|I think you could have a long wait wipo, still, despite being my largest holding I would love to see sub 1400p so I can buy more :)
|I'm looking to buy in around £13.50 again|
|Hopefully we will never know what a Corbyn Government will look like, now that really is scary.
|Corbyn? Didn't he used to be the Labour leader?|
|wad you are correct , but can you imagine if Corbyn and Dougal get into office|
|Such cynicism. In the long run , we need a secure ,reliable and flexible electricity supply. Any Government that has its hands on the tiller during a period of powercuts would be shafted by the electorate. Ask Edward Heath. ( Difficult I know!)
There may be some short term gain from penalising the shareholders with another tax , but they would have to be pretty stupid , even if dressed up as benefiting the customers.|
I hear what you say, but government doesn't always work by logic. Too many in power have little knowledge of business and place unrealistic expectations on certain sectors of the economy - house builders, the NHS.... I could go on forever.|
|Buy and forget ; no Government can afford to squeeze the electricity supply lines too much ; the supply reserve is too small . They need to encourage infrastructure investment and that won't happen if the profit margins are too tenuous.
Looking to add at 1450 ; buying back those I sold for 10% more last month. A trader's share as well?|
|Very nice thanks good advice|
|Atlantic57 With a stock like NG, if you have funds available it's worth averaging down.|
|Warranty your comments make good sense !
Unfortunately i just bought national grid at £11.16 so i am not feeling chilled and yes
i am going to have to be patient.|
|SSE yield now 6.15%, inflation 0.9% announced today down from 1.0% last month, the so called economic 'experts' having predicted 1.1%
...also it looks like Trump is now reigning back on some of his electioneering rhetoric so maybe his term in office will not result in significantly higher interest rates as the 'experts' are suggesting; having said that 10yr US bond yields were up at 2.3% yesterday so it's a mixed and unclear picture right now|
|Chill out, whilst others are clocking into more exciting stocks after the Trump win the wise ones and longer termers are taking the opportunity to stock up on the likes off SSE, IMB and NG. With secure dividends and solid share prices. Just needs a little patience to get a certain pay out.|
|At what point will these utility stocks turn?
Post Trump they are now the ugly sister.
However if interest rates rise then there will be unintended consequences,
so perhaps utility stocks will regain their appeal.
Rising interest rates could decimate the value of long term bonds and
also effect interest sensitive stocks.|
|Offering a 6.2% dividend right now. Wow. Share buy back should help matain the dividend.|
Ulities are out of fashion. Inflation plus interest rates are giving them a beating.
At some point, they will have value again.... we hope.|
|Topped up here and NG.|
|Wow these are taking another hiding today. Brought a few more Friday afternoon. Hindsight, a wonderful thing.|
|Interim Dividend Timetable|
|Any chartists want to explain the significance of going through the 200mda?|
|Got in at 15.04p with costs. Fabulous income stock.
|I'm happy with £14.94 ;-)|
|Interims yesterday sneaked out in the election chaos. Mixed but optimistic, happy to buy back at £15. Well ,trying to squeeze a couple of pence 1498.|
|To all SSE shareholders. I have today put a Limit sell order on my holding in SSE of £20,to stop Shorter,s from loaning the shares from my broker,which they can do for a fee,without me or you knowing about.I suggest you do the same.|
|Thanks , though contrary to Phil's comment I don't always get it right!
It is hard to assess the decision making afterwards. The total portfolio value is key , but that would not assess a missed opportunity , like selling something that subsequently rises. Also what do you compare with ?
My wife has a managed portfolio that consistently just underperforms the FTSE100 and Allshare , which I thought a reasonable performance until I realised that the total value including dividends should be going up at about 3% above those indices as they don't allow for yield . The FTSE100 also outperforms as by definition it replaces the poorer performing stocks with better ones. A more valuable measure would be the total value of the 100 top companies from a given day without swapping.|
