Invesco, Woodford, Schroder and Investec together hold a 50% stake in Drax. Big names have faith in the company moving forwards.

Hard to believe this was trading above 800p as recently as 2014. NAV/book price is still around 500p and Drax has an important role in providing 7% of the UK's electricity needs. With net assets of >£2Bn surely the share price deserves to be higher?

"The Indians and Chinese are building 100s of new power stations between them (under the Paris Accord) so why do Drax have to faff around with woodchips?" Because it is about world CO2 emmissions and it isn't perfect. Waiting for perfection isn't going to reduce CO2 emmissions. I suggest people read that article I have posted above because it undermines the primary USP of Drax in that they sell their business on the basis of providing back-up and stable/reliable energy when renewables are insufficient to meet demand. I am currently a shareholder here.

Still not convinced by this. I like the underlying assets, but turning it into a green play is doomed I suspect, post eu.The Indians and Chinese are building 100s of new power stations between them (under the Paris Accord) so why do Drax have to faff around with woodchips?

I wonder about the quality of Mir's research here. "This compares with the present share price of 315p, a sharp contrast to the 800p plus only last year." Must have missed that day it hit £8. hTTps://wallstreetwires.com/drax-takeover-save-woodfords-reputation/ (If you adjust the http bit it will stop the advfn block on links)

Could Drax benefit from the electric car revolution with the predicted increase in demand for power. (December 2016 article on Drax website so not independent comment) hTTps://www.drax.com/energy-policy/power-and-the-rise-of-electric-cars/ "Drax, as operator of the UK’s largest biomass power station and with plans for new, rapid response open cycle gas turbines (OCGTs), is well placed to be at the forefront of providing reliable, affordable power in the event of a widespread rollout of electric vehicles. The OCGTs in particular, are designed for use in peak times which, in the future, could be when the nation’s electric vehicles are plugged in overnight – today this is when electricity demand is at its lowest."

If you remove derivative contracts of unearned gains/losses, it produces a clearer picture of Drax's operations. The fall in commodities had a big impact. http://bit.ly/2rssqVr

The company has been a subpar performer for L-T holders with inconsistent dividend payments. Recently, it recovered some lost ground. There are some things investors may find interesting in 2017: - -Net Profit won’t be boosted by Forex gains and derivative contracts unless both the Pound and commodities prices took a dive. -Net Profit won’t be boosted by Opus Energy because they made £14m. -Free cash flow will turn negative this year. -And, total debt will rise to £750m to £800m, with annual interest costs ranging from £40m to £50m. For more, please visit: http://bit.ly/2qz30Jg What do the analysts think? From 17 analysts, they think about the following: - -Analysts are confident that dividend payment will increase to 9 pence per share in 2017 and rise to 14 pence, a year later. -EPS is expected to rise to 9 pence this year and jump to 17 pence a year later. -Revenue is forecast to grow by £3.5bn this year and rising to £3.62bn.

Today's announcement is interesting... So when we see headlines about no coal power being used, then station is in use, but burning wood!

zcaprd7 16 Feb '17 "I think it might be the passing over of uncertainty to shareholders, via the dividend policy?" Some would see that as prudence. They could be more assertive on dividend policy and get it wrong and then be in the position of oil majors paying dividends - some would argue - they cannot afford.

Yes it seems like it. I'll probably sell my holding and move on..
