pineapple1: Well if Corbyn got in and nationalised CNA, holders might receive the highest share price traded in 12m as compensation.....lol Not sure we'll be seeing those levels again for some time with the current bearishness towards the industry.

capeview: I wonder if they are somehow trying to price in the huge rise that happened yesterday before close which then pegged back a couple of pence before the close. If it hadn't had that rise it would be roughly what the share price is now. But that shouldn't impact the share price if things are done properly with no hidden agendas and the price should definitely be higher this morning. Then again, just look at how Lloyds shares dropped after the dividend far more than the divi price?? Update. I just wanted to check on something, and I'm thinking the share price is based on the opening price and not the closing price or the previous day. Checking back the last 3 dividends for Centrica, the divi price is the difference on the previous days open not on the previous days close from those days share price details. Not looked at any other company but todays price seems to do the same thing. Look at the opening price and they appear to be the difference of the dividend.

Should investors give Centrica the cold shoulder?By David Brenchley | Mon, 8th May 2017 - 13:56Share thisShould investors give Centrica the cold shoulder?Warmer-than-normal weather so far in 2017 on both sides of the Atlantic might be good news for the British and American public, but the sun has not been shining on utility struggler Centrica (CNA). With electricity consumption down and in an uncertain regulatory environment, the owner of British Gas is in trouble.Year-to-date, Centrica's share price is down 15% after falling as much as 2.5% Monday to a 15-month low, although bargain hunters have since chased them higher.In a first-quarter trading update ahead of its AGM, the £11 billion company reaffirmed that it is on track to achieve targets for the full-year set out in its preliminary results, including operating cash flow of over £2 billion and efficiency savings of £250 million.Net debt is expected to be between £2.5 billion and £3 billion, and positive momentum in the US continues.chart1However, British Gas is haemorrhaging customers, with over quarter of a million in the first three months of the year joining the 400,000 that deserted the energy supplier last year. It's the first time since the 1970s that British Gas's UK residential customer count has fallen below 14 million.Elsewhere, UK wholesale oil, gas and baseload prices have fallen since Centrica's February prelims and it is currently awaiting the political party manifestos ahead of June's general election.Both the Conservatives and Labour are tipped to announce price caps on energy tariffs as an election vote-winner. The Tories reckon political intervention will knock an average £100 per year off consumers' energy bills.But Centrica hit back, claiming "evidence from other countries would suggest this will lead to reduced competition and choice, and potentially higher average prices". It went on to add that it was "competitively well-positioned" for changes. Let's hope so.Has Centrica bottomed out?Broker UBS has already downgraded its view on Centrica due to the potential of an energy tariff cap, which it said back in April is now more likely. It reduced its recommendation from 'buy' to 'neutral', slashing its 12-month target price by 16%.It reckons a cap on the standard tariff could reduce retail margins by a third from 2018 – a conservative estimate on which to base its new target price. "[We] reduce target price to 215p, reflecting both a lower earnings per share (EPS) and a higher required dividend yield to recognise the higher risk on the shares," analyst Sam Arie explained."In the downside case, if margins were reduced by two-thirds, the shares could fall to 185p." It's unlikely we will have full visibility until some time after the election, though. This, Arie says, means the shares are unlikely to regain ground in the coming months.The chart above shows historic support at around the current 200p level (pink line), and this appears to be holding up again. Centrica shares aren't obviously expensive either.On UBS estimates for 2017 earnings per share (EPS) of 15.9p and 15.6p next year, they trade on a forward price/earnings (PE) ratio of 12.5 versus 14 times in recent history. UBS forecasts are is conservative, too. Using more generous consensus estimates brings that PE multiple down even further. And a prospective dividend yield of over 5% is also attractive.That said, political uncertainty creates problems for investors ahead of next month's general election, and this is one for the brave just now.This article is for information and discussion purposes only and does not form a recommendation to invest or otherwise.

mj19: Does Centrica have more dividend appeal than BP, HSBC and BHP Billiton after trading statement?WILL THE CENTRICA PLC (LON:CNA) (CNA.L) SHARE PRICE RISE FASTER THAN SHARES IN BP PLC (LON:BP) (BP.L), HSBC HOLDINGS PLC (LON:HSBA) (HSBA.L) AND BHP BILLITON PLC (LON:BLT) (BLT.L) DUE TO SUPERIOR DIVIDEND APPEAL?May 8, 2017 Robert Stephens BHP Billiton (LON:BLT), BP (LON:BP), Centrica (LON:CNA), HSBC (LON:HSBA) 0Centrica PLCCentrica PLCThe Centrica PLC (LON:CNA) (CNA.L) share price has dropped 2% after it released a trading statement ahead of its AGM later today. The company's operating performance in the year to date has been as expected, with most operational inputs and parameters as per guidance. Adjusted operating cash flow is expected to be above £2 billion, with group capital investment expected to be no more than £1 billion. This includes small acquisitions of less than £100 million each, as well as E&P capex of around £500 million.Progress is being made on Centrica's efficiency programme. Efficiency savings of £250 million are expected in addition to the 2016 savings of £384 million. This is part of Centrica's £750 million per annum cost efficiency programme. As part of this, the company's LFL direct headcount reduction is expected to be approximately 1500 during the year.Closing net debt is expected to be between £2.5 billion-£3 billion, with incremental revenue investment of around £100 million in growth areas.In spite of the above, warmer than expected weather in the year to date has meant lower than forecast consumption in the UK and North America. UK wholesale oil, gas and baseload power prices have fallen since the company's results in February.With a dividend yield of 6%, the Centrica share price could hold its own against popular dividend shares such as BP plc (LON:BP) (BP.L), HSBC Holdings plc (LON:HSBA) (HSBA.L) and BHP Billiton plc (LON:BLT) (BLT.L) in my view. BP currently yields 6.8%, HSBC has a dividend yield of 6% and BHP Billiton shares are expected to yield 5.9% this year.In my opinion, the Centrica share price could perform relatively well in the long run. While I think there may be some challenges as it puts in place an ambitious change in strategy, it seems to be making progress with efficiencies. While I'm optimistic about the share prices of BP, HSBC and BHP Billiton, I feel Centrica could perform well on a relative basis.

4seeaproblem: I guess we need to hear more from the AGM. 261k customer losses in 5 months is both a plus & negative for CNA. I expected a little more of a proactive response about the political interference. Conn seems to just keep accepting what is thrown at CNA, he needs to really emphasise the implications and consequences. He needs to start earning his rather large salary...the share price was 280p when he was appointed.

goldpiguk: Hi susiebe, Agreed. Having bought LLOY, HSBA and HFEL at various points I watched as the prices sank below the prices I had paid. All three are now well into profit. It is virtually impossible to time the purchase of an individual share at its low point. The longer term outlook is what I am interested in. Centrica will have its first chance to influence its share price with the trading statement in just five working days time. I expect it will be more positive than the market anticipates, notwithstanding political concerns. Any Government interference will, I believe, have a limited impact on the profitability of CNA going forward. That is why I have been happy to tuck this share away although the market may decide to wait until the next numbers are published before making up its mind. Goldpig

4seeaproblem: portside Could you just outline your trading strategy for me please. Are you just trading in the two shares, CNA & Barc and running a trending graph against the two ?. Is your strategy, not so much the actual share price of each but the relative difference between them and you seek to switch between them to increase the number of shares owned in each (or both)...presumably for dividend income. Is that correct ?

4seeaproblem: Yes, but BP's share price has risen 20% from its recent low.. CNA share price however now approaching its recent low again, that was previously seen in 2009.So approaching a 6 year low. I have to confess this new CEO looks to be out of his depth. ....not a peep from him or the Board. His prime responsibility is supposedly to provide shareholder value !
