FTSE 100 reshuffle: Royal Mail, ITV forecast to exit, Centrica on the up

The FTSE 100 fell on Friday despite increases across Europe
UBS Group AG -

Energy security is likely to be a prominent feature in the FTSE 100 reshuffle next Wednesday amid Russia’s war on Ukraine and soaring energy prices.

Analysts predict British Gas owner Centrica PLC (LSE:CNA) (Centrica PLC (LSE:CNA)) will get upgraded into the top bracket as demand for energy rises and the market gains clarity around taxation on oil and gas profits from the so-called ‘windfall tax’ announced by Chancellor Rishi Sunak yesterday.

The Quarterly Review will be determined based on Tuesday’s (May 31) closing share prices and Centrica’s star has been rising.

Today it was trading at 75.8p, valuing ther group at around £4.6bn even with some turbulence after yesterday's announcements with the market torn over what Sunak’s announcement meant for the power companies.

UBS said that “assuming a 10% tax on a windfall of £100/MWh, we could see earnings impacts of 5% or above for the most exposed names (SSE, EDF and Centrica)”.

However, if the windfall tax “were structured as a levy and was in place for three years or less," the investment bank said the valuation impact on companies such as Centrica would be "much lower" at about 1-4%.

In a trading update this month, Centrica said it expects its annual earnings per share for this year to be at the top end of analysts’ estimates.

Brokers were also impressed by Centrica’s uptick in nuclear and gas revenues, recent cost savings and effective disposals of assets to shore up its balance sheet.

The supplier's main subsidiary British Gas remains the dominant gas and electricity supplier in the UK market, so the lift in the energy price cap in the autumn is expected to put it on a firmer footing.

Power prices have increased by about £125 per megawatt-hour compared to the forward price a year ago, said UBS. This is on the one hand a boon for supply-end sales, but a drag on wholesale costs.

While Centrica faces higher wholesale costs, Hargreaves Lansdown said its hedge positions have been a “protective haven” against surges.

Could the Centrica dividend come back soon?

Our writer considers the chances of the Centrica dividend coming back soon to help build his passive income streams.

Christopher Ruane❯

Published 19 April, 12:46 pm BST



Back in the day, one of the attractions of holding shares in British Gas owner Centrica (LSE: CNA) was its dividend. Thanks to the profitability of the company’s business with its large installed user base, the dividend was juicy. Today the company trades as a penny share. But eight years ago the annual dividend was over 17p per share.

That was later cut to 12p per share before being abandoned altogether during the pandemic. But with Centrica seeing a strong business recovery, could the payout be making a comeback soon?


Centrica business recovery

The business’s performance last year suggests that Centrica may finally have turned a corner in its road back to business health. Statutory earnings attributable to shareholders from ongoing businesses jumped to £586m from a prior year loss. That meant statutory basic earnings per share came in at 10p. At the current Centrica share price, the price-to-earnings ratio is under eight. That looks cheap to me.

The company has streamlined its business and sold off sizeable assets. That brings some risk of concentration – Centrica remains heavily exposed to the UK gas market. That means it can suffer if gas prices crash. I also see longer-term risks of gas demand falling as alternative energy sources become more widely used.

But the sales have also helped Centrica in ways I think could make it more attractive for my portfolio. Management should now be more focused, something that I think has been a struggle for the business before, especially when it comes to dealing with retail customer complaints. Crucially, the sale proceeds and business performance mean the balance sheet is now in much better condition then a couple of years ago. The firm ended last year with £700m in net cash, compared to net debt of £3bn just 12 months previously.


Centrica dividend prospects

With those sorts of earnings, I reckon the company could afford to bring back its dividend at the moment. Not only have earnings returned to a substantial level, so has free cash flow. Last year it came in at £1.2bn from the company’s continuing operations.

So, why has the dividend not already been restored? I do not think there is a compelling reason frankly. The company pointed to regular pension negotiations that are due to conclude in the next couple of months and said that it “should soon be in a position to restart paying a dividend”. That at least suggests that it could reintroduce the dividend, perhaps later this year.

But I suspect the dividend may not be restored at its pre-pandemic level. Asset sales mean future earnings may not match previous ones. On top of that, current management does not exactly seem enthusiastic about restoring the dividend.
My next move on Centrica

Being a Centrica shareholder, February’s final results announcement struck me as a missed opportunity. The company is earnings lots of money and generating sizeable free cash flows. I see no compelling reason to delay the restoration of dividends.

The Centrica share price has grown 37% in the past year and the dividend outlook is less attractive than it was a few years ago. For that reason I am considering selling my Centrica shares to invest in what I regard as a more reliable passive income pick.

Not really helpful to look back at the History of CNA

Its a changed company

5 years ago there was a 200p share price approx

Those that were lucky enough to buy in during April 2020 at around 35p obviously must be pleased if they held until the current share price today

We now await to see if it has further to rise

high 80s into the 90s maybe

The CNA share price has taken a right hit over the lsst 4 years or so. One person I can think of got sucked in on the way down, thinking it had a bargain, and now regrets its decision. On a 2-3 year view there are better shares out there, such as insurance company Saga. Anyone heard from jeanettetigger? Cio.
