward anymore|
|Hmmm.... The share price is just slipping and sliding downwards now. Getting ever closer to my buy back in price. Any bets on how far it is going to fall?|
|sorry to intrude guys
all epson inks now £1.49
all canon inks now £1.19
|National Grid said no problem with their supply, looks like terrorism|
Quality of supply|
|If you don't want the taxman to take a slice then go for the retain B share option and wait for them to be converted back into real shares within 4 years (at the then prevailing price) or if you are not subject to capital gains go for the buy back option rather than a dividend. (IMHO of course!)|
|Based on the middle market price of £5.46 at close on 3 June 05 a holding of 490 shares was worth £2675.40
The 430 new shares to be issued would be worth £5.46 x 430 = £2347.8
The Return of cash would add £490 x £0.65 = £ 318.5
Total = £2666.30
Should this total figure not be equal to £2675.40.
If so where has the other £9.10 gone if not to the shareholder?
Should I be suspicious?|
|49 shares at 65p=3185
49 shares consilatated to 43 = 6 shares lost @£5.36 per share =£32.16p?|
Only if you have substantial existing capital gains and/or a considerable number of NGT shares.
Remember your annual CGT limit is £8,500.
e.g. B shares disposed of under option 2: you could have 13,000 eligible NGT shares and still be under the annual CGT tax allowance (assuming you have no other CGT in the year).
|Just worked out that I will be slightly worse off than before after this return of capital. I might be better to sell the 65p a share offer, but whatever way the taxman will still get a slice.|
|Thank you. I appreciate you taking the time|
|Good morning oniabsta
I am not going to tell you the answer but if you were to click on the link in the header above
06/06/05 08:17 AFXF National Grid to return 2 bln stg of cash to shareholders
you would see what it is.
Another way is to click on the large NGT (in brackets) which will bring up a page of details about the company - including Stock Exchange announcements with headings. Click on the heading to see the full announcement.
I have done it this way to show you how to find out things for yourself, and then you don't have to wait for some kind person to assist.
However if that doesn't work for you the answer is that you must be holding the shares on 26th July as when the market opens on 27th they will have gone ex whatever
PS if the announcement you are looking for doesn't appear (cos they only show the most recent) press the More link. It is also a good idea to go to fundamentals when you have finished doing that as it will give a list of all the past dividends and a lot of other information as well.
There is a lot of information on this site - it is just a matter of finding it. Good Luck|
|can anyone tell me the ex B share date ? please.
i'm wondering why the fall in share price and think i've missed this date
thanks in advance|
|I cannot work out a price after ex-B shares, I think around 5.00, but then there is the share consolidation, so I think around 5.35.
5.90...??? I am bullish about this share, but not that bullish...!!!|
|Pencae. Drop due to going X.D. today. Div. = 15.2p|
