Off topic, but can anyone explain why the price we are paying for gas is so high?When you look at the future price and history from 2019 to 2021 it ranged between $2-3 per unit (or however it's measured).In 2022 (Russia's invasion) it peaked at $10 and domestic gas prices rocketed but now we're back down to $3 and yet domestic prices haven't dropped at all.I'm using the same basis as oil where fuel drops if the price of oil drops.Surely gas prices should work the same and we are being fleeced?

Nice to see the price recovering here but the customer service I have received trying to sort my late Dads account out is some of the worst I have ever come across.

Will not bore you with the details but basically despite sending them photographic evidence of the meter readings on several different dates they refuse to accept them despite the fact his house is empty and the heating is off.Looks like it's going to have to be escalated to the ombudsman.

Centrica on course for 'highest-ever' earnings predicts broker

Gas installation

Centrica’s profits upgrade yesterday put it on course for its highest-ever earnings, according to broker Credit Suisse, with the shares attractive even without the soaring gas price bonus.

The broker upped its price target for the British Gas owner to 135p, from 130p, and its forecast of EPS this year to 31.2p (from 24.2p).

Key now is how earnings normalise once gas prices settle back down and Credit Suisse see these at around 7-8p, while cash flow should be strong enough for another £200mln buyback in the second half of 2023.

Operationally, price caps mean suppliers such as British Gas are essentially de-risked from energy movements short-term, while the failure of small independent suppliers means its market share is now a healthy 25%.

Customers switching to more energy-efficient products should also see growing momentum over the next five years.

Credit Suisse notes that on its forecast for clean earnings (ie non-gas price inflated), the shares trade on a 10 times multiple, whereas it thinks it should be fifteen times.

“We forecast a 10% free cash flow yield, 3.6% dividend yield and recurring buyback of 2%,” added Credit Suisse, which has an 'outperform' rating.

Shares today were up 1.8% at 97p.

The volume has been well up on the past seven days and yesterdays was huge.
From News Now.
rom the start of this year, Centrica and other power generators also have to pay a windfall tax on UK profits after chancellor Jeremy Hunt imposed a levy of 45% on wholesale electricity sold at more than £75 per Mwh.Currently, the spot price for electricity is £162 per Mwh, having been over £600 per Mwh in October.

strong trading update today.
This share should be well above 200p based on todays update.
but these are strange times, politics, regulation, Ukraine.

I will hold here, underlying EPS of 30p. cash surplus, big turnover.

who are we kidding...a PE of under 4.

All of the old rules of valuation have been ignored.

Prospects transformed with US partnership and debt/equity fundraising

SSE, Drax and Centrica all rise after details of power windfall tax revealed

Drax and Centrica are set to benefit from exceptions in the government's new windfall tax on generators


SSE PLC - SSE, Drax and Centrica all rise after details of power windfall tax revealed


Drax Power Station runs mainly on wood pellets

SSE PLC (LSE:SSE), Drax Group (LSE:DRX) and British Gas owner Centrica PLC all saw their share prices rise after the the government's release of draft legislation for a windfall tax on electricity generators.

Due to begin on January 1, the government outlined on Tuesday that firms generating electricity from nuclear, renewable, biomass, and waste sources will be taxed at 45% on “exceptional receipts.”

This means “wholesale electricity sold at an average price in excess of £75 per MWh,” equalling £10mln over 12 months, said the government

It also includes effective tax breaks for companies facing “exceptional” costs, after increased bills in line with hiked energy prices.

Jefferies analyst Ahmed Farman suggested this could benefit Drax in particular, which operates a North Yorkshire power station fuelled mainly by wood pellets.

Given a forecasted 2023 cost of £110/MWh for biomass, Farman predicted Drax would have to pay roughly £200mln less next year as a result.

He added Centrica might benefit too as it owns a 20% interest in the UK's nuclear capacity.

Barclays analysts suggested this could equal around 30p extra per share in earnings to Drax over the course of 2023.

Drax’s share price rose by 2.2% to 675p on the news, while SSE and Centrica also climbed 0.7% to 1,715p and 1% to 95p respectively.
