Is the Centrica share price too cheap to ignore? Shares in British Gas owner Centrica (LSE: CNA) have been languishing in recent months, trailing sector peers such as SSE and National Grid. From hitting a peak of just over £4 in 2013, Centrica’s share price has since more than halved to 153p. Competitive pressure Investors clearly believe Centrica stands to lose out big time against the looming price cap on energy tariffs and ongoing competitive pressures in the retail supply business. That intense competition was partly behind the loss of another 110,000 domestic customer accounts in the first four months of the year, which came on top of a decline of roughly 1.3m customer accounts last year. With a haemorrhaging of its customer base, there are growing worries about the impact on the company’s long-term earnings ability, not least because of the uncertain sustainability of its dividend. Let’s not forget that Centrica has already taken an axe to its dividend before — only back in 2015, the group cut its dividend by 30% after profits fell sharply in the wake of a slump in oil and gas prices. Near-term tailwinds But despite the tough operating environment, the company still generates good cash flow and has a high level of financial flexibility, which is underpinned by its relatively stable balance sheet position. Also reassuringly, the company said it expects to be able to maintain the current 12p per share dividend in the current financial year. There are a number of near-term tailwinds to consider as well, including the improvement in commodity prices since the start of the year and a potential sale in its 20% stake in EDF Energy Nuclear Generation. Meanwhile earlier this week, City broker Jefferies upgraded Centrica to a ‘buy’ on expectations of a “more balanced approach” towards the impending introduction of the government’s energy price cap, following the release of Ofgem’s recent consultation paper which gave “detailed consideration of suppliers’ costs”. Sure, there’s still a great deal of uncertainty with the Centrica’s long-term earnings outlook, but I reckon more of the risk is now on the upside. Shares in the group trade at just 12.5 times its expected earnings this year and offer prospective investors a very high dividend yield of 7.8%.

Smart move by Conn to wait for the dividend date to pass before making yesterday’s bullish statement,like he’s awarding the long term share holders,I reckon more good news beckons, selling some of the unwanted assets would be a result,I’ve lost track of the rest of the market to be honest,a lot of losses about today so I’m gonna sit tight here.
