Hi portside, Like you I added today, with another 1,000 CNA in my ISA at just under £2 a share. I now hold 15,000 CNA shares and am fully invested here. Mine is a long term investment and when time permits I will post here the reasons why I am so positive about this company in spite of unwelcome political headwinds. It will be interesting to see if Neil Woodford has bought a few for his new Income Focus Fund. I do expect Centrica to have a positive trading update in May although political worries may put a dampener on the short term outlook. Goldpig

Just waiting on the right price on Lloyds. Would love to have some spare capital to spread around to buy these so hopefully get some soon.

Agree much depends on your attitude to risk. Certainly would have made a hell of a lot more on tech than defensives I held in the last few years!

Well some people prefer cash and spend it, you can't take it with you! There is no guarantees with stock market investments, like Max Keiser says 'You're buying paper'I prefer tech stocks, these companies are boring ?

Absolutely (CNA) one of the few shares that don't have a big premium at present. You becoming a bit of a trader with GSK ;)

Tim, that is a low odds bet!, and also agree longer term. If you wanted a dogs of the UKX portfolio, CNA may be included. GSK report at 12.00 BST, eyes down.

For now these are a bet on what the Tories do with prices,at the moment there is uncertainty which the market hates and while it might provide a good entry for a long term hold can see upside being limited before more is known. imo.

Cna needs to decide whether it is worth continuing in the U.K., with Govt. interference in the market, is it really worthwhile!

Hi supermarky and capeview, I agree in the very short term 'any bodies guess' is correct for the reasons you outlined. What I like about adding at the moment is a projected return of c.6% within the next seven months with both the final and next interim dividend to be paid in 2017. Uncertainty is bound to keep this share volatile in the short term. As a LTBH investor that does not worry me. If the UK Government does introduce some form of cap for domestic customers Centrica will shape its future plans accordingly. Its US operations already have a turnover in excess of £10 billion a year so it might look for more growth opportunities stateside. Conn looks to be doing a good job at Centrica, reducing debt, sharpening up the business, disposing of non core assets. Taking the long view CNA looks a great turnaround story. I will be happy to add more on price weakness. The recovery in this share might still be some time off (years) but recover it will! It will be interesting to hear the trading update in May. I think it is due the same day as the Conservatives launch their election manifesto. Volatility looks guaranteed. Goldpig

Based on elections in France, uncertainty over the Price capping by the government and on past Dividends from 2015 and 2016, it's any bodies guess. 2015 the shares rose within days to go above the drop from the XD but only by about 10-15p where as 2016 took nearly a month and a half probably because of the Referendum but the shares rose almost 40p. Then heading into the winter months both years the shares dropped right off. So like I said, any bodies guess. ;)

ash sorry to see any one lose but that's the game my view is simple make say 10% sell and wait and buy something that as fallen but not a risk
