Yeah, but the NAVs are just what the board think their subsidiaries are worth based on cashflows and growth assumptions none of us know.
GRID unaudited NAV per share of 129p compared to the current shareprice of 38p. GSF unaudited NAV per share of 111p compared to the current shareprice of 64p. Crazy !
No position in either, just monitoring.

GRID RNS just out - RIP their dividend and buybacks for the rest of the year, effectively allowing their share price to melt further.

HEIT positive update. UK Revenues improving. Should be a positive read across.
I suspect you are overthinking it. I think maybe the seller has finished - at least for now - but the buyers are not yet out there in numbers until the route map is clearer
It does feel like a base has formed. At least the price isn't spiking around and it feels like neither the buyers or sellers are in a hurry.

My suspicion is that there are buyers out there knowing there are still sellers and they are trying to collect what they can without disturbing the price. On the other hand I think the sellers also know the buyers are out there and are being patient and trying to get the best price they can.

One sign of a basing pattern might be for the share price to hold firm when the index is largely falling around it... Suggesting it has nowhere further to go, short of a disastrous revelation. Profound scepticism is surely already in the price.
"I decided to put more of my money where my mouth is and added two more names – Gore Street Energy Storage (GSF) and NextEnergy Solar (NESF) – to my existing exposure in Bluefield Solar (BSIF), Greencoat UK Wind (UKW) and SDCL Energy Efficiency Income (SEIT). The two new holdings came with dividend yields of about 11.5%, reflecting their sizeable discounts. GSF, as I have explained previously, is much less exposed to the problematic UK energy storage market than other listed peers and should see plenty of upside as its new plants in Ireland, Texas and California come onstream over the course of the next year or two." James Carthew, Citywire Columnist, 15/04/24

Annual dividend of 7.5p produces a yield of 11.8% at todays ASK of 63.6p !

Big Rock is fully funded with a £50m credit option undrawn. I dont think the funding there is an issue
Fair enough, it is a long way from getting back to the heady heights of a premium to NAV, and will take a lot to go right, to get back closer to NAV
He did say that which is a huge red flag when they have sunk costs into so many expensive batteries which currently produce miniscule revenues. Anyway I have no massive beef with GSF but "batteries are the future" -> "GSF to the moon" mentality is really missing so so much. On the more positive side the share price already reflects a lot of the prior mistakes.
He also said that battery replacement costs had significantly reduced.
"Considering that most of the portfolio has either been built recently, and much of the expansion already funded either from cash or at project level, and making the most of lower costs, the above comment is a bit daft"

Really? From what I could see it's only:

"£66m in cash or cash equivalents as of 31 December 2023."

and they have a lot of spend to do in the US to build out their capacity which from memory is way lower than they need.

I find it quite amusing that investors can wave away costs by calling the funding "Project level debt".

Then you have the depreciation problem that looks horrendous if we believe the lifetime of the batteries given by the CEO in a recent webcast linked to above.

Good luck though.

Well I had just a last last top up with some spare pennies I found round the back of my ISA, so...

I'll let wiser heads than mine decide the level of the sustainable dividend, but in the meantime it looks like a base to me.

and thats one thing they do tell us - they have the funds
Considering that most of the portfolio has either been built recently, and much of the expansion already funded either from cash or at project level, and making the most of lower costs, the above comment is a bit daft
The problem is that GSF have spent a fortune on batteries which they'll probably never see much of a return on since battery prices have dropped up to 90%. Yes they have other projects to bring online but very little cash to achieve that. Going forwards I can't see why their sunk costs can be recovered and why new entrants can't drive down the cost of storage with much lower capex costs.

Good luck tho.

The information expectations here do seem to be out of line with other investments and it does seem to cause people unnecessary stress and annoyance

If I am investing in Shell or BP, do I expect to know how much oil they pumped each month, what their monthly average selling price for the crude was, how their rig maintenance and upgrade programme has progressed that month?

Personally I take a sector view - whether on oil, on UK Small cap, or on batteries in this case and then if I like the sector prospects I pick the investment(s) that I prefer in that sector

So, the question is - do you feel positive about batteries?
If no, then divest - plenty of other opportunities
If yes then ask yourself if this the best pick in the sector (I'd say yes, though many commentators seem to prefer GRID, for reasons I can't fathom)

Just my world view, may not work for others

they will to some extent, but they wont build enough gas plants to cover all eventualities (and they probably dont want to). because UK has legally agreed to some emission reductions. i dont know if they will take these agreeents as seriously as the human rights laws but i guess UK is trying to keep some kind of reputation so they will try to.

we dont know how sensitive climate is to CO2 so there is an 80% chance we can continue and reduce slowly and be fine, but there is a very non 0 chance that we will have major warming if we dont reduce CO2 quickly. its a bit like russian roulette and you will be willing to go out of your way not to play it if you can.

...or just fire up a gas turbine? I don't get it.
the good thing about gore street (especially when combined with say a solar generator) is that in extreme/volatile events and grid instability, they actually benefit. as a result i would say its best not to own just a solar producer or bess, but to own both. the future there will be storms, scenarios where power from continent is not available, data center demand increases etc - these tend to create volatility which is good for BESS. in the mean time, combining with a solar producer is good as solar seems to be a good bet for zonal pricing (which the uk seems intent on introducing). zonal pricing would mean electricity prices are higher in the south (where the solar is also located) thus this benefits solar a lot in the south. additionaly, zonal pricing should benefit battery storage as it gives more variability in the prices of electricity.

in short - both gore street and say solar producers probably give you some 'optionality' in their revenues - meaning they have positive skew to volatility i.e. any grid problems or demand increases plus zonal pricing changes can only increase their revenues

CC2014, the crucial basis of an investment, or divestment decision is, or should be, information. (which is they assessed based on pesonal investment strategy, risk appetite and other data sources beyond pure corporate information)

Ergo its reasonable to focus on the lack of, or poor quality of, corporate information.

Add into that, opinion and insight (enter stage left... this board to share opinion) and you get....discussion. Ta daaaaaa. Everyone's opinion can vary on the same corporate information as it needs to be placed within the context of broader economic information as well as personal strategy and risk appetite.

For what its worth, once I research Alibaba's view and confirm its accurate then

1. GSF doesnt meet my risk appetite, in particular my risk reward ratio (I dont care its on ~50% of its NAV, chances are that means the NAV is wrong, the company is opaque, wilfully so when examples of good, crisp, honest report are still around)

2. It doesn't meet my personal strategy (an inflation proofed investment that can grow over 3-ish years to provide a 10% return over the long-term)

Once I have made the decision to get out the next step is execution. Do I sell immediately, get the pain over and go down the pub to console myself? Do I wait for some temporary rally?

Tomorrow may see a few new bottoms - so to speak!
I think 8/9% yield would be very acceptable. 12% is generally a sign that it's not sustainable. Chart suggests to me that the share price has bottomed. But we are all trying to second guess, to some extent. Lots of value out there at the moment.
