ariane: COURTESY OF hifc231 1 Mar '20 - 11:27 - 26866 of 26866 0 0 0 "These British shares are shielded from the coronavirus stock market dip" Utilities Energy companies and utilities such as Centrica and National Grid, Severn Trent and United Utilities will be largely insulated from the coronavirus pandemic, according to Helal Miah, of stock broker The Share Centre. None of the businesses have exposures to the affected countries in Asia and Europe and domestic demand for their electricity and water should not be impacted if the virus spreads. "All British utilities have done exceptionally well lately and have only experienced a very marginal pullback compared to the rest of the market,” he added. National Grid fell just 0.8pc in the wake of the market panic this week, compared to a 4pc fall in the FTSE All Share, a broad measure of the British stock market. Leigh Himsworth, of fund firm Fidelity, said Pennon Group was his first choice in the utilities space because half of its business is Viridor, a leading recycling company. There is a drawback, however. The supply chain and manufacturing for parts and equipment used by these companies is likely to involve China, but Mr Miah argued this would not be a significant factor for some time. Engineering businesses FW Thrope designs and manufactures professional lighting equipment and has no sales or supply chain exposure to China or the Asia Pacific region, according to stock broker Liberum. The firm classifies the company as one of its best tips. Britain is its largest market accounting for 68pc of turnover, followed by the Netherlands with 28pc. The stock's share price has been unaffected and has risen around 3pc this week. Macclesfield-based Bodycote provides engineering services, such as metal joining, but like FW Thrope, does not have a large supply chain involving Asian businesses. Liberum said it has less than 4pc of its sales and production located in China. However, Mr Himsworth warned that while these companies are not in direct contact with China, they do sell to companies that will be affected. Bodycote supplies parts to European car manufactures which have seen demand from China fall, he said. Insurers Mr Miah said life insurance businesses should be relatively immune. The Share Centre has Legal & General and Aviva on their recommended stocks list. While their share prices have fallen this week, Mr Miah said this was due to their investment businesses suffering from a fall in revenue as stock markets sold off. "The overall business will be fine and sales will continue to be reliable even if the virus spreads. Of course they would have to pay out if there was a rise in fatalities, but there would also be plenty more people looking at insurance," he said Source: Https://www.telegraph.co.uk/investing/shares/british-companies-can-shield-investors-coronavirus-sell/

adrian j boris: British Gas owner Centrica slumps to £1BILLION loss and sees its share price dive while blaming Government's energy price cap Centrica swung to loss of around £1.1bn last year, its latest results show It represents a dramatic reversal of the £575million profit booked a year earlier The FTSE-100 listed group has seen its share price dive by over 16% today By Jane Denton For Thisismoney Published: 09:41 GMT, 13 February 2020 | Updated: 09:44 GMT, 13 February 2020 e-mail 11 View comments British Gas owner Centrica swung to a loss of £1.1billion last year, with the group blaming the Government's energy bill price cap and lower natural gas prices for its fall in fortunes. The energy group's annual pre-tax profit was wiped out in a dramatic reversal of the £575million it banked a year earlier. With fierce competition mounting in the sector, the group admitted it lost 286,000 energy supply accounts in the last year, and total revenues fell nearly 3 per cent to £22.7billion. Dismal: British Gas owner Centrica swung to a loss of over £1billion last year +2 Dismal: British Gas owner Centrica swung to a loss of over £1billion last year Centrica's annual loss is the deepest reported by the energy giant since 2015, when it made a loss of £857million. In the last year, the group's shareholders have seen their annual dividend cut by 58 per cent, from 12p a share to 5p a share. The FTSE-100 listed group's share price has taken a hefty hit since the publication of the results this morning and is currently down 16 per cent to 70.8p. Centrica said the Government's energy price cap had cost it around £300million in revenues. The Government's cap on energy prices came into force at the beginning of last year, promising to bring down bills for customers on default tariffs.

Share this article Share HOW THIS IS MONEY CAN HELP Centrica share price and data available here The group also booked £1.75billion in one-off charges, the biggest of which was a £476million impairment of its upstream oil and gas production assets and a £372million impairment against its 20 per cent stake in UK nuclear power plants. The group's net debt is set to come in higher than expected, at around the £3.2billion to £3.6billion mark. In the year to 31 December, the company's net debt soared by 20 per cent per cent to £3.1billion, while adjusted operating cash flow tanked 18 per cent to £1.8billion. Outgoing Centrica boss Iain Conn admitted that while the last year had been 'challenging', the number of people ditching and switching British Gas as their energy provider had slowed down. Poor: Centrica admitted it lost 286,000 energy supply accounts in the last year +2 Poor: Centrica admitted it lost 286,000 energy supply accounts in the last year Conn said the group saw its service arm grow over the year. The service arm deals with anything from boiler repairs to the installation of smart thermostats and security cameras. The group has been on a major cost-cutting drive and in the last year made £315million worth of 'cost efficiencies.' In the year ahead, it plans to make another £350million worth of savings. The group also now has over 3,000 fewer staff than it did a year ago. The number of injuries per 200,000 hours worked at Centrica rose to 1.006, marking a 4 per cent increase on the year before, and at least the third year that the measure has increased. Consumers can go elsewhere now. Much like Royal Mail and BT, this monopoly incumbent has lost its way in the new world of competition - Neil Wilson Conn said that the second half of last year was better than the first, 'demonstrating momentum as we enter 2020.' In the last few years, a growing number of customers have been turning their backs on the UK's Big Six energy suppliers, and a number of experts hailed 2019 as the year that their stranglehold on the market was finally broken for good. Centrica's rival SSE was snapped up by one of the smaller challengers, Ovo Energy, which only entered the market a decade ago. Ovo and other challengers spent the second half of the last decade stealing customers away from the former giants, slashing Centrica's market share from 24 per cent when Conn took over, to 19 per cent towards the end of last year, according to figures from Ofgem. 'British Gas is really struggling with the onslaught from small suppliers, the price cap, and falling natural gas prices hitting them hard,' said Mark Todd, the co-founder of Energyhelpline. Conn is gearing up to leave Centrica after a torrid five years at the helm, which has seen the group lose a sizeable number of British Gas customers and suffer a sliding share price. A replacement for Conn is yet to be found. The company is also temporarily without a permanent chairman after Charles Berry began a leave of absence earlier this week due to a medical condition. Centrica said it expects Berry to return to his duties shortly. Commenting on Centrica's results, Neil Wilson, chief analyst at Markets.com, said: 'Consumers can go elsewhere now. Much like Royal Mail and BT, this monopoly incumbent has lost its way in the new world of competition.' Meanwhile, David Barclay, senior investment manager at Brewin Dolphin, said: 'Today's results cap an undoubtedly difficult year for Centrica with drops across the board and an increase in debt. 'The shares rallied following December's election, but have eased back since with weaker commodity prices undermining the short-lived change in sentiment towards the shares. 'The good news, however, is that management has identified that drastic action is required and is duly taking it to make Centrica a smaller, simpler, and more competitive business. Nevertheless, there is still plenty of work to do and investors will have a keen eye on future updates.'

sarkasm: ISA investors! Should you buy or sell this 5.4% FTSE 100 dividend yield before February? Royston Wild Fool.co.uk24 January 2020 There’s a galaxy of great dividend shares I think you should buy before the beginning of February. Some of these look particularly irresistible at current prices. I wouldn’t consider splashing the cash on Centrica (LSE: CNA) shares any time soon, though. Full-year results are scheduled for February 13 and I fear that a shocking set of trading numbers could be in the offing. I’ve often talked about the rate at which British Gas is haemorrhaging customers. It’s something that the energy giant has failed to get a grip on as tough economic conditions have encouraged more and more households to switch suppliers. Centrica’s customer base shed another 107,000 accounts in the four months to October, its most recent update in late autumn showed. The energy supplier was able to find some crumbs of comfort in that most recent release. It said that the rate of energy supply net losses “was lower than in the first half of the year and significantly lower than in 2018, despite continued high levels of price competition and market switching.” But I’m not convinced that this marks a turning point for Centrica, and latest Energy UK data shows why. According to the trade association, the number of energy switchers in the UK hit another fresh annual record in 2019. This came in at 6.4m and represented a 9% year on year rise. Worryingly for the established suppliers, though, switching activity seems to have accelerated again in the latter part of the year. In December some 519,343 customers changed provider, Energy UK said, up 12% on an annual basis. Double trouble It’s probably no surprise that City analysts are tipping a 38% dip in annual profits at Centrica for 2019. It might not shock you that they’re expecting a BIG reduction in the dividend, too. A 5p per share reward is expected for 2019. Rewards have recently come in at 12p. Those with a glass-half-full approach to life might still be encouraged to invest, however. A rock-bottom forward P/E ratio of 10.1 times is complemented by a gigantic 5.4% dividend yield, after all. Broker consensus suggests that Centrica might finally be about to bounce back too, a 32% earnings rebound predicted for 2020. Too much risk Recent share price action suggests that a lot of optimists have been piling back in. Over the past six weeks Centrica’s share price has leapt 25%. Buying activity was helped by the Tory general election win that vanquished the possibility of nationalisation of utilities firms by a Labour government. That said, I consider recent buying of Centrica shares to be a bit too bold. The business will likely have to engage in some hefty, profits-crushing reductions to stop its customers heading for the exits. And the ‘success’; of the price cap means that further regulatory action could be around the corner (the government estimates that households have shaved £1bn off their bills in 2019). I fully expect Centrica to endure another year of significant profits pressures in 2020. The post ISA investors!

Help shape the future of investing tools and you could win a $250 gift card! Today we’ll do a simple run through of a valuation method used to estimate the attractiveness of Centrica plc (LON:CNA) as an investment opportunity by taking the foreast future cash flows of the company and discounting them back to today’s value. I will use the Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) model. It may sound complicated, but actually it is quite simple! Remember though, that there are many ways to estimate a company’s value, and a DCF is just one method. Anyone interested in learning a bit more about intrinsic value should have a read of the Simply Wall St analysis model. View our latest analysis for Centrica Is Centrica fairly valued? We use what is known as a 2-stage model, which simply means we have two different periods of growth rates for the company’s cash flows. Generally the first stage is higher growth, and the second stage is a lower growth phase. To begin with, we have to get estimates of the next ten years of cash flows. Where possible we use analyst estimates, but when these aren’t available we extrapolate the previous free cash flow (FCF) from the last estimate or reported value. We assume companies with shrinking free cash flow will slow their rate of shrinkage, and that companies with growing free cash flow will see their growth rate slow, over this period. We do this to reflect that growth tends to slow more in the early years than it does in later years. Generally we assume that a dollar today is more valuable than a dollar in the future, and so the sum of these future cash flows is then discounted to today’s value: 10-year free cash flow (FCF) estimate 2019 2020 2021 2022 2023 2024 2025 2026 2027 2028 Levered FCF (£, Millions) £650.82 £739.78 £912.81 £1.06k £812.00 £663.23 £580.62 £532.13 £502.98 £485.54 Growth Rate Estimate Source Analyst x6 Analyst x9 Analyst x8 Analyst x2 Analyst x1 Est @ -18.32% Est @ -12.46% Est @ -8.35% Est @ -5.48% Est @ -3.47% Present Value (£, Millions) Discounted @ 6.55% £610.82 £651.66 £754.67 £824.06 £591.36 £453.34 £372.48 £320.40 £284.24 £257.52 Present Value of 10-year Cash Flow (PVCF)= £5.12b “Est” = FCF growth rate estimated by Simply Wall St After calculating the present value of future cash flows in the intial 10-year period, we need to calculate the Terminal Value, which accounts for all future cash flows beyond the first stage. The Gordon Growth formula is used to calculate Terminal Value at a future annual growth rate equal to the 10-year government bond rate of 1.2%. We discount the terminal cash flows to today’s value at a cost of equity of 6.5%. Terminal Value (TV) = FCF2029 × (1 + g) ÷ (r – g) = UK£486m × (1 + 1.2%) ÷ (6.5% – 1.2%) = UK£9.2b Present Value of Terminal Value (PVTV) = TV / (1 + r)10 = £UK£9.2b ÷ ( 1 + 6.5%)10 = £4.90b The total value is the sum of cash flows for the next ten years plus the discounted terminal value, which results in the Total Equity Value, which in this case is £10.02b. In the final step we divide the equity value by the number of shares outstanding. This results in an intrinsic value estimate of £1.72. Relative to the current share price of £0.86, the company appears quite undervalued at a 50% discount to where the stock price trades currently. Remember though, that this is just an approximate valuation, and like any complex formula – garbage in, garbage out. LSE:CNA Intrinsic value, June 28th 2019 LSE:CNA Intrinsic value, June 28th 2019 The assumptions The calculation above is very dependent on two assumptions. The first is the discount rate and the other is the cash flows. If you don’t agree with these result, have a go at the calculation yourself and play with the assumptions. The DCF also does not consider the possible cyclicality of an industry, or a company’s future capital requirements, so it does not give a full picture of a company’s potential performance. Given that we are looking at Centrica as potential shareholders, the cost of equity is used as the discount rate, rather than the cost of capital (or weighted average cost of capital, WACC) which accounts for debt. In this calculation we’ve used 6.5%, which is based on a levered beta of 0.800. Beta is a measure of a stock’s volatility, compared to the market as a whole. We get our beta from the industry average beta of globally comparable companies, with an imposed limit between 0.8 and 2.0, which is a reasonable range for a stable business. Next Steps: Although the valuation of a company is important, it shouldn’t be the only metric you look at when researching a company. The DCF model is not a perfect stock valuation tool. Rather it should be seen as a guide to “what assumptions need to be true for this stock to be under/overvalued?” If a company grows at a different rate, or if its cost of equity or risk free rate changes sharply, the output can look very different. What is the reason for the share price to differ from the intrinsic value?

sarkasm: invezz Centrica share price sinks as group slashes dividend Tsveta Zikolova Tsveta Zikolova July 30, 2019 2 min read Share this article! Centrica’s (LON:CNA) share price has slumped in London this morning as the company updated investors on its interim performance, posting a fall in revenue and profits and taking the axe to its dividend, amid the UK energy price cap and additional pension contributions which have pressured the company’s cash flow. The British Gas owner further announced that its chief executive Iain Conn was stepping down. As of 08:21 BST, Centrica’s share price had given up 10.33 percent to 81.46p. The shares are significantly underperforming the broader UK market, with the benchmark FTSE 100 index currently standing 0.24 percent higher at 7,705.24 points. ‘Exceptionally challenging environment’ Centrica announced in a statement this morning that its adjusted revenue had dropped two percent to £13.8 billion in the first half of 2019. The group’s EBITDA meanwhile fell 19 percent to £1.9 billion, while the company’s adjusted operating cash flow came in 32 percent lower at £744 million. “Centrica faced an exceptionally challenging environment in the first half of 2019, which impacted earnings and cash flows,” the group’s chief executive Iain Conn said in the statement, adding that the company had “regrettably had to make the decision to rebase the dividend”. The British Gas owner said that it was slashing its interim payout to shareholders by 58 percent to 1.5p per share. The update comes after it emerged earlier this month that the company was planning to lower its payout to shareholders. Chief executive Iain Conn to step down Centrica announced in a separate statement that Iain Conn had agreed with the board that he will step down as CEO and retire from the Board next year. The British Gas owner, however, expects that he will remain with the company at least until next year’s annual general meeting. According to MarketBeat, the British Gas owner currently has a consensus ‘hold’ rating, while the average target on the Centrica share price stands at 113.46p.
