Agree hifc, was just stating how they valued previous nationalised company's.NAV per share here is only 69p and it has a negative net tangible asset value. As posted previously their balance sheet is very weak.Hope for everyone's sake sanity prevails and Corbyn never gets in No:10.

Hi DD, if Corbyn the Red had a chance to buy this, would they also base the price on assets not just share price? As assets can be easily priced (age, reserves etc), where as the a share price is mostly based on speculation of what may happen not actually cost of the company......... I thought someone on here stated a few months back that based on Asset value Centricas share should be around the 2.50 mark, therefore shouldn't any nationalization offer be close to this?..............All speculation but any offer should not just be based on share price history alone, there is Debt levels, rebranding costs, Asset values, future reserve value, redundancy package costs from restructuring, pension deficit etc etc.......... but the Commies would just ignore all that and say 50p a share.

SSE and NG are well up today, the fall here is company specific IMO.Read an interesting article (William James, Reuter's) about previous nationalisation by Labour in the 70's, they set the price of the company's based on the average share price for the preceding 6 months that Labour enacted the nationalisation strategy. Quickly using an exponential moving average (last 6 months) it gives a price of 126p. However, Labours policy may also include excluding any pension deficits (etc) from the value.Despite what my saddo stalkers may think I strongly oppose any nationalisation of utility company's, it will not be workable (too many layers of management and red tape, look at Welsh Water's structure) and will simply put customer prices up due to their inefficiencies. Corbyn et al will kill the UK economy.For those on here that spend more time stalking people with different views, your time would be better served doing a lot more research on your own investments, you can search for the link/s yourselves.Lovely weather we have been having, enjoy, rain is on the way!.

I would have thought Teresa Disarray resigning today would have affected this share price more (negative) as it makes the chance of Corbyn the Commy closer to getting in power to steal this from its owners (trigger an election).

SSE 1,029.85 13:02:26 24/05/19 1.71% 17.35 National Grid 814.40 13:02:45 24/05/19 1.04% 8.40 Centrica 92.86 13:02:29 24/05/19 0.54% -0.74 FTSE 100 7,291.31 13:02:52 24/05/19 0.83% 60.12 FTSE 350 4,039.78 13:02:49 24/05/19 0.80% 31.99 FTSE All-Share 3,988.31 13:02:52 24/05/19 0.79% 31.30 Ofgem said its approach to the next round of price controls, starting in 2021, would almost halve companies' permitted return on equity to the lowest rate ever. It said the lower allowed return on equity of 4.3% and lower allowed return on debt would reduce costs passed to consumers by £6bn over five years to 2026. But the change is not popular with energy companies such as SSE and National Grid, which argue the terms do not take account of the work they do to improve the system. The watchdog said it would make licence conditions tougher and give companies incentives to protect vulnerable customers. It will also make changes to innovation funding and provide new funding to support projects aimed at vulnerable or poorly served customers. Jonathan Brearley, Ofgem's executive director for systems and networks, said: “Lowering the cost of capital for network energy companies will put money back into consumers’ pockets while service standards are required to remain high. Our new price control for networks will pave the way for a cheaper, smarter and more sustainable energy system and is a key step in our journey to a low carbon future.” Ofgem said its regulatory framework would also encourage decarbonisation of power, heat and transport and allow consumers to benefit from technological change. It will assess each company's environmental plan when setting funding allowances and set up a strategic fund for big projects. National Grid said Ofgem had made some welcome adjustments from its preliminary proposals and was still consulting on elements of its plan. But the operator of the electricity network in England and Wales said it disagreed with the change to cost of equity. "We remain disappointed with the proposed range, which we believe does not fairly reflect the level of risk borne by networks," National Grid said. "In the context of the role that networks will play in enabling the transition to a more efficient and decarbonised energy system, we believe this is not in the long-term interests of consumers."

I like most am deep under water here and guilty of thinking it could not drop this low. Safe defensive boring shares like cna will always be needed. Not good for mental health to check daily. Just hold and pray for some sort of turnaround at some point. Will reinvest dividend and look on this as a long term hold. Certainly not crystallising heavy losses. In 5 years time this could turn out to be a good investment when I sell (collecting dividend as we go) certainly better than bank account just alot more stressful)

I agree supermarky, looks grim at the moment here without any support. How low it will go is anybody's guess, I have gave in with this one really. Put it in the bottom draw and look at it in six months or so. Sometimes I think I was mad buying quite so many here. (100k shares) and the last tranche was at 119p (50k) which seems miles away at the moment

Of course not diku, again what a stupid thing to say !! How long have you honestly been doing the markets, at times you sound like somebody who is just starting and trying to get the feel of things, I have been interested for over 53 years now, the first time I went to the stock exchange was in 1966, when I was 12. None of this electronic stuff in them days, ( I think it came in about 1987) their were lots of men with bowler hats and runners running back and forth to them. I took a big interest since then.

I agree whatsup, this is the reason I will not buy into TUI. Telecoms BT & Vodafone are cheap at the moment , but still don't tempt me with buying 5G licenses . Glencore my old favorite ( no stamp duty ) has dropped from about about 340p in the last month. It is a job to know what to go for. Have a stake in Barclays at the moment, down a bit from purchase price

JP... Tui have 737Max parked up due to Boeing grounding and they were due to receive another 6? In a few months time. My understanding is the grounding of 737Max May continue for a very long time and safety agencies in EU and China will no longer rubber stamp FAA findings and will want to re-certify them selves. This will cost them about €300 million at a guess if this continues for another 4 months. Consider Aviva , solid company , good balance sheet , stable future earnings , I’m in at 478p they are currently around 410p. FYI. All my holdings here are down , so you may not want to put too much weight on my say so
